red hearts

040 038 050
I'm pretty sure if I had to choose three things in my closet to wear for the rest of my life I would take this belt, these shorts, and these shoes. I probably wear this belt three times a week (or more) and pretty much with anything; dresses, skirts, high waisted jeans, shorts, and over sweaters. Also, are you sick of these shorts yet? I know I just wore them, but I can't stop wearing them. Truly.

In other news, my best friend and roommate of two going on three years, Jenny, officially can move into our apartment! This is probably the most exciting thing to happen in college yet. The whole process was such a disaster that to get a place that is not only affordable but also clean (you wouldn't think that would be such a high standard) tickles me pink. It has two bedrooms with two attached bathrooms so we'll each have our own, walk in closets, a washer and dryer (hip hip hooray!), full kitchen, and it's all nearly brand new. All of those things are nice but probably my favorite part about it is that it's across the street from Target. I already applied for a job there which I'm hoping will relieve some of the many Target runs (literally) we'll make and contribute to rent money, but I'm pretty darn excited to have an apartment after living on campus for the past two years. The other day at work on my break, I scoured the internet for furniture and decorating ideas and found DIY's on pinterest to substitute for the chairs that cost hundreds of dollars and ridiculously expensive headboards, coat racks, pillows, and other things that would cost me two months of paychecks. My big splurge at the end of the summer will be on a Queen mattress and a plane ticket to Nashville to visit my friend, so I anticipate decorating, if at all, will have to be a bit of a crafty project. Nonetheless, I'm stoked.

I absolutely love those adorable shorts! And the little scalloped edges. And the shoes are so cute too. Basically this outfit is perfect. And that's so exciting that you guys get to have your own apartment! Yay! It sounds like you lucked out with a really great place. And I hope you get that job at Target! The majority of my money goes there, too. Please post some photos of your gorgeously decorated place when the time comes. :)

You would be surprised at how much DIY stuff you can do for your apartment! Half of my room was made by me or something I found for cheap (or free!!). I made my headboard, and every time people come into my room it's the first thing they comment on. So do it! :) I love your shorts! You look lovely, as usual.

I LOVE this Maggie! Every time you wear that belt I get sad that I didn't get it at Gap when I had the chance (and that chance was to get it at 50% off, grrrrrr). Love all the hearts and the red--it's just so perfect for Valentine's Day! I'm so excited for you and your new place! I wanna see pics when it's all decorated (or maybe one day I can visit!)! :D

I wear my Gap bow belts all the time, too! Belts truly have transformative power for any outfit in my book. I am totally not sick of those shorts, they are adorable and too cute on you. All of the upcoming plans you have sound so exciting! Especially the Nashville part, considering I'm a Tennessee native myself ;).
