Peaceful neutrals for fall are definitely trending this year and with good reason. Most of us want our homes to feel like a sanctuary and a safe haven right now, a place that welcomes you to sit down and relax without a lot of fuss.
I’m really loving these woodsy farmhouse feel home finds. The candles that look like birch logs…the wise owl….rustic wood arrows and beaded chandelier….that gorgeous fireplace……all combined with fall accents of acorns, pumpkins, and a beautiful wreath. I also love that hint of sage green added to the mix.
I’ve become a huge fan of online shopping this year because we have a family member at-risk for more serious complications of covid so we minimize his risk. Home ordering and delivery is really a convenience I’m thankful for right now.

Getting comfortable and organized in your home office involves plenty of storage, ample work surfaces, comfortable sitting areas, a great desk, good task lighting, and of course a good cup of coffee! If you really want to treat yourself, add a candle reminiscent of Mama’s biscuits. Now that’s a relaxed home office space!

Wow, it’s been a beautiful September here with lots of sunshine an beautiful cool evenings. I love this time of year when the air is a little crisper and the fresh fall produce starts to roll in. Today, my comfy home finds are inspired by the colors of a September evening sunset.
It’s Labor Day Weekend in the United States! For this week’s edition of Seriously Comfy Sunday, I’m focusing on iconic American brands that epitomize the nation’s spirit.
First, Tommy Hilfiger. Hilfiger has everything you want in an American brand. Classic? Yep. The style is undoubtedly timeless. Trendy? Yep. Recently, the younger generation has also discovered Tommy and has taken to donning sportswear emblazoned with the famous logo. And the brand features red, white, and blue. What could be better for a great American holiday weekend? I also appreciate the Tommy Hilfiger brand because the company produces an extensive line of adaptive clothing which is tremendously helpful to my son who has a developmental disability. He was thrilled to wear his first pair of jeans EVER that are well-fitting and have fasteners that are manageable for him. The Tommy jeans were a big win for our family. I love to support a great American company that helps other people too.
Staying home more doesn’t have to be routine, even though it is the new normal for many of us. Make your home your comfortable haven, full of what brings you joy! And America, let’s celebrate what brings us together this weekend and above all be kind and loving toward others!
I do miss my old routine. I really, really do. For as long as I can remember, Sundays involved morning church followed by a meal with the extended family either at a restaurant or at home. Post-pandemic, Sundays consist of an on-line church service followed by more……you guessed it…….staying home.
I’m trying to embrace the good that comes with all of this at-home time, and I’m beginning to appreciate one of the perks that comes with being at home so much: comfy clothing!
Up until last March, my daily uniform involved dress pants, blouses, and pumps. And I didn’t mind it. I loved it. But I gotta say, I never had enough appreciation for just wearing comfy clothes. These days, if it does’t feel really good on, I’m just not going to wear it. In short, the pandemic has led me to peruse more of the cozy end of apparel lines more than I have in all the rest of my years.
This week I share some more of my cozy at home picks.
First, I’m highlighting some Splendid lounge pants. I have a pair of these, and they are, well, splendid :). Just a great pair of effortless, soft pants that look great on too.
Next, the classic chambray shirt from J Crew. I find myself reaching for J Crew apparel time and time again, because the brand is just consistently classic, well-made, and you will be getting a great value for your money. This chambray shirt goes with everything and acts as a second layer when the weather turns chilly.
The adorable hat by Jeff and Aimy is packable and lightweight, so you’ll be comfortable and shaded during your outdoor activities.
For comfy feet, try these colorblock sandals from Ecco. My feet are very picky when it comes to what’s comfortable, but Ecco shoes always make them happy.
This cute graphic tee, available on Amazon, is a comfy, casual option that reminds us to stay optimistic and compassionate.
Sunday! My favorite day of the week! We all need a sabbath rest, and Sunday is the perfect day to get cozy and lounge a bit. Since the pandemic hit, my Sunday routine includes an online worship service followed by a quiet brunch at home with my family, often a quiche and a fresh salad. Beyond that, recharging for the week is the order of the day.
In our Seriously Comfy Sunday series, I share my favorite relaxed attitude ideas to make the most of your Sunday.
Read to the bottom for our favorite Sunday Quiche Recipe! Enjoy!
Complete the perfect comfy outfit with a pair of effortless slides like these little beauties from Tom’s. Fun, stylish, and no sore feet.
What would a Summer day be without a chilled beverage? We have been buying Taits Raspberry Shrub locally for years. This tangy mixer makes a perfect lazy day drink. Just put some ice in a glass and stir in 8 ounces of ginger ale and 1.5 ounces of shrub, and you’re done!
No make-up is definitely the way to go on a chill day, but this Rose Salve Lip Balm keeps your lips moistured and pampered with no effort at all.
Finally, this beautiful double lazy days hammock will be the perfect spot to let your mind and body rejuvenate and recharge.
Until next Sunday enjoy your Sabbath rest!
