Jewelry that Goes with Everything!

Sheila Fajl and Kendra Scott

Hey y'all! Today I want to highlight three go-to pieces of jewelry in my collection that literally go with everything. First of all, here's a little background on the evolution of my jewelry preferences—in high school I barely wore any jewelry. (As mentioned in a previous post, I didn't even get my ears pierced until after college.) Then in college and the first couple years afterward, I basically stuck to pearls, first pearl necklaces and then pearl stud earrings once I finally got my ears pierced. Pearls were my signature accessory, and I think a lot of people knew me as "the girl who [Read more...]

If the (Lauren James) Dress Fits…

Lauren James Harper Dress

It has felt like winter all week here in central North Carolina, but spring is just around the corner! I absolutely love spring and the feeling of new beginnings in the air that it brings; not to mention my birthday, warmer weather, more daylight, Easter, and seersucker season! Seersucker is probably my favorite preppy Southern wardrobe staple, but I am a stickler and only wear it between Easter and Labor Day. I made an exception for this photo shoot with Amelia Cassar Photography, because I wanted to share one of my favorite spring looks with y'all and provide some styling inspiration, [Read more...]

Designer Deals of the Moment!

Tory Burch Wallet

Hey y'all! Hope everyone has had great Saturday. I wasn't planning to do a post today, but after finding out that two of my favorite designers are having big sales this weekend, I couldn't not share with y'all. Tory Burch and Kate Spade are my two favorite designers to shop. They are definitely investment pieces and great quality, but in my attempts to be a responsible adult, I shop them on sale as often as I can.

Let’s Get Real!

Eating Disorders Awareness

Hey y'all-- today I am tackling a topic that is much heavier than my previous posts, but is very near and dear to my heart: eating disorders awareness. When I first contemplated this blog, I honestly wasn't sure how vulnerable I wanted to get with respect to deeper heart issues. I had a blog several years back, and kept things very surface level on that. Last week, however, I listened to a podcast from one of my favorite bloggers, Stephanie May Wilson (she's amazing, seriously check her out!), and she encouraged a certain degree of vulnerability if you feel like what you have to share could [Read more...]

Orange is the New Pink

Orange is the New Pink

"Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed." -Elle Woods So Elle Woods from Legally Blonde may be one of my favorite fictional characters, but I must disagree with the sentiment she expressed above when describing how she talked Cameron Diaz or Beyonce (depending on if you're watching the movie or musical version) out of buying an orange sweater. Pink has always been my favorite color, but my closet contains just as much orange these days--largely due to me being a HUGE Clemson fan. (Go Tigers!) One of my favorite "go-to" pieces is an orange cotton slub Lilly Pulitzer [Read more...]

Mascot Monday

Sir Purr

Hope y'all had a great weekend! If you get today off, hope you're enjoying, and if you have to work today, hope the Monday blues don't have you down. As I mentioned in my intro post, I am shamelessly obsessed with getting photos with characters and mascots. So I will periodically be sharing some of these in a "Mascot Monday" column. (Can you tell I am a fan of alliteration)?! I will include my outfit details as a bonus in some of these posts. Today I am featuring my most recent mascot picture: Sir Purr of the Carolina Panthers!

Hey Y’all!

Welcome to Palmettos and Pineapples! I've been wanting to start a new blog for awhile, and I finally bit the bullet and did it! Several years back I dabbled in blogging, but once I started working full-time blogging fell to the wayside. Rather picking back up on my old blog after almost three years of inactivity, I decided to start fresh. Although my love of classic preppy style and all things Southern remains the same, I have grown, changed, and matured since my last blog, and wanted to have a new space with a more crisp and sophisticated look. So here we are! I am a complete amateur, and [Read more...]
