2 Days, 2 OOTDs

 
I had another post prepped for today, but I'll postpone it until next week.  I wanted to share info on these two recent outfits instead, as many of you have asked where some of it is from, based on my most recent IG pics.  Here you go...

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

TGIF!

Strawberry-Lemon Mojitos + Summer Jewelry Faves


This time of year we have an abundance of strawberries at our house.  I swear my kids could eat them for morning, lunch and dinner everyday.  I was on the hunt for a new fruity cocktail to try, to use up some of these strawberries and came across this cocktail.  Sounds absolutely delicious!  I will definitely be enjoying this one this weekend.

Strawberry-Lemon Mojito
(found it here)

8 lemon wedges
24 mint leaves, plus 4 mint sprigs, for garnish (optional)
4 strawberries, plus 2 halved strawberries, for garnish
Ice cubes, plus crushed ice
8 ounces gold or aged rum
3 ounces fresh lemon juice
2 ounces prepared sugarcane syrup or agave nectar

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the lemon wedges with the whole strawberries and mint leaves.
Add ice and the rum, lemon juice and sugarcane syrup.
Shake well.
Strain into crushed ice–filled highball glasses.
Garnish with the berry halves and mint sprigs.

Cheers!

When it comes to summer jewelry, I like it either lightweight and dainty or a fun bright pop of color.  Any of these pieces would be so pretty paired with any summery ensemble throughout the next few months!

J.Crew Floral Wreath Necklace (Beautiful! And there's also a bracelet too.) // J.Crew Floral Beaded Bracelet // Kendra Scott Friendship Bracelet (I'm sure you've seen me wearing this already this season - love it!) // Kendra Scott Parker Studs in Drusy // Kendra Scott Anna Rings (set of 2) // Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Drusy (Love the simple simplicity of this one.) // Kate Spade Crystal Studs (I can't leave these out because I seriously still wear them all the time! Photos never do them justice.) // Stella & Dot Renegade Bracelet (no arm party is complete without it) // Gorjana Tropical Leaf Studs // Gorjana Anchor Studs // Gorjana Pave Bar Necklace



Also loving these pretty hoops.  All jewelry at Anthropologie right now is 30% off for a limited time.  Discount is reflected at check-out.

I'm sure you noticed that many of my favorites are by Kendra Scott.  I just love the simplicity she brings to her jewelry and her drusy stones are my favorite!  I own a few of her Rayne Necklaces (get the magenta one if you're deciding on a color!) that I love accenting outfits with, and know that the quality is pretty amazing.  So I have no problem adding a few new pieces to my collection, knowing they'll last a long time.  Kendra Scott is also carried at Nordstrom now too - huge plus!
I first started noticing Kendra Scott when everyone used to wear the large dangly Danielle Earrings.  I thought they were so pretty, but I just won't do dangly.  While they look stunning, I'm thinking more of weight and how heavy they are on your ears, will one of my kids rips it out of my ear, etc. so I usually just prefer studs.  Well, now Kendra Scott has come out with newer smaller versions of the Danielle.  I'm thinking maybe I'll try the Dani or if anything, the Lee now.  She also has these Lobe Wonder Patches you can try too.

If any of you shopped the Memorial Day Sales this past weekend, I hope your packages are starting to arrive on your doorstep and that you're loving it all!

Happy Thursday, Y'all!

Wednesday Whereabouts

 
We had the best time over the holiday weekend.  My parents were visiting friends close by the week before, so they had dinner with us on Friday night before driving home.

 Coverup (Unfortunately, this color has sold out, but I really like this navy one too in the same style. And if you like red, here's a pretty one also.) // Sunnies
Approaching the bridge to Sullivan's Island.
A pretty incredible view of the Ravenel Bridge.
On Saturday, we took a friend's boat out and drove out to the Yacht Harbor in Wild Dunes.  That evening, our friends in town for the week came over and we ordered pizza by the pool. // Swimsuit

On Sunday, we took a break and tended to the yard and I got some laundry finished.  It was surprisingly cool on Sunday which was kind of nice.  We cooked out and had wings and roasted marshmallow with neighbors that night.

Ready with our bright hues! // Mermaid Goggles // Cover-Up // Phone Case
Seriously the cutest little Mini Boden Cover-up!  The fish embroidery is so detailed and I love the little mini pom-poms!
 Polka Dot Swim Suit in the Flirt Bandeau Style - only $21!
The girls and I had fun with some flash tattoos! // Flip Flops // Polish is Tuck It In My Tux
On Monday, we took the boat out again and drove over to John's Island and hung out at a little island over there until the tide came in, and then we headed back.  I still can't believe how much the kids love riding on the boat.  We were out from 10-3 on Monday!  We stopped at a place to eat on the water on our way back and we all had cover-ups or t-shirts except for Vaughn.  So we had to throw Effie's extra cover-up on him.

Memorial Day Evening OOTD

Top (on sale) // Shorts in Neon Watermelon // Sandals // Striped Monogram Tote // Bead Necklace (on sale) // Tassel Necklace is Theodosia Jewelry - Contact jenny@theodosiajewelry.com if you're interested in one, mention SSP and you'll receive 20% off.

And yesterday, we were back at the pool!  Can't get enough!

Happy Wednesday, Y'all!

10 Summer Dresses: All on Sale!




I hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  We seriously couldn't have asked for better weather!  We enjoyed lots of time outside: boat rides, pool time, cook-outs, roasting marshmallows, beach time...


We were sad to see it come to an end yesterday, but Wheeler only has seven more days left of school, so we're pretty excited about summer and more of all of that!  This was her excited "school's almost out for the summer" face when I dropped her off at school this morning.  I can't wait to share our weekend recap with you on tomorrow's Wednesday Whereabouts!

For today, I wanted to share with you some summery dresses that have caught my eye.  Whether it be a summer wedding, fun night out or something to throw on during the day, these dresses will all fit the bill...and they're all on SALE!

This first dress resembles Mara Hoffman, but it's on sale for only $25.99 right now AND it includes free shipping.  At that price, I'm not sure how long this dress will last!  I've never ordered anything from this site before, but may have to try it out for such a good deal on this dress.

It also comes in this short version, as well - for only $15.33!

Nordstrom just marked down more items during their Half-Yearly Sale that ends on May 31.  I love the little Kate Spade Striped number for summer.  And this Equipment Silk Dress above was $278 and now it's $111, but hurry, this one is selling out quickly.

This J.Crew Shift Dress is actually in my cart right now.  I love the purple hues with subtle turquoise accents and it's currently 30% off with code: WEEKEND.  These shorts are in my cart too.

I have this exact style Tory Burch T-Shirt Dress in a different print and have enjoyed wearing it this season.  It's super comfy and a great dress to toss on during the day.  Don't let the "t-shirt" part fool you.  The fabric is heavier than a t-shirt material so it conceals better than a true t-shirt dress would.  It's also now on sale!

The blue color of this recently marked down Rebecca Taylor Dress is stunning!  Would be so beautiful to wear to a summer wedding.

Another summer wedding stunner is this silk charmeuse Amanda Uprichard Cascade Dress.  Also available in ivory.

I just think the print and style of this BB Dakota Dress is so effortless and cool.  Toss on some pretty neutral sandals and your look is perfect.

Such a great toss-on maxi by Splendid.  I always like one with a print or stripes to mask curves better than a solid color.

Here's another striped maxi by Susana Monaco.  So simple and classic.  This one also has a shelf bra lining.

Clean, crisp and white.  Just ordered this Gap Dress.  There are so many places this one little dress could take you this summer.  Keep it casual in flats or dress it up with wedges.  Accent it with any color of the rainbow.  Currently 30% off with code: MORE.  Also available in black.

Cheers to summer being here soon, and an excuse to buy a new dress...or two!  Remember that these are all currently on sale!

I hope y'all have a great start to your week!  Another beautiful day here, so you know we'll be taking advantage while it lasts!

Lilly Pulitzer: Splash Into Summer Favorites + Hayden-Reis Sale



I don't know if it's that it matches all of the gifts with purchase for the Splash Into Summer Lilly Promo or that I really just LOVE this print, but I'm definitely ordering this Elsa Top.  I have a serious crush on the style, fit and fabric of the Elsa, so when Lilly comes out with a beautiful print like this one, I'm all over it.  For fit, it's true to size.  They also have this print in the Little Lilly Shifts too, that are just as adorable.

When I shop Lilly's site, I always forget about their cute accessories section.  Love this infinity scarf with the cute little tassels.  And this is so perfect for the pool or beach.

Take 20% off Women's Fashion on Amazon until the 25th.
Enter code: FUN20SUN.

Anyone need an amazing pool tote for the summer.  Trust me when I say this only because I've used mine for the last two summers and this summer makes three, but I will always use my Hayden Reis Ditty Tote for the pool and beach.  It wipes clean and has so many inner pockets.  Plus, it's huge and the straps are the perfect length for carrying over your shoulder.  I really can't say enough about how much I love my tote.  And you can have it monogrammed.  The best part for you is that through the weekend they're running their Friends & Family Sale and everything is 20% with code: FRIENDSANDFAMILY on orders of $50+.  These would make great graduation gifts too!
