I ordered it while I was writing THIS Pinterest Told Me To recreation post. I linked the shirt as a great option since the shirt I was wearing in the post was sold out.
The shirt arrived.
And it’s PERFECTION.
And I promise, I’m not over-selling it.
The subtle stripes.
The sleeves that can be rolled up or down.
The popover-ness. (Just act like it’s a word.)
It’s ALL perfection in my book.
I will wear it with khaki shorts, white cut-offs, white jeans, and regular jeans.
It will look awesome under a military jacket too.
So it’s pretty much a year round shirt.
The day it arrived I wore it like this:
stripe roll sleeve popover / agate necklace (see below for a code!)/ $8 light pink earrings/
khaki shorts / MK watch / giraffe bracelet (see below for a code!)/
striped tote / glitter slide on sandals

So above you saw how I wore the shirt the first day I had it.
This is how I wore it the second day. Yes. The 2nd day in a row. Don’t judge.
I wore it the exact same way (with khakis and my glitter sandals), I just changed up the accessories for a more simple look.
So as you all know these glitter studs aren’t available today.
If our sources are correct, they will be available on Thursday when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes live to cardholders! (IT’S THURDAY! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!)
I don’t think there is any way in the world they will last until the site goes live to the public, because I’m imagining people are going to buy multiple pairs at one time (for themselves and for presents)!
Let’s be honest, people will probably buy them in bulk.
Look how pretty they are!
I saw this necklace online last week and ordered it, just hoping I would love it!
And I do!
Click HERE! It’s only $16! It’s so delicate and pretty!
And here’s a close up of my sandals that I first showed you last week.
Now that I’ve worn them for a couple of weeks, I can officially say that the glitter isn’t falling off (which I was worried about at first).

And yes. Mama needs a pedicure.
Okay..that’s enough shopping for today!
Two more things:
Many of you have said that for some reason or another you haven’t yet received the anniversary sale catalog. If you haven’t received yours, click HERE to see the online version to help yourself prepare!
So, the mom either needs to be LOCAL and able to be in either McKinney or Dallas by 10:00 a.m. on either the 20th or 21st.
But I promise I will make it worth her while with a …..
drum roll please….
$1,000 Shopping Spree at Nordstrom!
(And that’s not all, she will also get an amazing prize package from lots of other smaller retailers…those prizes will be announced later.)
Here’s Candace last year after we took Nordstrom down!
She’s the cutest.
So here’s how you nominate somebody (or yourself!):
The mom you nominate must be the mom of a child with special needs. I have a heart for these amazing moms that give so much of themselves to help their children, and I want to honor them.
And celebrate them!
If you want to read more about why I initially started these Special Mama giveaways, click HERE.
You must leave a blog comment with the name of the mom you are nominating. Also, please feel free to nominate yourself!
You must also click the box on the rafflecopter below stating that you did in fact leave a comment. The winner’s name will be chosen through the rafflecopter.
After a name is chosen, the winner (or the person who nominated the winner) will only have 24 hours to contact me because of the timeliness of us shopping on either July 20th or 21st. If the winner can not get here to go shopping on one of those days, another winner will be chosen.
So please, only nominate people if you are pretty sure they will be able to shop with me on one of those days!
I want to be able to shop with the mom, take her to lunch, and present her with the other gifts!!!
The winner will be announced on July 13th, and the winner or nominator will need to contact me by July 14th for me to validate the winner and make sure she can shop on the 20th or 21st!
So…go nominate lots of deserving moms!
And I’ll see you back here on Wednesday for The Bachelorette Recap!
If you’ve been reading here for awhile, you know that I’m a big fan of Erin Condren life planners.
My girl Samantha over at Erin Condren sends me one every year when they come out, and I get so excited when I know it’s on it’s way. But know this, even if she didn’t send one to me, I would DEFINITELY buy it on my own.
This year I got the vertical planner vs. the horizontal planner (click HERE and scroll to the bottom of the page to see the differences), and I’ve been loving the no bleed markers that she sent as well!
Here’s a pic of my new calendar after I put the markers to good use!
Look at THESE carry-alls for the calendar! Sometimes I throw the calendar in my purse or laptop bag, and I like the idea of it being more protected.
And I’m for sure ordering their new cover option where you can download lots of your ig pics!
Look how cute Shay’s is!
And spoiler alert: the team at Erin Condren will be giving one away to the Special Mama winner this month! WooHoo!!!!
