abby-lately february

I’m not sure how today is the last day of February, but it is! I realized it’s been awhile since my last abby-lately post so today I’m sharing some pictures and highlights from the month. Next week I’m going to be going away on vacation with my family which I’m so excited about so it may be a little dead on here, but make sure to follow along on Instagram (and my budget buys) and I’ll be posting about the trip when i get back! Hope you’ve been well!

Favorite button-down as of late (currently on sale but alternative here)

I teamed up with a few of my favorite ladies including Katie Dean for a fun Galantine’s lunch. See the full recap on Glitter Guide.

A little bedroom refresh happened this past month with a blown up picture from our wedding over our bed (as well as printed version of our vows), bedside tables c/o, lamps c/o and new throw pillow covers from Etsy (here, here).

Nellie and some Valentine’s roses from Chris.

An overcast weekend beach day.

A much needed ladies lunch with Adeniz and Christine at Zinc in Laguna Beach.

My latest favorites from a project (all c/o): Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna, Nars Lip Gloss Tasmania, M-61 Hydroboost Line Reducer, Diptyque Vanilla, Jason Wu x Caudalie

Celebrating Chris’ 31st birthday at the Bruins/Ducks game thanks to both our parents! It was SO much fun! Even though we lost, it was a really great game!

My new favorite sunglasses – obsessed! Coffee table books: here, here.

abby-lately: holidays 2016 & welcoming in 2017

Happy 2017!

I’m coming out of a super busy and eventful stretch so I thought I’d finally check in here. Between the usual Christmas and New Years activities, Chris and I had visits from his side of the family, his sister’s wedding and a visit from my parents. Christmas was great, the wedding (despite the pesky weather) was absolutely beautiful and showing everyone our home/life in Laguna was so much fun – but I have to admit, I’m a little exhausted – I am 30 after all. I’ve been having a good time today looking through some photos from the past few weeks so I thought I’d share a few!

Hope your year is off to a great start!

I bet $20 that Chris wouldn’t go surfing on Christmas day. I lost, but it was worth it!

My “Christmas Wish” from last year that my parents texted me. My wish came true!

The most gorgeous post-rain post-ceremony sunset & sparkler send off!

Back in Laguna Beach to show my parents around. Lots of walking was done and drinks consumed!
