All Dressed Up & Nowhere to Go

All Dressed Up & Nowhere to Go

1 / 2 / 3 / 4/ 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

We're headed down to DVL for another low key weekend, but lately I've been getting a little tired of my "mom" attire, so I dreamed up a collection of dresses I would love to wear, be it to a wedding or event, or even just a fun date night! 
I hope you all have a great weekend!

Beach Days

Still coming down off of our vacation high, I thought I'd share a couple of my fav shots from our family beach trip. After a couple of rainy days in the beginning, the skies opened up and the rest of the week stayed sunny and beautiful. This rubber duck proved to be the best $12 I've spent in a long time. Harrison loved to play in it on the beach (with or without water) and the fun continued back at the cottage at bath time.  And watching Harrison feel sand for the first time and twist his little baby fingers in it, was probably my all time favorite moment from the whole week. He was so mesmerized, it kept his attention for a good 30 minutes! The Hubby and I even managed to slip away one night for dinner by ourselves at our favorite restaurant, the Blue Point in Duck.  

I'm so happy we decided to take a family vacation this year. Time has been flying by so fast, and this week away really allowed me to take the time to live in the moment with my family. It's so easy for me to get overwhelmed with juggling work and family life, that this week felt like exactly the breath of fresh air I needed.

White to Bright

Hey everyone! I'm happy to be back today from a relaxing beach vacation and also excited to share with you a little style board I put together featuring these Hollywood Regency Chairs found over at Chairish. If you aren't familiar with them, then you are in for a real treat. Chairish is an exclusive curator approved, online marketplace for vintage furniture, and they have tons of high quality vintage pieces to choose from. I was thrilled when Chairish asked me to take a room from white to bright using a pair of their accent chairs! I chose the Hollywood Regency Chairs for their traditional lines, and versatility. I paired them with green grass-cloth wallpaper, and a few other green and neutral accessories that create a bright but peaceful room. Check out the Regency Chairs and some other great accent chairs they have here

Packed & Ready to Go


We're all packed up and and ready for a week in the sand and sun! I can't believe how fast this summer, year, and time in general is flying by these days. I am going to do my very best to live in the moment this week and enjoy every second of this fleeting summer and long days with our growing baby. 
See you in a week!

Neutral Nursery

Crib Skirt - DIY
Mobile - Handmade by W's late Grandmother

Hey friends, I finally have nursery pictures to share with you and Harrison is only 6 1/2 months old! opps! But to go back to the beginning, as soon as we found out we were having a boy, I knew I wanted to stay away from an overly cutesy nursery and instead wanted something neutral that could grow with him. I chose to layer grays and tans, with a few blue accents, and lots of different textures in the room. This is a super small room, so I knew I wanted to keep it as minimal as possible (anticipating lots of toys and baby gadgets in the future). I am one of those people that tends to get very anxious with clutter so I used a hand-me-down armoire to hide books and small toys, as well as hanging baby clothes and blankets.

Vacation Time

Beach and Baby

My families' summer vacation is approaching next week and I'm quickly learning that old saying about traveling with a baby that you have to pack "everything but the kitchen sink" is completely true. We've taken a few weekend trips this year so I've slowly learned what are essentials and what we can make do without, but this time we will be gone for a whole week so I'm trying to pack to make the week as relaxing and easy as possible. I recently purchased this inflatable duck bath tub, thinking it will pack nicely into the car and provide double duty for bath time and as a play pool on the beach. Of course we will bring along some beach toys, and this teething necklace has been my new best friend! Do you know any tips and tricks for traveling with a baby?

Saturday Farmer's Market

Over the weekend we stopped by the Deltaville farmer's market for the first time this summer and I'm so sad we've been missing out of this for so long! For a little bay community, the market was quite impressive with not only fresh produce, but also a variety of artisan vendors were there to sell their goods as well. My mom even bought a children's book to keep at the house for the grand-kids that was written and illustrated by a husband and wife team that live on their boat. How cute is that? 
And I can't stop thinking about the limelight hydrangeas we saw at the market. I've been scoping out my yard ever since to find a place to plant a bush this fall. 
It felt good to get out of my typical routine and try something new, and Harrison was so taken by all of the activity around him. I hope your weekend was nice; try any new things?
