{weekend notes}

Hello Monday. Why did you have to arrive so quickly? Had a little too much Sunday Funday so I’m running in slow mo today. But, it was 100% worth it. Today marks day one of the I Heart Macros – Love your body challenge. I got up to “dude where’s my car” ha! So, I improvised and did the at home workout. Which totally kicked my ass. If you’re interested in the challenge, here’s more info: Love your body challenge I’ll be talking more and sharing more about this program as I dive more into it.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Learn all about Macros with I Heart Macros
  • Restyle our entryway
  • Visit Windmill Vineyards
  • No online shopping for the entire week (FML)
  • Try a new DIY for the blog
  • Share my new Italian Salad recipe
  • Delete photos from my phone (my camera roll is at 19,000…yikes)
  • Plan a weekend getaway with Cory
  • Hit my sleep goal (at least 7 hours)

This week on the blog: Target got me again, so let’s do a Target Tuesday. I’ll be sharing my new Italian salad recipe. I’ve been promising to share my day of zero point Weight Watchers food log. And a new DIY! It’s going to be a fun week on xoxo stacyb 🙂

Highlights from the weekend…..

{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……

Happy FRIDAYYYYY!

A BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mama’s out there. I hope you get to rest + relax at some point this weekend. I hope you get the day off from wiping butts. Maybe even brunch withOUT the rugrats. Or breakfast in bed? Preferably take-out so your kitchen isn’t f’ed up. A special handmade card from school. Oh and how about one of those macaroni noodle necklaces? Yes, I hope you get one of those too! And maybe a homemade coupon book? Filled with “leave me alone” vouchers. Ha! Whatever you do, have a good one! Cheers!

Weekend plans? You guys, I’m a free woman. Well, kinda. More like my calendar is free AF! Meeting some of my girlfriends for happy hour tonight. A little shopping tomorrow. Followed with a Mother’s Day spa date at Cache Creek Casino. Sunday we’re doing the Capay Garden Tour. Never done it before, but I keep hearing great things. I’m looking forward to a weekend of family + friends + cheers!

Now let’s chat about steps….baby steps. We’ve slowly been making an effort to be less wasteful and reduce our plastic waste. Today I’m sharing some of the simple changes we’ve made in our home. I know that even the small part I play can actually make a difference

{friday 5}

Square Neck Top | Levi’s Shorts: Free People / Zappos / Levis| Sandals | Bamboo Bag | Earrings (on sale) | Bracelet | Tortoise Bracelet

Friday!!! Set my alarm for the last time this week. Which makes me really, really happy. The only thing that could make it better? A big glass of chardonnay. Or a margarita. Ohhh, one of Martini Mama Liz’s gin martinis. Yep, any of those would work.

14 days and I’m gonna get white girl wasted…just saying!!!

I know today is Friday 5, but I’m not feelin it, so we’re going to chat about these shorts.

{what to wear to thanksgiving}

Two days till the biggest cheat day of the year…HA!

Therefore I’m opting for stylish yet comfortable.  You know, so that you don’t have to worry about eating that second piece of pie.

Speaking of pie, I’m baking a new one tonight.  Pumpkin pie in a graham cracker crust?  Raise your hand if you LOVE graham cracker crust too!   I have NO idea if it’s going to be good.  So, I’m making 2.  One for tonight to test and one for thanksgiving.  Don’t even trip, I’m gonna tell you all about it!

I put together two Turkey day looks that I would actually wear.  I keep seeing chicks posting dresses.  Do people really wear dresses on Thanksgiving?

Happy October, friends!  Am I the ONLY freak that was uber excited that October 1st fell on a Monday?  Monday’s are already for fresh starts, but when the 1st + a Monday collide….happy AF!

A happy little buzz (not the wine kind of buzz) comes along with the month of October.  How can you not crack a smile when you walk past piles of pumpkins at the grocery store.  The temps start taking a slight dip.  Dream of hearty recipes.  Fluffy blankets.  Cozy sweaters.  Red wine…oh yeah.  Festive fall candles.  Changing of colors.  We saw a lot of this in Oregon last week, which I’ve never experienced before here in California.  Slowing down.  And starting fresh.

Hence the 1st falling on a Monday.  And it being the last 90 days of the year.  It’s the perfect time to freshen up.  Change your routine.  I’m jumping on the #last90days challenge.  Basically living the last 90 days how you lived the first 90 days of the year. We’ll touch more on that next week though.

I need to add #twinning with my tween to the list!  Ha!

Our LA sweatshirts have been on maj repeat.  We’ve declared them to be our weekend wear.  And she still thinks it’s cool to match me!  Insert happy dance.

Wanna twin with us?  lol!  Our sweatshirts are 40% off with code: BIGSALE  And the Levi’s are marked down today too!

{casual + edgy + dressy}

Blazer // Denim // Grateful Dead Tee ($16)// Heels // Earrings // Sunnies // iPhone case

 

I’m all about an eclectic look.  Putting some of my favorite classic pieces together.  Mixing and matching different styles to come up with something new + unexpected.  I like to call this one casual with a touch of dressy and a side of edge.  Ha.  A little business mixed with a little casual.  Kinda reminds me of my {the mullet} #ootd from November 2016!

During my {spending freeze} (aka the worst 30-days ever) I was challenged to create new outfits with things I already had.  So, I pulled out all the classic, timeless pieces that I wear over and over.  J.Crew Blazer.  Levis.  Heels.  Then find a way to jazz it up into something new + fun without spending money.

Ladies, grab all your tanks + graphic tee’s!  Mix and match them with cardigans + blazers.  It’s such a great way to incorporate summery items while transitioning to fall.

Would you rock something like this?

Tuesday would be a lot cuter if it were Friday!  Just saying!

The vacation hangover is a real thing.  I’m dying peeps.  I mean, not really.  Just a passenger on the struggle bus this week.  It just so happens to also be one of those weeks where there is something penciled in on every.single.day.  Whyyyy?  And it’s going to rain.  WTF Mother Nature?  Get it together.  I was in sandals (pictured below) and a short sleeve top yesterday.  Obvi Spring Fever is a real thing too!

Okay, enough bitching.  Maybe if we all bust out our cute spring outfits, the sun will come out + stay out?  It’s worth a shot 🙂

Here’s what I wish I was wearing/can’t wait to wear……

It’s Hump Day…..unfortunately not Friday.  Even though it feels like it should be Friday.  Anyone else?  All day yesterday, I thought it was Wednesday.  I wrote it.  Almost screwed up some plans.  Then I realized it was Taco Tuesday, and that made it a little better.

Speaking of Taco Tuesday, Maria’s Cantina stepped up their Taco Tuesday game.  The normal 2 Woodland Tacos + Modelo for $5 have a new partner.  2 Woodland Tacos + Margarita for $10!  And the bartender can also make a mean skinny, skinny marg too!  You’re welcome.

You guys…..

TOMORROW is the first day of March!  We are inching closer and closer to Spring.

20 days to be exact.  The countdown has begun.

I’m dreaming of Spring.  And all things Spring.  Nothing beats the onset of Spring.  Am I right?

And how about this scallop eyelet trim sweatshirt?  It’s perfection.  Crisp white.  Feminine eyelet detail.   Keyword: ON SALE!

I put this sweatshirt on and fell in love ♥

I can’t wait till it warms up just a little and I can pop this on with a pair of cut-off shorts + sandals.

But, until then, I’ll be rocking it with warm jeans + closed toed shoes…lol.

When your homegirl tells you J.Crew has the perfect T-shirt.  Not just any old T-shirt.  A T-shirt that represent you.

A fucking chardonnay T-shirt you guys!

IMG_5501

You buy that T-shirt.  And you wear that T-shirt with pride.  Well done J.Crew, well done.

CHEERS!!!

The only thing missing is a big glass of chard in my hand.  But this was taken at 7:30 am and that may have looked kinda funny?
