Tassel Earings

By, Amy Marie
Happy Friday everyone! This rainy Friday (here in Connecticut) calls for something bright! I have been loving tassel earrings and thought I would share some under $50!
I think tassel earrings are a fun accessory to brighten up any of your summer outfit. How do you feel about tassel earrings? Is this a trend you are loving too? Let me know your favorites below!  See you next Friday! Amy

Check out my post {featuring the pefrect outfit for Memorial Day} over on her blog!

Daily Blogs

Okay y'all, I will fully admit that this seems like sweeps week on Haute Table, and honestly, you would be right. I have gotten into a very relaxed state now that I am at home and have really not been feeling super motivated/creative. 
HOWEVER, that is going to change and I will start working on stuff starting tomorrow, so get ready! I have two h u g e travel guides coming out {think European getaways!}, tons of outfit posts and I am playing around with some week theme posts {like a beauty week, etc} so get pumped
Today I thought I would share what blogs I read daily because...believe it or not...I have never done this before! Ever since my friend Carla introduced me to Cupcakes & Cashmere back in sophomore year of high school I have loved blogs. It is one of the main reasons I started HT, so here are the blogs I click through daily, I even have a folder on my computer entitled "Blogs" and if I don't click on one of the links for more than a few days I delete it from the folder. I am including a link to their site as well as an Instagram they have recently done so you can get a feel for if you would like the content! Let me know in the comments if you read any of the ones I love! 
What blogs do y'all read? -xoxo darling, Hayden
Classy Girls Wear Pearls // Sarah Vickers is my go to icon for all things fashion.
A post shared by Sarah Vickers (@sarahkjp) on 
Summer Wind // I think she is just adorable and she does 
great round-up posts; her style is simple yet elegant as well. 
College Prepster // Carly has been blogging for a long time and I have been following her since high school. She always has the most adorable clothes and she is from Florida so I feel connected to her.
A post shared by Carly A. Heitlinger (@carly) on
Cupcakes & Cashmere// As I said above, C&C was the first blog I ever read. Emily has changed {in an amazing way} over the past years of her blog. She got married and now has the most adorable little girl but her posts are still so relatable. You must check her out. 
A post shared by Emily Schuman (@emilyschuman) on
Design Darling // I discovered this blog after reading CP for a while and goodness, Mackenzie is who I want to be when I grow up. She is so classy y'all! 
Lonestar Southern // Kate went to UT {Hook 'Em} and I interviewed her one time -- she is the nicest person you will ever meet and her blog is perfection. 
Southern Curls & Pearls // I do not have the exact style that she does but goodness her photos are so good! And her mom takes them! They give really good photography advice too. 
A post shared by Caitlin (@cmcoving) on
Atlantic-Pacific // If you have ever read Articles I'm Reading, I often link this woman's amazing blog. Her clothes are gorgeous and the photography is second to none...except the last one on this list...
Man Repeller // I read about MR in a magazine when I was younger so I immediately started reading it. Leandra & Amelia's writing cracks me up every time. 
A post shared by Man Repeller (@manrepeller) on
Sugar & Cloth // Wow, these DIYs and tips/tricks are phenomenal. Plus they live in Houston and drive up to Austin a lot so there are great links to where to take photos in Texas. 
Studio DIY // I love her so much, the costumes, the balloons, the over-the-top desserts...everything. 
A post shared by Kelly Mindell (@studiodiy) on
Prep Avenue // Shannon is adorable, I love her style & she gives great travel tips about Paris.
A post shared by Shannon H (@prepavenue) on
Gal Meets Glam // Last but not least, the most beautiful blog I have ever seen, GMG. Julia and her husband make not only one of the cutest couples ever, but they make such beautiful posts. Seriously, check it out.

Week Re-Cap

Y'all, I am so sorry for not posting anything yesterday! I have been relaxing with my family and just in general keeping everything very calm. Recently, I've been using the Sleep Analysis on the Health App on my iPhone and the past week I've been getting about 9 hours of sleep a night...very different from the 2-4 hours I was averaging during my last few weeks of classes. 
All of my photos this week seem to revolve around food...but you know, that's nothing different! 
How are you all doing? -xoxo darling, Hayden
 A breakfast at Lighthouse Cafe on Sanibel.
Beautiful beach weather...
My favorite spot on the island.
 Dinner & Brews at BurgerQue
 Saturday morning brunch at the European American Bakery.
A super fun Sunday followed up by a stop at Bert's.
In case y'all missed my Instagram
 story...I love Southern Charm.

Something New // 10 Pool Floats for Summer 2017

Hey lovely darlings! 
So I've been looking for something to replace Saturday Inspiration for a while, but I couldn't come up with a good idea. But a few weeks ago, the lovely Amy of AmyMarieBlog contacted me asking if we could do a collaboration on our blogs every Friday. I did a guest post on her blog a while back, here. So each Friday you will see a post by Amy here and you can find my post on her blog, here
I will be moving Articles I'm Reading to Saturdays and Saturday Inspiration will be retired for now. I hope y'all are as excited about this as me and if you have anything you want to see Amy or I write about, let me know-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
Here is Amy's first post:

Happy Friday! It was 90 here in Connecticut yesterday and all I could think about at work way laying by the pool. Last summer trendy pool floats started to the top of everyone's must have list. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite pool floats I have found recently. Let me know which ones have made it to the top of your list for this summer!

1.     Pineapple
2.     Cactus
3.     Rainbow
4.     Flamingo
5.     Swan
6.     Shell
7.     Lobster
8.     Duck
9.     Watermelon
10.  Mermaid

Week Re-Cap

This week has been so nice, it started off with finishing up classes and flying home. The weekend was my mom's birthday and Mother's Day so I spent a lot of time with family, eating, drinking and just being. We saw "Snatched" which was funnier than I thought it would be. I reconnected with a friend from elementary school and did a little "housekeeping" for school and this summer. I am really soaking up these few weeks before I move to my internship. Hope y'all enjoyed the Houston Guide yesterday, below are a ton of extra photos from Houston as well as my normal re-cap photos. Check back into the blog tomorrow for the last Houston post, about what I wore-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
A few shots from the many walls in Houston.
My favorite sign at the Neon Gallery.
Saturday night at Kemah boardwalk with the bestie.
A few shots from Discovery Green park.

The light tunnel at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
An out-take from shooting at Tiny's Milk & Cookies.
Hannah and I before the Chance the Rapper concert.
I got to shoot Devi's senior photos.
