Winter/Spring Weekend Wishlist

February brings out the most bipolar reactions in me. Half of me is dancing and singing, "Spring is here! Spring is here!" while the other, more pragmatic side, mutters glumly, "Not for another few months, dummy." This split personality is very much reflected in my current wishlist:

Winter/Spring Weekend Wishlist

Notable Mentions: Winter

  • I want that watch in a bad, bad way. So pretty! So versatile! Goes with everything! For the low low price of...$225.
  • Which brings me to my second point...would you believe me if I told you that the bra, green dress, grey sweater, and leggings could all be had for less than the price of the watch? 'Tis true. You could also buy the black boxgold table, mirror, and decanter  for even less. So although it's such a pretty piece, I'm not sure whether the watch is worth a whole outfit or a bar setup?
  • Since falling in love with my pink sarong trousers from Zara, I've had my eye on the same style in a different color. At $38, this black Asos option seems like a must-buy, right?
  • Thanks to a generous Christmas gift card and a 20% off coupon, these awesome black booties from Lulus are on their way to me! Total cost? $89 instead of $159!
  • I'm obsessssssed with the bottle-green color of these booties!
Notable Mentions: Spring
  • I want those watercolor leggings in the WORST way. So cheery!
  • That green pillow is less than $7!
  • I love the vibrant kelly green of that Bungalow5 dresser; I think the style could be hacked from an Ikea Rast dresser and an Ikea Lack table...for $40 plus paint and hardware.
What's on your wishlist this weekend? Maybe some Hunter wellies to combat all our rainy weather?

Gorgeous boho-greenhouse home love!

Since the mainstream onset of Pinterest, I rarely feature full home tours on my blog anymore, because I feel like so many tours are readily available via Pinterest and I don't want to be redundant. However, I recently ran across this home on the One Kings Lane blog and fell completely in love. I haven't seen many of these images before, so I thought I'd share in case you, too, have missed this complete gem of a home!

I mean. Seriously. This image alone immediately made its way to my "when I design my dream home" Pinterest board. LOVE the solarium windows and how the room is one giant live/work/eat/play space. The abundance of plants bring the outdoors in, even more so than the giant beautiful windows do!

I've been on the lookout for the exact bamboo dining chairs featured here, so I'm definitely drooling over this image.

Look at that funky circle chair! The pillows are small rugs sewn into cushion covers.

That vine grows directly on the wall (!!!!) Talk about camouflaging the TV!

Love the unique color of the kitchen cabinets, and the French doors leading outside

How fun is this boy's room? It's young and fun but all of the pieces can transition well over the years.

Another fun bedroom, the hot pink bookcase makes all of the items really pop.

To add insult to injury, the owner Katie Tarses is beautiful too. 

Major home envy over here!! To see more details on the topic, see the whole post here.
