Casual & Cool

December 4, 2014

This outfit just exudes cool girl to me.  This Joel blouse by BCBG has a very feminine silhouette with the ruffle detailing on the front, but the jeans and sneakers give it some edge.  We are big fans of J Brand jeans and we can’t get enough of the Luxe Sateen skinnies.  Like literally…we wear them everyday.  They come in a variety of colors seasonally, and look great with just about anything.  Another great thing about this blouse is that it can be easily dressed up with a Dannijo Imogen necklace.  The leather Seta sneaker by Rebecca Minkoff has cool girl written all over them.  The studs and zipper details take them to next level.  We finished off the look with a bright red lip and a great Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag.  Gray is definitely the it color this season and we are certainly loving it!

Gray, Fuchsia, and Orange

October 8, 2014

 

Several days ago, we posted about the amazing Trina Turk Frea pant. It features a beautiful Fall floral that has the most perfect color combination of gray, fuchsia, and orange! I started really thinking about this color palette and how drawn to it I was. When it comes to my house, I tend to sway towards a more neutral palette. However, I love to bring color in with my rugs. I realized after writing the blog, that my favorite rug in my house has this color combination!! I immediately jumped on Pinterest to see what interiors I could find that featured this vivid yet amazing color combo. I was blown away at the creative and unique ways people had incorporated these colors into their homes. Here a just a small selection of the ones I found that I love.

Some of the rooms featured a clean crisp background with pops of orange and fuchsia while others decked the rooms out head to toe in these bright colors. I loved them all! Anyone that knows me well, knows that I have a bit of a pillow problem. My husband claims I am a “pillow addict”, and I can’t really disagree! I love pillows and think they are a great way to bring in color without over doing it!

If you are skeptical or using bright colors in your home, another great way besides pillows is a great rug or an accent wall covered in awesome wallpaper. I absolutely love a great turkish rug and think they can do wonders for brightening up a room. If you live in South Carolina or close by, there is an amazing place called Scarlett’s that has beautiful antiques and an unbelievable rug room. That’s right, I said ROOM! I have found some really cool turkish rugs for my house there and for great prices!

I also stumbled across some gorgeous table settings using these colors. Tell me you wouldn’t want to sit and stay a while at this table!!
