I mean, HILARIOUS.
Kelly from Kelly’s Korner posted this on twitter earlier this week, and I laughed so hard!
Now THAT’S some creative (and effective, I imagine) parenting!
Speaking of Kelly, you might want to go see her over at Shay’s today.
Shay is debuting her pajama party series, and Kelly is her first guest!
This stuff is muy delicioso.
It’s flavored with Splenda instead of Aspartame, which is a good thing!
I wore this yesterday, and it’s a perfect example of a go-to outfit for me.
This combo is definitely one of my favorite things to wear:
a t-shirt, a cardigan, a favorite pair of jeans, a pair of TOMS or flats
Easy. Comfy. Cute.
Jeans| Nordstrom, exact pair HERE
V-neck t| J Crew Factory, fall colors HERE
(I have 4 different colors of this v-neck. Definitely a wardrobe staple for me.)
Yellow cardigan| LOFT, similar HERE
This cardigan comes in 14 colors, and it’s 30% off, as is everything at LOFT right now!
Blue Sunbrella TOMS| sold out, but great fall options HERE (camo) and HERE (leopard)
I’m sure this goes without saying.
But just in case you aren’t aware.
I’m full on obsessed with THESE.
I am LOVING all of the e-mails I am getting from you guys about how you FINALLY believe me that leopard is a neutral! WooHoo!!!!!
You guys are wearing leopard with bold colors, with stripes (my favorite thing to pair with leopard), and I even got an e-mail yesterday that one reader is wearing leopard
with polka-dots (shout out Catherine!). 🙂
I featured the Sam Edelman rounded toe flat (in the middle) last week, but in case you haven’t made the leap into leopard, I have a couple of more options for you now at varying price points….
ALL from Sam Edelman.
Because if you are going to buy leopard flats, you might as well do it right,
and Mr. Edelman knows what he’s doing.
When working on the above leopard flats collage, I stumbled upon THESE leopard heels.
My goodness these would SASS up a little black dress.
AND HOW GREAT would they look with the MUST HAVE jeans with a MUST HAVE shirt.
There is absolutely NO WAY you could wear these shoes and not feel sexy!
I haven’t seen these next 3 items in person, but I hopped on Old Navy.com earlier this week (which I haven’t done in awhile), and I was intrigued by these three items:
black wrap dress HERE (on sale for $20! what?)
cardigan HERE (tons of colors)
tan tote HERE
They would all be great basics to have.
Check out the Old Navy dress with the Sam Edelman heels!
Oh wait! I found another leopard heel HERE from Enzo Angiolini!
This pair is a peep toe (love!) and it’s 55% off, making them just under $50! What a deal!
I am also LOVING…..
wait for it…..
the FINAL MARKDOWNS ON SHOES AND BOOTS at Nordstrom.
AWESOME shoes and boots are still available, so I thought they deserved an AWESOME collage.
It only took me like an hour to create it.
Click the number for a direct link to the shoe of your choice:
And is it just me, or does the phrase “going, going, gone….” make your heart race?!?
I wrote it in the collage, and then I started to panic inside.
I need help.
Or if you are looking for a great pair of heels,
these Vince Camuto heels come in lots of colors (as well as snake skin).
LOVE the peep toe and the sling back.
And you can’t beat under $75 for a great pair of heels!
The bottom right pair reminds me of my putty wedges…and I am obsessed with that color and how it seems to literally go with anything and everything you put with it.
Click HERE for these awesome heels in solid colors.
Click HERE for the snakeskin version.
There are also other things I found ON SALE at Nordstrom that totally peaked my interest!
When I highlighted items from the Anniversary Sale back in July, I got TONS of e-mail about Hanky Panky underwear. I had never heard of this brand, but some of you ladies are
HARD CORE Hanky Panky fans.
There are select Hanky Panky items on sale HERE.
All of you that wrote me about them said that they are expensive, so you make sure you always buy them on sale. It’s your lucky day!
I’ve talked to you about my love of Natori bras before.
I only buy them on sale.
Select bras on sale HERE!
I had never even heard of Zella work out gear until the Anniversary sale, but you all let me know about it! There are some pieces on sale again HERE!
Michael Kors trench coat HERE (the red and the khaki are my favorite!)
waxed denim HUE leggings HERE
cashmere blend crewneck polka dot sweater HERE
solid color cashmere sweater HERE (lots of gorgeous colors!)
stone ring HERE , call of the wild hinged bangle HERE
eileen fisher ballet neck dolman sleeve tee HERE
military jacket in the little girls department HERE
if you are petite, you can wear this!
(check out the cute ruffled back)
The lace front cardigan HERE that I highlighted yesterday is now on sale! And it’s 50% off!
Kut from the Kloth slim boyfriend jeans. I was thinking they would look SO cute with the lace cardigan above, and then I realized she’s wearing them!
Click HERE for the jeans. 50% off!
I’ve tried these on and they are the only boyfriend jeans I’ve ever had on in my life that I really like.
They are slouchy without being too baggy, and they just have a great fit.
I received an e-mail from LOFT this morning that EVERYTHING is 30% off right
now with the code EVERYTHING! Click HERE to shop the entire sale!
AND YOU GET A $25 SAVINGS CARD FOR EVERY $50 YOU SPEND!
But here are some of my favorite picks:
Click HERE for a khaki trench coat piped in black!
My navy sheer dot tee from earlier this week HERE.
We talked about ruffles yesterday, and I have NO IDEA how I missed THIS tiered ruffled shirt.
OH MY GOODNESS I LOVE IT! (pictured below)
Imagine it with the MUST HAVE jeans or the the Kut boyfriend jeans above!
I headed to LOFT today and was able to try on some things.
red sweater (with cute brass detail on shoulder) HERE
grey peter pan short sleeve sweater HERE (I actually LOVED this!)
sweater jacket with peplum (can’t find link anywhere)
dot layered ruffled blouse HERE
It came home with me.
Polka dot shirt dress HERE.
long necklace HERE
This dress came home with me too.
I’ve never owned anything like it, but I thought it was SUPER cute. I don’t think the pictures do it justice. For size reference, mine is a small. It’s going to look great with tights and tall boots!
(I like like I’m glowing because of the lights.)
Okay, that’s it for today friends!
I hope everybody has a WONDERFUL weekend!
I have something near and dear to my heart that I’m working on this weekend, and I can’t wait to share it with you guys sometime over the next couple of weeks!
See you back here on Monday!!!!
