If you've been following my instagram then you caught a glimpse of the beautiful weekend I had. We headed 2 hours south to Bluffton, SC and stayed with my friend Gray's family at her parent's home. Now, saying that this part of the lowcountry is beautiful and amazing just doesn't do it justice. The best way I can think to describe it is this - place yourself in the middle of your favorite Nicholas Sparks book. There you are. Lovely, isn't it?
Gray's parents, Joe & Mary (yes Gray is like Baby Jesus), have a dreamy home right on the May River. The views are incredible. We spent our time on the boat, anchoring at sandbars, waiting out rainstorms, fishing, porch swinging, and eating lowcountry boils. The kids had a blast. Here are some pics. Most were snapped by Gray, some by me.
We stopped in at Palmetto Bluff for lunch. I have a deep love for that place.
Guys had to get out and push when our boat hit bottom...
I have a new shoe obsession. I've been spending ridiculous amounts of time on Sole Society's site lately. Ridiculous amounts of time pouring over all their pretty shoes that are not expensive. Like, at all. And Julianna Hough's pretty face modeling them doesn't hurt either. It's the happiest little place over there - I just love when new brands come out with fists swinging.
I'm a major fan of booties. I don't find tall boots to be all that comfortable so booties are really where it's at in my book. Thankfully they're 100% IN right now so there are some fun styles to pick up, especially thoese strap booties. And can you even believe that gorgeous jeweled dress?
Remember my search for new bedding? Well my friend Bailey of Biscuit Home Shop (as well as the awesome blog Peppermint Bliss) came to my rescue and made my master bedroom the bomb digity. We worked together choosing pieces from her Biscuit Bedding line and came up with, what I believe to be, pure dreaminess.
It's pretty much the softest bedding I've ever slept on. My friend Alex recently wrote that she's a bedding snob and that Biscuit Bedding is totally her jam (or something like that- give me a break I'm not going to go look it up exactly). But she went on and on about how she was shocked at how well priced Biscuit Bedding is considering what a high quality product it is. Well I 100% agree. So ditto, Alex.
Fletcher decided to photo-crash my pictures. Seriously. Don't worry, he didn't witness me jumping on the bed.
Thank you to my bedding fairies, Biscuit Bedding, for hooking me up in the prettiest way possible. I'm so happy with how my bed turned out. And thanks to those bedding fairies you can shop the entire Biscuit Home & Bedding collection and get 15% off of your purchase using the code "Biscuit15". Hurry though, ends tonight at midnight central time.
Sundays are meant to be happy, comfortable, relaxing. It starts with what you throw on in the morning. The key is to have attractive "comfort clothes". That way there is no decision over whether to dress cute & uncomfortable vs comfy & slobby.
This street style photo caught my eye hard. Those lace up booties seal the whole deal for me. My mind has kind of switched gears and is now focused on fall fashion. I'm finding that the things I'm scooping up are of the long sleeves and pants variety. Now I need some fresh booties.
Here at the new house (though we've been here a year so I suppose I can't call it new anymore) I still need window treatments on a lot of our windows. I totally love roman shades, I do, but I really love that there are so many ready made pretty drapes available. Plus they look really good, open or pulled closed. Here are some of my favorite store bought options.
I'm a Keeper! Are you? Wondering what it is? It's the new visual marketplace for happy & productive shopping. It's pretty much just like Pinterest, except you "keep" things instead of "pin" them. And the best part - it's based totally on shopping. Yep.
I've been busy creating boutiques based around my favorite things like fashion, furniture, art...
Keep is soooo good for me b/c as much as I would like to blog about everything that I love, I can't. Keep allows me to organize all my favorites in one easy spot just by clicking "keep it" in my toolbar (the process is just like pinterest). So you can follow along and see what I'm loving, too
I hope you will come join! The Keep curators are top notch and find the most unique and awesome things (that you can actually easily buy). Come find me on Keep HERE.
