Gingham + Stripes: A Fun Look for the 4th

Jun 27, 2016

Happy last week of June! Can y'all believe it?? I'm so very much looking forward to this 3-day weekend because in my opinion, that's the way ALL weekends should be. Am I right? We had a pretty chill weekend over here- cooked some yummy HelloFresh meals, rented Deadpool, checked out a new beer garden, and watched lots of TV. I still don't have any official plans for the 4th, but that doesn't mean I haven't been keeping my eye out for everything red, white & blue and getting my festive look together.

My Top Sunscreen Picks for Summer

Jun 23, 2016


Now that I work in dermatology, I am super picky about what I use to protect my face and body from the sun's harmful rays. I'll admit it... I spent some time in the tanning bed in college. YIKES!! I know.  For some reason, I felt the need to be tan before sorority functions or holiday parties (before spray tans got so good/I could even afford them). As we get older, most of us realize that baking in the sun isn't the smartest idea. 

My Favorite Off-the-Shoulder Top

Oh hey Monday, we meet again. We had a beautiful weekend here in Charlotte and I had a few fun things on my agenda. On Friday, Ryan & I went to see Now You See Me 2 and y'all... you have to go see it! It's easy to be skeptical about sequels but this one was just as good as the first and the cast is amazing. On Saturday I had a girls night and we checked out City Lights, a new rooftop bar in uptown Charlotte and finished out the weekend with a pool session yesterday. Now, it's back to the grind and time for an extra large cup of coffee. Who's with me?!

The (Not So Dreaded) Seating Chart

how to make a wedding seating chart

Happy wedding Wednesday! Today I'm sharing a fun post that I wanted to write before the wedding but you know... life got a little hectic! I'm still patiently waiting for my wedding photos to come back but until then, I wanted to tell you about an awesome site that I used for my seating chart. Listen up, brides!

Summer Casual

Happy Monday, y'all! I have a confession. As I write this post, I can't help but miss my long hair. Sigh. Here's my PSA to all brides out there- do NOT to the post-wedding chop. Just resist the urge. Maybe get a trim and get used to it? I didn't even want mine this short but it kind of just happened and let's just hope it grows sooner than later. Anyways... moving on!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I went to food truck Friday (a must-do here in Charlotte), attended my friend's bridal shower, caught up on some TV shows, and got in lots of pool time. It was almost 100 degrees here this weekend so I think it's safe to say, summer's officially here!
