White Jeans After Labor Day | Weekend Steals

Now it's legit!  Temps in the 50s this morning! Woo-hoo! I'm not sure how long this will last- but we're sure soaking it in today!  I've got lots on my to-do list and some home decor posts to share with you soon!  We've made big progress on the nursery bathroom, our living room (see InstaStories) and also our Fall dining room.  I'm going to photograph that this weekend and share it with you Monday! You can see last year's here.

Today, I've got lots of Weekend Steals to share with you! First up, if you're not quite ready to give up your white jeans, I have a great neutral look for you! You can (and I do!) wear white jeans year round.  That old rule 'no white after Labor Day' is out the window.  My favorite white jeans are by AG but they're pricey and rarely go on sale.  I love them because they fit like a real jean (98% cotton) and not a jegging like so many white jeans, so they fit really nice and smooth.

I searched and found two more pairs of white jeans with 99% cotton and 1% spandex that are great for the budget this pair for $69 and this pair for $79.

You heard me raving about these boots here, and I'm loving finding more ways to wear them.  They're on sale now 30% off, so now only $129 and they were $189.  They also come in black and bordeaux, but I'm practicing restraint.  Someone please buy the black ones for me! 

The white tank is the one you always see me in, for example here and here.  

My short sleeve grey cardi is, unfortunately, no longer in stock, so I linked several similar below.

More steals and restocks I found below.  This turtleneck I wore with these awesome, affordable 'add-10-inches' Bootcut Jeans is 40% off in the prettiest ocean blue.  It's really soft and a must if you like turtleneck tops.  I'm wearing XSP.

This button-back sweater is back in stock in 5 different colors, I'm loving the red! This throwback pic is so different from how I look currently.  First of all, I was itty bitty pregnant with Jordan and my hair was short and super blonde.   

The Fall Plaid Scarf is back in stock (under $25) too after being sold out forever!  It's got such great Fall colors and goes great with your outfit or home decor.

Remember this baby soft Cocoon Knit Cardi?  It's back too and also comes in grey.  It runs big, I'm in XS and it's still roomy and long.

This Ruffle Neck Sleeveless Sweater is restocked in all sizes ($49) but size up because it runs small.  I ended up with size Small.

Military Jacket $89, $53.40

Burnout Sweater $49, $29.40 (limited sizes)

Trust me, I know we're not even to Halloween yet, but these adorable Christmas sweaters sell out quickly, so wanted to show you now so you don't miss out!  I'm already working on a home decor Christmas project that I'll be able to show you early next month!

Faux Leather Spanx Leggings

Oh hallelujah!  Houston got the memo and now is just showing off with temps getting in the 50s tonight!  And perfect timing because I have a fun post for you today- something a little out of my comfort zone, but worth giving a try - faux leather leggings.  But not just any faux leather leggings, these are by Spanx and we all know how I'm a fan of those

How To Dress for Fall When it's Hot Outside

Oh man, this is so our dilemma here in Houston and maybe yours too if you live in a climate that inconveniently forgets to realize that it's FALL already!! Hello! We're in late October, Houston - did you miss the memo?!?! #rude We want to wear boots and sweaters and scarves and all.things.fall while drinking our pumpkin spice lattes!!!! Actually, make mine a white mocha. ;)

We'll show you, weather!  We're not gonna let a little thing like 80 degree temperatures stop us from wearing the clothes we've been politely and patiently waiting to wear since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July! #somuchgoodness

BH&G Stylemaker Recap

How was your weekend friends?  Ours have been packed lately with sports but we did have a nice relaxing Sunday and I got lots done around the house.  On Saturday, in between soccer and baseball games, my girlfriend and I took a quick trip down to Galveston for my trainer's bodybuilding show. As luck would have it, we arrived while the show was at a break, but we took advantage of being at the beach and had lunch on the patio at The Spot, dug our feet into the sand, and browsed some local shops before heading home.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were there.  It felt like a mini-vacation with my best girlfriend.

Sweater Weather

We are certainly glad it's the weekend!  This dang stomach bug wiped out our whole family this week.  First it got Jordan, then me and my hubby, and finally James.  Thankfully, everyone is better now, but we just want to relax this weekend!  You have no idea how happy us Houstonians are that we are finally seeing a dip in our temperatures. It just puts everyone in such a good mood to have cooler weather and we're so over sweating our butts off after a long, hot summer.  Makes us want to pull out all our warmer clothes and celebrate with a sweater party! 

Today, I'm share two lighter weight sweaters I'm smitten with right now.  We'll still have to save our heavier sweaters for a little later.  First up is this cozy v-neck sweater that comes in 4 colors and is loose fitting, I'm wearing size XS.

The Best Coffee Shops in Houston

I've been wanting to write this post for a long time, and after such a positive response from the NYC Food Tour post, it prompted me to finally get it done! My hubby and I aren't big drinkers, but we love a good cup of coffee and Houston hosts a number of great coffee shops to sit back, relax and enjoy the brew.  We'll go as a family or as a quickie day date when it's been too inconvenient or hard to line up a sitter for an evening out.

The Perfect Fit Bra

Happy Columbus Day friends! For us, that means no school and a day with two of James' cousins that he loves to play with.  We got 'booed' over the weekend, so we need to do some booing of our own. Today will be a great day for that!  Thankfully, Jordan is feeling so much better, and she's back to her energetic, happy self.  Thank you for the well wishes!  It's definitely no fun when baby isn't feeling well.

For today, I'm continuing the important, but often overlooked, business of undergarments (see my favorite sports bras here, favorite shapewear here, and now, probably the most coveted and useful bra for everyday- the T-shirt bra!  

Isn't it amazing how elusive a good T-shirt bra can be?  They're often too tight, too loose, don't give enough support, the straps hurt, the underwires poke, and on and on.  But, when you find the perfect bra that you put on and forget about, it's like a little piece of bra heaven!

I was introduced to ThirdLove, the first bra brand I've heard of that offers half-sizes and also takes into consideration your breast shape when fitting you for a bra.  And, they have a quick online quiz that you can take from the comfort and privacy of your own home if you feel uncomfortable getting a bra fitting from someone at a store or you just don't have the time.
