Summer List

I have seen fun summer lists around the web and wanted to join in! Here are the things I'm looking forward to:

I am dying for the ultimate pair of jean shorts. I don't have one pair! If you have any favorites, please let me know.

Here are some other yummy popsicle recipes I have bookmarked:
Peanut Butter Banana healthy + easy!
• Pina Colada
Strawberry Shortcake
• Funfetti Creamsicles perfect for parties!
Green Monster
Pineapple Orange Banana

Can't wait to make these!

We bought these popsicle molds at Target ($3). But you can also get some at Ikea ($2) and Sur la table ($15).

Yay for summer!

5 Ways to Incorporate Tassels this Summer

Tassels are such a fun trend and I love them for the summer! Here are some of my favorites:
DIY tassel sandals // Tassel keychain // Tinsel drink tassel // Embroidered tassel shirt // Agate + Tassel necklaces

There are lots of diys out there and Etsy is also a great source (for affordable finds + to support small buisness!). I love the agate & tassel combo. And those keychains would be so fun on a clutch too!

Father's Day Gift Guide

Hope you're having a great week!

Father's Day is just around the corner. So, I wanted to put together a gift guide of fun things I've seen around the web.

I am loving that luggage tag, even for me! And I bought the bird a similar shaving set for Valentine's Day and he loves it! This is a popular and highly reviewed shaving cream if you want to complete the set.

Happy Gifting!

Casual Summer Outfit

I'm not sure if "What I Wore Wednesday" is still a thing, but I'm playing anyway. It is in the 80's this week and I was excited to bring out some summer pieces.
Here is the look recreated, with some of the same pieces:
v-neck tee // panama hat // coral pants // leather belt // silver lake tieks

I bought these pants a couple seasons ago, but they look like the same ones. And the best part is that they're only $30 from Zara.

And I finally got a pair of the fabric (vegan) Tieks. Love them!

Trip to Charleston

I wanted to include a Part II to our trip to the south. Plus, there was no way I could leave out Charleston.

When we found out we'd be traveling to the Carolinas, I was very set on visiting Charleston. So in between the two-week trip, we took a weekend detour and it did not disappoint. Charleston was so pretty and beyond charming.

We rented a VRBO in Charleston (the blue cottage in the last pic). It was so cute and the inside was spacious and modern. 
The only downfall was the location was on the outskirts of town. Still walkable to everything, but not in the greatest area.

• Restaurants
The Daily (by Butcher & Bee): Perfect for breakfast on-the-go. Great coffee, juices, breakfast + pastries
Brown's Court Bakery: Delicious fresh pastries and coffee. Very cute spot.
Five Loaves Cafe: Great casual spot to eat on the north end of King Street
Husk: Great southern food + drinks
Poogan's Porch: Fun southern vibe + food

• Site-Seeing
King's Street shopping: Popular spot for shopping and restaurants
Charleston Farmer's Market: Saturdays, April-December
Charleston Waterfront Park: Pretty views and fun swings to lounge on
Walk along The Battery: Beautiful plantation style homes, historic landmarks

I was also lucky enough to meet up with some lovely bloggers (Jillian, Cait + Meg)! So sad we didn't snap a pic together. Next time!

Definitely visit this beautiful city if you have the chance. I would definitely go back!

Here is Part I: Trip to Nashville in case you missed it.
