Random Fashion Favorites

Good Afternoon!  We were up most of the night last night due to back to back tornado warnings and pounding rain.  We had almost 10 inches last night.  So since we are stuck indoors this weekend due to the hurricane and luckily still have power, I did a little round up of some favorite items I've purchased or that I've found on sale.  The top above is a favorite of mine and it's on sale.  Below are a few sale items I have my eye on.

 Swimsuit Favorite

I am normally not a fan of most one-pieces swimsuits, but recently bought this one and love the fit! The black is classic and it's simple, but still really stylish.  The best part is that it's only $35!  I know that we are at the end of summer, but we still have Labor Day weekend.  And it will be nice to have a good suit to start next summer!

Thinking about everyone on the Texas Gulf Coast and hope ya'll are staying safe.

Sale Alert: Bamboo Cordless Roman Shades

Happy Hump Day!  Just wanted to pop in a share a great sale that ends today!  I have had several inquiries on my blog and social media sites asking where I purchased these bamboo roman shades.  I caught them on sale today and just ordered three more for our breakfast nook.  They are 40% off and if you spend more than $100, you get an additional 30% with code: FORYOU43.  Such a steal!

We absolutely love them and I wanted to pass along the great deal in case you've been looking!  Have a great rest of the week!  You can purchase them by clicking here.

Back Patio Refresh

As much as I loved our patio furniture it was really starting to fall apart.  Our back patio at this house does not have an overhang, so after sitting out in the elements everyday it was really looking bad.  But we had it for about 6 years, so definitely got good use out of it.  On our long list of to-do's for this home is an overhang directly over where this furniture sits.  Fortunately, it faces east so we have full shade after 4 pm which really helps in the mean while.

Knowing that we were not ready for the overhang project and whatever we bought would sit out fully exposed, we decided to go with this iron set that was really affordable.  It's from Home Depot and I tried to link it, but could not find it online.  The whole 5 piece set with cushions was around $300.

I added throw pillows from Target to dress it up a little.  I put two of these 18" Brushed Diamond pillows on on the love seat and the Blue Striped Lumbar pillows on the chairs.

Everything seems to be weather proofed really well, but I do try to move all the cushions and pillows in when it rains.  Our umbrella is still going strong.  I've actually been really impressed with how well it's held up.  I bought it last Spring and it sits out all year and has faded very little and the wood still looks great!  I found it at World Market, but I did not see it this season.  This one is very similar.  We also add a few strings of outdoor globe lights and I love how they look at night!

We spend a lot of time back here year round, so it's nice to have it looking pretty again.  It's soooo hot right now, so during the day if we are back here, it's in the pool.  The evenings cool off and we usually get a good breeze, but it's a warm breeze.

Beach Staycation 2017

Hi there!  I feel like it's been awhile since I've posted and I kind of miss it :)  I've been out of town for work and then the rest of our free time has been working on a little DIY project we have going on at our house.  More to share on that soon.

Since I took this new position we decided to stay close by this summer.  So we headed down to Galveston for a few nights and just hung out on the beach.  It's only a little over an hour drive for us which is a perfect getaway when we need it.  I did manage to take a few pictures, but only with my phone.

I hope everyone's summer is going well!  We have 10 days before school starts here, so we are definitely trying to soak up every bit of carefree days we have left.

Have a great day!
