LUSTFUL FRIDAYS #9

lustfulfridays

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! It's our chance to greet the weekend with a smile and take advantage of the (hopefully) long weekend with our friends and family! To anyone not US based I'm talking about Labor Day, Monday's holiday, which gives all of us Americans a day off to honor our hard work for the rest of the year. It started to try and break up a railroad strike over a hundred years ago, but I'm glad it's a national holiday that has stuck. It's also the holiday that signals the coming of Fall. In the past it meant no more wearing white, but that rule f**king sucks. Winter white is my f**king favorite. Anyways, let's check out some of my lusts for this week!

APPLECRISP

We have been doing our 30 days of fitness for virtually all of the month of August and I am starving. I cannot wait to get to September 4th and make myself some apple crisp full of brown sugar and butter. GET IN MY BELLY! And then also continue our health streak by keeping up with workouts and making better decisions about eating. I am just definitely having a beer and some apple crisp first :)

barcart

Speaking of alcohol, I am in love with all the cool bar carts I have been seeing on Pinterest lately. Once we get our whole living room situation figured out (i.e. picking out a couch), I am definitely making one of these guys. I feel like we will be hosting a lot of football related get-togethers so having a stocked bar wouldn't be a bad idea!

officesupplies

My office/closet/guest bedroom is coming along nicely. I have two days to finish getting it set up before it is the end of August so we are in the trenches right now! Pushing through to success! Since I am getting rid of my desk with drawers and instead putting a table with a bookcase I want to invest in some cute storage pieces to make my office more boutique-y. I love the ones in this photo as inspiration. Look for a picture of the office all set up and ready to roll next week!

lovethislook

I hate the idea of giving up white and florals for Fall. Therefore, I am just not doing it. This is some outfit inspo that I will be putting to good use next week. I love finding good idea on Pinterest and making them my own. You can follow my Pinterest here, if you want some inspo of your own.

tanshoes

The last thing in the world I need is a new pair of shoes, but these are just too beautiful to not want!!!! Why do I love straps and laces so much? No idea! But I'll keep these here to remind me when I do need shoes for something that these babies are it!!!

Alright y'all, what do you thinks of my lusts for the week? Are you wanting anything right now that is amazing? Have a great weekend!

Much Love,

Lindsey

LUSTFUL FRIDAYS #8

lustfulfridays

Helllllooooo everyone and happy Lustful Friday! Here we are again, discussing my favorite things I found and am totally in need of for this week! I love watching the evolution of these posts and how I eventually bite the bullet and actually go out into the real world and get the things that I've lusted over. Just this past week I finally got my first pair of designer shoes, some rockstuds that made their initial appearance in Lustful Fridays #2. You can also see them in action for the first time in Our Trip to Seattle Day #2. I won't say they'll be my last splurge, but I much rather enjoy searching for a bargain. With that in mind, let's move into my lusts from this week! bright skirt

I love the geometric cut of this skort. I still think this will be really fun this fall in a dark olive color or black. I am very into structure in my style. I like some boho, flowy things, but I just think the structured pieces are much more flattering on a wider variety of people. I am happy to see this style stick around!

olaferoz

Another style favorite is the high neck. I cannot stress enough how flattering I believe this neckline to be on essentially everyone. It shows off shoulders and minimizes concentration on the bust. Therefore, keeping it classy, while still showing some skin. Now, this bikini by Ola Feroz, is a little bit of an exception to the classiness because there are some serious cutouts. However, I love them. And this color!!! I am an olive toned girl who loves to wear olive toned clothing. The highneck in multiple variations will definitely be showing up in my swim for this next season.

officetable

I am seriously getting down to business with my Goal for August! Since my closet will also continue to double as my office space, I want it to be a very chic little area. It will be where I find my zen, creativity and happiness. So, I need to make it cute, right? I have already ordered a white drafting table for myself so I can ditch my old clunky desk. And I also got a new white bookcase since I'm losing the drawer space with a table. Danny is very concerned about the loss of drawers, but he just doesn't get my vision yet! It will come in time. We'll get him on our side soon enough! I also want to freshen up this space with some new white paint on my floorboards and in the actual closet, and I also got a new door with gold hardware to brighten up the place a bit. I am very excited to see this space come to life!

mara chair

Anyone who knows me, has heard about my near obsession with Mara Hoffman. So it's obvious my closet/office would not be complete without this Mara Hoffman for Anthropologie chair in a corner lounge area. This little diddy would set me back a pretty penny though and considering I want to take September to re-do our kitchen, this chair will have to be my inspiration piece. Or to me, better known as the "If I Win the Lottery Piece".

trenchcoat

Finally, I am starting to see the change of seasons in fashion. I definitely don't see it when I walk outside my door in Florida because it so freakin' hot I could die, but I am still starting to get that Fall itch. For anyone not in the know, the Fall itch is what girls start to feel around August that includes yearnings for Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes, wearing a scarf, and figuring out how to make boots work with any outfit. In Florida, we usually see our first chilly day in January so I have a while to get my Fall wardrobe together, which is probably why I always put off buying a trench coat. I am obsessed with the look and have been wanting one for years, but just never pulled the trigger. Danny always make fun of me because I want the "Mercedes" of everything. Like when we bought a vacuum, I wanted a Dyson. Or when we went couch hunting, I started at Pottery Barn. The trench is no different because I am holding out for a Burberry. Perhaps it will be my next little splurge!

 

Alright y'all. See you soon! Much Love,

Lindsey

LUSTFUL FRIDAYS #7

Welcome to another installment of shit I want by Lindsey Bell. It's hard not to want new things every week so I feel if I express my wants I will either grow to love it so much that I just have to buy it, or I'll be over it and have moved on to new things by next Friday. There really is no tellin' with me. So, without further ado, some stuff.  

Walk in closet Inredning

I am in closet reorganization mode. Creating my dream closet is my goal for August. I set it pretty lofty, and this is before we booked our trip to Seattle for VloggerFair, where I will be losing a whole weekend of organizing time. That's going to make it a little harder, but no less do-able. I have my heart set on either making or buying a vanity rolling rack. I want to put together cute outfits for the week or just display amazing things that match my decor. Basically doing what I love to do at work, but in my own house.

cutestfrenchieever

This little guy kills me. I took one look at him and almost went puppy adopting immediately. I think he is photoshopped he's so perfect. Uhhhh.... why do dogs have to be so damn adorable. I want them all.

madisondress

We are attending a wedding in Boston in September and I am starting to get nervous about finding a dress in time. I love the style of this one, but DO NOT want to be wearing white to a wedding, even if there is a black print on it. I just love long sleeves and structure in dresses.

navybluekeepsakedress

This is my backup dress. It's navy, not too sexy and still has the fun little slit. It might be the one :)

 

Alright y'all, until next week, Much Love,

Lindsey

LUSTFUL FRIDAYS #6

Time to buckle down and post about some shit I want!!!! I've missed you blog world. Can't wait to get some more posts up! Now, on to what I'm lusting after for this week! MERMAID PANTS

Mermaid pants! I think these are Nightcap Clothing lace pants, but I haven't been able to find the exact source of the picture. I still want them though. Especially in this color <3

MARA HOFFMAN BATHING SUIT

This suit is a new one from Mara Hoffman for Resort '15. I am obsessed. I 100% will be buying this for myself. I love the high-neck style for swim, and really any other piece of clothing that I wear. I have heard a lot of people worried about the tanlines, but the truth is that I don't really tan much anymore. I put on SPF 9 million and just spray tan. So, tanline issues be damned!

MERMAID SHOWER

Mermaid bathroom. We have the saddest bathroom ever. I am slowly putting together the plans (and money) to completely renovate the room. I love this and will have to figure out how to make it happen in my own bathroom.

PINEAPPLE KNOCKER

Like mermaids, I am pretty pineapple obsessed. Give me all the pineapple things!!!

RED LIP

One new thing that I definitely want for fall is a good red lipstick. I am so nervous to wear any because I usually just wear chapstick, but I think it would be super fun to rock a red lip and vintage outfit and be all pin-up-ie for a night.

PINK HAIR

And last, but not least, I am so close to having pink hair. Once we hit 200k subscribers on our YouTube channel, I'll be taking the leap into pink! We are currently under 5k away and I am getting so so very excited! GIVE ME PINK HAIR OR GIVE ME DEATH!!!!

 

Much Love,

Lindsey

Lustful Fridays #5

lustfulfridays

Hooray for the illustrious return of Lindsey's Lustful Fridays! I love being on tour because it has given me down time to do things like this. Down time which I definitely haven't had available at home recently. I love it. hotcakesamericuh

Swim Amara American Flag Hotcakes With all of the hoopla surrounding the World Cup, I feel like I have been even more patriotic than normal. I'm obsessed with American flag printed things, but am still in need of some awesome, super American swim pieces. I came across these in my search for swim for Shore and decided at $45 I have to have them. Wish I would have gotten them in time for today, but I'm sure I will use them for years to come!

whitelulus neutraldress

Neutral Rompers and Dresses for Miami Swim Show Miami Swim Show is now less than a month away and it's time to start planning outfits! I'll probably stick to my standard of rompers and little dresses, but want to definitely get a lot of neutral colors in my wardrobe. It's my favorite to find great neutral outfits that I can dress up with accessories, but also reflects the style of Miami. Bringing out my inner beach goddess.

jessicasimpsonwedge neutralwedge

I'm always on the hunt for some great, moderately priced footwear. These are some of my current faves. Since Danny will be out of town for the next couple of months I'm thinking that rocking a super tall wedge is totally ok. Bring on the ridiculous heels!

showbag

The one thing I've realized while traveling these last few weeks is that I am in need of a large structured purse. I tend to buy slouchy bags, but once I start carrying a lot it doesn't stay organized and is really hard to carry. Time to get some structure in my life and move on to a big girl bag. Definitely still on the hunt for the perfect one.

stregisborabora

St. Regis Bora Bora

Finally Danny and I are starting to plan our big Fall vacation, and this is on the top of my list. I have to check out the wifi to make sure we can still upload our daily vlogs, but that's really our only stipulation when it comes to where we stay. I feel like every time I see the curaçao water and palm trees that's just where I want to be. I don't know if I'll ever be a ski trip vacationer. Always the beach girl at heart.

Catch ya next time.

Much love, Lindsey

Lustful #4

It has been a crazy week here in the Bell-Duncan household. Danny leaves for tour in less than a week and the craziness is starting to set in. So, my Lustful Fridays is turning into a one-time Lustful Sunday :) There's a definitely a new couple of things on the list though! subway tile kitchen chalkboard kitchen

Since we painted our chalkboard wall, our house is looking much darker than usual. There isn't a lot of natural light that makes it's way in because of small additions that were made to the house to add storage, but in turn took away windows. This added with the dark green color our cabinets are painted in our kitchen (yuck), we've got a real problem on our hands. My summer project is to repaint and get new hardware for all of our kitchen cabinets. And also tackle taking all the rest of the wallpaper out of our house. (The map in the kitchen included.) It's a job, but I see how beautiful it looks when the cabinets are bright and just want that so badly.

 

stone cold fox

If you all have learned anything about me in the short time we have known each other, I hope it's that I am always looking for the perfect romper. I love rompers. The ease of a dress without the hassle of accidentally flashing your panties. It's a win win. And this one, by Stone Cold Fox, is perfect. I love this brand. It flowy and easy. Very boho, but still sexy. I'm not a huge hydrangeas fan... I'm more of an orchid girl, but this print is the right amount girly and fun. In fact, I'll go ahead and take this romper in the solid colors too!

 

merfin

I finally found my mermaid fin! I need this so much.

 

mara hoffman

 

Mara Hoffman can do no wrong and this dress is just further proof. I buy a lot of her pieces that we get in at Shore. This is one, unfortunately, didn't make it to our store and I'm a little butthurt about it :(

 

long lost jewelry shark tooth

I am not a big jewelry wearer. I love a ton of bracelets, but usually shy away from rings, necklaces and earrings. I'm just a simple girl I guess. But this necklace pretty much changes my mind. I love how summery this is and it's pretty much a mermaid necklace for sure!

There's always more things to want, but more than anything I want to put some time into this, and really start developing more videos on my channel while Danny is gone. We will be vlogging all the way through these summer tours, but I figure a little double dose of Linds some days won't hurt! Talk to you all soon!

Much Love,

Lindsey
