Hilton Head Island, SC


Here are a few highlights from our trip to Hilton Head Island, SC!  If you live in the south and haven't been, I highly recommend it.  It was very hot, (avoid going in August if you truly want to do any sight seeing) but we've gone in May in past years and it's perfect for beach going AND sightseeing! 

I was able to sneak away for a quick dinner in Savannah one night with an old friend.  Savannah is magical and so picturesque.  The spanish moss captivates me every time, along with the beautiful southern architecture and amazing food.  Good company doesn't hurt either!  Thank you all for following along with me here at Honestly West.  I hope you all have a lovely week!

My top 5 accessories for fall!


1.  Hands down, my favorite piece in my closet is my leather jacket.  It makes every outfit seem polished and slightly edgy to me, which I absolutely love!

2.  A great sneaker.  My favorite 2 are my classic black converse and my leather high tops

3.  The perfect black ankle boots.  I wear my studded Topshop boots ALL the time! 

4.  A basic stud earring, or simple ear climbers.  Something you can wear every day with any outfit!

5.  A matte lipstick in a pretty fall color like dark red, wine, or purple

This is me...


So this is me today.  Not fancy or dressed up.  Just outside playing with my kids, friends and neighbors.  I do love fashion and blogging, but I'm not always dressed up.  My body isn't exactly where I want it to be yet.  It's a work in progress.  I am a work in progress.  I am just a regular woman and mom who is trying to make her way in the fashion blogging world.  You know what though?  I've found that even on the days where I haven't washed my hair and I'm in workout shorts, I can still feel beautiful.  Little things help me to feel special and help me remember that I deserve to feel that way.  Today, that little thing was this pearl ear cuff.  I love it and yes, I will wear it with a tee and shorts.  I don't care if it "goes" with my outfit or not.  It is ME.  It represents so much more, and I think that's why I have come to love fashion more now than ever.  It reminds me that I am worth it.  It's an outlet for my creativity and my personality.  I hope that it inspires others to remember that they're worth it too!!  So grab that little extra today, even if you're feeling tired or run down.  It really will help you to feel better, and after all, you deserve it!!!
