New Pottery Barn lights!

 Hi there! Hope you are having a great week! Soo progress! We managed to get these Pottery Barn lights hung up, and they are beautiful! I saw this chandelier back when we were living in the apartment and knew pretty quickly that it would be the one! I just love it when that happens...trying to make a decision on things around our house drives me nuts most of the time and then some things you see and its done! Soo I waited till it was on sale and snagged it at 20% off! What do you think? I am almost feeling a little howtie tootie about it but I think I'm gunna be ok.

We just love too how it lights up the evenings in here too. The dinning room looks awesome with the light going all through the beads. This is my first dinning room and so far I am thrilled with how it is turning out ! I am loving too how it makes quit the statement but is neutral too and can go with a lot of different styles.
I was having a hard time getting good pics but I hope you get the idea. This chandelier is a beast though to hang up! Our electrician had to get another guy to hold it for him..me..lol to get it up, so I would recommend you have help it is pretty darn heavy!
I still have a few things to do in here like get chairs and a rug. Rugs are so hard for me! Especially with kids and a lil dog I really don't want to spend too much ya know? So I am still looking for rugs in here and my living room. As for chairs I am thinking of going with navy blue wing back end chairs that make a little bit of a statement. I actually found some at Target online, so I might just go with those. As for the other chairs I have no idea. I keep looking through craigslist for something so maybe that will pay off here soon. Isn't craigs list great?

The other light that I purchased on sale there is this gorgeous star light! I am so excited to get going on my lil entry way makeover! I have BIG plans for it people! I have wanted this light in my entryway for quit a while acually since my last house, but had already put something up, so it got pushed back to never getting it done.

It looks beautiful also in the evenings really lighting up this part of this house! I also did just see this on Amazon or overstock so you might check their prices too if this is a light you want. I was thinking too that a couple of these would look beautiful on a back patio!

We have been so busy its nice to get some bigger things done! Now I gotta get goin on those kitchen lights! 

I was not paid or asked to do this post. Just sharing what I love

My poshmark closet

 Recently, well  back in November, I decided to open a account on Poshmark! Have you heard of it? It has been around for a few years. You can sell your used or new clothing and accessories. Its really is a great and easy way to make some quick money and clean out our closet! So that is what I did and sold a lot of clothing I no longer wanted. I was surprised at how fast it sold! But good, bright clean pictures definitely are the key.  And then I got a lil addicted maybe and thought I would try out selling some retail clothing! I am still learning my way around and trying to find great clothing to put in my closet, but I think I have finally gotten there! I am still building my closet, but I thought I would share some of my new items! I am not sure if I will do a post on every time I put new items in, but I am thinking about it...I have been generally adding a few new items once a month.

These new retail items as well as others are now in my closet under the name @lbrooketrout. If you do stop by let me know so I can check out your closet too!

Summer Express dressing room selfies

Hi there! A couple of days ago I popped on over to Express to look for an outfit for a special occasion that I had coming up, and of course I found way to many cute things going on in there!

The last couple of years I have really liked quiet a lot of the pieces that they have. I feel that a lot of them would stay in my closet for a long time too! These jeans are just ADORABLE! The material was soft and comfortable with a little stretch.. I could definitely live in these all summer! Which would probably explain why there were none in my size..I was totally faking this..lol too big..hopefully I can grab them online! This lil jacket would go with about 90% of my closet!

This is a beautiful maxi! Would be great for all your special occasions you have going on this summer!

LOOOVED this maxi skirt! But I should start off by saying that I live in maxi dresses and skirts in the summer! And this was a winner, great print!

I was not sure about this one but when I got it on I fell in looove! Really soft material and you could wear this everywhere all summer!

I'm not a palm tree girl, but this is a great dress! I love the colors and the shape of it. Longer on the sides and shorter in front and back.. definitely wanted to take this one home...would probably be a good idea anyways to have some palm trees in my closet right??..LOL

Such a cute lil classic shirt dress!This came in a few colors also on sale. Annnnd there is that jacket again! Goes with everythang!

 I liked this lil dress! I pared it with this great goes with just about anything black belt! It was a little short for me, but would be really cute for a date night or girls night out! #classic

         Another great maxi, this one was a little big for me, but you get the idea...

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
