Baseball fever is at an all time high here in my hometown of Kansas City.  Our beloved Royals are making an unbelievable run in the playoffs for the first time in 29 years.  29 years people!  If that doesn’t give us an excuse to celebrate, I don’t know what does.  So I’m leading this week’s favorite links off with this baseball themed party idea.

Need a break from your skinny jeans?  Boyfriend jeans are as comfy as they are chic.  Here are 3 ways to wear them.

Cool autumn nights call for fire pits and s’mores.  This round-up of 15 s’more recipes takes the tasty treat to a whole new level.

You know how you see jeans and sleeves rolled perfectly in the store but when you get home, you struggle to replicate the look?  Well now you, too, can tuck, tie, roll and twist your clothes like a stylist.

My favorite pin of the week will make you want to take your jewelry out of the box and incorporate it in your home decor instead.

Go Royals!

Weekend Bits – Links I Love

Has anyone else noticed that the moment the 4th of July holiday has passed, you start hearing murmurs about summer being almost over?  I’m opting for the glass is half full perspective and plan to enjoy the weeks and weeks of warm weather still ahead of us.  There are so many possibilities for summer entertaining that I haven’t taken advantage of yet.  One of my favorite ideas is hosting a backyard movie night.  And all the visual inspiration I need is right here.

I’ve got a thing for a wall filled with photos and prints displayed in different ways.  My tendency has always been to go with the classic look of black frames with an ivory mat, but I’m loving this twist of using colored mats with black and white prints.  A perfect way to add color to a media room!

My collection of costume jewelry has definitely outgrown the jewelry box that sits on my dresser.  I’m not really a jewelry armoire type of girl so I’ve been looking for fun and different ways to organize my baubles.  I hit the jackpot of roundups with these 75 creative ways to organize your jewelry.  Definitely some pin worthy ideas to try.

It’s the start of tomato season in the Midwest and there are so many delicious ways to use them.  This recipe for caprese salad makes a simple and colorful appetizer.

I’m a fan of finding unique home accessories at vintage shops and flea markets so I enjoyed reading this blog post about using accessories to tell your story.

Enjoy your Sunday!
