Ultimate Summer Gift

Summer birthdays, wedding parties, and graduations parties are on the top of my list this summer. The only downside to all of these awesome parties are gifts. Now let me be the first to say I love buying gifts and giving them! Gifts can be expensive. Especially when you have an event every weekend.

I always make a weekly or biweekly round to Marshalls or Homegoods. You can always find something or anything there. Sometimes it can get overwhelming. I swear that I have went shopping and don't get a basket so I can limit myself and end up walking back to the front with an arms full!

This weekend I have my cousin's 21st birthday and another cousin's graduation party! Two in one weekend! I found the perfect gift that can be used all summer and even next for less than $35 at one store! That's right I said $35!

A very in style gold striped flamingo beach bag to store all the goodies and doubles as gift bag- $8
Oversized beach/ pool towel to lay in style- $12
Bathing suit or bag to keep bathing suit from getting bag wet or keep phone and wallet dry- $5
Perfect palm print notebook to write down summer goals- $4
Facial sunscreen. This is my favorite brand! - $5
Lotion because the pool or beach can get drying and if you always want to smell great - $1.5


 You can throw in a fun bottle of champagne or white wine, with a cute bottle topper! Enjoy and have a wonderful summer :)



I loved making this goody bag and almost needed to make my own! Have a fun and safe summer and do not forget to wear sunscreen!

Lets Flamingle

Flamingos. Do I need to say more? Who knew a long pink bird with a long black beak would be this summers rage? While running errands around Rockport today, I usually make rounds to come places that I stop by once a month. There was tons of cute flamingo decor. From garden decor, wind chimes, outdoor tray, to wine glasses. The one flamingo trend I couldn't pass up without buy was this Maxwell and Molly shirt.

You can't go wrong with this vibrant hot pink shirt and a little cutout just to put it above a regular tee. This shirt is a perfect brunch tee shirt to throw on with some cutoffs, right earrings, and some sunglasses to hide last nights makeup :) Less that $25 for a comfortable and perfect quality tshirt is something you can't pass up! Luckily these earrings were also from M&M. Such a huge trend and I am still debating in getting them in different colors.  Yall these shorts... I splurged, but it was for my birthday and once I tried them on I knew I needed them! I had to get them in another color! The cut off length is perfect and sit just on the hips. I love to shop small and bought these at my favorite boutique in Rockport, Bay Window or HERE online.  They are so comfortable and I am ready to wear these with a tank and bathing suit!

April Showers


I have always hated the saying "April showers bring May flowers." I was scared the saying would jinx the rain and would rain on my birthday, but this year I planted my first mini garden and bought actual plants. Plants that need water, sun, and love! 3 days later it rained all night! When I woke up we only had one injury, but those white baby flowers are doing better! When you live on the coast we all know what comes after rain... Mosquitoes and humidity. I have heard people complain so many times about humidity, but I honestly have never noticed. I just know when it gets hot it is hot and wet! So light clothes make a ton of difference. So do cut outs...

This dress from Maxwell & Molly is my weekend favorite and Easter outfit. Mint is definitely on Patone's Summer color pallet and who doesn't love tye-die?? Keeping cool means cutouts! My favorite part of this dress is the back. It is sexy, light, and appealing. This dress is all about comfort and quality. What makes this dress even better? Tassel earrings. If you've seen the Kendra Scott summer line. Tassel earrings are on top of the list. These beaded earrings are the yellow earrings are what I have been needing to really start my summer wardrobe.
