Friday Link Love

Friday, August 28, 2015

This has been the best week for being outside and Mr. and I are looking forward to spending a large part of our weekend doing just that.  We met with a landscape designer this week to map out a plan for our front yard.  We had general ideas as well as overall garden styles we like, but wanted to make sure we were on the right track.  The 1 1/2 hour consultation was well worth it and now all we need is time and the winning lottery ticket.  We plan to break ground this weekend so stay tuned.  Have a great weekend friends!


Henry & Co Design - I love these cheerful colors!


My Domaine - Home Tour



Habitually Chic - Lovely Lake House



Coco + Kelly - Top 10 Removable Wall Papers


Damn Delicious - Shrimp Boil Foil Packets (brilliant!)

Now At Loft

If school must start and summer must end, then bring on the fall clothes.  While it's not quite cool enough to wear jackets there has been a hint of fall in the air the last couple of days and I'm beginning to get excited about fall's arrival.  I just received an email from Loft and took a peek at some of their fall/transitional pieces. The current deal is spend $50 in stores or online and receive a $25 cash card and lots of things are up to 50% off.  I like deals like this. 



Trench coats are a fall must and this one is nice because it doesn't have the belt.  The back has a flattering waist tab.  It also comes in navy which makes the color choice very difficult - love both!



Pencil skirts are a wardrobe staple and this length is so flattering.  By the way, I'm happy to see hem lines lengthen.  Comes in navy and red.



I love basics that have a little flair to them like this sweater.  The eyelet embroidery hem and neckline make is special while still being a basic.  The color is navy, but almost looks black in the image. Take an extra 50% now.



Lace tees are so versatile!  Could be worn with denim or a pencil skirt.  This one does require a cami and also comes in soft lilac.



I'm also thrilled that flairs are coming back and I've had luck with Loft denim. So I'll be trying these in the dark rinse for sure.

Happy shopping!
