MK - I Love You!

Who is MK? My man...Michael Kors! :-) I have been a huge fan of his clothing, bags and accessories for years and my love just keeps on growing. I just got back from a fantastically fun girls shopping weekend in Seattle. We had a great time hitting the shopping trails and realized we're not much of night owls anymore ending up with 3 large pizza's and vino in our room at 8PM - a perfect evening actually!

Okay, back to Michael (Kors that is...). I scored a beautiful and functional sweater with toggles that will be my go-to for this fall. I pulled out my brown MK bag from last winter and feel ready to go. I love his mix of classic with the trends. Here are a few of some my other faves. Enjoy...

Cream belted coat...lovely!

Kinda addicted to a cross body bag

Some Home Lovin...

You know when you're drawn to something but it's not your 'normal' so you don't take note that this may be something you like or a reason you're drawn to it. Or am I making no sense here? I'm probably making no sense so let me explain. Over the past year I really have come to notice what seems true for me in life. Whether that be things I enjoy with my family, hobbies, activities, what and who makes me joyful etc, etc. So this rant now comes down to something quite frivolous. I'm realizing that my style in home decor seems to be taking a bit of a shift. A shift I've been in denial of (oh, the drama! :).

I'm inspired lately by a more eclectic look. Maybe it has to do with the fact we have little girlies and I kinda think the constant chaos happening in my house might blend in with this look. Here are a few photos that were on Danielle Oakey's blog from Lonny that have inspired me to get out of my 'style denial' and put it out there that I'm having some home lovin over this look. Do you like? Enjoy...

All white (as I love it) and my favourite thing is the kids art work hung by the bed, how perfect!

Open shelving - need me some open shelving.

Great wall paper and art wall

Love the low bookshelf along the wall and the mix of textures in this room

Family Photos!

This summer we had family photos done by the very talented photographer Meagan of Meagan Baker Photography. I was so excited to have my little family captured in pictures and am in the process of finally displaying them in our home. Here are a few shots of me, hubby and the girlies. I love how they turned out! Be sure to check out Meagan's work if you're looking for family photos! Enjoy...
