Harbour Island

Hi from Harbour Island, Bahamas! Posts will be far and few between this week as we catch up on some much needed relaxation, but there’s plenty of following along to do on Instagram! We are staying at the cutest cottage called Touchstone’s House. It’s on a 1-acre tropical estate and right on the beach. We’re kinda in heaven. I’ll be sharing a full recap on our stay on the island and at this house, too. It’s a hidden gem. In the mean time, see ya on Instagram and hope y’all have a great week! xoxo

ruffles + stripes

As I’ve gotten older, I’m sort of realizing the clothing pieces to spend the money on and where to save. My closet is nearly barren compared to how it used to look and that’s because I get tired of the trends and just tired of the same old clothes, so I clear them out of my closet so quickly—which really stinks if it’s something I spent a bunch of money on. So I’m refocusing where I splurge and where I save. I’m willing to spend on nice denim, bags, neutral tops that can be mixed and matched with tons of outfits, skirts and dresses that I know I’ll have forever, etc. But, it’s nice to find things that are just as…

this week’s picks

This time next week, we’ll be on vacation and I suddenly realized I have nothing too exciting to wear. Granted, I’m sure I’ll be in a bathing suit + coverup 90% of the time, but I need some dinner options! I placed a 911 order with Revolve and found these cute things while I was surfing the internets. Cute cute! Lots of really budget friendly pieces mixed in! Like these earrings… yep, $9. THE DETAILS 1st row: white top  |   cami   |   striped shorts   |    skirt   |   dress 2nd row: white dress   |   yellow dress   |  lace dress   |   romper   |   maxi dress 3rd row: necklace   |   earrings  …

beach day at sullivan’s island

After church yesterday, we spent the rest of our Easter at Sullivan’s Island. This child LOVES the beach. Eating sand, looking at the seagulls, scouring the cooler for snacks, climbing on the beach chairs, digging in the sand. It’s like his already big personality got even bigger! I could have sat right there watching him play forever. I want to tell y’all about the coverup I’m wearing. It’s from Topshop and feels so amazing on! I love that it’s a caftan style, but it ties together in the front, so you can wear it open like a sweater or closed if you want to be more covered up. It’s light and luxurious, but like all Topshop pieces—it has a reasonable price.…

life lately

My cute boy! Just in case you were wondering what our view was from where we were sitting in the photo above… This is Morgan Creek Grill. Such a great place to go on a beautiful day like this was! Speaking of good weather. Windows open, radio on all the time. Or, ya know, Pandora. Speaking of, what are some good Pandora stations?? I love mixes that make you feel good and are upbeat! This may be the most random thing to blog about, but I did something for the very first time… I got my legs waxed! Ah, I was so nervous but it really was not that bad. Now that it has been a few weeks and I’ve…

my spring faves from the BIG sale

There’s another sale going on and I’m telling you, you don’t want to miss it if you’ve been eyeing some investment pieces or on-trend pieces. At Shopbop, you can take 20-25% off of everything depending on how much you spend with code EVENT17. It’s 25% off if your subtotal is over $500, so your total automatically drops to $375 if that’s how much you have in your cart! The jeans I’m wearing in this picture above are still in stock and they are a great skinnier take on boyfriend jeans. I seriously live in these shoes I’m wearing… and they are included in the sale, too! I’m obsessed with these earrings and can’t believe they are only $24 after the…

the best dress under $70

Something about a red dress just makes me feel super confident and flirty. I found this one at Nordstrom the other day for under $70! The fabric feels great and I love the easy fit.
