Home Decor Roundup

Fall Decor

Halloween Decor


Home Updates

Happy Saturday! I don't usually do weekend posts, but I wanted to roundup some of the home decor posts I have shred on IG lately. I did a poll awhile back and was pretty surprised that SO many people said they were interested in more home decor stuff along with the outfits I usually post. I absolutely LOVE home decor and I am happy to share more of it with you all! We've done quite a bit to our house in the two years we've lived here. We unfortunately had our basement flood in February, and we just finished redoing our basement.  We ordered a new couch months ago and it finally arrived a few weeks ago.  I wish I had better before and after pictures of everything, but I was not good about taking the before pictures so I guess you will have to settle for just the after pics!

The only before and after pictures I have are of the exterior. We got brick pavers in the back and redid the exterior. It just got finished this week and we are SO happy with how it turned out. Picking an exterior color for your house is NOT easy.  I took paint swatches all over town and would walk up to random houses that were similar to the color we were looking for to see how they compared (I pretty much looked like a crazy person - but it was worth it!). I would make Zach stop the car in random places so I could run out and compare colors. We had to get some of our siding repaired as well as some of our trim pieces and our entire chimney was replaced - it was no small job. We hired our painter/carpenters in July so it certainly tested my patience. I was so anxious for it to be done. It was worth the wait.

I linked everything I could. Some things from local shops and Home Goods are hard to find/link, but I tried my best to find similar pieces for you all! If you ever have any other questions about anything I post, paint colors, or any other home decor questions feel free to DM or email me! Also, I added a new 'Home' highlight on my IG to keep everything in one place.

Have a great weekend!

Fall Floral Maxi

Happy Tuesday! Today I wanted to share this under $50 fall dress.
I wore this maxi for a friend's shower and I really love everything about it.  The color is perfect for fall and something about it just makes you want to twirl. It comes in a few other gorgeous patterns as well.

If you've been following along on instagram you probably know that we've been getting our house painted (exterior). They worked on our house for a week and a half, but we hired the painters in July so it feels like it has been forever. Yesterday they FINALLY finished and I am so happy with how it turned out! Stay tuned, I'll be sharing more soon. The only thing we have left to do is put up our new address numbers.  Yesterday, I was very concerned because I wasn't sure how my packages would be delivered without our address on our house! Zach gets home late from football every night so we won't be able to put them up until the weekend.  They probably already know which house is ours since they deliver here all the time - lol!

Thanks for stopping by!

Black & White Plaid Blazer

Happy Tuesday! This leather skirt is one of my favorite new fall pieces.  I can't wait to wear it with over the knee boots and a chunky sweater.  I also love this blazer. It's a great price and it is so versatile. I love a classic black and white look.
The weather has taken a major turn - it is FREEZING! We are going on a first grade field trip to the zoo tomorrow, so we are going to need to bundle up (and take advantage of all the indoor exhibits). I'm excited because the zoo is one of my favorite field trips, I'm just hoping everything goes smoothly. Things are always unpredictable when you have almost 90 first graders! Fingers crossed.
On instagram I've been sharing a lot more home decor lately, and I will be doing a home decor roundup on the blog soon. Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by!

Orange-ya Glad it's Fall?

One of my favorite outfits when transitioning from summer to fall is a blazer or long coat with a mini skirt. I'm loving this burnt orange color for fall. This coat is such a steal (under $50!). It's lightweight so it's perfect for this time of year.
This week has been so slow! Yesterday I could've sworn it was Friday. Thank goodness tomorrow is!
I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
