I couple weeks ago I was perusing a One King’s Lane sale and saw an amazing piece of art I fell instantly in love with. I researched the artist’s name, Nell Waters Bernegger, and found a site FULL of amazing, gorgeous abstract works perfect for my clients (and myself). In fact, one now hangs in my own entry hall! I am going to do a skinny black floating frame around the edges it to finish it off.
And a small limited edition print of one of her gouache pieces is in the living room! How fabulous are these colors?
Nell is such a lovely person and I am so excited to share her work with you! She’s based in Connecticut and accepts commissions (not always something artists love to do). Here are a bunch of examples of her work- for pricing and availability on specific pieces email her at email@example.com .

This week I’ve posted a bit more about fashion than usual, but I couldn’t NOT do one more post on Fashion Friday! This week I made a few purchases, some on the higher end (oh yes I did, a milestone) and others on the more affordable side of the spectrum (these Target booties- so comfy!) It reminded me that some of my favorite items in my closet are my least expensive, so I rounded up a few of my favorite budget-friendly finds of the week for you!
1. Those Target booties I mentioned- so awesome.
2. How high end does this jacket look?? And under $100!
3. I love me a good stripe shirt, we all know that! This one is classic and perfect. (Big sale at Loft today too!)
4. Adorable striped blazer. Also would be cute over a LBD for work.
5. OK, my secret source for affordable skinny jeans? American Eagle! The High Rise Jegging is fabulous and comes in lengths for us tall gals! And they are under $50!
6. Awesome black and white envelope clutch for $40.
7. A long tassel necklace is SUCH a wardrobe staple for me. (And 30% off today!)
8. Another staple, a leopard belt. Duh.
9. A cozy cable knit poncho sweater is so perfect for fall.
10. Another must have- leopard loafers. I love the mini-dot print on these!
11. You know I love my dogs, so I adore this dog print tunic blouse so much! Adorable with skinny jeans and boots!

There is so much going on in our office right now- not to mention the fact that we MOVED our office and are trying to get it set up! We’ve had so many photo-shoots, book layout sessions, project meetings and, thank goodness, laughs. None of this is possible without Lindsey and Allison, who make it feasible for me to maintain this blog AND my business while trying to finish up this book! They each have amazing taste, and I wanted to keep sharing their personal wishlists with you- after all, I am hardly the end all be all of style.
Here’s what the ladies are craving for fall (and some are great gift ideas!)
Lindsey’s List: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. (25% off your order of $150+ today!) // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10.
Allison’s List: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10.

I am not in “the family way” yet, so don’t go reading into this- I simply saw this Ovo high chair and yelled aloud “OHMYGOD! That is the best children’s design I have ever seen!!!!!!!” I mean, look at this thing, it’s freakin’ GENIUS. No longer an eyesore in your dining room or kitchen, this high chair would actually UPGRADE most interiors. No joke. I am head over heels. And of course, as expected, it has the price tag to match- and of course is only available on European sites for a painful 349 euros (about $477 for us). But given how much you use this thing and it’s flexibility (it transforms into a toddler chair) I think it’s worth the investment. Not to jinx myself, but I am almost tempted to buy it and stash it for whenever Baby Gates decides to come our way. Is that creepy?
Buy the white and deep navy chairs on this site. Also available with faux leather harness straps for a little more money.
If that’s the packaging this thing comes in then it’s even better. It’s not even fair to American high chairs.
