Weekly Roundup

Whew, what a week! A week after fall break is always an adjustment, and our little homebody family had an atypical week to boot! On Wednesday, we had a Halloween party at my office, where the boys got to wear their costumes, go on a scavenger hunt, and have pizza. They had SO much fun, and I love seeing them so excited to learn more about where I spend my days. Then, last night I went down to the Twin Cities to celebrate Evereve’s 15th birthday! Their entire website is 10% off through the weekend to celebrate. I had so much fun getting to FINALLY meet some other Minnesota bloggers. I live outside of the city, so I don’t get to as many events as I would like. But it is so much fun to meet these ladies in person!

To cap off the week, we have a halloween party for our neighborhood tonight! The boys love wearing their costumes, and we have a young neighborhood. I am looking forward to meeting some of the new families and indulging in an adult beverage 🙂 Before we head into the weekly, my weekly roundup is below!

The Cutest Photobomber

Did you catch the cute little photobomber on my Instagram the other day? I am NOT a cat person, but this little guy came walking up as I took some photos, and was so darn sweet. I had to run away to get inside because the second he left my legs, he immediately came right back to me. Mike, you sure you don’t want a cat? 🙂 My top was just restocked on Amazon, and my jeans are at an unheard of sale price of just $47 this week! These have been around for a few years and I have NEVER seen them marked so low. If you have ever had your eye on these jeans, this is the sale to snag them!

Tan and Black

I think my absolute favorite color combination this fall is tan and black. It is neutral, but still gives off a slightly edgy vibe! I shared this poncho styled four ways last month, and this look was by far the most popular. Bonus-my faux leather leggings are on sale this weekend only and ship free! I am lusting over this adorable cheetah faux leather leggings, too!

Styling A Cheetah Skirt In The Winter

This skirt is one of my favorite items from the summer, and I just wasn’t ready to put it away just because the temps have already dropped here in Minnesota. I think it is so easy to dismiss skirts when it gets cold, but they can still be styled and worn! I wore mine over a pair of black tights (I live and swear by these), a white sweater, and a moto jacket. It instantly feels edgy and fun, and I was so darn warm and cozy. I styled it for the summer in this post if you want to see how versatile it is, and love that I can use it year round!

New Fall and Holiday Coffee Flavors

I shared this post featuring the new holiday flavors and blends I have been brewing this season. But so many of you asked about this sweater that I figured it was worth a reshare! It is soft, cozy, and is the definition of fall in sweater form 🙂 The slits are high, so you will need a cami with this one. It also comes olive green and black!

I hope you all have the best weekend. Still in denial over the fact that Halloween is NEXT WEEK and my favorite month of the year is just about over. I am holding onto every last fall day that I can!

Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday, you guys! This week has been a long one. On Tuesday, I swore it was Thursday. And on Thursday, Lincoln woke up sick. As a mom of young kiddos, you always know sickness is coming in the fall, but it never gets easier to deal with missing work, juggling child care, and still trying to make sure they are getting what they need to heal. Being a mom is hard-so moms of little kids, I am throwing an extra cheers out to you all this weekend as a reminder that we are not alone on those tough days! Onto prettier things, below is a weekly roundup of what I shared here on the blog and over on my Instagram. The leaves have just about peeked, and I am trying to capture all the pretty fall photos that we can!

Henley Sweater

There was so much love for this henley sweater this week! I will be straightforward in saying it itches a bit-I know that is an automatic NO GO for some people, so I like to mention it right away 😉 It isn’t overwhelming, but there is a touch of wool. Otherwise, it is so cute! The buttons are oversized and functional, and the red color is so perfect for fall.

This pretty white sweater was so loved by you all this week. For reference, I am wearing a size large tall, and it fits very well. Get your true size in this one! I have been wearing my Spanx faux leather leggings with so many outfits lately, I love how they are so comfy but still can be dressed up. Keep your eyes peeled-I may have a Spanx post coming soon!

Another share over on Instagram late last week was this pretty poncho sweater! I snagged it on sale for just $17, and it is so nice for the price. Incredibly soft and the prettiest colors, it just screams fall. There are no arm holes, and it is cut to naturally fall over your arms but is truly more of a scarf. I layered it over a white sweater with duck boots. It did snow last weekend, after all (and already melted, thank goodness!)

If I could suggest one trend item that you should buy this fall, it is a good moto jacket. They can be worn so many ways, are warm, and I love the little bit of edge they add to an outfit. The one I am wearing below is a tall fit, and I linked a few others that also come in tall! If you don’t need the extra length, I have a ton of options below at various price points. I have tried most of them on in stores, and the one from Old Navy, ASOS, and Target are my favorites!

This sweater was a part of my Amazon finds post, and is a great fall sweater. It runs true to size, but if you want it extra slouchy, go up one. I have been loving neutral colors with a pop of black, and this one is a statement piece for sure. Also, I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops that my black studded booties are still in stock in SO MANY SIZES, and are around $25 when you use the on site promo code!

Recent Amazon Finds

Did you catch my recent Amazon finds post earlier this week? These posts are always so popular-people love love them some Amazon! The most loved item by far was this henley top. It runs true to size, I got a large and it was roomy and long. The sleeves work well if you are tall, too! You can grab it in multiple colors, but there is something I just love about a good white shirt!

Last Week’s Roundup

Last week we lost Mike’s grandpa, and even though I had a post drafted, I just couldn’t find the time to commit to getting it live. But I had already put in the work so I decided to post it on Monday. You can see all of my favorites from last week, including my spooky console table!

July Top Sellers

Well I am late to the game with this post. I cannot believe we are already halfway through August! The school year is going to be here before we know it. Before we officially begin the downhill slide to September, I figured I better share my July top sellers! Quite a few of these items were from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but some tried and true Amazon favorites made the cut, too! 

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

These leggings were the top seller of the month by a LANDSLIDE. I am so excited that you all took advantage of them while they were on sale. I regretted not purchasing them all year (not even kidding). While we likely won’t see the NSale prices again, I will be sure to update you if I see them marked down at all! 

Top // Leggings // Shoes // Sunglasses

Colorblock Cardigan

This cardigan is more than just a July top seller. It has been one of the number one items all summer long! I love that you all love it as much as I do. It comes in other color combinations, I love the blue option and the neutral combo. If you have had your eye on it, now is the perfect time to snag it. Those chilly fall mornings will be here before you know it!

Cardigan // Tank Top // Jeans // Sandals // Tote

Striped Romper

This romper has been one of my favorite purchases this summer. It is SO comfortable, and fits amazing if you have a long torso! I wore it when we were sightseeing in Boston, and it was so cute but functional for all of the walking we did. I sized up to an XL for added length, but could have done my normal size large as well. It also comes in a tee version and off the shoulder style!

Romper // Purse // Tennis Shoes // Sunglasses

Lounge Tee

This item was another hit from the NSale, and with good reason. I love the oversized fit, and how much length it has. As a tall girl, it is always so frustrating when tees and tanks that seem to work for everyone else fit me poorly. This tee comes in multiple colors, and gets fantastic reviews! If you are looking for a good basic white tee, this is it!

Accent Pillow

This pillow was a fun surprise item to see you all snagging during the NSale! I love the cute pom details, and it would work in almost any room. You know you’re all grown up when you get excited about throw pillows, am I right!?

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

This cardigan was a splurge item, but let me tell you that it is WORTH IT. So soft, but thick and the most amazing quality. I have heard people say that there really isn’t another item to compare these cardigans to, and I get it. If you are looking to treat yourself, this is worth every penny!

Cardigan // Henley // Shorts

Wrap Dress

Truly, one of my favorite things about sharing items from Amazon is that they don’t go out of stock like items from other retailers. This dress is one I shared back in April, and a bunch of you snagged it a few weeks ago. It is SO flattering and how perfect is this color for fall!?

Dress // Shoes

Were any of the July top sellers items that you snagged!? I always love to do these posts to see what you all enjoy the most. Be sure to check out my June top sellers and May top sellers for other popular items!
