Life Lately.. Instagram Round Up

This week I seem to be on a roll with oversleeping.. last night I set my alarm for 5 pm instead of 5 am. Hopefully your morning is going better than mine.. This weekend cannot come soon enough, y’all! 

I’ve been stocking up on Summer essentials before our beach trip but even if you’re not headed anywhere for Memorial weekend.. Have a fun, little staycation.. order some fun Summer goodies & pretend the UPS man is your own personal cabana boy! Ha! 

There’s no better time to also stock up on healthy(ish), cocktail recipes — be sure to follow my Pinterest for some super yummy and easy concoctions.

With unusually chilly nights here in ole’ Tennessee, I’ve been so happy to have a few ultra soft, ultra comfortable sweatshirts on hand to quickly throw on for important errands ice cream sandwich runs. As for the shorts.. You already know they’re my favorite. I have found them restocked in every size & 8 colors, if you’ve been waiting to snag a pair now’s your chance!

I wish I could link this Avo-Toast for y’all. It’s seriously my favorite breakfast. Quick, easy, healthy — a winner in my book. I shared the recipe on the Friday Fill In a couple weeks back.

Life Lately.. [Instagram Round Up]

 *Photo shot by A. Bonds Productions at the rewardStyle party we attended at New York Fashion Week!

Thursday!! Did you know today is National Drink Wine Day?! If you live in Chattanooga, Mellow Mushroom has dollar wine tonight (and every Thursday!). Yes Please! If you don’t live in Chattanooga go grab yourself a bottle. My favorite is Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc! 

Last night our proposal was featured on How He Asked and now the puppies are famous!! Anytime I’m featured on a site or instagram, it’s always a funny scene at our house. Usually, I’m sitting on the couch on my phone and babe in his chair watching his shows. I’ll noticed something on Instagram and realized I was reposted/featured/etc. 

Last night was extra fun because the Instagram caption included a clip of our proposal story and mentioned both RJ & the dogs! When I first saw it, I was just screaming ‘OMG’ over and over. Scaring RJ, then I started tearing up reading our story again. It was so funny reading the comments because everyone was freaking out over Doodlebug’s name!! They either loved it or hated it but Doodle doesn’t care she just loves being famous! Also secretly, RJ was so happy because everyone kept commenting ‘goals’ or ‘This is perfect’, things like that and now his head is huge! He thinks he is a superstar, which ok he kinda is ;). 

I’ve been so busy this week crossing items off our wedding to-do list! So far we have a date, colors, a photographer and are almost half way done with the food (I’m so excited for that part ha!) and some more top secret things I’ll be able to share with you soon but for now I wanted to share a small Instagram round up for you! 

| Ballet Flats | Espadrilles | Lace Up Heels *These are SO comfortable

I’m very impatient with shopping, I always start crushing on next seasons clothes while the weather isn’t truly agreeing with my purchases. I usually can justify buy shoes early because I can pair them with warmer pieces (like boyfriend jeans and a light sweater) now and denim shorts later! Lace up flats are currently my jam, I’ll link more of my favorites below.

| White Tunic *I wear this slip underneath (Almost Identical, Similar) | Leopard Heels (Black Version Here) | Tie Dye Clutch [c/o] | 

White dresses are my favorite any time of year, especially now as a bride! This one is so unique and surprisingly so comfortable. I’ve worn it so many times since I got it in December. I’ll link some more of my favorite white dresses below!

| Stripe Tee *2 Colors + a Solid Version | Camo Pants | Denim Jacket | Ballet Flats | Buckle Crossbody | ‘Y’ Chain Necklace | Round Ray Bans |

Stripes + Camo is one of my favorite, favorite, favorite combos & this stripe tee is all the heart eye emojis. It’s under $30 and so soft. I topped it off with this little bag I basically stole (Under $40!?) for Spring. It holds so much and goes with everything.  I’ll link more spring, all under $40 crossbodies below!

| ‘I Do’ Ring Dish | ‘Future Mrs.’ Ring Dish

I shared this post talking about gifts for newly engaged babes and these ring dishes were on the list. I love ring dishes because I like to take off my ring whenever I wash dishes or my hands, do my make up or laundry. I could have five million ring dishes and be happy (sometimes I just put my ring in them for fun and look at it, but that’s also because I’m nuts). Another great gift that I forgot to include were Thank You notes, a big planner (I had to get a new one because my old planner was too small) and ring cleaner.  I’ll link my favorite ring dishes below!

| FP Tee | Lace Bralette | Necklaces *From Top to Bottom: Blue Stone [c/o Urban.Rose], Circle ‘Y’ Chain, Diamond ‘Y’ Chain, Beaded Moon Lariat [c/o Urban.Rose] |  

Layering necklaces is one of my favorite trends. I think it adds character to even the simplest outfits. This white tee is my all time faves. It comes in 3 colors and I wear it with everything. This one is a little more than I normally pay for white tees but the quality has held up so well, it was worth it. I’ll link more ‘uniform’ tees below at every price point! (PS. I recently bought this one in peach and it’s incredibly soft, $25 and comes in SEVENTEEN colors!!) 


If you’re looking to spend some money this weekend, Nordstrom is currently having a 40% off sale! I hope you have a great, wine filled Friday eve! Xo,
