A few things I am loving lately.



I love the color and cut of this blouse.

One Piece

I saw this yesterday in Everything but Water.  It is so gorgeous and reminds me of the Kiini line but way less.

Off Shoulder Blouse

Just ordered this beauty for myself.  I am a sucker for white and off shoulder.  I also love the lace detail.  It also comes in red and black.

Mara Hoffman Cover-Up

I love this cover-up, especially the print.  I am hoping it goes on sale before my vacation.

Ruffle Tee

Under $50 and comes in several colors.

Statement Earrings

These come in 3 colors.  Such a fun statement earring.

MK Wedges

I love a nude wedge, they go with everything and make your legs look so long.

Ruffle Tee

This is only $35.  Also comes in navy.

Maxi Dress

I love the colors in this maxi.  This would be perfect for a wedding and it is under $100.

Embroidered Clutch

TB Purse

I adore everything about this bag.  From the color to the style.


I just bought these last weekend. They are only $12 and super cute.

Anna Beck Ring

Love, love, love.  I am a huge fan of all Anna Beck jewelry.  

PJ Set

Super cute pj’s.  I like the Nordstrom line because they are not crazy expensive and they are super soft.

RM Purse

This is now 50% off!  I have this same purse in another color version from last year and love it.  You can carry it as a clutch or cross body.  There are several colors on sale right now.

DV Sneakers

I am loving these DV sneakers.  Such a cute casual sneaker, which I am now a huge fan.  They come in several color options but I am partial to the blush and taupe.

As I mentioned yesterday the Shopbop Friends and Family Sale starts today!  I shared a few of my personal favorites yesterday that I own and love- you can see them all HERE if you missed my post.  

Today I wanted to share some items on my wishlist and a few things I ordered with the discount!

Don’t forget to use code INTHEFAM when you check out!

shop bop friends and family


I love my other LeSpecs glasses that are this same style but a different color so much I ordered this pair as well.  They fit my head really well and they are not crazy expensive. I liked that these had gold lenses and a black frame which was different from anything else I own.

Fringe Earrings

I also ordered these earrings.  I had been admiring them for awhile and I really like the gold/tan color combo because I feel like they will go with so many outfits.

I really like this fun version as well.

DVF Off Shoulder Blouse

I adore the fun print on this blouse.

Parker Permission Blouse

Such great colors on this blouse.

6 Shore Road Cover-up

Yes please to the bright embroidery paired with white.  

The Great Ruffle Tee

I have heard such great things about this line.  I ordered this Ruffle hem tee to try out.

David Aubrey Necklace

This is a new to me line.  I really like his jewelry designs and the price point is not super high compared to other lines.  

Marysia Swim Halter

I bought this same style suit last year and it is one of my favorites.  They are on the pricey side so it is great to buy them when you can get this discount.  They run on the large side and stretch quite a bit.  I have a small in all my Marysia one pieces.

I also own this one shoulder version and love it as well.

Mara Hoffman Stripe Dress

I really like the bold stripes and silhouette of this dress.

Claire V Leopard Clutch

A classic, I have lusted over this for awhile now.

Dolce Vita Wedges

I just got these for my birthday and LOVE them.  I like that the heel is not crazy high.

Mother Jean Shorts

I bought a pair of Mother jean shorts almost 4 years ago and they are still my very favorite pair!  I like this new version because they are not crazy short.

Sam Edelman Sandals

Simple yet chic, with the discount they come to under $50.

One Resort Maxi

I have mentioned this maxi dress on here before, but trust me it is a winner.  I love the style so much I have 3 different colors.    I really like the azure and taupe colors.  Sizing wise I have a 4 in these dresses.

Nu Bra

This is totally random but I finally bought one of these Nu Bras.  I got the seamless version.  I feel like I frequently need a bra to use with strapless and open back dresses.

Star Mela Dress

I also ordered this.  My only concern is that it will be too short,  I will report back how it fits but I loved the embroidery detail.

JBRAND White Jeans

I am searching for new white jeans my other ones are so worn out!  My mom loves these Jbrand ones.

English Factory Boho Blouse

I love the pretty shade of blue and it is not crazy expensive.  Would look great paired with white jean shorts or jeans.

Sam Edelman Thongs

How adorable are these pom-pom sandals?

Currently Loving.

Fringe Dress

After my friend Ashley posted a picture of this dress in the store I knew I needed it.  I think it will be the perfect Easter Dress.  All sizes were just restocked too with a ship date of 3/14.

I would say it runs on the small side.  I am normally a 4 but the 4 was snug in my hips so I went up to a 6.

Fringe Shoes

I ordered these shoes last week and I can’t get enough of them!  They are comfortable and under $100. I am wearing them above:)

Tie Dye Blouse

The cutest off shoulder blouse and only $39!  

Ella Moss Maxi

I love the beautiful pattern on this maxi!

Free People Dress

I have featured this dress on here a few times.  I had originally ordered the blue but I switched it for the black and I am loving it.  I have worn it 3 times this week thanks to the amazing weather. I am wearing a size small, it is a loose fitting dress though.

Jeffery Campbell Wedges

I adore the cut out detail on these and the color is perfect for Spring.  I always love Jeffery Campbell shoes they are a good price point and good quality as well.

Stripe Shift Dress

I always love a shift dress, it is such a classic silhouette.  The colors in this dress are gorgeous.  This would be a great Easter dress.

Baublebar Earrings

I think these are so fun for Summer.   I really like both the hot pink and turquoise.

Tata Harper Purifying Face Mask

Tata Harper just came out this new purifying face mask.  Her regenerating face mask is hands down my favorite mask.  I just ordered this one and can’t wait to try it.  I love all her products.  

Belli Clutch

I featured the matching tote for this a few weeks ago.  The clutch is the perfect summer accessory and under $70!  

BR Laser Cut Out Tank

I tried this on in the store this week and it is so cute on.  I love the cut out detail!

Spell Folklore Town Dress

This is a new brand to me and I am loving the fun boho floral prints!

Clu Short Sleeve Dress

I own this dress in the long sleeve tee shirt version and wear it often.  I am digging this short sleeve version, especially the all white combo.

Dolce Vita Lace Up Flats

I really like a gladiator style sandal in the Summer.  They are cute with dresses, shorts and skinny jeans.  These come in brown and black. They would look great paired with the 2 dresses above.

Rebecca Minkoff Clutch

This is the same style clutch as my colored fringe one.  The style is great and I really like the neutral colors.

Jessica Simpson One Piece

I have heard nothing but rave reviews about Jessica Simpson’s swimwear line.  This reminds me a lot of Mara Hoffman but is half the price.  I always love a strapless one piece for tan line purposes but this comes with a removable strap as well.

Fringe Cover-Up

This cover-up is only $33!  it comes in 6 different colors and you better believe I ordered one for our upcoming vacation!

This is on my Spring wishlist.  The color and style are perfection.

Jeffery Campbell Armour Suede Flats

I love Jeffery Campbell shoes and they are always a great price point.  I would love the tan color of these.

Equipment Aubrey Dress in Grid Stripe

This is my favorite style Equipment dress because it is so versatile.  I own this in the leopard version and wear it all the time.  I actually just ordered this one for an upcoming party we have.  I love the rich blues for Spring.

Topshop Off Shoulder Dress

I bought this same dress last year in the black version and loved it.  The fit is great and I loved the embroidery detail.  It sold out last year so I have a feeling sizes may go quickly.

The black version from last year.

McGuire Jeans

Meet my new favorite jeans.  Totally obsessed.  The fit is TTS.  I like them because they sit higher up and don’t stretch out too much.  They are a slim,  sleek,  and flattering fit.

Splendid Jessa Sandals

I really like the style of these with the thicker heel and cut out detail.   

Gilded Retro Sunglasses

I just bought these sunglasses over the weekend and love them.  They remind me of some more expensive brands I have seen but they are only $15!

Mara Hoffman Dress

Mara does it again with this fabulous dress.  Love the pattern and colors! 

Rebecca Minkoff Tassel Purse

They just released a new version of the tassel purse I have.  I love this smaller circle size, such a fun purse.

Astr Cold Shoulder Blouse

This is a trend I am really still loving.  This is a great way to try out the open shoulder trend without breaking the bank, its under $70. It also comes in white.

Madewell Fringe Cardigan

I tried this on in the store and loved it.  It was too similar to a Joie Cardigan I already own or I would have bought it.

 This would be a great transitional piece for now and later.  It also comes in black.

Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace

This is such a great versatile necklace for layering or alone.  I love this new color they came out with for the Spring.  It would look so good paired with white.

Tory Burch Peasant Top

I have been loving so many of Tory’s new arrivals.  The print on this blouse is so gorgeous and I love that it can be worn on your shoulders or off.

Dolce Vita Mules

I have been wanting to try a pair of mules.  These would go with so many different outfits.

Old Navy Camisole

Looks so much like Tibi but it is Old Navy!  This would be cute now layered under a cardigan and alone come Summer.

Tkees Flip Flops

These are hands down the best flip flops so comfortable and just out in 2 new colors.  I love the rose gold and gray.

|| The Lady and The Sailor Tee Shirt Dress ||

I love a good tee shirt dress.  They are super easy with kids.  The material is thick on this dress which I like,  if the material is too cheap and thin it is such a bad look and fit.  This one just got marked down- I am wearing a size 2 which is equivalent to a medium it runs on the small side.

I am so in love with my bracelet from ESN.  English the designer was sweet enough to send me one with the kids names engraved and I just adore it.  I have been wearing it every single day.  It is such a great bracelet alone or layered.  English crafts and stamps each bracelet in her home studio in Atlanta, GA.  I just love that they are each individually made and have such special meaning. You can do just silver but I loved the silver with the gold dots. And you don’t have to do just names, you can do dates or whatever combo you prefer.   This is such a great gift for any new mom or a mothers day gift. Check out English’s whole site it is filled with beautiful handmade jewelry.  I also love the namesake necklace.  Shop all these beautiful handcrafted bracelets and jewelry HERE.

I need these sandals basically because they were named after our family but also because they are only $65!  A great price for a classic summer sandal. Available in black and tan.


This has my name written all over it.  Love the blue and pink stripes.  Such a great everyday dress.


I have been smitten with gold serving ware lately.  I adore these gold cheese knives and they are on sale for $23!!  These would make a great hostess gift too.


I tried this tank on and fell in love with it at Hamdpen of course my size was sold out so I stalked it online.  It is made of the softest material and I just love the back!  Rag and Bone never disappoints.


Another fabulous sandal from Splendid.  You cant beat the price!  Love the strawberry red color. They also come in black!


If you are looking for the most comfortable sweatshirt look no further. It is uber soft inside and super affordable.  Trust me you won’t want to take it off.  This one from La Senorita Jolie is my new favorite.  I am in it all the time.  So my friend Brooke looks way better in it than me, but I included my pic too so you can see the Wheat color that I am wearing.  Use code LSJ-DBDD for free shipping on all your orders! 
This long sleeve tee is another of my LSJ favorites.  It s awesome for a longer tee and so soft!


I have been seeing these Gap Jean Shorts everywhere.  They look like all the expensive ones but for a fraction of the cost. Love the lighter wash and cuff. I def want to order a pair any tips on how Gap shorts run size wise?

I am pretty sure this is going to be the Swing Sweater of the summer.  Love the long loose fit and it comes in some great colors!!


Until I saw Megan’s post yesterday I had no idea this coat was back out in a new color for Spring.  I own this in the dark brown and love it. I get compliments every time I wear it. It looks way more expensive than it is, at only$84!! I love the ivory color so much for Spring.



I have been obsessed with crossbody bags lately. I love my everyday one but I wish it was a touch bigger.  This one is my fore runner I am considering.  It comes in black too but I love the tan!

These are hands down my most favorite pants for Frances, she is in them most days.   They fit well, wash well and are just plain cute!

Vince tees are my favorite.  This gray tee would be a staple in any closet.   You could layer it for winter or it is lightweight enough for Summer.   Love the pintuck detail.

Am I the only one ready for warmer temps and summer dressing?  I love this maxi from Greylin.  It would be perfect now with a leather jacket  or sweater as seen below and then alone for summer.

I have lusted after these beautiful plates forever.  They are finally on sale (still expensive though) but I think they would be something you would use all the time when entertaining.  And how gorgeous would the green be at Christmas??  An investment but just think I have had the same dishes for almost 7 years now, you would get your moneys worth for sure.


While I patiently wait and save to buy my Nepresso, I have been using my Aerolatte Frother.  I had forgotten I had bought this because I didn’t drink much coffee while I was pregnant but I busted it out this weekend and I have been enjoying the perfect Cappuccino every morning.  It honestly makes getting up so early not so bad to know I can have a tasty cappuccino.  This little handheld device is only $16 totally worth it!


I am a sucker for stripped dresses and tee shirt dresses.  This fits the bill plus I love the T by Alexander Wang line. It also comes in a Mintblack color combo that I really love.

I just got my first Chaser tee and I am obsessed with it.  You know those super soft worn in feeling tee shirts?  Well that is just want these feel like.  They are a looser fit and not clingy which I love.  I have a solid color one but really want this Baseball Tee for the Summer.

There is nothing I love more than a good white blouse.  It can go with anything and always looks classy.  This is the perfect Spring/Summer blouse.

I have really been into cute napkins lately, they make entertaining and setting the table so much more fun.   These are currently on sale 50% off and I love them.  Great for a Summer Outdoor Party!

I have been seeing alot of Tortoise in the spring/summer trends forecast.  I love these earrings and the price ($34) even better.   They would go with everything.  The tortoise bracelets are already sold out so snag these earrings before they do too!

I love this Summer spin on the D’Orsay flats.  These come in camel and black and would go with everything!  I am partial to the camel color it would look so good paired with white skinny jeans or white shorts!

What is not to love about this top?  Love the color and style.  It would be great with leggings or jeans.  I think it would be great post baby as well because it is loose to hide all my loose parts:)

You might remember my crib sheet from yesterday in the nursery, well I love it so much I am going to order another one in a different pattern.  The biscuit home crib sheets are the softest cutest things around.  I am debating between the Amber or Jamie.  My two favorites!  I highly recommend these crib sheets to any of you moms to be.

|| Rag and Bone Ripped Skinny Jeans ||
Shopbop just added a bunch of new items to their sale and these Rag and Bone jeans are on there!  They are my favorite and I am digging the distressed look.  Thinking these will be ordered for post baby.  Rag and Bone rarely goes on sale so snag them while you can.  These Rag and Bone Jeans are also on sale, love them too for an edgier look.

I have been lusting after this dress for awhile now.  It is finally on major sale.  Neiman Marcus is having additional 25% off all sale items.  That brings this dress to only $112.  I think it would be great well into fall with booties and a leather jacket. Shop the Neimans sale here.  Sale ends tonight so get your shop on!

I am a huge fan of infinity scarfs.  They are easy to throw on with any outfit and you don’t have to worry about looping them the right way, they always lay perfectly.  I love this one from Club Monaco, all the neutral colors are fab and would go with anything.

|| Mystic Topaz Gem Bib ||

I am still loving a statement necklace.  I love the royal blue and emerald green in this one, the perfect colors for fall.  I bet you won’t believe me when I tell you it is only $34.  I think it would look great over a plain gray or ivory sweater !

Happy Thursday y’all. We are having the best time on vacation, seriously my favorite week of the year! I will be back on Monday with some pictures. Today I wanted to pop in with a few of my current obsessions.  Then I have two more fabulous nursery designs for Friday and Saturday!


Right now Gap is having their huge baby and kids sale up to 40% off everything.  There are some fab deals but this little number stole my heart.  I picture my little girl in this leopard dress with tights and booties next Fall.  Major.


This dress looks so comfy and totally conducive for a pregnant belly.  I love that they paired it with my Rag and Bone Booties it is practically screaming for me to buy it.  A great casual Fall Dress.  I love that the scalloped hem line steps up a plain tee shirt dress and makes it more feminine.


This blouse is such a steal at 70% off.  I can’t believe its still in stock.  I love Rebecca Taylor blouses so much.  They are always so feminine and so flattering.  You could easily wear this one into Fall with skinny jeans and leather coat or draped sweater.  I love the colors they are so bright and fresh.


Is this not the perfect little black dress??  and it is only $58.  You could wear this for so many occasions.


I am loving this rich red color for Fall and love the loose relaxed fit of this dress.   Great paired with booties.


I featured the leopard Gap flats last week and then saw these and love them just as much.  They come in four gorgeous colors for Fall and are such a fab price.


I am not sure I could pull these pants off but I kind of want to try.  I keep seeing this style pants everywhere.  They look so comfy and chic at the same time.  You could dress them up or wear them causally with a tee and flip flips for running errands.   They look just like these Joie slouch pants but for a fraction of the price.


I am convinced I need a cape for Fall and this one is top of my list.   It would go with everything and I love the slight herringbone pattern.

I am loving these baskets for our nursery.  How cute are they?  It is great you get two to a set.

I would use one for bath toys in our bathroom and one for toys in the nursery.


I think these are pretty much the perfect flat shoe for Fall.  I will be getting a pair of these.  Nude + Black is always a good combo.


As I am sure any of your preggos know the larger you get the more uncomfortable it gets to sleep at night.  When I was pregnant with Sterling I just used a King size pillow, but this time the people at Bump Nest were sweet enough to send me a real pregnancy pillow.  This pillow is amazing.  It is the softest most luxurious pillow ever and their pillowcases come in such cute fabrics.  I am pretty sure I will be sleeping with this even after the baby comes- that is if I can get it back from Sterling he is obsessed with it too!


This is the cutest shift dress ever.  As you can tell by my header I am a fan of pink and orange.  This dress would work well into Fall too paired with a cute leather jacket and booties.  Even better it is less than $100!


Besides my Rag and Bone Jeans, my other favorite jeans are the high rise JBrand ones.  They sit higher up and suck in all your muffin top- I promise.  I am smitten with this charcoal gray color for Fall.


I am a sucker for cute stripe tops.  They look so chic in the Fall.  Especially layered under blazers and sweaters.  Velvet is one of my favorite brands for Tees, they fit well and are so soft.  This tee is a must for me this Fall!


Of course after seeing the stripe top with the Leopard Skirt I became obsessed with it.  It is sold out already on Shopbop but I found it on Zappos.  It is the perfect leopard skirt, I love the colors and pattern!  The skirt is a cashmere blend so I am sure it is so comfy and the price is a steal!  I am thinking it might even fit me pregnant because it has stretch in it!


I love the look of this casual jacket.  It looks like tweed but it is Terry.  An easy jacket to toss on over anything.  You can get 20% with code GAPNEW

 There is nothing I love more than a shift dress, probably my favorite style of dress easily.   This dress is such a steal at $59.  It comes in black and royal blue too, for the price you should buy two!


I looked at this tunic in the store over the weekend and loved it.  The colors are so vibrant, glad I didn’t buy it because now all JCREW Swim is 40% off, so I can get an even better deal!  This tunic is beach perfection.


I am all about loose flowy tops paired with jean shorts.  My favorite outfit combo this Summer.  Love this Free People version and the price is great!  It would also look cute with skinny white jeans.


I have lived in my Vince tunic these past few weeks so pretty sure I need this dress next to add to my collection.  I feel like I could wear this dress thru the Summer and then into Fall.  Such a versatile number.

I have really been loving this line, Sabine, on Piperlime.  The pieces are really cute and so affordable. This top is so cute, I love the detail at the bottom.  Just can’t decide if I love the white or blue more!  It is only $49 ladies, doesn’t it look like a $200 shirt?!

I have the larger version of this necklace and love it.  It is one of my favorite necklaces.  The small one is perfect for layering!

Shopbop just added a bunch of new arrivals to their sale and this dress is one I have had my eye on forever.  Such a classic dress and I love the detail in the back.

These sandals are only $59!  A great Summer sandal paired with dresses or shorts.  I could even see them worn into fall with skinny jeans.  Since clothes don’t really fit me anymore I am really into shoes and hoping to snag these!

This is such a gorgeous one piece. Since hitting up the pool last weekend I have decided I am one piece kind of woman for the most part so I want to invest in a few nice ones that I feel good in and that don’t look like “Mom suits”.  This fits the bill with flying colors.


When I first saw these sandals I could not believe they were less than $100.  They looked so expensive to me.  I have been on the hunt for a great pair of black flats and I think these are just what I am looking for!


I am beyond obsessed with all things Rag and Bone right now.  They are quite possibly the perfect brand.  Sadly I probably can’t fit in these right now but I need them for next Summer.  The perfect jean short.


You are not going to believe me when I tell you this  nude print is only $28!! Amazing steal, right??  After I saw Melanie post hers on instagram I knew I needed one.  Thinking I am going to hang it in our bathroom.


This dress is made out of super soft jersey.  I love how it flows.  I think it would be great worn pregnant because of the loose fit.  Such a great versatile dress.  It also comes in an equally fabulous eggplant color.


I go out of town frequently mostly to Charlotte.  I usually just go for a few days and I have been on the hunt for a cute weekender bag.  Right now I use a duffel bag that I have had since college- it is time to upgrade.  I am officially obsessed with this adorable weekender.  It looks so chic.


I love the simplicity of this bangle, I think you could wear it daily.  Either alone or layered on with other bracelets.  You could do your own name but I would probably do it with Sterling’s name.

Lately I have been having a love affair with tie dye.  I guess my inner hippie is coming out.  I love this little tee.  It would look so cute with jean shorts or white jeans.


I am pretty smitten with all things Velvet is coming out with lately.  Love this maxi it looks so comfortable and chic.  Perfect for a day of running errands or a night out.  Love both colors equally and the price is great.


After Erin blogged about these this week and after seeing them in every fashion magazine from Bazaar to Vogue, I am fairly certain I need a pair.  These are my three favorites.



I am such a huge fan of Social Dress Shop and my love just grew even more now that Sarah picked up the line Hunter Dixon.  How amazing is this dress??  The colors, the pattern, the style it is pure perfection begging me to buy her.  Good news for you all Sarah is offering 25% any full priced items with code DRESS25.  


I can’t believe these are from the Gap!  How fabulous are they??


Download it, its good.  So many amazing artist including my boy Jayz.


This is the most gorgeous bathing suit ever.  It looks like it would be so flattering.

I love BB Dakota.  They make such cute affordable dresses.  I am about yellow for this summer and love the simplicity of this dress.  There is so much you could do with it.  Wear it now with a jean jacket/leather jacket and booties or rock it in the Summer with a cool necklace and flats.  So versatile.


After seeing these on Natalie’s blog, I became obsessed with them.  I really want the large one!!  It would be so cool for serving cheese or to display jewelry, the possibilities are endless!


I posted a picture of this dress on Instagram and got mixed reviews but you know what I love it.  I think it is such a cute unique dress.  I see myself living in it this Summer.  Plus I never tire of leopard.


How amazing are these curtains?  They are from Jonathan Adler’s new collection for JCPenny.  They are such a steal at only $40 a panel. I am thinking I want a pair for our guest room!


I swear this dress looks just like a Velvet one I saw online for $150.  This one is only $27.  So cute. I will be buying this for Summer no doubt.

I also really like this Stripped one as well.  Reminds me of LemLem.


Loving these chic shoes from Splendid and they are such a good price.  I love the black because I feel like it would go with everything but a part of me wants the neon ones.


I am beyond obsessed with the print on these bathing suits.  Now I just need to decide one piece or bikini…..


It is no secret I am pumped about GP’s cookbook that was released today.  I can’t wait for mine to arrive at my doorsteps.  First up I want to make this Salmon with Siriacha Sauce.

I just love this dress.  The color, the neckline, the style,  it is the perfect effortless summer dress.  Love it so much it will be arriving at my doorstep tomorrow.


I like to treat myself to one new pair of Tory Burch shoes each year and this is my pick for the summer.  The black is so classic but I am really leaning towards the yellow.


I am smitten with pink for Summer and this necklace is the perfect shade.  It would go with everything!  Best part it is only $36!


I bought a case of this wine for Sterling’s birthday party that we never got to use because the stomach bug hit us hard.  Anyways lucky for us, because Matt and I have been enjoying it, every night the past week.  It is a great wine and only $6.99 at Total Wine.  Go buy some today, I promise you won’t regret it!  I am actually off today to stock up on more!



This blouse comes in 3 fabulous colors and I can’t decide which I love more.  It is such a great price, only $59 plus you can get additional 10% off with code TUESDAYS today.


I am  pretty sure I am going to order this shower curtain for our hall bathroom.  Let me tell you cute shower curtains are hard to come by.  I have looked a million places and this is the forerunner so far.   I love the look.


I have wanted a set of cheese markers forever.  I love a cheese tray and entertain with one often.  These are so cute and would be a really great hostess gift as well!


I found this Nest Candle at TJMaxx last week and greedily snatched her up.  I could not believe my luck.  It smells amazing, so amazing that I want to order several more to have on hand.  I light a candle almost everyday in our house.  I think they make stellar gifts too.  This one smells really fresh.

How fabulous are these Ballet Flats?  Love the neon pink and light nude scaling on the side.  Would be so great for summer paired with a cute dress or white shorts.

They also come in this black/gold combo that is pretty cute as well.


I tried on this dress while I was home in Charlotte and I am so wishing I bought it.  Such a cute dress, somebody please snag this!


Totally lusting after this chic cover-up.


Confession I am so not a meal planner, like I decide every morning what I am in the mood for that night and go to the store everyday.   But meal planning would make things so much easier and save us major money.  Love the idea of a chalkboard weekly menu.


Love this adorable idea for breakfast.  So easy and delish.  Now I just need to find some cute egg cups.  Any thoughts on where to find some?


This is the best lipstick ever.  It goes on like lip gloss but has the tint of a lipstick.  I have tried a few of the colors and this one is my favorite.  The perfect hint of color.

I am in the market for a new watch and this one is at the top of my list.  I love the sleek look and leather band that is the perfect shade of brown.  I tend to gravitate towards gender neutral watches.


Remember this Equipment Blouse I blogged about a few weeks back?  Well I found an almost identical version at the Gap for like 1/4 the cost!  I love the red/blue color combo it is so fresh.  It would look great with white jeans in the spring.


I am in the process of planning our hall bathroom makeover.  It is Sterling’s bathroom but also our guest bathroom so I want it to have a masculine yet grown up feel.  Really love the simple details at the bottom.  Actually kind of dig the wall color too.


I am already dreaming about Maxi dresses for Spring and Summer. Always my favorite summer attire. I love the look of a maxi dress now paired with a chic leather jacket and this dress would be perfect for that look.   Great for now and later- and any pregnant ladies  this would be cute too because it is stretchy and long enough to cover the bump.


I scored this book for Christmas and could not be happier.  It is the best coffee table book filled with so many inspiring images.  Kelly Wearstler rocks my world.  Her designs are always creative perfection.


I am big on nude lipstick.  I don’t like to wear too much color during the day. I have heard this is the best nude lipstick there is.  The perfect neutral shade for anyone.

Remember the Social Dress Shop giveaway I hosted a few weeks ago?  Well Sarah was nice enough to help hook me up with this fabulous number.  I had never heard of the brand Annie Griffin before but now its a new favorite of mine.  How fabulous is this dress??  I wore it to two holiday parties last week.  I am obsessed, there are still a few left HERE.


Newest glass obsession, these fabulous etched stemless wine glasses from Anthro.  They make me so happy while sipping my wine.  They are even more gorgeous in person it is hard to see the detail in pictures.


These are my new favorite snack.  These crackers are paper thin and addictive.  They don’t have many calories so you snack without the guilt.  I tried the double cheese flavor and loved them.  I found mine at Publix.  They are great with cheese!


J.Crew has done it again, I have found yet another blouse I need for my closet.  I want the Cobalt blue version such a great color on everyone!


I have a real weakness for fabulous smelling candles and these are my new favorites.  I smelled the Blue volcano one burning at the Anthropologie store opening and knew I had to have one.  The Aloha Orchard also smells amazing.  They won’t break the bank at $14 and they make such cute gifts.


Ever since reading Erin Gates Best of Beauty List I have convinced myself I need every product on there.  First I want to try this eye shadow palette.  I have used my Naked by Urban Decay Palette (which I love) for so long but I am ready for something new and these colors look perfect.  Great neutrals for anyone.

I am obsessed with the colors of this blouse.   And JCrew is having an extra 25% off right now, like I need a reason to shop there.  If I don’t buy this before it is definitely going on my Christmas Wish List.

{Ina Garden FoolProof and Smitten Kitchen Cookbooks}

Two of the best new cookbooks just arrived at my house last week and I am obsessed with both of them.  I have devoured them front to back ear marking all the recipes I cant wait to try.  I highly recommend both!

{Serena and Lily Nova Napkins}

I first spied these napkins in my most recent issue of House Beautiful and could not stop thinking about them.  I love the geometric patterns and bright blue colors.  When entertaining I always like to mix and match napkins, makes it more fun.   I can’t decide if I love the cocktail napkins or regular napkins more.  These would make a great hostess gift:)

{Madewell Silk Dress}

I love love love this dress.  The colors are just gorgeous. 

{Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey}

Let me start by saying I am so not a whiskey drinker.  I prefer clear liquor, but this stuff is so tasty.   Matt and I had a little taste of it last weekend and I forgot how darn good it was. The perfect cold weather sipping liquor.

{Hedgehog Measuring Cups}

How adorable are these Hedgehog measuring cups?  I want them for my kitchen.  They would be the cutest Holiday gift too!

{Jeffery Campbell Solitaire Heels}

This is the perfect shoe in my opinion.  I love the black and camel combo, it would go with everything!!   Pretty sure these are coming home with me.

{Joie Snakeskin Blouse}

My sweet mom surprised me with this blouse when she came to visit last weekend.  She knows me well and knew I had been wanting a snakeskin blouse.  I love this one!  Fits perfectly and I know I will rock it all Fall.


How cute is this dress from Gap?  Love both colors.  A great transitional dress.  It is only $59 but you can get an extra 30% off thru tonight with code THANKYOU.

{Sarah Foster Fresh Everyday Cookbook}

I bought this cookbook awhile ago but I just recently busted it out and I am obsessed.  I have been making so many delicious recipes from it the past week.  For my Chapel Hill friends, Sarah Foster is the one who started Fosters Market which was one of my favorite places to eat while I was in college.  If you love to cook with fresh seasonal ingredients this cookbook is a must!

{Agate Bookends}

Another surprise from my mom.  They look perfect in Sterling’s big boy room!


I love October and all that Fall has to offer.  It is my favorite season.  Bring on the cooler temps, fires, red wine, boots and sweaters, tailgating, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes!

One more thing.  I am also guest posting at Anna’s beautiful blog A NewFound Treasure sharing my nexts!  Here is a sneak peek.  Check it out HERE!

This wine is delish. I took a gamble picking it up and was so happy I did.  Retails for $15.99, onsale for $11.99 at Piggly Wiggly right now.  Go buy some it is excellent.


Love this dress!  It is such a gorgeous color for fall and as far as dresses go a good price.  It looks to me like so many DVF dresses I have seen but for half the price.  I could see myself wearing this for so many events this fall.


Big thanks to my girl Julia who steered me to this blouse at BR.  I really loved both colors so I set off to the actual store to see them in person. The blue was the only one available in my size and I actually loved.  Can’t wait to rock it this fall.  For the price this blouse is a must have!


I can’t wait to try this recipe, as I am obsessed with any and all hummus!


I adore this book.  We read it all the time to Sterling and love the quote.  This book is a great gift for any kids and if you have kids you should buy it!

This dress is top on my list of Fall wants.  It is the perfect little black dress.  I could see myself wearing this to church and date night.  Super versatile!


My favorite Gap tee dress is back in a longer sleeve version for Early fall.  I want all three colors.   If you want one you better order now because the short sleeve version went fast!


These little nuggets are so delicious!   It is a blend of blueberries, acai, cranberries and pomegranate dipped in dark chocolate.  The perfect sweet bite to end a meal.


Great wine, only $15 a bottle.  Highly recommend- their Chardonnay is also delish.


I really don’t need another necklace but I can assure you, this necklace is most likely going to make its way into my fall wardrobe.

Ever since I saw this purse on Melanie’s blog I have been obsessed.  It was just reduced which makes me want to splurge and get it even more!  It would be the perfect everyday tote.  It looks like it should cost way more than it does.  Shocked this beauty is from Ann Taylor.


I adore this pillow from The Zhush.  I am thinking I want to order one for Sterling’s big boy room to sit on his Eames Rocker.  Love the Navy and White Combo and I think it is a bit more masculine monogram that would be perfect for my little man!


I am smitten with this Parker Blouse.  I love the zipper detail on the sleeve.  It would look so cute with my white jeans/shorts.  Leaning towards the pink version since I have been on quite the pink kick lately!

Side note- this blouse is from Shopbop and if you didn’t know they are having their huge Summer sale right now with stuff up to 70% off!  Some great deals on there!


Lately I have been convinced I need a Kilim Runner for my hallway to spice things up.  I found this rug on Ebay and I have been stalking it.  Such a steal at $189 directly from Turkey!


I am obsessed with the new Chanel Magnolia lipstick.   It is the perfect shade of neutral pink.  I went to try and buy it this week at Blue Mercury and they were all sold out:(  Love it- actually love all the make-up this model is wearing.

I love this bag for the summer.  Straw + bright stripes is such a good combo! 


Two of my friends were wearing these adorable sandals at playgroup last week and now I want them.  They looked like $100+ shoes but they are $16.99!


Ever since I bought my cute pink shift dress at Ann Taylor, I have warmed up to the idea of shopping there.  I once thought it was just a store for older women but now I am singing a different tune.  They have some really cute stuff in there.  This is my latest find.  How cute is this top?  I plan to wear it with my white Rag and Bone jeans.  Excuse the poor picture of me in it, but wanted to show how it fits.


I love Kate Upton’s hair in this picture.  I have such thin hair so I feel like I can never get my hair to look good in the top bun.  Any tips?


Meet the newest addition to the Mason household.  I found this beauty at a Consignment store in Mt Pleasant.  It is going to look perfect in Sterling’s big room and he already loves his new chair!  Everyday he wants to sit in it and watch “his toons.”

These are a few of my inspiration pictures.  But how can you go wrong with a sleek Eames rocker?  I love the idea of it covered with a sheepskin throw like in the last picture.

I am loving this necklace from The Bauble Bar.  It comes in Mint and Orange, but I think the Mint is my favorite.   It is only $36!!  It reminds me so much of the JCrew version pictured below that retails for $150. 


How cute is this F21 dress?  The perfect shift dress for summer.  Reminds me of some Phillip Lim and Chole dresses that retail for $400+.  This dress won’t break the bank at $32!


I found this gem on special at Bi Lo of all places.  It normally retailed for $15.99 but was in the discount wine bin for $8.99.  A stellar Sauvignon Blanc I would buy again and even pay full price for!


I just read about this wallpaper in Elle Decor and then I came across it again on Pinterest.  It is absolutely adorable for a child’s bedroom.


I have long been on the lookout for a striped maxi dress and yesterday Julia reminded me to amp up my search.  Well I found this on Piperlime and love it.  Navy/White stripes are so classic and neutral that I plan to funk it up with some chunky bright colored necklaces and shoes. 


This is so going to happen on my patio.  Hope the hubby can deal with some neon pink.  This looks like a pretty easy DIY.

I have found the most perfect fitting pair of jeans. You will never want to wear any other jeans. These jeans are high waisted and suck you in like crazy. I swear I looked like I lost 10 lbs as soon as I zipped them up. Try them you will love them. And the are the perfect Midnight color a mix between black and navy. You are welcome these will be your new obsession too.

Anyone know who makes this fabric? I love it. Like really love it. Need it in my house somewhere. I found it on Pinterest and of course the link did not lead me to the fabric. I am thinking this would look sick on my wingback chairs.

My mom brought me some of this Shampoo and Conditioner and I am hooked. It like 1/3 the cost of the regular Moroccan oil shampoo and conditioner and works just as well if not better. It smells clean and made my hair super sleek.

Julia first alerted me to this adorable Maxi Dress. It is a great price and I love that it looks like a maxi skirt paired with a white tee. The perfect casual cotton dress to run around town in. I think it could also be easily dressed up with a great statement necklace. Hardest thing is deciding what color I want to order. Leaning towards Blue, but I do love the pink.

Ladies this dress is only $69!! How cute is it? I am totally ordering it for this Summer. I love mini dresses paired with flats. I see myself wearing this all summer!

I am sure you have seen some pictures of Loren’s necklaces floating around Pinterest and the blog land. Well I am officially obsessed. Here are three of my favorites. Check out her whole shop HERE it is filled with lots of beauties.

I am all about the floral trend this Spring. I am really digging this blazer. It looks so cute with the colored jeans and shorts. I bet it would even be cute over a dress. And the best part, its super affordable, only $79!


I picked up a bottle of this Chardonnay at Costco and it knocked my socks. It was one of the smoothest Chardonnays I have ever had. Not sure what it retails for elsewhere but it is $16 at Costco. A great buy!

I recently got this cookbook and love it. It is filled with staff favorite recipes from restaurants across the US. A few I can’t wait to make: Brown Sugar and Bacon Cookies, Tuscan Kale Salad, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and Ground Beef Tostadas. The book is also filled with gorgeous pictures of the food and a question and answer section about each chef. A fabulous cookbook!


This dress is just so “me”. The style, the colors, the fit. The price tag not so much, but I am stalking it on Shopbop and as soon as it goes on sale I am buying this dress. I see myself wearing her all the time. I can’t decide which color I like better though!

I adore this dress for Spring. The colors are so pretty and I always love a good maxi dress. I try to add a few new maxi dresses to my closet each year. They are the perfect summer staple. Easy to throw on and be casual or dress up.

Victoria is one lucky lady. Wowza is all I can say. This ad makes me very happy. And their ad campaign sure is working because I now want to buy Matt this underwear. He will look just like this if he wears it, right?

This cereal is my new jam. I swear I ate half the box as soon as I got home from the grocery store with it. I try to be pretty healthy with the cereals I eat. I was burned out on Kashi for awhile but this new cereal has me loving it again. Get some, it’s real good.

I know this room will never be a reality for me because let’s be real Sterling would ruin that room all of 5 secs. All white rooms and kids don’t mesh in my opinion. But a girl can dream, there is nothing I would love more than to have this clean and fresh room in my house. Dying over the coffee table, chairs, and light fixture!

I love these Sam Edleman sandals. Not only are they super affordable but they are cute. I really like the bright yellow for summer. The perfect punch of color for any outfit.

This dress is so my style and I love the rich green color. I own a few Phillip Lim dresses and they are such timeless pieces I know I will own forever. This is making its way on my Birthday List.

I am smitten with this wallpaper. I am toying with the idea of doing it a bathroom or hallway. LOVE.

These candles are made locally here in Charleston. I just got one of these candles for Christmas and it smells amazing. Each candle is poured into a recycled wine bottle, such a cool concept. Fragrances include Merlot, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir and Champagne. I have the Pinot Noir one and it smells heavenly. They sell them at Vieuxtemps on King Street and online HERE

One of my favorite channels came out with a magazine, duh I love it. I only wish Bravo would follow suit. This magazine was a great read with helpful tips, budget finds, and room make-overs. I devoured it!

Need it in my house somewhere!

Happy Humpday!

Here is what I am currently obsessing over!

I saw these on Etsy and was smitten. $75 for a customized Pouf is a real steal! I love every fabric choice too!

So true! Sometimes I need to remind myself of this when I get stressed out about little things.

My mom just gave me this nail polish last weekend. I painted my nails last night and love it. Great color for fall!


JCREW is slowly becoming my go-to for inexpensive gorgeous blouses. Here is another recent find. This is my favorite color color, love me some Cobalt! Best part they keep having an additional 30 percent off purchases.
Silk Pin Tuck Blouse


This is the sweetest book ever. When Sterling was born a friend gave me “God Gave Us You.” I loved it so much I bought Sterling this book for Christmas. He loves it, every night he pulls it out and says “Bear, Bear.” A great book for kids with a story about the real meaning of Christmas.

How gorgeous are these beauties? I think they would make the perfect addition to the bar in our kitchen!

I will be the first to admit is hard to find cute boy shoes. When I saw these I knew they would be perfect for my little man. They are cute and everytime Sterling wears them we get tons of compliments. I will be ordering them every year from now on. They have them online right now at Piperlime in tan and dark brown. I love them both.

Here is Sterling sporting his

This is my new favorite snack. I bought the snack size bags of these for Sterling’s lunch and I keep eating them all. They are crunchy, salty, and have great flavor. If you haven’t tried these you must!

We have finally had some cooler weather here in Charleston and I am all about some scarves. I love this Missoni one, it comes in three fabulous colors and I really didn’t think the price was too bad for a Missoni item. The black and gray color combo is my favorite because it would go with everything!

When I saw this dip in last month’s Coastal Living it was love at first site. I made this dip twice in the last week. It is the perfect appetizer for a party or anytime. Everyone raved about this dish. I am so obsessed with this dip I would scarf it down right now at 7:00 in the morning. I recommend serving with Kettle Chips and adding more bacon than it calls for:) Print Recipe Here. You’re welcome because this will become your new favorite dip.

If you haven’t read the Eulogy Steve Job’s sister gave at his funeral you really should. What an amazing man he was. I got goosebumps reading this especially the end when right before he died he kept saying “Oh Wow, Oh Wow.” So inspiring. Read it Here.

Hard to believe it is October already!! Where has this year gone? I mean seriously it is going to be Christmas before we know it!

A few of you emailed me asking what jeans I was wearing in my post yesterday. They are the Seven for All ManKind “The Skinny” Jeans. I am beyond obsessed with them. I have two of the exact same pair so when one is dirty I have a back up. They suck you in all the right places and sit higher up on your hips so you have no muffin top. These are the best jeans I have ever bought!

I have two old wing back chairs that my parents gave us in our den sitting waiting to be recovered. I have been looking for fabric inspiration and this just might be it. I love the modern pattern on an older style chair. Gorgeous!

Ok I must be living under a rock because I just found this website. Their prices are amazing and the clothes are so cute! Has anyone ordered from here before? These are a few things I am eyeing and honestly I could buy them all for the price of one Tucker Dress! The dresses retail for between $50 and $60. They even have petite and maternity sizes.

Navajo Knit Dress, Shift Dress with Blouson Sleeves,Mini Shirt Dress,Shift Dress with Pleated Neck

I am addicted to these. I have had an abundance of basil from my garden so I have been making tons of fresh pesto. I have eaten these everyday for a week. They are so easy to make and melt in your mouth good. I use Ina’s Recipe HERE.

We did a red wine tasting at our house Saturday and this was the favorite red wine. It is perfect for these cooler temperatures. It had great flavor and a smooth finish. One of the better Pinot Noirs I have had lately. I think it retails for about $16.

I am beyond obsessed with this H&M dress. It makes me so mad we don’t have one here in Charleston. I need this hot pink number in my life. Anyone want to buy it and ship to me that has a store in their city?? I heart hot pink.

I am so glad my favorite lady is back on TV. I love seeing her pregnant and getting more views of all her maternity outfits. She is my style icon. I am also loving her new hire Jeremiah.

I know I just wrote about a face wash last week, but this one is different. While I was at the beach I must have used some old sunscreen (note to self buy new sunscreen every year) and I had a weird reaction, my face felt like sandpaper and had tiny bumps all over it. It was not that visible to the eye but my skin felt like leather and was so tight. My mom gave me this to use to try and scrub my face back to normal. I am not claiming this is what got my skin back to normal but it works great. As soon as you rub it between your hands it heats up- it is crazy it feels warm when you wash your face. It has tiny beads to exfoliate. I feel like the heat and the beads really helped penetrate, polish, and clean my skin. It felt so smooth afterwards.


I have been a fan of her blog for awhile because of all her fabulous recipes. I have owned her cookbook for awhile now and just cooked my first dish out of it this week and it was insanely delish-recipe to come tomorrow. Rea also just got a show on the Foodnetwork which makes me very happy because now I can watch her cook all her mouth watering meals. I think she seems so down to earth and cooks real comfort food!


This website is my new obsession. They have a great selection of clothes, shoes and accessories. My favorite part is Rachel Zoe partners with them and always picks her Must have pieces. I love seeing the affordable stuff that Rachel chooses. They also just added Olivia Palermo, Rachel Bilson, and Byrdie Bell’s picks for the fall. So you can shop and buy their suggestions. Every Tuesday if you have a Banana Republic, Gap or Old Navy Credit Card you can get 10 percent off if you enter TUESDAYS at checkout. Here are two Tucker pieces I keep stalking on this site!

Ever since seeing the gorgeous Hermes blanket in Rachel Zoe’s son’s nursery, I have been smitten. I really want of these babies. I am seriously considering naming my next child something that starts with an “H” so I can warrant one of these even more. Although I was quite shocked when I saw the price tag of $2500, you better believe my hubby would never let me buy a blanket that expensive unless we win the lottery. But a girl has to dream big.

You all know I love to cook and eat alot. It is probably my biggest hobby. This site fulfills all my wildest dreams. It basically features tons of pictures and recipes of food that people have posted. A little similar to pinterest but it is only food. My stomach growls and my mouth waters everytime I look at this site. Here are few things I can’t wait to make that I found on foodgawker.
{orange glazed blueberry doughnuts, buffalo chicken wontons, and caprese eggs}

I am absolutely loving this nail polish color that Chanel released last month called Graphite. It is opaque, shimmery and metallic all at the same time. It has hints of olive green mixed into the gunmetal base. I can easily see this being one of my favorite nail colors for the fall.

I have to admit I am not a big spender on hair products. I usually can’t tell much of a difference between the cheap and expensive versions. I had never heard of this line before but found it at CVS. It was on special for 3 items for $12. Each item is normally $8.99 a piece so it was a great deal. I got the color-treated shampoo and conditioner and the conditioning detangler. This stuff is amazing. It made my hair smell great and very smooth. Upon researching it for today’s post I found out Christophe is a famous hairstylist in Beverly Hills who created this line exclusively for CVS. The man must know how to do some hair because his products are amaze.

I am a pickle freak, I could eat them everyday. My parents brought me a jar of these pickles that they found at Costco and they are so tasty. They are a touch sweet but with spicy heat. The perfect blend of sweet and hot. I eat them daily for a snack.

Hope you all had a nice and relaxing 4th of July weekend. We took the boat out, went to a pool party, grilled out with some friends and watched the fireworks, it was a perfect long weekend.

I am really loving this color combination for interiors which is funny because I am not a huge purple lover. But I love it mixed with subtle gray.

I have a new chef crush thanks to Bravo. I had heard of Rocco before but didn’t know too much about him. I am now hooked on his TV show, Rocco’s Dinner Party. He can be kind of an arrogant dick but that makes me like him even more. I think he is so sexy. I have a soft spot for men that know their way around a kitchen.

I have a slight obsession with candles. These are my new favorite candles. They have a sleek modern look and smell amazing! They are made with an Eco wood burning wick instead of a regular wick, so they last longer. I have been loving the Yasmin and Tuberose scents.

Milly makes some of my favorite bikinis. I am partial to a strapless bikini because I hate a strap tan line. I bought my first Milly bikini 4 years ago right before our honeymoon and I have been hooked ever since. They fit perfectly and look cute. Here is my new favorite.

I have had the hardest time finding an eyeliner that I like. One that is not too thick and goes on smooth. I have tried gel, the flat liner kind you wet, you name it I have tried them all. Oddly enough my new favorite is a good ole black pencil by Nars. It goes on perfectly smooth. Their bronzer is also amaze, it is the perfect color without being too orange.

Enough said, I am making these this week, even though I am supposed to be on a diet after my binge filled weekend. I can’t resist. I love a Reese’s Cup and I imagine these are scrumptious.

I adore an orchid. They are so easy to care for and look gorgeous. I used them at my wedding and I still am obsessed with them. I am staying with my parents this week before my brother’s wedding and I am so envious of my mom’s orchid. How beautiful is it (and yes it is real!)? If you live in Charlotte Jesse Campbell is the man to call he does amazing orchid and plant arrangements!

Just found this adorable dress online. Normally I don’t have too much luck at F21 since most of the clothes are made for rail thin 15 years old but occasionally I find cute stuff like this.

This hummus is amazing. I have tried the edamame hummus with roasted red pepper and sesame and the spicy yellow lentil with apricots and sunflower seeds and they both knocked my socks off. I just bought the Tuscan white bean hummus to try next. They sell them at Harris Teeter. They are delicious!

I am pretty loyal to my Tracey Anderson DVDS, but they get really boring sometimes so I like to switch it up. My brother gave me these Physique 57 DVDs for my birthday and I love them. They are a great workout. I like that two of the DVDs are only 30 minutes so if you don’t want to do an hour you can do the 30 minute one! I am always sore the day after I do these which I think is a good thing!

I love this stuff. It is one of the best exfoliating face washes I have tried. Best part it is dirt cheap like $4! It smells great and really makes your skin so smooth!

What are you loving this week? xoxo

Happy Tuesday Lovelies. Here is what I am obsessing over this week:)


I will be headed here this weekend while I am in Miami and can’t wait. I have heard such fabulous things about this place.


I just got this baby and love her. She might be coming to Miami with me!


This is seriously the best lipgloss ever! All the colors look great on and they really last.


This is the best cheese ever. It is Goat Cheese covered in Rosemary and aged for 45 days. It is a little harder than regular Goat Cheese. The combo of Rosemary and Goat Cheese is divine. Try this asap! I found mine at Costco but I am sure they have it in the gourmet cheese section at the grocery store too.


Ever since I saw the gorgeous Brooklyn Decker in this VB Dress I have been smitten. The color and fit are amaze. I would love to own this beauty.

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week! xoxo

Happy Tuesday Loves. I can’t believe it is April already! Today I am back to kick off the month of April with my current Obsessions.

1) White Cow Hide Rugs
I love this look. Especially the cowhide in the neutral color. I really, really want one for my den or bedroom. I even like the idea of it layered over another rug.

2) Bravo

A whole new slew of reality TV shows are starting this week on Bravo. Including The Real Housewives of New York, Pregnant in Heels, and Million Dollar Decorators. God Bless Bravo, it is honestly my favorite channel hands down. Where else can you watch so many crazies all in one place?

3) Missoni’s Swimwear Line
I heart Missoni. I would love to have a whole closet filled with their signature zig-zag prints. The colors are so bright and happy. I adore these cover-ups and bikinis.

All can be found at SAKS

4) Reese Witherspoon’s Wedding
I think Reese is the sweetest Southern Girl. I am so happy she has found love again. Jim seems like such a catch and he is easy on the eyes too. How gorgeous does she look? Loving that she chose pale pink for her wedding dress and wore her hair down. I can’t wait to see more wedding pictures (yes, I can be a celebrity stalker sometimes).

5) My Baby Boy
Last but certainly not least, this sweet face. I can’t get enough of him, seriously! He is 13 months now and has developed such a sweet and loving personality. He is all boy, into everything and never stops to sit down (ever!) but I love him so much. He is the light of my day and to say I am obsessed is quite the understatement!

I thought I would give my guest bloggers a break this week and share my Obsessions again. It’s been awhile since I shared mine and I have a whole new slew of things I am loving right now!


I finally ordered this video and it did not disappoint. I have been doing it several times a week and it is such a fab workout. You will be sore in places you didn’t think you could be sore. The video is an hour and such a killer workout. I highly recommend it! Heres to hoping I look like Gwyneth Paltrow when its all said and done.


I have been loving Greek Salads lately. I make a chopped Greek Salad probably 4-5 days a week for lunch. Just ordered one today for my girls lunch out with Caycee and Julia🙂 There is something about the combo of feta, olives, tomatoes and cucumbers that I can’t resist. This salad is pure heaven to me.

Now that the weather is warm here, I am so ready to wear some brightly colored frocks. A good tan is probably in order first, but you will see me in bright colors all Summer long!


Thanks to my girl Lisa’s guest blog, I have been hooked on this stuff ever since. I don’t want to even use my other shampoo or conditioners anymore. This stuff makes my hair so silky and smooth minus the frizz- which is saying alot with all the humidity down here! And it smells delightful.


I have been wanting to stencil my bathroom walls for awhile now. Problem is finding the time to do it with a very active one year and narrowing down what pattern I want. I just found out about Olive Leaf Stencils and they have some of the best wall stencils I have seen. I adore the Ikat one.


Last but certainly not least Zac Efron. He has been looking so mature and handsome lately. The hubs calls me a cougar for liking him but I don’t care. Look at those eyes, he is gorgeous.

I hope you all are having a fabulous Tuesday. What are you loving these days?

To spice things up I am going to start a weekly post called Obsessions, where I will share a few things I am currently obsessed with. I am also asking some of my favorite fellow bloggers to participate as well, as guest bloggers. I am so excited to learn about other’s favorite things and share my favs too! Here is my current list of things I am dreaming about:

I love everything about it, it even inspired my new header. I am desperately trying to incorporate some in my house!

This makes me ready for Spring! I love the pinkish coral color. This would look amazeballs on tan hands!

This stuff is the bomb. It cleans brushes so easily. I use gel eyeliner so I use it daily to clean my brushes. I can’t get enough of it!

I am so happy that neutrals are “in” for this spring/summer. I love, love, love a nude dress (especially with a tan, because right now my white legs would blind you)!

Here are two neutral dresses, I would love to have in my closet!

Shakuhachi Dress

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Dress
My parents just bought an ipad and I played with it all last week while I was home. I am now officially obsessed. I need one asap! I am hoping for my birthday in March, I will get one of these beauties (hint, hint).

What are your obsessions? Let me know if you are interested in doing a guest post for me for this weekly series!

  1. I've been so obsessed with an iPad lately too.

    My friend got one for Christmas and uses it like a dvd player for her babygirl in the car. She just straps it to the back of the seat and plays mickey mouse from iTunes. Imagine the possibilities for entertainment for your sweet boy!

    great idea for a series! Count me in for guest blogger if you fancy a bit of ‘aussie’ flava….

  22. oooh SO much fun!
    1. scour eBay for great Ikat options…they come straight from Uzbekistan and are relatively cheap. Great for pillows etc (the "bolts" are usually pretty narrow).

    2. You have GOT to get Orange Fizz! That's so you!!

    3. Love me some iPad. Since I'm an Apple person through and through, this seemed a little redundant in my techie wardrobe…it sort of is, but I still tote this bad boy wherever I go. If you don't have other Apple products, this one will change your life. 🙂
