red, white & blue

Even though my days are completely mixed up as I’ve been swimming through what feels like a never-ending sea of moving boxes (unpacking is no joke, y’all!) there’s one date keeping me tied to reality… July 4th!

Andrew is so excited to use his smoker for the first time (my wedding gift to him) and I am so excited to spend time cooking and out on our patio! I might just attempt my mama’s homemade strawberry shortcake… we shall see!

Today, I thought it would be fun to share some red, white and blue inspiration. Even though this color scheme is prime for the upcoming holiday, they’re actually my favorite hues to wear all summer! So whether you wear them now or later, I hope you enjoy!

What are y’alls plans for the 4th?

Love from the Sunshine State,

    I’m doing something to which I know you can relate … PACKING for our move to Gainesville!!! 🐊🧡💙🐊🧡💙 I’m overwhelmed with what to KEEP, what to SELL on Nextdoor (we sold six things on it last week), what to DONATE and good ole what to THROW out piles everywhere. 🤪

    Happy Independence Day and blessings in your new home. Item #2, the knotted headband, is such a great update of the classic beach look, and if you want to see a great example of this watch the old movie To Catch A Theif, filmed on the Riviera in the South of France, where Grace Kelly wears the full cap with the knotted twist, and is absolutely adorable! Your entire collage today is a lovely, wearble, update of that classic, chic, look. Love it!

    A polyvore collage of clothing items? That’s all you’ve got? Come on Kate. Between this and the unnecessary amount of wedding posts I’m afraid you’ve lost a reader.
