We are back from Harbour Island after yet another amazing trip! It’s easily my second favorite place in the world (following Charleston). Here are some photos…

 

A few of the things I packed. My new rose mirrored sunglasses, a pom pom basket, a few favorite Marysia bikinis, white fringe sandals, a pair of leopard sandals, my favorite body sunscreen, the new round studded sandals, and my favorite denim shorts!

Favorite beach. We stayed at The Dunmore again. Can’t say enough about that place and the people.

Beach walk. Have you guys checked out Le Specs sunglasses? All are around $60 – $80 and so fun!

On Saturday Harbour Island celebrated the life of Ma Ruby. There was a beautiful procession through the island led by a band and family and friends. Very moving to see.

Sometimes I find things that I know will sell out immediately. Like that raw edge white dress (shown in both the front and the back views). It’s ridiculously adorable, easy to wear/flattering, and a great price.

white top, stripe shirtdress, blue dress, lace dress

 

I love that white top at the bottom – it has a front crop that looks like you did the tuck! Perfect. And Free People’s take on the lace off shoulder dress is quite nice. I’ve been seeing the black studded sandals on a lot of fashion gals lately – they’re pretty cute! Love them in nude, too.

So excited to share this new bloom print dress from my friend Lindsey Carter’s Troubadour Spring collection! She makes some of my most favorites dresses in my closet!

The color and fit of this dress are my favorite.

Soooo pretty much everything that Lilly is wearing in today’s post I want. Starting with that little side bow tank top from Old Navy!

And her pretty colored water bottle. It even matches :)

And this Old Navy striped scarf is something I’ll definitely be borrowing this spring!

And aren’t these Old Navy fringe booties adorable? All the mini me fashion!

Plenty of pretty things for women at Old Navy right now, too – I predict everyone will have this dress this summer. And this embroidered swing blouse is super cute as well!

In honor of embarking on our Harbour Island trip tomorrow I thought I’d put together a little dream packing list :)

 

Desktop140-001

 

yellow top, necklace, pink top, raffia sandals, lip pouch, stripe romper,

pink sandals, stripe dress, swim clutch, cherry earrings,  pink dress, tote,

slip dress, strapless dress, gingham top, jelly sandals, water bottle, blue coverup,

white poncho, watermelon flats, multi dress, tassel earrings, print tank

 

I’m so sad I didn’t find the navy jelly sandals sooner, they’re pretty much the best pool slides! But I am bringing that blue coverup (but in white). And isn’t that strapless dress gorgeous? Remember the shirtdress version I shared last week? Hard to decide which I like better! Oh, and the cherry earrings! NEED the cherry earrings. Love all the statement earrings  happening this year!

 

And I truthfully don’t think I can resist adding to my Lizzie Fortunato collection… That swimmers clutch might be my favorite of their’s yet!

The majority of my most favorite home tours are all designed around a clean palette with bright colors layered in. This is how I’ve approached my home, as well. So I was naturally drawn in when I saw Lizzie Mettler’s L.A. home tour on One Kings Lane’s blog.

You all know I’m very well versed in One Kings Lane’s site :) I’m on there most every day not only checking out their latest pop up sales, but also surfing their extensive product categories. They are a favorite source for most anything home related – especially the art! Here are a few of my favorite colorful finds to add some brightness to any home.

umbrella print, blue chair, blue table lamp,

acrylic bar cart, blue hue’d books, overdyed rug,

pink ottoman, hydrangea vase, citrus velvet pillow,

pink chair, printed bench, fez bowls, matisse blue nude

 

I think that velvet citrus pillow outlined in green might be my favorite pillow I’ve seen in a long time. It’s the prettiest shade! And the orange umbrella print is the perfect color combination. The photographer, Natalie Obradovich, has some of THE BEST beach art I have ever seen thanks to her eye for color. I just ordered this print! And one of the easiest ways to add color to a kitchen is with these fun and colorful bowls – they are my family’s favorites for cereal and ice cream!
