I have been on a all white/cream kick lately. It may be because I am trying to soak up every last day of summer and summer trends. I can't believe August is almost over. Yesterday, my mind was thinking it was still May (seriously). I think half the reason my summer feels so short because I was pregnant for the majority and couldn't wear half of the stuff I wanted to. So I apologize if I stretch my summer wardrobe a little longer, when Fall sets in. 
Onto the outfit...I have had this cream blazer for years! It's such a classic piece and a wardrobe staple!  It paired perfectly this darling skirt from Grace Cooper--who has some darling items, including this  lovely romper.  Which reminds me, I still have a couple I need to wear before the summer is over! Summer where did you go!?

As always, thanks for reading!

Finally sharing the details of Sutton's nursery. I had planned on sharing sooner, but I accidentally deleted all the photos. This nursery took me, literally up until the weekend she came to decorate and get ready. I am so indecisive and finishing all the little small things was the hardest part. I still need to do add photos into frames and add more of them. I plan on adding some from her newborn shoot and the maternity shoot we did. 
To start the decorating, I started by looking for bedding. Restoration Hardware and Baby have the prettiest nursery and bedding sets, so I started looking there. Of course I found so many options, but the second I saw the Washed Appliqu├ęd Fleur collection, I knew I had to have it. Next, was then having to choose a bedding color, which was quite hard. I was leaning toward white, but then when we purchased the oatmeal colored crib set, I wanted to do a color, either pink or purple. I have always loved the color purple, ever since I was a little girl, so I went with that. Next, we had the walls painted a bright white with just a hint of purple (the pictures don't really show that). 
The rest kind of all feel together, after lots of shopping trips to and from. I think the hardest part was finding little knick knacks and decor to sprinkle throughout. I still am looking for a couple pieces. One of my favorite items in the nursery is the horse picture above the chair. It was a sweatshirt that my grandma, Marcella Jane, cross-stitched for me as a little girl. My mom had it framed years ago and I knew I wanted to tie the in somehow. 
Her nursery is by far the favorite room in our home now! Which is a good thing, since we spend so much time in there!

BEAUTY TALK: 5 Foods That Keep Your Skin Hydrated

Who doesn't want healthy and hydrated skin? I feel women (especially) are forever in search for the best fix to give them glowing, clear, healthy, wrinkle-free skin, I know I am! I was inspired to share this topic today because lately I had been getting asked how to get a healthy skin glow.  I wanted to share one easy and inexpensive way to do so. Did you know that some foods that help keep your skin nourished and hydrated? These are foods that I eat on a regular basis and they not only promote good health on the inside, but also on the outside (your skin). 

1) Oatmeal- It's a water-rich food to help your skin stay moist. It's a great source of manganese, which helps create protein (collagen and elastin, which are structural proteins for your skin) and it helps protect skin cells from damage caused by a build up of free radicals.
2) Tuna: The omega-3 fatty acids in tuna and other oily fish help promote moist skin and protects the skin. Tuna and salmon are also a source of the B vitamin-biotin, which is essential in the winter since not getting enough can contribute to scaly skin.
3) Spinach: In addition to being packed with Vitamin A-a known skin strengthener, spinach is filled with folate that helps hydrate skin.
4) Avocado-contain vitamins C, E as well as moisture locking monounsaturated fats
5) Oranges-Loaded with water content and the talon makes them a great hydrator for skin. They also have a ton of vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin that works as an antioxidant to protect all body cells-including skin cells-from free radical damage. Vit C also created collage- the bodes main structural protein that holds skin, ones, and other tissues together.
