OOTD: Billowy Ballet

During the Summer, I am notorious for wearing swimsuit/bikini cover-ups pretty much all the time during the weekends and more casual outings.

OOTD: Springtime Romp

Pre-pandemic, back in the days of outdoor weekend brunches with friends in the Spring and Summer or cookouts with my family- I always kept it comfortable and casual.

OOTD: Three-Day Weekend Casual

The tradition every Memorial Day Weekend- for as long as I can remember- consisted of at least one cookout and at least one trip to the beach to “jump start” the Summer season with friends and family. Of course, this year things are a little different- what with social distancing, mandatory face coverings, and limited […]

OOTD: Southern Belle Dress

I know that Mother’s Day can be challenging for a lot of different people for a lot of different and deeply personal reasons- made even more stressful and frustrating by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing protocols. I consider myself to be fortunate in that I have a strong bond with my own mother- […]
