I love this time of year when it is STEAMING hot and all of the adorable spring & summer stuff goes on sale. I live for that! I also love this time of year because the August magazines are hitting my mail box! In my opinion, the Aug/Sept magazines are always the best. Is it because everyone has that Back to School mentality? Is it because the two best seasons Summer & Fall are colliding? Maybe it is a little of both. Currently, I am cleaning out my closet to make room for fall, and for the stuff I already have (closets are SMALL in NYC after all) . I am planning on donating the clothing that I don’t want or never wear, but it is going to take me forever to sort through everything!!! I keep telling myself it is worth the work because it will make room for MORE cute things.

There were so many adorable things that would look great in my closet, so I know that my initial goal was ill-fated because when I see space in my closet,I have an urge within to fill it. I think it is genetic. In fact, I have every intention of filling it with SOME of these cool finds from Urban Outfitters:

Sam Edelman Buckle Ballet $98 @ urban outfitters–these are OFFICIALLY my new favorite pair of shoes!!! 🙂

Owls make me happy for 2 reasons: 1) my grandmother LOVES owls, so they remind me of her. 2) I have a bit of a Harry Potter fascination, and I’m really excited about the new book (and movie)…owls are wise, but for me, they never get old.
