{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.

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.

{friday 5}

Sandals: Nordstrom // Free People | Denim

Happy Friday, Friends! I can’t stop saying “Happy Friday” I said it to every.single.person this morning at Nugget. At 6am. Even to the cashier at the gas station. To my co-workers right as I walked into the office. When I answer the phone. Ha! Guess I’m really ready and in need of the freakin weekend! I stayed up till past midnight cleaning the shit out of my house. You’d think I’d be exhausted? Nope, just happy it’s Friday apparently. You guys, today in my Great Grandma (we call her GG) 94th birthday. Ninety Four years young. I’m still in shock at what a complete bad ass she is.

Weekend plans: Whoop it up with GG tonight. Dutch + pedi + Ulta (I despise Ulta, just FYI) date with Bay tomorrow morning. Completing + turning in Bay’s 4-H record book. It’s godawful…..no joke. Wine sippin with some of my fave gals. Sleeping in. Extra coffee in my jams. Cooking. Meal prepping. Just a few other things I’m super looking forward to.

{gucci gang}

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……

{denim jumper dress}

Denim Jumper | Bodysuit | Vans | Sunnies | Puka Shell Bracelet | Rope Bracelet

Never say Never!

Like when I say, I’ll never, ever, eva wear……

White sunglasses – that’s pretty accurate. I don’t see that changing.

Teva Sandals – it’s a hard pass. I’m sure they are incredibly comfy and all, but it aint happening over here.

Overalls – technically this dress is considered overalls….so?

Puka shells – I’m back on the puka shell train. After years of being horrified of the puka shell chokers that were once in style. You know what I’m talking about? Yeah, those.

Here are some of the others that I posted on Instagram stories today.

{8 wing 7 // hot pink moment}

Top | Denim | Mules | Bag

Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.

Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.

  • Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
  • Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)

Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.

Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????

{weekend notes}

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

This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.

{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.
