{Interior Design} Blush Crush

Happy Monday, Friends! Did you have a nice weekend? My heart goes out to the state of Texas and anyone who was involved in the Texas church shooting. The evil in the world that is taking place right now is so sickening and gut wrenching...I'm sure you all feel the same.

With that said, I needed a little internet escape to search for some beauty when I came across these soft and feminine blush hued rooms. I definitely am experiencing a blush crush. 


I hope you all have a good day and experience some beauty and love in your world this week! xoxo



Classic Outfit: White Blouse + Denim

Happy Thursday, Loves! I'm sure you've all heard the undocumented rumor that Einstein wore the same thing everyday to simplify his life? As much as I love fashion, sometimes I get his thinking...we've all had those days that we've stood in front of the closet or changed several outfits before deciding what to wear! You can never go wrong with a white blouse and denim. If your work is casual enough, they might even let you wear dark denim with a blazer and pearls. From classy, preppy, edgy or feminine this combo is a no brainer to get you out the door fast. 

How do you wear this classic look? Do you like to dress it up or dress it down?

Fashion: Fall Outfit Inspiration

The cold weather has finally arrived in New England. It's been a warm fall here. I've been pulling out jackets and gloves will not be far behind. I like to look for fashion inspiration every now and then to get ideas to 'switch it up' a bit.  Sometimes shopping with a friend is good too because we encourage one another to try on different things. As much as I know my's always good to add changes now and then so it doesn't look like the same outfit on repeat. Fashion should be fun, not boring.


What is your go to look for fall? Is your weekend look jeans and a sweater? What is you typical work outfit? Have you added any new additions to your wardrobe this fall that you are nuts about?  Where do you find fashion inspiration?


Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Locally some towns have cancelled trick or treating due to flash floods and loss of electricity. All the little goblins, princesses and ghosts may have to wait until their hometowns reschedule. Halloween used to be one of my favorite holidays but to be honest, now that my kids are adults, it's lost a lot of it's appeal to me. Call me crazy but this elf is controlling herself not to put up Christmas decorations. I know, it's BAD. My daughter gets it, she understands. I think we must have been elves in a past life. How do you celebrate Halloween?
