Weekend Steals & Deals | Labor Day Sales!

Who's looking forward to a long weekend?!?!  It's our first one since school started, so we're all for it!      I need to give y'all a bump update, but wait no longer, if you're curious what this pregnant mama looks like at 13 weeks, see the pictures below.  The soft white button down still hides the bump, but the fitted striped shirt really shows it off.  

This weekend, be sure to take advantage of all the big Labor Day Sales happening, including Nordstrom's up to 40% off sale items.  I've been living in my Halogen denim top (was $68, now $23.90) lately because it's so soft and comfy.  The XS still fits me fine.  The BlankNYC ripped jean (was $88, now $70.40) I bought a size up (26) to accommodate my tummy and they are also really soft.  If you are a little taller than me (5 feet), the lower rips would probably fit at your knees better, but I'm fine with where they hit me.  And I'm all about my Yosi Samra Leopard Flat.  I prefer these over other brands for fit and comfort and since they run in whole sizes, I always get a 7 (1/2 size up from my normal 6 1/2).

Here's the Caslon crew neck long sleeve top that shows off this baby bump!  I'm not surprised I'm showing so early since that's how I was with James.  But, I am trying to watch what I eat better and I'm still training 3 days a week with my trainer.  Our workouts are less intense, but they're still an hour and I'm also getting in a little cardio.  I'm weighing about 112 right now, up 7 pounds from my contest.  

The Military Pants are from Nordstrom, but I think they're sold out so I found a similar pair at J. Crew- and they're on sale.  If the Nordstrom pair come back in stock, I'll be sure to let you know because I love them!   Still rocking the Yosi Samra Leopard Flat for running around in and don't we consider leopard a neutral?!  Goes with everything.  I've gotten so much use out of this reversible tote bag my parents gave me last Christmas.  I'm still flipping it around to show both the aqua and tan side.

I was also excited to see my BP stripe pullover marked down from $38 to $22.80! And it comes in 3 colors.  It's a junior, so I got a size small.

This cozy time Sun & Shadow Patchwork Blanket Cardigan is on sale for $38.40, regularly $64! Love it with jeans or leggings since it's longer in the back.

And those plaid cotton flannel boyfriend shirts that scream Fall are marked down too 50%!  These are awesome because they colors are really pretty and they have a pair of pockets in the front.

Of course, I have to keep you informed when my HWH Fave Halogen slub knit tee goes on sale! It's currently 50% off in several colors (and stripes) and comes in regular and petite.  I order regular XS and you can see below it goes with everything.  It's really the tee I reach for first if I just want a casual, relaxed look to be comfortable (but still stylish) in!

Restoration Hardware Lookalike Dresser & ShePlans Planner 2016 Launch

Hi friends!  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw we were working on transforming a less expensive Overstock wooden dresser into a high-end Restoration Hardware look-a-like.  I'm excited to get the $1800 look for about $650!  You can read all the details about the project and see the finished result later today on my friend Jen's blog, I Heart Organizing.  The dresser looks great in James' new room and I hope to show you some progress on that space soon!

Transform a less expensive wooden Overstock dresser into a RH look-a-like with the addition of drawer pulls! Easy!

Wardrobe Wednesday | Fall Dressing

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on our good news! Being able to share it with you makes it that much more real and every day it's hitting me more and more that there's going to be a baby in our home soon!  I am finally feeling much better.  That first trimester was so rough!  I slept through most of it and am very happy to have some energy back.  I hope to stay active and fit throughout the rest of this pregnancy and be a cuter pregnant person than I was with my first.  ;) I'm actually off to the gym after I publish this post!  

Today, I'm sharing a some new Fall dresses that I think are lovely and at great prices too.  First up, this Element 'Fall Leaves' shirtdress.  It's only $55 and has the cutest tie detailing in the back.  It's also lined so it's not too sheer.

Honey We're Pregnant!!!

We are thrilled to share our exciting news with you that our precious family of three will soon be expanding to four!  Growing up with brothers of my own, I've always wanted James to have a sibling and now he will have one come March.  He's super happy and has already picked out names:  'Hulk Smash' for a boy and 'Little Callie' for a girl.  Don't you just love that?!

Weekend Steals & Deals | Summer Sales & Fall Steals

Can we get a big 'ole YAY for the weekend!!!  Lately, with school back in session, weekends are even more precious and I find myself longing for a lazy Saturday morning as opposed to the hustle and bustle of busy weekday mornings.  

I love this time of year when the summer styles go on major sale and the Fall fashion is popping up in stores everywhere.  It's more like summer temps here for the majority of the year, so I'm always taking advantage of those discounts, but of course, I'm looking forward to the air getting crisper and the day I can bust out my leggings, sweaters and booties!  I found a great pair of leggings too (over 1,300 positive reviews and only $36!  They will go great with this lightweight tunic or this knit one. I created two cozy Fall outfits below, just after the Summer Sale items.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

First up, on big time sale is this Halogen Linen Tank for under $10!  You can't have too many of these, worn alone or layered under cardigans, jackets, or other tops.

Wardrobe Wednesday | Boho Chic Styles

It's Wednesday and we're already halfway through this week. :) I'm knee deep in several home projects with none of them quite ready to show, so hopefully, I can get it together today and focus on completing one thing at a time!  It feels a little chaotic to have multiple projects going on in different parts of the house, and I'm really looking forward to wrapping some of them up.  

Today is Wardrobe Wednesday and I have one of my favorite things I'm wearing lately to show you- this Free People lace trim tunic. It's one of those items that I'd been eyeing for months and finally purchased and am so happy I did.  You know you really want something when you can't stop thinking about it! And considering all the ways you can wear this tunic (as a dress, swimsuit cover up, or top with jeans or leggings), it's going to transition nicely from summer to fall.  Especially if you bought it in a rich Fall color.

Weekend Steals & Deals | Getting Ready for Fall

I don't know about you, but I'm so ready for this weekend! It won't be a lazy one though with a couples dinner tonight, two kids' parties, a family photo shoot, and (hopefully) a couple house projects I'm working on.  What are y'all up to?  Getting ready for school to start?  We started on the 12th, so we're already getting into that school groove over here.  

weekend steals & deals 

This week, while browsing online, I feel hard for this pullover fleece sweater for $45.  That heather grey and plaid combo is awesome, but scoop it up, looks like sizes are limited!  I'll be checking back because my size was sold out before I could get it.

And did you happened to pick up those fringe ankle booties during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?!  I hope so because they were $109 then, and up to $169 now. :(  But, I love that style with this outfit, so I put them together. Who's also looking forward to all those dark nail colors?  This one is called "limited addiction" by Essie.  Gorgeous! And right now at Nordstrom, if you purchase $100 in Kendra Scott jewelry, you get a a gift with purchase - a $70 value black faux-python wristlet.
