Fruity Florals

So recently I've come across some very interesting floral arrangements that incorporate fruit. Yes, you read that correctly... fruit. It's not something that instantly comes to one's mind when picturing a floral arrangement, but let me tell you; I'm loving it.

Fruits such as lemons, limes, and oranges are perfect for adding a colorful twist to almost any arrangement. Whether used whole, or cut into slices, their bold, bright colors instantly add excitement, fun, and a bit of whimsy.

Mason Jar Decorating

Who knew that mason jars could be so great for decorating? I do now!

Create a mason jar vase and fill it with flowers for a beautiful yet casual arrangement. Whether it's the focal point of your kitchen counter or the centerpieces for a laid-back outdoor wedding, I promise they'll be perfect.

Add a little mason-jar-beach to your life (my personal fave). Fill a mason jar with sand or sea glass and top it off with a tea light - and "voila" instant beachy home decor. Line them up on your mantel or use them as accents for a party. Don't love the beachy feel as much as I do? Create reusable drink glasses that have a vintage-country feel. Or fill 'em up with branches, pebbles, or acorns for a natural look.

Beachy Blues

If there's one thing you need to know about me, it's that there's probably no better word to describe my style than "beachy". Anything from a throw pillow to a piece of furniture to an outfit, it's all just better when it's got a beachy feel (if I do say so myself).

I am instantly drawn to the calm colors, lived-in look, and casual feel that can make any room feel like home. So, needless to say, I nearly had to catch my breath when I came across these perfectly beachy bedrooms. Someday (hopefully sooner rather than later) my bedroom will be as beautiful as these.

Summer Style

So, being that it's that lovely time of year where we can enjoy sunny summer days and warm summer nights, I wanted to share the perfect summer evening outfit. Let's face it, white pants are great, but they're even better during the summer. Top them off with a casual chambray button down, or spice them up with a bright sweater and you'll be good to go!
