Powder bath inspiration

We just finished up installing wood tile and a Cararra-like tile at Lady Linton last month. I’ve dreamed of updating our bathrooms, and hopefully, that is our next big indoor project. Today I’m sharing some powder bath inspiration that’s gotten me excited about designing two bathrooms this year!

Spring Wardrobe Additions

Transitioning into Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s busy (really busy!) around here but I think there is something about knowing Summer will be here soon and there is a lot to celebrate in my family that makes it so fun. I enjoy taking some of my favorite cooler weather pieces and giving them a new life with some more Spring wardrobe additions.

Today, I thought I’d show you how I stretch my wardrobe to incorporate some warmer weather colors and layers!

Spring Transition Wardrobe

For example, this strap front tee I bought a couple of weeks ago is great for the weekends. I grabbed the gray before the blush was available, but I am loving the blush now too! It is a fun piece to put under with a moto jacket and add some skinny jeans for the weekend. For a casual look, pair with tennis shoes ,or dress it up with strappy block heel . I have those sandals in tan and they were a staple last year!

For a shower or brunch, I love the off the shoulder look. Who knew a little collarbone could be so flattering? I’d pair this silky blue top with tassel earrings, white jeans and a tan bootie. I linked two pairs of AoS jeans, which I bought in distressed black back in the Fall. I’ve gotten a ton of wears and they stretch without stretching out – win!

Both of these two looks could be combined later in the Spring for a more Summery feel with the pink top and white jeans. I’ll definitely be packing the strap front tee for my upcoming trip to Greece. No ironing and a great layering piece as it can be cool at night but warm out in the sun!

Transitional pieces get you from one season to another without breaking the bank! That’s one way I stretch out my wardrobe to keep it feeling fresh without spending a fortune.

So what are you adding to your wardrobe this Spring? Share below!

 

 

 

 

Maui Travel Guide

Happy Valentine’s Day! On a day like this, I find our conversations in our house are usually about fun times or experiences together. Some of my favorite memories are when we are relaxed or on vacation. And this is exactly what starts the wheels on planning our next trip! Who knows what we will actually do tonight since we celebrated on Sunday, but I’m looking forward to some quality time at home together!

Maui is our favorite island, for obvious reasons and getting married there isn’t the only one! Maui has a romantic, golden feeling to it. Idyllic and quaint, but at the same time bold and magnificent.

In planning our 60 person wedding in 2014, I would say “well-researched” might best describe us.  Maui is probably the most popular Hawaii destination after Honolulu. We like that there are more flight options into Maui due to its popularity. From Houston, for example, you can travel and still catch half of a day at the pool if you really want. I’ve compiled some of our favorites with a few trip to bring you my Maui Travel Guide as part of the Hawaii Travel Guide Series. You can also follow along using my Maui Travel Map.

Last-Minute Valentine’s Day Gifts

In my house, we typically take a weekend night around the holiday and make dinner together. Tonight we are making our favorite meal together, which includes: a nice steak, asparagus, and red potatoes. We might add in an appetizer and a special bottle of wine from our Robert Mondavi or La Crema wine clubs.

Two years ago when I was away traveling on the actual holiday, I hid some special chocolates and a card in a closet I knew Chris would NEVER go in and then sent him a text to go find them on Valentines’s Day. Twice in the last month, he has brought up the chocolates I got him so I figured I’d pull together a little list of last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts for some thoughtful gifts that don’t break the bank!
