Weekend Steals & Deals | Embroidered Tank

We finally got some pool time in this week, which is definitely making it feel like summer!  I'm happiest to report that my son is making significant progress in his swimming lessons.  He's been going everyday for the last two weeks and we decided to continue for the next two.  It's a commitment we take seriously, so I'm fine taking him everyday.  We just have to work our schedules around his lessons.  We were able to get last-minute tickets to see Garth Brooks in concert tonight!  I've seen him once before and he puts on a great show, so it should be super fun.  You can get a peek at what I planned to wear below, that didn't work out;( and a backup idea.  I'd love to hear what you think.

Nordstrom's Summer Clearance Sale (women, kids, and men styles up to 40% off) ends Sunday, so be sure to take a look.  When I'm putting together my weekly Friday post "Weekend Steals & Deals", I"m often shopping right alongside you!  I can't help but add certain "must have" pieces to my online shopping cart and I thought you might like to see how some of those things worked out (or didn't) for me.

I posted a Summer jeans shorts outfit a couple weeks ago and ordered the Embroidered Tank in XS. I absolutely love it and have already worn it several times!  It's perfect for hot summer days and the detail on the hem gives it that something extra.  It looks cute with my reversible tote too (really want the coral one!).

The back is cute too! I'm wearing it with an aqua racerback sports style bra from Target.  Like this.

I also bought the Old Navy green palm leaf shorts and they are such a fun print.

But, I might be even more smitten with the top! Again, I'm wearing a racerback bra and you can see lots of racerback/strapless bra styles here.

And looks like my first ROCKSBOX is a success!  Two girlfriends recommended it to me because they use it and love it, so I finally decided to try it.  It's similar to Stitch Fix (which I've been getting for over a year now), where they send you three pieces of jewelry to wear until you're ready to send it back.  If you want to keep something, you can buy it at a discount.  Stitch Fix is the same concept, but with 5 clothing items (including accessories).  I've enjoyed getting my Stitch Fix every month, so I think I'm gonna like Rocksbox too. 

Below is what was inside my first Rocksbox.  I want to keep all three pieces they sent me! If you're interested in joining, you can use my affiliate code honeywerehomexoxo (thank you!) to get the first month free, and then, when you refer a friend, you'll get $25 to spend toward Rocksbox jewelry.

This jewelry goes perfectly with the outfit I planned to wear to the Garth Brooks concert tonight, but the embroidered lace top is too big! I'm so disappointed because I stalked this and another Hinge top and waited to purchase until they went on sale, and they are both too big in XS.  Boo!!

Here is my XS, it's gorgeous in person and I love the detail, but it's too boxy on me.  I hope someone else scoops this up because it really is sweet! 

The other Hinge floral appliqué top was also too big, and I'm so disappointed!

Either one of them would have been perfect for the concert.  But, then I got to thinking, maybe I'll just wear a simple, stylish t-shirt.  It will be comfy (that's why I chose those almost-flat sandals) and I can still dress it up with the jewelry. I just got the HWH Everyday Fave Halogen Slub Tee in a deep orange color "red paprika" and it just might be perfect for jamming out to Friends in Low Places.  ;)

Looks like this color is sold out in the Halogen tee, but Trouve makes a similar v-neck tee in red paprika and it's currently 40% off ($22.80)

Madewell makes a good pocket v-neck tee for $19 and the BP v-neck tee looks great and has gotten a ton of positive reviews (also $18 or 2 for $28).
