One of my favorite design trends right now is Lucite furniture. I love how classy and modern it looks in a room. I purchased this chair for my office and I am so impressed by the quality. The nook where I keep my desk is pretty tight, so a Lucite chair makes the space appear less crowded. It’s also surprisingly comfortable.I thought Lucite, or acrylic, furniture was a new trend, but it’s actually been around since the 1930’s. The Louis Ghost Chair though, which we can thank for it’s recent popularity, was introduced in 2002. Lucite furniture can be pricey, but I have been able to find quite a few pieces that are affordable and still quality.
Today I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite Lucite furniture pieces and I would love to know what you think about this trend. Is it here to stay?
This year the weddings we have been invited to have been spread out throughout the whole year. We attended one beautiful winter wedding in February, a few spring and summer weddings and now we’ll be attending a fall wedding this weekend.
I love having weddings throughout the year because it’s gives me a chance to dress up more. I also just love weddings (and seeing Brett in a tux!). Who doesn’t?!? This lace dress was a bit of a spontaneous purchase, but I’m so happy I did. It fits like a glove and will be great for holiday parties later this year.
The dress I am wearing runs large so I’d recommend sizing down. I actually had to take mine in to get tailored. I have to say, having a good tailor on hand is the secret weapon to good fashion. I’ve also found a few other lace dresses that will be great for fall wedding season, which I’ve linked below. Even though I’m almost always drawn to navy dresses, I opted for the aubergine this time. Aubergine, or oxblood, are big colors for fall right now and will transition well into the holiday season. Plus lace dresses never go out of style so you’ll be able to wear it year after year.
Can we talk about just how gorgeous the weather has been this week? I know there are a lot of you out there craving cooler temps, but I for one and loving this weather! This weekend Brett and I are staying in Chicago and we don’t have a jam packed schedule. This never happens. One thing I do have planned is an afternoon with Monica and Joanne for the last outdoor market of the year at the Randolph Street Market. (Get your tickets here!) I’m also hoping we’ll get to grill out one or two more times before we have to put the grill away again.
When planning our dinner menu out for the week I often come up with dinner ideas that I’m not sure Brett will like. These Chipotle inspired chicken burrito bowls are one of those meals I thought he might humor me and try, but wouldn’t actually like. I was pleasantly surprised when he not only said he liked them, but asked for them again just a couple nights later. Dinner win! Since then, we’ve been eating them a lot.What’s great about these bowls is that you can use whatever ingredients that you have in your fridge. We’ve used both chicken and pork as the protein, and I top them off with whatever veggies we have. Green and red peppers are my favorite toppings so far! You also don’t have to stick to a Mexican flavor. This recipe for a Mediterranean burrito bowl sounds delicious and I’m thinking I might try an Asian twist on burrito bowls next.
