Summertime and the living is easy!
I loving this beautiful weather we’re having. I trying to soak up every minute of these low humidity days because I know that in no time flat it will be hot, humid and sticky outside. A couple of weeks ago I purged my closet and organized it for the warmer months. I’ve also been doing the same with my decor. After all the organizing was done I made a shopping list for a few new things I
needed wanted to help me usher in summer.
If you know me, you know I love colorful earrings, especially during the summer. I’ve got my eyes on these Baha Drop Earrings which happen to have two of my favorite summer colors in them–turquoise and orange.
I’ve had this book, It’s Not How Good You Are on my reading list for a while now and just picked it up to take on the cruise we have planned later this summer. I always enjoy inspirational reads when we travel because my mind is more relaxed and I can really absorb the content.
My favorite candle scent of all times is gardenia and this Gardenia Scented Candle is what I’m burning right now in my office. I wish you could scratch your screen and enjoy this amazing scenes with me.
I’ve never met a handbag I didn’t like and this Boho Clutch is not only colorful and cute, it’s only $9.99! The perfect piece for a weekend or to throw in a larger summer tote like the one below.
Target has some really, really fabulous tote bags right now and this classic Straw Tote with Tassel is perfect of all my summer activities. Available in 4 colors.
I spotted this Acrylic Monogram Bracelet when I was shopping for earrings and think it’s perfect for my summer wardrobe.
I started wearing readers a few years ago and have been on the hunt for reader sunglasses. My favorite reading eyewear company, Peepers has a great selection of sunglasses and great prices and these tortoise Reader Sunglasses are my fave.
I already own 3 pair of Converse sneakers and just ordered these adorable Converse Crochet Sneakers. They’re also available in navy.
I think I found the perfect dessert spoons for summer, Floral Dessert Spoons from One Kings Lane.
I rarely shop at Old Navy but popped in over the Memorial Day weekend because they were having a great sale. I bought these Stripped Linen Pants ($20) which just scream summer to me. Also available in a cropped length which would be really cute with your crocheted sneakers.

Another week has come and gone and I can’t believe we are already heading into May. Boy do I wish time would slow down a bit.
I’m back with another round of my favorite Posts, Pins and Products and hope you enjoy what I’m sharing. Cheers!
I have a love for typography and this post on Stylish Note Taking really struck a cord with me. You can apply these same tips to your calendar and to-do list. #prettypenmanship
It’s a dream of mine to write a book and I have learned so much about the process listening to the Hope Writers podcast series. #lifedreams
I absolutely love the mix of materials in this space and the heirloom quality achieved with the eclectic mix of decor.
It’s always fun to see artwork displayed in a non-traditional way. The layering of these frames over the fireplace adds a lot of impact to this living room.
A perfect high-low mix with high-end finishes, investment furniture and budget friendly blue and white chairs from Pier 1.
Mother’s Day is two weeks away and I’ll be sharing my gift picks with you next week. Until then, here’s two items that I know you mom would love.
I started ‘collecting’ tea cups from Anthropologie a few years ago and feel so pampered when I relax for a cup of tea. This new cup and saucer is so pretty and will make mom feel extra special.
If you’re feeling the need to treat yourself to a little something, something this triple pearl necklace is pretty and a great price.
If you have a favorite post, pin or product please share it with me by leaving a comment. I’d love to know what’s inspiring you.

Two thumbs up for the weekend!
Now that we’ve sprung forward and the first official day of spring is just days away, I feel like its time to make the switch in my closet from my winter wardrobe to my spring wardrobe. It’s also time to take stock of what I own and head out to buy a few new fashion pieces. On my shopping list this spring are boho inspired looks. Boho style is a lot like my design style–eclectic, whimsical and full of personality so it’s no wonder I like this look.
Here are a few pieces I’ve spotted while shopping the web.
Since we’re on the topic of fashion, I’ve rounded up a few fashion related links I think you’ll enjoy.

I, like most women have a thing for jewelry. My particular crush is on bold statement pieces that have lots of personality and wow.
During the cold winter months, statement necklaces are a great way to accessorize layered clothing and bulkier pieces like a sweater or blazer. A statement necklace can add instant impact to any outfit, causal or dressy.
Here’s a round-up of a few statement necklaces I just discovered and styling tips on how to wear them.
How To Style A Statement Necklace
♦ The chunkier the clothing, the chunkier the necklace–make sure your necklace can hold its own against the texture and visual weight of your sweater or jacket.
♦ Mix it up–don’t be afraid to wear multiple necklaces together to create your own signatures statement style.
♦ Go for the hi-low mix–a statement necklace can work just as well with a causal sweater and jeans as it can with a cashmere cardigan and tailored slacks.
♦ Layer with necklaces–wear statement necklaces to fill in an open neckline on a v-neck sweater or button up shirt.
♦ Statement necklace and collared shirts are a great combo–wear choker or shorter length necklaces under a collared shirt to create polished look. Statement necklaces look great with turtlenecks too!
1) Black Stone Metal Necklace–$24.99 2) Feather Necklace–$34.99 3) Gold Metal Necklace–$24.99
4) Multi-Strand Necklace–$17.99 5) Pria Layered Bead Necklace–$20.00
1) Bainbridge Layer Necklace–$64.00 2) Balletomane Bib Necklace–$98.00 3) Jura Necklace–$99.95
4) Aurelia Necklace–$68.00 5) Manella Stack Pendant Necklace–$58.00

Last year I started a holiday series entitled 30 Days of Holidays. I had such a blast sharing all kinds of holiday decorating, wrapping, gifting and entertaining ideas that I’ve decided to run the series again this year.
The 30 Days of Holidays series will kick off on Nov. 24th with the first of my holiday gift guides. I’ve been shopping my favorite stores and online shops to bring you the best gifts to give (or put on your list) this Christmas. As part of the series I’ll also be sharing holiday DIY projects, gift wrap ideas and my holiday decor.
Since I’ve got holiday gifts on my mind, I thought it would be fun to share my personal gift list with you. These are all items that I’d buy for myself (and in some cases already have) or would love to find under the tree on Christmas morning.
Enjoy and let me know which item is your favorite!

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend.
I was a busy beaver but did manage a little time outdoors enjoying the weather. One of the big task on my to-do list was adding new items to the ConfettiStyle Etsy Shop. I added over 50 new vintage decor and jewelry items and still have more to add, including some vintage holiday pieces.
If you’ve never been to my Etsy shop and are wondering what types of items I sell, let me tell you about the shop. I opened my Etsy shop a few years ago and really focused on selling pieces that I loved and would decorate my own home with. I am an avid flea market shopper and the shop was a great way for me to make some of what I find available to you. There are several different categories of items in the shop but you’ll find milk glass and ironstone pieces, brass decor and lots of unique vintage items. Back in 2012 I started making vintage jewelry and add my handcrafted jewelry to the shop. 2012 was also the year when my jewelry was selected as an editors’ pick by Country Living Magazine and was featured in the Dec/Jan 2012 issue.
Over the years I’ve added additional handcrafted pieces including designer clipboards which have been very popular. I have a new collection of clipboards that will be available in the shop soon.
So all in all, my Etsy shop is an extension of my passion for vintage decor, jewelry and my love of handcrafting! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the items you’ll find in the shop…
And in case you missed it, I’ve decided to expand my shop presence and begin selling vintage finds on Instagram in a new shop called The Vintage Box. This has been something I’ve thought about for almost a year and I’m excited to launch the shop later this month.
The Instagram shop will have a more focused product offering and I’ll also be selling vintage jewelry as well. I’m still nailing down the details of the sales so follow along here to be the first to know when the shop opens.
You never know what treasures are in the box!

It has been months since I’ve been to Anthropologie. I try to pop in at least once a month to see what new gems they have but my summer travels and work kept me away.
I took a little time this past weekend to drop by the store (in hopes of starting a little Christmas shopping) and there were so many awesome items that I could hardly contain myself.
