Friday’s Five

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset
My easy summer Friday #OOTD: a LOFT strappy cami  ‘modern kick crop’ jeans (they’re the perfect summer jean!) with my favorite Cuyana bag.

TGIF! It’s shaping up to be a working weekend for me, but I hope to squeeze in some sunshine, reading, and quality time with my Netflix queue. (I want to dive into GLOW; anyone watched it yet?)

Pretty pink roses in pretty packaging.

I had a bit of a “shoemergency” yesterday: I wore completely impractical espadrille wedges expecting a low-key day, but had to kick it into high gear to cover an under-the-weather employee. I popped into Belk between flower deliveries on a mission to find pair of comfy flats. My favorite Lucky Brand ‘Emmie’ ballet flats were on sale for $40, so I snagged a pair in this pretty bright coral leather and got back on the road. Serendipity!

Doak and I are 22 days into our new routine of walking for at least 30 minutes every day, inspired by my friend, Anne, and her 90-day challenge. It has been so great for both of us!

I love these baby Jo Malone colognes that I received as gifts-with-purchase when the brand launched at Sephora last spring. They’re the perfect size to stash in my handbag and feel like a little spritz of luxury in my day-to-day. The peony & blush suede is a feminine floral, and the basil & neroli is fresh and green.

  • 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 👖

  • 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
