lots of lovely » fashion. lifestyle. home.

Can I just be raw for a moment? Sometimes I get a little stuck creatively. There’s days and weeks where my mind is just busting (not sure how proper that term is, but you get what I mean) with ideas and then there’s days…weeks…maybe even a month where I just don’t feel inspired or motivated to come up with something new around here. BUT last night, I went to the grand opening of the #sugarandclothcolorwall, met some new bloggers in the Houston area, took pictures in front of the cutest. wall. ever. and now I feel so ready to just start moving and get going? Has that ever happened to you? We’ll just chalk it up to an “artist’s block” and say that I’m thankful that each new day brings new promise and new opportunities. Cheers, and be kind everyone.

Oh, and if you’re a Houston local or your making a visit in the near future, go check out this Sugar and Cloth wall. Its a photo op MUST.

When you walk into the holy land of Target and see a fellow blogger as the headline name of the latest “featured” designer, you absolutely make the time to stop and shop (as if you need an excuse). The ladies over at Who What Wear created a fabulous line for the modern working woman; someone who needs to look professional during the day but can then ditch the cardigan for a quick change into something more suited for happy hour with the girls. Prints + basics make this collection an easy one to incorporate into your wardrobe. Hope you enjoy!

For my birthday, I told my husband that I didn’t want him to buy me anything and instead I wanted him to build me a mudroom storage area and a wooden tray for the bathtub. As of yesterday (which was Valentine’s Day…a month after my birthday but I’m definitely not complaining!) he completed both projects and I couldn’t be more excited to share his handiwork with you. I showed him a photo for inspiration and this beauty was the result. Hope you enjoy! Now I’m off to take a bubble bath and use my pretty tray for the first time!
