Hey gals! Happy Happy Friday! I’m knee deep in Landry’s “Barbies and Brunch” Birthday party that we are hosting tomorrow. I swear I told myself that I was keeping it small…only 5 school friends, casual play, brunch foods…and then I’m all up on ETSY ordering die cut Barbie Garland and mylar balloons. What is wrong with me??? Anyway, I hope that it turns out cute, because I have one super excited Barbie-loving-4-year-old to impress! This week was SO fun and BUSY on the blog and actually one of the most rewarding weeks so far. Here’s everything all packaged in one Friday Edit!
As most of you know, we finished Whole30 this week and wow what a journey. So hard, and yet rewarding at the same time. I’m beyond proud of myself that I completely went an entire month without sugar, bread and fast food…that’s a big deal for this Southern Girl, y’all. I wanted to pay it forward to you guys and thank you for your incredible support over the past month and I created “The Ultimate Whole30 Survival Guide” for those of you who might consider taking on a journey of your own. It was by far the most popular post of the week and will probably end up being one of the most popular posts I’ve ever published. That makes me so happy, because I really do think that taking 30 days to re-evaluate your eating habits can actually change your life. p.s. my husband lost 17lbs you guys! SEVENTEEN! And we didn’t even think that he had anything to lose in the first place.

Style Board Series | Volume 1: Week 2
This week we talked transitional and versatile #momstyle + a chic workwear outfit option. This tunic was definitely the winner winner chicken dinner! A great, versatile piece that you’ll want to live in and it’s under $50. Still stock left HERE. Shop both boards below!
The Valentine’s Day Gift Guide was also a total hit! I *almost* skipped this post, but am thankful that I didn’t. You guys continue to tell me that you like Gift Guide posts not only for the gift ideas for others, but maybe you use them for a few ideas for yourself…I promise that your secret is safe with me!
The most popular items were the Gucci Flats (duh, you wanted to price those babies out), the grey suede bag, and the layered gold necklace.
Ultra Feminine Ruffle Dress + BUMPDATE | I also shared this femme pink dress, a ton of other cute Valentine’s Day Date Night Essentials and a 28 week BUMPDATE in Wednesday’s post! See it HERE.

This boho transitional look is great to wear from now through Spring. I ordered this as a dress, but it’s pretty see through so I’ll be wearing it as a tunic. That said, I love the fit and length and think that it’s darling with tights. When it’s warmer, you can always wear with a slip under.

Since the Superbowl is Sunday, I have entertaining on my mind. I LOVE the idea of keeping it simple and making a big crockpot chili or crockpot fajitas and serving it up as a nacho or chili bar with all of these toppings! Details HERE.
Ok, ladies! These sandals are a must have. They just just just came online and since I wore my similar style literally down to the sole last summer I’m snagging a pair pre-season. These are the most comfortable style, you can throw them on with anything and oh my they come in BLUSH! I’m normally not so pushy, but you will LOVE these…especially for $69! Available in tan, black and blush…
Lace Up Sandals
I was looking for some bathroom inspiration photos to show those of you who aren’t following along on Instagram that we decided to re-tile our bathroom floor!! We’re going with an old school black and white penny tile and I’m quite excited. It goes down today, so look for some peeks on Instagram stories!! As I quickly fell down the Pinterest rabbit hole, I came across this bathroom design that I’ve long long admired. The entire tween room and bathroom has a “Kate Spade” theme and I swoon every time I see it. The original designer is Texas based Shay Geyer, but you can see the entire space in this House Beautiful article.
I know that I can’t be the only one thinking swimwear, right?! In my case, I’m dreading the every thought of being 1 month postpartum when the pool opens, but hopefully in your case you can’t wait! I came across this suit and this that it’s the perfect mix of sexy + sophistication. I adore the one shoulder and classic ivory. If I were beach body ready, this baby would definitely be in my cart! Shop it in a one piece HERE and two piece HERE.
Shop all new Swim arrivals HERE.
Welp, this is cute for $45! Off the shoulder + a bow back for under $50, yes please…in both colors! Also comes in blush pink! Shop it HERE.
Off the Shoulder Top $45
Lots of you asked / commented about the turquoise cuff in my Instagrams this week and I wanted to show it to you up close. Does turquoise jewelry make anyone else SO ready for warm weather??? Sure does for me! Shop it HERE.
Sales and Steals:
These peep toe booties were a big hit in the Sale section of the daily emails! If you haven’t snagged them yet, they are currently on sale for under $100 and great for transition! Shop in two colors HERE.
You guys continue to love these easy tops that are on sale, so I’ll continue to find them for you! This chambray swing top is SO versatile and perfect for white denim (pair with the booties above, too). It’s on sale for under $30 and will be a closet staple, promise. Shop it HERE.
Is it just me or does this model resemble the “Cash me outside how bow dah” girl?? She’s widly inappropriate and misbehaved, but I cannot help but find all the memes hysterically funny!
An awesome Athleisure staple on sale…this Nike sweatshirt is great to throw on after a workout or to run around town in. On sale for under $50 (from $80)! Shop it HERE.
Happy Happy Weekend, friends! Thanks for reading along with another Friday Edit!
