I have had several busy weeks in a row! There have been some pretty big things that have happened; I am excited to be sharing on the blog more of what I have been wearing on my instagram- @CarolinaBstyle. Leave me a comment on what you have been up to, I would love to know!
This romper from Nordstrom is just about the most comfortable thing I own! It is perfect for outdoor picnics or activities in the heat. I wore this when Pat and I met my family in Orlando- we went to Harry Potter world at Universal Studios! It was WAY COOL and SO MUCH FUN! I mean, who doesn’t love HP? This is my childhood we are talking about…!

I wore this beautiful coral cut out dress to Pat’s sister’s wedding a few weeks back. It is from ASOS and I paired it with my favorite aqua beaded earrings for a pop of color! I really love how romantic this dress is and how it flows behind as you walk. I wore a comfortable pair of gold heels so I could dance all night! My shoes are old but I found a few similar here and here. This dress was perfect for the wedding, I really wish there were more occasions I could wear it to! I have gathered a few similar dresses in the links below, as well as some of the best jewelry you can wear with the dress you choose!
What else could possibly scream summer other than Lilly Pulitzer?! I admit, I wear Lilly all year around because I love all things colorful and bright! I know some of the dresses up front seems to be quite an expense, but I believe the cost is money well spent. I get excited every season to pull out my bight prints and try new ways of wearing them! This dress above I bought last year, and wore it out to meet some girlfriends for dinner! It is my favorite Lilly silhouette- a perfect fit and flare, making it ideal for the heat! Find this summer’s print update to this silhouette here. I am just dying over the pink combo since pink is my absolute favorite color! All other details from this photo is below!
So big news here-cue the drum roll please! Over the Fourth of July, Pat and I had a road trip to Pittsburgh to get our baby girl, Ruby! My brother was so kind to drive four and a half hours to a little farm town named Wauseon, Ohio to pick up our ten week old toy goldendoodle, and then drive four and a half hours back to my parent’s house. Pat and I drove from Charlotte to my parent’s to meet our little girl and spend the long weekend there! She is by far the cutest little thing I have ever seen. OBSESSED is an understatement. See below my July Fourth inspired instagrams and of course a few of our baby girl!
Thought I would share a few photos of Ruby’s first weekend in Charlotte. She was so social being out and about!
One more thing, I can’t wait to share this Kelly green dress from The Mint Julep Boutique! I’ll be sharing the dress later this week- stay tuned!
