Happy Friday! What are your plans for this weekend? We have an oh-so-fab wedding tomorrow that I couldn't be more excited about! 
Yesterday I got an email from  fellow blogger of I Love You Crazy that just moved to Wilmington. She is a total doll and is actually having an awesome giveaway today. Check out her blog here and maybe one of you will win! Here are the goods:

Recently I have become OBSESSED with red, from accessories to lipstick. This would be a great addition for Fall! 

I'm off to a busy weekend! I hope your weekend is great!

Maternity Photos

Last week, our good friend Millie Holloman came over to our house to take maternity photos of me and Grayson. I didn't want the kind of maternity photos that were "show your bare belly and naked body wrapped in a sheet" kind of way, but a "this is a happy time in our lives and the last photos we have as just a little family of two." Millie, Grayson, and I always have so much fun together and this was no exception. 

You can check out more of Millie's work here. She is an amazing photographer and a great friend!

Pretty pictures for this rainy Tuesday

Baby Shower

This past weekend, my sweet friends hosted a baby shower in honor of Tilley-Gray! It was a perfect Saturday morning brunch with great food, mimosas (not for me of course!), and perfect company. I have the sweetest friends and feel so blessed!

 My sweet friends, Sarah, Kelly, Liz, Cathy, Karson, Heather, me, Carson, Lindsey, and Sarah on the back porch overlooking the waterway. (a few are missing from this photo!)

  Tilley-Gray was spoiled rotten on Saturday with toys, swings, a pack and play, and lots of clothes, onesies, bloomers, and shoes!

 The brunch spread; talk about making a pregnant girl happy! 

My favorite French macaroons and mini cupcakes!

My mom and me at the end of the shower!

With 8 weeks left to go, we are gearing up for the home stretch. Two more weddings and a few last minute touches on the nursery. I'm sure it will be here in no time!

Dress your whole family in Zara

When the husband and I were in NYC and Paris, we both blacked out when we went into Zara. (OK, I blacked out, he kept me from cleaning out our checking account on jackets and made me put some things back, but still, he participated.)  I'm not sure if it was the booming music, the bright lights, or the affordable fashion, but the few times I have been in Zara, I get in a zone that surprises even me. Now that it's online, I don't have the same adrenaline as when I have been in the store, but they sure do have some goods this season that I could use in my closet. 
Their men's and little boy's selections actually rival there women's and girl's clothing. Typically girls clothes are so much cuter than the boys, but if I was having a little boy, the toggle coat and driving shoes would be on order. So cute!

I love the cut of this jacket!

Everyone needs a leather jacket. This style and price point is perfect!

For the man in your life, this quilted jacket would be so cute with a fitted t-shirt and jeans.

I love this for cozy, casual weekends. 

For the little man in your life, this toggle coat is a must. What a great first classic!

Little driving loafers! 

 A toggle coat for the little lady

Every girl needs a little leopard. These are perfect for fall!

It's feel more and more like Fall here and I couldn't be happier! I have my first cold of the season, so I have been on chicken noodle soup and hot tea all weekend and I almost don't mind! 
Happy Sunday!
