Happy Friday lovelies!! I hope that you had a fabulous forth of July! We have been enjoying family time and the lakes this month. This was the first year that we took Josh with us to see fireworks and he LOVED it!! Charlie was completely mesmerized by the fireworks as usual. I can’t wait for Sam to be old enough to join us too. Jordan and I left the boys with my family and are enjoying some time in Chicago and Madison. I have been posting our midwest adventures on my Insta stories, you can follow along here.
Today’s look is all about this adorable Wayf wrapped up top!! The silhouette is super flattering, and the bit of sleeve will make it a great top for transitioning into fall. The best part is that it is currently on sale!! Woot woot!! And it also comes in solid white which I love but could not pass up the stripe. Here I paired it with Alice + Olivia shorts. I’m obsessed with these caddy shorts because they are one of the only shorts that fit me well. I have them in black too and get so much wear out of both colors. I was hesitant at first to get the white because I was afraid it would be hard to keep them clean but I literally wear them all the time.
Speaking of items on sale… the best sale of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale has officially begun!!! Today through July 20th is the pre-sale for Nordstrom credit and debit card holders. I highly recommend opening a card if you do not have one already, as popular items sell out super fast during this sale. And every purchase gets you points towards a Nordstrom note (aka free money). The rewards are the same for the debit card making it a really great option. The sale opens to non card holders on July 21st and runs through August 6th.
I’m working on curating my completed lists of favorites from the Nordstrom sale, until then some early favorites that I have spotted already are below.
Happy Monday lovelies!! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Last week was cray-cray! Just super busy. So I’m hoping this week will be a little calmer. I have to brag about my kiddos for a moment because over the past month they have had some big milestones. Charlie finished at his pre-school and “graduated” pre-k and started at a new camp…and the biggest he takes the bus to and from camp every day!! Josh started camp at pre-school for the first time and has done so well with the transition. And Sam turned 6 months and got his first two teeth. What!? How can my boys be this big already!?! We really enjoyed our weekend. While we love having the kids at camp during the week, that 8am bus is early and the week is just busy. So we’ve been relishing our weekends. Do any of you feel like summer can actually be more hectic than the school year at times?
I’m looking forward to our upcoming trip up North to be with family. We’ll get to enjoy a slower pace for a few weeks, which will be so nice. Until then we’ll chug away with our camp routine and brave the Texas heat. Summer came with a vengeance last week…talk about a heat wave!! I wore these white jeans and coral for the the official start of summer the other day. I’ve had this off the shoulder Parker top for a few seasons and still love it. I’ve linked some similar ones below.
If you follow me on Instagram, I’m SO excited to share that you can now shop my Instagram photos so simply just by taking a screenshot!! YAY!! It could literally not be more easy to shop, and is the most fab shopping time saver. Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app from the app store (it’s free!!). Then while purrusing on Instagram, whenever you see a photo of mine (or another LIKEtoKNOW.it enabled photo) all that you do is simply screenshot the photo and you’ll be able to shop the look/outfit directly!! I am really super excited about this because I know exactly how difficult it can be to locate and track down that fab item that I see in photos that I want to further take a look at or that I just have to have. With the LIKEtoKNOW.it app it literally could not be easier. Try it out and let me know how you like it.
Okay, I’m off to take a barre class and get mani/pedis with a dear friend! WOOT WOOT!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a spectacular Monday!!
Thank goodness it’s Friday!! Jordan has been traveling so much the past few weeks and solo parenting three kids that are ages 5 and under is no easy feat. Especially with Charlie’s busy sports schedule and end of the school year activities going on right now. So needless to say I am excited that it is Friday, dad comes home and I get my parenting partner in crime back to help for the weekend! 🙂 There is a new shopping and dining area opening up near us, and some of the restaurants are having their pre grand opening events this weekend, so we are making a date night out of it tomorrow night and checking them out. This mama cannot wait!! On Sunday we are hoping to go to the Byron Nelson golf tournament at the Four Seasons, as long as the storms stay to the north of us. The Byron Nelson is always such a fun time!
Today I’m wearing this fun yellow Pom Pom tassel top from Alice and Olivia. I love the yellow and am hoping the sunshine color will bring some sunny mojo our way for the weekend. Pom poms and tassels are a big trend right now and are such a fun detail on spring items. I linked below some other pieces with Pom Poms and tassels that I’m loving.
This top is so fab with the tiered layers, the poms, bell sleeeves and cold shoulder. So many spring/summer trends all in one shirt!! Here I went pretty straight forward and paired the top with white ripped jeans, tan stacked heels and Louis tote. I love these white ripped jeans and wear them all the time. These ones from Topshop are indentical and a fraction of the cost. The Louis Vuitton neverfull tote is my go to tote…however lately I’ve started feeling like my “neverfull” is always too full 😂 I blame it on being a mom of three! I’m thinking about upgrading to the larger size. This one is the MM and I think I need the GM now. The newer ones come with an inside pouch too that is perfect for storing a cell phone and keys. I’ll keep you all posted on if I end up getting the larger one.
What are you up to this weekend? Whatever it may be, I hope it is filled with sunshine and fun!
Happy Wednesday!! I hope you had a great weekend! We really enjoyed our long weekend away in Arizona, but it’s nice to be back home with our babies! We made the most of our time in AZ hiking, playing tennis, spending lots of time at the pool, ate really great food and relaxed on our patio at the resort by the fire pit. If you are ever in Phoenix you have to go to Steak 44! It was one of the most amazing meals we’ve ever had! One of our top 10! We loved the bar and the atmosphere there, had incredible service and the food was delicious.
We stayed at the Arizona Biltmore (a Waldorf Astoria property). I grew up spending a lot of time there on family vacations to Phoenix so it brought back a lot of fun memories. There was an SEC and a Big 12 conferences going on at the resort this past weekend while we were there, so Jordan enjoyed seeing lots of college football and basketball coaches. I think by far his favorite moment of the trip was meeting Coach Bill Self, the current men’s basketball coach for our alma mater KU!! If you saw my Insta stories than you know, we ran into him and chatted with him a few times, and Jordan even had a beer with him by the pool. Super nice guy! Rock Chalk!!
After our fun time in the dessert it is nice to be back home with our kiddos. But it is never easy getting back to reality and back into the swing of things. Can’t we just live in vacation mode all the time 😉
That is why this week I’m living in jeans, tees and jackets like today’s look. I could wear white jeans and a simple white tee just about everyday. Sometimes with heels like shown here in my Stuart Weitzman nudists, and other times (like today) with flippy floppies. I elevated the look by putting on one of my Blank NYC suede jackets. These jackets are perfect for the fluctuating spring temps, dessert evenings (miss them already!) and/or cool summer nights.
I have still been into white paired with blue and blush lately. It’s just such a great spring combination. I love the pop of color in this look from the blue jacket with all the white and the subtle touches of blush. And I love the ease of outfits like this one that you can take from day time to night time.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a terrific Wednesday!
Hi guys! I hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful beginning to the week! Charlie’s birthday party at the ballpark yesterday was a big success! He and his friends had a BLAST!! 🙂 We lucked out with the most amazing weather for the party, it was perfect baseball game weather. There’s a peek at the party on my insta-story and a cute pic of me and Sammy during the game on my Instagram.
I was a total slacker last week and only ran one time and only went to barre class twice, so this past weekend I got my slacker butt in gear and did both!! I’ve also been thinking and talking lately about trying to go gluten free for a while to see how I feel without any, or very little, gluten in my diet. I would love to hear from any of you who are gluten free…how do you do it?! What things should I know? For some reason I’m feeling a tad stuck on how to start. For the most part I have always been rather good about eating in moderation, and I did a 2 year stint without eating any beef or pork. But other than that I have never restricted myself from any foods or gone on any actual “diets”. So I would love to hear from those of you that are gluten free, to know how you got started with cutting out gluten?
Okay now on to today’s look… I have been wearing this Joie floral blouse on repeat a lot lately. It is soft, feminine and flow-y. And currently on sale! I decided to edge it up just a tad here by pairing it with my BlankNYC suede moto jacket. This jacket is everything! I got it first in brown and then I saw it in grey (last seen in this post) and in this blue and I could not resist the other two colors. For under $200 a pop, it was kind of a no brainer to get it in a few colors. What is the saying? Find something you love that fits you great and get it in every color 😉 Yea, totally and completely guilty of that!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day 🙂
