It's the end of May already and time to share things that have captured my heart for this month. It's been a really busy month because of my mother's recent knee surgery and my step son's upcoming high school graduation and pending college departure. Lots of changes to come.
There have been a few things that I have been able to enjoy this month. It's been a great month for our yard! Everything is blooming and our grass is so GREEN! It's lovely.
First has been this wonderful faux floral spring wreath that I found at At Home. It's a home decor store here in my city. The flowers are fake but the sticks are real which helps pull the look together. It looks great hung up on our porch.
Next, are my crystal jug dispensers that I found at TJ Maxx. They looked so great on the table and worked wonderfully! I loved having my fruit infused water! It was a big hit at my step son's Open House!
Third, was filming my faux floral arrangements video. I loved having all my arrangments in one place. It was glorious if only for a moment. If you have not seen my video you may view it below.
Fourth, are my Chanel inspired brooches. Boy, these are head turners. Every time I wear one of these someone is always staring at it. I don't know what they are thinking but they sure do stare. I think they are so elegant and elevate an outfit quickly. You should check out Etsy to find one.
Fifth, is the new decor items in my office. I adore my new Ralph Lauren floral pillows. I wish I could share a link for these but I found them at Homegoods.
Sixth and I think I may have mentioned this before has been my at home salmon, lime and dill meals. Oh my goodness, after a long day at the office, I love coming home lighting my candles, putting some french bread in the oven, munching on that and then putting my salmon and veggies in the oven to cook. It is a wonderful way to end my work day and start my wonderful evening at home.
Seventh on the list are my new purse accessories. I love these and have been putting them on pretty much all of my handbags. They look great on all of them. I hope some of you were able to purchase these. They are a great and elegant find.
And last but not least is a quick update on my recent Ann Taylor orders. So I received my pink skirt and it was way too short so I went to Ann Taylor this weekend to exchange it for something else. I found this great embroidered polka dot scarf. It was only $12 in the store and these striped leather slingbacks were also on sale for only $35!
I also picked up this drapery cami and this great boyfriend cardigan. Both are very chic and will be great additions to my wardrobe. I am much happier with these purchases than with the pink skirt. It was lovely but a little too short for me.
May was a great month. I hate seeing these months slip away like this but I am trying to embrace my moments more and take it all in. Enjoy life!
