The Love List : Natalie Merrillyn

Welcome to the second issue of The Love List!  
This weeks special guest is the beautiful Natalie from Natalie Merrillyn.  

Natalie's blog is one of the first I started following when I began blogging and to say that she has impeccable style would be an understatement.  {Remember when I blogged about her wedding here?}  Now Natalie is living on the East Coast with her husband and they are currently fixing up their first place together.  And from what I've seen so far, the house is going to be gorgeous!

Here are Natalie's favorites:

1. Chevron- Whether it's in curtains or dresses, I'm obsessed with this print!

2. Whole Foods' Bacon Chocolate Bar- Sounds weird, but it's the perfect combo of salty and sweet. I'm constantly adding one (or a few) to our grocery cart!

3. Organization- Baskets and bins make me so happy. Please tell me I'm not the only one!

4. Gold Sperrys- I just got a pair of these and they are amazing. I was nervous about the gold, but they're more of a neutral metallic and I wear them everywhere. So perfect for Spring.

5. Ombre Hair- To try or not to try? I go back and forth about this bold trend.

6. Thrifting- How am I just now discovering the wonders of thrifting? I've found the best things at thrift stores-- vintage trays, milk glass, vases, old books. A new favorite, frugal hobby of mine.

Thank you, Nuha, for having me!


Told you she was stylish! Don't forget to stop by her blog and say hello!

{ and to answer your question Natalie, I LOVE baskets & bins too!}
