Bright Florals

Chloe + Isabel seascape earrings and seascape ring

Happy Friday, loves! I wore this outfit yesterday for a road trip from Atlanta back to Charlotte. These floral shorts from L.Mae Boutique are so bright and colorful, I can't get enough of them! And they are really comfortable for a car ride (and they don't wrinkle! woohoo). It looks good without the denim jacket too, but I was chilly from being in the car air conditioning all day.

True to my word, this really is the week of giveaways. You've seen me wear Chloe + Isabel jewelry a lot, but my favorite out of the whole line is the seascape collection, especially the seascape ring. Doesn't it just remind you of ocean waves? It is gorgeous in person - such a pretty blue, almost turquoise color. And today, Kristin with Chloe + Isabel is giving away one of these rings to a lucky reader!

The past few weeks have been really busy for me (a lot of time spent driving), so I am looking forward to doing a big, fat NOTHING this weekend! Besides laying out by the pool, that is. Sometimes a weekend full of nothing is just what a girl needs! Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Kate Spade bag (from outlet), similar bag here (on sale!) and here // MAC lipstick in "pink nouveau"

I get a lot of cravings in the summer… cravings for ice cream on a hot and humid North Carolina night... and cravings for a comfortable dress that's easy to throw on and go out the door. That's where this ASOS striped dress comes into play. This dress is just so easy. I love the smocked fit, the comfort factor and how versatile it is - you could literally style this dress a million ways!

Speaking of cravings… I am loving this neon pink and yellow necklace from I Crave Jewels (and currently craving this neon one too). Today, I Crave Jewels is giving away the same pink and yellow necklace I'm wearing in this post.. enter the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!

It's no secret that I've been on a nautical kick lately… I practically lived in red, white and blue on my family's beach vacation last week. So then you shouldn't be too surprised to see me wearing this seahorse maxi dress, right?! I love maxi dresses on summer nights because sometimes the wind (and a sunburn) can make it feel chilly outside. I also love the effortlessness of these dresses… they require almost zero outfit planning (which is a great thing, especially on vacation!). 

Because I love this dress so much and because Rich Girl Rags is so amazing, they are giving away a $100 gift card to their online store! To enter to win, you must complete the following three things:

1. Follow Southern Curls & Pearls on bloglovin' here
2. Follow Rich Girl Rags on instagram, @richgirlrags
3. Visit their website and tell me in the comments what you would spend the $100 on!

The giveaway will run until next Wednesday, June 4th. This is the week of giveaways for me… I have two more comin' at ya the next few days so be on the lookout. Happy Wednesday everyone!

#TravelColorfully with Kate Spade

Summer 2014 is no doubt the "summer of travel" for me. I've been to Atlanta, Ocean Isle Beach, Dallas, Winston Salem and Greenville all in a matter of months, and it's not the last road trip I have planned for the summer! Traveling has always been kind of "fun" for me, though... I love making lists of items to pack and, even better, packing it up in a cute bag! Kate Spade's Francis tote is the perfect bag to bring along on a summer trip because it's spacious, and the clear plastic makes it easy to see its contents. For example, the Kate Spade toucan pouch makes quite a statement peeking out! I just can't get enough of it... kind of reminds me of Toucan Sam from the Fruit Loops commercials! ;) My other packing essentials include: my iPad (and a cute case), a tumbler for drinking water, my agenda (which never leaves my side), and of course some sunnies to protect my eyes.

Be sure to enter Kate Spade's Make Waves in Rio giveaway for a chance to win a trip for two to Rio de Janeiro! Contest ends June 1st.

Jack Rogers Giveaway

Itchelita Jewelry zoe bracelet & crystal drop earrings (20% off today with code HAPPY20)

Happy Memorial Day, loves! I hope everyone enjoys the day off and remembers the reason for this holiday and the men and women who have served our country. This Memorial Day, Jack Rogers and I have teamed up for a fun little giveaway - a pair of Jack Rogers Georgica Jelly sandals! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I've been wearing them nonstop since they came in the mail last week. I normally stray away from white sandals because they tend to get dirty easily, but these are different - because they're jelly, they simply wipe right off! Which makes them great sandals for the beach and summer in general… They run in whole sizes, so I would size down if you wear a half size.

Enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget below for a chance to win!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!! And get those white pants out (even though I've already been wearing mine - oops!). P.S. Don't forget about all the Memorial Day sales going on today - I rounded up the best sales in this post.

Sunshine & Sandy Toes

On mom: Kohl's crochet tankini (sold out online), almost identical ones here and here
On Chris: Vineyard Vines fishbone swim trunks

Today I'm sharing another beach look from our vacation this week… so I hope you're not tired of beach pictures! This one-shoulder ruffle bikini is probably my favorite bathing suit I've ever owned. The bikini top is super feminine because of the lavender color and the one-shoulder ruffles… yet the bottoms are fun and sporty (and also provide full coverage!). I'm also loving my mom's tankini (similar ones below) because of the bright colors and mesh overlay. We're both a sucker for pretty colors!

What are everyone's plans for Memorial Day?! I have had a little too much sun this week (translation = I am sunburnt) so I may have to spend this Memorial Day indoors! It's a good opportunity to shop the Memorial Day sales online, right?? I'll be back tomorrow with some of my favorite sales going on right now so be sure to check back. And happy Friday!
