Hello, loves! Happy Monday. We went to Clemson this past weekend for the homecoming game. I really don’t have any orange in my closet except this top from J. Crew. I wore it with shorts to the first home game at the beginning of September, but changed the look by pairing it with these jeans and these booties

Oh, and just so you know, J. Crew is offering 25% off full price items with code STYLETREAT, as well as an extra 30% off final sale styles.

One of our friends was celebrating his 27th birthday at their tailgate. They all brought 90s themed things. Cheese Balls (as in the crunchy kind, not the kind you spread on crackers!), 90s music, and lots of other treats including Surge. Please tell me y’all remember this drink. It was a blast from the past! Apparently, they have brought it back and it’s now available (if you can catch it quickly!) on Amazon.

My mom was so sweet to get a breakfast nook table for us that I’ve had my eye on. It’s an antique oak table that has been refinished with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to play into its distressed look. Charleston peeps, it was done by Handpainted Furniture by Liz. She’s amazingly talented at spotting interesting, high quality pieces and refinishing them in awesome ways. She will do commission work, too.

I absolutely love this table. I’m thinking about pairing bamboo Chippendale chairs with it. Thoughts? Also need to find a great rug for underneath. Aaaand still need a dining room table. I’m not in any rush, though. The first order of business is still to paint the walls before we do anything else. We hope to tackle that later this week and weekend.

Don’t forget that the Ann Taylor 50% off entire purchase sale ends tonight at midnight! If you missed it, I listed my top picks from the site on Friday. I scooped up this jacket and am hoping it works out. 

In other news, Winston is loving the new house. He gets to play outside while I have my morning coffee. He’ so funny how he just freezes when I take a photo. It’s like it’s his model pose.

I did take him to Clemson with me this weekend. He’s a champ at what ended up being a 4.5 hr car ride. I can’t help but wonder what people think as they see us driving down the road…. “That girl has a CAT on her lap!?” Oh well, he’s toteable and I’m glad.

    Love that orange top! Also, your kitchen table is amazing. And yes, Surge! Doesn't it have a ton of caffeine?? xo

    Has Winston always been exposed to the outdoors? Sometimes I think I'd like to let my cat, Javert, out on our deck to see new things, but I'm SO fearful of him getting spooked and running off… I think my guy is too timid because he also can't handle car rides (or maybe Winston is just extra brave!).

    Love the table!! I would love to travel with my cat. Is Winston accustomed to traveling with you?

    Uh I love that table.

    I LOVED Surge. LOVED. I miss Josta so much.
