Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Watch List, where I share the items that captured my attention and stole my heart over the past week!

My friend Shayna over at The Wood Grain Cottage killed it with this Fixer Upper Makeover. I love a good room makeover, but an entire house?! Wow. You will not even believe what the ‘befores’ look like compared to the current space. Such beautiful work and finishes selected. You can check out the reveal here and then find all of her sources in this post.
2 – The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts on Friday (for those of us non-cardholders), and I’ve already checked out the early access for cardholders. Since I was a teen (with a wad of babysitting cash) this was always my favorite sale each year (mostly for new school clothes). I love that it was a sale at the beginning of the season, versus a sale on the prior season’s clothes. I typically limit my purchases during this sale to two or three staples I can use for the entire upcoming season. Come Friday, I would like to add this Tory Burch Smartphone Wallet to my cart. I have a few others in this style, but as smartphones have gotten larger, my old Michael Kors and Coach ones don’t seem to quite fit my new phone. I love these wristlets that can hold all the essentials: credit cards, ID, cell phone and a tube of lip gloss. Perfect for dinner parties, work functions, etc. when I don’t want to lug my large purse around. I love that this also comes in camel and red. I’m also eyeing these jeans, these boots, this scalloped dress and this set of three necklaces so I need to get my list narrowed down!
3 – Do you struggle with pillows on your sectional or couch? This post on how to style a sectional had excellent tips and a variety of options on how to make throw pillows work out perfectly. I even feel like some of these tips can translate to a traditional couch. Not only do we have a sectional, but a leather one at that (it’s in the basement currently) and I always struggled with styling it. I also love the pillows used in these mock-ups, as I am a firm believe in using larger pillows – 18″x18″ is my absolute minimum and even then, I prefer 20″x20″ to 24″x24″ for all of my square pillows.
4 – I am in love with these huge Turkish towels (they come in wide variety of colors) that can be used as towels (obviously), but are lightweight enough to also be used as a picnic blanket, tablecloth or shawl/scarf!
5 – I am in love with this gorgeous and unique turquoise ring. It is one of those statement pieces that would look just as good in summer as it would into early fall! Adding this one to my birthday wishlist! I’m also thinking of this pom-fringe cardigan that is currently on killer sale now that it is an additional 20% off the sale price. I love when my birthday starts approaching 😉
