Thoughts For Thursday

Apr 7, 2016

This afternoon I am off to Dallas for the Reward Style Blog conference.  This will be my 3rd year going and I am so excited to see some of my friends from far away.  We only get to see each other once a year so we always have fun!  Nothing better than some girl time, although I am sure I will be missing my kids by the second day!  

I am the worst at packing and always wait til the last minute.  My mom came over last night and tried  to help me pick out outfits.  A few things that made the cut- and those mini bottles are because I am a nervous flyer, it makes me so anxious.

White Blouse (also in black) | Peach Dress | Blue Clutch | Geometric Dress  (on sale)| Stripe Dress | Embroidered Dress |

Necklace | Blush Crossbody | Tassel Earrings | Halter suit | Sunglasses | Wedges | Cover-up

Many of these items are still 25% for the Shopbop Friends and Family Event with code INTHEFAM. 

This week my new pillows for our couch arrived.  They are from Gathered by Lindsey Cheek,  a fabulous little store in Wilmington, NC.  Lindsey and I are instagram friends and I just adore her and her style.  Stay tuned because we have a fun giveaway coming up to win some killer pillows from her shop!

I got my hair highlighted yesterday.  I get so excited about getting my hair done because of the quiet time to sit and read a magazine and chill for 2 hours.  I am still loving my Barrington Tote, it is the perfect size for everyday.

I was looking for a quick lunch and my hairdresser recommended Chicken Salad Chick.  I was a little skeptical at first but my lunch was awesome.  I had the pimento cheese and jalapeño chicken salad per his request and it was so delicious.

A few of my purchases from the Shopbop Friends and Family sale arrived yesterday and these are 2 of my favorites.  They both come to under $100 with the discount.  I love the tee so much I ordered a second color.  Sizing wise I am wearing a size 1.

Her dress is from Baby Gap

Two new scores from Target for Frances- I mean they both are beyond adorable and under $10!

Bathing suit | Cover-up

I am loving this built in bar with gray cabinets.  May recreate this when we do our addition.

I just downloaded this book to read next.  I have heard such amazing things about it.

Happy Thursday!

  6. You should look into CALM for flying ( – I saw it on The Skinny Confidential, and she said it's basically all natural/organic xanax lol! I'm ordering some and can't wait to try it (a lot of people that reviewed it said they use it before bed to help relax and go to sleep). Have fun in Dallas! xx

  7. How cute is that swimsuit and cover up! I'm going for the day on Friday since it's so close. Been so looking forward to seeing you!!

    Take a Xanax girlfriend! I have terrible anxiety when I fly but if I take a Xanax with a glass of wine I'm good to go ✈️
