A little Americana inspo for your holiday weekend, because who doesn’t love the classic red, white and blue for your lake trip or backyard bbq?!

One of my friends wore #1 last weekend on our girls trip, and I’m prettttttttty obsessed – it’s the perfect red. I’ve also had #5 has been on my heavy rotation lately, as it miraculously goes with everything I wear #neutralsalldayeveryday. And can you believe #4 is ONLY $52!? Ideal to throw on over your b-suit for that late dusky dinner. See more of my ‘merica favorites:

A Day On 30A


Seaside, Florida – also fondly referred to as hwy 30A – is our happy place.

As our first trip since Jack was born, and first vacation as a family of 3, I guess you could say we were down right giddy for a weekend at the beach. Nick grew up vacationing in Seaside, so it’s only fitting we create a new tradition of vacationing to this little slice of paradise in the summer.

Our days, although now a little different with a baby, are packed full (mainly so Nick can cover all his favorites in one weekend). Here’s what our days looked like this year:

– 8am –

Our days start early! So mornings usually involve grabbing breakfast at Great Southern Cafe and stopping by Modica Market for a mimosa roadie to stroll the neighborhood #vacation. This involves house hunting dreaming and numerous Zillow searches.

Next up: the beach! Posting up in the sand looks a lot different with an infant. Luckily, we brought this baby pool to keep Jack entertained under the umbrella. He loved it! It kept him cool and out of the sand. Not to mention fully occupied #happymom

– 12pm –

Lunch time! A break from the sun, and an excuse to bike up to the Shrimp or Taco Shack, or hop over to Georges. Also a great time for tidbit to nap :).


– 3pm –

You guessed it, back to the beach!



– 5pm –

Date Night! Sunset drinks at Bud & Alleys and dinner at Cafe 30A
