It's been waaaaay tooooo long. So sorry for my absence, but my nanny/babysitter had a death in the family and had to go home for a week. All of our back up babysitters-aka our parents- were out of the country, traveling for business or extremely busy at the office and therefore could not provide their usual assistance.
Luckily for us, hubby's company has emergency daycare that you can use 3 weeks out of the year for situations just like this. I really have to take my hat off to parents who schlep their kiddos every day to daycare, summer camp, grandma and grandpa's house etc. before they head into the office. Let me just say it ain't easy getting those little guys dressed and fed and out the door early in the morning (of course I have to do this on weekends, but there isn't the pressure of being late for work). The boys ended up having a great time and enjoyed taking the subway every day, so somehow we survived.
Oh- and most importantly- we'…
I usually like to send out my seasonal trends before the season starts, but you now how it goes- Lots of real job work going on around these parts and poor StyleBurbia is suffering in my absence. At least it's still Fall and we're not up to our eyeballs in snow, right (though I did see some snow in some pictures from some of my Colorado peeps- not ready AT ALL!)?
I digress... as usual... so let's take a lookie.
Easy ways to spruce up items you may already have in your wardrobe-
animal print, leather, metallics and plaid- add a red lip and you're set.
Are you surprised? I'm sure you can't believe that I actually came back and put up another post and it didn't take me months? LoL I'm trying! So back to the porch. Welcome back. Up the stairs we go.
I can see a big improvement already. I guess it couldn't have been much worse, right?
The porch re-do all started with this bench I found at Restoration Hardware. The color scheme came from the rug, which I saw by chance at Target. I always find that when you're actually looking for something you can never find it. I thought the red and orange would be a good compliment to the pink paint of my house and porch and the maroon shutters.
