Runway to Rooms

It’s been a long while since I have done a “Runway to Rooms” post.  I have been coveting these amazing Suzani-inspired Lilly Pulitzer sun dresses all summer, and a beautiful room to match would be the best accessory!

Today We Celebrate….

The unofficial start of summer….


Lilly Pulitzer….

White Sandals….


Family and friends….

And most importantly, today we celebrate all of the heroes who have given their lives defending our country….

As the wife of a former active duty Army officer who spent a year in Iraq, this holiday always hits home with us.

Happy Memorial Day.  Don’t forget to thank a service member and their family today.

Seasonal Stocking Sampler

It’s almost time to deck the halls!  In our house, each year we hang a hodge podge of stockings that include our childhood stockings and various newer stockings that we have picked up along the way.  I like the nostalgia and “vintage” look, but everytime Christmas rolls around again, I am tempted to buy a set that all match.  Here are some of the best around:

I love the muted colors of these stockings from Garnet Hill ($38 each).  How about those ruffles — adorable!  Free monogramming too!


The Scandinavian feel of this Colossal Sweater Stocking from Anthropologie ($148) is fabulous.  I love the pom poms too! 


Sorry for the small image, but you should check out these shell stockings from Horchow ($148).  They would be great for all of the snow birds who flock south for the winter.  The detailing is amazing and I love the neutral color scheme. 


Speaking of a tropical Christmas, aren’t these Lilly Pulitzer stockings so much fun?

These Vera Bradley stockings are unexpectedly preppy and fun too ($22).  I like the little pocket in the front for a bonus stocking stuffer!  (sorry for the blurry picture).


If you are looking for something more traditional, I like these knit stockings from Pottery Barn Kids ($29 each).  The fair isle sweater vibe is Christmas cozy!  Oh, and free shippping too. 


These patchwork stockings from Pottery Barn ($24) are pretty too and would look great hung on any mantle.  Monogramming is available and free shipping again!


I like the homemade feel of these unique stockings from Unica Home:  


[Cool Pointsettia Stocking, $50]


[Birds Holiday Stocking, $42.50]

And I am loving this retro reindeer stocking from Bebesniklefritz on Etsy ($22):


And last, but not least, my favorite stockings of the season are from Plum Cushion on Etsy ($40 each).  I found these when Plum Cushion was featured on Little Green Notebook, and fell in love!


So, which are your favorite?  Are your stockings matching or do you have a hodge podge of different stockings hung on your hearth? 

Merry merry!
