My Fav’s – Fun, Fashion and Home

Hey Guys!

Before I go into tonight’s post … I wanted to give ya’ll a quick update on Capture {Ties & Tutus}. I’ve had great feedback and tons of inquiries about sessions.  Yea!  But, I still have a few more openings so email me or post a comment if you can’t wait to join in the fun!  By request, I’m also offering sibling sessions – just let me know it you’re interested and I’ll get you pricing!

In my blog challenge last month, I realized that as a creative person, I’m constantly seeking new ways to express myself, as well as always trying to surround myself with things that inspire me.  And, I thought my blog should represent that!  Playing with fashion and decorating my home are two things that I have tons of fun with.  Here are a few of my FAVs right now … and a couple tips to go with it.  Maybe you’ll get inspired too!

My-Favs IMG_5404aforweb
1.  Okay … I know it’s not REALLY possible to be in love with a shoe.  But, seriously … I love these shoes!  My last pair of nude shoes were NOT this cool and had some kind of weird early-90s design on them.  These?  Well, they’re hot AND super practical!  Some of my fellow stay-at-home-Mom readers may be thinking that heels are only for weddings and church on Sunday.  To you I say – NO WAY!  I wore these babies to breakfast with my Sis, to the school for my son’s class presentation, and to the grocery store to pickup pizza for the kiddos.  And let me tell ya ladies, my hubs loved every minute of it!  I spent less than $20.00 on them at Shoe Carnival – go get yourself a pair!

2.  So right now, my living room is like a dumping ground for all the furniture in our new home that doesn’t have a special place.  It is so lame!  But I’ve got an amazing picture in my head of what it’s going to look like and two of these yummy velvet chairs arrived this week from Kirkland’s to start completing the picture!  I absolutely adore the color, the texture and shape of these chairs!  And, they are one the inspirations for the design theme in my home.  I can’t wait to pair them up with a cool industrial/vintage coffee table and a linen sofa!

3.  Accessorizing is overwhelming for a lot of women … but I love to take a ho-hum outfit and make it POP by adding a few accessories.  My favorite right now is this aqua colored bead/flower bracelet from Styles.  It was less than $5.00 and it goes with everything!  I haven’t found a color yet that I can’t wear this with.  And, the flower makes me feel super girly!

4.  My last FAV was a moment I shared with my son, Cole.  Today he had is first “class presentation” on one of HIS favorite things – the Wolf.  He was so excited to turn in his project and even more excited when I showed up to hear him present it to his class!  He spoke into the microphone like a pro and even fielded questions from his classmates.  He made this ASU Communication Grad so proud!  Way to go buddy!

Got questions?  Need some more inspiration?  Post a comment and let me know what you’re thinking!

Hugs!
