Dressing Room

When shopping online (because who has time to go to the store?!) it’s hard to tell how something fits and feels. “Will that look good on me? Do I need to size up? It is scratchy?”  My goal is to take the guesswork out of shopping by inviting you into my Dressing Room where I honestly share the real-deal fit and review.  And to help get you started, I scour the stores to find the cute and comfy new styles you’ll be curious about and show you how to wear them.

For size reference, I’m super petite, 5’1, 105, 34D.  I usually wear 0P or 25 in jeans and XS or 0P tops.

Thank you so very much for all of your heartfelt comments on yesterday’s Take Care of You post.  That one was definitely from the heart and it feels good to share things like that with you.  When you respond so positively, it feels even better.  I know for sure that we are all in this together.  I appreciate you so much!

And, y’all also were crazy for my first ever Amazon haul!  If you missed it, I did a live try-on session on Stories and saved it to my highlights if you want to check it out.

HUGE Amazon Fashion Haul

HUGE Amazon Fashion Haul

Hello friends! It’s a big day over here- the first day of school!  We’ll be dropping off our big third grader this morning and I’ll be trying to hide tears on the way home.  It never fails that I’m a big sap ball on the first day of school.  Who am I kidding, I’m sappy the whole week before too! But, on the other hand, I’m happy to get back to our routine.  I’m in my element when we’re running on schedule and being productive.  When does school start for you?

I’m super excited for today’s post- it’s my first ever Amazon fashion haul

It’s finally here friends!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone!  Cue the confetti and champagne! And it’s an extra special day because everyone’s favorite girlfriend, Ali-Shaun, is joining me in the dressing room!  If you don’t know her, she’s a mom friend from my son’s school and our kids have grown up since PK3 together.  She asked me to do a Style-A-Friend with her a while back, and since then, y’all have fallen in love with her fun loving and genuine spirit.

We had such a fun time hanging out together and seeing all the new fall styles- definitely catch a glimpse of us LIVE on Stories today!

♦ DAY 24 of the #HWHFitnessChallenge!  Log your exercise here. ♦

Hi friends!  How is your week going?  It’s always a little bit of a transition coming home from being out of town. It hit me hard yesterday, and for the first time since we began our 30-day challenge, I missed a workout!  UGGGGGGG!!!!

I didn’t go in the morning because my husband left for work early, then I was working during the day. That evening, I knew I should get off the couch and at least go for a walk outside,

Hi friends!  Yay for Friday!! It’s been a busy week!  We started with a Week 2 of the Fitness Challenge and I shared a new workout (free printable included) that you can do at home.  On Tuesday, James came to work with me and gave your kiddos 5 summer reading recommendations (thank you SO much for the love on that one- y’all blew me away with your kind comments), then we chatted hair and how to get those sassy beachy waves,

Hi friends!  I’m already starting to feel so off my game with summer here.  I can’t tell you how many times this week I’ve had to ask what day it is! Does that happen to you too? I’m just the kind of person who functions better with routine and lately that’s been out the window!

I placed some big fashion orders recently for the next dressing room post and when the clothes started arriving, there were so many winners!

Happy happy weekend friends!  If you need me, I’ll be sweating my butt off at Field Day today!  It’s an all-day event at the school with sports and games and prizes and even a dunking booth!  It’s always a fun time, and also signals the countdown to the last two weeks of school!  Can you believe we’re at that point already?!

Today’s Dressing Room post is starting to look towards summer! #getready!!

For size reference, I’m super petite, 5’1, 105-110, 34D.  I usually wear 0P or 25 in jeans and XS or 0P tops.

DRESSING ROOM TRY ON & FIT REVIEW

DRESSING ROOM TRY ON & FIT REVIEW

Welcome to the weekend friends! This week seemed to fly by which is fine by me because I’m ready for the weekend for sure!

On Wednesday, I chopped about 4 inches off of my hair and I feel like a new woman!  The front and sides were much shorter than the back, so we evened it out. It always feels so good to get a fresh cut and now my hair feels fuller and like it has more volume. Plus, it’s easier to fix, which is definitely a bonus! If you’d like me to do an updated hair tutorial for this shorter length hair let me know!

Happy Friday from Dallas!  We made it in one piece, attended the poolside party and of course, went out for Mexican food after!  I’m still under the weather, which is a bummer, but fingers crossed that tomorrow is better! I posted the outfits I packed yesterday if you want to check them out, but it’s getting cold here and I’m not prepared for that!  Check in on Stories if you want to follow along this weekend!

It’s sure to be a long day tomorrow, but I’m popping in to share some of the killer sales going on right now.

Oh man, it never ceases to amaze me how hard it is to get out of town!  I feel like I could write a productivity post on that on it’s own! My first tip would be : however long you think it’s going to take you to get ready, double it! It was awesome to read all of your comments on the 10 Habits for a Productive Day post.  Thank you so much for chiming in!

It’s that time of year again when I get to head to Dallas for a blog conference.

Welcome to Friday friends!  I just typed in the post date and is it really Friday the 13th?!  What does that mean?!  Let’s just all be prepared for and expect only good things to come our way today! How does that sound?  I’m feeling it!  For you too!  And I’m putting that good energy out there for my kids. They both have a serious case of the sniffles/runny nose and I swear if Jordan sees me coming at her one more time with a ‘boogy wipe’ she’s gonna seriously lose it.  #poorgirl

Y’all are in for a treat with today’s dressing room post because I found some seriously cute stuff for you!

Happy Friday friends! It’s our first weekend in March and our sweet James’ 8th birthday on Sunday!  As much as it surprises me, I’ve never been the “I wish they could stay babies forever” type. Each stage with James has been better than the last and he’s been the most delightful person since Day 1!  He’s got the kindest heart, is dangerously smart, and super funny too.  Not to mention, he’s a great big brother! We just love him to pieces!  We’ll be celebrating his birthday with a football party at our local park on Sunday morning.  I’m so thankful for a low-key party- all we need is donuts,
