Weekend Roundup 

Comfy & cozy is key, now that I am in the third trimester. Cardigan | tankleggings  | boots | handbag | styling wand

A $6 manicure in under 5 minutes, is the ultimate quick fix, when in a jam. A little filing and you’re good to go.

I covered old cornices that we already had instead of buying or creating new ones. My overall vision was during a textured grey cornice, tufting it with nickel nailheads, and adding textured drapes in a contrasting color, to give it depth, instead of trying to make it “matchy.” Tufted Cornice DIY - TheSubtleStatement.com #homedecor #diyMeasure the width of your cornice, including each of the sides and add at least 2″ to each side to staple, and determine the amount of yards of fabric you will need. Cover your cornice with the fabric, pulling it tight as you go, and stapling it along the edge to secure it.

Next, measure a straight line around your cornice, making a square, of where you will apply your nailhead trim. Carefully, place the nails and hammer in to secure. Tufted Cornice DIY - TheSubtleStatement.com #homedecor #diy

I bought a basic curtain rod and we installed it underneath the cornice and added contrasting textured curtains.

I don’t own a matching bathing suit. In my everyday wardrobe, I just don’t like matching in any sense. Instead, I choose to compliment. That’s why I’m loving the Peter Pilotto collection for Target. Everything can easily be mixed and matched, for a fun Spring/Summer vaca vibe. The cropped bikini tops are right on trend with the season’s playful length, and pair with almost everything in the collection. Have you snagged any pieces from the collection yet?
