Just a few notables to lead us into the weekend… All from a few different shops but let’s just say that Lilly Pulitzer and JCrew are bringing it hard right now!

black ruffle mini dress, striped beach towel, green tunic


Those jeweled black pumps are amazing, as are the metallic flats and they’re under $100 – such a good daily flat. I also want to live in that green tunic this summer. Speaking of LP, how amazing would that pink boucle dress be for summer parties?


PS: Take 40% off of EVERYTHING at Loft right now!

True story: It was a normal morning as I was checking new arrivals at my favorite online spots when I came across the OYObox – A box who’s sole purpose is to store and protect sunglasses. Um, great idea. I need this. So I favorited it and kept it on my Keep and all that fun stuff. Next thing I know I get an email from OYObox saying that they saw it on the Keep feed and would like to send me one to try. You bet.




I chose this burl color but there are a lot of other options including white, black, red, mahogany, bamboo… Normally I keep the case on my dresser and not on this kantha quilt (duh) but for the sake of better and brighter pictures, here she is.

I’ve never been good about taking care of my sunnies. They get tossed around in different purses, left in my car or my husband’s or even the golf cart, left on the counter, vanity, who knows where else. So it’s great to finally have a place to actually corral them to.

And the quality of the OYObox is shockingly amazing, not to mention how pretty it is. I mean, it’s legit. And I treat it like gold which I guess is the point, right? We should take care of our things. So thank you to OYObox for making it easier for us to do just that.

Have you discovered Anthropologie’s home & garden brand Terrain? I stumbled upon them in November while holiday shopping and fell flat out in love (as you may have noticed if you follow me on Keep). Their plants and garden items have me coming back on the regular to see what’s new, but the furniture and entertaining items are equally impressive. It’s definitely a favorite site of mine to visit when my eyes are craving something pretty, unique, and inspiring.




All the more reason why they’re one of my favorite Valentine’s shopping destinations this year. I pulled a few of my most favorite giftables starting with those two tone pink tumblers (also available in cobalt and creamy white).

Okay, let’s just put it out there that those marble & wood serving boards might just be the prettiest in the world. And a copper tin candle? I just want to sit it on my nightstand. You may think that the set of cleaning products is an odd Valentine’s gift, but these are all natural (not to mention pretty). And a healthy home is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself and your family. Hmmm. Pretty sure I need these myself.




Go explore Terrain’s site – they have even made Valentine’s Day shopping easy by compiling the prettiest collection of gifts all right here. Also, enter the code “VALENTINES” during checkout of purchases over $100 and receive free shipping through 2/14. Scroll below to shop more of my favorites.



This post was brought to you by Terrain. All opinions, as always, are my own.

Thank you for such a warm response to my last Life Lately post. I’ve decided to bring it back. So here’s another…


Lilly’s really into dress up, I feel like I’m constantly picking up clothes and things and doing laundry. But how cute is this feather headband?




Pretty houses divided downtown by color during one of my walks.




Just a shot of me hanging in my coral Tieks and Frame Denim jeans.




I getting baby fever over here with all my friends’ new wee ones. This is Charlotte’s sweet Lucie. I can’t get enough of her Petit Bateau wardrobe that Char dresses her in. Isn’t she the snuggliest little gal?




And on Sunday I visited Lindsey’s new twins at her sip & see party. Gah baby fever (I have no business having another). She looks amazing.




Here’s the ghd flat iron that I’ve been using (and talked about in yesterday’s What I Wore post). Seriously love it!




My new Jane Pope mismatched earrings are my favorite favorites right now. Aren’t they so fun?




My mother in law got me these bowls from One Kings Lane and we’ve been using them every single day, they just make life happier. Sometimes it’s the little things… Anthropologie has a huge collection of bowls like this right here.




I’ve been walking (and trying to jog) the neighborhood a lot lately. These New Balance sneakers are totally my jam.




I got so hungry from pinning Super Bowl recipes that I had to make my ham delights. They are the bomb.




And ahhhh these Castaner sandals, I’m so in love with them. I’m going to wear them everywhere as soon as the weather turns. They come in a black stripe too. If I could justify it I’d get both.




Also, I’ve had a lot of you email about subscribing to LLL via email so that new posts will be emailed to your inbox. Stitch added the little link to the bottom of all my posts so now it’s easy to register for that! Hope that helps.

Just a few new things of note while I wait for the southern snow to come. Yep, it’s supposed to snow and ice in Charleston! The town has shut down. I’ve got our firewood, kids tucked in for naps, so not much else to do but wait and surf the web :) That reversible tote (for under $50) is really what inspired this whole post. I knew you needed to know about it.




aurora dress – I’m pretty sure this could be worn by anyone it’s so pretty.

reversible tote – under $50 and the reversible side is the prettiest cognac color.

bell sleeve romper – this is so so good, under $120, and comes in pink too!

embroidered white cover up – just enchanting don’t you think?

sissy top – you’ve seen me in the long sleeve version here, the best little top.

frye sandals – simple and cute, 3 color options.

 swing dress – $40, I have 3 of these in these swing dresses – seen in a red one here.


And this is random but I had so many of you ask about this Anthropologie dress of mine (now sold out) that I’ve worn a number of times…. well I just saw this Cynthia Vincent dress pop up in new arrivals and it immediately reminded me of the style of my dress. It’s just a flattering easy to wear maxi dress. Hope this helps!




You can see more of my favorite new arrivals in the LLL Boutique.
