Thoughts For Friday

Aug 4, 2017

TGIF Friends.  We have a pretty low key weekend and then Sterling and I are headed to Beaufort for a mommy son trip to visit some friends.  Any recs for breakfast or lunch?

I can’t believe school starts in less than two weeks and our pool days are coming to an end.  I have been loving the high waisted suit this Summer.

Bikini  Top | Bottoms | Sunglasses | Similar Hat

Frances Moon has been doing American Dolls Ballet Dance Camp all week.  It is quite possibly the cutest thing ever to see all the girls dressed up with their dolls.

I am loving this new make-up palette Beauty counter released this week.  I juts ordered one and can’t wait to try it!

Ocean and Pacific Set

A few recent outfits this week:

Tee Shirt | Earrings | White jeans

My white jeans are a recent purchase and I love them.  They sit higher on your waist and are not see through at all.

Tie Blouse

I am wearing a size 4 runs TTS.


I just started reading Jane Green’s new book, Summer Sisters.  I am loving it so far.  An easy and entertaining Summer read.

I also just bought this cookbook, Naturally Nourished and adore it.  If you love salads, grains and healthy eats this book has some beautiful recipes.


Sterling and I tried out a new breakfast spot on James Island this week called Hen and Goat.  The atmosphere is so cute!

Everything we had was delicious I can’t wait to go back for lunch!

I just started watching Friends from College on Netflix and it is so funny!  I am still powering through Game of Thrones and loving it but I wanted something light hearted to watch too.

My friend and artist Kate Mullin is having an art show here next Wednesday night,  August 9th.  Her artwork is incredible.  The art show is free and at The Cigar Factory from 7-9!  Locals you should definitely check it out!

This embroidered dress is now on sale.  I wore mine frequently this Summer!

Embroidered Dress

New lipstick shade I am loving- Geranium.  I wore it on my instastories videos a few days ago and had some requests about it.  It goes on kind of sheer and is too heavy or matte.

Albeit Lipstick

Have a great weekend!

    Loving J CREW tops right now. They work really well being pregnant. I picked up the rainbow one you had on recently and I love it. I tried CHOPT Salad in Wilmington yesterday and you seriously need to try it when you are in Charlotte next, if you haven’t already. It was so good! I got the Chicken Tinga. Happy Friday!

    Hi Natalie,
    I noticed that you haven’t put up a listing of other blogs you read like your old site had. I was just wondering if there is anywhere on your site I could find them. After reading your page I would go through several of the other blogs you recommended and there were a couple on there that I can’t remember the name. Thanks so much! I love your content!
