This has been a big week in our house. I have been keeping you in the dark for a lot of what has been going on behind the scenes lately, but with new jobs and exciting upcoming projects for A Dash of Details, I decided there is no better time to celebrate than FriYay :)
Tonight we will be popping a bottle of champagne and this weekend we are headed to Mackenzie and Will’s lake house for lots of R&R and hopefully some Fall weather. Speaking of Mackenzie, she launched the first round of Bubble Earrings on Design Darling and they sold out like hotcakes! I am seriously going to buy every color when they come back in stock because I just love them!
More things I love: this monogram tote might be my favorite bag of all time. I still get heart eyes seeing my new monogram (I know, not the best letter combo) because I am still building up my collection. Next up on my list of monogram items; towels and bedding, oh and a cashmere sweater ;)
In effort to start baking and cooking more at home, I took this Sunday (while my husband was watching football) to test out a few new go-to recipes for the week. First up on my list was these easy banana muffins. They are the perfect quick breakfast when you are on the go in the morning. Reheat them all week and spread a little almond butter on top for extra protein ;)
Head to the bottom of the post of the full recipe.

As we were about halfway through our long walk this weekend, I don’t know what made me think about this quote. Maybe it was the coffee in my hand, our cute pups walking in front of us, or my husband by my side. Whatever the reason for it, I am thankful because we took a minute to reflect on how “pretty amazing” our life is right now. Do you ever get caught up in the routine or lack of routine in your life and forget to take a step back?
After what have been a few crazy weeks around here, I am excited to have a relaxing weekend to recharge and reset. Somehow we are halfway through October (how did this happen) and the holidays are right around the corner. This week I sat down to brainstorm some new content for A Dash of Details and we have some really exciting things in the works. Quick question for all of you: Is there anything specific you would like to see on the site? What kind of content is your favorite? I would love to hear from you!
Denim and Stripes. If you ask me, there is really nothing better than this combo. The classic styles are both in heavy rotation in my closet. Honestly, you will most likely find me in some version of this outfit more than once a week. :)
One of the biggest denim trends this season is the uneven hem. For someone who is petite (5’2″ to be exact), it is so hard to find crop jeans that actually fit above the ankle. Instead of spending $$$ on a pair of denim that might not work, I partnered with Old Navy for a little DIY denim project.
