Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I love that this 3-day weekend is the proverbial ‘start to Summer.’ It just makes me so happy! Living in the Midwest means the weather still is not necessarily in full Summer-mode quite yet but I’ve spent this weekend reorganizing my closet, packing away cold weather items and doing a bit of a clean out. Memorial Day means so many different things to people and to me it’s a time of remembering those who have gone before us, and too soon, whether they’ve served our great country or not. It is also a great time to come together to celebrate the Freedom we do have with family & friends over BBQs, golf, cocktails & boating.

My Memorial Day Weekend Sales Roundup could be a mile long but I’ll spare you and share my 12 favorite sales happening THIS weekend:

Pinstripes aren’t just for the boys. I use to think that tiny white stripes on a black base were only worn by businessmen who worked long hours. Something about them seemed so masculine which is why I avoided them at all costs. It’s ironic to think of me avoiding that kind of look because I’m […]

It’s THURSDAY! Only 1 more day until a long awaited & much need 3 day weekend. I know I’m not the only one who is overly excited about a long weekend. The forecast here in Omaha looks pretty pathetic–60%+ chance of Thunderstorms from today thru next Wednesday–but I can deal with that. Something about a rainy […]

Food is fuel. We’ve all heard this a million times. We are all well aware that the better we eat, the better we feel {or so they say ;-)}. We are also constantly overwhelmed–please tell me I’m not alone in this!–with the desire to eat our body weight in chips & salsa at happy hour or […]

Jumpsuits are so easy. Jumpsuits that feel like sweatpants but look way more fashionable than sweats? Even easier. When Tobi reached out last month to collaborate, I was so excited; I have been shopping from their website since my days at Iowa State when I needed a go-to outfit for any party or upcoming event. […]

It’s Maxi season! Because I wasn’t gifted in the height department I tend to avoid maxi dresses. They usually swallow up my frame & figure and require me to wear 4″+ heels in order to not drag excessively on the ground. Not my favorite combination. I’m quite often disappointed by this issue because I seem to […]

#1  Bacon Chorizo Chipotle Smothered Meatloaf I’ve gone Paleo for the next 2.5 weeks but am allowing myself cold brew coffee + 1 tbsp of Almondmilk Creamer in the mornings. I’ve not a big meat-eater so despite only being on Day 4, I’m pretty much over meat. As a major fan of Juli Bauer & […]

Eyelet details immediately amp up any look. It’s true, just think about it for a moment. When you find a top or dress with intricate eyelet detailing you need on minimal, if any, accessories to finish off the outfit. It’s as if the accessories are already built-in saving you money on a pair of statement […]

We made it through the week! It’s FRIDAY! YAY! I don’t do Instagram roundups as must as I could so I’m very overdue with this one. I try to post a minimum of 1x/day on Instagram but only average, at most, 2 outfit or style-focused blog posts per week which means there are many looks that […]
