Who else is in the mood for all the summer vibes? And not just in the closet!



rattan dining chair, blue palm lantern, stacked shapes art,

rattan elephant lamp, bathers blue acrylic box art,

sling chair with tassels, pink stripe rug, red stripe throwbed,

blue umbrella, wicker wrapped tea glasses, beach art


That wicker dining chair is so chic. And I can’t say enough things about hedgehouse throw beds. They’re the best.

That “watch me neigh neigh” mug is hilarious. And I just love those pocket girlfriends! The “press for champagne” key chain is so fun.

Okay this is a major photo dump of my week on Harbour Island last week! I had so much fun – can’t wait to get back there soon with the kids. I was there for a week, the first half was with Josh and the second half some girlfriends met me. Here are some pics!


My favorite island dress from Blue Rooster with my new bird bag.



Josh and me on our first night there! My dress is Roller Rabbit.



Little view into Coral House.



And my most favorite view of all.



Our Mirth tile patterned floors in one of the bedrooms. I’m wearing this white dress and these metallic slides.



Beach scenes…



This white swimsuit is one of my favorite things! It just goes so well with everything and is surprisingly not see through!



Upstairs bedroom with cute Biscuit Home bedding. I love this spot. It’s across the way from our bedroom.



Vacation calories don’t count, right? I’m wearing this blue dress.



Wearing all the color at sunset drinks so Josh didn’t lose me. This rainbow dress, this beaded bag, and these blue espadrilles (obsessed!).



Island shopping at Shine.



I like big towels and I cannot lie. This Solid & Striped swimsuit is sold out BUT this one is nearly identical.



The last 4 nights of the trip my high school girl friends Hannah and Jeanette stayed with me. When they arrived we promptly went to the Dunmore for a drink and a walk on the beach.



We seriously had the BEST time. I miss those girls in my daily life so much.



Made some new friends! I’m wearing this Marysia swimsuit. It might be my favorite cut she does.



We took a boat ride over to see the pigs. #pigwhisperer



A gorgeous dinner at the restaurants a few doors down from Coral House, The Landing.



We took a lot of self timer pre night out pictures on our front porch.



Island exploring. I’m wearing a Mirth dress and this stripe bag.



Island exploring.






A new favorite dress I picked up at The Dunmore shop.



My most favorite tile of all in another bedroom at Coral House. Wearing these raffia sandals.



Goofing off at Dakes shoppe.



One of the nights out at Daddy D’s. Karaoke night I think, so much fun.



Lots of time spent around the pool.



Playing Dominos and singing throwback music, my most favorite night.



And then just as I was leaving Gray and her husband flew in to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. We overlapped for a few hours! My dress is Doen.



As always, I’d love you to check out Coral House right here :) We are on instagram, too!

Sharing a little life lately today! Let’s start with Highwater Fest weekend. It’s an annual music festival here in Charleston right on the water and it’s SO much fun. Saturday Josh and I went. I got to hear Brandi Carlisle sing The Story, which is one of my favorite songs!



Above, I’m wearing this Doen dress. On Sunday Gray and I went together. Such a fun day.



We met up with Jillian and Jackie, too.



Like, so much fun. My dress is Nimo with Love. Also my Carrie Forbes sandals are here, and pink fan earrings.



Some of the art in our powder room.



Beach days with the kids have begun. So happy that the warm weather is here. Btw I got Fletcher these waterproof birkenstocks and they’re pretty much the best sandals ever. Ended up ordering a pink pair for Lilly, too!



Pretty scenes in the neighborhood!



Last weekend Lilly, Fletch and I ventured up to the Great Wolf Lodge to celebrate a friend’s birthday. They were pretty much on cloud nine the entire time.



How cute is this August Morgan dress?



I love the floral detail on the collar. I’m also wearing these blue espadrilles and this stripe raffia tote!



Kids on a boat equals happiness. Our neighbors have a boat and were so sweet to take us out for a sunset cruise.



At Julia’s Gal Meets Glam dress collection party at her house. So proud of her for making the cutest dresses!!



Oh heeeeey!! Wearing these blue espadrilles again with this stripe tote.



This right here is pretty much my favorite bag right now. It is SO fun to carry around. Also wearing this dress and these leather lace up sandals.



And my second favorite bag… Packing this woven bird bag along for Harbour Island this weekend! You guys, I know it’s ridiculous but I can’t help myself. I want to be still be carrying this around Harbour Island when I’m 85 years old.



And ending with another favorite outfit. This Ulla Johnson dress I picked up from Hampden is so comfortable. Wearing it with these metallic ruffle slides sandals (now 30% off!), these metal earrings, and this Nannacay bag.

Good morning! I’m excited to share some books I’ve recently read that I’ve loved!

I LOVED Southernmost. It’s the spin off to Sarah’s first book, Southern Solstice which I equally loved. And I got an advance copy of All We Ever Wanted, and it might just be Emily Giffin’s best book yet. And I cheated a little, The Couple Next Door and Party Girls Dies In Pearls are next on my reading list – but I’ve heard they’re fantastic – I’m so excited to read them.


I’m always looking for new recommendations so please share any great books you’ve read recently!

I’m so excited to partner with Framebridge for Mother’s Day! They’ve been my go to for framing for the last 2 years! They’re website is really easy and fun to use (not to mention gorgeous!). And their custom framing is beautiful and high quality! With Mother’s Day less than a month away Framebridge is the perfect destination for special, one of a kind gifts.



Some of my most favorite art pieces in our home were made by my kids. These pieces deserve to be framed! And it makes Lilly and Fletcher so happy to see their art hung on the wall. Framed kids art makes for the best Mother’s Day gift, don’t you think?



There are two easy ways you can frame – 1) Upload a photo from your computer, phone, or instagram feed for Framebridge to custom frame or 2) Mail in your original art and objects for Framebridge to custom frame. They provide free, prepaid packaging!



Framebridge has a lot of handmade frame options to choose from. Just upload an image of the piece you want framed and you can see it in all of the frame options!



I actually find this tool kind of addicting. I love plugging in different pictures and seeing how they look in different frames. I love how this abstract by Fletcher turned out in the Marin Frame.



We spruced up our library area with some new pieces, too.



Lilly made this self portrait with her pastels and I framed it in the Stella frame using a personalized mat saying “Lilly (age 8)”. Loving this new personalizing feature they’re offering.



And this family photo was printed from my instagram feed! It’s actually of a Mother’s Day past and is so special to me. It’s in the Henry frame.



Live life. Frame more. – Framebridge’s motto, and I like it. A few dates to note – Mother’s Day mail in orders deadline is April 22, the digital upload deadline is May 6th! You can start framing right here!
