The first full day we were in the Outer Banks, it was super cloudy and a little rainy making it the perfect day to explore the area. We headed over to Beaufort which was about thirty minutes from where we were staying in Emerald Isle. Beaufort is known for many things, my favorite being it's where a lot of Nicholas Sparks movies were filmed. He is one of my guilty pleasures and it was so cool to walk around and feel like I was in one of his stories! You can even take a tour and see all the locations but Mike wasn't really down for that (can't imagine why?)!

This floral dress was the perfect piece for walking around the quaint, picturesque, town full of love stories! I love that the sleeves give this dress an almost romantic feel. I knew I loved this dress online but I love it even more in person, the soft colors, button detailing, and side slit, and mostly the price of under $30! I got so many compliments on it! 

P.S. We ate at Front Street Grill when in Beaufort and I'm still dreaming of the food, specifically the truffle fries! If you've ever in the area you have to check it out!

Bogue Inlet Pier

If you're following along on Instagram (if not, you can here!) you'll know that Mike and I spent half of last week down in North Carolina with his family for a wedding. We stayed on the beach in Emerald Isle which is part of the Outer Banks and it was so beautiful. The water was warm, the sand was perfect, and the people were so nice. We already have plans to head back one day! 

One of my favorite parts about traveling is discovery new places. Before we go on a trip, I research the area (mostly on Pinterest) to see what cool sights, attractions, and places there are. When I was looking up Emerald Isle, the Bogue Inlet Pier kept popping so I knew we had to make a stop. Luckily, it was just a five minute drive from where we were staying so it was easy to pop over!

Emerald Isle is not too far from the area where Nicholas Sparks lives and where most of his books/movies were based on/filmed, so I couldn't help but constantly feel like I was in one of his stories. This pier was no exception. It was easy to see where Mr. Sparks gets his inspiration! 

I bought this dress a few years ago for a trip to Miami and it's always a go-to for beach vacations. The way it flows and billows in the wind along with the bright color makes it the perfect contrast to the beach. While this exact color isn't available, I have found a few that I'm loving and linked them below!

Grey and Pink

Wednesday, May 18, 2016









SHOP THE POST:
Dress / Sandals / Purse / Sunglasses

In warmer months, I tend to reach for dresses way more than pants or shorts. They are easy, simple, and super comfortable in the heat. While my collection of dresses is ever growing, I do make sure to include some variety, causal, dressy, short, maxi, I have them all. I recently decided my casual dresses were lacking so when I saw this grey and pink dress for less than $20, I knew I had to have it! If you can't tell by my branding, grey and pink and two of my favorite colors, especially when together! This dress is jersey and super stretchy making it the perfect material for a hot summer day. I could even seen dressing it up a little with some casual wedges for a date night!

Today we are waking up in Emerald Isle in the Outer Banks of North Carolina of a family wedding! I've never and am so excited to spend a few days exploring, make sure follow along on Instagram to get some sneak peaks!
