Drape + Dapper »

Why hello!  It’s been waaay too long since our last post and we thought we’d bring you a little holiday cheer with some festive looks from our friends at The Revival Boutique.  We love their mix of affordable pieces that can be styled beyond the holiday season.  Add some sparkle with sequins +  fun accessories or go a little boho-glam with fringe + fur!  They have so many great holiday options, whether casual or dressy with lots of new arrivals . So make sure to swing by The Revival this season to get styled (or shop online)!   

Camel colored faux suede fringe skirt with a classic black sweater is casual + glam.

Celebrate in style with a classic gold sequined dress. We love this slip style paired with a fun cropped  jacket for coverage + a bit of edge.  And who wouldn’t want a compass necklace!

The best of both worlds fringe + sequins.

B green soloWe’re still mad for midi-skirts and this emerald one does not disappoint.  Such a classic combo that can be styled year round.

A winter romper?  Yep, paired with tights, over-the-knee boots and some fur, keeps it cozy!

Red is definitely the ‘it’ color of the season.  We dig the modest crop-top style with pencil skirt and leopard pumps.  Turquoise is always a fun + unexpected addition.

 Don’t forget to add warm layers, they have tons of cute coat options to keep you trendy + toasty!

Well, we completely left you hanging for kids back to school stuff…….whoops! Don’t dismay, we may not have your kids covered but we’ve got you covered 🙂  School time =  you time.

Although we’re currently in a heat wave, that hasn’t stopped us from thinking about some new fall kicks…boots to be specific.  There are so many styles to choose from – gah!  One of the biggest trends we’re seeing is the return of ankle booties but decked out with fringe, buckles, rivets (you name it) and in a pointier toe style.  We love this length with rolled boyfriend jeans and even skirts and dresses.  The more dressed-up, rocker-chic version of these anklets in black have a euro-vibe, especially if you dare to pair with some leather pants.  ‘That 70’s style’  is influencing a lot this season.  Everything  suede, chunky heels, fringe and especially the the over-the-knee styles.  AND don’t forget about the rainy part of fall, some shortie rain boots in lace-up and combat styles will keep you dry.

Hello friends!  Summer is flying by and we may be enjoying ourselves a little too much (thus the lack of blog activity).  We recently took at road trip to the Wisconsin peninsula, known as Door County, to help design and style an outdoor space at our friend’s lake house.  We collaborated with the talented group at Branching out and Co to help style this outdoor oasis and of course invited some extras to break in this serene little space. 

It was a fun + challenging project putting the pieces together and the planning started back in February (see patio layout at end of post here).  The patio space is actually a balcony on the 2nd level connected to the indoor living area.  Our friend wanted a functional space for entertaining + relaxing.  Since the patio is long and narrow, we decided on two separate seating areas to maximize the flow without sacrificing the breathtaking views.

Style, comfort and quality were priority when selecting the outdoor furniture, along with items that were low maintenance.  The seating pieces are Brown Jordan found exclusively at The Home Depot and they go together effortlessly to create a casual, coastal-chic look.  We also love the fact that pieces are sold individually; that allowed us to really customize the space and create an eclectic look . The all-weather woven loveseats are part of the Northshore Collection and the lounge chairs are from the Form Collection.  All of the Brown Jordan collections found at The Home Depot come in a variety of Sunbrella fabric choices, making it easier than ever to create a unique look!  We then added some textural accent pieces and budget-friendly pops of color with orange side tables and colorful toss pillows to tie everything together.   As you can see below, the space is tester-approved!

Hope you’re enjoying the great outdoors and if you’re still in the market for outdoor furniture – don’t delay! There are lots of deals going on now – especially online.
