I am still a mess. Antsy. And all over the place. Thinking of so many things all the time, but not being able to DO much until our actual moving date (I was very proactive and got A LOT done ahead of time LOL). What a weird place to be.
And it’s still SO HOT here. I’m looking for ways to wear the least amount of clothing possible.
As I was packing up my clothes for moving, I also tried things on, and played around with what I’ve decided to keep in my wardrobe. Dreaming of layering, jackets & cashmere, I rediscovered my love of built-in-bra camisoles, and how great they are for coverage, minimal support, and simple layering. I have four camisoles by Park Vogel/Vogel10 (anyone remember them?) that are made of organic cotton I’ve had for just about 10 years. Three of them are too big on me, and have some seaming that is starting to unravel by now, but one still fits beautifully, and is just a very basic black camisole.
I usually reserve them for wear during fall/winter under sweaters, but as I was packing I put one on with my linen blend James Perse pants and wore that all day. Turns out it’s great for hot weather too; I can wear it alone at home or outside, and throw a denim jacket on top in the air conditioning.
Since I only have one that fits me well I decided to try this other one by PACT and see if I liked it enough to stock up on more. So far so good. I don’t like the fit or the neckline as much as my Vogel10 cami, but it is very good, and the price is right ($19), so it will do fine.
Today I’m going furniture shopping, ugh, so I’m bringing my denim jacket to wear when I go inside.
Speaking of furniture, I wish I had the patience and the ability to hunt for second hand mid-century modern furniture right now, but I just don’t. And we need a kitchen table/chairs and some living room pieces ASAP, so I’m leaning towards some from Target’s new Project62 line. Have you seen it? The dining chairs are excellent, and very comfortable to sit in (at least they were in the store LOL).
I’ve also been looking through AllModern after Michelle posted about her new piece from there recently. The budget is pretty tight right now though, so I’m having to be very careful, and I’m really concerned about comfort, but I love the sofa she got.
We also need rugs, which is new for us since we left Atlanta; we’ve lived in apartments with wall-to-wall carpeting lately.
Anyway, just rambling 🙂 So much going through my head all the time!!
