Weekend Photo Diary // Vol. 5



Happy Monday, friends! School is officially out for summer. Our seniors graduated on Friday night and our underclassmen took their final exams. It's not even June yet! I'm excited for a nice, long break. Summer is always busy for me, but it's nice to have a couple of months to get recharged and inspired. This past weekend, I went out with one of my best friends shopping and indulging in Mexican food. I ended up finding some adorable things at Versona (including some gorgeous coral and turquoise tassel earrings) and Old Navy (all their dresses were 50% off!). Sunday was spent going to church, checking things off my Hulu watch-list, and enjoying the rain. Is it weird that sometimes I would much rather it be raining than sunny? Yes, just typing that sounded weird. I'll go ahead and leave you with some pictures. . .

Here's to a great week, y'all! xo

If you're looking for some perfect-for-everything swing dresses, Old Navy is the place to go. This one is from last summer, but they always carry very similar options season after season. Right now they have solid colors, stripes, and a really versatile off-the-shoulder swing dress that I picked up in two colors. These Jack Rogers Lauren sandals are one of my favorite purchases from last summer. Now I just need the blush pink ones!


Lori and I popped into the new Mercantile on State (Bristol, TN) on Saturday and spotted these adorable prints! The company is Monster No. 5 (based in Bristol, VA). Aren't these great? I think the mermaid one would be a perfect addition to my gallery wall.


I finally took the tags off this Free People dress and wore it to church Sunday. I've had this hanging in my closet for probably six months. It was rainy and dreary Sunday but still pleasant enough for bare legs. I love how seasonally diverse my FP pieces are - I can always count on being able to wear them year-round. (PS: This dress is currently on super sale!)


Let's all just stop and admire this beauty for a second. Have you ever seen peony blooms this big?! There's a hotel in Abingdon that has peony bushes planted all around the front lawn. I hit it just right on Saturday and was able to snap a few photos of them at peak bloom.

Weekend Photo Diary // Vol. 4


Hi, friends! Apologies for not getting this post up yesterday - life just got in the way. It was a fairly low-key weekend - with not much more than running errands filling up my schedule. The weather changed drastically here this past weekend compared to last. I had to turn the heat back on and put my summer dresses away again. Below are a few bargain finds I picked up over the weekend that I wanted to share with you. Enjoy! xo

This is the second bouquet of tulips that I've purchased in the last month. I love how whimsical they look when some of the stems start to fall.


My obsession with tassel earrings runs deep. I spotted these at Belk on Saturday as I was passing through to buy makeup and browse the Free People selection. They're no longer available online but if you live near a Belk and can pop into a store they're probably on sale right now - I scored them for $10!


I picked up this cactus embroidered top at Francesca's while I was out this weekend too. It's actually a swim suit cover-up, but my plan is to put a gauzy tank under it with white jeans and sandals. It's really hard for me to walk away from anything that cute with a cactus print.


I'm not one to discriminate when it comes to makeup. If I find something I like and it's $1.50, I will try it. Case in point: These eyeshadow palettes, nail polish, and liquid lipstick. I've tested them all out and was surprisingly impressed. The liquid lipstick is Wet N' Wild - a brand that lots of YouTube beauty bloggers are obsessing over again. I swatched the purple shadows in the photo below. . .


I was shocked how pretty and pigmented these shadows were. Purple is not a color I wear often but every now and then, it's exactly what I need and really complements my brown eyes. I couldn't pass this palette up, and I'm so glad I didn't. How pretty is that shimmery, bronze shade?!
