Fam Beach Weekend

By now, you've probably figured out I have a massive family!  My mom is one of eight and we are a tight-knit group.  My grandmother rents a beach house every year for the four daughters and their kids.  We are the tightest group in the family, in my opinion.  We love each other so much and laugh and talk loud and make fun of each other.  It's the best feeling to be so blessed to be included in this bunch.  These are my people and I'm so glad I got to spend a long weekend with them! Until next time!

Mignonne Gavigan

While on my fab vacay at Figure 8 Island, I went to a pop up shop by Gena Chandler. They are a fabulous boutique located in Raleigh, for any of you North Carolina ladies!  They also ship via shopping off their Instagram posts, so check them out here!  I personally have been lusting after Mignonne Gavigan necklaces for over a year and saw they would have several.  Mama Jill and I both bought necklaces and I may or may not have added two more to my collection-sales are nothing to sneeze at!  Check out some of my favorite styles below.  
This beaut comes in black as well and is marked down from $525 to $158

I bought this at the trunk show-you can also buy an expander to make it longer!

Another trunk show purchase-but in grey and nude

Another morning waking up to such tragic events.  My heart goes out to Nice and all of France.  For me personally, the loss of innocent children is what get's to me the most.  The images are chilling along with the thought that this could happen anywhere.  Innocent events, such as watching fireworks are no longer safe, makes me incredibly sad.  The thought that everyone has to be so vigilant in what is going on around them 24/7 is another sad reality.  Mama Jill and I have a trip planned to Nice in September and my first thought to her text last night was, we're still going.  I refuse to miss out on amazing places, but it definitely makes you think more about safety precautions and makes you hyper aware of your surroundings.  I pray for the victims and their families, along with all of France.

To be like Princess Kate: Soru Jewellery

Kate Middleton aka Princess Kate is gorgeous and her style is always on point.  While watching Wimbledon this weekend, I fell in love with her earrings and stalked them down.  Her earrings below are currently out of stock, but you can be put on their wait-list.  I ordered similar ones below, but in the silver version before they went out of stock.  They have fabulous pieces and I'm excited to receive mine through the royal mail-sounds absolutely fancy!

Check out more of their earrings here!

4th of July Weekend Kick Off

Happy 4th of July weekend! This is one of my favorite holidays of the year-a time when friends come down and camp out at the beach.  Mama Jill is cooking all our faves, such as blueberry lime pound cake.  We will celebrate the actual 4th with a parade at Figure 8, drinks on the beach and big cookout followed by fireworks off the bridge.  Basically the best summer week of the year.  To top it off, I took the rest of next week off, so the blog will have a little rest.

I am loving Jon Pardi, his new album is amazing and definitely worth a listen!  His song, "Head Over Boots" is amazing-but legit, the whole album is great!

What are your plans for the weekend?  I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend!
