Weekend Recap: Mountain Life

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was up in the mountains last week for some R&R with my husband’s family.  I grew up near the coast and have always considered myself more of a beach gal, but thanks to my husband and their summer family traditions, I have been introduced to […]

Friday Favorites: Music

[spotify id=”spotify:track:4yeJlMeKjAohBNcb8yKtkr” width=”300″ height=”380″ /] This song is on constant replay on my Spotify playlist and I think it is the perfect way to start this Friday morning.  The beat is super catchy and upbeat and who doesn’t love to wake up to a little JT? Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!

What I am Wearing: Arm Candy and Crochet

The wedding season is upon us!  This weekend the hubs and I have a wedding welcome party that calls for casual attire.  Since I try to avoid pants whenever it comes to any event wedding-related, I dove into my closet and decided to go for a playful and flirty yellow crochet skirt.  I have it […]

Friday Favorites: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

  With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starting today, I would be remiss not to address all the amazing fall pieces they have!  For those not familiar with how the sale works, Nordstrom teams with hundreds of hot lines (Rebecca Minkoff, Vince, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch, Citizens of Humanity, etc. to name a few) and offers […]

Wishful Wednesday

I am absolutely loving the tribal trend that is all over the place this season.  I’ve seen it on handbags, dresses, bathing suites, hats, even home decor, and I can’t get enough of it!  The bold print makes a chic statement and I love how it comes in neutrals or vibrant colors so there is a reason […]
