How chic are those aqua drapery rods? Loving this pop of yellow for the home (always a cheery shade)! I want to sprinkle these little tables in every room. This book would make an amazing gift for all your stylish, dog loving friends. And you all know that I might be the biggest fan of this lighting collection.

LOVE a short week. I hope you all had a nice long weekend with family and friends. I’m kicking off this week with 5 things :)


Boho Style:



I love an eclectic home. And I love finding new ideas to make a space feel fresh or unique. And this boho style feature was so good and inspiring!! How cute is that tiny access door?!


Set It Up:



I finally sat down and watched Set it Up this past weekend and it was SUCH a cute movie. Total romantic comedy with a predictable ending, the best kind!





One of the coolest things to come from social media is the use of hashtags. Brands know it too, and I love to see favorite customer hashtag round ups on their sites. Serena & Lily’s hashtag round up is so good – its fun to see how like-minded people use their products (because I basically love them all).


Native Deodorant:



I ordered a sample pack of Native deodorant (I know I told you all about that but I can’t remember if that was just on insta stories or here, too) and am a total convert! It’s a safe brand, paraben and aluminum free, and it works really well (obviously, or I wouldn’t like it lol…). I’m especially obsessed with the cucumber & mint scent. Like, I actually sniff my armpits sometimes because it smells so good. That’s really embarrassing to say.


Budget Buy Dress:



This flattering ruffle wrap dress is under $50 and comes in 4 pretty prints!

A little late by like two weeks but here is a recap of our latest Harbour Island trip!


This dutch door at Coral House is one of my most favorite features of the house. It opens up to Bay St and I love having it open and listening to the sounds of the island.



Night out with Josh, thanks for the picture Lilly!



I’m wearing a Bell Collection dress (one of my favorite summer brands), these woven sandals, and this half moon clutch.



Island mascot popping by to say hi.



Cute little corner in one of the downstairs bedrooms. The painting is by Karin Olah (check out her pieces here), the bedding is from Biscuit.



Feeling happy to be in my favorite place. This was from the first day of our trip. Wearing a Bell dress and these super cute sandals.



If I liked yoga this is how I would want to do it. Their rap music (gansta’s paradise) was a nice touch.



The kids took a few days of sailing lessons while we were there and they loved it!! What a fun experience.



Fresh squeezed orange juice from the Sweet Spot!



Shopping at Miss Alice’s! I’m wearing this dress and this stripe purse.



Southern Soul BBQ from Georgia had a pop up dinner on the island and it was so much fun! I’m wearing this pink palm dress!



Little nook by the pool and our new woodard iron chaises! Obsessed! Our pink and white stripe umbrellas are here on Amazon!



Saltwater cowboys.



Island shopping at Shine. This is one of my favorite spots to stop in and see what’s new.



I custom ordered this tote from Miss Alice on the island for Coral House because it just felt right. I’m wearing this black bikini and this blue print pareo.



Happy girl.



Happy boy on the beach.



Perfect dinner set up at The Dunmore.



My friend Wiggy has the most gorgeous island inspired clothing collection and this new dress is one of my favorite things to wear! Also this Susan Alexandra jeweled bag!



Trying to play it cool with hooligans at cocktail hour.



Waiting on us to go get donuts. Because vacation.



Run Lilly run.



I love this place. So. Much. It’s truly the most beautiful place I’ve ever been and makes my heart sing. Similar stripe tote right here!



We take this picture every time! Love it. I’m wearing this swimsuit.



Can’t wait to get back soon! Check out Coral House right here :)
