Sequin Romper







Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson



If I'm being honest, I've always had a thing for sequins...from my first dance recital until now, I just LOVE them.  The sparkle, the shine, the glimmer...what's not to love?!  Sequins instantly elevate your look and they personally make me feel glamorous.

This sequin romper is sexy and sophisticated...the perfect combo.  If you aren't comfortable with the deep v of the neckline, you can always wear a lace brallette underneath for a bit more coverage.  But I say go for it and own it!  Plus, you can always wear something like a faux leather jacket or a blazer over top as well.

I've worn this romper on so many different occasions...most recently I wore it in Las Vegas when Peter surprised me with a weekend getaway for our 10 year wedding anniversary.  And I must say that this romper is so perfect for ringing in the New Year too!  It's fun, it's festive, and it is sure to make a statement.  PLUS, it is on sale for $45!!!  For a size reference I am wearing a medium.

We don't currently have any New Year's Eve plans, with two little ones often times it is hard to find a sitter, so I may be living vicariously through some of you!  What type of New Year's Eve plans do you have?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, have an awesome day!

Perfect Holiday Gifts with New York & Company

* Today's post was in collaboration with New York & Company via Shopping Links.


Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson

It's officially December, we are counting down the days on our advent calendar, and I still have plenty of shopping to do.  I envy those of you who have already checked everyone off of your list...BRAVO!  But I know there are others (probably many) who haven't finished shopping and who are still looking for great gift ideas!

I'm not sure who you have left to buy for but today's post is all about those amazing ladies in your life.  I have a few girlfriends still to buy for and a Secret Santa exchange coming up with a group of my friends and I've already picked out the perfect gifts from New York & Company.  I previously shared some of my favorite picks with New York & Company and you can visit that post HERE.

Speaking of Secret Santa...how fun is it that the items in today's post were picked out for me by another Blogger, Tandya, of the blog Simply Tandya (www.simplytandya.com).  New York & Company hosted a Blogger Secret Santa and we each picked out holiday inspired pieces for a Secret Santa exchange!  This was such a fun post to put together and I'll be sharing what Tandya picked out for me!











I had so much fun unwrapping my box of goodies and seeing all that was inside!  Tandya picked out a few different tops for me...this cold shoulder sweater, this off the shoulder sweater, and this embellished button down top.  She also filled my box with several gorgeous accessories including this jeweled pouch, this reversible gold card holder,  and this cosmetic case.  And how perfect are these lace up heels?!








As you can see, New York & Company has so many great gift options for those ladies in your life and they are all so affordably priced too!


Now off to finish checking those ladies off of your list...Happy Shopping friends!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!

Under Our Fee with Rugs USA








Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


One rug at a time, we are creating warmth and the feeling of home all around our new house.  All of our rugs, with the exception of 1, have come from Rugs USA and I can't speak highly enough about the broad selection and the quality of their rugs!

We've truly been pleased with each and every rug that we have ordered from Rugs USA.  Sometimes it can be a challenge to pick out a rug online...especially since you cannot see it in person and touch it to get a feel for the quality.

I can speak from experience, multiple experiences at that, that what you see on their site is what you get!  Their descriptions are accurate, the colors are, for the most part, spot on (keep in mind, a rug may look a little different once you place it in your own space), and the quality is fantastic.  Not to mention, their rugs are so reasonably priced...they make it easy for me to never want to shop elsewhere.  After all, why would I?!  They have received 5 stars in my book with every purchase.

One of the things that I love most about Rugs USA is their broad selection.  Their rugs are unique and you can find exactly what you are looking for...from traditional to modern to bohemian, they have it all!

The rug that I picked for our library is their "Chroma CB23 Hazy Damask Medallion Mirage" rug.  I love the sand color background with the subtle colors throughout and the damask medallion print.  It was exactly what I was looking for and I know that I will have so many options when decorating our library.

Now that our beautiful new rug is in, I can concentrate on furniture pieces for this space, filling our bookcase, and adorning the walls with framed art.

Have you ever purchased a rug from Rugs USA?!  If not, I highly recommend that you consider doing so or at least browsing their site.  I guarantee you are on their site for a while looking at all of their gorgeous rugs!  I personally have an ongoing wish list until we have all spaces covered with one of their rugs.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Wishing you all a great start to the month of December...so hard to believe it is December 1st!

Dressed Up in Storets

I've posted about Storets before and how much I love all of their pieces...quite frankly, I'm obsessed!  Their pieces are so unique...you won't find them elsewhere.

Here are some of my favorites!

Cozy with Home Living






Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Last night I had a moment where I was sitting in our living room, with the subtle twinkle of our Christmas tree and the crackle of our fireplace, thinking about how much I enjoy being at home with my family.  The saying "home is where the heart is" couldn't ring more true, especially this time of year.

I've felt sentimental lately recognizing how quickly time passes and how fast our children are growing up.  This year has flown by, it feels like I have blinked and we've gone from January 1st to now almost December 1st. We busy ourselves with places to go and people to see and often times I just want us to cuddle up in our home and just be together...just the 6 of us (pups included)!  Call me selfish but lately, I've kind of wanted my family just to myself.

I'm pretty certain I was spoiled being able to spend every waking moment with them last week at Disney World.  It was amazing spending so much time together...time that we often don't get enough of.

Okay, sorry for the sentimental moment here but I am saying all of this because I am sharing a piece of our home with you today.  You won't see many personal posts on KBStyled and you also won't see much of our children (just personal choice, I'm rather protective of my babies) but I do love changing pace sometimes and sharing something outside of my typical style or beauty posts.

Just a few short months ago we purchased a new home and it feels AMAZING digging our roots in and making Nashville even more of our home than it has been over the past 4 years.

Part of digging in roots for us meant buying our house, check, and then of course comes the fun part...decorating!  We parted with much of what we had from years past because we wanted to start fresh...a new beginning of sorts.

So in these images, you will see lots of bare walls (we've made some progress since these pics were taken), very few accessories, and empty spaces.  We have lots to do but we know that slow and steady will win the race in the long run and that we will ultimately have it decorated just as we envision.

I'm a HUGE fan of decorative pillows...Peter would probably tell you that I tend to go overboard with the pillows but I truly feel that they immediately elevate your space.  They are an affordable accessory that you can easily change to alter the appearance of your space.

It was a a lot of fun to pick out the pillows for our couch and Joan & Rachel of HomeLiving on Etsy were delightful to work with.  We bought our area rug first and I picked the Velvet Cheetah pillow cover & the Blue Floral print cover to coordinate with our new rug.  I exchanged numerous messages with Joan & Rachel to ensure that I was picking pillow covers that would look great in our space.  I was so pleased when we received our new pillows...they fit in perfectly with my vision.

Working with HomeLiving was a pleasure and I would highly recommend this Etsy shop if you are in  the market for decorative pillows at an affordable price!

I'd love to know if you have any favorite stores, shops, etc that you like to shop at for home accessories, etc.  I'm always on the lookout for beautiful new pieces!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and today, for letting me share a place that is very special to me.  Have a great day!

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR HER



The holidays are upon us and I'm so excited to kick off my gift guide series!  There are so many great gift guides out there but I will be searching high and low for amazing gifts that will help you check your family and friends off of your list (all while keeping your holiday shopping budget in mind because believe me, we all have one).

I hope to make your holiday shopping a bit easier and if you are anything like me, the crowds and long lines at most retailers this time of year continues to steer me more and more towards online shopping.  I'll pay a little extra for shipping if I don't have to fight traffic and wait in those long lines!

I'd also love to hear who you are shopping for this season so let me know by leaving a comment below!  If you need help, just let me know...I'm happy to help you get a jump start on your shopping this season!

Today, I've started with the ladies!  It's always much easier for me to shop for the women in my life because the options are abundant and there are just soooo many wonderful gifts for women.  So fellas, if you are reading this, take note!  I've picked just a few of my favorite gifts so far and there will be more to come.

I handpicked each of these gift ideas and I love them all but I must say that I adore these tassel earrings and these cashmere gloves (which are such a great buy)!  And personally I want to curl up in this turtleneck poncho.  What I love most about gifting a poncho or even a blanket scarf is that that both are great pieces for just about anyone.  If you aren't exactly sure of someones size, these are perfect because they are essentially 1 size fits all.

I'm all about giving the gift of comfort each season as well and this fleece robe is so dreamy!  Talk about being snuggly and warm all winter long.  Does anyone else live in their robe at home?!  I know I do!

AND I am totally OBSESSED with this druzy ring...I want one for myself!!!  It is so unique and fun...a statement piece that a jewelry loving gal in your life is sure to love!

If you are hanging in today, doing some online shopping, I hope you will take some time to check out my favorite picks for HER!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
