50's Housewife Chic

Went totally throwback to 50's housewife today. I felt like I should bake cakes, iron clothes, and garden. I love this high-waisted circle skirt and red bow belt with the oxford, and my love for the patriotic colors are a given. I forwent finger waves and instead went with a, in the words of my mother, "Amy Whitehouse" bun. Perfect for the 3-day hair I was sporting. Perfect combination of messy and put-together.

Essential Preppy Accessories

I've been asked a lot lately about "preppy accessories," so I've put together just a few of my favorites! A fab bag, Longchamps are perfect for toting all your stuff around. A great hat and sunglasses are a must, and as far as jewelry goes, classic is always best. A cute phone case and agenda can totally brighten your day, as well as an adorable coozie on your Diet Coke! And a ceramic Starbucks mug is obviously essential. But a totally necessary accessory, a monogram. Especially in a classic gold necklace.

Style Sunday

Lately I've been seeing tons of adorable rompers, especially some of my favorite bloggers, namely Caitlin Coving from Southern Curls & Pearls! It's a trend that's come and gone and come back again, and I think I'm ready to jump in! Here are some of my favorite styles that practically any girl can wear!

Saturday Simplicity

Today is probably one of, if not the, nicest days we've had so far this Spring. Warm enough that when the breeze blows in the shade it feels just right. Those 80° days with a nice breeze are hard to beat. Especially when spent on a front porch swing! Starting with an amazing view...country living at it's finest y'all. 

Catching up on some of my favorite reading.

Hangin' out with my little guy who...

Decided chasing a Garter Snake around would be fun...and later some blue-tail lizards.

That is until he got worn out. But today was perfect for a cat nap. 

And then out to eat with my parents! All in all, it was a pretty awesome day. Jason PR'd his 10K time at a race at Auburn University and that only made my day better! 

I hope everyone else had a wonderful Saturday, anything particularly fun or relaxing?

Friday Favorites

So, a little over a week ago, I decided to start running again. Unfortunately, I left my Asics in Alabama because I didn't think I would need them. Go figure! 

I ran the first couple days in a couple different pairs of Nike's. No good. Definitely made for looks. And maybe walking. So my Daddy came to the resume and gifted me some awesome new shoes! Brooks! We stopped by Fleet Feet in Nashville where they measure your feet, watch you walk, and suggest shoes based on needs and what they see. 

The Brooks are really comparable to my Asics but different too, and I love them! I've only run a couple days in them so I'm still breaking them in, but they definitely deserve to be my favorite this Friday! 

Stay tuned to see if I can keep it up and for future goals!

Seersucker Season Has Begun

Seersucker season started Sunday so today, I decided to pull mine out! And apparently my mom thought the same thing. She walked into the Kitchen this morning and bam. Twins. I just can't get enough of nautical things, and this spring has been no exception. My students are starting to realize my obsession without me ever saying anything. Oh whale. Anchors away!
