Happy Friday! It’s been another long week at the office so I’m very happy to see the weekend. With family in town and Emily’s home wedding reception this Saturday, it will be another weekend on the go – and this maxi dress will be worn on repeat! And here I thought summer was for relaxing?! Hope you have a great weekend!
Welcome to the brand new The Brunette One! Things may look a little different around here but trust that I’m still going to bring you great content and I have a ton of posts lined up over the next week! I’ve let go of the pressure of getting a new post up every day, it’s summer and I’ve been busy enjoying the warm weather, friends, family, and my husband!
If you shop at Forever 21, I find that most shopping experiences are either hit or miss. These shorts line up with my trusty leather jacket as a “great” purchase from Forever. Not only do they make my (short) legs look LONG, they are so comfortable they could double for PJs and paired with heels and this sweatshirt from Matilda Muse and you have yourself a fancy little date night outfit!
Let me know if you find any hiccups with the new design, I’ve switched platforms (more to come on this), so I’m still learning the WordPress ropes! xx
Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone is enjoying the day off and spending it with your friends and family! We have a parade and a carnival to hit up followed by time at the pool! Thank goodness for a three day weekend, it is just what the doctor ordered. I’m typically on vacation at Lake Vermilion during the week of the 4th, celebrating on the water, but due to the honeymoon my PTO bank is seriously lacking. To help curb the sting of missing out on vacation, I threw on this new crop top from Boat House Apparel to bring me all the lake vibes I can get!
I’ve partnered up with Boat House Apparel to give you a chance to win this Echo Bay Wine Tote – how cute is this? You have until next Thursday to enter, winner will be announced next Friday!
I like nothing better than wearing an outfit that feels so good you could sleep in it. This cotton jumpsuit that Matilda Muse sent me is lightweight and breathable, a perfect look for a cool summer night! On a completely irrelevant note, have you noticed all these freckles? Summer is in full force and even with a high SPF, they still tend to pop out…one of my favorite parts of summer…thought I wish I was seeing more sunshine then all of this rain! :)
One Kings Lane recently reached out to me and asked me to style one of their mirrors from their new collection. As we sort through our wedding gifts and start paying a bit more attention to the style of our home, I have become ten times more interested in making our house truly our own. What better way to do so than with One Kings Lane?! OKL challenged me with styling a vignette for a vanity, a vanity that I would place in our entry way.
I started out with the Vevey Mirror (which of course I picked – it’s vintage-inspired details and gold finishing, #allgoldallthetime) and styled my vanity accordingly. Along with pulling in my favorite flowers, peonies (of course!), I played around with a traveling theme. This vanity would incorporate treasures picked up traveling the world, a vintage map of Paris, a candle to capture our favorite smells, and a vintage tray to hold our keys and other knick-knacks. While my husband may disagree me on the pink chair, we would both agree on a bright and memorable pillow for a bit of personality!
