Target Sequin Leggings: a casual look

So I am still anti-pants with zippers but want to still look cute and put together! I love love love causal joggers but wanted something with a little more glamour! Enter these sparkly, comfortable, elastic waist joggers from Target $22. These are perfect for dressing up but I wanted to style them for an easy everyday look. This green military inspired drawstring jacket has been on my bod constantly since I found it at Tjmaxx for $23! Purse Olivia and Joy $39.

Neutral vest

Fashion vests
Vests have excellent layering capabilities and give an instant spiff to your outfit. Vesta are some of those pieces that can transform your clothes into multiple outfits. I loved the feel of this faux suede vest from Tjmaxx $16.99

Baby Boy Nursery: Gray, navy and pops of yellow

After years of designing nurseries I was so excited to finally design my own!
I started with picking paint I wanted a blue-gray for the walls and Benjamin Moore Silvery Moon 1604 was the perfect choice for walls in a nursery where I'll read Goodnight Moon countless times. For the ceiling I choose Benjamin Moore Hale Navy - a deep blue-black that made a great contracting backdrop for the silver gray star decals I purchased from Urban Walls $39 for a package of 50 stars. 

Micheal's Studio Decor Marquee Star was $39.99 but I got it on sale for $19.99

I looked high and low on etsy for a wooden name wall decor piece that wasn't absurdly expensive. 
Thank goodness I stumbled across Moon Snail Creations $45 dollars for a large wooden name with lots of options for color and font! 

I bought this dresser for $50! It was white and I painted it with Annie Sloan chalk paint. Chalk paint is a versatile paint that would works beautifully on furniture without priming or sanding. It's easy to use and quick to dry! I purchased the paint at an adorable shop in old town Norcross called Chalk it Up

For the hardware I found these navy and white knobs at Hobby Lobby for 50% off.

Instead of a bookshelves I found these great picture frame ledges at Ikea a steal at $5.99 each! 

White frames $10 each from Hobby Lobby. I found these in the table frame section and just ripped off the back stands. They were originally $19.99 but frames are always 50% off at Hobby Lobby.

I had been looking for a lamp under $40 that was unique and had some whimsy but had a hard time finding something I liked. I found this clear vase lamp at Homegoods $39 that you can fill with whatever you like! I choose this adorable little hedgehog stuffed animal. I like that as he grows we can re-fill it with different things!

A great place for kid storage is Homegoods, great selection and cheaper then target!
I got this for $5.99!
