With warm weather comes fresh blooms! Cameron Village is unlike any other shopping center in Raleigh, NC because of their living walls located throughout the shopping center that started back in 2013. These walls are changed seasonally, and are full of bright and colorful flowers and plants. There are two different living walls located in the village right now, and another wall is being installed this week which is in collaboration with the North Carolina Museum of Art “You Are Here” exhibit. To celebrate the installation of this living wall, Cameron Village will be hosting a social media contest in partnership with North Carolina Museum of Art on Wednesday. Just make sure to follow Cameron Village for details on how to enter soon!

I’ve been reaching for dresses more often lately, especially with how hot it has been in North Carolina! I recently received this red dress from J.Jill and it is perfect for work and also for the weekend. I love how versatile it is, and also how comfortable it is which is definitely key for me these days. It goes perfectly with this little straw tote that I last wore here, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be the bag that I wear the most this summer. What’s your go to outfit during the summer?

Here are the items that I’m currently craving this week! All of these items put together the perfect casual outfit idea for the weekend, and they are all pieces that I wish I was wearing right now. I can’t get over how stunning these tassel and pom pom statement earrings are and they are only $48 which makes them very budget friendly. I’ve also had my eye on these Steven by Steve Madden sandals that I’ve seen everywhere, and they are definitely great dupes for the pair by Hermes. Which is your favorite, and what are you currently craving?

I love a good manicure, and I especially love wearing bright and fun nail polish in the spring and summer! Before having Charlotte, I was getting gel manicures regularly at Paintbase. It has been difficult to find the time to get my nails done with having an infant, but I’ve been able to get away to Paintbase a few times now which is always a nice treat. Today I thought it would be fun to share my 4 favorite nail colors to wear this time of year:
1. Strawberry Margarita
Strawberry Margarita is the perfect bright shade of pink, and it’s my go to color during the spring and summer. It’s definitely the color that you’ll find me wearing most often.
2. Gelato on My Mind
When I’m looking to step away from pink and orange hues, I love to turn to ‘Gelato on My Mind‘ which is the perfect light blue shade.
3. Cajun Shrimp
Cajun Shrimp is the color that I reach for as soon as the weather warms up. It’s a red/orange color that’s so gorgeous and perfect for a summer vacation.
I love the way that white nails look, and they make me look a little more tan than I actually am which definitely doesn’t hurt. I feel like they do stain really easily during the second week of my gel manicure, but I love how crisp they look during the first week.
What’s your go to nail colors during the spring and summer?
