Game Day Series: Red and Turquoise

Hey friends! I may be writing this post from Colorado, but it’s still Game Day in Oklahoma! When I saw this top I knew it would be perfect for OU games. It’s flowy and has the perfect sleeves! Pictures do not do it justice at all.

Game Day Series: Football Tee

Hey hey, friends! We are currently watching the first NFL game of the season while I’m typing this! I could not be happier. I seriously eat this stuff up. This week for the Game Day Series post, I decided to share a tee that supports football in general, rather than a specific team. It’s perfect for a college or professional game, not so much high school considering it has the word “beer” on it, haha! But I have a cute tee for high school games I’ll post soon. Enjoy your weekend and good luck to you and your favorite teams!

FYI, if you can’t tell from the photo, this tee says “drink beer watch football”. My photographer, aka Billy forgot to mention the fact that my hair was covering up my tee in all of the pics we took. Ha! This tee is from RiffRaff, a boutique in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I may or may not have made Billy road trip with me once to Fayetteville just so I could go to this boutique in person after shopping it online for years. The town is darling and they have THE best game day tees. I’ll link this one below.

2017 Fall Décor: Living Room

Hi friends! Fall is quickly creeping up on us and I couldn’t be more excited. Today I grabbed a pumpkin spice latte and finished my inside fall decorating! Decorating for fall is one of my favorite fall activities. It never fails, I always have my house decorated before the first official day of fall (September 22) ever arrives. Nothing like being prepared! I can’t help it. In my world, fall begins when football starts and Starbucks starts serving PSL’s again. Ha!

When it comes to fall décor, my favorite store is Homegoods (which is where the majority of these products came from). I cannot brag on Homegoods enough. The only downside is, they don’t have an online store so you must actually go into the store. I promise, if you don’t live near a Homegoods, it’s worth the drive to Norman. I was really impressed by their variety. I wouldn’t consider myself “traditional” in my decorating style. I like things a little bit funky (ex. gold chevron striped pumpkins). Luckily, Homegoods has a little bit of everything for every decorating style. Inside I like to decorate with fake pumpkins, whereas outside I like to use the real thing. I’m not sure exactly what I would call this style of fall décor, but it’s totally me and I hope you like it! I’m sorry I can’t link the products, but most of them are from Homegoods. I also love Hobby Lobby and At Home for fall décor, they always have great finds! If you have questions about a specific piece, let me know and I can see if our Homegoods has it in stock! I also wanted to add, if you’re interested in this white and gold color scheme, but won’t be around a Homegoods anytime soon, Nordstrom has some ADORABLE pieces that you can check out here.

Mantel: The mantel in our living room is definitely the focal point of the room. It’s the primary spot in our home that I decorate for fall, because there’s so much good space to work with. The bundles of wheat, both pumpkins on the mantel and thankful sign are all from Homegoods. The large mirror is from At Home, click here for the direct link to the mirror. The fall garland is from an Etsy shop, I really love this one.

Fireplace: I felt there was enough room at the bottom of the fireplace to add a few more items. I typically like to keep things on the mantel and fireplace very balanced and symmetrical. That’s why I added the bundles of wheat on opposite sides of the mantle. However, since that was so symmetrical, I thought it would look good if the décor at the bottom of the fireplace wasn’t as matchy matchy. Disclaimer: As you can probably tell I have ZERO education or training in any type of interior design. So, that’s why I use words like matchy matchy. I’m sure there are words out there that are more accurate and correct but I don’t know them! Ha. The “Blessed” sign, silver basket of pumpkins are both from Homegoods. The pumpkins and vases are from Hobby Lobby, from past seasons.

Dining room/Kitchen:  I don’t personally love a lot of seasonal decorations in the kitchen or dining room. I think it’s because our kitchen and dining room are fairly small, so I’m afraid to clutter them too much. So, I kept it really simple. I added a pumpkin light and this candle to our kitchen bar. This specific light I bought a few years ago at Homegoods, but I found a similar light here. In the dining room, I keep a mirrored tray and just change-up the tray a bit with changing seasons. So, I took out a vase of flowers I had right there and replaced it with a small glass gold pumpkin.

Entryway: Lastly is our entryway! Which, is very casual. I’m not 100% sure I will keep it this way, I think I would rather have something less casual. So I’m keeping my eye out for something new!

I hope you all have enjoyed this post! As soon as I get my front porch decorated I will be sharing that on here. If you have any questions about the items in this post or just need some decorating advice, please don’t hesitate to ask me!

Game Day Series: Orange Tee- Go Pokes!

Happy Orange Thursday, friends! This is the second post of the game day inspired series! The first outfit I posted was a cute dress option for an OU game, you can find it here. So, naturally on this beautiful college game day an orange look just seems right! This top comes off as a coral (ish) color in the photos but it’s truly orange. This look is laid back and comfortable. Perfect for tailgating and rooting on the Cowboys! Enjoy and go pokes!

Mumu Thatcher Tie Top

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday. Yesterday we celebrated Billy’s 27th birthday! I cannot believe we are so old. When I was a teenager, I thought I would have kids and a big house by 26. But now, I’m just trying to take things day by day. We’re extremely happy about where we are in life right now. We’ve both been employed at jobs we love for over a year. Billy works as a relationship banker at First United Bank and I’m a social worker at Norman Regional Hospital. We’re very happy with where our careers are. I’m under supervision for my clinical license and love my mentor/supervisor Whitney. We have a cute little home in Norman with our fur babes. Life is good. I couldn’t ask for anything more. We are so thankful for our health, our family and one another.

Billy is an easy guy to please. I took him to Saltgrass for dinner (his preference). We came home and he watched football on TV. Pretty much his idea of a perfect night. Good steak and football, who can blame the guy? I’ve linked the outfit I wore to our date down below. This blush/rose top is flowy perfection. I definitely recommend sizing once size down. It’s originally $140 and on sale for $98!

Cashmere Poncho

I know it’s hard to begin thinking of fall outfits considering it’s 90 degrees out, ha! But, I’m a believer that you can never be too prepared. Personally, I typically seem to find the best fall finds in July and August. If I find a good deal on a sweater or pair of boots, I snag them immediately because I know come October or November, they’ll be sold out. Growing up my mom only let me shop the current season. I know it’s because I got bored with clothes once the new wore off, so if I bought it to wear the next season, I probably wouldn’t like it anymore once that season came. But, as an adult, I’ve found that you find the best deals and styles before the season even begins. Most of the time, anyway. I think a big part of this, is because of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I bought so many cute things but haven’t been able to share them until now because so many things sell out so quickly. One of my favorite pieces, is this Halogen Cashmere Poncho. Even though it’s not on sale, I still consider it to be pretty affordable for cashmere. It’s perfectly oversized and cozy for cold weather. I can’t wait to wear this in fall.

Soft Bell Sleeve Top

Guys, bell sleeve tops are super hard for me to turn down lately! I think they’re so cute and fun. I wanted to link this one below before it sells out. It’s the perfect taupe color and so so soft. It can be worn on its own, but I think it would be really cute with a utility vest for fall. It’s a really good transitional piece, I definitely think it could be paired with jean or white shorts until it cools off enough for jeans. Speaking of jeans, these AG Jeans are my absolute favorite pair and I wear them constantly. They’re the perfect medium wash. I love that they’re so stretchy and comfortable. They are also linked below. Lastly, I highly recommend these booties! They have a very small heel, they’re perfect for walking long distances. Shoes of all kinds seem to give me blisters but these have been gentle on my feet so far! The taupe color is great for fall, they’re the perfect fall staple.
