Boxed In

When my lease was up at my last house I moved rather than commit to another year-long lease; part one of my eventual move to Northern Ireland. The process of moving meant all of my belongings were boxed up and are now slowly being un-boxed at my new temporary home. Since I'm such an expert packer and box labeler (sarcasm) I'm finding clothes normally regulated to the back of my closet and having a nearly impossible time finding clothes that are more my default pieces. I spent a few hours turning boxes upside down to find a pair of shoes only to eventually find them in a box marked Christmas. As I said, I did a good job labeling things. Still, it's good in a way when it inspires me to pull out this Carven skirt which probably hasn't been worn in two years and these fun flats. I got the flats in college while in Europe on adventures with one of my good friends and still hang on to them because of the fond memories, but I don't wear them often because they're such a pain to lace. It'll be interesting to see what other treasures I uncover as I get through all the boxes.

Outfit details:
Carven skirt (old)
Zara flats (old, similar)
Modcloth purse (old, similar)



  1. Those shoes are amazing, I can see how they would be a pain to lace though! I have a similar style pair with buckle straps and usually don't wear them for similar reasons of laziness haha. I LOVE the photo locations with little pops of red!

  2. Lovely! I love how muted the tones of the skirt are. it reminds me of that other skirt you have (the one that you said it was like wearing artwork). I can see that the flats could be pain. I have some clothes that aren't exactly practical but I adore them so in my closet they remain. I love how you take photos of your surroundings... it's almost like we have a "taste" of the area. Super cool! Have a lovely day!

  9. @Rania I pretty much always use my 50mm--can't remember the last time I used a different lens. Even when friends help me we use my camera and lens. :)

  11. Oh man, I feel your pain right now. I just moved as well and I was having a horrendous time finding my stuff when I needed it. I also do not label boxes properly, and there really is no rhyme or reason to what I put into a box. Hopefully next time if and when I do move, I'll have learnt my lesson.
