You know you’re getting old when you get really excited about a new vacuum. And judging from my happiness over my new Dyson vacuum, I’m getting old. 

But hey, aging is a privilege, and so is having a healthy home. We run our vacuum often over here thanks to Lilly and Fletcher dragging dirt inside and dropping crumbs all over the floor (all-day-long). And my new cordless vacuum from Macy’s, the Dyson V11 Torque Drive Cord-Free Vacuum to be exact, makes the clean up job SO much easier and convenient!! I’ve used Dyson vacuums for the past 14 years of my life and am a loyal fan, and this new cord free one just made me a total devotee.

It has a lot of bells and whistles, but what I love the most about this vacuum, aside from the cord free feature obviously, is it’s super deep clean suction power and that it automatically adapts to different floor types. My home is all hardwood and tile with rugs throughout – and it seamlessly and intelligently deep cleans continuously!

This Dyson vacuum comes with multiple tool head attachments (that are actually easy to attach) and even a docking station for charging! And in case you’re wondering, the battery lasts for up to 60 minutes! It also easily transforms to a handheld vacuum for furniture, the car, and stairs. 

Two more bonus features I love: 1) The acoustics are SO much quieter than what I was used to. 2) It’s slim design reaches under low furniture (I especially appreciate this in the kitchen under cabinets and our island)!

Macy’s home section is amazing! And it’s seriously the best destination for a Wedding Registry! Here are some more great home finds! I’m especially loving that Dyson Air Purifying Fan. It captures 99.97% of allergens and pollutants as small as .3 microns! I need it!

Happy Monday!! Spring has been pretty busy in Charleston so it seems like a good time to do a photo upload of life lately! Starting with Mother’s Day yesterday! We had brunch at Farfalle downtown and it was delicious as always. It was a great day at home with my sweet fam. I feel so lucky for these two!

Last week’s Weezie Towels party at Elizabeth Stuart’s beautiful home! I wore this dress and am obsessed with it!

The poolside party was absolutely exquisite!! Every detail. Weezie towels are incredible and NOW they’re making beach towels!! I just got a custom set for Coral House!

A couple of weeks ago I was in San Fransisco with my Shopstyle team and had such a nice visit, it was my first time there. What a beautiful city, I wish I could have stayed longer and explored more. Must get back!!

I brought my crossbody bag and am obsessed with it!

Meanwhile in Charleston the wisteria and jasmine is blooming and the city smells like Heaven.

Last week I attended Lindroth Design’s new store opening on King Street and the dinner was the most beautiful!! So excited the store is here! Amanda Lindroth’s brand is 100% my style. 

Been sticking with my Sweat app workouts and, y’all, the pushups and burpees and sit ups are REAL. Whew.

Eva Chen spoke at the Gibbes luncheon this year and while it was melting hot and humid that day I had a great time. The tent was gorg!! I wore my new gingham heels :) And how cute is this floral instagram backdrop??

We took our inaugural boat ride of the season! 

We celebrated my friend Molly’s birthday downtown over a beautiful brunch before High-water Fest! Stopped to pose with Josh’s pretty new car.

At High-water! Always such a fun weekend. I’m wearing Rhode Resort, one of my favorite brands!

Speaking of live music, this past Friday we celebrated my friend Ashley’s birthday on the Isle of Palms and saw the David Higgins Band play at the Windjammer and they were one of the best cover bands I’ve heard in a long time. SO fun.

We’ve been taking advantage of the amazing weather with lots of rides around the neighborhood. This time of year is sooo amazing before the crazzzzy humidity hits Charleston. It’s coming…

Celebrated this pretty momma at the prettiest baby shower! I’m wearing this red floral dress!

Okay you guys, for the past few months I’ve been working on a big project that I’m 99% sure is going to happen but it’s scary and crazy. I can’t wait to share more, but it’s been consuming so much of my time that I can’t help but acknowledge it! This photo below was during one of the design meeting with 42 Pressed! I’m sorry that this is all I’m sharing right now but I promise I’ll share more as soon as I can.

Easter selfie at my neighbor’s gorgeous home!! Wearing this blue floral maxi dress!

Lastly, I had an amazing day on Kiawah with Chappy Wrap blankets! They’re a new to me brand and now I’m wondering where they’ve been all my life! Obsessed. More pictures of this day to come, but for now check out their blankets here :) Trust me, they are amazing and you will be addicted. 

I hope your week is off to a great start! I’m en route to Coral House Harbour Island with some girlfriends this morning, so excited to be back! I’ll be posting on my instagram so follow along there :)

Fletcher made a fill in the blank style Mother’s Day book for me and one of the pages said “My mom love to shop at Amazon“. You’re right Fletch! You know me well :) Here are some adorable things I found on Amazon recently!

I hope you all have an amazing Mother’s Day weekend! I’m looking forward to spending the day with my family, fingers crossed it includes cheesecake!

Today I’m going with a Flashback Friday theme because I just stumbled upon the pictures from this day and they make me so happy. Strawberry melamine dinnerwear is my friend!! 

Melamine dinnerware is outdoor and kid friendly, and it’s come a LONG way as far as designs and patterns.

I know I know, I’m a little heavy on the dress blog posts this week, what can I say… But this new one is selling out fast so I didn’t want to wait until next week to post it! It’s absolutely adorable and it’s under $100!

The pretty green and blue floral print is what first drew me to this off the shoulder dress, and once I put it on I was really feeling it. And I love the handkerchief hem skirt!

It’s so fun to wear, and it’s super comfortable!! And it’s not just for day time either, this dress would make a great dinner dress!

round bamboo bag, rms lipstick

And, you guessed it, a dozen off the shoulder dresses are better than one!

So many options what’s a girl to do! But I doooo really love this one!
