It doesn’t happen often, but man this last week I’ve been struggling here on the blog. Here’s hoping I come back refreshed from the weekend. On a good note, I had a nice week in my “real life”. On the momma front, Lilly had ballet camp complete with a little recital yesterday. She loved it (and I loved the extra time!).

Oh, and I also got a pink fireplace :)

Enjoy the weekend!

Because shouldn’t every Thursday begin with a little browsing?…

I just got lost in Blueprint Modern’s lookbook.

I actually think they emailed me a few weeks ago. I didn’t pay much attention then… my bad.


My friend Christine just opened up an art shop, Wink of Pink. All sorts of beautiful and girly pretty over there.

Just a little peek, you really must go see the rest. Congrats, Christine :)

I recently popped into Scout & Catalog’s shop to see what was new. Loving this scarf and gradient silk tank.

And I’ll wrap this up with this gorgeous dress that’s on it’s way to me. It pretty much looks like the perfect summer dress – forgiving and flattering, lightweight, and with cute details. I got the yellow

Why not have a pretty camera? Is it ridiculous that I feel the urge to swap out my camera strap for something way more fun? It’s not like I’m a photographer or anything.

I just like pretty things. And naturally I really, really want the sequin one, but maybe in the copper color.
Maybe then if I bring my camera on our upcoming family trip I won’t look like such a tourist (you know I won’t bring it, I’m a sucker for my iPhone). Which reminds me to ask… We’re heading to Newport Beach, CA. I’ve never been and would love some “must visit” local recommendations! Especially your kid friendly ones.

Golly, did y’all see Roxy’s latest Society Social Manifesto Magalog?? Full of prettiness.

I’m spying all sorts of lovely things I’d like to put in my house (and you all know how much I love my Society Social Draper Table). Incredible job, Roxy. I mean, really incredible.

It was a great weekend around here. I’m feeling a little scatter brained so I thought I’d share some recent favorites that I’ve been eyeing… Here ya go.

You all know I’m a fan of Lulie’s work (see my In Her Studio Q&A here). She recently finished up a bunch of these lil guys. How cute are they?

I’ve been looking around for fabric for our banquette cushion in our kitchen. There are so many pretty fabrics that it’s really hard to choose one and run with it. Over the weekend I found this fun print by Lulu DK. It’s a possibility for sure. Love all these color ways.

How cute is this little white dress. Love the pop of sequin along the bottom, and it’s only $99. Not bad at all and probably needs to be in my closet.

I’m dying to do this ivy screen wall on one end of our porch. Want to whip this up for us, Josh?
And how great is this shot that local photographer Alice Keeney got of Lulumon’s opening celebration last week here in Charleston?! They shut down part of King Street for a 500 person yoga class. So fun.

Some people really live life. Take Olivia Rae. I don’t know this girl, but I’ve seen her blog. And every single time I visit her space I leave feeling happy and inspired. She’s always outdoors, out and about, with family and friends, enjoying food, conversation, the night air, under twinkling lights. I live my life too, I think I live it well, but man I need to get outside more. I’m a sucker for going out to restaurants, attending events, and shopping, but I could use some more nature in my life. You know what I mean?

Well a few weeks ago a mutual friend of ours commented on the most enchanting photo of Olivia, and I have no idea why but it just so happened to pop up in my newsfeed. So I emailed Olivia to get the scoop on this sweet photo in hopes of sharing it here on the blog. Turns out, it was just a random Sunday morning. Nothing special, just she and her boyfriend Blake rowing around the Lilypads at Cypress Gardens (near Charleston, where scenes from The Notebook were filmed) and eating sticky buns from Wildflour Pastry. Maybe I should start bringing a photographer friend around with me? What sweet memories her friend Susan captured…

I’m making it a mission to get outside this weekend. Maybe we’ll take out the kayak for Father’s Day. Enjoy the weekend, Everyone!
