{old navy try-on}

SHOP: Cardigan | Denim (manic monday) | Flats (on sale) | Tote | Sunglasses

Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life, then realize you don’t have a glass of wine in your hand?

That’s how I feel when I look at this photo. I never know what to do with my hands. I’m most relaxed and myself when I’ve got a death grip on a glass of Bogle chardonnay! Ha! Just keepin it really real!

You guys – Old Navy is having a KILLER sale right now. 40% off with NO EXCLUSIONS! This is big! Really, big. Great time to grab some Christmas gifts, if you’re into buying things for others. Christmas shopping for me looks like – one for you, and one for me. FML!

I’m obsessed with the cardigan as a top trend. This one is perfect too. Comes in a shit ton of color options and is currently $24! I sized down to a small and is just the right length for a front tuck.

{4 ways to wear a utility jacket}

SHOP: Utility Jacket | Cami (similar) | Levi’s (manic monday) | Heels | Sunglasses | Necklace

Hi friends. Doing something a little different today. Do we call it a styling session? I’m not really sure? Ha! I’ve been trying to get this post up since September and somehow just haven’t gotten around to to. Maybe because it’s a little out of my comfort level? Who knows, but I decided today was the day! So here we go…..

I’ve deemed the utility jacket to be a closet staple. It’s a piece that can be worn so many ways. I hope this post inspires you to shop your closet and find ways to style your favorite jacket. Since its cold AF and jackets are all of the sudden very necessary.

{weekend notes}

I left my heart in San Francisco 🎶
A day in the Bay with my Baes ❤️

Ocean Beach. Sutro Baths. Union Square. Chinatown and the Marina. We hit all our favorite spots in the city. It was a fun weekend.

Somehow I woke up pumped to start the week. Here’s to making a new routine.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Finalize Holiday Cards (last year I didn’t send any out)
  • Figure out the new Weight Watchers plans
  • Try a new air fryer recipe
  • Deck the halls
  • Have Bay Bake something fun + festive for the blog
  • Pick up everything for my Christmas Table (velvet ribbon is hard to find)
  • Grab a coffee and walk the arboretum on a lunch break
  • Delete old photos from my phone
  • Find a fun Christmas pillow for my bed (I’m decorating my room too…lol)

This week on the blog: I’ll be sharing some sale finds. Dedicating a whole post to Bay’s new GreeLight debit card, because it’s that good. I have an Old Navy Try-On, because I keep popping in and finding new + cute things. I have a green jacket styled 4 ways that will be coming too!

Highlights from the weekend…..

SHOP: Top (30% off) | Denim (25% off) | Sunglasses ($11) | Necklace

Happy FRIDAY!! Cheers to the weekend! Cheers to you! We fucking made it! Barely…ha!

Weekend plans: Pizza + Wine tonight, because what else would one do on a Friday? Sleep in. Watch Jenny get hitched. Finish decorating our front porch. And probably go to be at 8pm. What’s on your weekend agenda?

For those asking:

Starbucks Cinderella Latte verdict…..

Not absolutely disgusting. Better than a PSL for sure. This secret menu item went viral this week, so obvi I had to try it out.

To order: ask for a PSL (hot, iced or blended) swap out half of the pumpkin spice pumps for white mocha ☕️

Today on the blog I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving from Old Navy. Have you been in there lately? I can’t leave without buying something

Everything is 30% off. NO code needed. I swear online prices are wayyy better than in-store. So, I always place my order for in-store pick up, to get the sale prices. And because, I’m cheap AF and don’t want to pay for shipping that take 15 days. lol.

{white bean caprese salad}

Today was the day. The first day of school! The day some of us (myself) have been secretly praying for…lol! And some dreading. I decided next year we need to have a Woo-Hoo + Boo-Hoo party after drop off. Where we can celebrate or be bummed our kiddos are back in school.

You know, just at a bar preferably. Before everyone gets on with their day.

Bay’s last day first day at Lee Middle School. I was reminded of it, bright and early this morning. Holy shit!

Yes – I let her keep the baby blue acrylic nails. Even though I cringe every time I look at her hands. On one condition – she learns how to spell “remember” Ha!

We always take photos the night before. #momhack. Such a time saver in the morning on the first day! It’s almost like a trial run. What to wear. Does it need ironing. What hairdo. Makeup. All the things. It truly makes the morning of such a breeze.

I, myself, spent about 90% of my day scrolling though all the 1st day photos. I cannot believe how big everyone’s kids are. How grown and mature they all look. Including my girlfriends kids. We’ve had this tradition since pre-school. My girlfriend Sara and I met one year at Raley’s. Mainly because it’s always empty. Each year the group and photo have grown larger + larger. Makes my heart so happy! Thanks for organizing this year Alex! Love to see everyone dressed in their best ready to take on a new school year.

{keepin it real}

THE Best Tank Top ($12.99) | Denim | Sandals (grey dove)

Today, I’m having a day!

Not a good one!!

And I decided that I’m going to keep it really real over here…..

I have a gnarly zit on my chin. And I’m not messing around when I say it’s the size of Africa! There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world to cover this thing. About to name the son of a bitch. Any suggestions? Maybe Bertha? Or Bernard? Something that starts with a B, preferably.

I went to Weight Watchers this morning….and

{back to school}

Tee | Shorts | Vans (BOGO 1/2 off) | No-Show Socks | Backpack

I can hardly believe school starts in TWENTY TWO days! Where did summer go?

As much as I LOVE summer. I have to admit, I’m ready for our regular routine. You know – the one where nobody wants to get out of bed. Then we’re both up fighting over the bathroom. Bumping into each other to brush out teeth. And typically running late. Ha! Don’t you miss that too?

Bailey has opted out of taking zero period this year, so we’ve got some logistics to still work out. The 7:15 am out the door was actually kinda nice last year.

But, what we do have figured out is ALL THE THINGS back to school gear-wise. From backpacks to teen approved lunchboxes. Vans, ONLY vans. Cute tops + accessories that you “NEED”

With the help of my very own 12 year old, we’ve rounded up her top picks for back to school.
