dog days of summer

 Summer is almost over and Im so sad! I really do not feel like going back to school next week! The weather has been so nice, so I've really been trying to make the most of it, that means lots of beaches, lakes, ice cream and just being outside as much as possible! That kinda meant putting my closet transformation on hold for a little bit. Doesnt take much to put that on hold, but last night I finally got around to it. I got a new extra wardrobe thing for hanging and storing more stuff. The beginning stages are going okay, I've decided it would make sense to categorize my items (a shockingly creative concept I know), so thats whats on the agenda for tonight! Fun, fun..
Anways I took a couple shots from my iphone over the past couple days, so I thought Id share some of the lovely days with you.

feather ring

So the past few days have been super nice, but I still had to set aside some time to clean my room. A task that I've been putting off... pretty much all summer. I have this issue where I have way too many clothes and literally not enough space, Im sure I am not alone in this issue. I'll admit I could be on the verge of being a hoarder, I hate to ever throw anything away because 'what if one day I want this?' but stuff had to go. I managed to get rid of a bit, but the overcrowding issue still remains. Im trying to come up with better storage techniques and possibly a new wardrobe thing to hang clothes in since my closet was meant for a toddler of something. I also have an issue with wayy too many old magazines, I recently tossed a bunch, but some I just hate to get rid of, so currently a bunch are stuffed on a bookshelf.. but Im slowly losing space. We'll see how it goes in the next couple of weeks, Id really like to get things organized before I go back to school.

So my question to you readers who read all this is a) How do you keep your room/closet organized and b) what do you do with your old magazines? Toss them right away, shelf them? Any tips or pictures would be great!

I also bought another new ring, I love feathers and it was only $6 so this was an easy purchase! I got it at Aldo!

Aug 9th

Hay everyone, Im home now, I've been home for a little while but I've been busy enjoying our summer weather by going to the lake and the beach! Have to do all these things before school starts back in, why does September always seem to come so fast once August hits!? Even though Im still trying to make the most out of summer its impossible to not start browsing through, and probably buying some new fall stuff. I know I say this probably every year, but I've decided fall clothing is probably my favorite even though I love warm sunny weather, I also love a cold, sunny, crisp leaves fall-y kinda day. Fall just has so many options and possibilities. But then again I might possibly change my mind next spring going into summer. What is your fave season?

While your pondering that, I want to show you the new converse if you haven't already seen it. They might not even be new actually, but I had never seen them before. Converse are pretty much the only sneaker I ever wear, mostly because they look good with every type of pants, a good staple shoe. The new ones are slightly thinner than the originals but not as thin as the 'light' ones, plus I think they have a better shape than the light ones. Cant wait to get a pair.
