Small Girl, Big Ideas

Chilly Toes, Chilly Nose

Just being in my apartment is a shock - not only is there double the furniture, double the dogs, and double the people now, but it's like 15 degrees colder inside. Outside, it's about 40-50 degrees colder. Sunday was fairly stressful simply because my neighbor decided to complain to me about my dog barking while we moved things in and out of the building, which I get sucks, but seriously, it was only for about 36 minutes. She went on to tell me they run too loudly. It's an apartment that allows dogs heavier than mine. Apartment life sucks, you gotta deal. But that basically ruined like 6 hours of my day because I have no ability to forget things. I really miss my house these days.

Also - it's cold in Pennsylvania, which means coats, tights, and more warm things again.

  2. oh no, that stinks about the crabby neighbor. i'm the same way with not being able to forget things. you'd thinking they could cut you a break while you're in the processing of moving.

    and YES, pennsylvania is FREEZING. i took our pup out this morning (he digs, so needs some backyard supervision) and was shivering like a maniac! i'm sure the neighbors think we are crazy with our dog on a leash in our fenced backyard. woops!

  3. These are such pretty pictures! And I love the color scheme- especially the mustard coat with the berry tights. And your neighbor sounds so mean- I mean, how are you supposed to stop a pup from barking? Maybe she was having an off day and taking it out on you. And it really must be a huge change going from a house to an apartment, yikes. At least your family is all back together again :))

  6. Stuff like that really gets to me too, I don't like it when people complain about stuff like that. Maybe if it had happened constantly for weeks, but you guys were just moving stuff in! Some people!! Ugh!
    On a more positive note, I absolutely love this outfit! The navy and mustard/yellow look so perfect together!! That scarf is a really great piece too :)

  10. what is so stupid is that they don't just make apartments more sound proof! I've been in ones where you can hear people's music playing through the walls when it's not even that loud.. so horribly designed. Sorry to hear about your neighbor though, hope things start to look up over in your new place! Oh.. just got a brilliant idea, doggie slippers!? would their running not sound as loud then? haha maybe they'd slide all over though.. anyway, you look seriously adorable here! you're so great at layering & look so pretty in that mustard color! Love all the diff hues : )Hope you enjoy your weekend w/ hubs & the pups!

    1. I've actually lived under her for a year now. She said Teemo barks (he doesn't...I actually record the dogs every now and then when I leave them to ensure they do okay!) and just seemed like she was complaining. It still got to me because I do keep them quiet (they never bark, maybe one or two barks a day from Raynor) and I cannot help running! Seh really doesn't do it that often and our apartment is carpeted. It'd be a lot worse if we had kids or babies or larger dogs is all I keep thinking.

  11. I'm sorry girl, that sucks! If they allow pets the other tenants should be anticipating some noise and feel lucky if it is only for 36 minutes, dang complainers! On another note, I'm loving your colored tights and the mustard sweater :) So cute!

  12. Gah, apartment living has a lot of perks, but these kind of situations are so tough! And you may be cold but you still look adorable, love these three colors together and your coat is too cute!
    Happy Friday, hope you get some down time with some delicious cocktails this weekend! :)

  14. Aww, don't let it ruin your day. There are people like that, an old neighbour did that about my dog one time. It's not your fault! I really love the burgundy and teal colour with the mustard yellow, you look so pretty! Have a great weekend!

  15. Love the color mix from your dress, tights and shoes! So pretty!
    Your neighbor doesn't sound overly friendly....sorry to hear! =(

  17. Not fun with the neighbours complaining. I hated it when we lived in an apartment. I am so grateful that we have a house and I don't need to worry about that anymore. Nothing to do but to grit your teeth and ignore it.

    You still manage to get great photos no matter what : )

  20. I can't wait to wear my pink and burgundy tights! I love how you remixed everything "as usual". I'm almost sick of hearing myself say that! Anyhow, I'm still going to be in Ohio on the 28th. I will see how and if and when we can meet up! I want to go outside of Cleveland and see other places! -Jess L

  25. I hope your apartment life gets better. I lived in an apartment throughout college and my neighbors complained all the time.

    Very cute outfit =)

  27. I love love love this outfit - so much fun color, at a time when everyone else seems to give up and just dress in earth tones. Plus I need a nice, neon coat and I love this one. :]

  30. You look great! I love your dress. I wish I owned something -anything- from dear creatures.
    Whenever people get rude or confrontational at me, I worry over it for hours too. Just imagining what I should have said. It's really probably not healthy haha.

  31. I love this dress, especially with the maroon tights!

    Hope that things get better with the apartment soon; I know what you mean having your own place, compared to living where you can disturb others without meaning to- Main reason why I want to get out of my dorm.

  32. Well, it is a lovely outfit (I especially like the scarf with everything), and I sincerely hope that the neighbors and the new place start looking up!

  33. Neighbors are lame! Probably not all of them, but mine have always been much more concerned about my business than their own, or so it seems. Take a deep breath, let it goooo. Love your nails.

  34. Such a pretty coat, I love it! Especially with those tights in my favorite colour. And I hope your neighbour relaxes fast. Are you going to live permanently in the apartment for a while now? xo

  35. You look so pretty in yellow! I'm sorry to hear about your neighbors - that would stress me out too. Hope everything has settled down for the time being. :)

  36. I'm so sorry to hear about your bad experience with your neighbors! However, this outfit is too cute for words! Combining those shoes with your tights was a genius move <3

  37. Ugh, annoying neighbors are the worst! You should just be super sweet to her so she feels guilty. I really like the color combination you have going with this outfit!

  38. I feel for you girl! This one woman (thankfully she was finally evicted) would complain about barking and actually called animal services on all of the tenants who had dogs. All the dogs here are well behaved, but if you expect a dog not to bark, you shouldn't be living in a building who allows them. Hopefully this is just one isolated incident for you, it would bother me too.

    On another note, I love all the colors in your outfit! I think that mustard color looks fabulous on you <3

  40. This outfit is so lovely. I love the bows on your shoes! Going from a house to an apartment does suck. I hope we can find a house to rent whenever we move. I don't think I can go back to apartment living!
