West Elm Loves

Today's adventures led me to West Elm. Totally worth the one hour drive around several blocks of Seattle to find a parking spot.

I am loving what they have for fall!

I may buy a few of these for my boy's room.

The pillows are from Faribault, MN. Love supporting the homeland.

Thinking I need to find a place for this antler art!

Gorgeous spa-like throw. Ocean inspired.

Had to throw in the sparkle pillow. Can't go wrong with a little shimmer in the living room. Something white, something wood, something sparkly, something glass... working on it!

Bought the West Elm Elton Settee in Slubby linen flax today with my new mover's coupon. Can't wait to add it to the nursery and share some pics. Everything else is gonna need to go on a Christmas list and/or once I sell other items list... always buying and selling around here it seems. Anyone in the twin cities in MN want anything? I have some furniture to sell. :)

Fall Glitter Pumpkins

How adorable are these pumpkins my friend Molly made! I can't get enough of their white pumpkin and gold goodness! 

Her home is so stylish, clean feeling and simple and these pumpkins she made go right along with that!

Adorable!

Who wants to go out and buy some white pumpkins now to try it out. I know I do!

Here is the tutorial she followed from Yesterday's Sweetheart, on how to make them. Have fun and happy creating!

Target Fall Finds

With a new move to the Pacific Northwest and Fall just around the corner, me and my two youngest headed to Target today so I could wander through the aisles and feel like I was right back home in MN. :) Land of Target's on every corner, just like Starbucks is on every corner here in WA.

Here's what I came away with! 

Raincoat. 

Leisure Dress.

Plaid Button-Down.

Yellow Cardigan.

Jean Dress.

Gray Detail Sweatshirt.

Comfy Wrap Jacket.

The difference between shopping online and in store is now looking online I see that half the items I bought were from the Juniors department. (Oops.) In store I didn't really notice and just tried on and bought what worked. My goal was to find a few classic pieces for fall, and in general I am sticking to neutrals in my wardrobe to simplify. Probably going to end up returning the yellow sweater and plaid button-down. Color is good but I don't know, I've been working on keeping everything neutral so I don't need to own much but still have cute clothes that go together. I was inspired by fall and thought a pop of color would be fun at the apple orchards, pumpkin patch, WA state fair... think I'll stick to pops of color for accessories.

Download the Target Cartwheel app and get 20% off right now sweaters in store.

So far my favorite is the raincoat! I am wearing it now and love it. It's so much better in person than even online.


Happy shopping.

Piano Nook

So after building a home and closing just last October, we up and moved to the Pacific Northwest this past weekend. 

The other day the piano came and at first everything was looking very much the same. I liked how the piano fit into the nook! When played the sound resonates throughout the house! Love that.

Here is after a few simple things we already owned thrown into the mix. Zig zag from Pottery Barn, lamp from Pottery Barn, Ikea sheepskin, frame from Pottery Barn. Vase w/ hydrangeas.

In the spirit of just finishing things and taking zero time to do it, I like it! It's fun to have a piano around.

 

Have a great evening!
