Boone Hall Plantation

My dream wedding location is Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, SC.
 
 
I have adored this location since seeing it in a movie I'm sure most of y'all have seen:
 
It was Allie's summer home!
 
My Pinterest Board is filled with pictures of weddings that have taken place there, and of course, my own little touches. Seriously, every image I have seen from this location are stunning:
 
Channeling Allie and Noah







 
Swoon. I can't wait til the day I decorate it for my wedding! I'm thinking lots of white, pink peonies, and monograms.
 
What's your dream wedding location? Cheers for the weekend, y'all!

New Obsession: Sleep Shirts

Lately, the only thing I have been wearing to bed are sleep shirts. They are SO comfortable, but they're also super cute! I have a pink Ralph Lauren one with white polka dots that I have almost worn out, so I'm looking to replace it with some new ones. Here are some that I am loving:
 
Ralph Lauren

DKNY
 
Ralph Lauren
 
I would totally recommend the Ralph Lauren ones to anyone looking--they fit rather large, so they don't make you feel like you're being suffocated as you sleep! I am thinking the paisley print is number one on my list!
 
Do you love sleep shirts as much as me? Have a wonderful Wednesday!

JoJo Loves You Annual Memorial Day Sale!


JoJo Loves You, a cute jewelry design studio out of Boston is having their annual Bling Memorial Day Sale!


 The sale runs May 24th-27th, and is only available on their online store.
I got a pair of mini party blings from them last year and adore them!
They have seriously become some of my favorite earrings! Here's the pair I have my eye on this year:

They're very simple, but have a lot of bling packed in them! And for $35, you can't beat it! Do you have any bling from JoJo?

Totally Toile

One pattern I'll never tire of is toile. I think some rooms take it a bit overboard, but I love it in doses, just like in these rooms:
 
Love this kid's room!





How do you feel about toile? Have a great day!

I need your help!

 
Every summer, I make a list of books I want to read, but this summer, I'm at a loss. I haven't really been keeping a running list like I usually do, and have no idea of anything I want to read! If y'all could leave me some suggestions, I'd be so appreciative!
 
Thanks, y'all!

Loving

Here are some things I'm loving this week: 

 
I tried this beer in a variety pack I put together at a local grocery store, and I love it! It has an apple taste, which will be perfect for fall! I can't wait to enjoy it on cool October nights.
 

I bought this color, E-nuf is E-nuf, at Target a few days ago and love the red pop it provides. My nails look so cheery!
 

I'm loving returning my summer drink at Starbucks, an Iced Venti 2-Splenda Black Tea. It's perfect for the hot weather.
 
(On my wishlist)

I love that I started working this week, and I can afford to return to my "summer lifestyle," as my parents call it haha. I miss getting regular mani/pedis and buying whatever my heart desires during the year, since I don't work!
 
From a margarita date with the bestie earlier this week.

I love being home and reuniting with all of my best friends! Although I love my school, there really is nothing like being home! 

What are y'all loving this week? Have a great day!

Man Candy

I don't know about y'all, but I need a mid-week pick-me-up, and what better way to achieve that than through a man candy post? Here are some of the hottest guys in Hollywood, in my opinion:
 
Luke Bryan

Chuck Bass
 
Ryan Gosling, which I think is 80% because of The Notebook.

Ryan Reynolds

Josh Duhamel


Channing Tatum

Scott Porter
 
Matthew McConaughey

Who makes the top of your list? Have a wonderful Wednesday!

A Different Kind of Summer


This summer will be a bit different for me. For the past 4 summers, I've nannied, so I've hung out for a couple of weeks before the kids got out of school, then worked until it was time for me to go back to school. Of course, the kids got on my nerves at times, but even then I realized how lucky I was to hang out at home with the kids, take them to their country club, and do fun activities with them. This summer, I have a "big girl" internship, which is a bit bittersweet. Of course, I'm excited to soak up everything I can from my internship, which is at a small marketing firm, but I will miss my nannying job, for sure!
 

I'll also be taking three classes this summer (!!!)--2 at night and one online, so this summer will be packed. My internship is full-time and started less than a week after I got home, and will go until the day before I head back to SC. I'm a bit nervous, but excited for this summer. I can't believe this is the last summer before I'm in the real world. It's crazy to think that this time next year, I will have graduated and will hopefully have a real job. I'm so excited to start this new chapter in my life, but it's also very scary! I feel incredibly blessed for the opportunities I have been given--both this summer and all of my previous summers--but it will definitely be different. I'm hoping to find a weekend to head to the beach, and of course lay out at least a couple of weekends. It will definitely be a transition, but one I'm looking forward to! Look out world, here I come!

How did y'all deal with the beginning of your transition into the "real world?" Have a fabulous day!

All White

I love color, and since I'm obviously not married and have only decorated my own space (i.e. my bedroom/dorm rooms for the past few years), I tend to decorate using lots of pink. However, lately I have become obsessed with all white rooms. Something about them just seems so airy, yet elegant. I don't know if I'll ever have an entirely white room, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy looking at them. Here are some of my favorite inspiration images:
 
Don't you just want to curl up in this comfy white bed?

Love this little sunroom!

I love the idea of a black and white photo wall.

Amazing

Such a pretty, airy lake house bedroom!

So elegant.

DREAM closet!

Do you love the all-white look? Have a wonderful day!

Salty Sea Tees

 
I recently learned about a new tshirt company, Salty Sea, all about the low-key beach lifestyle. I recently received a tee from them, and I love it! 

Here's what was in my package when it arrived! 

 
I chose the Flamingo Tee in lagoon blue. Everyone in my sorority has a slight obsession with flamingos, so as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to have it! 

Salty Sea has tons of cute tees, perfect for summer lounging, especially at the beach. Here are a few of my favorite designs:


Plain Pocket Tee


Long sleeve--love the bright, cheery green!
 
Have you heard of Salty Sea? Which tee is your favorite? Have a wonderful day!
