Fashion Fix Friday {Boho Chic}

Happy Fashion Fix Friday!
Who’s ready for a color explosion?
Me! Me! Me!
I am a HUGE fan of bohemian d├ęcor, linens, clothing, accessories, flower halos, 
and the list goes on!  One of my favorite items that you will see be sporting around in the 
hot summer months is my beloved embroidered cross-body bag from 
Urban Outfitters that I picked up a couple of years ago!
I seriously will never get rid of this gem.  It’s so playful and holds everything!

This is a totally classic pic of my bestie Rebecca and I before leaving on
our annul girls beach trip…bag in tow!

I have been keeping my eye out for more embroidered clutches and cross body
bags and so far this is what I’ve found!

Contemplating {Stripes}


Lately I have been pondering the idea (yet again) of adding wallpaper to our home.
There are so many cool patterns and variations of the once horrid and painful wall coverings that my wheels are turning.  But before I rush out to pick up a few rolls of the nightmare turned stylish goodness I think I want to first try something I’ve been wanting to do since my previous home.
Painted striped walls!
I previously wanted to paint my laundry room in horizontal yellow and white stripes.
Now I am thinking I need to feature an accent wall in my home office with simple black and white stripes. Thoughts?! Don’t you think this would be super fun and by only tackling a smaller accent wall this should be totally doable and completely stress free!   Right?!
I bet Sweet Mama is reading this post going,
“Oh my…if these lines aren’t completely straight and perfect everyone 
prepare for a breakdown!” HA!
No worries, people.  I’ll be as cool as the flip side of my pillow!   
That is, until perfection has been achieved! ;)

But, seriously, How FUN?!






I think in my office space I would go with vertical stripes but, still debating!
The other accent colors planned are soft shades of pink because what southern girl
doesn't love a little blush and bashful.  You can see my office inspiration in this post here.

Love it or Hate it?!

For the Love of Cooking {Eat This + Drink That}

One thing I love on a hot summer day, an ice cold Gin + Tonic!
There is just something so refreshing and crisp about a G + T that I just love.
The second thing I love in the warmer months, Avocado!

Combine the two together for an Eat This + Drink That and 
you have complete perfection!



Here are two simple recipes that will have you 
giggling in satisfaction.

Quote of the Week {Weekend Wrap Up}

This past weekend was amazing!
We took a few days away from the chaos of everyday life
to escape to the beach with family.
We decided to head home yesterday, a day early
to make sure we had our country's beautiful stars and stripes
hanging high for all to see today on  Memorial Day.
We also, decided our lobster-like skin could use a day of rest from the sun!
So far, today has been a day of leisure and I'm loving every minute!

Here is a glimpse into our holiday weekend.  I tried to pry my hands from
all technology while away so I didn't snap too many moments but, they
are definitely tucked away safely in my memory! 

There was beach time and one handsome "cab" driver
that scooped us up at the end of the day! 


And we fished off the deck at the in laws beach home.
Daddy Gaither had some success!
Scott caught a turtle and I caught a tree!




There were walks on the waterway and a photo op
at the family beach home pier that Scott used to go to when 
he was a little boy! 


From our family to yours, we hope you had a beautiful and safe 
Memorial Weekend!

Battle of the Sexes

Scott’s office is another room in the house that has been a work in progress.  
As I’ve told you all before, Scott served 10 years in the Air Force and his dad served over 
20 years in the Air Force.  So as you can guess Scott is no stranger to moving.  
He was born in Japan, graduated high school in Iceland and has fought for our country on 
3 tours overseas with countless moves in between.  For his office I envisioned a world map as the backdrop with a few shadow boxes to showcase his many accomplishments throughout the space.   
We picked up the most awesome vintage teachers desk a while back for $30!!!   
It gives off the most masculine and vintage feel.  I just love it!  Scott is on board with my envisions for the room except for the world map.  He is NOT a fan!   
He instead would like to have a wood American Flag to hang behind his desk.  I have to admit I had already spied several on Pinterest that I loved but, I still had my eye on the world map.   
Again, he’s traveled the world and I thought how cool?   
Maybe even pin all the places he has been?  You know that say, “Pick your battles”   
well I think I will wave my white flag on this one!   
You win love...I think?!

What I envision...

What the hubby envisions...




And how gorgeous is this?!

I want to wish you all a safe and beautiful holiday weekend! 
May we always remember and never forget those that selflessly fight for our country every day 
so that we remain the land of the free and home of the brave!

 I am officially on vacation!
