Southern Style

A couple weeks ago, my beautiful cousin Paula married the man of her dreams Paul in Savannah, Georgia. As many of you know, I am obsessed with all things wedding related, so I had to make a post about it!

The ceremony took place at the fountain in Forsyth Park, across from the reception at The Mansion on Forsyth Park.


The fountain was the perfect backdrop to a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, and the ombre aisle, composed of 30,000 rose petals, was stunning.


To beat the heat, they put the wedding programs on fans. I used my Lilly Pulitzer wristlet, which I got as a free gift, and painted my nails with Essie’s Ballet Slippers.

Paula wore a beautiful sheer dress with an illusion neckline and carried a bouquet of white roses.


The ceremony was lovely and very touching, and Paula and Paul looked absolutely over the moon when they walked back down the aisle!


Here is my little sister and I after the ceremony!


I wore a Lilly Pulitzer shift dress, Ava & Aiden D’Orsay wedges from Gilt, and Kate Moss for Rimmel London lipstick in Kiss of Life (can’t resist a lipstick with my name on it!).

Their reception was very simple and elegant, from the place cards and menus to the floral arrangements. The food was delicious and a great time was had by all!


Congrats Mr & Mrs Hotchkiss! #PaulsGetHitched


Fall Fun: realizing I’ve been terrible at blogging

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a very long time since I posted anything here, and after recently receiving several compliments on my blog, followed by complaints that it hasn’t been updated, I’ve decided to make a huge post about recent autumnal excursions!

A couple weeks ago, the boyfriend and I went pumpkin (and fancy gourd) picking at Norz Hill Farm, which is right by my house! We had so much fun taking a hayride to see all of the farm’s animals and picking our own pumpkins straight from the vine!



We also did the corn maze, which was very complicated, but Jack proved himself a worthy navigator by getting us (and the dads with three small children) out!


I wore a salmon J. Crew sweater, Victoria’s Secret Leggings with a stripe on the side, Jack Rogers flats, and my Barbour jacket, which I got last January in Scotland!

We also picked up tons of fall goodies to enjoy: apple cider, pecan pie, preserves for my mom and grandma, and of course our tiny pumpkins and fancy gourds!


As if all that wasn’t enough for me, I also went pumpkin picking with my DZ sisters! We never actually pick any pumpkins; it’s just a really good excuse to take super cute pictures. My little and I were lucky enough to expand our family recently, so we took lots of pictures with our littlest, Marissa!

I’m wearing a navy plaid Ralph Lauren jacket, Rugby henley shirt, khaki American Eagle jeggings, and my old brown boots (don’t want to get anything nice dirty!) I added a pop of color with my hot pink Kate Spade cross body.

And here is one of my pledge sisters, KC!


Fall is one of my favorite times of the year!
