look for less: office space

It may be because I have my own mini home office redesign on the brain, but it seems that gorgeous, chic work spaces are everywhere I look lately (case in point: this article, this article, and this pinterest board). I pinned some really great office spaces on my own interiors board this week, so I decided to pick a few of my favorites to recreate for you! Below I've shown you how to get a room that looks pretttttttty close to the photo. And, because you know I'm always looking for a deal, I've also put together a room with a similar look, but for a lot less.

Currently Craving: Fall Accessories

The air is finally a bit cooler in Texas, and I've been able to pull out my sweaters and start layering a little. While I don't need many new fall or winter pieces (notice I used the word "need"), a fun way to give my wardrobe a fresh & versatile look for less is by adding a few new accessories for fall! And of course, my favorite store's online inventory offers up SO many adorable options. Here are a few of the fall accessories I'm currently craving from TJ Maxx:

Friday Five: Pineapples!

Hello! It's finally Friday, AND a long weekend. If that's not a reason to celebrate with some Memorial Day sale shopping, then I don't know what is. If you're looking to add a few summer-inspired pieces to your closet or home, try something fruity! My favorite fruit style right now has to be pineapples, and I'm not alone. They're everywhere! Here are five pineapple-themed pieces I'm loving:

This refreshing trend is one of my favorites for the summer, but it can also easily go childish or tacky. Here are just a couple tips for wearing or decorating with fruit:

keep the color palette chic mixing the bright, primary colors of fruit can look kindergarten-esque so try picking one, or opt for prints in "unnatural" shades (ie muted tones or black and white) stick to one fruit piece wearing head-to-toe fruit can look like a costume, and when used in decor it can look like you're setting up for a luau pick pieces that showcase only one type of fruit—like pineapples! mixing multiple fruits can look kinda jumbled and can go "baby" in a heartbeat

Try it out for yourself, and let me know what you think! xoxo

 

Happy birthday, Audrey.

Today would have been the actress' 85th birthday, and the world (even Google!) is celebrating. Not only was Ms. Hepburn a talented actress and style icon, she also spent her life helping others. As a teen she secretly danced ballet to raise money for the Dutch resistance against the Nazis, and as an adult continued her humanitarian work, including becoming a Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF. She is the embodiment of beauty inside and out, and a personal inspiration. Happy birthday, Ms. Hepburn!
