This popped up in my Timehop. 11 years ago. Baby Carter and Baby Sheaffer. Gosh I miss snuggling that sweet little fella. (Sidenote, my hair wasn’t at short as it looks.)
NEW KENDRA JEWELRY
I love Kendra’s newest launch. Lots of the pieces have a “vintage gold” option, and I really love the tone of this new metal that she’s doing. I have three of the pieces from the newest collection, and since I’m wearing the hoop earrings and the necklace in almost all of the outfits in today’s post, I thought I would go ahead and give y’all a close up now!
Aren’t they so pretty?!?
And although the above pieces aren’t on sale, there is a HUGE SALE ON SALE going on right now. This Abalone necklace is ONLY $33.73! And these vintage gold and white abalone earrings are STUNNING and ONLY $37.48! They will look especially great on those with dark hair.
I’m having a big moment with sneaker’s y’all. I just keep reaching for them. 2020 has pretty much mandated sneaker wearing, am I right?
These are my 2nd pair of Edge Luxe sneakers, AND I LOVE THEM. I also have the black, but I grabbed these just last week.
After my Sweaters and Sneakers post last week, I got a handful of requests for “regular” sneakers. Some of y’all just wanted a more basic option, and I totally get it!
So I went on the hunt, and I landed on these! They are a PERFECT neutral and will look great with jeans, denim shorts, leggings, and all sorts of athleisure! Officially they are called “Clear Brown/Nude/White”, but let’s just stick with the perfect neutral. I really like that the accents lean a little gold, but they aren’t shiny or flashy AT ALL. Seriously. The perfect neutral.
These are incredibly light, super comfy, and true to size!
FALL OUTFIT INSPIRATION
I had a dress up day earlier this week and put together several Fall outfits for us. You’ve seen the jeans and the sneakers before, and you’ve even seen some of the sweaters before too (but styled differently).
Let’s get started!
This boxy pullover sweater is just my style. This color is officially called “lilac”, but I feel like it’s closer to a really beautiful pale blush. The quality is amazing and I love the ribbed neck, cuffs, and hem. I’m wearing a medium here, but I’ve already returned it for a small.
Click HERE to see the same sweater styled with my black jeans and black mules.
And since these jeans are in the next 7 outfits, I think they deserve a highlight.
I would like to plead with you to GET. THESE. JEANS. They will be such a nice change for you for your Fall wardrobe.
They are so soft, so comfy, and they just look cool.
Officially, the color is “black”…but I think they are maybe more like a really realllllllllllllllly dark grey. Or maybe they’re black. Whatever they are, I LOVE THEM. It’s hard to see in the picture on the site, but they do have a bit of distressing. It’s not aggressive, it’s just a bit.
But my favorite part? They fit like a glove. I’m wearing my regular size 4, but consider sizing down if between sizes.
Click HERE to see these sneakers styled with 3 different outfits on a previous post. They’re so bold and funky that at first glance you might think they aren’t that versatile, but I hope today’s post proves otherwise! I’m wearing my regular size, but if between sizes, I would size down a 1/2.
(There’s a certain designer sneaker brand that is super popular right now, and even though I love the sneakers, I just never made the leap because of the price tag. These sneakers have all the bells and whistles that the designer sneaks do at a much more affordable price point. They are also insanely cushy and comfortable. I’m a big ol’ fan.)
So although these next 7 pictures of course are highlighting the tops and jackets I’m wearing, please pay attention to the fact that they are also proving the versatility of the jeans and sneakers! BECAUSE THEY’RE BOTH AWESOME.
You’ve seen this black tee and this denim jacket countless times in countless different outfits. I’m wearing a medium in the tee and a small in the jacket. This light wash in the jacket is sold out in some sizes, but the medium and dark washes are still available. The jacket is stretchy, comfy, and has a great fit.
I first wore the black on black look (with the funky sneakers) in my Sweaters and Sneakers post HERE. I thought it was a lot of fun, so this time, I just switched out the regular black jeans for these.
How flipping cute is this MOM MODE sweatshirt. It also comes in black and grey, but I fell in love with the blush. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium for a very relaxed fit. I wore this sweatshirt with denim shorts and my new neutral sneakers this week and it was so cute.
This darling bracelet is from the Fall Party Box that I highlighted last week. AND IT’S STILL ON SALE!
As a reminder, this box is truly an absolutely incredible deal. It’s a $335 value (including 4 classic best sellers & 6 new favorites ), and right now it’s ONLY $99! Keep them all for yourself, or separate them out for lots of gifts.
This striped v neck sweater is a great mid-weight sweater option. Love the stripes, love the colors, and love the fit. I look forward to styling it with regular denim and leopard flats as well. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I always love a striped sweater, and the colors in this one are beautifully muted while still screaming Fall! Rust, cream, grey, and blush come together for a great color combination.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, but I think I would prefer the fit of the medium so it would be a bit more of a relaxed look.
This pullover is awesome. They call it a sweatshirt, but I don’t think of it as a sweatshirt….more like a heavy tee that is CRAZY SOFT. SERIOUSLY. IT IS SO SOFT. It’s got a little bit of stretch to it and almost has a kind of silky feel. I like that it’s slouchy, but not sloppy. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
The reviews on the site are fantastic and lots of reviewers posted pics if you want to see it in other colors or on different body types.
Admittedly, this peplum wrap top has mixed reviews, but I really love the colors and I love the shape. I do think it’s going to be a hard fit for some people. There is a snap, which I appreciate. The little tie is great to give some shape, and I think the peplum is so cute. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
And because I can’t take no for an answer.
Here are the jeans again.
Just get them, m’kay?
They’re awesome. (Again, I’m wearing my regular size 4.)
THEY’RE JUST COOL.
And my Amazon bracelet is back in stock! And under $12 right now!
bracelet (A2 – short gold)

VACUUM FEEDBACK FROM READERS
On the very last day of August, I first posted about my new vacuum. Well, tons of you decided to try it out as well, and I’ve received SOOOOOOOOOOO MANY e-mails about it.
Here’s the latest one I received:
Sheaffer, I purchased this on your advice, I wasn’t expecting it to be fabulous (due to the price point). BUT WE LOVE IT! We just got a Golden puppy and they arrived the same day. It was meant to be! We have been following our little guy around and cleaning up after him and this vacuum stands up to the test! This vacuum is fantastic, it is light, powerful, keeps a charge and a great price.
Thank you so much for the wonderful recommendation! – Jennifer M.
Jennifer! Congrats on the Golden puppy, and I’m thrilled that you are as happy as we are with the vacuum. Now that we’ve had it for almost 2 months now, I love it even more than I did when I first wrote the post. We use it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. And it continues to be awesome.
Look how happy this vacuum makes me.
SALE ALERTS! SALE ALERTS! SALE ALERTS!
This sweater just went 40% OFF, making it ONLY $35.40 right now!
It’s appearing much more fuschia in pictures than it is in real life, but it isn’t the red it appears on the site either.
I think in real life it reads much more like a “garnet” or “beet” (but with some hot pink undertones), and I really love the true color. It’s lightweight, it’s soft, it has a relaxed fit, and it’s the perfect weight for a half tuck. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
This sweater is my idea of sweater perfection, and now it’s ON SALE.
This rust color is beautiful, and I think it will look great with regular denim, black denim, and grey denim. It’s incredibly soft and the fit is awesome. It’s not loose or baggy, but it’s not fitted either. I would say it’s a medium weight with a slight hi-low hem. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Click HERE to see the sweater styled with denim jeans and leopard sneakers in my sweaters and sneakers post from a couple of weeks ago!
This tie dye top is SO MUCH FUN and NOW ON SALE! The colors are great, we all know that tie dye is all the rage right now, and then it’s all topped off with a subtle little puff sleeve. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
I think it looks great with the black jeans above, but I thought it would also look amazing with my itty bitty boot cut jeans. I was right. I can also see it styled with my frayed hem ankle jeans and leopard flats.
Even ON SALE this blouse is still expensive, but it’s so cute! I love the pattern and the swingy fit, and I know it will be in constant rotation. It is on the thin side, so it might not be a bad idea to wear a nude cami with it. I’m wearing a small, and it’s still an oversized fit. It’s FABULOUS.
This one doesn’t give me quite as much sticker shock, but it’s still knocking on the $100 door. BUT WAIT! I just realized it’s ON SALE for ONLY $59.95.
And it’s CAMO! And it has PUFF SLEEVES!
It’s not cropped, but it’s not long either. It will be best worn out, but if you have a super long torso, it will probably be shorter than you’d like. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. It’s like a sweatshirt material and cozy!
LOOK AT THIS BLOUSE!
The colors! The floral pattern! The little ruffle and pleated neck! The ruffled sleeves!
I LOVE IT ALL. And now it’s 40% OFF with the code SALETIME.
Here it is on me!
I’m wearing a medium in the top because of the lack of stretch. If you don’t need room in the chest, I believe you can stick to your regular size.
If you didn’t see Monday’s post, I really hope you click over to check it out. I tried IT Cosmetics products for the first time, and I was BLOWN AWAY. I have a pretty comprehensive brand review with my thoughts on lots of products, and several favorites rose to the the top, including the CULT FAVORITE CC+ Cream.
I did get some questions about what I was wearing. The short answer? A lot of my very favorite things. I absolutely love the necklace and the earrings, you know I’ve been obsessed with the shorts for years, and this is the newest blardigan to be added to my collection!
And if you didn’t catch the post, when I say thorough review, I mean it. Click HERE to check it out!

COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD FRIENDS AND FAMILY SALE
Okay, ladies! I asked for questions on instagram earlier this week and got some really great ones, but I wanted to open up questions here too. Do you have any skin care questions? Colleen Rothschild herself will be answering all of our burning questions next week!
Leave a comment if you have a question for her!
In the meantime, their FRIENDS AND FAMILY SALE is going down right now!
25% OFF SITEWIDE
My first recommendation for those new to the line is always for the JUMBO size of the famous cleansing balm!!! The Jumbo Cleansing Balm is normally $95, even though it’s a $130 value. BUT TODAY YOU CAN GET IT FOR $71.25! INCREDIBLE.
Out of all of the products in the Colleen Rothschild line (and I use and love MANY of them), the cleansing balm is my favorite product by far. It totally changes the taking off your make up game, and I’m telling you, you won’t even dread washing your face at night. I KNOW. That’s a big claim, but I stand behind it.
I’ve received countless messages (seriously, COUNTLESS) from y’all about all of Colleen’s products, but the cleansing balm is at the tip top of the list. Here’s just one example:
Hi, Sheaffer! After years of hearing you talk about your love for the CR cleansing balm, I finally bought some for myself when the jumbo tub was on serious sale. I cannot believe this product. You are right in that I actually look forward to washing my face, and it’s never felt cleaner or softer. And it looks so supple and hydrated! My husband’s family came to visit, and I made my mother in law and sister in law try it. They are going to buy it now too. Anyway, thanks for the recommendation, and I’ll definitely be trying other CR products as well. – Meredith
Yay, Meredith! I’m so glad to hear that you love the balm just as much as I do! This balm truly has a cult following. For those of you that haven’t tried it yet, it’s different than any other cleanser I’ve ever used.
First of all, I apply it to a dry face. I scoop out a small amount of the balm with dry hands and slather it on to my dry face. And as I rub it on my face, the heat from my hands changes the balm into more of an oily texture and it just feels incredibly luxurious. It melts my makeup away, leaves my skin feeling amazing and hydrated, and the light citrus smell is PERFECT.
Not only do I use it to cleanse my face morning and night, I also use it as a type of leave on mask when I’m battling dry skin. If my skin is dry, normal moisturizer tends to just sit on the surface, and my skin won’t absorb it enough to be properly moisturized. But when used as a mask, the cleansing balm hydrates my skin like nothing else can, and I cannot recommend it enough.
This jumbo tub is a little over twice the size of the regular size balm, and right now it’s ONLY $6 more. This deal is truly incredible, especially when you know that this tub will most likely last you 9-12 months. It’s 100% worth the investment.
And just in case you are somebody that likes to knock out Christmas shopping early, IT MAKES AN EXCELLENT GIFT.
Think about it, if you already have AND LOVE this balm, wouldn’t it be so exciting to gift it to a loved one? If you’re like me, you love sharing products you love with people you love, and this deal is just too good to pass up. You’ll be changing their daily routine by giving them this balm, and you will be introducing them to a product that they will become devoted to, just like we are!
Also good to consider, the jar and the box make a lovely gift presentation. The packaging is beautiful, and it’s obvious that it’s a luxury product.
And I can’t let y’all go without letting you know that the Glycolic Acid Peel Pads are BACK IN STOCK!
I added them into my weekly routine many months ago, and I think they are REALLY great. They sold out so quickly when they were first launched, and then sold out again after they were restocked. PEOPLE LOVE THEM, and I’m so happy they are finally back again.
So, what are they? Remember the Stridex pads we all used as teenagers? Well these are the new and much improved version!
These pads boast a spa-strength treatment formula that helps to help dissolve skin-clogging dirt and debris. And listen to this… your skin’s natural renewal process will be enhanced as a result of the 10 percent blend of The Glycolic and Lactic Acids in the pads. The pads target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, imperfections and will reveal a fresher, brighter, more even complexion. YES, PLEASE!
I’m ALL ABOUT brighter skin and these really deliver! They are large, so I sweep the pad all over my face, neck, and chest. There are 60 pads per order, and I’m only using one of these every several days, so they should last between 2-3 months.
Whew! That was a doozy of a post, y’all! That’s it for today, and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
