My Home Decor

What makes a home special and unique? It's the simple details that make the difference. As promised, today I will share my favorite pieces of our home.  As I mentioned previously here, my goal is to go with a french vintage country style/shabby chic look, however, buying new furniture was not an option, so I had to work with what I currently own. With that being said, I decided to purchase pieces that compliment my furniture to drive toward that french shabby chic feel. Thanks to Rachel Ashwell my obsession has gone to another level. I've fallen in love with the outcome…and better yet, my husband is pleased (so that's a plus!). The best part of it all? I can always switch things up and play with my space without having to invest in new pieces. It's a win-win!

Easy does it

I'm a firm believer that to be stylish there is no need to wear name brand items and spend a fortune just to be on trend. It may sound repetitive, but I have to put it out there! Don't get me wrong, if you can afford it, by all means go for it! However, it's OK to rock a look that not only makes YOU feel good but helps the pocket book, you know what I mean? ;) With temperatures dropping like crazy, this faux fur vest came just in time! Not to mention this fabulous hat that completes the whole ensemble. Easy does it!

New Changes

Bienvenidos 2015! I'm looking forward to this New Year and some personal goals I've set for myself as well as changing a few aspects of my blog. Don't get me wrong, I love writing about fashion and all, but it's always good to share other things that spark my interest like home decor and my personal life (i.e., my struggle with infertility). I know many females can relate so I believe it's always good to share your story with others because you never know who you'll inspire. So stay tuned!
