FASHION





Call me scrooge.  I did not get the hype about the Eclipse.  I'm not trying to rain on anyones parade or anything but I feel like the media tried to turn it into the second coming or something.....

Maybe it was a good diversion from everything that is going on in our country today.....and I certainly applaud all of you raising children in this world....it's gotta be tough.

OK......enough seriousness from me.  I've got some fashion for you today.

Y'all wanted to know the details on what I wore to speak on my panel.

Nothing special.  The top was Eileen Fisher linen bought on "serious sale".  The jeans were AG my favorite fit.  The shoes...[Franco Sarto] well I couldn't find them anywhere in that color now. 

Remember I blogged about them here and lawd they are extremely comfy.

This whole post started with these shoes from Banana Republic at 40% off plus if you use your card an extra 10%.







I was pretty excited when I saw them and then she came out and said she didn't have my size.  Mini meltdown.  What?  Pull it together Sherika.

So we started looking online and I asked her to bring me another color for fit.

She went back and 5 minutes later came out with them in my size!!!  I was so excited I hugged her which I am sure was an invasion of her personal space.

As I was walking around the store clutching them close I got excited about what I would wear with them.

I tried on these jeans....so cute.... high waisted and vintage [no stretch!] plus fringe hem. 

Done.  In line to pay.

Then I headed up to Ann Taylor because they were also doing 40% off.


I added another white top to my lineup.....cause Lord knows I need that :)



Then I was on a role....I am always looking for cute orthopedic comfortable shoes and these Vans fit the bill!  And the pink raincoat....yes!




Gingham is on point in design and fashion!  How cute is this number below from J Crew Facotry?

I pretty much wear white jeans every day in the summer.....and the good thing is they are easy to dress up or down.  I also have these sunglasses and they are my favorite.


Of course now I want these shoes:)  They definitely fit the bill of "cute and comfortable" agree?


It's that time of the year when we want to start wearing fall with September being only 9 days away..... but it is going to be in the 90's today so that is not happening.  

Hopefully with a few tweaks in your wardrobe you can still look cute until the cooler weather arrives!

DESIGN PLAN





Good morning!  

Yesterday I was on a panel at Americas Mart talking about social media.  Like I'm an expert or something:)

Which clearly I am not but I sure had fun!


I got a chance to wear my new jewelry from Scott's and the most comfy shoes on the planet.


My team and moderator Betsy Riley [editor in chief of Atlanta Magazine].  I was kind of glad to be at the end because by the time the question got to me it had already been answered and I got to give a short smarty pants answer that made no sense.

I have a reputation to keep right.....head back.....hearty laugh.

Anyway...enough about me.

I am working on a new project which includes 2 bathrooms, living room and master bedroom.

The bedroom has a small foyer that is begging for a party dress.....so with some big changes  you will come around the corner and stop in awe....haha.


First up is to remove the wallpaper and then I want to add some moulding to the doors.....something like these below.




With some pretty hardware by Emtek.


Now I guess you want to know what the wallpaper is going to be?



This gorgeous Thibaut paper which is the softest blueish gray....

For the ceiling I want to add crown moulding plus take out these can lights and replace with something pretty. 


All from Circa Lighting.


Are you feeling it?


On this wall I will add a beautiful mirror!



This one from Mirror Image Home is a favorite.

The bedroom is huge!  enough space for a sitting area and a chaise lounge over by a beautiful view.

More on that later!

But here is the tentative plan....

Very classic traditional!  I am trying to channel my inner Phoebe Howard......

I'm pumped about this one.....

Can you believe it's Friday? Big plans for the weekend?

A DAY AT SCOTT'S ANTIQUE MARKET






Last week was chock full of events.....I had a small office bookcase install and it was raining that day.

I walked out the front door..... carrying my bags of accessories headed down the front yard [wearing flip flops]....first mistake....and because the ground was wet and a little muddy [at the edge between the yard and driveway] I slipped....went down hard and heard the sound of broken glass.

Really?  Yeah....lost a few things in that fall....had to go in change pants and wash my feet.

Start over.  

I did manage to go to Scott's for a few hours on Friday so there's that bit of good news.

Let's discuss the good things I saw starting with these pretty rugs.

I stared  long and hard at this beautiful neutral beauty!







This guy is also over on Miami Circle [Art Rugs of Persia]

I wanted to meet the artist Scott Kerr but he personally couldn't make it this month.  I was glad to finally get a chance to see more of his art since I bought a large piece for a project [on Instagram!]. 

Can't wait till it arrives and is hung!








From across the room I spied all of this black and white goodness and I mowed people down to get over there.....







I've always said if there was a Starbucks at Scott's....and then I walked around a corner and saw this...

Finally....but of course it was after I had put some bad cafeteria food down my belly along with some crappy coffee.

And what is a Scott's blog post with out a few pillows right!






Both Lori and I found this pillow combo yummy!

A couple of cute vintage chairs




Just some pretty stuff.....





Mudcloth fabric for days....

And below this is what I purchased because I definitely need more black and white:)

#notreally

It's a new week.....and a new project which I am working hard at....[more on that later]

This is what I am doing on Thursday!

Which reminds me I need to get my act together:)

I am still so happy that my little Cami is healthy and for some reason with so much going on lately I took 2 weeks off from working out [never happens]

After going to Orange Theory yesterday my arms are so sore the only thing I can move are my fingers to type....hahaha.
