vacation

beach week

I’ve spent this entire week relaxing at the beach with my family. It’s been nice to unplugged and take time for the little things. I’m looking forward to the weekend here and celebrating my 28th. Here is a little glimpse at what I’ve been up to {follow along on instagram for more}.

sweet southern town

I still can’t get enough of the photos I took in Savannah. I absolutely love that town, and really hope to get back there one day soon. The moss filled trees and the perfect southern comfort food are calling my name.

the doors of Savannah

Our trip to Savannah last weekend was a great one. There’s nothing better than a small southern town, filled with rich history. The houses were to die for, and I couldn’t help but capture all the colorful doors. It’s amazing the impact a bold door can make on an older home.

a little bite of happy

As I have gotten older I have gained a true appreciation for sweets. Whether a bite of a freshly baked cupcake, a few macaroons or a piece of fancy chocolate, I truly enjoy a sweet treat every once in a while {ok, at least once a week}. Looking back over these picture from my trip to NYC, I can’t help but crave a Magnolia Bakery cupcake, a little bite of happiness.

friday finds {pattern love}

By now you are all well aware, I love a good collaboration. Anytime a designer produces pieces at an affordable price point I am all over it. DVF has done it again, this time with Roxy. Pairing up for a lovely little swimwear collection. Diane knows bold prints better than anyone else, and these prints are perfect for days spent in the sunshine. How cute are the little bags as well, the smaller ones are perfect to pack your swimsuits in.

Texas wine

I recently had the chance to visit Texas wine country (which you may not know is the second most visited wine region in the USA). Fredericksburg, TX is not to far outside of Austin and well worth the drive. The bf and I had an absolute blast! The wine was great and the town was just precious. If you are in the region you have to stop in.

cheers!/a little outfit shot/barrel room tasting/and another shot looking down/flowers in cans/german beer, a nice break from the wine/a much-needed latte the day after

last minute plans

I went to Houston this past weekend for a very last-minute trip, and I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend! We did so much in the short time we were there and I discovered two new places I absolutely love  {Spec’s for the most amazing liquor and wine selection, and Tiny Boxwood’s, the cutest, most delicious brunch place ever}. Not to mention I came home with a super cute new pair of shoes and my first succulent!

{TIP: Add a shirt over your maxi dresses, for a different look}

 

don’t be afraid {be inspired}

One of the biggest fashion myths I find low-price shoppers cling to is that large, upscale, department stores are out of their price reach. Well I am here to say do not be afraid. Those with smaller budgets tend to stray away from these places. I instead jump right in. These department stores can be the perfect place for inspiration not to mention sale racks, especially at the end of the season. During my stay in NYC I visited Bloomingdale’s, my absolute favorite high-end department store. Here you can find anything from couture designers too much lower priced in-house brands such as aqua! The sales racks were packed full! With half-price cashmere, dressy silk tops even current winter items. I found a great top for $40! Not to mention I didn’t mind snapping inspiration along the way. The best part about Bloomingdale’s… the dressing rooms. They are huge, not to mention so perfectly decorated {the birds are not real}.

{amazing fitting rooms}

Moral of the story, don’t be intimidated to shop higher-end department stores, even if you come out empty-handed you still leave inspired!
