Tory Burch Private Sale!!!!

Okay you guys this is serious business and Tory Burch is offering some serious discounts on some of my favorite stuff right in time to start thinking about Holiday gifting! If you're not already on her email list, click HERE and enter your email address to start shopping! I just sent my little elves a few Christmas hints (specifically this and these) and took it upon myself to upgrade my current Tory wallet (that has been used every single day for 3 years now!) to this tri-fold beauty that was under $150! Seriously great prices you guys and the perfect time to get a jump start on your Christmas list (ahem, might want to send this to the hubs, too)...but don't snooze because it ends on Monday and sizes are already selling fast!

Happy Shopping, friends!!!

One Room Challenge: Week Four!

Hi Friends! Wow, Week 4 of the One Room Challenge! I say this every go-round, but really how have 4 weeks gone by already?! I a few things done over the weekend, but am no where near where I need to be. Writing these posts always gives me a little jump start, so I might kick back into action again tonight. ((In case you need a little refresher, here are the updates from Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3.))

Are you following along on Instagram?? I shared all of the updates below over the week, so you should be! And if you are, my apologies, because you've likely seen this already.

I did a MAJOR happy dance when my wallpaper came in. I was seriously blown away by the color saturation and quality of it. I plan to hang it within the next few days and will give you guys a step by step on the process. The thought of hanging wallpaper usually gives me major hives, but this looks SO easy. Excited to get it up.


Literally right after the UPS man delivered it, I hopped in the car to search for paint. I hit up a few of my favorite paint sources, but actually decided on a Valspar color: Corduroy Black. Now, I feel like the Black is very misleading...it's really a very smoky navy and it's beeeee-you-ti-ful! I would definitely use it again. I don't want to photograph is just yet, because the lighting isn't doing it justice. Here are some inspiration photos to show you the color.



I've also had accessories on my mind. I have been mulling over a darn towel bar for what feels like weeks now. THIS is my ideal, but a little more than I want to spend. THIS is one sale, but I feel like it needs some sort of brass accents against the navy wall. And I am also still dreaming about a solid brass one I saw at a vintage store last week....hmmm which one shall I choose?!

I also scored these brass beauties at HomeGoods this week and think that they will be perfect against the navy walls.


Now the hunt for art work and hand towels begins. Ha! I will Instagram some inspiration photos over the weekend and you guys will have to weigh in!

I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your week....now head over to the linking party to see what all of the other lovely ladies got done over the weekend!!!

What We Wore: Camo Cool

Hi friends! My chica and I are back today talking about one of my favorite trends that carried over from last Fall: Camo! I'm sure at least 50% of you cringed and will potentially stop reading, because really how can camo be cute, right?! I have actually found that camo works like a great neutral in my rotation and can really be played up with a fun colored sweater (below) or down with a black tee and scarf. It always feels chic and adds the perfect subtle pattern, into my somewhat boring colder weather wardrobe. I even bought a few camo pieces for LK, and I adore how she pulls them off. So, to avoid looking like you are going straight into the woods, I always play camo up with fun accessories, and a few girly details. Below I tried something new and was even able to give them a preppy twist. I lived in these camo skinnies and a great camo jacket (see it on Insta here) last year and they are still going strong so far this Fall. Try it. Trust me you will be hooked.
