As I mentioned in my last post, I am finally getting a chance to reacquaint myself with my home. But unfortunately, while the big project is nearly finished (the new floors are almost all in!), there is still quite a long, hefty list of little things that need to be done too.
So oh, it is far from being over.
While it has been extremely fun (and entertaining) to see our house being transformed, we still have shit everywhere. And I mean everywhere. It is everywhere it is not supposed to be, which means it’s also a little chaotic–kitchen appliances are in one of the guest bedrooms, office stuff is in the kitchen, the pool table is piled in all of our clothes, and puppies are constantly wiggling around and getting their tails into the wet trim paint. Aye chihuahua.
To make things even more fun, we have guests arriving tomorrow to stay with us! I just hope they know that they will be greeted with a big, dirty hug from me, but only so I can sneakily pass off a broom to them as I’m doing it. Maybe we’ll even have a little party and play some games this weekend, including hide-and-go-seek–but only so we can figure out where the heckity-heck everything is. First person to find my sanity (and my favorite bra, and my watch, and most of my jewelry, and the three mini Twix bars I picked up to eat this afternoon, but didn’t, and now I don’t know where they are but the last time this happened they were in the plants) wins! The win this nice gift from Jonathan Adler. GET TO WORK.
On to the outfit. Thankfully, I have acquired a lil’ bit of new jewelry during this remodel (since my usual stash is MIA) and today I am wearing the beautiful Daphiney Earrings sent from the very lovely people over at Kendra Scott. I often forget about earrings, as I am much more of a bracelet/ring/necklace fiend, but I think these earrings are a perfectly-pretty change of pace.
It is also hard to see from these pictures, but my earrings, bag, and nails all match! It’s the simple things that make me happy, shhhh:
Skirt: ASOS Double Layer skirt in “arabian spice” (buy it here, on sale!) (similar style here) (& here at Topshop) (& a pretty pleated version here + take 20% off with code “HAPPYLFW”)
Ring: Forever 21 (buy it here – $5!)
Nail Polish: Essie Mamba (buy it here)
Earrings: Kendra Scott-Daphiney Earrings in Amythest (buy them here)
