Friday Favorites/Fashion

Happy Friday everyone!  I have so many fun favorites to share today!  Along with some past favorites that are on sale!  Is anyone else getting excited for Fall decorating?  We are still in summer mode around here (my kids have one more week off before school starts!) but I’m so looking forward to cooler days and pumpkin spice everything.  I have been on the hunt for a navy throw for this living room chair for almost a year now!  Finally found “the one.” :)

LOVE the subtle herringbone pattern on this navy throw from Pottery Barn.  Perfect for curling up in the Fall with a good book.  Or for just looking pretty sitting on my chair.  I’ll take either. :)

On a sidenote.. I’ve had so many questions about where I got the silver tray on my coffee table in my formal living room.  It was a home goods find but I found one almost identical on-line for those of you who were interested.  Love this tray.
I also love this silver tray and found a match for it too!

{Glass Serving Tray}  It also comes in gold.  So pretty.  I have a lot of trays but these two are my favorites!

I don’t think this tray will ever leave my powder bathroom.  I love it there so much.  Especially when I have it filled with fresh flowers.
Also for those of you who have asked for a ladder source, I linked to two similar options above.  For wallpaper info. shoot me an e-mail!
Ok.. another new favorite.  You know I’ve also been on the hunt for some sort of pot to put my faux fiddle leaf fig inside.  I finally decided on this fun beachcomber basket.  All of the beachcomber baskets are marked down right now so I scooped one up!  This is the large tote.
Love the look of the basket!  And this faux fig becomes more of a favorite of mine every day.  We have been on the go so much this summer and I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to walk into my house and see this tree looking perfect after a trip!  I’ve killed so many real plants during our travels.  I am all about low maintenance these days.  And I sort of want to eventually replace every real plant I own with a fake one.  Is that bad?  #plantkiller #admittingitisthefirststep
Some of my favorite summer pillows are on sale right now!  In fact, this weekend Pottery Barn is having 30% off and free shipping on ALL pillows!  It’s a pillow party!  I want us to all be invited. :)

Favorite summer pillows on sale..

And here are some fun new favorites they are getting in for Fall!  Pumpkin pillows.. yes please! (Enter code PILLOWS to get 30% off)

I bought a new keychain from Anthro and I love it.  Just like I love everything from Anthro.
And speaking of Anthro.. my sweet friend Kelley gave me and all of our friends this beautiful coaster from Anthro with our initials on it when we arrived in Atlanta for the Haven conference.  She also had notepads engraved with our blog names made for each one of us to welcome us to her state.  So sweet of her!  They are treasures to me and will always remind me of that fun weekend.  Did I mention to you all that when I was in Atlanta I tried Grits for the first time!?  They were so good!  You don’t see Grits in southern Cal. :)  By the end of the trip I was a true converted fan.  I even pulled out a few y’alls for good measure.  Took me right back to my time spent in Virginia.  Just call me a southern belle.  ;)
I bought a TO DO LIST stamp.
And another cute TO DO TODAY notepad.  Is anyone surprised? :)  How could I resist!  I proudly showed them to my husband yesterday and he said “Great babe.  I’m sure they’ll increase your productivity like all the others..”  Which they totally will!  Although there was something about the way he said it.. I don’t think he’s buying it.  But look at today’s list!  Done and done. ;)
The sweet ladies at Grove Collaborative sent me the most beautiful flowers after I shared their products with all of you.  I love Grove and everyone who works there!  Aren’t they just beautiful!?  So sweet of them.
I had them displayed on my entry console table like this, but then it was bothering me that I had two vases on each end.
So I moved the silver vase and let my fresh flowers steal the show.  Fresh flowers are always such a treat!

Not a lot of new fashion to share because I’ve been working on so many projects this week (can’t wait to share them all!) so I’ve been living in my workout clothes.  But my favorite sleeveless ruffle sweater from BR is on sale!  I have lived in this green top this summer!  Along with my workout clothes. :)

And the white one.


My open knit crew sweater is also on sale!  I’m excited to wear this more.  Perfect transition into Fall sweater.

I have it in the white and green.  It also comes in red and black.

And a few favorite pics from the past week…
We made a quick trip to Utah to visit family before school starts and my mom bought Kole and two of his cousins these darling SWAT costumes to play in.  These boys!  They are too much fun.
Time to rally the troops!  My parent’s treehouse makes a perfect SWAT headquarters.
Wouldn’t want to run into these three in a dark alley.


Enjoy your weekend everyone!


xoxo, Erin

  1. Thanks for all the fun favorites you shared with us today, Erin! As I scrolled down the blog, I emediately started shopping, Lol! I can’t help myself! Self-diagnosed with ADD (Attention “Decorating” Disorder)! Although I love to decorate, I’m obsessed with clothes, too! Love the sleeveless sweater and the open knit crew sweater. Gotta have both of them! Even though Florida is summer all year round, we do get a drop in temperature in Jan. & Feb. I get excited to wear Fall things! Thanks again for this great post! You Rock!

    1. YEA! So happy you found some fun things to pick up Nancie! We have so much in common! Even our temps are the same. I get so excited to wear Fall things the few months it cools off here too. Wish we could shop together! I have a feeling the two of us could do some major damage. ;) Thanks for your fun comment! It made me so happy. :) Enjoy your weekend! xo

  2. Hey Erin, I have received my second order from Grove and am sooooo in love with their products, I do daycare so you can imagine how hard it is to keep my house smelling good my parents have all commented what are you using in here it smells amazing. Thanks for sharing this company and their products with us all…Donna

    1. Donna I’m so happy you are enjoying your Grove products! I bet they do help with your daycare! I absolutely love all of the scents. Thanks cutie! Enjoy your weekend! xo

  3. So many things to smile about in this post, Erin. I so enjoy your Friday Favorites. I love those trays, that herringbone blanket and Kole and his cousins the most. I also like that tote for the tree. Heck, I like it all. And I adore your sense of humor. Thanks for the smiles and giggles. Have an awesome weekend. You have one week left of summer. We started school this week. Man, it seems too early. Especially when it means I’m back to work as well. I work in an elementary school kitchen these days to still be available for kiddos after school. I’m tired today! LOL :)

    1. Thank you so much Jeanne! I’m so happy you like my favorites this week. :) Oh my word.. I feel for you! The first week back is SO rough! I can only imagine how tired you are right now! I’m gearing up for our first week. We are always exhausted after too and my kids get so emotional. It’s rough getting back in the swing of things after lazy summer days! So happy for you that it’s the weekend! Rest up sweet friend! xo

  4. Love everything Erin! That throw :) O.M.G. Been following your blog for a few months now but I think I might have read every post and you have inspired me so much! I have organized my whole house and bought a few things you’ve recommended too! I am also a HUGE list person, love it!! Have a great weekend and love our Southern CA weather!!

    1. Hi Lacey! Oh my word! So happy you found me and I can’t believe you went back and read so much of my blog! You are such a sweetheart! That just made my day. Sounds like we have much in common. A list lover and you’re in Southern Cal? We were meant to be besties. :) Thanks so much cutie! Enjoy your weekend! xo

  5. ok, your posts have resulted in my purchasing several items–great style. i thought i *might* return the favour–i bought this dress from old navy (in dark teal) ( now, normally old navy is not a “go to” store for me, but this summer i wanted to buy a few in-between dresses that i could wear every day, which includes life with a toddler, preschooler, and one in elementary school–so basically, it would need continual washing from continual dirt. honestly, i bought this dress because it was a) cheap, and b) cheap. but it’s great!! it’s a thick fabric, the shape is nice, and it’s very comfortable (and i can wear it with a regular bra). i will be buying it in a smaller size when i get there! anyway, i thought i’d share either for you or any of your lovely readers.

    1. So sweet of you to share that Wilma! That dress is darling! Perfect for just what you described.. running around with kids! My day to day too. :) Thanks cutie! Enjoy your weekend! xo

  6. Hi Erin, I love your blog and enjoy reading your posts. Could you email me information on the wall paper?
    Thank you!

  7. Those SWAT costumes are too cute! I bet those boys just loved them! Your Mom had to be smiling all day watching those boys play in those outfits. Kudos to Grandma on this one. That’s brilliant!!!!!

  8. Well, after encountering the SWAT Squad, I had to go back through the post to remind myself of all your pretty home decor pieces and your darling clothes! But, really, SWAT costumes….now, that is what Grammas are supposed to do! I especially love that those troopers are barefoot! Completely cracked me up!

    Happy Weekend!

  9. Hello Erin! So happy you posted about your faux fiddle leaf fig. I have been on the hunt so I could fill a naked corner in m living room! And another cute note pad…oh my goodness! You can NEVER have too many notepads. I can’t walk by the dollar area in Target without picking one up. I think I can safely make lists from now until forever! :)

    1. Ha! You and me both Laurie! I totally agree.. you can never have too many cute notepads. :) And I love my fake fig! Perfect filler and no maintenance. You will love it! xo

  10. Hi Erin! First of all, I love your blog and have been a follower for years now! I’ve incorporated many of your organizational, decor and fashion into my family’s life 😊.
    I love the blue vase with the faux flowers in the first picture…can you share where it’s from? Thanks! ☀️😊. Ursula

    1. You are such a sweetheart! Thanks for sticking with me for so long. That means a lot to me! That blue vase was from a store called Tai Pan in Utah! Kind of a random find. :) xo

  11. Hi Erin! Was scrolling back through your posts looking at your beautiful décor choices and decided I had to ask about the draperies in the first pic of this post. The navy blue in your formal living area. Where did you buy the fabric, assuming that your draperies are custom made. If not, can you pass along info as to where you purchased! I am in love with them and looking to use in a redecorating project for my master bedroom!

    Love your blog!
