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 :)

Lilly has a new favorite kids brand! I love when we find both cute and classic clothing for kids that isn’t mass produced! And Hadley Girl is all that, plus comfortable so Lilly loves wearing it!

Hello Hadley started out as a bow company (I bet many of you have seen them before). Lilly has some of their striped and floral scrunchies and even I love borrowing them! They’re based in Colorado and the line was started by a mom who wanted cute accessories for her kids to play in. This year they extended their collection to clothing and it’s just sooo cute! Lilly’s favorite dress of all is this stripe peony everyday dress. It’s so cute on! Here are more of our favorites from the collection!

Etsy is the best, isn’t it? You can find anything on there. I recently scored this vintage rattan monkey basket (from this shop) on there and he now has a home at Coral House. So cute!!

Happy Thursday! We are en route to Harbour Island this morning and I’m so excited to spend a week in my 2nd favorite place (after Charleston, of course). Seems like a good time to catch you up on a little bit of our life lately.


We finished our sunroom project and I am SO happy to have a home gym now. The space is so pretty and it looks over the pool and I love being in there.



We’ve had a lot of boat days this summer. Exploring Charleston by boat is like a whole different side of the city. I’m wearing this dress.



We spent a week in Denver on vacation with my side of the family. If you missed that recap post it’s right here.



We spent 4th of July in Bluffton at Gray’s parent’s annual party – her mom does the cutest job!



I wore this white dress!



More 4th of July weekend festivities in Charleston with my friend Haskell. I’m wearing this swimsuit.



Selfies in my butterfly top (on sale!).



I took the kids to TN for a few days to visit family! They loved it. I’m wearing a Love Shack Fancy dress and my new woven sandals here.



The Smoky Mountains are just so pretty. I hadn’t been to this area since I was 9 years old.



Dinner with friends with the most extraordinary Charleston back drop. I’m wearing this red dress (which I have in 3 colors).



See, here it is in pink, ha!



Celebrating Gray’s birthday, parade style.



Mountain camp with the kids and their friends.



I ordered these garment storage boxes to finally organize my closet!



Dinner downtown with my Think Tank Drink Tank ladies – I love this group of Charleston women!!



The summer of pie. Good thing I have that home gym to try to work some of this off!
