I know what you’re thinking. It’s FASHION FRIDAY!

Why, yes. It’s ALWAYS fashion Friday. However, I wanted to switch it up a bit on this fantastic fall Friday.

F O O D I E  F R I D A Y : Breakfast Edition

If I asked you to explain fall in one word, what would you say? The first thing that comes to my mind is PUMPKIN. PSL (pumpkin spice latte… I feel cool I know the lingo), Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Patch, and our favorite Pumpkins (our loved ones). I stumbled upon this fab PUMPKIN CREAM CHEESE FRENCH TOAST. Are ya stinkin’ kidding me!? I just had to share it with y’all. Anyone that knows me knows I love me some breakfast. Gotta fuel that body of mine after an intense morning CrossFit workout. Usually, I keep it pretty healthy: eggs, Ekekiel Bread (toasted) and a slice of bacon or two (very Paleo! y’all). One thing I’ve learned. You have to treat yourself. By golly, will I be treating myself to this recipe to celebrate the fall season.

BAKED PUMPKIN CREAM CHEESE FRENCH TOAST
Here’s how to make it:

Prep Time2 hours, 15 minutes Cook Time45 minutes Total Time3 hours Yield8 servings

The easiest french toast ever with the most amazing cream cheese filling. Prep the night before and bake right before serving. Easy easy!

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUMB TOPPING
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
    • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
    • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FILLING
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, sugar and cinnamon on medium speed until light and fluffy, approximately 2-3 minutes; set aside.
  • In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla.
  • Lightly coat an 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Place a layer of bread cubes evenly into the baking dish. Pour half of the pumpkin puree mixture evenly over the top. Spread cream cheese filling in an even layer. Top with remaining bread cubes and pumpkin puree mixture to completely cover the filling.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • To make the crumb topping, combine flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add cold butter and toss to coat, using your fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the bread cubes.
  • Place into oven and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately, sprinkled with pecans and confectioners’ sugar, if desired.

Y’all have to try this and let me know how it goes! Eat up, my friends!

2014 MY STYLED ROOM CONTEST

Filed Under: Decor 2 Ur Door by Robin at 10:26 am

We have been getting hundreds of “My Styled Room” Contest pictures and entries. Y’all. You’re so creative! Who wants a job?! But really… you have to finish college first. (And I wouldn’t rush it, boy do I miss it).

Here’s one of the TOP CONTENDERS as we speak. How adorable!?

Custom Dorm Bedding

I mean… I don’t even know where to start here. Carla and her roommate created this STINKIN’ AMAZE coordinationg dorm room via our Design Ur Own Section. Decor 2 Ur Door is unique in that it gives its customers a chance to have complete control over their custom dorm room. They started with the color palette of hot pink, teal/aqua, and grey. What a unique color combo. I think that’s what makes the room so spectacular. Also, we always love matching. Duh. I guess its the designer in us. Here’s the breakdown of what they designed:

Design Your Own Dorm Headboard: Pink 018Design Ur Own Dorm Headboard

Design Ur Own Euro Pillow: Pink 025 // Pink 034

(this was a suggestion on behalf of D2D designers)

Design Ur Own Lumbar: Pink 005

ADD A SOLID STOCK DUVET/INSERT:

Dorm Room Solid Duvet

Dorm Room Duvet Insert

These solid stock duvet covers T/TXL are the best of the best. They don’t break your bank, but are super comfy and extremely easy to wash. Perfect for college dorm room bedding. I have to say, I’ve had these since I went to college and I haven’t turned back since (available in all sizes). Don’t forget to add the duvet insert. They fit perfectly inside the duvet. I’ve had inserts that are too small (UGH!). I end up waking up to a ‘sheet’ and a massive lump at the end of the bed. Not with these, my friends. They are lightweight, hypo-allergenic, alternative down and fit snug as a little bug in a rug.

Design Ur Own Bed Scarf: Blue 059

Design Ur Own Bed ScarfThe idea of a bed scarf came about by our genius and talented owner, Robin (I’m a teachers pet). She wanted to bring a pop of color to the end of the bed. This is especially useful with a solid duvet. A bed scarf comes with an invisible zipper and a batting insert that is removable for easy laundering. The scarf is a decorative piece that truly pulls the room together. The batting insert gives it a little “plump” so it sits up on the bed, rather than a flat blanket. These things are out of this world adorable. If you have a bed scarf, everyone will know you ordered from Decor 2 Ur Door (aka you are COOL and have the best taste and cutest dorm room out there, and so on).

Design Ur Own Bed Skirt: Grey 001

Design Ur Own Dorm Bed Skirt

Yet another item that sets us apart: The Dorm Bed Skirt! Our dorm bed skirts come in a 32″ drop. That’s PLENTY of room to have a mini-closet (love my fashionistas), dresser, or study nook under your bed AND HIDE IT ALL! Bed skirts are for 2 sides of the bed. One panel at the foot of the bed, and 2 on the long end of the bed (not against the wall) that meet in the middle for easy access to your storage. Bed skirts come with twist in pins for easy application and also have a rod pocket if you prefer to suspend your skirts from a tension rod. As you can see, we like to offer our customers MANY options so that our products will work well for all dorm rooms.

Design Ur Own Chair Cover with Monogram: Blue 059

Design Ur Own Chair Cover

Each girl ordered her own chair cover and monogrammed it. Both are not shown in above pic. This is the perfect way to tie in your drabby dorm desk to your adorable Decor 2 Ur Door custom dorm bedding.

There ya have it. Now, you can see why this is a top contender. They really made this room their own. Great job girls! You’re in the running! Stay tuned for the winner!

If you missed it before: You have until November to submit your room!

Dorm Room Contest

Good luck lovely ladies!

OOTD: Game Day Ready, MLB Edition via Fanatics!

Filed Under: OOTD by Robin at 1:41 pm

Challenge accepted, Fanatics!

Our Game Day Outfit blog was inspired by the leading sports attire (and more) company, Fanatics. We created a “game day ready” inspiration board for their oh so classic, oh so (gotta have it) MLB hats. Y’all know me and my #OOTD obsessions, so I couldn’t turn this one down. I picked my favorite MLB hat, and went to work!

game day outfit

1. Start with the BASICS. Just like in interior design, you start with one item (like a gorgeous duvet by Decor 2 Ur Door) and you mix and match to make it your own. You add coordinating pillows and decor. Same thing here. I began with the outfit basic: MLB Hat via Fanatics! Fanatics has literally every sports team under the sun. Whether you’re looking for a hat, a t-shirt, dress, sports decor, or even a money clip with your favorite team logo… they have it all! Of douse, I’ve bought from them time after time (the joys of having a sports-loving boyfriend, and dad). Why the Braves you may ask? Well, first off… color scheme screams AMERICA, and I love the U S of A. Second, I’m a big braves fan. I was born in Atlanta (aka HOTlanta) so they’re my hometown team. I swear since I was a wee-little-baby I was in love with Chipper Jones. Finally, the Braves do the (Seminole) chop. I am OBSESSED with the Florida State Seminoles so they seem to go hand in hand. GO BRAVES, and GO NOLES (#1 BABY)!

braves mlb hat

2) PANTS. I wanted to have a staple item in my outfit that really stood out. Not just another pair of jeans. I found these striped pants and knew they had to be part of my outfit. The stripes kind of remind me of an umpire, too. Hopefully they don’t mistake me… although I wouldn’t mind being up close and personal with all those baseball players in those tight, striped pants of their own. #Twinning? LOL.

Stripe Jeans

3) SHIRT. To “class it up” a bit I wanted to pair the pants with a solid, flow-ey blouse. This one seemed to be the perfect compliment. By the way, the pants and shirt aren’t shown together online, don’t worry I didn’t cheat! Yo girl over here is learning photoshop. I’d say this is pretty good for a beginner. Right?

Game Day Outfit

4) SHOES. I’m going through a major bootie obsession as we speak. LOVE these bootie wedges. I definitely wanted to spice the outfit up with a neutral, tan tone. The wedge. Let’s just say I’m not the tallest kid on the block (thanks mom) so I wear wedges/heels everywhere.

5) NECKLACE. This long, arrow necklace is the perfect touch to the simple and classy blouse. (Arrows are so Seminole too. I’m telling you, the struggle is real with my FSU obsession.)

Arrowstack Necklace

6) BRACELETS. I literally see Bourbon and Boweties EVERYWHERE. Honestly, the owner is the cutest, trendiest, friendliest girl eva. We met at an FSU game (shocking, I know) being that we’re both FSU Alum in the biz. She set up a booth at the game selling bracelets galore. The thing with Bourbon and Boweties… they’re all so adorable, and you need AT LEAST THREE. They are sold at local boutiques so check them out so see where you can buy them. Mix and match them. Wear them with every outfit. They’re fabulous. Handmade in the USA! #BourbonAndBoweties #DoYouBangle

Whelp, there ya have it. My FANATICS MLB hat inspired #ootd #gamedayoutfit. I’m not going to lie, I think I really HIT IT OUT OF THE PART with this one. Pun intended. HOMERUN for Decor 2 Ur Door and Fanatics!

Behind D2D Scenes: What to Wear to a Wedding

Filed Under: OOTD by Robin at 10:21 am

FASHION E M E R G E N C Y.

Okay, so our adorable cousin Michelle is getting hitched this weekend. We can’t wait to be with family, celebrate LOVE, and let the good times roll.

One problem: What to Wear to a Wedding?

As y’all know… we’re Florida girls. While we’re from The South (Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama,  Florida does’t count) I must say we are babies when it comes to cold weather. Anything less than 50 degrees and everyone in South Florida may as well be in a parka. I swear the moment we moved into Florida, my blood instantly thinned.

In college, (Tallahassee… GO NOLES) it did get pretty cold. Not going to lie, it was a bit hard to peel myself out of my cozy bed to go to classes some days. But, of course I did! As all of y’all should!

Back to the point, the wedding is in Atlanta. It’s going to be a blast! We have the most amazing family out there. Weather on the other hand… is a 40-60 degree range. For the rehearsal dinner #ootd we’re thinking a cute maxi with maybe a cute jean jacket to keep us Florida girls warm. Here’s some inspiration:

Jean Jacket: 

Jean Jacket

Casual, and WARM

Maxi Dress

Tie Dye Maxi DressThe rehearsal dinner is at a Tex-Mex restaurant so I figured this would be the perfect get-up. Casual, cute, comfy.

Shoes

Fall Booties

I bought these bad boys the other day. Marshall’s, duh. That price isn’t lying to you. How do you beat that? Pair with the outfit above, skinnies, or a little dress. Statement shoes.

Alright, so now that the rehearsal dinner outfit is taken care of (and the travel, hang out, casual outfits are a no brainer) on to the difficult task at hand: The Wedding Outfit. The outfit of course needs to be sophisticated, classy, and still trendy. Oops, did I forget to mention WARM. Yeah, there’s a theme here.

Dress:

Taylor Sterling / Glitter Guide

What to Wear to a Wedding

For Fall, I’d probably go with another color. Less bright, more understated. However, I LOVE this dress and LOVE the idea. Found this on Aisle Perfect so we can’t be going wrong with this option, right?

Dress: 

What to Wear to a Wedding

A little more Mrs. Fancy Pants with this one. Adore the lace sleeve details.

Pair these with some strappy black heels.

Whef, we did it y’all. Lot’s of inspiration to work with. Now, on to packing. Well, working… then going home to pack. Wish us luck in the (cold). LOL.

OOTD: Fall Fashion, Fall OOTD

Filed Under: Decor 2 Ur Door, OOTD by Robin at 8:41 am

Fall Fashion is here.

94469e9eb9877dbe8ae0ac60fbe69210

Totally loving this simple, understated, and trendy outfit. I’ve been looking for that perfect jean jacket for what seems like forever now. It’s as if I’m looking for my cinderella slippers, nothing seems to fit just right. I’m on the hunt! This outfit is perfect for a day of shopping with your besties, a walk around the park, or pumpkin patch photo-shoot! Eeek, have I told y’all how much I LOVE the pumpkin patch. Nothing seems to get you in the season of fall more than thousands of orange pumpkins, hayrides, and scarecrows. Every pumpkin is different. They all have their flaws. I think that’s what draws me to it so much.

Fall Booties

via Spool No. 72

Of course, they are out of stock at the moment. We all have good taste I reckon’. These boots are absolutely adorable. Complete with a comfy built in sock. What more could you ask for in a bootie? I mean, seriously. Pair these bad boys with some winter-white skinnies (yes, in my mind it’s okay to wear white ALL year long… especially in South Florida) or some dark jean skinnies rolled up at the bottom.

I found these at Target.com for buy one get one 1/2 off. I couldn’t resist. One in each color please!

D2D Designs: Top Dorm Room Style of 2014

Filed Under: D2D Designs by Robin at 7:42 am

We are gearing up to begin designing new sets for the 2015 dorm room D2D season! There are so many trends, patterns, and color palates we are dying to release. While some designs come and go (think 80’s kitchen… yikes!), some trends are here to stay. The ever-popular coral and aqua dorm bedding was the top seller of the 2014 season and is sure to stay.

The design your own custom duvet in this color palate was absolutely stunning. Instead of a bed scarf, some of our D2D fans chose to use the Coral and Aqua Designer Bed in a Bag set as inspiration and add each item separately using the design your own  section.

What was your favorite set (or color palate) of the 2014 season? We’d love to hear from you.

OOTD: Too Early for Fall?

Filed Under: Decor 2 Ur Door by Robin at 9:39 am

Fall is quickly approaching. If you’re like us… it is still a scorching 90+ degrees in sunny Florida (where in South Florida there isn’t much of a winter). I don’t know about you but i love fall. The cool mornings, the boots, booties, and furry vests. Fall style is simple and chic.

Here’s our current struggle: can we switch over our summer closets yet or is it too soon? I’m not going to lie, I’m chomping at the bit. I went to get my nails done this week and and chose an army green. I gave my “fashionista” advice to my sister and told her to get a dark barney (she chooses baby pink too much). The nail technician told her it is too soon and “you must be from somewhere else.” I disagree. What do y’all think?

While my fall obsession continues, I put together a quick fall/summer transition inspiration that I think is a perfect “season switch” outfit. Not too fall, but not too summer. Here’s the look:

OOTD

Fox Necklace, Sterling Silver Chain, Burnt Orange Copper Metallic Ribbon Bow, Lampwork Pendant, Woodland Necklace

OOTD

Big Brass Triangle Necklace // Long Geometric Necklace // Choose your length // WARRIOR Necklace

P.S.- I think the reason I love this necklace so much is because it is PERFECT for FSU game day. GO NOLES!

(These are pretty FSU game-day worthy, too. Oops… maybe I’m obsessed?)

Happy fall y’all! Even our Florida fans!
