Y’all, this weekend has been circled on my calendar for the past month—my sister and I are heading to The Greenbrier for a winter weekend escape. When I told my Dad we were going, he went to his office and found this 1994 article about “America’s Resort” he had saved from the Richmond Times-Dispatch. I think that really goes to show what a timeless institution The Greenbrier is—and I’m so excited to enjoy the resort firsthand this weekend.
I’m leaving work several hours early so that we can arrive in time for a late dinner at Prime 44 West. Tomorrow, we’re going on the famed Bunker Tour, enjoying the spa, taking a carriage ride, and exploring the resort as much as we can. Be sure to follow along over on Instagram for some behind-the-scenes on Instagram Stories! I can’t wait to give you all a recap of our trip here on the blog once we’re back.
I’m so looking forward to a relaxing weekend out of town, and hope you have a great one, too! x Read more “Link Love, Vol. 92”
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, these pillows probably look familiar—it’s the same fabric I used on my bar stools!
Because of the great rug debate, I’ve swapped my bar stools back to a plain white fabric, but knew that I wanted to get this beautiful palm leaf fabric in my apartment somewhere. So, naturally, I turned to Michelle of Rockin’ Cushions to make me a set of custom pillow covers for my couch. She made me those beautiful bar stool covers in the fall, and I was so impressed with her work, it was a no-brainer to reach out to her when I needed the same fabric turned into pillow covers.
For those of you unfamiliar with Rockin’ Cushions, Michelle sews everything from all sorts of IKEA slipcovers to baby play mats (a great shower gift!) to party chair covers (perfect for weddings!) to the aforementioned pillows covers.
In addition to having a wide variety of beautiful fabrics offered on her site, you can also request a custom order so that when you can’t find it, Michelle will make it! Added bonus—shipping from Rockin’ Cushions is quick and for an impatient person like myself, that’s always a huge plus.

Happy President’s Day! Unlike most of my employed-by-the-Fed friends, I’m at work today. But, it’s a fun day since our office does an extreme version of take-your-child-to-work day and we get to indulge in kid food for lunch, so really, I have to no complaints.
When I did my reader survey last year, a lot of you mentioned you wanted to see more workwear. I’ve got a few what I (actually) wear to work outfits lined up to shoot when it becomes slightly warmer outside—I am not posing coatless in 30-degree weather!—but I thought in the interim, I could check in with some of my favorite workwear pieces lately.
I’d say that this time of year is probably the hardest for me to get dressed for work—I’m over my winter staples, but don’t want to spend money on anything except spring clothes, and I’m ready to ditch the tights in favor of bare legs again. Since I walk to work, I really have to dress for the weather, so I’ve just got to deal for a little while longer. I’m hoping for an early spring!
Here’s what I’ve been loving and wearing to work lately—I’d love to know what you’re living in these days on the 9 to 5. Read more “5 Workwear Pieces I’m Loving”
