color adventures: a purple & blush sunroom...24 May 2017

Purple-blush-patio-blog

If you have space in your home that crosses between indoors and out—a sunroom, covered patio, enclosed porch—we love the idea of mixing indoor and outdoor to combine them into one very summer-y and happy space. With this month's Color Adventures in purple and blush, here's a look at a pretty sunroom space...

color adventures: a purple & blush sunroom

We started by bringing purple in by adding a diagonal color blocked wall. We chose a lighter shade of purple so that it could more easily go with the other shades of color surrounding it.

Next, we added a fun rug. We used a multi-color rug as the focal point, but because the rug has both purple and blush in it, it ties into the solids that we'll layer on top! If the room is a patio or sunroom, the rug helps to make it more cozy, too.

Add plants and wall planters as a decorative accent to bring the outdoors in.

Finally, pull up some good reads and a cold drink and relax and enjoy!

chic + comfy dresses...22 May 2017

Sonnet James

I am totally a dress person and wear them almost every day when the weather allows for it. But a lot of people say they can't wear dresses when they need to get a lot done or run errands or hang with their kids. Well, there are so many great options these days that are easy to wear, washable, and still look very put together. Here are a few of my favorites!

happy friday + styling my new hair cut!19 May 2017

how to add texture and waves to straight hair

I recently chopped off my hair to a lob (long bob). It feels lighter and really great for summer. I am VERY minimal when it comes to hair and would prefer to roll out of bed and not do anything at all. But when your friend (who happens to be the founder of DryBar) says, "Let me show you what you can do with your new hair cut!"...you say, "OK!". So Alli Webb came by to style my hair, and we caught it all on video so that I could recreate it myself and show others who might have a similar length or type of hair how to style it, too!

If you can believe it, I am actually fixing my hair a few times a week now! It's a fun change to my normal straight hair, and I finish the whole thing in about 5 minutes. I love that the styling here is not about perfection, and looks best loose and however feels right! See the video above for the full how-to!

Have a great weekend all!

38!18 May 2017

Oh Joy

Today, I celebrate my 38th year of life! I remember when I thought 38 was SO old...it seemed like I would never be that age. But once my 30's hit, I gained a new-found confidence. I felt stronger as a person, more confident in who I was, and it felt like I was just starting to turn into whomever I am really meant to be. I don't mean to get all mushy or anything on my birthday, but I also am feeling very happy and content about growing older. Things aren't perfect, there are lots of things I still want to do, but with age, I learn more, I become better at the things I love, and I get to better understand what makes me (and those in my life) happy...which is really the most important thing.

Thanks for following along here on this journey of mine, and I hope to keep bringing you back for a while to come!
