One of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow is that of the lovely and ever so elegant Julia Engel. When she launched her very own brand, I was ecstatic. I've always loved and admired her fashion sense and the dresses she wore, so naturally I've loved every beautiful piece she's released in her line. I've put together 11 of my favorite dresses and one jumpsuit she's released that are perfect for fall and put together some of our Hampton Ivy pieces that would look beautiful paired with them too in the post. I hope you friends enjoy!

It's almost that wonderful time of year, where every tree blooms with colorful leaves, the air becomes crisp and cool, and there's a faint warm smell of pumpkin and apple and cinnamon everywhere you go. Needless to say, I'm excited! I love every season, but fall is always a special treat. It's not quite cool enough to bring out my fall clothes, but it's the perfect time to transition my jewelry, accessories, and home decor from summer to fall! Hampton Ivy just launched our fall line and it's my favorite yet. Every design is classic and sophisticated and will compliment your wardrobe or home beautifully, and you'll definite get compliments whenever you wear any of our fall releases! Take a look through this post to see some of my favorite pieces from our fall line and head on over to www.hamptonivy.com or www.hamptonivydesigns.etsy.com to see everything. 

Summertime and the livings' easy ♪ ... Summer may be close to an end, but it's not done just yet! This summer has been a very busy one behind the scenes for Hampton Ivy.

Keep reading to see some of my favorite launches I've worn this summer. 

We're only 10 days into the new year, but it feels like it's been a month already.. is that just me or do you friends feel the same? My mind has been racing and spinning in circles trying to create a plan for this year and I think the largeness of my goals is weighing me down a bit. Most likely because my main goal for 2019 is to make a six figure income and moving out of my parents home and into a home of my own, not exactly a small feat- of course 100% possible, but still pretty terrifying. BUT, I'm trying my best to not get caught up in the size of my goals and instead just take things step by step until I reach them. I not only want 2019 to be a successful year for my work, but for my mind and body as well. So, I've created a list of resolutions to make my goals for myself clear and to look back at to keep myself on track. I hope you friends enjoy reading this and maybe it inspires you to do some of the same things or check off the big items on your own list. Now, let's get into these hefty resolutions...

2018 ♡ Yearly Favorites

by Hampton Ivy, 1/03/2019

Happy new year, friends! I hope 2019 is off to a great start for all of you already. 
Looking back at 2018, I had a few favorites in fashion, beauty and lifestyle that I've mentioned here and there before during the year, but I figured I'd group them all together in one blog post to share what purchases really stood out to me last year. I will say, it was a little hard to come up with fashion favorites, not because there weren't certain items that I definitely loved over the year, but because most of them I bought on sale or at a thrift shop, so really none are available for anyone else to buy anymore, so I'm sorry if you're bummed at the lack of fashion favorites. That aside, I hope you all still find my favorites helpful and if you also love some of these products, I'd love to know which ones!
