A few weekends ago Mr. W and I celebrated 7 years! Traditional anniversary gifts for year 7 are wool/copper, and while a set of Moscow mule cups would have been cute... I decided on suede. This lovely lil bag was on super sale from H&M making it all the more sweeter. Such a classic shape and design I'm sure it will be a favorite for the next 7 years.

Rugs USA has another 90% off final sale going right now, and I just couldn't help myself.
I threw this giant Moroccan beauty in my cart for $170, and I can't wait to see it in person.

I've been drawn to the black and brown Beni Ourain rugs for quite some time, but since my spare bedroom is so dark I figured it needed some color.

Below was my runner up rug...and looking at them together I'm still torn HA.

Yikes its almost 100 degrees today in Chicago, I think summer is officially here. One of my summer staples is the espadrille and I've been hunting for the perfect pair so here's a round up:

Coffee Table Essentials

What's on your coffee table? for me the essentials are some sort of tray to keep everything contained and from looking cluttered, and CB2 happens to be killing it in the tray dept.
Trays: high gloss square mint tray / stainless steel / copper tray
Once you've got your tray, go ahead and fill it! I love a mix of thrifted and travel treasures (that skull is from my first mexico trip)  Fresh flowers are always lovely, I usually try to pick up some inexpensive ones at trader joes...and you can't go wrong with finishing off your coffee table with candles, I'm pretty obsessed with smokey scents right now. I keep my matches in a a little glass bottle with a striker glued to the bottom (there are cute options to purchase or you can easily DIY one.
Accessories: HB Firewood Candle / match holder /  ceramic vase tall / short / brass crab / coffee table
...and voila, here's my coffee table. I love the striations in the marble and the simple brass legs AND the fact that this was another craigslist steal
This post was inspired by Chairish, head over to see even more coffee tables.

Summer Ready

It's already spring in Chicago and spring break is just around the corner! annnnnd while I doubt we'll be going anywhere beachy this time around I've ordered a few things to tide me over, and mostly on the cheap.
Scalloped Suit / Sunnies (not a bad take on those beloved Dior ones) / gladiators

On Deck

Finally it's spring so it's time to look at some outside projects while we wrap up things inside (antique mirror DIY, and half bath pics to come).  We've talked about doing a dream back yard from the second we moved in, so it's time to get started on the deck. First on the list are some bench seats, and a modern awning to let in a mix of sun and shade. Once these are built I plan to hit target and ikea since they are both winning at the outdoor decor game this season.

More to come!
