It’s been sometime since I’ve last posted. So much has changed and the days have been passing at the speed of light. I hope to start posting more, as it’s an outlet for all that is going on. This blog might be a little different.There will be some style, books, my hamster, outfits, some soap box complaining about the difficulties of managing a team, coffee shops, my progression on going back to school while working full-time, and a little bit about my relationship (at his approval).
It’s June but the last two days have been in the low 60s and upper 50s, Wisconsin weather gotta love it! The cool air, rain drizzle, and fog over the lake puts me in a fall frame of mind. I start thinking about warm chunky cable knit sweaters, leggings, boots, hot drinks, a good book, and a relaxing place to sit.
PS. I apologize for the poor looking fashion board, I didn’t have my laptop with Photoshop with me
When every day life gets to be too much and you just need a break where do you go in your mind to relax and think everything through? It would be great to be able to just take a mini vacation every time you need a break from it all but for most of us that is impossible.
For me I picture a quiet room with a large picture window. When looking outside the scenery is always a forest at the peak colors in Autumn. A cream city brick wood burning fireplace, that never runs out of wood, is at the side of the room keeping it warm. An overstuffed suede gray couch with black, teal, and white pillows, and a couple of white soft faux fur blankets sits in the middle of the room looking out the window yet angled toward the fire. There is a plush cream color rug, one that your feet sink into, in front of the couch on the old worn wood floor. Next to the couch is a dark-wood side table with a mint lavender tea in a pink cup and a soft black leather journal with the perfect weighted black ink pen sitting on top. A stack of my favorite books in hard cover are on the floor in front of the table. And I am sitting in the middle of the couch in warm black leggings, oversized comfy Irish fisherman’s sweater with my hair falling across my face. Meditating in my perfect room where I can relax and clear the fog.
Where do you go?
For some reason I have always wanted to move to Maine and buy a house next to the ocean. I think this came from a little story I read a lot as a child.
First Outfit that I have put together in this manner, so sorry for the half done image hopefully it doesn’t look too bad. Most of the things are from H&M. I’ve been a bit obsessed with the store lately. They have a good selection of clothes at a lower price. This outfit is something that I would definitely get, actually I’m waiting for those leggings to be in stock so I can order them. The ‘The Who’ shirt is awesome. I remember my parent’s playing their records, yes those things, when I was younger. I think this outfit would be nice for going to the cafe, library, walking around downtown.
