Ninety percent of my closet consists of J. Crew, so it shouldn't come as any surprise that I am a Jenna Lyons fangirl. Her style is amazing not to mention attainable. Who doesn't have the pieces in their closet to recreate this look.

I have suddenly developed a passion for interior decorating. I have been focusing much of this year on several home improvement projects that were sorely needed. I have lived in my home for about 6 years and it was time to do some painting, upgrade some utilities and just commit to an overall 'lived in' look for my home.
I decided to tackle the two smallest rooms in my home on my own, so I painted them and did some low budget decorating. I would first like to say that Ikea and The Container Store are great shopping solutions for interior decor for small spaces. I got my desk and file cabinet from Ikea and the lucite desk accessories from the Container store. The lucite chair that you see is from Wayfair.com. I use Wayfair to add smaller more interesting pieces in my spaces. I like to think of them as 'conversation pieces'. They have awesome sales and the shipping is usually fast and cheap.
The biggest advice I have for decorating smaller spaces is not to use a lot of wood furniture. I am a big fan of wooden furniture and interesting carpentry but these can be bulky and clutter a space if not incorporated properly. I decided to stick with an all white palette and throw some lucite accessories mainly to give the smaller space a more open feel.
You can't really see from these photos but this room is also where I kennel my two dogs, so I was relegated to one wall to make this office space happen. I maximized space with floating shelves and buying furniture that had plenty of drawer space as well.

I am absolutely loving what I am seeing from the Resort collections. If you consistently follow my blog you may recognize the usual suspects with BCBG Max Azria, Proenza Schouler, Burberry Prorsum and Chloe. However, I absolutely had to include that Fendi collection this go round. I usually love accessories out of the major fashion houses like Fendi and Louis Vuitton and am not very partial to their RTW showings. My aesthetic is more minimalist with a touch of modern luxe. I love structured pieces and clothing that translates well into everyday looks. Fendi doesn't usually fit into my aesthetic but the '15 Resort collection was just too beautiful to not acknowledge. Sometimes you have to appreciate the artistry in a designer's collection.
