Like I told y’all before, Margaret and I thoroughly enjoyed the Hazen Jewelry photo shoot. This was the second look of the day. Think luau meets summer pool party.

I have seen the palm pattern everywhere recently, so I tagged some of my favorites pieces featuring this pattern.

My mother and I found these delightful chairs at an antique store in Memphis. They will pair nicely with the dining table and bench we have in our new apartment in Dallas, AND what’s even better is that we got them for a bargain! We may even recover the cushions to brighten the space.

I just returned from Nashville to visit a friend, and my oh my how I love this city. I got the grand tour even though I’ve been there a thousand times and somehow missed many amazing spots. We visited Downtown Franklin, Pancake Pantry (of course) and Percy Warner Park to name a few. Can’t wait to visit you again, RC!

One of my goals for the few weeks I’m home is to clean out my room. This is quite the task because I’m quite the hoarder. I found a coupon from 2002, an assignment book from middle school and my glasses from second grade. As you can see, it’s time to move on. Goodwill and Plato’s Closet have become my new best friends.

I have been able to get rid of 5 trash bags worth of stuff and it feels great. This is spring cleaning at its finest.

I paired the jewels with two Tibi pieces, both of which have been on the blog before. Mixing and matching goes a long way when creating new outfits. You don’t always have to buy something new to feel like you’re wearing a new outfit.

Vintage Lilly Pulitzer. That’s all I have to say.

Hazen Jewelry is a jewelry line designed by SMU grad, Taylor Miller. Taylor created the line at an early age in 2002, inspired by her grandmother’s costume jewelry. She has unique pieces sold online, in boutiques around the country, and in her Dallas showroom.

My friend, Margaret and I had great fun modeling her jewelry in vintage Lilly Pulitzer. Taylor thought of everything when setting up the shoot, which is why the photos turned out amazingly. Shoutout to Rachel Heacox Films, as well.

If only we were actually in Palm Springs.

If you haven’t noticed, the bandana is back in style. I used to wear them as a child, and it’s nice to see a trend resurface. There are many ways to wear your scarf: as a headband, neckerchief (tie in front), pointed scarf (tie in back), and as a ponytail scarf. I have linked a few of my favorites below.

So my sweet boyfriend, Henry, gave me these headphones for graduation, and I’m already obsessed. My old ones would always get tangled in my necklaces, but these stay behind your neck. The sound is also extremely clear and wipes out excess noises. I definitely recommend these for those who exercise often.

The Brooks Museum featured a tape artist the last couple of weeks. He created an entire mural just out of painter’s tape. Checkout the exhibit.

This will be my summer go-to outfit: a lightweight button down and distressed denim. I thought the slides would be hard to pair with, but surprisingly, I’ve worn them with most neutrals, any denim, and muted patterns. Also, the slides are on sale, so get them while you can!

Happy Summer!
