Kitchen Accessories

Good Morning!  How is your week going?  All I can say about ours is that I'm so glad the weekend is right around the corner, because this week has been crazier than usual and the weekend can't be here fast enough!  We are also celebrating my mom and dad's 45th wedding anniversary on Saturday and I'm looking forward to heading to my hometown to see everyone. 

I absolutely love the concept of open kitchen shelving.  You too?  So today, I've rounded up a few of my favorite accessories that might help you style your kitchen.

So many goodies here.  Have you seen the galvanized line at Target?  So amazing!  Many of the others are from West Elm.  They are always a great source for kitchen accessories at a reasonable price. 

Have a beautiful day!

Favorite Top

 photo 0b437393-7ada-4dce-b009-abed17f43759_zpscoco8lnm.jpg

Morning.  Just popping in today to share my new favorite top with you all.  It got way more "likes" on IG yesterday when I posted it then my usual fashion post so I thought maybe you would like it too.  It's really soft and breezy and at only $27 it's a great buy!  They are also running a 25% off sale today only, which brings the price down to around $20.  I think it will be a perfect top as we transition into Spring.  Anyways, you can get you one here and I also linked a couple of other pieces I'm wearing with this outfit and you can shop those below.  Have a beautiful day!

Striped Pillow Covers

Hey there!  You might remember a couple of weeks ago I posted that I bought 2 charcoal striped pillow covers from H&M for $5.95. Yes, $5.95!  Well, here they are...and I love them!  They are 20 x 20 and I used at 22 x 22 pillow insert for them (I usually go a size larger for my insert, so they are nice and full.)  They come in 4 different colors, and the light gray and blue sold out, but the charcoal ones, like mine, are still available.  You can get you some here.  And if you're looking for stripes, I also think these and these are really cute for a great price.

Enjoy your day!

*Update 2/20/15  When I checked the site to purchases these today, now the charcoal is sold out, but the gray is back in stock :)

Spring Break Style

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  I took advantage of the sales this weekend and did a little shopping for myself.  We are heading to a beachy location for Spring Break, and there were a couple of pieces that I've had saved in my shopping cart that I finally hit the purchase button and made them mine, yay!  I picked up the sunnies above and ordered the floppy hat and metallic sandals.  Love all these fun getaway pieces inspired by this colorful Tory Burch book.  I love, love, love her style and her resort wear is always so dreamy.  But since I'm usually a bargain shopper, I definitely do more drooling over her gorgeous line, then purchasing it...but every once in a while during a sale I'll splurge on a piece that I know will be in my wardrobe for a long time.

I also think this dress is really cute and that I could wear it several different ways on our trip.  And I ordered this shirt to wear with my favorite shorts for the spring as well.  So, do you have plans for Spring Break?  I can't believe it's less then 3 weeks away.

Have a lovely day!

Valentine's Day Breakfast

Hi there!  Can you believe it is Valentine's Day this weekend?  My goodness the weeks are flying by!  I'm kind of excited that it falls on a weekend this year!  Grant and I don't go out on the actual day, simply to avoid the crowds.  I much rather go out another weekend or during the week and enjoy a less chaotic dinner together.  Although Valentine's Day often focuses on couples, I like to involve Preston and Lyla in the holiday as well and I usually get them a small little something and just try to make the day special.  Because it falls on a weekend this year, I thought it would be fun to do a Valentine's Day breakfast.  Nothing too fancy...strawberry muffins, heart shaped pancakes or waffles and fruit.  Orange juice for the kiddos and maybe a mimosa for the adults and everyone wins ;)

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to shower your loved ones with little tokens of affection.  And I think some of the most memorable holidays are those spent at home celebrating with your favorite people.  So a special breakfast at home sounds perfect!

Indigo | Design Trend

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone's week is going well.  So, have you noticed all the indigo or navy color trending in home design lately?  Do you like it?  I think blue fits so many styles from classic to contemporary.  I love a deep, rich blue paired with white.  This top picture is gorgeous.  The contrast against the light, linen furniture pairs beautifully.  But as much as I dig the look of the dark walls and trim, my personal d├ęcor style would be to incorporate this color in small doses using accessories like in some of the following pictures.

Good Morning!  Did you catch the game last night?  Loved the halftime show and of course the exciting ending!  Can you believe it is February already!  I feel like we just finished opening Christmas gifts.  But because we have now flipped the calendar you know what that means...Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  So today I wanted to start off the new month with a little V-day gift guide for the ladies.  I tried to round up ideas for you to gift to a girlfriend or that you could forward to your guy to get for you ;)  I love all the girlie-ness in this collage!

Have a great day!
