{home decor & a little J Crew}

Just stopping in to say Hi and let you all know that I'm still here. Sorry for the lack of exciting posts, but I have really been enjoying this summer with Lil Petunia and my hubby. We have been swimming, going to movies, going to dinner, hanging out with friends, and staying up late! Nothing terribly exciting has happened, and to prove that point--we spent an entire weekend installing towel rods! 6 bath towel rods and 5 hand towel rods later we can finally hang up our towels. We've only been in this house for a year... Initially we didn't want the builder-grade ceramic towel rods, so we told them not to install any rods in the entire house. I really wanted the rods to match my faucet hardware. But, because they had to be special ordered from someplace 45 minutes away (and because I'm a procrastinator) we just received them a couple of weeks ago and just now had the time to install them. Well, I measured and marked the walls, and hubby installed. He is very handy!



I did stop by to check out the J Crew new arrivals and only came home with these two items.
The "Blair" top:
And the navy striped "Captains" tee:

I echo you sentiment regarding the towel racks. I changed every towel rack and toilet paper holder in all of my bathrooms last year so that they all match...i love the look. I hate ceramic towel hangers. Love your crew finds. Both tops look lovely on you.

It sounds to me like you are having the PERFECT sort of summer! You can tell your husband for me that as a "not handy" person, I admire his effort in putting up all those towel bars!

How did I miss your post? I love your new towel rods. And you know my lust for monogram towels...I love them!!!

You look gorgeous! I love that black and white striped shirt. I bought one similar at Ann Taylor. Do you ever shop at Banana Republic?

I decided to go with the Jessica Alba cut/style. Also, I'll try logging onto Twitter tonight when I have time to figure out how it works. :)

Love the "Blair" top. It's on my wish list.

Miss Janice said...

We bought our house about 7 months ago and I need to remove the awful rods/lighting/hardware in our bathrooms. Love your monogrammed towels by the way.

Kate said...

Great picks! love the nautical shirt and big bow on the Blair top

Kim said...

I just found your blog and it's great! I reviewed the Jcrew ribbon blouse on my blog too, but it didn't look nearly as good on me as it does you. It looks awesome on you!! I'm jealous. I also coined it as a Blair Waldorf top - great minds ;-)

Jaina said...

Those tops are SO cute! And I love the new rods and such, they're lovely and match perfectly!

Kristin said...

The Blair top is absolutely adorable!
