Thoughts For Friday

May 12, 2017

TGIF Friends!!

I have been dreaming of a tropical vacation lately.  I finally uploaded all my pictures from St John and it made me realize I want to get another tropical trip on the books end of this year or beginning of next year.

Frances Moon looking super adorable before school. A few of you asked about her dress and it is Old Navy- looks like it is sold out online though.

Outfit planning

Blouse (under $35) | Jean Shorts | Necklace | Wedges | Clutch

Thursday night I tried out a new restaurant on James Island, the Edison.  I was not overly impressed but it wasn’t horrible either.  I had the truffled pear salad and Ahi Tuna tostada.  I liked the salad better than the tostada but both were lacking in flavor.

What I wore:

I am wearing a size 1 in the dress.  It is the most comfortable dress ever.

Dress | Earrings


I made the most delish Salted PB Energy balls from Oh She Glows.  They are amazing.


I love having my parents in town so I can enjoy this view for Happy Hour.

After my blue and white post this was the one dress I knew I needed.  The dress runs TTS, I am wearing a size small.

Had dinner at Screen Door again with my parents this time.  It is becoming a regular haunt for us.  Everything was so good.  The fried green tomatoes and fried brussels sprouts are a must!

Next Saturday I am helping to host a charity event for MUSC Children’s hospital with Beckett Boutique.  All proceeds go to MUSC children’s hospital.  There will be drinks and a runway show with several local bloggers featuring looks from Beckett Boutique.  Tickets are $35 and you can purchase HERE

This off shoulder blouse is now 40% off.

Blouse | Jeans (under $100)

Tried this new rose from Whole Foods it was really good.

Have a great weekend!!

    We tried Edison recently too. I like giving places a second chance but I don’t know if I can stomach this place again. The food was below par and overpriced and the service was bad. Such a shame seeing as how it is one of the closer, non-bar food restaurants in the area.
