LAKE HOUSE BEFORE AND AFTER





That was a fun fashion post with my good friends!  Cindy, Mary Ann and Annie always bring it so if you did not go check out their inspiration on spring fashion you need to....

I realize I have not posted about my project on Lake Keowee!  The client is one of my besties sister and it was so much fun as I really tried to work with a lot of what she had.  They downsized in Charlotte and what did not fit in her old house she brought to the lake.


Next up was finding something to go on the gigantic wall behind the dining table!


This was before we order the new custom table and chairs.....

Below I also added a rug to warm things up.




I sent her a lot of ideas....wallpaper, a mural, a hand painted mural, shiplap, a large piece of art.....do I need to go on?

The last thing I sent her were these bird prints.  She said is was a "maybe"...and then "crickets"....




So I kept thinking but 6 months later she texted me and said the bird prints were a go....haha.


The day I arrived to get them hung and work on 2 bedrooms!


Laying them out for the installer....


And they look SO GOOD!  Everybody was happy!

The next area to tackle was the guest room!  


She had her curtain installers hang the hardware a long time ago....  We decided to keep the bed and lamps.  Blue was the theme so lets take a look at how it went!
Below was before the curtains and shams arrived.....


I ordered 2 new nightstands...


The curtains and shams came 2 days after I left so she sent me a few pictures.....


I love the check curtains so much!




And there you have it:)  We did not completely start over but the changes created a big impact...do you agree?

I have another bedroom to show you but it is time to walk Cami now and of course she takes priority!

SPRING FASHION




So I got roped into a spring fashion post...and I don't mean that in a bad way....just a "put off until the last minute way" Ha Ha.

Spring in Georgia can last a month or 2 days.  No kidding......

If you want to wear cute linen jackets and light sweaters you better not save anything cause it will be 90 degrees before you know it.

The reason I like spring and summer clothes is that they are usually less expensive and I don't mind buying something trendy....as I will rarely keep it for a long time like I do with wool or nicer items.

Sunday I tried on so many outfits that by the end my hair was a mess and because I am not a type A personality I just went with it....

First up is this cute sundress which I pared with a thrifted mens suit jacket!  I probably won't get much wear out of it because it will be too hot for the jacket soon.....and you know...my old arms might scare somebody:)


Then I got a wild hair and decided to cut off some denim that I had gotten really cheap at Gap a few years ago!


I was being really "fashion designery" and decided to leave a big cuff....not sure what I was thinking but it seemed to dress them up a little:)


The jean jacket is old Target and I thrifted the stripe sweater.  I got the sneakers a while back!


I have had this shirt forever [Banana Republic] and it has little lemons on it which I adore....The sweater is from Quince and I got the sandals from TJ Maxx!



Love it with my navy thrifted jacket and stripe shirt....what is more classic right?  

I mean let's dress it up a little!  The stripe sleeveless top is from H&M and the shirt was thrifted.  The sandals are Dolce Vita


The top is from H&M...pretty recent and the shoes are also Dolce Vita.

Below are some past OOTD post that are still a current look in my opinion....look around in your closet...I bet you can recreate all of these looks!




Even on days when I am not seeing clients I still like to make my casual clothes a little presentable:)

Below are some basics that I put together for you!  I linked everything on my Like To Know It


You are in luck today because my good friends are joining me.....you are going to have plenty of inspiration!


So check out what they have to say about Spring Fashion!
