I have pretty big plans for this weekend and I can't wait to get started! First up on the agenda is to potentially paint the brick on our downstairs fireplace. A few weeks ago I painted the mantle and have been itching to paint the bricks ever since. Normally I wouldn't be keen on painting over brick, but the bricks in the downstairs fireplace aren't original and have been repaired with mismatched cement so I think painting it will make a world of difference. Next up, Jason and I are hoping to start patch testing our floors for the best way to refinish them. Fingers crossed that all goes well and if you have experience refinishing old pine floors, let me know in the comments what worked for you. Now, onto what I've been loving this week.Read More
The sun is shining, the grass is green, it's 85 degrees and I'm sharing my fall capsule! Given the incredibly warm temperatures lately, I've decided to change up how I do my capsule this season to avoid having items just hanging in my closet unworn for a few more months. So, instead of laying out a fall capsule that includes the heavier seasonal items that I will need closer to November, I'm leaving them out for the next few weeks or months while things cool down.Read More
Today I'm excited to finally have a new video live! Last week, my hard drive crashed - taking my iMovie library and some un-posted videos with it. I've been trying to fix it since then and fingers crossed it all works out, but in the meantime I was able to film and edit a new video featuring some of my favorite fall transitional looks.
Since I live in Charleston, we don't get cold weather until pretty late in the season so I rely on a few looks to keep me cool but fall ready. With each of these looks, I strive for pieces in lighter fabrics and fall colors to help tie in the new season without suffering heat stroke. Plus, each of these looks serves as a perfect base for more layers as the temps do drop in the coming weeks and months.
I've linked the video below for you and have outlined all the outfit details in the description bar for you as well. Thanks so much for watching and I hope you like it!
Today's post is all about the items I have in my wardrobe every fall. Since I prefer things that can carry me for years, I've had and worn the following pieces for the last 5+ fall seasons. I love these items so much that I'm sure they will keep me going for years to come so I wanted to share them with you. Below, I've linked some options that are still available and have wonderful quality. With the exception of a few things, I either own the exact items linked or older versions from a few years ago that I still wear and love.Read More
The first day of fall is finally here and it's been met with loads of sunshine and temps in the 80's. Rather than be upset that I can't immediately bundle up in cable knit sweaters and blazers, I'm embracing the slow change into cooler weather and soaking up the sunshine. So, as we head into the weekend here are a few of the things I've loved this week.Read More
Even though it still feels like summer here in Charleston, there's no denying that fall is coming. The mornings are ever so slightly cooler and the relentless humidity seems to finally be giving way to delicate breezes. With the impending season upon me, I've started switching my closet over and really honing in on the types of looks I want to create this fall. Like always, I put together a mood board of sorts to help me hone in on the look I'm hoping to achieve and it's making me even more excited for blazer weather! I'm putting the finishing touches of everything today and tomorrow and hope to film it all for you very, very soon.Read More
