With an extra off day from work today, I thought I'd get some work done in my apartment. I can't believe I've been in my place almost a year and am still without a kitchen table. Not to mention I'm still using a coffee table as a faux entertainment center. So I trekked to Ikea and did quite a few laps while listening to the new Florence and the Machine album. While I didn't pull the trigger on a kitchen table {I'll continue to make due with my ottoman} I did find great little entertainment center and some new bedroom decor. Now I just need to figure out where to get some tools or who I can bribe for putting it together. I think I'll go with the bribe route.

Ps, thanks for your feedback on the NYE dress choices! I ended up going with Dress #2 from Urban :)

Pin It!


  1. LOL. We also used a coffee table as an entertainment center. Hey, it works. Super cute sweater.

  2. ah well! seems like a fairly successful trip! love your casual chic jumper! and loving your hair colour here :D

  3. This may be my favorite casual outfit of yours.  I'm sure that means a great deal to you. :)

  4. The sweater's colours look great with your complexion and hair colour. And great choice with the NYE dress.

  5. I love that sweater, its so bright and happy!

  6. Love the sweater and the outfit in general looks perfect for tackling IKEA.

  7. Love your sweater. And trips to IKEA :)

    Ikea is so much fun. Glad you found some good stuff!


  9. There is a low priced hand drill you can get at a local hardware store it is by black and decker and its only like $20. My entire (2600 sq ft house) is outfitted with ikea furniture and this little gadget was a Godsend... I would have no fingers with out it... and its saves a ton of time.. Just a heads up in case you can't find someone to bribe.. hehe..
