Casual & Chloe

 Well, my friends the rain has finally let up and the sun is shining. I typically like the little spurts of rain we get here in Nor Cal, but after about two weeks of non-stop rain I am ready for some fun in the sun. However, it isn't exactly warm yet. This outfit is something that I love to wear on a daily basis. It is easy and comfortable.I have been wanting these boots for a long time, but was convinced by one of my favorite bloggers Dylana from Nana in Wonderland to buy them. She rocks them like a pro! I was playing around on Shopbop the other day and trying to decide if I was "girlie", "classic", "casual", "edgy" or "boho". This is extremely hard for me since I feel like dressing like all of them on different days and according to different moods. My boyfriend looked at it and said his favorite was "girlie" (typical) and that I dress most like "casual". I was surprised and said really I think most often I am "girlie with a touch of classic and boho mixed together" (don't think that is how it works). Turns out that I am a little bit of all of them, but I have to give me boyfriend some credit. When I looked at today's outfit I thought, "causal all the way baby"!

So, I am trying to prepare for a new chapter of my life. My boyfriend and I are planning to move in together. I moved back home with my parents for a while and have been trying to decide if I was going to get my own place or live with him. We decided a few months ago that we would love to live together. However, we are doing it right. We are waiting to find the right place and the right cost. So, I am on a spending freeze. Of course, I have all of these things that keep popping up. For example, New York in February would be amazing, a new camera is a must, and I just spent $400 on tires and an oil change (buzz kill). So, I may have to be creative with my outfit posts soon and have a few less of them until I am settled.

With moving on the brain I have been compiling a billion inspirational images on my desktop. So, many that it is like a fun game trying to find the image I am looking for. As, many of you know I have a girl crush on Chloe Sevigny (see example here) and would like to have many of things related to her and her amazingness. I want her closet, the clothes she wears, her shoes, her kitchen and the clothes she designs. Here are some images that I am inspired by for my new place and things to go in my new closet.
