Reading in Ruffles

Hi everyone! I ordered this book 'Classic Style' by Kate Schelter before my road trip a few weekends ago, and absolutely loved it. All of the illustrations are adorable, and it was such a great read! I'm also loving this  top from  Southern Roots TX. The ruffle detail is so adorable! It's called the 'Saturday Brunch Blouse' which I find to be so fitting. It's a great top to dress up, or dress down which I'm always looking for in my closet. I paired my top with a pair of jeans and one of my favorite straw bags.

Back to School Backpack

Hi everyone! Yes- I know there's still a while until everyone is heading back to school, but I just can't help but share my backpack for this year! I've had a  Madeline & Company backpack for a few years now, and am so excited about the new slim design. It's a perfect size, and I love how organized it is! There's a bunch of interior pockets, a perfect zipper pocket for headphones, and a place to put my laptop. I also can't get enough of the striped interior! The plain navy  backpack is so classic, and they have so many fun colorful options too! Use code 'BELLEOFTHEBALL' for 15% off your purchase on  Madeline & Company!

Also if there's any posts about college or back to school you'd like to see, I'd love to hear your suggestions in the comments!

Boats and a Tote

Hi everyone! Yes- I am wearing this green sweater again! I'm in love with the bright pop of green and  the fact that it matches my new tote from  Barrington Gifts! This is my second bag from Barrington and I couldn't love them anymore. It's the  perfect tote to travel with, and I can't wait to use mine for school. One of the best things about Barrington Gifts is that you can customize everything about the bag from the pattern, to the color of the leather straps. I loved adding my monogram in green to pop on the navy. Also I bought these pants last year from J Crew, but found a very similar pair for under $30! I linked everything I'm wearing at the end of the post.

Hi everyone! I'm so excited about this post, I'm wearing my first Elsa Top! I've always wanted an Elsa, and was so excited to find this one in my favorite pattern- 'Southern Charm'. For only $30 I couldn't say no! I got it from the Instagram shop @ashleyrosehurstcloset - she sells a lot of adorable things at great prices. I've also been loving my cork clutch from Carolina Clothing Company, it goes with everything! How fun are these KEP designs pom pom earrings- I've been loving adding a pop of green to my outfits lately!

Farm Bash

Hi everyone! On Saturday I attended the  Victory Cup Farm Bash in Patterson, NY and had an amazing time! The day was full of fun from beginning to end! We spent the day watching the polo match, chatting in the Founders Lounge, and visiting the many vendors. I loved talking with old friends, and making new ones. After the match, a family style dinner was set up on the field, which I absolutely loved. Everything was delicious, especially the strawberry shortcake. The weather was beautiful and it was the perfect day for watching polo with friends! Looking forward to attending the next Victory Cup match on Governor's Island in September.

So nice meeting Sarah!

So much fun chatting with the girls who won tickets from my Instagram! Stay tuned for a ticket giveaway for the event in September! 

With the lovely  Julia Shingler.

This  Peter Beaton hat is absolutely darling.
