70s chick/ikea trip

It was hard not to channel some sort of 70s TV maven in this outfit, with the wide leg trouser jeans, looser fitting top and some serious clogs. About these jeans though, I think I found my new favorite cut to start replacing my collection of skinnies. There's something to be said about a wide leg cut with a pair of heels -- instantly taller/slimmer not to mention it's a nice change of pace and gives me some time to wash the already worn too thin skinnies.

I'll have apartment pictures hopefully sometime this weekend. But first, I have to go to IKEA and pick up a bed. Somehow the air mattress I've been sleeping on the past few weeks doesn't do my apartment justice.

And while we're on the subject of IKEA, is it all too corny and disgustingly cute to admit that I kind of want to play the IKEA game? Because I do. Any takers?
