Not sure how it happened, but we are at the final Friday of July. Can someone please explain to me why summer has to go by SO quickly? I wouldn’t mind if the month of March would pass by in a blink, but summer needs to slow down! This week has been a crazy one, with so much going on. I have barely even had time to process that Jackson turns F-I-V-E next weekend. I swore it was still a month away, but that is not at all the case! He has requested a birthday party, so I am sure we will begin doing some prep next weekend. I managed to turn their birthdays into quite an event over the past few years (see his party from last year HERE and my most popular pins ever HERE), but they boys have so much fun picking their theme and planning that I really can’t complain. And I am a sucker for a good balloon wall 😉 Keep reading for this week’s weekly roundup, and the best sales happening this weekend at the bottom of the post!
Yellow was apparently the color of the week over on my Instagram. I shared this cute blazer and my all time favorite cardigan, and it is obvious what my color preferences are 😉 I seriously wear the colorblock cardigan to work every single week, it is SO comfortable and versatile!
My Big News
Thank you all SO MUCH for your kind words on my big announcement this week! It has been quite the change, and I am still pinching myself some days that my blog and side business are what enabled me to make a total career change. I feel incredibly blessed that my hard work has payed off and am so excited about what lies ahead.
Cold Brew Coffee
Despite having some temps this week that feel very fall-like (hey, I’m not complaining!) we had a few weeks that were HOT. I shared how I have been making cold brew coffee at home, delicious oat milk creamer included. It is so easy to make, and bonus points for it being ready the second you get up in the morning with no wait time while it brews!
Major Deals on Spanx!
I have heard a lot of talk about how many people were disappointed in the Nordstrom sale this year. Items sold out FAST, and so many people were unable to take advantage of the promised deals! One hot ticket item that I mentioned in my post was these leggings; as suspected, they sold out FAST. But one thing to keep in mind during the craziness of the #nsale is that SO many items can be found at other retailers.
I have a weekly roundup of the best places below to find the faux leather leggings, and the top link will actually bring them in UNDER $60! I have always wondered if they lived up to the hype, and the answer is YES. Tall girls, they will work for you! Short girls, they offer petite sizing! Your tummy is sucked in without making you feel like you can’t breathe, and make your legs look like a million bucks. These leggings also BREATHE! I have tried other faux leather leggings that felt hot and sticky, but these have the look of faux leather with the breathability of leggings. They are GOLD and worth every penny!
Sign up for e-mails for an extra 10% off and snag these for less than $60 here!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! One month til back to school-who is ready for pumpkins and sweaters!? I’m not quite there yet-but I have started to have my moments of daydreaming about it 😉
