The Ultimate Bag Organizer
If you're anything like me, you like to carry the essentials in your everyday bag. But sometimes, said essentials can take over your bag. Things get cluttered and then it's impossible to find what you're looking for. Enter Totesavvy. The Totesavvy is a bag organizer designed to hold an infinite amount of supplies, all while keeping things neat and tidy. It comes in two sizes -- the regular size has 11 pockets (including an insulated bottle pocket) and the Mini has 6 pockets.
Between the two sizes, you have an organizing solution to fit all of your favorite bags. Here, I paired the regular Totesavvy with Madewell's new Zip-Top Transport Tote...it is a *perfect* fit in this tote! I went with black because it's versatile, but the Totesavvy is available in several colors. And they aren't just for diaper bags. I'm well beyond the diaper-bag stage and I have 2 Mini's and a regular-sized Totesavvy...I will not carry a bag without them. Totesavvy has literally thought of everything so you don't have to think twice about finding your chapstick or car keys or hand sanitizer or wallet or...you get the idea!
An Affordable Outdoor Sectional
A few years ago, I was looking for a large outdoor sectional for our back porch. It was tough to find anything budget-friendly in the size that I needed. I was just about to give up when I stumbled across this AE Outdoor Cedar Grove Sectional Set from Sam's Club. It comes in various orientations...I chose the 9-piece that has an L-shaped couch with two ottomans. The Cast Ash color is the perfect weathered gray and the set is less than half the price of similar options I researched. Several options are sold out online, but keep an eye out...they might restock in time for summer!
Striped Outdoor Rug
Speaking of the great outdoors, I shared a post on the blog last week all about how to use outdoor rugs. Since that post, I found this really great striped outdoor runner from Wayfair. I love the tan and white variegated stripes...and you can bet I've already cut it to fit my front porch step!
The Lantern Obsession Continues
Confession: I have a stash of lanterns in our attic. I think they're so versatile -- whether it's on a table, a shelf, the back deck or your front porch, lanterns always feel welcoming to me. Plus, I love to fill them with other things besides candles! I just purchased the Caleb Lantern from Pottery Barn for our living room hearth. It's got a great transitional feel to it, which makes it an easy addition to a variety of styles.
