Friday's Fancies: Easter Style

In my family, we always got a new outfit for Easter Sunday. Sometimes it came in our Easter baskets, and sometimes we went shopping weeks in advance. It always made heading to Easter mass even more exciting for us kids. I didn't get a new outfit this year, but if I had, it might have looked a little something like the one below. Spring colors, beautiful baubles, and a fabulous patterned bag.




I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family & loved ones!

Moore Fiesta with Kate Aspen

A few weekends ago I headed to Charleston with a few of my very best girls to celebrate our friend, Lindsay. We spent the entire weekend sipping on margaritas, tossing back corn chips, and having a belly-laughing good time. We even took an Aerial Yoga class, and if you're in the Charleston area, I highly recommend it; we had a blast! 



The weekend would not have been complete without a stellar place to stay. We rented condos in Folly Beach, and the decor was definitely on par for our fiesta theme, don't you think? Poms & tissue paper flowers set the tone while a weekend hashtag was displayed just about everywhere (you know, in case someone forgot it).



Kate Aspen provided us with some chic votive candles for the table as well as adorable swing top bottles for favors. As a last little touch, I filled each bottle with margarita flavored jelly belly's for a parting gift. It was muy cute ;)

Karen Adams Designs

I cannot even explain the excitement that I have for this post today. When Karen Adams Designs contacted me to feature their designs on the blog I was elated, thrilled, and humbled all at the same time. Karen Adams wants to work with me? Little ol' me? I. am. so. in! 


If you don't know Karen Adams Designs, allow me to formally introduce you. Karen Adams Designs specializes in stationary and paper gifts, but to me, the company is more than just a simple correspondence here and there; it's about a paper lifestyle. Let me explain: Karen Adams' paper is chic and sophisticated with just a touch of lady-like elegance. Every piece of stationery sparkles...literally. There are little flecks of glitter on each piece; it's the signature mark of the brand. Not to mention that there is something for your every paper need. Looking for a baby card? KAD has you covered. What about a thank you note? Yes, they have that, too. Need a gift for the girl who has it all? Try a calendar


The brand has a lot of big things happening in May, and they were more than happy to share a few of the top secret details with me a tad before the official release. The next things we can expect from Karen Adams? A coloring book geared toward the child in each of us complete with coloring pencils to go with it. Brilliant!

Karen Adams Designs paper is a must have for the stationary & snail mail enthusiast. Treat yourself to a little something today! 

Karen Adams gifted me a few of the products seen here for this post, however I truly love their work. In fact, I already owned their calendar (seen above) before they reached out to me; a sign of a perfect partnership!

Friday's Fancies: Masters Style

In culmination of Masters week here on the blog (totally unintentional yet completely inspirational), I have a cute little outfit that a golf enthusiast could easily wear to this weekend's events. Make sure you have a comfy pair of shoes, a durable bag, and of course, a hat to finish off the look. 



We're enjoying a visit from my brother-in-law & future sister-in-law this weekend, so we'll be out and about enjoying the Atlanta sights. Check in next week for some pretty exciting features & announcements! Cheers to the weekend, y'all!

Masters Week: Caps

Y'all know there's more to the Masters than just pimento cheese, right? There's tradition, legend, and even style. It's hard to dress for the weather while also keeping cool in the heat, but in the spirit of the tournament, I've rounded up a few of my favorite caps fit for a golf outing. A hat is absolutely necessary when attending Augusta National to keep your skin protected and your head cool after hours in the sun. I love these options; so much better than the traditional yellow and green (which let's be honest, isn't the prettiest combination).

Masters Week: Pimento Cheese Round-Up

Augusta National is blossoming with spring blooms, golfers have made their way to the city, and enthusiasts have started making travel plans: it's Masters week. In the south, we equate this week with the days leading up to the Super Bowl; it's a big deal. We look forward to the Arnold Palmers, the crisp green grass, and of course, the pimento cheese year-round, and it's finally here. 

The pimento cheese at Augusta National is somewhat of a legend. First of all, it's one of only a few sandwiches to choose from at the course. Second, the balance of cheese and mayonnaise make it absolute perfection. Pair it with a cold beer, or even better, a sweet tea, and your lunch is served.

Today I have a round-up of some pretty amazing pimento cheese recipes that I've stumbled upon across the web. If you can't make it to the big tournament this year, mix-up one of these recipes to capture the spirit of the game instead. From the classic sandwich to the less traditional bacon cup, I've got your pimento cheese needs covered!

Friday's Fancies: Charleston Style

Today months of preparation and planning take shape, and I'm off to Charleston for my BFF's bachelorette party. We're staying on Folly Beach, indulging in a lot of good food, and taking in the sights of one of the South's greatest city's. Today's look is a little something I tossed together inspired by Charleston's famous Rainbow Row.


The pastel homes sit on the waterfront and are an iconic Charleston image. While it's probably not quite time to bust out shorts, a breezy look like this would be right at home in South Carolina. 



I hope you all have a marvelous weekend, and to my fellow teachers, enjoy spring break!
