Welcome to the Jungle

 new obsession- animal print
animal print, in the past, had never been at the top of my favs,
but it's quickly climbing the latter. 
oh yeah- i'm in desperate need of a little cheetah in my closet.
i love when it is paired in an unexpected combo as the grounding piece of the outfit!

loving the animal+neon mix

and the animal+floral mix

these are a few of my favs. they could seriously spice up any mix.

i think i'm channeling my wild side for the weekend 
 i'm thinking an afternoon trip to nordstroms semi anniversary sale is the perfect place to find my animal attire!

here is to a perfect friday-
happy weekend, y'all!

summer time and the living is easy- keeping to a schedule, not so much.

pineapple chunks: boating: trunk shows: nights with great friends

Emi-Jay's On The Way

i have recently been turned on to Emi-Jay hair ties and 
i am hooked. they are ah-mazing!
i have some thick hair and yall, they hold a high pony with ease, don't rip or crease your hair,
and double as an addition to your arm party when not needed in your hair!

best news of all, Emi-Jay's are coming to ADAIR
in just a few weeks they will be here. so, yall be on the look out!

the story behind Emi-Jay's is pretty awesome too! owners, both fifteen, started the company and have seen great success! did i mention they give 15% of sales to charity? check out the story, here.
i know, your loving them even more now, right?!?

Pretty, Pretty, Pinks

if you walk in my bedroom at my parents house, 
it might just take you back to middle school days!
it's pink. i mean really pink.
it takes PINK to a whole new level- i'm talking pepto pink, people.
anyways, my love for pink was drained through high school 
because of my overly pink room, but i am happy to say i've hit another pink streak!
pick a shade, any shade, and i'll take it!


more pink...

get her, here!

this tibi number is the love of my day life. 
can i have you, please?!?

...and the pink continues...

...And We Have A Graduate

Cook # 2 has officially made it. 
Rile is a graduate! 

I have to admit, I have a pretty top notch brother! We've grown oddly close over the past few years (maybe too close at times, haha), but he is still my little brother so, I am gonna be a little sappy- I'm really proud of the guy he is turned into. He is personable, outgoing, smart, and he knows how to have a good time like his big sis!

Actually, he is already celebrating by jumping out of planes!

I literally got this pic via text about fifteen minutes ago. My mom is still recovering from the slight heart attack she had when she was told Riley was sky diving- ALL IS CLEAR HE IS SAFE AND LANDED!

On to a happy weekend- hope you all have a great one!
Here are a few tunes that are setting the tone for my weekend.

Take Me Back

the "old days" have always been a source of inspiration for me.
i love vintage flair in about every aspect.
i'm loving both these photos-don't they just scream classic summer?!?

the good ol' days- must have been quite the time.

Sweet and Easy: Summertime

thank the lord, we have once again made it to sweet sweet summer
lightening bugs are out, sunburns are soaking in, and a day lounging by the pool is a day well spent. 
i had one of my first pool days of the summer this past weekend-in my book, that means it's officially summer time. i'm trying to make this best of this summer because it will be my last. next summer, i will be in the real world- ahhhhh.

one of my summer must-haves:
a few mix and match suits (bathing suits, that is). has been my few found treasure land this year. they have such a great selection and their suit sizes run separate for tops and bottoms-this is a must for my pear shape.

a few gems...



what are your favs from

Current Crush: LIFE

So, you may be tired of hearing it, but I just love summer months! 
Things are really picking up in the Adair world and I couldn't be more excited. It's nice actually having time to devote and seeing things head in a positive direction! 

I have been reviewing the images from the shoot on Saturday. Here is a new little gem for your eyes- what do y'all think?

Alex sporting our Call Me Queen Fuchsia Blouse, White Knight Skinnys, and assortment of bangles! 
There are so many things I love about this pic. The arm candy, Salud Beer Shop's lime trimmed window that's the perfect compliment to our look, Alex's mysterious facial expressions- heart, seriously, skips a beat.

Thought this was appropriate: it seems lately life is rewarding me for, well, loving life. Is it just me or does summer leave y'all in a "LIFE IS GOOD" state too?

Real Deal, Meet Steal

I am a sucker for a versatile pair of shoes  addition to my wardrobe. When shoe shopping lately, Dolce Vita seemed to be the stand out brand in the wedge world. 
These 3 neutrals were my top picks...

Decision time didn't come easy but, I went with the Julie Sandal in Cognac (top right). I thought they would be the most accepting of my wide feet and cankles :-). Not to mention, season-less thanks to the versatility of the leather! So, just like that my day was made: these beauties were headed my way!

Two days later my roomie came in with a target bag and whipped out these (bottom right)...

left, right
Yeah, I know. I was thinking the same thing- YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDING ME! There, right before my eyes, was one of my top three for $30 AND the faux leather looked amazing! The next day, I was scavenging around Forever 21 and what do I find? The little beauties on the left. So, I pulled the trigger snagged those, headed to target grabbed those, and sent the Julie's right back as soon as she arrived!

That is right, 2 pairs< 1 pair.
I'll take it!

On A Bright Note

It's been an unusually peppy Monday here.
Sun is shining, birds are chirping, and it is the first day of summer school for me ( as dreaded as this is, even it didn't bring me down)! I think my adrenaline is still churning from a beyond fab weekend!
High light of the weekend- ADAIR PHOTO SHOOT! 
All Friday was spent prepping and running around for the shoot and Saturday morning all of my visions came to life :-)!

Here are a few behind the scenes pics from the day...

Is Alex not the most gorgeous, striking, sky scraper legged, 17 year old (yes, you read it right, 17) you have ever seen!? 

These shots (if you can even call them that) are straight off of my handy dandy iphone- thank the lord for Instagram!  I can not wait to see the images captured by our photographer for the day, Lauren Harris!

Also, checkout these babes, Lindsey and Megan, repping Adair! (LOVE GETTING THESE PHOTOS! SEND THEM TO

Clearly they love Instagram too!

Hello, Summer

Sorry, I  have been MIA for a few. I couldn't quite get a summer schedule down pat.
But, don't you fret- I think I've figured it out.

Sadly, my frist week of summer has not been filled with days spent pool side, warm sunshine, and magazines like I had imagined. Its been pretty gloomy here in NC, but I have been able to catch up on my lack of sleep from finals and get organized.
 Now, I'm looking ahead to a bright and busy summer!

Cheers to the start of summer!

Polished Motivation

hello. hello.
its been a crazy week. crazy i tell you. 
my brain has officially decided it needs a little "me time"- considering the amount of studying i've been doing, i'm going to deem that a-okay.

first thing i am going to do after my last test thursday morning is hit the nail salon.
[a little post test treat and prep for a weekend in charleston]
it's good motivation.

 in between flash cards my mind has been drifting to polish colors- yes, there are hundreds of more important things i could be thinking about. but, the polish color to choose tomorrow morning is currently taking the cake.
 here's to getting this pesky distraction of out my system.

like this one.

and this one.
mint candy apple
and kinda loving this one. yum.

what do you guys think? camera craze or mint madness? neon or pastel?
its deff between the two.

now that the polish party is over, its back to the books.

sorry for the lack in adair updates this week- like i said, i'm on a wild ride.
however, there will be tons of new and exciting stuff going next week, so
hang on for a few.

Pedal To The Metal

 (if you are in the Charlotte area and would like to host one, email us at

it's gonna be a pedal to the metal we for me. 
2 test, a cooler to paint, babysitting, and ADAIR.

hope yall are having a great hump day! this dreary weather we are having in NC has had me lagging today. so, what to do? pinterest. pinterest. pinterest.

the fist thing i will take on after finals (only 3 weeks away-time to cram) is the Adair room. this room is currently the most chaotic, head ache causing, clutter you have ever scene. the lack of structure, combined with my scattered brain is not good. not good at all.
 i'm so happy i will finally be able to make the space adairable (adairable- anything Adair that is adorable. my friend, brooke, came up with this cutie word & i love it). 

of course, pinterest did not let me down when it came to inspiration. 

i love the simplicity of this space + the tons of storage

more organization. love this pot of pink.

deff want to bring in color with IKAT

i can't wait to really get started with this and see how it turns out.

HAPPY DAY GIVEAWAY has been extended! winner will be chosen tomorrow at noon. don't miss out on your choice of a bauble + a gift card!
