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.

Style a Friend | Black Friday Edition

Hello friend and Happy Thanksgiving! How has your day been?  Even though this has been one heck of a year, I’m feeling grateful as ever for all of the blessings in my life.  Today was spent with some of my favorite girls- my daughter, Jordan, my Mom, and my dear friend Trisa.  We had a lovely, very chill day, lounging, eating, drinking, and eating some more.  I’m stuffed!

Before we jump into today’s post and all the Black Friday sales, I wanted to offer a sincere THANK YOU to all of you.  Many of you have been with me for years and years,

Happy Labor Day friends!  Are you doing anything fun today?  We’re having family over for a backyard barbeque and I’m pumped!  If there’s one way to get projects and cleaning done around the house, it’s to host a party!

I finally finished up some little backyard projects and even cleaned out the garage- including wiping down all those ride on toys, bikes, and dusty things that live outside!  I’m so sore!  

And last night, James and I had a special movie date.  I don’t get as much one-on-one time with him as I’d like,

Good morning friends! Well, it didn’t take long – both of my kids woke up yesterday saying they didn’t want to go to school.  Jordan came home without napping and was in total beastmode!  So super grumpy, but we had an early dinner and early to bed, so hopefully today is better!

I’m so glad you liked Friday’s Amazon post and yesterday’s LOFT post– both try-ons are saved to my Story Highlights.  I think it helps to see things live and in action and videos are always more personal.

Dressing Room | LOFT – HUGE FLASH SALE

Good morning Monday!  How was your weekend?!  On Friday, I felt like I had been hit by a truck with how exhausted I was with the back-to-school logistics and emotions.  It was a lot and only half a week!

Jordan might have gotten the ‘first time at school bug’ because she’s been all stuffed up and runny nose this weekend.  It hasn’t dampened her spirits though, she’s still as fun and feisty as ever!

And now it’s week two of school – a full week, so we’ll see how this goes.  Luckily, I spent Sunday evening getting everything prepped and ready,

Transition to Fall Target Haul (40 OUTFITS)

Hello friends and cheers to the weekend!  Do you have any fun plans?  The kids and I are going to a back-to-school game night at Marianna’s house and I’m really looking forward to it!  We’re told to bring $6 and winner takes all at the end of the night (with kids eligible to win too).  With this competitive bunch, I hope we all make it out alive! 😉

If you missed it this week, I shared my Magnolia Market trip recap, the Best Sales, and on Stories I did a LOFT try-on,

Hello and Happy Friday!  I’m coming to you today from Chi-town and it’s absolutely glorious here! The weather couldn’t be better and I’m with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Trisa.  We met over 20 years ago #wowza when we went to the University of Houston and sat in the same Persuasion class.  We’ve been thick as thieves ever since!

I’ll be sure to share our trip details when I get back, in the meantime, if you missed it on the blog this week, I shared a Mid-Year Life Reset and absolutely loved your positive response to it;

Good morning friends!  Yesterday was such a rough start for me after eating a whole pint of ice cream, drinking coffee too late, and then not being able to sleep until 3am!  Those days are hard, but I did it to myself!  Thankfully, I got good sleep last night and I’m glad because this afternoon I leave on a girl’s trip to San Antonio to celebrate our friend’s birthday.  Our plans include a winery tour, dinner on the Riverwalk and hopefully some pool time at the hotel.

Happy Friday friends! Unlike last weekend, there’s nothing on the agenda this Saturday and Sunday, so hopefully it’s just pool and chill time.  It’s been so dang hot here- 110 heat index yesterday!  Because of that, we’ve been spending lots of time inside in the A/C, with one evening swim this week.  You know it’s bad when it’s even too hot to go swimming!

Next week I’ll be sharing everything we’ve been doing with the kids and I’d love to hear how YOU keep your kids occupied during the summer.  Let me know in the comments and I’ll add your suggestions to my post!

Hello and Happy Friday friends!  I hope y’all had a great week.   I’m so looking forward to this weekend.  I need a couple days to catch up on sleep and do nothing!   In the last week, I’ve been to two orthodontists visits for my son and one doctor appointment for my daughter.  Not to mention what feels like 30 trips to Walgreens.  One of which included checking out with medicine for Jordan only to realize I left my wallet at home!  😉

Aside from running kids to doctor appointments, this week was a fun one on the blog starting with my tips for getting in shape when your schedule is jam packed,

Hi friends! I hope your weeks is going really well.  We’ve been having terrible thunderstorms, but thankfully everyone is safe and sound.

Y’all have been asking to see Ali-Shaun back here for a new Style A Friend post, and I’m thrilled to get her in here today, even if it’s just for a few things! If you don’t know Ali-Shaun, she is one of my closest friends and we met when our sons started Pre-K3 together 6 years ago.  We’ve gotten even closer over the years and I’m so blessed to have her in my life.

Good morning Friday!  Did you see the sneak peek of Jordan’s PINK room on Stories yesterday?!  Her reaction made me laugh so hard.  I’ve literally rewatched that video 100 times!!  These kids are too much!

Today I have a brand new Spring inspired Dressing Room post for ya!  I found tons of great tops in beautiful colors and then created lots of outfits.  They’re organized by bottoms (White Pants, White Jeans, Floral Skirt, Black Jeans, Distressed Jeans, Ripped Knee Jeans 10% off ).

Good morning friends!  I hope you’re having a great week!  I think we’re back to normal after Spring Break and finally adjusted to the time change.  It takes a while to get used to that, right?!

DRESSING ROOM | SWIMSUIT EDITION

It’s that time of year again!  For the past few years, every March I’ve done a  swimsuit post and they are always among my most popular posts of the year.  I think it’s because no one really ‘enjoys’ swimsuit shopping, but we like to see the cute new styles and hear about the fit and quality from someone willing to do the ‘dirty work’!

Good morning Monday! It’s James’ birthday today and I spent my morning time reflecting on what a gift God gave me when he made me his mom. ♥  I can honestly say James has been such a joy and delight since the day he was born.  Even when I was pregnant with him, I remember the feeling of enjoying his company and I still feel that way.  He’s the best big brother and so kind and thoughtful and smart.  He’s nine years old today and I’m just so very proud of the person he is!

Thank you for indulging me in gushing on him!
