HOME UPDATES + FALL ESSENTIALS

Sunday, October 22, 2017


Today, I'm doing a weekend round up of things that have been going on at the house during the month of October and I'm also sharing a few must have essentials to show-off your Fall style! Keep reading to get all the details ... 



This month, I've been making little updates to the house on a budget, since the goal is to do a major renovation on our kitchen by the new year. So far, we've added a fresh coat of crisp white paint in Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore to the dining and hallways, and painted a gorgeous soft grey on our living room walls in a color called Gray Owl.  I've been trying to create a rustic and cozy feel throughout the house with the help of patterns, color, and textural elements like wicker and wood.  

In our dining space, I've been working on a gallery wall of cozy items to bring in the Fall vibes. I collected the wooden signs I had on hand from one of my favorite decor shops, Vine + Branches and I can't wait for them to be part of this special wall. Since plaid has been a huge thing for me this season, I found a neutral plaid textile that I framed and I think it will bring the perfect amount of coziness to this gathering spot in the house. With a touch of vintage and a buffalo check pillow to tie in with the framed textile, this Fall home is starting to look collected and whole. I hope to share the finished gallery wall with you very soon on the blog. 


There are a few Fall wardrobe essentials I wanted to share with you, that have been getting good use this season. I think every gal should have a few rust toned items in her wardrobe. This parka jacket has gotten lots of love since I purchased it at Target last year. I loved it so much that I even purchased a second jacket in olive green. For these Autumn days, all you need is a light jacket (thank you Miss Congeniality) and it will surely compliment any Fall wardrobe, as it has so well with mine! Here is a similar jacket that I think you will love just much!



With as many boots that I own, there are only a couple that make my list during the Fall season.  A low profile, lived in boot has been my thing lately. They're a versatile, easy boot to slip on and they look great with a pair of jeans all the way to a casual dress, as I wore on Instagram.  These suede Chelsea boots from the GAP have been one of my fave's and they're definitely worth the investment. Consider rain boots in this style as well, with a few others I love below:




Cost Plus World Market has been my go-to for the past year for earrings. Resembling much of Anthropologie's style, I've found their drop leaf earrings to be unique and pretty, at a bargain price point of only $4.99. In fact,  I seem to buy a pair of earrings every time I scourer their store for decor goodies, just like the second pair of pink quartz earrings below, available in store.



There are a couple of exciting posts coming up this week for Fall entertaining, so please stay tuned for more to come. Until next time, have a lovely week friends!

Warmly ~
