Starting to indulge in alll of the Fall things since it’s starting to feel a little less crispy over here! 🍁🍂 Crushing hard on this sweater/sweatshirt!
When you look in the mirror, I hope you feel strong.
Not because of how “fit” or “tone” you are.
Not because of the size of your jeans or how many rings you completed on your Apple Watch that day (guilty).
But because of how our bodies were created to live, because of what our bodies can do, what we can lift, what we can go through, what we can accomplish with what we’ve been given. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s bigger than being our “prime” weight or what’s on our plate. It’s about acknowledging our Creator and all of the ways He has made us to do incredible things and respecting His talent at creating a beautiful and powerful thing like you + me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So friends, I hope you feel strong.
Liiiiiike maybe if we buy all of the fall things, it may decide to come sooner?
Can’t stay away from the seasonal flowers, candles, pumpkins and colors even though it’s still 90° here in Birmingham. Ugh. My b.
Websites and blogging and podcasts, oh my!
I feel like my heart + mind still work in “semesters” so I’m pumped for this “new year” and the excuse to buy random school supplies. It’s the simple things. 🗒📓✏️
These pants have been perfect for the more dressy-casual look because they’re linen and soooo breathable in the heat.
PLUS they’re 40% off right now 🙌🏻
Trying to wear this white ruffled wrap (say that 5 times fast 😂) dress as much as I can before Labor Day because I still don’t know how I feel about the “rule.”
Are you a follower of the white after Labor Day “rule” or a rebel?
I’d love to know!
Boos cruise ✨
Sharing dance moves, throwing kids off tubes + getting the last sunburn of the summer. Today was the best day.
Let’s just take a sec to 😍 over this top from @8.28boutique! They have the cutest selection on their online boutique and I snagged a few pieces I can’t wait to show y’all (including this brunt red top that’s PERFECT for the transition into Fall!)

I have found a staple we all must have (for more reasons that "it's just cute").
The Amahara Tote from @karamacollection is the perfect size for carrying your necessities + is REAL leather and is crafted by women lead groups in Ethiopia. I love women supporting women so of course, I was on the train with this business and all they're doing to spread Truth to all people.

My bag is the Medium Amahara Tote in "Cognac"
I love this suit for many reasons.
1. it's not too cheeky without being too grandma
2. It's made in the USA
3. there's LOTS of different patterns and designs

Welcome to Atlanta where the players play ⚾️🖤
PRO TIP: when wearing a sheer shirt (like this one) I often like to use body suits in leui of camis becuase they easily stay tucked in and don't roll up or get bunched.
Let’s just say I wasn’t ready for it.
But it was a perfect night for breakfast at midnight.
My immediate face when Thomas asked if I wanted to go get pasta 😜🍝 never been happier!!
PLUS my mother-in-love and sister-in-love are with us and we’ve been having THE MOST fun! 🙌🏻💕 ⠀⠀⠀
Hard core cheeeeeesin’ for my double scoop of earl grey + chocolate chip ice cream (new fave) and my fave straw bag! 🍦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always tell my friends to pick out sunglasses that are super fun, block the sun and aren't expensive. The worst is when you get to the beach and the sand scratches the lens. So, I buy a few cheaper pair for the summertime - that way I'm not heartbroken if anything happens to them.
Somethin' cute to throw your stuff in. It's easy to carry around, big enough to put things in but not too big that you feel like you're lugging it around.
Not all coverups have to be t-shirts and jean shorts. I mean really, jean shorts + sand + wet bathing suit is not my favorite combo. That's why I choose a flowy dress/type coverup for the beach.
Sandals are also tricky. They need to be easy to wash up, preferably cute but also comfy in case you wanted to take a walk to the pier or go on a bike ride to lunch.
Two pieces are so fun but I'm thankful that one-pieces are back in! Especially at the beach: it doesn't give the ocean any opportunity to take away any pieces (hehe). This one combines a little bit of fun and a lot of class. I love this color - super flattering on any skin tone or body shape.
DON'T FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN! Here's the deal: not all sunscreens are actually helping your skin. In fact, most have chemicals in them that are actually doing more hurt than good to your skin. I've found a sunscreen that I love and think is so super safe for the beach + whatever your day looks like. It comes in a lotion and sprays!!
If you've been around this tribe for a while, you'll know why I love these so much.
1. They smell so good
2. They can be used for any circumstance: to remove that little bit of mascara from under your eyes after swimming, refresh your pits, wipe off the sand + sweat, add a little bit of moisture back to your legs after getting some sun
3. They don't leave a stickiness to your skin, your skin is left so so soft!
Must have! Unfortunately, these aren't available online (only available at some Target on the baby isles with other wipes + diapers).
White water rafting + ice cream cones with sprinkles + tons of freckles. HELLOOOOO summer 👋🏼☀️🍦 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The most fun (and by far softest) tee for the summer is only $10 with the code “OHYES” at checkout!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we think we look like while eating popcorn vs. what we really look like 😂
Today I lived in this shirt, binge watched “Riverdale” on Netflix while working and ate popcorn by the handful for lunch. Made me feel really silly but really happy 🍿🎥 Gotta do whatcha gotta do 🤷🏼♀️
This shirt is as comfy as pjs and super fun to layer PLUS it’s only $34 (originally $68) 😍
Statement colored rompers are THE MOST FUN and this one is less than $50☀️ ⠀
