How is summer almost over? My little people start school next week and part of me does not want them to go back, but we are all also craving a schedule and some order in our lives, haha! As you can tell we have had a busy summer and my Instagram round ups have been put on the back burner… life happens. Here are a few of my Instagram pics from through out the summer and this past week.
Plus, I rounded up all the best sales that are going on this weekend!I hope you all have a great weekend with your people!! I’m going to try and soak up these last few days with all my people at home.
So I’m finally getting around to sharing our family pics we took before we left Cali . I’ve wanted to take family pictures at the beach for years and we could never make it work. We had a date planned and one of the kids got super sick. So we drove all the way back home. We finally got them done just a week before we officially moved out of the state. My dear friend Corissa took these amazing photos and I will forever be grateful to have these amazing keepsakes!
Today is my birthday and I’m turning 34!! It feels really weird to say I’m this old, but then again I still feel super young!! haha. Anyone else feel like this?! I don’t stress about getting older, but I totally remember being 18 and all my co-workers turning 34 – so it’s just crazy to me.
I thought it would be fun to answer 34 of your most asked questions about myself + our family. Some are pretty personal — so I’m hoping by the end you’ll feel like you know me and my family a little bit better!!
How is it that summer is almost over?! It always seems to fly by, but with our move and allll our craziness we have going on, I feel like this year flew by even faster! As much as I hate to see it end, I am a lover of structure and routine, and I’m ready to get us back on somewhat of a schedule again! But I will miss the little people being around all day!!
When it comes to back to school shopping, the kids all time favorite thing to pick out is by far their backpacks + shoes! Our one stop shop for shoes for the whole fam is always Rack Room Shoes! We worked with them last year and their stuff is amazing, so we were thrilled to see they carry backpacks now too!
I’m so excited for the fall season to come since we haven’t lived where there’s a real “fall” for over 5 years!! Seriously – California fall/winters do not exist. Back in Kentucky fall was my favorite season of the year + I can’t wait to finally experience it up here in northern Utah!
On that note, I love how just one piece (a coat or jacket for this instant) can completely change your entire look and take your daily uniform and make it not seem so plain.
If I could wear a white top or tee + jeans everyday I’d seriously do it!! Well I know I can, but lets be real, people would think it was a little odd, haha! We all know a good white tee and those great jeans that fit you so well are a must in everyone’s closet. I’ve never had a hard time finding a basic white tee, but when it comes to a button up – that’s another story. I either feel like they are too dressy to pull off for every day with my people, or they are too restrictive and form fitting that I can’t move. I saw this top on a girl at the store and knew immediately that this was the top I had been looking for for the past few years!!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale end in just TWO days!! Today I’m sharing 10 of the most basic items from the SALE. Most of these items are must-haves/staples in everyones closet!! All are still in stock and available at great prices!! Really these are my go-to’s just about everyday!!
If you want you can see a bunch of my favorite pieces from the sale HERE along with all my dressing room finds + sizing details HERE!! Hope you all have a great weekend with your people!!
Cardigans are the perfect fall staple + they’re the best item to pull your entire outfit together. My favorite is to pair a cardigan with a basic all black outfit to just add that little extra touch. I’m in love with this long ribbed cardigan I snagged from the Nordstrom Saleand also this lightweight cardigan for the Spring and Summer. I feel like you can never have too many cardigans – am I right?! So today I rounded up the best cardigans + jackets from the from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for you all below!
You always want a few statement items in your closet — like a polka dot top for example, haha! Or how adding a brightly colored or different print clutch can take a plain simple outfit to the next level and pull it all together. Statement items are so fun and can change the look of any outfit. I’ve rounded up a bunch of the best statement items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale below!
Having a few great tops that pop with your everyday jeans can make putting together your outfits that much easier. Isn’t it true we all have a few favorite tops (besides our basic tee) that we reach for over and over again? A great classic button up is one of those tops for me. I feel like you can do so much with it – wear it tucked in, untucked, with a skirt, around your waist, tie it in a knot and so on. So today I rounded up 6 of my favorite tops I always reach for over and over.
