Our Bright and Airy Kitchen

We wrapped the week up with just the 5 of us under the roof as my parents left town on Thursday. We had a great time during their visit! We swam, we went out to dinner, my sister and I got to double date with our husbands, and we were pretty successful at treating Raleigh like we were tourists (like I mentioned we would do last week)!

I always wildly overestimate the amount of activities and things we can do when they visit, but I felt like it ended up being a good mix of chill nights at home, and activities outdoors.

Love the strap on this camera bag. The size of the bag looks perfect too!

This is a very similar bag to the Marc Jacobs one I bought during the anniversary sale at Nordstrom.

You can also find some fun, colorful strap options to swap out of an otherwise simple leather crossbody bag here!


And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you may have missed: 

White smocked tie-shoulder dress – perfect to wear on a hot August day.

Kendra Scott earrings – I love how colorful these are!

Madewell Curvy Perfect Vintage Jeans

Guglhupf Cafe & Bakery – a German bakery with amazing food and pastries.

Fosters Market – I haven’t eaten here in a really long time, but I remember liking it when I first went!

Gonza Tacos Y Tequila – May be my all-time favorite mexican place!

Boxcar Arcade – A fun thing to do after dinner out.

Ted Baker Bag (similar to sold-out Marc Jacobs bag)

World Market shelf – I just added this to Emily’s room!

Winestore in Cameron Village – I loved being able to try a handful of wines at this store. I bought 2 bottles too!

Esthetics by Sheila – She’s the best.

Green Old Navy dress – My sister has the floral version and it’s beautiful!

Giordano’s Pizza – 4 pizzas arrived on Wednesday and I am *so* happy about that!

LED travel mirror – A really great travel find.
