It’s Friday, so y’all know what that means! It’s time to link up with Erika, Andrea, and Narci to let everybody know what some of my favorite things are right now!
FAVORITE #1: ANSWERED PRAYERS
So y’all know I’ve been asking for prayers for my friend Jill’s son Drew. He had surgery on Monday (more on that in a sec!), and one of Jill’s friends asked for all that loved him to send in “I Love You” and “thumbs up” pictures for Drew. She made a slide show for him so he could see everybody that was praying for him, and they watched it as a family the night before his surgery. Isn’t that sweet!
He had the surgery on Monday morning, and it was a HUGE SUCCESS!!!! Drew is 100% AVM free, and we are all so thankful! THANKS BE TO GOD! I personally want to thank all of you that prayed for Drew, his doctors, and his family. We know it was the prayers that carried them through! Click HERE for Jill’s update after the surgery was completed. As always, I promise it will strengthen your faith and bless you! Take a second to go and read her beautiful words, but I want to post the continued prayer requests here: Please continue to pray for healing and a smooth recovery. Pray for pain management, discernment, and strength. Pray Drew’s nausea/vomiting goes away and he is able to move forward in meeting his post surgery milestones quickly so that we can get back home. It will take some time to assess the long term results of the surgery and any challenges that might bring. However, I am staring at my living, breathing son right this second. He has passed all neuro checks with flying colors and is fully aware of his surroundings. Drew is going to be just fine.
We Love You, Drew!!!!
FAVORITE #2: MY RAINBOW WOOD HORN NECKLACE
My new favorite necklace is THIS one c/o Accessory Concierge. AND GREAT NEWS GIRLS! YOU CAN USE THE CODE SUMMER20 for 20% OFF your entire order at Accessory Concierge for the next 48 hours – and you will see lots of their items throughout this post!!! The code was originally just for this necklace…which is why the post contains several shots of this necklace…but they decided to let it be store wide!!! WOOHOO!!!! I’m declaring this next outfit my official outfit of summer: a brightly colored tee, denim cut-offs, Shoreline Converse, and pretty much any necklace from A.C. (and this weekend you can get 20% OFF!) 😉
Here I am wearing the outfit above!
tee (my color sold out, but lots of other colors available) /rainbow wood horn necklace (20% OFF) / mini stud earrings / similar denim cut-offs ON SALE (maybe buy a size up for the boyfriend look)
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
Some other outfits (that you’ve seen before) with the necklace follow…
My $34 dress is the ivory/black combination and it is BACK IN STOCK! Now remember, there is apparently great variance in sizing (regarding length and arm hole size), but I’ve never had any trouble, and I own two (the solid back and this one). If you are 5’7″ or over, this is probably going to be way to short for you. For size reference, I’m 5’4″ and wearing a small, which is true to size for me. I love the wood horn with the stripes!
dress / MUST HAVE jacket / multi-color horn necklace (20% OFF!)/ bracelet trio /scalloped tote/ similar sandals from same maker ON SALE
Here I am wearing the necklace with another brightly colored top! For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the top, so I think it’s true to size.
top / necklace / best strapless bra EVER /my exact jeans (true to size) and similar white jeans with FABULOUS reviews /bracelet trio / watch / cognac sandals ON SALE / tote bag c/o Fashionable
And see how good it looks against a dark shirt? It really POPS! I love THIS soft and slouchy Treasure and Bond tee. It comes in several different solid and several different stripe combos. I’m wearing a small, so I think it’s true to size.
treasure and bond tee (olive green on sale HERE)/ multi color wood horn necklace (20% OFF!)/ similar jeans / bracelet trio (20% OFF with code SUMMER20) / leather tote / similar sandals
Here are some of my very favorite Accessory Concierge pieces, all 20% OFF with the code SUMMER20! Just click on the pictures you are interested in!
FAVORITE #3: MY GINGHAM POPOVER IS ON SALE!!!!!
Anthro is having their Summer Tag Sale, and I noticed that my popover is included! It was regularly $88, and now it’s on sale for $49.95! To be honest, the shirt was even worth it to me at $88! I’m wearing a 4, so I think it’s true to size. Some people say they sized down, but I’m glad I didn’t.
gingham popover / necklace (20% OFF with code SUMMER20) / earrings / sunglasses / cross body / similar jeans / similar sandals / watch
FAVORITE #4: MY FashionABLE TOTE
So, after seeing this tote in tons of pics over the last several weeks, you have to know I am FULL BLOWN OBSESSED. It’s GORGEOUS. The color, the leather, everything. People continue to stop me and ask me about it…and I continue to ADORE it. AND GUESS WHAT! I”m partnering up with FashionABLE today to do a giveaway for my exact tote! Just head to the rafflecopter at the bottom of the post to enter!!!!!
Now, CHECK THIS OUT! A couple of weeks ago, I spilled an entire bottle of water in my beloved tote and thought I had ruined it. There was a HUGE water stain, and I was just sick about it. But then I remembered my friend Carly had a similar thing happen a couple of years back, so I called her, and she told me what to do. She even wrote a post about it! Now, get ready to be amazed by some before and after pics!
Check out the water stain in the top left picture. EEEEEK! Awful, right? In the top right picture, you’ll see I put the bag in the bathtub and filled it up with water. In the bottom left picture, you can see how the water soaked through. I let it do this for about an hour or so, and then on Carly’s advice, I emptied the remaining water out. The next step (I’m not sure why I didn’t get a picture of this step) involved me turning it upside down on top of an upside down soup pot with a large pitcher stacked on top if it (on Carly’s post a reader suggested to stuff it with rolled up towels to help it maintain it’s shape) to let it dry. It dried for like 48 hours. And about 24 hours in to the process, I still thought it was going to dry the dark cognac color….and I desperately wanted it to return to the gorgeous honey color. WELL, LOOK! IT DID! Thank you Carly for being a genius!
Here are some other looks with the tote. Remember to enter for a free tote at the bottom of today’s post!
dress (some sizes have popped back up in stock!)/ necklace (code SUMMER20 will get you 20% OFF!/ UGG t-strap wedges / stud earrings
And here in a boho chic outfit! I’m wearing a medium petite in the top, because that is what they had available in store and I thought it fit good enough to get it (I didn’t want to leave the store without one!). I think actually a regular x-small would have been perfect (the regular xx small in store was a bit too small). The top is 40% OFF right now, making it $35.70!!! It would be a perfect breezy top to wear for the 4th! Actually, EVERYTHING IS 40% OFF at LOFT right now!!!
white peplum top (40% OFF right now with the code JUICY)/ wood bead ombra tassel necklace ( 20% OFF with the code SUMMER20 ) / similar jeans (these have a frayed hem)/ similar sandals from same maker / leather tote
And one more look you’ve already seen.
top / turquoise circle hoop earrings c.o. Sole Society / $18 necklace / bracelet trio /similar jeans from same maker (just a darker wash and less distressing) / leather tote
FAVORITE #5: MY CHAMBRAY STRIPE WEDGES
Click HERE for my wedges, NOW ON SALE c/o Sole Society!!!! They are FINAL SALE, but at $41.97, they are a great price for such a DARLING shoe!!! I found them to be true to size. They are quite high, but they are still comfy!
FAVORITE #6: POM POM CLUTCH
Accessory Concierge was featured on Good Morning America’s Deals and Steals yesterday. I’m thinking these will probably be sold out by mid-morning, but you can get this DARLING straw pom pom clutch for ONLY $18! Click HERE and just decide which color you want!
FAVORITE #7: LAKE DAYS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Last weekend we headed to the lake with some friends for the day. Our friends Tom and Tracy have a pontoon, and it’s so much fun! We hung out on their doc, rode around a bit, and also docked on one of the “beaches” for a couple of hours. It was a great day!
I put this on instagram (follow me HERE), and then immediately regretted using the Lo-Fi filter because it highlighted my body freckles so much! Ha!
My boys all snuggled up, which is how I find them most often. 😉
Devin and Carter had the best time. Devin is about to be in 5th grade, and Carter is about to be in 2nd, but they are more like cousins than friends…so the age difference doesn’t seem to bother them!
And since I’m a brand ambassador for Supergoop, you know I had to include a sunscreen shot! Before leaving for the lake, I applied the Supergoop CC cream applied the same way you would a tinted moisturizer! Lots of you recommended the SETTING MIST, and now I see why! Look what I learned about it on their site: Just announced as SHAPE‘s Sun Award winner for “Best Over Make-Up” category, DEFENSE REFRESH SETTING MIST SPF 50 is a unique three-in-one weightless mist that sets make-up, helps control oil & shine and refreshes your defense against photoaging UV rays. With antioxidant-rich rosemary and mint to help improve skin’s complexion and deliver an invigorating essence, this is your perfect pick-me-up for fresh, flawless, sun-safe skin throughout the day.
The MINERAL SUNSCREEN continues to be my current favorite. The whole family uses it on our faces, and I use it all over Carter’s body as well. The site says it’s great to use on baby’s sensitive skin too! After I got home, I slathered on THE BODY LOTION to combat the dryness after being in the sun all day! If you want to learn more about their amazing products, I suggest heading to the Frequently Asked Questions page on their site.
One more shot of me and my guy! I had to switch it to black and white because the pic was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to bright!
FAVORITE #8: LOFT SWING TEES
Y’all. When this tee was on sale last weekend, I bought 3 of them (olive, blue, and black). And I love them. Thought some of you would be interested! They are on sale for $14.70 a piece right now! I’m wearing a small, so I think they are true to size. And remember, EVERYTHING AT LOFT IS 40% OFF right now! Go check it out!
swing tee / turquoise hoop earrings / similar jeans (these have a frayed hem!)/ shoreline converse
FAVORITE #9: My Little Slugger
My friend Laura took this shot of Carter at one of his last baseball games! Carter saw the pic and thought he had swung too early, but he had really just hit the ball! He made a lot of progress with his batting during the season, and we were so proud of him. Thanks for the pic, Laura!
FAVORITE #10: CONTEST FOR FashionABLE LEATHER TOTE!
There are several ways to enter the contest for the tote! Follow me on instagram HERE and follow FashionAble on instagram HERE.

I love that bag! And those swing tops. Do you think they’d be some one with a long torso?
Hi Sarah! Hmmmm…..a long torso might be okay….but if you have a large chest too, that might be difficult. One or the other is probably okay, both would probably make it too short. xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂

Gail Wilson says
When you were filling that beautiful bag with water, what went through your head at that time? My thoughts would be, ‘well, there goes a gorgeous bag down the drain – literally!!) Can’t believe how great it looks after it dried.
Great to hear that Drew is on the road to recovery! Please keep us posted on when you can.
I wanted to ask, how is Carter doing with the loss of his sweet pup? With all the free time in summer, I’m sure he is thinking about him a lot.
Hi, Gail! I was FLIPPING OUT when filling the bag with water!!!! Carter is doing okay. We all miss him terribly, but Chris and I continue to have a harder time than Carter has been having. We all just miss him so much! Thanks for asking! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂

I wish the gingham popover was still available in your color. The other colors just don’t do much for me.
Sharon C. says
Love the bag!
Love the bag! I wonder if that trick would work on a bag I have with some water stains. My parents got it for me from Italy; I don’t think it’s the same exact type of leather as your bag. It’s more suede like. Hmmmmm. Have a great weekend!
LOVE the tote!!! Also, on the rafflecopter I put in my IG name wrong. It’s lindsaywoods_ 🙂
Di Bennett says
Nice tote! I’d love it!

Love the tote and your tip to save it. I had an all leather Jon Hart bag twenty years ago, and it had a water stain….wish I could have saved it!
Thanks for the reviews on so many products! The SuperGoop really sounds amazing ? My family is at the beach/pool a lot and I hate putting sunscreen on my face over and over. It feels so gross!
Love the bag! I need a new diaper bag desperately
So excited for a chance to win!
Lori Helms says
I’m so glad to hear that Drew’s surgery was a success. I’ll be sending prayers for a speedy recovery. I love your tankini in the Lake picture…do you mind sharing the details on it.
Hi, Lori! Thank you for the prayers! The tankini is actually from Target, but it is a couple of years old. So sorry! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Carly T says
Glad Drew is doing well. And you are killing me with that necklace!!!!!
You are the cutest. Thank you for providing outfit inspo for all of us! Glad your friend had some prayers answered- more on the way! Thank goodness you were able to save your beautiful bag!

Lisa Y says
I ❤️ your blog and the bag!! Thanks for sharing!!
Great news about Drew!!!!! Love the purse!
Thank You Lord for answered prayers! Happy Day! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome bag!
I just wanted to thank you for bringing Supergoop to my attention!! I’m HIGHLY allergic to most sunblocks and I emailed Supergoop to ask about ingredients and return policies. They responded IMMEDIATELY and told me to try the mineral sunblock. I did and IM NOT ALLERGIC!! Woohoo! I was so happy about this, that I bought the CC cream and the setting mist and I’m not allergic to those either!! Oh happy day!
I got a sample of the hand cream with SPF and I gave that to my mom since she gardens a lot.
I’m very curious about the spf chapstick they have, but i’m MORE hesitant about that since my lips react way more to spf allergies than my face/body.
Anyway, thanks for the great tip on Supergoop!
Angele LaFontaine says
Love the bag! Fashionable and versitile!
what a great bag!
You should have your son’s baseball pic blown up in black and white poster size @ Staples. I just did this with my Senior XC runner. He’s taking it for wall decor @ college! Hope to win the tote, but I just screwed up and put my Pinterest name in the Instagram slot! Lol. Mommy brain (x4)!!!
love this bag!
love this giveaway!!
Hope I win. 🙂
I love the color of the leather. You can tell that it’s amazing quality. I checked out FashionAble on Facebook and also fell in love with their saddle bag. So happy that Drew is AVM free! What a relief to his family and friends.
Thanks for Super Goop recommendation! Just dropped a bundle!
On another note…I bought the Jo Malone cologne last week for my husband for Father’s day and one for me. LOVE them!!! I have been wearing his too! So crazy how the scents mix so well! Thank for all the great tips!

This had me laughing. I totally know it’s just a typo and an oversight, meant to say “purse”, but “thanks for the opportunity to win a beautifully made person” still sounds really funny.

Thanks for the giveaway!
I LOVE your blog! I started following for Bachelor/ette posts but realized I love all of your fashion posts too! Almost every time you post something from Nordstrom, I shop. Being a newlywed, my husband wasn’t too thrilled with that at first. ? BUT I’ve officially gotten HIM hooked too! He has me order Kiehl’s products from Nordstrom because we don’t live near a store that carries their products. Hoping to win the giveaway to show him how much good can come from following fashion blogs! ?

Jenny R. says
What a blessing and praise to hear about your friend’s son! We have a friend who’s four year old son is fighting a fatal brain tumor and another who’s teenage son had their leg amputated a few months ago in hopes of it containing the cancer but unfortunately it’s spread with no more treatment options. These are the hardest and bravest fights I’ve ever seen and it breaks my heart that any parent should ever have to worry and see such suffering. I’m so glad your friend’s son was spared and she is no longer facing this sadness.
We’ve faced our share of medical bills over the years for girls with compromised immune systems, and I’m so incredibly grateful everything is treatable and manageable even if it’s expensive, so winning this tote would be awesome because I never splurge on myself anymore.
Micah Tjeerdsma says
I adore that bag, but I am THRILLED to hear about the great surgery results!! Praise the Lord!!!
Alexis deZayas says
Going to order the Loft top now! 🙂
Samantha S says
That tote is a beauty!! I’ve been on the hunt for a new purse, preferably a tote, and I like how the leather on this one looks to be of a high quality. Plus, after checking out FashioAble’s website, I appreciate the company’s mission and impact in the local and global community.
