High Hampton Inn Review

I’ve been visiting Highlands, NC for years but have never stayed anywhere in the neighboring town of Cashiers (just a few miles down the road). But when I heard how the company that recently acquired High Hampton Inn brought in the team behind Blackberry farm to help with renovations and reimagine the resort, I knew I had to add this spot to the top of our list. Although I’ve never personally been…

10 Dresses Perfect for Summertime

Y’all, I feel so lucky that the high today in High Hampton is 85 degrees. I know that’s hot to a lot of you, but compared to Dallas, it feels like heaven. The high in Dallas today is 100! I’ve lived in Texas long enough to know that summers are hot. The best thing you can do is stay inside or find a pool. Whenever I’m dressing during the summer, the…

4th of July Outfit Inspiration

The 4th of July is almost here and I, for one, am really looking forward to it this year. For some reason, this has always been one of my favorite holidays to celebrate. It’s an excuse to make delicious food and have a relaxed hangout with family and friends. This year, we will be in Aspen on July 4th, so I’m also excited to see what kind of activities they…

My Favorite Maternity Denim

I’ve mentioned in some recent blog posts how I don’t shop a lot of maternity clothes when I’m pregnant. Typically, I try to stick to non-maternity clothing that will work with a bump. But there are some pieces of clothing, like denim, that I just have to go maternity on. I recently broke down and bought my first pair of maternity shorts and honestly like them WAY more than I thought…

Summer Water Toys for Kids

If you’ve followed me on Instagram over the past few months, you’ve probably seen that Duncan and I have made some upgrades to our backyard. Nothing super crazy, but our goal was to make it a more enjoyable place to spend time together as a family. Now that we have a backyard we love, it’s been so much fun watching Four play in the space with some of the water…

My Summer Table for 4th of July

If there’s one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love putting together a festive table. Whether it’s my holiday tablescape or the one I recently put together for spring, I feel like the creativity just flows when I’m putting together a table for hosting. We haven’t quite finalized our July 4th plans yet, but I’m hoping to host a small get-together with BBQ or burgers. I’ve been…

The Bump-Friendly Dress All Mamas Need

Ever since getting pregnant, I feel like I’m constantly on the hunt for non-maternity dresses that I can wear with a bump. I don’t have anything against maternity clothes, but I just haven’t ever found them to be quite my style so I typically stick with regular clothes during pregnancy. This dress from Revolve is currently heavy in my summer rotation. It is seriously perfect with my bump and SO comfy.…

Summer Sandals for Any Occasion

If I’m not in sneakers right now, I am absolutely in a pair of sandals. This is true any time during the summer, but especially now that I’m pregnant. I just need to be in COMFORTABLE shoes — bonus points if they’re cute too! This summer, I’ve found some awesome sandals, both flats and heeled, that could be paired with shorts, dresses, and jeans. I’m mostly sticking with flats these…
