New nook, boring look...

Yes, you are correct. I have not been posting OOTD pics recently, despite my excitement over my new blogging space. This has been for a few reasons:

1. My new space relies on a lot of natural light. If I use the ceiling light for pictures, I look like I spray tanned way too much and have orange hair. Not pretty.

2. There has been a lack of light in dallas this week due to massive amounts of rain. Massive. Amounts.

3. I don't feel particularly cute yet. In fact, I barely feel inspired to look cute. I know it will come back to me soon, but I just don't do well with change. Like, not at all. I even managed to mutter to husband that I miss the apartment. (The stinky, gross apartment! I miss it! How crazy am I?!)

However, I really wanted to take a shot at it and test out my lighting options, even if my outfit was totally uninspired. So, to debut my new nook, here is a boring look (teehee). (Please disregard the really frizzed out hair. It can't handle this humidity and the rain. It puts up one hell of a fight.)

Top & shorts: old F21
Shoes: Bandolino zebra flats

I think that may be the smallest list of outfit deets to date on Fetching Fashions. See? Uninspired. I'm also in a closet rut for some reason... you know that feeling when you have a closet full of clothes but feel like you have nothing that you want to wear or that you think would make you feel better? That's just where I am. Grrr.... I will get over this rut. I will!

On another note, ya'll will see the transformation of this nook over time... I plan on getting some fun wall decals and maybe some throw pillows. I'm going to play around with it but will try and make it fun and unique. Yippee!

Have a fun Fourth o' July, and enjoy your sun if you have it!


  1. Aw, I think you still look pretty darn cute Justine, even when just being simple :) And I like your new nook already! It's got a cool minimalist palette vibe going on. Like your outfit, simple can still look good there too!

  2. agree with anjali... sometimes 'less is more' (pff ha), but seriously... it's a cute/cas summer outfit... Love the new little space and your throws ;)

  3. Simple is still cute :) I really love the new background. That chair is great!

  4. :(
    You can do it, you can do it! Get outta that rut!

    I'm sorry you're kinda down, but muttering that you miss the old apt?! Noooooo... LOL


    Well, you look cute anyways! :P

    I totally get what you mean! I've recently gone through a blog "null" since I've been so busy with life with changes in my schedule, etc... Sometimes you just need to get away! It will all come back to you- but take the time you need! I do LOVE that chair in the picture. I just re-painted my office and that chair would look perfect in there :) Have a good 4th!

  8. Girl, you look so cute as usual, if not a bit tuckered out. I'm sure the move has been kinda taxing, but no worries! Your nook will be adorable as you transform it, I can see it now! And I think the chair is cute, btw! :)

  9. well you still look adorable!! change always does this to us, give it time :)


  10. I love your new little nook!! I can't wait to see how you transform this little space. I have a similar nook in my bedroom where I hide my computer desk and knickknacks. I never even thought to use it for blog photos! Hmm...
