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.

♦ DAY 12 of the #HWHFitnessChallengeLog your exercise here. ♦

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,

♦ DAY 11 of the #HWHFitnessChallengeLog your exercise here. ♦

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.

PACKING FOR A GIRLS WEEKEND & URBAN DECAY GIVEAWAY

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!

I always feel like celebrating that we’ve made it to Friday!!  You too?!  It’s been a busy week over here with our Spring Home Tour on Monday, my Everyday Makeup Routine on Wednesday and March Loves yesterday!  Y’all said you’d like to see the makeup tutorial in a video, so I’m working on creating that for you!  Thanks for letting me know!

This weekend kicks off our Spring Break and also ends our basketball season!  After the last game, I’ll spend the rest of the weekend getting us ready to go to Colorado for a ski trip!

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,

Doesn’t it feel great to finally be in February?! I don’t know why January felt like the longest month ever!  Maybe because our Christmas break was so long and didn’t end until way into January!  But, February is always a fun and festive month because we celebrate Jordan’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, and my own birthday!  Lots going on in that 3rd and 4th week! This weekend is a kiddo basketball game and how could I almost forget, The Superbowl!!  We’re going to my friend Ali-Shaun’s house for a get together and don’t be surprised if she shows up again here soon!

Hello friends and happy Friday!  A bunch of mom friends from my son’s school are having a spa day today and I’m so looking forward to it! I think the last massage I got was when Courtney visited last Spring, but it’s a great way to relax and destress.  I bet most of us don’t get regular massages, but they are such a treat!  I’m gonna make sure to workout early Friday morning so I feel like I’ve really earned that massage! 😉

Today is the first Dressing Room post of the year and it’s a good one!

Hi friends! Happy almost Christmas to you!  I wish you so much love and peace and joy and hope it’s a day filled with all your very favorite people! We’ll be spending the day at home with all of our family coming over for a big dinner and gift exchange!  I can’t wait to give my nieces and nephews their gifts!

Today is the last Dressing Room post of the year! I was going to focus on NYE dresses, but I only found a couple I liked (see more here), but of course,

You guys!  Last night was just what the doctor ordered! We had the best time at our girlfriends Favorite Things party!  It was one of those nights where you laughed til your cheeks hurt and everyone had an awesome time.  I’m completely amazed that Jordan slept through all of our hootin’ and hollarin’ but thank God she did!  Then, just when the party was wrapping up, we walked outside to see it snowing in Houston!  It never snows here so of course we were all freaking out as if we’d never seen snow in our lives!  I’m working on a round-up post for you so I can show you what everyone wore (cutest pjs),

Hello friends! Did you have a great weekend?  With Thanksgiving, it felt like Sunday was an extra day of weekend, and I’m all about that!  I needed that day to catch up on life- all the laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, etc.  And I even made it to the gym on Saturday, and it felt good to get moving after eating so much!  Any of you feeling the same way??

Although I almost wanted to throw our Christmas tree out the front door because it had so many burned out lights and lost a ton of the flock that I added to it last year,

We are so giddy heading into the weekend as 2017 World Series Champions!  We are thrilled for our Houston Astros and our city is on fire with excitement!  It’s the franchise’s first ever World Series Championship, so it’s a huge deal here! Schools and companies are closing early tomorrow so that we can all enjoy the Astros parade through downtown!  James plays little league baseball now and so it’s especially fun for him and his friends.  They are huge fans!  Jose Altuve is their hero!

Our city really needed this win and our Astros played their hearts out to give it to them.

Hi friends, hoo-ray for Friday!!  Are you looking forward to it as much as I am?!  With those couple recent trips, I feel like I need a weekend to just sit and do nothing!  I love getting to do those fun things, but in my old age, it seems like takes me longer to recuperate.  Do you feel that way too? 

But there’s already something super fun and exciting on the horizon that I couldn’t wait to share with you! And the great thing is- you’re invited to a front row seat!  After bearing with me and allll the scaredy-cat nerves I had before speaking at the intimate mom’s group,
