West Elm has to be my all time favorite place to shop for the home. I just love their modern, yet earthy vibe. So when I needed a little retail therapy yesterday (tough day at work), I decided to drop into their store near Columbus Circle on my way home.
I was not disappointed! I’m generally more of an online shopper, but you really can’t beat an in-store experience, especially when shopping for the home.
Their styling is really spot on right now. Check out this amazing wall constructed out of logs. It gave the store a log cabin vibe.
My number one thing to shop for at West Elm has to be their accessories, so I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of my favorites from the store.
For some reason I thought this Rhino Object was a pig in the store! Rhino or pig, I love it either way.
I couldn’t find these Geode Bookends online, but I am obsessed! I am definitely going back for a pair – they are a steal at $14 each. They also had a set of Geode Coasters in the store, which were also amazing.
These Rewined Candles were so cool. They are made from recycled wine bottles and smell wonderful.
We need a desk lamp, and this Industrial Task Table Lamp is at the top of my list. It comes in a lot of fun colors. I love how it was displayed with the books.
West Elm always has the best vases. This display had a great layered look. There’s a lot going on here, but it’s organized and uncluttered.
These Metal Wrapped Frames are really nice in person, and how cute are those dog silhouettes? Show your pet a little love!
I loved everything about this table setting. I’m especially enamored with this Greenhouse Terrarium – it’s at the top of my fall shopping list.
Happy Friday! Did you have a good week? Mine was intense, busy, and quick.
Last night, I went to an Ann Taylor/Birchbox event. This is what happens when you drag your husband to these kinds of events:
It was a little crazy in there, and unfortunately, they were already out of Birchboxes when we arrived. Boo! He was a little happier after a glass of champers though.These were my favorite items from Ann Taylor (hello, fall wish list!):
Every year around this time, I start to think about going back to school. I guess it’s natural since I spent so many years there, but it’s been a long time since I actually hit the books!
This is the annual “back to school” picture that my sister and I posed for every year with our neighbors. That’s me in the middle with the blond hair, puffy sleeves, and yes, a mullet. It was the eighties, what can I say?
Thankfully, the mullet is gone, but my desire for a new fall wardrobe is not. So, how about we pretend we are going back to school and do a little shopping?
Although inspired by school, this outfit is 100% grown-up!
