Hello! I am on my way back from Mexico as I write this post… apologies for the delay. I scheduled most of my content before I left, but this piece is a bit more timely, not something you can schedule ahead of time. I’d thought I’d have at least a pocket or two of Internet service to write this post but the signal was pretty bad – beyond sending text messages and (weirdly!) posting Instagram stories, I was pretty much out of commission. I was on Isla Holbox for my friend Becca’s birthday celebration. It’s a HIKE to get there but it’s such a pretty place.
I will share more of what we did, photos, COVID + safety stuff, etc. on the blog this week. In the meantime I am really looking forward to being home in Charleston for the tail end of LDW for a few fun things with my family and friends here. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great – enjoy the long weekend.

What’s happening in Texas and how to help.
WOW – Mackenzie’s backyard makeover looks SO great.
I ordered this beautiful yellow floral dress this week. Think it will be so pretty with tan boots/booties once the weather cools down. It looks roomy so I went with a small.
These striped pajamas are so fun, and a great price too. I sized up!
The secret to happiness at work.

This tiered mini dress is SO pretty. (I’d layer it under a navy blazer for fall).
This Charleston home is incredible.
I thought that this DIY phone case was so clever (it looks really professional too!).
Love these braided sandals. The tan is in my cart.
I brought this navy blue polka dot dress to Mexico and while I forgot to take a pic, it’s pretty perfect. So cute and comfortable. Runs TTS.
A fun, easy, (and very pink!) rental bedroom makeover.
On the demise of the girlboss (still my least favorite expression!!).
Once I’m settled back home, I can’t wait for Only Murders!!!!
I’m really excited about the whole Bobbi Brown x Ulla Johnson collab, but especially this shadow stick.
Liz’s zucchini bread recipe looks so yummy.
I looove the look of this varsity cotton cardigan. The tan is so chic.
Why being bored isn’t always bad.
I have been SUPER into this whipped greens cleanser from Farmacy. Perfect for when I need a deep cleanse (it also gets all the sunscreen off!).
I’ve always wanted to go to Asheville, especially to stay HERE.
Is sparkling water good for you?
This $49 shirt jacket is so cute. I also love the powder blue!
Oh I think I neeeeeed the new Dyson hairdryer attachment!
Why is everything SEA makes so downright perfect? Contemplating splurging on this dream of a maxi dress!
