A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.


My husband and I take frequent breaks throughout the day, with a coffee break here and there and a lunch hour during which we watch one of our favorite shows togeth…

Style Trend 2013: Three Ways to Wear Western Boots this Fall


Boots are always trendy for fall. It's the one accessory I look forward to the most the entire year. For fall 2013, there are a few old trends that are making a major comeback, like Hunter boots and western-inspired boots. The cowgirl boots have been slowly creeping into trends the last few years, and the trend is exploding for fall 2013. The easiest way to wear the trend is to treat tall cowgirl boots the same way you would a pair of riding boots. Wear them with skinny jeans, and chunky sweater, and leather satchel.

Western boots are the perfect way to take a summer dress into fall. Pair them with a printed dress and layer on a denim jacket or blazer. For this look, I'd go with suede ankle boots.

This is a much more sleek version of the trend. If you're not totally into the cowgirl look, go for the high heel booties featured above (also available in black), or these GUESS peep toe western booties. Pair them with a casual dress or skinny jeans and a blouse.

  3. The boots in the top photo look more like riding boots.

    I used to own several pair of boots. Now I don't want to wear shoes at all....

  4. I like those boots in the first picture and I could see wearing them with everything but I need wide-calf boots and nice leather ones that don't cost an arm and a leg are hard to find.

    1. I always have good luck at the Ross in my city. They always have tall leather boots for about $30-$40. But I feel spoiled with the Ross here. They get so much great stuff in stock at this location and it's always marked WAY down.
