a little sneak peak into my "new" closet
(more pictures coming soon)
i spent the weekend simplifying and organizing!
it's funny how much better you feel after doing so.

do i need it? no.
will i use it? most likely, never.
could i live without it? most definitely.

i cleaned drawers, binders, boxes, shelves, etc. this weekend.
i feel like a new woman today!!

i just didn't need any of this "stuff" anymore so i am moving on and moving up!

feels. so. good.
you should definitely do it!
if you don't have time to do an entire room....
(which who does these days?)

my suggestion:
take a part of a room first.
schedule time to do so.
play some good music.
keep moving.
set goals.
label (to keep, to toss, to giveaway)

you won't regret it....!

(too many pinterest photos under "dream closets" for inspiration)

lately i have been "simplifying" everything.
you name it, i'm doing it.

i just don't need all this "stuff" in my life.
next up.... closet makeover.

i am so so excited for my fashionista friend natalie to come over this weekend and revamp my closet!!
it's a big project i've had at the top of my to-do list for quite some time.

clearly, haven't gotten to it.

natalie works and lives fashion, so i know i am in good hands!
i think i am most excited to get rid of things i don't need or wear
and for her to tell me staples i should have in my closet
(as should every girl)

i'm pretty sure i have really great pieces and i'm pretty sure i have "TOSS AWAY NOW" pieces.

this could get interesting...

never been so excited to organize!
(okay, that's a lie, but pretty jazzed)

happy weekend to you all!

today is the last day i will be 25.
it's so crazy to me how quickly time goes by.

over the last year, i have made more mistakes, made more memories, and made more bigger life decisions than i have in the 25 years past.
i guess that's what getting older is all about.

i am thankful for all of those things, no matter the lesson learned.
to me, those things keep defining who i am, and who i want to be as an individual in this world.

this past year has been an amazing journey, which i am so very thankful for. and most of which, i owe that to all of you.

and if dreaming about my dad last night wasn't a sign of what's in store for me over the next year,
i don't know what is.

thank you all for everything... i know this birthday will be special...

i just can't wait to celebrate!!!

with summer winding down and fall fast approaching, i can't help but get excited for fall clothes, switching from iced coffee to hot, snuggling on the couch with soup and movies, and especially finding new fall inspirations like the ones below...
