I cannot wait to show you a makeover I just finished of the sitting room in my bedroom.

It all started with a mirror and ended with blue and white and yellow.

Don’t you love a makeover story that starts like that?

See I’ve challenged myself to take pictures of my outfits every day. In an effort to use more of what I have and to maximize my closet, I’m trying out a new app that helps you put outfits together. It’s called Smart Closet and you upload what’s in your closet and it organizes it for you.

But to do that?

You need pictures.

And to take pictures?

You need a mirror.

A really big oversized mirror that allows you to get the entire outfit in the frame. And in amazing news? I found this one. It’s 27″ wide by 70″ long and it’s so pretty and the PERFECT size for outfit taking.

And just when I loaded the mirror in the cart and was about to head home?

I turned around and saw THIS.


Now you if you’ve met me for more than a hot minute, you know how much I LOVE BLUE AND WHITE.

From the top of my head to the bottom of my toes.

Which are currently standing on this blue and white bit of amazingness.

The blue and white rug which matches perfectly with this floral pillow.

I already showed y’all this pillow at the beach house.

But I LOVE IT SO MUCH that I had to get another one for home.

The floral pillow which matches perfectly with these yellow striped pillows that I found.

And the best part?

They are reversible.

The other side is yellow and white stripe.

And they are under $13.

I almost never use yellow in decorating, but they were so cute I couldn’t help it.

And the yellow was so cute I found this square pouf for the corner of the room and these yellow pillows for the bed.

They look so high end and each of the four corners has a tassel.

You can see the pillows here.

I also found these gray and white baskets to organize the bookshelves in the sitting area around the television.

They are the perfect size for holding books and papers and other supplies.

And they help keep the bookshelf looking neat.

And just I was headed out the door?

I found the CUTEST little white planters.

They have a hole at the bottom for drainage and they are curved inside so you can fit even more plant in.

You can see them here.

And now?

I brought it all home and put it all together.

Want to see what blue and white and yellow all look like together?

And the selfie mirror?

Remember? The one that started it all?


Even better than I expected.

Want to see?

Here’s a selfie of the room.

And here’s a selfie of a person who is very excited.

Excited about the mirror.

Excited about the new blue and white rug.

Excited about a new look for the bedroom.

But most of all?

Excited about all the outfits that are to come. 🙂

    Love the summer color scheme for your room. The change just feels like happiness. The pillow reminds me of zinnias and their beautiful colors.

    Love the floral pillow. Is the big flower blue or teal? Your photos it appears blue and on the Walmart website it appears teal.

    Oh my god, I’ve been looking for pillows in these colors and today I get your email post! I’m ordering them as soon as I finish this! Thank you for linking them because I didn’t know where to look! They’re beautiful, and so is your guest bedroom!

    Oh KariAnne, I love it all but my fav is the flowered pillow. I have to tell you that I too shop just like you. I go in to find one thing and before I get to the check out counter something calls to me, "Cher, come over here!". And then as soon as I get close to it, it jumps into my cart. This happens more that once sometime and I may not even find the item I went in for. It's tragic but I've learned to live with it. Love & Blessings

    I was looking at that rug thinking, hmmm I might like that for my bedroom or my screened-in side porch and then I realized OMG! I BOUGHT THAT RUG IN THE SPRING AND KIND OF FORGOT ABOUT IT! I love yellow (occasionally) so I'm going to hustle out to Walmart and get me some yellow pillows. I go there every day anyway. I'm a couple of pillows away from a bedroom makeover. Oh happy day!

    So so happy for you getting to celebrate the “new you”! You look fabulous and I know you must feel great too! I once heard you should have a little yellow in every room because it brings happiness!

    Love the blue and white! But the yellow, not so much! You have a beautiful home, but your bedroom is on my wish list. Are you ever going to tell us where you bought the blue and white jumpsuit?
