On Saturday I got to meet some girls who really are a big deal.
All we did was hang out in a hotel lobby and talk for like 30 minutes,
My goodness this picture makes me smile. Shay and I had THE BEST time.
You see Melanie there in the middle? Well, her book Sparkly Green Earrings hit shelves just a couple of short weeks ago….and it is now #27 on the New York Time’s Best Sellers List.
I know. Whoa.
(More on Melanie and the book tomorrow!)
I have been reading Sophie’s, Melanie’s, and Kelly’s blogs for a little over 4 years now (I started reading them when I was pregnant with Carter). I heard about their blogs through my then new friends (who are now some of my best friends) that were in a bible study that I had just joined.
Anyway, I started reading their blogs, and I never stopped.
So, getting to meet them yesterday was a definite thrill.
I was thinking it was going to feel a bit like meeting a celebrity.
Instead, it really just felt like I was meeting an old friend, which was AWESOME.
These 3 ladies are TOTALLY a big deal, but it’s like they have no idea.
Which of course makes them even more delightful.
They were all just as sweet and nice and cute as can be.
Anyway, today is kind of a teaser for an awesome giveaway that I have tomorrow.
Make sure you come back, you won’t want to miss it.
In the meantime, this should be no surprise, but Pinterest told me what to wear yesterday.
Pinterest talks, I listen.
It works for us.
I went with mustard skinny jeans and denim,
and I threw in some sparkly green earrings for good measure. 😉
J Crew Factory, exact shirt HERE (and it’s $20 off right now!)
If you prefer a darker denim, THIS denim shirt is sooooooo cute.
It has the perfect amount of distressing, and it’s just a teensy bit westerny without being
too yee-haw ride ’em cowboy.
Mustard Skinny Jeans|
similar HERE (pricey, but lots of size available) and HERE (super on sale but only a 24 and a 31 available)and HERE (seriously reduced, but only a 29 available)
sidenote: it’s easy to find a well priced yellow skinny jean, but apparently a mustard skinny jean demands a premium
Brown Wedge Boots|
Nordstrom, exact pair HERE on sale, but limited sizing available
Another similar pair HERE and HERE (this one on sale with a great rope detail!)
with plenty of sizes available.
And a pair I found yesterday that I might just become obsessed with HERE (see below for pic).
Black Belt| LOFT
Michael Kors watch| similar HERE (my exact one is sold out)
Tory Burch wrap bracelet| HERE
Green Teardrop Earrings| Stella and Dot, HERE
Necklace| Stella and Dot, HERE
First off, I should tell you that I just ordered the above earrings last week.
They came in on Friday, I wore them on Saturday,
and I got no less than 10 compliments on them in like a 5 hour span.
Including 2 separate ladies at Kroger within 5 minutes of each other.
Click HERE if you want to order them for yourself.
Because you totally should.
10 compliments in 5 hours people!
And, if I know myself, and I think I do,
HERE are the boots that I just may become obsessed with.
The perfect cognac color, the shape, the buttons (oh, the buttons), and the wedge.
They speak to me.
I know it seems like it might be kind of late to buy boots, but I don’t think I care.
I could wear them for another month or so,
and then I could be so excited to pull them out again next fall.
Come on, there is no denying that those are some gorgeous boots.
And yes, they speak to me.
They say “put your money where your mouth is and buy me”.
I like that.
2 more quick things before you leave:
GAP is 30% off today in the following departments:
Women, Men, GAP Body, and Maternity
You just need the code GAPDRESS
(25% off if you shop Tuesday, 20% off if you shop Wednesday…so just shop today!)
Not sure if it includes denim or not, but it probably doesn’t.
Hate it when GAP leaves their denim out of a sale.
That is SUPER annoying Mrs. and Mrs. GAP Executive.
Anyway, click HERE to shop.
And in addition….
kids, toddlers, and babies still has LOTS of stuff on sale (some up to 40% off) and no code needed.
I got THIS plaid anorak for the little man that I featured on Friday’s post.
Oh yes ma’m I did.
He is going to be SO FLIPPING CUTE.
Banana Republic is 40% off of 2 items today from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. with code BRFORTY.
I never shop Banana Republic because I think it is too expensive…but I can afford it at 40% off!
This Friday (March 1st) is our 2nd edition of Get Pin-spired!
All you have to do is what I do on the blog…recreate a Pinterest inspired outfit and show us!
