Good morning! Hope you guys had a great weekend! We had a great time with our neighbors Saturday night and then had an impromptu picnic at Jonas Green Park on Sunday. There's nothing like dining al fresco right by the water on a beach. Albeit, it's a small beach and not meant for swimming, but we'll take what we can get!

I went into the city the other night for a blogger event at Lincoln Restaurant (a gorgeous space, I would just go there to see the interior again!), and wore this outfit there. It's funny, I always stress myself out with what I'm going to wear to these blogger events, because these girls really know how to dress. But this time around, I told myself not to do that and to dress just the way I want. Not to impress anyone, but to be myself and be comfortable. And I have to say, I really like this outfit a lot.

A lot of times I feel like I need to buy an entire outfit anytime I have an event to go to, but the only new item I picked up for this outfit was the blouse from Marshall's and it was under $20! So that barely counts as buying anything new, right? Everything else was something that I already had in my closet. And that's how it should be, right? Being able to find pieces in your wardrobe that'll work with new items. I kept everything pretty simple and neutral since I wanted the top to be the star of the outfit. And I'm trying to find every excuse to wear white shorts before Summer is over. Does anyone else feel that way too?

What do you guys think of this outfit? Is it something you would wear for a night out or for date night? I might have to wear this the next time Steve and I have date night...

Here are a few of my favorite items right now, and you know I couldn't leave out Cora from such a fabulous sale. There are so many items right now, so act fast before prices go back up on August 9th. I've picked out some basic staples that should be in every woman's wardrobe. Over the knee boots for Fall/Winter, a great little shoulder clutch, and you can't go wrong with those Joie Roxie sandals. I've already got a Moon and Lola monogram pendant with Cora's initials, but I would love to get my initials, hint hint.

And for Cora, I really couldn't resist the fun prints that this sale is offering. I mean, can we just talk about how cute those pineapple leggings are? And that Bonjour sweatshirt with polka dots - it's exactly the kind of sweatshirt a little toddler girl should wear. Or at least that's how I feel.

Happy shopping and happy weekend everyone!!

My Newest Fancies

my newest fancies 71514
Clare V Supreme Foldover / Kelly Wearstler Esker Ring / Indigo Linen Tunic Dress / Dahlia Chandelier / Sandwiches on the Beach Print / Geo Bottle Stoppers / Tortoise Matches / Leather Satchel / Crystal Mason Ring / Joie Abbott Sandal

Hi guys! Today is going to be a good day! The sun is shining and the temps have cooled down a bit here, meaning it's a great day to go and explore downtown Annapolis with Cora. While I head out, check out some of the items that I'm fancying right now. I'm obsessed with that indigo linen tunic dress, ordering it as we speak. And how cool are those geo bottle stoppers? Would make a great hostess gift, don't you think? I have always wanted a Ro Sham Beaux chandelier, but not the price tag that goes along with it. Luckily for me (and you), the Dahlia Chandelier answers our need for something similar but at a fraction of the cost. And the Crystal Mason Ring from Grace's collection is the perfect everyday ring. Another item added to my cart right now...

Happy shopping you guys!

Weekend Recap // The Farmer's Market, Pool Day, & a DIY

photo 4

Hi you guys! Hope you all had a fun weekend! Ours was pretty packed with a trip to the farmer's market on Saturday morning, squeezing in a quick DIY while Cora naps, and then cooling down at the pool later that day. Then yesterday we made some lattes and leisurely ate breakfast before heading to the mall to see Peppa Pig for Cora's sake. Although, it didn't turn out quite as we had imagined. She was really excited at the thought of seeing Peppa Pig, but when we got there, I think she was a little shocked at how big Peppa Pig was in "real life." We ended our trip at the mall with some shopping and funnily enough, I think she enjoyed that the most.

Then we headed to my parents' house to see my mom and my youngest brother to watch the World Cup final game and have dinner together. My mom totally spoiled us by whipping up a feast for us! It was most definitely the perfect way to end a really relaxing weekend. I hope yours was too!

Even though we didn't get that much produce, I just loved looking at it all. The colors and sheer volume look amazing.

I have been wanting to do this DIY for some time now. I picked up this vintage green magazine rack from the thrift store about a month ago and knew all it needed was a fresh coat of paint. I loved the idea of painting it a bright red and so...

VoilĂ ! Magic.

Said feast by my loving mom.
