Lots of things happening over here. The biggest is our house reno. What a TASK. The house is basically going to be new when we are done. New and
fucking awesome I might add. The husband and I are mostly agreeing on most things, which is all that I can ask for. The bad part is the time and money. Time is ticking by at an alarming rate, and I don’t want to pay rent + a mortgage again. Which means we have 4 weeks. 4 weeks to get a new kitchen, bathroom, floors, electrical, plumbing, paint and trim. NBD. Since all I have right now are before pictures, I am just going to wait until we have afters to share anything on the blog. You can follow our progress on instagram (@summersantana).
With the crazy investment of renovating a house, that means no fall clothes for me. So boring. The only thing I have bought recently is this Ily Couture sweatshirt. I wore out the ‘Oh My Chic’ version from last year, so I knew this would be a necessity.
I’m getting my hair done today! Only two weeks overdue. Root city over here. Speaking of hair, I love this shampoo/conditioner and best of all, it is cheap. Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion
Our five year wedding anniversary is Friday. The husband will be at the DU Banquet to celebrate. So sweet.
I can’t remember all of the other things I was going to post about now that I finally sat down at the computer. What is going on with y’all?
The smoking flat, slipper, loafer, whatever you want to call it is has made an enormous comeback to the mainstream. Atop the loafer caste system would be Stubbs & Wootton. A classic name and design, but far from boring. Here are my personal favorites that mix a little cheeky with tradition.
Available for fall, a couple gorgeous jewel tone leopard prints, seen here in the green. LOVE.
F U, my personal favorite.
You can also customize your own slippers. I find these WASPy kicks quite appealing.
Everybody is loving the leaping zebra these days. And a beagle, too.
Add some ming to your step.
First Zara and now H&M! Finally e-commerce has happened for us here in the USofA. I will say I was not overcome with online shopping euphoria when browsing the site. Hopefully there will be more selection in the future. Am I alone with this thought? Regardless, my add to cart looks like this…
I definitely love the mixed media look we started seeing a lot last fall, and I want to pull the trigger this year. This shape is one of my favorites for coats.
The jumpsuit makes me think of Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, but I find it appealing nonetheless.
I love anything with a dog printed on it. Unless it is a pug. Sorry pug lovers.
Tortoise pointed pumps, yes please.
Followed by some classic, comfy pieces in my favorite daring colors…white & gray.
Sidenote: I finished up Orange is the New Black today. Who else is watching? What say you?
