Charleston Pink Lady + Loving Lately

Today’s cocktail was sent to me by SSP reader Shirl’ Anderson.  I assumed she was from Charleston based on the cocktail name, but she’s actually from Virginia.  She’s just sweet enough to know that I recently moved to Charleston, and thought this cocktail would be perfect to share.  And it sounds so good!  Anything with grenadine is always a winner in my book!  Thanks, Shirl’!

This scent was in my latest Nordstrom catalog and I must order some soon.  It smells as pretty as it looks.
I’ve always been a fan of Gigi, so when I saw this cross body, I fell in love.  For me, crossbodies are the easiest thing to throw on when I’m heading out with the kids and don’t feel like carrying along my tote.  This one also looks to have more storage than your typical cross body.  The color is neutral and versatile, so it’ll go with most everything in your closet.  And it can be monogrammed!
Everything is amazing this season at Lilly.  Loving all of their newest arrivals, especially the pastel print on this Elsa and the blue of this beautiful maxi.
I know I’ve posted these studs before in an outfit, but I’m a sucker for a cute simple stud that I’ll wear often.  They have a subtle amount of sparkle which I like too.  Can’t go wrong with a little drusy.  She also has a lot of colors available, like these pink ones.
If I had an iPhone 6, I’d be all over this one.  I have a feeling my girls would enjoy it too!
I scored a pair of shorts similar to these during the Target for Lilly collaboration.  I’ve been searching for another pair because I love mine so much.  Can’t beat this print and style at only $17.99!
My closet is filled with stripes.  I love it as a fun neutral over solids any day of the week.  This particular one looks so pretty paired with this necklace.  All the reviews talk about how soft this top is.  Need to try it on sometime.
At only $34, this pretty maxi cover-up is a classic!
I’ve been wearing this lip color for the last week and I keep grabbing it again and again.  It’s the prettiest pop of pink.
This is the sweetest little romper and dress ever.  And the flamingo print is pretty fabulous too!  Mini Boden is such a great line, but every summer they know how to do it right.  Or maybe I just love summer clothes.  I want one of each for the kids!  Logan has these swim trunks and the girls have this cover-up.  All great, quality pieces that will last.
Victoria’s Secret has some pretty cute swimsuits this year.  I have a few from two years ago that I still enjoy wearing.  The quality is great for the price, and the selection is awesome.  Both of these above are less than $50.  You can also try their Mix and Match Bikini Finder and sample different styles and prints together.  Right now they’re also offering free shipping with orders over $50 with code: SHIP50FREE.
My Equipment Top is now 50% off and ships for free!  Perfect for the season, day or night.
Also, my Anthropologie Top I wore here is now back in stock in all sizes!  If interested, get it before it sells out again.  This one sold out pretty quickly last time.  For fit, it runs a little big.  Also, this gorgeous Sorbet Dress is perfection!!

Tory Burch marked down TONS of new items, especially in the shoes section!  Like these espadrille wedges were just marked down $140!

And my Pineapple Slides have now been marked down to $136, but they’re selling out pretty quickly. For sizing, go up a half size.

If you like the look and feel of a slide, without the quirky pineapple, there’s also this neutral option.  Also marked down to $136.

I have a pair of Revas similar to this print that have just been marked down, and they’re a great neutral when you don’t want to wear a solid flat.  And just the fact that it’s a Reva and it’s on sale?  Can’t beat that!

Just love the bright pop of green on these Mini Millers.  I’ll definitely be adding these to my wishlist.

Love these little Sand Dollar Earrings, now $55.  And my bracelet is on sale, as well.

Like I said, lots of new markdowns.  But shop quickly, as the good stuff sells out fast!

Happy Sipping, Y’all!
