I'm trying to convince myself with optimism that Monday can be fun. So far, it's not really working. Maybe a Salted Caramel Mocha to pick me up....
I did quite a bit of damage on Black Friday (successfully hitting up Best Buy, Target and Old Navy) but online shopping is revolutionizing my Christmas shopping. With so many of my blogger friends being small business owners, I find myself wanting to support small businesses (especially located in the U.S.) so all of today's finds fit that category.
I've already ordered an amazing scarf with my bloggy BFF Melissa at Issa.ino and I'm on the verge of buying up the rest of these Etsy picks!
What are your favorite Etsy shops??
How were your holidays? The hardest part about enjoying amazing food and good times with friends and family is how disconnected I feel from the blogging world. Tell me all about your weekend, pretty please!
So in my 25 by 25 post, I made a promise to myself to toss out pieces in my closet that don't fit anymore. Confession time: I have a closet FULL of clothes that don't fit. I'm not only a clothing hoarder but like most women, I dream of fitting into THAT pair of shorts again so I keep them just in case. But those days are over, I'm taking my closet back!
And ifwhen I lose that weight I dream of losing, then I will spoil myself with a new wardrobe anyways!
So today's Loving Lately is a fall outfit I've been dreaming of. With room in my closet now, maybe I can chase these tan beauties.
Today I'm joining up again with one of my favorites link ups, Current Crush Thursdays! I'm only 5'0" so as long as I have somewhere to go, I'm in heels or wedges to give me that added bump. Wedges are the perfect way to dress up a summer look so here are some wedges I'm simply obsessing about!
Yesterday via convos with some of my favorite bloggers Danielle, Punky and Tammy I discovered that I am indeed a No-Reply Blogger. 🙁 Not by choice but because WordPress doesn't allow me to comment with my e-mail attached. So I apologize to all you bloggers who desperately hate no-reply bloggers, I have no choice in the matter! I plan to investigate and blog more about this in my weekend entry so stay tuned for more.
Also, I realized my replies to your comments aren't getting to you wonderful people, unless you come back to the entry?! That's no fun. I think I'm going to start replying via e-mail unless its relevant to more than one person. Any thoughts on that? Hope that works!
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! Mine was spent exactly as it ought to be, relaxing. Rob and I spent a majority of the day lounging around after leisurely sleeping in and then going to Elk Grove Park for the fireworks show with my family. My Dad grilled up some steaks, red potatoes and we picnicked until the fireworks at night. Heavenly...
So for today's current crush, I've been really into statement necklaces. Especially the J.crew bubble necklace that EVERYONE owns! My favorite way that statement necklaces are styled is with a neutral colored top but a bright pop of necklace and other accessories. Case and point, Jessica over at Lovely Little Things in this outfit. She's rockin it right?!
Do you have a favorite? I'm loving the coral one from Francescas, it would compliment so many different outfits. If you recommend any places to buy affordable and cute statement necklaces, leave me a comment and let me know!!
How'd you spend your 4th of July? Hope you had a great one!
