We are going strong with 75 ladies featured thus far in, IN HER SHOES. I realized today that I probably started every single one of those features with, “So and so is one of my favorites, I love her design style.” Well today’s lady is no different. I adore Marissa from Roost. Her design style is a bit different than mine, but that’s what I love about her. Every time I check out her blog I am met with beautiful eye candy that I wouldn’t have put together, but absolutely love. Enjoy a peek into her busy life.
Hello there, I’m Marissa from ROOST. I’m excited to bring you along for a typical day in my shoes!
Today I’m wearing my trademark gold ballet flats, they go with everything.
Before I put on the pretty shoes, I usually start my with exercise, errands and chores. Today it’s the recycling center and the grocery store. I’ll spare you the boring parts, but I found the first giant magnolia blossom of the year on my jog!
After chores, I collapse sit down to spend the rest of the morning doing business stuff, paying bills, doing emails, reading blogs, writing posts, and doing some online sourcing for virtual design clients. And I usually end up getting lost in the awesome depths of Pinterest.
My husband is in grad school (he graduates this weekend!), so he’s free after lunch to go for a quick drive in the country. We do this as much as possible, Virginia is amazingly green.
After the drive, it’s back to work. Today I’m off to the fabric store: partly to check on some fabrics before recommending them to clients, and partly to see what’s new because I love this place. I resisted the urge to skip up and down the aisles and run my hands all over the fabrics.
I usually spend the rest of afternoon finishing up whatever work I didn’t do in the morning, then make dinner. But today my husband was awesome and decided to take me on a date to our favorite BBQ place. It was so good, I forgot I was supposed to be taking pictures!
After dinner, a walk. My day is incomplete without a walk!
Thanks for tagging along!

A big thanks to Marissa! She was able to send this off before heading out on vacation. I know how crazy it can get to tie up loose ends before getting out of town so I really appreciate her participating.
Happy Friday to all!
