Fall Wardrobe

It's my goal to do very minimal clothing shopping while we're here in Alabama.  In fact, I'm only allowing myself to purchase two items (more on that in a minute).  I think it will be fun challenge to mix and match the items that I packed in my suitcase to create new outfits.  However, before my "no shopping" challenge began, I knew there were a few items that needed to be replaced.

One of those was a pair of neutral flats.  I love my flats in the fall.  So much so, that my previous ones bit the dust from extensive wear.  These are the new ones I've purchased.  They received good reviews (a necessity when I shop), and I think their nude color will serve me well with a multitude of outfits.  I can't wait for them to come in!

While shopping for the flats, I found this top (it's a vicious cycle).  I love poet tops.  Like the flats, these are also very versatile to mix and match, and I love the ones I currently own.  Plus I figure I can never have too many red shirts during Alabama football season :)  This top is also available in white for those interested.  Both of these items were ordered from Piperlime.  I love shopping at Piperlime because they always offer free shipping and free returns just in case your items don't work out. (And they have cute packaging).

As I mentioned before, there are two other items I've given myself permission to purchase should I find ones I like- a pair of leopard flats (I used my others ones until I wore a hole in the bottom) and a navy blazer.  I think they will both be great additions to what I already own.

You guys will have to hold me accountable on my shopping...or lack thereof.  I'm ready for the challenge and may even post some of my outfits as the weeks go by.  Here goes nothing...

Have a great day Labor Day weekend.  I know I will.  I'm ready to go cheer on the Tide!

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Our Living Room Mood Board

Our living room is slowly but surely coming together.  The biggest To Do's are ordering a new media console, painting the room (which is unfortunately open to the dining room, kitchen, office and breakfast area which means lots of painting to be done!), order a few lamps and a console for the long wall behind the couch. I realize I haven't shared any pictures of our "new" house (we moved in at the end of last October) with you guys.  So here's a glimpse of the living room before we moved in. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left, the living room is straight ahead and the office on the right. A closer look at the living room.  Florida loves their plant ledges...I do not.  You win some.  You lose some.  I also want to replace the tile around the fireplace.   A view from the back of the living room looking toward the front corner of the house. The room behind the half green wall is the office sans the Fr

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp
