Dorm Tour: My Old Dorm!


Silly me... I don't think I ever got around to posting photos of one of my old dorms!  So there's no better time than the present, right?  This here is a single dorm I lived in back in 2010.  As far as my love of turquoise and floral patterns go... not much has changed.  But I've definitely come a long way and my style has much evolved.


Even though the room was very narrow, I loved the huge window that took up one entire wall.  Up on the 7th floor, I had a wide open view of beautiful skies.


Another plus to the narrow room: it came with a closet.  And I'd definitely take a real closet over one of the awful wardrobe armoires the larger rooms came with.  


Ahhh dorm life.  I can't believe how little I got by with that semester.  No typewriter.  No extra desks.  No bed nook.  No private bathroom.  No living room.

I love the layout & the giant window. It must have been nice to have all of that natural light. My dorm is nice and all, but the view isn't great. haha

Wow your dorm looks so comfy. I'll be starting college soon and already been issued a hall and everything. I'll be in a double so I'll be having a roommate (first time with a roomie bit nervous)

Oh my with my comment I forgot, if you don't mind a question.
For someone living with a roommate can we still go all out and decorate our side of the room as we wish or is it better to go simple since you don't want the room to clash?

Hi! I am a second year student and last year I had two different roommates (switched rooms) and you would want to contact your roommate if possible and ask what their color scheme(sp?) is and see if there is anyway you can combine your colors and make it a wonderful room. If your rooms will be anything like mine was it will be boring old white walls and no extra room. So get in touch now.. no the dimensions of your room and start thinking of ideas, that way when you get to school you wont be overwhelmed with what to do.

This dorm room looks so nice and soooo cute! I was lucky enough to have a double as a single last year, but I'll have a roommate this year, and I have a feeling our room will not look like this!! I love the huge window!
This room looks great!
Any idea of the size?

Oh! I am having some serious window-envy right now! I adore large, open windows and natural light. The view isn't bad at all, either! I wish I had a lovely view like this one in my tiny off-campus 2-bedroom apartment, but from every window the grand view my flatmate and I get is of...the parking lot. :p Your old dorm looks cosy, though!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
