Hey guys! I’m super excited about today’s post. I’ve been meaning to get this up for several weeks and finally had the time and energy to track down all of my pics and get them organized for this DIY. If you checked out my Guest Room Makeover Reveal Post from a few weeks ago, then you probably spotted these adorable buffalo plaid ottoman stools. Well, guess what? They’re a DIY. And a super easy DIY at that. It requires very little skill, but a sewing machine is probably better than doing it by hand. Plus they cost less than $30 each with all of the supplies.
Christmas is fast approaching and I’m sure many of you have already begun your gift shopping. Chances are, you’ve got someone like me on your list. Or maybe you’re like me and you love a bit of luxury in your Christmas stocking. Every single year, I ask for a new pair of sunglasses. They’re easily the most worn item in my closet and so I never feel guilty for spending a bit more on them. But I certainly don’t want to overpay. Which is why I’m so excited to be partnering with Smart Buy Glasses to bring you the best way to shop for both prescription eyewear and sunglasses.
One of my least favorite things about shopping in retail stores for eyewear is their lack of selection. Even large department stores tend to only choose the most popular frames from the most popular brands. Smart Buy Glasses has over 180 brands of luxury eyewear and over 80k products which means they have ALL of the style and shapes that you don’t get to see in retail stores. Plus they don’t have to use the high retail mark-up, which means you’ll be paying less for luxury.
I chose these Tom Ford ‘Janina’ sunnies (that I have never seen in store, might I add) and I could not be happier.
I love fun, loud accessories. But, I’ve always been drawn to sweet, dainty jewelry designs when it comes to the stuff I wear everyday. I’ve been wearing out my 3 go-to gold dainty necklaces lately and I knew it was time for an update. So, when I saw Freshie & Zero’s gorgeous line of unique jewelry pieces, I was an instant fan. Their stuff is well made and perfect for everyday wear. I chose some of my favorite pieces to show you guys in the photos below.
Two of fall’s biggest trends in one look? I’m killin’ it in todays post with this comfy, easy outfit! The first trend is Chenille. I’ve seen Chenille EVERYWHERE lately. Its a velvety soft knit with the most beautiful sheen. It’s as comfy as it looks, folks! And nice and warm as well. When I saw this Loft cardigan, I knew I had to have it. I actually ordered it in the blush pink color, but Loft messed up and sent me this mustard color and I’m not even mad about it! I obviously kept it and am LOVING it. The most unfortunate thing has happened, though. It’s out of stock already! So I’m linking some almost identical options for you below!
The second trend is probably one of my favorites, the reintroduction of the Baker Boy hat, or the Newsboy hat, or whatever you want to call it. We were rockin’ these babies circa 2002. I was wary of their return at first, but quickly jumped in head first! I don’t wear many hats. They often just don’t look right on my head, but this style is AMAZING! I think it’s so flattering and kind of rocker chick-ish. WIN!

I’ve FINALLY gotten the time to put together this little gem for you guys! I know it’s be long anticipated and I’m sorry it took me so long. Back in September, I started what I’m calling my room by room makeover on a major budget. Keith and I have been in our house for a little over a year and basically just used the items that we already had when we moved from our little rental in Baton Rouge. It was time to show our house a little TLC. Since our budget it tight, it’s been a slow road trying to get things done around here, but it’s so worth the wait!
The first project I tackled was our Guest Room. You guys got a sneak peak in the video about the new mattress that we got in the post. This room was a mess. I had this gorgeous bed already (I’ll link something similar but it was designed by me and custom made by my uncle) but the other pieces were leftover from college apartments and things we desperately needed to get rid of. I knew I wanted to create a FUN space with little cute details that was super comfortable and hotel-like for our guests! Here is the final product. I couldn’t be more pleased!
