M.I.A...Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer...
Here are a few images in remembrance of summer and the birth of my little blog.

Today, I said goodbye to summer and (it's about to get a little personal :) my best friend, who also happens to be my boyfriend. We go to different universities (about 3 hrs from each other) and today, due to Hurrican Fay, I had to say my tearful 'so long'. I shouldn't have cried as much as I did. Oh well! I will see him 2 weeks from now...

I will miss this summer.

But at least I have something to look forward to... decorating my apartment!
On Thursday, I move back up to school and I will dive head first into putting the finishing touches on my room. These interior spaces make me so happy and one can only dream of having a room like this.

As I say goodbye to summer, I wave hello to fall.

MIA...I have been missing in action and I will probably be for a little while longer. School starts next monday (25th) and it will probably require most if not all of my time...

Banana Pancakes and Dreamscapes

Currently, I'm working on getting my FIRST apartment together up at school. All summer I have been dreaming of a unique room primarily draped in rich colors such as yellow, green and turqiouse. Unfortunately, I have been dreaming of a room that I can't quite turn into a physical reality. Don't get me wrong, it is getting there, but it is also taking a bit longer than expected.

So to help me gather my thoughts, I refer to the numerous blogs that provide interior design inspiration. Blogs not unlike the one I happily stumbled across a few weeks ago. Banana Pancakes and Dreamscapes is a collection of witty commentary and beautiful photographs that define my ideal living space. I fell in love with the rooms and items that were featured on this delightful blog. Good thing too, because the author of this blog just so happens to be my roommate!

Take a look for yourself...paradise

Elle UK

I know it seems as though this blog is slowly turning into a shrine to the olsens lol... but it's not lol. This blog was just designed to pay homage to inspirational individuals be it; interior designers, fashion designers or fashionistas. It heavily concentrates on individuals who take risks with their look in a simplistic form. Without further adu, I present you Mary Kate Olsen in Elle UK magazine.

September 2008

This may be a bit irrelevant to this specific post, but have I already mentioned mentioned how much I cannot wait for fall/winter. I have already started gathering images that, for me, describe the perfect fall looks. I cannot wait to post them all...I will probably do it within the next few days or weeks or months... whichever :)

Salute Your Shorts

The other day, I saw this picture of Victoria Beckham and loved her outfit from the edgy bob to the baggy jeans to the feminine top. She looked so comfortable... so this picture became an inspiration for me.

So with Victoria's outfit in mind, here is what I wore today to go furniture (and even a little clothes) shopping. I stole my little brother's camo shorts and wore them today with a simple tank and my gladiotors.
Oh, and I will let you in on a little inside joke... the big smile today is for my boyfriend. He thinks I should smile more in my pictures lol. There you go Zachary, a smile on my blog... just for you and so is the extra 'scowl' in my last photo.

(Ribbed Tank, Target. Belt, Vintage. Shorts, My brother's. Gladiators, Urbanoutfitters.)

Question: Does anyone remember the 'back in the day' Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts? Such a classic and a fitting title!

P.S. Thanks for all your lovely comments...I greatly appreciate them all :)
