Style Your Senses
A Life + Style Blog for the modern millennial who wants it all.
January 6, 2017 |
Hi Friends…back with a Friday Edit today! So sorry for the radio silence around here this week. I planned to be fully back to work on Monday as I published the Whole 30 post and diving into the new routine of meal planning and clean eating, my body quickly told me that it had plans of it’s own. I was exhausted and found myself lacking motivation and inspiration. I started writing the same post 4 times and it never felt fun to talk about the topic, so I just didn’t. Instead, I caught up on back end stuff and dug myself out of my inbox…which had both been neglected over the past few months.
Over the past week everyone has been chatting about their “word of the year” and I felt frustrated that I couldn’t find a word to accurately describe how I wanted to enter into 2017. It wasn’t until I stepped back from the blog and took care of myself a little bit that I realized the word I would use to inspire me into this year and new content. That word is AWARE. I want to be aware of myself…my body, my habits, my eating, my health and how I’m spending my time. I want to be aware of my family…their needs and wants, their health, their dependency on me (especially with a new baby) and how important it is for me to be present with them mentally and physically. I also want to be aware of you guys…how you want to take in content, what you are most interested in, what’s going on and relevant in your world and how I can create posts that make your life easier. So…there ya have it…cheers to being more AWARE in 2017!!! What’s your word for the year or resolution? I’d love to hear!
Back to The Friday Edit and the top (and only!) post this week!
Whole 30 + My Why
You guys seriously blew me away with your interest, enthusiasm, and encouragement on this post. Not going to lie, writing it felt really raw, but it was also was exciting! I’m currently on Day 4 and will document my week in a post on Sunday…hint: I find it really HARD! I’m also sharing most meals over on Instastories (@styleyoursenses). See the original post HERE.
This dressing room selfie was the #1 post on Instagram this week and for good reason…THIS TOP is on sale for under $15…y’all $14.88!!!! I rounded up a ton of my sale favs below as well…the prices are crazy good.
Tons of other favorites on sale for under $30!
This cute little top is one of my favorite impulse buys from December. It was just so fun and happy hanging there in the store that I literally could not leave it behind. It’s under $50, too, so very little guilt. I wore it layered up with a festive plaid for the Holidays and plan to continue wearing it until Valentines day. So cute with boyfriend jeans or a little pleated skirt!
Gingham Button Down | Lips Top | Boyfriend Denim | Gold Earrings
This post on Instagram did really well, especially because my favorite sneakers are on sale! I seriously live in these things!
Poncho | Tights | Sneakers
I also gave you guys a heads up this week that one of my most lived-in tunic tops was marked down even further to $24! It’s the softest thing you will wear and is a great length for tights. The boots also got their final markdown and are now under $100! Both are pieces that you will wear for many seasons to come!
Moto Jacket (Under $100!) | Tunic Top (Army Green and Black available) | OTK Boots | Statement Necklace | Leopard Beanie
Spring Arrivals are flooding into stores and I honestly can’t help but get a little excited!!! This dress nearly knocked me off of my feet. I absolutely love the silhouette and Lord knows I love a good buffalo check.
Shop all new Tularosa arrivals HERE.
As a fun winter “pick me up” these new leopard flats are kind of amazing in every way. Clearly, I’m all for a good leopard print, but I love the shape and tiny heel on these…makes them perfect to dress up just a tad.
Leopard Flats (Under $100)
Tons of you commented on my quick Insta (story) snap of our new entry way runner asking who it was by and oh-em-gee I found it online for you guys. I considered sleeping on it last night because I love it so much and the price might actually surprise you! See it HERE.
One of the first projects of 2016 will be updating our other full bathroom for our little gal(s). I’m starting to get some plans together and I keep going back to this drexel inspired vanity. I would likely swap out the hardware and faucet for a gold finish (duh), but I love the shape and the price! Thoughts?
BaubleBar (you know they are my fav) just launched their first Spring collection and when I saw the tag line I did a major happy dance…LIGHTWEIGHT STATEMENT EARRINGS! My droopy ear lobes rejoice! The entire collection is amazing, but OMG these pink beauties made their way to me right away…I mean they have Valentine’s Day written allllll over them, right?
See the entire lightweight collection HERE.
Do you guys remember THIS blue dress from the Spring…so many of you loved the silhouette and the high low hemline! Well it’s back and updated for the coming months and it’s something that I am definitely going to snatch up for $88. Check out how gorgeous the back is + it comes in a beautiful emerald green! Totally bump friendly too, gals! Shop it HERE.
So, no sugar coating it, I was a “back talker” as a kid. I vividly remember it (and also remember the consequences lol), but I throughly enjoyed THIS POST on how kids who talk back might actually be more successful adults. Might be an encouraging read if any of you mamas are currently struggling with a little smarty pants!
Sales and Steals:
The LOFT clearance sale right now is really the best out there! There are SO many tops on sale for $14.88…it’s insane! Shop it HERE.
The Nordstrom Half Yealy sale ended on Tuesday, but they were real sneaky and took some additional markdowns when the sale ended…so now sale is on sale. Here are a few favorites:
These booties are the perfect shape and color and over 50% off at around $50! Definitely something you’ll wear season after season!
This plaid cape is SO good and at $22 it’s even better!!! I mean TWENTY TWO DOLLARS?!?! What a fun winter blues pick me up! Shop it HERE.
SHOPBOP just added a TON of new stuff to their on-going sale and there were some goodies for sure! This Rebecca Minkoff camera bag is a total steal!
Happy Weekend, friends! I hope that you enjoyed this long overdue Friday Edit! For those of you who will be affected by this Winter storm, stay safe and I wish you tons of relaxation and warm snuggles with your family!
