Our Living Room Sneak Peek

Happy Thursday lovely people! I have been getting tons and tons of requests from you guys asking for some home sneak peeks, so I decided to give you all a little one of our new living room! As many of you know, last Friday was FINALLY move in day for us!! Already, we have been so happy living here and the 10 month long remodel is feeling worth it. One positive of our move in date getting pushed back again and again is how much time it gave us to pre-buy some furniture and decor so that right when we moved in it would start feeling like home instead of an empty box, which is originally what we thought would happen. I am a huge fan of patterns, as you can tell by my choice in decor, so I was beyond happy when Al agreed to making our living room pattern-ville. *Side note*, fun fact about Al and I, is when we first started dating, and even when we first purchased this house, our personal home style desires were complete opposites. He loves metals and woods and very industrial cool "Restoration Hardware" feel homes, and I wanted every single thing in my whole house white. I'm so boring, haha. I also didn't take into consideration the fact that we had a dark colored dog who is always getting into trouble, and that someday when we have babies, white would be our worst nightmare. With all that being said, we would spend day after day on sites like Pinterest and Houzz looking for styles that we wanted our home to be. We finally settled on a style I had never even heard of called scandinavian, or scandi, which is pretty much lots of black, white, and gray, lots of prints, and lots of greenery. So this is kind of the vibe we settled on but giving it our own personal touches and twists of course. 

ANYWAYS, our living room is not done yet, but it's getting there and we have found such fun pieces to make it our own that I wanted to share with you guys! Some favorites of our guests so far have definitely been our poufs, found here and here. We love our acrylic nesting tables because our living room is a smaller space, and this allows it to visually appear more open! And they show off our rug, which was BY FAR my absolute favorite thing we ordered!! I found it, and had to have it. Last thing I'll touch on is our sofa, there are about 4 of these exact couches in the Lang Family and for good reason!! It comes in tons of shapes and sizes, is one of the most comfy couches I have ever sat on, and the material of it makes it stain resistant!! So many reasons to add this sofa to your life. We got it in the color Nickel. You can find all of these things below the images as well our throw pillows and little table decor! Frenchie not included ;)

As we get more settled in, I'll be sure to bring more 'home' content to the blog and also photos that aren't taken on my iPhone, sorry about that on this post...camera is still packed away. Let me know if there is anything home related you would like to see or for me to touch on! Hope you are all having a great day and week! Xx, Karlie

Happy Valentines Day! (Decor, Clothing, & Giveaway!!)

Valentine's Day Love Balloon @karlierae

Happy Day of Love all my favorite people!! Two weeks ago I announced that I teamed up with some of my fav bloggers to give away one lucky reader a $1,000 Nordstrom gift card and today is the last day to enter so make sure you do!! Giveaway ends at midnight tonight and will be chosen tomorrow!! 

This Valentine's Day has been so fun and special so far. I celebrated 'Galentine's Day' with my best friend, Raquel, who just moved back home from Australia last week! I have missed her SO much more than you guys know!! She came and spent the past couple of days at our new house (YES WE FINALLY MOVED IN TOO!!) It has been such a great and exciting week. The past hour or so I have been cleaning and prepping dinner for tonight! I am making a cute little caprese appetizer in little heart shapes, and then for dinner...steak, pasta, and brussel sprouts. That should make the hubs happy happy happy!! Maybe not the brussels...but those are my fav so I threw them in. (I'll try to remember to snap some pics to share with ya'll!) This is our first Valentine's Day as Mr. and Mrs. and it gives me all kinds of different emotions than past Valentine's Days. Yes, the past four I have been with him and known that I was gonna wife him up, but now he really is my forever valentine and I am the luckiest girl. There is nothing I would rather be doing today or any other day than spending the evening together, in our new first home, having the little moments that turn into forever memories. 

I got this 'wifey' shirt a couple weeks ago and have been saving it to wear on Valentine's Day. If you know me, you know that I am all about the cheesy stuff, whether it's wearing a shirt around that says 'wifey' or a sweater with 50 frenchies all over it. It's just me. They also have tons of adorable graphics, not just this tee so make sure to check out here for some fun, cute attire! I also got this 'love' balloon for Valentines Day this year to add a little holiday decor to our house for the month of February. I believe you can reuse it over and over again so I am definitely keeping it around for future V Days and other events!! 

I hope you all have a lovely Valentine's Day! Sending you all my love!! XOXO, Karlie

Insta Look: Pops of Burgundy

Happy Wednesday loves! The two photos below are my previous two Instagram posts (if you don't follow, follow here!) My main reason for putting this look together was wearing my new burgundy booties (that are only $26!). Anyone else put entire looks together solely so you can wear a certain pair of shoes?!

I also get lots of questions about this denim and some other styles by the same brand that I wear pretty often! They are Cello Jeans, and sold at local retailers such as Forever 21, Charlotte Russe and Wet Seal. You know what that means, SO affordable!!

Layering is one of my favorite parts about fashion, it's fun to be able to make completely different looks even with the same articles of clothing by including some layers. I threw this look together yesterday morning before headed off to work for the day and it was both cute & comfy - WIN. 

I hope you guys are having a great week so far! Below I linked the booties & t shirt along with some of my favorite necklaces, flannels and watches since some of these are old styles! Thanks for stopping by babes! Xx, Karlie
