Since my last post life has been a series of happenings–I mean when isn’t it that? But recently it has been one thing after another non-stop. I say this as I’m typing right before I head out for a dentist appointment. So, you can say life has been much more busy than usual. With settling into the red door, making time for family + friends, working and maintaining our new household, while nurturing our own selves, it’s been an experience balancing it all. I can only imagine how it would be with lil babes or even a dog thrown into the mix. *No that isn’t a hint to anything happening any time soon, haha*
It’s been about 2.5 weeks since Jake and I moved into our place that I have nicknamed, “The Red Door.” Moments have been spent unpacking boxes, making trips to stores, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cooking and settling into this humble abode. I am truly in love with this open, airy gem and each day we are here it becomes more of a home filled with memories.
If you’ve peeped the title there’s a new series in town on Creatively Victoria called “F L O U R I SH” that’ll be centered on leaving the nest and living on your own. My boyfriend, Jake and I made it a summer goal to move-in together and we found a place! During our rather short process (i.e. saw it on Sunday, applied on Monday, had an interview on Tuesday and got offered it that night) I wanted to share our first home journey–from finding the right place to decorating it and utilizing your space. Despite how quickly we scored our first home, we were avidly preparing + looking for quite a few months, and learned some tips that definitely helped us in our search. I’ll be sharing all of these to help you on your own home journey if you’re ready to leave the coop.
Ever since summer kicked off I have had my eyes set on one thing, denim. And not just any denim that is—denim shoes. They’re my latest fashion crush that I cannot get enough of. Whenever I think of them I’m just like, “denim, denim, denim”…and then I remind myself of the noises in a Super Mario game. My shoe obsession has had me breaking in any pair of denim shoes I get my hands on like no tomorrow. They’re comfy, durable and add a fresh vibe to anything I pair them with—what’s not to love?
I’ll be sharing my denim shoe love with all of you showcasing the 3 pairs I wear the most…okay, wear Sun-Mon honestly because I’m in love! First up, these pair of denim mules that I had my eyes on from F21. I call these my fancy slippers since they remind me of house slippers, but you can certainly wear them out. Paired with a pj inspired look and you have an outfit that creates a fun spin with your favorite lounge wear.
Happy March! Hope this month has kicked off on a beautiful note for each of you. This month feels like a pure, good one for some reason and I am glowing with all the energy I’m feeling from it. Speaking of feeling—the warm weather has certainly visited us on the East Coast making spring feel an arm’s reach away. You know how everyone has at least one favorite month? For a little mine was summer, mostly in high school, since that was the majority favorite. Then for a time in college it was fall and then it was winter. Now though, as the season changes, so does my favorite and you probably are thinking it already; yes, spring has become my new favorite.
