Well, just a few more days and then it’s back to school for my kids. We’ve been getting organized and have picked up school supplies and all of that fun stuff. My kids don’t need a lot of supplies here at home (at least not that I know of yet), but I’m planning to surprise them with a few fun desk accessories when they come home from their first day. Obviously the girl supplies are more fun than the boys…

That vintage woven bag is the result of a long search I did about two weeks ago. I ended up buying this one (and love it)! And aren’t those cotton candy favors the cutest for a party?

As kids grow their needs change. We moved past cribs and toddler beds a long time ago, but for the past 2 years Fletcher has been sleeping on just a bedspring and mattress. At first it was to transition him from side rails because he’s kind of a wild sleeper and I didn’t want him to fall from a high bed. He liked sleeping pretty low to the ground though, which was fine by me. When he recently expressed interest in an actual bed I turned to ducduc because I’ve been a long time fan of their eco-friendly kids furniture.

While ducduc has a whole collection of really cool, modern furniture, what I love most about them is that you can customize each and every piece and they’re all made to order! Fletcher loved getting to help design his new alex platform bed! He insisted upon having these two large pull out drawers to stash his toys and things he wanted to keep out of his sister’s eye sight.

And I really love this little bench and storage shelf at the end of the bed! It get’s used A LOT.

All of ducduc’s pieces are made well with solid hardwood and plywood (no mdf) and are made in Connecticut. They use green materials and finishes that can be color matched to any Pantone color. They also provide white glove delivery service with assembly :)

Don’t worry, Lilly wasn’t left out. She starts 2nd grade in two weeks and has outgrown her little antique desk that we used to have in her room. We chose this ducduc cabana vanity because it doubles as a desk/vanity.

It has two drawers on each side (with ouchless, self closing drawer glides) for all of Lilly’s supplies. The middle compartment easily pops up and has a mirror, which is Lilly’s favorite part.

I love it because it’s the sort of piece that I could totally move somewhere else in our house.

I’m excited to share my recent partnership with Macy’s to highlight their big Home Sale that’s currently happening right now. It’s the perfect time to bring some fun and fashionable updates to your home :)


Charlotte Elizabeth Photographer


In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for collecting dining and entertaining pieces. My dream is to have a perfectly organized butler’s pantry full of dishes and glassware that I can mix and match for any occasion – which is totally inspired by Martha Stewart’s amazing butler’s pantry (has anyone else seen it?). I can dream. Family meals are obviously such a big part of our life (do anyone else’s kids want to eat 12 times a day?) and it keeps things fun for me to have a nice table setting.


Charlotte Elizabeth Photographer


Pretty and fun tablescapes with an emphasis on “family friendly” are key around here. Like low glassware that is easy for little hands to grip but also feels luxurious enough for sipping wine, too.


Charlotte Elizabeth Photographer


Macy’s home is a great place to find home inspiration! They carry many of my favorite brands (Kate Spade, Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren) at good prices. And right now you can get find fun, fashionable favorites at 30% – 50% off!


Charlotte Elizabeth Photographer


I love this Kate Spade dining collection because it’s versatile enough to be appropriate any time of day – breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Plus you can never go wrong with blue and white. I love it coordinated with the woven placemats and gold silverware.

It’s been about a month so it’s probably time to upload a bunch of life lately pictures :)


Last weekend I had such a fun day with friends at floatilla, which is basically a day of floating down the river on rafts. Naturally somehow Gray and I showed up in the same damn swimsuit!! Hand to heart this was not planned.

All the floats were tied up together with a boat that had a band playing. It was pretty amazing.

Sun and water has pretty much been the theme of our summer. :) These two are little fish!

(I’m wearing this black swimsuit)


Lots of time logged in out here with friends.




We managed a few days at Coral House on Harbour Island with our friends Adam and Anna. It was so much fun!

(I’m wearing one of my favorite rhode resort dresses)


Sitting incognito poolside wearing this stripe swimsuit.




While Anna’s baby floats around like an instagram waiting to happen. But really how cute is that flamingo float?




Harbour Island always has the prettiest gates and flowers.




Found a new home in the kitchen for our tequila sign.





Pretty Mirth floor at Coral House.

Took a boat to see the pigs. So ridiculous and cute. I was terrified to actually let them eat out of my hand. I have a video but there is no way I’m ever showing it.

I feel like these nap photos are becoming a thing for us :)

Spoleto finale at Middleton Plantation. Such a fun annual concert.




We were in FL for a few days for a family wedding – it was real hot but so much fun!




I’m wearing a similar dress to this one, these gumball earrings, these blue sandals, and this banana clutch.

Had another installment with my Kiawah group at Jess’s family beach house. I had an astrology reading (found out I should try doing fire chants – I think I should), and just had an all around great time with some pretty amazing Charleston lady friends.

New Hart tassel earrings :)




Dinner at one of our favorite family spots, Vintage! It’s so cute and they have amazing pizza.




Made it out to brunch with these real pretty girlfriends. I’m wearing a Roberta Roller Rabbit dress.




Staying up late night hunting for crabs :)





My most favorite skincare line ever – True Botanicals – just came out with a new collection called Basics, which is anything but. I’ve used TB for over a year and legit think it’s the best products I’ve ever used on my skin.

And my happiest face for just being in Charleston after a few too many nights out of town this summer. It really is my favorite place ever.




And I’m wearing this dress which I have in 2 colors and love. Love that little lindroth birkin basket, too :)
