My Fall Home Tour

Happy October!  Wow, how did that happen?  I finally got around to adding a few touches of Fall to our home this week and wanted to share with you all.  I know being October 1st, lots of people are pulling out the spooky decor, but I'm going at my own pace this year :) 
I have found that I really like using "real" décor to decorate with, like live plants, flowers, fruits and veggies.  I added pumpkins, along with orange pansies and white alyssums, which smell amazing by the way.   And finished this look off with a plaid throw and decorative pillow to help cozy things up in our family room.
Aside from adding the Fall décor, you may have noticed that I switched out the mirror on our mantel.  I have been on the hunt for one for years.  I never liked the one we had when we moved in almost 5 years ago, but could not find a replacement.  I finally found this one at Stein Mart.  The size was perfect, but the color was a really weird orangey-gold.  So because the size and price were so right, I decided to get it and give it a makeover.  I primed it, then painted it with Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze, which is the same color I used on our office doors.  Then I dry brushed it with white paint.  I love the finished look!  I still think I want to hang it, but it will take some work drilling into the stone so we haven't tackled that yet. 
Our breakfast room got some pretty sunflowers and white pumpkins.
Have ya'll seen all the plaid in Target.  Clothes, home decor, phone cases, wrapping paper, etc!  Love it!!  And love these plaid navy mugs combined with the orange flowers and striped mini pumpkins.
And finally our piano got a little dressed up for Fall as well.  My boxwood wreath, also from Target, made an appearance again.  I picked up the clay pots and blue and white striped ribbon at Michael's.

That does it!  Love walking in and seeing all the Fall pretties.  And cool weather...we are ready when you are.
Enjoy your day :)

Fall Essentials for the Home

I am finally getting around to adding a few Fall touches to our home.  I'm a little late to the game, especially in blogland, but I didn't want to force it.  I decided I would get to it when it felt right.  So I popped in a couple of my favorite home décor stores and made a trip to the Garden Center yesterday to pick up some Fall pretties.  Hopefully, I will do a little mini Fall home tour and share with you all soon.
Have you guys been to Target lately?  They have some really cute and affordable Fall décor.  These pieces I've rounded up are all under $35!  
How is your decorating going?

Fall Style Favorites | Navy + White

I rounded up a few fashion pieces I'm looking forward to wearing this Fall.  Loving these gold New Balance sneakers.  I need a pair to wear other than the ones I run and workout it and thinking about getting these.  I think they will be really cute with jeans and shorts.  I also needed a lighter colored pair of jeans so I went with this pair.  And just ordered this cute scarf!  It's 50% off right now, making it under $20! 
I'm slowly getting my Fall wardrobe together...now we just need the 90 degree temps to fade away.
Enjoy your day!
