What I'm Loving

Hi loves!

It's time for another round of What I'm Loving Wednesday.

1. Pretty necklaces

I've collected quite the stash of gorgeous gems. Here are a few that I've worn this week:


Love, love, love the "gem on the rocks" necklace from Gemmy Junky! It's a great layering piece for my other necklaces. 


This {crystal necklace} is another favorite of mine. It's perfect for work ensembles, but I also love pairing it with a plain tee to dress it up. 


And finally, how amazing is this spike necklace? My boyfriend told me it looks like it's from the Amazon (silly boy) but I'm absolutely obsessed. I love pairing it with girly looks for a great contrast, like the one below.


2. Karen Walker look-alike sunnies


Can you believe I ordered {these sunnies} off of Amazon for only $8? They are surprisingly well made. I love nice sunglasses, but I'm always afraid of losing them or breaking them. I'm headed to the beach this weekend and these will be the perfect pair to take with me! 

Here's my ootd from the above picture. On another exciting note, my BaubleBar {tassel necklace} finally came in the mail! It has been on back order for quite some time and the anticipation has been killing me. There are so many different ways to wear this necklace, be prepared to see it a lot in the future!


3. Pretty polish colors

Lately I've been loving painting my nails! Summer is the perfect time for bright polish, so I'm really taking advantage.



4. Lucite pretties


Lately I've been seeing lucite jewelry everywhere! It's definitely a trend that I'm loving. I even ordered my own lucite pretties from {t&j designs} and I can't wait to show you when they come in! 
All of their new lucite jewelry is really on sale right now so buy it fast :)

What are y'all loving this week?

Oh and exciting news... I have another member added to my family. (If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know!) Get ready for an upcoming post on my new baby!

Love, Cait

Lissa Mar Designs


When I first heard of {Lissa Mar Designs} I almost couldn't believe it - how had I not known about this clothing line before? One visit to their website and I promise you will be hooked. Fun, colorful prints, nautical patterns, and southern, classic style are incorporated into everything they make.


My mom and I both fell in love with these gorgeous Lissa Mar dresses! I love the bright colors and the nautical feel of both pieces. We are headed to the beach next weekend and you can bet your bum we're packing our dresses with us. 


When my dress arrived, it was the same length as my mom's. I had it altered because it was a little bit too long on me. I love the length of it now though - since there's a lot of fabric up top and it's very conservative, I think the shortness of it really draws attention to your legs! 



Have you heard of Lissa Mar designs? If not, you haveee to check them out... I am seriously in love with everything!  

Hope everyone had a great weekend :)

Love,

The LBD


Every girl needs a good LBD (little black dress) in their closet! This dress is my go-to when I don't know what else to wear for a date night or a night on the town. One thing is for sure: don't waste this dress if you're not going to be seen in it! ;)


When I found {this dress} I knew it was "the one." It caught my eye because of the delicate flowers on the bodice and the sheer, high-low hem of the skirt. Trendy but classic!


 The great thing about LBDs is that you can style them so many ways! Different shoes, a different clutch and different jewelry all make the LBD extremely versatile. This one is also incredibly affordable  - less than $40!


In other news, (completely unrelated to the LBD) I went to go look at some kittens Tuesday night. I fell in love with one that fell asleep in my arms with her head in the crook of my elbow. She is so cute, but I can't decide if I'm "ready" for that responsibility or not! Cat owners, please tell me - are they a lot of work?

Love, Cait

Life Lately

I've been such a bad blogger this week! I'm sorry, loves! It has been a super crazy week. Here are some recent pictures from Instagram and my phone (and apologies in advance for the super long post!).


I am OBSESSED with my monogrammed {Rita Earrings} from the Happy Clam Monogram! Aren't they so gorgeous? You can customize them any way you want, down to the color of the acrylic, the monogram color and the monogram style. I went with ivory and a gold monogram because they go with everything. 


They are seriously my favorite pair of earrings I own! I also love {these earrings} by the Happy Clam Monogram as well. That purple color is simply gorgeous.


How amazing are these Calvin Klein {leopard vivian shoes}? These were a birthday present from my family (except I picked them out, haha) and I could not be more in love. Not only are they hot, but they're incredibly comfortable!! I've worn them out a couple times and have danced my heart out without any blisters at all. They also come in {hot pink} and {royal blue}. Sigh.


Lately, I've been really loving Vestique. They have such trendy, chic clothes at insanely affordable prices. I love the white top I'm wearing in the picture above, as well as the infinity bracelet in the picture below.


This week I also broke out my new Kate Spade bag! It was also a birthday present. I love cross body bags because they are so EASY! You don't have to carry it on your shoulder or lug it around, it's hands-free. The stripes on this one are so chic.


And finally, I just spent the most amazing weekend in Charleston with my boyfriend! We stayed at {The Boardwalk Inn} just for a night, but it was perfect. We had an amazing view, and the boardwalk from the hotel goes straight to the beach. 


If you're ever in Charleston or staying near Sullivan's Island, you MUST eat dinner at {The Boathouse}. It was seriously the best food I've ever eaten - and I usually don't even like seafood that much. Chris and I ordered the fried green tomatoes to start with (they came with to-die-for pimento cheese), I ordered the crab cakes (amazing) and he had the fried shrimp and oysters (equally as amazing). What makes the restaurant even cooler is the rooftop bar, where you can have a drink and watch the sunset! 


Arm party for dinner... this Vestique seashell bracelet was perfect for the beach!



The best part of the whole trip was definitely just relaxing on the beach. Being beside the ocean is my happy place.

Did y'all do anything exciting this weekend?
