Sister Love

Today I’d like to introduce you to my younger sister Kaitlin. She is honestly my best friend and I love her to death. I can talk to her about anything, but I just wish we got to see each other more (boo to such different work schedules). Everyone ALWAYS asks us if we are twins, especially when we did Irish Step Dancing together. Our styles normally differ a little bit, but I’m obsessed with this outfit she wore a couple weeks ago when we went shopping (we love shopping together with my Mom). Thanks for being on the blog today Kaitlin!

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway here! It ends at midnight.

Casual Weekend

I wore this outfit a few weekends ago while getting a hair cut and then doing some shopping with the family. I’m seriously in love with this vest and have been wearing it with everything (and I’m currently thinking of ways I can wear it in the fall too). I feel like this was the perfect casual outfit for running around town.

I hope you had a great labor day and don’t forget to enter my giveaway here!

Labor Day

As you read this post I am finally at the beach for the first time this summer! It’s incredibly sad since the beach is only 2.5 hours from Raleigh but work and life got in the way. All that matters though is that we are at the beach now enjoying time with friends. If you’re wondering what I’ve been wearing over the labor day weekend it looks a little something like this. I hope you have an amazing labor day and that you’re doing something fun!

What are you wearing on labor day?


I was born in New Jersey and out of all my parents siblings we were one of the only ones to move away. Even though I’ve lived in North Carolina since I was 5 I’ve honestly always felt like I belong in New Jersey more so than North Carolina. It’s always such a great feeling to go back and visit the Garden State and visit all of our family. We are all really close and have the best time when we are together! My cousin’s bridal shower on Saturday was a blast and on Sunday we ventured to Red Bank, NJ which is where I was born. We went to a diner (a must), went shopping, walked along the water front, and ate pizza. It was perfect and I can’t wait to go back in October!

Thanks for taking these pictures Liz!
