I’m so excited to share my recent partnership with Serena & Lily with you today. Our master bathroom is an important part of our home and I’m so happy with our recent updates. It feels good to switch things up and I’m loving the neutral palette.



As a reminder, we use to have a lot of pink in here. I love pink, obviously. But it was time for a little change.



This new look feels really clean and calm to me. And really, there is just something special about fresh white towels, am I right? If you’ve ever considered the Calistoga Bath towels, let me assure you, they’re just as sumptuous and dreamy as you’ve imagined. I always choose white towels because they’re so easy to clean and feel the most fresh.



Close up of the scalloped capiz shell chandelier. Feminine, but not overly so. It gives the room this really lovely glow, too.



I’ve always loved Serena & Lily’s dip-dyed furniture. This little stool is the perfect spot to sit soaps for the bath, this way everything you need is within reach.



And the teak dip-dyed ladder makes a great spot for storing my new FAVORITE throws. I’ve coveted all of Serena & Lily’s Casablanca pom throws for too long. These are perfect for curling up with on the sofa or for layering over the end of beds. But I also love them displayed like this.



Lilly and Fletcher both love the new Ahoy bath mat. Soft and clean and so easy to just throw in the wash, which is so important when it comes to bath mats.



Speaking of the wash, isn’t this stripe basket fantastic? We’re using it as a laundry basket, but it’s great for all sorts of storage. I love buying versatile items that can be used in multiple ways in multiple spaces.



Light, white, and bright… just how I love it. Check out Serena & Lily’s full new collection right here!

5 Things today – starting with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. If you haven’t started watching it yet I highly recommend it. It’s fantastic. So fantastic.



Anthropologie’s House & Home Event is on – 20% off full price furniture, bedding, and decor! I could list a hundred things I want but in an interest to keep this nice and clean let’s go with this tassel blanket and, you guys, the most delightful pink sofa.



Renee Bouchon just released a collection of paintings on Furbish and there are a couple of good ones left! Check them out here.



After nearly a month hiatus from working out I’m heading back to pilates this morning (thank heavens). It is SO hard to get away to exercise when the kids are out of school. Need a workout refresh? Amazon has a really great Gear Refresh feature right now. Great things like my favorite leggings, fresh white sneakers, and this fleece jacket is priced well and some in over 20 colors!



My collection of Solid & Striped swimsuits just grew. Have you seen the new styles? I’m loving all of them, and the belted one pieces especially. I ordered this one (I wear a medium in their suits, btw). Bonus points, they shot the collection on Harbour Island :)

Good morning from snowy Charleston! We had the most delightful snowfall last week and it has just been the most magical few days here. Charleston sure makes a beautiful back drop, don’t you think?



That gorgeous photo up there was taken by Sarah McCay. Meanwhile I was at home with the kids having the best time ever. Similar black puffer coat here.



Our yard turned into a winter wonderland.



We made a sled out of tupperware storage box lid and pulled the kids behind the golf cart… not the coolest, but it worked.



I’ve broken out all of my coats and furry scarves. Similar pink coat and fur scarf here. My favorite black boots are here – I want all the colors.



Weird that just a week before it was warm enough to read on the front porch on short sleeves…



Our Christmas porch…



I’ll be sad when we take it down. Which probably needs to happen soon… Similar fur scarf here.



We had a fantastic Christmas in Kentucky and Indiana.



It snowed a little bit while we were there, just flurries, but the kids were pretty psyched.



Our Christmas card this year – we got it from Minted. We took this photo in Harbour Island over Thanksgiving. Lilly found this fallen branch and “planted” it in the sand and it seemed Christmas tree worthy…



And I leave you today with my favorite earrings



Some more colors riiiiight here!

I hope you all had a great NYE. We had some friends here and took it pretty easy. The kids all had a blast together. And yesterday Lilly and I caught up on all the new Fuller House episodes. We LOVE it. Anyone else?


Like many, at the beginning of each year I set some goals for myself for the year ahead. It’s a good time to sort of check in and evaluate yourself. My list of goals this year is extensive, with the desire to be a loving and present mom, wife, and friend at the top of my list. And in an effort to not bore you all too much I’m sharing just a few “mini-goals” for the year.




  • Be sillier. Exhibit A above.
  • Start my morning with a healthier breakfast option, like my favorite smoothies. I’m guilty of skipping breakfast too often and let coffee take it’s place.
  • Finally buy the sandals I’ve been coveting. In nude.
  • Go for more long walks. It’s one of my favorite activities to do solo with my headphones and a great playlist. And I’m due for a fresh pair of supportive shoes – how awesome are these flashback sneakers?
  • Pack my luggage and travel somewhere I haven’t been. New Orleans seems to be calling me. I really want to make it happen in 2018.
  • Organize my tupperware cabinet with this storage bowl set. I love the color combos. Just need a sale.
  • Read more. Next on my list is this book recommended by my friend Grace.
  • Entertain at home more. I just ordered these glasses (on sale!) & they’re begging to be used.
  • Spend as much time as I can at Coral House. Pretty much my favorite place.


What’s on your list of goals for the year?

Merry Christmas, Everyone! We are with family in Kentucky and Indiana, hence the delayed Christmas post. We’re having a wonderful time and the kids are having a blast with their cousins, it’s so nice to get to see everyone.


We took this photo over Thanksgiving on Harbour Island. Lilly found this branch and planted it and soon decided it was a Christmas tree. It seemed the natural Christmas card choice.



From the bottom of my heart, thank you to each and every one of you who read my blog. What started as a hobby in 2010 has become an even more important part of my life than I ever thought it would be. Sharing found favorite things makes my heart the happiest. Thank you for reading.
