Red, White, + Blue

shep shirt: Vineyard Vines // shorts: J. Crew // tee: Vineyard Vines // sandals: Jack Rogers via CCP // watch: Daniel Wellington "Bristol"

It's crazy to think that the 4th of July will be this Monday! Summer has just flown by. Ideally, any combination of red, white, and blue would be appropriate for this holiday, but I can't see anything being more fitting for this event than my American flag shep shirt. 

Lucy, Kirsten, and I had so much fun with this shoot, enjoy our looks for the 4th! If you share your outfit for the 4th on social media, tag me (@dariasmithyt) on social media. I wanted to get this look up before the 4th to give you some outfit inspiration in advance. Happy early 4th y'all!

I've been getting a lot of questions lately regarding my favorite bloggers (in no particular order), so here ya go..
I also made a video discussing my favorite YouTubers. Leave a comment with your favorite bloggers/YouTubers- I am always looking for cool, new people to follow.

oxford: Ralph Lauren // shorts: Vineyard Vines // belt: Vineyard Vines // sandals: Jack Rogers via CCP {email me for 20% at xcgal98@gmail.com off} // watch: Daniel Wellington "Bristol" // necklace: local boutique {similar}

For the next month, a lot of the posts you will be seeing were shot in Richmond, Virginia. I spent a week in RVA with some of my fellow blogger friends and we shot a ton of awesome posts that I can not wait to share with you all!! 

I own numerous colors in Ralph Lauren button-downs and chino shorts from either J. Crew or Vineyard Vines, and I 10/10 recommend that you stock up on these basics. These are both classic pieces- some of which I have had since middle school. I also love my platinum Jacks, these have been my ride-or-die shoe for the past few years. Honestly, you need a pair if you don't have them, and I have a code for 20% off at CCP. 

I wanted to keep the top and shorts simple since my belt has so much pattern. This belt is actually a few years old, but Vineyard Vines released one just like it this year. It's so fun and such a classic piece for VV. If you've been following the blog for a while, you'd know I wear my Daniel Wellington watch and cross necklace almost every day- they're great!!

Life Lately {6.9-6.18, 2016}

{6.9-6.13, 2016} I got back from the beach Wednesday night and went back to Alabama on Thursday morning. The weather was Ah-mazing, so we took Rebel's top off and it was great. There are few things I love more than topless Jeep adventures with my best friend. {view videos we filmed: Jeep Tour + Best Friend Tag}

How cute is the group of ducks living at the lake condos?!

If you've noticed a trend, sunsets are my favorite. 

{6.14.16} You'll be happy to know that I'm back at shooting outfits for the blog! // view this look here

{6.15.16} Wednesday was the pre-grand opening party for the Country Club Prep store right outside of Atlanta in Peachtree City and the store is adorable! It is most definitely worth a trip if you're in the area. Be sure to email me at xcgal98@gmail.com for 20% off their whole site.

{6.17.16} Meredith, Danielle, and I had a meetup in Atlanta at Lilly Pulitzer, and this was such an awesome experience! I am shocked by how many girls we had show up (we're thinking around 70-80) and so humbled that so many people came to meet us. Meredith and I had our first meetup two years ago and had roughly 20 people show up, so this was crazy! I'm so thankful we had the opportunity to work with Lilly Pulitzer and can not thank everyone enough whom made this event possible. I'll have some vlog footage from the meetup up in early July. Check out this video styling 3 of my favorite looks from Lilly if you missed it.

{6.18.16} MeredithKate, + I met up at Juliana's in Atlanta for national brunch day and enjoyed some awesome crepes. Juliana's is right by Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market, so you can really make a day out of it if you want!

I've been trying to start a Life Lately post on my blog and update it weekly {this hasn't worked out exactly, but I'm trying}. I was only home for a week in June, so life has been pretty hectic as you can imagine.

Life Lately Archives: 3.24.16 // 3.31.16 // 4.14.16 // 5.20.16 // 6.3.16 // 6.10.16 // 6.19.16

You guys are awesome and thanks for consistently keeping up with my content and all the support!

Edgartown Scene Print

top: Old Navy // lace bandeau: Fiore // shorts: Vineyard Vines // sandals: Jack Rogers via CCP // necklace: local boutique // watch: Daniel Wellington- "Bristol" // aviators: local boutique 

Sadly, these shorts are from last Summer, but Vineyard Vines or Lilly most likely has something similar available this season. This look is very simple and easy to recreate with printed shorts and a simple white blouse. 

Country Club Prep has a huge selection of Jack Rogers and Daniel Wellington watches right now and I can give you a 20% off code if you email me (xcgal98@gmail.com). Happy shopping!

Seaside + Destin Recap

I went to the beach for a few days with some friends and thought I would share a recap of the lovely scenery and possible dining options if you're ever in the area. We stayed in Destin and also spent some time in Seaside.

I'm normally not a fan of Florida, but I do love the beaches on 30A and Destin becuase the water is crystal blue with clear sands. Seaside is the cutest little beach town and you've got to stop by if you're near!

Sunsets and sunrises are one of my favorite things ever... and here's why: It blows my mind that God can create such beautiful scenery and reminds me what he is capable of. Consider this.. we get a sunrise and sunset twice a day.. I think this is God's way of reminding us when we wake up and before we go to sleep just how amazing he is. I absolutely love doing devotionals on the beach at sunrise.. it's just you, God,  and the sound of the waves with a beautiful view, it's one of those things you just have to experience for yourself; words can not describe. 

Coconut Shrimp // Pompano Joe's

Lobster Roll // The Shrimp Shack

Juice // Formula Fresh

Smoothie Bowl // Formula Fresh

I am an avid lover of seafood- one of the best things about the beach is fresh seafood. Oh my, I just love it so much. If you've been around long enough, you'd know I like to take photos of my food. ;)

There's a Bass Pro + palm trees, what's better? {at Destin Commons}

These photos were taken on the Seaside beach. // dress: SheIn c/o {only $22!}

I've had this red maxi for a little over a year now, and I'm still obsessed with it. I actually got it from a wholesale site on a whim and it has become one of my favorite dresses. If you're considering ordering this, note that I'm 5'2 and did get it hemmed. You can actually get this dress for $5 off + free shipping (making it only $17) with the code "Daria" at checkout via the Dote shopping app if you search "red maxi dress" after selecting the SheIn store. 

Have you ever traveled to Seaside or Destin? Leave a comment and let me know.
