It’s been a long week. Like a reeeallly long week, so this weekend is very, very welcome. Don’t you love how businesses and homes are decorated for the holidays? Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK! How did this happen? Life moves way too fast, we swear. In order to get in the holiday spirit, we’ve rounded up some screenshots of what we hope our weekend looks like. Coffee and breakfast in bed, warm sweaters, twinkly lights and fresh blooms. Tell us – what are you weekend plans? We hope it’s warm, cozy and relaxing! xx
Navy blue is DEFINITLEY the color the season. Muted purples and greens are definitley at play, but navy blue has made a statement in many, many ways. Not only will you see navy in suede booties, but in faux fur jackets, skater skirts, sheath dresses and now—interiors! And we have to mention how lovely it looks. It’s a total statement piece that commands the attention of the room. Adding accent pieces like neutral throws, multi-color art and pastel pink furniture, makes the room comforting, beautiful and modern. We love, love, love. xx
Booties can be tough to style, so we’re here to give you a few tips. Booties come in all different styles, shapes and textures. We plan to post a few times on how to style them with assorted bottoms, but today we zeroed in on tights (and two skinny black pants). Booties can either cut off your leg line or lengthen and define it. Many of these women opted for slimming black tights and pants and paired them with booties (with skinny and chunky heels, leather and suede) and you can tell that they all work! We highly suggest opting for a darker tight and a darker color booty to really accentuate your legs and make you look long, lean and smooth! Choosing a lighter leather or cognac bootie would pair better with assorted jeans, but when paired with a dark tight it can look disjointed and unflattering. We’ll be back soon with a jean/booty pairing post! Until then – happy heel shopping! xx
Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the week 🙂 It’s such a a great feeling.
Today’s wisdom is a simple reminder that can apply to so. many. things.
Bruises come and go, but a tattoo is permanent. Meaning that if you make a mistake, if you’re feeling less than, if you haven’t progressed or you failed at something, it’s time to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again! Failure can be permanent if we let it. If we let the negativity eat us up and consume our thoughts and emotions. Instead, use failure as a lesson. The next time you approach a situation or project you will have learned from the past and you’ll be able to attack it a different way. xx
It’s always fun to spruce up nooks and crannies around the house. Take for instance – your bedside! It’s such a small space, but can be very important. Not only does it need to be versatile and realistic, but chic and cute! It holds everything from current novels, to reading glasses, your phone, a vase with flowers, tissues—perhaps a candle? There is so much potential. We found a few of our favorite bedside options and with the hopes that it will inspire you to change up your bedroom interior! xx

Who doesn’t love a darling detail? We love, love, love some fringe, a bow, a red accent and today we have a weird obsession to tell you about: the button. It can be found anywhere! From the back-to-the-front of dresses and skirts. On the prettiest of white blouses. On the cuffs of shirts. On side bags and high-waisted jeans. It’s such a beautiful, distinct and often-overlooked detail and today we just couldn’t help but find some special examples. xx
