Wishin' and Hopin'

I have a constantly growing wish list in my head (and in various online shopping carts) at all times. It can include a variety of items, ranging from a black t-shirt to a house.

Here's a few more realistic things I have my eye on right now...

whale poster
This poster would make a great addition to our home (I'm already picturing it hanging in the bathroom). I love the wood frame, neutral coloring, and quirky concept.

I'm really into subscription boxes right now (Until a few months ago, I didn't even know that was a thing...). This one, from Julibox, includes two cocktail recipes and supplies each month. It would be a great way to learn how to make great drinks and stock my bar.

bear tank
How cute is this bear tank?! It would be perfect with some distressed, high-waisted jeans, strappy sandals, and a long, striped sweater. If only the weather in Washington would allow me to do this sooner than August...

anthropologie rug
I can't even express my love for this rug. My plan is to get the 3x5 and put it in the kitchen, to break up some of the "rental beige". We'll see if I can get my wallet (and boyfriend) to agree.

jeffrey campbell boot 
I have been drooling over these boots for months. I almost got them last week, but decided to hold out for a little longer (until I can convince myself that adding another boot to my current collection is worth the hit to my bank account).

There are about a thousand other things on my list, but I will save those for another post.



Inspiring Me Lately: Home Edition

My home is very eclectic and colorful, mostly because I just buy what I like and don't think too much about whether or not it will work in my space. This is a constant struggle, but I'm working on it! I like too many styles to choose just one, but I love looking at more put-together spaces for new ideas. Below are a few of the spaces that have been inspiring me lately...

emily's gorgeous bedroom

elsie's mid-century inspired living room (including diy record cabinet that I plan to make very soon) - 


love the idea of displaying beautiful pieces of clothing -

can't get enough of these bold uses of color

i would never be able to do this, but i love the idea of a black and white kitchen -



on the hunt.

I always have a running list of clothes, shoes, accessories and even home goods that I am on the hunt for. Right now I'm finding that I could use some good basics in my wardrobe. I tend to buy statement pieces far more often than staples, which leaves me with a bunch of pieces that don't work together.

Here's what I'm on the hunt for right now...

printed or color blocked shoes that go with everything - 

1 - 2 - 3 - 4

the perfect white tee -

a classic leather tote -
