Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! This weekend was so much fun. Lots of friends were in and out of town, and we celebrated Deirdre and Grace’s birthday at the Oyster Shed at Leon’s – such an amazing space! I didn’t spend my usual time blogging this weekend (kind of nice to take the weekend off!), but I wanted to share these photos. It was just so pretty and so fun. Oh, and I also started watching The Hills on Friday night – so cheesy, but so good. It’s on Hulu in case you were wondering! Have a great day! xx

Weekend Browsing

Hellooooo, Friday! The weather has been so funny in Charleston this week – constantly fluctuating between sunny and stormy. It’s a little frustrating when you’re trying to get something done outdoors, but it actually feels great. I took some work photos out on Sullivan’s yesterday, and I walked out by the water for few minutes which was really nice. I love how quiet the beach is on a random weekday afternoon. I dipped my toes in the water, snapped a few photos, and headed back to the car, but it was refreshing to take a second off and soak it all in. Anyway, hope you have a nice weekend ahead! I’m excited to celebrate Deirdre’s birthday, spend some time with visiting friends, and prep blog things for next week. OH, and I posted really late yesterday, so make sure you check out the apple tart recipe. Xo!

Simple Apple Tart Recipe

la-crema-apple-tart-10la-crema-apple-tart-1

Honeycrisp apples miiiiight be one of my most favorite foods. Really. In fact, I don’t even love most other apples. I think it started when I was doing the paleo diet in college, because it literally was the only sweet and satisfying thing I could have. Needless to say, not doing the paleo thing anymore, but I still love the apples.

little things

a few things on my radar right now:

ONE: Leggings season is upon us! I’m all about a twist on the classic cuts but always prefer black leggings. This pair fits the bill. 

TWO: I feel like I’m always switching bags – from clutches to work bags to everything in between – so I sometimes leave credit cards in random pockets and find myself unable to pay when the check comes…oops. I’ve started carrying just my most important cards in a little card holder, but it’s getting stretched out. Thinking I need one like this with a button/enclosure to keep them safe!

THREE: The new Candy Shop Collection is so much fun. I always get compliments on my croissant earrings, and they’re finally online!! (On a beautiful new website, I might add)

FOUR: I wore my white tennis shoes out this summer. It’s definitely time to grab a new pair for fall, and I love that these have the subtle pattern on the back.

FIVE: I really need to do a full post on how much I love It Cosmetics. I’ve tried so many different foundations, and I truly think this one is my very favorite. I’m medium in the summer, and it looks like I’ll be a mix of medium/light in the winter.
