Good morning! A little life lately…


When your friend’s front steps resemble Monet’s garden you stop for a photo, right? (Lucy, Gray, Julia)




This was the beautiful tablescape that Lucy set for dinner that night, so pretty! Similar plates on sale here.




Happy little Charleston spot.




Last weekend at the Sewe Gala wearing this dress. Okay it isn’t actually that dress, it’s this one, but it might as well be and it’s less expensive! PS this was a really bad hair night.




Close up…




Sweet Lilly during our morning breakfast fun last weekend.




Pretty Charleston.




Celebrating our friend Haskell’s birthday at Bowen’s Island. (Charlotte, Haskell, me, and Gray).




And with Jackie and Gray.




Close up of those peach earrings. Wearing this lipstick.




You all know XBB is my favorite. The mapo dou fu is my long time favorite but I’ve been loving the pad kra pow a lot lately.




Pretty sky at my in-law’s house.




Fun new J.Crew shoes!




And I can’t wait to wear this outfit soon! This one shoulder dress and these block heels.




Hope you all have a great day!

Yesterday I had so much fun taking over the Draper James instagram account to share stories from the Boone Hall Oyster Festival! Josh and I were married at Boone Hall so I love to get back there whenever I can (even if for an oyster festival when I’m allergic to oysters). It was really so much fun! How fun is this stripe shirt (love the little flare sleeves)!

I wore this cream jacket, this stripe top, this cylinder bag, tassel earrings, this prong ring, and these sunglasses.




I visited my friend Molly at their new house downtown and you guys, it is a complete dream. Here are just a couple of my favorite rooms.

Molly & her husband Ted own Babiators – the cute sunglasses for kids! These navigators are their latest design :)

Last Thursday I got together with some Charleston friends for an overnight on Wadamalaw Island and had such a nice. It’s so peaceful out there! We are trying to make these get togethers happen 4 times a year to connect! It’s such an inspiring group.

How lovely is this pink prong ring by my friend Jane Pope? Would be the perfect Valentines accessory…

We’ve had some rainy weather in Charleston this month, but overall I can’t complain about our January. Wearing a navy trench, similar rainboots, and this umbrella.

My friend Lauren just created my favorite dry shampoo EVER. Check it out here.

Our friends Anna and Adam had a baby and she is the most precious!!




Recent outfit – this one shoulder stripe top, this studded bag, these navy flats.

Lastly, I can’t share this life lately post and not acknowledge the state of despair that many are feeling over decisions being made in Washington. I generally try to stay away from political talk here on the blog in an effort to keep it a fun place, but these topics are on my mind many times throughout each day. I’m dreaming of a happier world and am sending lots of love out to it.
