BLACK FRIDAY DEALS {Home Edition}

Here are a few of the sales on furniture and home decor that I don’t think you should miss!

fullsizerender-11

World Market has 25% off ALL FURNITURE! As you know, I have several pieces from World Market in my home. I LUV their affordable prices, and I always shop when they do their 25% off because then the prices are even MORE spectacular, obviously. Here are some of the items in my home, items I’ve purchased for clients and some of my favorites all around…

Serena & Lily is one of my favorite stores for furniture and home decor. Though the majority of their items are more of a splurge than some of the other places I typically share, I believe a splurge piece here and again can be majorly impactful to a space. For instance, you could pair an IKEA slipcover sofa, with the most amazing splurge coffee table, and instantly your room is a new level of chic. OR pair a gorgeous, high-quality sofa with a more affordable coffee table, same result. I don’t think every item has to be a splurge. I’m all about saving a few dollars. But I do think Serena & Lily has some wonderfully impactful items that you should definitely check out. Here are a few of my favorites…

Minted has 20% off holiday, gift card and art orders of $150 or more and 15% off sitewide. I LUV Minted art, because it’s an easy way to add instant style to any room, with little thought, really. Here are some of my favorite Minted art prints…

Use code BF2016 through 11:59 p.m. on Friday 11/25.

LexMod  is also a go-to furniture stop for me. Some of my dining chairs are from there. And as you’ve all heard me say a million times, my favorite mattress is from there (that I now have in 2 rooms!) Save 20% off storewide this weekend only! Hint: Perfect time to get that mattress! 🙂 Here are some of the items in my home and some of my favorites pieces they carry…

Pottery Barn has 25% off all bedding, plus free shipping! They also have some Black Friday deals, with sales up to 50% off! So check them out!

Wayfair also has a ton of Black Friday deals, as does Overstock, and you can’t ever forget Target! If you want to see some of the items I have in my own home from these sites, you can follow a lot of links through the photos in my Instagram! Or click the “Shop the Feed” links on the side of the blog.

I know there are tons of deals out there, but hopefully this helps narrow it down for you. Happy Shopping!

A Calm, Eclectic Guest Bedroom

While I was gone in Minneapolis for the Cambria Quartz Blogger’s Summit, I was so thankful to have our “Grandma entourage” help take care of the kids and hold down the fort. Since all of our family lives locally, it’s not often we put our guest bedroom to good use. But when we need it, we have a space that is kind of eclectic, calming and definitely comfortable for our guests.

fullsizerender-9 img_9619

I thought I’d share with you guys some of the items in our guest bedroom. I found the canvas art that is over the bed on Clearance for under $30 at Homegoods! I love to go to Homegoods when looking for wall decor and art, as you can usually find it for a fraction of the price of other stores. The navy pillows are also Homegoods, but here are some of the other items in this room:

I also made the most of this space by adding a desk and creating a little office space for myself, so the room serves as both a guest space AND an office space. This desk is my absolute favorite. It’s a substantial size, neutral (so I can always move it to a different space if I need to) and I LUV how the sides extend, if I need a little extra work space. The brass table lamp is also Homegoods, but I’ve linked similar options. Finally, the art was custom-made for me by my good friend Aedriel, but you can purchase some of her amazing work with the links I’ve posted below.

If you have any other questions about any of the items in this space, let me know! Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Patchin’

Today we went pumpkin picking and painted/carved our pumpkins. I can’t believe I’ve been picking pumpkins with my handsome hubs for 15 years!? Even though he and I end up usually doing most of the carving, sharing these traditions with our kids is so important to me. I thought I’d share a look inside a special day for us…

dsc_0048

We started at a pumpkin patch close to our house but couldn’t seem to find just the right ones. Though the hunt is half the fun, right?

dsc_0064

So we headed to the second patch, where we found just the right ones…

dsc_0085

This patch had some “spookies” (as we call them) and my oldest was less than stoked. Last year, my little guy was also petrified of anything spooky. But a couple weeks ago, I took him on a long walk to check out the decorations in my neighborhood during the day. Apparently seeing them in the light (and touching them and lifting their drapes to see they were made of plastic and batteries) really helped him conquer his fears. Emerson wanted nothing to do with them still, but Corbin hopped right up and said, “See Sissy! They’re just pretend!”

dsc_0090dsc_0092dsc_0091

First Corbin hunted for his perfect pumpkin…

He said, “You like the white ones, Mommy.” Yup. 😉

dsc_0105

He found his pretty quickly…

Em, on the other hand, likes to really take her time.

She thought she’d decided on a white one…

But then she changed her mind.

Here we are with the winners…

Links to me and Em’s matching outfits (FYI: You can get both of our dresses for around $30 total!)…

Thanks for following along with us! I rarely share our personal stories on here, but I’m trying to make a point to change that every once in a while. Hope you enjoyed… 🙂

Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale… Up to 75% OFF!

LUV a good handbag??? I’m letting you in on one of my little secrets…

img_0373

Rebecca Minkoff is one of my favorite designers. I LUV how her designs are funky, yet sophisticated. Classic, yet edgy. They tend to be a combination of styles, which pretty much sums me up. Soooo… Rebecca designs some of my go-to bags. I typically wait for this sale to stock up on my bags for the season. You can literally save up to 75% off your favorite styles! I’m linking some of the ones I have, some of the ones in my cart for this season’s sale and some of my favorites. But I’ll tell you this, at these prices, they sell out QUICK! So don’t wait too long if you have your eye on something.

Happy Shopping, y’all!

The Event that Made Headlines, the Perfect Color for Fall, & OTK Boots for All Budgets

J and I had the opportunity to go see Amy Schumer Live this past Sunday. Did you see the headlines?? Oh. My Gah. I’ll spare you the details, because I try to avoid political banter on public forums (which is apparently not the case for Amy). But go ahead and google “Amy Schumer Tampa Show” if you want to hear about it. I promise I won’t discuss further! lol Anywho… I was LUV’ing the crisp weather and finally a chance to wear my over-the-knee boots. And I’m all about a good knit dress. If it’s cozy- it’s for me. You know fall has arrived when you’re seeing shades of merlot and burgundy. It’s right on trend, and I think it’s a color that works for all hair and skin tones!

Some of the options I’m LUV’ing in this wine tone:

I shared about these boots on my Instagram. They’re under $50 and a must-have for fall. I’ve linked them and some of my favorite OTK boots for all budgets:

And here are some of the other items I’m wearing:

Lastly, I wanted to mention my sunglasses for y’all real quick. If you follow my Insta closely, you’ve probably heard me say it before, but I’m obsessed with this subscription service. These sunglasses retail for around $300 (and I’ve linked them to purchase above, if you’d like). OR you can head to www.ditto.com and use code “LUVBEC” at checkout and rent them FREE for one entire month! I’ve tried oogles of subscription services, and few have stuck. But this one… it’s a goodie. You’re welcome. 😉

Have a good one, y’all!

A Pink Midi… A Style Fit for Any Occasion.

I wore this skirt in my family photos last fall, and I’ve received countless questions about it since. Lucky for you, it’s still available! If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a good midi/skater skirt. I think it’s the perfect item for when you’re having professional and/or family photos taken, as it’s timeless, stylish and sure to make a statement. It’s also a great staple to have in your closet for every season. For instance, this pink midi is under $30 and can be paired with a fitted tank or crop top for spring/summer and then add a turtleneck or a blouse and leather jacket for fall/winter. You can basically style this piece 100 different ways and enjoy it all year long.

img_9918

img_3310

Some of my favorite midis…

I LUV how many ways you can style this skirt by changing the top. Add a turtleneck or simple blouse for a classic style, a crop top for a little edge, or tuck in (or tie up) a plaid button-up for a more casual, preppy style. Here are a few items you could pair with your midi(s):

 

If you were wondering, the shoes are the splurge of this look… Like I always say, I’m all about affordable style… with the occasional/appropriate splurge. Red bottoms… they’re mine. 😉

Hope you enjoyed! What is your favorite style statement piece? I’d LUV to hear (maybe you’ll give me an idea for this year’s family photos!) 🙂

My Favorite Spot for Denim & Fall Boots and BUY MORE, SAVE MORE…

Last night, the hubs and I went to Busch Gardens for a fun little date night. We got to ride roller coasters and act like big kids, sans the little kids. We got a tour of the Howl-O-Scream festivities before the park opened officially for the evening and got a little spooked in the haunted houses. (Did you follow along on my Instagram Stories?!)

img_9993

I wanted to wear something that was both cute and comfortable and wear shoes that I could walk the park in without worrying about missing out on the fun because of boot-induced blisters (Ladies, you know exactly what I’m talking about!) I wore these boots for the first time, and didn’t get one blister!!! They were super comfortable, and I’m so excited about them for fall! They’re the perfect shade of brown and will go with almost anything! (I love the contrast of mixing black with brown.) The boots are currently 25%, and it’s BUY MORE, SAVE MORE until Monday, so act fast, if you’re interested! PS- They also come in black. I might need those, too. 😉

One of the questions I get most frequently, as it pertains to fashion, is where is my favorite place to buy denim. Though I have a couple favorite styles from other places, I have one main go-to store for amazing, affordable denim. I recently bought these black, stretch jeggings and I’ll probably be wearing them more often than socially acceptable… I LUV the sizing here bc it’s not like other juniors’ style stores/departments where you have to size way up and then you’re left feeling like… “I’m size what?!” (Usually at that point, I put them back for vanity’s sake.) In my experience with their denim, you can usually order your true size, without fuss.

Here are several other styles that I own and absolutely LUV! Again, right now it’s buy more save more, and denim is buy one, get one 50% off so it’s a great time to stock up for fall!

They also have tons of fabulous boots, so it was close to impossible to narrow it down to one. But here are some other amazing styles I’m LUV’ing, if you’re in the market for some new boots!

Finally, I added a little western belt, to finish the look. Western belts are totally on trend this fall and such a great way to complete a denim look or throw over a dress, skirt or romper. (See how I wore a thicker version over a romper for a concert I recently went to in this Instagram post.)

Here are a few options of Western belts for you…

Hope you enjoyed this post! I’d LUV to hear what topics you’re enjoying on here and what you’d like to see more of. Please feel free to comment with any questions or suggestions below!

Gold & Marble & Fall-Decor, Oh My!

What I’m currently LUV’ing…

Target‘s fall “Harvest” collection. Most specifically, I’m swooning over their gold utensil collection. Because I happen to stalk the store, I bought the measuring cups in store, but then I kept seeing some of my other favorite home bloggers posting about the entire collection (that I didn’t see in MY local store), and I had to have more (I mean, come on, at that price who wouldn’t?!) Since they’ve hit the shelves, they’ve been selling out like hot pumpkin pancakes, so here’s my tip if you want them too… Click on the links below to shop my favorite items and either have them shipped to your house free (when you’re a Red Card holder) or “add them to your cart” with free in-store pickup to ensure you don’t have to go on a wild goose chase to find them!

And, just in case you’re as obsessed with fall decor as I am, here are some of my other favorite items from Target’s fall collection:

Hope I don’t send you into too much of a Target oblivion. Maybe if you order online or do in-store pickup, you can save your wallet by not walking the actual store. Maybe… 😉

An Easy, Simple Fall Centerpiece

As a minimalist, I don’t like a lot on my table for everyday decor. So I rarely have a full tablescape, unless it’s a very special occasion. Here’s how I made an easy, simple centerpiece for fall for my dining room table decor…

The base is my large Dough Bowl, which is always the centerpiece for my table, and my neutral linen Table Runner, which I use pretty much year-round as well. I fill the dough bowl with assorted items, based on the season- flowers, moss, seasonal foliage, etc.

For example- here’s what it looks like in the spring:

I went to the dollar store and bought a $1 cheesecloth and then swung by my local Home Depot and picked up 4 medium sized white pumpkins. And voila…

I even threw in a couple extra small, decorative pumpkins I had for Halloween.

Come November, I’ll remove the polka dot pumpkins and probably add some cornucopia and an assortment of rich orange and yellows.

Though the dough bowl was an initial investment, I LUV how versatile it is and how I can use it for all of the holidays. Stay tuned to see how it changes in the coming months… 😉
