Happy Hump Day!  AKA, drink a bottle of wine day to celebrate we’re 1/2 way there day!  Ha!  You guys, we had our challenge this morning at Kaia.  You can read more about it here: {kaia brik goals}  Running is so not my jam, but damn I feel good (and hangry) when it’s done.  If you could have only heard all the voices in my head.  “Fake and injury and walk” or “Don’t walk, you’ll never be able to get back up to speed” or “wonder if anyone would notice if I ran to my car and went home?”  That’s the shit I had to deal with, not once, but three separate times this morning.  In good news, I shaved off over 1 minute from week #1 and I didn’t die!  Ha!

Now I’m, about to get real long winded….I apologize in advance for my random thoughts today……

So I started to write a post on this outfit the other day.  I have the tendency to listen/half-ass watch Instagram stories in the background.  So bad, I know.  Anyway, I was listening to a blogger do an unboxing.  Which, for the record, I think is tacky AF.

I guess I shouldn’t say tacky, because I’ll probably do one next week to stay relevant…lol. But, I watch them every.single.time.  Why?  Do your kids watch the weird ass grown adults on YouTube that unbox American Girl Dolls and toys?  Just fucking weird.

Anyway, she made the comment that ALL her packages were in their home office…to keep them out-of-the-way or something like that.  What really got my attention, was she hadn’t opened a single package in TWO whole weeks?  That’s 14 fucking days!  WTF?  Maybe that’s what happens when you get to be a BIG DEAL?  IDK!

I’m not gonna lie…That’s not how I roll over here.  Most of my online shopping carts at J.Crew + Nordstrom + Target + Madewell are maxed out with hundreds of dollars of clothes.  Technically, I’m not going to buy 90% of them.  But, I like to keep them safe.  Right where I can see them and stalk them.  Then they go out of stock and I kick myself for not pulling the trigger.  Or I decide they aren’t all that cute anymore after looking at them for so damn long.  Then every once in a while, that shit goes on sale and I hit “place order”.

In my head, I already have the outfit planned.  Where I’ll be wearing it.  Who will be there.  Ha.  I’m just keeping it really real.  But, that’s not where it ends.  I then proceed to track my orders like a psycho.  I can pretty much tell you where each of them are in the US at any given time…lol.  Maybe not any given time, but I have an idea.  I get notification emails and shit.  I’m waiting very impatiently.  Like, I wanted that J.Crew top 2 days ago.

Then when I finally get that “Delivered” email….it kills me to not hop in my car and go grab it off my front porch.  Open it up within seconds.  Half the time I completely destroy the box trying to get to the goods.  Then I try it on instantly.  I gotta make sure it’s as good as I’d hoped and dreamed about…Ha!

So, when these bloggers talk about storing their orders/packages for TWO whole weeks, I just don’t get it.  They clearly don’t love their online purchases as much as I do, right?  Ha!

End of rant!

Without further ado, here is one of the many outfits I stalked + waited for 🙂

Not the whole outfit, the top + the earrings.  Then shredded the box like a little kid on Christmas.

Drapey tie-front top in island floral ($49.99) – I grabbed this top on one of my Saturday morning hauls.  It was 50% off making it $25.  I hit purchase before I could even thing twice.  It’s floral.  Drapey (wear it on Taco Tuesday to hide that extra taco…just saying) Since, I’ve worn it twice.  Tucking in a pair of high-waisted denim.  And like this, front tucked in a pair of white denim.

Mid Rise True Skinny Curvy Jeans – Currently on the hunt for this years perfect white denim.  GAP True Skinnies used to be my go-to, but I’m a sucker for J.Crew + Madewell denim now.  So pricey, but you really can’t beat the fit.  Holla at me if you have a pair you’re in love with!

Universal Thread Kerrigan Slide Sandal ($12.99) – Pretty sure we’ve chatted about these slides already?  That price tag though.  Debating on grabbing another pair in cognac before they are whipped off the shelves.  Effortless slide that goes with everything.

Tassel and bead earrings ($18) – I’ve kinda got a thing for statement earrings.  Especially with tassels.  Raise your hand if you’ve jumped on the statement earring bandwagon too!  Super lightweight and comfy.  They come in 5 color options.  And the ball and tassel are both removable.  Like last weekend, I wore these earrings without the ball, just the tassel.  I like that they can be switched up to almost look like a different earring.  They are currently marked down 25%.  Use code: ADDTOBAG get 25% off all full-priced items! 

Since I’ve gathered a few faves, I’m thinking about writing a post all about it.

Have a great hump day!  I’m finishing up a fun craft that  I’ve been working on today.  I can’t wait to share with you tomorrow 🙂
