Two weekend ago, my brother wed his long-time girlfriend, now his wife. We joined our family in North Carolina for the occasion, so of course, it was a great excuse to find a fabulous dress. And perhaps fabulous shoes and a new bag. And not just any bag – a Chanel bag! I finally went in and got the iconic Chanel 2.55 flap. It instantly makes my outfit look like it’s on another level. I adore it!
And here’s the hubby! I couldn’t help but to share my handsome partner. His suit is from Zara, and his Bowtie, shirt, and pocket square are from Nordstrom Rack. He got lots of compliments on his outfit, which made me happy, since I was the one to suggest the bow tie.
Last week, Mr and I met up with my bestie and her husband. Living in the same city as your best friend is such a luxury! We had a double date at Staple and Fancy during Restaurant Week here in Seattle. They were great company and helped to celebrate our recent home-buying with some bubbly! Our husbands talked sports while us ladies chatted about everything else.
We are finally emerging from the dust of moving. Whew! What a stressful and exhilarating process! Mr and I are loving our new abode. We treat her like a new baby – we buy her new things, make sure she’s taken care of and cleaning her all the time! And yes, it’s a girl. Since my general attire has been jeans and plaid shirts (the typical let’s-run-quickly-to-lowes-for-a-something-or-other outfit), there’s not much style to show you. But we are 95% un-packed and settled in, so I should be back to blogging fun Spring outfits soon. In the meantime, here’s some home decor style to keep you ’til then!

Target is amazing! I found this fab gold vase for a mere $4!
My friends will tell you that I’m a perfectionist. I am. I thought that we wouldn’t want any visitors until we had everything unpacked and all decorated. But, I just love our house so much that I don’t care that people see it as it. Last night, we had our first couple friend visit our house. And I was totally okay that there were still 4 unpacked boxes sitting in the living room. We still entertained them and our house looked just lovely!
Hi everyone! Just a simple and quick check-in. We are in full packing mode now, so I probably won’t be able to update to much in the next few weeks, nor will I be any level of stylish as I clean, pack and move. I don’t voluntarily wear sweatpants and t-shirts on a regular basis, but I think I’ll make an except for packing.
And don’t forget, my ebay sales are closing in about 24 hours, so please check out any of these items if you are interested. Happy Bidding!
The Mr. and I are getting ready for a big change! We are buying our first home this month and will be making the move in a mere few weeks. We absolutely can not wait!
As a result for preparing for the move, I’ve been going through my closet and figuring out what stays and what I don’t need. I’ll actually be downsizing my closet space since the Mr and I will be sharing a walk-in closet (while right now, I have the entire Master bedroom closet). I’m simplifying by getting rid of some duplicate items, or similar items that I have. Please check out my ebay sales for the complete listing of auction items. Below is such a sampling of some of the items I’ve listed, with a ton more items from Anthropologie and J.Crew. Good luck!
I once saw this photo, and I immediately loved the styling! Between the pattern mixing, the unexpected color combinations and the punchy red shoes, it was so eye-catching. I’ve slowly acquired similar pieces to recreate this look and I love it! I think the red shoes in particular make the entire look. It’s such a surprising color but it goes so well with everything!
The camo pants make another debut! Seriously, these pants are super comfortable and they are surprisingly easy to pair with other things I already have in my wardrobe. I’m taking a cue from Kimmie with her Take One, Pass It On feature by wearing camo pants and a gray t-shirt from my last two posts. What do you think?
