My Easy, Go-To Breakfast Favorites

What I Eat for Breakfast

Breakfast has always been the meal I struggle with the most. If I could go without it, I would. I never have the energy in the morning to make it, and I’d honestly rather skip and go right to lunch. I’ve been known to say that cake totally counts as breakfast. It’s a pastry, right? Nonetheless, I know breakfast is super important and can ultimately make or break my day.

I’ve discussed here on the blog a little bit about my health journey, and breakfast is something I’ve gotten better at (although I’m not an expert). I’m sure some of you will read this and think that I don’t eat what I should eat, or that I’m still not getting proper nutrition, but it’s what works for me.

Here are a few meals that are my breakfast “go-to’s”. Continue Reading

Summertime Prints with Julie Brown Designs

Julie Brown Designs Livie Dress

As I said in my Instagram post from yesterday, this weekend can be summarized in two words: vitamin sea. I spent quite a bit of time in the sun, which I have no complaints about. I mentioned previously that I’ve been feeling really overwhelmed with life things, so it was nice to take a step back and enjoy the sunshine with friends who have always felt like family to me.

But, now we’re back to Monday and the usual work grind. Today I’m sharing the perfect outfit to take you from work to happy hour.

What I’m Into Volume 85

Duck Donuts

As I write this, I’m watching Southern Charm and wishing I had one of these donuts…oh and trying not to fall asleep. Therefore, we’ll keep it a little shorter than usual.

I’ll admit, I am completely overwhelmed. The stress is mounting. Some things didn’t go my way recently, and that’s disappointing. Unfortunately, that’s life. Acknowledging it and moving on is all you can do. Not every month, week or day will be perfect. But it does get better.

This week wore me out, but luckily I have a long weekend at the beach. As you’re reading this, I very well could be by the pool or by the ocean, and I may never leave. Continue Reading

Another Striped Tee

J.Crew Striped Boatneck Tee

Yes, it’s another striped tee, but can you really ever have enough? I featured a very similar look before not too long ago on the blog with a different striped shirt. Today I’m keeping it a little more simple. I love this striped boatneck tee from J.Crew. I own it in the black/ivory (pictured here) and the ivory/navy. You can’t go wrong with either, so why not have both? It’s also the perfect weight for summer. I was comfortable outside but warm enough in the air conditioned restaurant.

By the way, how gorgeous are the flowers in this photo?! Continue Reading
