APARTMENT COVETING


via pinterest.

For all of you who've already taken a look at my pinterest it isn't a surprise that I love, besides street style and sentimental musings, interior design. Winter is almost over (I'm ignoring the snow outside like a pro) which means that we can start to bring spring and summer again into our homes. 

During all of my study breaks you can find me pinning some good inspiration and possible DIYs to keep in mind for making my apartment summer ready. All pretty exciting if you ask me. Can't wait for my exams to be over. Until then it will stay all in the head, and pinterest of course. Sigh.

STYLE RESOLUTIONS TWO ZERO ONE THREE

via.

Let me first of all wish you all a belated Happy New Year. I hope you started the year in style with lots of champagne and kisses. I already skipped January first by sleeping all day, and on day two of the new year, I'm still recovering from a smashing NYE party.

I'm pretty sure one of the most important things to help you grow as a person is setting yourself challenges, providing yourself with a never ending stream of self improvement and never letting your life become stagnant. But it's hard when you're in a sleep-study-eat-sleep routing to feel like making time for these projects. 

So, for this year I decided to just keep doing what I am doing and not set personal resolutions that I'll probably forget after only a month.*

But, it's true, a new year would not be complete without any ambitious resolutions, so for 2013 I made up some fashion related ones:

SIMPLIFY MY CLOSET
Starting with donating everything that has not been worn within the last year, so I can make room for great pieces.

WEAR LESS BLACK, EMBRACE MORE COLOR

ACTUALLY WEAR MY GOOD CLOTHES
I have a closet packed full of loveliness but only wear a fraction of the sum total. I'm guilty of always reaching for the same tried-and-tested look when I'm dashing trough the door. So I'll stop being lazy and try to be a little more risky with new combinations. 

DEVELOP MY OWN FASHION FORMULA

INVEST IN MORE TRANSITION PIECES
Living in a country where it's 80% of the time autumn, I'm in need of pieces I can layer.
