Our Fall Bar Cart

I have loved having a bar cart in our house because it is something I can so easily change up and create little vignettes depending on the season! You can see what our bar cart looked like before here and what I've used for "fall bar cart" inspiration here. I haven't added too many fall touches around the house yet, but this is our little corner of fall. By the way, you won't really see me decorating for Halloween... I have personally preferred to stick to "fall" with oranges, maroons, and greens like you'll see below! This way, my decor can extend all the way through Thanksgiving!

Blue and White Pumpkins

If you've been following me for a bit, you'll know that it's no secret that I love me some blue and white! I  wrote this post this spring, have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to the classic color combo, and even our wedding was blue and white!

If you share my love for blue and white, you might love these blue and white pumpkins too! Such a fun way to decorate for fall whether you want to mix with orange or white pumpkins or just by themselves for a little touch of fall.

I'm loving those hand-painted chinoiserie pumpkins! How cute are these pumpkins all grouped together! Want to see more? I just found this article all about Chinoiserie Pumpkins!

Fall Bar Cart Inspiration

Fall is clearly in the air this week, despite the warm temperatures that are still here Georgia. This week I posted some transitional fall pieces and my favorite way to add a little fall into your wardrobe. I will admit, I am definitely ready for the cooler temps to come, which is not something I say often. Mostly I think I'm just ready to break out my new navy booties, and trying to find a reason to add another puffer vest to my closet.

In the meantime, I have started to decorate the house for fall and was so excited to break out my favorite pumpkin candle the other night! Because I love celebrating the start of the weekend with some bar cart inspiration, I've found some great fall themed bar cart inspo to share! How cute are these?! 

Not really a "bar cart" but I love this coffee bar from AHR's Fall Home Tour

Wild for Fall

Yesterday I posted a few of my favorite transitional pieces for when it warm but you still want to dress for fall in the South. I think one of the easiest ways to transition is by changing your color palette and throwing some animal print into your wardrobe. This can be anything from a pair of leopard sandals to a fun animal printed dress. It's a great way to add a little fun to some of your neutrals and get into the fall spirit even if it isn't quite fall weather out yet!

Transitioning Into Fall

Transitioning into fall is always a little bittersweet for me at first. I'm such a summer girl and love warm weather because it means the beach, bright colors, and usually just lots of fun times in general. However slowly but surely I have started to get ready for fall to come, and with the cool nights we've had lately it's a been a little easier to get ready for the season. 

Though I'm not going full force into fall fashion quite yet, I'm slowly trying to transition from my summer favorites (pretty much all bright Lilly things) into some more "fall-like" staples. I'm all about buying things I can wear now, with maybe sandals or shorts (since it's still in the 80's) and then wear later with boots and sweaters. 

I've had this dress in my shopping cart for the last couple weeks and finally purchased it today because I think it's going to be a great fall staple. I love the simplicity of dresses and don't have a problem wearing long sleeves now anyways because I'm almost always cold inside in the air conditioning. I think that dress will be so cute with booties (love these!) once it's a little cooler out.

Nordstrom Rack

I was so excited last week to attend the Nordstrom Rack Opening Party in Mount Pleasant! I've always been a loyal Nordstrom shopper, so having a Nordstrom Rack so close is a huge benefit because they have so many great finds at awesome prices! If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I scored these espadrilles I've had my eye on all summer! I also picked up one of these tees as I was in line to check out, and I'm so glad I did- it's one of my new favorites because it's nice and long and the perfect weight. I now want one in every color!

It was such a fun event to attend, with mini champagne bottles when you walk in the store... which always makes shopping more fun! ;) It was great to see some sweet Charleston bloggers at the event too! We enjoyed dinner afterwards at Tavern and Table on the always gorgeous Shem Creek. It was so great to have a night back in Charleston to shop!

Friday night Robbie and I went out to dinner and was so excited to wear my new Nordstrom Rack purchase! I've been all about jumpsuits lately (as you can see- I wore one last week to the opening too!) because I love how they can easily transition from summer to fall and make a fun statement.

This fun v-neck jumpsuit was perfect for a night out, and I actually loved the light purple color though I'm not normally a purple girl. Unfortunately it's already sold out online, but below you can find some of other favorite jumpsuits from Nordstrom Rack! These shoes were fun to style with it and were so comfortable considering I hardly ever wear heels. I love that they're kind of a hybrid of a sandal and bootie- again perfect for summer to fall transitioning!

Simplified Life

After taking at least five trips back and forth from Charleston to move myself into our new house this summer, it was apparent that I had way too many things. Boxes and boxes of things that could probably just stay in those boxes because I was pretty obvious that I already have most everything I need. Through the last month and a half I've been working on simplifying and getting rid of all of that extra stuff around us that just fills up space and creates clutter.

Another reason to simplify is that my closet is just not big enough for the amount of clothes that I have! I've already filled up two huge boxes of clothes to donate but with the nicer things that I have left and just don't need, I'll be selling them over on my Instagram closet account, @heatherscloset115. I'll try to have most things posted later today! This Barbour vest I posted yesterday would be so cute for fall! I bought it from someone last year but it unfortunately is just a bit too big for me!

On another note of simplifying, the Emily Ley Simplified Planners go on sale today at 10AM!! I love mine and can not wait to use it in January. I've heard that these planners sell out very quickly so don't wait to buy yours for next year!

I'm a huge fan of Emily Ley's products and the way that they are made for "purpose not perfection." I think this explanation on the front page is just right.

The planner includes a full page monthly calendar which is great for seeing the big picture for the month. I'm such a visual person so this is important for me because I can remember where things are written, but not always what it is! And then for the day-to-day organization, the planner includes each page detailed out by each hour and along with a to-do list. So important for making sure you are spending your time wisely and like she writes in the description "simplifying real life to make time for what matters most."

In one of the first pages of the planner, Emily includes tips on how to best use the planner and how to simplify your life. With so much technology all around me, I always find it difficult to eliminate the distractions but feel that it's so important to focus on the big things before letting the small things get in way.

Another great post here about simplifying and living with less.

I would love to know- what are some ways that you simplify your life?



Our Bar Cart

We've almost made it to the weekend! Last Friday, I shared some bar cart inspiration for putting our bar cart together. I shared this photo the other night of the pretty pink lillies that were blooming on top and wanted to share the rest of the bar cart photos today to celebrate the arrival of the holiday weekend!

Right now, our bar cart is tucked into a corner in our family room... and on the other side of that wall to the right is our actual bar so we don't have far to go to get the drinks and rest of the drinkware. Since I don't always have pretty fresh flowers up there, the palmetto roses are a good permanent staple since those don't need much care and always remind me of Charleston! I love the new addition of our Savannah map print- I was excited to find the perfect spot for it! The marquee letters on the bottom were actually from one of the bars at our wedding so they have a little extra special meaning! :)
