Currently Coveting: June

I have so many exciting plans for June! Since Summer is in full swing (and Lo's birthday is toward the end of the month), I can already tell that our little family is going to be getting into quite a few adventures. I would love to get outside and play a bit more, make a few changes in our space and dress the part for Summer.

"Stella" by Mosi Bicycles - I've been wanting a (cute) bike for the longest time. We have an amazing trail right next to our apartment and it would be so fun to get out with Lo and Mr. Jackson on the weekends and enjoy the fresh air. This sweet ride just needs a basket for stashing picnic goods and farmer's market finds.

J.Crew Downing Tote - I'm expanding Chelsea & The City and taking on a few editorial styling jobs this month. With all the running around (sourcing clothes, picking up flowers from the market, lugging supplies to shoots), I think it's finally time to invest in a great tote. While I love Cuyana's option and the classic Downing tote is gorgeous, the fun metallic really makes a statement!

Serena & Lily Painting - I've yet to hang any art in our place (it definitely doesn't feel homey yet) and I'm thinking neutral but graphic gallery walls are the way to go. This earthy piece is just the thing to ground a few family photos and fun prints, don't you think?

"The Jumpsuit" - This denim jumpsuit is perfect for all sorts of Summer happenings. I can definitely see this piece at the market, at the park or even dressed up for a more fashion-forward occasion.

Ikea STOCKHOLM - Even though this piece of furniture is marketed as a TV unit, I can totally see it as a sideboard in our dining room or as a catch-all in our front hall. We're definitely still missing a few key pieces in our apartment and I'm really excited to dedicate some time to finishing things up this Summer.

What are you coveting right now?

These are the days, aren't they? Lately it seems like I've been on a roll when it comes to being positive. We've been feeling more at home in our new town, settling into a comfortable (but fun) routine, meeting wonderful new friends (isn't Ginny from Sleepy Fox talented? I hope you're enjoying the new photo format as much as I am!) and just livin' life here in Huntsville. With all of the traveling of last month behind us I'm finding it totally necessary to recharge and be kind to myself.

p.s. Isn't this shirt the best? My mom and I both have it but I've got this one and this one on my wishlist.

4 Essentials for Memorial Day

It's been quite a while since I took part in Ashlyn + Kristin's four favorites link-up (I know, I'm a baaaad blogger) but I'm finally revisiting my favorite blog feature. Since this weekend is Memorial Day weekend (hello start to pool season, I've been waiting on you), it's high time to bring out the bathing suit I've been hiding away and a few more warm weather essentials. Mr. Jackson's birthday is on Monday so hopefully we'll spend the extra day celebrating and hanging in the sun.

Nine Space for J.Crew Beach Towel - I'm usually not one to tote a cute towel to the pool but it's definitely time to invest in something a little more chic than the bright beach towels we've had for years. Bonus: the classic stripes will never go out of style and this one's big enough to double as a beach blanket.

Saturday Fringe Sandals - I've seen these sandals everywhere lately and finally it hit me... they're adorable! I love the fun fringe detail and the soft brown shade is perfect for the transition from Spring to Summer.

J.Crew Cutout Suit - I picked up this suit while Lo and I were in DC and I'm so excited to finally bring it out and take a dip in the pool! The fit is super flattering and the interesting side cutouts keep the one-piece (a first for me) from looking matronly.

J.Crew Panama Hat - My panama hat is basically my best friend. I've been wearing it (and carrying it around... it's the best accessory) since picking it up in March. Since the sun is shining blazing now, I have a feeling I won't be leaving the house without it anytime soon.
