You ready to talk about some new things I want?? Because there’s always more, and I’m never done! Just part of the joy of life!
Since I’ve made the decision to move, I’ve really been doing a lot of self-reflection about my style. I’ve completely cleaned out my closet by donating all of my “Philly” clothes to GoodWill and posting the rest on PoshMark. It felt SO great to make room for new clothes that feel more me now, which reminds me of this classic 😂
Let’s jump right in!
Monogrammed Scalloped Cross Body Purse The epitome of Southern style is the monogram, so I’ve suddenly started craving some embroidered initials of my own. I found this sweet one, but it’s currently sold out. I definitely put in my email address for when it comes back in stock 😳Plan B: Etsy. They totally delivered and I found several identical bags from different vendors. I think I might go for one of these from PoppyPine.
I already have a hot pink cross body, but isn’t the Coral uh-maz-ing?? All it needs is a seersucker dress, straw hat, and a matching coral lip *swoon* Or, I could do the tan. Or the cork. All with straw hat and coral lip, obviously.
White Denim And I’ve still never got my hands on white denim pants. I did find a pair of these distressed Blue Spice cuties on Bob’s Stores. Never heard of it, but at $29.99, that’s totally reasonable!
For years, my job is to source the most trendy, desirable, and cool AF furniture. So, naturally, I’m exposed to lots of unique pieces…So, naturally, I’ve wanted everything…So, naturally, I’ve changed my mind about what I like…a thousand times. This has resulted in not purchasing anything new (just furniture, duh!) – with the exception of the gorg Montclair sofa from crate&barrel in 2014. But that’s basically like forever ago, so yeah, it’s about time for some new stuff!
Pom Pom Bedding After my last bedroom post, I started to get real antsy about my new bedding. I’ve had my current duvet cover since it rose to “stardom” in 2014. But, it’s overused and I’m over it. I’m a completely different person with a new life in a new city, and I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have my bedding reflect it. *drops mic*
I’ve really been craving some all-white bedding. You know the feeling – climbing into clean, crisp, cool sheets after a hot summer day. Bring on the daydream! Since I am a self-described whimsical woman, I thought maybe Berber Wares’ fun pom pom quilt would be the perfect light-weight cover for the warmer months.
But the price is a bit steep, $244 for a Queen, without matching shams. Yikes. Guess I’m not eating for a month…
So maybe this one by Sweet Home Bedding via Amazon? But it also doesn’t include shams.
Grrr. Is it a quilt with no matching shams OR sleeping with a heavy duvet in a non-airconditioned apartment that keeps me up at night?
And then when the temps drop, I’ll add this winter white duvet cover with matching shams from Amazon.
*Separately, I just cancelled my Prime membership a month ago today, because I’m the only person in the world who doesn’t compulsively buy on Amazon – I prefer to compulsively shop in person – and of course, now I’m shopping A to Z on the daily*
Thanks for listening!
