Recently Purchased

With the holidays now behind us, I recently put my gift card collection to work and indulged in a few purchases to help me kick off 2013 in style.

ONE // I had been searching high and low for the right rug to welcome guests to Holtwood House and lo and behold if I didn't ever find the most beautiful runner over at RugsUSA. Best part: I caught this one of a kind on sale at 65% off. Cross your fingers for me that it works out as lovely as I've imagined. Though this one is no longer available, there are some other fabulous over-dyed kilims to peruse that qualify for the discount.

TWO // The whole skinny jean phenomenon has been extremely frustrating for me. I sulked through last spring and summer, desperate for the colorful array of skinnies I could never seem to get over my knees. In these last cooler months, all I've ever really wanted was to be able to tuck some jeans into my boots and not come off looking like Santa Claus. Well friends, I've found them- the perfect skinny for us girls who have to manage through a few curves. Run to your nearest Lucky Brand store and snatch up some of the Sofia Skinnies. Tip: If you find you're between sizes, buy a size down. They will stretch (hallelujah!).

THREE // I've long lusted after this simple magazine rack from CB2 and even considered constructing a knock off of sorts. I put one of my gift cards to use and finally gave in and splurged on the real thing.

FOUR // This pretty color-block planner will arrive at my doorstep soon enough. It was one of those things I stared longingly at when I first spied it on Etsy. I feel like it was designed especially for me.
