Kacie's Kloset: When Nightmares Come True

When Nightmares Come True

 {Top: Daisy Rae (sold out); Shorts: similar; Heels: Target; Bag: similar; Necklace: similar; Bracelet: Ayami Hiroshige Jewelry}

You know that horrible nightmare where your husband comes home with home decor that he would like to hang around the house? Well, that nightmare came to life for me.

Normally, I like the hubby's taste in decoration. We even had a conversation the other day about how we want our house to have a country/garden feel to it (right now it's a little more on the western side). Then the hubby comes home with "treasures" (his words not mine). He "scored" five pieces of "artwork" from a coworker for free. You can't pass up a deal like that, right? Well, you can when the artwork is framed pictures of ducks, wolves, deer, ect. I hate it! I told the hubby, there's a reason his coworker had to get rid of the "artwork" and that reason  is that he just got married and his wife doesn't want it in her house. So why would I want it in mine?! The pictures definitely don't fit in the country/garden theme. Goodness gracious...men!

  1. Love pink and turquoise necklace! Haha, that is pretty funny. If it makes you feel better, we have a Coors Light neon sign hanging in our living room. I figure once we get a house it can go in the "man cave".

  3. Haha, yes, typically free home decor is not the greatest. Bless his heart for being so excited. Can you banish said artwork to the garage?!? ;)

    Loving that you can still rock the shorts. Fall is here in full force and brought some wind with it!

  21. What a great post! I'm wearing the J.Crew version of that necklace in coral as I'm typing this! I wish I could have this necklace in all colors. Also, looking for a bag that is similar to yours, since i can't afford the Mulberry version ;)

  23. You look so pretty, love the pink top and your shoes are amazing. So my husband tried that once too.. he came home with a HAND DRAWN painting that his friend did when they were 16. I told him he could hang it in the garage. It's been there since and he hasn't tried to pull that again! :)

  31. Oh lordy. My husband doesn't bring home art work, however he does think it's 100% necessary to take anything and everything deceased family members have left behind. Don't get me wrong, I am all for having something that reminds you of a special family member who you loved and missed dearly....but I can do without the 100's of mini figurines from his grandmother, several pieces of old furniture in desperate need of repair & upholstering in our garage...the list goes on and on.

    Whats a wife to do?

  33. Ha! That's almost as bad as my husband wanting to hang a puzzle he had finished AND framed in our house. Oh yeah, it's hanging in is man cave! Gorgeous bag, btw. xo

    ReplyDelete
  34. Lol. I found a bunch of framed photographs of bear, wolves etc. in the boyfriend's closet. I suggested they go to our church's Goods and Services Auction (to be fair they actually use "framed wildlife photography" as an example of something to donate....) Yikes.


    Cute outfit though.

  37. When we first moved into our apartment I fell asleep so my husband took it upon himself to decorate the apartment himself while I slept through the night. So now there are swords, fangs, and random asian signs all over the house. One day I will just go crazy and take everything down! But ducks and deer? Wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is a nightmare! :) At least you look great even though the artwork doesn't! :)

  45. Ahhhhhh!!! At least it was just pictures of wildlife instead of mounted heads or something. LOL. Yes, men. You look fantastic as always, and I want to know what your workout routine is!

    1. Oh, he tried to get a mounted deer in the house once. Luckily we were just storing it until his dad came to pick it up so we only had it for a couple weeks.

      My workout routine isn't anything special. I work out for about 45 min-1 hour 4 or 5 times a week. I just run on the elliptical for 30 minutes then do some arms stuff with the resistant bands. I do some squats and some ab stuff too. I have bad feet and knees so I have to do things that aren't too hard on them. Sometimes I'll do one of the Turbo Jam workout videos :)

  56. HA! I literally laughed out loud. That's too funny that he would bring home such horrendous pictures-honestly thinking that he was doing a good job. MEN!!!
