My May Favorites – Here’s What I’ve Been Loving This Month

Goodness, this month has flown! Spring always feels like the quickest season as my wedding business is in full swing over at Mary Catherine Echols Photography. Almost every weekend I was out of town for work or trips, so I’ll be glad when we get over to Europe next month to relax and turn off for a bit. I hope you all have had the most fabulous Spring season!

From small businesses I’ve bought from, home decor finds, gift ideas & lots more- keep reading to see what I’ve been loving this month!

Rush House Rug

The most stunning and durable handmade rug that is a fabulous price and can be customized to any size. I was influenced by Molly Boyd, another Florida blogger, and I’m so happy I pulled the trigger on this for our living room. We are slowly pulling together this space, and I needed something neutral, coastal, easy to clean, and with a designer style. It’s not soft to the touch by any means because it’s made from water hyacinth, but it is still comfortable to walk on. I absolutely LOVE this rug! (Dog not included hehe)

Armani Code Cologne for John

A random buy that turned out to be one of my favorite purchases. This cologne goes a long way, so one or two spritz is plenty! It lasts all day and has a professional, masculine and fresh scent. If you’re looking to get something for your guy, try this cologne!

Bubble Bath Gel with Chrome

I was influenced by TikTok to try the chrome nail trend and thought it was a fun change to my usual. I did Bubble Bath as the base color instead of a neutral or white and really liked how it looked.

Target Burled Wood Console Table

The entryway table got an upgrade with this stunning Burled wood dupe table from Target! You can’t beat the price and ease of assembly. Use this for an entryway, hallway, bedroom, TV stand- whatever! The Burled wood fits so good in my coastal grandmilennial home decor.

Etsy Intaglios for an easy DIY wall art project

Take a look at my video on instagram to see how I did this. I thought this looked like an easy project to DIY instead of buying them already framed from Ballard, and I really wanted to pick my own Intaglios. The frames are from Michaels with a custom cut mat, then the Intaglios are Etsy and the background is thick watercolor paper for added texture. You can really do whatever paper and frames you prefer! I love projects that make your home look custom. Shop everything here!

Sofia Richie Style

I have a full blog post on this. I have been SO into her quiet luxury, linen beach wear, and coastal accessories. She’s the cutest!

Laser Hair Removal

Okay y’all. Where has this been all my life? I got laser hair removal from Modern Aesthetic Centers from Tanya in St. Johns (Jacksonville) and it was a breeze. Absolutely zero pain due to their new machine that is so cooling you can’t feel the laser. I have one more treatment of my three total sessions. Highly, highly recommend, and truly it’s a great price.

Lake Pajamas Terry dress

Y’all have probably seen this dress on my stories, I love it so much! Anything from the Atlantic Pacific line at Lake Pajamas is so adorable and colorful.

Tela Luxury Mercantile

I’ve had my eye on their yellow feather maxi and for months it’s been sold out. So I tried another coverup in yellow stripe and am in love. This brand is so precious and fun! I love how inclusive their caftans are, and how they are constantly dropping new styles. Shop their dresses here!

Hermes Slides dupe from Tuckernuck

Not only are they just as cute, they’re 100x more comfortable than the Hermes Oran sandal. Highly recommend these slides from Tuckernuck! Take your normal size.

Sunshine Tienda Dress

A breezy dress to throw on over a bathing suit or wear to dinner. I am clearly all about versatile fashion this summer! I love the print on this maxi. Go take a peek at more of their summer style at Sunshine Tienda! This brand is so bright and fun.

That’s all for my favorites from the month of May!
