Oxford Cloth Bows

I think if anything is evident about my blog, it’s that I love a good bow.  I mean, my second ever blog post was called “Ribbons and Bows.” (Actually, read that blog post, it’s hilarious but talk about staying true to myself over the years, haha.)

I spotted this top in the J. Crew’s jewelry section a few weeks before it was available and I became obsessed with finding it in stores. It turns out what I saw in the jewelry section was actually the dress with the bow in the front. The top has the bow in the back but you can, depending on your build, flip it around so that the slit and bow are in the front or you can even double the tie back around, so it’s in the front. Just note that when you do that the bow becomes smaller since you have less “tail” to work with.

On My Radar

Bonjour! Coming to you live from Paris! I’ve only been here for one day and I totally “get” why people love this city so much. Every corner is beautiful and there is always something delightful to look at. All of my expectations (and they were high!) have been blown out of the water. I feel…

Splash Into Summer

A few weeks ago I started to pull out my favorite Lilly dresses. In Florida, you can get away wearing Lilly pretty much all year round. But up here, you kind of have to wait for the summer months. Memorial Day is definitely the unofficial start of the summer and so it’s the best time to pull out your Lillys… or to pick up a couple of new ones for the season.

I had to share this promotion that Lilly Pulitzer is running starting today. Their gifts with purchases are ALWAYS amazing, but this time might be their best. How cute is that beach tent?!?!

Packing Lists

Paris Packing List

I’m flying to Paris TONIGHT! What! I can’t believe I’m actually going. Since I’m pretty nervous about the trip, I haven’t really been thinking about it that much. I have the “big” things planned, but for the most part, I think our plan is to wander around and just explore as much as we can. Even though this is my first trip there, I know if won’t be my last. (I already know I’d love to visit in the f

TRX Training

I love following the Kardashians on Snapchat. It’s such a fun guilty pleasure. Kourtney’s workout Snapchats are also SUPER motivational for me. Granted, they have a private trainer coming to their house every day… but it really does make me want to go to the gym and work a little harder. Whenever I’m doing squats,…

8 Healthy Salads to Savor this Summer

With my upcoming trip to Paris this week (!!!), I’ve been nonstop daydreaming about croissants and macarons. I do not plan on holding back whatsoever while I’m over there as far as the food is concerned. Which means… Salads are in my not-so-distant future. I’ll be dreaming of the croissants for now and I’ll pin…

An Album, Two Shows, and a Documentary

AN ALBUM Two words: HARRY STYLES. I was never really on the One Direction bandwagon. I liked some of their songs, and I’ve enjoyed Zayn’s recent music. However, Harry Styles y’all. There are no words to describe how in love I am with his new solo album. I had heard his song on the radio a…

Recent Purchases

I’ve been doing a little too much shopping as of late. I blame it on my excitement about upcoming trips. I’m kind of freaking out with how much travel I’ve scheduled for myself, but also… I’m pumped because everything is going to be great. I’m in Baltimore this weekend for the Preakness Stakes, then Paris next week, then DC for my five-year college reunion (how?!), and then a quick jaunt to Nantucket.

Today I thought I’d share some of the top things I’ve purchased recently and already LOVE.

On My Radar

Today is going to be a bit of a ramble here. Apparently, I have a lot on my mind! I’m really missing my fam this week. That’s the worst part visiting… I always feel the homesickness a little more intensely when I’m back for a week or so. While I was in Tampa, I ended up working…
