Posh Plaid | Decorate Like You Dress


Today, I'm kicking off a new type of post here on The Lovely Side. Called 'Decorate Like You Dress,' these posts will translate fashion to interior design. If you feel great wearing something, it's likely you'll feel right at home surrounded by the same colors, textures, and trends. 

Today's outfit-to-a-room is based on Chic Street Style's Posh Plaid ensemble. It's a great fall or winter look that looks cozy, casual, and pulled-together in a living room space.



The sofa gives a nod to her camel blazer – not only in color, but also in that "curves in just the right places" structure. The key piece in her outfit is the blanket scarf, so a colorful plaid blanket is the key to this room. The classic black coffee table emulates her sleek faux leather skinnies while the black leather chair plays off of her leather bag. The curtains are simple and off-white, like her sweater underneath the jacket. 

I love the color of those oxblood booties, so I played it up on a larger scale by throwing in a rug of the same hue. The end table pulls inspiration from the dark brown and unique shape of her sunglasses, and the glittery gold accents throughout the room (lamp, bowls, clock) are inspired by her watch and bracelets. If you look closely, you'll see that the inside of her jacket is a subtle blue and white stripe, so I added a pillow with a similar pattern to the couch.

And since the street-chic outfit isn't complete without a cup of joe, you'll find a caffeinated treat on the end table and coffee art on the walls. Just for fun, some brick wallpaper adds the finishing touch.




Would you want to come home to this posh plaid space?

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.

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.)

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.
