Ok, so hear me out on this one - I love wearing dresses and skirts. HOWEVER, I have discovered that unfortunately tights literally cut off my circulation on my left 2nd toe. (I almost went to a podiatrist for this issue until I figured out the cause.) The origin where it cuts off seems to be in my thigh somewhere, but that's beside the point.
The answer was simple - last year I had a pair of jeggings (hush!) that I wore with everything as if they were tights. I found more than the 2 pairs I bought yesterday, but these are the ones that fit. Therefore, I typically wear jeggings as tights with the right dresses/skirts.
Retro clock behind me is one we rescued! It had been sitting in the basement for God knows how long and we bought a new clock mechanism from Michael's. We're still working on grinding down the original hands that came on it because clock hands are not standardized but it's the best clock I've seen in a very long time. Super-excited it's functional!
Urban Eyecare but I've been wearing them for a week now and I love them. I'll talk more about them in a future blog post.
I have lived in the same place for over 3 years now with little to no furniture moving, ever. I moved in and basically didn't really think about switching stuff. Recently, me and Max were getting little annoyed and lighting issues (despite having 3 lamps in the livingroom!) so we planned a solution.
Here are some BEFORE photos:
Ok, big reveal time! This is AFTER:
And the new living room! We were not able to line the couch up with the curtains like we wanted to due to needed access to get upstairs to the sewing room and guest room. It doesn't really bother me though.
I also love that I can control how bright it is in here now, especially if I'm working on something like knitting. There has been a dimmer switch on the ceiling fan light here forever as far as I know.
This photo isn't much, but it's how we made this side of the room much less haphazard. We're not in love with the entertainment center being black instead of brown but this piece was left here. We might put it in the basement eventually. However, I love having the light in the front on the bar there to easily switch on without tripping over a bunch of stuff!
