Tuesday Trends: Randoms

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that my friend Volree (and her sweet two-month old girl!) and I went out to lunch at Mayo Bird today.  It's a great little spot on East Boulevard (open 7am-4pm).  We went to try out their chicken salad sandwiches (they have over 15 different kinds).  My friend Courtney said their coffee is really good there too.  I'll have to go back and check it out sometime because I'm definitely going back, that's for sure.
 We got the sliders so we could check out different kinds.  They were all pretty much delicious.  My favorite was definitely the one with apples, almonds and walnuts in it.  P. S. Isn't her baby the sweetest?
So a few of you wanted info on my cognac tote from the pic on IG.  It's the Tory Burch Bombe Tote.  The photo above was taken last month on this post.  Unfortunately, it's sold out, but here's a similar one that Tory Burch carries that I love just as much! // Electric Snake Tieks
Can we talk about Vaughn?  He was obsessed with her.  Like instead of asking for more food, he wanted "Babees" - how he says baby.  Everything in his world has an 's' on the end.  I think he maybe kissed her little head ten times while we were there.
I had some readers on IG wanting to know about my wrap.  Now that I've got some down time while the kiddos nap, I thought I'd lay it out and let you see it.  And the best part?  It's only $38!
This wrap was perfect to wear out today - 59 degree weather!  So soft and cozy!
It's like wearing a comfy blanket, but without all the bulk.
 I also had to run pick up Effie's tennis shoes that came in, and couldn't resist these little Converse Chuck Taylors for Vaughn.  I'm usually an all velcro kind of mom - the easier to put on, the better.  But I just couldn't turn these down.  They fit his little personality too well. And they're currently on sale for $24.97.  // Marc by Marc Jacobs Mouse Flats // J.Crew Miller Wash Stretch Jeans (on sale for $70 with code: SHOPFORFALL, originally $125)

Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday Trends: RUGSUSA Rug Review

The hooks under the mantle are there for the holidays.  We hang all our stockings on them.
We still have one more picture to hang above the black chair.  You'll notice I have no coffee table books or little decorations out.  It's pretty much impossible for them to stay there with four little ones running around the house.  Maybe one day, when they get older.
We've been in our bungalow for eight years now.  Ever since we moved in we always had a sisal rug in our den.  We first had it in our condo, and then transferred it to this house.  It was a great neutral and rarely showed stains or wear.  Enter FOUR kiddos and a dog.  It started showing everything!

I'd been on the hunt for a printed rug for awhile, but couldn't settle on anything that I really liked and that could withstand a spill a little better.  Well, when RugsUSA was kind enough to ask me to review one of their rugs, I knew this was my chance to pick out the perfect one.  And we definitely found it!  This Turquoise Traditional Rug is a great color and hasn't showed any wear since we got it about two months ago.  It matches the room so well and I love that it already has a great distressed look.  Use code: FALL60 and get it for 60% off, plus free shipping!

If you haven't ordered from RugsUSA yet, you should!  I check back all the time because they're constantly running sales, sometimes they mark everything down to 70% off.  That's when I ordered this one.  It's currently 60% off with code: FALL60.  I haven't used it yet because I'm waiting to change over Logan's room into a big boy room and I'll use it then.  Today, they're even running a huge Fall sale.  Check it out here.

Hope y'all are having a terrific Tuesday!  The weather here is definitely Fall!  LOVE it!  It has FINALLY arrived!!

Loving Lately for Fall + OOTD

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend!  FALL is finally here!  If you had asked me at the beginning of the summer that I'd be looking forward to Fall this much, I probably would've told you you were crazy.  Summer is by far my favorite season, but once September hits, I'm craving cool, crisp weather.  And this weekend, the weather here was unbelievable.  It was still pretty warm, but there was a nice breeze.  Needless to say, we spent as much time outside as we could.  I'm not sure if it's just my kids or are all kids like this, but my kids get dirty when they play outside.  Not like a little dirt on their knee, I'm talking dirt smeared on their faces from making "salads" (leaves and dirt) as chefs and digging for treasures as pirates.  I'm totally okay with it and find it awesome that use their imagination so much and get along so well when they play, but bath time was an everyday occurrence this weekend, rather than every other day.  So they're heading to school this morning SUPER CLEAN!  Kind of sad about them heading back to school today.  Just love hanging out with them so much, when there's no schedule!

With Fall finally here, get this Pumpkin Chai Nest candle.  No, seriously.  You will not be disappointed.  I've purchased this candle every Fall for the last three years.  I never get tired of it.  It's not a way over the top strong scent, but the perfect subtle autumn scent.  Ships for FREE.  It's also part of Neiman Marcus' Better Together Promo.  More details below...

Love these Joe's Jeans Silk Pants for Fall.  And they were just marked down too.  They'd go with so much in your closet.  Pair it with black, ivory, camel, etc.

I love wearing darker nails in the Fall/Winter months.  This week I'm wearing this color above, a dark burgundy red.  My other favorites include: After School Boy Blazer and Shearling Darling.

I was definitely going to say this Clare V Foldover Leopard Clutch has been one of my favorite purchases for Fall, but it's been so popular that unfortunately it's sold out.
Thankfully, the Flat Clutch Supreme is still available.  And I really love it just as much.  The pretty leopard and calf hair on it is just so soft and the colors pair with so much for Fall.

Tory Burch brought back the Vintage Vachetta color of Miller Sandals!  I'd really wanted them during their last promo last month, but they sold out of them too quickly.  While I love the gold Millers for Summer, this brown color is perfectly muted for Fall.  They run true to size.

I had a picture last week with this monogrammed glass and had a few of you email and ask where I purchased it.
I actually got them awhile ago on RLL, but checked RLL over the weekend, and they're available through tomorrow. // Polka Dot PJ Set (25% off with code: LEAF) // Ugg Slippers

My OOTD for the first day of Fall...
Vest (old color, similar here and here) // Navy Printed Blouse (old, similar here) // Essie Berry Naughty // Tory Burch Miller Sandals // Stacked Ring Set // Watch

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Fashion Friday: OOTDs Lately

On Wednesday morning, it was finally cool enough to wear a long-sleeved shirt.  Love how soft this one is.
Top (currently 25% off with code: SHOPFORFALL) // Watch // Shorts // Polish // Flats (same style, very similar color here - true to size)

On Wednesday,  I went out to dinner and to a musical.  It had been cloudy all day, and the sun finally came out that night!
Top (I'm a 4/6 and wear a Small) // Jeans (true to size, extra 30% off with code: SHOPFORFALL) // Flats (This style and color Reva is selling out quickly.  If you like the old style with the elastic on the back, get them now because Tory is slowly changing all of her Reva flats over to no elastic in the back, like these.) // Clutch // Watch // Earrings c/o

He wanted in on a pic too!  // Logan's Camo Shorts (extra 30% off with code: SHOPFORFALL)

Vest (similar here and here) // Camo Top (this one is from last Fall, but here's a very similar one, and it's on sale with an extra 30% off with code: SALE30) // Shoes

For all the attempts at trying to get Logan to look up and smile, he finally did!  His new haircut makes him look so old!
Top (On sale! I'm a 4/6 and have it in a 6.) // Earrings c/o // Shorts // Necklace c/o // YSL Lip in #34 Rose Asarine // Sandals

We celebrated Logan's 3rd Birthday last night with family.  He loved all of the extra attention!  I'll be back with more photos next week.  I feel like he's grown a foot already!

I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!  I already know this one is going to be better than last weekend, since Effie and Logan are well.  Can't wait!  Check back tomorrow, I'll be sharing a Game Day look with you.

TGIF, Y'all!
