Fringe for Fall

I snagged this romper (also comes in black) over the weekend from Bevello to wear to an engagement party for some friends of ours. It's been hot and humid over the last few weeks, and the party was outdoors at the beach, so I wanted something loose and airy so I would feel both comfortable and chic. I opted for these lace up sandals for the party but couldn't resist getting these booties for fall. I love how great of a transition piece they are. I love them with this romper but will be wearing them all the time with cropped pants once the weather cools off.

We're Engaged!

We are engaged! To say that Sunday night was perfect is an absolute understatement. If you keep up with me on Instagram or Snapchat, you know that quite a few of our friends are or were engaged so it's been a summer full of wonderful weddings and engagement parties! We had another one this past weekend, so I definitely was not suspecting anything at all.

It's no secret that I love North Carolina brands, and I absolutely adore finding a company that is based right out of Wilmington. I started following SouthHaus on Instagram awhile back, and since that initial following, SouthHaus has evolved into a store as well as offering professional services for a variety of business ventures.

Planning for Happiness

Ever since I can remember, I've loved a good paper planner. Sure, I love online project tracking tools and the reminders on my iPhone, but there are few things better when it comes to my organization than a paper planner. When it was time for a new school year to start, I was always excited to head to Barnes and Noble or anywhere that sold planners to find the perfect organizer for my year.

Work to Wedding

dress, similar shoes here and here, neverfull

Versatility - if I've said it once, I've said it a million times, but I love a good wardrobe staple that can be used for a variety of occasions. I went into J.Crew a couple of weeks ago looking for a new pair of denim shorts, and instead, I came out with this printed silk dress instead. It was more than half off, and I couldn't resist the pretty pattern. My original intent was to wear it for work, but when I got home and tried it on again, I realized how great it would be as an occasion dress as well.

Coffee Date: Volume 6

What a month it has been! July ended with a big work event and vacation to the Bahamas, and August kicked off with work prep for several more big events. In addition, Sophie has been sick off and on for the last month, which has resulted in several vet trips and us still trying to figure out what's going on. Luckily, she's back to her normal self for now, so I'm hoping we'll be avoiding the vet for a little while (although we love the everyone at our vet's office!).
