Preppy Window Shades cont.

Hello Lovelies,


You may remember when I shared the Southern Living suggestion to customize a window shade with a paint and a stencil (original post here)... well, in May's issue of Good Housekeeping, they offer another twist on the idea by adding a ribbon around the shade... (I've also seen people update their shower curtains, and even regular curtains by adding their own ribbon trim). I'm wondering if all these articles keep touting the benefit of the pull down shade... does that mean we can expect to see more pull down shades in the future? A part of me hopes not!

A cute scarf can totally make an outfit and it definitely does in this case. I love the pattern on that! The chunky heels look really cute and comfortable too.

That window shade with ribbon trim is very cute!

You look great and that shade is so cute with the ribbon! Wow, 50 days with different work outfits, I'm impressed. That would be hard to do for me. Yes, it's so much easier to grab one item when I'm packing my bag at 4:30am before I go to the gym. Less coordinating involved. Your scarf is so pretty. Have a great weekend!

I like pull down shades in a kitchen or bathroom, not really in the rest of the house. How cute would that shade be in a blue and white vintage looking kitchen?

I want that scarf!
