Five Under $50

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I'm loving, and all under $50!

five under $50

one // The only thing that makes the end of Summer more bearable, is the fact that boots & sweaters are around the corner. I love a big, slouchy cardigan, and this one takes it one step further by adding deep pockets. It comes in four great neutral colors, and would be cute layered over a plaid shirt or basic tee. This similar one looks super cozy, too.

two // I fell hard for some fringe booties last year, but didn't want to make the investment because I wasn't sure how long the trend would last. Well, it looks like it's here to stay, but regardless, this affordable pair won't break your budget.

three // I grabbed this bag several years ago, but it sold out almost immediately after. I'm thrilled it's finally back-in-stock, because I get tons of questions every time I carry it! Expect to see it in heavy-rotation, as it's a great size for my laptop & everyday essentials. (I also have this cognac tote, that's currently 40% off!)

four // We don't change up our decor too much for each season, but I do love to swap out pillows & throws. I love these rich, jewel tones, and the velvet is so soft for lounging.

five // I'm a sucker for plaids...but especially those in feminine colors & patterns. I ordered this one, and am hoping it's as cozy as it is cute!

I wanted to add this striped tank dress and this striped pullover to the list, but Seven Under $50 doesn't have the same ring to it! And with the sale price, you could get all three colors of this top for less than $50! What great deals have you found lately?

Bloom Bash Workshop

Thank you so so much for the kind words about our Back-to-School Style post! The kids and I had so much working on it together, and I'm still pinching myself that I was able to work with one of my very favorite brands. They read all your sweet comments last night, and both had a little extra pep in their steps this morning.

This blogging journey has brought me some amazing opportunities, with precious friendships being one of the best. A few months ago, my darling friend Jen (we met online!) and I were invited to speak at the Bloom Bash Workshop, which was created by our gorgeous friends Michaela and Ashley (whom I also met online...a concept my mom still doesn't understand!). ;)

I gave a session on decorating tips, specifically how to style consoles, and Jen spoke on the power of Pinterest. Then we participated in a no-holds-barred Q & A session on all things design and blogging. The two-day workshop was so beautifully styled and planned, it was like living in an issue of Martha Stewart Living.

The workshop was held at the picturesque Lange Farms, a Southern-style plantation with wrap-around porch, rustic barn, and towering oak trees. Sessions included design, photography, flower arranging, calligraphy, and small-business tips, then we had hands-on instruction for styling and shooting a mock wedding. There was even a horse!

I was honored to be included amongst these talented ladies, and left the workshop so creatively inspired! You can see more pics from this gorgeous two-day event here, and find details on the next Bloom Workshop in San Clemente here.

Don't you feel like spending the day on that porch with a big glass of sweet tea?!

Back to School Style

Well, just like that...Summer Break is over. We tried to savor every moment, but somehow it still flew by. But that seems to be the case from the day kids come into your life, right? One moment, they are bald and squishy attached to your hip, and the next the've surpassed your height and have a much better head of hair.

Our 10th and 5th grader marched out the door for the first day of school this a little more excited than the other. (I think the early wake-up call had a lot to do with that.) Of course we had some last-minute shopping last week, to make sure their outfits were 'first day worthy,' and we found tons of great options at J.Crew Factory.
