In The Garden on The Docks

As ya'll know, I have been on a short hiatus this past week. I just returned back to Tennessee from my fabulous vacay in Hilton Head. It was truly an amazing trip with the best family. I had hoped to take more photos for outfit posts, however I only had time for one mini photo shoot. It was our last night in Hilton Head and we had dinner at Hudson's Seafood House on The Docks. The restaurant was a great place to celebrate by Uncle J's birthday. Beforehand, there was a long wait so I had time to snap a few pictures. 
What I Wore: Dress-Lilly Pulitzer Carmine Dress in "In The Garden",Watch-Michael Kors in Rose Gold, Monogrammed Clutch- Etsy Shop Monkeyseeboutique, Monogrammed Sandals-Jack Rogers

For the Love of Burlap

For a while now, I have had an obsession with burlap. Anyone who has been into my home, can see my love for burlap through my decor. I just love how versatile and country chic it is! Here are a few fabulous burlap finds!

"White sand, cold can, koozie in my hand"

Our vacation to Hilton Head is quickly approaching us. Packing and purchasing a few last items are just a few things on my to-do list. Adding beach jams to my iPod, is also a must to complete before being beach-bound. 

I came up with this short list of country beach tunes that are a must! Of course, you can't truly have beach jams without Kenny Chesney and a little Jimmy Buffett. I hope ya'll enjoy this list as much as I do! 

What are your favorite beach/summer jams? Feel free to comment and share!

Lilly Inspired Art in the Making

Painting is a hobby I do every single day. Specifically, I really enjoy painting Lilly Pulitzer prints. I figured I would try it one day, and now I am selling my products in my Etsy shop. Not only am I selling online, I recently found out my products will be for sale in my favorite local boutique: Razzberry'z! Everything has happened so fast and I am beyond grateful. 

I wanted to share what a product in the making looks like. This is an initial being made for a customer, who requested the new Lilly Pulitzer print, "Spa Blue Lobstah Roll." I must say it is my BEST seller!

A Preppy Quiz

What's your definition of preppy? 
My definition of preppy is not completely linked to the South. I believe any person, no matter location, can have a preppy style. The preppy style is about wearing monograms, Lilly Pulitzer, bow ties, pearls, Vineyard Vines, oxford button-ups, and bright colors. However, it is not strictly limited to these items. Just because you are preppy DOES NOT mean you are rich. In my opinion, preppy is all about being classy. You do not need a ton of money to have class. The preppy style is about the classics rather than the fads.

What's your all time favorite brand? 
This is an easy question for me to answer...LILLY PULITZER! I adore all of their clothing and accessories. The bright colors and patterns match my style to a tee. When my outfit consists of Lilly, I immediately feel bright and happy. "Being happy NEVER goes out of style." -Lilly Pulitzer 

What is your favorite Lilly print?
My immediate answer would be all of them. If I have to choose i'd say, "You Gotta Regatta." It is the holy grail of Lilly prints. 

Favorite preppy YouTuber? 
I do not really stay up to date with preppy YouTubers. However, I really adore Danielle Marie. Her YouTube channel is called,"The Makeup by Danielle." I found out about her through Instagram. I follow along and quickly learned that she has an amazing preppy style! 

Jack Rogers or Sperrys? 
Jack Rogers all the way! I literally wear them with everything. They have the ability to turn any outfit into a classy one. My monogrammed and paisley jacks are my ultimate go-to! 

Jeans or Khakis?

Duck Boots, Riding Boots or Hunters?
Hunters, they go with everything. You have the ability to create an adorable look with them in the rain and snow. 

Navy or Black?
Navy, I find that I do not wear much black. 

On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love J.Crew?
10 + J.Crew has nailed the preppy style. You can create an endless amount of perfect outfits labeled with J.Crew.

Favorite Ralph Lauren clothing item?
I would have to say the Ralph Lauren sport shirts are my fave. I create a simple look with this tee-shirt paired with pearls. Not to mention they are super comfy. 

Pearls or bows?
I am saying BOTH, because it is impossible to pick between the two. Pearls and bows are both my favorite accessories because they are such classic pieces. 

Now it is your turn to complete the quiz! Remember to comment with the link to your quiz, once posted on your blog, so others and myself can read it.

The Basics of Golf Etiquette

Thanks to my husband, golf is a new found hobby. He has always loved to golf. At first, I did not know what to think about it. I thought that I would not like it and that it was too tough of a sport for me to participate in. The first part turned out to not be true. My husband and I enjoy playing golf almost every weekend. I always look forward to playing. The second part is somewhat true. It is true, golf is a very tough sport. There is so much to think about when playing. More techniques go into a golf swing than I ever thought was possible. However, it is not impossible. I am learning quickly and becoming better after each time I play. Patience is the key to success. 

Learning the techniques of playing golf, is not the only part to be learned. There are also many rules to consider when on the golf course. I decided to create a basic list of appropriate etiquette for every golfer. I have quickly learned that most golfers take every rule seriously. Becoming aware of these rules will insure that I am always respectful when I am on the golf course. Hopefully, I have made these basic rules clear for anyone else who is a new golfer like myself.

Happy Golfing!
