She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: A 'La Mode

We're hearing from my sweet and spunky friend Shelli, who blogs over at A 'La Mode, today! 
I'm sure you've seen her baby girl's adorably chic nursery floating around blogland.  We clicked a few months back and have since bonded (:  I so admire Shel's seriously stylish home and her ability to put things together so well. She's also the queen at finding good deals! Here she goes...

Hi Ya'll!  I'm Shelli from a'la mode and am so giddy to be sharing my loves and love me nots here today at sweet Michaela's blog!  

She Loves Me:

1.  Sun hats!  Okay, so I think I look pretty ridiculous in mine, but my little hot mess, K, looks pretty stinking cute in hers!


I know I am biased, but I could just eat her up with a spoon!

2.  A settee! I am obsessed with them.  I have two in my home.  I love how versatile they can be in your home.  Such a tailored, chic addition to any space.

Pull one up to the breakfast table, mixed seating is so fun!
Use the settee as a fun way to add a bolder print to the space- I chose a blue chevron to add color to my neutral breakfast nook.

A neutral settee in a casual flax linen is housed in our guest room as an alternative to a club chair.

3.  Sunglasses!  I can't get enough.  My favorite pairs are from Oliver Peoples. Oh, and can often be found on top of my head when I think I have misplaced them.  

Like mommy

Like daughter

4.  Lululemon athletica.  I could seriously live in the groove pant (I kinda do).  I have a bajillion pair because they are comfortable and make your butt look good.  Add one of their tanks and jacket and you even look cute while you run errands.



She Loves Me Not:

1.  Socks.  Although functional I realize, I just don't like the look of them.  If I am wearing tennies, I wear the 'no see' socks, the REALLY low rise style that you don't see.  I think it is more feminine to see your ankles.  I know, I'm kinda weird.

2.  Mayonaise.  It looks yucky.  I can't get past it.

3.  Running.  I wish I was a runner.  I've tried! I stink at it.  The only thing I run is my mouth.

oh, and I look just like her.  I Do wish.

4.  High waisted bikinis.  So.  Not.  Flattering.

Thanks for letting me participate in your fun series Michaela!
xoxo, Shelli

  7. Sun hats are awesome! My mom had the most ridiculous ones for my brother and me when we went to the beach so she could spot us from afar! I had a tasteful teal-and-magenta stripe and my brother had leopard print!

  8. I love that chevron print settee! They seem like such cozy places to sit, read a book, and sip a cup of coffee or tea.

    I'm not feeling the high waisted bikini bottoms either... yuck!

    Happy Wednesday!
