I am beyond obsessed with this dress.  I am thinking about ordering this for my upcoming birthday, a wedding and a girls trip I have coming up. Also available in black HERE.

MAY BOOKS

Big thanks to my girls Caycee and Lili for introducing me to this awesome line of planners and notepads.   I love that their slogan is “life is too short for ugly notebooks.” You can custom create your notebook with any background, monogram, and pages you like.   Here is a sneak peek at what is coming my way.  They have so many fabulous patterns to choose from!

ALL HAIL THE GREEN NECKLACE

This is my new favorite necklace.  Great price and it goes with everything!  I am now putting myself on a self imposed necklace shopping hiatus!  I have way too many! It says this is back ordered but mine came fairly quickly.

MADEWELL PRINTED TEE DRESS

I am in love with this Madewell number.  Every time I go home to Charlotte I stop in the Madewell store.  I really wish we would get one here in Charleston.  This is the perfect easy summer dress at a great price.

EARTHFARE THAI CURRY CASHEWS

These nuts are amazing.  My new favorite snack.  You can find them in the bulk food section at Earthfare.  They are filled with so many spices and flavors.  The problem is I try to be healthy by eating nuts as a snack and then I devour way more than the serving size.  Oh well.

ENTRYWAY

I am smitten with this entryway.  I am looking to do something similar at our house with ottomans or poufs under our entry table.  Perfect styling.

Lastly,  as if you need another reason to shop, Piperlime is having their annual Summer sale with 50% Summer clothes, shoes, and accessories!  There are some amazing deals.  Plus today is Tuesday which means you get an additional 10 % off with the code TUESDAYS

GAP FLOPPY SUN HAT
Now that the weather has been warm here we have been spending alot of time outdoors and at the beach. I think a sun hat looks so chic. I picture this with my black strapless one piece. It is a steal from The Gap of all places!


NEAR EAST TABOULE SALAD
This is my latest lunch obsession. I make a batch at the beginning of the week and then eat it all week long for lunch. I usually serve it with hummus, pita chips, and sauteed kale. All you have to do is add hot water to the mix and let it sit for 30 mins. I always add fresh lemon juice, olive oil, chopped tomato, onion, and fresh mint to mine. This salad is so good!



INFLUENCE BY MARY KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN
I just got this book and love it. It is filled with interviews with so many great people like DVF, Lauren Hutton and MK and Ashley. It is gorgeous coffee table book.


TIBI IKAT SHORTS
I heart these shorts. I only own plain jean shorts and I am looking to spice up my shorts wardrobe this summer. Would you believe I never owned a pair of shorts til after I had Sterling! I never thought I was a shorts type of girl. But now I love them. I think this Tibi pair is perfect because they would be cute for running errands with a white tee or dressed up with a blouse and heels!
TIBI LAYLA IKAT SHORTS


SABINE NECKLACE
I have really been into statement necklaces lately. I love this one and it is only $24! The white would go with everything!

Thank you all for the great time out suggestions! I truly value everyone’s opinions and so appreciate all the advice. I will let you know how it goes! Here are my latest Obsessions this week!

CHARLES ALBERT AGATE RING
I am pretty smitten with this ring. I am drawn to the pink because hello, I love me some pink but I am thinking I would probably wear the nude version more often.




TUFTED HEADBOARDS PLUS AMAZING WALLPAPER
This might quite possibly the perfect bedroom combo in my humble opinion. I love the idea of just wallpapering the one wall behind the bed. I am still lusting after a tufted headboard for our bedroom.





IMAGES VIA DECORPAD AND PINTEREST
TOM’S BALLET FLATS
I have to admit I am not a huge fan of regular Tom’s. When I see other people wearing them I think they look cute but on me they just look plain stupid. I am however very excited about the new line of Tom’s Ballet Flats coming out this Spring. Since I am almost 5’10 I live in ballet flats. I have my eye on the leopard pair!



ESSIE PINK PARKA
I am 100 percent on board with the neon trend this summer. I can’t wait to paint my nails this gorgeous Hot Pink shade by Essie!


BANANA REPUBLIC MOD PRINT PINTUCK SHELL
In keeping with my hot pink love affair I picked up this Banana Republic Blouse last week. I love that they send you rewards and coupons all the time. I got this baby for practically nothing. Right now they are having 30 percent off everything with code NEWYOU. I think this top will be super cute with my skinny jeans and a cardigan til summer hits and then I will wear it with shorts.


It looks cute with my workout pants, right?


It also comes in a black version that is equally as cute.

Happy Tuesday! I just woke up from the weirdest nightmare and it is still weirding me out. Lets just say it involved zombies, plane crashes and ex-boyfriends. So strange!! Anywho here are my obsessions this week!

SHOSHANNA MAXI DRESS

I love, love, love the ikat print and the 70’s style of this dress. I really adore a maxi dress, I would happily have a whole closet full of them. They are staples for me during the summer!

THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS

I watched a marathon of this show on Saturday. Loves it. Matt is totally Josh, the slightly mean one that has to work all the time and I am more like Brent taking care of the house and farm but happy. Is it weird I just compared us to a gay couple? If you haven’t seen this show it airs on Planet Green, watch it!


MUMM NAPA BRUT ROSE
This is a combo between rose and champagne and it is delightful! So light and refreshing but not sweet. I love sparkling wine and champagne this time of the year when it is so hot out! Best part is it is on sale right now at Harris Teeter for $14.99!


CLE DE PEAU CONCEALER
This is the best concealer I have ever used hands down. I have the worst dark under eye circles that became even darker after I had my son and this stuff really conceals them. It is not cheap, about $70 but it works great and the tube lasts forever. I had been out for awhile and my mom just gave me a new tube and I forgot how much I love it!

KATIE LEE JOEL’S THE COMFORT TABLE

I have talked about this cookbook before, but it is honestly one of my favorite cookbooks. Every recipe I have made out of it has been delicious! I use this cookbook so much that the pages are falling out. Yesterday I made her pineapple zucchini bread and it was scrumptious. I am thinking about making her Sheppard’s pie later this week.

    Come and enter my New Giveaway from Serena & Lily! You will love it!

  19. Good afternoon from Tokyo!

    Katie Lee's cookbook is great, isn't it? It's one of the few we managed to smuggle away before our move to Tokyo. I figured anything endorsed by Paula Deen had to be solid!

    As for the Beekman Boys…I wish I could watch them here! I've heard nothing but praise in regards to them. Maybe our next move will give us the opportunity.

    Have a wonderful week ahead with your lovely family.

    Warmly,

    Elizabeth
