Liking Lately


Gap at ShopStyle

I have not been buying much in the way of clothes the past two months because 1) I don't need anything and 2) we are buying a new house.  Major purchases tend to reign in my other needless spending.  But I did get this quilted bomber jacket from Gap this month during their friends and family promotion.  I had been wanting a more dressy sweatshirt type jacket and I think this fits the bill.  The quality seems nice, it is quite heavy and really soft.  It is very short though.  I would even call it cropped but I like it.  Overall I am happy with the purchase.

In the new house (which we move into in two days!) we have a fireplace.  It is brick all the way to the ceiling with no mantel, just a awful shelf that is way higher than a mantel.  I hope to get that shelf removed and create some sort of mantel.  In the meantime, we need to create a seating area in that room.  I would love an arrangement like this. 

Other things I'm liking this week...

Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter on the cover of Harper's Bazaar September Issue.

Reading The Skimm everyday.  A really funny way to get the news headlines.

As we pack for our move and discover things we forgot we even had I have become even more interested in the minimalist movement.  I began following this blog a month or two ago and really like it. 

We have watched a few episodes of Tiny House Nation.  It is fascinating to see people downsize to live in a house under 400 sq ft.  It puts what you really need into perspective.
