A Three-Season Buffalo Check Midi Skirt for UNDER $30

Last spring I purchased the CUTEST, most versatile buffalo check midi skirt from Target. I’ve worn this skirt so many times since I bought it, I’ve lost count. It’s super summery when you pair it with certain pieces, but I also love how well it transitions into fall. In Texas, the weather is constantly going back and forth between cold and warm during the months of October and November, so I like to keep many of my warm-weather pieces easily accessible, even when it’s technically the fall season. This skirt in particular is the perfect example of one of those three-season pieces; perfect for spring, summer, AND fall. And on top of that, it’s a whooping $29 from Target’s Who What Wear collection. Talk about bang for your buck, right? It’s very flattering (even after a date night full of tacos and margaritas — believe me, I would know) and…

Knock Off Serena & Lily Hanging Chairs

Yup. You heard that right. KNOCK OFF Serena & Lily Hanging Chairs. Christmas came early folks, because I’m sharing with you one of my best finds yet. Everyone knows about those amazing Serena & Lily hanging chairs that we’ve seen spread across Pinterest over the last few years, but unfortunately they’re nearly $700 EACH. I’ve wanted a pair ever since I discovered them, but my pockets just couldn’t seem to take the plunge. After months of research (aka lots of online shopping — you’re welcome!) I finally found a nearly identical match to those beloved Serena & Lily beauties. They’re made by Belham Living, and are sold by Hayneedle. I found them on Walmart.com as well, but I think the price was a little better through Hayneedle. They’re right around $300 each, and come in two colors. I really wanted the “natural” color, but with my existing patio furniture, “white”…

Dining Room Reveal PLUS a Giveaway!

So many exciting things to talk about today, because guess what? Not only am I FINALLY sharing my finished dining room, but I’m also teaming up with Home Zone Furniture to giveaway the same exact model of my dining table. The giveaway also includes either the Palmer Bench and 4 Home Zone chairs, OR 6 chairs without the bench. (Just a heads up though, they won’t be the same chairs as you see pictured in my dining room since I bought those prior to getting my dining set.) My goal for this space was for it to be modern and rustic with a touch of coastal. Pretty much my formula for the entire house! The dining table and bench have the perfect blend of all of the above. The dining table has a modern shape, but it’s crafted with a beautiful rustic wood material. I also loved how the…

Reviewing My Elite Screens Media Room Screen

So I’ve been sharing a few tidbits here and there about our media room, and today I’m super excited to share with y’all my review of our media screen. I even created a short little video for you guys to check out in case you’re in the market for a screen yourself. And even if you’re not shopping for a screen, no worries! The video is also a mini tour of the space, so you can see what it looks like in “real life,” not just through pictures. And just a heads up –  this screen looks even better in person, it’s just a little hard for me to capture the full essence of it on film! Also – As you can see in the YouTube preview below, I make really awesome faces throughout. So worst case scenario, you can always make fun of me while you’re bored at work…

The Cutest Lemon-Patterned Dress You’ll Find For Just $20

2 Piece Lemon Dress  |  Rancher Hat  |  Boho Clutch I’ve been seeing so much of these lemon-patterned sets this season, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for just the right one. I wanted something that was affordable and comfortable all at the same time. Something I could wear on a date night, but also wear around the family and my kiddos. As I always do, I thought I would check Amazon to see if I could find anything worth buying, and that’s when I stumbled across this adorable 2-piece set. When I first got it in the mail, I thought “Ew, this looks cheap.” I wasn’t totally loving the polyester fabric, it was super wrinkled, and it came in a cheap-looking plastic bag. Overall, I just didn’t get the best first impression. I decided to go ahead and give it a chance and steam the wrinkles out and…

3 Must-Haves for a Media Room

If you read my recent post about our media room, you already know that it’s not exactly the “standard” media room that you normally see. I built it, not just so my husband could watch football or basketball, but for our entire family. I built it to be multi-functional. Hey, if you’re going to spend money on building out an extra room, you might as well make it as versatile as you possibly can, right? So here’s a little review from my last post… Last summer when Chad and I were choosing a floor plan for our new build, we  had a list of must-haves that we stuck to. One of the main features that was top on our must-have list was a media room. I didn’t want the stereotypical media room though. We have two young kids and making the space work for them AND us was very important.…

Wax Melts EIGHT – Tom Ford Perfume, Black Orchid NINE – Red KitchenAid TEN – Rose Gold DIFF Sunnies Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to share some of the items that I have personally on my own wish list and also some things I already have, and love. The single thing I love most on this list is pretty hilarious actually. My husband and I are avid fans of the gas station, Buc-ee’s. If you don’t know what I’m talking about (then shame on you — HA, kidding of course), but REALLY… It’s pretty much the coolest gas station ever. It’s massive, with locations all over the country,…

My Favorite Spring Outfit on Repeat

White T-Shirt  |  White Distressed Jeans  |  Leather Slide Sandals  |  Straw Rancher Hat  |  Yellow Tassel Earrings  The weather has finally warmed up here in Texas, which means I can actually bust out my warm-weather clothes. This is one of my favorite times of year because (despite my awful allergies) I can finally get outside and enjoy the sunshine. The warmer temps also mean sundresses, white jeans, sandals and panama hats. And who says you can’t wear white before Memorial day? Pshh! Not me! As soon as it hits 70 degrees, I’m taking those babies out of hiding.  The other day I made my usual weekly Target run, but it wasn’t for groceries this time. I wanted to grab a few basics for spring and pick up some t shirts, jeans, shorts — you know, the works. I recently shared my dressing room diaries (HERE), so if you want…
