this week's clicks [treat love like you're jumping off a rope swing]

get your week off to a colorful start...
How are y'all doing? I'm still recovering from camp and took it slow all weekend (highlight: a trip to the Roanoke Valley's newest brewery). This week's clicks include flowers for days, dresses for all of your summer occasions, and the history of a Southern classic. Coming to the blog later this week, I've got a great new Pinspiration post and reviews of some recent entertainment faves. As always, shoot me an e-mail about what's new and awesome in your life - I'd love to chat!

  • Summer is always when I listen to country music the most, and I'm currently in love with the new track from local boys Old Dominion (two of the band's members are from Roanoke). Also, a country music video with video game references and bloopers? What a time to be alive.


"I had the voices of the women I grew up with. It takes your breath away how quick they are. It’s the kind of humor that would sear through treacle."

this week's clicks [love is enough when you don't look back]

get your week off to a colorful start...
Happy almost-summer, darlings! Can't you feel it in the air? I've got some great stuff for you this week, so grab your coffee cup and get clicking! I'm spending the work week at my favorite place on Earth - my childhood summer camp - so be sure to follow along on Instagram!

  • The Barr Brothers were a Spotify discovery for me; I love live videos like this one where you can see how much creativity goes into actually creating music (rewind if you want to hear the entire intro).

paper chase: tropical wedding and party invitations

After yesterday's post, I couldn't get enough tropical inspiration. Here's a round-up from around the web of some beautiful tropical-inspired invitations that would be great for a destination wedding, summer bridal shower, or milestone birthday party.

Tropical Hawaiian Invitation by Sincerely May via Not on the High Street

Obviously I'm loving the pink hibiscus flowers on this invitation by Sincerely May.

Tropical Wedding Invitation by Fluid Ink Letterpress on Etsy  |  Paper Chase Press via Happy Wedd

I love the letterpress details in the Etsy invitation on the left. The collection on the right was designed for a bride who designs beachwear for a living - how perfect is that?

Maya Invitations by Rachel Marvin Creative

Palm Wedding Invitations by Kaydi Bishop for Minted

Tropical Wedding Invitations by FloptyDooDesigns on Etsy

Tropical Garden Party Invitations by The Distillery via Oh So Beautiful Paper

Which of these tropical invitations is your favorite?

pinspiration: let's get away...

The combination of blush pink and palm prints was one of my favorite trends last summer and I'm happy to report that it's back for round 2! Maybe it's all those childhood trips to Myrtle Beach, but I will never tire of kitschy, candy-colored beach d├ęcor.

Are you planning any summer getaways?
