I can tell we are getting closer to summer down here because the days are becoming longer and there’s more sunshine to go around.
It was such a beautiful night out on Davis Island when Alexis and I went to shoot this look – one that was I had been so excited to finally photograph. The air was breezy and the sun was beginning to set!
However, this green smoothie is quite fitting before a morning work out or just to start your day otherwise with protein. My good friend, Tessa, helped me with this one as she’s a fitness and nutrition guru extraordinaire. I find that it keeps me full before and after a workout and works for an afternoon snack too as I know I have trouble getting in enough protein into my diet each day.
First, I hope this outfit inspires you for all things Spring. I’ve linked some similar items below that you can mix and match but off-the-shoulder tops, midi skirts and wedges are quickly becoming my go-to’s on these gorgeous April days.
First up, a little Instagram roundup from my birthday weekend. Many of you asked for the links to this peplum top & shorts via Snapchat (follow along: bannc) and Instagram. I emailed those who sent me their addresses but wanted to be sure everyone got the links on here too. I love that you can buy them separately! I plan to wear this top with white pants and these shorts with tanks all spring and summer long here.
This two-piece is what I wore to my birthday brunch at the lovely at Élevage at the lovely Epicurean Hotel this past Saturday.
If you ever find yourself at Élevage, I prefer the “Classic” brunch (with cheese grits & scrambled eggs, also with cheese) and for $15 you can add on bottomless mimosas, bellinis and bloody’s to your entree (brunch is served until 3pm).
I must also give a shoutout to Tyler, who waited on our large table of girls and was absolutely wonderful! Bless him!
It’s only fitting that today’s post is appropriate for Toasting – Happy Birthday to me!
I am truly looking forward to my last year as a twenty-something. Yes, that means I’m 29 today and if you saw my Snapchat (bannc) last night, please don’t call me a “millennial”, I was still born in the 80s, people!
On another note, I absolutely love this little flare shift tweed dress – it’s comfortable, breezy for warm weather and I feel like a flapper every single time I wear it. This quilted bag also comes with a long strap and is adjustable.
