Up, Up, But Not Away

I swear, EVERY city in Pennsylvania is bigger than the one I reside in. Jason and I decided to visit Spring House taproom in order to try the Robot Surf Factory beer (pineapple pale ale) but I ended up not loving it it in the end. We ventured around the city, stumbled across my dream apartment, and now I'm stuck on the idea of moving, again. We used to move fairly often - about once a year - and I get a bit stir crazy in the same place for awhile. I never meant to stay in this apartment too long, and I'm surprised I'm here still. I'm ready to move somewhere new, but I am also unable to get the drive to pay more for rent or any sort of vehicle to move things in. Sometimes owning two sub-compact cars becomes an issue - but gotta love our citrus colored tiny vehicles in the city at the same time.

This dress is yet another adorable thing from Modcloth I just had to have. I saw it pop up on the site and fell in love. It's going to become a spring staple, I'm sure. The adorable colors, cut, and how incredibly happy I am whever I see the print just makes it a great piece.

  3. I'm exactly the same way! I hate being in one place for too long, and absolutely LOVE moving around, however when I moved to the States from Belgium I fell in love and married a guy who's stuck to California...he likes the idea of moving, but I don't think it's happening for us anytime soon, and we're about to celebrate our 10th anniversary :/ oh well, he's worth staying in one place for ;) That print is so cute, and the cut looks great on you!

  8. Uoh that dress it's so beautiful!

    I'm waiting to leave my master degree and have some job so I can move with my boyfriend... Then I can talk about what I don't like where we live :) For now it's just " I miss we need to live together"

  9. I love that dress Katherine! I wish I had the urge to move around. I like being in the same place, maybe one day that will change!

  10. love the dress! sometimes i have the urge to move as well even though moving is getting to be a real pain in the butt. if i can't change the apartment then i end up changing and rearranging what's inside and that kind drives yangkyu nuts :)

  17. Aw, Katherine--I hope that you guys are able to find somewhere new you like to live! I'd be the complete opposite, kind of wanting to stay to the same place, but you seem like someone who always wants new adventures and places to go and sights to see. :) I can totally understand that. Good luck on your search. I'm sure you'll come across something!

    Also, tiny citrus cars... That was cute!

    That balloon dress looks like it fits you perfectly, and I just love the cut of it, especially the little slit near the top.

  24. I love this dress- what a fun print! Wish I could do some shopping right now :) We've been living in our place for 5 years and every once in awhile I miss the days of yearly moves. It felt so good to always be getting rid of things and getting used to new floor plans!
