Fall for Orange

Foliage is in full-swing in the blogosphere.  While I'm definitely a late-spring/early-summer type of girl, I swoon over the changing of leaves every year.  I think autumn would my favorite season if it didn't mean that cold and snow were right around the corner!

In the spirit of this colorful season, I want to dedicate a few posts to incorporating autumn's most vibrant colors into your decor scheme.  And as you can tell about this post's title... I'm starting out with fall's quintessential hue: orange.

My favorite thing about orange is that it's said to inspire creativity and enthusiasm.  (And a blogger/writer/crafty girl like myself can always use more creativity!)  Orange possesses some of the same fiery energy as red, but on a less explosive level.  Orange can also stimulate the appetite, help to balance stress and emotions, and improve your ability to quickly adjust to change.

So really, what's not to love?

Pumpkins.  Fall leaves.  Clementines.  Peaches.  Carrots.  Monarch butterflies.  Sunsets.  Some of the best things in life are orange.

I like the orange house the best! The Victorian houses are cool by themselves, but the color really adds to this one!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
