July Favorites

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

How on Earth is it already August? July was a month of travel (Hilton Head for the fourth, Bald Head with the family I nanny for, and I've been in Upstate New York this week) so it flew by faster than usual it feels like!

Even though I had such a fun July, I can not help but be excited for August as I'll be enjoying my last few days of summer and then heading back to Clemson for sorority recruitment and the start of school. Even though I'm not looking forward to homework and spending free time in the library, I'm so excited to be back with my friends!

Each month here on the blog, I share my favorites from the month before! It is such a fun series as it gives y'all insight into what I have been loving during that month!

Tory Burch Sunglasses- While shopping in Hilton Head earlier this month, we popped into a sunglass shop where I fell in love with these sunglasses. I love how classic they are and how they go with any outfit!

David Yurman Cable Classics Bracelet- I've had my eye on this bracelet forever and have been putting away some of my nannying money away this summer to save up for it. I finally splurged and absolutely love it as even though it is a fancier piece, you can still wear it everything!

Lilly Pulitzer Beach Hat- Earlier this summer, my Lilly Pulitzer store had an event where they had one of the Lilly painters come to the store and paint custom beach hats and clutches! I could not say no to that and absolutely love how mine came out!

Amazon Echo Dot- My family has had an Amazon Echo for the past two years and we love love love it. My dad received an Echo Dot at some event and my brother was using it but decided to give it to me. I am planning on bringing it for my dorm but have been using it in my room at home and love it so far!

Kate Spade Phone Case- For the past year, I have been using the phone case that I got when I bought my phone but didn't 100% love. During Prime Day, I saw that they had a bunch of cute Kate Spade cases on sale so I decided to get a new one!

Water Pick- This is admittedly the most random pick ever but earlier this month, I randomly bought a water pick from Amazon and I love love love it! I have a permanent retainer behind both my top and bottom teeth from having braces in middle school so this makes sure everything gets clean since flossing is tricky with a retainer!

Sheila Fajl Hoops- I've had my eye on these hoops for a while as a lot of girls at Clemson have them and love them and after seeing them in Dorothy's "Amazon Favorites" post, I realized they were significantly cheaper on Amazon so I decided to splurge! They are super lightweight and jazz up any outfit!

What were your July Favorites? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Wow, you really travelled a lot in July! My fiance and I went to London for a week in June, but July was pretty chill. I'm happy it's August, too — I hope your sorority recruitment goes well!

    1. London sounds amazing- I would love to visit there! Thanks Sara!

  2. Love your Kate Spade phone case... I've been thinking it's time for an upgrade too! I love mine, but it's nice to mix it up and do something new! :)
