Currently Coveting: H&M Fall

Currently Coveting: H&M Fall


Now that it's September, the kids are back in school, and the weather isn't super hot immediately in the morning (but it is after 6pm?), I'm looking at Fall clothing. I've seen a few favorite bloggers finding amazing pieces at H&M so I perused the website this morning and wanted to share my personal favorites. While all of it really appeals to me, the faux leather pants, tiger cardigan, and the blazer in particular, I'm feeling especially fond of... a trip to H&M is in my future. Lots of mix & matchability in this round-up, too!

Living Room Updates

Living Room Updates


It has taken forever to get some pictures taken of our family room but I'm finally ready to share EVERYTHING! With two kids and toys everywhere... constantly, I had to wait for the perfect combination of no kids around and find the time to actually get the space clean. Good news, it finally happened and I'm happy to share our updates!


As I mentioned, we really live in this space. It's never going to be perfect (i.e. that crooked window shade UGH), but I love the texture of the room and finally having it "officially" finished. I went back and forth about how to configure this space. I tried the navy couch on the left for a few weeks as I really didn't want to lose the natural light gained from the windows here, but the navy couch found it's home, and I really love it over there without losing too much light or worrying about furniture in front of the window. Staring at the back of the beige couch isn't great, so eventually, I sprung for another glass console and it ended up being a place to house the textured poufs too.

Despite building this house ourselves, there is a lot of wire issues in terms of where we had the outlets placed. I'm not a HUGE faux greenery (or real greenery) person, but it works nicely to hide some of the wiring, especially when you love acrylic and glass pieces as much as me. I've had good luck between Hobby Lobby and Target for those. All that to say, if you have the opportunity to actually plan where you're going to put all of your furniture prior to deciding electrical outlet placement, it's probably not a bad idea and you can avoid some of the electrical hiding issues I've had! I also would have purchased one size larger in the rug. I think we have an 8x10, 9x12 would have made it feel a little less crammed.



Bodie still loves to adjust this gallery wall for some reason, so if you walk into my house, there's a great chance one of these is super crooked. They were just printed on Snapfish straight from my Instagram, though the bottom right option is from Rachel Rowland Photography - we just signed up for another one of her mini sessions and I honestly cannot wait! 


So this is it, for now! I'd love to get a larger piece of artwork for the wall behind the chairs, but other than that, I'm considering this space done... which feels like a huge relief! We hosted family in between a wedding ceremony and reception a few weeks ago and it finally pushed me to finish our family room.

Let me know if I miss anything in the links, and if there's anything you might have tried differently, I'm all ears!

Our Deck

Our Deck


I couldn't be more in love with our current outdoor space, and while I know we have a ways to go in terms of landscaping and a patio out of the basement, getting our deck completed this summer was definitely a big strike off the to-do list for our home.

I have already talked about this a little, but I asked for suggestions for contractors on my Instagram and a Pure Barre client (thanks, Ashley!) recommended a local teacher who does amazing wood work. When we reached out to him, we learned he didn't do this type of a large scale job, but he recommended another guy who we came to find out worked for Lowe's. Typically, I wouldn't want to reach out to a big box retailer for this type of work, but it turns out it was just perfect. They subcontract to a local contractor who had already worked with my sister, Decked Out by Don, and we couldn't be more happy with the results. If you're local to Pittsburgh and want specific names and numbers, please let me know, and tell them I sent you their way!

My goal for this space was black and white with color mixed in. I wanted a boho feel and while that didn't come as easily as I had hoped, mostly due to Pittsburgh weather and my fear of buying pieces that aren't going to last, I'm still happy with the results!



As for furniture, I knew I wanted a great lounge space and a place to have a meal. As per usual, I wanted something a little different and I drew inspiration from Seersucker and Saddles. I actually had her exact set from World Market in my cart, but shipping was no longer available on like half the items. From there, I went to Wayfair!

The table and benches are currently on sale, and honestly I love them. I was unsure about such a dark wood because I definitely lean lighter on all things, but paired with the white it looks really great. I added chairs to the ends from Target, also on sale. The Minnidip pool has been a nice touch this summer - our kids love to hang out there while Jeff and I try to get a tan! You guessed it, also on sale right now. Rest assured, the blow up pool isn't always on our deck.

The sectional is a bit different for me too - I loved the white paired with the fun rattan detailing, and the fact it came with a coffee table to match. Surprisingly, not on sale, but I'm sure it will be soon! All of the other details came straight from Target and Homegoods. I picked up the rug on sale at Target on Sunday, as well as the umbrella. The rug is no longer online from what I can tell, and the umbrella is linked here. The pink chairs are my absolute favorite. I had to scour every Homegoods in Pittsburgh but eventually found two at the Wexford location.

We purchased covers for both the sectional and the table through Amazon, and we're able to get the coffee table underneath the dinner table, which is a big win for our storage space in the basement this winter! We'll be able to store everything but the big furniture down there, but so far, so good with the covers.

I'm looking forward to spending more time outside the next few months. What would you add to the space? I feel like I still have a lot of zhushing up I could do!

Easy DIY:  Name Bracelets

Easy DIY: Name Bracelets



I'm hopping on to share an easy DIY I've been doing with Georgia this week. A few weeks ago one of my favorite blogs posted about these bracelets she had purchased for the other blog author and I was like, well I need to get on this and it looks easy enough to do myself!  I scooped everything from Amazon aside from the string, which I got from Michael's, but I linked up a similar option as well.

Find the colored beads here, the letter beads here, and the string here. Easy enough!! Georgia and I will be making these for everyone we know, but I'm enjoying layering mine with other jewelry and my Apple Watch!
