inspired: navy blue, camel + gold

October 7, 2014

Thank you all so much for the sweet (and helpful!) comments on yesterday’s post!  I’m always so appreciative of feedback, especially in the case of getting little miss on a regular napping routine!  And speaking of routine, it seems like I write a lot about my love of all-things-navy blue, but if you’ve been reading…

September 24, 2014

Yesterday marked the start of fall and, much to my surprise, the temperature never made it above 65, so I’m finally very excited for the change in seasons!  I emptied all of my summer pots and got them ready for some mums, cabbage, kale and ornamental grasses and am chomping at the bit to pull…

serena + lily fall favorites

September 3, 2014

If you haven’t seen the new fall line from Serena and Lily, you need to mosey on over quick, fast and in a hurry!  Their fall catalogue made its way into my mailbox last night and I couldn’t devour it fast enough – bold pops of rich, saturated color are an unexpected, refreshing compliment to…

fall at pottery barn

August 27, 2014

Nothing kills my summer buzz more than a stack of Fall catalogues in my mailbox.  As much as I love the change in the seasons, it’s kind of hard to get excited about riding boots, flannel shirts and faux fur throws when temps are hovering in the 90’s and humidity is off the charts…..HOWEVER…..after flipping…

November 8, 2013

There are now less than two weeks until Thanksgiving – where has the time gone?  When I’m cooking for the holidays, presentation is just as important as the food itself, and to be honest, it can be just as stressful as planning the actual meal, but for me keeping it simple and easy reign supreme…

easy fall table setting

October 23, 2013

When I picked up these gorgeous gray/green heirloom pumpkins a few weeks back, I put them on my front porch, but I loved the color so much I moved them inside to my kitchen table where I could admire them all day long.  I decided to use them as the basis for a simple Fall-inspired…

My favorite part of Fall is sleeping with the windows open at night and snuggling under the covers…until you wake up the next morning and it’s 64 degrees in the house!  While we still have the occassional 80 degree temperatures here and there, I’m loving the cooler weather and dreaming of chunky cable knit sweaters,…

fall wishlist

October 18, 2013

Temperatures are finally starting to drop around these parts (now, if only we could work on the humidity), and I’m so excited to dig into my Fall wardrobe-what I can still squeeze into now at 30 weeks prego, that is!  Everything I’m gravitating toward for Fall is either navy, camel, brown or cream and, of…

diy: reindeer moss wreath

October 16, 2013

With the exception of Christmas, I’ve never really been one to hang a wreath on my front door, but I wanted something bright and Autumn-inspired to greet guests when they came for my baby shower last weekend.  My first thought was a preserved boxwood wreath, but they are a tad bit pricier than I wanted…
