Weekend Steals & Deals

Good morning!  It's good to be checking in with you and getting a respite from heavy responsibilities lately.  I cleared my calendar this week so I could focus on family and spent the majority of my time getting things set-up and organized out at my mom's house.  I'm super excited to be bringing my favorite friend and cleaning lady over there on Saturday morning so we can do a really deep clean together.  I'm actually able to make it to the gym today for a much-needed workout and I'm always amazed what an hour of exercise can do for my mind and body.  AND, if you've been following me on Instagram, you know I've gotten really excited to start Bible journaling.  My new journaling Bible was supposed to arrived yesterday, but hopefully, it makes it today!  Have y'all heard of this?  What do you think? 

weekend steals & deals 

I shared one of my very favorite new, cool (affordable) tees lately and wanted to show you how it looks on someone other than the model. 

Halogen Relaxed Slub Knit Tee (regular & petite) 

Perfectly soft and not so baggy you lose your shape.  I'm 5'0 and wearing XSP.  I just laundered this shirt for the first time and it's softer than ever.  LOVE!!

Splendid wedges found at Marshall's (similar or in coral (on clearance, extra 30% off with code EXTRA35)

Perfect length in the back too. 

I'm always excited when something I've featured goes on sale, and this Topshop tee is no exception.  Definitely scoop this up now! It comes in five colors. 

Topshop Slubby tee $28, $16.99 *new markdown* :) 

If you like this style top, check out this post for more comfy "workout wear" that you can sport outside of the gym.  

The Mixed Media Tunic has become one of my favorite "dressy casual" tops lately.  I have it in red and pale yellow (sold out), but I'm also loving these spring colors.  This is the kind of top that you can wear to work and look professional, but it's still casual enough to wear on the weekend when you want to be on the dressier side of casual.  This top is also great for when I'm doing school functions. 

Pleione Mixed Media Tunic $58, $34.80 (regular & petite) "green biscay" (aqua)

Kendra Scott Pendant Necklace I'm surprised at how much I wear this necklace.  Makes me really want another one in another color! 

I've been a "neutrals girl" most of my life, gravitating toward white, black, cream and tan, and only in the past couple of years started wearing color.  Something like these blue heels really gives an outfit a boost of personality.  This exact pair is no longer available, but I found some other similar. 

1 | Jessica Simpson Claudette Pump $78.97
2 | Vince Camuto Carlotte Pointy Toe Pump $128.95 
3 | Ted Baker London Elvena Pump $185, $111.90
4 | Charles David Pact Pump $98.95 

I also got a picture wearing my new little rushed dress and wanted to show you how you could wear it with nude wedges (and a strapless bra so your bra straps don't show:) 

more awesome sale items 

This dress is so cute, adore the pattern. 

Sun & Shadow Lace Trim Thermal Top $34, $20.40 (other colors, torn between this and the blue)

Halogen Stripe Cashmere Sweater $128, $59.90 (other colors) Be still my neutral-loving heart! 

Caslon Front Zip Field Jacket $88, $52.80 (regular & petite) (also in grey)
This type of lightweight jacket is perfect for cooler Spring days or cold AC interiors. 

Soprano Halter Tank (2 for $28) (other colors) 
This tank is perfect for summer weekend days.  I'd wear it with a racerback bra like this

Pleione Racerback Tank $39, $23.40 I'd totally get this if they had my size- it's currently only available in M, L, and XL.

Painted Threads Print Palazzo Pants $42, $25.20  Call me crazy, but I l-o-v-e Palazzo pants.  I like to wear them with a tank or simple, solid top and flat sandals.  Pajamas on the go!

Topshop Textured Wet Look Leggings (regular & petite) $40  
Here's another one to call me crazy on, BUT, my girlfriend wore pants like these out on Saturday  night when we did a girls sushi date and totally rocked them.  She wore them with a loose black t-shirt, bootie heels, a long necklace and cross body bag. Total hotness for a night out. 

topnecklace | bracelet (square) (arrow) $58, $38.86 | fringe bag | 
Vince Camuto bootie ($148.95, $89.98

I have to say I think the way the leggings are styled on the site is a "don't".  What do you think?
