Hi everyone! I wanted to share a summer outfit with you (featuring a floral cold-shoulder top and denim shorts) and give you a quick life update.
Life Update: New home!
I think the biggest life update is that Damon and I are moving to a new home! We bought a new place last December (wow can’t believe that was 7 months ago) and it’s been undergoing an extensive renovation since April. By the time our renovations are finished (our fingers are crossed for next week), the only thing that’s original will be the guest shower and everything else will be brand new and custom designed by us with our interior designer.
In the past seven months we’ve reviewed countless drawings, specs, estimates and images and looked at numerous samples. This was a new process for both of us and I really enjoyed the experience. I loved making decisions with Damon and he handled the communication, finances, and everything so well during what was probably his busiest and most stressful season of work ever. I am so thankful to have a partner who does things the right way. I can’t stress that enough and it’s by far my biggest thanksgiving through the whole process. Damon hired an interior designer and a general contractor so we’ve had professionals working to create our vision from the very start. Damon never once tried to cut corners and since DIY is neither our interest nor our strength (and we both have full time jobs), he never once suggested it. I love him so much!
A thousand decisions and one meltdown later (I promise to write a post on our renovations), we are so close to moving in!
Moving & Packing
We are taking some time off this week and next week to pack up our lives and move everything over to our new place. Our new place is not quite ready yet – unfinished kitchen and no plumbing lol – but I’m praying that everything will arrive and be installed in time. We’ve made decisions on most of our new furniture and I spent a small fortune on Canada Day weekend ordering new dinnerware. I can’t WAIT to host our families and friends!
Any tips for packing and moving?
– Bardot floral wrap top (it’s 70% off here). There’s also a dress version of the top.
– Joe’s denim shorts
– Marc Fisher wedge ‘Adalyn’ espadrille wedge sandals that I mentioned in my last post. The sandals fit true to size (I’m wearing a size 5). There’s also a perforated leather version.
– J.Crew Betty sunglasses
– Tory Burch mini bag (similar and similar)
– Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick in Devious Dolly
