Mother’s Day is May 10th aka right around the corner (trust me it will sneak up fast). I’ve gathered some of my favorite gifts to give my Mom and some of her  favorite gifts to receive whether it’s from me, my brother or Dad! I’d say my favorite is the Fujifilm Instax Instant Film Camera because it captures memories and what’s better than that? My other favorites are the Tory Burch Fit Bit, they have been a must lately..I’ve been dying to get my hands on one but have yet to! You can also never go wrong with a pair of comfy slippers or a new bath robe either!

 Here’s a little color to brighten your day! Miserable rainy day here in Tuscaloosa…I’ve spent it laying in bed sick catching up on homework. Having a total case of the Mondays! But I figured this adorable Three Islands Clothing dress could bring in some colorful happiness. I paired it with my favorite basic neutrals: Kendra Scott Earrings, Gigi New York Clutch and Rebecca Minkoff rock studs. I have on the Julie Dress in Gulf Green Plaid it’s the MUST HAVE dress at only $76! It has an elastic waist band..notice in the pictures and an adorable v-neck with a lot of stretch! It’s going to be a great summer dress!

Hope y’all have a great Monday!

I wasn’t kidding in my instagram when I said I’ll be in this romper all summer long…and the sandals too. This romper is going to be perfect for going out or even wearing as a beach cover up…and the sandals. I’ll probably wear them out in a month because I will wear them nonstop. Plus, they are $125 and SO CUTE. I’m deciding on if I should get the pair in black too!

Be sure to check out the Wednesday link up below!!



Hope y’all have a great day

Matt and I escaped for a quick night to his farm and boy did we need it! He cooked steaks and his famous brown rice while I drank wine and baked (burnt) cookies. After that, we watched Maid in Manhattan and No String Attached…I can’t believe I talked Matt into watching BOTH of those movies. It was peaceful and perfect, just what we both needed.

I can’t get over how beautiful the weather is today! Yesterday it was windy and cold but now the sun is out and shining bright. Wishing I had a on a bikini and was laying out by the dock! But I can always count on my jeans and cowboy boots to keep me in my comfort zone!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Born To Shop

I was born to shop. Can you blame me? Nothing like a low key sweatshirt like this to spruce up an outfit. Plus, who doesn’t get a kick out of this? I’ve gotten so many comments from just wearing this around town. Great to throw on and do some errands in. I also love these railroad stripped jeans from J.Crew Factory they are so soft and perfect for the summer time.

LikeToKnow.It

Ever wonder how LikeToKnow.It works and why you should sign up for it on Instagram?

Some people prefer to follow my instagram account rather than following and subscribing to my blog so it gives those people the opportunity to shop my looks easily! Also, sometimes I don’t get to respond to outfit questions as quickly because I’m busy (believe it or not I’m not ALWAYS staring at my phone). This service allows instagram users to get exact outfit details almost instantly sent to their inbox if they are signed up with the service! Lastly, it is a way for bloggers to make money! I am part of rewardStyle, which is a commission based affiliate program where you earn a small commison when items are purchased from your website using a special link. It’s a win, win situation because y’all get your outfit details instantly and I earn a small profit to put towards keeping up with Shotguns & Seashells

Below are some looks that you can shop via LikeToKnow.It

If you have any questions please let me know! I’m more than happy to answer them for y’all 🙂

Y’all Alabama has been SO cold! It snowed Wednesday night but of course all the snow disappeared in the morning!  All I wanted to do was take cute pictures in it, but I didn’t get the chance. Anyway, we are suppose to have decent weather this week so I’m excited to get the chance to put on shorts when I walk to class! (Yup, it’s come down to looking forward to that).

Hope y’all have a great Monday!

Rodan + Fields Routine

robe: Spa La La // necklace: Kendra Scott // Unblemish // Soothe //

I have been using the  Rodan + Fields skin care line for 5 months now and I’m obsessed! I’m finally able to say that I’m happy with my skin and how it looks for the first time in a long time! I also love that Rodan + Fields has made me get into a routine with my skin care! For more info on my journey with R+F check out this post. I’ve also been so lucky to be able to pick out the products that work best for my skin too! There are very few skin care lines that allow you to do that. I use the Unblemish 1,3, & 4 and the Soothe 2 & 3 regimes to match my skin type. If you are not on a skin care routine I highly suggest checking out Rodan + Fields!

If you are interested in Rodan + Fields, please contact Nicole Grice-Noll

Spring Break 2015 Essentials

Spring Break Essentials by Shotguns & Seashells

 // hat // sweater // colorful bikini // espadrilles // white bikini // sunglasses // earrings // maxi coverup // flip flops // bag // nail polish // lipstick // button down cover up // towel //

I don’t get to go on a tropical Spring Break this year with all my friends because I’ll be in NYC doing interviews for my internship this Fall. I’m basically bummed out that I won’t be able to spend it with my friends but I know I’m going to have a blast in NYC (hoping it will be kinda warm). Just because I don’t get to enjoy the warm tropical weather doesn’t mean I can’t obsess over the SB essentials. I do get to go home the weekend after Spring Break so I will get a little sunshine in!

🙂
