Cheers to Friday + The Weekend!
One of my very best friends from Chicago, who now lives in DC, is flying in today to visit for the weekend! She is one of Kip’s best friends from college as well, and actually the person that introduced the two of us, so we both are so excited see her and take her around Atlanta and veg at the house together.
It’s been hot hot hot this week and this romper has been the perfect thing to wear to survive the heat. It even has an open back for some extra ventilation 🙂
// FLORAL PRINT ROMPER //

UPDATE: sold out at Nordstrom, available here at BCBG for 30% off !

I want to thank all of you for your e-mails and comments and messages with tips for our trip next month to Italy and Amsterdam. Y’all are always SO HELPFUL it is crazy. I got so much information sent to me in a few hours that I never would have found with days and days of searching the web myself!
I’ve been compiling a list of everything everyone recommendsand will definitely share it with all of you.
Unfortunately all of the Anne Frank tickets are sold out already – which I had expected since we booked Amsterdam so late, but that’s okay we will just have to wait in line! Thank you all for the heads up about the tickets though!

The top that sold out in a heartbeat is now available in a dress! So stinking cute and a total classic.
speaking of “the top” they came out with a striped version! – still in all sizes! – that may be even cuter.
I just found these wooden stacked wedges at DSW and I am in love. They are so comfy too!
I have the shirt version of this chambray dress as it’s soft as butter and so flattering.
Obsessed with this printed skirt gown for a summer wedding or event.
The cutest navy + white striped romper I ever saw.
There is a “new to me” brand called Taylor Dresses that caught my eye – for the name and for the dresses!
A few of my favorite styles:

I want to walk around Italy wearing this wrap skirt all week! So chic.
they have the same gorgeous pattern in a silk cami as well!
I am obsessed with this white lace tunic top – and it’s under $80!
It already sold out on Nordstrom but I found it at Bloomingdales!
I am all about the fun, colorful sandals that are so fashionable for summer. A few favorites:
DESIGNER SPLURGE // BROWN LEATHER AND BEADED // SUBTLE BUT METALLIC SLIDES
UNDER $30 COPYCAT // MY FAVORITE // AS RAINBOW AND TASSEL’Y AS IT GETS
FRINGE SLIDES // UNDER $30 ANKLE-WRAP
For those of you alarmed by all of that color,
I am equally obsessed with this blush sandal in the same style
The perfect sheath dress for a more casual or daytime summer wedding.
