burgundy + gray...and bed search chat




Sweater: old - almost exact style  //  Button down: old - similar herehere // Skirt - on sale (got mine in Tall) // Shoes: c/o Sole Society, also similar here and here // Bag: RM old  - love this one // Watch // Bracelet old - love this option





Happy Wednesday to you all!

This is an outfit from a while back that didn't turn out quite as planned. Well, the outfit did but the pictures didn't.  Just one of those times...


Onto a completely different subject now. Home Decor...sort of.  I'm pretty sure all of us love home decor (furniture in this case).

 I'm currently in the process of finding an awesome but affordable bed. Turns out finding something nice and affordable is hard, very hard.  I've been stalking (feels like stalking) some of the popular home decor/home furniture sites.

I've looked at SO many beds, especially over the last few days and always just one thing is missing...if the style is perfect the color is wrong (this style is neat, if it only was lighter). If color is perfect the style is not it. If color and style are perfect the price is not (totally not picky over here).

As of right now this Arch bed is my favorite (the only thing that bugs me about it is that the headboard doesn't extend all the way down. But our mattress is high enough, it probably wouldn't be visible).  Second place is probably this one and third one is this Wingback bed.  


Which one is your favorite?

  8. We just purchased the wingback bed in a dark charcoal for my boyfriend and it is awesome- seriously looks like a super expensive bed and didn't take that long to assemble! Check overstock.com, they have a lot of the skyline beds for really reasonable prices!

    Great outfit. As for the bed, we purchased two fabric headboards in the past few years. I saved money by doing just the headboard. If you are comfortable with a basic bedskirt, I think you can save money that way. Bedskirts can be expensive, but you can find a basic white tailored one at any big box home store for around $40.

    1. Bedskirts have crossed my mind, but for some reason I get quickly tired of them (maybe I just never found a good one). Thanks for your suggestion :)

  15. Really? I love these pictures Lilly! You always look beautiful. You have such nice lighting and such a great background in your house that it doesn't matter! I wish our condo was the same story, but it's impossible to get even one good picture there! Love the red heels. Sole Society makes the prettiest and most affordable shoes. Good luck on your search!

    1. You're so sweet Noelle :) When I practice taking pictures on Zoey they turn out great...but that could be because she's so little and it's more of a closeup.

    Those are all the exact style that I was looking for too, but we couldn't justify the price tag for our king size, so we ended up making our own. There are many great tutorials online and it's really quite easy to do. I had my husband help and it only took us a couple of hours one afternoon. It was my first time using nailhead trim and doing any sort of tufting but ours looks pretty good if I do say so myself! Good luck with your search!

    1. Yes, the king sizes are pricey, that's what we need unfortunately. Our current headboard was a DIY, my hubby made it, and I love it. We were thinking about about making another another one and just buying a nice bed frame. Will see :)

  17. This is such a cute outfit! I love that you ordered the skirt in tall...it makes a perfect midi skirt and is perfectly proportionate to the rest of your outfit!

    1. Thank you :) The Factory skirts in Tall work perfect for me. The regular looks shorter than I'd like it to be, especially once I sit, pencil skirts tend to ride up quite a bit.

  18. it is so hard to get pics right indoors. Love the burgundy pencil skirt. My favorite is the arch bed as well, I love the shape of the headboard. What type of linens are you thinking of with it? Can't wait to see it all together when it is done:)

    1. It really is. The shape is my favorite part. With each of those I'd tweak a few things to make a perfect one, but then I snap back to reality. lol Not sure about linens yet. I definitely have to buy most of the stuff since we're going from queen to king size.

  20. Burgundy and grey (with a touch of pink) make for a very lovely color combination indeed! Love the look and the colors are great! (I also wish that I could wear high heels again...those shoes are gorgeously cute!) A very sophisticated, yet understated look! I just love it!

    1. Thank you Lis! Oh no, how come you can't wear heels? Our feet are definitely a lot happier with flats :)

  22. I love the joss and main 2nd one you posted out of the 3. More classic and a person might tire of the tuffs on the other two? Let us know what you come up with! Did you look at pottery barn? Love your blog. Can you do a post on comfort lounge wear for around the house? Cute but cozy? Thanks! Jen

    1. I did look at Pottery Barn but didn't find anything that popped out. If I only could take certain features of each one....:) Yes, I can definitely do a post on comfy and, what I think, cute lounge wear. Stayed tuned :)

  24. I am also searching high and low for a new bed, my boyfriend and I are making a move and we have been looking at your third place pick! I love the other options you posted as well, it is seriously the hardest thing to find and settle on! BTW I really love the color combo in your outfit, burgundy with pink is my favorite!

    1. That exact style of bed is my #1 choice... IF only I could find it in off white and velvet fabric. Must be popular as I haven't had any luck yet :/

So if you're looking for suggestions for new stories/posts.. how about work bags... to carry your laptop in.. I"m on the hunt for a new one... sturdy, versatile, chic.... HELP!
