WHAT I'M WEARING WEDNESDAY



Botox has been incredibly effective in terms of my migraines. Hallelujah! But there's another perk to the injections that didn't occur to me until after I got poked the very first time and that's HEADBANDS, y'all!!! I LOOOOOVE a good headband, but whenever I tried to wear them in the past for more than an hour, the sides of my head would start pounding. Now that I don't have to say no to this hair accessory and there are oodles of adorable options available, it's opened up a whole new world of accessorizing for yours truly—not to mention, an extra day or two without having to wash my mop. SCORE! Over the past few months, I've dabbled with several brands (J.Crew, Amazon, Madewell, Shopbop, H&M, etc.), but I keep coming back to Anthropologie. Most of their headbands cost less than twenty dollars and the fit is incredibly comfortable. They've got a variety of patterns from stripes, seersucker, and polka-dots, in a rainbow of colors, constructed from materials like linen, chiffon, and even raffia. Here are m' faves:

LIFE'S LITTLE DETAILS


"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES

Happy Tuesday, m' dears! Today's batch of photos is the most accurate way to sum up this Summer so far. When we're not shoveling handfuls of fresh blueberries in our mouth or double-fisting slushies, we're probably hosting in-laws, catching toads and snakes, refilling the inflatable pool with more water, building planes with Legos, taking snapshots of sunsets, or chasing fireflies at dusk. The past ten days have been eventful to say the least, as we hosted family from Missouri, and then we proceeded to send Flyboy off on his first mission post-deployment. We've got our fingers crossed that he'll make it home in time for the 4th of July when our second round of visitors (FB's dad and stepmom) arrive for their first trip to DE. I suppose it's time to wash the linens and make a few more lists. Giddy up!


Are you doing anything exciting this Summer? Any plans for the 4th?

LONGWOOD GARDENS


"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES

Happy Thursday, m' dears! We visited Longwood Gardens in PA this past Sunday, and it would be silly for me not to share a handful of gorgeous images I took from our trip with you. The botanical garden sits in the Brandywine Creek Valley and consists of over 1,077 acres of gardens, woodlands, and meadows in Kennett Square. The selection of garden displays is absolutely dazzling! There's everything from exotic plants indoors at the Conservatory to a variety of formal and naturalistic outdoor gardens as well. The Pierce-du Pont House, assortment of whimsical tree houses, and an extraordinary fountain show can't be missed! In fact, I'm eager to visit again because I'm certain we didn't cover all the grounds this time around and getting to experience the gardens as the seasons change sounds dreamy. Not to mention, I learned that there's this bloom called a Tassel-Flower and I need that plant in my life stat.


If you ever find yourself in the local area, I highly recommend a visit.
Beautiful details and pops of color are planted around every corner. You'll love it!
