Women Crush Wednesday guessed it Kate Hudson again!  I'm pretty sure I will never get tired of her style and how she can pull off any look. I can't wait to re-create this outfit when the temperatures cool down here a little bit. Although I'm not one to wear heels a lot because it might be uncomfortable running kids to football practice and cheer in these and we just don't get out too much. TBH I love shoes so that is the only excuse that I need to have a pair of these basic heels!

Around The House...

This past weekend here in Houston we had much cooler temperatures and I know it might be hard to imagine but it almost felt like fall! So immediately my mind went to fall and halloween decorating. Last year I didn't put a lot of halloween decor out but kept it simple with my display of my velvet pumpkins. This year I might switch it up after all of the inspiration I found online and thumbing through my catalogs. 

These beauties will be making their debut this week!
Love this owl with the mix of pumpkins for my table.

How fun would it be to have a Los Muertos party! Read more about it here.

Pottery Barn now has free shipping on Halloween Decor and today only World Market has 25% off on their Halloween items! Sure makes it tempting doesn't it?
How do you decorate for fall/halloween?

 I can't begin to tell you how much I'm lovin' this striped/shredded tee. Houston is still scorching hot but I've been chompin' at the bit to wear this. I haven't worn these jeans in awhile either and somehow they were a little tight when I slipped them on to head out for the day. I think...that just maybe I might have had one too many 'rita's this summer but when my husband and friend, Melinda make the best ones in town you can't have just one. Anyway, back to this rad shirt of mine...I can't stop thinking of all the ways I can wear it. It will definitely be on repeat this fall and winter since it will look good with jeans, leggings, boots, leather jacket, etc. I played around with wearing boots but those will have to wait. Instead I wore my favorite summer sandals and will continue to wear these well into the fall!

Wednesday Happenings... Bathroom Reveal

Yesterday I showed you our DIY towel bar out of a baseball sign our son had hanging in his room for years. Well all of the hard work has paid off and now these little changes we made to our son's bathroom turned out to make a huge difference! What I love most is that it only took a weekend to give him a whole new refreshed space, with minimal cost. Once again, my bad that I forgot to take a before pic but here are the details for the finished project! 

A new paint color was the first change we made. Goodbye brown & hello clean white!
My budget didn't allow to change the countertops or the vanity so I just painted it to give it a new look. It used to be a muddy brown color that I despised and still do in multiple rooms of our home. I used Annie Sloan's chalk paint in pure white and in a few hours I had my "new" vanity.
We also installed handles on the cabinets to give it a finished look. I had previously purchased the rug a few months ago.
I thought our DIY towel rack needed a little something above it to complete the look. The metal #3 (his baseball number) is something I picked up from the infamous Round Top Antique Market in Round Top, TX a couple of years ago.  
But of course he needed a baseball nightlight!
The striped shower curtain was also purchased when I bought his rug.
Previously there was nothing above the toilet so I reframed this picture that he had hanging in his room of him and his dad walking off the field for one last time together. 
We couldn't be more thrilled with how this project turned out. I was happy to filter some of his baseball decor into another space, to keep the cost down. The most important thing is that Jack loves it!

DIY Towel Bar

Work with me here as I forgot to take a before picture! My son's bathroom is getting a makeover-a side bar to Project Best Day Ever. I took down his traditional towel bar in hopes to find some hooks for him to hang his towel up since he has a habit of leaving them on the ground. I thought it might be less of a "chore" for him if he could just throw it on a hook. After looking around at different ideas I still came up with nothing.  He had the above sign hanging in his room (since he was 2!) We took it down because we were painting and I was on the fence whether to hang it back up or not. Props goes to my hubby for coming up with the idea of installing hooks on the sign and totaling repurposing the sign as a towel bar for him to use in his bathroom. We bought three black metal hooks and screwed them into the board.
Voila! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see his completed bathroom makeover.

Monday Decor...HomeGoods Happy

Every now and then I pop into HomeGoods to see what hidden gems I can find.  I hit the jackpot this past weekend when I came across a few things I wasn't looking for but desperately needed to spruce up a few areas in our home. 
This pink faux sheepskin is the perfect pop of color that my daughter needed for her couch.

Please ignore the shadow in this pic but this rug is perfect for our downstairs bath!

Hope y'all had a good weekend!

Kate Hudson has always been a favorite of mine in movies and fashion. Her street style is always so  flawless wether she's in workout gear, hitting the beach or just casual-chic out on the town . Can you say girl crush?  I came across this picture and wanted to re-create her outfit. I've had a pencil skirt like this in my closet for awhile but haven't found a reason to wear it. Maybe it's because I spent most of my summer days in workout clothes and at the pool. Now that school is back in sesh I'm going to pull this outfit together and find a reason to wear it. I'm not quite sure what brands she is wearing but I did some research and came up with similar items. Check out how you can pull off her look for less below.
