Good morning! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. We spent our’s in Charleston and it was really great. We had Easter brunch at my in law’s home and spent the afternoon and evening at our neighbor’s. Kids are off school again today!

In honor of Earth Day today, I’m featuring my favorite sustainable fashion brand, Everlane! Everlane approaches the business of fashion in an ethical and transparent way. They make clothes to last. And their basics are sophisticated. Last year Everlane announced an initiative to remove all virgin plastics from it’s manufacturing by 2021. Are they perfect? Nope. But it’s important to celebrate and support the brands that are making conscious efforts. And it’s easy to support them when they look this good :)

Good morning! This week I ordered some pieces from Amazon that I’ve been eyeing, and today I’m sharing my 5 favorites! Everything is straight out of the box so there are lots of wrinkles! 

This belted chambray shirtdress is the perfect classic piece to have for spring! It’s only $34 (thanks Daily Ritual, I love you!) and also comes in a casual faded black color, too!

Now how cute is this twist front top??!! Perfect with shorts, workout leggings, pajama pants… And it’s only $15! Btw, I’m wearing these jeans

If you’re looking for a cute and simple swing dress, then here you go! This black knit dress is only $18 (again, thanks Daily Ritual!), and is SO comfortable. Check out all the color options it comes in here.

This black hoodie is actually my favorite piece in this whole delivery! It’s SO soft, has a slightly swingy shape, and is only $28. Plus it comes in more pretty colors, too! I like the thin sweatshirt material for spring. And again, I’m wearing these jeans

I LOVE the color of this off the shoulder dress. It has a flattering shape, is really comfortable, and the swingy skirt is fun! And here are 12 more cute Amazon finds!

With the change of seasons comes a change of beauty regime, because what works in winter doesn’t always work in summer. Today I’m sharing some of my most favorite products available at Nordstrom!

I’m a “give me all the serums and masks” kind of girl so I have tried A Lot of different brands and products. These 4 in the photo below are AMAZING! I use Kypris antioxidant dew as a skin brightening moisturizer. The Tata Harper eye serum smooths fine lines. The Tata Harper hydrating floral essence refines pores for smoother skin. And the Herbivore Botanicals blue clay spot treatment mask is great for blemishes!

The photo below shows some of my favorite hair products: My friend Liz got me hooked on Living Proof products – I especially love the Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (leaves my hair feeling so clean and healthy), and their dry shampoo! This line of products just smells SO good, too. I like to keep a couple of shampoo options in my shower, and another one I love is R+Co perfect hair day shampoo and conditioner. Once a week I use the Olaplex hair perfecter treatment, I swear I can see such a difference in the look and feel of my hair after using it. By the way, my hair stylist said that I only need to keep it on for 2-3 minutes despite what the bottle says! Lastly, the R+Co pomade dart stick is perfect for all those pesky flyaways. I use it on the short baby hairs around my part and it doesn’t leave my hair feeling greasy!

While we’re talking about hair, I LOVE my Drybar hair dryer so much that I bought one to keep at Coral House, too. And I always dry my hair with a big round hairbrush to straighten and smooth – otherwise my hair is kinda kinky and wavy and not in a cute beachy way…

Lipsticks! My favorite make up product. These three below are killer – the MAC matte lipstick is super saturated, the Ilia tinted lip conditioner is full of moisture and the color builds nicely, and the RMS lipstick is my favorite clean beauty brand!

In fact, RMS Beauty is my favorite make up brand. I use a TON of their products and recommend them all. Two of my most favorite things that I recommend to everyone is the RMS raw coconut cream – it’s the best make up remover, and I also absolutely love the RMS un-coverup! It’s the best concealer because it’s light and dewy and makes me feel younger.

Speaking of youth, sunscreen is pretty much the best defense we have and I have a lot of different sunscreens I use and love. Two at Nordstrom are the Supergoop Mist (great for pool and beach days), and the tinted ColorScience sunscreen powder – it brushes right on and looks like makeup! So easy to use while you’re out and about.

And my best beauty trick of all is drinking lots of water!! I keep S’well bottles handy so that I am always reminded to stay hydrated throughout the day!

mac matte lipstick, rms un-coverup concealer, rms un-powder

Last week we celebrated the 1 year anniversary of my friend Julia’s Gal Meets Glam collection and the night was so special and so gorgeous!! Every single detail. I’m so proud of Julia and Thomas for all of their hard work! 

The party was designed by Tara Guerard at 86 Cannon, it was the perfect back drop! Catered by Cru Catering with live music by Calvin Taylor (fun fact – he play at Josh and my’s rehearsal dinner 12 years ago), every detail was perfect!

I wore “The Chassity” dress, and am so touched that Julia named it for me! I love it so much!
