Hey Ya'll! I know it's been awhile since I've posted, and I'm so sorry for that!!! My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Jekyll Island for my 25th Birthday! We've been doing the whole long distance thing since January, and I can honestly say that I'm not a fan! We go about 6-7 weeks without seeing each other! The surprise trip was from Thursday to Monday and we stayed in the cutest little cottage (Cherokee Cottage) at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel! I have pictures below of the cottage! Seriously, the cutest place ever!!! He honestly way out did himself! We tried to have a weekend "phone free", so I'm sorry about the few insta posts and blog posts! You can't get quality time back though, so I'm pleased with our decision on going cell-phone free for a few hours of the day!

What better way to travel than travel in Lilly Pulitzer?!!! This Lilly dress is so bright and fun, and screams "vacation I'm coming for you"! I paired it with my fave adidas sneaks! Gotta have comfort on your feet when walking through the airport right?! & these sneakers are super comfortable!!!! Ps. this luggage is AMAZING! I'm going to be saving up for the larger size because of how obsessed I am with it! Plus, the appearance of this luggage is so chic! I even heard a few comments in the airport about people loving my carry-on. That will sure brighten ones day!!! 

Our little Cottage for the weekend!!! The Cherokee Cottage :)
I never wanted to leave!!! Taylor had to drag my butt out of there, haha! 

Date Night
I wore this maxi on our first date night there!!! We went to the cutest little seafood joint on the water - Latitude 31. We listened to live music, ate delicious food and drank some tasty cocktails (well Taylor drank beer) haha! The sunset was out of this world gorgeous!!! You can see the gorgeous sunset pics below the outfit pics!!! Enjoy!

Didn't Taylor do a wonderful job with the photography?! I was so impressed!!! I'm super thankful for how supportive and amazing he has been about my passion for starting a blog! He's seriously been the BEST! Kudos to him on being so great!
This fabulous maxi is currently on sale and also comes in black!!! I'm seriously obsessed with the pattern, I mean isn't it just fabulous!!! My eyes lit up when I saw it at the beginning of the summer and knew it would be perfect for my Birthday Weekend! Never did I know, I would end up at the prettiest place ever for my 25th! Ps. Heels also on sale! I'm sure you've seen them in almost all my pics, and that's because they are so fabulous!!! They come in several colors as well! All linked below! :)

Today I am headed back to Raleigh because Nursing school starts back this Wednesday!!! Ahhh, pray for me! I graduate this December, and I'm currently freaking out! Ya'll will have to bare with me while I try to juggle nursing school, precepting, blogging, long-distance relationship, family, etc. This semester is definitely going to be a hard one, but with the Lord, my family, Taylor, and friends by my side I know I can get through anything that's ahead!!! Advise is always welcome!!!


  1. Oh my gosh! Tyler, you are such a babe! I love all of these pictures...the scenery, the outfits, everything! Looks like such a lovely time! ❤️
