Where the Heart is

stripes

This weekend has been nothing but exciting!  Kevin and I found a home that we could both really see ourselves growing into.  Although we live in a wonderful area of Los Angeles that has the perfect amount of city life, ultimately we are looking to move back to the suburbs.  If I haven't mentioned it already, we are ready to start a family and we want to make sure our one day baby grows up in a home.  Especially one with a white picket fence, a vintage street lamp, and a porch swing.  And this house has it all!

Shoes- Target
Belt- c/o Deb Shops
Necklace- Gift
Wallet- Urban Outfitters
Bracelet- Forever 21

I'm trying not to get too excited until everything is final but it's just so hard.  We have already mentally planned what we want to change, how to change it, and what we would start on first.  I don't know about you but I'm pretty obsessed with HGTV shows.  My personal favorite is Property Brothers.  I love how they redesign older homes and make them look even better than new.  I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought of trying to get them to come to LA...  I can always dream!

  9. Hell yes! HGTV is the bomb. Property Brothers are amazing, and so cute. I like Income Property too. Scott is so talented, and also so cute, haha. He does incredible things with small spaces. I used to love Sarah Richardson's shows, but I haven't seen them on in a while. Then again, I haven't had time to watch tv in a while. :(

    I am so excited for you, and I hope all your home dreams come true. :)

  11. Ok, that dress looks amazing on you - it fits you perfectly, and I love how striking it is against your hair. I'm so happy that you guys are getting close to getting your house. I'm definitely jealous since I'm still years and years away from being in that same position. Keep us updated!

  16. This just reminds me to go back to the mall and buy that black and white maxi dress I couldn't decide on. This girl needs more stripes in her life.

  21. Congratulations on finding a house! It has a white picket fence, a vintage street lamp, and a porch swing?! Sounds perfect :) And sounds so fun to change it up too. I use to watch HGTV all the time when I still had cable. It was so cool to see the "before" and "after" pictures of houses.

    That stripe dress is so cute, I really like the fun shape and your hair bow is adorable :) I actually have this really big hair bow and i'm not sure how to wear it. Do you have any tips or ideas? :D

  36. A fence and a vintage street lamp?! Ahh those are my must haves! I used to watch a bunch of HGTV shows. It must be so exciting to move towards actually doing it yourself!

  37. I love the balance of the thick and thin stripes on this dress! You find the perfect way to belt a dress-- ALWAYS.

    Good luck with the house hunt too! Sounds like a ton of fun, epsecially when you compare it to HGTV. haha I can't tell you how many hours have been wasted watching marathons of house flips and renovations on that network. :P

  39. Hooray for finding a house! That is so exciting! Good luck with the renovations and changes.

    Your pink hair looks absolutely perfect with this striped dress! I'm so jealous of your hair color for real. The red belt and bow in your hair are great accessories with this dress too!

  40. Hurrah for finding a house!
    It is such an exciting time is it not?
    We are in the exact same position at the moment, and hopefully (when all of the paperwork etc goes through)be hot on your heels with new house decoration excitement... will you feature some decorating on here? I do hope so!

    In other news, I adore your hair colour and the stripey dress is divine.
