FOUR: Nordstrom Clearance Sale
As you may know, I'm a huge Nordstrom fan because of their great customer service, free shipping, and great return policy! Though I don't have a store nearby, they make it so easy to shop online- which I do often, especially when they have great sales like now! I'm hoping to step up my workout wear with these pink leggings, these shoes, and this headband. Check out some of my favorite picks from their current clearance sale that lasts through next week.

Amelia Island Recap

Robbie and I took off for a long weekend down to Amelia Island to celebrate his birthday early. It was a great couple days at the beach drinking pretty drinks, watching a manatee, shark, tarpon, and lots of dolphin swimming in the ocean, riding bikes, people watching, making s'mores on the beach, eating fish tacos in the pool, and calling room service for a slice of key lime pie at 11pm... because what else is vacation for?!

We ordered tropical drinks and fresh tuna salads at Oceanside before hitting the beach!
GiGi New York Pink All in One Clutch // Aldo Mirror Aviators
Pina coladas and grilled fish sandwiches for dinner at The Surf, a very laid back outdoor restaurant near the beach.
old J.McLaughlin tunic (similar here and here) // Lilly Pulitzer bikini
Enjoying a pineapple mojito at the beach while Robbie fishes out in the ocean.
Sweet Tea Monograms large monogram tote bag
Lilly Pulitzer Dress // Monogram Necklace // Starfish Earrings
J.Crew Button Up Shirt // J.Crew Chino Shorts
Bike riding around the resort, of course making a stop for some ice cream for lunch!

The wind and surf was getting stronger as tropical storm Cristobal was coming closer... perfect time to be heading home!

Monogram Monday: Large Monogram Tote

One of my new favorite items in the Sweet Tea Monograms shop is the Large Monogram Tote Bags. They are a great size for overnight packing, carrying STM packages to the post office, or bringing towels and other goodies to the beach! I had to go with hot pink on pink, to go with my navy on navy weekender bag, which this tote often accompanies!

Weekend Recap: Rogalieu Wedding

Though it's already Wednesday (between the Lilly sale and catching up on work this week has flown by!) but I wanted to share some snapshots from this previous weekend! I drove up to Richmond on Thursday to spend the night with my grandma and see my cousin and her adorable kiddos before heading to Luray, VA (a quaint and adorable small town in Northwestern Virginia) for my little Hannah's wedding on Friday morning for her bridal luncheon with the bridesmaids. We had a great time sipping mimosas on the porch and getting ready for the rehearsal at the church and rehearsal dinner at the beautiful White House Farm. Saturday morning I was up bright and early to pick up Robbie from the airport in DC and bring him back down to Luray to start getting ready for the ceremony! We stayed at The Mimslyn Inn for the weekend, which was also where the reception was held- such a beautiful venue!

It was a wonderful weekend celebrating such a sweet couple, and the best part is that they are honeymooning down in Kiawah this week so I get to see them again today, YAY!

Bridesmaid dresses from Nordstrom- sold out in Violet but available in Navy and Champagne (and FYI they run small!)
