Fashion Friday: Beach Babes with Hollie & Harrie

We’re taking our first trip to the beach with Henry this weekend and am so glad to have one of these Hollie & Harrie Sombrilla canopies to bring with us to keep him out of the sun! Old school umbrellas are such a pain to carry and when the wind blows…forget it!  Chasing an umbrella down the beach as it acts like a giant dart isn’t my idea of F-U-N.

I’m loving the patterns and colors and the fact that it’s got high and low sun “settings”.

And it’s super light and easy to carry- and when heading to the beach with family, there is already enough to lug around.

I’m so happy to welcome Hollie & Harrie to the EOS Sponsor family!  As I plan for this trip I wanted to round up a nice beach-day look for grown ups and kids- and some fun things to pack to make the day enjoyable!

Sponsor Welcome: Summer Style with Dear Keaton

I don’t know if I’ve ever enjoyed putting together a sponsor welcome as much as I did this one. Dear Keaton is new online shop for home and fashion and it is so perfectly curated that I want just about one of everything. Truly. I spent SO much time doing this post because I could not help myself- it was so fun.

Here’s a beach ready look featuring a bunch of their spot-on selections- I need all of this to happen for me:

Some of my Fave Etsy Shops!

Etsy asked me to partner with them to share some of my favorite home decor shops on their site and of course I jumped at the chance because it is one of the BEST resources out there for unique, custom and vintage decor currently available to everyone and anyone!  We use it a lot as designers, especially on e-design projects, when we can’t use our normal local vendors.

So here are some of my favorite and often used shops:

Spark Modern

Amazing selection of pillows made of to-the-trade fabrics from vendors like Peter Dunham, Schumacher and the like.

Color Riot with OKL

As you know from my blogging here I have hard time committing to color in a big way- and I see it all the time with clients too.  It’s scary to invest in a bold color sofa, chair or even wall color- but it IS easy to add it via pillows, rugs and other accents.  And color doesn’t have to be COLOR!!!!!  A subtle use of a couple colors or the use of one strong color in a repetitive way can really make a mark.

So in partnering with One Kings Lane, we decided it was time to add a bit of color back into our office since painting over the bold coral walls with white.  And since I’m obsessed with blue, we decided on blue with a hint of coral-pink (a great combo!)  We found so many great items to make a real pop!

Fashion Friday: J.McLaughlin Fall and a $500 Giveaway!

When we went up to Ipswich for the weekend last week we brought along with us a few favorites from the J. McLaughlin fall collection. I saw this plaid poncho (the hottest silhouette for fall for sure)  in their preview booklet they sent to me months ago, and wanted it something fierce! It’s the perfect fall topper for anyone, but especially for pregnancy! It kept me warm and cozy and most importantly, comfortable.
