At the end of the day I’m really just a jeans and sneakers kinda gal. Clean jeans (usually) and cool sneakers, but I digress. I usually reach for my white Converse or a canvas slip-on, something comfortable that manages to look like a little bit of effort. Check out these ten pairs of modern minimal sneakers that would no doubt tie together any look.

Fall 2016 Wish List

Fall is my favorite season, but it’s for the crisp air and wardrobe options rather than the pumpkin spice lattes (blech!) and shorter days. And I’m past ready to bring out ankle boots, sweaters, and hats. I wouldn’t mind adding these things to my life either…

Let’s Getaway

It may be because I’m about to head to the beach for a few days (with 14 family members, don’t be too jealous) but I’ve been daydreaming about little getaway homes. Or maybe just little getaways in general – to the beach, to the woods, the mountains, the country, the lake – all of them. Wouldn’t it be a dream to own or have regular access to a place just the right size for you and a few others? I have to admit, this is the only time I’m truly on board with the tiny house movement.

Delicate Rings

delicate-rings-1-design-crush

Crescent Ring

I have stupidly small hands that look kind of ridiculous with large rings. Back in high school – shout out to the 90s! – I’d stack my fingers full of chunky silver rings, but the style gods have smiled upon us and much has changed since then. Not only are tiny thin rings the preferred look, but I also now prefer gold.  Check out these thirteen favorites.

12 Places to Find Great Bedding

While there are technically a few more weeks of summer left, I’m already starting to prep for cooler weather. One of my favorite autumn rituals is making my bed as cozy as possible. Super soft sheets, a thin blanket, and my favorite down comforter all come into play as the summer quilt is retired for yet another year. If you’re looking to replace some of your bedding or just up your nesting game, check out these twelve shops that offer some of the best. (Bonus: Several are having bedding sales, so act fast!)

Let’s Talk Entryways

HGTV-Design Crush
HGTV

The entryway to your home is the handshake, the how-do-you-do, nice-to-meet-you extended toward guests. You want it to be both aesthetically pleasing as well as functional – aplace to drop keys, hang coats, and wipe feet. And when done right it can feel like its very own room, despite the size.

Rice Krispie Treats 12 Ways

August means back-to-school and school means rice krispie treats – it’s simple math really. When I was in elementary school few kids had crazy food allergies like today, so it was always exciting when one of my classmates had a birthday and their parents sent along a classroom treat to celebrate. My favorite was always rice krispie treats. I loved their texture and the sticky way they pull apart, and I still do. Check out these twelve recipes for some creative takes on the classic!

Hot on the heels of the enamel pin trend is another – embroidered patches.

All Things Coffee

Maybe you’ve noticed the days getting shorter, or your kiddos are headed back to the classroom, or you just really love the stuff *raises hand*. It doesn’t feel like a day has truly begun until I’ve had a big mug of coffee. During the week I’m usually in a rush to get started working so I stick to standard drip in my Cuisinart, but when I have more time on the weekend to make coffee a ritual I opt for my french press or Chemex. I’m curious – how do you make yours?

Keep On Wearing White

Wearing-White-1-Design-Crush
White Drifter Midi Skirt

It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is only a few short weeks away, and with it the unofficial end of summer. Whatever you do don’t put away those warm weather whites until next year, rather transition them into fall with the rest of your wardrobe. Layer lighter pieces with a jean or moto jacket, maybe put on a pair of tights and boots, or even layer something with sleeves under something without. (It’s also an opportune time to troll your favorite sites for sales on all things summer!)
