So I know many of you came here today for a Bachelor in Paradise recap,
but that will be tomorrow.
You see, I feel like half of Nordstrom went on SUPER SALE yesterday, and my first commitment is always to bring you girls the deals.
So, today the deals.
Tomorrow, the laughs!
What can I say...
Mama loves a good sale.

There are some new things on sale that you haven't seen on the blog yet, but there are also other items that I have talked about previously (and LOVE!).  And now they are on SUPER sale!
So, we are going to look at some new stuff first.
I put some of it on facebook yesterday, but it hasn't appeared on the blog until now.

THIS blouse.
This blouse is 65% OFF!
It was regularly $68, and now it's ONLY $23.90!  TWENTY THREE DOLLARS!
smocked peasant blouse / cognac flats / similar white ankle jeans / earrings / necklace not yet available*
*The necklace is not yet available online.....but it will launch in a week or two, and when it does, I will let you know immediately.  Because it's AWESOME.
The website says the blouse above (also seen below on the left) is red, but when trying it on, I thought it leaned more orange.  And here's the same blouse in the ivory and black diamond pattern on the right.  It would look great with black dress pants.
They are very sheer, so even I'm not wearing a cami with them here, you would definitely need to.
And you can find my favorite $12 camis HERE.
  I wear mediums in these camis, so I would suggest sizing up.  Again, I'm wearing a small in the blouse.  The blouse comes in 7 different colors and patterns, and I might have ordered the red and grey paisley to go with my grey jeans.  Okay, I did.  BECAUSE TWENTY THREE DOLLARS.

 Here's another color combo of one of my favorite tops.
Several to choose from, so click HERE and see what's left in your size.
For size reference, this one is a small.
Are you excited about the necklace yet?  You should be.
I hope it launches sometime in the next 2 weeks. and I will be sure to let you know when it does!
 THIS light wash denim jacket from Halogen is ON SALE too....for 55% OFF,
which makes it $29.90!
It's not as stretchy and soft as our much loved Kut from the Kloth jackets, but it's still really cute!
 jacket / LOFT swing tee (buy one get one 50% OFF right now)necklace cognac flats similar white ankle jeans / earrings 
For size reference, I'm wearing a regular small in the jacket
And do you see the darling necklace peeking out in this pic?  It's not on sale, but it's only $26!
It will look great with plain ol' tees, but it will also look so cute peeking out underneath chambray and flannel button ups this fall!
And do you remember this necklace when I highlighted these sweet necklaces back around Mother's Day?
I ordered a "C" for Carter and Chris and an "S" for Sheaffer and Scout!
I covered our entire little family with 2 initials.
When I received them, I took one of the discs off of it's chain, and I put them both on one chain.
And I love it.
I love how the discs mix metals (takes the guess work out of it for those if you that are nervous about mixing) and the raised design is so eye catching.
Click HERE for the initial necklaces.
At 40% OFF they are $23.40!!!!!
If you have more than 1 kiddo, you can get each of their first initials.
Same for this isn't going to work if grandma has 9 grandchildren, but if she has 3.....then this would work for her too!  :) 
My floral blouse is from LOFT last year (sorry!) and I'm wearing my favorite BP cami found HERE.

This next outfit has the grey skinny jeans that are now 50% OFF (going fast).
layered sweater / short white necklacecircle hoop earrings/
grey stretch skinny jeans / grey buckle booties 
For size reference, I'm wearing a small in the sweater.  It also comes in a great burgundy and navy, and I love all 3 colors!  You do have to wear a cami under this sweater because the back is the pleated sheer material.  I suggest sizing down 1 size in the jeans (I'm wearing a 26).

Here's a close up of the jeans.  Sizes going fast.
I'm 5'4", and I have them cuffed up under in these pics because they are a couple of inches too long.  I'm going to get them hemmed, but that's good news for you taller girls!

grey stretch skinny jeans

This blouse is similar to the first one I featured today, but it's a different label and comes in different color combos.
For size reference, I'm wearing a small in the blouse, so I would say it's true to size. And just like the first blouse, you need to wear a cami.

 This next shirt was a HUGE surprise for me.  My last special mama winner (Hi Penny!) found it on our shopping spree.  When she first showed it to me, I thought it was a little too
 Brawny paper towel guy.
When she tried it on, I died.
I know.
I died.
Penny died.
We all died.
AND NOW IT'S 50% OFF!!!!!
flannel shirt WITH POCKETS 50% OFF
jeans 40% OFF NOW !!!!
Penny absolutely LOVED these jeans, so you might want to check them out!  They are Kut from the Kloth boyfriend jeans, and Penny felt great (and looked AWESOME!) in them!
And THIS leopard coat was a favorite find during the sale.
I'm wearing an x-small, so I would definitely suggest sizing down. 
Click HERE for the coat (now 25% OFF!) Click HERE for my favorite earrings.
AND there's actually LOTS more ON SALE!
Here's just some of it:

Check out all the Hanky Panky on sale (most 40% OFF) HERE.  My favorites are the regular rise and the mid rise.

Lots of Zella live in leggings are on sale HERE.
I have THESE and THESE and love them both.  I wear a small in all live in leggings.

There are 19 Michael Kors bags that are 40-50% OFF HERE!  
Lots of Kate Spade bags in the sale HERE.
And there are a lot of great Rebecca Minkoff bags in the sale HERE!  All between 40-50% OFF!

Check out the Kate Spade initial bracelets HERE and a darling green KS watch HERE that's 50% OFF (making it UNDER $100!) and a light pink quilted watch HERE that is 40% OFF.
All MK watches in the sale HERE (24 to choose from)!

All Kut from the Kloth jeans on sale HERE.
All Vigoss jeans on sale HERE.
All DESIGNER jeans on sale HERE.

And last, but certainly not least, the CASLON TUNICS that we all love with our HUE ULTRA WIDE WAISTBAND MUST HAVE LEGGINGS are now on sale!  
The tunics are 65% OFF...
making them $23.90.
Depending on what kind of fit you want will depend on what size you get.
If you want to wear with jeans, I would size down one size.
If you want to wear with leggings, then get your regular size.
Click HERE for the tunic.

I hope the sale round up was helpful!
See you back here tomorrow for my Bachelor In Paradise Recap!

A Tee and Jeans

Sometimes I like to really plan an outfit (mix up colors, patterns, and layers) because it's fun and often unexpected!
But some days I like to just throw things on (and hopefully still look cute) without
 much thought at all.
On one of those days, I often reach for a simple tee and jeans.
 It's such an easy look...but it doesn't have to look can still be cute!
And there is nothing easier to reach for than a black tee.  It's a no-brainer.
Here are some black tee choices that are currently available since the black tee I'm wearing in today's post is sold out.  For some reason, the black versions aren't linking up, but if you click on the style you are interested in, they are all available in black!

First up, I paired my black tee with jeans, gold jewelry, and cognac flats.
No thought required, but still cute!

similar tee / exact jeans back in stock! /
necklace / earrings / cognac flats
Remember to size down in the jeans.  I'm wearing a 26.
And by the way, I've decided to declare these my pajama jeans...because they are just that comfy.
After I tried these flats on in store a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't get them out of my head.  And since I didn't own a pair of cognac flats (and these are the perfect color with a fun pointy toe) I felt the purchase was justified.
Great news is they were affordable at $49.95.
Click HERE for the flats.  They are true to size.

And then, I mixed the tee and jeans combo up the next day.
I have NO SHAME.  If something I wore the day before isn't dirty, I might probably will wear it again the next day.  All in the name of reducing laundry, right ladies?

I just changed out the cognac flats for my new converse (OBSESSED), and threw on my signature necklace.  If you are new to the blog, this isn't just a name necklace, it's my actual signature!  I got it almost 2 years ago, and I love it just as much now as I did when I first got it.
You send in your actual signature and BaubleBar laser cuts the necklace for you!  So cool!
Mine is the antique gold (it's acrylic).

necklace / earrings / converse / bag (currently only available in black)
 I am straight up obsessed with my new Converse.
I love the color, I love that they are slip on (no tie), and I love the casual and laid back look they give an outfit!  I sized down 1/2 a size.  In regular lace up converse I size down a whole size...but I just sized down a 1/2 size in these.  Aren't they cute?

And I thought you might want a close up of my signature necklace!  Again, mine is antique gold.
Here's another idea I have for the necklace....what if you had your hubby, or maybe one of your kids writes something like "love" or "family" or "blessed".  How cool would that be to wear a sweet word in a loved ones handwriting?!?

And just because, I found this pic on my phone that I'd never shown you guys....

And I know you are going to love the tee....more on the tee in a sec!

My camo tee is from Multiplicitees.

The shirt I have on above (I'm wearing a medium for a roomy fit!) is just available until tomorrow -Tuesday, Sept. 1st. You can choose from three colors (camo, cream, red) and several hashtags: #boymom, #girlmom #twinmom #tripletmom

Thank you Ann Marie and all the other Multiplicitee girls for giving me my cute tee!

And if you didn't notice in the pic above, check out my new earrings!
Yep!  There is now a crystal stud in our favorite $8 earrings!

So...go forth y'all and wear a simple tee with jeans...and look dang cute doing it!
See y'all back here on Wednesday!

Friday Favorites!

It's FRIDAY, and you know what that means!
I'm linking up today with my friends AndreaErika and Narci for Friday Favorites!


So here are my FAVORITES right now...
This guy is definitely a FAVORITE! ;)
I was so proud of him his first day of 1st Grade.  He's had a great first week, he loves his teacher,  and I know we are going to have a wonderful year!

tee HERE / shorts sold out /Carter's Sperry's HERE (20% OFF right now!)
And you can find big kid sizes of Carter's Sperry's HERE.
If you've seen me highlight them before, then you remember that they don't really tie.  They actually velcro and the ties are fake.

We had to hop in a couple of pics with him as well!
If you'll notice, he had a bit of a costume change and ended up putting on THESE shoes.
While getting dressed the first morning of school, I randomly threw together my olive green tee with one of my A.C. necklaces....and now it's a FAVORITE combo!  I love the colors together!
And now that I know the turquoise and pink combo looks so good with green, I know I'll be pairing it with my military jacket all fall long!
similar olive tee HERE (I ordered the deep red for myself!) and a plus size option HERE/
 cami HERE in tan doeskin (I'm wearing a medium.) / necklace HERE
similar white jeans HERE / similar sandals HERE  
(I plan on wearing this exact outfit again soon with MY NEW COGNAC FLATS (true to size).  Just like that, switching out the sandals for flats will make the outfit ready for fall!  THESE flats would also be an excellent and SUPER COMFY option with TONS of EXCELLENT reviews.)
Get The Look For Yourself by clicking on the pics you are interested in below.
The little thumbnail pics are giving me trouble, so the right color might not appear, but it will be a choice after you click on the pic!

That afternoon when I went to pick him up from school, the hair was in a pony, my lipstick had worn off, and I had on MY NEW SHADES that arrived that afternoon!!!
sunglasses c/o Panda
They are super light weight and I love the shape of them.
And they are handcrafted from sustainably sourced bamboo! 
And I was thrilled to read about their Gift of Vision program!

THIS shirt is a FAVORITE for sure.
I love this color combo and pattern, but there are lots more options as well (and I
 really love the teal pattern too).
my exact shirt HERE and the plus size version (same pattern and colors!) HERE
If you follow me on facebook, then you saw the news last night...
My FAVORITE COGNAC BAG  (Only $69.95!) is now BACK IN STOCK!
I know that many of you were upset when it sold out, so hurry!
It's backordered and set to ship on September 17th, but that's only a couple of weeks away!
Click HERE and check out the cute lining!  I love a fun lining in a bag!
 I also love the fact that it can be worn as a cross body or you can shorten the strap and just wear it on one shoulder.  And it's light!  (I have a Rebecca Minkoff cross body hat I love the look of, but it's heavy before I even put anything in it.  This one is super light!)
The bag sold out AGAIN on facebook last night!  Dangit!
ARE 40% OFF NOW!!!!!
BLOUSE / JEANS (so cute AND ON SALE!) / earrings necklacenude patent flats / watch
These jeans are from the Ladies department, not the Juniors department, and they are now UNDER $50!
THESE are the jeans.  So cute!!!!
And such a fantastic deal at $44.40!  There are 7 reviews, and 6 of them are 5 STAR!!!!  (The remaining one is 4 STAR, so everybody that has these jeans love them!)
Roll Cuff Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans (Mustard) (Nordstrom Exclusive)

BaubleBar contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked me if there was anything I was interested in on their site!  I immediately picked this wooden necklace.  They are now sold out at BaubleBar, but good news, they are still available at Nordstrom.
I paired it with a summer look here, but I can't wait to wear it with more fall-ish items.
This WOODEN BIB NECKLACE c/o BaubleBar is a new FAVORITE necklace of mine!
necklace HERE / earrings HERE / jacket sold out / dress several years old
And because I now am FULLY ON THE FLARE TRAIN (flares are definitely a NEW FAVORITE), click HERE for the ones I just got for my upcoming LOFT post!  I know many of you have been asking for jeans that aren't junior's sizing, and these are a great option!
So once I realized I was on the flare train (#choochoo), I realized I needed to get a pair of transition shoes to wear with them.  I have tall wedges I wear with them now, but I needed a shoe that was a bit more fall-ish. I scoured Nordstrom and found several good options.
Which ones are your favorite?
a. zippered leather wedge HERE  / b.  dv suede wedge HERE
c and d. BP slingback peep toe wedge HERE / e. lucky buckle bootie HERE / 

I love a scarf, especially in the fall.  Fall scarves are definitely a FAVORITE.  I think a scarf adds great color and texture to an outfit, and you know I love to add interest with layers.
I think these two are both awesome!!!
