TGIF! We have survived our first week back to school and back to the grind! Thank goodness Sterling loves his teacher and his class, he has not complained once this week about having to go to school and that makes me so happy. I feel so blessed we are zoned for such a great school.
My neighbors gave me this coffee mug and I think it is so funny! Drinking my coffee in it this morning:)
I can’t get over how grown up Sterling looks after this Summer. He really is the sweetest boy, he makes me so proud.
I could not help but laugh on the first day I took Sterling to school. Once he was gone Frances made a beeline to his room and grabbed all his favorite stuffed animals that he never lets her touch. She was so proud of herself.
Frances doesn’t start school til after Labor Day and it has been nice to have some one on one time with her. With two I never feel like I give either of them enough one on one time. She is rocking my sunglasses on our lunch date.
My Off Shoulder Dress from this Summer is now on sale plus extra 30% off. Not many sizes left, I just wore it again this week. It is such a great easy and effortless dress.
We are having happy hour with our neighbors tonight and I think I am going to make these heirloom tomato cups. I have so many cherry tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market and this will be a great way to use them!
I have started 3 books in the past few weeks and I can’t seem to get into any of them. I want a book I am excited to get in bed to read- any fabulous book recs? I just downloaded the new Jane Green book Falling and I am hoping it does the trick I usually love her books- and if you have not read any of her books I highly recommend Tempting Fate, Saving Grace, Summer Secrets, and Family Pictures.
I am loving all the new Mara Hoffman pieces that are coming out. I recently ordered this dress and I am planning to wear it Saturday night.
It also comes in this blue color combo.
As many of you have probably heard the big Lily Pulitzer sale starts Monday. In the past I have not had a ton of luck for myself at Lily but I am really loving some of the new styles. I have found a few dresses I love and I always love the Elsa blouse. I also adore the little girls dresses, I am hoping to snag a few for Frances Monday morning.
This is a recent Lily dress I bought and wore last night. I love the fit, it is loose swing style. I am wearing a small if you are curious about sizing.
A close up of the colors, they are so pretty.
I randomly bought these quinoa bowls because they were on sale at Harris Teeter and I really love them. They are a great easy lunch. I even mix them into my greek salads if I don’t want to eat them plain. You don’t have to cook them or anything you just mix. Super easy and tasty.
It is no secret I am a huge fan of Beauty Counter products. My sister and I recently decided to team up and be consultants. It was a no brainer because we love the line so much. I will share more about that and our favorites next week, but if you love face masks as much as I do you must try this new Charcoal face mask!! It exfoliates and detoxifies your skin with a mix of clay and charcoal. It really makes your skin feel and look amazing.
