Friday Finds: 5 of my Favorites

Hi friends, happy Friday! I hope you had a great week! My husband came down with a cold, so he's home from work today and I've got the thieves diffusing and I'm taking a bunch of vitamins so I can try to avoid it. So far it's not too bad, thankfully!
Today I'm sharing 5 of my favorite finds as of lately, then some sales down below. Let me know what you're loving in the comments!
1. This cozy pullover. I've worn it three times this week...don't judge ;) You wouldn't if you knew just how amazing it was! It's on sale for under $50 today. I got the XS and it's still a little over-sized which I like. It's lined with the same fabric inside as you see on the outside. So warm!
 Don't miss this, girls.

 I got the cream with black trim and it's great-- goes with everything!

2. The new Blondo bootie design this year is so cute with the detail on the back! I have last year's design in this heel height and they're awesome. These are the waterproof booties I always talk about! Just give them 3 wears and they'll be the most comfortable bootie you've ever worn. And I ordered 1/2 size up, like suggested, and it was perfect.

3. Beautycounter launched their gift sets for the year and you might be thinking "it's too early for holiday!", BUT think of how much time and stress you'd be saving if you got some gifting out of the way now :) Our sets are a great way to try products at a discounted rate, too! This mini face oil set always sells out first! A couple of my personal favorites:
- Skin care favorites: this has our cleansing stick, mini charcoal mask, full sized resurfacing peel (my favorite product ever) and mini brightening face oil. This is an amazing value at under $100.
- Lip polishing set: this comes with a lip scrub (so necessary in the winter!), balm and clear gloss, all of which I love!
- Lip Jellies Collection: 5 of these little lip jellies which are hydrating and each have their own scent-- butterscotch, sorbet, raspberry, orange cream and peppermint. Perfect to give as a set or break up and give one to each of your girls.
4. Pretty much all the Madewell sweaters. I'm so excited because a Madewell store is opening 5 minutes (dangerously close) from our house in about 10 days! I can't wait!! Here are my faves this week:

This one might be my all time favorite. I've been eyeing it for a couple weeks now and and it's on sale + an additional 30% off! It comes in cream, blush and deep red / berry. The little balls on the sleeves are SO cute and I love that oversized sleeve with the tight wrist.

5. These sweats! Okay, I finally got to feel these Lou & Grey from the LOFT sweatpants and they are the softest things I've ever felt, ever. Like literal butter. I told my mom about them and she promptly went to the store to get herself a pair (and rumor has it she grabbed me a pair for my birthday in 2 weeks ;)) You can dress them up and down or sleep in them...Can I get an AMEN?! True to size.

Those are my Friday Finds this week! Hope you have a great weekend!

Our Fall Decor 2019

Our fall decor is up and I thought I'd show you around! It's all very simple, like usual. If you remember, in our apartment we had a ledge coming up our stairs that was great for decorating! Now that we don't have that, I had a couple pieces of decor I couldn't do anything with because they were really large and won't fit on our new builtins. But I'm happy with how these turned out. You can see my summer shelves in this post and you might not notice, not much changed! I simply switched out some neutral fall decor for some of the summer pieces. This is a great trick if you don't feel confident in your decorating shelves ability OR if you just love what you have but want to switch a couple pieces out.

This might be a weird quirk, being an interior designer, but once I find a formula for my shelves that work, I don't change them up much! What about you?

I got a couple white mini pumpkins and set them in row on our mantel. I love how cute this is!

I switched out the sign on the shelf for my gather sign, which feels more "fall" to me :) I also got out the mercury glass pumpkin I've had for years and my little white and gold pumpkins. I used all the same stuff I've had for years, but it feels different since we're in a different space. Kinda fun!

I love this sweet little plant in a cloche my friend got me as a house warming gift!
  See how I made these DIY white and gold pumpkins here.

On the other side I mirrored the mercury glass pumpkin with the owl, swapped out my white candlesticks for brass ones, added a recycled glass pumpkin (so cute, on sale now!) with a tea light in it and placed a white, switched out our wedding album for a painting with some color, and placed a gold pumpkin on the bottom shelf as a finishing touch.

Oh, and this is one of my favorite fall candles!!

You may notice we finally put the knobs on our cabinets!! The shape reminds me so much of our entry and kitchen light, I thought it was perfect. And the glass gives it that vintage feel I love so much.

Looking back at the front door, this is what you see. (I don't love that you see the back of our couch when you walk in, but it worked the best for the TV and couch placement ;))

Our pretty new pillows for fall are giving me all the feels. I always go a little darker in the fall for a cozier feeling!
lumbar pillow / seaglass pillow was custom / navy pillow

Still obsessed with this tassel pillow and still so happy that Lincoln hasn't touched them yet ;)

Our entry table is styled with some books, our record player, a lovely blue lamp (HomeGoods) and a vase from a friend (love!) with some fall cotton branches in it. I finished our gallery wall this summer and love how it turned out. I'm thinking of changing out a couple of the wedding photos for more recent pictures. What do you think?

PS. Have you tried this Trader Joe's pumpkin candle? So good!

That's it! I didn't do much other fall decorating in other rooms, but you can bet I will for Christmas! If you missed our fall porch, you can see that here.

Have you done any fall decorating?

Have a great Wednesday!

Our Fall Porch 2019

I can't believe I'm sharing our fall porch already! I know, I IS October. It just feels so soon still. Last week I went to Trader Joe's with my friend and we picked out pumpkins (we had plans to go to a pumpkin patch but it was down pouring that day, so...Plan B!) 

I knew I wanted to do muted colors, just like I do inside my house, and then pop it with a couple mums. We headed to the nursery after we grabbed our pumpkins and I picked up these peachy sorbet colored mums and the berry pink ones. The center of the peachy orange ones are actually the same color as the pink mums, so it ties in nicely! To finish it off, I picked up a new door mat, on sale at Hobby Lobby for $10. The whole porch was done for around $60! But goodness, pumpkins are not cheap ;) Here's a look!

I planted a little mum plant in my container on the porch next to the fern that's growing like crazy (I'll have to take this out once it dies from the cold, it's an annual. I think I'll replace with something that will stay green all winter, if I can find something.)

Here's a side note question for you: I've never loved our brown front door and I'd love to paint it-- I'm just not sure what color. The shutters and that trim around the door on the front of the house is a dusty navy color. Our siding on the side of the house and back is all the same blue. I think doing it the same color would be too much of the same blue, but I'm considering a lighter blue. What are your thoughts?! 

Back to fall: have you decorated your porch yet?

Happy Wednesday!
