Preppy Ornaments

I’ve been stumbling on the absolute cutest ornaments on the internet. There are so many amazing ones– but these preppy ones have given me all the heart eyes! Do you guys do classic trees, themed trees, or all-the-ornaments kinds of trees? I think for our living room, I’m going to go extra classic. But seeing these…

On My Radar

Halfway through November– what!!!! How! I’ve been on the fence whether to jump into holiday decorating or to wait until after Thanksgiving. But I just don’t know if I can wait that long! I’ve been accumulating some decorations in the trunk of my car to try to resist putting everything up. But I just don’t think…


DIY Embroidered Cocktail Napkins

When I picked needlepointing up this summer, I didn’t quite expect that I would fall down the rabbit hole. But here we are… I’m kind of addicted. Once I started with needlepoint, I found myself looking up all kinds of needlework accounts on Instagram. One of the accounts I started obsessing over was Hibiscus Linens….

Over the years, I’ve learned that having separate winter and summer weight items makes a huge difference. Especially when it starts getting cold.  …

The Lodge Coat

J. Crew’s lodge coat has been one of my favorites for the past few years. It’s definitely the warmest wool coat I own and it’s what I reach for when I’m freezing but don’t want to commit to a puffer. It has everything I want/need in a wool coat for winter and it strikes the…

Diary No. 19

Rounding up another two weeks’ worth of iPhone photos from my camera roll. I’m really liking how my office/second guest room is coming along. I did the desk area as part of a campaign with HomeGoods and it was actually kind of a “stressful” behind the scenes. Part of the campaign was that I had…


On My Radar

I had a GREAT week. I’m not exactly sure what is happening, but I can’t complain at all. A lot of little things seem to be lining up and on a big scale, I feel really at peace with what’s to come. Last weekend I was in Nashville for Pencil & Paper Co’s Creative Camp…
