PUT A BOW ON IT

True story: I love a good theme party. So, when the invite came for Mackenzie and Will’s welcome dinner, I was ecstatic to see the attire was “wear white.” I took on the challenge to find the perfect white dress.

SISTER SISTER

If there is one thing I always wanted when I was little, it was a sister. So, when LOFT asked to me to help celebrate National Sisters Day, I knew I could count on my bestie, Mackenzie to play sisters for the day.

SUMMER DRESSES FOR DAY AND NIGHT

Linen Reformation Dress

First, I want to say a quick thank you all for the kind birthday messages yesterday.  My 29th year is off to a great start! I am so grateful for my amazing friends and family that made me feel soo loved yesterday. Mackenzie even surprised me by booking a massage at the White Elephant. It was the perfect mid-day treat!

LESSONS FROM MY 20s

Navy Eyelet Top from JCrew

Today is the last day before the last year of my 20s. How did I get here? Most of the time I still feel like that 18 year old girl saying goodbye to her parents as they dropped me off at college.  How has it been ten years since that day? Tomorrow, I turn 29 and I have so many feelings about my last year of my 20s.

NANTUCKET BUCKET LIST

Kule Stripes in Nantucket

When we started our trip from Dallas to Nantucket on the last day of June, I jotted down a few bucket list of items we wanted to check off before leaving the island.  Mackenzie and her family have been coming to the island since the 1880s–well, not specifically Mackenzie, but we knew we were in good hands. The list was pretty short because I knew we would add things to our list as the month progressed.

HYDRANGEA HEAVEN

White Tuckernuck Skirt

When it came to packing for Nantucket, I pretty much stuck with a neutral palette. Think: lots of white, cream, navy, and gray.  Since we were driving and knew I could pack more than my usual carry-on, I could have easily gone overboard. Instead, I thoughtfully planned each outfit and decided I would only bring items in my closet that I truly love. After my major Marie Kondo moment last month, it made packing a breeze.

10 (LIGHT) TOPS FOR ANY SEASON

There is nothing more I have loved than escaping the Dallas heat this summer. The idea of wearing jeans in July normally sounds dreadful, but in Nantucket, the temps drop at night and jeans and a top are ideal for dinner outside.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially starts this Friday and if you read this post, you know how many good Fall new arrivals are included in the sale.  This top is one of my favorite purchases I made! I am all about instant gratification and love that I can wear this throughout the rest of the summer with jeans, high-waisted shorts or a cute mini skirt.
