Popping in with a mid-week links + loves because it’s been too long!

Isn’t that entryway so charming? I found this article for 10 ways to use shiplap and each one is so unique!

My lime obsession is still going strong from last year and this chicken looks so perfect for a hot, summer day.

Last year, I decided rash guards are going to be an essential part of my pool activities in the summer. I found a navy blue striped one at Lands’ End a few weeks ago but finally broke it in last weekend. It runs large, in my opinion. I bought a medium but I wish I would have bought a small.

I’ve been traveling a bit more than usual and of all the things that I could possibly forget to pack, forgetting this would be the greatest loss.

I may whip this up this weekend.

A great tutorial for pretty wedding day makeup.

A perfect upgrade for a LBD. And I usually avoid prints but this dress is darling.

Have you recreated these mermaid waves yet?

If the humidity is killing you already, try this spray to help lock in your hairstyle!

I’m heading out on a quick work-related trip to NYC today! Follow along with what I’m doing over on Instagram!

    I love the Lands End rash guards too! They’re seriously the best! They do run a little big but they have great customer service and I’m 100% sure they’d exchange your medium for a small!

    Kate, I got the cutest rash guard at Costco in Apex last week. So random but $13, so there’s that.

    LOVED the make up tutorial! It was way more than I would think to wear but looked amazing. I was just married last month and my hair/make-up didn’t turn out how I hoped. Wish I’d seen this a few weeks earlier. Oh well… I am still married to the man of my dreams!

    I love flatbread pizzas. Aldi’s just opened up about 15 minutes from me. What temp did you use to roast the garlic?

    Aldi is absolutely my favorite place to shop! I am able to give my kids mostly organic and whole foods because of their amazing selection and reasonable prices. (My kids and I loooove the Gluten Free Soft Baked Chocolate cookies. They prefer those over regular cookies!) I sound like an Aldi commercial because I believe in their brand that much!
