Top | Denim ($50) | Tote | Sandals | Sunglasses | Necklace

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.

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……

{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!

Highlights from the weekend…..

{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……

Wonder if there is a margarita somewhere out there thinking about me too? Anyone else counting down till happy hour? Have the happiest Friday and great weekend, my friends!

I’m beginning to think I should change my blog name to xoxo target! Ha! Here comes another Target post.

You guys, I bought long shorts. Not like Mom shorts. Which I consider 4″ inseam. These are the lonnggg to my knees, shorts. They are back! Wasn’t sure it would be my thang, but turns out….I’m kinda diggin em. We’ll chat more about that next week.

So, what prompted annnnother Target post, I went in to pick up my long shorts order. Saw a sign that said “select tops” BOGO (buy one get one) 50% off. It’s select AF, but I was able to find some cute shit.

I was planning on just doing a quick dressing room try-on……

{easter basket ideas}

I LOVE Easter time. Well, I love all Holidays. We have so many fun Easter traditions, which makes this Holiday so fun. I always fill Bay’s basket with all the things summer time. New swimsuit. Beach towel. Goggles. Cute floatie. I pretty much follow what my parents did when I was a kid. Always a swimsuit and saltwater sandals. Oh and lots of candy. You can’t forget the candy! It’s like a Christmas stocking, but with summer stuff. All the fun little goodies.

I used to be able to post all my goodies here, but now I have a tween that likes to read my blog and look at all my photos. And since I want her to be somewhat surprised, I’m going to save her exact basket for Easter morning. I’m sharing all kinds of ideas. Some are in her basket this year. Some I’ve used in previous years. I even got extra and did a boy basket too!

I try to think of things she’s going to need as summer approaches and Spring break rolls around.
