I want all of them, but let’s go throw some of my knowledge of certain styles. From Amazon, this wrap sweater is such a great fit (runs TTS) and comes in a ton of colors. This turtleneck sweater was a pregnancy staple for me and is a look for less of this sweater. I own both the look for less and original and love both!
This coatigan is my favorite sweater ever. Comes in 3 colors and I have 3 of them. So there’s that.
I love neutrals, but a pop of color in the fall and winter is always refreshing. Loving this pink sweater and blue one. Classic hues and fits!
Everlane always has some amazing sweaters and I’m loving this classic camel one and this half zip. I can always count on them to be high quality while also being sustainable, which is very cool.
Have you started snagging fall pieces yet? I want to hear about what you’re excited to wear. Thank you so much for reading! The September Q&A is coming Friday – XO –
CHEERS to the weekend! Really looking forward to unwinding and having some reflection. It’s been a week of perspective, and when that happens it always makes me realize that living a life of hurry is not what I’m after. Hurry hurry hurry is never my goal. I read a whole book about it, in fact (highly recommend!).
I have been so into these shearling slides and can’t stop wearing them. It’s starting to cool down a little, but give me a few more weeks and I’ll be wearing them nonstop.
I am finally caught up with RHOBH and my oh my. We are in for a doozy of a reunion. No one likes to see contention between sisters, but it does make for some layered reality TV. Who else watched it?
I need to start seriously focusing on Halloween costumes. Christian and I have a fun costume event that we plan on attending and we’ll take the kids trick-or-treating, so I need something for everyone. Worst case scenario… can Theo wear his teddy bear helmet and be a bear? Kidding… maybe?
I’ve got a busy day today so that we can chill this weekend – off to get some things checked off the list. I hope everyone has a fantastic and safe weekend! Thank you so much for reading – XO –
It’s Friday! We have had a full but great week. Everyone is back in a rhythm, football season has started. That combined with school being in session means people are finally back in town and all the fun gatherings have started!
We were able to spend some time with our close friends at the lake last weekend. Hudson had a BIG time. He’s been asking me about his friends and when they can play again, so we’re going to have some families over tonight for another play date. This is a new phase of life where he actually has friends and looks forward to seeing them and doing activities. It’s really cute!
I haven’t been sleeping great… and while it might be because I have a little too much on my plate, I plan to catch up on some sleep this weekend. Along with watching Elvis on HBOMax! Who’s seen it? My parents said it was so good.
Like most of you, I am a HUGE lover of denim. I think it’s one of the easiest things to throw on with a tee or sweater when you’re getting dressed quickly. There are also so many cuts, washes and styles that you can get so many great looks out of a few great pairs of denim.
Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite styles. Below I break down which styles I personally own and love!

I get a lot of messages and emails from you guys asking about outfits for SEC game days. So I’ve been looking around and found some of my favorites for looking cute and staying cool in the early fall heat.
These are a lot of red for both Ole Miss and UGA (it’s all I know!), but most of the dresses below come in lots of colors. To shop, click directly on the item or find its associated number below.
To be honest, I’m out of the loop a little bit. I went to Ole Miss games up to around 2012 and then we moved to California.
When I came back to the South, we were going to UGA games which is a completely different vibe and is more casual than Oxford. So I think a lot of it depends on the style of the city and the school that you’re attending. But, I always think it’s better to be a little overdressed in a dress than underdressed.
Pesto eggs have been going around social media and it’s as good as it sounds and incredibly easy. A really great lunch or super quick dinner!
slice of bread – I used sourdough
s&p + red pepper flakes (optional)
Toast your bread and then spread goat cheese on it. Put a dollop of pesto on a hot skillet. Once the pesto is warm, crack your egg on top. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook egg until the whites are set, four to five minutes.
That’s it. Try it and let me know what you think! For more recipes, check out the food & drink category of this site. Thanks so much for reading – XO –

The last Friday in August – wow! Summer has been fun, but I am always ready for some fall changes. I recently shared some fall decor favorites here, and I bought this essential oil last week to put in our kitchen diffuser for a woodsy fall scent.
I saved oyster shells from some oysters rockefeller we had last weekend with my parents, and now I’m not quite sure what to do with them. They were just too beautiful to toss! My mom cleaned them well, we let them air out outside for a week and now I’m convinced I need to make a garland. Stay tuned.
I binged Echoes on Netflix over the week and wow. WOW. What a weird, trippy, Harlan Coben-y style show. I would highly recommend it! I’ve always thought it would be so cool to have identical twins but that show left me feeling a little differently. Clearly, it is not based on true events but it was a wild ride, full of twists and turns.
This afternoon I’m taking Hudson to a high school pep rally. Our sweet babysitter is a cheerleader and I didn’t realize we could go to the pep rallies, so he is going to LOVE IT. I haven’t been to a pep rally since I was in high school, so I honestly can’t wait to go myself!
We have a big weekend planned with lake swims and tiki parties, so I know it’s going to be a fun and exhausting one. I’m ready to get it started. Thank you so much for reading! XO –
Many months ago, I shared a 15-second story on Instagram about paying for an app called Get Sorted that was helping me clean out the massive amount of photos on my camera roll. I heard about it on a podcast and downloaded it. I have not done a ton of research on this topic, I’m sure there are lots of other apps that do similar things! But this is what I have used.
I am going to be sharing a reel of this recipe later today, but I wanted to break down all of the ingredients in its own blog post because you’re going to want to bookmark this one. Trust me.
I have been making this salad almost every day, and I can’t stop. Trader Joe’s bottled caesar dressing is really good, but if you can make it homemade… WOW. You will think this was takeout.
Feel free to be healthier and use a lighter vinaigrette like this recipe or substitute grilled chicken. But I’m making it just like this.
romaine lettuce, chopped fine (I use one head of romaine per person)
croutons (or make your own with chopped bread, olive oil, garlic salt, and your favorite seasoning in a skillet – I used Za’atar)
freshly grated parmesan cheese
fresh black pepper
breaded chicken bites/nuggets (I like Just Bare), air fried and chopped
caesar dressing – I use the recipe below or you can buy it bottled
tortilla – if you want to make a wrap!
Caesar Dressing Recipe:
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup mayonnaise
½ cup freshly grated parmesan
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine ingredients and tell me this isn’t the best. If you’re making a wrap, I like to spread a small amount of the caesar dressing on the middle section of the tortilla before adding the salad to it, rolling it up, and eating the entire thing in around 7 minutes.
