currently coveting.

One might think that based on the black & gold selections for this currently coveting post I am secretly counting down to the start of football (who dat) season. At least I know it will be the first thought that pops into my hubby's mind. As much as I hate to disappoint, that is not quite the case.  However, I do enjoy what the start of football season also means...the start of fall. Is anyone else as excited for fall to arrive as much as I am?

Now on to these beauties pictured above. I've been searching for the perfect set of stacked rings for a while now, but haven't found any I had to have until I came across these these Jane Pope Jewelry TWIG rings. Aren't they lovely? A delicate addition to your jewelry collection. || The Southerner's Cookbook by the Editors of Garden & Gun will be released in October...and in case you don't want to forget to make the purchase you can pre-order the book now on Amazon. done. || This CLU Tulle-paneled top & these Chloe flats are the epitome of chic classics. I dream of a quiet date night, drinks at Panama 66 with our little mister & closest friends or hosting a grand ole' party at our house this fall in these beauties. || My entry way re-decorating project is well on it's way to being complete. This brass pineapple dish is the final touch I've been looking for to hold our keys. || After reading this Vanity Fair article about Bunny Mellon's garden I'm inspired to add a few topiaries to our house. This topiary from Jayson Home is the perfect start. This olive topiary from Williams Sonoma is another great option.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

mignonne gavigan.

I've been eyeing Mignonne Gavigan's work for a while now. With collections full of chic, make you look twice statement pieces it's hard to pick a favorite. Meant for day or night, jeans or a dress these scarf necklaces will not disappoint.

I couldn't help but notice that one of the Fall / Winter 2015 styles is the "MEG". A sign that it is meant to be? I think so.

good night.

Our little mister Jack loves to read. When we flew to Florida in July I took a small bag of toys on the plane, but to my surprise he was content with reading the same three books over & over again with breaks of peek-a-boo with our neighbors in between.

When you ask him to pick out a book to read his face lights up and there isn't any hesitation as he hurries along to grab his favorite book to proudly bring back to you. And don't think that you will just read the book once. He first likes to flip through the pages as fast as he can, read it backwards, and then will sit quietly as we read it from beginning to end. When we are done he quickly flips the book back to the beginning to start all over again.

His favorites? These three Good Night books by Adam Gamble. I originally bought the Good Night California book a few years ago as a birthday gift and they soon became my go-to baby shower or birthday gift for little ones. The best part is the great assortment of states, cities, and so much more this collection comes in. We love saying good-night to our family all over the country with these books.

I think it might be time to add a few more to our collection.

work it.

For those of you joining me in the 30 day exercise challenge, we are more than half way there. Way to go!! So far it has been a fun challenge and I've enjoyed doing different types of exercise - family jogs, power walks with friends, yoga and workouts from my boot camp days. There have been good days where I couldn't wait to get my exercise in and days where I tried to wish the 30 minutes away. 

I've been so inspired by everyone who is doing this with me. Seeing your workouts (#30dayswithSS), hearing how motivated you are and how great you feel has really helped me move forward with this goal. We've pushed through our first two weeks, which are the hardest and now our bodies are getting used to the daily exercise, feeling more toned & motivated and perhaps well on our way to making this a habit rather than something we dread.

A lot of what can make your exercise great is what you are wearing. New shoes that make you run or walk faster, that perfect fitting top, or the most comfortable shorts. Here are a few of my favorite workout items & a few that are on my wish list.

My favorites...
Runners...I can't recommend these shorts enough. I always preferred leggings until I found these. Comfortable & light - my favorite pair of shorts. 

My wish list....

serena & lily fall fashion + summer sale.

I've been an admirer of Serena & Lily for a while now. Their home decor is equally as elegant as it is functional, from the nursery to the kitchen & every room in between. It's no surprise that their clothing collection is just as beautiful.

They released the new Fall 2015 fashion collection today and I am coveting every piece more than the next. How can I not? Looks that are simple & classic and will be in style for the years to come. These truly are fall staples in my book and have made me eager for cooler days, sweaters and darker tones.

And lucky us, because there are still pieces from their summer collection on sale. Make sure to snag them while you can and end the season in style!
