{band tee’s + american eagle try-on}

Today’s kids have “Old Town Road”

We had “Regulators, Mount Up”

Our Parents rocked out to AC DC and The Rolling Stones.

So my question is……

Will our kids be sporting Warren G “vintage” band tee’s when they’re our age?

You really never know. Ha!

I’ve totally got a thing for band tee’s! They legit go with everything. I once thought T-shirts were too casual, but nah girl – that’s a thing of the past. I’m here for this trend. Not sure if I’d call it a trend though? Seems like it’s been around for a longgggg ass time.

I did some lunch break shopping aka damage the other day at American Eagle. You guys they have a killer band tee collection! I had to eeny, meeny, miny, moe at the register. The struggle was real.

I have GREAT new for you guys!

Today through Sunday – American Eagle has almost everything store-wide 25% off! And this basically never happens. Some of these band tee’s are as low as $18! Runnnnn!

Ohhh, and I found a bunch of other cute shit I’m going to be sharing too! I’m telling you American Eagle is straight up GOLD right now.

{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.

{target tuesday}

SHOP: Tee | Jeans | Sunglasses ($10)

Not to be trusted alone at Target! Or at Target in general! Have you ever seen anything more fitting?

Once again, I’m sharing ALL THE THINGS Target today. A try-on + TONS of Hearth & Hand new arrivals. If Target had a Bar – my life would be perfect. I could sip chardonnay and I stroll the aisles. But, that could also be very dangerous. Ha! I guess Starbucks will do.

And I apologize in advance – Target has some really cute shit right now and you’re going to have to make a Target run ASAP!

New Fall decor items from Hearth & Hand hit Target stores on Sunday. And I think it’s safe to say – I’m obsessed. I love the colors. The textures. The Faux Amber Olive Branch Arrangements are so good and $10! I may have to pick up the Charcoal Stripe Area Rug for my Fall Front Porch. And the Wall Mount Toilet Paper Holder – random, I know, but LOVE this style. The Black Mirror with Shelf will fit perfectly in my tiny entryway. These Apothecary Glass Storage Bottles for bathroom counters are perfection. Stoneware Utensil Caddy would make a great flower vase. This Wood Letter Board – great for a first day of school sign. And of course, the Coffee Mugs always get my attention.

{leopard everything}

Tank | Denim Jacket | Black Denim | Tote | Sandals | Sunglasses

On Wednesday’s we wear leopard!

Surprise, Surprise! A whole post dedicated to leopard print. I feel like leopard print has always been a major trend for years. But, it’s real, real BIG at the moment. You can find a little leopard something at basically any retailer. From shoes to PJ’s. Scrunchies – yep, scrunchies are another major thang. Especially for the tween + teens! That headband though. You know I’m feeling the headbands! Belts are perfect if you’re easing your way into the print. You know I love that leopard skirt and it’s on SUPER sale. Bundling up an outfit with a scarf or topping with that amazing pullover! To the gym or to the beach. I found something in just about every category!

HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!

Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie?

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

“I went to Target and ONLY bought what I needed” said no one ever!

It’s a vicious cycle. I think I’m just walking in to make a return. Then BAM!!! I find 862 things I really, really need!

And then it happens all over again the next week.

If only the drive-up took returns. I’d have a shit-ton of money! But, then again, what would I do on my lunch breaks and free time? Hmmm!

Brace yo self & yo bank account. I’ve got some good shit on this Target Tuesday…….
