Get Ready To Graduate!

Hi class of 2018!

I've been getting a lot of requests lately to share some of my picks for graduation dresses so I thought I'd share my favorites. Can't believe its been two years already since I graduated high school- time flies!


One of my favorite parts about graduation was decorating my cap! I made a tutorial on how I decorated mine if you are looking for some inso, find the post  here!

 Congrats to all of this years graduates & thanks for reading!

Sunday FUNday

Happy Sunday!

Sunday's are the best- the perfect day to relax and get organized for the week to come. I saw this tee from Shop Southern Roots TX, and thought it was so fun. I love the bright graphic on this adorable blush tee. Also this is the softest shirt I've ever worn, I never want to take it off! When I got it in the mail all I could think about was donuts for some reason- maybe the bright colors reminded me of sprinkles? Anyway, Krispy Kreme made the perfect location for this fun tee.

Gifts for the Graduate

Hi everyone! I hope your week is going great so far!

It's almost that time of year again, GRADUATION! Graduating is such an exciting time in someones life. I'm always at graduation parties during the summer and I wanted to share a few ideas for graduation gifts. A lot of people typically will just do a card with some cash to help the grad save up for school, but I added in a few gifts that are more personal and fun.

Prints in the Park

Hi everyone! If you've read my blog for a while or follow me on Instagram you know I love stripes! It's such a great print, and one of my favorite things to do in the spring is mix prints. While I wish spring meant sunny and in the 60's, there's still a lot of rainy and cool days (even a few snowy days this year). I paired this super cute striped rain coat with my favorite sweater from  KJP. A few weeks ago I picked up this scarf at H&M and have found myself wearing it all the time! I love the way it looks on my  Gigi New York bag! Shop my look at the end of this post.

A Sunny Stay at Sonesta HHI

Hi everyone! On spring break I was so excited to stay at the  Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island for a few days. It was absolutely breathtaking and everyone at the resort was very accommodating. I've been to Hilton Head a few times prior, but this was by far the best and most relaxing stay I've had.

There are so many amenities at the hotel including two pools, a hot tub, bike rentals, a spa, a 24 hour fitness center, incredible dining options, and much more. My mom and I had breakfast at Heywards both days of our stay and were blown away by how fabulous everything was (I highly recommend the almond french toast)! We also had dinner at the hotel one evening, there were so many appetizing items on the menu it was so hard to decide. I ended up getting the Seafood Pasta, and my mom had the Filet. Both were delightful. One of the sweetest touches was the cheese platter left in our room upon arrival- felt so welcome!

The resort is gorgeous everywhere you look and just steps away from the beach! We also loved hanging out by the pool and soaking up the sun. It was so nice to be in the sunshine again, we especially loved sitting in the cabanas by the pool and getting a little bit of a tan. My mom and I also were loving Sweet Cane Bar and Grill while we were at the pool. The staff was so sweet and helpful, plus the food and drinks were lovely! I thought it would be fun do do a short video so you could really get a feel for how lovely the Sonesta was, find it at the end of this post along with links to the items I'm wearing. 



Finally got to break out my favorite suit from the new Lilly Pulitzer swimwear collection! 

This French toast! SO GOOD!

The cabanas by the pool were so cozy and great for getting a tan. 

I always love being surrounded by palm trees on vacay!


I have been dreaming of this almond French toast since my trip!

Ruffled Wrap Skirt

Hi everyone! I'm so sick of the cold, and can't wait to start wearing spring pieces again like skirts and dresses. I recently received this ruffle wrap skirt from Red Dress Boutique and love it. It's a fun skirt with the ruffle detail, but also the perfect navy so it can be paired with so many looks (plus its only $32)! Hopefully spring is right around the corner. Shop my look at the end of the post!


I got this adorable button down at Banana Republic Factory for under $30! They didn't have the exact one online, but they do have the striped!
