and I REALLY hope that somebody out there can help me.
I have no idea why, but my blog isn’t updating properly in Google Reader or in Bloglovin.
Can somebody PLEASE help me?
If you are a blogger, I know you understand how terrible this is!
Please leave a comment if you think you can help me…
or e-mail directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fingers crossed that somebody out there can get this straightened out for me!
Okay…Now It’s time to Get Pinspired!
You can grab the code on my sidebar!
This was the initial inspiration photo I found.
So, this is what I put together:
Denim Shirt | J Crew Factory
GREAT denim shirt on sale at Nordstrom that is on sale for $31!
Click HERE for the shirt.
The sale is almost over, so don’t miss this deal.
It will be great all through the summer with floral jeans, white jeans, colored skinny jeans, or shorts.
And it will of course be awesome through fall and winter too.
I love to wear mine open over a white tank.
Under $40 for a year round shirt is a total steal!
Floral Jeans | Nordstrom
I could never find these jeans online, so I have some options for you:
Several options from GAP that are all on sale! Click HERE!
(All of the items on sale at GAP are an additional 30% off right now!)
HERE are a pair for under $30 in the Nordstrom junior’s department that are so cute!
There is a blue on blue pair HERE that is still totally affordable!
Thee pattern looks like dogwood blooms to me.
Or what about a pair of floral shorts? Click HERE. I like how these have an elastic waist.
Click HERE for a pair that are a really cool color combo.
HERE is a pair of DKNY floral jeans from Macy’s
Or what about this muted pair of Michael Kors floral jeans? On sale HERE.
Pink Belt| GAP outlet (not online)
I found THIS great belt that comes in several different colors, including a pink that
looks identical to mine.
Click HERE for the belt.
I think my belt really helps pull the above outfit together. I have several colored belts, and I find myself reaching for them all the time. If you don’t have at least 1, you need to get one!
The belt is under $30 and has lots of great reviews!
And I was wearing THESE TOMS.
I’ve only had these shoes for 3 weeks, and even if I never wear them again, I’ve already gotten my $ worth out of them. Don’t forget to get THESE no-show socks for your TOMS. They are a must.
And remember to order a 1/2 size down in the shoes since they stretch!
Now it’s SALE time.
Got an e-mail from LOFT this morning!
40% off of all full price styles (including new arrivals) with code WOW40!
AND $50 in savings cards with your $50 full price purchase!
Click HERE to shop!
Okay…so this is the LAST time I’m mentioning this…..
If you haven’t shopped the Nordstrom sale yet, DO IT!
DO IT NOW!
The sale ends this weekend and you don’t want to miss out!!!
I have received sooooooo many e-mails, facebook messages, and blog comments from you ladies this week telling me about what you have purchased for yourselves.
You guys have been shopping like it’s your job.
You are my people.
(And I love that you are reaching out to me and telling me!)
Everything is going…….going……..gone………….
I thought I would highlight the things that seem to be
everybody’s favorites after reading all of your messages:
Y’all have gone MK CRAZY!
Apparently we all LOVE a beautiful watch, and some of you ladies were TOTALLY PSYCHED to score such an awesome watch at an awesome price.
Sadly, it seems that there were only a small number available in each style, so some of you wanted to snatch one up and were unable to. I got lots of “Ugh! Sold out!” messages…and I felt your pain.
By the way, the way I’ve been pimping out these watches this week…I kind of feel like I need to be selling them out of the back of a Cadillac on a street corner!
Hey lady – wanna watch? This one’s real nice! 🙂
As of this morning at 5:00 a.m., THIS white ceramic watch was still available.
Um, HELLO GORGEOUS!
It’s still expensive at 40% off, but it truly is a fantastic deal!
If you haven’t seen the white ceramic in person, it is so SO pretty.
And the baguette “diamonds” totally make this watch.
Maybe you have an anniversary or a birthday coming up that would help you justify this watch!
Here is what one reviewer said:
I just purchased this watch during the Half
Yearly sale. It is my third Michael Kors that I have purchased over the
years and my first ceramic. It is by far my favorite of them all. The
baguette crystals are unique and pretty, and the ceramic has a very nice
finish. The watch definitely looks better in person. It’s very
versatile. As the description says, it is sporty and sophisticated at
the same time. I pretty much wear it with everything. The sale price is
steal, but you better get it fast though. I put mine on hold at my local
store because they had very limited stock on hand and when I went to
pick it up, they were all sold out at that location. In the end, I LOVE
And check out THIS totally blinged out watch. Also 40% off.
I might feel like P Diddy wearing it, but I’m thinking I wouldn’t care.
I love sparkles, and this watch DELIVERS on sparkle.
In fact, you might want to go ahead and throw a pair of sunglasses in your cart too.
And listen, there might only be one of these left….
but THIS gold Brookton is showing up as available again at 40% off.
You guys are all loving THESE Shimera tanks and THESE Shimera camisoles,
just like I knew you would.
Click HERE for the tanks.
Click HERE for the camisoles.
Remember, they are not shapewear, but they still give a nice line when worn under clothes and they definitely have a little bit of “stretch” in them. They are great material,
AND they are long enough so they stay put (which I think is very important).
Jenny, a friend from high school went and tried them on in store. She e-mailed me and told me when she asked the sales associate for the “Shimera tank” that the lady made a comment about how she didn’t know why in the world so many people were asking for them this week! Hilarious!
Shimera – call me. 🙂
p.s. Jenny said she loves hers!
THESE wedges (on sale in red and yellow)
Many of you that already have the putty wedges (you’re welcome) have now bought one of THESE pair on sale. (limited sizes available now)
You guys are just like me in that your first pair of wedges made you a believer, so you were willing to spend $ on a second pair…especially since they were on sale.
Stephanie, a sweet reader, sent me a facebook message saying that she got the yellow wedges just because she felt like she couldn’t pass up the sale, but then regretted spending the money on a 2nd pair. She had decided that she was going to return them as soon as they arrived, but after she got them she changed her mind.
And I quote “I was all ready to take them back, but they go with just about flipping everything in my closet! The yellow looks great with several of my sundresses, and I love wearing them with my colored skinny jeans and shorts.”
Stephanie, you are my kind of girl!
Okay…so the comments about these next items made my day.
Several of you basically said that my girls convinced your girls that they deserved a nice bra!
Boobies unite! 🙂
I got THIS one (not many sizes left) and THIS one in pink and coral.
I really love that both of them can be converted to have cris-cross straps in the back.
My girls now stand firm (pun totally intended) that $40 for a nice bra (a bra that is regularly over $70) is money well spent.
And remember, one review said that even though the 2nd bra is lace, it doesn’t have a seam so it looks great and smooth under t-shirts!
Plus, it’s just plain pretty.
K.W. from Georgia, you were soooooo right about THIS purse. 40% off and GORGEOUS.
Love that it’s a crossbody and love that it is such a nice size!
It actually reminds me of a Frye bag (which you know I love!).
And the hardware on it is such a nice touch.
(If you want a smaller version, THIS one is on sale too.)
My friend Alli texted me a pic of her friend in THIS swimsuit at a pool party this weekend.
Only 3 sizes left at 40% off, so don’t miss out!
And last, but not least…
Jessica P. sent me the link to THIS blazer that is now 40% off!
And after I saw it, I realized that I had tried it on a couple of weeks ago!
It’s a modern cut, and it comes in 4 colors.
There are only petite sizes left, so keep that in mind!
People, you are running out of time.
SHOP LIKE YOU MEAN IT. For realz.
One more thing before you go that I am super excited about!
I first heard about this special planner last year from Erin (The Blue Eyed Bride), but for some reason I never purchased one for myself. Well…that’s not going to happen again.
Mama is getting a nice (and personalized!) calendar this year.
Here is a video that gives you a good intro to the calendar if you aren’t familiar with it.
I mean, really!
I never knew I would get so excited about a calendar/planner!
JUNE 4th can’t come soon enough!
Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
