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!
I’m so excited to be doing Friday Favorites this week! I haven’t participated in this link up in awhile, and I’m happy to be sharing some new favorites with y’all……and there are some GREAT ones today!
Let’s start out with this DARLING tee and awesome skirt!
I’ve had the You are My Sunshine tee for just under a week, and I’ve already worn it twice (you’ll see it with jeans in a minute)! It’s super soft and a great fit. It has a total vintage feel, and I have great memories of singing this song to Carter when he was a baby. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium in the tee. Oh, and it’s ONLY $16.99 and Amazon Prime eligible! (One point about the tee…it says it’s “grey”, but I think it’s much more of a heathered brown.)
*UPDATE: The tee keeps selling out, but I keep finding new links. The tee I have linked now also shows a sleeveless version!
And look how cute it is with my Kut From The Kloth denim skirt! As a KUT brand ambassador, I’ve tried a couple of styles that I might not have tried on my own, and I’m so happy that I gave this skirt a chance. I think it’s totally modern, but a little bit retro at the same time! I would suggest sizing up in the skirt. I’m wearing a 6 here.
And you’ll notice that I’m wearing my new camo bag strap too! Remember to use the code STMTbagstrap for 30% OFF. AND fyi for all of you Accessory Concierge fans out there…they have officially changed their shipping fee and policy! Shipping is now just a standard $4 (it used to be $6), and now they pay for returns. AWESOME!

Another update! I just found another link for the tee that comes in several colors! Look at this great blue! It also comes in grey and black. Click HERE for the tee!!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this one holds stock!
After showing you the above strap, you need to make sure you you hop over to my bag strap post on Monday if you haven’t already seen it. I highlighted these 5 straps, showed several different ways to style each strap, and gave you a 30% OFF code! Use the code STMTbagstrap to get the 30% OFF!
Click HERE to see all the straps and all the outfits!
And because I can’t stop switching out my straps, I’ve got one more outfit for you that wasn’t on Monday’s post…
Look how cute the rainbow strap is with the embroidered tee from Cassie’s resort collection! This is the tee that I have (AND LOVE!) in all 4 colors.

Did y’all see my April Amazon haul? It was the best one yet, and I still have a handful of new things to share.
These items were things I ordered for April’s post, but they didn’t arrive in time, and I don’t want to wait until May’s Haul to show them to you because I’m afraid they might be gone by then!
First up, the You are My Sunshine tee you just saw above! Isn’t it SO CUTE? Again, it’s soft as can be and I’m wearing a medium.
I loved it with my new Ab-Solution skinny jeans. For those of you that are already Ab-Solution lovers, then I know you don’t need any convincing to grab these for yourself.
You are My Sunshine tee/ square beaded earrings / Ab-Solution skinny jeans (plus size Ab-Solution skinny jeans!) / reversible cognac tote / bandana / slide sandals
If you aren’t yet familiar with Ab-Solution technology, here’s what you need to know: IT’S FREAKING MAGIC. The stretchy waistbands are crazy comfortable, and they suck you in without being constricting. They just make you look and feel great.
You can click HERE to see all the jeans available with the technology, but the pair below is absolutely perfect for summer. I love the light wash and the frayed hem.
I’m wearing my regular 4s, but size down if between sizes.

Continuing with Amazon…
I actually already had these before April’s post, but I totally forgot to include these undies! Awhile back I asked on instastories if there were certain Amazon finds that were y’alls favorites, and several of you raved about these undies. So I got them. #yalltoldmeto
And y’all were right. They’re good. And I can’t believe the price! They are very soft, very light weight, and they stay put! AND THEY ARE CHEAP! Click HERE for the undies.
I love the color and the look of these pjs, but to be honest, the material feels strange. It almost feels like a thin swimsuit material? It says they are 100% polyester, but I really wish they were cotton. Still, I’m showing them because they are so dang cute! Just know that I think the material is weird.
They do run small. I’m wearing a medium here and probably could have sized up to the large.
And how about this super casual tie dyed maxi? I’m wearing it with wedges here, but looking at the picture, I think it would be much cuter worn casually with flat sandals or even Converse. I love the pockets, the v neck, and the overall fit.
It is stretchy and light weight, but it’s not see thru. And I like how it’s not baggy, but it’s also not form fitting at all. You could wear this dress out and about, you could wear it to the beach, it would be awesome for travel days, and you could also just lounge around in it at home. This is a great dress!
If you click to the site and scroll down to read the reviews, you will see lots of different pictures of the dress on lots of different body types!

HOW CUTE IS THIS SUIT! It comes in lots of patterns and colors, but this one is my favorite and I’m thinking I need to give it a try.
I tried a Boden swimsuit last year, but the one I ordered was too small. And by the time I tried to go order the size up, it was sold out of the size I needed.
Click HERE for the suit below. Click HERE to see all Boden swimsuits.
I put the above suit on Facebook earlier this week, and I had a handful of helpful reader comments on Boden swimsuits. After reading the comments, I definitely think I need to order one to give another try.
Boden suits are the only suits I buy- quality is amazing and they fit super well. I always size up one size and it’s perfect. They last for years! – Colleen
I don’t have this super cute suit, but have several others from Boden. However I typically get my normal swim size. Boden customers tend to leave detailed feedback about fit and fabric, so always read reviews! – Kristen
I bought this style last year and am contemplating adding this one too! I sized up 2 sizes, but I have a pretty long torso. – Amber
I tried this suit and would say to size up 1 size and order the tall if you are not short waisted. I really liked the style, but it isn’t very supportive for ladies with a large bust. – Haley
I have this in black and love it! I always order at least 1 Boden swimsuit a year! – Katy
My quarterly Vine Oh! box arrived and it’s FABULOUS. These boxes are a home run favorite!
I’ve heard from several readers that have previously taken advantage of the TOLDME code, and everybody has been incredibly impressed with their boxes! With the code, you can get the below box for just $49.99 right now (and it’s a $148 value)! And remember…in addition to the box below, you can actually get an additional free bottle of wine (that’s 3 bottles total)!
In order to get this $49.99 deal, you do have to sign up for a quarterly subscription service, and the offer is valid on new subscriptions only. BUT LADIES, it’s totally worth it. And here’s a PRO TIP: You can change the shipping address each quarter! Keep all 4 for yourself (I mean, you deserve it!), OR you can keep one for yourself and then send 1 to your mom, and then your sister, and then your bestie! How much fun is that!
Click HERE to see pictures and a video of an unboxing! The box includes 2 full size bottles of wine and 5 full size curated items. Order by noon on Monday, May 6th for Mother’s Day delivery!
Here’s my box! And you can see that the code gets you an extra bottle of wine!
Boxes are selling out – so the offer good while supplies last! Make sure you head to instastories, because I’m going to upload some videos of my unboxing this weekend!
I’m posting this next picture for 2 reasons: 1) I want you to get excited about my first Sephora Haul that will go live on Monday! I hid the new products with hearts, but I will go ahead and tease that this product that I’m mixing with my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream gives my face a wonderful healthy glow! It’s definitely a new favorite! And this product is making my hair sooooo shiny. 2) I also wanted to show this picture to give me the chance to link my new makeup organizers that I grabbed from Amazon! I bought them specifically to have nice and clean organizers that could be photographed in my Sephora post, AND NOW I’M SO HAPPY TO HAVE THEM. I know you can’t see them very well in these pictures, but click HERE for the 360 degree spinning makeup organizer on the left and HERE for the large acrylic organizer on the right. They are truly amazing, and I’m actually keeping everything in the correct place!
I haven’t talked about Brandless for a bit, but I’m still using AND LOVING so many of their products. If you are new here, click over to see the first post I did with Brandless and to learn what they are all about!
Here is my order this month. I have a couple of tried and true favorites below, and I have some new favorites.
And I have a code for you! The code STMTfreebie will get you the dark chocolate fruit and nut trail mix for free! It’s DELICIOUS and one of my Top 3 favorite products from Brandless. There’s no minimum order to get you the free gift, but you will qualify for free shipping at $48, so I recommend hitting that minimum with your cart for the best value!
organic extra virgin olive oil spray / gluten free lemon pound cake mix / siracha roasted peas / roasted green peas / dried fruit and nut salad topper / dark chocolate fruit and nut trail mix / edamame and cashew salad topper
honeycrisp apple chips / teriyaki beef jerky
Here are some other new favorites for me!
The organic women’s gummy multivitamin is AWESOME. They are organic, vegan fruit-flavored gummy multivitamins that deliver intake of 8 essential vitamins and nutrients that help support immune health. And I love that they are an excellent source of Vitamin D since my blood work shows I’m always low.
And here’s the best part: THEY ARE DELICIOUS. I’ve even caught Chris sneaking some. They have men’s and kid’s vitamins too, so I’ll definitely be grabbing those as well. I’ve actually decided to go ahead and sign up for their subscription program for these!

from top to bottom: vegan foundation brush / vegan powder brush / vegan blush brush
And look how pretty the lemon pound cake is! I cooked it a little too long, but the flavor was still great. And I’m in love with the Brandless pans and kitchen tools.

Here’s one of my favorite at home lunches. I combine fresh Asian style vegetables and frozen cauliflower rice from Trader Joe’s. I stir fry it all up with some of the teriyaki sauce marinade, I top it with a fried egg, and then I drizzle some sesame ginger dressing on top. YUM!!!

I truly love the company, what they stand for, and their products! Go check out Brandless for yourself, and don’t forget to use the code to get your free treat!
If you’re local, I’ve got some great news for you!
After my Amazon post last week, I got a lot of questions about what self tanner I use. Well, although I do have a self tanner that I use and love, I realllllllly love getting spray tans every so often.
I found a place that I love in McKinney (on the recommendation of a friend), and you local girls need to try it! It’s called Suddenly Sunless, it’s located at Custer and 380 (to the right of Cherry Berry), and they do a fantastic job.
AND GET THIS! If you tell them that I sent you (just tell them Sheaffer told you to!), you can get the DiamondDrying Powder (an $8 value) FOR FREE with the purchase of any regular price session, package, or membership. The drying powder is a game changer y’all. They use a big kabuki brush, cover your whole body in the powder after they spray you, and it takes all the sticky out!
You can book your “Custom Air Brush” appointment HERE. And when you arrive, just tell them the code to get the free DiamondDrying powder! YOU WILL LOVE IT. And you’ll never get a spray tan without the powder again. It’s totally worth the $8, but FREE is awesome!
The picture below is what prompted a lot of the “how do you tan?” questions. I took this picture 2 days after my last spray tan. I think it looks very natural!
palm print off the shoulder blouse / beaded square earrings / denim shorts (similar shorts for under $15!)/ white frayed hem shorts/ round rattan cross body / slide sandals/ multicolor bracelet / solid bracelet
Colleen Rothschild products are a fantastic idea for Mother’s Day gifts, and you can click HERE for a lot of specials they have right now.
And you can click HERE for my previous Colleen Rothschild post where Colleen Rothschild herself TOLD ME TO!
Let’s wrap the post up with a couple of more outfits that I’ve worn in the past couple of weeks.
You’ve seen this dress on me in the black and white stripes, and Gibson was nice enough to send me the pink and white striped version as well! This particular colorway is almost sold out, but lots of other colors are still stocked. It is softer than you can imagine and just incredibly cute. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
And great news! The green earrings are back in stock! You first saw them on me when I styled them with the leopard button down HERE.
ruffle racer back dress / green earrings / must have jacket / cognac slide sandals
You’ve already seen this blush cardi a handful of times, but check out my new Barrington tote! I love the navy stripes, the blonde leather, and the pink and coral monogram! And remember, you can always use the code STMTSAVE10 for 10% OFF your Barrington order!
If you’ve never played around on their site, you definitely need to do so. You choose your piece (a bag, laptop case, sunglasses case, makeup bag, etc), you choose a background pattern, you choose your monogram color scheme, and you choose your monogram style. It is so much fun!

Whew, that’s all for today! Have a wonderful weekend with your people!
Sheaffer, a recommendation for you and camo-loving readers: the Universal Thread v-neck tee from Target. I love these Monterey tees, and great price! These run slightly large so size towards the smaller end of your range. You will live in the camo tee! Happy weekend.
such a good rec., I bought this one too and went back to get another I loved it so much!
Shay Shull says
Sheaffer, you look ADORABLE in that tee with those jeans and your hair up! Adorable!
Those palm print jammies are the cutest thing ever. Ever! How fun!!
When you spray tan – do you do a booth or where the person sprays you?
Hi, Allison! A person sprays me!!!! 🙂
Like someone else said, you look so cute in the you are my sunshine tee and jeans with your hair up! You look so young with your hair pulled up like that too! Happy Friday!
Beth Miller says
I went to look at the undies on Amazon, then scrolled down to the “Customers who bought this item also bought” section. It was FULL of all of yours and Cassie’s recommendations! I was scrolling thinking “have that” “have that too”!!! So funny!
That’s so funny, Beth!
Erika Slaughter says
I have those exact same palm print pajamas and you’re so right….the fabric is different. The fabric is very cool though so I think they’ll be great for summer months.
I love the tie dye dress! What size are you wearing? Thanks!
Sorry! It’s a small!
Sarah Null says
I love the palm print off shoulder shirt but need a bigger size than listed. Have you seen any plus size ones or ones that come in XL or 2X? For reference I am 200 lb usually sz 14-16. Thanks!
Hi, Sarah! Not off the top of my head, but I’ll keep my eyes peeled! xoxo
Amy J says
Do you think the Ab-Solution jeans could be cut? They are about 2″ too long for this shortie. I was thinking with the raw hem it might be okay? What do you think?
Hi, Amy! I have a super stylish friend that always cut her jeans, so I think it would be okay! Especially with the frayed hem! xoxo, Sheaffer 🙂
Amy J says
I cut the jeans! I LOVE them! Now they hit me correctly on the ankles with no bunching at the knees. I love the Ab-Solution jeans. I own 4 pair now!
Awesome to hear, Amy! Thanks for the feedback! xoxo
