A Wink and A Smile

A little while back I spotted these amazing embroidered loafers on Blair of Atlantic-Pacific's Instagram and fell in LOVE!

I was even more excited to hear that these customized, monogrammed loafers convert to under $80 (they are sold in Indonesian Rupiah). I am torn between all black with a gold monogram and navy with red trim and a gold monogram.

Tomorrow morning I get to fly home to Charleston, SC and I am SO EXCITED I CAN’T STAND IT! Not only do I get to see my wonderful family and introduce them to my boyfriend, but I get to spend time in such a beautiful place. I hope everyone else has great plans to welcome summer, even if those plans include a fun summer movie and a crisp glass of wine.

I can’t stop wearing my boyfriend’s Brooks Brothers cricket sweater with light jeans similar to this photo

JCrew Factory has a pineapple shirt. Enough said. 

How Essie nail polish started. #getitgirl

I LOVE goat cheese and avocado toast.

Did you catch this amazing backyard wedding?

These 60 rare historic photos are so cool!

Have a great weekend!

I look at A LOT of weddings. Whether I’m reading blogs, scrolling through Pinterest, daydreaming about my own (not too soon, don’t get excited), or planning with my clients at work, I am constantly uncovering new ideas and images. It takes a lot to blow me away, to be honest. And then I saw this bouquet featuring my favorite color…

Which led to me to this wedding gallery on (of course) Style Me Pretty…and then to this ceremony set up…

Mind. Blown. Seriously, take the time to scroll through the whole wedding. You won’t regret it!

It seems like every season or so JCrew puts out a print that I just can’t get enough of. Recently I’ve been drooling over the Floral Cove print and when I saw the pieces listed in the sale section, I high tailed it over to the store to try things on.

The dress was a GREAT price in store, but did me absolutely no favors.

I love the silk front sweater, but it was the priciest of the bunch.

So I took advantage of free shipping when ordering in the store and ordered this silky shell that I know will pair well with everything from white jeans to a navy blazer and pencil skirt for work.

Have you found any prints you love recently?
