I have something terrible and gross to tell you. There is a mouse in my house. (My apartment, rather, but saying “house” rhymed.) And I am absolutely, positively terrified of mice. More than anything in the world. Horrified. I have lived in this apartment for over 3 years and have never had one until now and it is just awful. I am completely freaked out. I blame the construction that is going on in my building. And now everything is scary. If anything in the apartment moves (even Tyrion), I jump. I swear I’m actually seeing mice everywhere I look. It all began last week when I saw him scamper across my stove and then down under a burner. He came back again one more time before I called my super. My super and I spent an entire afternoon last week… pulling the apartment apart, finding holes, and plugging them up. We even moved the dishwasher and the stove! He didn’t visit for several days and then there he was yesterday afternoon… sitting on the stove. Spiteful little thing.
Every time I see him I scream bloody murder. My neighbors must think I’m insane. I don’t know how something this tiny could be so terrifying, but it is. My super gave me glue traps but those are inhumane so I bought some special closed off traps that Tyrion won’t be able to get into. (Tyrion gets into everything… this part about traps is what is particularly scary.) EUGHHHHH. I also bought some of those peppermint oil diffusers as mice allegedly hate peppermint. I would prefer to just scare him away, I don’t know what I will even do if I catch him. I can’t even think about that.
Oof. Have you ever dealt with this!? I don’t know how this is my first mouse (after eleven years in the city) but it is and ew, just ewwwww!!!
Outfit Details: Loro Piana Peacoat (a few years old but similar here, here+ here) // BP Tunic Sweater // Good American Jeans // Manolo Blahnik Pumps // Margaret O’Leary Scarf (really old, love this, this or this) // Chanel Purse // Celine Sunglasses // Pom Pom Hat // BaubleBar Earrings
But anyway, you come here to talk about pretty clothes and not mice so let’s do that instead, shall we? I own this cozy cashmere (blend) tunic sweater in three colors… heather camel, red mars (pictured), and black. It is the absolute best. Why? It’s crazy soft, the cut is great (long all over, but longer in back so you can wear it with leggings!), and it’s only $90. L-O-V-E. It runs big so size down. I am wearing a small and it fits perfectly.
And also… these earrings – I can’t. I just love them so much. They’re only $38… and for the record they are super super lightweight!
