Pillow Talk II

My recent move threw a wrench in my pillow-making plans for my couch (if you remember from this post). Now that things have settled down, I've finally chosen my fabric and ordered it last night. I decided to go with a more eclectic look and use four different patterns.

The bottom right fabric is actually a napkin set from Anthropologie. I was in the store a few months back when I spotted it and I instantly loved the color and pattern. When I realized that the napkins were the same measurements as my throw pillows, I thought why not?
Wish me luck!! :)

OOTD: It's A Snowy Deuxhill Day

I woke up to a blanket of snow on the ground and it's cold outside! So I'll be staying indoors today and getting things done around the house. I'll share of pic of what I wore on Monday when husband and I went out to lunch. Have a great Thursday everyone!

OOTD: Floral Frappe

Today I'm taking Gigi to her 1 year doctor's appointment and then I have a bunch of errands to run so I wanted to be comfy (so flats were a must!). I just got this top from Anthropologie for $20 and I love it. I can see dressing it up or down and I know it will go with a lot in my closet.

OOTD: Waffle Weave

Hi readers, I hope you had a great weekend! I always love it when husband has a four day weekend, it's so great to spend some extra time together. We had gorgeous weather this weekend and I feel like Spring is just around the corner so I had to break out this cardigan. Here is what I wore to church on Sunday...

OOTD: Solstice Festival

Happy Thursday readers! This Saturday is my little girl's 1st birthday and I can't believe how fast the year has gone. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. I imagine that as she gets older the years go by even faster. It's a great reminder to live in the moment and enjoy each day with her.

This Little Piggy

Since moving into our new place, I've decided that we really need some new office furniture. I'm on the lookout for a new desk chair, some bookshelves and maybe even some cute new decor. I've had my eye on the Harry Allen Piggy Bank for quite some time and I'm about to pull the trigger on it. It will look great sitting on a bookshelf in our new office, and it's a chic way to store all of my loose change!

OOTD: Shadowed Vines

I woke up to a lot of rain outside so I get to wear my favorite rain boots again! There was a good sale today at Anthropologie but the only thing I caved on was the Floral Frappe Top since it got a second cut to $20. I called a bunch of stores and finally tracked one down in navy, yay! What did you pick up from this week's sale?

Happy Heart Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Husband and I are going out for sushi tonight (mmmmm, can't wait for some salmon sashimi!). Here's a pic of my family from yesterday...

And I wanted to share better pictures of my Valentine decorations. Here's a close up of the heart strings I made out of some scrap paper and an old book (I followed this tutorial)....
I had some little glass hearts and glittery stars that I put in mason jars I had lying around the house. I thought it turned out to be a cute and festive centerpiece.
I hope you all have a wonderful day with your loved ones!

OOTD: My Blue Begonia Shoes

I've always had my eye on the Dusky Begonia T-Straps from Anthropologie, but as soon as Kim posted this outfit I decided that I had to own them. So after calling several stores I finally found them. Yay! And then when I told my sister, I had to call even more stores to track them down for her! So here is my outfit for today that is inspired by the lovely Kim...
