Next Thursday my husband, bebe and I leave to spend a little over a week in Hawaii and I can't believe the trip is finally here. It seems like we've been talking about it - out big tip as a family of three - for months. This weekend will be busy, busy getting organized and I'm hoping to pack as much as I can! It's nice packing to go somewhere that's a completely different climate because we aren't currently wearing any of our warm weather clothes that we'll be taking, meaning I can pack them up in advance. The more prepared I can be when traveling with a babe, the better! (read on to get the sales + steals)

Silk Wrap Blouse

November 7, 2017

Have you heard/seen?! Cuyana has popped up in Dallas! Their retail location is in Northpark Mall - between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom - and it's stocked with most all of the same timeless essentials you see on their website - and they do in-store personalizing for the leather pieces (!). Sally and I have been fans of Cuyana since they launched years ago (even got to chat with one of the founders about their first collections while she was in Dallas for the pop-up launch) and the continue to wow us with well-made pieces that are carefully detailed and truly timeless. Based on the foundation of "fewer, better," Cuyana has a core collection of pieces (clothing, leather goods, and accessories) that never leave the line and each season they introduce a few new styles or limited edition colors. You've seen me wear the Silk Slip Dress multiple times over the years (still freaking love it) but today I'm showing off a recent silk acquisition: the Silk Wrap Blouse.

I can’t remember when this wrap blouse style was released, all I know is that I saw it and immediately wanted it on my body. In typical Cuyana fashion, it’s not just a typical wrap top…it has a flattering v-neckline (duh) but with concealed baby snaps so that the piece that “wraps” stays put. Genius. It also has a pleat on the back – a nice touch that also makes for an easy, drapy fit. The front part where the wrapping action is happening is secured at the bottom and has really pretty pleating detail…so pretty that you really don’t need to tuck it in (like I did) if you don’t want to.

If you’re having hearts for eyes over the blouse I get it. But hurry! Sizes in the all white are really selling out. Definitely get on the waitlist to be notified if your size is gone! That said, there’s a nude and white stripe version that’s gorgeous and fully stocked.

And…in case you were wondering…yes, I am wearing the same J.Crew jeans and same earrings Sally wore in her post from last Friday. My own jeans (we have the same pair) but borrowed the earrings. Because we like to twin and we’re also good at sharing.

All I want to do right now is buy jeans and sweaters, but our weather here in Dallas is trying to tell me differently. This week we had one day that actually felt like fall and the rest were in the 80's. Next week looks to be the exact same. Such. A. Tease. Come on fall. I need to shop these sales! (read on to get the sales + steals)

This + That:

  • A. FAVORITE WATCH // “Be The Difference #bthediff” (Love this girl! Hannah Hoover is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and Molly and are so inspired by her #bthediff campaign and commitment to encouraging people who are making a difference in the lives of others)

  • C. FAVORITE INSTAGRAM // @blue_print_store (I get major art envy and lust from all the amazing pieces this Dallas-based interiors store posts!)

Some Sales:

  • Ann Taylor: Extra 40% off all sale styles! (This is pretty in the black and has good reviews!)
  • Banana Republic: The Friends and Family event! 40% off regular priced items with code BRFAMILY. (I must have a thing for black tops because this one is also so.good. For someone who wears a lot of white tees – this and this could be a cute upgrade to wear with jeans.)

Lots of good deals to be had! (I had been eyeing this sweater which somehow sold out in the blink of an eye, so now I’m feeling like I need to track it down. Must be good?! Still love this. Especially how they styled it on the model. And another sweatshirt I may just have to add to my arsenal?)
  • J.Crew Factory: Take 50% off the cold weather shop! (These are a steal!)
  • LOFT: Extra 40% off all sale styles! (Generally not into prints but there is something about this that I love.)

  • West Elm: 20-40% off sofas, sectionals, chairs, benches, and more. (Obsessed with the brass legs on this!)

Puff Sleves + Statement Earrings

November 3, 2017

This outfit has been worn on more than one occasion when I'm trying to "dress up" but still feel comfortable with a baby on my hip. $40 shirts with fun details like puffed sleeves and pearl buttons are great for that type of thing, don't you know? Truth be told I usually have my diaper bag slung over one shoulder and black slides on my feet but the whole look clearly looks more polished with pumps and a sleek clutch. To go along with all the easy to clean tops and jeans I'm wearing on repeat I pair an eye-catching statement earring. These Lilly Earrings are even prettier in person...I fell for them after scrolling through the curated selection of baubles on Lola + Lina (a jewelry site you NEED to know about - they have the best eye!) and they're such a great neutral, they go with almost anything!
