My Favorite Rugs Right Now

As you may know, I have been obsessed with decorating as of late. I am moving in a few weeks, and this means I get to decorate a whole new space! I have been shopping a ton, but like most of you I am on a budget. Putting a deposit down, paying rent & moving costs are expensive. Here are some of my absolute favorite rugs that won't empty your bank account.

This rug from overstock is perfect for a beachy, boho, or super chic room. I love the neutral colors and am even more obsessed with all the texture and patterns.

I have this rug and in my current living room it is just the pop of color we needed with the neutral furniture colors we have. World Market sure has some great steals! Be sure to find one of their coupons that they send out monthly!

Do you have a desk or reading area that needs a little help? This faux-hyde rug is perfect! I am obsessed and need to find space for one of my own.
Can I have ALL THE RUGS? This one reminds me of one from West Elm that I wanted for $1300. Well, lets just say this is just as cute for a fraction of the cost. If you have a colorful space, a neutral rug is great!

This rug is so fun! It's perfect to add a touch of color if you have a very neutral space OR you can add it to a room that has a ton of color to make it extra WILD. If I had a kids room, I would most likely place this there #oneday.

This rug is super cute and I just love this vintage Etsy shop! This rug can pretty much work anywhere, but I love how they used it in an entry way in the above photo.

THANK YOU TARGET. This rug is just what the doctor ordered. Chevron + orange = Heaven. I love chevron anything and this rug brings back the 70s for me. Place a cute coffee table in the middle or a desk on top and you're all set!

I love this finely woven boho rug. It looks super neutral, but if you take a peek up close there's tons of color.

Does your bathroom or vanity area need a makeover? These cute rugs are perfect! I love the fact that you can just layer them and mix match them to make an area of your home extra bright!

This smaller rug is perfect to add next to your bed, near your sink or in your entry way to your home. I love the design and think it brings a ton of fun in to a boring room.

I love southwestern style rugs. This one happens to be one of my favorites- the color palette is right up my alley. I can envision this rug with a lot of brass around it and a leather chair or couch sitting nearby.

Are you more of a girly girl and want your space to be very pretty and chic? This rug is perfect for you. It's beautiful and elegant. I love it!

They keep coming! How cute is this one? I can't get enough. The color, pattern.. perfection.

These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

I live in San Francisco. There is NO WAY that I can wear stilettos and 6 inch boots out on the town. I walk everywhere, so comfort is crucial. I, however, am not willing to sacrifice cuteness for comfort. I pretty much search for that unicorn boot. I want it to be beautiful and bearable. Here's my favorite boots this season that won't have you counting down the hour till you can take them off.

Vince Camuto- Over the knee boot
I bought my first pair of Vince Camuto boots last year and they are definitely my most worn boot. They are pretty tall, but I can wear them all day. I love love love them. These boots are perfect to rock this fall and winter with a long sleeve shift dress or jeans and a sweater.

Vince- Easton Bootie
This shoe is perfect for this fall. It's my favorite going out bootie. I wear it out on the town, to baseball games & even to work. They are on the taller end for me, but quite comfy.

Sam Edelman: Petty "Chelsea" Bootie
I wore this bootie to work most days last year. They are the most comfortable booties I own and go with just about everything. I definitely recommend grabbing these in one of the colors you wear the most, because you'll get great use out of them.

Jeffrey Campbell: Cromwell
This bootie is by far the edgiest I own. Jeffrey Campbell kills it with his booties, and this one is SO comfy. I wear this boot to work all the time and can walk all day without my feet getting tired.

Rachel Comey- Mars Bootie
If you need the perfect day-to-day black bootie, look no further. Rachel Comey makes an amazing boot, and this one is my absolute favorite. It is a must-have for all my styling clients and it is such a well made shoe.

Isabel Marant- Dicker Boot
This boot by Isabel Marant is a designer staple. It is on the pricier end, but keep an eye out and you may find them on sale! This boot is the most comfortable heeled boot I own.

Acne Studios: Chelsea Bootie
This bootie is on my wish list. I've tried them on quite a few times and hope to own them one day. I love the metal detail on the toe, and the texture of the black leather.

Joie: Barlow Suede Bootie
This flat boot by Joie is really amazing. It is easy to slide on and you can walk around for hours in them. This boot comes in all the staple colors, so if you're looking for a super easy "go with everything" type of boot this may be the boot for you. 

Urban Outfitters: Short Suede Boot
This boot is not only super fun and cute, but super affordable. This green is super in this fall and I can't get enough!

Feelin' Like Fall

Outfit details: Sweater: Vintage Stella McCartney, Jeans: Red Engine, Boots: Vince Camuto, similar)

Fall is becoming one of my favorite seasons. In San Francisco it's pretty warm and sunny during the day, but cool and crisp in the mornings and evenings. Just how I like it. Fall has always been my favorite season to dress for. Booties and sweaters are my jam. I think every girl needs a pair of boots she loves and an awesome go-to sweater. Here are some of my current sweater obsessions for this season.


Stella McCartney- Asymmetrical Wool Sweater
If I were rich, this sweater would be my top choice. I am completely obsessed with this pale peach asymmetrical sweater by Stella McCartney. I tried it on, and was practically drooling. 

Vince- Shawl Collar Cardigan
I die for this sweater. It is beautiful. It is perfection. The color, the chunkiness, and the length. This sweater is perfect to keep you warm on your walk to work, would pair perfectly with a black top and skinnies on a night out, but also be the perfect sweater to cuddle up with in PJ's next to the fire place.

Club Monaco- Yasamin Sweater 
This sweater is perfect with some black skinnies and black booties. It is SUPER warm, so make sure you save it for a really chilly day.

Zara- Embroidered Sweater
How fun is this sweater? It is for sure a statement piece, and I just love the way it drapes. Throw this one of with trousers, with a pencil skirt & heels, or with skinnies and booties! It's super versatile. 

Vince- Colorblock Rib Circle Cardigan
This sweater is stunning. I purchased this for a client, and let me tell you it is worth every penny. It is so detailed and different. It makes the simplest outfit look trendy and fashionable. It's definitely a winner in my book.

A.L.C.- Saxton Sweater
This burnt orange knit is sooo perfect for Fall I can't even handle it. Look at the detail on the backside! It's perfect with some nude boots and light denim.
Club Monaco- Cristina Cashmere Cardigan
This sweater is perfect to toss over any simple outfit. Throw this sweater on and layer it with a chunky scarf and you're good to go!
Aritzia- Serment Sweater
I just love this color. Everyone needs a chunky pull-over sweater, and this one by Wilfred is awesome. Just a heads up this style will look better on your more athletic or straight up and down build rather than curvy!

Urban Outfitters- Sunny Surplice Sweater
I bought this sweater the other day and love it. It is perfect for work, lounging at home, or to throw over your yoga outfit.

Vince- Wool Blend Turtleneck
Turtlenecks are back and they're coming in strong. This winter white sweater is amazing. It makes an outfit, so feel free to dress it up or down with accessories.

Bronzed Living: My favorite brassy and gold pieces

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am working on redecorating my San Francisco apartment. I pretty much go with lots of neutrals and spice things up with a ton of statement pieces. Right now, I am full-blown obsessed with bronze/gold/brass and I have found some seriously to die for pieces that I couldn't wait to share with you. Most of these pieces I have looked for for months and over time purchased, others are still on my "want" list and I am eyeballing them. Are you as obsessed as I am?

Bronze Bison Skull Mount:
This skull mount was one of my favorite purchases i've made since redecorating my space. It is SO me and I love that it is ceramic and not an actual skull.

Brass Candle:
I love my candle by The Wicked Boheme. It not only smells amazing, but it's beautiful and looks great right next to my bed. I also can't wait to repurpose it once the candle is out as a makeup brush holder.

Bronze Wall Shelf:
I bought this shelf and immediately put it to use. I use mine to store all my hair products, lotions, perfumes and face products. It is so cute and I get tons of compliments on it.

Brass Cactus Planter:
I have a cute marble coffee table that needed some character. What better than these copper planters?

Brass Peace Sign:
If you know me you know that I am all about good vibes. I have been eyeing this peace sign, and I am waiting patiently to get it. I have a rule with things on the pricier side. If you like it still after 2 months, then you can buy it.

Brass Inlay Cheese Platter:
I make one mean cheese plate. It's important when I'm entertaining I have a beautiful platter to serve my delicious food on. How cute is this one?

Jewelry Box:
This brass jewelry box is perfect for a bedside table. I love mine and also love how affordable it is.

Rose Brass and Marble Tray:

This classy tray is perfect to bring a little class and style to your boring coffee table. I love placing a nice candle on this as a centerpiece.

Gold Pineapple Jar:
How cute is this jar? Stop it! I can't help but lose it over how cute this is and how much personality it brings in to a space! This is perfect to add in your kitchen or on your favorite book shelf!
