Favorite Recent Purchases | No. 2 - kaitlynhparker.com

Last month I started a new series about um, well… my favorite recent purchases! (Catch No. 1 of this series HERE.) This spring, I’d been thinking through outfits for my best friend’s wedding in Telluride as well as trying to refine my wardrobe. I’ve wanted to do a better job of only buying/keeping what I […]

Rather than creating some long-winded complicated new blog series that makes it hard for me to maintain, I’m going to keep this series nice & simple. Sort of like Fashion Jackson’s ‘Dailies’ blog posts – but more like monthly because #hobbyblogger. After spending a lotttt of time quarantining at home over the past couple of […]

Trusted Neutral Paint Colors for the Transitional Home - kaitlynhparker.com

Between painting just about the entire interior of the two homes we’ve owned so far, you could say I’ve spent a fair amount of time studying paint swatches and experiencing them on our walls first-hand. I’ve only ever used Benjamin Moore (BM) and Sherwin Williams (SW) and like them equally for the most part but […]

Here's What I Know About Mental Health - kaitlynhparker.com

I’ll start with this: Praise God, it’s no longer something I struggle with. Seriously, that’s not a passive or cliché statement. I’ll always give God the glory for helping me overcome depression, anxiety, and disordered eating. And I know firsthand, these are very real, very difficult, very crippling experiences for so many. And I certainly […]

Design Board: Dream Bedroom

I recently asked a question on my Story about what people’s favorite bedding was and got tons of responses! I think we’re all passionate about whatever helps to give us a good night’s sleep. I asked because we’ve had our bedroom set for a few years and it’s a) started creaking and b) we have […]

When my hair was blonder, I used to only wear silver jewelry. I thought gold jewelry didn’t look good on me, but over time I’ve come to looove it. And now that my hair is darker, I’ve been growing my collection of dainty gold pieces. (I’m still a fan of a little mixed metal action […]

Match Made in Wine Heaven: Bread & Butter - kaitlynhparker.com

With the quarantine in full swing, we’ve had our fair share of wine. We’re normally big Cab drinkers but lately have been enjoying Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a bit of Rosé (although the hubs isn’t the biggest fan of that one). There’s a few brands we’d consider go-tos but none like Bread & Butter Wines. […]

We’ve finally decided to begin our living room refresh project which I’m SO excited for. We bought an IKEA couch a few years ago that’s served its purpose but I was never crazy about it. It started with an unassuming trip to Pottery Barn, where we were told they were having a private sale. And […]

I feel like I’m breaking the writing silence for myself today and if I’m being honest, it’s a bit uncomfortable. In some ways, it feels like a slow retreat. I feel the welling in my eyes and a tightness in my chest as I hold back a few tears. It feels like returning to an […]

Luxe Under $100 Gifts for Her - kaitlynhparker.com

Gift buying can be difficult at times because I’m sure we all want to give our loved ones something that feels really nice and special. But it can be tough to do when a lot of those options are over $100 and our gift list seems never-ending. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite […]
