Happy Friday, y’all! We’re coming off a super productive and inspiring trip to NYC where we kicked off our first ever Creative Conversations brunch (more details to come soon on future events), met so many inspiring women, and helped kick off the Home Edit’s book tour at OKL’s beautiful Soho store! We are so excited to jump into the weekend with some of our favorite finds of the week!

  1. In case you missed our recent blog post, our FAVORITE design store is hosting a “Spring Design Event Sale!” They’re offering 20% off EVERYTHING including our woven denim rug in our bedroom and the natural jute border rug in our kitchen! Check out our must-have pieces here!

  2. We shared some exciting news this week - the release of our “Howdy” tote because you asked for more totes and let’s be honest, we really, really love y’all! This new slightly larger size is perfect for work, the gym, or a fun weekend getaways!

  3. Speaking of vacations, in case you missed it we shared some of our favorite Getaway pieces on our website. We are swooning over this Tory Burch gingham swimsuit while pairing it with these statement earrings. And you know we can’t travel without this carry-on set. Don’t mind us while we book our next flight…

  4. Now, that it’s officially spring our beauty routine is changing up a bit. We can’t live without our favorite highlighter and our go-to nail color (perfect for the season). We’re also loving this beachy tinted moisturizer while using this balancing oil underneath for the perfect springtime glow.

  5. Sunshine means only one thing… sunglass season! We are crushing on this heart-shaped pair, this adorable Gucci pair, and this Alexander McQueen steal for under $100!

  6. We also scheming a little patio upgrade with this pretty spring weather among us! You can catch us lounging in this sling chair while under this old-school pagoda-style umbrella (20% off NOW)… you may even catch us in snoozing on this outdoor sectional! We’re also eyeing this hanging rattan chair and these lovely wicker club chairs.

  7. We plan on showing off our favorite toe color in these raffia slide sandals, these bow-embellished slides, and these braided sunny slides. There are just too many good things that come with spring! Did we mention the Old Navy sandals we can’t get enough of are also on sale again for ONLY $10? Yay!

  8. Wanting to add a pop of color to your space? We teamed up with One Kings Lane to create color studies for any space! These vibrant colors can be purchased separately, mixed and matched, or bought all together.

  9. We’re always on the hunt for the perfect straw handbag. Lucky for you we’re sharing a few of our favorites including this basket bag, this must-have wicker frame bag, and this braided shoulder bag. So many of our favorite handbags are on sale too like this adorable poolside bag (under $100)!

  10. We are too excited and proud of our dear friends from The Home Edit on their book launch! With spring comes spring cleaning and we can’t wait to get to work with the help of this book. Whether you live in an urban studio or a suburban four bedroom, this will completely transform the way you live! Many of you asked for details on the outfit from the book launch- so, here you go: we love this darling dragon print silk dress paired with our go-to cap-toe shoes.

Serena & Lily is truly one of our favorite sources for classic, great design at reasonable price points. Head on over to their website because this is sale not to be missed!

We recently received so many questions about the woven denim rug in our bedroom and we can’t say enough about the incredible quality and palette of tonal blues and white (our favorites) - snap it up while it’s 20% off! Speaking of pieces in our home… the natural jute border rug in our kitchen is a deal right now! Also on sale is this raffia console table (as seen in the new HGTV magazine). And since you know we can’t resist a great rattan piece we think you should take a peek at these darling side chairs, this woven bench (perfect for any entryway), and this rattan sconce (which would be so sweet over bedside tables or in a powder room).

Want to see what we’re eyeing? You know we love a crisp cotton sheet set on any bed and think these would look perfect against a patterned headboard. We also adore this colorful Kayce Hughes piece - you can browse all of her art here!

Happy spring and shopping, y’all!

Or, were you swooning over the sweet pink nursery? Here’s the orange striped rug, the white spindle crib, the pink chaise lounge (One Kings Lane is currently offering 20% off furniture!!!), the raffia nightstand, and the darling animal photographs!

2. We’re packing our bags for a business trip to New York City and couldn’t be more excited to be immersed in the energy, attend events, and (fingers crossed) sneak in a little shopping! Want a peek at what’s inside our luggage? Our favorite pajamas (on major sale), our go-to toiletry case, and this Aerin rollerball fragrance (the perfect way to travel with a scent). Curious about our favorite spots to stay? We adore The Marlton, The Standard, The Maritime, and 11 Howard. Have any favorite places we should hit while we’re in NYC? We’d LOVE to hear via DM on Instagram!

3. From New York City we’re heading straight to Los Angeles to celebrate Spring Break! We can’t wait for the sunshine, warm weather, and a little rest and relaxation. When in LA, our go-to lodging spots are Sunset Tower, The Beverly Hills Hotel, and Chateau Marmot - we love them all! We’ve been eyeing this bold kaftan, this vibrant taffeta ball skirt (swoon), and this silk square print dress - we’re thinking we may need to “add to cart” in time for our trip!

4. We didn’t think it was possible, but we’ve been gravitating towards all things in a bold red hue even more than usual! How sweet is this floral dress (under $40), this soft Italian leather bag, this square neck one piece and these floral chandelier earrings? And because we’re all about the mix… check out this score and this splurge!

5. There’s just something about a classic white dress that we can’t resist! Take a peek at this sweet eyelet A-line dress by one of our very favorites, Draper James, this scalloped shirtdress by Tory Burch, this midi eyelet dress from J.Crew, and this cotton voile splurge! All would be a great investment for any wardrobe!

6. Speaking of adding to your wardrobe… have you checked out Draper James recently? We’re crushing hard on this floral lace midi, this swiss dot ruffle dress, and this navy cocktail dress. This floral linen wrap dress is brand new and is at the tippy top of our wishlist!

7. We are all about statement earrings this spring! Have you checked out these beaded shell earrings (they’re more than 70% off), these rainbow beaded hoops (under $30), and these azure bauble hoops? How perfect would these raffia earrings be for a fun getaway? We also think we need these red beauties and this tortoise drop pair.

8. You know we can’t resist a fun shoe! We adore these raffia slides, these pointed toe brocade flats, these ankle strap ballet flats in Liberty floral, and these colorful sandal slides. How fun are these bow suede shoes in green? Our go-to lately has been this pair of cap toe heels!

Happy Tuesday, y’all! We are so flattered by all the compliments and kind messages we recently received about our kitchen! Since we were asked so many questions about our table, plates, runners, and art we thought we’d do a roundup of all our kitchen elements for you to snap up for yourself!

We love the way beautiful brass hardware can dress up any kitchen! Here’s the link to purchase our modern brass pulls. Have you checked out Schoolhouse? It’s one our favorite sources for hardware, lighting, fans and so much more! We also love a streamlined brass faucet - check out this wall mount option and this polished brass faucet from The Home Depot and this brass faucet option from another one of our favorite sources, Rejuvenation.

Looking purchase something similar to our barstools? We’re CRUSHING on this rattan option, this white rattan option, and this curved silhouette barstool. Still searching for more seating options? We adore these wishbone mid-century chairs from The Home Depot.

Open brass shelves in a kitchen is our go-to because it lets us display our favorite plates and kitchen curiosities! Were you looking to purchase these white stacking plates? Great news - they’re currently on sale along with the matching salad plates and bowls! We think they look so clean against a timeless white subway tile backsplash.

You know we have an affinity for traditional blue and white pieces and love the juxtaposition they provide against our sleek, modern kitchen. We’ve rounded up some vintage treasures from Etsy for you (in very limited quantities so hurry and snap them up)! Check out this vintage Chinese porcelain vase, this Chinoiserie porcelain ginger jar, and this Wedgwood planter.

And last, but not least, the main focal point of our kitchen… the La Cornue stove - an appliance that's function is as spectacular as its form! This stunning stove truly pulls the entire space together with its mix of brass and stainless accents. And we’ll let you in on the best refrigerator secret ever - we found the budget friendly twin to the coveted Subzero model (purchase this refrigerator, this freezer, and trim kit)!

You can always DM us on Instagram if you have questions on other kitchen items!
