Mission Accomplished

After countless empty-handed shopping trips looking for pillows for our living room, I decided the only way to get what I really wanted was to make my own. It had been a while since I used my sewing machine but after a few quick youtube refresher videos, I was good to go. After all, I do have a Mom who practically made my entire wardrobe as a child. I also spent the first year of college taking several design classes so it would be pretty pathetic if I didn't have any skills left!

My goal was to make our dark and boring sofa come alive without buying a new one! (If it weren't so freakin' comfortable, I would have parted with it by now!) I found a really great fabric store in the city and snatched up some bright and interesting fabrics to use. I will definitely be making a trip back there soon and adding to my collection.

This space definitely needed some cheerful elements to it. The color palette and mix of patterns is a bit crazy, but in the end I think it works well. Mission accomplished.
Oh, and the best part is that each pillow cost around $8.00 to make.

On a side note, here are my coffee table details. 

 I hope you've enjoyed and happy Wednesday. xxx

Constant Change

Enjoying what feels like could be the last couple of warm beach days. Fall is quickly approaching...

Sneaker Love

I'm not usually one for sneakers unless going to the gym but I NEED these bad boys! 
They are kind of perfect. 
Black or tan??? Leaning towards the tan for once!

Decked in Denim

Is this what comes to your mind when you think of denim overload?
Poor Britney and Justin! Oops I did it again.

Denim on denim can be amazing when styled the right way.
Here are some of my favorite style icons that got the look just right.

Sorry for the lack of updates. My internet has been down, and I am still dealing with it.

Now go grab your favorite denim pieces and wear them all together!
Have a fab weekend. xxx
