*WHAT WE ARE EATING*
So here’s what I’m NOT eating. I’m not eating my favorite zucchini and lentil “pasta“, because it seems to be sold out everywhere! I intercepted the stock guy for the frozen foods section at Market Street to ask him if he had any in the back and he was all “I don’t know what’s going on, but we haven’t been able to keep it in stock for the last several weeks.”
Seems as if I need to keep my big fat mouth shut about the foods I love if I want to be able to continue to buy and eat said foods. 🙂
On the other hand, I LOVE that y’all love it too. I’ve received many a message from you ladies, and you are all just as obsessed as I am. If there is a Bird’s Eye employee reading today, please send me some. 😉 And just in case, I love the spiral “pasta” with the marinara sauce as well. #justkidding #noimnot #pleasesendmesome
*WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT*
Eating this. I miss it. If you missed my first post, I roast veggies and salmon to eat with the above “pasta”…AND IT’S DELISH.
*WHAT I’M LOVING*
My new Nickel and Suede earrings! I’ve had my gold pair for awhile, but Kilee (the creator of these earrings and owner of Nickel and Suede) sent me 2 more pairs! To read more about their business (it’s a total family run business) and how they got started, click HERE. But here’s what you need to know about the earrings: the quality is amazing, they are light as a feather, the packaging is beautiful, and there are lots of different shapes, colors, and sizes to choose from. And I love that by buying the earrings you are supporting Kilee and her family (she’s got 5 boys, y’all)! You’ll see my gold pair in a picture further down in this post, and you’ll see my new spearmint and cork pairs in the coming weeks.
The model below is wearing the large option, but I prefer the mediums. And you can check out this page for simple pictures showing you the 3 different sizes of the earrings.
*WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO*
I was at a blogger conference this past weekend, and I had an absolute blast with my blogger friends. I’ll be doing a recap of what I wore to all of the events on Friday’s post! LOTS of cute stuff!
*WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND*
Carter has 1 soccer game, and that’s about it. No huge plans, and I’m thrilled about it.
*WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT*
Yesterday I discovered that SO MANY THINGS that I’ve talked about in the past are either BACK IN STOCK or NOW ON SALE!
Let’s start with some restocks of items that lots of you ladies were disappointed you missed out on the first go around.
LIKE THE CAMO DRESS!
GIRLS. I LOVE and ADORE this dress. I’ve probably worn it 5 times already, I loved it every time, and I get compliments every time. This picture is after I wore it on a short road trip in the car….and then straight into a meeting.
Size References: I have a small in the dress, a medium in the jacket, and I sized up a 1/2 in the sandals.
This dress is available again and FULLY STOCKED IN ALL SIZES (as of yesterday)! And just in case it sells out at Nordstrom again, it’s fully stocked at Sanctuary also, and they have FREE SHIPPING! This is a great little dress that’s perfect to just throw on and go. You’ll look super cute and totally pulled together with minimal effort.
Click HERE if you want to see the dress styled differently with a turquoise necklace.

AND LADIES! The SUNDAY TEE that everybody wanted is back in stock too! HOORAY! It’s sold out twice already, so don’t delay!
And remember, if you are in the market for a new pair of denim shorts, you need to check out my highlight reel on my instastories (my instagram handle is @sheaffertoldmeto) where I review 4 different pairs of denim shorts (of varying washes, lengths, and styles).
I sized up to a medium in the tee because I did not want it fitted at all. I could wear this basic outfit formula (tee, these denim shorts, and sandals) every warm day and be happy.
Let’s take a minute to talk about the denim shorts, because they deserve a moment of our time. THESE. SHORTS. ARE. AWESOME. I got them last year, wore the heck out of them, and was so excited for y’all when they came back this year! They are stretchy, comfy, and not crazy short. I’ve tried on DOZENS and DOZENS of shorts over the last several years, and these are my favorites by far. They are tacked up on the sides in order to help them stay rolled up (which I appreciate), but know that you can’t roll them down to make them longer.
I have a 27 in the shorts which is true to size for me, but size down if between sizes. Size up 1/2 a size in the sandals.
And notice my gold leather earrings from Nickel and Suede!

AND NOW FOR SOME SALE ITEMS!
This red lace top is ON SALE! It’s almost $50 off!
You saw this lace top on the blog several weeks ago (click HERE to see it styled the first time)…and here it is with different earrings and a clutch. I’m in between a 4 and a 6 in the top, so I went with the 6 because I didn’t want the 4 pulling. The wedges are true to size (but some are saying to size up a 1/2 if you have wide feet). I have a 27 in the jeans, size down if between sizes.
The colors are gorgeous in person and the square neckline is so interesting. I sized up to a medium because the small pulled across the chest. Size up a 1/2 in the sandals. I have a 27 in the jeans, size down if between sizes.
If you don’t have the white jeans yet, I’m determined to convince you that you should try them! Click HERE for the post where I feel like I made a really solid case for them. They are stretchy, they are comfy, they hug you in all the right places, and perhaps most importantly… they aren’t see thru. Oh wait, also of extreme importance is the fact that they are flattering as all get out. ’m encouraging you today, if you’ve always shied away from white jeans, GIVE THESE A TRY! For just $68, they could be your beloved white jeans too. Give them a shot! With free shipping AND free returns, what do you have to lose?!?
Click HERE for all of the BaubleBar earrings available and on SUPER sale!
Here’s another way I styled them.
And these DARLING tassel drop earrings! Again, I’m sorry to report that the rest of the outfit is no longer available.
And I was excited to see this promotion this morning! Buy more, Save more at Stella and Dot! AND, if you buy something this week, Narci will refund your shipping if you spend a minimum of $100 (ends 04/30). Click HERE to shop, and make sure that you are shopping Sheaffer Sims trunk show and that Narci Dreffs is your stylist! Mother’s Day is coming up, and their engraveable necklaces make fabulous gifts. You can get birthdays engraved on them, names, the first initials of all the kids or grandkids, the possibilities are endless!
*WHAT I’M WATCHING*
Time to admit something that I’m not sure I’ve ever shared before.
I watch General Hospital.
I’ve watched it since high school.
AND Y’ALL. It’s good now. I MEAN. REALLY GOOD.

*WHAT I’M LISTENING TO*
Right now I’m listening to three things: the dishwasher, the washer, and the dryer. After being gone for the weekend, I’m catching up on all the things. I’m feeling super productive right now because the work is being done for me….but as soon as they stop, that’s when the real work begins.
And I happen to be that girl that almost always has to “fluff” the clothes in the dryer at least once.
*WHAT I’M WORKING ON*
Colleen Rothschild is having a big Friends and Family Sale in a couple of weeks, and I’m going to do a post during the sale! I got the chance to meet with Colleen herself this past weekend, and it was such a treat. She is just as sweet as can be, and YOU SHOULD SEE THE WOMAN’S SKIN. #flawless
I told her that my whole family LOVES all of her products (my mom and sister are just as obsessed as I am), but I shared that I felt like I needed some help with what order I should be using them in. So, we are going to do a “Colleen Rothschild Told Me To” post and I’m super excited! I shared with (and showed) Colleen what my two biggest problem areas are, and she’s going to send me the specific routine that she recommends for me! How fun is that! Colleen Rothschild Told Me To will go live on May 16th during their huge sale!
*WHAT I’M WEARING*
I showed y’all a picture of me trying this tunic tee on at the mall last week, and I said I couldn’t wait to wear it with white jeans and wedges. Well, it’s true. I couldn’t wait.
I was wearing a small in the tee at the mall, but I ordered an x-small, and I definitely preferred the x-small on me (which is what you see on me here). I definitely suggest sizing down in the tee. Concerning jean size, I actually now have a 26 in the jeans (although I originally bought the 27s), and the wedges are true to size.
Ladies, this tee comes in several colors, and I imagine this is one of those that many of you will probably get in multiple colors. It’s a great price point at $25, and I think lots of us appreciate the longer length. I mean, some days you just like to cover your bootie. #ormaybethatsjustme
Click HERE if you would like to see the tassel necklace in several different outfits. It’s a very versatile piece that I wear all spring and summer long…and I have for several years now.
Get The Look For Yourself Here:
I received this dress in the mail yesterday, and I threw it on for pictures immediately because I’m afraid it’s going to sell out! This dress is 100% cotton and lined (so it’s NOT see thru)! I love the stripes, the square neck, and the embroidery around the neckline.
Now, I’ll say this…I sized down to an x-small, and I am NEVER an x-small (especially in dresses). So, this dress definitely runs big. If you’re a teeny tiny person, then I’m afraid this dress might not be for you.
I LOVE the dress. Shift dresses and swing dresses are my favorite silhouettes, and I also love that the arms on this come down a tiny bit for those of you that don’t like to expose the top part of your arms.
The bag is FABULOUS. It was available yesterday, it sold out last night, but this morning it was available again! I’m praying for a huge restock because I can’t get over how gorgeous it is. It’s structured (with a very unique shape), has a cute little button and loop closure, and the rattan is a beautiful honey color.
Get The Look For Yourself Here. Since my exact bag is going in and out of stock, here are some options for you:
