Sea You Soon

Sea you soon Boca Grande!
Can’t wait to disconnect a bit, physically let my body heal and mentally CHILL the heck out. It’s been a crazy two months and this trip couldn’t come at a better time.

Something about a beach town, this one especially, that makes my heart happy. Every year gets more exciting because Hudson get’s to experience it differently. I’m sure there will be daily ice cream stops, bike rides and sand absolutely everywhere.

5 Things

1 // Gal Meets Glam Beauty Posts

If you guys don’t follow her, it would be shocking (with 1.1 million followers) but if you’re living under a rock, take a second to see her latest beauty posts. All about products for your best summer skin, the color of the summer (blue! which I agree) and products to help fight humidity (yes, please!).

2 // The Beach People + Joie 

I adore The Beach People’s roundies and generally the overall beach aesthetic, but just recently they partnered with Joie and came up with a pretty sweet new roundie towel.

3 // & Other Stories Swimwear 

Stylish and affordable swim-wear for all.

From cute two pieces to awesome one pieces, find your new summer suit here. I’m obsessed with this one.

4 // Kasia Jewelry

Another line that I just covet! Follow them on Instagram to see the latest plus, it’s also easy to share and/or tag for dropping those hints 😉 I love simple, classic jewelry for summer. Like my gold diamond wedding band, it never comes off.

5 // Gigi Pip 

The ultimate summer hat destination! I can’t decide between this one or this one.


Grab & Go

Monday mornings come quick and sometimes I’m just not prepared.

I typically grab the favorite of the moment and if I need one, a hat and I’m out.

I’m mildly obsessed with this shirt, that’s super lightweight and comfortable and doesn’t leave me freezing in chilly A/C.

And these sandals, I’m sure you’re sick of them by now so I’m sorry – because I’m not 🙂

Hope everyone enjoys the extra time today!

from the Farmer’s Market, to visiting Papa at work, to the mass amounts of good food we ate, last weekend was delightful.

happy #fridayeve!






White Sands with J. Jill

Guys, it’s Memorial Day weekend… well, almost.

Time to break out the summer staples, pack up and head to the beach, grill ALL the things and possibly shop all the amazing sales.

I’ll put my favorite sale items on Friday for my weekend wants post, but until then, I’ll highly recommend this dress from J.Jill that screams summer.

What’s on your summer wish list?

5 Things

1 // Madewell + Away

I got Nick an away suitcase last year and he loves it. I don’t travel as much as he does, but of course now that Madewell and Away have joined forces, I’m totally jonesin’ for one. How flipping cute is it!? Plus, the portable charging stuff is rad.

2 // A Mexico getaway w/ Madewell by Whit & Delight

Take one of my favorite insta bloggers, add Madewell (my favorite store, hands down) and a gorgeous Mexican resort, this is what you get. Her travel diaries are gems and this one is no different. Mexico anyone!? 

3 // The Posie Top

Honestly, anything this girl touches turns to gold. She’s an icon for me – her style is perfect, your design style is perfect and I can’t get over how cool she is. I know I’ve said in my next life I’d like to be Kate Hudson, but Jules would be a close second. In the meantime, I’ll just try to dress like her.

4 // The Clean Beauty Box

The clean beauty trend is coming in hot. And as naive as I am about skin and beauty products, I love the idea of a clean beauty box. When summer really hits, I stay away from a ton of make-up because I think a naturally golden tan and healthy skin reigns supreme. Plus, now that I’m old enough to care – products NOT being tested on animals is kinda a must for me. Do you have a clean beauty product you just love?! Please share.

5 // Extra-Ordinary Adventures

“A large hearted and optimistic novel” that includes a 30 something and Destin, Florida. It was on Popsugar’s Best 2017 Spring Books for Women list, and made it into the latest issue of Garden & Gun (yes, we have a subscription.) Adding this to my Summer reading list and might get a jump start on it before our Boca Grande trip.
