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…

Sophisticated Summer Flats


I really love the way high-heel sandals look, especially the strappy ones, but my feet definitely prefer flats. During the warmer months, when you find yourself doing anything from walking around a farmer's market, shopping down a boardwalk during a day at the beach, or dancing the night away at a summer wedding; you can skip the heels and go for some super cute flats.

For a dressy look, you can skip the heels by picking an open-toe D'Orsay flat or a sleek pointed-toe dressy flat. It's easier to plan around the shoe as well. If you need to wear a cocktail dress, for example, start with a flared or A-line skirt, as that silhouette looks much better than a fitted skirt does with flats. Look for sleek or metallic finishes as well, or some sparkle like the glittered Nine West Werein Flats pictured above.


A pair of sleek slip-on sneakers, like the Kaanas Serengeti sneakers pictured above, are perfect for pairing with a very casual look, but can also go with a dress. Try them with shorts and a nice top, or a casual T-shirt dress for a Saturday afternoon look.


Espadrilles are another fun alternative to heels for a dressy-casual summer look. This season, they come on so many cute D'Orsay and lace-up versions. Perfect for pairing with shorts or a dressy-casual boho dress, like a trendy off-the-shoulder dress, for example. Pictured: Soludos Sheila Espadrilles
