Fashion Friday: How to Wear Faux Suede

I’ve noticed that faux suede is a huge trend this fall– from leggins to dresses and everything in between. While some applications of it can be downright CHEESEBALL, I have come around to using it sparingly and paired with other rich textures and patterns to create a really nice mix (without the…

The New Boston Area Serena & Lily Store!

When I found out that Boston was finally getting a Serena & Lily store I was delighted. I was even MORE excited to find out it was going to be in my own neighborhood! We almost ALWAYS use a mix of retail and custom/trade items in our work and S&L has long been a source we use again and again. No doubt you are all VERY aware of their site/catalog and have loved their laid back style and family-friendly selection of furniture and accessories. I was invited to get a little preview of the store before it opened last weekend and wanted to share some shots of the amazing, bright space!

I say honed because I find the polished versions to be too cold/bank-like. Softer grey and white versions, or matte black and white can really make a statement without being “trendy”. I’m replacing the floors in Henry’s bathroom with this look- although someday I hope to have an entry or kitchen with these kinds of floors. Here are some of my favorites to inspire you!

Fashion Friday: White Denim in the Fall

 

Someone comment on my Instagram yesterday that they and their friends always argue about wearing white jeans after labor day. I am firmly in CAMP YES YOU CAN, certainly until it gets insanely cold/ snow is on the ground. If you live somewhere where it never gets super cold, I say white denim is a year round staple! If you can find some good bone/ off white denim- even better (although it’s hard to source!) But make sure the white denim you are wearing in the fall is THICK and not that lightweight/ stretchy thin denim- that WILL look bad during the colder months.
