I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with Dooney & Bourke to share their “Summer Fun” event this June! See how I styled this timeless and classic hobo shape Paterson Leather Paige Sac two different ways!

 

With pebbled leather, bright colors and easygoing style this bag is the perfect size for work, walking around town, or going out at night. The fun design elements such as the belt-like buckle, tassel zipper closure, and brass feet make this bag truly unique. I know this bag will be a staple in my wardrobe all summer long here in Charleston. Click here to see all of my favorite summer fun picks!

 

 

 

I’ve been a huge fan of Annie Selke for a while – I just adore the fun and happy prints and each of her stylish pieces are made with supreme quality and care. Since moving to Charleston, I try and spend as much time by the water as possible, so I’m always looking for the perfect beach bag. I was thrilled to hear that Annie Selke came out with the new Summer Collection and I knew I HAD to have the Happy Fish Ogunquite Tote! With its summery-hued watercolor fish pattern and rope handle, this roomy beach tote is as charming as it is practical. I love that the bag even has grommets to let the sand escape – the floors of my car and my apartment are also a lot happier with this feature. Annie Selke and Sea Bags really came together to create the perfect summer accessory – its the right size to fit everything I need for the beach or the pool and I just adore the fun fish pattern. I love that each bag is individually handcrafted from recycled boat sails right on the waterfront in Portland Maine, making each piece unique! You can check out the entire Summer 2018 Collection here! Meanwhile I’ll be contemplating how I can make a trip up to Lenox, MA to visit Annie Selke’s new charming and whimsical lodge, 33 Main 🙂

 

 

Everyone always talks about the perfect little black dress, but what about the perfect little white dress? Well friends, I think I’ve found it! The ruffles and bow straps are absolutely perfect and I’ve never received more compliments on a dress walking around town before. It’s so fun and flirty and will be just darling for any and all summer events!

I am absolutely LOVING this fun take on a classic striped shirt dress. The florals add an extra little bit of femininity and the matching shoes are the perfect touch. My entire look is from one of my favorite retailers, Brooks Brothers, and they just came out with so many more cute new arrivals!

Today I’m happy to share one of my favorite handbag brands – Barrington Gifts! I already have their winter blackwatch plaid tote and was looking for something a little lighter and more colorful for the spring, so when I got the opportunity to partner with them I was so excited!

What’s truly unique is that every bag of theirs is customizable and even comes with a monogram (if you’d like)!

It was so fun to design a new bag for the spring – I went with blue gingham (of course 🙂 ) with a navy monogram and know it will be a staple in my wardrobe all season.

The bag is called The St. Anne Tote and I swear this pattern combination is basically spring in bag form! I used it last week strolling through beautiful downtown Charleston and it was just perfect. I’ve paired it here with a pretty white eyelet top and gingham bow block heels! Hope y’all enjoy!
