Balmain Blazer Lookalike

Oct 15, 2019

One of your favorite items from my fall home tour wasn't even home decor. It was my black Balmain lookalike blazer! I loved it so much that I bought it in white too. It also comes in a pink, light blue and red. I find that it runs exactly one size small and you will see many reviews say the same. The quality is amazingly good too. At under $60 it's a great find!

I wore the white today to a client meeting. I paired it with a black bodysuit, black jeans, and my favorite flats. I'd rather wear heels, but flats are typically what I wear when working. 

The Prada tote bag is also what I usually take with me to client meetings because it can hold so much-files, measuring tape, and fabric samples. The YSL bag in the second photo is what I carry on a daily basis because it can be a shoulder and crossbody bag. No need to switch bags! My Ferragamo pearl belt is no longer available, but the black and gold one is a classic.

Here is the same blazer in black that was so popular in my fall home tour. More details about this look is in the link.

World Market is having a great friends and family sale with 30% off almost everything! I rounded up my favorite dining room furniture picks since the holidays are upon us. I also mocked them up so you can see how they look in a room, and then styled them with my favorite accessories.

Fall Home Tour 2019

Oct 6, 2019

Happy Fall! My fall home tour is a bit late this year, but so is the fall weather! We are getting our first cold front tomorrow, and I cannot wait to have coffee on the porch in the morning to enjoy it. There are so many things on our fall bucket list-local festivals, a haunted corn maze, and s'mores around the fire pit. Pumpkin patches and trick-or-treating are out this year since the boys are getting older, but there is still plenty for us to do as a family!

I am in love with these new fall wreaths! They were a semi-DIY. I already had one dried magnolia wreath from last year. It wasn't my favorite because it was so flat and plain. I decided to add real elements like feathers and dried florals with a hot glue gun hoping it would perk it up. It did! I bought everything I needed from Hobby Lobby including the green and brown ribbon. 

I later added the grapevine garland and lights. I'm not sure if I'm going to add any Halloween decor to  it. We'll see if the kids ask for it!

On to the foyer, which is my favorite this year! I was inspired by these pretty, lavender mums. I knew they would look great paired with white pumpkins somewhere inside or outside the house.

I'll be honest, I just used what I had already on hand for this year's table. All I added was this Greek key ribbon to tie the napkins. It's a great inexpensive alternative to napkin rings.

I carried the peach and white theme from the living room to the kitchen since they are so open to each other.

It was important to decorate the pool area again this year because Dylan and his girlfriend took homecoming photos out here yesterday.

Can you believe this is the same little boy from when I first started blogging? He was only 10 back then and now he's 17! I would be sad, but he's grown into such a handsome, great kid that I can't be anything but proud.

I hope you enjoyed my fall tour!
