links + loves – The Small Things Blog





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.
