SHOPBOP Event Of The Season | Huge Sale


SHOPBOP event of the season sale picks 2017

Hello, Friends! Today's post is a little impromptu because I realized there's a HUGE sale going on that I need to tell you all about. Every year SHOPBOP has an Event Of The Season Sale where they offer 20% (orders under $500) -25% (orders over $500) off your purchase. The reason it's such a big deal in the fashion world?! Because they sell designer items that seldom if ever, go on sale. For example, my two FAVORITE pairs of tortoise sunglasses above (you've seen them on me a million times) are hardly ever available at a discounted price, and because they are rather pricey, it really makes a dent. You'll also find some adorable travel cases, cozy sweaters, trendy denim, and accessories like this super cute leopard passport holder

You can click the items below to SHOP! Use code EOTS17 at checkout.

Instagram Roundup



Wear It Wednesday is here and today we're talking all things IG. It's been quite a while since I shared an Instagram Roundup and today's pictures are filled with items you can still find in stock, some of which are on sale, and many that are perfect for Fall. If you haven't noticed, I'm obsessed with cute mugs and travel coffee cups lately. The company Sweet Water Decor who sells my pumpkin spice campfire mug below is having a 40% off sale until Saturday so make sure to check it out. All items are linked below the photos! 

Quick update: It's FIVE days until the cross country move! The second car got picked up yesterday and is on its way to VA. We had to send them early so that they will meet us at our destination. Since we are flying and the vehicles are being taken by trailer. We still need to get out plane tickets (haha) but are planning to take the red eye out after all of our household items get picked up by the packing company. Thank goodness we have a team of people coming to do all of that for us - such a huge stress relief!

Hi, Friends! 

I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend. Justin and I actually socialized with friends which we rarely do due to our homebody nature haha. Friday we went out with one of his gym buddies and had a fun dinner and hung out for drinks after. Unfortunately, I watched a lady have her purse stolen right of her chair and sadly, I don't think she was able to have it returned. Word to the wise... watch your stuff! Saturday we went out with some of Justin's coworkers for his goodbye dinner and boy was it yummy! It's been a long time since I've had filet mignon and it was cooked to perfection.

For the next couple weeks, you'll probably be seeing less outfit focused posts (other than a picture collage like today) since we are in the midst of packing to move and taking photos is going to be far and few between. A lot of you asked for a new Q&A though, in addition to all of the makeup products I used in my Instastory tutorial so I'll be including those super soon. Please let me know if there is anything else you would like to see! 

Today's post is an affordable fall outfit full of seasonal staples at great prices! I love the splash of dark purple and all of the gold detailing + a little leopard to pair with. The sweater is probably one of my favorites. I love the cable knit details and the tiered sleeves. The perfect addition to your cool weather wardrobe. Also, how adorable are these brown booties?! They look like they should cost way more than $90 and would look gorgeous with a dress and scarf as well. And you can't go wrong with accessories that won't break the bank, like these $10 hoops and $12 aviators

Have a wonderful start to your week and congrats to @emeliaanne_ for winning the Busy n' Buzzed travel coffee cup giveaway!

Athleisure For The Blush & Coffee Lover


brunette the label coffee now please sweatshirt with lilybod leggings

Hello, Friday and Friends! 

I'm usually rushing towards the end of the week, but knowing we are moving in ten days is making me a little anxious. SUPER excited but I want to make sure we get everything squared away before we leave. The moving surveyor came yesterday and took notes on all of the things we are shipping to the new house. This is sort of random, but he was so nice! You never know who is going to show up at your house from a company you haven't used before, and I was so pleased. It looks like everything should show up right as we are closing which would work out really well. 

Now... how about this athleisure look!

You Had Me At Rose


you had me at rose tee with boyfriend jeans and booties

It's a special Thursday post and I'm sharing an adorable tee from Lexi's Loft - a super cute boutique! I love the saying on the front, "You had me at Rose" and know I'll be wearing it often. It even comes in an adorable tank version too. I've been obsessing over a simple tee with a boyfriend jean (40% off) lately and I'll be living in this cardigan (back in stock) once the weather cools down.

Seventeen Sale Items For Fall


nordstrom sale items

SHOP THE POST

I was putting up a bunch of Nordstrom sale items on Instastory the other day and realized one, there are tons of great sales and two, Triple Points starts today for Reward Members. That means you get 3x the points and that leads to more Nordstrom dollars to spend on fall & winter attire! Yay! 

If you missed out on any of the amazing sale items during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale you should definitely take a look to see if they are part of the current sale - a lot of them are. I still have my NSale purchases up HERE and you can simply click on the item to see if it's marked down again. I'm actually surprised how many of the items on sale are actually cool weather oriented... I thought most would be end of summer shorts and tanks.  

I have no idea why, but I keep thinking today is Friday. Maybe because normally I blog three days a week and this week it's five, so three naturally feels like TGIF lol. Yesterday I kept thinking I heard the garbage man and kept worrying that we didn't take the trash out. But then I realized it was Tuesday and not Thursday... days really run together when you work from home. 

We are T-minus 13 days from our big cross-country move and I can't believe it's happening so soon. They are inspecting the new house today which is great because after that we can finally finish everything up! There was a fourth bedroom that was left unfinished that they are going to complete before we move in and we are super excited about it - it means Justin and I will both have our own offices - woohoo! Not that I mind being next to him, we've just been living in very little space haha.

Have a fabulous day and have fun shopping the sale!

How To Tie A Blanket Scarf


T-minus four days until Fall ya'll! I couldn't be happier because it means cooler weather, hot coffee, cozy sweaters, and blanket scarves. I cannot believe the number of blanket scarves I accumulated last year! I recently went through all of them and only kept a few that I absolutely loved. I'm planning to donate/sell the others and figure I'll end up with just as many at the end of the season again. The one I'm wearing in today's post is from ilymix, a fabulous site with every color scarf you can think of and other cute accessories too.  

Last year my "How To Tie A Blanket Scarf" post was so popular, I thought I'd share an updated version so continue reading to find out how!

Happy Friday, Friends!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. I've been super busy trying to catch up since we were gone on our trip and have been cramming in some additional styling hours as well. I know I've been a little MIA on Instagram but I should be a lot more present this weekend! We missed a weekend of shooting outfits while on the east coast so I can't wait to share new content Saturday. I have lots of new items to post for fall - can you believe the first day of autumn is September 22?! So soon! We also found out we will be moving sooner than expected so we are quickly planning dates for movers, car transportation, plane tickets, hotel reservations, address changes, etc. etc. etc. Phew!

Cozy Cardi

I almost forgot today was Wednesday, you guys. I was a day late with Monday's post and after traveling for nine days and working from home regularly... I get so confused haha! Luckily I remembered as Justin and I were watching American Horror Story last night and whipped some pictures together that I almost forgot I needed to publish - clearly, my memory needs a reboot. Can we talk about how creepy AHS is this season?! I normally don't mind clowns but I might be having nightmares after the first two episodes. Anyone else totally creeped out?

Anxiety 101 | Dealing With Change

Several posts ago I opened up about my lifelong battle with anxiety and how it's affected and challenged me and throughout the years. The response to the post was overwhelming and so positive that I decided to continue the conversation. The Anxiety 101 series will talk about different topics and/or situations where anxiety has affected me, and that I feel others could benefit from discussing. Whether it's relationships, planning, travel, moving, social events, etc. If you have a specific topic surrounding anxiety you'd like me to write about please let me know. I'm totally open!

Do Deodorant Better


This post is sponsored by Mirum, but opinions expressed are my own.

Hello, Friends! 

I have a special beauty post for you today. Talking about a product you use every day and probably don't think much about. I know I haven't in quite a while. Not until recently when I was looking for a travel-friendly deodorant to take on our nine-day east coast excursion. Like many people, I've been using the same deodorant for years and years and I always buy the same one because it's familiar and there's are SO many at the drugstore to choose from. So how do you decide? And why should you choose something new?

Hot Pink Sweater + Leopard Loafers

Happy Hump Day!

If you missed yesterday's post make sure to read it HERE to catch up on some big news. House hunting day one went really well. We only have two days to search so we saw over twenty houses and lots of land - it was quite the marathon! Thank goodness our realtor is super hospitable and really patient. Luckily, Justin and I both easily said "yes" and "no" to the same houses... mostly "no" haha. We did find one that is super promising and are going back to see it today for a second impression and have lots of talking to do about pricing, logistics, etc. to see if it's a good decision. I was going to show some of the homes on Instastory but decided to wait until we find "the one."

Nordstrom Summer Sale


nordstrom summer sale

Hello, Friends!

I'm so sorry there wasn't a post yesterday. I was planning on creating a Labor Day post full of amazing sales and deals but if you've been following me on Instastory you know Justin and I have had a busy couple of days. We flew into Raliegh, North Carolina on Saturday to attend a friend's wedding Sunday. It was absolutely beautiful and she looked like a billion bucks! And the venue was incredibly perfect (called The Bradford if you're getting married in NC). I always plan to work while in the hotel and traveling but it just never happens. We both got super jet lagged Sunday morning and ended up skipping complimentary breakfast to sleep... and we don't skip out on food often hah! So we went to a fabulous brunch spot called Plates in downtown Raleigh which was really delicious. I loved the city so much I look forward to going back to visit with all the new friends we made at the wedding!

Oh, and did I mention we are moving?! Keep reading to find out more...

Making Coffee Cute

Can you believe it's the first day of September?! Where in the world is the year going? I read a post today that said, "Four months until 2018... think about that." Eeek! I'm not ready haha. I have so much to do before October - I can't even think about next year. BUT... I can think about coffee! I've been so excited to share today's post. I recently received this super cute coffee tumbler from Sweet Water Decor and I literally can't get enough! It's the perfect addition to your daily attire and a fun way to make coffee at home... I personally need a reason not to go to Starbucks lol. And why not make your coffee cute?!
