Happy Friday, lovelies -

There's nothing I love more than soaking up the sunshine by the water.  Whether it's the pool, the lake, or the by the ocean, it's just good for the soul.  This L*Space bikini has always been one of my favorites!  (I also love THIS super similar style with a crochet back!)  The wrap detail on the top is so flattering and I love the cutouts on the bottoms.  (Next, I would love to have this swimsuit in white or black!)  Bloomingdales has a great selection of swimsuits for every body type and style along with great brands like Trina Turk, Mara Hoffman, Nanette Lepore, 6 Shore Road by Pooja and of course, L*Space!

I hope you all have a great weekend!  I'm excited to relax with family and friends + enjoy the beautiful weather out!  It's going to be in the high 80's and I love every second of it!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

Hi there, lovelies - 

I hope you're all having a great week so far!  We're SO close to the weekend!!  I apologize for the late blog post today!  I feel like we've had so much going on the past few days, so I've been trying to get a ton of things done during the day and it's just not happening lately!  But, I'm excited to share a much needed Insta-lately with you all today!  SO many great pieces for Spring/Summer, as well as a few of my favorite classics.  (And a few similars, too!)

I am even MORE excited to share some really exciting news with you today!  Yesterday marked one week from my surgery and I'm healing really well, so I'm so thankful for that.  The doctor called me yesterday to give me the pathology results and my lump was BENIGN!!  We are beyond thankful for answered prayer and couldn't be more excited about the news.  Waiting is the hardest part and the relief I immediately felt yesterday was unexplainable.  Thank you ALL for your support throughout this process.  I'm so glad we could all relate on something more personal, rather than material, and I love the For All Things Lovely family that has been cultivated over the last four years.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

After almost a year of redecorating our home, we are SO excited to share it with you all!!  If you're an avid reader of SMP Living like I am, you might have seen the feature on Monday, but I'm beyond excited to finally share it right here on For All Things Lovely, too!

Because John and I were so young when we got married and bought our home together, we decorated with whatever we could afford at the time, as well as quite a few hand-me-downs and antiques (which we love).  I am so fortunate that J is such a handy man and can literally fix anything.  He learned it all from his dad, who can also make anything.  So, in the first couple of years of fixing up our home, we put a lot of time and effort into the bones of the house.  We completely remodeled the kitchen, painted the entire house, changed out every single light fixture, closed in the front porch, replaced the old, wooden windows with beautiful new ones, got a new roof and replaced all of the interior doors.   So I think it's safe to say we took a lot of pride in our new home and wanted to make it ours.  As I've mentioned before, it's one of my absolute favorite times to look back on in our life so far.  We would wake up, go to work, come home and work on the house.  Most evenings, that included ordering take out, eating on the floor off of paper plates, and super late nights trying to finish everything before morning.  And we loved every single minute of it.  SO many laughs, not having a clue what we were doing, but figuring it all out together.

Fast forward to almost seven years later and we're still loving our little, cozy home!  After growing up (a little) and  our styles changing (a lot), we decided to redecorate our home!  When we purged, we really purged!!  We literally went room by room and took every single thing out, and never took it back in.  Okay, maybe 5-7 things total throughout the house, but not much!  One again, we repainted the entire house, switched out light fixtures and upgraded our decor.  We decided we wanted to invest in a few things we knew we wanted, before kids, which may or may not have been the smartest thing...but we did it!  Haha.

I knew from the beginning that I wanted three things: light, airy, and clean with a modern farmhouse theme.  Being from the south, we both love southern accents throughout our home that really make it cozy and special to us.  However, I wanted to do all of that with really light, beautiful colors.  So our neutral, light gray palette came to life with a few gold accents, distressed grey wood, and a french flair.  A few of my favorite things throughout the house: our travel gallery wall of each place we've been together (yes, we have some additions to make!), my vintage Gucci ashtray on our coffee table, our french door china cabinet full of beautiful dishes, our guest room furniture that we found in an old barn, every single horse photo or figurine, and my couture fashion books that are all throughout the house.  We both LOVE to entertain, cook dinner, and enjoy time with our family and friends making memories in our home, so we couldn't be happier with the outcome.  I hope you all love it, too!

I've listed every. single. source. I could possibly think of, but if there's something you see not listed, definitely let me know!  I'm happy to answer any questions, just leave me a comment below or email me at!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
