I’m Hi guys! It’s a late night here getting this post up and out before I head to Dallas for a few hours tomorrow to see my girlfriends at a blogger style conference. I wasn’t originally planning on going since Jordan is only so little still. I figured it was out of the question. But, the more I thought about it, I figured I could make it work by just going for the day since it’s so close. I really didn’t want to miss the opportunity to see my friends that live in different states when they’d be practically in my backyard! Yet, it’s still stressful trying to get out of town and it will be new to me to be pumping outside the house, throughout the day! I’m leaving in the morning and will be back that night, so I know Jordan is in great hands with Grandma, hubby and brother. It’s hard for a new mom not to feel guilty about taking time for herself or leaving her baby, even for a little while. While I type this, I’m feeling those pangs and I haven’t even left yet! I hope it’s a fun time and the break is refreshing. It’ll be back to T-ball games bright and early on Saturday morning!
weekend steals & deals | outfits lately
I found a great new pair of boyfriend jeans that I’m excited to share with you, especially because they come in regular and petite and are only $89! I got the 2 Petite and can wear them cuffed or uncuffed and no hemming necessary for this shorty! A little bit of ankle showing is sassy! The distressing is just enough to make them look relaxed, but not so much that they look shredded.
And how about this striped peplum top?! Stripes + peplum = win! If you find a peplum that fits your torso properly, it can be such a slimming look since it cinches your waist. I’ll take that right about now! I’m on the ‘lose baby weight’ train and doing well, but most of what’s left is (mostly) at my belly so this top is nice and flattering.
In the photos above, I hadn’t washed the jeans yet. I’m fanatical about washing my kids clothes before I put them on them, but sometimes for me, I’m not always as diligent, but I need to be! Anyways, the pics below are after 1 wash and dry in the dryer, so I wanted to show you what that looked like too. I like that they got just a little more fitted after the washing. Same with that peplum top above, but I didn’t get a pic of it after the wash.
Striped top (XS, runs big) 3 colors | jeans (2P) | lace up heels (similar on sale) | necklace | reversible tote | watch | sunglasses
I’m guilty of finding a new pair of jeans I love and then wearing them all.the.time. Third outfit with those same jeans here:
For your weekend vibes, check out this graphic tee. Cute, huh?! And I finally changed jeans!
Sunday morning tee (size Small) | ripped white jeans (size 26) | lace up heels (similar on sale) | sunglasses | white watch (similar)
These ripped white jeans aren’t petite, but they still fit well. Yay!! They’ll be good to wear into summer too with tank tops.
I’ve been wearing these shoes so much, I’m crazy about them!
Speaking of tank tops, below is a camisole that didn’t fit me, 🙁 but is so cute with the adjacent stripes. It was size 2 (which the site said fits like a 0) and it was too tight in the chest so I had to return it. I was thinking it would be cute with those jeans and some fun heels for a night out. Or cover with a blazer for a more office appropriate look.
