There is nothing better than an easy and fun DIY that will keep you trendy and cool in your daily life. This is it!! Iron on patches are your answer. Grab a new or old jacket (I got this army style one from Zara) and choose some colorful and interesting patches (Etsy has some great sources- Wildflower and Company Extreme Largeness, PatchNation) Let your creative juices flow.....place them and then iron them on! That's it! Take a look at my jacket creation (and my daughter's jean jacket as well!)
These uber chic tabletop accessories by Comunione are the perfect little gems that will make your gatherings sparkle. These 80's inspired pieces handcrafterd in NY are result of a collaboration between jewelry designer Pili Restrepo and interior designer Laura Panebianco. I love the brass, the shapes, the color palettes. They are works of art in themselves. They make the perfect special gift and also an heirloom addition for yourself. I mean...this cake server below is everything and so are the appetizer forks above!
So very beautiful right? As in you need them stat, am I right? Keep swooning here.

Theoretically fall is around the corner, yet this Texas heat is killing us all. It feels hotter than certain days of summer even. All I can think about is how lovely it will be to dress in layers when it gets cooler and in cuddling up to a good book in a cozy nook (like the one above) when the weather starts to turn. I hope it is feeling cooler in your neck of the woods. Some links for your weekend reading-
