How was everyone’s weekend? I feel like the last couple of days just flew by and now I’m prepping for yet another job out of town. I had mentioned my mom was coming in town in my last post and we had so much fun, I was sad to see her leave. If you’ve been following my Instagram Stories you got a peek into our weekend and how she took half of my furniture with her! By now, most of y’all know I have a habit of renovating and had started painting my brick fireplace white. My house doesn’t get a ton of light with all of the trees outside so I felt it needed a little refresher to lighten up the room. With that finished, most of my furniture didn’t really fit anymore, so she decided to take them off my hands! Such a sweet mom! 😜ย Now it looks like I just moved in my house with absolutely no furniture or decor! Time to shop!

{What’s Left on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Tips for 2018}

Y’all. I never thought this day would come… The end of the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is only THREE days away! Could I have sounded anymore like a broken record the past few weeks?? I apologize to anyone who got extremely annoyed with my persistent posting but if y’all understand what this sale means, then you know you need to shop fast! This year’s NSALE was definitely one for the books and so much different than any other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to date. Not only did things sell out fast, which was to be expected, but NOTHING was restocked. For those of y’all who are still interested in shopping the last few days of this sale I’ve created 11 scrollers in different categories with what is left in full size runs. I do suspect that some things will be selling out as I am writing this post, but fingers crossed some of these goodies are left.

Hello, Friday!ย With the beginning of fall slowly creeping around the corner it is time to start bringing out all of your fall staples. Are you kidding me… How is Fall less than 2 months away?!ย As for me, youโ€™ll see the color black in about 95% of the outfits Iโ€™ll be wearing throughout the season. I always say Fall is the time that you’ll see me in ALL black again! For me, it is the season to be rocking as much black as you want without dying in the Texas heat. Maybe wait until November so you don’t die of a heat stroke since our Fall consists of 80 degree weather with absolutely no chance of snow, EVER.
