Favorite Things: Reese’s Room * Black & White and Pink All Over

Monday’s can be the worst but they are especially bad after a long weekend. We spent the weekend in New York for a friend’s AMAZING wedding (they got married with this view behind them). There also may or may not have been 4th of July themed jello shots at the end of the night which led to my dress needing an immediate trip to the dry cleaners and making my Sunday start a little later than we’d planned. I wish I’d taken more pictures at the wedding but I was having too much fun to break out the camera.

Anyways… a few weeks ago I shared a couple {amateur} shots of Reese’s room but today I’m pumped to show off a few that Whitney snapped during Reese’s newborn pics. My chair still hadn’t come in at that point so that didn’t make the cut but the rest of the room had come together (at the last minute, obviously) in time.

When I planned out her room, I knew I wanted to do something a little more modern but still fitting in with the character of our house. After countless hours on Pinterest looking for inspiration, I spotted these simple heart decals and it was settled. We went with a black and white focus but added the heart elements and a very subtle, pale pink color for the walls (I’d tell you the name but we took a pale pink and then had it diluted with white to get it perfect).

We used a mix of furniture we had already had (we spray painted Drew’s Pottery Barn crib black and I had the white armoire) and added a few special pieces (her chair and this West Elm dresser). When picking out the new items, I wanted to make sure they were pieces that could grow with her. I also had searched for a Moroccan pouf but couldn’t commit to the price tag until I saw this one at the Gilt sale (where I had to get aggressive in order to get my hands on it).

This definitely wasn’t something that came together in one fell swoop, I added black and white pieces throughout my pregnancy (often while wandering aimlessly through Target) and am still looking for little touches. All in all though, I’m really happy with how it turned out and love walking into the room for a quick escape since the rest of my house is, generally, a chaotic mess.

Shopping: Here Comes the Sun

I could collect sunglasses like shoes if I didn’t have a tendency to misplace them so often. Like shoes, they always fit and there’s a {possible} different pair for every outfit. Earlier this year I invested in a new pair but now that summer is here, I’m looking to add some fun frames to the rotation. I’ll probably stick with something with a plastic frame – sturdy for pool days and getting thrown into various bags – but that doesn’t mean I’m not coveting some other styles too.

I’m really into the blue mirrored aviators that everyone is snatching up of late and I really dig the clubmasters but alas, they look like crap on me. More likely than not, I’ll go for a sillier, fun pair in a bright color (how great are these pastel stripe ones?) or shape. Seriously, you know you want these American Flag ones for Fourth of July (they’re only $12 so you can avoid feeling guilty if you only wear them on patriotic holidays).
