MC Home

I finally found chairs for my coffee table. I decided on chairs instead of a couch 
because I have this cozy little nook in my studio and it's just too small for a sofa. 
I love the idea of being tucked away in the nook while enjoying a glass of wine with a friend.
I'm still on the hunt for pillows and wall art to complete the seating area. 

I found the upholstered chairs at Home Goods and got an amazing deal!
I instantly fell in love with the subtle print and studs lining these oversized chairs.
I didn't realize until I got them home that they are Cynthia Rowley - I adore them even more now!
I also found a vintage-inspired glass jar which now holds my ever-growing nail polish collection.

{Current/Elliot Jeans}

Last week a co-worker and I discovered the Joie employee store at their corporate office 
right around the corner from BCBG. The employee store is not only for employees luckily. 
We ventured to the store on our lunch break for a little retail therapy. 

We found clothes & shoes from Joie, Equipment and Current/Elliot at sample sale prices.
I was drooling over the racks of printed dresses & silk blouses and tables piled with stacks of denim.
 I love a good classic wash to mix in with my colored denim. I scored this pair of perfectly-fitting skinnies for just $40!

Must Have: Cut Offs

With record-breaking heat across the country, 
there's no better way to keep cool and fashionable than denim cut offs. 
Try pairing them with sheer flowy tops or take a classic approach with a simple white tee.
Wedges & platform sandals kick this summer look up a notch.

I love having a clothing rack to display the items that I find myself reaching for day after day 
this season: girly dresses and a leather jacket for the chilly nights. 

Clothing Rack - Ikea
Wood Hangers - Target
Turquoise Coffee Table - Etsy
Chevron Rug - Urban Outfitters

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Anyone who says they don't eat the batter while they bake chocolate chip cookies is lying.
But gone are the days of worrying about Salmonella after I found this recipe on 
Pinterest via Fun Foods on a Budget - chocolate chip cookie dough with no eggs!

{Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman}

I start my mornings by reading Cupcakes and Cashmere with a cup of coffee.
When Emily announced she was writing a book, I knew it would be a must-read.
I had been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the book and last night
a package was nestled at my door when I came home from work.
After tearing open the box, I promptly read it cover to cover,
enjoying each page more than the previous and feeling inspired.
