THIS is what I wore to the Del Frisco’s Grille Blogger Brunch the other weekend!  I was trying to keep it fresh with WHITE accessories – a denim jacket, leather tote, and those graphic black/white sandals.  BTW, the sandals are on final clearance!

I’ve worn this Katydid Aztec Romper multiple times now.  It is LITERALLY so easy to wear.  I mean… you just put.it.on. and you are ready to go!  When I was running around with my little man, it was the romper, my gold/cork Jack Rogers sandals, and hair in a pony.  Another bonus, it has POCKETS!  You know I’m a sucker for pockets.

The Style Rx:  Rompers are easy-peasy for Summer!  Be casual with flat sandals and a cross-body bag.  Glam it up with heels or wedges and fabulous accessories.  Sophisticate yourself by throwing on a blazer or vest!  And you can NEVER go wrong with WHITE!

LOVING these whites!


And by the way, I’m aware that “rompering” isn’t a word!  Just trying to be clever yo!

It’s been TOO LONG since a ‘From Grandma with Love‘ post!  Luckily for me, G-ma found some more things to go from her closet to mine!  I was super excited when my MIL gave me this awesomely 80s white jumpsuit.  She knows that I’ve been all about the jumpsuits lately!  It just needed a good wash and it was ready to go.

The Style Rx:  WHITE OUT your summer with a jumpsuit!  It’s low on the effort level but high on the glam factor.  Opt for neutral accessories to be a vision-in-white or add a pop of bright color {like neon yellow or fuchsia} for dramatic impact.

Happy Monday Y’all!  :)

It’s FRIDAY!!!  Are you ready for the WEEKEND!!  I’m always ready, especially if there’s good friends and food involved!  Last weekend, I had the pleasure of hosting a Blogger Brunch at Del Frisco’s Grille.  If you follow me on Instagram, you were probably wondering about my #MeatUpDrinkUp hashtag last weekend.  That’s what it’s all about people!  ;)

We had a choice of mimosas topped off with fresh berries or a build-your-own Bloody Mary.  Can you guess which one I chose?  HELLO… the Bloody Mary fixins’ had BACON!  Then, we moved on to amazing appetizers… ahi tacos, risotto cakes, and some amazing deviled eggs {with truffle oil}. YUM!  Finally, I stuffed myself to the max with the banana & mascarpone stuffed french toast.  Hey, it’s the weekend right?  #TreatYoSelf  BTW, Del Frisco’s Grille serves brunch on Saturday AND Sunday.  HOORAY for Brunch!

Besides the phenomenal food, I had the MOST FUN getting to chat with all of the lovely ladies!  These are the blogger babes that attended…{in alphabetical order} Amanda Marie of Amanda Marie Blog, Amy of The Blissful Bee, Brooke of One Small Blonde, Heather of Style by Fluent, Lauren of Blue Eye Brown Eye, Lindsey of A Pilot’s Wife, and Tanya of Film Fashion Fun.  It’s a mix of Fort Worth and Dallas gals who blog about everything from fashion, lifestyle, design, and even a calligrapher within the group.  You should really hop on over to each of their blogs!  You’ll thank me later!

Don’t ask me why I’m doing a nursery reveal when my little guy is almost a year old!  Nothing like selling your house to get you motivated right?!  Anyhow, we had the basics done when the little one was born.  I just needed to add the finishing touches.  So VIOLA!  It’s done… and NOW we move!

Just in case you missed it, I did a baby inspiration post before my little man arrived, and most of this room is the fruition of that post.

Gender Neutral // Since we weren’t sure if we would be blessed with a boy or girl, we painted the room a neutral and cool grey, something soft and classic.

Art, Patterns, and Texture // I LOVE the play of different patterns, colors, and textures.  We found the sage green patterned rug at Crate and Barrel on sale.  Since it was 100% wool and rather itchy, I layered a Flokati rug on top.  To add lightness in the room, I changed the bed linens to this white duvet cover from West Elm.  It’s white but not too plain because of the seersucker design.  Etsy is one of my FAVE place to find great art!  The key piece in the room is that gorgeous print from Emma Lawrenson.  It has the perfect balance of feminine and masculine colors and tied everything together.  The mamma and baby elephant graphic is so darling.  We got Little M a felt bee mobile because he loved the “welcome home” decor that my sweet SIL put up in the house, which included hand-made bees!  The pieces that mean the most to me are made with love from friends and family.  My best friends, Elizabeth and Michelle, made that canvas with the quote, “Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own.  My love my child is infinite.  You weren’t born under my heart but in it.”  I LOVE it.  The little boy praying cross was made by Mr. S’s uncle.  And the Brooklyn Bridge photography was shot by my cousin, Bryce.  He is SO TALENTED!  Not pictured is a hand knitted blanket from my BFF, Mashawna.

Lighting // I found this fun chandelier at Lowes, which is almost IDENTICAL to the IKEA Knappa lamp.  Lighting helps to finish the room.  It’s the “final touch”!

Crib // I was OBSESSES with the Ouef Sparrow Crib, but NOT the price.  The alternative that I found was the Babyletto Hudson Crib – Simple, Modern, and Safe.  It converts to a toddler bed so we will be able to use it for awhile.  {It was around at the time, but this Ti Amo crib has the same modern look.} Mr. S and I discussed whether or not we should get “forever” furniture that would “grow” with our child into adulthood.  We felt like this was good for our current lifestyle.

Rocker // It’s not a glider and Mr. S really doesn’t like it at all!  Because we were limited on space, I felt like it was a good alternative.   And throwing an Ikea rug on it makes it so much more cozy.  You’ve seen some pics of the little guy on it.  HE loves it!

Dresser/Changing Table // Since Little M’s nursery doubles as a guest room, I spruced up a very “adult” dresser by changing the knobs out for a sweeter look and adding a changing pad on top.  I still LOVE those owl knobs!   Little M’s next room will be his own, so he’ll be getting a new dresser.  I’m thinking about the matching Babyletto dresser!

The Little Things // In the crib, there is a convertible monkey blanket/backpack.  I had purchased two of those from BARNEYS years ago when my nephew was born hoping to have it for our baby on the way.  My nephew is in first grade already!  Crazy how things go but we are SO GRATEFUL for the miracle of our baby boy!!

I guess I’ll be doing an infant room reveal after we move to the new house!  Happy Wednesday Friends!
