a lovely living

Black + Green

Hi guys! Can anyone believe it’s Monday already? I read something yesterday that said, “I need another day between Saturday and Sunday”, and I couldn’t agree more! I just can’t seem to keep up with our laundry this summer. I can’t quite figure out how my kids dirty clothes as quickly as they do, which […]

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: First Look

Happy Friday, all! The #nsale insanity is officially underway. For those of you that have a Nordstrom card, shopping is opened up to you. For the rest, you can begin filling your carts until it opens to everyone else at the end of next week. On the chance that you’re unfamiliar, this is the sale […]

Top Paint Picks

As many of you know, I’ve been helping to design and decorate homes over the past few years which is basically a dream come true for me! I began playing with paint colors when we moved into our home just over three years ago. Prior to that we had bounced from condo to condo where […]

Striped Midi

Happy Monday, all! We are coming off of a weekend spent fully in the sunshine and it was glorious. Bike rides, amusement parks and plenty of pool time kept our family of five perfectly happy.

Insta Lately

Anyone else totally thrown off this week? It feels like the best Tuesday ever, being that it’s actually Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th. I’m happy to report that after Audrey’s strong opposition to fireworks last year, she was bright eyed with excitement this time around! And despite the exquisite display, Madelyn […]

Go Fourth with Sales!

Happy 4th everyone! We have a wonderful relaxing day ahead of us and I hope you do too! I didn’t have much planned for the blog today, but I wanted to pass along a few great sales that are happening so you didn’t miss them. Have a great day and enjoy those fireworks!! Anthropologie: Extra […]


I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to all the festivities this week! July 4th always creeps up quickly and I hate to see it go as the summer seems to fly by afterwards. I wore this somewhat festive, yet always summer appropriate, watermelon top with my favorite denim skirt […]


Happy Friday guys! And a summer Friday nonetheless, even better! With swim team every morning for my two eldest and our church’s Sports Camp every evening this week, it’s been a busy few days. I think we’re all looking forward to a relaxing weekend where not much more than friends and pools are involved :) […]

Independence Day Inspiration

Can anyone else believe July 4th is only a week away?! When we watched the fireworks last year, Audrey was terrified and snuggled into my chest the entire time while we huddled in the back of our car. Obviously I hope she’ll be more excited this year, but there’s a small part of me that […]

Striped Maxi

It’s been a little while since I’ve come across a good maxi dress. The scoop neck and capped sleeves make for a flattering fit but the stripes are what really won me over. I wore these pretty pink flats so that I was able to chase my littles in and out of church yesterday, but […]
