Friday Five | 04.10.15

Hey!! Here's what has caught my eye recently!

Caitlin Wilson Textiles recently added new spring arrivals, check them out here

Please pin from original source, here, thanks! 

Want to redecorate a room, but don't know where to start? Pick a statement piece such as a piece of art (like shown below) or a pillow with a few different colors. Pull the colors and from the statement piece and base the additional patterns in the room (i.e. pillows or draperies) on the pattern in the statement piece. 

Here's a good, simple example from Domaine Home. The colors are repeated - using a range of blues, whites and naturals. There are also reds, yellows, oranges, in the photograph - so adding that into the textiles could be a second step. But I love the simplicity of sticking with blue and whites. The pattern is repeated in the pillows - both are abstracted dots.

I have spent years (like since high school) trying to find a bathing suit that is cute, but you feel plenty covered. Why is it that most bathing suits are soooo tiny? All of the bra sized tops that I've found look like bras .. low cut and noticeable underwire and a clasp back. Not a fan. A year or so ago I found Coco Rave and Coco Reef at TJ Maxx - they are bra sized (that look like a normal bathing suit top) and have a wide tie back strap so you can get it plenty tight. Also, the bottoms aren't skimpy at all, which is a definite plus!! Though at $19.99, I'd pay that just for the top! You can also browse online  if you don't have a TJ Maxx nearby. p.s. I didn't plan on ever saying bra here, but I figured at least one person might find this helpful!! :) 

Here's the suit I picked up this week! 

Love these DIY gold, clay knobs from Delineate Your Dwelling!

I first found this bamboo look mirror on With Heart, and fell in love. Plus the price is very reasonable!
and this x bench is on clearance!!

Have a great weekend!! :) 


  1. oh i am always looking for a good bathing suit... i need one that keeps my tush in place.

  2. I laughed out loud a little at your "I never thought I'd say bra on here" comment :) Such a pretty suit though! And that mirror!!

  3. I have been looking for a similar mirror for quite awhile for my navy powder room. I swear I searched target before but this didn't come up. I have to drive a couple of extra miles for it but it worth it at that price (I was willingly to pay a lot more). Thanks again, you always have great things on your Friday Five.

  4. Ugh bikini shopping made me cry the other day. I need to find a good one this year. Love those knobs

  5. I am so happy to hear about the swimsuits! I have such a hard time finding things that fit my rear...ha! And at that price it's definitely worth a try...with a pool this summer I need to step up my selection!

  6. Bikini shopping is always a nightmare!!

    And that mirror...GAH! I absolutely love it...and the price! ;)

  7. Love the mirror and X bench! Such great pieces to have!

  8. Thanks for the shoutout, friend! I always love your list!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
