This summer we have seen the pool float trend literally take over pools. I’ve jumped on board and grabbed myself a strawberry icing donut float and now I’m contemplating grabbing a pretzel float (one of my favorite snacks BTW) and a flamingo float! I mean I am from Florida so I do spend a majority of my time floating around in the pool on the weekends!

Which pool float is your favorite?

Chambray is forever staple whether it’s in the fall or summer. I personally love to style my chambray pieces with more casual and neutral items to look laid-back. Plus, there is nothing better than being casual and comfy and adding a little bit of bling on to your feet!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

MacarOn Cafe

Macaron Cafe in NYC

I was lucky enough to have MacarOn Cafe send me some of their delicious macaroons just in time for me to enjoy on Memorial Day. They sent me their Luxury Gift Box with 6 delicious flavors (the coconut one was my favorite). They have 4 stores in New York but you can also order online with them and customize your box. They have flavors like peanut butter, creme brûlée, grapefruit and of course, your basic vanilla and chocolate…but literally the flavors are unlimited.

I know that I will be paying them a visit when I move to New York in the Fall…most likely multiple visits because if we are being honest…macaroons are a way of life and MacarOn Cafes are to die for! Plus, macaroons make the best gift for birthdays, celebrations and even graduation! **4th of July is coming up and they have ADORABLE 4th of July themed macaroons** Start shopping now here and start drooling…..you won’t be able to stop. I promise!

follow them on Instagram and Facebook

I hope everyone is having a great week and had a great Memorial Day!

Here’s to kicking off summer! I’m officially home in Florida for 3 weeks before I go back to Alabama for one more class before I move to NYC in August. If y’all haven’t heard yet, I will be interning in NYC for the fall semester with Tibi and I’m vey excited! If you’re from NYC I’d love to hear about some of your favorite things to do in the city. I’ll be doing a lot of exploring on my days off.

Now to the Lilly For Target jumpsuit…y’all I woke up at 7am and went to the local Target at 7:30 waiting in line with 40 other people. Luckily, I was close enough in line to the point where I was actually able to get a decent amount of items including this jumpsuit. I LOVE it!

Enjoy the Thursday link-up below!

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!

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!

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!
