Style: Indecision

I don’t know if the weather is similar in your neck of the woods, but around here no one knows if it’s spring or fall. I dressed for both. Bright summery colors paired with subdued fall tones is really fun. And different. I like different.

These photos are so grainy, and the white balance is completely off. I took these photos at 7:30 at 4000ISO. But still, my old camera would never get pictures this nice at such a poor time of day.

It was a serious scorcher on Sunday, but it didn’t start out that way. I considered wearing a sweater out, but opted for a lightweight vintage scarf. Good choice, Mel.

I threw on the most colorful clothes I have to mask my lack of motivation to look stylish today. Too bad you can’t see the killer shoes I wore while running errands. And I changed up my background. This is much cleaner. Me likey. I still am nervous about getting the whitbalance consistent in all of my posts, but I guess it will push me to get better at my photography.

Penelope & Felix Shared Nursery

39 Comments

PHOTODUMP!! I took about 70 pictures yesterday with Penelope at my side. I just recently gave her our 6 year old coolpix point & shoot to use at her disposal & she loves it. She looked so grown up, snapping away at her room. I had to snap this little portrait of her. I thought the lighting was perfect on her.

So, would you like a tour of Penelope & Felix’s shared space? I’ll do my best to cite all of the sources for everything, but if you find I’ve missed something, please feel free to ask in the comments.

Here’s Penelope reviewing her shot of Felix’s crib. So cute.

Here’s what her bedroom looked like before Felix moved in with her. GROSS & unfinished. We were playing around with different bedding options for Penelope before we decided a toddler bed was best.

 So, there you have it: Felix & Penelope’s room is COMPLETE and for just under $400 total. This total includes everything we’ve ever spent on this room. NOT BAD, eh? Penelope does a fantastic job of making big messes in here, but now that it’s all decorated it’s somehow easier to clean. Do you find that way about finished rooms?

I love that there’s a lot of sentimental furniture, decorations & toys in this room. It certainly adds a lot to the personality & feeling of love that I want in my home. What do you think? How do you decorate with love?

For comparison, this is what Penelope’s bedroom looked like at our old place.
