It’s Friday, so y’all know what that means! It’s time to link up with Erika and Andrea to let everybody know what some of my favorite things are right now.
SPRING AND SUMMER OUTFITS
Do you remember this outfit I shared on Monday? So many of y’all loved it and it was a favorite for us all!
shirt / silver earrings / jeans / bracelet / sandals (size up a 1/2) / bag
Well, I don’t have the bag or the bracelets, but here’s the outfit in real life! I totally need the bag to top it all off, right?
This tee is adorable, and I can’t stop reaching for it.
It’s a soft grey tee in the front, but the sleeves and the back are unique and DARLING. This tee just straight up makes me happy. The back and sleeves are like a crisper cotton (but not too crisp), the color are beautiful, and the florals are adorable. I love the longer length of the sleeve, and I also love that the sleeves are puffy, but not overwhelming. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
shirt / silver earrings / jeans / sandals (size up a 1/2)
I’m a huge fan of these jeans. THEY’RE AWESOME. They are straight legged, cropped, and minimally distressed. They are a great way to ease into the non skinny jean trend. I’m wearing my regular size 27. They do have a bit of stretch in them and are forgiving, so if you are often between sizes, size down.
The sandals are awesome, but size up a 1/2 for sure. I’m wearing the “cactus suede”, which is a really pretty grey blue color, but I like them in all the colors that are available (neutral, black, gold, white, and mustard).
shirt / silver earrings / jeans / sandals (size up a 1/2)
Do you remember these white frayed hem denim shorts? I think they look great with this tee too.
shirt / must have earrings /white frayed hem denim shorts / sandals
I teased these on my denim shorts review last week saying I had ordered them for myself. Well, they came in, and they’re awesome. Even better than I had hoped! They’ve got a bit of stretch, a great frayed hem, and just the right amount of distressing. I’m wearing my regular size 4. I typically size up in white jeans, but I didn’t need to in these because of the stretch. Several sizes are already sold out, but maybe you’ll get lucky?

I’ve received a lot of great feedback from readers over the last couple of weeks, and y’all are loving the statement tops that I’ve been featuring. And I’ve got great news because I have several more coming up in the next couple of weeks!
This embroidered blouse is beautiful with so many amazing details! Look at the cuffs!
Now listen, this top is an investment. It’s SPECIAL. The colors and embroidery work are gorgeous. I know that some will think the price tag is ridiculous, but some might think a super special blouse like this is worth it. To each their own! For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I actually didn’t keep this top for myself, but I still wanted to show it. The only reason I didn’t keep it is because I did keep this top that you’ll see next week (that’s even more expensive). #oops I’ve never spent this much on a top and most likely never will again, but I ordered it as a possibility for my bracelet collaboration shoot, and I FELL. IN. LOVE. I justified keeping it by saying that it was for a special collaboration and part of a memory, and here we are. Ha!

Here’s another up close shot of the white shorts.

UPDATE: Thanks to a reader (shout out, Ashley!), I found out this morning that this embroidered blouse is ON SALE for a “limited time”. Not sure what “limited time” means, and it’s still expensive, but every little bit help right?!?
I will wear this shirt for years with a smile. It’s FABULOUS. And I’m telling you, it’s even better in person. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. It doesn’t have any give up top, so I definitely needed the medium (but I’m very broad up top).
It looks great with denim shorts.
embroidered blouse / must have earrings / denim shorts / patent sandals
And I LOVE it with white jeans too. If you love a statement top, I would consider sucking it up and grabbing this at the sale price. Look at the embroidery work! Look at the colors! Look at the sleeves!
These are the white jeans that I’m obsessed with. Click HERE for my full review of the jeans and to see them in 10 different outfits! I’m wearing my regular size 4, size down if between sizes.

Y’all have seen me in this striped sweater with regular jeans before, but I love it with white denim too. This is the sweater that I also own in the solid “rosy grapefruit” and the navy and white stripe combo. And it’s 50% OFF right now with FREE SHIPPING with the code OMG!
It’s soooooooo soft, its got a great relaxed fit, and it’s a great weight for spring days and cool summer nights and mornings. And I’m not the only who loves it, it has fantastic reviews and it just feels great on. Notice how the sleeves are kind of blousy up top, but more fitted on the bottom, so even though the sweater is oversized, it doesn’t look sloppy.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small and it’s still plenty roomy. I tried the x-small too, and although it fit, I liked the extra slouchy fit of the small.

I’m showing these frayed hem denim shorts because I received probably 20 requests to show them after my denim shorts review post last week. (I had intended to show them on the review post, but they just didn’t arrive in time.)
When you read the online reviews, you’ll see review after review stating that these are the perfect age appropriate shorts for ladies over 40. They’ve got a little give to them, but not as much as the white ones above which are quite a bit more stretchy. I would say these are true to size, I’m wearing my regular size 4.

This knit shift dress isn’t new (I’ve had it for a couple of years I think), and it’s still a closet staple. I’m wearing a petite medium here. It’s a good weight, it’s not see thru, it’s super comfortable, and it’s just cute! So easy to just throw on and go, and it looks great with both sandals and fun little sneakers.
This is the Free People denim jacket in Indigo blue and it also comes in a funky bleach and blue tie dye/acid wash combo. It’s a boyfriend fit, but it doesn’t have as much stretch as the Kut jacket or the Amazon jacket that I’ve been showing for awhile now. It is longer than those jackets, and I know length is something that some of y’all have been wanting in a denim jacket. I’m wearing a medium.
knit shift dress / pink fringe earrings / Free People denim jacket / sandals
This long sleeve tee is the Zella tee you’ve been seeing me in with the must have leggings. I now own this tee in this color, in white, and in black. It’s lightweight, it’s a perfectly relaxed fit, and I just love it so much.
I had it on with leggings the other day, but then I switched the leggings out for shorts and sandals as it got hotter later in the day. I’m wearing a medium in the tee.
long sleeve tee / denim shorts / camo sandals
In case you missed the post last week, here it is with the must have leggings. I’m wearing a small in the leggings.
relaxed long sleeve tee / must have leggings / Adidas sneaker
This great little t-shirt dress is ONLY $16 RIGHT NOW! The prices vary for the different colors and for different sizes…some a little more than $15, some a little less, but all really amazing deals!
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. I wanted to make sure I had room in the chest and it was long enough. I thought it was fun styled with the denim jacket and the sneakers.
v neck dress / denim jacket / gold hoops / blingy necklace / sneakers
It also looks great dressed up a bit with booties for fall.

You’ve seen most of this outfit before, but I think this is the first time you’ve seen the cardigan. It’s a great cardi. It’s got a perfectly relaxed fit, can easily be dressed up or down, and comes in 5 colors. Oh, and it’s really soft too! For size reference I’m wearing a medium here, but I definitely need a small. It was much too big and there was way too much fabric.

GRAPHIC TEES FOR SUMMER
Okay, so this flat lay has me ready for sunny days and patio drinks! You too?
Y’all know I’m a fan of a graphic tee, and over the last several years I’ve found lots of really awesome graphic tees on Amazon. I just picked up 2 more, and thought it would be fun to show lots of them together. They are all really great prices, and they are SO CUTE when paired with cut offs and sandals. I think I’ll show them all on next week, but for now, just no that they are all super soft and super cute. I wear a medium in all of them.
The shorts are from Amazon too and all under $40!
Mountain Mama tee / Happy Camper tee / Lake Life tee / sunglasses
Bring On the Sunshine tee / beaded earrings / Just Peachy Tee / bracelet set / Happy Camper tee
denim shorts (mid blue) / patent sandals / white denim shorts / camo sandals / bleach wash denim shorts / studded clear sandals
And I’m sorry, BUT I’M DYING over this one!
My hairdresser (shout out, Amanda!) told me about this tee when I was getting my hair cut last week. How perfect is it for Cinco De Mayo! The tote is from Amazon too and adorable.

HAIR SPRAY SALE
Listen up, ladies! Beauty Brands is having their annual hair spray sale and the savings are truly UNBELIEVABLE. We’re talking up to 63% OFF of popular name brands that have insanely good reviews!
Click HERE for the entire sale, or see some of my picks below…
- Sexy Hair – This gives nice hold, but still allows the hair to feel and look natural with movement. I lightly spray my hair when it’s in my hot rollers to set the curl, and it helps the curls stay all day!
- After Party – I received this as a free gift with the purchase of 4 hair sprays, but the free gift has now changed and you can see it at the top of the landing page (it’s a Tigi texturizing and styling spray).
- Healthy Sexy Hair – This hairspray is a light hold hairspray that is weightless and provides both shine and hold.
- Chi Infra Texture – This spray gives lift, movement, texture, and control while providing protection against moisture and humidity.
- Bed Head Master Piece – I consider this to be a very strong hold hairspray. I use it to spray my bangs in place, but I wouldn’t use it on my entire head. It totally sets my bangs the way I like them and keeps them in place, but I like a softer hold (like #3) for the rest of my hair.
If you’re not looking for a specific product, and you’re just looking for a great deal, I suggest heading to the site. Look at the ratings and read the reviews for all the hairsprays and dry shampoos. Most of the products have hundreds of reviews and provide lots of great information.
And y’all! This tarte mascara is drastically discounted right now on the Beauty Brands site as well. It’s regularly $23, but right now it’s ONLY $12! Y’all know that I have never really fallen in love with a mascara, but I’m thinking I could fall in love with this mascara. I received it earlier this week and have worn it all week, but I want to wear it for an extended period of time before I give it my full endorsement. I love the brush because it separates my lashes, and I love that the product goes on without clumping and allows you to build on it. It doesn’t flake, and so far I’m a fan.
Cute pics are always a favorite for me.
Here’s Carter and his friend Ben after soccer last weekend. They played great and won, so they were happy boys.
This is Bennett. HOW FLIPPING CUTE IS HE. He’s Conner’s youngest and the boy is adorable.
If you follow me on instagram, then you might have already seen this picture of the pups and their LASER FOCUS….
on the Nothing Bundt Cakes. Haha!
The Colleen Rothschild BEST SELLERS SALE is going down right now! Lots of my favorites are included, and they are all 25% OFF right now! Go see what’s available, and let me know if you have any questions!
Click HERE if you want to go to the post where Colleen Rothschild herself answered our questions! She talks about a lot of the best sellers that are included in the sale.
First and foremost, you know the Radiant Cleansing Balm is THE product from Colleen Rothschild that I cannot live without. I’ve been screaming and shouting about it for about 6 years now, so I feel confident y’all know about it.
I have a couple of relatively new products (I think both of them are actually new to me this year) that I swear by now as well.
These Glycolic Acid Peel Pads are FINALLY back in stock. I added them into my weekly routine last year, 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 and then again. PEOPLE LOVE THEM.
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.
WEEK IN REVIEW

Girl, I love that “mountain mama” tshirt, but. I am convinced I would feel like I was wearing a typo all day . . .even though I know it’s an acceptable spelling. Hello, “Mamma Mia!!”
Ashley Royer says
Hey Sheaffer! The second Anthropologie top, that you are showing next week, is on sale for a limited time! Thanks for great content, as always!
Ashley! Thank you so much for the heads up and the sweet words! I actually went and added two pics of me in the top to the post! xoxo
Shay Shull says
I want every.single.one. of those t-shirts!!
Erika Slaughter says
Me too, Shay!! I ordered the Mamacita! It’s on its way to me. Slaughter’s have a lot of nicknames and that’s one of mine!
Lisa G. says
I couldn’t help myself and the Anthro blouse you were saving for next week jumped into my cart. It also qualifies for free shipping…
Lisa, I GET IT. I too was powerless. The Free Shipping should definitely have pushed you over the edge. 😉 xoxo
Mama Cita was out of stock in my size…but I’m going to check back for it. It’s cute and I have a trip to Texas planned this summer – would be so cute to wear!
Gail W says
Just got back from a curbside pickup at Nordy’s (best thing ever, BTW!). I got the Vigoss jeans and OM friggin’ G, they are awesome!! I’m a 2 or 4, depending on the make/style/last nights taco count. I got the 4 as the 2 was not in stock. I’m hoping they don’t stretch out as they are a bit big in the waist. Regardless, these are fantastic jeans that everyone needs!
Thanks again for the fabulous rec – spot on as usual!! 🙂
So happy you love them too, Gail! I’ve been wearing them a ton! I just feel cool in them. 🙂 xoxo
That mascara is THE BEST! I keep trying others, but go back to that one!
Okay, good to know! Thanks, Brenda! I’m excited that I might genuinely love a mascara!
