An easy way to perk up your bedroom for spring and summer is with fresh new linens. I rarely use a complete matching set (it reminds me of 90’s “Bed-in-a-Bags”) but rather mix different kinds of shams, duvets, quilts and pillows. Here are a few schemes I pulled together that say “SUMMER” to me!
People ask me often “how do you do all that is on your plate?” And the answer is- I don’t know and sometimes, I fail miserably at it! Like today- I thought I would have time to post WHILE photographing our new office BUT I am currently busy holding up hardware for a shot because I did not have time to install it yet. Basically, I’m a hot mess. Where do all the hours in my day go? #whereserin #peekaboo #photoshopmagic
I’ll post this afternoon or tomorrow morning instead- promise :)
When it comes to brands that become EOS sponsors I am picky. I always want to make sure that the brands I align myself with represent not only my aesthetic taste but also offer products I actually love and would happily use in my own home or for clients. Dear Keaton has been with us since their inception and today they are celebrating their fist anniversary of being in business! I am delighted to celebrate with them, as I know as a female small business owner how hard it is and how much work it takes to keep things moving forward! So I rounded up some of my favorite items from their site, in both neutrals and blues ( my favorite colors) and check the bottom of the post for an AWESOME giveaway sure to make your summer a little better (and boozier)! :)
Their theme of “resort living everyday” works especially well as we move into the summer months!
Here is Boston it went from 50 degrees and rainy to sunny and 94 degrees in a matter of five days. Apparently, we no longer have spring here #helloglobalwarming. As we say in Boston, it’s been a SCORCHAHHHH.
So now that I’m pulling out all my summer clothes at a rapid clip, I have found that I am really feeling red this season. In small doses (stripes) and larger ones too (dresses). From bold orange-red to a more muted earth tone, I think it’s the color of the summer for 2017. It pairs so brilliantly with denim and camel/nude tones– and a tan (faux or real). So together with Nordstrom I pulled together a mix of looks using this tone in a few variations from casual to dressy.
I ADORE this top- paired with distressed denim, cool wedges and spunky earrings (and don’t forget the festive clutch) you’ve got the perfect summer evening look.
