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…

Editor's Picks: Lemon Love

Every summer there is a new contender in the world of cutesy, fun prints. The last few years have included the palm prints, flamingos, watermelon, and of course the pineapple. Now don't get me wrong, these are not at all on the way out. It seems the pineapple and flamingos have become seasonal staples that will come back year after year (yay 😊). But this summer, citrus fruits, particularly lemons, are also enjoying some time in the spotlight. Pictured above: FANCY LOVE Lemon Cross-body Shoulder Bag (also available in watermelon) $17.99

From cute lemon wedge clutches to pretty lemon-print dresses, I'm seeing them all over my favorite fashion blogs and Instagram pages. Big brands like ban.do, J.Crew, and Betsey Johnson (just to name a few) have joined in on the trend. Here are a few of my favorites.

Some of my favorite fashion bloggers like Julia Hengel of Gal Meets Glam and Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific got started on the lemon trend as early as this Spring. See how a few of my other favorites Style Charade, The Polished Posey, and Katie's Bliss each styled this gorgeous Moon River Women's Lemon Print Midi Dress.

I haven't personally tried the trend yet. I tend to shy away from yellow, as I have dark hair and dark skin, but that kensie top pictured above seems like it would work great for tanned skin tones. I might have to give it a try. What do you think of the lemon-print trend? Let me know in the comments below!

And stay tuned this week while I share pics from the Dallas Museum of Art and a few other beautiful places I explored with my husband in our new home state of Texas. Have a great week!🙂
