Bow Back…

tassel earrings // white Jack Rogers (25% off!!!) // Celine sunglasses, similar here

This bow back romper is one of my favorite items in my closet right now… it's so unique, from the floral print to the bow back. It's also one of those rompers you can dress up or down… I would add wedges or nude strappy heels to dress it up for nighttime. Also be sure to check out the Tory Burch Sale going on right now - you can get a similar bag for 25% off right now! (I actually bought mine during the sale last year.) See all of my picks here.

I'm in Dallas this week/weekend… it's super fun but I'm already exhausted! If you have snapchat, follow along (cmcoving) for some behind-the-scenes.

Harbor Town + Tory Burch 30% Off!

Tory Burch black wedges (my new favorite) // Celine sunglasses, similar here

There's a little place in Hilton Head called "Harbor Town" that I fell in love with. A red and white striped lighthouse stretches to the sky, red geraniums are planted in big pots, and dozens of beautiful boats are docked all around. It was the perfect setting for this black and white pleated dress… as you know, I'm usually drawn to colorful clothing, but there's something about this dress that just screams classic. For the rest of the outfit I kept it neutral, including these black wedges - they are definitely a new favorite (and comfortable too!). I also want them in white!

Also - today is the start of the Tory Burch Spring Sale so if you've been wanting to splurge on a new handbag or sandals this is the time! I ALWAYS wait to get my new spring bag until this sale! Use the code SPRING to get the discount - spend $250, get 20% off; spend $500, get 25% off; spend $750 and get 30% off. My favorites are below, including these jelly sandals y'all have seen me wear on instagram! For those asking, they are very comfortable - I just wouldn't wear them in the rain because they may slide around!

* indicates I already own the item and love it!

Hilton Head Recap

This past weekend I took a trip to Hilton Head Island for the RBC Golf Tournament. I had been to HHI once before (for a very short trip), so I was excited to have more time this weekend to explore all that the island has to offer. It is beautiful and incredibly peaceful place - and everywhere you go there is lush greenery and Spanish moss. If you or your family are looking for vacation spots… HHI is where it's at!

I drove in on Saturday and immediately met up with the three other (awesome!) bloggers on the trip, Grace, Jessica and Hallie at the restaurant Hudson's On the Docks. The food was AMAZING, even for a non-seafood lover like me. The restaurant specializes in soft-shell crab and they even showed us all the crabs that they cook fresh every night (poor things!). 

It was warm and breezy out so we all sat outside on the dock to eat - look at that amazing view! We even saw dolphins swim by while we were eating...

The next day it was forecasted to rain all day, but the sun was shining bright in the morning so I threw on this one piece and tried to catch some rays for about an hour!

turquoise tassel earrings // ripped denim shorts (sold out), same brand here 

Pretty soon it was time to head to the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament. I've been to a few golf tournaments and this one really stands out because it's right next to the water - all of the boats come and park right next to the golf course! Below is myself and Miss SC watching the game. We were mainly interested in watching Spieth play. For those of you who don't know, Jordan Spieth won the Masters a few weeks ago and he is also a cutie pie! (He has a girlfriend though, DARN!)

This is Jordan Spieth below :) I had to be super creepy to get this picture!

Congrats to Jim Furyk, the winner of the RBC Heritage Tournament, below.

Here's what I wore later in the afternoon to explore the island:

 Rebecca Minkoff mini handbag (30% off with code FRNFAM! choose the "electric pink" color)
Kendra Scott "rayne" necklace // Kendra Scott bangles // David Yurman bracelet

And what I wore to dinner that night… if you are a seafood lover, HHI has tons of amazing seafood restaurants. This particular night I was really craving Mexican food though so we went to Aunt Chilada's - some of the best queso and grilled chicken I've ever had!

cold shoulder dress // Valentino clutch // Tory Burch wedges // David Yurman bracelet

Oh and just look at the sunset when we got back that night - both of these photos have not been edited at all. It was honestly breathtaking.

The next morning, we packed up our bags and prepared to leave the island - but not before taking one last stop at a place that I've heard so much about… the Salty Dog Cafe! I ordered a chili cheese dog and then of course had to get birthday cake ice cream at the Salty Dog Creamery. (Yes, I realize I made poor eating decisions on this trip, but it's vacation right?!)

tassel trim dress, similar style here // straw bag // Ray-bans // Kendra Scott earrings

BEST birthday cake ice cream ever. *Insert heart eyes emoji here*

Overall, the trip was awesome. I wish that it had been sunnier out while we were there (it rained on and off most of Sunday), but HHI is truly an awesome place with even nicer people.

If you have any HHI recommendations I'd love to hear them! Happy Wednesday everyone!

Sunshine Yellow…

cute summer look with high-waisted shorts
Kendra Scott and David Yurman bracelets
white, yellow and a pop of pink
love the sunny yellow shorts
cute summer outfit
Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote
 Rebecca Minkoff mini handbag (30% off with code FRNFAM! choose the "electric pink" color)
Ray-ban sunglasses (30% off) // MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau"

This outfit may be one of my favorites I've worn in a while (since you all know I'm a teeny bit obsessed with neon!). First I'd like to point out that the pink Rebecca Minkoff bag I'm wearing is 30% off with code FRNFAM… that's a pretty big deal because this designer doesn't go on sale very often. I have been looking for any and every excuse to wear this bag, it's so fun and the perfect size! Secondly, these high waisted yellow shorts are a dream. They fit perfectly and they are truly high-waisted, so they'd be really cute with a shirt tucked into them as well. They also come in white! I love them paired with turquoise jewelry.

This weekend was so fun but really exhausting for me… it took us about five hours in the car yesterday to get home. I'm planning on sleeping in this morning, but then I have a lot to do because I leave for Texas tomorrow morning! Will I see any of you other bloggers at #rsthecon this year?!

On the Dock...

This weekend was awesome! I traveled to Hilton Head Island to attend the RBC Heritage golf tournament and to get a full HHI experience since I had only been there once before. I drove to Raleigh Saturday morning for a bridal shower, so it was a five hour trip down to HHI… I even changed into this dress in the car haha (don't worry I wasn't driving!). When I got there I met up with a few other bloggers for dinner at Hudson's On The Docks. Y'ALL. I don't even like seafood and this place was amazing! I had the coconut shrimp (with an orange marmalade dipping sauce) and french fries (of course). I am now craving that shrimp like no other!

Anyway, this is the outfit I wore to dinner, and it ended up being perfect for a casual seafood restaurant. I adore the tassels on the front (I also reallyyyyy like this striped dress too). Before dinner we walked out on the dock to admire the views. I love being near the water… I think it's one of the most relaxing things in the world. I've been keeping my window open every night just to hear the ocean! 

More about my HHI trip coming soon! Hope everyone had a great weekend :)
