loft lovin'

Black Skinny Pants from Parasuco  Lace Shirt & Pumps from Winners   Earrings from Joe Fresh

If you check my TV history, you'd see there is one channel I tend to gravitate to daily. Home and Garden Television. Oh boy, nothing makes me more excited than real estate. Whether they are building it, tearing it down, buying, selling, renting, you name it - I'm slightly unhealthily obsessed.

But there is one aspect of real estate that makes my heart tingle and that's lofts. I have been dreaming of living in a loft for as long as I can remember. The open space, the incredible amount of lighting, the character, oh and can't forget the decorating opportunities.

Sadly, around my University, there is nothing even remotely close to a loft. While suburban living is just dandy, and I know eventually we'll return here to raise a familly, it's nothing compared to city living. Less than a year to go until I graduate, we pack our bags as quickly as humanely possible and get our bums downtown.

The countdown begins.

love that top so pretty and girly :) and I am also a lover of lofts specially downtown! a friend of ours had one which I loved going to...sigh. cannot wait until I can live downtown!

Katya said...

Me too! And I want an exposed brick wall. Richie thinks its hysterical when I watch HGTV. I get excited like its Christmas all over again. And this outfit is absolutely amazing. I love the flowiness of the white top, yes, that word exists in my dictionary.

Katya said...

Ahh yes! Lofts are fabulous. I am always watching HGTV and other various home design shows. You don't have long to go!! :)

oh me neither - patience has never been my strongest trait ;)

Katya said...

Exposed brick? YES please! I actually saw one episode where they re-made on old gymnasium of a private girls school into lofts. One word - ahmazing ;)

Katya said...

Definitely, time goes by so quickly! Glad there are so many other HGTV lovers out there ;)

A few years ago, my husband and I moved into an urban loft with high ceilings and industrial touches. There was zero privacy, given the lack of walls, and it's really hard to decorate one huge room. On the plus side, we lived above a coffee shop and had the smell of coffee wafting up through our heating source which was pretty neat. And waking up to exposed duct work never got old :)

It's definitely something that I'm looking forward to as an experience and not for long term. The smell of fresh coffee and exposed anything would have won me right over ;)

Katya said...

Love the lace and your pretty lip color! So feminine and lovely :) Have a great week!!

Katya said...

Love how perfect yor hair is in these photos! well, actually, in all of your photos! If this were Twitter #jaleous would be more than in place! x

Katya said...

I am glued to HGTV too!! Even I wanted to live in a loft when I was single! Good luck!

Katya said...

Such a pretty top! I love how you punched it up with fun accessories-like that red clutch-so cute!

Katya said...

I really adore this outfit! It's very simple with an unstated and effortless elegance. I have to agree with commentators below - such a beautiful top! And yes, I totally can agree with you on the love for loft apartments. It would be amazing! Especially in the big city. Lovely outfit and thanks for sharing!

Your blouse is so pretty - love it!

Katya said...

I completely agree, downtown living is the best. Everything is so close and the buildings are so interesting, you can always find a space that has unique features. I am so against cookie cutter, very square spaces.

Katya said...

gorgeous blouse!!

Katya said...

such a beautiful top you are wearing. i love the lace detailing on the shoulders.

Katya said...

Love the make-up!

I'm with you on the real estate lusting except I'm more focused on a house. BBQs in the backyard, dinner party in the dining room, I want it!

Katya said...

You look gorgeous in these shots. The lip color is really perfect for you, and white peasant top is so dreamy. I've dreamed of a big open loft space since I was little too. Something with ridiculously tall windows and no storage space. I'm out of college and haven't moved to one yet but I still have hope :)

Katya said...

I would totally wear your outfit. I am obsessed with House Hunters on HGTV, so I totally understand where you're coming from.

Katya said...

You are the sweetest person ever, did you know that? Reading your blog comments always make my day... Thank you!!! And speaking of sweet, I LOVE YOUR TOP! So lovely and feminine... You look beautiful!! xx

Katya said...

Cutest thing ever. I love the blouse and your lip color!

Katya said...

You look gorgeous! I love those pants. And I'm so with you- adore lofts!

Katya said...

That blouse is absolutely beautiful! So feminine without being fussy.

I adore loft's too, we used to live in one but had to move because the buliding fell down in the earthquake almost this time last year :(

Katya said...

wow, you look so pretty and inspiring ^^

just lovely!

I always dreamed of living in a city too, but I got pregnant before I could really do that. It was a bit of a bummer... but hey, maybe my 40 year old self will take Jeff and I to a city and just lease a loft for our own enjoyment. We all give up a part of our life for kids, mine tends to be a younger self, but who cares? I'll be living in lofts when you're raising kids and we'll laugh about it, supposing we're still blogging, right? :D

The lace on your shirt is gorgeous. Looks so soft and glowing on you! Gorgeous as always!

Katya said...

Beautiful shirt! Love it!

Katya said...

This top is sooo pretty! Love the lace :)

AND gahhhh how often have I dreamed of living in a loft?! Someday, mark my words, someday I will! Living in the burbs can get you down...and make you feel old.haha as soon as the hubby gets done with college....downtown livin for us too! :)

I love the white lace shirt, it is ADORABLE! Seriously want to steal!

Oh, and there is no shame with watching HGTV. I am totally watching "Property Brothers" right now. The twin with the brown hair is the hotter one, don't you think? ;) I know you'll get your loft one day!
