I’m back from High Point Market and very excited to be kicking off a new project that is under wraps, but that I can’t wait to share with you all! I ran into a few friends at #HPMKT and most of the conversations went a little like this: “OMG is this your first High Point?? You must be OVERWHELMED!”. One friend’s advice was: “start drinking early, and often”)! While yes, High Point Market is exhausting AND overwhelming (I walked the halls for 3 full days and still only feel like I barely saw 10% of showrooms)—it’s also exhilarating. The inspiration, the connections you make and the talented people you meet all make up for the blistered feet, the back pain that comes from shlepping around hundreds of catalogs & gift bags AND the wardrobe malfunctions (note to self— High Point, NC is a windy place; flowy skirts are NOT a good idea).
After turning 28 last week, I feel excited about the future, especially after my weekend at High Point. I definitely don’t have everything figured out in my personal or professional life, but I’m happy about what I’ve accomplished so far, and I like the direction I’m heading. I could go on and on about the details, but I feel like Molly’s birthday post (who turned 27 six days after me) pretty much sums up where I’m at and how I feel about growing a year older. So here’s to taking it one day at a time.
Serena & Lily is offering 30% off 300+ items! Definitely check out this bedding, this quilt, these barstools, this bar cart, this coffee table (I have the light wood dining table version and I love it), these dip dye stools, this dhurrie rug, this herringbone throw and this double sconce.
J.Crew is offering 25% off full-price styles this weekend with the code TGIFALL. I recently ordered these jeans and this shirt and I’m obsessed. Also on my wishlist is this sweater, this shirt, these jeans and this coat.
Kiesza launched her new album Sound of a Woman and I’m listening to it on repeat. So. Good.
Michael C. Hall (a.k.a. Dexter)’s house is great, especially this little corner of heaven.

In case you’re wondering, this was my most repinned image this week.
One thing that will completely transform the way you cook.
Speaking of cooking, I made this one-pot dish last night.
Bailey’s country house plans are out of this world.
