Grilled Caprese Salad: The Side You Need For Your Next BBQ

grilled caprese salad

Grilled caprese salad and tomatoes in the summertime. Is there anything better? Caprese salad is a year round favorite, but with fresh tomatoes and basil, it makes it even more difficult to pass on this time of the year. And as much as I love the traditional caprese, a few weekends ago I decided to try a different spin on the classic. Enter this grilled caprese salad. Read More

Cold Shoulder Top

casual summer outfit

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times: there is something about a cold shoulder top this spring and summer. I spotted this top before we went to California and was so excited to pair it with shorts and white jeans. Well, it was pretty warm while we were in the desert and I stuck to mostly dresses, but I had the opportunity to pair it with my favorite high-waisted jeans and white accessories a few weeks ago when we got back to Virginia.Read More

Happy Thursday, friends! The long holiday weekend is within reach now! I know it’s not even July yet, and you all are probably going to hate reading this, but I have already started to plan my fall wardrobe.

Red Hot July

Summer Red Outfit Inspiration @rachmccarthy7

Maybe it’s because the Fourth of July is next week, but I have been all about red lately. It’s a color that I like to wear, but don’t have a ton of it in my closet. Summer is the perfect time to break out this bright hue {or even add it to your closet!} especially with Fourth less than a week away!

And with the added flag design out of berries on the top, it will make for a delicious way to end your Fourth of July celebrations next week.

I Love My Dog Sweatshirt

Happy almost Friday, friends! Graphic shirts have been all the rage but I really haven’t jumped on this “trend train” until recently. My first real graphic tee was this blonde tee that I shared in this post a few months ago. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of plastering brand names and logos all over my clothing and accessories and I think that is probably why in the past I have shied away from this trend. But, when a saying has a special meaning to me or is completely and totally relatable, I wear it loud and proud! Needless to say this particular sweatshirt couldn’t be more perfect.
