Thoughts for Thursday

Jan 10, 2019

On Tuesday Night I headed to Charlotte to see Justin Timberlake and had the best time. He put on a great show! I will say our seats were not the best and the sheer amount of people there gave me anxiety but it was a really fun night!

The blouse I am wearing below I now have in 3 colors I love it so much. It runs on the large side so def size down, I am wearing an XS.

We had dinner at Essex and it was so yummy. It got me thinking would you guys like a post on Charlotte restaurants I have tried and liked? I know I don’t live there but I do visit frequently. Just a thought!

We sampled lots of dishes. We had the fried cauliflower and zucchini chips (pictured below) stuffed mushrooms, margarita flatbread, brussels caesar salad, and bang bang grouper. Honestly we loved every single thing

I have been partnering with Rent the Runway to try their Unlimited package and I have to say I am loving it!! They graciously offered you guys a code for 40% off your first month – use code NATTYNATPERK40. This dress was in my latest order and I have been living in it. You can also shop it full price HERE

Cheese spread from last weekend.

I made it for a few of my favorite boys. My next door neighbors Rick and Gary plus their friend Bryan and Craig.

I am completely and totally addicted to Schitt’s Creek. It is quite possibly the best show ever. If you are not watching it you need to be.

I am just a little excited because my new cookbook by GP just arrived. Lots of healthy recipes!

The Clean Plate

Speaking of books another book I am loving is One Day In December. It was such a quick and fun romantic read.

My outfit last Friday night. My Joie blouse is on major sale 60% off! Plus I swear by these high rise black skinny jeans- most flattering jeans ever.

I keep wanting to try Rothy’s flats. Have any of you tried them and what do you think??

Super easy lunch I have been loving: quinoa, arugula, red onion, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and drizzle all with Trader Joe’s Green Goddess dressing.

Love this quote.

    Hi! Oh I am LOVING my Rothys! I have several pairs now and they are super comfortable and easy to clean. Be careful as they are a little addicting! Lol! I recommend the leopard points as your first pair too! Sizing for Rothys is a little odd though. Get your normal size in the round toe style. Go .5 to a full size larger in the points and Loafers. I have the black sneakers too – get your regular size in that style.

    I love Rothy’s! They are super comfortable and wear well. I have a few pairs (including the ones pictured) and I just washed them all last night and they look as good as new – I would highly recommend!

  3. Dana says:

    I just got my first pair of Rothy’s – the same ones that you posted but with a round toe and LOVE them! Super comfortable but make sure to size up a half size, they run a bit small!

  4. Jennifer says:

    Yes, Schitts Creek is the best!! I got hooked this Summer and can’t wait for new episodes to finally air in the US~

  5. Kristen Hughes says:

    I just ordered 2 pairs (camo & cheetah) last week and I love them! So comfy. We’ll see how they hold up but I believe you can wash them?

  6. Tammy says:

    Good Morning Natalie,

    YES!!! I would love if you started a Charlotte dining guide and things to do shops ect…That would just be awesome. Have a great week!

  7. Caroline says:

    Rothys are a MUST!!! I have never left a comment and I’m here to let you know you need to purchase today! I walk to work in them, wear them all day, walk all the way home and could keep wearing them! They are incredible….. all NYC girls wear the point but I personally have the regular flat and I don’t think you can go wrong! Order today!

  8. Jenny says:

    Totally agree. Rothys are amazeballs. For sizing go up 1/2 size on loafer and pointed toe, true to size for rounded toe. I haven’t tried the sneaker. But seriously- get some and never look back.

  9. C. Y. says:

    I loved my Rothys until I washed them the second time. I followed the directions but they shrunk and now give me horrible blisters if I wear them for more than a couple of hours. Also, despite washing them mine smell horrible!

  10. Erin says:

    LOVE my rothy’s!!!! So comfortable!!!!!

  11. Jenna says:

    Would love a Charlotte post!!

  12. Kristen says:

    I know some people that have them and the exact pair above and love them. I do hear they can make your feet stink but what flat shoe doesn’t!? Lol.

  13. Linda says:

    I am intrigued by Rothy’s shoes too… a little hard to take the plunge without trying them on. If you find out more or get a pair, could you share info about the fit/quality/comfort? Thanks! 🙂

  14. Kristen says:

    I LOVED One Day in December too – so cute!

  15. Anne Smith says:

    Thanks for the book recommendation. Picking up One Day in December today.

  16. Jenn Workman says:

    Definitely yes for a CLT dining post!

  17. Kara says:

    What size are you wearing in the black Joie blouse? I love it, and it’s a great price right now!
