Weekend Steals & Deals | cold shoulder top

Let's hear it for Friday!!  Man, this week has kicked my butt!  Did you hear my news yesterday?!  I've been super busy trying to pull this design together and actually got my first piece of decor yesterday! It's making me so excited to share with you which room Sita and I are decorating!  I can finally share that on Wednesday.  Hope you come back to hear!  

I'm so very thankful that baby Jordan is cooperating and I have my mom's help during the day. #ittakesavillage  I always love reading those "day in the life posts" that let you peek into someone's real life and I plan to share what my days have looked like lately with life with two kids on Monday! As for this weekend, I don't even know what's on the agenda.  I think we have a T-ball game and hopefully that's it, because if there's anything else, I'm not prepared! 

Let's not worry about that for now, on to this week's Weekend Steals & Deals!  And at the end of the post are a couple of my outfits lately that I'm crazy about! Especially the cold shoulder top!  It's also no joke (ha!) that some fabulous Kendra Scott jewelry is on sale now at Nordstrom! ;) 

weekend steals & deals

stripe v-neck tee $48, $28.80 
Solid tees are a closet staple, but the stripe and contrasting v-neck on these really caught my eye. 

tie-neck sleeveless blouse $58, $34.80 (regular & petite)
I happen to be smitten with the whimsical butterfly print, but if you're not, it also comes in two other patterns.  You can wear this tucked in with a skirt or pants too for a more conservative look.  I had this same top from a couple years ago with lips on it (size XS) and still love it. 

scallop hem top $39 (also in white or blue)
Little details like the scallops on this top make it more special.  Below is a short sleeve version for just $25.

topshop scallop hem top $25 (limited sizes) - size Small pictured

Sandra plaid roll-sleeve top $69, $41.40 (2 other colors)
Can't get enough button-front shirts.  Especially the ones with contrasting cuffs. This brand makes good quality shirts.

Lush tunic $42, $27.90 (5 colors) 
Over 500 positive reviews and most said you should size down since it runs a little big. 

turtleneck dress (in grey) $58, $34.80 (size XS) | necklace | heels 
I just wore this dress on a recent date night, the grey one is on sale now under $35!

LOFT has a big 50% off sale happening right now & free shipping on orders over $125!  When I have a little more time (and have lost some more weight), I want to pop in and try on their petite pants again.  It's been a long time since I've worn them, but they were such a go-to when I worked full-time in an office.

chevron sweater $49.50, $24.75
This type of lightweight sweater is what I crave this time of year.  Pretty and feminine and keeps me just warm enough!

striped dress $98, $49 
This dress says, "Take me to a party, please!" 
Wear it with:  Would be so cute with this crystal necklace and these shoes

beach strapless romper $59.50, $29.75
When can we go to the pool?!  It's calling my name!  Gonna need a bikini to go with it soon! 

Found two must-haves at GAP (get 40% off with code APR40 for cardmembers or 35% off with code APRFUN).

smock dress $69.95 (40% off with code APR40)
This dress is just ADORABLE! It also comes in black!

GAP 1969 distressed true skinny ankle jeans $69.95 (40% off with code APR40) (regular, petite, tall)
The reviewers are crazy over this style.  They come with a little bit of stretch and are priced just right (especially with the discount!)

How cute are these heels?!  They'd be perfect with your white jeans this Spring and Summer!  But, they also come in 9 other colors for under $60!

Finally, Nordstrom has a sale on Kendra Scott jewelry that you don't want to miss if you love her pieces.

outfits lately

I ran some errands with my mom this week and she's getting pretty good with the camera! #thanksMom! You better be quick when you only have 10 minutes to snap a few pics! 

This triped mock neck tank is thin and lightweight.  It's got some sass with the swingy shape and deep side cut, so you need to wear a bra you like to show a bit of or a bandeau underneath.  I'm wearing a racerback, sports-style bra with mine.  How cute is this one?!

The backpack-diaper bag is working like a charm.  But, I haven't really taken full advantage of it's hands-free functionality because I've only been out with Jordan a couple times.  I bet this summer it will get a lot more use when she's a little older and can go out of the house more.

And last but not least, my first cold shoulder top!  The color and fit is fabulous on this one ladies (but it also comes in white).  You'll feel like a million bucks in it!  I love the swing it gives when you walk. 

cold shoulder top size XS | necklace ($18) (also in black or aqua now!)

So, so crazy over these lace up sandals - they fit true to size and are easy to walk in because the heel is on the chunky side.

The back has a cute criss cross that you can wear with a regular bra and it won't show your straps.  I'm so comfortable in my racerback bra that I wore it with this top and didn't mind it showing though.

  1. First, I love your blog. Thanks for all the cute ideas. Sadly those Gap jeans are not 40% off. It's only off reg priced clothing 😩 But I love them. So I'll be purchasing them anyway 😄

    1. Did you see my comment below? Hope you got the discount! Please let me know how you like those jeans when they arrive!! Have a great weekend!

  2. Woops. Never mind what I said about those jeans. It looks like that is the regular price. But some reason the code is not working. It says only reg priced items. Hmm

    1. Just double checked - now I see that 40% off code works only for card members :( but there's a 35% off code for everyone - use APRFUN

  3. Love your blog!
    I couldn't get the Gap code to work either! 😢

    1. Thank you for letting me know! I'll check it too!

    2. Ok, now I see that 40% off code works only for card members :( but there's a 35% off code for everyone - use APRFUN
