Sea Island: Secretly Tropical

Unless you've been there, you probably don't know how tropical the coast of Georgia is. I've been lucky enough to spend a great amount of time up and down the Georgia coast so I know how humid, balmy, and tropical the beach towns can be (and how genuine the people in them are!). However, Sea Island isn't the only place this editorial reminds me of... it also makes me reminiscent of my family trip to the Florida Keys last Christmas, so I just had to share! 

The floral fashion featured in this editorial is right up my alley too. So, all in all, these gorgeous photographs make me even more ready for my trip to Sea Island (and then Charleston) tomorrow!

White On White

Recently, I've been toying with the idea of doing outfit posts; I decided there is no time like the present! We shall see how it goes... 

Memorial Day has officially come and gone so I'm no longer breaking the "don't wear white before Memorial Day" rule in the white on white outfit I wore out to dinner (Central Bistro - delish!) in Phoenix. To liven up my all white ensemble, I mixed in a collection of bracelets along with accessorizes that stood out against the white. This is a good general rule of thumb when working with whites.

P.S. I'm going on the record here as saying that I don't believe or follow the "no white before Memorial Day" rule!

Rattan Furniture

My roommate and I are hunting for outdoor furniture so we can enjoy our patio this summer. On the top of my list: white wicker furniture and rattan furniture. I love the shabby chic, casual feel of rattan furniture and the way rattan pieces can have an island feel, a rustic feel, or a California cool feel. Rattan furniture also looks beautiful with different colored and patterned cushions. I like the idea of switching out cushions every once in awhile to keep patios looking fresh and inspired. So I ask, white wicker furniture or rattan furniture?

Hart-Throb

I'm clearly a bit obsessed with this girl right now but how could I not be... Jessica Hart is always one to watch and love.

I'm in Arizona, so naturally I'm about to hit the pool à la Miss Hart. Happy Saturday!

Cannes Film Festival 2013: Jessica Hart Pops

As usual, the red carpet at Cannes has been flooded with talent, beauty, fashion, and jewels. Throughout the week, I've been gazing at photographs admiring the gorgeous gowns and beautiful backdrops of the film festival. 

When I saw Jessica Hart's Emilio Pucci gown I was immediately captivated. She wears the fuchsia color so well and I love the silver accents and Chopard jewels she tied the look together with. When I saw her look, I instantly thought that it looked like something I would wear if I ever attended such an event. All in all, I heart Jessica Hart.

Not Enough Cooks In The Kitchen

Summer is the time of year I feel the most inspired, excited, and eager to try new things. This evening I'm feeling inspired in the kitchen as I try to whip up a new recipe. Before I rolled up my sleeves in the kitchen, I perused some of the cooking blogs I frequent. Here, I decided to share a few with you in case you are in need of a new food guru or two! Bon appetit!

P.S. check out my food board on pinterest for more!

Island Living

My best friend is jetting off to Maui today so I'm sending her off with a lot of love and a little jealousy!

This free people lookbook is enough to make me want to teleport to Hawaii to join in on the fun!
