My Office Space

I have shared my desk space before on the blog, but with a new home comes a new office setup that I wanted to share with you! In my last place I had a tiny desk that was in the guest room, but in my new place I now have an entire room dedicated to my office, also known as the "blog room!" With this space I really wanted to incorporate items I already had in my home and add a few new details here and there. It worked out better than I had planned, and thanks to my friends at Lulu & Georgia I have added some new accessories that are both functional and make the space a little more chic! Guess what.... you can get 20% off your order until 2/3 with code emily20.

Just like every space, there are still things that I would like to add and other things that I would like to change up a bit, but I wanted to show you where I work on a daily basis. P.S. don't be fooled....my desk is hardly ever this clean! I normally have quite a few notebooks and post-its littering the surface. Along with coffee...and lots of it! 
This chevron rug adds the perfect amount of print & texture to the space. I love that the black and cream chevron is more of a neutral in the space and goes well with my patterned curtains and chair. 
I knew I wanted a gallery wall of sorts in the room, but I ultimately opted for a gallery shelf because let's face it, I am very indecisive and couldn't choose how I wanted the gallery wall to be set up. Now I can exchange the prints any time I want to give it a different look. 
I scooped up this nail head beauty at HomeGoods recently and it is not only cute, it's insanely functional. Inside it is set up for file storage. Way better than those file cabinets, am I right?
I use this shelving unit to store my notebooks, important papers, books, and my sunglasses.
Having a clothing rack has been my saving grace, since my closet is always bursting at the seams. I also use it as a place to hang times that I need to photograph for the blog. This helps me stay a little more organized, too!
I store the scarves that I wear most often in this basket from The Company Store. I have a few of these throughout my house and they are so great!
Both Charlie & Calvin approve of the new rug! They are constantly laying on it! Maybe I'm partial, but they're the cutest fur babies ever!
This Jonathan Adler zebra tray is the perfect catch all for my rings! I always sit down with my full daily jewelry on, only to realize I can't type with it all on. I love being able to have a specific spot to put it now!
I am constantly on the go, which is when my ideas always seem to hit me, so I love having a mini notebook, like this one by Kate Spade to throw in my bag for when inspiration hits! I use the green notebook by Kate Spade for every day to-do lists. 
When I'm sitting at my desk for hours on end, I need to be comfortable! I am still on the lookout for a new office chair that is chic, functional, and comfortable...but having this cool pillow for support is great!
Along with my planner, I use this weekly planner pad. I keep it right by my laptop for convenience so that I can always see my schedule and make any necessary notes throughout the day!

Casual Vibes


It’s been said before on the blog, but denim is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces. I have so many pairs in my closet, but I can never seem to have enough. Denim is a classic wardrobe staple that is perfect for day-to-day wear or a fun night out on the town with the girls. I think my favorite part about denim is that there are so many different styles, and each style can totally transform an outfit! Today I am teaming up with Sears to share some of my favorite denim styles for 2015!

So far this year I am still loving the classic style of skinny jeans. They’re a pair that everyone should have in their closet. They go well with a tee and flats or a dressy top and your favorite heels. Another style I’m loving is distressed denim. There is such a variety of this style and each pair keeps me coming back for more. I love this style paired with more casual outfits. Sears offers a large variety of both of these styles at very affordable prices, so you can grab a new pair of denim to ring in the new year….without breaking the bank!
