Spring in Charleston is just so pretty…

We arrived in Charleston on Friday afternoon and are here for a few more days just soaking up time with family, and it’s the best. Truly just one big slumber party! We’ve had so much fun already and I’m looking forward to another few days together.

On Friday night after we put the kids down we headed over to our friend Miguel’s house for drinks and to say we had fun would be an understatement! Miguel is SO talented, if you don’t follow him and you love a cocktail, you need to. He’s the best at what he does, and he and his wife are the kindest humans. We had so much fun catching up!

Then of course, we couldn’t let all the food in Charleston go untouched… so on Saturday afternoon we ate at Harken and took a long walk along the water with friends. Later (after baby naps*) we pulled ourselves together (this is what I wore!) and hit the town. We stopped Bin 152 for pre-dinner drinks, it was truly so lovely! After drinks we ended up at 167 Raw which was everything it’s hyped to be.

And yesterday we spent a cozy morning at our favorite Babas on Cannon and spent the rest of the afternoon snuggled up by the fire watching movies. It’s been the best weekend catching up with family and friends. So grateful to have a few more days together!

* Truly, if you have a little one, I cannot, and I seriously cannot, recommend the Slumber Pod enough. Laurens has slept like an actual baby. I’m Slumber Pod’s BIGGEST fan. Also, this is our travel crib and we absolutely love it!

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our weekend, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few new obsessions…


Countdown is on!

It’s officially dress launch week and I seriously cannot even believe it’s actually here. My collection with Abbey Glass is launching at 10:00am EST on Thursday… think all the FLORALS! Love the daisy theme and this blue dress is HEAVEN. We will be sharing sneak peeks all week, but these dresses are so good! I hope you love them.

Garden Party Vibes

How great are these pretty floral candle sticks?! If this doesn’t make you want to throw a garden party than I don’t know what does! Can you imagine a handful of these in between a bit of green moss and tea lights?! Prettiest!

No Pinching!

I love love love this subtle green gingham blouse. Perfect for this upcoming Friday, and beyond! So cute tucked in and tucked out. Also, it would make such a cute coverup… especially with matching sunnies, you know I love a good cat eye!

Basket Case

For some reason I am frozen on purchasing an Easter basket. FROZEN. It’s probably because my mom still pulls out my and my sister’s Easter baskets every year from when we were little… they are adorable floppy little bunnies. So I just feel like I have to get it right because Laurens will have it for forever, but in all reality he’s not even old enough to care! BUY THE BASKET and move on, right?! This is the one I have in my cart!

Make My Heart Sparkle

Haverhill (one of my faves!) just launched a diamond heart in their collection and I am FLIPPING over it. I wear my letter heart all the time… I actually have it on right now! But I’m obsessed with the way you can customize this one. Like you can go full diamonds OR you can do birthstones. LOVE!
