Current Obsession: UO Home

For all of you who didn’t know, I recently moved in with one of my best friends in our very own apartment. Since moving in June, I’ve been so so sooo obsessed with decorating and really making this apartment more like a home. Before this apartment, I was crammed in a house with four other girls/students and it didn’t feel like home at all. I know that I’ll be moving again sometime in the future, but for now, I really want this apartment to look nice and to be a reflection of myself and my roommate. So far, I’m STILL working on my bedroom. It definitely looks more like MY room than it did at the beginning, but there’s still so much more I want to do! This is where my current obsession comes in: Urban Outfitters. The “home/apartment” section on their website is something I find myself browsing almost every single day. I love love love everything on that site. I tweet about it ALL the time. I love the style, I love the home-y vibes. Everything is so cute and so nice – and also sooo pricey. Pillows, rugs, blankets, frames, jewellery holders, lights, and snow globes- they have it all! Heck! I WANT IT ALL. I bit the bullet and ordered an area rug from them about two months ago, and I’m still in love with it. I’m dying for a cute floor pillow to go with it!

I  don’t really know how to describe the vibe I get from Urban Outfitters’ home stuff. A lot may say it’s hipster, but I just think HOME. To better explain the things I like about UO Home, I’ve added a few photos that are “apartment goals” for me.

(Mom, if you’re reading this, can I get plants and pillows for Christmas?)

That’s all for today’s post! Are any of you nuts about home décor? Anybody else obsessed with Urban Outfitters Home? I can’t wait to finish my room, maybe I’ll do a blog post on it once it’s done!! Or a “Room Tour” video!! I’m super excited.

Hope you’re all having a good week so far!

Until next time,

Love or Hate: Oversized Denim Jacket

Let’s admit it, I mean, I admit it. I always have my eyes on something. I don’t know about you but I’m always looking to achieve different looks. I love clothes. I love style. I love fashion. It’s a way I choose to express myself and I feel like it makes me, me.

Although my bank account does not agree with my choice of expression, here is what I have been eyeing lately: an oversized denim jacket. Browsing through Tumblr on my phone (a daily routine), I came across a number of photos. Please see below.

These looks are so cute, and so Spring, and so Summer! I googled ‘oversized denim jacket’ and the outfits that women can pull off with a simple denim jacket are endless! I loved how they paired it with heels and a dress, with skirts, with black skinnies, flow-y shorts and a crop tee, and even an all-white ensemble!

Ya! So then I started online shopping. I found this sick app on my phone called ‘depop’ and it’s THE BEST. It’s basically Kijiji for every fashion junkie around the world but there’s more pictures, and it kinda looks like Instagram. Honestly though, check. it. out. Some of my favourite bloggers sell their stuff on there! I found a vintage Levi jacket for $35 and I can’t decide between it or a men’s denim jacket that we have at Topman. With my employee discount it will come to the same price. My concern is the fit! The Levi is a medium. The men’s jacket is an extra small. I love the vintage/authentic idea of the Levi but I’m afraid of it being too big. Should I just go for the men’s jacket at Topman, and just try to break it in myself ha-ha?

That’s my “dilemma”. On another note, how do you guys feel about the oversized denim jacket? Love or hate? Do you prefer the more fitted and cropped version? How would you style it?

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! Until next time!
