A Few Randoms for Your Friday + An OOTD

We celebrated my youngest sister’s 30th birthday earlier this week with a little drive-by!  All six girls are currently ALL in their 30s!

Effie had her eye check-up this week.  Her glasses are a little broken, so we needed to get a new prescription in order for her to get a new pair.  She’s been wanting to get a pair of clear ones.  They come in next week and I can’t wait to see them on her!

If you’ll remember earlier during the quarantine, Effie broke off her two front teeth and bit completely through the middle of her chin in a boat accident.  It was scary to say the least.  Took her in this week to get them checked on and thankfully they didn’t have root canals!  So the dentist just had to smooth them out a little bit more to get rid of some of the jagged edges.  Would you believe Effie told him he didn’t have to if he didn’t want to because she liked looking different.  I swear, this girl is just something special.  We had to explain that we needed to smooth them down a little just so they wouldn’t cut her tongue or chip off more.

I’ve always loved the swingy Margot Dress as one of my favorite Lilly styles.  It’s even better when it comes in such a cute print as this.  Runs true to size.  Wearing a size small.

And how cute is this one too?  It also comes in a matching dress for the girls.  Can’t wait for them to try them on!  They’re going to love them.  They love a good maxi.  Paired here with these wedges.

This dress is called the Every Dress by Beau & Ro.  While Sara is known for her handbags, recently she was in search of the perfect, easy dress and I think she nailed it when she created this one! Comes in lots of prints too! For fit, it’s true to size. Button it or unbutton it. Tie it in the front or back. Wear the sleeves rolled or long. Make it yours! These dresses are also produced in an ethically conscious, woman-owner factory in Mumbai!  Check out her whole shop here.  Paired here with these wedges.

GIVEAWAY TIME!  Y’all know how much I love my A Salty Soul Sweatshirts.  They’re just the comfiest worn-in tops, based out of Nantucket.  Well, you’re in luck.  I’m giving the one like I’m wearing here away.  To enter, just leave a comment below and tell me where you’d love to be right now if you could travel anywhere in the world!  Winner will be announced on Wednesday!  Paired it here with this pajama set.

Wore this outfit yesterday.  Wanted to share this crossbody with y’all.  I’ve had it since last summer and still love wearing it.  It’s a great bag to have with you when you’re out running errands or whatever else you’re doing on the run.  A great price too, available in lots of colors!  Just grab it and go…and you’re hands-free too! // Top // Shorts // Sports Bra

I hope y’all have a great weekend!  I just ordered some new Lulu pieces.  I’ll report back once they come in and see how they fit.  I ordered this top in the Beechwood Stripe, this top and this top in the Beechwood Stripe, as well.

Don’t forget, you can always shop all of my latest Instagram posts here!

  1. We were supposed to be town-hopping and rose-tasting in Provence this month. Le sigh. That sweatshirt looks perfect for continuing to work from home this fall, and the neutral color means all my masks will pair well with it when stepping outside for errands! #2020

  2. You seriously have the best taste! Also, I’d love to be anywhere with my girlfriends! Covid numbers are still rising where I’m at and we’ve all been trying to do our part by staying home as much as possible. I miss my people! Hope you have the best weekend!

  3. Wow, Effie favors your sister a lot in this picture! You really have just the cutest family. Love reading your blog from Irmo, SC.

  4. I love being home with my family, but if I could be anywhere else it would be Cape Cod, MA. We had to cancel our annual summer plans to visit this year, and we are really missing it.

  5. If I could be anywhere, I’d be in the water, off of my hut, in Bora Bora! I love hot weather and the beach!

  6. If I could go anywhere right now, it would be Vero Beach, Florida to see my mom!
    PS – I have that crossbody/hip bag! It’s the best!

  7. I absolutely love that sweatshirt! So so cute! And Nantucket is one of my favorite places in the world too 🙂 XO

  8. Anywhere?!! Cinque Terre with my family. I would love to enjoy the hike and seaside villages with them. I went many years ago with my Dad and hope to go with my family in a few years! 🤞things are better. Till then 🍷!

  9. I would love to be ANYWHERE with all of my family. So many family trips cancelled this spring/summer and I am missing my tribe!

  10. Your girls are too cute! I am so glad Effie is doing better! Love all of your Lilly post and love the Salty Soul sweatshirt!

  11. I’d go to Positano Italy. My husband and I took our dream trip there in 2005 but didn’t have a chance to go along the coast. I’d love to walk the shore there, and smell the sea and company of the Italian people.

  12. Goodness- if I could travel anywhere in the world right now I’d have to pick a trip that we would have been on now if it weren’t for COVID- to visit family and friends on the West Coast

  13. I love following you on Instagram for all things southern!
    I have purchased several items per your recommendations not only for me but also for my girls.
    Thanks for always sharing!

  14. I would actually love to visit Nantucket. Never been but pictures make it look like the perfect place to slow down. I love the style of houses and general nautical “theme” of the area.

  15. If I could be anywhere right now, it would be in the mountains with my family! Our 4 kids, daughter in law and our new granddaughter, Lucy!!!!

  16. Would love to be on the beach in Portugal… I was supposed to be honeymooning right now but thankful to have the beautiful Charleston beaches instead.

  17. Since we haven’t been anywhere in months…I’ll take any beach. Would love to have that top there with me!

  18. Well I’ve had two trip cancellations so far this year – San Juan and Bahamas. So right now I would love to be somewhere tropical (even though I love 2miles from IOP lol). I just need a getaway!

  19. If I could be anywhere right now I would chose Nantucket. I’ve been there one and it’s the most beautiful place to be in the summer.

  20. I can’t wait to be in the keys. We are going to celebrate my sons 30th birthday! Looking for a manly birthday theme!
    Cute sweatshirt. Love the striped sundress from a previous post and while checking the dress out the Team Pool tee was back in stock! My lucky day!
    Have a great weekend!

  21. My mom and I were supposed to be in Nantucket last month to celebrate her birthday, so Nantucket is number one on my travel wish list!

  22. I’d love to be in Spain right now! We took a trip there 10 years ago (before kids, lol) and had the best time.

  23. I would love to be on a boat…. in Charleston or Nantucket. Currently, I’m in Kentucky gearing up to see if we go go back to school in-person or online. I’m a teacher… 24years in a high school classroom and this is definitely a first for me! I would love to wear my sweatshirt here in the Bluegrass and wherever else I venture!

  24. I’d love to be on the Alaskan cruise that my family and I should be on right now to celebrate my upcoming birthday! Thanks for the chance to win <3

  25. I would love to be in Maui! However, we are leaving for IOP (my parents own a condo there) on Monday!! So excited! I have been shopping at A Salty Soul since I heard you talk about them. Love a good sweatshirt!!!

  26. I would be back on the Cape! We just returned back to Charleston yesterday! I grew up in MA, and we summered on the Cape, it is my happy place! Love this top!!

  27. I LOVE a good worn-in sweatshirt! The fact that this company is based out f Nantucket makes it more fun while I’m reading the book 28 Summers. ☀️ The dreamer in me would say I’d like to be in Bora Bora (hut), but I’m a people person and I miss family (we’re all spread out across the country) so…if I could choose anywhere to be, I’d love to be in Hawaii with my sister and her family right now. ❤️

  28. My Insta memories today reminded me that we were in Charleston on this day last year and I would SO love to be there again! ☀️ Love this shirt so much!

  29. I would go to Pawleys Island in a second if I could! We actually canceled our trip this summer due to COVID-19. It makes me so sad, but Pawleys will be there next year, too!

  30. I’d love to be in the Blue Ridge Mountains where it’s just a ‘bit’ cooler than Augusta right now😝. I NEED this A Salty Soul shirt as I also have the Lake PJs you’re sporting underneath😘. 💜 your style! It’s so on point with mine!!

  31. I would love to be in Arizona visiting my dad and brothers!! Hot but…i miss them! that sweatshirt is SO CUTE !!!!!

  32. If I could travel anywhere right now it would be back to The Cotswolds in England. The most charming villages, towns and houses you can imagine. Straight out of a fairy tale.

  33. We had to cancel our trip to Disney World and then a cruise… wish I was there by the pool with a cocktail in hand! 👙🍹

  34. If I could travel anywhere in the world right now, I would travel to Connecticut. I know that may not sound like an exotic place that many would choose, however my Dad lives there and is turning 83 years old. Covid has put a damper on our travel. 🙁

  35. I would absolutely love to be in Kauai! Celebrating my 5 year anniversary today and nostalgically thinking back to our time there for the honeymoon:)

  36. Love the salty soul shop. Thanks for introducing me! If I could travel anywhere, it would be back home to Charleston so my 4 week old could meet his grandparents.

  37. I would love to be in SC! My husband and I were planning a golf trip that is postponed for now. Love your blog and your style – it’s so fun, bright and positive!

  38. If I could be anywhere in the world right now, I’d travel to Tahiti! I’ve always dreamed of staying on one of those amazing huts on the water 💙🌊

  39. You’re THE Cutest! And LURVE the sweatshirt! So ready to travel. Three beach trips canceled since spring break due to covid, beach not being open, & people weather. Finally was able to escape last weekend to the beach and it was the best. This would be the perfect sweatshirt for a beach trip. But if I was to escape anywhere right now? Somewhere tropical. Most certainly. Exuma is looking beautiful right now. Yeah. I think I’ll go there. 🙂

  40. I would love to be on the Mediterranean cruise we had planned to celebrate our anniversary this summer❤️

  41. Love that Salty Soul sweatshirt. Wish I was sitting on the lawn of The Wauwinet, wearing that shirt, sipping a cold martini and watching the sun go down!

  42. Ohhhh to travel again! I have a 7, 4 and 1 year old so COVID is not the only travel thief 😂. With a 40th bday quickly approaching, I’d love to escape to a salty island somewhere…I’m not even picky. Just sand, saltwater and a few cocktails in hand.

  43. Would be with my kids in Charleston. Took a job in February up in MA, thinking I’d be flying back and forth but with Covid, the trips home have been fewer and farther between. Love showing my teenagers that Mom is an in demand business woman, but being apart is harder than trying to do it all at home. ❤️

  44. Hi Ashley!! I love your style and I also would love to win that sweatshirt!! If I could be anywhere right now it would be Charleston!☀️🌴 Even in this heat!! Love the shopping and dining and near by beaches!! Thanks for all of the clothing recommendations on your blog! I’ve purchased a lot of things you have recommended and I love them all!! Keep them coming!!🤗 Have great weekend!!

  45. Hey!! I would definitely travel to my parents in Wrightsville beach! Buuuut if we are going anywhere, I’m going somewhere that won’t let me! Vancouver!

  46. I would really just love to be in a beach house on Sullivan’s Island with ALL my relatives right now.

  47. I would love to be in the beach in Anna Maria Island Florida. One of our favorite places for a truly relaxing vacation.

  48. Would love to be in seaside with my family. We haven’t been able to take a family vacation this year 😩

  49. Anywhere but here! I live in Alaska, so I can’t even drive to another state. Love my state, but I am feeling STUCK!

  50. Thank you for doing this giveaway- I am obsessed with A Salty Soul too! If I could go anywhere in the world, I would go with my family to Morocco- it’s been at the top of my list for a while now as it looks like such a beautiful and exotic destination 🙂

  51. Oooh I think I’d wear it drinking coffee in my back yard, watching the ocean. We just moved to the west coast from the east coast, (military move) so I’d be staving off my homesickness 😆

  52. Right now I wish I was in the mountains (which is the perfect temperature for that top!!!). I Fortunately we are headed there tomorrow for a quick getaway!

  53. Great outfit ideas! I wish I was sitting beach side at any beach along the Eastern seaboard! We usually travel a lot but we’ve been homebound with the virus and a 5 month old!

  54. Right now I would be in my home away from home in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. I have been going there since I was 2 and now because of Covid I’m home quarantined here in NYC. I miss the beach!

  55. Dream trip: Amalfi coast of Italy 🙂 Our anniversary trip this year had to be put on hold, but I am sure when we finally get to go it will be amazing! #2021please

  56. I’d love to be on any beach right now. 2 of our vacations were cancelled and this teacher and mom of twins was SO hoping to get to the beach. 😂 I love looking at your beautiful pictures. We have planned again for Thanksgiving break so fingers crossed it will work out. ❤️🏖

  57. Hi,
    Love the Margot dress, too and always pic one up during the Lilly sale. If I were travelling right now I would be on the trip I was supposed to take my 75 year old mom and my 13 year old daughter on….to Paris. We were supposed to leave June 9th. Hopefully next summer and thanks for a fun giveaway! Kara

  58. If I could travel anywhere it would be to the moon. I’ve wanted to be an astronaut since I was a small child- and I’m assuming there’s no Covid on the moon, yet! If I had to choose somewhere on Earth, it would be Spain. My husband and I were supposed to travel there in April but cancelled our trip.

  59. Love your blog! Great shopping inspp!
    If I could be anywhere right now, I would be at the beach in Costa Rica. We were planning a trip with family and friends for my Daughter’s 6th grade graduation (not for another year), but we had to cancel. I haven’t broken the news yet 🙁

  60. I would love to spend a month at a beach – not picky, somewhere with white sound, blue water and great food!

  61. I would be in Hawaii! We were supposed to go with our kids this summer but Hawaii isn’t letting trans-pacific travelers in without a 14 day quarantine. Super disappointing!

  62. I really wish we could safely go to a city like New Orleans, the food and culture are just amazing and I want to be able to visit again!

  63. I’d actually love to take my family to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard. I can’t think of a more beautiful place to visit in the summer. Second choice, Grand Tetons in Wyoming! Love your blog.
