day fifty-two

i spring cleaned today. even though it's only february, it was above zero and it felt like spring, so off i went to the basement. the basement i cleaned up and made over only a few short months ago, but you would never know it. there were piles of stuff everywhere. haphazard stacks of towels threatening to fall at any moment. hills of empty beer cans. a bucket of compost, luckily with a lid on at least. even a couch  hidden under piles of blankets and cardboard boxes and scarves. dirty laundry to be done and dust in every crevice. not a pretty sight.

but now...a beautfully organized area. things packed neatly away in boxes and arranged on shelves. dust swept outside to melt away with the snow. floor space that is actually visible.

and best of all? a clear head and (hopefully) no cleaning to do come actual springtime.


today's look before it got completely dirty and covered with dust:

black dress under dress: old navy, about two years old ($30)
blue turtleneck: old navy, about two years old ($15)

grey camouflage tie around waist: donated by my sister for this project - thanks! (free)
grey wrist warmers: handknit by me (about $2)
grey tights: (about $15)
black platform shoes: aldo from two years ago ($125)

grand total:
about $187.08
