Chris Loves Julia Kitchen Rescue Makeover

Posted on: Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Have you seen the before and after of this small Pittsburgh kitchen makeover? Its PHENOMENAL and completely my style. I'm in LOVE with the portrait art made by Julia's sister. You can grab your own fine art print of "Elizabeth" right here. I "NEED" it. I also like the idea of this runner in the space.

Head on over to their before and after post to see the entire transformation! Also, check out Chris and Julia's source list to shop the exact look.
Utter perfection! What's your favorite element of the space? Mine is that they stuck to a light color grout with the subway tile. Nothing ruins beautiful clean white subway tile faster than dark grouting. They completed the entire makeover in only six days!

I had to do a quick post on these sale items I just purchased.

The jeans- I'm going to LIVE in them this fall! These are high-rise leggings with an unfinished raw hem at the ankle. They have incredible stretch and are 40% off making them $47.94 They run a little big so I sized down one size and would advise you do the same when ordering.

The block heel sandal- perfect for transitioning into fall. The lacing is on trend as is the block heel. Even better though, the price! $77.37 that's 40% off on a must have trend for fall (comes in black too).

Knit open coat- again, I'm focusing on transitional pieces and this knit coat can be thrown on now with a white tee and layered later with at thick sweater. At $43 I can't afford NOT to have this in my closet.

Silk scarf- I love that this mini silk scarf is on trend and under budget. The color palette is perfect for fall and would pair so nicely with the outfit outlined above. $34.50 adds a whole lot of style to your ensemble.

Fall Cravings

Either you believe blue and black match or you don't. I not only do, but I also love to pair it with hunter green. This outfit screams of autumnal vibes- and I wish I was wearing it right now!
Obsessed with the fact that the dress is $78. This is my favorite kind of fall outfit because to the outside world you look polished and put together while inside you feel cozy and as if you're actually wearing your nightgown in public! So comfy cozy!


Room Refresh

Posted on: Monday, August 29, 2016

I'm helping a friend with a bedroom refresh and this is my latest proposal. A little boho but also glam and serene. We are working with a previously established color palette (blue and white- my favorite). We're doing calming white bedding, a neutral headboard, and the "I AM BUSY" print above the bed. I'm loving the pillows, rug, and chair!

I'm starting off the weekend celebrating the arrival of our marriage certificate! Table is all set for my favorite meal of all time- pizza!

Fall Accessories

I love swapping my accessories out for fall! Updating a few of your everyday items can be a small investment with big impact (key chain, booties, wallet, scarf)
I've put together some investment and some budget conscious picks to help you start to get excited about the "back to school" transition! I loved wearing this hat out in Colorado where it certainly felt like the perfect fall day!

Fashion Focus: Ruffles

Posted on: Thursday, August 25, 2016

We had an impromptu night out last night so I threw on this ruffled number that I snagged for only $89 (also have and love this one). I threw on these sunnies, a tortoise clutch, these shoes, and statement earrings.
Ruffles are everywhere this season and I'm definitely on board with this trend. I rounded up a few similar looks to shop:


Bohemian Bedroom Refresh

Posted on: Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Sometimes a space just needs a little refresh to breathe new life into it! Using existing pieces I put together this refresh for a friends space. Switching out accents like a rug and pillows brings new life to the space without breaking the bank. Adding a bench and headboard makes the room feel more polished and finished.

Classic pieces I'm currently loving and a little glimpse into my coffee table which is making me extremely happy as of late. You can find lots of snaps of everyday life over here on my Instagram.

Those slides are next on my list of must-haves (similar here)! Opting out of the gucci flats- these are a fun, budget conscious, way to wear mules this fall.
White blouses are a staple and I love that this one has the extra flair of the big (detachable) bow. The price tag of $72 is really working for me. I'd love to pair the flirty blouse against the tough vibes of this suede biker jacket- SO GOOD and only $70!
This scarf is a must-have in my book. Perfect for fall, it's lightweight and has the "it" print mixture of both indigo and bandana $45.
Everything else needs no explanation- classic, timeless, and perfect.

Embroidered Dress in Telluride, CO

Posted on: Sunday, August 21, 2016

I loved wearing this look out to dinner in CO last week. I've seen similar dresses listed for about $1,200! Instead, I went to this Etsy shop out of the Ukraine and snagged my dress for only $270. It took a few weeks to ship but was well worth the wait. The embroidery is STUNNING and the quality of the dress is superb!
Here is the exact dress from another seller. I also have my eye on this skirt! I would pair it with a black cashmere turtleneck and tall black boots. I will continue to wear embroidered pieces well into the fall and had to share this great find!

Need to know: Fame and Partners

Posted on: Thursday, August 4, 2016

If only I could be a guest at my own wedding I would DIE to wear something from Fame and Partners. They specialize in formal dresses & customizable gowns that are made to order and tailored for you! The pricepoint is PHENOMENAL. Each dress featured in this post is under $300! Bespoke made in a little as 48 hours. No mass production means less waste. Follow the fit guide, measure yourself, and you're ready to go! Wrong size somehow, you can exchanged for free. The hard part is choosing a style!

What do you think of this business model? Would you order from Fame and Partners?

Just a few things I have and am also looking to add to my wardrobe.
I love the above sunnies because they are lightweight, trendy, and not oversized. They actually fit my face and are such a reasonable price point. I have the little scarf bandana in navy and at 12 dollars I may just have to pick up the red too! This white dress is perfection and finally back in stock. Lastly, these boots are INCREDIBLE. I just don't know if I need brown or black?

Wedding Excitement

Posted on: Monday, August 1, 2016

Our wedding is so close! 
I've left my job, moved to a new state, and am less than two weeks away from our wedding day. Needless to say, it's been a busy summer. I'm trying to check off all of my to-do's and am excited to finally celebrate with family and friends. Everyone tells me that the actual day will go by in a flash. I'm hoping to slow down and take it all in. Do you have any wedding day advice?  Would love to hear from you all.
