What I Wore: Baptism

A few weeks ago I attended a baptism for my cousin's daughter down in Orange County. If you remember I hosted her baby shower back in March. In the weeks leading up to the baptism I told my cousin I wasn't going to be able to make it due to a few other commitments. But I had a trick up my sleeve... I was flying down to surprise her!! One of my other cousins told everyone she was going to the store but she was really picking me up at the airport. It was such a surprise to everyone when I walked in the door!
 
The next morning was the Baptism followed by a luncheon. I ended up wearing a wrap dress, nude wedges and a classic clutch. It was perfect for a family event!
 

 
 
It was a such great weekend spent with family! XO

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I have the day off work which makes the day even sweeter! A few of my favorite things from the past week:

We've been working hard in the back yard all summer making a few updates and planting lots of new plants. It's great to see some of our hard work pay off in the way of new blooms on the hydrangeas!


Have you heard that Rifle Paper Co has come out with a new fabric line?! The fabrics are totally gorgeous and at great prices too. I can imagine this one recovered on a accent chair and this one made into a little girls' ruffle dress. 


This week was our annual block party and I made a pineapple upside bundt cake. It was my first attempt at a bundt cake and I think it turned out pretty good!
I used this recipe.


My summer tablescape. Love all the bamboo accents! The napkin rings were a thrift find in Maui and the chairs were a birthday gift. 


What is everyone up to this weekend? After several weekends of travel we are keeping it low-key. And looking forward to watching the Olympics tonight!

Outfit: Easy Summer Dress

Well hello there! It's been a busy summer over here and I'm happy I finally get some time to share some of the things I've been up to!

This dress has been my go-to outfit of the summer. The temps have been over 100 degrees pretty consistently for the last week or two and the lose fit plus lightweight cotton make it an easy choice. Perfect for running errands on the weekend or a happy hour on the back patio.
