Good Morning friends. It’s kind of hard to believe THIS weekend is Memorial Day.

I’m still on my NO online shopping this week kick. Totally knowing this sale was going to happen.

I had something completely different planned for today, but when I woke up and saw everything that was already SOLD OUT on the NSALE….change of plans. You gotta jump on it Mama’s. If there is something you want. Get it. Get it quick. Remember – Nordstrom has the very best customer service. If you get something and change your mind. Or just don’t like it as much as you initially thought, return it! It’s FREE! Just use the return UPS slip in your package and you’re good to go. But, I promise you one thing…..

ALL the good shit will be gone in the blink of the eye.

And for those of you that give zero fucks for the Nordstrom sale……

a little of this + a little of that //

As I was typing this blog post, I saw in the top corner the number 887. This my friends, is my 887th post! So nuts!

Question: What’s your Taco Bell order? We’ve all got one, right? Mine: beefy 5-layer burrito lots of mild sauce and a crunchy taco. Sometimes I get real wild and ask for chips + guac too!

Hello Monday. Why did you have to arrive so quickly? Had a little too much Sunday Funday so I’m running in slow mo today. But, it was 100% worth it. Today marks day one of the I Heart Macros – Love your body challenge. I got up to “dude where’s my car” ha! So, I improvised and did the at home workout. Which totally kicked my ass. If you’re interested in the challenge, here’s more info: Love your body challenge I’ll be talking more and sharing more about this program as I dive more into it.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Learn all about Macros with I Heart Macros

Blazer | Bodysuit | Shorts | Sandals | Belt | Sunglasses

My belt is as fake as my tan. Ha! This single mama can’t score the real deal. But, why would I? When the $20 knock off is legit? $20 vs. $500! Today I’m sharing some closet staples that you can mix + match though the seasons. Like this blazer I’ve owned FOR-EV-Errrr. Looks great with jeans + dresses + skirts and shorts! Levi’s shorts that I can’t stop rockin. They are the perfect no-ass-showin’ length. The bodysuit, I know, I have showed it to you 3 times now. With a maxi skirt + overalls + and now I add shorts to the list. It comes in black too and I’m gonna go ahead and need it too. The TB Millers that I swear by. Breaking it all down below……

Good morning! And happy Monday. I haven’t typed those words in a while. Truth is, I can’t remember the last time I woke up feelin it on a Monday….till today. I forced myself to the gym at 5am.

Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
  • Make a Spring Self Care list
  • Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
  • Share past Easter posts
  • Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
  • Take outfit photos for the blog
  • Write a post on Easter basket ideas
  • Plan out our day in the City
  • Drink a shit-ton of water
  • Hit my health goals for the week

{gimme all the white tops}

Tomorrow is the first official day of SPRING! I could cry….I’m that excited. Well, except there is rain in the forecast.

We’ve been all over the place today. Bay had an ortho appointment where they scheduled her braces removal. I cannot believe it’s been 2 years. And they also warned me that she’s going to look 10 years older than she already does. Noooo! She’s so excited and I’m so excited for her.

And I FINALLY got my car back today. I was driving a Dodge Journey for the last week. It’s wayyy newer then the ol Pilote. Has all the bells and whistles. And I was so excited to sit in the drivers seat of my 6 year old Honda.

I was also today years old when I learned that you can sign over a check to someone else. Where have I been? You just endorse it and anyone can deposit it? Doesn’t seem legit to me. I guess you learn something new everyday!

I had something else planned for today. Then I got a notification that my tunic, that I fell head over heels for, is on sale. 30% off! And it’s a newer arrival. So, this basically NEVER happens.

Wasn’t it such a perfect weekend? Hey Mother Nature, keep up the good work! We rested. We relaxed. We enjoyed friends + family. And we had corned beef and cabbage. I gotta say, it was a good one.

But, hot damn…I woke up on the wrong side this morning. I’ve been grumpy AF and I can’t blame it on staying up too late or a hangover…Ha! Tomorrow will be a better day though, I’m sure of it!

I loved seeing everyone making xoxostacyb recipes over the weekend. Makes my whole day. And all the Weight Watchers questions and newbies. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions….I got your back. And keep posting food pics. Love all the fun ideas!

{5 items to buy for spring}

Eyelet Top: J.Crew | Levis: Nordstrom // Shopbop | Mules: Nordstrom Rack | Earrings: J.Crew | Bracelet: J.Crew | Bamboo Tote: Amazon

Yesterday I made a BOLD decision. I gave up booze for lent. Alex and I did the math, it’s 43 days. Whoever said lent is 40 days, is a damn lair! Just saying. And I joined Weight Watchers.

So, I apologize in advance for anything I say or do while I’m sober and starving!

In other news, the sun is shining! And my J.Crew Ruffle Neck Eyelet Top is on SALE! So, there are two things to be grateful for today!

See how I changed that to happy shit? I’m working really hard on that. For every negative thought….you have to cancel it out with 2 positive thoughts. Try it, I kinda think it works?

Now let’s talk clothes…….

J.Crew has a promo going on today. 30% off full price styles (aka new arrivals) with code: SUNNY

Eyelet Top: J.Crew | Levis: Nordstrom // Shopbop | Mules: Nordstrom Rack | Earrings: J.Crew | Bracelet: J.Crew | Bamboo Tote: Amazon

So I thought today would be a perfect day to chat about transitioning to Spring.

5 Items to buy for Spring

  1. A classic white top. My faves are my Eyelet Top (from this post) and this Funnel Neck Eyelet. You can never go wrong with a white top + jeans!
  2. Perfectly distressed jeans. See #1 🙂 Levi’s will forever be my go-to
  3. Fun statement earrings. I bought these Fan Earrings in sundrenched peony and I’m obsessed. Super lightweight and FUN!
  4. Bamboo or straw bag. I picked up my dupe to the Cult Gia bag last year on Amazon for $40 and rocked it all summer. ps…your shit wont fall out of the cracks either!
  5. A great pair of natural colored shoes. I cant stop wearing my $40 Block Heel Mules. They are such a staple in my closet. They come in 4 color options and you just cannot beat that price tag!
