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

1 – As spring approaches each year, I find my mind wandering to our outdoor spaces. After our backyard renovation last year, I’ve turned my sites on our courtyard. This image from Feldman Architects is giving me all the feels. And makes me want to paint our house even more. I love what looks like slate tile flooring in this beautiful outdoor space. The full home tour is pretty spectacular as well.
2 – Block heel sandals are a huge trend this spring/summer. I saw these affordable raffia block heel sandals and ordered them as soon as I saw them. They arrived earlier this week and I’m obsessed. I think they look much more expensive than they are and lucky for you (not so lucky for me), all sandals are currently buy one, get one 50% off for the whole family. But if you need a suggestion for your 50% off item, check out these cute gingham heels.
3 – I’ve developed a serious vase obsession over the past few months and keep buying them. I found this stunner in the recent CB2 catalog (it tends to be pretty modern but their outdoor stuff is pretty good this year). To be honest, I tend to forget the store even exists but after my jute pouf and leather sewing chair purchases, I’ve found so many things I love! This vase is rather large (there’s a full room image on their site) and I love the combination of smooth white ceramic with the rough linen-like upper section. It wouldn’t have caught my eye at first-glance, but filled with a simple bougainvillea stem, it was so beautiful! I imagine the look could be recreated fairly easily with other blooms or greenery.
4 – I rarely buy dresses, but I have a few events this spring/early summer that will require one. I’m completely obsessed with this navy and white striped (and tasseled) dress! It’s a bit more than I’d typically spend, but I’m thinking I could get enough wear out of it this year to justify it. Plus I love the fit and flare shape since it tends to help hide the hips and booty. I’m loving this striped dress as well.
5 – I ordered these striped Sunbrella outdoor pillows about a month ago but they were back-ordered. I got them yesterday and I think they are going to be perfect out by the pool this year! I’m pairing them with these larger 24″ navy blue pillows (the blue is a bit lighter than the stripes but I think it will work okay). You can currently get 20% off all outdoor with code SUNFUN.
