Pom Poms and Prints

The end of summer means daydreaming about back to school clothes, school supplies and how to decorate and organize my room for the upcoming school year. For decor inspiration I turn to Etsy. Those of you who are familiar know that you can find some of the neatest things, but will have to hunt a little to find them. Here are a few tips for navigating your way:
1. Create an account- that way you can mark your items as "favorites" and revisit them later.
2. When you find an item you like, check out the seller's personal favorite items. If they're making something you like, they probably have similar taste.
3. Seller doesn't have any favorites listed? Check our their circles instead.

A few of my favorite shops:

A few items you might just find in my room this year

Pom pom poofs above my bed for a burst of color...

Adorable thank you notes

Polka dot magnets for the fridge

These sticks will go perfectly with a new jewel tone vase I purchased at TJ Maxx

Lastly, an inspirational reminder to do what you love every day.

Good luck!

A Fall Must

J Crew recently debuted their Fall 2011 collection. After scouring their new arrivals twice (...okay three times) I had to wipe the drool off of my chin. Brightly colored capris and cords, color blocking, jewel tones and lipstick from neutral to bold are all things to focus on this fall season. The last trend to keep in mind is LEOPARD. If you know me at all you know this is a personal favorite of mine and my obsession is only growing. Below are a few items to get you started on your leopard print search. Do yourself a favor, pick an item out and sport it like crazy.

{Target also has a leopard belt in stores, but I was unable to find it online)

{A less expensive option found here}

If you're feeling especially bold, pair your leopard print with another pattern, like a stripe. Photo from Atlantic-Pacific

Have a wonderful weekend!

Seriously could not stop smelling my wrist after my test run at Sephora. Love you, Kate.
