Happy Thursday! Today I’m sharing some favorite home finds, including my new rug from the new Mark Sikes x Annie Selke collection! It’s the Ojai Blue Loom Cotton Rug and I love the geometric pattern. It’s the prettiest shade of blue!

His whole new collection is gorgeous and you can see it right here. And here are 9 more of my favorite home finds from around the web!

How great are those wicker scalloped frames?! And that grecian bust planter is so fun. The netted dome planter is perfect for summer bbq’s and keeping the flies away!

May is a crazy month for parents. Like, where did it go?! So before we get too far into June I wanted to share a life lately update! The fun stuff anyway. In no particular order…

With my friend Molly at a dinner for Margaux NY Shoes and illustrator Happy Menocal. I wore a blue ruffle wrap skirt, this new scoop neck black stretch tee, and these black crisscross woven heels!

Reporting to swim team duty with these crazy fools.

My friend Alex who is the designer behind Persifor threw an amazing dinner party at Charleston Artist Collective. I LOVE her line! I’m wearing this pink gingham dress, these pink woven block heel sandals, and a white Complet handbag! And side note, I just got that blue coral print dress Alex is wearing and can’t wait to wear it!

This was shortly after the moment Josh threw a jellyfish at me. Granted it was the non stinging type, but I didn’t know that when it landed on me. I’ll never let him forget. I’m wearing this red swimsuit and this red heart wire headband!

And from a happier boat day, ha! I’m excited for these two to get out of school this week for summer! I’m wearing this gingham coverup dress.

At one of my favorite Charleston restaurants, Little Jacks, with Haskell. They have the best cheeseburgers. 

I’m wearing one of my most favorite dresses. It’s this navy floral print midi cap sleeve dress and it’s the most flattering and fun silhouette. It comes in a few different prints! I’m in love with this red! Also these metallic heels and a blue chanel bag. My little pearl shell necklace is by Hart!

We took this selfie before a “mom pool party” on IOP that was really the best afternoon. Just moms before the summer break storm of kids and activities. These two, Jessica and Suzanne, are two of my favorite neighbors :) I wore this blue lace up swimsuit.

I know I just shared these photos yesterday but I would be remiss to not mention this fun night in Summerville celebrating Gray’s birthday. I wish I was cool enough to actually hop around town on my roller skates, i definitely rode a bike. Wearing this green dress!

We went to the beach yesterday for the afternoon and I really need to make the effort to do that more. And I really need to make the effort to re-up everyone’s sunscreen more often. Why is that sooo hard?!

And don’t forget to wear the damn swimsuit and just have fun. I’m wearing this navy one piece (with underwire support!), this yellow gingham wire headband, and this pareo wrap

Last week I hosted some friends at Coral House and we had the most amazing, enlightening week! For a few it was their first time on Harbour Island, and as some of you might know, there’s something special about that little place that just sucks you right in. The week was full of laughs, meaningful conversation, tears (the good kind), and of course sun, sand, clear blue water, and karaoke. And island drinks. Lots of island drinks.

I packed some new Weezie beach towels for Coral House, along with my new red scalloped swimsuit, and some True Botanicals hydrating nutrient mist.

We went on the most incredible boat ride to see the pigs, check out sand dollar beach, and snorkel! I love how the shade of blue water changes around the islands. Here are Kate Long Stevenson and Deirdre Zahl surrounded by the prettiest blue!

I’m wearing my blue lace up swimsuit, and Marysia is wearing her gingham rash guard swimsuit

We had dinner catered at the house our first night and it was magical to just sit and chat and catch up after a perfect day on the beach.

Deirdre surprised us with her new rice beads initial charms!

Lots of late morning island walks…

Lots of yummy meals at the Dunmore!

And sunset cocktails on the porch!

I think this is pre-beach. Or maybe it was post beach and grocery run. I can’t remember. 

My favorite corner at the house.

Karaoke at Daddy D’s. Best night. Little dark. Little blurry.

Another lunch at the Dunmore. Their lobster cobb salad plus a side of fries is my favorite.

Marysia looking adorable matching her new Moke.

Beach boot camp class – TOUGH, but felt so good to move and stretch!

This pink embroidered dress was my favorite piece of the whole week!

Poolside photo recap session. 

Thank you Deirdre, Jackie, Elizabeth, Marysia, Kate, and Molly for an unforgettable week!!

Shameless plug: Coral House makes for a great girls trip spot! Check us out on Instagram and on VRBO!
