Wednesday Whereabouts + Sales Around

 
 How cute are Logan and Effie?
Vaughn isn't in school yet.  This was in the allergy doctor section, while we waited for them to call my name to get my allergy shots. // Ralph Lauren Sneakers (very similar here)
 Last Wednesday, it was Hat Day at Wheeler's school.  Yeehaw!  Before we left, she actually ended up choosing a soft bunny hat instead because this one was too itchy.
 My new J.Crew Factory goodies are wonderful!  The colorblock sweatshirt is super comfy and the necklace's quality is just as good as if I'd bought it at J.Crew.  Guess what?  Enter EXTRA25 at check-out and receive an extra 25% off everything at J.Crew Factory.  So my necklace is only $25 and it retails for $70.  My nail color for the week is Essie Plumberry.  For fit, I'm a 4/6 and got the sweatshirt in a medium, because I like mine a little roomy.
 Working. // Effie's Shoes // Socks // Sequin Heart Shirt (sold out, but I love this one and it's on sale with an additional 30% off with code TGIFALL)
 I ordered these canvases from Canvas Pop two weeks ago, and they arrived this past Friday.  Talk about quick service!  For details, they're 20x20 and 1" deep.  Their promise is that they'll print any image on canvas, whether it's from Facebook, iPhone, etc, regardless of the original image resolution.  What sold me was their 100% Love Guarantee, and it's guaranteed for life!  Maybe a Christmas gift idea?  Just a thought.  If you're interested in learning more, click here, and you'll receive $30 off your order.
 Love this little pumpkin Logan made last week at school!
 A fall view from our backyard.
Getting some shopping accomplished.  But first, Starbucks!
Logan's Camo Pants ($13 with an additional 30% with code: THIRTY) and Striped Shirt (25% off with code: TGIFALL)
Since the weather has started getting cooler, the girls have started layering up.  When they headed to the car, I had to snap a pic.  A beautiful, colorful explosion.
On Wheeler: Crewcuts Top (old, similar here) // Mini Boden Floral Skirt // Crewcuts Leopard Leggings (old, similar here and they have these too) // Socks // Morgan & Milo Shoes
On Effie: Crewcuts Top (on sale with an additional 30% off with code TGIFALL) // J.Crew Factory Heart Leggings (only $7.50 right now with code: EXTRA25) // Morgan & Milo Shoes // Vest (sold out, but I'm in love with this little Mini Boden one)

My Lidia Polo has been marked down to $57 at Tory Burch.

Piperlime: ENDS TODAY.  Take 20% off your purchase with code: ACTFAST.  This sleeveless top and this top are both in my cart.  May have to save the sleeveless one for the Spring, but it's so cute and such a great deal right now!  This leopard top would be perfect for right now.  Remember, even sale items, take an additional 25% off.

Serena & Lily: Fall Sale, for a limited time, items will go fast!

Today's high is only supposed to be 64, so I'm excited to pull my Minnetonkas out of my closet!  I'll probably be pairing with this top, vest (currently 25% off with code TGIFALL), and these leggings (currently 25% off with code TGIFALL).

The girls have pink ones too.  I just need to remember where I stored them from last year.
And right now, Nordstrom is price-matching so they're discounted.

I hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Tuesday Trends: Comfy Clothes - High & Low

 
So the other night, Lanier mentioned that he needed to get another pair of slippers.  I couldn't have agreed with him more.  I gifted him a pair a few years ago for his birthday, and he wore them so much that let's just say, I couldn't even photograph them because they were that beat up.  Yesterday morning, he called after he'd gotten his haircut and said he was driving back into work.  I told him to stop over at Nordstrom and grab himself a new pair of slippers.
Y'all, he never shops, so when he agreed I knew then how much he wanted a new pair.  He got over there and tried to send me a few pics of which ones he liked but the phone service was bad so the pics weren't going through.  He called me from the parking lot saying he'd come back another time when I could shop with him.  Since that's rare that we're both free at the same time, and the fact that he was that close to a store that sold good shoes, I told him to go back in.  This time though, I gave him specifics.  I told him to ask someone that worked there to get him a pair of Ugg Slippers, since I love mine.  And then I added that he should get himself a nice comfortable outfit to pair with it.  "Soft clothes" as one of my sister's friends calls them.  I know he had no idea what I meant, but the specialists at Nordstrom are so good about figuring out exactly what you're looking for that I knew they'd be able to help him out.
About fifteen minutes later he called saying he'd found a shirt, sweatpants and slippers.  Success!  He wore them last night after work, and they all fit great and looked super comfy.  Exactly what he'd wanted.  Since I couldn't talk him into standing for a pic, here are the best photos I could get last night, while he was watching Monday Night Football.

Happy Monday! Girls' Weekend Re-Cap

 Happy Monday!  I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend.  I had the best time with my girlfriends this weekend, but by Sunday afternoon I was so anxious to hurry up and get home to see the kids and Lanier.  I know it's good to be apart from your kids every once in awhile, it's healthy, but I think being away again after just having gone out of town two weekends ago, it was too much.  Lanier took care of the kids by himself.  The weather was beautiful, so they spent a lot of time outside, but when I came home yesterday, all of the laundry was finished and the house was clean!  Talk about a nice homecoming!

Over the weekend, my friends Beth, Julie, Emily, and Kristen stayed at a cottage outside of Charleston.  When we all had just one child, we used to have a recurring playdate once a week.  As we started to have more children, and our lives just got busier with our kids starting preschool it became harder for us to get together as often.  While we don't see each other as much as we'd like, we do stay in touch and weekends like this help us all catch up on each others' lives.  One of our friends just moved to Charleston earlier this year, so it was a good excuse for the rest of us here to make a trip to visit her.

On Friday, we ate in and enjoyed salmon and caviar, crab cakes, shrimp and grits, etc.
On Saturday morning, we headed to Java Java at Freshfield's for some breakfast.  The warm Nutella croissant was amazing!
We visited The Sanctuary at Kiawah too, and enjoyed some Bloody Marys.  How beautiful is this tablescape?
We rested up back at the cottage before heading out for some dock fun.
It was warmer that I thought!
On Saturday night, we went out to dinner at Wild Olive!  So good that I'll definitely be going back there again! // Equipment Top (old, very similar and on sale here, and an additional 20% off with code: ACTFAST) // Marc by Marc Jacobs Crossbody // J.Crew Toothpick Jeans in Classic Rinse // Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace // Tory Burch Wedges (old, similar here) // Kate Spade Marmalade Studs
I'm sure you've guessed from all of these photos, but my friend's cottage was pretty amazing.  Straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel.
 Our last meal before heading home.
The breakfast at Sunset Bistro was pretty awesome!  The fries were hands down some of the best I've ever had, and the veggie omelette was pretty great too.  The perfect way to end our trip.  Can't wait to do it all again next year!

I hope y'all have a great start to your week!  After a warm weekend, it's freezing here today!

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that Wing Haven has Storytime in the Secret Garden tomorrow from 10am-11am.  For more info on upcoming events for children happening at Wing Haven, click here.  Be sure to register ahead of time, as space is limited.  Halloween at the Haven is this Saturday!
