I say this every month, but where has August gone?! The kiddos are back to school (which seems too early in my opinion!) and we’re trying to get into the swing of a routine. Getting up early seems to be the biggest struggle after those lazy summer mornings. I’m not big on sleeping in, but I just prefer a leisurely morning. On a more upbeat note, the temps are finally cooling down and it feels so good. My August 2018 Home & Fashion Favorites are still summery for the most part, but I know we still have some warm months left yet. Hope you find something you like! Let’s dive in!

August 2018 Home and Fashion Favorites
1. Coffee Table Book
Wouldn’t this be gorgeous on a coffee table at a beach house?!! I’d just love to be able to have a coffee table book stay on the coffee table at this point! Someday, when my kiddos get older, this beauty will grace my coffee table….preferably at my house on the beach 🙂 .
2. Perfect White Tee
I have tried A LOT of white tees, but I always come back to this one that I got several years ago. It is super soft, it’s tagless, stretchy, not at all see through, and washes great. Most of my tees have holes in them and since this is not 100% cotton, it has held up so much better. I’m declaring it my favorite!
3. Portrait Necklaces
I know it may seem WAAAAY too early to be thinking of Christmas, but this would make a fantastic gift for a Mom or Grandma in your life (hint, hint…). I’ve been eyeing it for over a year. This is from an Etsy seller who also has bracelets, prints, and more. SO CUTE!
4. KitchenAid Mixing Bowls
My KitchenAid mixer is one of the few items I would take with me if we had to leave our home in a hurry. Mine even has a name and she (yes, she’s a girl) would LOVE one of these adorable textured or printed bowls. Having an extra bowl would be super useful come the holidays with all the baking (see how I justified an extra bowl?!).
5. Statement Earrings
The “child of the 80s” in me LOVES a big earring like this. These are from another Etsy seller and she has tons of 80s style earrings that you’ll love. This particular pair is a bit more neutral, but she’s got some fun neon too. You should definitely out the seller’s Etsy site (Etsy is probably my hands down favorite place for unique, quality jewelry at great prices with EXCELLENT customer service.)
6. Wave Print
This is a digital download from an Etsy seller and I just love the simplicity and the movement. There are a few more wave images that this seller offers so you could have these printed and set up a gallery wall/collage. I’m feeling inspired already!
Let’s just call this “Stephanie’s channeling the 80s month.” But come on, how cute is this anorak?! I’m super excited that they are coming back in fashion especially because they are such a practical way to add a not-too-hot layer. This baby blue is calling my name (have you noticed I like blue? Ha Ha!).
8. Mini Backpack
Last, but not least is this mini backpack. I swapped out my purse for a mini backpack this summer and although my backpack isn’t holding up super great, this all leather one is made to last. I may need to upgrade as I’ve gotten spoiled by “hands free” this summer. Backpacks are especially great with kiddos because you have both hands free….amen to that!
That wraps up August’s favorite fashion and home finds. Hope you found something you like!
