First of all, I want to thank y’all for the feedback on Sunday’s post. I’m so happy that the post encouraged people who were feeling frustrated. Fingers crossed this conversation picks up steam and Instagram realizes this algorithm change HAS to be tweaked.

But to switch gears, I am excited to share my last look from Charleston. Did you catch the whole travel guide here? I love how this maxi romper is a little cheeky, but has the lace to balance it out so it’s not too sexy. I paired the look with my FAVORITE necklace (it seriously matches everything). This Rebecca Minkoff crossbody that sold out during the Nordstrom Sale has been restocked and the colors and pattern are stunning… so perfect for fall. Side note – I just picked up these $30 booties that go perfectly with the bag! Can you tell I’m ready for Fall?

┬áNow, I am back to finishing up a few more blog posts. I am trying to get everything scheduled today because I’ll be at Bristol Motor Speedway Thursday through Friday. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve been at the race track, so I am excited to get back and see all of my girlfriends!

Instagram’s Algorithm & Questionable Social Media Practices

There have been so many people chatting recently about Instagram’s algorithm, loop giveaways, buying followers, etc. that I wanted to pop on here and lend my voice to the conversation, as well. I titled it purposely and use the term questionable because there is nothing unethical, illegal, or otherwise going on here – every blogger runs their business differently.

That being said, I wanted to add a quick disclaimer: these are solely my opinions. I’m writing this not to chastise anyone’s business practices, I’m writing this so that other bloggers don’t feel alone in their frustration. We’re all feeling it! I’m fortunate to have a close group of blogger friends that I can bounce ideas, thoughts, and stress off of, but many bloggers don’t have that community. Maybe they’re just starting out or live in a small town. Either way, I want you to know that the confusion and pressure you’re feeling is felt by us all.

Girls’ Weekend in Charleston

I recently returned from a trip to Charleston with my blogger besties Kelssey and Sara and I wanted to share all of the details from our trip. Charleston is my favorite city in the Southeast to visit, not only because of how drop-dead gorgeous it is, but because of how many things there are to see, do, and eat!

Charleston really is a city for everyone: the foodie, the romantic, the ghost-hunter, the thrill seeker, the party animal, the beach bum, or the history buff! You name it and you can create a weekend around it in Charleston. In the past I have shared my bachelorette weekend here and a romantic weekend with the hubs, but now I wanted to chat all about a girls’ roadtrip weekend.
