TIPS OF THE DAY
We ended the week with only 5 of us under the roof as my parents left town on Thursday. We had a great time during their visit! We swam, went out for dinner, my sister and I had a double date with our husbands and we managed to treat Raleigh like we were tourists (as I mentioned last week)!
I always greatly overestimate how many activities and things we can do when they visit, but I felt like it ended up being a good mix of cold nights at home and activities outside .
I love the strap on this camera bag. The size of the bag looks perfect too!
This is a very similar bag to the Marc Jacobs bag that I bought at the anniversary sale at Nordstrom.
You can also find fun and colorful strap options to replace an otherwise simple leather shoulder bag here!
And here are a few things I mentioned on Instagram Stories recently that you might have missed:
White smocked dress with tie shoulders – perfect to wear on a hot August day.
Kendra Scott earrings – I love their color!
Madewell Curvy Perfect Vintage Jean
Guglhupf Cafe & Bakery – a German bakery with amazing food and pastries.
Fosters Market – Haven’t eaten here for a very long time, but I remember enjoying it the first time I went!
Gonza Tacos Y Tequila – Possibly my favorite Mexican place of all time!
Boxcar Arcade – A fun thing to do after dinner.
Ted Baker bag (similar to the Marc Jacobs bag sold out)
World Market Shelf – Just added this to Emily’s bedroom!
Winestore in Cameron Village – Loved being able to try a handful of wines at this store. I bought 2 bottles too!
Aesthetics by Sheila – She’s the best.
Old Navy Green Dress – My sister has the floral version and she is gorgeous!
Giordano’s Pizza – 4 pizzas arrived on Wednesday and I’m * so * happy!
LED Travel Mirror – A great travel find.
