friday favorites


1. We spotted this amazing room makeover by Octavia Dickinson, and also adore this home by CeCe Barfield Thompson! (We found similar dressers to the one pictured above here and here!)

2. Did you see the amazing new collaboration of Liberty for Anthropologie?! We'd gladly take one of each please, but if we had to choose, it would be this, this and this! (And don't miss their extra 30% off sale...snag a beautiful summer dress, and for holiday parties this would be so cute!)

3. A girl can dream right? This is seriously at the top of our wish list (and this or this is a close second)!

4. We're fans of this collection at Rejuvenation, and this and this are both new...we love the sleek, elegant look. Also excited they're now carrying this iconic design!  

5. More "pops" of green we're loving after Monday's "modern preppy" favorites...these beauties, this cheery find, and this classic! Green is definitely having a moment

6. This line at Madewell keeps selling out and we can see why...the feminine details on this and this are so pretty!  

7. A few Amazon picks that make us super happy...this looks like it costs a lot but doesn't, these come in so many pretty colors, and this brightens up our work day! 

8. This is a "steal" that will surely get a ton of's perfect paired with this!  

9. Everyone here at Pencil & Paper Co. may end up with this because we adore it! We're also swooning over this whole look. And, it's so fun to see the Nashville brand Rank & Sugar carried by J Crew! Loving the military-inspired trend.

10. Such a sweet dress to spend the last days of summer in! This one is so adorable too! 


our "new favorites" at serena & lily

So many brand new pieces we've been eyeing at Serena & Lily! Yesterday we gave you a peek at a few in our "modern preppy" post, and today we're rounding up more of our "new favorites!" We're seeing so many great textures...rattan, raffia, grasscloth, rope, and tassels. The raffia mirror above even has brass inlay at the corners for a super luxe feel. And you can never have too many baskets, don't you agree?! (We use them for storage, plants, and even in bathrooms!) The herringbone pattern on these adds a graphic pop we love. Another new "go-to" for us is the brass and white Edwards many of you have asked about it and pinned it! Shop all of our "new favorites" at Serena & Lily below, and more rattan "favorite finds" here!   

"grown up bed" with world market

Our son Oden turns 12 this week, and at the tippy top of his birthday wish list was to have a "grown up bed." Luckily, our friends at World Market offered to partner with us to make Oden's birthday wish come true! The Caiden Upholstered Bed was the perfect choice—it's a classic style that will easily transition through his teen years. World Market has always been one of our go-tos for outdoor furniture, rugs, and kitchen accessories, and we are excited to find this great assortment of beds.  There are a ton to choose from, and ours was super easy to put together. We're so happy with the quality and love how it looks in the room! 

We refreshed Oden's room by clearing out the kid stuff but keeping our vintage treasures and letting the new "grown up bed" be the hero of the room. The industrial task lamp and bright storage chest are the perfect touch of whimsy when paired with this more sophisticated bed. Shop our favorite World Market beds and headboards below!

monday mood: modern preppy

Hard to believe summer is over and the kids are headed back to school! That's got us thinking about cooler weather ahead and taking advantage of all the AMAZING beginning of season sales. On vacation we devoured the book "Classic Style", and we just stumbled on these amazing looks from Frances much fall inspiration! We're loving a classic red, white, and blue palette with a pop of olive for a "modern preppy" look. And can we talk about those embellishments...pom poms, piping, and monogramming?! Pair a bold lip with classic stripes, add a trench (a must-own wardrobe staple!) and a fun pair of shoes, and you're good to go. We've rounded up our favorites below to get the "modern preppy" look we're loving, and more of our "fashion favorites" here!
