  The classic design with the central medallion is exactly what we had in mind but the worn-in look and the multiple color options available proved to be both a blessing and a curse. For us, the cobalt version was a favorite because of the hints of orange in the details that seemed perfect for our bright nightstands – but really, I think we could have ended up with the grey and teal or pink and been equally as happy. In the end we went with the blue it felt like the most classic color to be in a bedroom and I knew that we wouldn’t tire of…

  Do you guys read reviews? I’m addicted to them – especially when it comes to beauty and skin products. God bless the people who take the time to write about whether an item proved to live up to its hype, did what it promised, and was worth the cost. I’ve avoided a lot of unnecessary purchases and been able to compare and contrast similar products I’ve been torn between just by reading what fellow beauty junkies on Nordstrom and Sephora have to say. Even with all my online review reading, I still prefer to buy my skin and beauty…

Three Beachy Looks http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/05/22/three-beachy-looks/ http://apieceoftoastblog.com/2015/05/22/three-beachy-looks/#comments Fri, 22 May 2015 20:13:24 +0000 http://apieceoftoastblog.com/?p=23399

  When I did a massive closet clean-out before my move I noted that I don’t wear or buy a ton of prints and patterns. There’s nothing wrong with this – I’m glad I know what I gravitate towards because it makes me purchase what I’ll wear the most – but I also felt the itch for some variety. I love white (most of you should know about my white shirt addiction by now) so I told myself that if I saw a not-too-loud-or-busy print with a mostly white background that I should bring it into the closet fold of…

  Emily said the overall color of the tote could be any hue but I wanted to stick with white since those tend to be my favorite. Once that was determined, I came up with separate four color stories I really liked and paired each with a different embroidered or appliqué idea. Clearly, we landed on a Hearts + Stripes design and I love how the colors came out. In case anyone cares to know what other three ideas were, it was: 1) a donut appliqué with pinks and reds, 2) “señorita” embroidered in a navy with an aqua bottom stripe, and…
