Ahhh Friday, so lovely to see you so quickly. Here’s to short weeks. We’re catching a Spoleto concert on the lawn at the Cistern tonight with some friends. Johnnyswim – ever heard of them? Also on tap for the weekend is a baby shower and a bowling birthday night. Man I love bowling. And I plan to spend a lot of time poolside in between.
I’m a big big big time fan of this Ted Baker wild horses cover up. It’s cute and fun, lightweight, flowy, and can take me straight to lunch after the beach/pool. I really like the matching bikini, too.

And that pom pom beach bag is on sale for just $12!! There is a blue as well as some stripe versions, too. Such a score. (Don’t forget to fill it with pretty stripe towels.)

That’s my “such a score” dork face. Have a happy and sunny weekend, Everyone!

Over porch drinks last night, I was laughing with my girlfriend, Krystine, over the topics of conversation we regularly have these days. I never would have thought I’d have such an interest in garden and landscaping, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to appreciate how fun and pretty garden decor really is. Really. All you youngin’s stop rolling your eyes at me (I’m not talking about gazing balls).

These spaces matter a lot when you spend a good portion of your days outdoors and enjoy entertaining. If you think your porch needs a lift I recommend checking out Anthropologie’s garden section. It’s a dream. I got both of these planters there and I’m in love with them.

This daisy dappled planter is freaking amazing. I want a million more of them. I think the laid back asparagus fern is really cool in there.

And I’m constantly filling this little herb pot with yard clippings.

Check out Anthropologie’s garden section. I also love this doormat, this hammock, and this birdhouse is like art! Thanks for making gardening cool, Anthro.

Following up on this post, I’m making real progress on spiffing up our master bed and will hopefully have something to share with you soon. In the meantime, have you been making steps on updating your bedding? There’s so much new pretty out there right now. Here are a few of my favorites that are perfect for updating or mixing in with what you have.

Biscuit Bedding. I mean, it doesn’t get much better than this. Really. See?

And who couldn’t use a little tassel action in your bedroom? (On your sheets y’all, get your minds out of the gutter.) Love the clean look of this fringe bedding.

Or this monet-esque rosemoor duvet. So romantical. I know that’s not a word.

I’m drawn to this cherry duvet every time I click over to Serena & Lily. I couldn’t handle it in my room, but definitely could in a guest room or on a little girl’s bed. Oh hey look, there’s that adorable tassel window panel, too.

And just as much as I love a chambray shirt, I also love this chambray bedding. Never ever ending mix and matching possibilities. I love how they broke up the set and used gingham sheets and toile shams.

I wanna crawl in.

Sunny, summer days call for easy clothes. I love this sleeveless chambray top and these polka dot shorts because they can both be worn with so many things in a lot of different ways (remember when I wore these shorts with floral?). I’m getting my moneys worth out of them, which is when I always know that I made a good investment. Last week I paired them with summer’s most versatile chambray for a night out downtown.

La Mer makes the most perfect summer watches. I could collect a bunch of these.

We stopped for a little show, too. Because why not?

You don’t take pictures in parking garages, too? Gray thought the lighting was cool. I dig it.

It was amazing. We ate, we drank, we swam, we beached, we bruised ribs on the slip & slide (alright I didn’t), we lounged, we conquered. God bless America and those who serve her.

Good night.

Happy Memorial Day, Everyone! I love a long holiday weekend. We’re spending it with family (just us, not extended) and a lot of friends. We’ll hit up the beach, dip in the pool, go for golf cart rides, and eat a lot. I’m betting a few cocktails will be thrown in there, too. Doesn’t that margarita look amazing? I could only drink one though, sugary sweet drinks give me a sour stomach.

Another holiday weekend plus?? All the sales. I mean, they’re everywhere and plentiful! Go out and support your local shops. I’m hoping to swing by Hampden Clothing, Gwynn’s, and II Brunettes. And don’t forget about all the crazy deals online, too. Here’s a round up for you with a few of my sale favorites.

Nordstrom’s half yearly sale“:

tibi dress (i have this in pink – so flattering), missoni wrap dressvalentino bow sandal

Asos – take 20% off with code “TAKE20”:

And remember this floral shift dress I blogged a few days ago? Even prettier in person. But it runs small, order up a size. Isn’t Gray a pretty model? :)

Shopbop has a lot of pretty sale additions:


Victoria’s Secret’s annual swim sale:

Especially loving this bikini.

Saks has an up to 40% off sale:

And these awesome shops are having sales too! Piperlime, Free People, J.Crew, Madewell, Les Nouvelle, Pretty Mommy.

Happy Weekend! I hope you all have a great weekend doing what you love best.
