One. The Ultimate in Personalized All-in-One Organization

Sarah Barnard, the creator of Chart A Aa Carte sent me this video a few weeks ago of her big product debut and I was instantly intrigued… a do-it-all, one-stop board for storing your to-do lists, children’s artwork, calendar, etc = genius! I love that it’s completely customize-able, based on your unique preferences and needs, colorful and fun with magnets, markers, and accents that make it stand out… I can totally see my girls wanting to help create our family workstation with tasks that keep them earning their piggy bank money for toy store trips, too! 

Two. Transitioning to Fall with Jackets and Wraps

Nashville isn’t getting cooler just yet, but that doesn’t mean I’m not eyeing all the jackets, cardigans, wraps, and sweaters that I “need” for fall. Check out a few new favorites that are calling my name! 
Three. Soccer Star

Caroline is absolutely loving playing soccer this year… I was a bit nervous at first, as she does tend to be a bit timid when it comes to trying new things, but she has really come into her own on her team, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about Coach Jim. Jeff is mighty happy about his little soccer payer, and they are practicing all the time… such a sweet thing to see. As for Carson and me, well, we are really good about supplying the post-game snacks and drinks for everyone and yelling loudly for our big girl!! 

Four. The Battle at Bristol
So sad I’m not going to Bristol this weekend, but I am happy for our boys that get to go and make it a fun guys trip to see our guys in orange tackle the Virginia Tech Hokies… it’s going to be the largest audience for any college football game EVER and I’ve been watching the news all week as they prepare for this amazing event. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed the guys make it back home in one piece with a WIN, even if they come home in jorts and tank tops 😉

Five. Stella and Dot, The Fall Collection

A girl addicted to accessories… that’s me and I proclaim it proudly! For summer and fall, I’m trying to be more proactive about what I purchase, and making sure it’s great transitional pieces I can wear during multiple seasons and items that are classic, but still fun, and easy to accessorize. I’ve shopped with Stella and Dot for a few years, but I hadn’t visited their website recently, until stylist Emily sent me an email talking about a fun collaboration AND giveaway opportunity. Today, I am showing off a few of their latest and greatest, including this to-die-for Natalie Necklace and Rose Gold Renegade Cluster Bracelet.
First up, the necklace… it’s a two-in-one style with black leather detail, and a cobalt pop of color on one side and mixed metal on the other. It’s adjustable, so you can make it longer or shorter depending on your ensemble, and can be dressed up or down, from day to night. 

For my second bauble, I’m showing off this gorgeous, spiky Renegade Cluster Bracelet with pave diamond accents… it stretches to fit, so it’s super comfortable to wear, and pairs nicely with my other daily arm candy. Classic with a bit of edge = just my style!
