Pink Seersucker.


Hello, seersucker season! I absolutely adore anything and everything seersucker so it's no surprise that I instantly fell in love with this pink seersucker number from Duffield Lane! This beauty has everything I could ever want in a dress- seersucker, lace and ruffles! Paired with a straw sun hat and some espadrille wedges, this look will take you anywhere from Sunday brunch to a day at the derby!

Preppy Easter Dresses.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! From the pretty pastel colors, to Easter brunch and lots of candy and flowers, it's easy to see why I love this day so much! I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite spring dresses that I've come across while shopping in case you needed a bit of inspo for what to wear on Easter Day! I am leaning towards wearing something seersucker myself, but honestly it's so hard to decide when there are so many cute options out there right now!

Tennis Attire.


I absolutely adore vintage fashion! I was scrolling through Pinterest a few weeks ago and came across some old black and white photos of girls playing tennis in the cutest outfits and I was completely inspired to create my own vintage-esque tennis outfit. It just so happened that that same week a company called Course & Club reached out to me and asked if they could send me one of their darling skorts... talk about perfect timing, right?! 

Course & Club skorts are not only adorable, they are seriously the comfiest thing ever! I love the flattering high waisted silhouette and the classic pleated and striped look. These skorts pair perfectly with so many tops from sweaters to polos and just about everything in between. For my vintage tennis inspired look I paired my skort with this short sleeve sweater that I was generously gifted from a local consignment boutique in Hershey called, JhettSet Closet. (If you're a local PA gal you have to check this place out- they have so many designer goodies for a steal!) To finish off my look I tied a navy cardigan around my shoulders, slipped on some ruffled socks and my sneakers and I fastened a string of pearls around my neck!

You can find all the links to my outfit at the bottom of this post!

Navy Necessities.


It's no secret that I am a tad obsessed with the color navy; just take a look at my Instagram and you'll find something navy in just about every post! The color is timeless and classic and works with every season of the year. It's easy to see why I am drawn to anything and everything navy!

For todays post I have rounded up a few of my favorite navy necessities that I came across while shopping online. A lot of these pieces have me thinking of spring! I am so ready for some warmer weather! 

Happy shopping!


Winter Picnic.


Joe and I woke up early last week and decided it was the perfect morning for a little winter picnic at the lake! We brewed some coffee, packed some snacks in our picnic basket, laced up our Bean Boots and headed off to Memorial Lake (see our last post at the lake here!) After picking the perfect spot out on the edge of the snow covered lake, we poured ourselves some hot coffee out of our plaid thermos and watched the ice fishermen at work. It was the perfect winter morning with my love.

Updated: How I Edit my Instagram Photos.


This has been one of my most requested blog posts for a while now! The last time I shared how I edit my Instagram photos was almost two years ago (see post here.) I still use a lot of the same editing methods that I did back in 2017, I just tweaked a few things to achieve more bold colors while still having that same bright and airy look that I've always loved. Down below you will find a step by step guide to how I edit my iPhone photos using the VSCO app and Instagram! I would love to see how your photos look using my editing so make sure to tag me on Instagram!

Before & After
VSCO

First I open the photo I want to post in the VSCO app. I have been using the C1 filter because I love how saturated the colors look once applied. Here is my "editing recipe" for VSCO:

1.) Use the C1 filter and set it to about +5.5
2.) Next up the contrast to about +0.8
3.) Up the exposure to at least +0.8 (sometimes I do more depending on how dark the photo is)
4.) Sharpen the photo to about +1.3
5.) Next up the temperature to +0.4
6.) Lastly turn the saturation up to +0.8
7.) Save the photo to camera roll

Instagram


After I edit the photo in VSCO I will tweak it a little on Instagram using the editing tools. Here I use the Gingham filter to soften the photo and I enhance the brightness even more. Down below you'll find my "editing recipe" for Instagram:

1.) Apply the Gingham filter to about 13
2.) Next up the contrast to +15
3.) Then up the brightness to about +10 (same thing as VSCO, sometimes I do more depending on the photo.)
4.) Using the color tool, add pink highlights to the photo at about +12
5.) Next adjust the highlights to +12 
6.) Then adjust the shadows to -20 (or less, again, it all depends on the photo)
7.) Next sharpen the photo to about +13
8.) Using the warmth tool adjust the photo to about -5
9.) Then up the saturation to +8 (or more)
10.) Next adjust the structure tool to +5
11.) Lastly adjust the lux to about -4

And voila! I hope you enjoyed this post, please don't hesitate to ask any questions! Here are a few last minutes tips to achieving a nice Instagram feed:

-take photos in natural sunlight
-try and edit all of your photos the same to achieve a cohesive theme
-change up your photo backgrounds and shoot locations for diversity
-be you! Don't try and copy anyones feed. Just have fun with it and use Instagram as your creative outlet!
