Woo hoo, we’re halfway to the weekend again! So far, this summer has been both fun and also exhausting! I know I just posted about getting Jordan to sleep through the night
, so that has given me more sleep lately, but the days still feel so loooong! It’s hard to keep up with these kiddos! This is why they say it’s best to have your kids when you are young!
When I wore the dress to the doctor appointment, the lighting was bad the dress looked more grey, with drool on it! #always, but it’s actually blue like in the photo above.
We have gotten out of the house several times now without any injuries or fights and all of us got back home in one piece. I consider that a win! Bowling is a great summer activity here because it is so hot in Houston. I wore this button front shirt
so I could nurse Jordan and it worked perfectly! It’s also on sale 40% off
Many days are just jean shorts and tee-shirt days. This white tee
is one of my faves. It’s included in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (normally $25, now $17.90)
and also comes in regular and petite in about a million colors.
On this particular day, I headed to one of my fave coffee shops in Houston, Tout Suite, to do a little work on my computer. They actually have good food and of course, great coffee there too. My hubby ended up meeting me since the place is downtown.
We ventured out on our first short road trip with Jordan for the 4th of July to Austin. Our good friends moved there last December, so it was awesome to get to hang with them again. It was their first time meeting Jordan!
is so easy to wear and also comes in a pretty teal and also black.
I stocked up on these racerback tanks
in a few different colors- they’re only $16.50 and 50% off that now!
I’ve been carrying Jordan in this Sakura Bloom baby sling
and I find it really helps my back. She doesn’t like being in her stroller and it’s often difficult to navigate it down crowded streets, so carrying her has worked out better for us. I used to get really hot with this baby wrap, but not so much with the Sakura one.
While we were in Austin, I found this swimsuit
at Target! I tried a few one-piece swimsuits from Victoria’s Secret that didn’t work out for me, but this striped one-piece was a winner.
So excited to see my fave maxi skirt
back in stock in all sizes and also in black and grey AND on sale 30% off, under $30 now
! Since red is the only one I have, I want the other colors too!
Man, I’m addicted to these mini caramel fraps this summer! I usually order them without whip cream, but sometimes they forget and I’m too shy to correct them. Y’all asked about my bracelet
, which was a gift so I wasn’t sure where it was from, but I found it online. Here’s a similar gold link bracelet t
hat’s less pricey.
This outfit from casual Friday
also doubles as a date night look. I love how peplum tops cinch you in at the waist, making you look smaller there. Optical illusion at it’s best!
Thankfully, Jordan has been sleeping well in her crib and I took advantage of her going to bed early and had a dinner date with my girlfriend Audrey a couple Fridays ago at Grotto, an old Italian restaurant that’s been there forever. We ordered wine, but they were out of our choice, so the waiter brought another bottle and when I looked at the label, it said Jordan!
has been in heavy rotation- so cute and I like the flowiness of it. It’s normally $49.50, but only $22.50 now
This outfit has been a fave, something about that embroidery and the necklace is a stunner. I wore it to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Local Foods.
Isn’t the green seating at Local Foods fun?! I love the teriyaki bowl there and I get it with shrimp.
Another date night look (I didn’t get a recent pic, so this one is old) is this black jumper. If you’re a shorty like me, you’ll have to get it hemmed.
On a recent Sunday, I took Jordan with my to her first girls’ brunch at our girlie hangout, Empire Cafe. This tank
is only $20 and comes in 12 colors. A summer staple for sure!
By the way, I love this little petite camera
. It’s the one I’ll keep in my bag or travel with since it’s so small and it takes amazing pictures. You can set it manually (which is how I normally take pics), but I don’t even do that with this camera, I just shoot in automatic and it adjusts to the light conditions perfectly. The other cool thing is that it’s wifi, so I can upload the pics to my phone to share on FB or instagram or via text/email.
I had to scoop up the Joe’s jeans – I’ve been wanting this ‘Honey’ Curvy skinny jean
for awhile and was waiting for it to go on sale. They’re about half off now, under $100!
I still need to get them hemmed, I just rolled them underneath for the time being.
Y’all know I’m #teamromper and remember all the good things I said about this one
when I first tried it on
? This palm print romper
looks sophisticated and fun at the same time. It’s not too short, not too low cut, and is different from many I’ve seen because it wraps up top and ties at the waist. It even has pockets!
And I couldn’t bear to leave you without sharing one of my best finds from the Nordstrom sale, something I’ve never owned before, but am so glad I finally do- over the knee boots
!!! I ordered 3 pair since my store didn’t have them in stock and these were the clear winner! They fit true to size (although a few reviewers recommended ordering a 1/2 size up). I usually wear a 6 in sandals and heels and a 6 1/2 in shoes I wear a sock with, like boots and athletic shoes. I got a 6 1/2 in these and can wear a thin sock comfortably.
Even though I’m about 5 feet tall, they are easy to both walk and sit in. I can bend my knee to sit in these and some of the other ones I couldn’t. And they aren’t all the way up my thighs! This pair also comes in black leather and grey suede. The heel height is 3 1/2 inches, which I like because it gives me height, but isn’t too tall for walking in.
Of course I haven’t actually worn this outfit out of my bedroom yet, but it will be anxiously waiting come Fall!
This sweater runs big, size down one. It also comes in burgundy and black.
I’ll be back to share more of my Nordstrom sale pics
