Keeping Jewelry Safe During Summertime Travel

This summer, we have been traveling so much. I've flown to Nashville and Atlanta thus far and will be headed to St. Lucia after the wedding for our honeymoon, plus countless road trips to the mountains, Charleston, and more. One thing I'm always conscious of while traveling is my jewelry. While my "costume jewelry" isn't all that valuable, I have pieces that are both valuable and sentimental - which means that I am incredibly careful with them when packing!

Wedding Wednesday: 6 Weeks Away

How in the world are we only 6 weeks away from the wedding?! We've been engaged for 10 months but in so many ways I feel like Stephen just proposed. Instead, we're in the short rows of this whole wedding planning thing!

Insta Lately

Happy Monday, friends! This summer is flying by - I honestly can't believe we are already in the middle of June! I am so ready for the wedding to be here but I also want time to slow down! This season of life has flown by so quickly that I know the 47 days we have left are going to speed by.

Perfect White Romper

Well, this is the perfect white romper. I honestly just don't know if I will ever top this one. Chic, comfortable, unique - it ticks all the boxes for a great piece and now I want to wear it all the time. I bought it for my Bachelorette party and got the most compliments on it all day. Part of me wishes I had worn it to this past weekend's engagement party, but it was an outdoor event and very hot, so I opted for a sleeveless white romper (and a retro belt from the 1980s) instead.

Charleston Stripes

Happy Monday! What a weekend (and week!) we had! On Tuesday night of last week, my cousin and I flew to Atlanta for my second market trip to buy for my new store, ZIA Boutique (click here to read about my new adventure). We flew back to North Carolina on Thursday afternoon, I went back to work on Friday, and then on Saturday, Stephen and I drove down to Charleston for Shelby's stunning wedding! And on Sunday, some of my family hosted a great engagement/pre-wedding party for us. So though it was a busy week and weekend, I wouldn't have traded it for the world!

Summer Essentials

Happy Friday! Even though the weather has been unseasonably cool the last couple of days, summertime is just about here, which means it's time for a few warm weather essentials. Pool floats, sunscreen, cover-ups... the works! Some of my favorites are from last year, though I've found a few new things I'm loving for this season too.
