Happy International Women’s Day! As mother, wife, and friend it means so much to me to see women celebrated and lifted. I know I just shared these photos last week in Lilly’s Bedroom Reveal post but I want to share these three again today to highlight one of the best books Lilly and I have ever read (and we’ve read a lot!).



Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls is comprised of 100 stories about the lives of 100 extraordinary women from the past and present. All beautifully illustrated by 60 amazingly talented female artists from around the world. This book is so good that I think every girl should own it. We are getting the sequel  edition, Bedtime Stories for Rebel Girls 2, for Lilly for Easter.



“Adventure is worthwhile in itself” – Amelia Earhart. Check out the Rebel Girls books right here :)

I hope you all had a nice weekend. Our’s was busy, but fun. I can’t believe it’s already Monday! Today I’m sharing 8 of my recent purchases :)



Ruffle Sleeve Blouse – A fun update to a closet staple :) Has nice side slits for easy tucking, too!

Balconette Bra – J.Crew’s new intimates are amazing. I wore this pink bra this weekend & loved it!

Striped Swimsuit – A new suit for Lilly! It’s so sweet and I especially love the ruffle detail.

Lidstar Eye Gloss – Glossier’s latest release (devotee right here). I ordered the Moon shade.

Spiral Hair Ties – So cute that Lilly is battling me over these, also they don’t damage your hair.

Polaroid Insta Camera – Small enough to actually carry on me, no ink cartridges, & has a touch screen!

Purple Polka Dot Dress – Because I love a wrap dress, and this color is so pretty for spring.

Pedestal Vintage Style Fan – For our new home gym. Works really well and is gorgeous!

I am REALLY happy to share these pictures of Lilly’s bedroom makeover with Annie Selke. It was high time for a fresh look in here. When I asked Lilly if she would like to make over her room she gave me one of these…



Duh, Mom. Annie Selke was the perfect partner for this project because we already know and love the brand. I used a lot of AS products at Coral House! They hold up well and are easy to care for, so they’re great for a kid’s room.



It’s obvious that Lilly loves her “new” room. The bedding is SO soft. Like, so soft that I barely want to get up after bedtime stories. We knew we wanted to lighten up her room so I chose the Stone Washed Linen White Duvet Cover for her bed. It feel cozy and luxurious, and it’s machine washable and can be thrown in the dryer, too.



The Trio Coral Sheet Set is 400 thread count and has a clean but bright look. Super comfy, too. These are her new favorite sheets that she wants on her bed at all times.



Naturally Lilly wanted some more pink in her room, so the Stone Washed Linen Coral Shams were the perfect accent to pull together the linen duvet and coral edged sheets. And the Laundered Linen Coral Decorative Pillow gives a nice seamless look (plus it makes for a great body pillow).



The Citrus Shimmer Velvet Decorative Pillows pull in the green stripe of the rug. That Annie Selke makes it easy to mix & match ;)



Here’s a close up of the Josie Ticking Woven Cotton Rug. If it looks familiar, we have it at Coral House, too!



Annie Selke sent along their Odette Ostrich and it’s a big hit with Lilly!



The Washed Linen White Window Panels brighten up the room a ton and make the small space feel larger.



We love Lilly’s new room, it’s the perfect space for her to play and dream.

You guys, I can’t believe that I haven’t shared the pictures from my latest trip down to Harbour Island earlier this month. Gray, Anna, Jackie, and I had the best time – girl trips are the best! In no particular order here are some scenes from the trip.


Drinks at The Dunmore!



I’m wearing this button down mini dress, these raffia sandals, and this stripe straw bag.



Island shopping at Miss Alice’s. I’m wearing this green wrap dress.



More island shopping at Miss Mae’s.



And Blue Rooster, of course.



Strolling the alleys in the perfect dinner dress.



And a morning coffee run at my favorite, Cocoa. It’s just a block from our house so I stop in here often when I’m there.



Jackie napping at Coral House :)



Beach day!





How to have a beach body: 1) Have a body 2) Go to the beach.



I’m wearing this orange scalloped swimsuit and a similar tote right here!



Back at Coral House… where’s Gray?



Poolside drinks. I’m wearing this cotton swing dress.



Golf cart cruising.



Blue printed mini dress right here.



Anna looking pretty…



Another favorite dinner dress. Also, the best bag.



Where’s Gray and Anna?



The flowers are beginning to creep in behind the downstairs jack and jill bathroom! The vision is to have the whole fence covered so both of the vanities look out at flowers :)



Kitchen happiness in this green dress.






My pineapple hooks, I love them.



Love love love these girls. By the way, I don’t think I mentioned that Jackie surprised us down there! We got off the plane and there she was, sitting there waiting for us. It was the best surprise!!



Can’t wait to get back down there soon. Anyone interested in renting Coral House? :)

Every so often a piece speaks to me sooooo much that I dedicate an entire post to it. Such is the case with the Belgian Linen Jamaica Sofa.



These are just a few of the gorgeous colors it is available in. Isn’t it exquisite?



Check it out right here.

Happy Friday! I wanted to round off the week by sharing some cool things by some of my cool girlfriends. These amazing women are all 100%.




Lauren Lail just rolled out Library Littles and it is PRECIOUS. The collection is stylish yet relaxed and Lilly needs this set right here!





Liz Adams fiiiiinally shared her son Jack’s nursery :) It’s calm and comfortable and totally cool for a boy, I love it. Check it out (with sources) right here.





Rebecca Atwood is one of my favorite textile designers and she just launched a new bedding collection that is so good. Her sister (and my friend Grace) revealed her new bedroom complete with a $2000 bedroom giveaway. It’s preeeetty good so I highly recommend entering.





My friend Jillian just traveled to Quebec City & Montreal with her sister Sarah and it looks nothing short of  a winter magic wonderland. She put together a fantastic guide that has me dreaming of a visit.





And the super talented artist Dorothy Shain just debuted her swimwear collection for Anthropologie! It’s colorful and fun and you must see it asap. This bikini is so cute.



Have a great weekend!
