Color Me Chic: Burgundy

Color Me Chic: Burgundy

From a fab pair of loafers to that perfect print to place on your desk, burgundy is absolutely chic!

{Eye Palette} - Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quad Eyeshadow in Raffinement- I bought this palette in September and still can't get enough! Its a luxury item that is so worth the price tag.
 {Dress} - Madewell has done it again. They make everyday pieces so chic!

Elegant Exteriors: White House & Black Shutters

Elegant Exteriors: White House & Black Shutters

As I have grown up, I have come to really enjoy the look of a traditional american home with black and white details. If you glance at my Exteriors board on Pinterest you will quickly see how much I like the the classic look. Also when I think about certain homes in movies that I tend to drool over, the exterior of the 'Father of the Bride' home is definitely a favorite along with the ever so cozy home in 'Family Stone'.
Lucky for me, Adam really likes the traditional look as well. Score! Above are some of the beauties I've been dreaming of.
I hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

Plaid to the Bone

Plaid to the Bone

For the past couple of weeks my polyvore inspiration pieces have been centered around plaid. No longer are we held to the traditional plaid of years past, now you can spice things up with a gorgeous eye palette or even a cheeky cell phone case.
Everything you see above is under $100 (A Girl's gotta budget!) with the except for the loafers.  Although a these Joie kicks are on sale for $130, that is still quite a splurge. How about an equally cute pair that is 10% of the cost, right here!

Go get you some :)

I hope your past week was met with more triumphs than losses and that you are able to truly relax today.

Don't you just love Saturdays? When I think of Saturday mornings I sincerely get a feeling of relief- its like I've gotten a pass and I don't have to worry, because today, I'm off.  I don't have to respond to that email. I don't have to prepare the paperwork. I really needed today ... So enjoy your self- or as they say on Parks and Rec, Treat yo self!

I'll talk to you soon...

Currently Coveting: Under $100

Currently Coveting: Under $100

When the temperatures begin to drop I tend to gravitate towards luxe items but my wallet doesn't quite feel the same. Most of the time, the items that we really desire having are out of our price range. i.e. $1,500 sheets.  Dream on, Betsy! *No pun intended* But it is a breath of fresh air when you lay your eyes on items that really are within your reach, like the ones above.
Truly, everything is under $80.00 so that makes it even better, right?

Camel Lapel Cape Coat /// $ 75.87

Also, just fyi- the holidays are coming up and these are some great gift options. Wink Wink, Adam!

I hope you have a beautiful autumn day, I'll talk to you soon...

We have now entered into November, one of my favorite months of the year. I truly come alive during crisp, cold weather. This fall has been so beautiful in Middle Tennessee. The past couple of years have been drab and the trees don't really make much of a statement but this year they are breath taking.
I assume its due to the "mild" summer with plenty of rain. Does that make a difference in the changing of the leaves? I'm not sure...I'm not a scientist, totally just guessing here.

I hope you had a lovely weekend, I sure did :) 
The Mr. and I spent lots of much needed time with our families and celebrated the first weekend in November with a cozy breakfast at The Country Boy in Liepers Fork. If you ever pop in, you must try the Backwoods Benedict. It's officially Monday and it's  back to the bump and grind- 

I'll talk to you soon...
