What I'm Loving...

Hey friends!

Happy Wednesday... it's been a while, huh? I've been practically living out of my suitcase lately, with family vacations and road trips and reunions occurring out the wazoo. I'm finally home, though, and hoping to stay put for a while {and enjoy my summer!}. I've been going through a pretty rough patch recently, and have had to make a lot of tough life decisions. It helps to take time to appreciate the little things that make life great. This week, I'm loving...

1. The hydrangeas growing in our garden


They make the perfect decoration for the kitchen table!

2. This lipstick


I have been wanting this lipstick forever, and finally got it a few months ago. I knew I wanted a pretty coral/peach color, and this is it! It goes on smoothy, is highly pigmented, and has a delicious mango scent. 
If you don't mind splurging a little for lipstick, this is the one to buy!

3. Vanilla ice cream cones from the drive-thru


McD's {vanilla ice cream cones} are the perfect cool & creamy summer dessert, and I've been treating myself to them regularly. At 170 calories, I don't feel guilty at all!

4. Chain link bracelets

Lately I've been falling in love with chain bracelets. These by {loren hope} are classic...

But I'm also loving neons and fun takes on the classic chain link, like these from etsy.

I'm in love with this nautical-inspired one! Love. Love. Love.

5. Finally, I'm loving these neon shorts I picked up at J.Crew a few weeks ago...

They are incredibly comfortable, and a shocking shade of pink that complements a tan. I styled them with a white linen blouse for a trip to the Biltmore last week. I love how you can dress them up or down!


Finally, my family and friends should also make the list of "Wednesday Loves" this week. Thank you all so much for your love and support! I don't know where I'd be without your advice and encouragement.

P.S. Don't forget to enter my {Zobha workout gear giveaway} that ends TONIGHT!! Time is running out! :)

Love, Cait

  3. I love that nautical chain bracelet! It would be so cute for summer. Also, I am so jealous of the colour of your hydrangeas - all we have here is cream and green!
    PS: don't stress too much over life. Everything will always work itself out in the end!

  6. Those flowers are so gorgeous! And I love your lipstick..I love the idea of wearing lipstick, but I'm never bold enough to actually wear it. I just got the same color shorts, but from the factory story, and I love them. They are so bright and perfect for summer. Happy Wednesday, Caitlin!!

  17. Love J. Crew chinos. I have a pair that color but a different style that I'm obsessed with. Loving link bracelets recently as well. Hydrangeas are so pretty - we're using the ivory ones at our wedding. Good luck with all your tough decisions - hope you can relax a little and enjoy your summer.

  24. That lipstick packaging is pretty enough to buy. For some strange reason, lipstick scares me, so I stick to gloss. I need to get brave and find one that works. Hydreangas are my favorite...they remind me of paris!
