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!
LOFT has incredible markdowns all over the site!
Let’s start with this SUNSET sweater. It’s 50% OFF right now and ADORABLE!
SUNSET sweater / sea green hoop earrings / dainty necklace / sea green necklace / denim shorts sold out / straw bag / cognac sandals
It’s soft knit, lightweight, and I love it paired with denim shorts.
The vibrant SUNSET graphic is so much fun. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
These are the sunglasses that I highlighted earlier this week in my STMT Tried and True Summer Favorites post! AND THEY ARE ONLY $12.99!!!
SUNSET sweater / sunglasses / sea green hoop earrings / dainty necklace / sea green necklace / denim shorts sold out / straw bag / cognac sandals
And the sandals? Although not from LOFT, I would like to strongly encourage you to add them to your closet. They are sooooooooo good. Soft real leather, a beautiful cognac color, a great strappy look, and very comfy! I LOVE THEM. They remind me very much of a Madewell sandal, and they also come in a metallic champagne color that looks awesome. True to size for me.
SERIOUSLY. I LOVE THEM.

Okay, let’s continue with the LOFT sale.
This cardi is 50% OFF! It’s really soft and a great basic to have in your closet. It also comes in black, white, and lime. I’m wearing a small.
And here it is with white jeans, also 50% OFF.
peplum tank / v neck cardigan /dainty necklace / sea green necklace / earrings / see above for bracelets / white jeans / cognac slides on Amazon HERE and the Sam Edelman site HERE
This lavender sweater is one of their sale on sale items. We’re talking HUGE savings!
It’s pretty clear that I’m really loving a lightweight sweater paired with shorts these days. Because it is so lightweight, I’ll be able to wear it all the way through the summer. There are high slits on the side, but not high enough that they show bare skin. For size reference, I’m wearing a small, and it’s still quite oversized, but I like the super relaxed fit.
lavender sweater / denim shorts / statement earrings / dainty necklace / sea green necklace / sandals (size up a 1/2)
This peasant top is 50% OFF. It can be worn ON the shoulder (on the left) or OFF the shoulder (on the right). I like the versatility, and I love the spice color. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. It also comes in white.
peasant top / fringe raffia bag / denim shorts / cuff bracelet / statement earrings / dainty necklace / sea green necklace / sandals
Right now this tee is 50% OFF, making it ONLY $12.25!!!
I love a basic tee, and I love a pretty floral pattern, and this top gives me both! For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.

OTHER SALE ITEMS
As of Thursday night, both the top and the shorts were ON SALE! Fingers crossed they still are!
I fell IN LOVE with THIS TOP the moment I saw it. And then I put it on AND I BECAME OBSESSED. This lilac color is gorgeous (it also comes in mustard and white). The puff sleeves, the little ruffles on the sleeves, and the eyelet are all so sweet and feminine. It’s a great top. It feels special, and it’s only $24.99 (before the sale!). And it’s 100% cotton.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small. Definitely size down if between sizes. The top itself is cut pretty large, so I will always wear a 1/2 tuck with it to give me some shape.
The eyelet holes are pretty open and I figured I was definitely going to wear a cami with it. Although you of course could wear a cami (and maybe should depending on where you are going), I actually didn’t feel I was exposing anything by not wearing a cami.
Let’s have a moment with the shorts. They are $18 and they have fantastic reviews. They are very distressed, but I dig the look. I totally recommend sizing up 1 (I’m wearing the 6s). The fabric is soft with a bit of stretch.
And get this! My sunglasses are the QUAY beauties that you’ve been seeing on me for a couple of years now (I have the tortoise and the black). And they are BUY ONE GET ONE FREE right now!

Last Friday I highlighted my new studded sandals for the first time (click HERE to see them styled with shorts). I got several questions on if they would look good with jeans because of the ankle strap, so I posted this picture on social media to show you that they are definitely good with ankle jeans too! (Sorry, the rest of the outfit is sold out.)
I also posted this poll on instagram stories because I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my new LV. I explained on stories that I have a whole post written about this bag and I had actually published it back in March, but I took it down after it had been live about 20 minutes. I decided it was insensitive at that time (at the beginning of the pandemic) to be posting on how to buy a designer bag. However, I’ve been getting so many questions about the bag lately, so I wanted to see if y’all were ready to hear about it. It looks like most of you are curious and ready, so I’ll be deciding soon when that post will go live.
Here’s another shot with the bag, with my new drawstring shorts and studded sandals.

SANDAL ROUND UP
In addition to the studded sandals above, this month I’ve been talking about 2 other pairs of sandals as well. I love and highly recommend all 3 pairs.
Here’s a close up again of the studded sandals. True to size, comfy, and the perfect amount of edgy!
I got these strappy cognac sandals late last week. They are darling, super affordable, and very comfy. (These are the sandals I’m wearing above with the SUNSET sweater at the beginning of the post.)
They are very Madewell-esque, and they look and feel much more expensive than they are. They are real leather and I just love them. Plus, they are a fantastic deal for under $35!
Nobody is as surprised as me, but I’m really enjoying these patent sandals. I initially ordered them only because there were lots of readers asking for reviews on them. I don’t normally love sandals that go between my toes (I don’t love my toes), and so I just assumed these wouldn’t be for me. Well, you know what they say about assuming.
They have a padded foot bed so they are comfy, the piece between my toes doesn’t bother me at all (as it often does in flip flops), and I love the neutral patent so much (although it does come in lots of other color choices as well).
I would recommend sizing up a 1/2. These are also under $35!

And how could I forget the cross body bag straps?
The camo and leather bag strap is one of my favorites!
And this striped strap is my other favorite. It’s officially the “yellow” option. The rest of the outfit is old and no longer available.
I almost forget about the rainbow bag strap! So fun!
TOM AND SHERI’S IRONING SPRAY CODE
There’s a code on the site for the ironing spray, but they’ve given STMT readers an exclusive code that is even better!
Discount: 25% off orders over $50 and FREE SHIPPING!
If you don’t spend $50, you can still get 20% OFF site wide with the code USA.

Y’all. This stuff is soooo good. I cannot go without it, and I keep hearing the same thing over and over from y’all. Nobody believes it at first, but after trying it y’all become believers too!
So here’s what you do. Hang up your wrinkled clothes, take several passes over them with the spray, give the clothes a couple of tugs, and then let them dry. THE WRINKLES DISAPPEAR. Y’all. THEY DISAPPEAR.
When I’m getting ready to shoot outfits, I hang all the clothes on the stocking holders on the fireplace, and I spray everything with the ironing spray. Here’s a before picture.
romper / puff sleeve tee / dress
And here’s the AFTER picture! LADIES! LOOK AT THESE RESULTS! I mean, I may never pick up an iron again! The ingredients are non-toxic, and the solution smells great too (but they’ve recently added a no scent option as well). And when thinking about travel, I no longer have to carry my steamer out of town. I pop the little travel bottle in my suitcase, I’ll hang my clothes up and spray them upon arrival, and then they are ready to go when I am!
When I first introduced you to the spray a couple of years ago, this is the picture I used. This top is sooooooooooo hard to iron, and I used to not wear it as often as I would like, simply because I didn’t want to iron it.
WELL. The spray works like a freaking charm on it. (Make sure you check on instastories over the weekend. I’m going to upload videos of me using this awesome spray!)
For the holiday weekend, take 10% OFF + FREE SHIPPING on all order over $100 using code FIREWORKS (ends on Sunday at 11:59 p.m. CST).
This camo bag is my favorite Barrington bag I own, and I own quite a few.
Here it is in action!
white sweater / wooden tassel necklace / earrings/ denim shorts / camo bag / cognac sandals
This striped beauty is probably my second favorite.
And how cute is this peplum tee? She’s got tiers, a cute little relaxed fit, tiny little gathers, and comes in 7 colors.

KENDRA SCOTT SALE
There is a HUGE sale going on at Kendra Scott right now. HUGE. I love this necklace, especially the mixed metal option. These earrings are gorgeous, totally boho, and I love them. But you really just need to check out the sale for yourself. Some items are up to 60% OFF!
THE MAXI IS BACK in a handful of sizes and colors!
And to jog your memory…
I’M. FULL. BLOWN. OBSESSED.
The red is so vibrant and it fits like a dream. It’s flowy, it’s fully lined, it drapes beautifully, and it’s soooooo soft!
The straps are adjustable (which is amazing) and it has some give to it as well (with a bit of elastic on the back), which I appreciate. At 5’4″, I’m in a regular small and wearing 3″ wedges. If wearing with flat shoes, a petite small would be better. It’s even possible that an xs or an xs petite would work on me, so I would definitely suggest sizing down.
I’ve dressed it up here with gold jewelry and wedges, but it would also be cute dressed way down with Converse and a ball cap, or even as a beach cover up!

The wrap dress was restocked too!
First of all, the dress is a color block pattern in a gorgeous pink and beautiful red. #yesplease
Second of all, the silhouette is incredibly flattering. #yesplease
Third of all, the feminine ruffle at the neck is adorable. #yesplease
And finally, the little bow at the waist is darling. #yesplease
Oh, wait. One more thing. IT HAS POCKETS.

The dress is DARLING, it’s made of a crisp cotton poplin, and I feel great in it.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium, which is true to size for me in a dress like this (because I need the room in the chest). Unless you need extra room like me, I would suggest sizing down.
I appreciate that there’s a little snap on the bust to guard against a wardrobe malfunction. And the cut is so flattering to the arms and shoulders.

AN STMT MISS
So this dress is obviously a NO for me….but gosh, I wish it was a yes! Sadly, the small is wayyyy too tight on my chest (seen below), but I fear the medium would be too big everywhere else. I still wanted to show it because I think it could be really great for a lot of you! I often have difficulty with things pulling that button up, but if you don’t have that issue, you should be good.
And it’s 50% OFF!!!!!
Just in case you need a closer look. The buttons are STRESSED, but the dress is great!
COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD SALE
EVERYTHING is 20% OFF at Colleen Rothschild this weekend with the code FIREWORKS.
I know I have so many loyal Colleen users that I make it a point to mention a sale every time I see one.
The cleansing balm has always been my #1 product. And the jumbo cleansing balm (not pictured) is back in stock and is an amazing value!
Just look around on the site to see what products you would like to try! Their product descriptions are awesome and the reader reviews are so helpful!
MY NEW FAVORITE SNACK
This combo is my new FAVORITE snack. The Trader Joe’s Everything crackers are so crunchy and flavorful, and I’m addicted to the Boar’s Head Tzatziki dip. (FYI: I tried the Trader Joe’s Tzatziki dip, but I like this Boar’s Head dip much better.)

Erika Slaughter says
Sheaffer, you need to wear that red maxi ON REPEAT!! Gorgeous, friend!
Just wanted you tell you that I found that colorful “striped bag” from Amazon for 40% off at Accessory Concierge. The price with shipping was less than amazon and supporting small business is a bonus! And it shipped the next day.
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for the heads up on the Colleen sale! I’m close to being out on two of my favorite products (the balm and the glycolic pads), so I grabbed them!
I bought the ironing spray because of you sometime last year and it has been a God send! We love that stuff, and even my teenage boys use it all the time! I also bought those Amazon strappy sandals last week. They came in a couple of days ago and they are everything you said they were! I can’t believe how awesome they are and that they are so inexpensive!
LOVE hearing this, Katie! The ironing spray is magical, and the sandals really are SO GOOD! xoxo
Oooo- love a good sale to spice up the low laying weekend! Can you please share the brand and color of lipgloss you are wearing with the orange shell ruffle top and Calypso beaded earrings? Looks so great with your smile! Thank you! xoxo
You’re too sweet, Megan! I’ve actually had lots of lipstick questions lately, so my post this coming Wednesday is going to be about different lipstick/gloss combos! (We are at the ranch right now and that lipstick is at home, and I can’t remember the name of it! I know it’s Charlotte Tilbury, but that’s all I can remember.) Stay tuned for Wednesday! xoxo
Cognac sandals are $45 in size 8. They seem to be a different price for each size.
So weird! Keep watching, maybe they will go down!
I want to get a Barrington bag! What size do you think is best? Is the Savannah you posted about a good size for daily use? I’m currently loving the Nordstrom black & cognac reversible bag you always post about but I’m ready for something new.
Hi, Allison! The Savannah is a great everyday bag. When I travel, I prefer the St. Anne because it’s a bit bigger, but I really do prefer the Savannah for every day use. If you are used to the size of the Nordstrom bag, you might be good with the St. Anne for everyday though since you are used to a large bag! Hope this helps! xoxo
Alison Althouse says
I’m SO glad you shared the Iron-in-a-bottle spray…. that stuff is magic! I had forgotten about it for awhile but pulled it out to fix a ruffle and have fallen back in love. <3
Also wanted to thank you SO much for sharing a “fail” and showing why it failed for you. So many people want everything to be perfect and seeing mistakes on bloggers is refreshing… thanks!!
It truly is magical! So happy you love it too, Alison! I have SO MANY FAILS :), but I rarely take the time to photograph the fails. This dress was SO GOOD I had to. I knew it would work on others, even though it obviously didn’t work on me. 😉 xoxo
Hena Tayeb says
You are so cute.. love all your outfits.
love your recommendations!! can you please share where the worn leather tote is from in the picture with the loft cardigan. thank you!!
It’s a Live FashionAble tote! I love it!
Hi! I was wondering if you’ve washed the Gibson red maxi dress yet? I ordered it thanks to you and it’s super flattering but I’m worried the material won’t wash well. Seems like it might get really wrinkly and hard to press out unless you dry clean it? I was also wondering if it’s hot? I haven’t worn mine yet still deciding if I will keep it. I was expecting a different kind of material! Thanks!
Hi, Michelle! I haven’t washed it yet because I’ve only worn it for photos since I haven’t gone anywhere. 🙁 I do think I will most probably dry clean it. But I dry clean a lot of clothes that don’t necessarily have to be dry cleaned. xoxo
