Weekend Steals & Deals | Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale & Summer Outfits

Welcome to a happy Friday!  The Friday staring into the face of a long, 3-day weekend! We don't have any big plans (and the weather is forecasting lots of rain here), but we will just relax and be together and appreciate the heart of Memorial Day weekend.  My Dad and Grandpa both served in the military and we're so proud of their service, as well as the service of so many others.

On Monday, I'll be back recapping Week 8 of my Fitness Challenge if you want to check in.  Thank you so very much for your support so far and for your sweet comments on my Swag Bag Giveaway post.  As an entry in the giveaway, you have the option to leave a comment letting me know what type of content you like to see here on my blog.  I so appreciate your feedback, especially now that I'm adding the health/fitness comment here.  So far, there's been a pretty good mix of people that enjoy the variety of home decor, organization, fitness and fashion posts.

Of course, us fashion lovers are in luck over this weekend too, because retailers love to celebrate a holiday with big sales!  Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale, (including up to 40% off on Women's, Men's, Kid's styles, Shoes, as well as Handbags, Jewelry, Watches and Home) goes until Wednesday and I added the other stores' sales at the bottom of this post too.  So many retailers offering 40% off!  Great deals to be had.

If you missed it, be sure to check out my fashion go-to favorites (many on sale now!) in my HWH Everyday Favorites post this week.  It's a good one full of everything I wear frequently.  It took me a long time to compile, but it's worth it!

shorts

Y'all may remember from last week (Weekend Steals & Deals- Summer Shorts Edition) that I've been on the hunt for some fun shorts at good prices.  I found a few more this week at Old Navy.  You can't beat their prices! 

I ordered these palm leaf shorts, not sure how they'd look on, but I'm CrAzY over them!  How fun! And the fit is good- I got the 0.  They are flat front with a side zipper.

Weekend Steals & Deals | Palm Leaf Shorts

Weekend Steals & Deals | Palm Leaf Shorts
palm leaf shorts $27 on sale | swing tank $15.90 on sale | sandals | watch
I paired the shorts with my mint swing tank, but I think a bold, contrasting color top would be cute too. 

Weekend Steals & Deals | Palm Leaf Shorts & Beaded Wrap Bracelets
Cannot get enough of this wrap bracelet and the beaded horn necklaces!! 

Weekend Steals & Deals | Beaded Horn Pendant Necklace

These striped linen-rayon shorts are super comfy, but they are a tad big in the XS.  But, I think they may shrink some in the wash, so they should be okay.

shorts ($20) on sale  | tank ($18) | sandals ($79) on sale | necklace | earrings (similar) | bracelets (similar)
See, I told you those beaded horn necklaces are fun!

I've got the waist tied tight to hold them up here;)

It's fun to add color and pattern to your wardrobe through your shorts- instant visual interest! This shell pink pair is perfect for summer! I wouldn't say the quality is as good as the Caslon Addison 3-inch short, but it's not bad- just a little thinner material it seems, but they are 100% cotton.  These Old Navy pair are half the price too- the Caslon are $42.50.

My HWH Everyday Fave military shorts are in heavy rotation, but I added this Old Navy tank to the mix. It's very sheer- I wear this type of bra under or you could add a nude tank.

jacket

Help me decide between the two similar styles below.  The top one has a folded color and button pockets, the bottom one has a half-colar and fold-over pockets- like the zips on the bottom one too. And which color?? Seems like a great, lighter weight jacket for chilly nights.

HWH Loves Bloggers | KITCHENS

Welcome back to my series HWH Loves Bloggers!  Each week, we get to peek inside bloggers and instagrammers' gorgeous real life homes when they tag their photo on Instagram with #HWHlovesbloggers.  You can check out the series opener 5 Tips to a Perfectly Curated Home and see last week's gorgeous BEDROOMS here and the beautiful LIVING ROOMS here.

This week y'all were kind enough to share your KITCHENS with us and I'm always blown away by getting to peek inside another family's home.  This makes the voyeur in me very happy!

The kitchen is surely the heart of many homes and if it's anything like ours, doesn't stay clean for long!  In fact, mine needs a good cleaning right now!  But when the dishes are done and the piles that naturally accumulate on the counters are cleared, our kitchens breathe a sigh of relief and their true beauty shines.  You can see our kitchen all cleaned up here.

Next week, I'll be looking for your BATHROOM spaces.  Just tag your bathroom Instagram picture  (it doesn't have to be the whole room and you don't have to have a blog to be featured!) #HWHlovesbloggers for a chance to be featured on my blog and on my Instagram. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your spaces!
