Cape Cod (Kwassa Kwassa)

Even before KJP + Sarah made Cape Cod cool, I've been in love.

You're just a ferry ride away from Martha's Vineyard + Nantucket. 
What could be better?

I visited this gorgeous peninsula about a year and a half ago and I already can't wait to get back. The place is surrounded with history. Walking the streets all I could think about was... JFK and Jackie walked these same roads and possibly ate at this same restaurant. How much greater can it get? It's just such an awesome experience, you guys. If you've never been, book your flight NOW! Be spontaneous!

No, but really you have to see it. 

Check out a few of my snapshots from the trip below.

My Biggest Fan

Today's post is all about the one and only
--
Momma Byers

When we lived in Nashville, my mom taught Spanish at the same middle school I attended. That meant that when middle school spanish rolled around, I had my mom as both a teacher and a mom. At first, I didn't know how I would handle it. As it turned out, it was a pretty funny experience. 

I absolutely refused to call my mom "Mrs. Byers". I mean, for heavens sake, I was Miss Byers. How confusing is that? LOL. All of my other classmates soon caught on to calling my mom "Mom" in class. She tried to fight it at first but eventually, she was my classmate's "Mom" as well. 

While all of that is fun and games, it was neat to share my mom with my classmates. She's an awesome lady, you guys. She's a kind, strong-willed, Godly woman. For those of you who have not had the opportunity to meet her, you're missing out! She's always been my biggest fan in absolutely everything that I aspire to be. That's probably my favorite characteristic of hers. I also don't hate that as an only child, I don't have to share the attention! ;-) Hehe. I'm kidding. I would have loved to have a sibling but it's a pretty great perk to get all of momma's love to myself :-)

This past Saturday, mom and I had a fun little photo shoot in Paducah to celebrate her birthday.

Take Me To The Beach

I hope everyone has had a great, productive week this week!
I am SO excited that the weekend has arrived though! This weekend is an exciting one as I'm going home to spend the weekend with my parents and celebrating my sweet momma's birthday! Another year older to celebrate! :-) What do you all have going on this weekend? Hopefully something fun! YOU deserve it!!

I have been craving a nice dose of the beach here lately. I'm talking, send pictures every day to both Mom and Dad. It's always been such a happy place for my soul. Do any of you all feel that too? My parents always took me to the beach as a girl and ever since, it's such a place of serenity for me. Both sides of my family appreciate the beautiful scenery so it's something fun for us all to enjoy! 

This year at the Lilly Pulitzer sale, I snagged this fun little sweater (seen below...). It's such a perfect sweater for the fall season and also perfect for a beach bum who is craving a little dose of the salt water.

Fall Foliage

Kentucky Bluegrass

All of the fall leaves have changed and all the fall wardrobes are out. I love it! Time to snuggle up with your loved one and enjoy the cozy season. 

One of my favorite parts of changing into a fall wardrobe is pairing riding boots and sweaters with colorful skirts. Just because summer is over doesn't mean you have to put your colors away, ladies! 



Check out a few snap shots of what I styled this past weekend.

Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix


#ChicAndShimmerCooks

While my passion is styling and all things involving clothes, my list of interests doesn't end there! I love to delve into cooking and baking every now and then. This was actually a quick little recipe and it's lasted me for days! 

Check out a few pictures below!

Shop Bop SALE!

What does a girl love more than a new pair of sunglasses?

A good (no, GREAT!) sale!

How often are you able to get any form of sale on brands like Karen Walker, DVF, Tory Burch or Kate Spade? I'll go ahead and answer for you -- never! So why would you pass up the opportunity now? I know the holidays seem so far away from right now but seriously... 2 months from now we'll be gorging ourselves on Nana's stuffing, Aunt Cindy's sweet potato casserole or Mom's pumpkin pie. Time to stock up on holiday treats for loved ones or treat yourself on a statement piece you've had your eye on! 

Check out my top picks from this amazing ShopBop sale!



ShopBop is offering 25% off of EVERYTHING! Just enter the code "FAMILY25" at checkout!

Boots + Seersucker

Summer isn't REALLY over, is it?

This past week I noticed myself wearing not-so-appropriate shoes/pants attire to work and out through town. I mean, don't get me wrong. I adore the fall season with every fiber of my being. But it doesn't mean we have to put away our gorgeous summer sandals and skirts, does it? Well, my little freezing feet and legs might beg to differ! 

Time to break out the boots and tights, girls! But before we do... One last glimpse at seersucker is okay, right? (It is in my book!!)

Paisley Crazy

Fall is in full SWING

I hope everyone has been able to get out there and enjoy all this gorgeous fall weather we've been having lately! It's been such a treat here in Lexington. I'm holding on to every 60-70 degree day that I can before the winter rolls into town...

Speaking of all things fall...
