So I know it's fall, but I'm still kind of loving the crop top trend right now. It's still rather warm outside here in Texas, so I feel like I can get away with it for at least another few weeks:) Today I'm sporting a complete look from one of my favorite online shops, LuLu*s. I have literally clothed myself from top to bottom with items from LuLu*s and I'm loving every single piece.
So what's your favorite piece?? I think mine might be the neon clutch - it's completely beaded and has such an amazing design. I also really love my heels as well. They are nude and literally go with just about every outfit.
Welcome back to Work it Wednesday everyone!! So many fun things are going on here at The Blissful Bee - We closed on our house last week and moved in over the weekend. I literally have the whole house designed and cannot wait to start revamping everything. I also have a Visa gift card giveaway going on right now, so click here to enter!
So the day has come! I can finally show you all our "new-to-us" home! It was a long weekend for sure, and I might be sitting at my computer with tissue up my nose and a cough drop in my mouth, but it was all worth it. We're mostly moved in and couldn't be more thankful. The home is a classic 1950's ranch style 3 bed 2 bath in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Fort Worth. We have a TON of plans for this house and cannot wait to get started.
One of our main projects is to paint the exterior of the home and to add some thicker columns to the front porch. Depending on the color we chose for the brick, we might also update the shutters and paint the door. More to come on that!
Just about every room has a design plan already, but there are so many details that I will save those for another post. Above is the entry and below is the formal living and dining. We plan to open up some walls and update the flooring throughout, but that will all be determined by the budget eventually.
Above is our den which will be our casual living space. Below is the kitchen which will also contain a ton of projects. Cabinets will be painted and remember, all flooring will be updated throughout the entire house. You might have also noticed the assortment of builder basic, too-big-for-the-space light fixtures… yes, those will be gone as well.
Below is the room extended off the kitchen. This is where we will place our casual dining area.
Above is our guest bath and below is our master bath. Both have an eventual plan, but will most likely stay as is for a little while. We have a lot of projects to tackle first, so these bathrooms will have to remain last on the list!
Below is our backyard which doesn't really show well in this picture. These photographs are all from online (the listing photos), so they aren't the best quality. Once I find the time, I will try to take some better photographs for you guys. But I digress! The backyard is beautiful and filled with tall trees and an amazing covered back porch.
I'm so excited to finally have a house to call our own and cannot wait to start sharing all of my projects with you guys. And if any of you were wondering how our two little furballs have adjusted, they've been doing just fine! It took Bailey about 2 days of hiding under our bed (and other random dark crevasses), and Bella just one day of hiding in our closet, but last night once all the craziness settled, the girls were out and about.
Happy Friday everyone! Today we finally start moving into our new house and I cannot even express how excited I am! After a long and stressful week (wasn't even sure if we were going to close on time) I am SO ready to get moved in! Since today is rather busy for me, I thought I would pop in real quick to share my latest video from Design Worth Doing. Every year, Fort Worth, Texas magazine puts together an amazingly beautiful Dream Home for the public to tour and one lucky Fort Worthian to purchase. This year I had the pleasure of interviewing the talented interior designer behind the home and she even gave me a personal little tour.
Here are some of my favorite spaces in this year's dream home. To see the full tour, check it out here!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Wish me luck with the move!
