Wine flies when you’re having fun 🍷🍷

Today I’m grateful for:

a fresh start

cory

sunny days

chardonnay

and cute kimonos from bella moda boutique!

Why did the weekend fly by so fast? Spent Sunday Funday wine tasting in Clarksburg. We #chardsohard at Bogle Winery. Cory even joined the wine club so cheers to more trips in the future. We had a very chill weekend and even more chill week ahead. Trying to really embrace the final weeks of summer.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Soak up all my time with Bay before school starts
  • Make zero point meatballs
  • Kick my Mom’s ass at weigh-in this week
  • Take extra good care of myself
  • Decide on a 2020 planner
  • Actually take a hike on the weekend (not just talk about it…lol)
  • Breakup with sugar (added sugar) for 10-days (bye chardonnay)
  • Pink hair, don’t care?
  • Give out some random acts of kindness….the whole World needs it!

This week on xoxostacyb: Not making any promises lol, but I’m hoping to get up Target Tuesday. New Trader Joe’s items we’re loving. And finally my Old Navy Try-on. Maybe, just maybe Friday 5 too?

Highlights from the weekend……

{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.

{mini closet clean out}

Tee ($12) | Skirt ($20)| Booties sold out // similar | Sunglasses | Rope Bracelet

It’s Thursday friends. The HOT as hell weekend is almost here. Almost, almost, makes me not that excited for the best two days of the week after reading the weather forecast. 108 degrees. Sickening! We are going to head to the coast for a bit and get some vitamin sea. And cooler temps.

I was looking in my closet the other day. Had one of those “I hate everything I own” kinda days. Which is absolutely ridiculous. But, we all have those days, right? Next thing I know, I’m pulling shit out and throwing it on my bed.

And it got me thinking. Why wait for spring to start cleaning? I like + NEED to do it seasonally. And since the famous Nordstrom #nsale has me dreaming of fall trends, I’m ready to make room and get rid of some shit I really don’t need.

Scroll down for some tips on how I purge my closet each season. Pack away the things you wont need for a few months so you can really see the clothes you have + love. And make a list of items you need to fill in the gaps. Grab a good bottle of wine. And spend the hot ass weekend doing some much needed closet clean out. I promise you wont regret it!

Remember that one time I did the Marie Kondo Method? You can read all about it right here: {weekend notes} I recommend reading the book and doing some research before you take on a project like this one. Shared more about it here: {let’s kon marie} Or what about the time {i gave up shopping for 30 days…kinda} I sourced all kinds of great closet goodies that I have and love.

Things you really need to get rid of NOW……

Music + Wine

Before you get started….Put on some good ass music. This is no time for Adele! You’re gonna need some of that good mood music. And a BIG ass glass of wine. Hell, just bring the whole bottle into your room! Getting tips might make some purging decisions a little easier. Just saying.

The Skinny Jeans

And I’m not chatting about the skinny legged jeans we all own and love to death. Keep those sis! What about those jeans you’ve been packing around for years. Maybe even since…..high school? Those ones you once wore. But you can now hardly get one leg into? The ones before you had #hellakids. Yeah, those skinny jeans. Live in the present girlfriend and ditch those never-gonna-wear again jeans. Better yet, gather them up and head to Madewell or J.Crew. They will give you a $20 voucher for each pair of old ass jeans. Not matter what condition they are in. Then next time you’re in the market for new pair of denim…you turn it in and save yo self some money honey!

{how I make money blogging}

SHOP: Crochet Sweater | Black Denim | Clogs ($40) | Sunnies | Starbucks Tumbler

Thirsty Thursday got the best of me. I’ll blame it on my Mom! We went to see The Lion King. Made a detour at Nugget after the movie for a bottle of wine. Found out they are having a sale on Bogle (my fave) $6.99 a bottle. So, we ended up getting 3. And a loaf of bread and cheese. Dinner!

Currently surviving on mass amounts of coffee, Lumify drops (THE best), kids chew-able Tylenol and my dark sunnies…ha! Seriously worth it. Sometimes you gotta get a little tips!

So, this week alone, I’ve had 5 people ask me about my blog. Not really sure why I post clothes. And why I always say “link in bio”. And “you make money?” Honestly, it never crossed my mind that everyone and their mothers didn’t already know what I was up too.

I’m spillin the tea on what I do . How I do it. And Yes, I do make money. Since it’s such a HOT topic. And it’s no secret, so I’m laying it all out.

Before I dive in, I want to THANK you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you to those that shop from my blog, facebook or instagram. I hope you know how much I appreciate when you take the time to shop through my links. I work really hard to find the best sales and deals. To make it convenient for you! Truly, I enjoy it. And your continued support makes it that much more fun!

You. Are. The. Best!

So here’s the tea sis…..

{let’s have more fun on summer weekdays}

Rainbow Sweater Tank | Denim Skirt ($16) | Clogs ($40) | Sunglasses | Rope Bracelet

The days are long but the years are short. I get it. But, so is the summer. Sometimes waiting for the weekends to do all the things summer is just straight up torture. Saturday’s + Sunday’s are great and all, don’t get me wrong. But, why not have just a little more fun on the weekdays too?

By the way…..

There are only like 35 days left of summer before school starts.

45 days till Fall.

and brace yourself…..

160 days till Christmas!

Here are 5 simple things that I, for one, would normally reserve for the weekend. I’ve decided to switch it up and make my weekday vibes a little brighter and really take in the summer days….

SHOP: Leopard Tank | Sunglasses | Necklace

Happy Monday friends! I woke up this morning in very, very desperate need of coffee. Lots of coffee! To find out I had zero coffee. No k-cups. No coffee beans. Nada! That is not the way to start a Monday, let me tell ya. I bee-lined it to Starbucks for a venti and I’m feeling alive finally.

We spent the weekend in Tahoe. It was the 4th weekend in a row we’ve been in Tahoe. As much as I love it at the cabin, I’m jones’n for a stay at home weekend. We got a chill week and I’m excited to kick it a home as much as possible. And catch up on laundry! ha!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Share all the amazing sale finds
  • How to have more fun during the summer weekdays
  • Work in the yard
  • Pull 10 items from my closet to sell
  • Try a new salad recipe
  • Lemon table + lemon granita
  • Date night with Bay to see Lion King
  • Hang out at home
  • Log food in my Weight Watchers app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water

{#nsale}

SHOP: Chambray Top (40% off) | White Denim Shorts (40% off)| Sunnies

Today is a great day because:

  1. It’s FRIDAYYYYY!
  2. The BIGGEST and best sale of the year starts today! Nordstrom Anniversary sale. AKA #nsale

I’m sure you’re being inundated with all the things Nordy’s today. But, this is kind of a big deal.

Here’s some info for those of you shopping the sale today…….

Early Access for Cardholders: July 12 – July 18 (online + in store)

Public Access: July 19 – August 4 (online + in store)

Pro Tip: I’ll update this post again with new finds and treasures once the sale goes live for Public Access. Make sure to visit this post again for all the live updates.  You may want to order things right away instead of leaving them in your cart for a long time, because they WILL sell out. Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, plus you can choose the Buy Online and Pick-Up in Store option while adding items to your cart. When you do an in-store pick-up, Nordstrom is offering a $10 Nordstrom Reward PER ORDER! I usually end up having a few orders to be able to shop while they’re in stock.

If you are NOT a cardholder, you can apply today and have immediate access to the sale before it hit the Public next Friday. That’s one whole week. Nordstrom Card Application: Norstrom Card

I’m sharing all my top picks with you today!

Happy shopping everyone!
