We’re calling week #1 of summer vacation a success over here and already looking forward to the weekend! I captured our easy morning and evening summer routines if you missed it, and the 10-Minute pick-up at the end of the day seems to be the best thing ever, even though it’s such a quick, simple thing. Since our weather looks clear and sunny today, you’ll find me and James at the pool. Now, it’s starting to feel like summer!! What are y’all up to this weekend?
WEEKEND STEALS & DEALS
I’m still loving dresses for summer and just ordered the second one below!
Bow down to the wrap dress! Pretty much universally flattering and comfortable.
ROMPERS UNDER $25
I don’t know about you, but I love a romper in the summer. I don’t shop Forever21 too often because I always think their things are for teenagers, but then I realized I often shop the juniors section at Nordstrom with success, so I should give it a try. They do have some really cute stuff there and you can’t beat the prices for things you may only want to wear for a couple seasons.
I was happily surprised with some of my F21 things I ordered online. I think maybe shopping in the store is what I don’t like. I know I’m old(er), but it seems like it’s really loud and overwhelming in there. But, I found their site easy to shop because it loads fast and they have good pictures with lots of images. The selection is better online too.
I already wore one of the rompers that arrived. It’s under $20!
I really wanted to love this 3/4 sleeve crochet-paneled gauze romper, but it didn’t work out for me. Maybe if you’re not so short like me, it would be cuter! I liked the top part, just not the shorts.
I was actually pretty smitten with F21’s selection of embroidered tops. I’ll have to show you a few keepers that I haven’t photographed soon! I found that my regular size XS fit best, the Smalls were too big. I’m 5’0, about 107 pounds.
These NYDJ skinny ankle jeans come in so many fun colors and are 33% off! I have them and they are little more high-wasted than most jeans these days. I can appreciate that and actually love how they fit and feel, but you may hate it. Just be forewarned. Maybe order them in your regular size and one size down, and take advantage of free returns if they don’t work out.
I’m showing them with a crop top here so you can see the where the waist sits better. See how they actually come up over your rear in the back?! Nice! I feel like I should buy a few new colors! But, which ones?!?!
