Day Dreaming...

Good Morning Loves,

So, in lieu of this beautiful weather we've been having, I've been constantly daydreaming about laying on a white sandy beach somewhere. (If you couldn't guess that already from yesterday's post!)  So today, instead of going to work, I'd like to think that I'm:

Relaxing beside this beautiful beach:
clear beach water

In this swimsuit cover up:

Drinking this Strawberry Lemonade:

With my new Rebecca Minkoff Sandals on:

And of course, a Hermes bracelet to match:

Reading this:

And after a leisurely day, getting ready for this with friends & family: - dinner on the beach

However, the reality of my day is this:

Heading to work! :) But, hey, a girl can dream right?  Have a lovely day, ladies!

Weekend Getaways

Good Morning!

Happy Wednesday!  We got to the middle of the week pretty quick with lounging around on Monday, huh?  Unfortunately, we had too much going on to take off on a getaway trip this past Holiday weekend, but it definitely made me want to start planning one!  We head to the beach every chance we get and sometimes that means spontaneous decision making and last minute packing.  I've thrown together a short list of must-have items for a mini vacay by the water:

Bits of the Week

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you have all had a wonderful week!  I'm so glad it's Friday and looking forward to a fun Memorial Day weekend ahead.  Here's a quick look at what's been going on lately:

The. Best. Show. Ever. Created. REVENGE! This week was the Season Finale and I'm seriously going to have withdraws for 3 months while it's off for the Summer. 

Loving my new Chevron Bracelet.

Fed the ducks at Furman--but I'm pretty sure they knew the bread expired a couple of days ago. :/

New J. Crew Magazine, nothing better.

I'm a little obsessed with buying/writing cards. Loving these new Jonathan Adler cards from Swoozie's.

Sweet Lola Belle. She's adorable and I'm a proud Mamma.   :)

I'm in love with anything Rebecca Minkoff.  And I'm in love with travel accessories.  Which makes this my perfect make up bag stuffed full with all my favorite beauty products. (Make Up Post coming soon!)

Planted a few Succulents for our living room, they're my favorite for inside.

I was so excited to find this in the mail box this week--I can't wait for our trip to Haiti this Summer!

And thanks to my sweet cousin, Kirby, I have this glittery Passport case to carry it in! Again, loving the travel accessories...

I've been a little behind on my Wardrobe Posts, but I promise more are coming soon!

Cheers to a 3 Day Weekend!!

Jimmy Choo

Happy Hump Day!

I love Wednesday's--after today, it's all down hill from here 'til the weekend!  I follow a lot of fashion blogs and I'm constantly doing research to find new ideas to post on here.  I came across a new blog yesterday and she posted photos of the new Jimmy Choo store in San Fran that opened this past weekend.  Let me just say-- oh. my. gosh.  I was drooling while looking at the inside of this store.  Unfortunately, we don't have a Jimmy Choo in Greenville, but I'm pretty sure if we did, I would be taking my lunch break in their lobby.  I just had to post these uh-mazing photos to share with you guys:

Gorgeous, right?  If I'm lucky, this is what my mansion in Heaven will look like.  
Thanks to 9to5Chic for sharing her photos!

Have a lovely day!

A Little Tory...

Hello Lovelies,

One of my favorite things is buying an accessory.  I cannot tell you how excited I get about the smallest little thing.  Of course, shoes and jewelry are a no brainer, but beach bags, passport holders, clutches, ipad cases--they all make the list too.  Tory Burch has some of the best "little accessories" out this Summer that are sure to turn your outfit from good to great, stay on trend and they're perfect for holding all of those little things we loose in our bags daily.  Here are a few of my faves:

Striped Logo Stud Earrings,default,pd.html?dwvar_21125599_size=OS_21125599_color=657=13=accessories-jewelry
Tory Burch envelope clutch
Tory Burch Adalyn Clutch
Tory Burch iPad Case
you go Tory Burch
Tory Burch Dipped Canvas Beach Tote Bag
Tory Burch Robinson Zip Coin Case - StyleSays
Tory Burch Jewelry Case
Tory Burch Passport Cover
Tory Burch Patent Leather Flip Flops

Everything this Season is about color, color, color--and Tory has the best!  Have a lovely Tuesday!

Guest Post

Good Morning Loves!

I have met so many fun girls while entering the blogging world and I have asked one of them to do a guest post for me today.  Her name is Natalie (aka Nat) and she is originally from Annapolis, MD, but now lives on the East Coast.  She loves fashion, interior design, the beach and mexican food.  She is a corporate event planner by day but uses blogging as an outlet to share her life and love of fashion and interior design to her followers.  Click here to view her Blog--East Coast Chic!

Hi Everyone! I’m Natalie and I’m so excited that Megan invited me here today to her amazing blog to share my summer wishlist!  

I don’t know about you all but once the weather starts to get warm around here I start gathering my summer wish list, I mean it’s a new season so it means new things I need to buy, right? That’s how I try to explain it to my husband at least!

So here goes nothing…

1. Gucci Wayfayer Sunglasses-I tried them on at Nordstrom and they are even more fabulous in person.

2. Tory Burch large straw tote- I need a new beach bag and this one is perfect! I like my beach bags to be big enough to fit at least one towel, my kindle, magazines, my sunscreen, and maybe a bottle of wine :)

3. J.Crew polka dot bikini- J.Crew is always my go-to for bathing suits. I've tried the cheaper route with Target and Victoria's Secret but I swear it's worth dropping a little bit more money on a J.Crew suit because they will last for years!

4. Jack Rogers Aquarius Quadrille  navajo sandals- I'm a preppy girl at heart and Jack Rogers are my go-to summer sandals. When I heard about this collaboration I knew I would have to get a pair  and these would be the perfect addition!

5. Anthropologie Viscid Watch- I'm in desperate need of a summer watch and this is perfect for the season- the mint and gold would combination are so in right now!

I just want to say thanks again to Megan for having me over today to share my wishlist with you all!

Snapshots Of The Week:

Good Morning Loves & Happy Friday,

I hope you've all had a lovely week!!  My week has been fun, crazy, busy and exciting all at the same time, so I thought today instead of Friday Favorites, I would post a few snapshots of my week.

Starting with:
How cute is this cup? Found this at Swoozie's and had to have it. :)

Spent a little time at the Nail Salon! Loving this Gel Polish, this stuff is no joke-it lasts for 3 weeks!

Not as glamorous as most shoes, but hey, a girl's got to work out, right?

Of course, it's an easy motivator when you have this pretty much in your backyard.

I loved when a little girl walked up to me at Church and said "Megan, you sure do like a lot of jewelry don't you??" HA! Gotta love layering on the jewels. :)

My new favorite pizza of ALL time--Pimento Cheese Pizza @ Brixx...don't hate it until you try it!

And...this is what it looked like once I demolished it...hints, the work out.

This was in my Fortune Cookie Wednesday night, how perfect is this?! I can only hope this one comes true...I'm pretty sure I got too excited squealed when I opened it. :)

J and I have been trying to eat a little healthier for dinner rather than going out. (Don't worry, the pizza above was lunch, it doesn't count.)

And of course, I have to spend quality time with Lola Belle on the couch.  This dog is so spoiled it's not even funny--which is just the way I like it. How cute is she? :)

Well loves, that's my week in a nutshell---Cheers to a fun weekend ahead!
