I’ve got a slightly random post for you all today! Talking lamps and swimsuits. They have nothing to do with each other that than the fact that they have both been on my mind this week! Months ago I ordered these fun Stetson table lamps for my bedroom. I loved them even more in person when they arrived and instantly knew they would look good in about 5 spots in my house! That’s how you know you’ve hit a winner with decor right? Finding pieces that are simple and timeless and will work in lots of spots in your home is gold. I’ve narrowed it down to either putting the lamps in my dining room or my bedroom and would love your opinion! I’m leaning towards the dining room but then I’m back to finding lamps for my bedroom which was my goal with buying these lamps in the first place. So that’s just kind of funny. Never fails right? :)
But I really do love these lamps in this spot! I moved the chair to take this picture so you can see how they look next to my artwork. The size is perfect! And I love the grey with the blue/navy in the art and table.
I’m kind of feeling like this is their new home. :)
But then I put them in my bedroom and love them in this space too! Except they make me want to switch out my side mirrors (if you give a mouse a cookie syndrome..). I pulled some navy pillows and a quilt in from our guest room just to mix it up for fun.
I still have my winter art up that I used for Christmas and it was perfect for Jan/Feb! I need to figure out something for spring so I’ll be tweaking things in this space over the next month or two. I was so excited to find this pink tassel pillow cover on-line (I have one in my living room too!) and then I added this pretty basket to the end of my bed and love the texture it brings in this room.
Slowly bringing in some spring! I rounded up some lamps I’m loving right now below. So many fun options and regardless of whether these lamps end up in my dining room or bedroom.. it looks like I need one more set!
Speaking of spring.. the dishes I got for my birthday arrived and aren’t they beautiful!? Talk about all the spring/summer vibes! It made me so excited to entertain. I can’t wait to start having people over again!
I love them even more in person. I’m going to get a fun table set up with them this weekend. My sister and her family are coming to visit over their spring break so we can use these pretty dishes while they are here and then be all set to go for Easter too! Car and I were texting about the trip.. we’re so excited to all be together again but it feels too good to be true. We keep waiting for something to happen that forces us to cancel.. 2020 post traumatic stress.. ha! We all had one too many things canceled last year right!? Schools are slowly opening up around here (my girls can go 2 days starting this week and 4 days starting after our Spring Break) and it feels amazing!
I also got a few more of the beautiful faux flowers in that I ordered. Nothing says spring like cherry blossoms!
Cherry blossoms and swimsuits! With warmer weather making an appearance and our spring break right around the corner we’ve been in hot pursuit of some cute swimsuits before they all sell out. I realized a couple of weeks ago that my kids had all totally grown out of what they were swimming in last year. These 3 suits are the winners for Addison this year! And the cutest summer hat. :)
We love this style of suit that has a little cut out. Not quite a bikini but similar and it’s such a flattering fit! We had this similar suit last year and she wore it right out so we just went with the same look in one size bigger. We looked at so many girls swimsuits this year and I rounded up all of our favorites below!
Getting Kole’s swimsuit figured out was definitely easier than finding suits for my teen girls. Ha. Click click and I had ordered a few favorites that he’ll be great with! We get the same rash guards every year and he could care less what he’s wearing. I’ve realized I’m always drawn to blue and orange when it comes to Kole! Just seems to fit his personality. :) A couple of the suits I ordered Kole have already sold out (suits fly this time of year!) but I rounded up lots of favorites for boys below.
Then there’s me.. ahhhh! I have to say that I don’t love swimsuit shopping for myself. Always just so hard to find something that I feel good in! I’d a lot rather buy lamps and dishes. ;) But I do know what does and doesn’t flatter my body type at this point and I’m determined to find something cute that I can wear and feel confident in. Life is precious and this last year was just one more huge reminder of that. I will be in the water this year splashing around with my kids not worrying one bit about the cellulite on the back of my thighs! (This is a little pep talk I’m giving myself in case you can’t tell.. ha.)
I rounded up all of the suits that I’m loving this year below and I ordered a few of them to try. I’ll let you know what I land on when I figure that out! I also ordered a few cute cover-ups and included a round-up of favorite cover-ups below as well. Because lounging pool side is also definitely in the cards this summer. Moms need breaks too and I don’t have to give myself a pep talk for that one! ;)
Bring on the sunshine! I’m off to organize a closet. ;)
Enjoy the rest of your day!
