holiday weekend sales

While I’m working on my Greece Travel guides, I thought I’d take a quick minute to show you a few of my favorites from, Nordstrom, Gap, and LOFT’s Memorial Day sales. Beyond the significance of honoring those who served our country, this long weekend is known for some killer deals, and I am armed and ready! We are ready to upgrade our gas grill (fingers crossed that it goes on sale) but naturally, I’ve got my eye on a few other items as well!

That blush peplum is about to be on regular rotation during the workweek and that tote will carry literally everything. My favorite Hinge chunk heels (shown in black) are also on sale now too!

updates in the study

You know I am loving the tropical leaf trend as of late! My third leafy addition is these tropical leaf curtains in the study. While the focus of our study is maximizing productivity, we do spend a good amount of time in there and these add a soft layer as well as serve a purpose.

You’ll notice a new layout from when I first shared my office. I now get to share my office a bit more and with more sharing comes more function. We added a second monitor, printer, and rotated the desk. I enjoy looking at the shelves instead of the wall now; however, the glare on our monitors from the window can be a bit harsh.

When I ordered our new pillow shams and purchased these for the study. The fun leaf print adds another print to this bright room, and I’m excited to share them with you today. I used my favorite matte brass curtain rod again too. At $42 it doesn’t break the bank but is a sturdy weight with full-length curtains.

With the desk floating, I look over the shelves now as I work. I’ve enjoyed the enhanced view so far!

I’ve been thinking about adding some art to the blank wall, but I haven’t found what I want yet. Working from home doesn’t have to be such a drag. I’m already enjoying this playful print to add some cheer to our study!

leaf it up

I’m on to you palm print. You’re lurking in the background, hanging out and waiting to pounce while the blue & white does its thing. Why don’t you play together though? Can’t you both share the spotlight this season? I love you both!

They might go by different monikers, but they all have a similar look whether you call the print tropical leaf, palm leaf, or banana leaf or frond. The organic shape, the punch of green, the fun, whimsical feel, it’s just what your room, style, and pool need. I’ve decided I like them all. This kaftan I found the day before I left for Greece was my favorite find yet. I’m adding more leaves to my life little-by-little!

statement earrings

You know when you find something and it’s instant love? That’s how I feel about Alejandra Aspillaga Accesorios and her line of earrings. Like, I needed them (#NEED). I took three pairs of her earrings with me to Greece and they were the perfect addition to so many outfits.

This Peruvian gal has a great eye for combining unique colors and shapes for a one-of-a-kind look. Each pair is handcrafted in Peru and is very lightweight. I had such a hard time deciding which pair! They are each so different and I tried to step out of the box a bit with my color combinations. Continue Reading →
