I always wanted to be the type of girl…

who slept on white bedding. A girl like that made her bed every single day. A girl like that tucked the corners of her sheets in with military precision. A girl like that did not sleep beside a tumble of books, the length and breadth of an actual human being, a literary security blanket, rendering the full sized bed a twin instead. A girl like that never snuck a chocolate chip cookie in the middle of the night or ate popcorn in bed while watching Netflix on her computer. A girl like that was a grown up.b77265ecd95e6a5d1c308c209dbd76ce

This woman bought flowers once a week and they slept beside her on her nightstand. She didn’t have to set nine alarms in order to wake up. She just sat up after the first one went off, all fresh faced and gorgeous, and started her day (after making her bed first, of course).d0a56895cb19cd6ddd1e5fd66be34a45

I wanted to be this girl for so long. When my parents split, I needed to pick out bedding for my mom’s and I wanted white but of course, would you let a high school girl with two giant dogs have white bedding? Then for my dorm, I chose the girliest and preppiest bedding you can imagine because I figured soon I would have to forgo to the pink for something more wedding registry appropriate (a whole other story, friends) which I used for years. Until of course, I moved to San Francisco where of course, I wanted white bedding. But I wasn’t that girl, that woman. I was in the middle of an adventure which included trying to figure out who the heck I was so I chose the comfort of gray. I do love gray.

But there is something about white bedding. Do you know what I mean? There is something about someone who can maintain white bedding. They must have it more together than the rest of us, right?

I’ve decided they don’t.3274864ceb7c34aa032f6247bee15dd3

I’ve decided that I can be that woman who sleeps on white bedding. I can even be the woman who sleeps on Anthropologie bedding (huge sale, huge….incredible, honestly). The fact that it is white and from Anthro will surely stop the cookie and popcorn in bed. And the gorgeousness of it will have me making it every single day and working at my desk after work like a proper young woman, in my imaginary apartment.Screen Shot 2014-07-02 at 8.39.43 PMMy bedding, via the huge sale at Anthro. I went with different shams/pillows though. Follow me on pinterest here. And don’t forget the raffle for an amazing print hand lettered by, Jasmine.

      Can you own it and have a blog named Kids and Cabernet? I think you can’t. hahaha

      Instead of waiting to be that girl, I am hoping the bedding will help me to be that girl. Or at least the important parts of that girl. Like no more twenty books laying next to me and making my bed every morning no matter what!

    OH MAN, I’ve wanted white bedding too- but it turns out… sheets get dirty real quick. Real talk… even when you shower right before bed. And I just don’t wash my sheets every week (real, make me squirm to type, talk).

      That’s why I go to Homegoods for sheets (I just got the duvet) because then I can buy several sets and get a higher thread count for less. But you know Martha always says to have white sheets so you can always just bleach. 😉

    I’ve always wanted to be that girl too but you know what? I’m just not 🙂 I’ve always wanted perfect, white bedding and I’ve tried to convince my husband but he refuses. I suppose I’ll do it in a guest room someday! I’m surprised that he let me recently bring coral into our bedroom. That boy just wants blue everywhere!

    I love your bedding! And Anthro bedding is awesome. My husband and I have a white bedding set that we use for spring/summer. I walked into Pottery Barn to register and I absolutely fell in love with it. You’ll love it 🙂

    I am so obsessed with all of Anthro’s white bedding but I know that if I ever caved and spent the ungodly amount of money on it, I would spill red wine on it within a day. Eating (and drinking wine) in bed is probably my favorite activity and I refuse to give that up just yet.

      I totally understand. I never thought I would own Anthro bedding but the sale was out of control and I had giftcards. But red wine would not be a good idea 🙂

    I had white bedding in college, and I am not even joking when I say that the first night I slept in my bed I ordered late night Jimmy Johns and spilled all over it. Lovely.

    this is a fun post! i’m glad i’m not the only one who thought about white bedding this way! i always wonder–HOW DO THEY DO IT?!

    We have white sheets (love that I can just bleach the crap out of them) but I’m still too scared to pull the trigger on a white duvet/comforter! They’re my favorite though. Love your new set!

    I love white bedding! I just switched to white sheets (finally) a few weeks ago. I love the feeling of all white!

    i love the clean, clarity and beauty of white. love white walls, love white couches. love white floors. but so so hard to keep clean. my friend had a gorgeous white couch and i was like, i would die for that. she just kept shaking her head, “it drives me crazy!”
