Store Discovery! Pottery Barn Outlet

I can't get over it. All I want to do is throw on a maxi dress, slip on my flip flops, and spin around in the warm sunny air while birds sing their new song of spring! 

A girl can dream :) 

My actual position currently is sitting at a desk, surrounded by windows with the blinds pulled down and closed, so that the heat can't get in since our average temp has been around 78 degrees by the end of the day. Nothing like being hot and angry to make your work day go by any quicker. So even though I can't actually SEE the beautiful 60 degree paradise outside, I do know it's there, and that sill makes me just giddy. 

OK, on to the actual purpose of this post. 
So I don't know how many of you guys out there shop at Pottery Barn, but I've always had a special place for them in my heart. Mainly because I can't afford much in the store so I tend to just gaze at the window displays with a sense of longing and aw......but no more! Because of THIS POST over at my favorite blog Young House Love I went on the search for a Pottery Barn OUTLET STORE and found one about an hour away in Jeffersonville! 

I was soooo excited to go inside. It was actually a little overwhelming at first, there was just so much stuff to look at!!! 

Just look at how stunning that navy blue is with that burnt orange. 

Dozens and dozens of rugs to choose from. 

The finishing on that dresser reminded me of sea shells. Looks so great paired with those "drift wood" lamps. 

These napkins were calling out to me. How great would your dinner table look with a little pop of glam like these babies!! 

For some reason I kept being drawn to this piece of fake coral. I have no idea what I would do with it, but I wanted to snatch it up so bad! 

And of course, who doesn't need a giant horse head?? 

The prices were pretty awesome compared to what you would find at a normal Pottery Barn store. Eric did find a sofa that he thought would've been a great deal since it was an additional 20% off, but alas we left empty handed. I just can't seem to justify buying anything to decorate our apartment now since I know we are trying to buy a house in the near future. 

The rest of our weekend was pretty low key. 
My current obsession is pouring over the amazing ideas in this book from my favorite bloggers (as mentioned above). Like the cover says; 243 sah-weet ideas to give your home a little pizzaz! So many fantastic ideas in here, I want to do them all. 

I also made a new coffee table arrangement out of a mirror I haven't found a new place to hang and some sea shells we brought back from our honeymoon 

Snaps for using what you already have to decorate! And how wonderful are tulips right now?! Can't get enough. 

Hopefully your weekend was also spent enjoying this new warm weather, and maybe making plans on how to spend time in it for the summer! 

-  Adios! -
