{recap} Wardrobe Update - May

  Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
I apologize for the lack of post this past week, but I can finally share why I have been trying extra hard not to buy any clothes, or anything unessential. I bought a house with my boyfriend! We've been keeping it very close to the belt because we didn't want to say something and then have it fall through. Our offer was accepted waaay back in March, but we didn't close until May 22nd, so it's been torture not telling anyone except for super close friends and family! Now I get to decorate my own home and build the closet of my dreams - after we tackle the rest of the house, of course! (It's a 3 bedroom and we're turning a small room into my closet.)  The house is only 10 minutes from my parents, which is nice because I'm a weirdo and like spending time with my family. ;)

I did make 2 clothing purchases this month but they were on vacation and I used a gift card, so it doesn't really count. ;)

  1. Your Mickey tees are so fun! Congrats on the house too, that's such exciting news! I can't wait to see your wardrobe room! I miss mine, it's a nursery now, but I'm confident that I'll get a walk in wardrobe again soon, haha. We've been house hunting for years and I've stopped sharing it on the blog too as so many things fall through, we've looked at land, signed contracts on houses, and it always seems to fall through, so I understand you wanting to wait and make sure it was permanent!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far :)
