This trench coat is sooooo flattering on.

This cardigan looks so cute and cozy! Perfect for travel.

These slingback mules are so cute in person!

Loooooove the red version of this coat! So fun!

Need these in my life.

These jeans are one of my favorites – so comfy. Size up!

If I was in the market for a dining table that seats up to six, I would snag this table in a heartbeat! It’s such a good dupe for the much pricier, and unfortunately not discounted Anthropologie table I’ve had my eye on!

World Market is running a big sale on all their dining furniture right now. Before our cat destroyed them, we had these chairs and they are so so comfortable and a great value! I also loooove this dining set, for a more costal or traditional home! We have these plates and they’re super cute in person (and I haven’t had any of the issues with them that the reviewer talks about.)

Pottery Barn is still running their buy more, save more sale where you can get up to 30% off your order.

Happy shopping and I’ll see you next week! xo


My Favorite Affordable Neutral Area Rugs

Stuido mcgee great room design

The dreamy room above is designed by Studio Mcgee – check out the full tour of this house (legitimately my dream house) here. You can actually buy this rug in Studio Mcgee’s shop, but unfortunately it’s rather pricy – so I’ve compiled some similar rugs below to help your room achieve a similar feel for much less money.

If you have hardwood (or concrete) floors in your living room, you should have an area rug anchoring the space. There are very few exceptions to this. Seriously, look at all the living rooms you have pinned on Pinterest. I can almost guarantee you that they all have area rugs. Nothing anchors a space quite like a rug.

There are a few primary reasons people never get around to buying rugs. First of all, sizable rugs can be really expensive. But in my opinion (and I feel strongly about this), an affordable, lower-quality area rug that may not last you a lifetime but will last a few years is still much better than living with no rug at all.

Secondly, area rugs are a pretty big commitment when it comes to the design of your home, so people get nervous about that. That’s why all of the rugs I’ve rounded up today are really neutral and will fit in with most any design style. The colors are grey and beige and the patterns are subtle so they won’t clash with what you already have in your home.

So now that you’ve run out of excuses not to buy a rug, here are some of my affordable favorites. I can personally vouch for three of the rugs below because I have them in my home.

8×10 Area Rugs Under $400

Affordable rugs under $400

1. Nuloom Moroccan Trellis Ivory rug. All sizes here. I have this rug in our guest room / home office and it’s fantastic. It’s one of my favorite rooms to decorate because the rug’s pattern is so subtle and manages to compliment everything I put with it. One of the other cool things about this rug is that it comes in a large variety of sizes (even unusual ones) so it’s easy to find one that will work for your space. I used this exact rug in my friend Joani’s living room E-design, and she was able to order a size 8×8 which was the very specific size she needed to fit her space perfectly.

2. Nuloom Moroccan Trellis Grey rug. Size 8×10 here. Size 9×12 here. This is the grey version of the first rug on this list, but it looks like a pretty different rug so I included both colors separately. You may recognize this rug from our living room – it’s beautiful and I love it for all the same reasons I mentioned I loved the ivory version! (We got the grey for the living room because we thought it would be more animal proof…)

3. West Elm sweater wool rug. Size 8×10 and 10×12 here. We have this one in our master bedroom – you can see a peak of what it looks like in this post. We love it – it’s thick and cozy!

4. Safavieh Adirondack Collection ADR108B Ivory and Silver Oriental Vintage Medallion Area Rug. Size 8×10 here – click the link and then choose your rug size – this one comes in a ton of size options.

5. Safavieh Adirondack Vintage Distressed Ivory / Silver Rug. Size 8×10 here – click link and scroll down for other size options.

8x10s Area Rugs Under $700

Affordable rugs under $700

1. Pottery Barn rug. Size 8×10 and up here. To be totally honest, this is the rug I wanted to buy for our living room. I’ve seen it in store and it’s so lovely. Pottery Barn’s rugs are nice and thick and really excellent quality. But it was a little out of our budget this time around so we went with the rug I talked about above (which I also love).

2. Pottery Barn kids spotted rug. Size 8×10 here. Shopping at Pottery Barn Kids and Teen is my secret weapon for affordable rugs and lighting fixtures. This rug is a little more whimisical than the others in my roundup, but it’s super fun so I wanted to include it.

3. Pottery Barn Kids rug. Size 8×10 here.

4. World Market rug. Size 8×10 here.

5. Pottery Barn Trellis rug. Size 8×10 and 9×12 here.

Ps. Shoot me an email if you have questions about what size you should buy, etc. There are a lot of good articles out there that explain that so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel in this post, but I’m happy to chat about it!


What to Buy on Sale This Week


Levi’s is running their Friends and Family sale where you can get an additional 30% off site-wide through March 3rd. Use code FAM30 at checkout. I went a little nuts and ordered a whole bunch of jeans and shorts with the intention of keeping one or two and returning whatever doesn’t work for me. I scooped up these (in “that girl”), these (in “just a girl”), these (in “you pretty thing”), and these (in “waveline” and “blue explorer”).

Shopbop is running one of their site-wide sales right now through March 3rd. Use code GOBIG18 at checkout to save 15% off orders $200+, 20% off $500+, 25% off $800+. I ordered these and these for my Hawaii trip next month.

I’ve been trying to go on walks every morning (working from home has it’s perks) but have found the iPhone’s health tracker isn’t all that accurate when counting my steps. Plus if I’m not carrying my phone throughout the day the it doesn’t pick up my steps so my total count is way lower than it should be. So I’ve been considering a Fitbit, but I’m not in love with the idea of wearing something that looks so sporty all the time. I stumbled across this Fitbit Flex + Rosegold bangle combo (on sale!!!) and it appears to be the perfect solution!

One of my favorite pairs of everyday earrings is on sale right now. I have the rose gold.

Take 30% off select styles at J Crew. How cute is this tee and this jumpsuit?

How darling is this sweater?

I’ve had my eye on these earrings for months and they are on super duper sale right now.

Happy shopping!
