Happy Holidays



Wow, I almost can't believe it's December. The year has come and gone so fast. I know I haven't been very present on the blog. I've honestly just felt that my time was better spent elsewhere. It's been a difficult year, and fashion blogging and continuously posting photos of myself just didn't seem that important to me. It still doesn't. I will continue to add items to my shop, and I posted a holiday gift guide. I do love to shop and select great items for you guys!

I've got some exciting projects in the works. My husband and I have been looking for the perfect home for several years now. Well, we finally found it and will be renovating it. I'm super excited to get started, and I hope it turns out like I envision. I hope to make the time to share part of that journey with you guys. I do LOVE a good renovation project!

I've been busy decorating my home for the holidays and spending time with my pups! There really never is enough time for the pups! Puppy mamas out there...you know what I mean! My cute little poodle, Bentley, is almost 16 now, but he's still my baby! I really just love getting all warm and cozy and snuggling in for the day with them. They love it too!

I hope you are all enjoying your time with your family, loved ones, friends and, of course, fur babies! Be sure to check out my Winter Style Picks and my Holiday Gift Guide!

XOXO,


Julie





Get Ready for Fall

We all have our favorite classic Fall looks. In late Summer and early Fall, I love jeans, a nice top and loafers. Plus, you can't beat a great cardigan sweater! In fact, this is basically my daily uniform. I do love a great casual look! How about you guys, what's your favorite look for Fall? Most of the pieces below are on sale, so if you love what you see, click on the photos and shop the look.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2018 & A Few Random Thoughts



*This post contains affiliate links*
It seems impossible that it's almost Father's Day 2018! Am I right? This year has flown by. I chalk it up, in part, to some of the disastrous events that have occurred this year, which haven't shared on here, and I'm not sure if or when I ever will. That's okay. Things are okay, or as okay as they can be. I will say, take a look around you, at your friends and family and be grateful to God for each and every one of them because when the truly hard things in life occur, they are the ones that will pull you though. You'll pull each other through. I've learned that this year more than I could have ever imagined.

I don't know what it is about green, maybe it's because I'm a May baby, and emerald is my birthstone, but green is just lovely! I'm completely drawn to it. I've eyed and eyed this green dress, and I may have shared it before, but right now, it's on sale for less than $40! Can you even imagine? I mean, it's gorgeous! I see it as a great dress for summer weddings or other events where you need to get a little dressy, and I think gold is the perfect accessory color!

Cute Summer Rompers Under $50

I don't know about you guys, but I'm totally smitten with cute rompers this season! I'm seeing them everywhere, and I'm in love! If you really look, you can find tons of affordable options for less than $50, and, let's be real, the romper is like basically the WHOLE outfit!!  Am I right? I mean, add sandals and a cute bag, and you're ready to go! So, I decided to round up my favorite rompers under $50, and I've added two shoe selections, one wedge and one flat. These should get you anywhere you need to go with any of these outfits, and I've added one straw bag and a great pair of earrings. So easy peasy, which is what I'm looking for in this hot weather!

The Makings for a Cozy Mountain Cottage



The North Georgia Mountains are a special, special place. While we spend most of our time in Florida, very close to Pensacola, we also own a cozy mountain cottage in the North Georgia Mountains. While Florida is great, the Mountains call me home each time. It is so peaceful and relaxing there. Everyone takes life at a slower pace and it truly is just a happy place for me and for others. If you have never visited North Georgia, I highly recommend it. The natural beauty is unlike anything else and you will be content just staring out a window, or taking a walk through the woods, with the cool mountain air breathing down on you.
