I had my 10 year high school reunion this weekend, which made me feel pretty old. But you know what made me feel even more old? Taking two days to recover from staying up way too late with old buddies. Since I’m still shaking off my late night of drinking and gossiping, I have a light little post to share with you today — a few things that have caught my eye and are just too good not to share. I’m feeling this modern-cabin-vibe lately and just want to wear chunky neutral knits and classic pieces. That National Parks print? Obsessed.  And a quirky little door mat, I mean, everyone needs a little wit on their way out the door in the morning, right?

Lately I’ve been experimenting with bold royal purples and bright tomato reds in my closet. I snagged a light silky purple blouse from Old Navy last week and paired with some of my favorite red chino shorts; then I spotted a purple and red necklace on the sale rack at J.Crew this weekend and scooped it up! I usually associate these colors with the rich hues reserved for the Fall, but pairing them together in light weight fabrics is working for me this Spring. What do you think of this color combination?

My sister and I are freaks, and after Thanksgiving dinner last week, we went to Michael’s to take advantage of their 40% off pre-Black Friday deal (our cousin and aunt came too — at least the crafting freak flag is hereditary).

(Side note: you really don’t want to know what kind of people go to a craft store at 9:00 on Thanksgiving night, it’s a scary breed).

When the two of us get together, it’s usually crafting pandemonium. We’ve been emailing back and forth about the great ideas on P.S. I Made This, and decided we had to make her animal print tote.

A blank canvas tote… a few stencils… some metallic sharpies… and several hours of permanent marker fumes…

And poof! Animal print tote!

I’m debating whether or not to monogram mine like my sister did, check it out here.
