Our Patio / Porch Reveal with Grandinroad

Happy Friday!!! I am so excited to finally share our patio and porches now that everything is finished! Teaming up with Grandinroad on these spaces was truly a dream come true. I am so thrilled with how everything turned out, and I can't say enough about the beauty and quality of all their pieces. 

This sitting area may just be my favorite of all the spaces. I already know we're going to get a ton of use out of the Fulton fire pit, and I love that it can be changed into a table with this copper tray. So, not only is it pretty to look at, it's also versatile as well. And the plantation chairs are so comfy. 




Our little chocolate lover trying to steal all the Hershey bars :) 






And this Holly dining set has me more excited than ever to eat dinner outside. The prima linen collection brings such a fun pop to the color to the table, and I'm also seriously obsessed with the Bexley melamine dinnerware




I love that we were able to create a space for relaxing, while also creating a space to enjoy meals outdoors as a family. 




The Yorkshire sectional was the perfect fit for our smaller side deck. I've already spent quite a few evenings cozied up on this comfy couch with a glass of wine and a good book. 




And last, but not least, here is our front porch. In the evenings our front porch gets a really nice breeze, so rocking in these beautiful Nantucket rockers is one of our favorite things to do. 


Hydrangeas staying alive and vibrant thanks to these awesome self watering planters! 


And what's a southern front porch without a few good monograms...haha! But all jokes aside, this monogram coco boarder door mat is pretty incredible. 


A HUGE thank you to Grandinroad for helping us make our outdoor space even better than we pictured, and also for gifting us with the items linked below.

Wish List Wednesday Under $50 + Lilly Pulitzer Gift with Purchase

Happy hump day, loves! I've got some good things on my wish list this week, and the best part, they are all under $50!!! 

You just can't go wrong with off the shoulder and good stripes. 



These pink beauties would look so good with the dress above or the top below. And the price can't be beat at only $32. 
Off The Shoulder Denim Top
I love everything about this top, and the structure of it doesn't look too boxy, which is always a plus! 




These are my favorite flip-flops to toss on in the summer, and I'm kind of dying over this navy leopard print. 



As if I don't already own enough striped dresses...but the arms are just too cute on this one :) 



Clearly I'm in an off the shoulder mood today...ha! But seriously, I love the color and the casual look of this top. 



You can never have too many toss on swing dresses. And right now, this one is on sale for only $29!!! I'm thinking I may need to grab this one in a few colors! 


And last, this adorable pom pom tote would be so fun to take to the beach or the pool. 



Also, I wanted to make sure I mentioned that today is National Wear Your Lilly Day!!!! And to celebrate this special day, Lilly is offering free gifts with purchase!! 

I'm rocking my favorite romper today for the occasion. This romper is so comfortable, and it has a hidden button up top which makes slipping it off to use the potty a breeze :) 



So many gorgeous new Lilly arrivals!!

What I'm Wearing - Lace Baby Doll Dress (40% off)












Dress also in pink here // Sandals // Clutch (only $25) // Earrings // Bracelet

(Dress runs big...for sizing reference, I'm wearing the xs)

Happy Tuesday, y'all!! I wore this dress last weekend to an outdoor event, and then again for date night last week. It's super lightweight, which is so nice with the hot days we've been having, and even though it's white, it's lined so you can't see through it at all. I'll call it a white dress win :) 

Hope you all have a great day, I am off to run some errands and then hopefully get back home in time to finally start organizing my kitchen! Yep, I still haven't made it through the first room in my new organizing book, but I'm over here in the "stay strong, you've got this" mode so there's still hope..ha!

Summer Shoes For The Entire Family

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Our weekend was spent outdoors in the backyard finishing up the landscaping around the patio. It was a TON of work, but I'm so happy it is finished, and I can't wait to sit back and enjoy its beauty! 

As I've mentioned before, one of the neighborhood pools is right down the street from our new house. And with the Charleston heat in full swing, we've been making plenty of visits to cool off. I keep our pool bag packed in our mudroom with our favorite slip-on summer sandals from Rack Room Shoes right by its side. 

My family and I have been rocking Rack Room Shoes for a few years now, and every season we all get excited to check out the new styles. And with Carson being eight and already into "what's cool", I'm happy that Rack Room offers all the latest trends.

5 on Friday


ONE // 

We have been working like crazy on all our outdoor spaces. Earlier this week I finally switched out our front porch planters, and I must say, I think they turned out pretty good. I can never get enough of pink hydrangeas. 


//  Our patio is complete, and I'm so excited to finally be able to spend some time dining and relaxing in our backyard. 


I am planning on showing you guys the full patio reveal with Grandinroad next week! 


But that means Todd and I will be busting our butts this weekend to put in all the bushes and plants so this space will be looking top notch! 

Lord help us, that's a lot of stuff to plant :) 



TWO // 
 This little lady and I enjoyed some time to ourselves this week. Carson has had baseball camp from 9-1 each day, and it's been really nice to have some one on one time with Tay. 

Picking up a few groceries and our favorite flowers. 



// And because I really love her (and she asked for two days straight), we made the DIY hatchimals that she found on Youtube. Here's the video for any of you that may be interested. Warning, it makes a big freaking mess, but she seriously has not stopped playing with these little balls of fur and their eggs. 



THREE // 

My girl Natalie hosted supper club last night, and as always, the food (and the company) were amazing!! 





What I wore





FOUR // 

Wednesday evening it was beautiful outside, so we all decided to take Rocky on a long walk. On our walk, we discovered some gorgeous new trails that were just built near our house on the island. The views on these trails were so pretty, plus, the sunset that evening was breathtaking. 



It was so cute to see the kids having fun together skipping rocks in the water. I am thinking that evening walks as a family will be happening a lot more this summer. 


FIVE // 
You guys have no idea how relieved I was to read all of your messages on Instastories saying you all didn't like the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up. I mean, I agree with her overall message of getting rid of the things we don't love, but holy shit, she took it to another level. I did have a few moments of laughter while reading it, picturing Todd coming home from work and hearing me thanking my clothes for the day...ha! 

  
But because I'm desperately wanting to get everything organized in the new house, I decided to pick up this book. The reviews are great, and I love the way it's laid out by each room. So, my plan is to start in the kitchen on Friday. And I know many of you asked that I share this organizing journey with you, plus, any tips I learn along the way so I will make sure I take some before and after pictures and will also share my thoughts on the book.
