Our Living
Friday, September 23, 2016 6 Comments Images


Hey beautiful people! Today I have teamed up with AllModern to give you a little tour of my absolute favorite room in our house! Our family room/kitchen area is the place where we spend most of our time as a family. It is where we love to hang with the dudes, watch shows together, have long chats, eat, cook, and just be together. I love, love this room and I am so happy with pieces that I was able to get from AllModern to make this particular room as special as it is. The vibe we love in our house is kind of a combination of casual and cool, and a place that is always feels welcoming for friends and family. Sometimes it is hard to find that balance between comfortable and welcoming, and still keeping it fresh and hip with the furniture and pieces that make up the interior design of the room. But, what I love about AllModern, is I feel like they have the selection and pieces to help you achieve just that, all the while keeping it unique and personal to your style. As you take a look at the pictures of the our house below, you will see that we love colorful pieces as well as mixing in different shades of brown, gold, and tan. One of my favorite pieces in our entire house and for sure my favorite in our family room is the blue sofa. I love the way it looks in our room, I love how comfortable it is to sit on and hangout on, and I love the intricate details of the wood frame that supports it. I realize I just said, " I love," a lot, but it's true haha! I also have a thing for our brown leather chair we got from AllModern, it gives the room that added signature seat that is perfect for reading at any time of day. As you can tell from my words, I am so happy with how this room turned out and have loved working with AllModern. If you haven't checked them out, I highly encourage you to do so. I have linked all the pieces that our found in our family room area below, and my advice to anyone as they decorate their home is to stay true to your style, take chances, but also keep it simple. To me, a home is what it is because of the people that are in it and that visit it, so keep in mind that balance between comfort and style. I hope you all enjoyed this glimpse into our home, thanks so much for following!!

Killing it with Accessories

Hey ya'll! Thursday is here and wow this week seems to be flying by! Today's post takes us back to NYFW with a look that is all about the right accessories. These pics were taken on a day that Brod and I spent in Soho. We love Soho, it is such a cool and hip area, with designer labs, boutique hotels, great food, and lots of people. This look's features one of my favorite handbags of all time and some sunnies to match. I love a simple color pallet of black on black with the dress and shoes, and then adding some fantastic accessories to complete the look and spice it up a bit. What are some of your favorite accessories? Are you a bag fanatic? Sunnies? Jewelry? All of the above? Accessories can be so powerful when worn at right time with the right pieces. I would love to hear about your favorite accessories and where they are from! Take a look below, I have linked the accessories to this look and some other pieces as well. Thanks so much for following! I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday! Make the most of the day, love you all!

Sneaker Time
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 7 Comments Images


Hey gang! Today is a beautiful day and I am excited to be talking about one of my favorite items to wear right now...sneakers! I am in love with the sneaker trend and have been wearing them non-stop all year. I am stoked to be teaming up with DSW to share a couple of my favorite sneaker-style looks with you all today! One thing about sneakers, is that the variety and style of them seems to be never ending. Think about it, there are so many different colorways, brands, and types of sneakers out there that finding those that fit your personal style and the specific ones to fit your look can sometimes be overwhelming. But I say to that, don't let it be. The selection and variety that is there at your fingertips should be a good thing, not a bad one. Use your own taste and style to find the sneakers that fit the look you are going for. You can see below, I styled both these pairs of sneakers to fit my look in very different ways. The first look features pairing a simple and classic pair of vans with a free-flowing dress and denim jacket. I love the way the sneakers add a bit of casual cool to the jacket and dress, without dressing it down too much. The solid colors of the sneakers balance well with the stripes of the dress, and neither the shoes or dress dominate the look in a bad way, rather they play well together. Finding the right sneakers to pair with dresses in both Summer and the Fall is a trend that is on fire right now!

The second look is one of my go-to's. It takes the kind of sexy-cool "athleisure" wear to a new level when you pair them with the right kicks. These grey Adidas from DSW were a great match for the all black look of leggings, top, and hat. The right color of sneakers, for this look I chose grey but other colors could have looked great as well (even more vibrant reds, blues, or greens), mixed with a sleek athletic black look is hard to beat in my opinion. It is a trend and look that fits whether you are running errands, spending time in the city, attending a get together, or chasing the dudes around. So yeah, I love sneakers and if you haven't tried mixing up your looks and adding sneakers to your wardrobe in a big way, then I am telling you now to do it!! They also have great selection for kids, so your little guys can have stylish kicks as well. DSW has a great selection to chose from and making them your own is the key to this trend.
