As I recapped in one of my prior posts, I hosted a ‘Vacation Chic with La Vie Petite’ styling event at the Fab’rik City Walk boutique. During the event, I wore this Fab’rik paisley romper. After leaving the store that day, I ended up purchasing a lot of summer staples, including these Jack by BB Dakota crochet shorts. Both the romper and the shorts are currently on sale for $40 each! I’m wearing a size small in both for sizing reference. One of the selling points of Fab’rik is that everything in the store is on trend, but also under $100 (except for jeans). So, Fab’rik is much more affordable compared to other boutiques.

I feel like I’m a constant nomad, but in a good way. After I got back from Fort Laurderale with my Mom and sisters I flew to DC for a girls weekend. My best friend Jess was having a big blow out bash for her 30th birthday. She actually just moved to Chicago, but wanted to have her birthday in DC since most of our friends and her family are on the East coast. Jess was one of my bridesmaids and is one of my best friends so I couldn’t miss birthday her celebration.
My Mom turned 60 in June, so my two younger sisters and I wanted to plan something big for her. Over the July 4 holiday weekend, we treated my Mom to a girls weekend to Fort Lauderdale. My Mom’s one request was to be able to relax at the beach and spend time together, so Fort Lauderdale was a great spot to do that. It’s more low key than Miami, but there is still a lot going on, especially during the holiday weekend.
On Saturday June 24, Jeremy and I celebrated my dear friend Melissa’s wedding in Virginia (see recap of Melissa’s bachelorette party). Melissa is such a beautiful person inside and out. We’ve been friends for over 10 years. I’m really thankful for Melissa’s friendship after all this time. So, Jeremy and I were pleased we could celebrate with Melissa and her (now) husband Brennan, on their wedding day.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of partnering with the boutique Fab’rik. Fab’rik’s mission is that everyone can feel beautiful without breaking the bank. Everything in the store is under $100, with the exception of jeans, as the company believes that every woman should invest in a quality pair of jeans. I really identify with the brand because it is affordable, but doesn’t sacrifice quality.
Over Memorial Day weekend I flew out to the west coast to visit one of my best friends, Katie, in San Francisco. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. If it wasn’t so expensive, I would love to live there with my husband. On Sunday Katie and I ventured out to wine country. Napa was having its annual ‘BottleRock‘ music festival, so we went wine tasting in Sonoma instead of dealing with the craziness in Napa.
As I recapped in my prior post, South Moon Under, one of my favorite Virginia boutiques, just opened two new stores in Atlanta. One store is in Ponce City Market and the other store is in Alpharetta at Avalon. From now through May 29, you can get 15% off $150+ in stores and online with promo code “SUMMER15.” Valid through May 29.
I got a new beautiful rose gold watch from Welly Merck, a Switzerland based watch company. Welly Merck designs Swiss watches for both men and women at an affordable price. The ‘Classic New York R‘ (36MM) watch I got only costs $265, but looks like it could be worth $500 or more. Welly Merck gave me a code to share with my readers. Use code ‘LaurenNicole20‘ to get an additional 20% off your purchase. I know I just missed Mother’s Day, but Father’s Day is coming up. Watches are always a great gift for any occasion.
Last weekend I traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia to celebrate my friend Melissa’s bachelorette party. I’ve known Melissa forever and she’s one of the sweetest people I know. We went to high school and to college together. Then after college we lived together in Arlington, Virginia. I wanted to wear this new white eyelet dress wine tasting, but I ended up wearing jeans and layering because it was so cold. But despite the weather, we still had a fabulous weekend.
My two younger sisters came to visit me this past weekend! It was the first time they had visited me since I moved to Atlanta. I’m the oldest. Alissa, my middle sister lives in NYC and Caylen, my youngest sister lives in Arlington, VA near our parents and the rest of our extended family. We’ve always been close since we were babies. It’s hard living far away from them now, but I cherish the moments we are together!
South Moon Under was one of my favorite places to shop at when I lived in Virginia. So, when I moved to Atlanta, I still purchased items online, but missed being able to shop in an actual store. But now South Moon Under finally just opened two new stores in Atlanta! One is in Ponce City Market and the other is at Avalon in Alpharetta. To celebrate the openings in Atlanta, South Moon Under has given me a promo code to share with you: “PEACH,” valid through May 10th, online only for 15% off full price items and free shipping, no min order amount, exclusions apply.
While I was vacationing in Miami, I used my new Bersuse towel (see part 1 and part 2 recap of my Miami trip). Bersuse towels are high quality Turkish towels, but for an affordable price. The towels are hand-loomed in Turkey, and are %100 Turkish Cotton. I’m obsessed with my orange and purple Bersuse towel. The towel is extremely soft and the colors are bright and beautiful.
Check out my Miami Getaway // Part 1 post, for the first part of my Miami girls trip. My closest girlfriends and I all live in different cities so we try to plan weekends to visit one another. Tricia lives in Los Angeles, Jess lives in D.C., Laken lives in Baltimore, and Carly one of Tricia’s friends from Los Angeles came as well. So we had a fun girls weekend in South Beach Miami with 5 girls.
