My post today is a little inspiration on what my decorating style is at home. I love touches of glamour and including my Texas background with rustic elements. A little shabby chic at times, but more in the sense of using neutrals with pops of color. Most of my furniture is white, (which is hard with my furry ones,) but now that spring is here, I’m excited to use some turquoise like this gorgeous chair, and some fun prints like the chevron rug above. Check out my post on Lovely’s blog, for some more inspiration from the girls I work with!
Excuse me, but who wouldn’t? As Hollywood’s “Jay Gatsby,” or any other role of his for that matter, yes. Yes, Leo, I will kiss you. 😉 For your pure enjoyment.
These beauties are now in a few vases here and there in my apartment. They definitely go with our shabby chic decor, and the soft pastel blue is very calming. Emma and I have been taking long walks in the morning which is very soothing, and the hydrangeas just bring the outside in. I think a must have for adding a little color and de-stress from your busy life!
Speaking of de-stressing, spring cleaning may give you some anxiety at first, but let me tell you, you will feel SO MUCH BETTER when it’s over. This site here has a fantastic check off list to make sure you are good for another year.
And last but not least, it was my roomie’s bday Monday, and Tay and I completely surprised her!! We covered her room with balloons and streamers and they outlined her bed, so it looked like a canopy. It was awesome! This was her card/poster and you’d think this wouldn’t take us very long, but we had to plan it out, get the candy, and don’t be fooled, we totally used a pencil first. Had a great time though and I’m going to try and upload the video of her seeing it when she got off work. Tay? We did good girl, well done! 🙂
Have a great weekend y’all!
Ok I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I’ve been in and out of town, and been my usual busy bee. BUT, I have a whole week planned and I’m excited to share! Tay and I have been brainstorming on posts and the like, where we’d like the blog to go, image and all that! She’s having finals this week, and getting 100s left and right! Woot Woot! Go Tay! I’m sure you can expect a great quote from her tomorrow, but in the meantime, you’ll have to patiently sit through a style post from me. 😉 I hope it does at least inspire you some what.
Upon further review I see that my vest needs some serious lint rolling! Blah. But moving right along to the dress, I’m totally sold when a dress has pockets! Woohoo! Quite a few of our dresses at the shop have pockets in them. Can you imagine?! A wedding gown with pockets! Ok, maybe it’s not as cool as I think it is, but I think it’s pretty handy.
Vest & Dress: Club Monaco
Shoes: Forever 21
As I’m sure many of you appreciate your childhood, it makes sense that Dr. Seuss would be considered an influential figure in our lives. However, it does make me wonder if this happens in books today? Are children really taught to be themselves and see how wonderful that is? Seuss’s words seem so simple and yet so hard to do.
Happy Wednesday, and here’s to the Doc, may many more children appreciate the simple truths of being yourself!
GOTTA love books and coffee! And together! Ugh, amazing. I’ve been loving getting up early in the morning to read and drink my coffee. Something about the morning air, a little chilly right now, but you can smell the spring coming! I have to say it’s a lot easier to wake up in the morning when I had 8am call times in New York. It was snowing when I left, as we sat 40 min on the tarmac while they defrosted the plane. So it’s very nice to be back in sunny california!
As you know, I am part of a book club, and yes, while we do drink wine during these little get togethers, we still read the books! For the next meeting we have decided upon The Great Gatsby and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. The Great Gatsby of course to get ready for the much anticipated movie directed by Baz Luhrmann, and Edgar Sawtelle because I’ve had the book and hear it’s wonderful. Excited to be able to finally read it but also have people I can chat about it with.
Our last book club meeting was great! Our last book posted here, was good. Interesting and comedic, although, my expressions were more like the yellow pill shaped minions on Despicable Me with “wwwhhhaaatttt???” Everyone brought a contribution, like kale salad, veggie plate, fruit plate, wine, and to finish a lovely lemon tart! Next book club meet is at my place on April 1st and I’m really excited!
Hope everyone’s Monday is off to a good start and Tay and I have great posts for you this week!
