Fresh Out the Box

I just received these two pieces from Zara Home and know they will be in heavy rotation this fall.  They are SO good! You may not think of browsing Zara Home for clothes, but they get fabulous casual items and shoes! Not too mention the home goods are to die for!!

 

The In-between

Looking for the perfect transition shoe, not too summery and not boots? These are just about perfect. I have been living in the woven pair since I got them!

 

Currently Obsessed

Big style, (very) small package, 7″ to be exact. I am currently obsessed with these mini bags! I have my eye on one of the three colors hearted below. The icing on the cake is the chic monogram in the corner, you don’t have to add it but I am a sucker for adding my new married monogram to anything.

Real Review – Target Finds

I  picked up a few decor items recently from Target and have to share. These are all the real deal! I got two of these benches for the foot of my bed and can’t recommend them enough. A great sturdy bench with a super cute, neutral cushion. I plan to recover the cushion but you can’t go wrong with the natural linen color.

This piece of art was an impulse purchase for a wall in our guest room. As an avid art collector this is something I normally wouldn’t purchase but the size (it’s large) and price was too good to pass up. The piece truly looks like an original piece of art.

Summertime Sandals

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leather sandals that I can wear with just about anything. At this point I have ordered and returned at least 10 pairs; color not right, straps too thin, straps too tight… you name it, I didn’t love them, even the most expensive of the pairs.

I had just about given up when I came across this pair of Banana Republic sandals. I received them this week and they are perfect!  I look forward to wearing this classic pair of sandals ALL summer!

PS – Banana Republic always has coupon codes/sales, keep you eye out for the best price!

Prime Finds

I hate to even admit it but I’ve ordered way too many things off of Amazon lately. All of these items are in full rotation. The rattan coasters are the newest arrivals and are perfect for cocktails OR for candles. I am obsessed with the one shoulder swimsuit and leopard sarong, such a high-end look for so much less. My go-to summer swim look! I am not normally a backpack person but I have been riding my bike more and more it is the perfect piece to carry all my things and not take up room in my basket. How cute are these dinner napkins? Perfect for summer entertaining. I personally own all of these fabulous finds and would highly recommend them. What’s in your Amazon cart?

 

 

ETSY FINDS

I could spend hours browsing Etsy for unique gifts, beautiful textiles and fun jewelry! It is such a great place to discover new designers and artist. I recently scooped up these pillows for our couch,  hand-blocked dinner napkins for the holidays and a beautiful, handmade necklace.

BLUE & WHITE

We had so much fun registering for our wedding and even more fun putting all of our beautiful gifts to good use. We are still finalizing a few pieces for our China, we went with classic blue and white, and I love how it can be mixed and matched so easily.

Picking Back Up

You know that feeling when you see an old friend that you haven’t seen or spoken to in a while, maybe even years, but you some how pick up right where you left off without skipping a beat?!

That is how I feel about this space. I haven’t been here in a while but am picking right back where I left off – my love (and knack) for sharing fabulous finds.

Over the years I have acquired quite the collection of glassware. Some gifts, some handed down from family members and a few I’ve scooped up along the way. During this quarantine time we’ve been reaching for our glassware now more than ever – cocktail hour, every hour!

I ordered these beautiful glasses, in sage, and haven’t stopped using them since they arrived! They are designed by Sir|Madam and I love the story that accompanies the design.

We were inspired to create this bespoke collection of colorfully festive drinking glasses on a trip to Italy’s beloved Floating City. Designed in homage to the defining arches that adorn Venice’s most iconic bridge, our Rialto Tumbler is perfect for everything from water to wine. Finished by hand in Turkey, it requires a multi-step process that is executed by artisans. No two are exactly alike, and subtle nuances in depth of color and cutwork are to be expected and embraced.
