Fall in the Home

Like most everyone else, I am beyond excited that it’s officially fall! Fall is such a fun time of the year and goes by so fast as we’re typically too focused on the upcoming Christmas season. Now, I’m all about Christmas but I think fall deserves its season!

I kept the fall decor pretty simple in my home this year! You may also notice the little black device in the right corner of the above photo. That’s my new Nest camera from Verizon that they let me take for a test drive. I love how it’s not super bulky and doesn’t stick out from my decor like a sore thumb!

It’s always fun to bring out seasonal decorations each year and remember everything that I have and certain memories that go with each item!

 


The Everyday Mr. loves when I keep the coffee table decor to a minimum so that it’s not in the way. Which is a good point so I try to keep this in mind whenever I’m decorating! I used one of my favorite items-this reclaimed wood gold and capiz bowl with a few white pumpkins I picked up at Target last year.

And would it really be a change of decor if you don’t change out the pillows and throws? Not for this girl! I love that gather pillow from Target last year but they have so many cute pillows and fall decor this season too! Shop the pieces I’m loving here.

Though sometimes I go big on decorating my tablescape for the seasons its just not as practical. We actually like to use our table and it’s a lot to clear off every evening for dinner!

This isn’t quite fall themed, however, next month (October) is our anniversary month and I wanted to break out our wedding champs glasses! The bar cart wanted a little festivity too.

From this angle you can barely see that Nest! I love how easy the Nest is to set up, all it takes is plugging it in, scanning the QR code with the Nest app on your smartphone and ta-da! That’s it! It will send you an email when it detects a person, and you can also speak through the camera- super perfect if you want to mess with your dog or your husband πŸ™‚

The mantle needed some changing as well. I didn’t make it super fall-ish, yet mixed some more natural elements with metallics for the season!

That’s it for this year’s fall home tour. Like I said, I wanted to keep it simple this year. Fall decor makes me happy, even in small doses! Have you decorated your home for fall yet or do you wait for October to change it up? I can’t wait to share more fall fashion with you in the coming weeks!

Buy This, Not That: Fall Is Around the Corner

Happy Friday Eve! I’m back today sharing a few fall accessories I’ve been lusting over lately. It’s all too easy to scroll through instagram lately and find beautiful things that you want just to find out they are way out of your price range. That’s exactly what my Buy This, Not That series is all about!

I definitely love high end, designer items just as much as the next fashion blogger. However, buying a $1400 bag whenever I want isn’t my reality (if its yours, go you!!) so I have to find alternatives. I am loving this dupe from SheIn. I first posted about SheIn a long time ago and I still love this website. They have so many on trend items for amazing prices. Plus shipping is free, my favorite type of shipping! πŸ™‚ 

If cute bags aren’t your thing maybe shoes are? The mule trend is giving me life right now. I love all the different styles out there including these and these if you like a little more flair than the nude ones. What’s so great about this trend is that they are uber comfy and can be worn during late summer and all the way through fall!

Last but not least what’s a fall fashion post without mentioning some super on trend booties? Last year I bought some maroon suede booties I shared about in this post. When I saw the blush ones floating around social media I knew I needed them, now who’s going to hint that to #everydaymr?? We do have an anniversary coming up πŸ™‚

 

Buy This, Not That Pre Fall

 

 
 
 
 

Prime Day Deals!

Happy Prime Day! I told my hubs that Prime Day is like a national holiday which means it deserves it’s own post! Instead of a Buy This, Not That post it’s more like just buy it all because it’s all such a good deal. 

Instant Pot // Roomba // Vince Camuto Watch // Splendid Dress // Handheld Steamer // Designer Jeans up to 60% off-love these

These are just a few of the great Prime Day deals that are out there. First things first, if you aren’t a prime member you have to be to take advantage of these amazing buys. We use our prime membership so much that I get irritated ordering online from other companies now because not only do I usually have to pay shipping but it definitely doesn’t arrive in two days! I also love Prime as I’ve started using the subscribe and save program to order things like toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent that I can never remember if we’re out of when I get to the grocery store. Not only does it show up on my doorstep every month or month or two depending upon the schedule but if I subscribe to at least 5 items I get 15% off! I love a good deal-especially on things that are necessities. 

Hopefully I’ve talked you into Prime by now-and no I don’t get anything if you sign up I just love my prime membership that much! Now onto some of the deals I included above: do you have a pressure cooker yet? I love mine and this is a great deal on one of the post popular ones out there. While I don’t have a roomba I’m trying to convince the hubs I need one and I’ve heard this is one of the best deals ever offered on a roomba. And one of my top, all time, must have products is a clothes steamer. I have a standing one but thinking a small handheld one would be great, especially for travel!

As far as clothing, handbag and accessory deals Amazon is having 30% off a bunch of amazing fashion deals. I listed a few up above that caught my eye but there are so, so many more! 

Now get to shopping! Also, don’t forget that deals do expire and can sell out so if you see something you like act on it!

4th of July

It’s Friday which if you have off Monday and Tuesday (like I do!) it’s the start of your long, long 4th of July weekend! (insert salsa dancing emoji) I’m popping up on the blog to share a little of how I decorate for the 4th + a little 4th of July outfit inspo!

I know that a lot of people don’t like decorating for “small” holidays such as the 4th of July, Valentine’s day, Easter etc. I kind of find that idea funny as every other holiday, “big” ones included are still just a day! 

I enjoy decorating for all holidays, big and small! Though I certainly don’t go all out like I do for Christmas I enjoy having a few, cute, unique pieces for the different holidays or seasons.

A couple things that I’ve always wanted in a home are a front porch and somewhere to hang flag bunting. Well color me tickled this house has a front porch and it’s perfect for flag bunting-it’s even painted blue which is the perfect patriotic color for my flags! I ordered these flags from Amazon Prime of course, you can find them here and get them just in time if you have a prime membership!

I also picked up these little flag printed bows at Walmart for $1 each to put on my small pots. And how can you decorate for a holiday without changing out your wreath?? You can’t I tell ya! I didn’t have a 4th of July themed wreath already and I didn’t want to make/buy a completely new wreath. I found myself in Target (shocker) in the dollar section and saw this cute hanging galvanized aluminum cutout of the United States. Immediately snatched it up before knowing what I was going to do with it! I already had my beloved boxwood wreath hanging on the door and I thought it would be cute paired with my dollar section cutout. And guess what?? I love it together!

I couldn’t be happier with how my few, small patriotic decorations turned out! Definitely goes to show it doesn’t take a lot of money, time, or effort to make a space fun, themed and beautiful!

Now that we have the house looking festive all we need is a patriotic outfit to go with!

You might remember this red off the shoulder top I shared on my instagram a few weeks back from Foi Clothing

I love this top so much and can’t get enough of the off the shoulder trend, so hopefully it doesn’t go out of style any time soon! These shorts are from LOFT last year (shop similar here), the sandals are Sam Edelman (similar here).

Those tassel earrings are Stella & Dot, I also love the black and white tassel ones they have right now as well. What I love about these tassels are they can also convert to a really cute stud as well. I love decorating for any holiday, party what have you and love sharing it with you! Would love to see what you guys are wearing for the 4th and how you’re decorating!
