Hi ladies! How is your week going? I am still on cloud 9 after a very successful first meeting of The Fromagaholics! My friend Erica and I both love entertaining so we did what any cheese lover would do and started a wine and cheese club! I have a few quick snaps on my Instagram Story but I’m going to try to take blog photos next time to share the spread with y’all. The highlight was the brie and honeycomb—and the party favors. I may or may not be enjoying the mini wine bottle as we speak—and no I’m not using a glass lol! Hair of the dog, right?

Now onto today’s outfit—I’ve been on the hunt for a fabulous tweed jacket for years. I really don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say years. I wanted something classic like the tweed jackets my mom owns, but mine needed to have a modern, updated, FUN look. I was excited when Charlotte London reached out to me about their debut collection. And then I was really excited when I opened the marble box with gold lettering– like I almost dug out my tap shoes from my 4th grade memory box and broke out into a happy dance, I was that excited. I instantly obsessed over the soft pastel pink jacket with fun neon stitching. Gotta love that extra pop, you know? I’m calling it the ultimate summer jacket. I know this is weird but I feel like I’ve already worn it and loved it for years.

I took my new jacket for a fancy spin to lunch at Ivy at the Shore with ripped jeans and then later over a sundress for a dressier mother daughter event. If you already have enough pink in your life (could such a thing even be possible?!), I also love this baby blue jacket. Perfection. Charlotte London aims to bring a little fun, beauty and glamour into everyday life, and I’m definitely onboard with that philosophy, aren’t you?

Have a great rest of your week! How are you celebrating life this week?
