Sparkles and Sunshine: May 2017

Chambray Off The Shoulder Dress

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

I absolutely love living in Florida. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the beautiful beaches, flowers, and sweet little towns. I've never really had a favorite flower, but I know what I like. As Chandler and I were driving around Ponte Vedra, I saw these stunning flowers on one side of the road and immediately pulled over!
As soon as we pulled over, I started thinking about all of the color pairing opportunities there are with this dress. You truly could put any pop of color with this and it would look good! Not to mention, the off the shoulder details will show of your gorgeous summer tan!

Nana Teresa's Bake Shop - Fernandina Beach, FL

Monday, May 22, 2017

Happy Monday beauties! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.

Chandler and I absolutely love exploring new places. I'm always astonished by what wonderful places are within an hour to two drive of our home. The other weekend we decided to explore the downtown area of Amelia Island in Fernandina Beach.

Neither of us have ever been to the downtown area so it was a great new place to explore! This town is filled with fun shops, colorful hotels and restaurants, and a beautiful view.

Anything that is colorful and happy always catches my eye. We were lucky enough to stumble upon the cutest bakery in Fernandina. Nana Theresa's Bake Shop had so many delicious pastries, cupcakes, and my favorite, macaroons!!!

Chandler and I tried three delicious macaroons and a yummy chocolate dessert. I think my favorite part of this entire bakery, besides the macaroons of course, was the interior! If I could have one room in my house that looked just like this, I think I would be in heaven! I think I need the poster of the macaroons below in our home too. You think Chandler will mind? :)

Favorite Summer Pool Floats

Monday, May 15, 2017

It is unofficially summertime in Florida! Florida really only has two seasons: Very hot and not as hot. The temperatures are starting to be back in the 80’s and 90’s which means it’s the perfect time to hang out by the pool or head to the beach!

I’ve been obsessed with my Sunnylife Gold Swan Float since I bought it from Francesca’s last year. Sunnylife’s cute floats take your pool or beach day  to the next level! You can get these directly from Sunnylife’s website (linked below) or you can find their floats at Nordstrom, Asos and Modclothodcloth! Francesca’s has a different brand of pool floats this time, but they have some super cute options that are also linked below!

I'm also still IN LOVE with my swimsuit from Aurora Swimwear. I first featured this swimsuit in my packing post and haven't stopped wearing it! They recently launched some new arrivals which are absolutely stunning and pair perfectly with any giant pool float.😊 Since they're so popular, they sell out quick, so make sure to get yours before they're gone!

Here are some more of my pool float favorites:

Diesel's Intermediate Training Graduation

Thursday, May 11, 2017

I am so proud, yet again, of my little man Diesel. He has now completed the intermediate level of dog training at Petsmart! I have to take a minute to brag about our amazing trainer Katie. We definitely got lucky at our local Petsmart because Katie has been the best person to work with. Not only does she have an extensive knowledge of obedience training, but she also has been super flexible about making up a class when we were unable to attend our normal time. She’s also great about giving training advice on anything we’re unsure of.

If you're searching for a great place to start obedience training, I highly recommend checking out your local Petsmart and meeting the trainer. The socialization the dogs get during their training session is great and they really do learn a lot! Diesel, Chandler and I can't wait to start his advance classes this week.
P.S. Katie also helped take the photo above J

Lemon Printed Romper

Monday, May 8, 2017

Happy Monday everyone!

I know it's been a hot minute since I posted, but I'm back! Today I'm sharing this adorable romper from Francesca's. I love anything with a fun print and the lemons on this romper are the cutest touch for spring or summer!


I'm wearing a size medium in this romper. It fit a little big in the top and perfect in the bottom.
