Good morning, friends! And TGIF!! I hope you all are enjoying this chilly weather the best you can and fitting in some fun plans for the weekend. Now that I finally have my work week back to normal, I’ve been feeling super productive. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll probably notice that I gave Original Caroline a little face-lift! The start of the new year really has me feeling motivated and inspired, so I thought I’d step up the look of my blog. Do you like? I hope you have a lovely weekend, and enjoy this week’s Friday Favorites! xo
Favorite Space: This loft tour is a perfect example for why I want so badly to live in Austin! Chanel Dror, one of the badass women behind the Camille Styles blog, turned what was once a Texas State Department of Health building, into a perfectly curated loft space filled with warm pops of color, vintage finds, modern art, and loads of houseplants. Be sure to check out the rest of her loft lovely space! Like, seriously!
Favorite Decor: Pottery Barn launched a new brand of products on January 11 specifically made for all your small-space woes. So after looking at all of the brand’s newest items, there were definitely some favorites. But the one that I really had a liking for was the Customizable Brackets & Shelves ($39 – 79). You literally have 75 options — three shelf lengths in multiple finishes, from contemporary to vintage — to makes these shelves fit your personal decor style!
Favorite Accessory: According to Pinterest’s trend report, “larger than life” earrings are one of the trends to look out for in 2018. So I found these Beatriz Hoop Earrings ($48) from Anthropologie and I love them! They’re the perfect understated statement earring (if that makes sense).
Favorite Cold-Weather Essential: I think the thing I love most about the Winter season is buying myself cute sweaters. And the On A Boat Sweater ($168) from Free People is one of the newest items added to my wishlist!
