Shirt (Similar)// Jeggings// Espadrilles//Glasses

For a while the pineapple was in demand. The watermelon and palm tree have also been popular. But the symbol of summer 2017 is definitely the cactus.They’ve been on everything from phone cases and scarves to shirts and skirts.I’ve rounded out some cactus-inspired clothing and accessories that are guaranteed to make a splash poolside or during an upcoming vacation in the mountains.


Currently Courting:Ear Cuffs

Ear Cuff

Ear cuffs have all but replaced traditional earrings these days—and for good reason. Ear cuffs are really cool. Whether it’s a cartilage hoop or a sleek climber, there’s something edgy and unique about the look. That said, not all of us are so eager to abandon our everyday studs and hoops for some giant thing taking over our ear. For the minimalists among us, simpler and daintier styles are a more inviting option. Here, I’ve rounded up the chicest ear cuffs that are delicate enough to wear casually, but still pretty edgy.


I have major shoes envy on people that can look so polished and formal while wearing sneakers. I throw them on to workout or with some time of spandex pants. I have a few pairs of casual sneakers but am trying to leave my comfort zone and wear them with black skinnies and a sweater. Now that the weather is getting colder, I need to ditch the sandals/flip flops and learn how to wear my sneakers as an everyday comfort shoe. Check out my favorites below…


currentlycourting-storypeopleI uncovered the art of Brian Andreas a little while ago when I was in Florida and was enamored with it. These are all from his Story People prints, aren’t they amazing? The meaning behind his pieces and messages are so beautiful and if you are like me and love reading quotes, then not only are his prints perfect for you but receiving the story of the day via email will be the topping on the cake.

I am usually not one that posts about art because I do not know that much about it but I am trying to get more into it.  My aunt has the best taste in art and I wish that I had her eye for it. She is actually the one that showed me some of Brian Andreas’ pieces. Above are some of my favorites but I have yet to find one that does not some how speak to me. And for those of you that are thinking this is a sponsored post….it isn’t.

1. Before Dawn– “I’ve always liked the time before dawn because there’s no one around to remind me who I’m supposed to be, so it’s easier to remember who I am.”

2. Bittersweet– “She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful & life was so short.”

3. Enough time– “Everything changed the day she figured out there was exactly enough time for the important things in her life.”

4. Kindred Spirits– “You’re the strangest person I ever met, she said & I said you too & we decided we’d know each other a long time.”
