Weekend Steals

Today we’re making it a pool day with the kids and Grandma and my two nieces.  We’ve been looking forward to it all week.  It’s getting HOT here, about to reach 90!  What about where you are?? I just ordered this baby swim float, but not sure that Jordan will use it just yet.  It’s recommended for 9 months, but the reviewers were using it with 5 and 6 month olds.  She may just stay in the shade with me or Grandma, or dip her toes in, but I’m happy that James is getting better at swimming.  Did you see him diving for those rings on snapchat?  I still watch him like a hawk, but I don’t have to be right inside the pool with him anymore and he can swim without floaties finally! Yay!! 
weekend steals
When I went to Loft and tried on all those clothes, I ended up with Loft Cash to use by the 19th, so I was checking out their online sales.  They’re sneaky with that Cash, right?! Makes you want to shop more! Might need to pop back into the store because it was such a luxury to try on clothes and not have to deal with returns!  Many of my “outfits lately” are on sale too, so check those out if you missed it!
The lace detail on these next tops make them extra special.  It’s a really feminine and pretty touch. They are all on sale AND an extra 40% off the sale price!

Lace tee $39.50, $17.99 (3 colors)
Adore the lace detail at the top of this shirt and the same with this one ($20.99).

Or this one with stripes!  #crazyforstripes
stripe lace top $44.50, $23.99

lace sleeve blouse  $54.99, $32.99
This top reminds me of the one I have below that’s no longer available, but so fun with those sleeves.

Or how sweet is this eyelet flutter top ?! Cute shoulders! $54.50, $29.99
dot shirt dress $79.50, $41.93
Totally cute and work appropriate!  Nursing moms could even breastfeed in a shirtdress. 
eyelet stripe dress $69.50, $35.93
What a pretty color! I could see dressing this up for summer parties. 
stripe criss cross dress $59.50, $29.93
I like the back on this one and you could wear a racerback bra with it and the straps wouldn’t show in the back. 
puffer vest $79.50, $17.93
You might not be in the mood for a puffer vest, but this one is so cute with the diamond pattern and great price (under $20!).  It also comes in plum and ivory (which is great for those winter white outfits). 
$49, $29.40
These kind of sleeveless tops are what I love to wear in the summer.  They are great because they’re loose and a little flowy in the waist.  This one comes in two other colors, but I’m partial to this pretty blue. 
This 3/4 sleeve cardi sure is cute! Rock a red lip with it!  It also comes in a cool green pattern and is on sale from $46 to $27.60.
stripe maxi $69, $49.90
Adore this!  Torn between which color I’d get though, probably the blue and white.  Looks fresh!
Lush knit maxi $52, $38.90
The fun patterns on this cute and comfy maxi caught my eye.  It’s the same dress I’m wearing below in updated prints.

I’m all about the romper lately.  The fabric on this one is really soft and the high neck balances out the short shorts.

romper (grey or pink) $58, $34.80


My one piece still hasn’t arrived, but in the meantime, I’ve borrowed one from my friend, Trisa.  I saw these one-pieces below that are anything but boring!  I love this one, but it was only available in large when I looked. Update:  I found more sizes here! I also adore this gingham one and the style, but since I’ll probably get a couple suits, I want to keep them under $100.  Isn’t it cute?! Maybe it’ll go on sale?? #fingerscrossed

p.s.  The green mirrored Ray-Ban Aviators are price-matched right now, 25% off!  Learn the fit secret here. 😉

And my go-to MAC lipstick is 15% off.  Favorite shades include Brave Red, Candy Yum Yum, Faux, and Twig.  The lipstick is awesome because it lasts a long time and has no weird smell or taste.  I’ve been wearing that brand for years and still swear by it.

MAC’s 15 shade warm eye shadow palette is also 15% off, only $55 (a $100 value).

I use MAC brow pencil in ‘fling’ then dipbrow in ‘soft brown’ to fill in my barely-there eyebrows, and both are on sale too! You’ll need an angled brush like this to apply the dipbrow.  And watch this tutorial to see how to do it.  A little goes a long way- I’m still on my first little tub.

See you Monday with another summer fitness post! 🙂

  1. As a former lifeguard, just make sure Ms. Jordan can hold her head up completely independently, and you should be good to go in that cute floatie!

  2. Hi, I ordered the Carlson stretch skinny jeans (gotta love the price!), but was wondering what you did about the length? I'm 5'4" & they're crazy-long on me!

    1. Hi! I'm 5'0 (I think) and got size 26P- they are about 2 inches long on me and I fold the cuff up once to make a wide cuff or wear them uncuffed and slightly slouchy. I'm wearing them in tomorrow's post (6-14-16) so see the cuffed look there! But, I've gotten free alterations at Nordstrom on full price merchandise so you could check that out too if you want them hemmed.

  3. Cute pieces I want to grab them all.You Know In eyelite stripe dress you are looking adorable.I will purchase for my sister on her birthday.She like it much more.
