We tried to take a picture of ourselves together. But each picture I took of us, I looked super ugly.
Like SUPER ugly. So after erasing like 20 pictures the second after taking them, I took one of myself where I looked a little less ugly…and I took one of Shay acting like she didn’t know me.
Oh yeah, and I also took a picture of Shay in the window at LOFT.
You know, just a regular day of shopping.
Shay handled all the girls stuff a couple of weeks ago,
Mos of the boy’s clothes I’ve pulled today are all Boden from Nordstrom.
I focused on this line because these clothes come in toddler, little boy, and big boy sizes.
Boden holds up SO well and washes great.
(I typically buy up a size in the shirts, I roll up the long sleeves, and he can wear them for 2 seasons.)
Look how cute these clothes are!!!!
guitar shirt HERE, dart shirt HERE, striped pullover HERE, slim cargo khakis HERE
For the entire selection of boy Boden, click HERE (which includes infant boy also).
And I LOVE these shoes. LOVE.
Click HERE for all Chuck Taylor’s.
Boden clothes (although I LOVE dressing Carter in them are kinda pricey), so GAP is usually my GO TO place to buy Carter’s clothes.
I especially LOVE the hoodies for the fall and winter. I don’t like to put Carter in coats unless it’s really cold, so I usually just throw a hoodie on him!
Click HERE to see all of the hoodies.
Click HERE for the big boy hoodie on the left and

I love GAP’s jeans for kids. Click HERE for all kid’s denim.
I also love Naartjie! Click HERE to check them out!
So, that’s it for the kid’s portion of this post!
On to the mommy portion!
Us Mommies have to look fab too, right?
(I went to both LOFT and Nordstrom on our shopping day. However, I ended up using all of my LOFT pics yesterday because of the sale. So, Nordstrom it is!)
Lots of people have e-mailed me asking if I had seen the MUST HAVE shirt in white.
I made a point to go try it on, and here it is!
THIS SHIRT RUNS BIG, SO REMEMBER TO ORDER DOWN 1 SIZE!
Mine in the picture is an x-small.
I styled it with my Kimberly necklace HERE and my Vigoss jeans (distressed version HERE and non-distressed version HERE.)
I like the edginess of this “leather” trimmed tee.
Leather is HUGE this season, and I think this would be a nice way to include the trend without going full on biker. 🙂
It comes in 4 colors. Click HERE for it.
Halogen striped sweater HERE (and checkout the fun elbow “patch”).
I love how it’s styled on the model over a white button up and distressed jeans!
I had a couple of people e-mail me these earrings during the Anniversary Sale contest, so I knew I needed to try them. So pretty
Click HERE for this lace sweatshirt.
(Ever since seeing Melissa Gorga wear the sweatshirt with lace embellishments,
I’ve been on the look out for one.)
I posted this next picture on facebook this weekend, and there was lots of conversation about it.
You can find the Free People Ruffle Trim Jacket HERE.
Christine, a reader, commented it was a mullet jacket…”business in the front, party in the back.”
The front is pretty plain, but the lace-up sleeves, the frayed seams,
and the ruffles make me want to scream!
ARE YOU DYING OVER THE FRAYED SEAMS AND RUFFLES?
If you like the idea of this jacket, but can’t justify spending the money on it, remember there is a similar version in the girl’s department HERE. If you are over 5’4″ or super busty, I wouldn’t recommend it, but otherwise I think it’s a great option! I tried on the 10-12, and it was fine on me. I think the 14-16 probably would have been okay too (but there wasn’t one in store to try on).
I also found THESE boots.
I know MANY of you have been looking for a well priced brown boot.
I THINK THIS IS YOUR BOOT PEOPLE!
Erika – stop your search! THESE ARE YOUR BOOTS!

At the very end of our shopping trip, Shay and I were walking to our cars which were parked right outside of Nordstrom, and we saw this:
Two precious little old ladies walking through the shoe department at Nordstrom and holding hands.
I pointed them out to Shay, and I was all “Awwww. That’s so sweet. Do you think they’re sisters?”
And without missing a beat Shay said,
“No. That’s us in like 50 years. Walking through the Nordy shoe department.
You’re the one with the cane.”
True that Shay.
