Our family has been busy enjoying summer. I can’t believe it’s already near August. I mean!! Where did it go? So I thought I’d share another life lately post. This isn’t even close to a complete picture, but here are a few snaps on my phone in random order.

 

My friend Mackenzie sent over some pretty new office supplies from her Design Darling shop. I especially love these periwinkle pens, the ksny planners, and that cute foil print.

In love with my Ladies at the Beach print.

Y’all know I’m a long time devoted fan of Callie’s Biscuits. Well they opened up a restaurant downtown, called Little Hot Biscuit, and it’s amazing.

My kids are obsessed (beyond obsessed) with their Chomp Stix. If you have kids I can’t recommend them enough.

Working on a little project for Southern Living and here are a couple of sneak peeks!

Some pretty Charleston scenes…

The kids doing what they do best, jumping. I need to replace those glass toppers on the coffee tables. Thinking maybe some square trays would be good.

My friend Sidney’s shop Eclectic Charleston looking gorgeous as always.

Some pool time with the kids.

I stopped by the Troubadour showroom for their 50% off sale. Crazy good deals – online too! Use “Spring50″ at checkout.

Flowers for a friend beautifully designed by Out Of Hand.

I found a look alike to these sandals by Steve Madden. 3 color options.

Loving these glasses and pitcher that I found at Open Door Shop.

The kids got their hair cut last week. Lilly loves to go downtown and do this, it’s so sweet. Afterwards we went for donuts, to the museum, and then to Taco Boy for lunch.

Two weekends ago Josh and I went to Union Provisions with some friends. It’s beautiful inside. I didn’t have anything that blew me away but I did enjoy everything I ate. It’s tapas style. Def worth stopping in though, I think lunch would be great with all the light pouring in.

I co-hosted a baby shower last night for a good friend who’s having a boy. I wore this Steven Alan dress, very similar one right here on sale for $70. Also, similar ladder right here. I have two of these in my house and love them for throws, towels…

Happy Monday!

I can’t help but share these pretty rugs that are on serious sale (50%+ off).

Really pretty rugs that you don’t see everywhere. Okay, you might see them a lot online, but you probably don’t see them in all your friends’ homes. Shop them all here.

 

And the Nordstrom Anniversary sale isn’t just for the fashion addicts… I found some cute home things, too. Truth be told it’s mostly towels, sheets/bedding, and candles. But maybe it’s time for a refresh?

We have a chalkboard like this and the kids love it. I like using it for parties, as well. This one on here is also magnetic. And how cute is that Vera Wang pom pom pillow? If you could use an extra or fresh set of sheets this classic set is beautiful and on major sale. And I know it’s early, but you could totally split up those Voluspa candles and gift them this holiday season as hostess gifts.

My favorite finds include this favorite tote (58% off), this silk shift dress (59% off), this black peplum top (50% off), this long sleeve blouse (63% off), the stripe tee (59% off), and this burnout tunic (66% off) is long enough for leggings. How pretty is this swing sweater (68% off)?

Earlier this month the kids and I drove down to Tybee Island (right outside of Savannah, GA) to visit with our friend Meredith and her family at her family’s beach house. Gray and her family were there, too, and we had such a nice time. We did this last summer as well (see the pictures from that trip in this post) and I can only hope we get to do it again next year. It’s a laid back sort of place and Meredith’s beach house is over 100 years old and more lovely than you can imagine. Most of it is not air conditioned, but I kind of like the charm of that (of course I say that now as I sit in the comfort of my kitchen in my air conditioned home..). Regardless, the kids had a blast. Here are some of the photos that Gray managed to snap along the way.

The kids loved exploring that big old house and we loved watching them. Thanks for the little getaway Meredith!

 

PS, Lilly’s romper is currently on sale for $14.

Well apparently it’s already that time for new fall arrivals to come pouring in. Not that I’m complaining. Fall is my favorite. Lots of girly options here. This paisley style shift dress with the sheer sleeves is the perfect mix of fall colors and feminine!

All of it. So pretty. That pink dress comes in a few different colors and is only $75! And I think I could live in that chambray dress. The leopard dress is such a classic and flattering style, plus would be great later with a blazer thrown over it. And I love that new nude color of the quilted bag.
