Would you rather…..

Give up cocktails or coffee?

Tell me, I wanna know.

For me, this is a VERY hard one. But, I’m going with giving up cocktails…..I think?

Man, that’s a tough call. Coffee gives me life in the morning. Coffee is my boo-thang.

{summer dresses}

Dress (on sale) | Clogs (on sale) | Choker Sunglasses | Clutch (similar)

Dress season is upon us ladies. I’ve got you covered with dress options that wont break the bank. And will get you though wedding + shower + graduation + brunch season.

Remember my Seersucker dress from last week: {list of loves} It’s currently marked down from $90 to $23! Swear! And it’s such an easy to wear dress.

I scoured my favorite online stores for dresses that I would totally rock. Think J.Crew. Madewell. Nordstrom. Old Navy. American Eagle. Target. You name it. Not only dresses that I dig, but dresses that also have a decent price tag.

I broke them down by length. You’ll have to let me know if that’s helpful.

You can shop each item by clicking on the images below……

{target tuesday}

Leopard PJ Top | Shorts | Mug

You don’t go to Target because you need something. You go to Target and let Target tell you what you need.  Am I right?  I went in for toilet paper + mascara and left with new leopard 🐆 PJ’s and a mug ☕️😂 didn’t even get the mascara.

All the things I have on my list and all the things I don’t need 🤷🏼‍♀️

{weekend notes}

Good morning! Happy June! It’s officially the last week of school. Which basically equals = shit show. So many things happening as we wrap up the school year.

I accidentally deleted my on going to-do list on my phone. Like it’s gone, gone. I checked my deleted and it’s not even there to restore. At first, I was really, really stressin. Like sweat stressing. After I realized there is nothing at all I can do about it….It was kind of reveling. I’m sure there will be something I forget to do, but it’s okay.

Intentions for the Week:

  • celebrate my girl Nicole’s Birthday
  • fill in my June calendar with ALL THE THINGS
  • hit the gym mon – fri
  • hang with my nephews
  • sit by the pool
  • go to bed at a decent hour (why do I wanna be a night owl lately?)
  • listen to Bay give her Treasurer speech
  • wash all the windows + sliders (it’s amazing what a difference it makes)

This week on xoxostacyb: Putting the finishing touches on my Father’s Day Gift Guide. Hoping to squeeze in a recipe. Tips on how to have a better Monday. And we’ll see what else I can come up with…lol!

{spring shoes}

Dress | Denim Jacket (on sale) | Clogs (on sale) | Sunglasses | Bracelet (on sale) | Necklace

I got 99 problems, but shoes aint one! In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve added a couple new pairs of kicks to the family. First, I pulled the trigger on the Free People Mont Blanc Sandals. Which I scored for $50. It was one of those good ol meant to be moments. They were the ONLY pair left. And just so happened to be in my exact size. Meant to be, right? Then last week the Strappy Clog Sandal that I’ve had my eye on, went on maj sale. I’m talking more than 60% off. It was love at first sight.

To be 100% honest though, shoes are not my weakness. I’m rather picky when it comes to shoes.

1 – because they are typically an investment

2 – when I find a pair of shoes I LOVE, it’s all I will wear

3 – they have to be comfy AF…I don’t mess around

Now fun, cute tops + jeans…..they are for sure the thing I can’t say no to.

With these two new recent additions, I’d say my shoe game is on point for the summer. I will run these puppies into the ground.

Dress | Denim Jacket (on sale) | Clogs (on sale) | Sunglasses | Bracelet (on sale) | Necklace

And just to set the record straight……having my photo taken while in public will NEVER, ever not feel super awkward. Like, what did I have my eye on in that bush? And this one here. Doesn’t it look like I’m about to knock someone out with my fist?

{weekend notes}

Well hello to the Monday-ist Tuesday there ever was!

Question: If you could drop everything today, and travel anywhere in the world…..where would you go?

Mine will forever be Italy. I love experiencing new places. Near or far! Taking photos. Walking around. Currently suffering from Major Wanderlust, can you tell? But, sitting at this beach did the trick this weekend.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Work on our Summer Bucket List
  • Dedicate an evening to all our fave self care
  • Plan out Bay’s summer (babysitting + camps + vacay’s)
  • Make some bomb.com dinner’s
  • Finish Girl, Stop Apologizing (such a great book)
  • American Eagle Try-On…they’ve got some cute shit!!!
  • Finishing touches on the front porch
  • Father’s Day gift guide for all the dudes in our lives
  • Count my Macros + log everything
  • Chill Out!

This week on xoxostacyb: You got my {Italian Salad} yesterday, and I truly apologize that it posted without the actual recipe yesterday. On my end it looked as though everything was just so, but I used a “page break” instead of a “read more” option. Which cut off the ingredients + directions. It’s corrected now! Other posts coming this week….my front porch refresh. Some fun dresses that wont break the bank. And maybe even a salmon recipe.

Highlights from the long weekend…..

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on our way to Tahoe Friday. It was the largest I’ve ever seen it in my years of driving to the cabin.

{a little of this + a little of that}

Dress (on sale) | Denim Jacket (on sale) | Hat | Sunglasses | Necklace

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!
