Summer Shopping

With all of the house excitement, I have very much neglected my closet. Before we moved out, I did a huge closet clean-out of clothes that didn't fit, I didn't wear, or I didn't like. What I didn't think about was the fact that it would leave me with a steady rotation of 2-3 tops and a dress or two for summer...and that's it. 

Thankfully, there are tons of sales happening this weekend, so I am using that to my advantage. I'm scooping up basics and neutrals for summer that I can mix up with accessories to make them unique. Below are a few of the items that I grabbed (all from J.Crew Factory's 50% off sale or Loft's 40% off sale). Are you doing any shopping this weekend? Tell me where you've found the good deals!

PPD Renovates: The outside is DONE

I mentioned a few days ago that we finally moved into our house. Our official move-in date was April 22 which means that as of today, we've been in our house for about three weeks. We spent the first two weeks battling boxes, trying to figure out where furniture was going to live, and what we needed to wrap-up. That meant someone knocking on the door almost daily trying to finish the job.



While the inside of our house is far from finished, the outside of our house is actually done! It's crazy to think that just five months ago, we had very different curb appeal (although it wasn't very appealing). Now we have grass (first time ever), gorgeous plants like hydrangeas, Boston ivy, and ferns, and a stoop that seriously makes me so happy. That pink brick is perfection against Farrow & Ball's Purbeck Stone

Our front door is custom, and while that sounds fancy pants/expensive, it was actually more cost effective to have our door custom-made than to buy it from the lumbar yard. Trust me, I was shocked, too. Since we have a door with glass, I won't get to have a fun door knocker, so we decided to make a statement with our hardware. I love the Baldwin Nashville more than I ever thought I would. It really partners well with our gas lanterns which are made by a company out of Fairhope, Alabama - just over the bay from Mobile which I think is so cool.

Of course, I had to add a cute doormat. I'm pretty sure I'll be swapping these out regularly, but I think this pineapple one was a great starting point. I've rounded-up a few of my other favorite welcome mats below! 

Stay tuned for even more house updates, and if you can't wait for a blog post, I'm giving lots of them on IG stories, so follow along there!
