What I Wore: 100 Degrees

Today we had a designer meeting in our showroom so the morning was filled with yummy muffins, coffee, and chit chatting... Unfortunately the afternoon dragged on as people slowed down because of the heat. Driving home was the worse. I have no air in my car (it's broken) and with the windows down the only air I was getting was being pelt in the face my hot air. yuck...

So considering the disgusting heat we've been having I haven't taken pictures of my clothes this week... and I've actually been dressing very nice!! Thankfully I put in a window air conditioner in my room last night so I thought I'd give you a tour of the only cool room in my house (yeah I have no air in the house either).

When Kevin moved out the first thing I did was redo my bedroom. He took the mattress and bedframe and whatnot, so I decorated it to my little hearts desire! I painted the walls pretty mint green and rearranged everything! I still had lots of plans on what to do with stuff but I don't think I'll be doing much more to the room. I absolutely love my big four post bed and having no dresser helps open up the space and let the light from my wall of windows in. And I got a Queen bed... oh me and Tripp just have tons of room to snuggle at night.

Also I did an over haul on my closet... I thought I didn't have many clothes but boy, I think I have a ton (I'm sure some of you girls can put me to shame!) I love that I can hang everything and have a built in for my tees, jeans, and unmentionables. And I've found clever ways to store things like my shoes and dirty laundry (keeping them from the pesky puppy!) using wall storage and under the bed storage (this bed is super high up and allows so much under it!!)

So for todays scorcher I wore some new sandals and a silk dress, boy it helped so much. It's been really hot here. The fabric was so light and airy it felt like nothing yet still was great for the meeting I hosted this morning... oh but my hair was down and all pretty... I had to put it up on the ride home.

I'm in love with your beautiful and newly decorated room. It's just soo pretty!!! Glad you were able to make it more you and that you air in at least one room! I do not miss the horrible humidty of Michigan (even though I only experienced one). Love your colourful and light-weight outfit and those beautiful (and yellow!) sandals. Looking lovely as always dear :)

you look so very pretty ad i love your comforter, the colors are so cheery. I cant belive you ride about town with no air, thats a bummer and a half. PS you may or may not be getting sent a package this weekend...:)

Oh man, the weather here has been so disgusting as well. Even on the days where I pretty myself up I just can't force myself out of the air conditioning to try and take pictures!
Anyway, your room is so beautiful! I really would love to redecorate/declutter my room. Also, your dress is adorable :)

I love the new bedroom, it's inspired. The bedspread is really eyecatching and compliments the mint walls well. With that dress in this setting you look like the heroine of a 1930s novel.

love the lighting in your room! what a beautiful bed and house. also, my car's air conditioning is broken also. note- add that to the list of BF requirements.

What a beautiful new room. I love how spacious the light makes it look. And the "keep calm & carry on" is so true, true, true.

I love how you decorated your room. It looks so light and airy.

Raquel | June 12, 2011 at 1:56 PM

love your room♥ I'm sure it's really cozy to stay in there. and nice dress, also the sandals looks comfy to wear ;)

Your room is gorgeous! I'm so jealous. I can't wait to live in a house where I'm allowed to paint the walls and do with the room what I want (renting is no fun).
I really love your dress, too.

YES! You did the bedroom post! Dude, you need to paint your walls that color in every room you have, it looks pretty with the yellow sheets!
