My #Nsale Picks

Top: Lush (Only $28!), Jeans: Express (On sale for $40 right now!), Mules: Forever 21 - Love these from the sale!
I'm obsessed with this Lush tunic and own it in two colors! It's such a comfortable fit and it's on major sale right now for $28. It goes with everything and it's such a great top to throw on and go which is probably why I do it too often. It's especially my favorite lately because there's still enough room for my bump to breath. I wanted to share that it was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale along with SO many other fabulous items. This is my favorite sale every year but normally, I can't shop it until it goes live to the public which requires me to set my alarm at 2 a.m. the night of to get first pick of what's left. I decided to finally become a Nordstrom cardholder this year to get early access because the sale is THAT good! I'm sharing some items below that I ordered myself and others that I love. With fall right around the corner, it's the best time to start stocking up on your fall wardrobe at really good prices. 

P.S. I've been doing the rubber band trick with my jeans lately which you can probably tell! (lol!). I've been trying to hold off but I finally started looking for cute maternity jeans. I did pick up a pair at Target that I love!

I'm not sure how these will fit (I kind of forgot about my growing belly), so we'll see but I love the hem!

You've pretty much seen every blogger list this is as a must have, but it's a fun cardigan and looks so cozy! It's also available in black.

I literally ordered this 10 minutes before it sold out, but it's currently restocked so snatch it while you can! 

I need more cross body bags and this color and texture is perfect for the fall! I ordered this one before it sold out, but I also LOVE this one. 
Be on the lookout for re-stocks!

I had to get baby something from the sale too, and these were too cute! Also come in pink!

These come in so many colors and it's a cute comfortable shoe to switch it up from heels and booties. 

Another baby item! Love the gold color and the price drop. 

Love the color and Zella leggings are great for working out and even to wear through the fall and winter with boots and sweaters. The material is so thick!

Every year during this sale, one of my purchases is always OTK boots because the prices are such a deal and they are a fall staple.

Ordered this last year and love it for the fall/winter months!

Love the colors of the black one for fall and would be paired perfect with booties.

Looks SO cozy!

Obsessed with these and all the colors! Can be worn for the rest of summer and fall!

Such a fun print!

Love the look of these!

I also just ordered this dress last minute!

Happy Shopping friends! 

If you're not a cardholder yet, the sale goes public this Friday, July 21st (I always set my alarm for 2 a.m. when it hits midnight on the West Coast!) Refer back to this post for these finds that'll take you to the direct link and make it easier!

Zara Sale

Top: Zara - Almost exact same here for $20!, Shorts: Old Levi's - Similar here, Sandals: Forever 21 - Similar here and here. Pups: Not available ;) 
Today's post is super short, but I just wanted to share that Zara is having a huge sale right now! It's one of my go-to stores anytime i'm in a big city and online. In case you're like me and don't have a Nordstrom credit card and have early access to the Nordstrom sale (crying), you can spend some time shopping the Zara sale for now until next week when the Nordy sale opens up to everyone! I ran in there quickly last weekend while we were in San Antonio, and although it's a little overwhelming because it tends to turn into a mess during big sales, you can still find some great things. I found this top and have already worn it twice. I love the gingham pattern mixed with embroidery and you know I love how baggy it is. It could possibly be a tunic dress if you go a size up but may be a little short. There's lots of pretty pieces on sale online right now, and even for babies! I picked up a few things for our girl while there, and my mom ordered some things online for her so her closet is slowly coming together! ;) 

P.S. Tyce and Beefy made an appearance on the blog today because we were also shooting some pictures for their feature in Be Well magazine next month! Be on the lookout for it in stores like H-E-B, Albertson's, and other local businesses, and online at Be Well Magazine.

I've had a crazy busy week, so I'm ready for the weekend! Hope you enjoy yours too!

Bumpdate & Blush Tops

Top: Bp. (sold out! :() - Linked other similar ones below!, Jeans: Old - Similar here and here, Shoes: Vince Camuto - Super similar and half the price here, Bag: Similar here - Tory Burch

Y,all, I'm late to the party on posting this top and I'm so sad because it is sold out. It went like crazy because it's only been about 3 weeks since I ordered it. Although it's long sleeve, it's made of such a light material so makes it a perfect top for the summer! I especially love it because it goes right over my bump and it's comfortable. I linked other similar options below though! Also, these booties are great to wear in the summer and transition great to the fall! 

Now to the bumpdate! 

We're officially HALFWAY there, and it's so hard to believe! When I sit back and think about it, it has actually gone by really fast. I think like goodness, I used to think when I got pregnant I would take a weekly bump picture, journal the whole way, etc. In reality, I've taken a couple of bump pictures and just barely caught up on the baby journal (oops!) I am getting a head start on her nursery though and I'm super excited to get going on that. Can't wait to share it when it's done! She's already loved by so many sweet people in our lives and we've gotten so many things this last week, so my goal is to work on her closet first to have a place for better organization and to hang her clothes. She's a night owl because she's always really active at night when we're going to bed, but I love feeling every bit of it. We have a big sonogram scheduled next week, so I'm super excited to catch a glimpse of her again!   

That's all for now!

Summer Kimonos

Kimono: Forever 21 (Only $16!), Shorts: Zara - Old, Top: Forever 21 - Old (linked others below!), Sandals: Forever 21, Hat: Forever 21

Most of this outfit comes from Forever 21, so you already know it's super affordable! This summer, I have been 100% about comfort. 1. The heat has just been too much for me. 2. My clothes are shrinking (lol ;)), and I just like oversized flowy pieces. I have a love/hate relationship with kimonos. I go through phases where I absolutely love them and want to throw them on all the time, and then there's other times when I'm just totally over them. This summer, I'm into them! They're perfect to throw on over a tank, a tee, and even better, by the pool over your swimsuit. I've been loving this yellow, mustard color lately, so when I saw it, it came home with me. Also, these sandals - I bought them a few weeks ago because I needed some comfortable sandals for the pool and I spotted these for $20 at Forever. I've been wearing them nonstop with everything and they've actually held up pretty good for being so cheap! 

I've linked other kimonos and tees below!

Gender Reveal

We threw together a last minute gender reveal party and had some family and friends there for it. It is so surreal knowing that we're having a BABY GIRL! For so long, it was such a mystery even though Kalep just knew it was a girl. It just makes it feel even more real. Most of the fun predictions and old wives tales pointed to a girl, but you never know with those things. Anyway, I just wanted to share a few pictures from our reveal. I DIY'd the decor, tassels and cookies and opted to go with peach and mint instead of the blue and pink! Special thanks to all of our family and friends that attended - meant the world to us. Also, thanks to my mom and grandma for making so much yummy food, my aunt for helping with it all and my mother in law for the balloons and drinks!

Now the fun part begins - decorating the nursery and shopping for cute baby clothes! ;) I am dreading picking a name though. I'm SO indecisive about big decisions, and I had said I wouldn't think about it until we knew the gender...and now we're here!

That's it for today! Make this Monday a great one!

 (Don't mind the bad lighting!)

Bows + Booties

Top: Bp. (Nordstrom), Pants: Old - Similar here, Shoes: Vince Camuto

On my hunt for comfy, cute tops I found this one, and let me tell you - it's definitely been on repeat. It also comes in blue stripes and white, and less than $50. I did decide to wear it the other day when it was 111 degrees, and black in that West Texas heat was not my brightest idea, but it is made of a super light material! The heat hasn't been my friend lately whatsoever. Even while we were at an outdoor mall in Austin the other day - I didn't last very long. That's pretty bad when Kalep wants to be at a mall more than I do. Anyway, these booties - I love! They're great for summer because they're peep toe and perforated, and can even be worn into the fall. 

We spent most of last week out of town in Houston and Austin, and it was so fun and relaxing to just spend time together and spend time with family. We got to see friends we hadn't seen in a while, and it just made my heart so happy to see them! 

One more thing - we are having our gender reveal this weekend and I am getting so impatient! I keep going back on forth on what I feel the gender will be, but Kalep is stuck on a girl. We've done all the old wives tales, the ring trick, the chinese calendar, etc. and everything points to a girl. Although those things aren't always right, it's still a fun guessing game. 

That's it for today!

Summer Staple: Wide Leg Pants

Top: Missguided (Only available in black!), Pants: Missguided - here if you don't need petite, Shoes: Target (Only $30!) - I have in both black and nude!, Earrings: H&M (Available in rose gold, gold & silver!)

My blog outfits have mostly all been full of pieces from Missguided lately. I can't get enough of their deals and quality of clothing. They also think about us shorter girls too and make petite sizes which I love! I've always loved the wide leg pant look but it's so hard for me to find a pair with a length that worked for me, so this pair was a must have. For sizing, I'm wearing a 6 (with a preggie pudge), so they run pretty true to size. Wide leg pants are a great summer staple because they're so fresh and can be paired with a bright silk cami and fun accessories. 

P.S. Everything on the site is 40% off right now, so take advantage! 
This whole outfit can be purchased for less than $100 right now! 

We're off to Houston and Austin for the next few days and I'm so excited to get out of town. We have weddings and baseball tournaments, so we'll get to spend the week with lots of friends and family. I'm definitely in need of a break to relax for a few days. 

I hope you all have the best weekend!
