The Front Door of Our Dreams

June 26, 2015

I see the topic of “curb appeal” buzzing around online a lot these days, and to me it seems pretty simple: have a killer front door.  It serves as the welcoming gate (literally and figuratively) into the home, and often times people don’t give it the attention it deserves.  The slideshow above has me inspired to consider taking a few extra steps to designing my front door someday, whether that’s with a set of boxwood topiaries, an amazing doorbell, or maybe even some Spanish tile.  So in the meantime, here’s a roundup for a whole lot of front door #goals. Cheers, Kat

Earlier this month, I hopped in the car with my girls to see the great state of South Carolina, and it was hot.  I’m talking summer-in-the-South hot.  So let’s just say that I was thankful to be wearing an easy summer outfit like this one when we stopped at our first stop of the trip: the beautiful Falls Park on the Reedy in downtown Greenville. I donned a rendition of my go-to button down shirt, the coolest sunnies, an easy summer hat and my favorite cutoff shorts (sold out but available in this wash).  And as you can see, I had a little bit of fun in those hydrangeas.  I mean those colors!  How could you resist rushing up and picking them all?  Truly, MKR
