Fashion Friday: Back to School Fashion for Littles

To continue on my “fall is coming” excitement, I decided to blog about kids clothes today for back to school! I know in the south this happens sooner than up north- so perhaps this is not as premature as I thought it might be!  Buying clothes for Henry is basically my 4th job, so I am pretty good at finding adorable styles that make him look like a tiny grown up. I know my time is running out until we enter the “all Under Armour all the time” phase, from what I’m told, so I delight in still being able to dress him. You won’t find me suggesting $200 Golden goose sneakers or Gucci tracksuits here though 9I am HORRIFIED by the prices of designer kids wear).  I find such amazing things at Old Navy, H&M and J.Crew Factory and when I want to go fancier- the quality of places like Boden, Tea Collection, Crewcuts and Maisonette is pretty awesome.

This One’s Going Out to All the Old House Lovers

I was going to title this, “Old House Porn” and then figured it would get flagged as inappropriate. When in fact, it is anything BUT. The Circa real estate website is the world’s greatest time suck if you are a fan of historic homes! In our office we have not only lost several hours of productivity since I discovered it, but also spent this morning gasping, oooohhh-ing and ahhhh-ing over houses we can’t buy in states we don’t live in.  Because when you work in this industry, THIS IS WHAT WE CALL FUN!!! So I rounded up some favorites from their site in case you too had not discovered it yet (or their other Instagram site @cheapoldhouses).

Fashion Friday: Looking Forward to Fall!

I know some of you will lament my excitement about fall, but while I’m not wishing summer away, I’m also SO EXCITED for fall clothes. Okay, everything fall. it’s my favorite season by miles. I am seeing a lot of fall clothing come online and already noticing trends popping up– the biggest being crocodile textured shoes and bags, straight leg jeans,  tons of animal print of all kinds and looser, cozier silhouettes. And I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT.

I also noticed a palette forming and looked back at the fall 2019 runways and sure enough, there it was. There will be SO much burnt umber, camel, deep reds, navy, pale blues and even peachy tones (particularly mixed with the umber, reds and navy).  This is a great combination because you can make your more summer pastel tones fall appropriate by mixing them with the richer tones.

Round Up: Caning

Image via House of Hawkes, who hacked an IKEA Billy bookcase with caned doors! So good! I love some good caning accents and furniture pieces. It’s a material with a lot of history and adds texture to any space. The pattern itself is great on wallpaper and textiles too! So here is…

This is 40.

Well here we are. The last day of my 30’s. This is really happening, isn’t it?  I typically never have any issue with getting older –as wise people have reminded us, it is a privilege not everyone is blessed with. But this birthday feels different. Maybe because it’s such a big one.…
