Tween Bedroom Makeover for Sofia

Hi!

Today I am SO excited to be sharing Sofia’s bedroom upgrade with you all! I absolutely loved creating this space for her and seeing the reaction on her face when I showed her the room! Sofia loves two things all things white, along with simple gold accents. I kept both of these things in mind while I helped design this new space for her. Her grandparents were nice enough to purchase all of the bedroom furniture for her. This was her birthday/graduation gift and we are very lucky and thankful for that:) Sofia and I selected all of her furniture from Wayfair.com. We have had so much luck with everything we purchased from them in the past so I thought it would be a great place to purchase all of her bedroom furniture as well.

Here was the initial design board that I created for this space. Design boards are essential to begin with when redesigning any space. Visually seeing the furniture and the other elements you would like to add into a room are key to making sure you really like what you are about to purchase. We did a gold, black, and white color scheme throughout and it turned out so great:)

As you can see all of the furniture is white but different shades which gives the room as you can see a contrast in itself. What was great about ordering from Wayfair was the delivery process which was all so new to me. They not only delivered everything to our house but they brought it into the room that it needed to go to and it WAS already assembled! Was not expecting that at all but was so pleasantly surprised because usually furniture is left outside of your front door step.

Some of the items we used to decorate here space are all linked below:

These are the globe lights we used in her room from Target:

This is the throw we bought for Sofia’s bedding to go over the top. Throw blankets are like finishing touches to a bed.

Cream Fringe Lumbar Pillow - Opalhouse™ - image 1 of 4

I LOVE this fringe pillow. It has gold sequins sewed into it and it pops perfectly on Sofia’s bed:)

Sofia’s bed comforter

We accessorized her room with a lot of the same frames we had in her previous bedroom but we did add in some gold accents because Sofia LOVES gold. We got a lot of the frames and accessories below from TJMAXX. What is great about this room is that it is now a relaxing oasis for Sofia to go to when she gets home from school and unwinds. The desk in her room is so important for her to utilize for studying, writing essays, and getting things done.

 

I really like my new room because it has a nice gold decorations like the pineapples that I mixed with everything that I LOVE!

Warm weather is here in New England! Outfit selections to wear for each occasion:)

Hi!!!

I am so excited that we have this amazing warm weather here in New England! It’s about time! I wanted to compile a list of different outfit ideas to wear depending on what type of event you are going to this spring and summer especially because bridal showers and wedding season is here!

This navy blue and white jumper I got from Illa Illa USA, but I actually picked it up last summer so I am not sure if they still have it. Worth a try though:) Check them out! http://www.illaillausa.com/

This site has great party dresses as well as casual attire!

It is so so comfortable, and great for a night out to dinner, or even a barbecue or date night cocktails outside!

Jumpers are a great way to take a day outfit right into an evening outfit! Also, they are so comfortable! I paired this outfit with a hat I got from Target, and some very simple and dainty white bangles I have had forever. I think I got them at a consignment shop actually. The gladiator sandals I am wearing are from Steve Madden and they are SO comfortable. Another TJ Maxx score! As mentioned in my recent post this hat is from Target! They have SOO many others just like this at the store as well.

Here are some other picks for any summer occasion that you can dress up from day to night:) All of the below picks of mine are from Nordstrom Rack! I linked all of the items for you to reference as well!

Beginning with a more formal white and black dress both are PERFECT for a cocktail party or a bridal shower for all of you soon to be brides!
