Real pretty right? I love all the neutral colors. We have 2 goodman pendants in our kitchen. And I really love that white/brass coffee table and the headboard. And aren’t the green silk window panels divine?

We are anxiously awaiting the start of school over here – not til after Labor Day for my little pre-schoolers. Lil and Fletch are so excited to meet their teachers and see which friends are in their classes. We’ve been looking at lunch boxes, searching high and low for the exact right glue sticks, and all that groovy stuff. I haven’t fully started back to school shopping b/c their summer clothes will do for awhile since it’s so hot here in Charleston, but I couldn’t resist these floral skinnies and fall colors at Old Navy!


Note, during this shoot Lilly kinda sorta scratched her ankle on a toy and wasn’t sure how she felt about it… hence the moody, editorial like supermodel face. Don’t worry, no force was made to take the pictures. She enjoys being behind Gray’s camera.

She obviously borrowed my sunglasses, too. Good stuff. And how cute is this pink plaid peplum blouse? I wonder if I’d fit into the xxl… Check out Old Navy’s new school arrivals right here.

Just a few pretty things that have caught my eye lately. I pulled that pink coat (pulled being blogger speak for screenshot ha) a while ago and I’m still loving it. It’s $148 and adorable.

How great is that striped top? And that leopard dress is a total steal.

Happy Wednesday! Today’s outfit post is a repeat offender for me. All the pieces are favorites in my closet and easily go together. The Frame jeans are simple, yet unique (with the bleach detail and fray ankles) and comfortable.

And this stripe shirt is just too easy to throw on with anything.

The heels are serious favorites right now. Love the black and white.

I had been trying to figure out why Gray made me stand here… didn’t take long to figure it out.
