Make Life Beautiful: Home + Style

It's all about style — in the home and in the closet.

I’m not a fashion blogger, but I love expressing personal style in home and fashion.

Every day is a cross between meetings in the office and spending time with my kids at home, so I like things that can be dressed up and down.

I love this blouse because it’s easy. It fits like a tee, but it’s got this beautiful embroidery that dresses it up. The pink flats are a no-brainer because they’re comfortable and subtly match with the embroidery in the top! I love these earrings with the embroidery and are unique but feminine. After I’m done with work I can run home and throw on a sweatshirt over these casual jeans.

A grand console like this one needed to be anchored by two large, textured table lamps and a mirror large enough for the wall. This console is full of storage opportunities, but we also used our Shaka Trays and Stripe Box to work as extra places for keys, lipsticks, etc. We layered this decorative magnifying glass and fresh florals to play with height and create dimension.

I’m so happy statement sleeves are a thing right now. They make this shirt exciting and a bit daring, but I’m still as comfortable as ever.

Fresh flowers and a decorative towel are a match made in heaven. The towel is convenient while serving as an extra accessory. I always keep a Canyon Crock and pretty soap handy. The Crock can be filled with greenery, utensils, or displayed alone.

I like to dress down the shirt with the perfect boyjeans and these comfortable espadrilles. The jeans have been my go-to lately, they seem to go with every outfit. I love how the espadrilles have a bit of a platform, giving me some extra height.

These baskets are the best because they’re so convenient for carrying things around or storing random objects around the house. (Let’s be real, they’re usually not full of beautiful flowers.)

I actually wore this outfit to the Design Bloggers Conference, and still can’t get enough of it. Black and white is a classic combo and the skinny jeans go perfectly with a billowy fit top! It’s glam and comfy. I swapped heels for flats this time, and chose cheetah because it’s totally a neutral right? These earrings are fun to wear when you want to feel fancy without the heels and dress.

A big window with plenty of light flooding in gives us the perfect opportunity to add dark, rich decor! These chairs are textured and rustic, tying in with the big wooden bowl on the table. Fresh produce contrasts beautifully against the ash color of the bowl, or leave it empty! The Morris Lantern brings some shine, and we used the Huck pillow for natural pattern. That beautiful vase on the table is coming to McGee & Co. soon!

  1. Eeek, I love your distressed blue jeans (as seen on Insta and here) but can’t seem to find the brand or link to the brand? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Everything is so cute!! Just curious, what type of fabric did you cover the bench cushion with?

  3. This is a great extension of your brand. I hope someone is tracking purchases from your links because you are probably driving sales (especially for Madewell). I’ve know I’ve bought several pieces because of your posts. So glad you are doing this. Now I don’t have to wait until Sunday…

  4. Gorgeous home! Can you tell me the dark paint color of the cabinets in what looks to be a mudroom?

  5. I love your decorating style, but your fashion sense is just as lovely—fresh and modern, yet casual. More posts like this, please!
