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 – The ceiling in this dining nook alone was worth me sharing this home tour. Isn’t it stunning?! I think most people would just paint it white, but I love that they left it natural and did the contrasting trim. It makes such a beautiful statement! Lots of other pretty details from Bailey Ward Interiors in this home as well.
2 – I’m hard at work on this year’s resort wear post, but in the meantime, I’m slowly trickling out some of the content because the good stuff tends to sell out quickly! I’ve been a long time fan of Boden’s swimwear, and have always had great luck with it. I’m a firm believer in investing in quality swimwear, as I find it’s more flattering on me (particularly the material) and I get a lot of use out of it. For my longer-torso gals, you can check out my post on long torso swimwear from last year for other ideas on where I like to shop! You can also see more in Boden’s Vacation Shop. All of their new arrivals (which most of the below are) are 15% off!

3 – As mentioned above, I’ve been scouring resort wear collections for an upcoming post (and personal travel) and love these raffia slide sandals I found for only $20! They remind me so much of this pair that rings in at $198. I also found a great mid-price option, as well! Clearly this style will be trending this spring when I found them so quickly on three different sites!
4 – I’m also working on a post for the best spring faux florals. And in the name of “science” I ordered a bunch to test out to share! This faux baby’s breath is my favorite find so far for a great late winter, early spring staple! The bunch is rather large (this is only one set) and looks much more lifelike than a few others I’ve tested and the price is hard to beat. As with most Amazon faux florals, it arrives with the stems bent in half and the flowers rather matted, but it only takes a minute or so to bend them into a natural shape again so don’t let that deter you!
5 – Now that we’re in our new house, we really want to get back to entertaining more, and I’m happy to report we’ve been pretty great about trying so far! I’ve already accumulated some great basics over the last decade or so but I’m excited to expand my tablescape skills further. I’m loving this floral tablescape that is muted enough to work for winter but would also work equally as well in spring or summer with a few simple swaps! All sources are listed below the graphic.
