Mood Board: Bedroom

Have I told you that we got rid of cable? We tried (and failed) to do this before, but 15 months cable-less, I think we’re over that hiccup. Most days I don’t miss it, but here and there I feel a longing for HGTV. So last time I was at my dad’s I spent a little bit of time on the couch catching up on what I’ve been missing.

Tiny Houses? Cool!

New Property Brothers? Love!

Good Bones? How do I become these women!

No, really. I want to be Mina and Karen. They’re super cool and cute and their designs are awesome. Basically I think their lives look pretty fun and I’m jealous. In fact I was so inspired that I double checked my bank account (still not enough for house flipping) and then settled on creating a mood board on Polyvore.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m available for hire should you need a professional mood board for your next reno. (I’m also available for house flipping, should you have the funds to spare.)

Guys- it hit over 70 degrees yesterday! This means that I can pull out sleeveless tops, right? Because I’m trying to look through clothing for Easter this weekend, and I’m finding it difficult to choose anything but sleeveless tops. For the record, Dean and I are heading to AUSTIN, TEXAS for a long weekend, so sleeves will probably be optional. Saying that we’re super excited, is an understatement. Have any suggestions for our trip? Let us know!


PS- Easter wears from last year.
PPS- if you wanna write a last minute guest post, let me know! WLB will probably be a little quiet over the next week.
PPPS- See you soon, Nicole!

Spring Ahead

Guys. We hit temperatures in the 40’s this weekend and yesterday it wasn’t dark until after 7pm. Do you know what this means? Spring really is coming!
I was starting to feel like Mother Nature forgot about us there for a few minutes.

In honor of the new found sun and the possibility of warm (read: not freezing) weather, I’m going to start bringing spring back into my wardrobe.  The plan is to see what I can use from my closet to build looks similar to this one. I like the idea of incorporating brights and neutrals again- it’s a nice change from my current winter darks. I’m also still on the hunt for a camel coat. I’ve wanted one for a while but I’m hoping there might be a few stragglers left on sale now. Any ideas?

Heat Wave

Keeping in mind that idea of summer comfort, this is what I wish I could be wearing today. Some simple shorts, a comfy but cute tee, fun sandals and simple accessories, make the perfect summer outfit for this little heat wave. (It’s been too hot here to wear anything else!)

On this lovely Thursday that is not yet Friday, I would like to be hitting up a local market and catching up on my reading at a local cafe in this cute summertime outfit. Instead I’ll be at work. At least we have AC.

What do you find yourself gravitating to in the summer?

Crop Tops

I want to be a crop top person- I really do -but I’m all about comfort and feeling good in my clothes and I just find it hard to feel good in a crop top. Sucking in all day is hard work! On the other hand… if I was ever to cave and go after one I think I’d like to style it like this.
