HELLO…BLACK FRIDAY

Typically, I am not a huge Black Friday sale shopper, but with a baby on the way, a new house, and celebrating some big family birthdays this holiday season, our list is very long this year. Thanks to the sales starting early I have already checked off a few things I have been wanting/needing (nest thermostats, dyson hair dryer, and a Frame TV) and some really good deals on gifts! My wish list looks very different than in years past: think cozy pajamas (I will be spending the next few months in), a dining room table, and mostly just necessities for baby boy. Here are the sales I am shopping and a few deals that shouldn’t go unnoticed. I will be adding more sales to this post as the weekend goes on, but some are too good to pass up early!

WHAT I’VE BEEN WEARING

I have been meaning to write this post since I announced by pregnancy back in August. A few of you sweethearts have been asking where I have been, how I’ve been feeling and wondering where I’ve been. I am doing really great, and I owe you a major update on my second trimester now that I am almost halfway through my third (eek!). If I am being honest, I have loved slowing down a bit and spending quality time with the people I love most. I have been off my phone for the majority of the Summer and Fall to really enjoy this pregnancy. I took a step back from the blog because something just needed to give. Between work (which I absolutely love), buying our first house, renovating said house, and moving at 31 weeks pregnant, I just found myself not finding the right words or stories to share here. Now, that all of the madness is almost behind us (just in time for another big life change to happen), I honestly have so much to tell you! So, minus the lack of a good outfit to share, I want to tell you about all of the pieces I have been wearing the last few months. I almost created a capsule-like wardrobe for myself because I am determined not to buy too many things that I won’t want to wear post-baby.

A BIG SALE AND SOME EVEN BIGGER NEWS!

Hi!! Long time, no talk! I am really excited to share some big news with you! Between being 27 weeks pregnant (feeling great by the way!) and a crazy work schedule lately, something had to give, hence the radio silence. So…are you ready for the big news? WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! We are seriously so excited and have been moving quickly on a few small renovation projects and updates these last couple weeks before we move in. I am dying to getting organized and start the nursery. This house is going to be an ongoing project and I can’t wait to share with you! More on this exciting news this week, but today is all about my favorite sale of the year…the Shopbop Sitewide Sale!

It has been a minute since I did a deep dive on the site. To be honest, clothes just are not getting me as excited these days. I have been getting creative with shopping my closet, but I am running out of options that work. Now that we are slowing starting to see a shift in temperatures, I am looking forward to dressing new accessory with some cozy sweaters, coats, and of course, athleisure, oh and a few maternity jean styles. I already picked up these two pairs: dark denim and white (thanks to Mackenzie’s rec!).

I have been lusting over styles from Ulla Johnson, Vince, and Hatch. See some of the styles I already purchased and are currently in my cart!

Trends not to be missed:

Warm Tones | The New Modest | Untamed Texture Bags | Amped Up Earrings

Use the code STOCKUP19 for 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders over $500. The sale ends September 27th at midnight, so stock up on your favorites today before they go back to full price.

So long summer… well, it will be a while until we will be enjoying Fall weather in Dallas. Do you have any fun Labor Day plans?

12 ITEMS TO BUY FROM THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Ready or not, it’s here again: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. While I love a good sale, I have been following a less is more method of shopping this year. This philosophy has really allowed me too narrow in on what pieces I reach for in my closet, what fits my figure, and what’s worth the investment. I did a deep dive on all of the items in the sale and was really selective on the pieces I chose. THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 19th). Y’all the pieces in the sale are goood this year!

Vince Cashmere Sweater | Mules | Silk Midi Skirt | Cream Crewneck Sweater | Blue Crewneck Sweater | Mother Denim | Jo Malone Candle Set | Ryder Cardigan | Fuzzy Jacket | White Cropped Sweatshirt | Nike Leggings | Cozy Tan Sweater

BEST SWIM FOR SUMMER

Summer Swim

We have officially hit peak swimsuit season and I have been pulling out my favorites. I’ve talked about my love for summer a lot on ADOD and spending time by the pool may be one of my favorite reasons. This probably has something to do with growing up in Scottsdale and the only relief we got in the summer was spending hours playing in the pool. My love for swimsuits started early on in life––I have always been super particular, just ask my mom. My girlfriends worked at Everything But Water in high school, which led me down a dark path to designer swimsuits at a young age and I’ve never looked back. My swimsuit philosophy is: two new suits a year (one in Resort- if we have a beach trip, and one in the summer).

WEEKEND DETAILS

Faithfull the Brand Dress

Friday marked the official start to summer and we are sure feeling the heat here in Texas. Since we will be spending most of the summer in town, I plan on spending the weekends in the pool (with a huge sun hat (or maybe a visor, thoughts? and lots of sunscreen––a new favorite!) and wearing all the breezy sundresses for late night dinners with friends.

There is something special about summer nights. Maybe, it’s the long days when the sun doesn’t disappear until 9pm or everyone’s relaxed attitudes due to the increase in Vitamin D. Whatever it may be, summer has always been my favorite season.
