changed . . .
I used to be such a morning person, you know the kind that a lot of people just want to slap. All bouncy and happy and full of immediate energy.
But over the last year I have grown into a grumpy not morning person. I move slow and feel like everyone and everything is annoying. I put my robe on inside out and my slippers on the wrong feet. Arg, you get the picture?
It might have something to do with the fact that I wake up at 5 AM every single day. But, I didn’t even know a change like this could happen. I miss waking up full of energy and smiles for the day. I always felt like it was a new day and anything good could happen. Has anyone else experienced this type of change.
I hope this is just a phase . . .
I can’t believe for so long I posted a blog every single Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Now it is a struggle to get one out. It’s mostly due to my interests being more on family, health and home this summer. I have been busy setting up our house here in the city and I’m not good at taking pictures of the process so I have been trying to figure out a path back to my blog.
By golly though I think I have figured it out. I think one a week for a while will be fun. I will incorporate my fashion, decorating my home and other things new while I rediscover life in the busy city.
This post will be about my boot cut jeans style, getting my library card and what I am reading and showing you my formal living room. I will also ask your decorating advice on a huge pottery shelf area.
I haven’t been doing any clothing shopping and really don’t need to do any. My closet is full of lovely fall items that I can use to create that cozy chic look that I love this time of year.
Here I am wearing a Loft shirt in blue strips with beautiful tie bell sleeves, WHBM boot cut jeans in a dark denim, Louise et cie heels in navy and carrying my Italian leather Adora bag in vibrant orange.
Linking my jeans brand WHBM, and options for creating your own look!
I like to call this room my drawing room.
1. a room where visitors are received and entertained; living room; sitting room
Some would call it a formal living room and it is the room you walk into at the front door which I love. It’s a peaceful room that is always tidy so if guests drop by we have a comfortable place to visit. I sit here in the afternoons and read while I have a glass of ice tea.
The room’s decor is made up of a hodgepodge of things old and new, more expensive, less expensive, formal and casual. It has coastal elements, hints of French style, a little rustic edge and room for lots of future projects. I never tire of tweaking a room. I have few things in mind to change soon and by the time I post this I have already changed the rug at the door. I had just thrown an old one down until I found one I liked. I also added a throw pillow to the sofa in a muted yellow to bring out the yellow in the chairs.
Don’t forget your fall mug! I love having themed mugs for my coffee and here are some fun options!
I always like a little surprise in every room. Something unexpected tucked in a corner. That is where Mr. squirrel comes in. Isn’t this cute wood and metal guy fun?
These pictures are taken from the Juliet balcony off the master bedroom. I love this view.
this space is very large. probably 5 ft wide and 6 ft tall and about 2 ft deep. i don’t want to do antiques or faux plants but something fun and different. any ideas?
I need coffee and my slippers are perfect for such an announcement. And every September I allow myself to indulge in the perfect dinner, fruit and veggies. Ha ha!
oh boo one more thing
This post is really getting long but I wanted to tell you a couple more things. We joined the YMCA and I will tell you more about that in a later post but I am amazed at the fabulous facility they have and all that is offered.
Also, we have a new smart TV which is so fun and I now watch You Tube all the time on the big screen. I have discovered this fabulous interior designer that I wanted to share with you. She makes me smile and gets my creative juices flowing so check her out if you like that sort of thing.
