Cords+Pink+Overalls

It’s hump day which means it’s a great day for a new outfit! I haven’t liked a piece of clothing this much in a while, when I saw these overalls at Hello Ruby I knew I had to have them. Not only are they overalls, a trend that is so in right now, they are a beautiful blush pink and corduroy! I think they are going to be on repeat this fall season.

These overalls could be worn so many different ways. I got this cute colorblock tee a while back from Romwe and I really love how it goes with these overalls.

Though I didn’t shop the Nsale because I’m not quite ready for fall I picked up these Dolce Vita booties from TJ Maxx for the fall season. Some of last year’s booties really needed to go as they wore out their welcome. However, I don’t usually like to spend a lot of money on trendy items especially when it’s possible to get cute, name brand pieces at a great price!

We’re headed to the mountains over Labor Day and I’m thinking these overalls will definitely be making the trip with me! I’m also thinking my fave suede jacket would look great paired with these overalls also.

So are you ready for fall yet? I just love summer so much. However, this past week thats been in the 80’s and cooled off at night has been perfect. I do love fall, it’s one of my favorite seasons for fashion but I’m perfectly okay if summer lasts a little longer!

How to Style a Small Entryway

falling for fall

To kick off #write31days I’ll be talking about one of my favorite topics: home decor. Though my sister is the interior designer of the family I have quite a love and maybe even a flair for decorating! You should all know by now that I have a love affair with TJ Maxx and Target which, in my opinion, are two of the best affordable spaces to shop home decor besides thrifting/flea market-ing and are easily my go to’s for home decor..and everything else let’s be real. So today I want to share one of the spaces I’ve struggled to decorate in my home and how I used items from two of my fave places!

Oh you don’t have wide open entryways with big windows that let in a whole bunch of natural light, a beautiful grand staircase, and a funky light fixture to boot? Me either.

Since the above images aren’t anything close to my entryway (darn Pinterest again!)¬†I have to make what I have work. Which is a small entryway, we’re talking small folks. You might not even consider it an entryway, it’s more of a landing, but entryway sounds so much nicer!

I’ve taken my small landing and transformed it by adding a few personal touches to make it my own cute little entryway that is a functional landing as well.

First we started by painting the walls…anything is better than off white, especially gray. The gray I used here is Dovetail by Sherwin Williams. Then painted the door mint (Mint to Be by Benjamin Moore), added a few things on the walls like this adorable wall hook from TJ Maxx, some rugs via Target and a bench from you guessed it TJ! There are only two things left that I would like to do: paint the trim white like the rest of the upstairs and to change out the light fixture to a more thrilling piece I’m thinking about this, this and this. What do you think?

Updating a space doesn’t have to take a lot of effort, time or money. Find some key pieces that will really make your space and paint usually always helps. I change out my rugs and wreaths per season but other than that the rest remains.

Though my space may not look like the Pinterest pictures at the top of this post that isn’t what it’s about. Does your space reflect your personality? Is it functional for your needs? Do you feel at home in it? Does it fit your budget? (that last question will always get you ūüėČ ) If your answers are yes to those questions then who cares what anyone else is doing, only care about what you are doing. Don’t be afraid to try new things, or stick to what you’ve always done. Take it from¬†The Nester’s website about her amazing book: The Nesting Place

“For the¬†perfectionist¬†with a stack of art on the floor in the corner waiting to be hung.

For the renter who believes she can’t create beauty where she is.

For the¬†friend¬†who thinks homemaking and creativity isn‚Äôt her ‚Äėthing‚Äô.

For the single girl who values beauty and hospitality.

For the newly married wife with more time than money, the empty nester with more money than time, the mom with littles with neither money nor time.

For¬†anyone¬†waiting on the next house who secretly hopes that it doesn‚Äôt have to be perfect to be beautiful.”

Whoever you are don’t be afraid to redo a space according to who you are and your style.

Until tomorrow…Day 3!
