Military Jacket

Military Jacket








-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------


Is this not the most amazing military jacket?  At The Backdoor & Laurel Lane Market on Friday we had Mack & Mario visit the store and let me tell you they are a Pittsburgh treasure!  It's the cutest truck and she travels all over bringing little drops of fabulousness all over the Pittsburgh area.  This Saturday, May 6th she will be at Northway Christian Community for their annual craft and small business fair.  When I saw this jacket, it was love at first sight :)  It was mine!  The detail on this jacket (and all of her clothing) is beautiful.  It's also so soft and comfortable.  It will get a lot of wear and is a gorgeous addition to my closet.

This tee is also a new favorite.  So many brands that I've purchased lately have THE softest fabric.  This shirt is no exception.  This necklace too has been worn so much since I bought it (along with this necklace - and this one! Yikes!).  Aren't these booties the cutest?  The heel height is perfect so you can wear them all day without your feet hurting.

Well I know it's been a long time since I posted.  I've been so busy with opening the shop (The Laurel Lane Market with The Backdoor Furnishings) that I really have had to devote most my time to it.  But it's been a blessing and if you're in the Pittsburgh area I'd love to meet you.  So stop by say hello and pick up some goodies!

Thanks for stopping by friends, have a beautiful day!

Life Lately

Life Lately



I just fell in love with the color of these sneakers!  Because of the mesh upper and light rubber bottoms they are super comfortable too!


Cold shoulder and ruffles (more cute tops for summer here)?  Um absolutely thank you!


These are some of my new beauty essentials that I'm loving!  I started using Beautycounter because of a neighbor friend.  I was skeptical at first because honestly safe products don't usually work.  I'm telling you this brand is for real.  I love when I put on the makeup my face feels tighter and super moisturized!  

I've been using Revitalash for a while and love the results.  Now that I'm over 40 my nails, hair and eyelashes just tend to be more brittle.  This really helps to keep my lashes conditioned!

This True Grip by L'Oreal is awesome!  I just it ever so slightly on my roots and then throughout my hair for a little bump up.  Although I have a lot of hair, it's very fine, so it needs a little umpf!


Tassel earrings (herehere and here) - do I need to say more?!  :)


This was my Easter brunchin' outfit.  We had about 20 people over for our family lunch and I wanted to be casual and comfortable yet stylish.  This peplum lightweight sweater was perfect for the day and I always love wearing these wedges because they give this petite gal some height!  I've really fallen in love with a lot of J.Crew's jewelry right now (and it's 25% off!).


If you don't know I'm excited to be collaborating with a local Annie Sloan chalk paint stockist, The Backdoor Furnishings  We're opening up a home decor shop within her shop this Monday!  It's coming up fast and I still have so much to do.  I can't wait to share it all with you.  If you live in the Pittsburgh area, be sure to stop by on Monday, April 24th to check out all the goodies :)  Find my necklace here (25% off!)

Follow along on Instagram and Instastories for more sneak peeks and my daily life.  And don't forget to sign up for the new LiketoKnow.it app!  Just screenshot a Instagram photo and it will pop up in your LtK.it app for quick shopping!

Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by!

A Perfect Combo

A Perfect Combo




This is such a cute top and it combines 2 perfect trends this season - ruffles and cold shoulder :)  It's a sweatshirt but the fabric is not thick and super soft!  It also comes in black and petal pink (which I might just have to order)...  I'm wearing an XS.  What you can't see are these cutie flare crop jeans.  I love crop jeans for both dressing up and down with either sneaks (just ordered these cute pink ones and there are so many pretty ones here) or sandals.

Here are more amazing cold shoulder pieces below



Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday lovelies!  Did you have a good weekend?  I hope so.  I worked at The Backdoor Furnishings this weekend getting ready for a grand opening on April 24th! :)  I cannot wait to share it with you.

Today I'm giving a little hint on what you might find at the shop.  Can you pick it out?  You'll see more on Instagram (@thelaurelane) and Facebook from The Laurel Lane & The Backdoor Furnishings.  I know, I know, I'm wearing another twist knot tee.  But I love them and they very flattering.  These bootie wedges are going to be a spring favorite.  The weather hasn't cooperated to wear them until now, but they are so comfortable.  Just enough heel to give me some height, but not too high.

One more thing to mention sweet people is an amazing giveaway that I'm participating in with some wonderful IG accounts.  Check it out here.

Have a beautiful day.

Vintage Dresser - For Sale!

Vintage Dresser - For Sale!









Farmhouse Vintage Dresser for Sale - $450

Hello friends!  I hope you're having a wonderful day.  Since moving to our new house I have become friends with an incredible woman, Laura.  She owns The Backdoor Furnishings, a stock store  for Annie Sloan paint.  I'm so thrilled to now be working with Laura and her store on a new project coming the end of this month :)  Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to get sneak peeks for more of our special project!

Annie Sloan paint is amazing (I can't believe I have just found it!) and has me hooked on refinishing furniture.  I typically hate painting (walls, molding - which by the way I still have sooo much to do in my house), but this type of painting is so relaxing.  It really allows me to slow down and be creative!

This is my first piece for sale!  This is a vintage dresser with 4 drawers, 2 small upper and 2 large bottom drawers perfect for sweaters and other large pieces.  The mirror is detachable and adjustable.  This piece was painted with Annie Sloan, French Linen paint.  A white wax was applied with a touch of black wax and also distressed with black wax to give it a little driftwood finish.  A glaze was applied to some of the detailed wood work.  The hardware is original and been polished/cleaned.

I have staged the dresser with a few pieces that are a sneak peek of what is to come from my project with Laura!  Be sure to follow The Backdoor Furnishings on Facebook and Instagram for announcements, project ideas and classes she offers on painting and waxing.

Are you or someone you know interested in this beautiful dresser :)?  I'm offering it for sale for $450.  It can be delivered it up to 50 miles from Pittsburgh.

Thanks for stopping by!

Weekend

Weekend








-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

Gibson tee  ||  J Brand jeans (priced matched!), similar less expensive white jeans  ||  Nike sneakers  ||  Ray Ban sunnies  ||  Boden handbag, similar here (love all these pink bags)  ||  Kendra Scott necklace  ||  NARS lipstick (Angelika)

Happy Monday!  We finally had a nice day after several days of chilly, rainy weather.  April showers I guess?  :)  The grass is getting greener, the buds are coming out and some flowers are sprouting.  Yay, spring is finally here!

Things have been so busy here but I got a chance to go to one of my favorite local shops here that had a grand re-opening.  It's a salvage shop with old doors, windows, barn wood - love it!  I got a great sign for my husband and his wood shop (which we are finally getting together).  You can follow me on Instagram and my Instastories for more fun and details.

This top from Gibson is ahhhmazing.  I have bought several of their tops lately and they fabric is just unbelievably soft.  It's the perfect weekend top.  I'm sure you all have seen these sneakers around right?  They are every bit as comfortable as everyone says and I found them here in so many awesome colors :)



Thanks for reading!
