Comfy Wedges Under $30








Happy Friday, loves!!! I am so excited to share these adorable, SUPER comfortable wedges from Rack Room Shoes. As much as I love a good pair of tall heels, wedges and flat sandals are so much more practical...especially during the day. Rack Room Shoes has knocked it out of the park this spring with all their cute sandals and wedges, plus, their prices can't be beat! And I love that they always offer buy one get one 50% off, making it easy and affordable to buy shoes for your entire family. 

Thank you Rack Room Shoes for partnering on this post.

Avocado and Three Bean Salad + 2 Outfits

Good morning, and happy Thursday! 

I received a lot of requests via Instagram to share the three bean salad I made for a cookout last week. This is probably one of my favorite summer salads and I love that is saves so well. I ended up having it for lunch the next day with some fresh avocado, and then using the rest on our tacos for dinner. 

The only thing I did different, is I added a small amount of purple onion. I love the flavor of purple onions, plus, I think they pair well with everything in this salad. 





// I also wanted to share the two outfits below with you guys. 

This top is the cutest thing ever, and the quality is amazing. It feels like a top that would cost $100, not $35! For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing the xs. 



// Next, this is the other white dress that finally arrived. I seriously contemplated wearing this one for the event tonight, but decided that my other choice would be better for all the eating and moving I'll be doing tonight. 

This is another dress that once you put on you won't believe the $68 price tag. The material is thick and double lined. It also comes in three other colors, which I think would be perfect to wear to a spring or summer wedding. 

 This dress runs small, so make sure you go up one size. For reference, I'm wearing the small.

This and That


// I am so pumped about tomorrow night, and my little white dress! Charleston is hosting it's second Diner En Blanc event. I heard the event was a blast last year, so I am super excited to be attending this year. And I am even more excited to find out where the secret location will be held this year!  I'm sure I'll be posting a lot of stories tomorrow night, so be sure to follow along here :) 




// I picked up a new plant for our porch last week because the other plant I had before was just too heavy and ended up swaying to one side. We tried leveling it out with more potting soil while also tying it up, but neither worked. And speaking of outdoor spaces, we finally came up with a design for our patio out back!! I'm so excited and I can't wait to show you guys! 



// Carson's baseball team is still undefeated and they only have three more games left. I love watching him play, and I'm so proud of his dedication and the practice he has put in the season. 


// We have plans to spend the day at the beach this weekend, and I'm so excited to see Taylor in this adorable swimsuit!




// And speaking of swimsuits, after sharing this one on Instagram last night I had a few requests to share the details here. I've owned this swimsuit for a LONG time and it is still one of my favorites! I love it so much that I actually bought it in the royal blue last year as well. 

It's such a flattering cut, plus, the top has great support. For sizing reference, I'm wearing the six. 

La Blanca Twist Front Swimsuit also here // Sandals (on sale for $29.99) 


// I also found the perfect little cover-up for this summer. It's a great length, it can be adjusted to wear as loose (or tight) as you want, and it's under $50! 


// You all know I love a maxi, so when I spotted this off the shoulder maxi I had to grab it.



// And last, I wanted to let y'all know that they just came out with the new short and top version in my most beloved pajamas! I swear, once you buy a pair of these you will never want to wear anything else to bed.

The Great White Dress Debate

First off, thank y'all SO much for all the sweet comments and the votes! I was really shocked with how many of you loved the two piece short set. You know how it goes though, we are our own worst critic, and my thighs are just one of those things I'm not all that crazy about. 

So, here are all the dresses that I showed you guys last night, along with size/fit information. And I just got confirmation that this dress is finally arriving today as well. It was on back order so I didn't think it would make it in time, but I think I already know which dress I'm going to wear anyway :) 


(Dress runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing the xs) 



Dress runs tts / slightly loose. If you are between sizes, go down a size. For reference, I'm wearing the xs. 



Runs tts, but I went up because of the reviews. I'm wearing the small, but should have sized down to my normal xs size, so go with your regular size (not up). 



Runs on the bigger side, but again, I went up because I wasn't sure (should've gone with the xs). 



This dress runs on the smaller side (snug in the waist and chest). For reference, I'm wearing the 2p. 


Again, thanks so much for your help, and I can't wait to show you guys which dress I choose :)

What I'm Wearing...Peplum Tee + Distressed Jeans










Kate Spade Handbag (on sale) // Cuff // Coil Ring also here 

The weather in Charleston last week was amazing, and it was perfect for this comfy lightweight peplum tee. I wore it once with jean shorts, and then again the way you see it pictured here. It really is the perfect summer tee, and I love that the peplum bottom gives it a little more flare than just a regular plain tee. And I was so happy to see my $59 distressed jeans that I bought last year restocked again this year. They have just the right amount of stretch, and the length is spot on for us shorter gals. 

 I sure hope you all had a wonderful weekend, because I know we sure did! It's now raining cats and dogs in Charleston today, so my plans of getting started on our mini garden aren't looking too good. But the rest of the week looks sunny, so I'll just have to start later in the week.

5 on Friday

ONE // 

Yesterday evening we had a little cookout with our friends that are in town staying with us. Both she and her two kids are gluten free, so I decided to make this pasta salad. The original recipe calls for orzo, but since that's not gluten free I used gf penne pasta instead. It turned out really good, and it was such a nice, light side to accompany our main dish. 



If you guys have a Whole Foods near you, I highly recommend their coconut habanero chicken kabobs because they were delicious!  



TWO // 

I have had a few reader requests for some petite friendly good white jeans. The jeans I'm wearing below are some of my favorites and the price point is so good, but I do still have to cuff them. 



Here are a few others that I think would be a good fit for all my girls that arebetween the height of 5'1-5'4. 












THREE // 

On Wednesday, I attended the most beautiful luncheon that was hosted by the wonderful girls from Persifor. Everything from the setup, the food, and the yummy cocktails were amazing. And their clothing is so fun and perfect for summer. 





What I wore

Romper also here // Wedges



FOUR // 

Yesterday, I shared a few new dresses on Instastories that just arrived. I had a lot of questions about sizing, so I figured I would share the dresses on here along with sizing and fit. 


Dress runs small, so size up. For reference, I'm wearing the small. 


Swing Dress (only $34) // Sandals

This swing dress runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing the xs. 


Swing Dress (only $34) // Sandals // Earrings



Runs a little on the small side, so I would size up if you're between sizes. For reference, I'm wearing the 2p. 



This dress runs big! I'm wearing the xs, but I could have easily sized down to the xxs so size down at least one size in this one. 


FIVE // 

Cheers friends, and Happy Freaking Friday!!
