Life Lately

Jul 17, 2017

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  Hard to believe we are halfway through July already!!  I wanted to share a few snippets of life over the past week.

Frances Moon has turned into quite the swimmer and wants to go to the pool everyday.

It was shark week at the Aquarium and Sterling is shark obsessed so of course we had to check it out.

You could actually touch these chain sharks- the kids loved it.  Not gonna lie all the sharks freaked me out:)

New stripe tee under $40.  I am wearing a size small.

We finally tried out Pelican snow cones.  They were so yummy.  They had so many different flavors to choose from, I especially loved the lemon and lime.

I had dinner with some girlfriends at a fairly new restaurant here called Stella’s.  I loved it so much I went back again this weekend! The flaming cheese was so yummy.

What I wore:

Dress + Earrings

If you are looking for a new rose to try this one was really good.  My mom found it at Total Wine.

I tried out Good Food while I was in Charlotte and LOVED it!  Thanks to everyone for all the messages about where to eat.  I can’t wait to try some of the other Charlotte restaurants next time I am home.

We ordered several things to share.  The falafel, tomato and corn salad +  Korean beef were some of our favorites.

Cozy Saturday morning wearing my new nightgown and fleece hoodie I bought at the Nordstrom sale.  Trust me ladies you need this hoodie in your life.  It feels like you are wearing a blanket, it is so soft.  I am wearing it as a robe here but it is also cute with regular clothes.  I am wearing size XS/S in the hoodie and a medium in the night gown.

My parents came in town for the weekend and it was nice to spend some time with with them.   Loving this off shoulder maxi dress- I am wearing a size 4.

I love snuggling with my parent’s maltese Moonie, she is the sweetest.  She makes me want a small dog.

Saturday’s OOTD.  Clearly I am still off shoulder obsessed.

Have a great start to your week!

  1. I am in love with Stella’s. It is one of my new faves. Everything is so delicious. I took SS to Pelican’s a few weeks ago and she was a big fan!

    We had a Stellas when I lived in Richmond and it was hands down my favorite restaurant- so yummy and good for all occasions. Loving the new nightgown and fleece hoodie- perfect for those relaxing lounging mornings. Have a good rest of the week!
