Summer to Fall in the South.

If you live in the South, you might be like me, craving a Fall wardrobe but sweat at the thought of wearing heavy sweaters, jeans, and boots while it's still in the 90's. The "change so seasons" always has me wanting to refresh my closet and sends me searching all of my favorite shops (and this morning I was even a little chilly walking Heidi girl). I thought I'd share some of my favorite pieces I came across recently that are not only perfect transitional pieces but most happen to be in the clearance sections also!

The top and bottom rows are all from JcrewFactory.com while the middle row items are from TJMaxx.com, BodenUSA.com, and Madewell.com. And most of these items may or may not be on their way to my closet right now...

Into Fall in the South

 JCrewFactory.com is also having an extra 50% off clearance items which makes their pieces an even bigger steal! Madewell.com is having an extra 30% off sale items, BodenUSA.com isn't having an extra sale ontop of their clearance but this dress used to be $118 and is now less than $35 so it's pretty crazy already!

Have you found any good deals lately? If so please share! Now if only the weather would catch up to the calendar!

Kitchen Chair Inspiration

Guess what?! We're building a house! I'm so excited, my head is spinning with ideas! I'll be sharing progress on it as it moves along as well as sneak peeks, I can't wait till they break ground! If you follow along on Instagram, then you might have seen we already had our design center meeting, and survived it. We were able to get just about everything we wanted on our wish list. There was only one detail they say they aren't able to fulfill that left me a bit disappointed but I'll get to that in another post. For now I'm thinking about our kitchen, mainly the breakfast nook area. We are in need of a new kitchen table as ours has been taken apart and put back together too many times I think that it's just too wobbly no matter what we do to fix it. Our chairs are still in decent shape structure wise but they really need a makeover. The finish is horrible thanks to all of the little hands and art projects in the house. 
I've been browsing Pinterest lately and while I've always loved mixing and matching tables with chairs, I've started contemplating going with a fun color on the chairs. Not sure if I will refinish our chairs or opt for new ones but here are some of the inspiration pictures I've found recently with not so neutral color chair options...
I couldn't find the link to this picture.


These next pictures might be a bit too loud for me but I still love how they look!

Can you guess which color I'm contemplating most? I've rounded up some of my top picks below. They're all from Wayfair.com and won't break the bank. (Follow the link below to my polyvore site and you'll be given a direct link for each product)

Now tell me, do you prefer neutral colors all around, or do you like a pop of color around the kitchen table?
