Even though TECHNICALLY it is spring, it doesn’t quite feel like it here in Indiana! So while sleeveless dresses are great for summer, I sure do appreciate a dress with longer sleeves in the chillier Indiana springs! I am excited to be partnering with Macy’s to highlight this adorable dress by Taylor. From Mother’s Day to a spring wedding, this dress is perfect! The fit is flattering, the color is fabulous, and you can even wear a regular bra!!! (<–Anyone else get super excited about that!?!) Macy’s is the perfect dress destination! During their Friends & Family event, you can save 30% on this dress with code FRIEND!
The past few years of teaching have been incredibly challenging for me. I have had several problems with my thyroid and digestion. In the end of March of 2017, I read the book The Magnolia Story, and it literally changed my life. I don’t say that lightly. Throughout the entire book I read story after story of how Chip and Jo trusted God and some pretty incredible things happened. I remember when I got done reading the book, I got down on my knees. When I was on my knees, I was praying and saying that I didn’t know what else I was even qualified to do. But I was trusting God to provide something for me that I could do for a job. I honestly didn’t know what it would be. But here’s what I did know – I am good with kids, and I am good at shopping!
While the world is full of negativity, I am sure blessed to be surrounded by a powerhouse of positivity and love! I am excited to be doing this blog post to introduce you to some very important women in my life – meet my mom and sisters! No matter what you do in life, it is always important to be surrounded by cheerleaders! When I first started this blog almost a year ago, that is exactly what these women are – my biggest cheerleaders (second only to my sweet husband, Briton! He’s the biggest cheerleader of them all!) A huge thank you to Sole Society for providing us with the cutest shoes and bags!
Who’s ready for wedding season!?! I may not be in the majority, but I totally love getting all dressed up! Perhaps it’s because those 6 and 7 year olds in my classroom don’t really care about my outfit choice. And I have to be in comfortable outfits all day at school! But wedding season allows me to up my game! I am excited to be partnering with Lord & Taylor to bring your some great beauty products to up your wedding pre-game and two head to toe looks to help you turn heads without outdoing the bride! Now is the time to shop at Lord & Taylor because during their Friends & Family event you can save even more!! You can save 30% on almost every item in the store and 15% on almost all beauty items! Use code FRIENDS! Lord & Taylor is the best priced secret in town!
I don’t know about you, but I am ready for spring and summer to arrive!! I mean, hello, it is April! Last week though in Indiana, we had a few snow showers! Pretty sure that April SNOW showers do not bring May flowers!! But it’s time to start thinking ahead to spring and summer! If you are looking to build your spring and summer wardrobe, Kohl’s is your go-to destination for great deals for your entire family! I am excited to be partnering with Kohl’s to bring you four great outfits to spruce up your warm weather wardrobe! But not only can you get a great deal on the items, you can also earn $10 Kohl’s Cash for every $50 you spend now through April 22, 2018!
With spring break officially over, it is time to head back to reality! But let’s be honest, without reality, those times away would not be appreciated nearly as much! We recently enjoyed a wonderful trip to Florida with my family! It is always so nice to get away! Brit and I have this joke that while the times away with the kids are fun, we like to call them a “trip” rather than a “vacation”! While traveling with kids may not be quite as relaxing as traveling without them, here are a few tips for your next trip with kids to help things run a little smoother!
Don’t you just love it when a piece you pick up can be worn in several ways?!? I am excited to be partnering with Macy’s to bring your three pieces by the brand 1.STATE and two different ways to wear them. And on a side note, spring weather cannot get here soon enough!! After this “spring” photo shoot, I couldn’t feel my fingers or toes! Oh, Indiana!
If you are anything like me, you may have written off JCPenney as a store that our moms used to shop at. But I am here to tell you, JCPenney has stepped up their game, and they feature great brands to help your entire family look stylish without breaking the bank! Did you know they carry established brands like Nike and New Balance? But they also carry brands that I am currently loving like Belle + Sky, ANA, and Bold Elements. Their entire women’s department is full of great items to help you look your best this spring at affordable prices. I am excited to be collaborating with JCPenney and share all of my great finds for this spring!
I am so excited to be partnering with Sole Society to bring you some great accessories to pick up for this spring and summer! In case you haven’t noticed, I have become obsessed with all things Sole Society! From their handbags to their amazing shoes, Sole Society is my favorite place to shop for accessories! Did you know that they are part of the Camuto Group – as in, Vince Camuto! No wonder I love this place so much!
Who’s ready for spring break!?!? Two hands up for this girl! You may have seen my Spring Getaway post with Nordstrom last week, but here are a few other options you might want to consider adding to your suitcase! Every year, my little family of four join my parents and my sister with her family down in Florida in the Orlando area! (And no… we aren’t doing Disney. Oh my goodness!! WAY too busy for me this time of year!) This has been a crazy, busy school year! I always look forward to spring break! It is a time for total relaxation! We don’t do much, but it sure is nice to be in the warmth and be surrounded by family!
