Life Saver

Good thing I had my Rodan + Fields SPF 30 for sensitive skin with me yesterday! Woke up to find all the places I did not apply this miracle cream burnt! Luckily I did not miss too many spots! Love this product and the rest of the skin care line.

This sunscreen is designed for daily use to protect and nourish skin without irritating it. I have sensitive skin so I usually look for a sunscreen that is fragrance free and hypo-allergenic. This sunscreen is mineral-based with ingredients that can keep the skin’s surface cool while minimizing the appearance of facial redness. This sunscreen is perfect for me and left the areas I applied it glowing and moisturized.

Spring Time in Charleston

What to wear on a spring time date night?? ...this lovely lavender dress from The Stevie Rae Layne Boutique! Here I've styled it with jewels from the fabulous Marlyn Schiff (obsessed with this tassel necklace!) and leopard wedges.  Not only are these shoes right on trend for spring as leopard is being called the "new neutral," but the wedge heel is perfect for all the walking we do in Charleston!

Asti's back!

Happy Saturday! Grab a mason jar, fill it with some sweet lemonade, and join me!

 I am finally unwinding and getting back to what I do best: blogging! This month has been a whirlwind of emotions and traumatic events for me, and I am just thankful to be at peace and have my creative juices flowing again! Here, I am wearing a top I purchased yesterday from Forever 21 for just $22! I love the detail and lace embellishments. I paired it with casual LOFT jeans for a relaxed Friday night look.

Purchase these Mary P. Lamb earrings here!
Just a little Friday evening exploring...

Relaxation time...

Neutral Versatility

We just love this beautiful white top from Luxx Loren! It is so versatile and can be easily styled into many different outfits appropriate for a variety of occasions! This top is one of our favorites; we love finding solid, neutrals that have detailing, such as this one's sheer fabric below the neckline & cap sleeves, to set it apart from a basic white blouse. To show it's versatility, below Asti has styled this top into a fun look she'd wear to a relaxed summer event or out to dinner at the beach with a Boho Beads necklace (show below).  I styled this top for a more conservative look to wear to work with a sweater & then easily transition to happy hour!  As of late, Asti & I have also been obsessing over tortoise print! I absolutely adore the earrings I am wearing below from Sugar Love Boutique and bracelet from Armed & Readi! The turquoise accent in the earrings is the perfect way to incorporate a little color into a neutral toned outfit!
