Top Ten | June

And just like that, it’s July. Say whaaaaat?! But actually, I’ve got nothing but excitement because July means Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I know it’s 1000-degrees outside, but this girl has a thing for 40% off booties, no matter the season! I’ve been scouring the catalog like it’s my J.O.B., and you know I’ll be finding all the good stuff, and sharing my top picks. Did you know cardholders get first-dibs? I’m a slave to airline miles, so I have their debit card for the sole purpose of gaining early access (you don’t even have to use it!)

Okay, public service announcement over, let’s get to the lookback at June! It was a busy one with room makeovers, travel and lots of style. Just in case you took an internet hiatus, here are the top posts from last month.

Sidenote: We had some technical difficulties last week, and some of you likely missed your daily emails…so make sure you caught my latest Ramblings and Dressing Room Diaries! Plus, are you signed up for my weekly newsletter?

laundry room makeover cruise formal night summer essentials

I can hardly believe I’m saying this, but the Laundry Room is now my happy place! Maybe it has to do with striped tile floors or rope pulls…either way, I’m thrilled with our Laundry & Mudroom Makeover!

Date Night with my favorite travel mate looks a little different when you’re in the middle of the Baltic Sea! Sharing a peek of Formal Night on the cruise ship in this Date Night Style post.

I’m serious about my Summer…after all, it’s my very favorite season. I rounded up my essentials for a fun & stylish Summer in the Sun.



Looking for some fresh style inspiration for these hot Summer days? Great…how about 30 Outfit Ideas!?

The recaps from our Scandinavian Cruise continued with the colorful and clean (such a strange descriptor, I know, but so true!!) city of Stockholm. This place is definitely on my list of places to return!

Tim and Faith bought an entire island in the Bahamas. #nobigdeal But it’s what they did with it that will blow. your. mind.

My mind is a cluttered place most days, so this Ramblings was a big ole brain dump of braces, graduations, face masks, kitchens, Summer recipes, new workout plans and how I keep my sneakers snow white. I told you it was cluttered up there!

Want to get that perfectly casual, nonchalant way J.Crew rolls all their shirt sleeves? Zhushing is the final step in giving your outfit personality and style…and I’m sharing all my best tips, plus the coveted J.Crew roll!


easy summer styles

I’m having so much fun with the new Summer of Style series….simple outfits shared weekly to inspire your style. This month was heavy on the blue and black with a maxi dress, a colorful pleated skirt, a darling sundress, and stripes for days!


Last month also had another round of Sugarplum Style, and everyone’s favorite, Dressing Room Diaries, featuring tons of new finds, and recent outfits (and Mama Sugarplum!). I also threw in a couple of quick Faves Under $50, featuring fun new things I’ve got my eye on.

(Sidenote: I updated my Sugarplum Picks to reflect what I’m loving and wearing these days. You can always access that under the Shop tab.)

July is starting big with a girl’s weekend away, and a quick trip to NYC for a surprise collaboration, plus I’m finishing up the teenager’s room…so stay tuned for those! There’s also a whole slew of new Summer styles and recaps from Scandinavia!

Thank you so much for stopping by when you do…your support and comments mean the world to me! Happy 4th of July, lovebugs, and happy birthday, America!!

    Just a couple of quick questions. Do you like your bed sheets you bought off of amazon? Did you like the foot peel that you did last year and would you recommend it. Thanks jane

      Hi Jane! I received my sheets, but haven’t washed and put them on our beds just yet…but gauging from how much we loved them in our rental condo, I’m really excited! And yes…love the foot peel! It lasted me a whole year! It’s time to repeat it for this Summer, but I haven’t found a time my feet can look like a snake for a week yet 😉 xo
