~neutral beach decor~{my picks}

Summer is upon us and it's time to lighten up our homes and add in some beachy touches 
{if you want!}

I love adding in bits and pieces here and there without getting too themey, is that a word?
For example, just because it's summer doesn't mean we need to go buy whale themed pillows and use fishing poles propped in a corner for decor.
It doesn't have to be so literal.
I like to mix in whites, creams, and lots of natural textures for a clean airy look.

Here are some of my favorites:

And remember, think natural woods, jute rugs, mixing whites and creams, fresh flowers and slipcovered furniture.

~mix & match white dishes~

I used to be very meticulous about having all matching dishes.
But over the years I realized that I love the mix and match look of vintage, and some new dishes.
It feels informal, which is us, we are not formal people at all!
I feel like there is a simplicity to it and I actually like the way the different dishes look all stacked in our glass front cabinets.

I always look for white ironstone when I am out thrifting, because you just can't have enough in my opinion. 
Plates, platters, trays, and pitchers are some pieces that I find almost every time I am out shopping.
I even like the look of different mugs.
The one thing to keep in mind if you go this route, is to stick with one color.

Don't be afraid to mix in a little whimsy! 
If you see something in your color, and you love it, go for it.
I love this little dog pitcher, it's so cute and I think it was 99 cents.

I also think the mixed dishes look looks great on a table setting like this.
I've been known to host Thanksgiving dinner with these dishes and it looks great no matter what time of year!

Some of my plates are simple ones from the Dollar Tree too, it doesn't need to be fancy.
Hope you are all having a great day!

~screened porches~

I am trying to convince my husband that we need one.
I'd love to have just a small one with hanging beds where the kids can have sleepovers in the summer and I can sit and read magazines :)

Something simple like this:

I mean, how complicated could it be?

I would like it to have 2 of these beds:
My friends at Hammmade Furniture have gorgeous ones they make.

A little inspiration:

Inspiring right?
Now I just gotta talk the hubs into it….

~10 things you should be buying at Walmart~

They have some hidden gems.
Here is 10 of my favorites, but I could go on and on.
Have fun shopping for little money!

This rug is beautiful.

How about this blue and white garden stool?

This coffee table opens up for tons of storage.

This mirror has a high end look for a really low price.

I am dying over how cheap this arc lamp is.
A Pottery Barn look for a fraction of the price!

2 high end looking lamps for under $150.00.

Look at all the storage in this sleek modern dresser.

I happen to think he's pretty cute.

Everyone should have cute little string lights for outdoor summer entertaining!

And finally, barstools for under $50.00 each? Yes please!

Seriously, no one will ever know you didn't dump crazy money at Pottery Barn!
It'll be our little secret!
