Warming Up

Bear in a bag!

The temperatures have warmed up quickly here in Charleston! All of a sudden we went from 65-70 degree days into almost 90 degrees with lots of humidity. Oof. This Midwesterner is still adjusting to the steamy Lowcountry air! But with the quick change of temperatures means our flowers have been POPPING.

Living in Charleston has really allowed me to dive deep into my dress obsession. I feel like I’ve built up quite the collection of breezy dresses that work for all sorts of temperatures. Even in the winter here, dresses are appropriate, and with lots of events around town I have found myself becoming a bit of a hoarder. This dress from Juliet Dunn is a style that I have in a couple of colors. It is the perfect beach-to-day-to-night dress and the details and fit are so beautiful. You just feel sort of ethereal in it. I found some pretty colorways here, here, and here (love this for the 4th!).

I’m wearing the Harbour Island Shortie Bon Bon necklace from Liz’s new brand, Marea! I love it! The colors are so fun and it just goes with everything. A happy addition to any outfit!

Can we take a second to talk about Bear? He is growing so fast! I swear every day he looks a little bigger. Also, he is such a puppy. Chewing and peeing on EVERYTHING. But he is also the sweetest thing, sleeps through the night, and is learning what is right and wrong. We are remembering that it takes a couple of months for things to click with puppies so we know we will be out of the woods one day soon. For now, George and Bear and two toddlers getting into EVERYTHING.

Will you do me a favor and leave me a comment below with topics you want to see on HAF? I feel like I have been in a creative rut lately and would love your suggestions! One thing is for sure, you can expect a lot more dresses in the months ahead. This look will be on repeat.

  9. Hi! I’ve been a reader since before you were married and just had a son – I’d love to hear about your favorite brands for them, as well as anything summer related for children (like sunscreen/skincare, swimsuit brands etc). I love hearing about all things Charleston/surrounding areas!

  10. All these comments are stop on. I think we love whatever you throw at us. Your style is almost like art. Its just beautiful to look at. Your kids are so fun and you let us know the real side of kids…they can be hard and crazy but the best. Charleston is such a romantic setting that I love anything you share about the area. Pictures, recs, your daily life there, just random pictures of the streets/beach/sunsets…all of it. Your recipes are so yummy too! I’m sure this is no help in direction but really everything you share is wonderful. Its so well rounded and genuine.
