A Thoughtful Place


Saturday Shopping: Floral and Plaid

It’s the weekend!!! We spent a great evening with my parents last night and tonight we have a million projects to check off the list. It should feel good to get some things accomplished before we settle in to cheer on my college football team. Go Irish.

Have to share this fall floral dress with you. I was having lunch with a friend and passed by this dress on our way to eat. I couldn’t get it out of my head. The black mixed with the soft delicate flowers is so great. And such a great price. This is making it’s way into many a date nights as well as a fall wedding.

Why I like this dress: It’s crazy comfortable and a tad longer in back which I always love. I love the sleeve length and the pretty feminine flowers. It will also look great with a pair of tights. And I must say it is so much cuter in person than on the store website. It has a great texture which is hard to capture.  It’s a good one, my friends!

Many of you asked about my scarf on Instagram. The scarf is from Target and I LOVE it. It’s inexpensive and crazy soft. It’s also a nice large size and can even be used to wrap around your shoulders if your chilly. But I especially like that it isn’t super heavy like some of the other oversized scarves. Fall for me is all about taking some of my classic pieces that I am willing to spend more money on {boots} and mixing with inexpensive pieces. It creates a timeless pulled together look.

My dear friend, Tammy, who I will be getting together for lunch with today, launched the most gorgeous redesign of her blog. It is packed with inspiration and drool worthy ideas. Pink Peppermint Design really is a beautiful source of daily inspiration.

Every few months I have the privilege of sharing ideas with my sweet friend, Jen from I Heart Organizing. Jen is the real deal and one of the most genuine people I have ever met. This month I am sharing details on how we have kept my son’s non traditional closet organized and working for him. It’s all about ditching the doors, my friends.

And lastly, a little update on the children’s bathroom! The light I ordered arrived and I am completely  smitten. You know my love of stripes runs deep so this was a perfect match. Slowly but surely we are getting closer to the reveal! Stay tuned.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone! I hope it’s a great way. Take time to hug and snuggle the ones you hold dear.
