Skippy Says: Grand Plans (OOTD)

This weekend, Ryan and I met with an architect to start preparing plans for the house we bought. Oh, sorry, did I not mention that before? Um, yeah, we bought a house. It actually happened this past May, and closing was two days before my law school finals started. What can I say? Timing is not my thang. Although we bought the house about 6 months ago, we haven't been able to move in because we had to give the tenants that lived there time to vacate. They'll be moving out December 15th though, which means we can start gutting and renovating. Wheeeeeeee.

The architect is planning to survey and measure our house this coming week, so we wanted to give him an idea of what we want it to look like and some non-negotiables for us. Ok, me. Like a big walk-in-closet in the master. Where else am I gonna put all this crap stuff I bought on Black Friday?









Shop:
- Anthropologie jacket (Black Friday find for $50. Not available online, may still be in some stores. Buy kind of similar here)
- Banana Republic Factory store top (Bought on sale circa 2009, no longer available)
- American Eagle pants (Black Friday find for $24. Buy here)
- H&M belt (No longer available, buy similar here or here)
- Fergie via DSW booties (Bought on sale. Not available online, may still be in some stores. Buy similar here or here)

  39. Inna! You look beeeeeautiful! You always do. Did I ever tell you that I always wanted to be a red head? I did. Desperately. I even went so far as to die my hair back in high school. It did not end well. My roots ended up looking orange, which made me look (and feel) blue. =( <--- like that.

  46. Hmm ... I've been pondering what hue of colored pants to buy. You are very persuasive with that awesome blue! And great price as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes, cobalt blue is the way to go! I also got them on extra discount because it was black friday, but I think they're still only $45 regularly if you don't want to wait for another sale

    ReplyDelete
  48. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color palette. Perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  49. A huge closet should be mandatory! Loving the orange top! So pretty against that blue. :D
