OK, it isn’t exactly fall here in Charlotte, NC yet, but that didn’t stop me from pulling some of my favorite transitional fashion staples to create today’s outfit of the day.

DIY Farmhouse Wall Shelf

I am thankful for a mama and daddy who taught me how to use power tools, sand and stain a piece of wood, hammer a nail, patch a hole, and paint a wall.

I feel like them teaching me these things from a young age helped foster my independence, as well as my do-it-myself attitude, and it allowed me to develop a love for creating things with my own hands. It’s just a really good, proud feeling when you can point to something and say, “I made that.”

Lunch Breaks /// Old Navy Try-On

Thank you to all those who tuned in for the first episode of “Lunch Breaks with Hali” on Instagram Stories last week.

It was a lot of fun to grab a bunch of clothes and head to the dressing room for a try-on session at Old Navy.

Everything from my try-on is linked below. I know a lot of you already purchased the chambray shirt dress and twill field jacket because you loved them as much as I do!

Macrame Plant Hangers

A couple weeks ago I shared on Instagram my favorite cozy corner in my home — in my master bathroom, to be specific  — and so many of you loved the macrame plant hangers I have above my bathtub.

I continue to receive direct messages asking me where I purchased those little darlings, but unfortunately they are no longer in stock at Target.

However, I was able to find some comparable ones on Amazon for you — some of them at a better price than what I paid for mine! Continue reading “Macrame Plant Hangers”

How I Keep Our Floors Clean with 3 Pets

How I Keep Our Floors Clean with 3 Pets

When we bought our house in May, updating the floors immediately rose to the top of my home renovation to-do list. It’s somewhere between overhauling our backyard and gutting our master bathroom.

But thanks to our AC going out this July, replacing our current tile and laminate has fallen down the timeline and likely won’t be completed until spring.

That’s the joy of homeownership, right? It’s always something.

Fun & Feminine Loft Summer Fashion Haul

Fun & Feminine Loft Summer Fashion Haul

Buttons and lace and ruffles — oh my!

If you follow me on Instagram then you probably saw that on Saturday I posted a photo of myself wearing a darling little white tank with the most perfect lace detail, and I promised a Loft summer fashion haul on the blog.

Well, here it is friends. I did a little damage online at Loft last week and treated myself to some new clothes since they had an additional 60-percent off sale items.

It’s mostly pretty tops that I can pair with denim shorts (a closet staple) for a clean and classic look, but everything is fun and ultra feminine.

Recipe /// Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Recipe /// Easy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The fact that I don’t cook has become somewhat of a joke in our family.

It is no exaggeration, though. My husband prepares 95 percent of our meals (including my lunch every day), and I’m not the least bit embarrassed to admit it. It’s not that I can’t cook; I simply prefer not to.

In fact, we moved into our new home two months ago and today was my first time using the stove. I couldn’t even figure out how to turn it on without cussing. But, I had a hankering for chocolate chip banana bread, so I was determined to make it work.

I love banana bread — it’s one of the few things I actually enjoy baking — and it’s incredibly easy to make.

Amazon Roundup /// 6 Things You Need If You Are TTC

Disclosure: Contains affiliate links. 

A few months ago I shared that my husband and I have been trying to conceive since December and so far haven’t had any success.

The last several months have been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and stress for both of us, but despite all of the negatives, it’s still an exciting time in our life together as we wait for a miracle (if you have ever been TTC, you know that a baby is, in fact, a miracle).

With that being said, here are the six things I keep stocked in my bathroom while we are trying for a baby. The best part is, they’re all available on Amazon Prime so I never have to physcially shop for them in the store. Whenever I’m running low on something, I simply submit my Amazon order and it arrives in two days!
