Lake Day with Lake Effect Co.

This post is dedicated to my fellow lake babies. To the people who have heard their parents lecture them about the rip current and still went out to swim anyways. (Sorry Mom!!) To those who can paddle board, wake board, skim board, surf board, and do basically anything that ends in board. To the ones who know where to go that the tourists who come to visit don’t. To those who feel just as comfortable behind the wheel of the boat as they do the wheel of a car. To the ones who were fine with jumping into the water […]

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Favorites Under $60

  Nordstrom’s annual anniversary sale opened to the general public this past weekend and boy are there some great deals!! If you aren’t familiar with the sale, in the summer they will release fall items and put them on sale before the season. That’s right – before!! As I scrolled through the pages of sale items I picked out a couple that I really liked and that I think you will too. Best part is, all are under $60 and all of these are shop-able links, so if you like what you see, you don’t need to scour Nordstrom for […]

What We Would Tell Our Younger Selves

“Despite what your feelings may be telling you, the pain you’re experiencing may be a chapter in your life, but it will not be all there is to your life. Don’t let your thoughts confuse a chapter with the whole book.” – Brittney Moses   I decided to write a different piece for Abundance of Abby. I had so many different people send in stories and it was amazing to read all of their own perspectives. At one point, I had to stop taking everyones and save them for another day and post!! I hope this blog post touches you […]

Greek Life Jewelry

Happy Thursday!! I apologize for not writing for a little bit there, I have been so busy and wasn’t feeling particularly inspired, so I wasn’t going to write half-hearted pieces just for the sake of producing content. After thinking about what I want to write in the coming weeks, I realized that a lot of high school seniors (now college freshman) will end up rushing and going through sorority recruitment, so I wanted to share my own perspective and tips in an upcoming mini “sorority series” if you will. I’m super excited to share my own experiences with everyone and […]

Brunchin’ and Beachin’

Hey everyone and Happy Thursday!! Like you know, my friend Audrey came to visit for the 4th of July. Sadly, she had to leave yesterday, but I made sure she had a really great send off for her last day here. I love showing friends and family around my new home and exploring the areas surrounding me with them. After staying up pretty late the night before, we started our morning off with a stop at the local coffee shop. Audrey actually collects coffee cup sleeves from all the places she travels, so I knew we had to stop at […]

Patriotic Pajamas, Fireworks, And A 4th of July Recap

Happy late 4th of July!! Typically, each year we have family come into town, but this year we got a new addition to the family on July 3rd, so plans couldn’t come together. (Welcome to the world Valory Constance!!) I was super lucky, however, that one of my closest friends, Audrey, could come and spend a few days with us. Before Audrey was here, I had gone shopping with my mom and picked up some new clothes and what would eventually become my fourth outfit! While out, I also got a super comfy pair of pajamas from Tommy Hilfiger. They’re […]

National Sunglasses Day Inspo

Happy National Sunglasses Day🕶️ I’ll be honest, I didn’t know this was a day until just recently, when I saw a brand using the day to promote and sell their sunglasses. There is seriously a national holiday for everything now, I swear!! Recently, I’ve been wearing a more fun pair of sunglasses from Francesca’s. They’re inexpensive and play on the cat eye style that’s grown in popularity. I’m pretty sure that I linked the correct color, but there are lighter and darker shades that accompany that specific style so I could be a little off. Some other cat eye sunglasses, that […]

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas

I absolutely love the 4th of July. The watermelon stacked so perfectly on red, white, and blue plates. The smell of fireworks and grilling in the air. The sounds of everyone laughing and enjoying the day. It’s seriously the best. While I’m not entirely sure what we have planned for the most American holiday just yet, I’m hoping that my friend Audrey is coming into town to spend it with us. Audrey’s previously spent a 4th with my family and it’s always a lot of fun. She’s been there for night swimming, sparklers, and a lot of ice cream eating. […]

Luggage I Love

I am in love with my luggage. There I said it. After I graduated high school, my mom and I both decided that it was time for me to step up my suitcase game. So long beloved hot pink suitcase that’s traveled everywhere from small sleepovers to Disney World to the Outerbanks of North Carolina and almost everywhere in between. After countless stores and online shopping I finally came across the luggage I had been searching for and essentially comparing every other piece to that we came across. I found the suitcases that seemed to scream, “Abby you’re an adult […]
