Office Space

Office Space

I just got my new rug in from ruggable and I could not wait to share it with you guys! Before I get started, I wanted to mention that you can use my code: FUNBEARY10 for 10% off your ruggable order! I picked this beauty because I love the vintage pattern and the muted colors throughout. I picked the largest size 8X10 because my office is a fairly large space and I wanted it to catch everyones eye that walks by. I also wanted a large rug because I use it to take flat lays on for my Boutique & my poshmark account (as seen in my last photo). It also is the main backdrop in my selfie photos for outfits that I take.

One of the main reasons I love ruggable is because their rugs are super light weight and washable! Your order comes with two different pieces – the thin rug topper you select and a black latex free material (the same thing used for yoga mats) velcro like bottom making it a nonslip. It’s super easy to install and to take up when you need to wash it. I Love this rug so much I’m already looking at the next one I’m going to purchase for my master bedroom!

Hope you guys enjoyed this quick new home decor find!

Family Beach Photos

Family Beach Photos

While on our family vacation in St. Augustine, Florida this year I booked a family photo shoot with Dana Tilton Photography and I am so impressed with how they turned out! They were everything I dreamed of and more! Since Kade just turned one I wanted to get family shots with his grandparents and great grandma for memory keepsakes! Dana was such a pleasure to work with and super flexible due to hurricane season in Florida and the unpredictable weather they have. We met up about 10 minutes from where we stayed at North Beach Guana River Preserve to take these amazing photos just before sunset. I just told the family to wear shades of blue and they still popped so much with the water and sky background.

Fall Farmers Market

Fall Farmers Market

We had the absolute best time yesterday at the South Carolina State Farmers Market! The last time we went Kade was just one month old so he was really entertained by all of the halloween decor. I love buying all of our pumpkins and mums from the local farmers even though they might be a little pricier than other places. We bought everything we needed for our front porch decor and then we usually plant the mums in our garden bed after. I am a huge summer beach baby but there’s also something about Fall and that crisp air that I just love so much and going to the Farmers Market every year really gets me into the season. All I was missing is my basic betch starbucks PSL! Linking some cute Fall attire below for you all. I hope you all have the best first day of October 🙂

The Perfect Game Day Outfit

The Perfect Game Day Outfit

It’s my favorite time of year! If you were born and raised in the south like me, you probably love college football game days too. Growing up in Columbia, South Carolina (home of the USC Gamecocks) I attended many home games with my friends but I ended up going away for college to Charleston, SC. Although I love the gamecocks, I was actually raised a Georgia bulldogs fan thanks to my dad who is a die hard dawg. Every year before football season starts I like to stock up on my game day gear to wear and I found the most adorable website called Stewart Simmons.

They have the cutest graphic tees which are my favorite pieces to style for games! I love graphic tees because you can dress them up with some cute boots or booties for the cooler game days but you can also dress them down with some leggings and casual sneakers. I also love that they have so many different styles and prints, from long oversized tees to short cropped tees to animal prints. Stewart Simmons carries 7 different collegiate teams (Clemson, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, FSU & Mississippi State) and they have a wide variety of sizes from XS – XXL. They also carry a few toddler and baby onesies to match with your mini!

You guys know how much I love to twin with my little man Kade! We’re a house divided when it comes to college football since Robert went to the University of South Carolina but I have to admit he’s not as die hard of a fan as I am. Hence why I was able to grab a Georgia onesie for Kade to rock this football season. We are so excited to introduce Kade to college football game days because it’s not just a sport – it’s a community and lifelong traditions to celebrate and Stewart Simmons was created on that same ideal.

Robert and I are actually headed to the first South Carolina football game here in Columbia on Saturday where they will play Eastern Illinois and I can’t wait to wear my new Cocky Cropped Boyfriend Tee (photographed in the first two photos). This top was so good I had to grab it for Georgia games too (3rd & 4th photo). I’ll link the rest of my outfit details below in case you all want to shop those as well.

Huge thank you to Stewart Simmons for sponsoring this Game Day blog post and giving me a discount code for all of you! Use code: AB20 for 20% off your entire order. I hope you all enjoyed it!

I just wanted to do a quick recap of our weekend stay at 20 South Battery – one of the most historic buildings in Charleston, South Carolina. Built in 1843 as a private mansion and styled through the years to become the shining example of Charlestonian architecture you see today, this intimate, eleven-room boutique hotel of
20 South Battery is a singular way to experience history in modern luxury accommodations. [reference from their website] I attended their grand opening Gatsby party and was able to meet the owners and so many other sweet and inspiring souls. We had the absolute best night and I was so thoroughly impressed by how well preserved the owners kept the mansion even after all of the renovating they had to do. This place is absolutely stunning and the staff were always so nice and helpful anytime of the day. I promise you will get a true authentic Charlestown experience if you stay here, not the mention the prices are super affordable. It is located on the Battery which is walking distance to all of the infamous tourist spots downtown like the pineapple fountain, rainbow row, the Charleston city market and so many awesome stores and restaurants! They also have a gorgeous 3,200 sq. ft. garden out back that you can rent out for any events you may want like a small intimate wedding, bridal shower brunch, or birthday party. Last but not least I wanted to link my emerald green fringe Gatsby dress for you all here.
