dirty little secret


striped boatneck tee (Beall’s Outlet, $12) | Talbots shorts (secondhand) | Style&Co wedges (Macy’s, last year) | Goorin Bros hat (m.marie boutique)


This hat may look like an innocent accessory, but it’s got a purpose — covering up my dirty, dirty hair. TMI? Maybe. But for all you busy girls that don’t have time to wash your tresses all the time, you’re not alone. Sometimes you’re just past the point of dry shampoo, and the best you can do is disguise with well-placed headwear. {Local ladies, m.marie has some seriously cute hats this season!}

I’ve been spending a lot of time this week getting the boutique organized, and it’s coming along nicely! Snapping some photos to post is on my to-do list, but it’s buried beneath lots of paperwork, handmade tags, Quickbooks tutorials, and new inventory item receipts. My amazing girlfriends have been so supportive, and they’re all cleaning out their fabulous closets to help me stock A Pretty Penny with lots of great designer pieces.

I can’t wait to share more with you guys, and I hope if you’re from these parts you’ll come and see me in the coming weeks!

  6. You look so cute and comfy! I also hide under hats due to bad hair days (like today lol).

    I talked about everyone needing good bad hair day hats in my style guide: http://youtu.be/FGlrpoPLltQ

  • Our blooming crepe myrtle + pink sunset skies. 💕
She was just a little baby tree when we planted her by our front window 13 summers ago, and now she’s as tall as the roof! #crepemyrtle #ihavethisthingwithpink #acolorstory #summernights
  • To file under Unexpected Wardrobe Staples: a snake print duster; I found this one at @topbuttons last month and put it in my #30x30remix as a wildcard. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and now I’m totally on-board the kimono/duster/light-and-easy-layering-layering-piece train! #ootd #instastyle #whatiwore #shoplocal
  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at keiralennox.com. 👖

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.
☀️😂 👵🏼
  • Found our new favorite beach getaway spot this weekend! 🌴 #lovefl
