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.
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 🙂
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!
First and foremost, Robert and I want to give a huge thank you to Toyota for sending us to the 2020 Taxslayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, FL. You all know I drive a Jeep and Robert drives a Chevy but after this past week driving the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 has completely won us over! Aside from the gorgeous exterior this car had all of the bells and whistles you could possibly need and was so spacious inside! A few of my favorite features about this car was the huge moon roof, the remote keyless entry system with the push to start, and the day and night rear view mirror/camera. We were absolutely spoiled for a week with this car and it was a very sad day when we had to turn it back in!
During the #ToyotaTailgate experience we were able to look at the new Tacoma and Tundra trucks and Robert was super torn. He is definitely going to be in the market for a new truck soon and has had his eye on both of these options so it was perfect timing. We could not have had a better tailgate experience – we had the cutest set up, best barbecue in town, and our seats were so close to the field!! We were ultimately pulling for the underdogs (Indiana University) to win and they were up until the last quarter of the game which was so tough to watch! Meeting all of the Toyota employees was such a pleasure and they made sure everything was such a fun and easy breeze for us that weekend. I am so thankful to be a part of the Toyota family and I couldn’t recommend a better car brand to keep you safe on the roads!
I hope you enjoyed this review and definitely leave a comment with any questions you have about the car or experience!
