Completely Gratuitous

I’ve been reading …love Maegan lately. She titles all of her outfit diary entries as “Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post.” My outfit post today is a bit gratuitous as well. It’s a boring work-from-home-then-go-swimming outfit (and I’m not even wearing any makeup), but I’m using it as an excuse to show off my sunroom and my friend Erin’s fancy pants.

Scarf, gift. Tee, Forever 21. Cardigan, I Heart Ronson. Loafers, American Eagle for Payless.

The sunroom was once painted peach and the floor was covered in gray, all-weather carpeting over stick-on linoleum tiles. I took that stinky carpet out right after moving in, but tolerated the peach walls and red/green linoleum until I had time to paint and money to tile.


I loved all the plants, but maintaining a tropical jungle in an unheated room isn't sustainable in Ohio.

If you’ll tolerate a little more bragging, I’d like to show you my friend Erin’s snazzy style. She calls these her fancy pants:


You know I’m totally jealous.

The sunroom looks so fantastically welcoming now that it's bright and white!

Your sunroom looks great. I especially love the bird cage you have in the corner.

Those pants that your friend has on are awesome.

Those may very well be the fanciest pants I have ever seen. I had to comment on them because I cannot look away :)

Wow I wish I could look that good without makeup! Cute outfit!!

Your sunroom is gorgeous! I love all the birdcages in the background- very nice decor.

Love the clean white, I have the same ceiling in my sunroom, but not the same lovely room yet. You give me some inspiration...

I'll tolerate pretty much anything from you! I love your blog!

This really has nothing to do with your current attire, but I wanted to tell you I wore the brightest tights I've ever worn today. They're purple with a hint of pink and have a paisley pattern to them - in the same color. I give all credit to you for giving me the idea of wearing them. If it wasn't for your blog I wouldn't be quite so adventurous in my wardrobe.

Love your outfit and reallly love your sunroom. My old house had a sunroom and I painted it all white. I was never really sure what to do for decor (I did b&w photos and accessories)...wish I would've seen your birdhouses back then. They look awesome!

No comment on the fancy pants. ;)

The sunroom is beautiful, and I really like the outfit. The jeans look great on your, comfy but still very stylish =)

Melissa said...

Love the room and your awesome style! I'm continually impressed with your creativity.

The room looks amazing.

And those pants! The pants are too amazing! I must make a pair!

I like it! Even winter will be brighter for you this year. I'm sure the plants thank you! (I'm still absorbing the fancy pants - imagining how it would be to walk in them, how she did it, etc. So many questions; so little time.)
