Friday, I'm In Love: Columbus, OH

Happy Friday! I already cannot wait for this day to be over so I can hop on a plane to Columbus - my home away from home! I have not been back since we moved to Georgia, and I cannot wait to see my amazing friends and this great city! :) Have a great weekend!

Rewined Candles are some of my favorites {the rosé and carmenere are amazing!}, and I couldn't resist buying the seasonal mimosa-scented one. We've almost completely burned it at this point, but not before enjoying it with some mimosas of our own! The best way to enjoy a wine-scented/mimosa-scented candle is with its corresponding drink :)

 Vince is one of those brands in fashion that is classic all-American with the right amount of edge. I came across this dress at T.J. Maxx, and it was such a great price {and so cute!} I had to have it. I LOVE Vince items, and look forward to adding more of their items to my closet :)

It's no secret that I love stripes for summer {see here}, and this outfit below is my ideal outfit for a summer afternoon: striped dress, nautical sandals, simple gold jewelry, and a large tote. How perfect is that dress!?

Friday, I'm In Love: Cabin Life

I've been so lucky to have been to the mountains of North Carolina twice this summer, and both times made me want to go back for more. We stayed in cabins {sort of} each time, and I loved the rustic feel. I want to go back in the fall when the leaves change, and maybe for a weekend in the winter for a cozy getaway :) Have a great weekend!

Farmer's Market Flowers

Farmer's markets are arguably my favorite thing about spring/summer, and one of the best parts of a farmer's market are the local fresh flowers. I can't help myself, every time I go I have to leave with some! Below are some flowers I've picked up at the Athens Farmer's Market this summer and even last summer; we are going this weekend after a few weeks of not being able to go and I can't wait to see what types of flowers they will have this time!

White + Gold: Cat Planter

 So it's pretty obvious that I love all things white + gold {much to my roommate's dismay}, and when Pottery Lodge {shop all here} had a brief discount on their products, I had to have this tiny cat planter {similar here}.  Ever since Ezra walked into our lives, I have been loving cat-themed products much more, and this is the perfect addition to my ceramic collection. All it needs is some peonies to hold :)

Summer Getaway

I came across this gorgeous photo on one of my favorite blogs {This Is Glamorous}, and it immediately made me want to take a French vacation! I love the idea of a straw summer hat, a pretty picnic blanket, and a basket filled with delicious French bread and pastries {and wine..}. Here are some items and accessories that I would include on this ideal summer getaway:

Friday, I'm In Love: College Town

Happy Friday! I really love living in a college town {minus the traffic during the school year...}, and it wasn't until recently that we took a long walk around campus. University of Georgia is beautiful, and I hope taking a walk around its campus becomes a tradition we continue :) Have a great weekend!

Fuschia Bag

A few years ago, I spotted this incredible pink/fuschia handbag {by Renato Angi} at T.J. Maxx and I knew I had to have it. The size of this bag makes it perfect for everyday wear, but not necessarily the color; this probably would have been more practical in black or some shade of brown, but the color is my favorite part! I never regretted buying this bag, and it's one of my favorite bags I own :)

Vintage + Peonies

I FINALLY found peonies in Athens a few weeks ago {Kroger..on major sale}, so I grabbed 3 bouquets of course. I had a few vases to choose from, but I thought they would look perfect in these vintage crystal vases; I love that all three are different height, and how perfect they look on this end table. If only peonies could be available all year round!

Friday, I'm In Love: Green Thumb

Happy Friday! I know basically nothing about gardening/growing flowers or herbs/anything to do with keeping a living plant alive, but I have been making an attempt this summer! Back in the spring I bought a little sunflower plant at the Athens Farmer's Market, but doubted that I would be able to keep it alive. Well, I {or my boyfriend} did something right because a few weeks ago it bloomed! Prettiest sunflower I've ever seen :)

Office Chic

Whenever I see the incredibly chic offices of all of the amazing fashion bloggers out there, it not only makes me want an office like that, but it makes me believe that if I had one I would be so much more productive {ha, probably not}. I don't have room for an office, but I love the idea of a chic and creative space complete with awesome desk accessories and an inspiration board. Below is my inspiration for the perfect office/desk {images via Winifred Paper and The Glitter Guide}:

Gold + White: Jewelry Storage

I've tried to get creative with jewelry storage; I wanted to work with furniture/storage that I already had {and paint it gold, obviously}, but also incorporate some new pieces that are pretty to display {like this gold and white bowl - so excited to have a Helen Levi piece! Shop here} This is just one part of a DIY makeover at home, more photos and ideas {and pathetic attempts?} to come! {rings: shop at Catbird NYC}
