My Top 5 Favs!- FASHION FRIDAYS-

Hi guys, happy Friday!! I haven’t done my top 5 favs of the week in some time.  So this time I thought It would be fashion inspired since the weather has just been so beautiful!  Now that I am done exams I have been catching my self dipping into my shopping addiction, uh oh!  No really I have been pretty good since the man came in to the picture 😛 I still do have a weakness for online shopping once and a while, during my searches these had to make my top 5 fav’s of the week!

1. The Handbag- I just cant get enough of FLORALS!! This beauty the ‘ ADELAIDE ‘ is from ALDO Shoes and goes for only $60.00.  The second option is a clutch for the evenings I love the contrast of mixed prints with the floral and stripes.  This one is called the ‘FENNIMORE’ and is on sale for $29.98.   Freshen up an outfit with a little fun in your handbags.  I think they are such a great way to make any outfit pop!

2. SABO SKIRT has done it again for me.  This time with Rompers!! It is romper season and I found colorful fun and unique rompers.  All three of these range from $50- $70.

Who doesn’t love Peonies?  I adore this print and the fit of this first Romper.  Pineapple craze! This boho-flowy romper can look great on any body shape.  For me its the backing- dropped fringe detail, so feminine.  Last but not least the tartan overall, this is perfect for a relaxing weekend at the cottage.  Its relaxed fit and y back detail still will have you looking trendy yet comfortable.

3.  Anybody that knows me knows I have a bikini addiction, it probably doesn’t help that I get emails daily from Victoria Secret luring me in!  I cant help it I probably have over 40 bikinis and yet still feel the need that I need more, I have a problem.  It was so hard to choose my favorites but I had to narrow them down.

Floral Print and cheetah?  The best combination, what makes this suit even better is that you can choose the style of the bottoms to mix and match. The corset back is also amazing, also it is on sale!!  I normally don’t go for the one piece bathing suit, this one is so chic and such a statement piece with its color blocking how could you not.  Pair this with a large floppy hat and oversized sunnies.  Everyone needs a classic black bikini why not dive in to the retro look with a high wasted bottom.  This trend started one-two summers ago, but only recently has started to become more popular. Sexy Brazilian cut bottoms, this has been my weakness since my friend first started bringing them back for me from Portugal and then Brazil! So fun and flirty mix and match them with any top!

4. ZARA Shoes- I will take one in each color please! I am so in love with these shoes I think I might ordered them over the weekend.  Leather and oversized buckle ❤ Which color to choose though White or the Black?

5. Nasty Gal finds are my favorite.  The Kimono look can be so easily styled, weather it be dressing up simple shorts and T for that extra edge.  Or over top a straight legged tailored trouser and blouse for the office. These pieces are so transitional they can even be a cover for a beach day over your bikini!

My Top 5 Favs of the Week! .4. 22.14

My Top 5 Fav’s!

1. Floral Prints- Spring time is here guys and I am loving it. I can finally start to wear less layers and can bring out some of my colorful clothes from hibernation. I’m especially loving floral prints right now.

2. Quartz!  I am loving quartz countertops, even though they are relatively new vs marble or granite.  There are tons of colors to choose from and are visually stunning in any room.  It has the same durability as concrete or granite however can be a bit more forgiving so it wont chip or crack as easily.  Its a non porous material so it resists staining much better than granite.

3. Strappy Heels- Such a fashion forward statement piece for spring.  Pair them with rolled up boyfriend jeans, belt and loose tee.  Or Dress them up with straight legged black pants, blouse and a blazer.

4. I love this find I got for my bosses office, from Homesense.  I found it very fitting as he has been a custom home builder for 25 years.  It brought a little vintage feel into the office space.

5. Penny Tile-  Also known as penny rounds a little throwback to the early 1900s.  They have come full circle to harmonize with nearly every style, from Victorian to bungalow, midcentury modern to contemporary.  Penny tiles can be used in several different areas , backsplashes, wall tile, accents, flooring in a washroom, columns and even fireplaces.  I think you will being to see a lot more if this product being used!

My top 5 Favs! 04.15.14

This week I was inspired to talk about kitchens since I am looking into building a new home soon with my employer Sunlight Heritage Homes.  Inspiration is all around me and I thought I would take advantage and share it all with you.

Two tone kitchens have been popular for quite some time now. I particularily like to see a mix of materials used that are un expected and something that you wouldn’t normally see used for typical kitchen cabinetry.

 

#1

My first fav kitchen picture.. Where do I begin, from the glam glossy backsplash to the reclaimed wood island.  This kitchen has me all over it.  Mixing materials and styles is my favorite part about design.  The different textures add tons of character to this kitchen.

#2.

Another reclaimed wood island, I think we may have a trend here for what I like in kitchens.  I love the soft grey upper and lower cabinetry with the chimney style range hood.  The Island has a country barn feel which I also admire.  The steel stools complete this look for me.

The all white kitchen is definitely in my top 5 right now.  Very clean and fresh with the dark grey sleek quartz counter, don’t get me started on the partial integrated wood cutting board feature.  The A-frame dome type light fixtures add just enough shape to the space that it needs.

#4.

Hello Raised Breakfast bar! I love that this designer used a different material and texture for the raised bar instead of keeping it uniform with the countertops.  This feature is stunning especially if you are tight for space its a great way to incorporate extra seating.

I saved the best for last. I Loveeee this space, yes this photo deserves four e’s on the Love. The Brick accent wall, Black Chimney hood range, the light white wash wood paneled ceiling and darker Decorative Wooden beams.  The enormous island, this space is my favorite.  I especially like the two tone kitchen and how they have used two different counters for the kitchen and the island.

I hope you enjoyed these kitchens as much as I did.  My head is just flowing with creative ideas and new features that I can incorporate into our future home.  Now we just need to decided what we want to go with for our design.  Either way I cant wait for that project to begin and to see what we end up coming up with.
