Southport, NC

Jul 18, 2016

Top, Free People. Almost exact $35 here | Shoes, here | Shorts, boutique find. Similar here & here | Bag, Target

Every year when we go to the coast for vacation, we make it a point to visit Southport, AKA where Safe Haven was filmed. It's the cutest coastal town and it is full of patriotic charm ;) It also helps that one of my family's favorite restaurants is there- Provision Company. There is also a Pro Co where we stay at Holden Beach, but it's fun to switch it up- even if you are eating crab cakes and cucumber salad...for the 78854599866 time. We ate dinner, walked around and took in the gorgeous views, and got ice cream. I probably ate my weight in ice cream last week. Anyway, I love cute little towns and this is one of my favorites in NC <3

Dress, Bohoblu c/o | Sandals, Tory Burch | Similar bag here | Hat, Free People. Similar here | Earrings, Happiness Boutique c/o (under $15!)

Wore this perfect summer dress the other day- the fabric doesn't cling and the fit is uber flattering! I also love the print, it's colorful but nothing crazy :) PS: 10% with code XOSAM!

Guys, the coast is good for the soul. There is something about being sunkissed and salty that just makes my heart sing. I have wholeheartedly enjoyed this break, I'm feeling recharged, reinspired, and remotivated. Not sure if those last two are words but I'm feeling it lol.

Beach Vibes

Jul 13, 2016

Top, Bohoblu c/o | Similar shorts here | Earrings, Nickel & Suede | Shoes, J Crew | Bag, Gucci

I wore this for our first night out for dinner at the beach. Let me tell you, it is HOT here. Like you can't wear makeup because your face will melt away hot. It's also super humid and all denim just gets gross and stretches out so it's quite miserable haha. Anyway, I love this top for summer! It was the coolest part of my outfit *literally. It's under $30 and you can get 10% off with code XOSAM !!

Top, Shein c/o | Shoes, Andre Assous c/o | Sunglasses, Karen Walker | Watch, Michele | Bag, Gucci | Jeans, AG. Similar here | Earrings, Nickel & Suede

So tassels and pompoms are perfect for summer and this top is no exception, can't beat it at $15 either. Just a heads up- the arm holes hang a little low, I had to stitch mine up some. It took all of 3 minutes and I'm used to rigging & altering clothes up anyway so it was no big deal for me. 

We are having a blast at the beach, other than it being a gajillion degrees outside it's perfect. The water is warm, today was sunny, and I got a little start on my tan. About time! Can't wait to share stories and pictures from one of our favorite places in a few days :)

What's in My Coach Saddle Bag

Jul 1, 2016

Bag, Coach c/o | Sunnies, Illesteva | Wallet, Louis Vuitton | Hydrating Toner, Triology | Parfume roller, Chloe | Lip Plumper, Dior | Lip Glow, Dior | Lip Pencil, Marc Jacobs (Primrose) | Mascara, Doucce

I always wonder what all can fit in a particular bag, so I thought this post might be helpful to those that may be considering the Coach Saddle Bag. Plus I think it's fun to see what 'necessities' girls carry around in their purses :)

So I have my beloved LV wallet, it was a gift from my husband on our honeymoon. I will carry this thing until the seams fall apart. I always have a pair of sunglasses on hand & I like to carry a few of my favorite products...just in case. Here are the faves: 

*Trilogy Toner: I LOVE this stuff. I found it at my local Whole Foods but it's also on Amazon. It smells amazing, keeps your skin balanced, and helps with that midday shine. Obsessed with this, you need it. 

*Lip Glow. It's like a chap-stick, but better. It works with your body's chemistry to give your lips a natural looking 'glow' tint and it's verrrry pretty, especially for a simple makeup look. 

*Marc Jacobs Poutliner + Dior Lip Plumper. This combo is bomb. The Poutliner in 'Primrose' is a natural looking pink but it is still pigmented so you get the look of lipstick, it just isn't too harsh. This is my go-to everyday color. 

*Doucce mascara. Honestly I only bought this because Julia from Gal Meets Glam uses it, but it is seriously the best mascara you will ever find. It makes your lashes HUGE and the formula doesn't dry out in the tube like Better Than Sex does. I swear Better than Sex only lasts me like two months because it dries out so quickly. 

Hope this post was helpful! As you can see the bag is quite roomy, I was even surprised when I laid all of this stuff out that it fit in my bag haha.
