One Glam Bathroom {Lavender Love}

My favorite thing this week (by far) has been this lovely lavender and gold bathroom over on tiffanyleighinteriordesign.blogspot.com.  The original source is styleathome.com.  I don't think I've seen something this feminine and glamorous in a while and since I have always loved this shade of lavender I think it's perfect.  A girl could spend some serious pampering time in here, don't you think?

I don't know if my husband would be a fan, but come on, I would spend more time in here than he would.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

What I Want: Modcloth

Modcloth is having a sale.  And I love a good sale.

Modcloth Sale

These are my top choices, and I love them. I haven't ordered anything from Modcloth in a while; maybe that should change, hmm? Hope you are having a good week. I, admittedly, am not having the most stellar week. Apparently I am allergic to something, we are thinking the new fabric softener I got, and I keep breaking out in hives and rashes. This morning I woke up to not only the rash on my legs, chest, and neck, but with half of my lower face swollen and drooping. Very scary and very annoying. I spent the morning in urgent care, where they gave me a shot and some medicine. My face is slowly getting better, thank goodness. It'll be one more day off of work for me. (Boo and yea at the same time. I'd actually rather be in my classroom with my kiddos!) So anyway, my week is looking up. I hope yours is fantastic!

Wanted: Wide Leg Denim

My week has started off with a bang.  I am subbing in an honors English class all week so I'm super busy. I've been enjoying many wonderful classic movies lately.  I am always inspired by the fashion choices in these old films.  The ladies wear wide leg trousers when whey aren't wearing glamorous gowns and I don't know which is more sophisticated.  I am really lusting after a perfect pair of wide leg denim for the fall.  I haven't yet researched the best pair but I foresee a trip to Nordstom in my near future!

Will you be wearing wide leg denim this fall season?

Vintage Meets Modern

The other day Rebecca posted this on pinterest, and I fell in love with it the instant I saw it.  I think it is perfection.  I mean, come on, how cute is her hair?  And that outfit is amazing.  I love how classic it is, with such a vintage feel, and yet the accessories and shoes keep it current.  Brilliant.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
Sorry for totally stealing your pin, Rebecca!

Sarah and Target: Good News and Bad News

I was super excited the other day when I saw that Sarah Richardson had posted to facebook that she will be collaborating with Target on a collection Fall 2015.  I did a major happy dance!  I am chomping at the bit to get my hands on Sarah's new book, Sarah Style, so when I heard this news I was over the moon.  Problem is...it will be a collaboration with Target CA not U.S.A.  Say what!!!  I am so very sad.  Come on U.S!  Get with it.  We want Sarah!
You lucky Canadians, you.
I am holding out hope that some miracle will happen and they will finally bring Sarah back to the U.S.  
I am so excited for the weekend!  It was a very busy week and I'm ready to relax with my family.
Hears hoping you all have a relaxing weekend too!
Love to you friends,

What I Want: Orla Kiely

I love looking/drooling over Orla Kiely dresses. They are the exact kinds of fits and styles that I would love to wear to work. I think they are the perfect teacher dresses. If only my teacher's salary could cover the cost of an Orla Kiely wardrobe!

I hope your week is going well. I am exhausted by the time I get home at night; this week is just flying by! I am really enjoying getting to know my new students, but I am also looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Any plans?

Color Inspiration: Shades of Blackberry

When I think of the best crossover inspiration from summer to fall, I think of blackberries.  They are gorgeous and in season right now but their color foreshadows the changing season.  The color is beautifully dramatic and a bit old world.

deep violet and old silver, my colors!
Love the molding breaking up the 2 colors of the wall... kind of liking the color if we have a girl, too

I will definitely be incorporating this rich shade into my life now with blackberry nail polish and a few accents for my home.  
What do you think?  Are you loving it?
