Tay and Co: August 2018

American Coastal Apparel

I can't believe this weekend is already Labor Day weekend! As this summer comes to an end it makes me crave the sunshine even more. A couple weekends ago, I went to the lake by my parents house to style these preppy looks from American Coastal Apparel. I am a preppy girl at heart so I love a good navy and pink pairing!

American Coastal Apparel was created by college students who started this company in high school. Being married to someone who also followed their dreams by starting a small business, I always love supporting them! The best part about their company is they donate a portion of their sales to the Surfrider Foundation. The Surfrider Foundation is an organization that works to protect the oceans and beaches by cleaning up the shorelines. So it's definitely a win win to shop with them!

Here I've styled three different products of theirs: Original Sailboat Long Sleeve TeeOriginal Sailboat Crewneck, and a Nautical Logo Tee. Of course I had to pair them with some classic boat shoes, a windbreaker and jean shorts.

We're off to Florida tomorrow so I hope you guys have a fun labor day weekend!
Be sure to check out American Coastal Apparel on Instagram to see all their latest arrivals! 

Thank you American Coastal Apparel for the opportunity to collaborate! 

The House of Gentry

Can you guys believe that it's already August?! I mean seriously how is the summer going by this quickly? This past weekend I visited my little brother in DC, and I hadn't been there since my 8th grade trip. It was definitely so cool to revisit monuments and spend time with the fam. I am traveling a ton this month. I'm off to Ohio this weekend for a wedding! Taylor Swift comes to the burgh on Tuesday, and then next weekend I'm going to Waco with my Mom and sister to see Chip and Joanna's Magnolia Market. At the end of the month we're off to Florida for labor day weekend! Lots of trips means lots of packing and I love having a couple of staple items to take with me place to place. 

I am a huge supporter of small businesses so I love sharing these boutiques on Tay & Co. The House of Gentry is an online bohemian clothing and accessories boutique. Tamie has so many unique items that are perfect for all your vacations the rest of the summer! 

I styled a navy open back maxi dress and a mermaid graphic tee. Both perfect to pack for all my upcoming trips! The navy maxi dress will definitely be coming with me to the beach on labor day weekend! It's super flowy and has a halter top tie which is really flattering. It also features an open back detail that shows off that tan! I love how easy it is to throw on after a beach day, but still look put together for a nice dinner. You can get 15% off this dress with the code: TAYLOR15. 

Graphic tees make up a large portion of my summertime wardrobe. I love grabbing a few new ones each season to pair with jeans or denim shorts! This mermaid graphic tee has the prettiest metallic lettering detail that reminds me of mermaid scales. Here I styled it with boyfriend jeans and slip ons which would be the perfect airport or road trip look. The best part is it's under $31 with my code: TAYLOR15. To finish off each outfit I wore these champagne tear drop earrings which also come in peach! 

They just added tons of new arrivals to the site and be sure to follow The House of Gentry on Instagram to see when fall items start rolling in! 

I hope you guys have a great rest of the week!
