On holiday Monday’s I like to wake up slow… and while the 100% chill coffee mug may not be quite accurate (I’m more like, 75% chill, hah) it’s nice to take things slow every once in awhile.
I got so much positive feedback on my living room, that I decided to show you guys a little more of my house. Here is where I have my morning coffee – Folder’s, to be exact – in my favorite spot, ideal for a warm brew and a good book. This cute little patio overlooks the 3 tier garden in my backyard. Usually during the summer, there is loads of color, so I’ll have to show you guys the garden when it gets a bit warmer. Cassondra actually made the cute little potted plants that hang off the top patio – they were inspired by our favorite porch in New Orleans, which you can actually see right here! I love this area because it’s tranquil and serene and you really don’t feel like you’re in the heart of Hollywood.
I’m obsessed with layering this lightweight gray turtleneck underneath just about everything right now. It’s a good styling trick if you want to maximize your wardrobe, and make more summertime dresses, like this denim one, more appropriate for the cold. I also slipped on some cozy socks and oxfords that are so comfortable, they could be slippers. Perfect for lounging around the house! Shop my look in the gallery below – and let me know what you think of my patio and my look in the comments below!
