May Must Haves

may must haves
For me, it’s summertime, not springtime but summertime and I’m kicking it off with neons and prints. I’m in love with these bright prints BUT, I also having been drooling over black tulle skirts for sometime now and I have yet to bite the bullet and make my purchase on one. I have also finally found a pair of rockstud sandals that don’t cost $600+ and ones that still look like they are pretty legit. Also, if you haven’t heard of Anna Beck yet, you are now welcome! She makes ADORABLE bracelets, rings, necklaces, and more that are PERFECT for summertime and reasonably priced!
What are you loving this month?

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

mothers day
Mother’s Day is this Sunday and I know my family has plans to go to brunch and sit outside and watch the boats go in and out of the inlet! My Mom has been my best friend for 21 years, my twin, and the one who is always there when I need her, so she deserves the best (every Mother does). I live in a town where citrus, real estate and the beach are a big part of our lives. So, when I saw some of these citrus inspired items I knew they would be perfect for Mother’s Day, especially in my family!
There are only have a few days left to shop so try something that you usually don’t do. Surprise her for once, instead of giving her the basic mani/pedi and massage combo, which my brother and I are guilty of doing.
and remember, Mother’s Day is ALL about HER!

I love you, Mom!

Camo you see me ?

Camo you see me ?

I’ve seen camo trending a lot this year and to be honest I’m shocked but I LOVE it! To me, camo has always been made for hunting, which is a normal activity that I partake in, so I wasn’t expecting to see it in fashion. I must say that I have grown fond of seeing it though, especially from some of my favorite brands.Currently, I’m craving this camo button down, and C. Wonder clutch (plus, you can monogram it..#WINNING). My most recent camo surprise was when I saw that Valentino joined in on this, especially with their sling backs. Can you say crystals and studs? I’d do anything for this shoe, I’d even wear them hunting! The point of this is that camo comes in all different shades, shapes, and styles- now get on this trend!
What do you think about all of this camo?
p.s. my favorite brand for hunting is Under Armour for Women

I’ve told y’all before and I will tell y’all again..I absolutely adore a comfy dress! This chevron dress has been in my closet for a few years and I still love it. It’s perfect to put on whenever you are in the mood to be comfortable and you can easily dress it up or down! I dressed it up here because I was in a fancy mood plus I was dying to wear my new Nine West heels! Happy Monday!

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of cork and Kate Spade New York’s Cork Keds are beyond adorable. I’ve decided that I need a pair for myself, but I was curious if they are a true fit or not! Mint was a big hit last year for spring and it is making a come back again this spring. I can’t get enough of Essie’s Mint Candy Apple it’s a great transition color from winter to spring!  These are just a few of my favorite mint + cork goodies!

What’s in my suitcase for NYC?

I Love New York
I am so excited to go to New York City next weekend for the ENK International Coterie Fashion Market. I am going for a boutique back at home (Vero Beach, FL) called Sassy Boutique! Sassy has been around since as long as I have and it is hands down my favorite store at home, not to mention the owner Deana Marchant, is like my second mother! I get everything I need from there whether it’s a formal dress, jeans, or shoes. Sassy has it! I am also so excited to see my Mom, Deana, and my friend Grace! It has been over a month since I last saw them and I couldn’t be more thrilled. This Alabama girl is headed north, but bringing the south with her! Be on the lookout for my post while I’m in the Big Apple! Also, follow my Instagram shotgunsandseashells to get the most recent updates of our trip!
