TGIF, friends! I wanted to check in from Daytona because one of my favorite retailers is having a major SALE – 40% off of EVERYTHING. Which is great news for y’all, because this adorable dress has been marked down to only $40. The ruffled sleeves and wrap detail were too cute to turn down! It runs a little large and I’m wearing a size XS. I am also excited to share this Clare V. petite Maison crossbody bag. I was so in love with my Alice Maison bag that Jeremy got me the crossbody version as well for Valentine’s Day! Both bags sell out every year so if you love them too, I would snag them quick.
Y’all may recognize this hotel from some of my older posts like this one. Tropical Manor is hands-down my FAVORITE hotel in Daytona Beach, if not all of Florida. It’s what pink, kitchy, retro dreams are made of and makes you feel like you’re stepping back in time. Unfortunately, they were sold out because of the Daytona 500, but luckily we were able to book it for the week of the Fourth of July! I hope y’all have a great weekend!
Happy Valentine’s Day, loves! I hope y’all are having a fabulous day full of love 🙂 Jeremy and I are in Daytona Beach for the NASCAR race so we’re having an nontraditional holiday (read chicken wings and happy hour Bud Lights), but I wanted to throw it back to Charleston and share a pink and red look that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day and even more perfect for Spring. Plus, it’s under $35!
One of my favorite things to do in Charleston, and the list is long, is to stroll from Waterfront Park, past Rainbow Row, and around The Battery and White Point Gardens. If you’re exploring the city for your first time, be sure to add this to the list. The architecture and views are stunning and you’ll spend your time oooing and ahhing.
Happy Tuesday! This post was scheduled to go up yesterday, but I got so caught up in running errands and prepping to be out of town the rest of the week, that it got pushed back to today. Jeremy and I are heading to Daytona Beach this afternoon and I am SO ready for the warm weather. What I can’t believe, however, is that the NASCAR season is already here! The off-season feels like it flew by.
If you’re new here, you may not know that I worked in NASCAR for six years before bringing my blog full time. I began as admin at an XFINITY Series team and then moved on to Travel Coordinator, Public Relations, and ultimately I was the Director of Marketing and Communications at my third team when I left my job last April. I developed this blog while working in the sport as a place I could share my love of fashion – something that doesn’t quite exist in auto racing. But as my years in the sport went on, my passion for blogging began to rival my passion for racing. Luckily, I didn’t have to choose! My husband is a driver and my besties do public relations, so NASCAR will always be a big part of my life 🙂
