High vs. Low: A Bright, California Inspired Entry

We’re trying to create some more blog “series” these days as we plan a full facelift of EOS, one of which is a High Vs. Low post.  I did one recently here, and today decided to create two entryway designs based on a bright, neutral California inspired style.  A mix of streamlined classics and textured wovens as well as leather and brass accents.  An accent wall of a pretty small scale paper finishes it off.

Fashion Friday: My Picks From the Nordstrom sale for Now and Later.

(First of all, I love that the spokesmodel for the sale is “David” from Schitt’s Creek… if you haven’t watched it, you NEED TO!)

Some of you asked me to round up my picks from the Nordstrom annual sale, particularly whatI’d buy looking ahead to fall and items that are not super trendy and more classic.  So here are my picks!  I like to stock up on my favorite undies and jeans during ales like this, and maybe buy a fall coat and staple shoes, like ballet flats or boots! And even a Theory top that Meghan Markle wore at an appearance, so if the Duchess likes it, I guess it’s good enough for me! :)

There are some more choices here, including some great home finds and maternity staples, which we all hate paying a lot of money for!:

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Roundup: My Favorite Nightstands

Photo by Michael J. Lee

Nightstands can add a lot to a bedroom, and are a great way to make a subtle change in your bedroom.  Perhaps you have a bedroom “set” from college or a hand me down that doesn’t feel “you”?  A great way to update the look is to get new nightstands in a complementary color (if you have a dark wood bed, for example, I’d get ivory or a grasscloth textured pair).  If you have a lot of space on the sides of the bed, use smaller scale dresser or extra-wide nightstands to really balance the space and avoid dead empty corners.

An Unexpected Palette

I saw this room on Instagram last night (designed by Allison Elebash) and found the palette of medium/ light blue and blush to be really unexpected in a family space. I would typically think of these tones as too sweet and baby-ish to pair together in an adult space, but it TOTALLY works and looks fresh and interesting!  The painting by Sally King Benedict certainly adds some grown up funkiness, and the woven textures of the sofa ground everything.

Fashion Friday: 11 Looks For Busy Moms

Many of you have asked for a Fashion Friday focusing on summer outfits for busy moms chasing toddlers or running all over creation.  That means no strapless bras, no Spanx, no heels you can’t walk in, no super short dresses you can’t bend over in…. limitations galore, yes, but you still want to look cute and don’t want to wear “athleisure” all the time, right? So here are 11 outfits that may help you find something beyond Lululemon to wear!

This is sort of my everyday look in the summer because I have a hatred of shorts.

These pants are comfy and breezy ( again, I hate shorts)

However, if you like shorts, this look is adorable and can go from the playground to lunch with friends no problem.

And  if you want something a little more formal, these are actually reasonably flattering shorts and I love the pattern. (NECKLACE LINKED HERE– I’m obsessed.)

I’ve said it before, Persifor dresses are awesome- stretchy almost bathing suit material that aren’t too tight and keep you cool. I wear these on super hot days! Also, this is my new nail polish obsession- lasts so long and is the perfect super sheer color.

These linen shorts are cut a little wider at the bottom so more flattering to thighs! And these self tan drops are great- put a couple (or more if you wanna get darker) into your regular face or body lotion for a custom glow.

These pants may make you feel like you’re wearing PJ’s but you’re not! WINNING!

I’m pretty obsessed with my camo Rothy’s loafers, these red ones feel Nantucket-y. Also, these jeans are killer and 40% off!

I wore one of these tunics the other day on Insta Stories and got so many compliments! This is the dress version I just bought and it’s the perfect day to dinner kinda look for summer. Also that bag is ALLLLL the heart eye emojis!

For slightly cooler days this look can take you just about anywhere. And bodysuits are the BEST under boxy jackets- more slimming than tucking in a cami or shirt.

While a jumpsuit may not be mom-gear, it is friendly for chasing kids at a more formal event– and this one COMES IN TALL SIZES!!!! Hallelujah!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
