Happy Weekend, Friends!

This will be my last blog post for a couple of weeks, so I just wanted to stop in and say ‘see you soon’! I get to watch one of my best friends marry the man of her dreams, next week! I hope you are enjoying the summer sun, wherever you are!

Splurge vs. Steal: Parsons Table

Splurge | Restoration Hardware$2475 USD


Steal | Structube $749 CAD

I am in love with these Parsons tables. They make for such a classic piece of furniture, but are modern at the same time. If you cannot make up your mind about a dining room table, go with a Parsons. Particularly, these Parsons. I love the colour of the wood. Not too dark, not too light, and not too grey. Either way, a good, strong, wood table can ALWAYS be sanded and re-stained if the colour doesn’t suit you somewhere down the road.

Hi everyone! You may notice that I’m a little behind on posting this week. Things are really picking up around here! I am taking on a new role at work, organizing a bachelorette this weekend AND I’m in a wedding next week! So much exciting stuff going on. But that means I’m slacking in the blogging department (boo). This is why I have decided to take the next TWO weeks off blogging. Yep, I said it. I’m going to take a break. While I will finish up my posts for this week, and might post a thing or two within the next couple weeks, I just can’t commit to consistent and creative posts during this busy time. You CAN expect some pretty serious Instagramming on my part for the next little while though. So, if you’re not following along already, my user name is stylish_savings, or you can keep an eye on my Instagram posts on the right hand side of your screen –>
