Summer Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

With summer officially kicking off tomorrow (#YAY!), I’ve been feeling so refreshed when it comes to fashion. You can probably tell from my Instagram, but it’s HOT in Dallas and summer style is in full swing. But instead of going out and buying all the things this summer, I’m trying really hard to be more mindful when it comes to consuming. Maybe it’s just me going through a phase, but…

Here’s What’s Really Going On (June 2018)

I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been feeling a bit aimless lately. Y’all know I go through ups and downs with this whole blogging thing – where sometimes I’m super into it and inspired and then other times not so much. But that’s not really how I’m feeling now. This is different. I’m going to try my best to explain it to you – mostly because I need to get it out of my brain and into writing but also because I want to be honest with y’all.

5 Things Keeping My Skin Hydrated This Summer

I’ll be honest that I’ve been blessed with pretty regular skin. I don’t get a ton of breakouts and it honestly doesn’t give me TOO much of an issue, but y’all know I’ve been trying to take better care of it. Honestly, it not being too much of a problem area has made me lazy with it over the years – and I thought it was time to change that.…


How My Trip with MacKenzie-Childs Inspired My Life

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of flying out to Aurora, New York. While this tiny town in rural NY might seem random, it’s actually home to a brand I was SO freaking honored to learn more about, MacKenzie-Childs. If you grew up in a home with an interior-loving mama like myself, you’ve likely heard of the brand – or at least seen their fun, unique designs on social media.


How To Be A Good Roommate

When the word “roommate” comes to mind, a positive association doesn’t always come with it. And it’s totally understandable why. Many of us have had at least one not-so-great experience with a roommate – I’ve for sure had my fair share of not-so-ideal roommates experiences as well. Luckily, I’m in a great situation now, but I’ve definitely learned a lot along the way.


Summer Essentials Under $200

It’s feeling like summer, HOT HOT HOT! And I’m so excited for all the summer clothes. Wearing bright colors and fun patterns is my favorite for this time of year. To celebrate the start of the new season, I rounded up some essentials you will need to fight off this heat. These are also great to pack for any vacation you might have coming up! I’m currently trying to find…


The Shoes I Literally Can’t Stop Wearing This Season

I always love when there’s a trend that comes around that I don’t actually notice I’m addicted to until I realize I’m wearing it pretty much daily. It happened a couple years ago with cropped jeans, and then with everything high-waisted. Now I’m noticing it with a certain pair of shoes: slides. They’re literally on my feet more than any other shoe and it’s clear that I’m obsessed. Anyone else?!…

How to Style a Coffee Table

If you’ve been following along on Insta stories recently, y’all know that I had to delay writing this blog post because I couldn’t decide how I wanted to style my coffee table (classic Brighton!). So yeah, I get it might seem kinda funny that I’m here giving you advice on coffee table styling but there’s always trial and error with interior design stuff. And I don’t want to be over here pretending I’m perfect and that it’s always a smooth and easy process (especially since I change my mind about what I like EVERY TWO SECONDS).


Memorial Day Sales!

Happy Memorial weekend! I hope y’all are enjoying the weekend with family, friends, and a good cocktail. I’m spending my weekend in 30A (again!). I love being at the beach and soaking up some sun. I wanted to pop on here to tell you all about all the good sales this weekend. I’ve rounded up items I’ve worn and some that are in my cart! This peplum tee is $17…
