A Day at the Mall

Shopping for fall is one of my favorite times to shop–I love picking out transitional pieces that you can wear alone on warm fall days (of which we have many in Alabama) and add layers to on crisp, cool evenings.

The same can be said for decorating your home–most of the fall season in the South tends to be on the warm side so I don’t like to go overboard with the decor and prefer to just add touches of coziness to our home.

The Long Weekend


I really wish three day weekends were a monthly thing–something about having that extra day off is just good for the soul!

I kicked off the weekend by celebrating the launch of Chanel’s new fragrance, Gabrielle, at Belk in Parkway Place. Being surrounded by delicious treats, beautiful makeup, gorgeous perfume and new friends (the wonderful photographer, Kylie of Lilac & Lemon ) is a pretty great way to start the day!

Hello Sailor

I love me a nautical look….I can’t help it. I am pretty sure I have three pairs of pants of just like these. I like what I like!

This particular pair of pants was the result of stalking JCrew and waiting for a sale. Finally, I scored–and got these for around $30! Time and money well spent! Not sure if my husband would agree with that statement but let’s not digress.

Our Weekend

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend! We really did…went by quickly as they always do, but we got a lot done and had a lot of fun too 🙂

We started Friday off by hitting up the pool after the gym…I love that we have a pool in the neighborhood which means I get to enjoy it but don’t have to maintain it lol

Into the Wild

So our Memorial Day Weekend was kind of a bust. We planned on going to Nashville for the big flea market and some shopping but the forecast kept calling for severe storms. Kept going on and on about how bad this weather was going to be, and so we got spooked…and…would you believe it? DID NOT RAIN. Then we thought about going on Sunday, but by then my enthusiasm had waned so we thought we would just go over to Decatur and check out the hot air balloon show. Well, wouldn’t you know it…too windy for the balloons to fly. 

La La Land

Have you seen La La Land? I am so obsessed with it! I have the record, the DVD and am one step away from buying a poster for my bedroom–just kidding on that one, but seriously love this movie!

Emma Stone wears super twirly, gorgeous dresses and skirts throughout the film and I was totally thinking of that when I picked out this outfit!

Little White Dress

The Little White Dress. Summer’s answer to the LBD. Perfect for graduations and all the festivities that come with spring and summer!

I was lucky enough to wear this GORGEOUS white dress for the Anthropologie Spring Show and it is so perfect! Lined nicely which is so important when you’re picking out a white dress and super flattering. I went down a size from my usual which I think helps the fringe lay better.
