I love these summer essentials in volume 8. Mixing cool, crisp whites, woven accessories, distressed denim pieces, and elegant, museum-quality gold jewelry makes getting dressed and looking put together effortless. I’ve been reaching for white eyelet pieces and white sunglasses more frequently as the temperatures balance out. Pairing these with timeless gold pieces like these elevate the looks I create and garner plenty of compliments when I wear these too! What are your go-to summer staples? I hope you enjoy exploring mine!
I have always loved Greek mythology & stories. I used to stay up late at night as a child reading about Athena and her infinite wisdom, Aphrodite’s ability to inspire love wherever she went, and Artemis’s love for nature and all things innocent. One thing that has always stuck out to me is how timeless the outfits of Greek Goddesses are. Their flowing dresses, wild curls adorned with a glittering headpiece, helmet, or hairclip, and simple footwear are still just as beautiful today as they were when they were painted or carved into marble thousands of years ago. That’s why, when I found myself in need of inspiration for a look for our dinner at Zero George Restaurant + Bar in Charleston, South Carolina, recently, I turned to history to create this golden Greek Goddess-inspired look.
The Imaly City Lavender Festival was a beautiful celebration of all things lavender. We spent a delightful day amongst 23 acres of beautiful, purple French lavender and took home massive bouquets of fresh lavender to use in cooking, cosmetics, and around the home. We loved doing yoga amongst the lavender, enjoyed lavender-flavored foods and beverages, and learned how to cultivate, preserve, and enjoy lavender all year long. Read on to learn how to explore and enjoy this gorgeous annual festival.
