Glamorous Weekend

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket 

Happy Friday, lovelies! And welcome to the weekend! So happy that it's finally upon us. I have a fun weekend in store. Looking forward to spending lots of time dreaming up ideas for our living room and dining room.

One of the things I learned last night was how to define my style. I think I'm going to go with comfortable romantic. I love all of the feminine and glamorous touches but first and foremost, {for J's sake to be honest.} it needs to be comfotable. {I'd probably be willing to sacrifice some of the comfort for something fabulous :)} I've already started researching some tufted setees and ottomans and some chandeliers.

I'll also be attending my cousin's bachelorette party so it'll be time to get all dolled up and hit the town with the ladies. Lucky for me, she's not super wild or cheesy, so it should be a fun and glamorous night.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I'll see you all on Monday!

xoxo

I like your definition "comfortable romantic"... seems fitting! And yes, we all have to make sacrifices for the ones we love. But honestly, when it comes to decor, I think those compromises can make a room more dynamic.
