Such A Girl

The boy utters those words countless times throughout the day. This mostly occurs after I’ve spent 5 minutes doing something he thinks is pointless or ridiculous (such as perousing pinterest).

Fall is here. Actually, this just means that winter is here because we’re not fooling anyone into thinking we actually have more than two seasons in Calgary. Although I haven’t looked at my cold weather wardrobe in months, I’m pretty sure I hate it all. I know last season it was perfectly fine. I even bought a few things I know that I love. But whenever I open my closet I see nothing but ugly (with a few pieces I’ve recently added thrown in).

My biggest issue is that I hate wearing pants when it rains. Who likes wet pants? I sure don’t. So I usually go with boots and skirts and dresses. Most of my dresses are too summery and most of my skirts go with silk tanktops though. My work-appropriate, long sleeve winter wear doesn’t exactly get me excited. (Too-big turtle necks, plain sweaters, boring boring boring!)

I have a long list of things I want:

  • a red cardigan
  • a big wool cardigan
  • more skinny dress pants (black, green, mustard!)
  • Long sleeve blouses
  • High socks for riding boots
  • Yellow chevron skirt
  • Ankle boots
  • Patterned blazer
  • Peplum
  • Fitted dress shirts (that actually fit)
  • Oversized mens-style watch
  • Geometric printed sweater
  • Denim shirt
  • Dresses (that can transition from fall to winter to spring)
  • Knee-length pleated skirt
  • Maxi skirt
  • Tweed skirt

I could probably go on forever. Not only do I love lists, but I also love clothing. This post is a win-win for me.

So I just got a new mac. I’m typing on it as we speak. There are many reasons why I’m stoked about this (my old one was 5 years old & just wasn’t working any longer), but one is that it won’t take me 5 million hours to create a blog post. This means I may actually blog. Hurrah! Exciting, right?

As you can see, I’m totally playing it cool. Just hanging out in my shades, on my bed, and my macbook isn’t burning my legs. This is big, guys. My old mac was always burning my legs.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a bit of a nerd. I’ve got a French keyboard, I wear sunglasses indoors (by myself, in my bed, when it’s dark), and I’m about to admit to everyone* that the most exciting part of my night was reorganizing all my bookmarks in Safari (*all 2 people who read this blog). But seriously, is there anything more exciting than all your stuff being organized? I really need to do this with my iPhoto…and the rest of my life.

I obviously need to update more often because that leads into the fact that Nathan and I finally found a place to live! After over 2 months of searching, we are moving to Crescent Heights on Aug 1. I am so excited.

I’m also slightly terrified of the 15 years worth of stuff I have to pack up from my parents house and move into a new place. Wish me luck. (Seriously, I’m going to need it!)
