Random Thoughts #11142017



Is this room not just divine?  I can't tell you how much I truly love plaid and this time of year I am completely plaid obsessed!! Maybe a need a plaid headboard in the guest room.  Since I am still working on this space it could totally happen. Hmm ....

And of course this image belongs to the king of plaid himself Scot Meacham Wood.  No one else does it better!!  The entire article is fantastic ... you must check it out.

Happy Tuesday!  Anyone else having a strange week?  For starters I have broken three things already this week including a concrete acorn next to the driveway and am currently sitting in new pajama pants since I spilled my coffee on the first pair during carpool. I mean good times, right?  😆

 We all love a good random thoughts post and I have so many fun things to share so here we go ...


Top || Vest || Booties || Earrings

Remember this outfit from last week's post on wearing white jeans all year long?  Yesterday I featured the designer on the blog and I can't tell you how many emails I received from readers who just adore her and her amazing clothes.  If you missed the post it is a must read for sure, and if you have never shopped from her site before I would say you need to change that immediately.


I had the privilege of writing the story of my talented friends the Madcap Cottage gents for my monthly series on The Southern C blog.  It is always so much fun for me to interview people I am friends with because I learn so many fun things I didn't already know.  I call that a win, win. These gents have so many fun stories and I love hearing all the little details.  They are truly crazy fun!

Oh, and you can buy their fabulous book which was just released here.  It is so good and makes the perfect hostess gift!

I am more than excited about a set of 8 vintage scalloped Spode salad plates I scored antiquing this weekend with Parker Kennedy Living at Scott's.  They make me really excited about setting our Thanksgiving table.  I might have a major crush on Spode at the moment.  I currently am coveting this vase, this tray (would make the best gift!) and this fun piece. There is something about that stunning blue that is just slaying me at the moment.

Speaking of gifts ... if you haven't seen these coasters you will absolutely love them.



I had the best time in Dallas last week, next time I am staying for more than one day.  I absolutely love both Hazen & Co. and Barrington Gifts so it was so fun to spend a time brainstorming and working with two amazing brands for the day. We shopped, mingled, ate, sipped Pomegranate Moscow Mules and took amazing photos.  What else do you need for a fabulous day?  More images to come and more details to share ... but I couldn't help giving you a small sneak peek with this one.

I get so many compliments on my leopard loafers from this photo which are no longer available but I did find these which are similar and just as fabulous.

These earrings are by far the most asked about every single time I wear them.  I love them so and they are so fun for the holidays!


I came home from Dallas and went straight to Swoozie's to chat about Friendsgiving and we had the best time.  They have such fun things to pick up for Thanksgiving and all things for the weekend.  Can you believe it is less than two weeks away?  I used this runner for the table and these cups for the bar.  Make sure you check out these incredible paper plates which are by far my new faves for sure. A full post on this event and the yummy fall punch (so good!) I made coming on Friday!

These you must check out immediately ... the price is fabulous and I can think of five ways to wrap it up and give it for a gift this season.  Add in your favorite appetizer recipe or two limes and a cocktail recipe and it is ready to go!

This vest is a must see and buy at this price!

This post has my mouth watering for next week.  Anyone else love every single thing about eating Thanksgiving dinner?

I am going to need an invitation to this club immediately.  Please and thank you!


This precious baby has entered the blog world and I can tell you I am completely obsessed.  I love all things Kiel + Sarah and their darling baby is just as precious as I imagined.  And his name ... it is one that is quite special to me!

Do you read?  I love to read but with two busy kids and a full time blog schedule I don't find the time.  This list makes me think I need to carve out some time for one of my favorite hobbies.  As a child I could not read enough ... I need to get back into the routine for sure!

One of my favorite bloggers is sharing all the details from her wedding this week on her blog.  I am glued to the screen each morning.  So much goodness!  Her style is incredible and her attention to detail is everything.


Late afternoon add in ...

I just ordered this cape which you must check out.  I also ordered this bag, these gloves and this vest! The moment the mail came in I rushed to the computer and started typing as fast as I could.  If the cape wasn't on the backside of the catalog I wouldn't even have spotted it!  I am officially obsessed with everything I linked above.  Wow ... Talbots is officially on their A game!

Have the best day ... my goal today is to break nothing more!  😌
