Happy Friday, loves!! I am so excited about this long weekend and finally having a chance to hangout and relax with my husband and friends.

I have been living in this Ro’s Garden cover up this summer. I ordered it in a size small and love the loose fit…it is perfect to wear for a long day on the beach or the boat. It is one of those dresses that you can easily throw on to run in to grab lunch or comfortably wear on the beach all day because of its light-weight and breezy fabric. I also love the red and pink flowers on it– you could even wear it for the Fourth of July tomorrow with a blue swimsuit. I wore it here with my favorite tan slides, but how cute would it be with the Melissa heart pool sandals?! And of course no summer outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses and my current favorites are these Gucci lookalike sunnies from Amazon…I swear you cannot tell the difference from the real ones, but they are only $12.99!! These do sell out quickly so be sure to grab yours soon!

1. Gucci Lookalike sunnies 2. Ganni Polka Dot Midi Dress 3. Hermes Face Mask 4. Staud Maxi Dress 5. Juicytube–Spring Fling 6. Spiritual Gangster Tee 7. Prada Slides 8. Ro’s Garden Caroline Cover up 9. Alo Biker Shorts 10. Slip Sleep Mist 11. J.Crew Cotton Pajamas 12. Melissa Heart Pool Sandals

Face masks have become this summer’s hottest accessory and how chic are these Hermes masks?! In addition to being uber-stylish in these masks, the proceeds from the masks are donated towards the purchase of diabetic alert service dogs for children and teens. If you’re looking for a little glam under your face mask, my favorite lip gloss from middle school is back! Lancome’s Juicy Tubes are back!! My favorite shade is SringFling…it’s the perfect dewey pink gloss!

Saks Fifth Avenue has some of the cutest new dresses in for summer and I am drooling over them!! The white Staud maxi dress with multi-colored lining is such a perfect dress, whether you’re staying at home or going to brunch with your friends. I am also in love with this new Ganni polka dot dress. Both dresses would pair perfectly with Prada’s Raffia slide sandals.

Ever since I’ve started going back to the gym after quarantine, I’ve changed my workout style. I have been loving oversized Spiritual Gangster tee shirts (the SOFTEST!! material) and pairing them with biker shorts which I never thought I’d say!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few nights. The J.crew cotton pajamas are my absolute favorite–they are breathable and light, but offer coverage, which is perfect for summer in Texas. They are also 50 percent off right now with the code GOFOURTH. I’m hoping new pajamas and the chamomile sleep mist from Slip will help me get back into a regular sleep schedule soon.

I hope you all have a safe and healthy Fourth of July and enjoy all of my picks this week!

Patriotic Sips: Rosé, White and Blue

Patriotic Sips: Rosé, White and Blue

Fourth of July weekend is finally here and after a long and hectic month of June, I am ready to relax with my favorite drink for the holiday…rosé! From sparkling to still and even *canned* I’m sharing my favorite blush wines with you in time for the weekend.

This time last year, I was sipping rosé poolside in the south of France…how cute is our pink hotel?!

My go to for still Rosé is of course, Miraval. I love the taste, it is widely available and it is a great price…I’d also be lying if I didn’t say I love the fact that it’s owned by Brangelina. But if Miraval isn’t available, my rule of thumb when ordering rosé is to try to get a bottle from Provence. Many other wine regions have started making their own rosé blends, but I haven’t found many I love outside of Provence. I don’t like sweet or heavy wines and the wines from the south of France just seem to be my favorite.

For other still rosés, I love Minuty rosé, but it is not as easy to find here in Texas, Whispering Angel and Summer in a Bottle. If you’re in the mood for sparkling rosé, which I often am…I would highly recommend, Perrier Jouet Blason Rosé, Veuve Clicquot Rosé and Freixenet Italian Rosé.

My favorite sparkling rosé!

Last month, my friend Erica and I tested out canned rosé. Canned beverages often get a bad rap, but they are so practical in the summer. You can throw them in a bag and take them on a boat or to the beach or wherever you want to go! They are also much cheaper to buy than bottles and come in more manageable sizes. We tested out five canned rosés and ranked our favorites!

In first place, we chose the Crafter’s Union, in second, the Porch Pounder, in third, Ava Grace, in fourth the House Wine and in fifth, Underwood.

I hope you have enjoyed my rosé selections! Leave me a comment and let me know which one is your fave and I hope you have a great weekend celebrating the Fourth of July!

Brit’s Summer Travel Series: Santa Barbara

Brit’s Summer Travel Series: Santa Barbara

This week we are heading to the west coast for Brit’s Summer Travel Series! Known as the American Riviera for its nearly perfect climate and resemblance to the famed French Riviera, Santa Barbara is the ultimate summer vacation destination.

The Marina at Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara has a special place in my heart not only because I got married there, but also because I’ve been going for so many years, it feels like a second home to me. My father-in-law used to live in Santa Barbara so I was lucky enough to have a locals guide to this iconic coastal California town. But Santa Barbara is not your typical California beach town filled with surfer dudes and laid-back attitudes, it is incredibly chic and oozing with European charm. Situated between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, this quiet town is just 80 miles north of Los Angeles, and is packed with museums, vineyards, restaurants and some of the top-rated hotels in the world.

In addition to learning about the area from my father-in-law, I also spent two years planning my wedding in Santa Barbara. During that time, I researched and toured venues, resorts, restaurants and attractions extensively to determine where our dream wedding would take place. Because of this, I have compiled a tried-and-true list of where to stay, play, eat and drink along the American Riviera.

The hotels in Santa Barbara are some of the best in the world. I’m slightly biased, but my personal favorite is the Four Seasons. It is set on the most beautiful property over looking the Pacific Ocean and the gardens are truly stunning. As a guest of the hotel, you have access to the Coral Casino, which is a private social club across the street that has the most adorable pool and beach club. The level of service at the Four Seasons is unlike anything I have ever experienced at a hotel. Whether you’re hanging out at the Jungle Pool or the Coral Casino, lush chair coverings and towels are laid out for each guest and attendants bring around fun snacks like frozen grapes and peppermint patties throughout the day. The Spa and accommodations at the hotel are amazing and worth every penny of the hefty price tag.

If you’re interested in other high-end hotels in the area, the San Ysidro Ranch is an incredible choice (JFK and Jackie Kennedy Onassis honeymooned there) and offers a unique luxurious garden experience for their guests. I also love the Ritz-Carlton Bacara Santa Barbara although it is located quite a ways from the town of Santa Barbara. My dad and I stayed at the Bacara the week before my wedding and we had the best time. The resort is stunning and there is SO much to do–hiking, biking, golf, restaurants, several pools and an amazing spa.

While in Santa Barbara, there is no shortage of activities to do for people of all ages. My favorite place to go when I’m in town is Ganna Walska’s Lotusland. The story behind this stunning property is so fascinating and the grounds have been maintained to perfection since Ms. Walska’s death in 1984. Reservations are required for a visit so make sure to do that well in advance. With Lotusland’s proximity to San Ysidro Ranch, I would suggest a 10 a.m. reservation at Lotusland and brunch at the ranch after.

During the summer months and when COVID isn’t an issue, taking in a polo match is always a great experience or a hike to Cold Springs Tavern will make for a great day. If you prefer to stay in Santa Barbara proper, there are a number of wonderful wine tasting rooms, shopping and restaurants to enjoy. Two of my favorite tasting rooms in the downtown area are Au Bon Climat and Happy Canyon and The Funk Zone is a must-do for wine-lovers.

When you’re in Santa Barbara, Brophy Bros. is a must. I know, I know. It’s on the marina and looks like a tourist trap, but I promise you it is not. Locals love it and they have delicious oysters and clam chowder with one of the best views in the city. There are several fabulous Italian restaurants in the area as well. Our favorites are Ca’Dario and Olio e Limone and Lucky Penny for pizza.

If you’re looking for a casual vibe, Hillstone’s Honor Bar in Montecito is always a favorite as well as the Paradise Cafe and the Public Market in Santa Barbara…the Hangover Noodles at the Empty Bowl cannot be missed. If you’re looking for something fancier, the Stonehouse at San Ysidro Ranch and Lucky’s Steakhouse in Montecito are fabulous options.

For breakfast and brunch, Jeannine’s in Montecito is divine and McConnell’s Ice Cream is always a great way to end the night.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this trip to Santa Barbara with me and I hope we can all visit this beautiful city in person again soon. No matter where you go in Santa Barbara, you will not be disappointed. Come back next Tuesday to see where we will be traveling to next for Brit’s Summer Travel Series!

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July ðŸŒŸ

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July ðŸŒŸ

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can you believe we are just a week away from Fourth of July celebrations?! Today I’m sharing my favorite patriotic finds to complete your party preparations! From your attire to decor, I’ve got you covered!

Are you still searching for the perfect Fourth of July decor for your party?! Target and Amazon have the cutest patriotic decorations at affordable prices and you will be able to get them in time for your celebration! I’m a big fan of stars so of course I love banners and garland made with red, white and blue stars. I also think these Meri Meri confetti rockets are a fabulous party favor for your friends and family.

As far as my Fourth of July outfit, I will be wearing my new Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress! I ordered mine in a size small and in the “Azure Blue” color. I love the color of this dress and how feminine and comfortable it is. As much as I do love this dress, it did take two months to be delivered so I wouldn’t recommend planning on wearing it immediately, but I will say, it is totally worth the wait.

For other festive looks, I would pair the USA crop top or the beautiful Mi Golondrina top with a pair of white L’Agence Margot high-rise jeans. This is my all-time favorite pair of jeans…I have them in white and a classic blue and get so many compliments whenever I wear them.

I also love the white LoveShackFancyxTarget dress for a festive option….you can pair it with some turquoise earrings and maybe a red bow in your hair and you with have the perfect outfit. I ordered this dress online in a size 2 and it fits perfectly. It looks almost exactly like the LoveShackFancy Edie dress, but much more affordable. It’s still in stock in a few sizes at Target, you don’t want to miss this one! I shared this navy blue polka dot dress from Tory Burch last week and I had to share it again because it is just too cute and it is now under $200. This is a quintessential Fourth of July dress and would be so cute with a red headband or jewelry to show your American pride.

If you’re hitting the beach, pool or the lake, I would suggest this gorgeous high-waisted red bikini from Mara Hoffman. I have a few bikinis from Mara Hoffman and I normally wear a small in the top and medium in the bottoms. These swimsuits are definitely an investment, but they fit perfectly and are made so well… you can keep them for years!

No outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and for this Fourth of July, I will be wearing the Zara bow slides. They just got marked down to $35 and are a perfect neutral for summer. If you’re looking to splurge this holiday weekend, look no further than these chambray Chanel beauties or these chic Gucci slides. They are the perfect compliment to any patriotic look you have planned!

Whether you’re barbecuing with family, going out on the boat or the beach for the fourth, you will definitely need a festive face mask and of course, Evian face mist to beat the heat!

What are your plans for the Fourth? Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you are all staying safe, happy and healthy this weekend!

Brit’s Summer Travel Series: Watercolor, Florida

Brit’s Summer Travel Series: Watercolor, Florida

Travel has not been cancelled this summer in spite of rising coronavirus cases around the world. A record number of Americans are hitting the road this summer, favoring road trips to air travel and domestic locales to foreign destinations.

Growing up, my dad loved taking me and my sister on road trips around the U.S….from San Diego to Seattle, or Manhattan, Kansas to Montana and so many more stops over the years. This summer, I’ll be sharing my favorite U.S. summer destinations with you as part of my Summer Travel Series.

To kick things off, we’re going to Watercolor, Florida! Watercolor is a picture-perfect town nestled in between Destin and Panama City Beach along the scenic 30-A Highway. I’ve been going to Watercolor since 2010, but my husband and his family have gone since the 90s, around the time the town was developed. His mom has the most beautiful beach house there so we try to go a couple of times a year and it is just magical.

This beautiful beach town is a quick four-hour drive from New Orleans, Louisiana, a six-hour drive from Atlanta, Georgia and nine hours from Houston, Texas. There are also two airports nearby–Northwest Beaches Airport in Panama City and Pensacola International Airport that bring in flights from around the country.

Beach set-ups at Watercolor

Watercolor is a private resort community and it has its own beach, beach club, pools, tennis courts and miniature water park. The town has a hotel and homes that can be rented or owned. By staying at the hotel or one of these homes, you then have access to all of the town’s amenities.

Biking around Watercolor

Watercolor and the surrounding communities are connected by biking trails so you don’t have to drive once you get there if you don’t want to. Ubers are VERY limited in the area so I would recommend arranging rides to and from the airport and any dinners that are far away in advance because it is really hard to get a ride last-minute.

The restaurants in the area are some of my all-time favorites. Our family favorite and closest restaurant to our house is Cafe Thirty-A. It’s a very traditional restaurant and they have great fish, an incredible wine list and it is family-friendly. Next on our list is Basmati’s…I think they have the best cocktails and the food is so good! Borago is also a wonderful option if you are in the mood for Italian.

For lunch, I have to go to Shrimp Shack at least once every trip. They have the best lobster rolls–huge pieces of fresh lobster served on a simple bun with no sauce, but a side of melted butter…the best. And sometimes I get their gumbo too. The actual restaurant is really small, but they have patio-style seating that looks over the water and it makes for a great afternoon. My other lunch favorite is George’s at Alys Beach, but I have been told by most people I bring there that they don’t like it. I however, love it. The building looks like it has been dropped out of the Hamptons and delivered straight to 30A. The food is wonderful and the service is great.

We also try to go to the Big Bad Breakfast (BBB) at Inlet Beach on our trips–either right when we get in or before we fly out. BBB is originally from Oxford, Mississippi, the same town where my husband and I went to college at Ole Miss so we love going to the new BBB at Inlet Beach for a little bit of nostalgia and the food is amazing.

Reservations are always essential at these restaurants for dinner, but even more so now because of coronavirus restrictions. I will say our most recent trip was quite different than those in the past. The town was still busy, but the Watercolor Inn seemed really understaffed and over-occupied leading to crowding and nearly hour long wait times to even order a drink. If you’re at the beach club, I would just suggest packing a cooler and bringing your own drinks to the beach.

Other than the beach and beach club, there is also Camp Watercolor and the lake for guests to enjoy (in addition to smaller community pools and parks.) Camp Watercolor was just re-done and has a really fun lazy river, a slide and a pool for children of all ages.

Ready for a fun day at Camp Watercolor!

If you’re more interested in checking out the lake, they offer kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing in a beautiful setting. But whatever you’re interested in doing during your vacation, Watercolor will almost certainly have you covered.

I hope you enjoyed this trip to Watercolor with me! Come back next week to see our next stop on Brit’s Summer Travel Series!

What a week it has been, friends! It is always kind of crazy coming back from vacation, but it feels like this week has just blown by! Although this week has been fast, it has also been filled with some amazing sales…from Tory Burch’s Semi-Annual Sale to Net-A-Porter’s major sale, we are in store for some great deals as we head into summer and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on the blog today.

For my picks this week I have to start right off with these pearl sunglasses. I ordered them in April and I just got them in the mail on Monday…I have not stopped wearing them and everywhere I go, I get SO many compliments!! From the dry cleaners to lunch with my girlfriends, everyone loves these sunglasses and are blown away when I tell them I got them from Amazon for $13.99!!

1. Pearl Sunglasses 2. Tory Burch Polka Dot Dress 3. Tory Burch Fish Earrings 4. Sisley Black Rose Cream 5. Zimmerman Dress 6. Ulla Johnson Maxi Dress 7. Ulla Johnson Ruffle Top 8. Pink Free People Dress 9. Lisa Marie Fernandez Bikini
10. TKEES Lace Up Sandals 11. Ganni Midi Skirt  12. Corkcicle Canteen

I am also so excited about the Tory Burch sale this week. Tory Burch clothing is some of my favorite–it is so well made, effortlessly chic and flattering. I do think her prices are a bit steep, but as soon as her clothes go on sale, I snatch them up! I am in love with the navy blue and white polka dot dress and these fish earrings are to die for! A couple of years ago, I bought a similar set of earrings from her, but they are gold dragonflies and I’m hoping I will love these fish just as much. They are such a steal at $75!

Pictured here on New Years Eve 2018 wearing the Dragonfly Tory Burch earrings.

Net-a-Porter is also offering 50 percent off of hundreds of styles this week and some of my favorite designers are included in the sale! I live for Zimmerman and Ulla Johnson, but they are also brands I prefer to buy on sale. I am loving this peach Zimmerman dress with floral detailing, the cream puff-sleeve blouse from Ulla Johnson and this blue and white maxi dress from Ulla Johnson as well! They are all half-off right now so its a great time to buy and you have all summer to wear these beautiful pieces.

Aside from the sales, I have been crushing on this hot pink Free People Dress for a few Weeks and I think I just need to buy it! I am also loving the Tkees lace up sandals…I have a similar pair from Splendid that I bought a few years ago, but am in need of an update. If you are a Corkcicle fan, this confetti canteen is on sale at Nordstrom right now and is perfect for keeping your beverages cool in the summer heat. And last but not least, I have been using a sample of the Sisley Black Rose cream that I got a while ago for the past two weeks and I have seen a real difference in the firmness of my skin, it is a little pricey, but if you’re looking for a fabulous night cream like I have been, I would highly recommend this one!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Travel during COVID-19

Travel during COVID-19

As an avid traveler, the past few months have been incredibly strange for me. In my pre-COVID life, my husband and I would fly somewhere at least twice a month, but until last week, we hadn’t stepped foot in an airport since March.

To be honest with you, I was a bit trepidatious about going to the airport and actually flying. I had so many questions and had heard horror stories about not being able to use the bathroom or not having access to get water or food. In the weeks leading up to our trip, I called the Austin-Bergstrom Airport a couple of times to see what it was like in the airport. They assured me that places like Starbucks and Jo’s Coffee were open and all of the bathrooms were open.

I had also heard stories about crazy-long lines to check bags and get through security, but in our experience, it took less than 10 minutes to check two bags and we got through security in under 15 minutes.

The line for security at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on June 7, 2020.

We flew from Austin, Texas to Panama City Beach, Florida for our first post-COVID vacation. There were no direct flights available so on the way to Florida we had a layover in Nashville, Tennessee and on our way home we had a layover in Houston, Texas. Our layover in Nashville was about 10 minutes so I can’t really speak to what that airport was like, but I would rate Austin’s airport as the cleanest and most efficient.

William P. Hobby Airport on June 14, 2020.

For our trip, we flew on Southwest Airlines and I have to give them such a major shoutout. Everyone from the people behind the counter checking bags to the people boarding you for the flight were so helpful. I think they are incredibly sensitive to the fact that people are nervous about flying again and they worked hard to make everyone comfortable and safe.

If you’re familiar with Southwest Airlines, you will know their boarding process is quite different than other airlines. You check in 24 hours before your flight and are assigned either an “A,” “B,” or “C” with a number between 1-50 behind the letter. That is still the same, but instead of calling passengers in groups of 30, the boarding agents now call passengers in groups of 10. I actually loved this aspect. It was much more civilized and I think it kept the bottle-neck of passengers way down. Until September 30th, Southwest says they are only booking flights at 60 percent capacity leaving the *dreaded* middle seats empty unless you are a family or group traveling together and want to sit in the same row. I loved this and on all four of our flights, there were empty seats and a lot of space between passengers.

None of our flights were completely full. The only people who sat in middle seats chose to sit in them or were traveling with their families.

I do think Southwest could improve the cleanliness of the planes. Our flight to Florida was around 6 a.m., so I believe the plane had been cleaned the night before and you could tell. Our seats were clean and the plane seemed fresh. Our flights home were a very different story. Our flight from Panama City to Houston had a quick turn-around time and there were still crumbs on my set when I boarded the plane. Same story on our flight from Houston to Austin. Luckily, I bring my own wipes and wiped down our seats, armrests, seatbelts and tray-tables, but I do think the airlines should be doing more to keep their planes clean. They were very focused on picking up trash and requested passengers hand them wipes people usually stuff behind the seats several times during the flight, but picking up trash alone does not equal cleanliness.

Passengers are required to wear masks while boarding the plane and during the entire flight unless they are eating or drinking, but while you are in the airport, you are not required to wear a mask. During our longer flights, Austin to Nashville and Panama City to Houston, we were offered a can of water and a snack, but I always bring my own water and snacks so I didn’t take any. On the shorter flights, Nashville to Panama City and Houston to Austin, beverage and snack services were not offered. We were able to use the bathrooms on all flights, but you are not allowed to form lines.

COVID or not, I always try to pack my own snacks. For our flight to Florida, I made Kodiak pancakes, and packed grapes and celery. I don’t usually like fast food and try to avoid buying salty snacks in the airport.

Overall, I really appreciate the changes airports and airlines have implemented and I think they actually make the process of flying less hectic. I do think sanitization efforts should be taken up a notch by sanitizing the buckets used for security, requiring passengers wear socks through security and that airplanes are cleaned AND sanitized thoroughly after each flight.

Up, Up and Away! Leaving Austin for the first time in three months to go to the beach!

Have you traveled during coronavirus recently or do you plan to soon? Leave me a comment and let me know your experience.

Happy Friday, loves! This week I am at the beach and am sharing a few of my favorite items that I have been loving on our trip! We are in Watercolor, Florida and there are so many beautiful shades of green and blue here and that color palette has inspired most of my looks this week.

1. Straw Hat 2. Tie-dye headband 3. Rosé Earrings 4. Straw Bucket Bag 5. White Kaftan 6. SeaSalt Hairspray 7. Mint Green Workout Set 8. Scalloped Bed Sheets 9. Veuve Rosé Recycled Candle 10. Mi Golondrina Top 11. Peacock Float 12. Tan Jelly Sandals

I have been wearing this Eugenia Kim Mirabel Hat every day on our trip and I am SO in love with it. I have wanted one of these hats for years, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay the full-price. Luckily, I was online the other day and got an alert that this beautiful hat with a mint ribbon was on sale so I jumped on it! I do love a good deal so while I was checking out, I googled “Eugenia Kim coupons” and a 20 percent off coupon popped up that actually worked so I got an additional 20 percent off of the already discounted price. I recommend doing this when you are shopping online because so many stores have extra coupons available and you can save yourself a lot of money.

I paired the hat with the Uber-popular Lyocell Caftan from H&M. I got this caftan on sale a couple of weeks ago for $17.99 and I am just blown away with how elegant and high-quality it is. I have also been wearing the Pamela Munson straw bucket bag non-stop and have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect summer bag and it actually holds quite a few items.

Having fun at the pool with the peacock float and the J.crew tie-dye headband!

If you are looking for a fun and affordable pool float for the summer, look no further than this incredible peacock! We brought it to the beach and have had so much fun with it. It did take a while to blow up and I would highly recommend using a pump, but it is do-able to blow it up by yourself.

What are you loving for the beach this summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!

June Amazon Favorites

June Amazon Favorites

Can you all believe it is already June?! This year has flown by and seemed like it was moving at a snails-pace all at the same time. But either way, I am ready for some fun in the sun and am sharing my favorite things on Amazon with you right now.

1. Annika Dress 2. Crop Top USA Sweatshirt 3. Flower Earrings 4. Wrap Skirt Cover Up 5. Daisy Round Sunglasses 6. High Waisted Scalloped Bikini 7. Jonathan Adler Pillow 8. Lilly Pulitzer Wine Tumbler 9. Parrot Earrings 10. Link Bracelet 11. Color Block Pleated Midi Dress 12. Balloon Monkey Money Bank 13. Wicker Picnic Basket Set for 4 14. Chunky Gold Chain Necklace

I recently got this blue swimsuit because it reminded of a modest version of the coveted Marysia swimsuits with the scalloped-detailing but at a MUCH lower price-point. While I do love the color of this swimsuit and the price ($23!!), I don’t love the fit. To be honest, the bottoms look kind of like a diaper, but I like it with this tie-dye cover-up that I got for $17 and it will be staying on all day! In the end, I do think you get what you pay for when it comes to swimsuits.

I’m sure you’ve seen the daisy sunglasses all over instagram lately and they are worth the hype…they are precious and surprisingly flattering on most face types. I LOVE this USA cropped sweatshirt for summer. It was only $17, but did take a while to get delivered. If you are thinking of wearing it for the Fourth of July, I would order it ASAP! I ordered a Large because I didn’t it want to be too short.

My friend, Erica, is the sweetest and got me this Lilly Pullitzer tumbler last summer and I use it all the time! It keeps my wine or cocktail chilled and it is just too cute! She also got me the parrot earrings for my birthday and I LOVE them!! I will be wearing them this week while we are at the beach with an all white outfit.

I found this precious picnic basket the other day and I realized I needed it. Growing up, my grandma would take me on picnics and she actually got me my own picnic basket, but it is up in Montana so this basket with stay with me at my house and I can go on picnics with my husband or girlfriends all the time!

What are you loving on Amazon lately? Leave me a comment and let me know!
