4th of July Beauty Ideas To Add Some Sparkle To Your Outfit

Happy 4th of July Eve!!! The fourth has always been one of my favorite holidays and I’m lucky that this year one of my closest friends is driving ¬†four hours to spend just a couple of days with me. I’ve (finally) figured out what I’m going to wear for the actual day and at the lake, but more posts will come on that tomorrow or later this week as a recap. If you still are at a loss for what to wear make sure you check out this post of mine! In this previous post, I talked about cute outfits […]

National Sunglasses Day Inspo

Happy National Sunglasses Dayūüē∂ÔłŹ¬†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. […]

Feminine Outfit for Art Fair

Happy Saturday!! Today I ventured to the downtown to visit a local art fair with my mom. The weather was so beautiful and perfect for walking along the streets looking at the vendors!! I was at first a bit worried that I’d be too cold in my shorts and tank top, but ended up being completely fine. These shorts from Free People are my new favorites, because they look just like a skirt!! The “flowy-ness” of them adds a beautiful, feminine feel to my outfit, but I can feel safe knowing that if the breeze from the lake picks up, […]

Summertime Reading Recommendations

Now that I live in a new town, I decided that I needed a new library card, so earlier in the month I ventured into the downtown with my mom to set my account up. With all of the traveling and down time I’ve had lately, I’ve been able to get through a substantial amount of reading. But hey, I’m not complaining at all! There is nothing better than relaxing with a good book, especially on the beach, so I decided to keep you updated on what’s on my recent must-read list in hopes that it gives you some ideas […]

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 […]

Off The Shoulder Seersucker

This weekend I will be traveling to the East side of the state for a baby shower, so sadly I most likely will not be able to get any posts in. But, if you know me at all, then you know that I LOVE little kids and baby showers. The baby blue and light pink color palettes, Pinterest worthy decor, delicious food, family and friends. Really what more could you ask for in a weekend?? Needless to say, I’m beyond excited. What I’m also excited about is all of the seersucker patterns that have been popping up around every corner.

Grad Party Dresses

Ahhhh, grad party season. Where every person’s Facebook is exploding with invites to the newest class’s summer celebration and the grads are frantically searching Pinterest for how to make their party really stand out. Personally, I loved party hopping with my friends, eating all the food at each house, and seeing all of the photo collages people put up. My own grad party was unbelievably fun. We had amazing food, my friends and family, outdoor games like volleyball and corn hole, and even a dunk tank. You read that right. A huge dunk tank, where are the end of the […]
