whimsical white

As you might have seen on my instagram, we are officially on family vacay!  I pre-wrote this post so my present self is wondering if my future self is having a good time…or if the kids are already fighting.  Also wondering if I ended up liking the outfits I packed.  I am outift-packing-challenged, it’s a real thing.  But I digress.

Spotted this dream set-up by Celerie Kemble and thought it was perfect summer white.  Love everything about this.

Something about summer makes it so fun to be whimsical in fashion and design choices.  Have you noticed this?  Maybe we feel more free and creative when the weather is warm.  Found these fun pillows on sale.  You know me and pom poms.  It would be so cute to toss a few of these on an outdoor settee or porch swing.


Also realizing since I’m writing this post a week in advance that there’s a chance that the pillows (above) might sell out if they’re already on sale.  Yikes.  So here are some other cuties I found for a little more.  They’re over here.  Perfect statement pillow on a bed!



Happy Wednesday!

my favorite travel essentials

Hello!  I know it seems like I fell into a black hole since my last post, but I’ve been on the road since the end of June.  Not complaining, it’s been super fun!  From Santa Rosa Beach to Atlanta to Denver to Hunstville to Boston.  Lots of travel and all in less than three weeks.  I had plans to blog, but our schedule has been so on-the-go that it hasn’t been possible.  The good news is I’ve been making notes along the way on my favorite travel essentials (and new ones I’ve found) that I would love to share with you!  I’ll try to round up some family pics in another post for those of you interested.

These are my current travel faves that make living out of a suitcase stylish, enjoyable, and practical.  Nothing sponsored.

Below are all the links and explanations on everything, plus a few personal notes on what’s going on with us this summer.

happy 4th + fun links

Taking off to celebrate our favorite summer holiday.  This year will be unusual for our us, as two of our kiddos will be in different parts of the country on new adventures.  It’ll be fun to spend a little one-on-one time with our other two.  Fireworks and beach here we come!

Thankful for our wonderful country and all of the freedom we share.

Since I won’t be back until later next week, I’m leaving you with links to a few of my favorite goodies.  My very fave is less than $5…

weekend white

We’ve had some crazy weather this week.  It’s actually rained every day for the last three weeks.  This morning was sooooo much better than yesterday, which was scattered with tornadoes and rain storms.  We stayed home with the kids all day yesterday, since most everything was cancelled due to crazy weather.  I opened the front door early this morning and heard a choir of what sounded like a hundred frogs croaking from treetops – no birds today.  Currently dreaming of this summer scene.

Nothing like a classic, relaxing beach moment.  Speaking of which, I noticed Anthro is having a big tag sale.  Here are 3 white summer classics that caught my eye – all under $50:
