STOPPED ME IN MY SCROLL

Do you follow Molly In Maine on Instagram? If not, you definitely should! Her feed is filled will such beautiful inspiration.

Take this display of shells, for example. Oh my. Who ever knew that a collection of shells could be displayed so artfully. Just fabulous.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

This week’s outfit is brought to you by simple black and off white. It’s one of my favorite combos – it’s just so easy to wear. Plus you can dress the look up or down, depending upon the accessories you pair with it.

The tribal-look necklace was my inspiration for the whole outfit. Some of the pieces in the outfit are new, but others I’ve had for a while.

Since I couldn’t link everything that I’m wearing, I put together a mood board with images and links to the exact products I’m wearing or to similar ones.

WHAT I’M WATCHING OR READING

This past week we rented The Contractor, starring Chris Pine, and enjoyed it quite a bit. I give it a solid 3.5 stars.

RECENT PURCHASE I LOVE

I am swooning over these chairs that I recently purchased for the breakfast room! Ignore all of the stuff in the background, and just look at them!

They come in a set of 4 and are available in 12 different color and wood combinations. The link to shop them is below the image.

I think they’re going to look awesome with the fabric that I’m using in my breakfast room. I will say that my photo is a much better representation of what they look like in person.

ON THE HOME FRONT

Speaking of my breakfast room – if you saw last week’s Friday Favorites, you already know that I’m making some changes to my refresh plan. I’m so excited to see how it’s coming together!

You’ll find me camping out in my sewing room over the next several days making 6 draperies panels, for the huge bay window in that room, out of this yummy fabric. A friend and I were just talking about how glad we are to see pattern and color making a comeback in the world of home decor! Are you?

Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  1. Love the new chairs in blue (tattersall?) plaid. And your sewing room is spectacular. I appreciate your reviews of Instagram since I don’t subscribe. We watched Forest Gump again after many years and enjoyed it very much. Also the Memorial Day Concert via PBS on YouTube was especially moving and so so well done. I love the Pima Cotton boatneck top at Macy’s. I have many colors of those in Talbots but yours is a much better price. I don’t blog so I never changed from lots of color and pattern, which I love, to all neutrals. So I’m back in style again. 😂I think color and print is influenced by the pandemic like the depression did in the 30s with fiesta ware and bright fruit designs. People are just wanting happiness and joy.

  2. You look wonderful!
    Love the chairs and the fabric, can’t wait to follow your style.

  3. Those chairs are adorable, and I love the curtain fabric! Color and pattern never went out for me. I tried to sort of get on board with the neutral farmhouse look and bought a few pieces, but they never looked right with my more traditional colorful cottage style that I truly loved and still do Not that I usually care much about what’s trendy, unless it’s something I happened to like. I think that’s the important thing to remember about trends is to only buy if you truly love it and have the budget to make the change, and not because it’s what’s being promoted. I think what someone said about color and pattern (as well as granny chic style) is probably very true, in that hard times cause us to crave more color, pattern, and cozy.comfort in our surroundings!
