Everyone's Favorite Sweatpants on clearance (tonight only!)

J.Crew's famous Saturday sweatpants are on clearance and you can take an extra 40% off through tonight wide code: DAYFIVE making them just $35!  Holla!  I think this is genius timing since I was just  talking with a friend about how restrictive leggings can feel and how I really needed a cute pair of sweatpants.  Done.

A fab pair of jeans under $100 + Bloomingdales Friends & Family

One of my friends just sent me a text letting me know that I needed to order these jeans.  Imagine my excitement when I opened up the site and saw the 25% friends + family box pop up.  Just use code: FRIENDS at checkout!  I haven't tried these on yet but my friend swears by them so that's good enough for me.  She also said they run true to size but I always think on stretchy jeans it's best to err on the sizing down if you're between sizes.

Another step back to get where you need to be

Sometimes you have to take a step back.  And that's okay.

Those of y'all on instagram over the weekend saw this post coming.  I spent the better part of Saturday painting white primer all over the navy walls and trim in our dining room.  I tried so hard to make the navy work but it never felt right.  I got carried away with the idea of doing some fun and exciting in our house.  I think I wanted y'all to think I wasn't boring.  I wanted to prove to myself that I wasn't boring.  That yet another room in my house wasn't going to be gray with white trim and a sisal rug.

I know this is a deep post about a room.  It's just paint, for goodness sake.  But it's not just about a color on a wall.  I feel like this room has taught me a lot in the past year and I'm listening to that.  Sometimes I feel like my whole life is a little boring compared to some.  I get up, cook, clean, pack snacks, carpool, hug, kiss, love, teach, snuggle, straighten, vacuum, fold clothes, put away groceries, match up socks, try to think about what I want to be when I grow up, watch netflix, go to sleep, wake up with babes in the night, drink more coffee and do it all again. But you know what, I'm super content with all of that.  Spoiler alert, I'm actually really happy with my "boring" life.  And the thing is, I'm just as happy with my predictable home with light colored walls and floors and baskets full of pillows in every room.  But that doesn't mean I'm not up for taking a risk every now and again even if it doesn't work out.

 I see people on instragram whom I love to follow with whole houses that are white and neutral and cohesive and then I see lively homes that are bursting at the seams with color and pattern mixing and perfectly styled vignettes and everything in between.  You know what they all have in common?  Real people who live there who are proud of their homes.  I hope that's what people think when they see our house.  It's not dazzling or cutting edge or impressive.  But I can assure you when you step foot inside this house I'll be glad you came and I'll try to make you glad you came as well.  I hope that feeling transfers through the computer screen.  It's not about painting or re-painting but loving your life in those walls.

So back to the room.  Walls have been primed.  Bookshelves and door are staying navy.  I'll need to tape off a hard edge once the actual paint goes up.  It's just the right amount of drama without shouting at me.  I feel like this room can breathe again.  I hung some art and pushed the chest back against the wall even though I'm mid-project because I was just so excited and couldn't wait to visualize.  It finally feels like I got it right in here. 

I started this project on Saturday morning on a whim and high on coffee while Mathew was out hunting.  Big surprise when he got home and saw white walls.  He loved it too, of course.

"What color are the walls going to be?" he asked.  "Classic Gray" I replied.  "What were the walls before?" , "Don't ask."

Progress in our Boy's Room/Guest Rooom

Earlier this summer,  Perfect Linens reached out to me to see if I wanted try a set of their sheets.  At the time Wells and Tagg were smack in the middle of sharing a room for "sleepover summer" and Tagg's little twin bed was in her room.  We moved our old bed into his room to use as a guest room but kept his things in there so that whenever he returned it would still be his room.

I knew based on their different sleep habits that eventually Tagg would be back in his room and he'd just upgrade to the bigger bed.  This way when we have overnight guests (which is rare) we still have a big bed for them to sleep in and Tagg can just sleep in Wells' room for a night or two.

When browsing their sheets I made sure to pick something that worked for a little boy (blue details, of course) but still felt grown-up for when we have guests.  I also liked how they specialize in sheets and had a small curated collection to choose from.  They're 100% cotton an so cool and soft.  Our little man has really sensitive skin so this is a must for him.  I'll probably pick up a pair of fun kids sheets for him at some point but I like that my sister won't have to sleep on cars or trucks when she visits next!

 Perfect Linens is offering all of you a $35 discount using code: PAWLEYS35!

A special thank you to perfect linens for allowing me to pick out a pair of sheets to try!   All selections and opinions are all mine!

Bathroom Update Plans || Part Two

I'm getting excited because we're getting closer to phase two of our powder room makeover.  The freaking smallest project ever to take so long.  We've been holding off because we'll need to replace the floor once the hold vanity comes out.  That's not that big of a deal except that it means we  probably should replace the flooring in the laundry room and the kitchen and little hallway that connects them together while we're at it.  Not the most fun project.  Kitchen floor has some issues and it makes sense to fix everything at once, right.  Or so I've been told.

But the fun part is I found a sink console that I love.  I can't wait to go from beige seashell to a nice white marble top!  And of course we'll put in a new toilet as well.  This is going to be so nice when it's finished.  It's taking every bit of self control I have not to amaze-prime that shit on the credit card.

Dairy, Egg, and Peanut Allergy || Safe Snack List

I get emails a lot from people who have a child newly diagnosed with food allergies.  It's such an overwhelming and anxiety filled road to navigate and I'm happy to do anything I can do to make that journey feel less isolating for someone else.  Today I'm just offering out a few things that are safe snacks for those with dairy, egg, and peanut allergies. If there is anything you want to know or questions you have or topics you'd like to see me talk about regarding this just comment below or send me an email.  (juliakyleryan@gmail.com)

Plus I added in a picture of my sweet boy because he's way cuter to look at than a list of snack food!

I've been wanting to share my feelings on being a food allergy mom on here for well over a year but I've held back.  Mostly because when I start thinking about it too much my anxiety sky rockets and that's not helpful for anyone, least of which my family.  And I also don't want to give the false impression that my son is an "allergy kid" because he is so much more than that and I don't want that to be what people see first.  This article articulates really well what it's like to have a child who is not defined by his allergy but a motherhood that is.  This is my life.  I urge everyone to read it because I am an advocate for compassion and education.  Nothing more.   This article also gives a good look into an allergic reaction if you're curious.

If you or someone you love suffers from severe food allergies I also urge you to familiarize yourself with the FARE website and facebook page.  It's the best out there.  And please read all labels and do your own research;  I'm not a medical professional or an educator, just a mom.

My favorite lines from the article referenced above:

"a food allergy is a life-threatening condition that causes children to stop. breathing. immediately. It's very real... and it's very scary." 

"We know we're perceived as high-maintenance parents. And we feel badly about that because the level of diligence we're forced to have about the subject of food allergies may not be consistent with the level of diligence our personalities would normally reflect." 

Today my son's teacher is sending home a letter asking his classroom to become allergy friendly for him.  He is anaphylactic to dairy, egg, and peanut.  I'm still not sure how I feel about that.  I asked three times for her not to do that.  I'm not the kind to ever want to impose on others.  I'm not really sure how I feel about food bans in general.  Mostly because I know they don't work.  I've seen firsthand where peanut butter sandwiches were brought out in our nut free school.  Plus nothing in our world is truly safe.  There are sticky grocery carts and monkey bars and escalators and door knobs and elevator buttons in our world.  And they pose an indefinite threat to his breathing.  But I need to teach myself and my son how to navigate that.  He won't be kept in a bubble, now or later in life.  Plus, of all people I really and truly know first hand the struggle to find something to feed your child and asking others to do without something their child likes goes against my nature.  I hope they don't hold it against us.  I'm sure it's hard not to.

I also understand the teacher's need to feel more in control of her classroom and to eliminate as many scenarios for disaster as possible. These kids are three.  I get that because it's the same control I exercise at home.  I live with anxiety every day that I won't be able to spot the signs of my son not breathing or be able to distinguish fast enough an asthma attack from anaphylaxis.  I live with this all day every day and I'm not an expert, how can I pass that burden on to someone else?

One specific thing I get asked is what to feed them.  I've put together a list of all the snacks our Dairy, Egg, and Peanut Allergic son can have.  Please be sure to read all labels as some things change.  His allergies are severe so we have also eliminated anything that is processed on equipment shared with his allergens.  If you've got anything to add, I'd love to know!  I'll update this list as often as I can!

Chicken Puff Pastry

When Matthew and I first started dating I wanted to impress him with my culinary skills.  Most of which were gathered from the sample stations at Costco and a few attempts by my Mom to show me a trick or two when she came to visit.  I should have known it was true love between us when he saw my canned chicken and frozen broccoli and still let me talk about how awesome it was that I could cook for him.  In return of that first mediocre college-kid style meal I prepared for us, he invited me to his house the next day and whipped up what could only be described as gourmet.  And damn good.

So here you have it, Chicken Puff Pastry.  Sure to impress.



Boneless skinless chicken (cut into small pieces)
Garlic (chopped)
no salt added corn
red pepper (chopped)
fresh parmesan cheese block for grating
puff pastry sheets
cilantro or parsley (chopped fine)
olive oil 
white wine (or prosecco)
parchment paper


Saute chopped onion, red pepper, garlic and corn on medium heat until browned.
Deglaze pan with dry white wine and remove ingredients and set aside.

Add diced chicken to the pan and cook thoroughly on medium heat (about 7-10 minutes)

Combine the original ingredients and the chicken and allow to simmer on low heat while you prep the pastry. (see below)

To finish the sauce add heavy cream, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, a dash of paprika and S&P to taste.

Puff Pastry: allow puff pastry sheets to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Once thawed cut into squares and roll to a fairly thin sheet. Stack two sheets, press edges and score the top.

Once the sheets are ready place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes on 400degrees or until golden brown.

To serve- Cut an opening in the pastry and add chicken mixture then top with fresh grated parmesan cheese

FALL DRESSES (under $100)

I love a good sundress in the summer because it's easy and it's comfortable.  When it's hot outside the less touching me the better.  But as temperatures drop I love to put on a pretty dress and instantly feel more feminine.  Probably because my cold weather go-to is jeans or leggings, a dress feels more proper and more grown up.  I love that.

I tried to round up just a few of my favorite dresses for fall and wound up with a lot.  I'm not going to narrow it down, this list is too good.  Give me all the dresses.

Who wants to play along and with me and pick a favorite?  Top three?  The best part, they're all way under $100 so you can pick a few and not feel guilty!

Transition to Fall

I found a few fun things to help transition your wardrobe to fall!  I'm not quite ready for all the plaid and pumpkin spiced latte's, but I'm almost there!  The weather has been pretty hot this weekend but temperatures are creeping back down tomorrow.  And nights and mornings have been incredible with just a slight chill in the air.  Bring it on!

Blue + White Nursery (for a baby girl)

One of my favorite bloggers, Haute Indoor Couture, recently shared pictures of her new baby girl's blue and white nursery.  I was blown away.  The room is so pretty and sophisticated yet decidedly perfect for a baby girl.  There are so many pieces that could be used as she grows up or moved to other rooms of the house.  I think that's so important when designing any room in your home.  I couldn't wait to share it because I just knew you would love it too!

Fall Style

It's officially fall in the mornings around here.  The air is a little bit cooler and crisp and I love it.  I've got a good casual uniform outfit for y'all today.  It's already cotton scarf weather and can't wait to start wearing a vest and booties.  This one will be on rotate on around here!

Gin + Tonic Bar

 My new art print, going for a swim, from Minted arrived while we were at the beach and as soon as I opened it up I knew the perfect spot for it.  I started drinking gin + tonic with a lime while on vacation last week and I knew I wanted to create a little drink station at home.  Summer drink + summer memories. A perfect combination for an empty little corner in our living room.

 So far I prefer the Hendrick's over the Bombay Sapphire but have yet to try the Tanqueray.  Looks like I've got a reason to pour a cocktail tonight!  All in the name of research, of course.  I squeeze half a lime in and it tastes just like a non-sweet limeade.  Yum.  I've been mixing with Schweppes but curious if you have any other tonic water you'd recommend trying out?  I might drive over to Homegoods or World Market and see if I can find some fancy looking bottles.  I'm a sucker for a good label. 

Also, how pretty are those hand stamped cocktail napkins?  I bought a set of four from my girl Emily last year.  She is crazy talented and I am hoping she lists more for sale before Christmas.  They'd make a great gift.  She creates the most awesome hand stamped chinoiserie inspired goodies.

We spent the entire summer at the pool and I loved it.  I grew up swimming and pictures of the water always intrigue me.  I love this modern take on that.  Y'all know I love photography as well and I just can't get enough of Minted's photography art prints.  Check out a few more of my favorites below.

Family Vacation

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.”
― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Girls Pink Gingham Ruffle Wrap Dress || Pleione blouse from last spring but similar here, here, here, and here || white jeans (look for less version here for $32) || Personalized Bespoke Bangles || Julie Voss necklace (look for less version here) || sandals || pink lipstick

Our incredible vacation is officially over and we're headed back to reality today.  I can't even tell you how amazing it's been for us to be back on the water.  Incredible.

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this trip.  I've traveled a lot with the kids over the past few years but mostly with my mom while Matthew stayed home to work.  That dynamic has worked really well so adding Matthew and my dad into the mix was new.  It went better than I could have dreamed.

One thing we didn't do was over schedule the kids.  We did a lot each day but nothing for too long.  Part of me wanted to log in more hours at the beach or try to sight see but I knew that happy kids would make for a better vacation.  We definitely got a lot in but we came home each afternoon for at least two to three hours of down time followed by easy dinners at home.  I love the idea of going out to eat on vacation but it just really wouldn't have worked for us.  The kids were ready to be relaxing and watching a movie and I can only imagine how stressful it would have been to ask everyone to get dressed nice and be on their best behavior.  Add in my anxiety over Tagg's food allergies and it would have been a disaster.  And sitting on the porch drinking a gin and tonic with a killer view was perfection to me.

There are so many great restaurants here though for those of y'all that like to venture out!  I'm going to do a recap next week with my favorite spots in the area, even though I only went to one on this trip!

School starts on Monday and I'm a little nervous about having to be back on a schedule after so many months off.  But I'd be totally full of crap if I said I wasn't looking forward to a few extra hours to myself in the mornings.  I love my kids but dang it's nice to grocery shop alone.

A few favorites for the girls

Lots of pretty today!  I am currently having a love affair with the color blue but that doesn't mean I've turned my back on all things pink and girly.  And today's picks are no exception!  There is nothing more fun that a little bit of feminine (or a lot) thrown into a space.  Most men will see something for the first ten times and either like it or not but won't even remember it's there after that.  Women will see what they love forever.  Every time.

Emily Ley Simplified Planner Launch

  Just wanted to give you a quick update that the Emily Ley 2016 Simplified Planners just launched!  I got to snag one early and have already fallen in love with it.  I can't wait until January to get to start actually using it and implementing some organization into my daily routine.  I just can't get on board with an iphone only schedule.  I miss things.

Oh, I ordered the Mint Dot and it's so pretty!

My new Favorite view + my new favorite drink.

Happy Wednesday everybody!  With the exception of a few of us, it looks like everyone is back in school.  How is going?  I love the first few weeks of school when routines are still followed and to-do lists get checked off and organization is still working!  Snack stations, backpack hooks, clean school clothes.  By November I'm already back at free for all scrounging for clean socks and safe pretzels about fifteen minutes before school starts.

 My brother in law made me a Gin + Tonic the other night and I'm hooked.  You know I've been trying to taste test my way to a new stiff drink.  Not everywhere we can go can accommodate a malibu baybreeze with pineapple juice, midori, a lime and a cherry :)  Our beach trip seemed like the perfect occasion but I found a winner on night one!

I've been adding the juice from half a lime to the gin + tonic so it tastes more like a limeaid but not as sweet.  It's so dang refreshing.  My husband doesn't like gin so this wasn't something I had thought to try but I love it so much more than vodka drinks.  I can't wait to try it served with a cucumber next, apparently that's the British way.  Done.   I'm going to garnish with rosemary and lime tonight so I'll let you know how that goes.

What's your favorite drink?  And what are some of your favorite beaches?  I've been up and down the East Coast from Maine to Florida and have a few loves like Nantucket, Pawleys Island, Debordieu, Sullivan's Island, Kiawah, Amelia Island, and St.Simon's Island. 

I keep seeing gorgeous pictures of the Gulf Coast and the West Coast and I'm dying to get out there and see first hand.  San Clemente is one in particular that keeps my attention the most on instagram!

Beaching + Shopping

 Happy Labor Day!

We are seriously having the most awesome vacation!  This is our first family vacay so I wasn't really sure how it would go.  The kids are at the magic age where they don't nap and can be still be entertained with pop-tarts and a bucket.  We've been spending some time on the beach but mostly at the pool.  They're pool kids at heart.  Neither of them really likes to get all sandy for long and to be honest I'm like that too.  They mostly like to go back and forth!  Jump in the pool and swim for a bit, run to the beach, play, get sandy, build a castle, cry because they're sandy, rinse off, go jump in the pool....on repeat!

There isn't really much in the way of shopping where we are but I'm still snagging a few good deals online.  Thank goodness for internet!  I've rounded all of the good sales for you in one place to make it easier!

End of Summer trip to the Beach + Sales!

 We're headed back to South Carolina tomorrow for a week!  I'm so excited.  We're renting a house on the creek and I'm picturing lots of crabbing and fishing and boozing on the dock!  ha!  This is the first family vacation we've ever taken and really pumped.  I take the kids on adventures like this as much as possible but usually Matthew has to stay home to work.  Not this time.  We've got 10 days of family fun.  I just hope we all love it as much as I think we will.  I know that motherhood doesn't pause for vacay so there will still be laundry and dirty dishes but at least I'll have a better view!

 Have you checked out the Nordstrom end of summer sale?  It's pretty good!  I tried to narrow it down to my top ten but just couldn't!  Each time I clicked a new page I liked all the things.  So much great stuff!  I'm going to have to sit on my hands to keep from ordering it all.

Master Bedroom Reader Plans

Good morning friends!  We all slept through the night last night.  Holla!  I'm talking about that first.  What a day maker that can be for all of us.  I know I've talked on here before about my son's sleep troubles.  For the most part, they are completely gone.  We try to hold every piece of the puzzle together every single night but there are always interruptions to that.  And you better believe the few times Wells wakes up it will guaranteed be on a night that Tagg is sleeping soundly.  Parenthood!  You are not alone.  Side note, I made them go to the pool yesterday and they slept better. Coincidence?  I think not :)

I've got something slightly different for y'all this morning.  My sister's best friend recently emailed me about some design decisions for her new home.  Mostly with coordinating tile or tile with wallpaper. So much fun!  Just last week she asked if I would be willing to put her master bedroom on the blog with an open call for reader advice.  YES!!!  One thing I've always loved about this blog is that I can always count on you to give helpful advice.  Whether it's helping me decide on furniture or choosing a dress for an event or even mommy advice, plain and simple.  I love hearing what you have to say.

I am calling on your wonderfully creative readers for some design inspiration! We built our new home in the Dallas area and moved in earlier this summer. Most of the rooms are complete or nearly there...but the master bedroom has been mostly neglected.
I need some ideas on a rug, casual chandelier or ceiling fan, thoughts on going with artwork or photo vignette over the bed and thoughts on the reading nook. Window seats maybe, or matching upholstered chairs? We are about to get the walls painted in Sea Salt but need some fresh ideas on pulling it all together and making it look "finished". To give a little snapshot of my style, I've also included some photos of rooms that are now complete (master bath, kitchen and oldest daughter's room) :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Here is the adjoining master bath and below that her kitchen so you can a better idea of her style.  It's elegant and soothing with upscale traditional finishes.

And her sweet daughter's bedroom is just coming along wonderfully.  Seriously, it's so full of light and really very pretty!  I just love sweet rooms.  You can also see she's got pretty traditional taste but likes an updated and light feel!

I've got some ideas up my sleeve for her that I'll share later this week but I also wanted to invite you to share what you would do with the space.  So many of you are so creative and have such great ideas.  I tend to love something and stick with it and have a hard time thinking outside the box.  That's where you come in!
