spotted: tom’s holiday 2011 10.28.2011

>

Tom’s is one of our favorite companies and their mission is so inspiring to us. Not to mention, the style of their shoes just keeps getting better and better. The holiday 2011 collection is no exception (we selected our fave picks above). We are just debating which ones we want first. No matter which pair you choose, a pair is donated to a child in need. That gets us in the holiday spirit!

We can’t get enough of the the color-dipping trend!! Wooden stools dipped in brights? Woven baskets dipped in crisp white? Silver serving pieces taking on a new life in matte color? We want it all!

house & home: our picks from west elm 10.25.2011

>

Yes, we love ourselves some West Elm! We can’t help it. They continue to reinvent themselves and we are always wanting more of what they have to offer…and no, we do not get paid for posting about our obsession…we’re just speaking from the heart! Although, if there were a such thing as “west elm dollars”, we would accept that as payment from here on out :) 
But really, I do happen to have a West Elm store credit burning a hole in my pocket right now, so I have been cruising around on their site and just wanted to share some favorites. Hope you enjoy, too!
