Instagram Roundup

Good morning, lovelies!!! Our glorious two days of sun are behind us, and it is supposed to be dreary and rainy for the next four days. I’m ready to kick El Niño to the curb, I don’t know about the rest of you.

But anyway.

This weekend there are some AMAZING sales online. Rather than writing a dedicated weekend sales post, I am going to sprinkle them throughout this post as they pertain to what I’m wearing and then do a little summary at the end.

We took this picture the day we left the Hyatt Chesapeake. All I can think of when I look at this picture is that Instagram Husband video, which starts out like this: “Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me… and a brick wall.” I giggle every time I see this picture.

"Behind every cute girl on Instagram is a guy like me, and a brick wall."

So I find it ironic that post got the most likes I have EVER HAD on one Instagram post. We just snapped it with my iPhone before breakfast that morning in one take. It makes my husband crazy when he spends so much time getting creative shots with his expensive camera, and the quick iPhone snaps get more engagement. Bwahaha.

SALE ALERT: Splendid has 30% off EVERYTHING with the code MEMDAY16. I ordered that white Crinkle Gauze Top directly from them, and their ordering process is super easy. Shipping is free both ways, and it came in one of those bags that you can reuse if you need to make a return. The top is also at Nordstrom, if you prefer ordering from them. They are price matching so you get the same price there. The sale also includes my beloved Draped Waffle-Knit Thermal Hoodie. I have it in Swan and Black. YOU NEED AT LEAST ONE OF THESE. You can thank me later.

Speaking of that waffle-knit hoodie, I wore it one day this week with my LOFT Mixed Media Tank and Joe’s Rolled Hem Denim Shorts.

The Perfect Casual Summer Outfit: LOFT Mixed Media Tank in Pink Zinnia, Splendid Draped Waffle Knit Thermal Hoodie in Swan, Joe's Jeans Distressed Rolled Hem Denim Shorts, and Sam Edelman Greta Sandals with Striped Tote

Joe’s Rolled Hem Denim Shorts in Petra (or non-distressed Rolled Hem Denim Shorts $33% OFF!)
Sam Edelman Greta Sandals (these come in a ton of colors!) // similar striped tote

I looove those shorts. They are so soft and comfortable. I bought them when Bloomingdales was having their Denim Days event so I got them on sale. Right now, the non-distressed version is on sale at Nordstrom. They are almost identical. I ordered them both from Bloomies and returned the non-distressed pair. (At the time, they were the same price.) All that to say, you can’t go wrong with either one, so get the cheaper pair.

Next up, I posted this collage of LOFT pieces on sale. These items are all still available. The floral shirt is not on sale, but the dress and scarf are. The coral tank is very limited in sizes, but I love this thing. I wear it all the time under my Splendid Splendid Draped Waffle-Knit Thermal Hoodie with shorts or jeans. Prices below reflect the sale prices, as they will be calculated when you put them in your shopping cart.


Mixed Media Tank $11 // Verano Linen Shirttail Tee (not on sale currently) // Whale Scarf $17
Diamond Double V Maxi Dress $35 //  Romeo Block Heel Sandal c/o Payless

Details on this outfit can be found in THIS POST.


I wore this next outfit one day this week. This dolman tee is another Splendid top. I am so in love with this brand right now, can you tell? LOL!!! Nordstrom is price matching because of the Splendid sale. This material is very thin and drapey. I love it, and with the 30% off, it is only $47. I’m also wearing the Stella & Dot Sunray Pendant Necklace, but I removed the pendant for a simple collar necklace. I really like this mini-statement necklace for more casual outfits. The sunray pendant is gorgeous. (I wore it HERE.) It’s nice to have both options.

earrings, necklace, bracelets via my Stella & Dot (earn DOT DOLLARS!!!)

SALE ALERT: Stella & Dot (I’m a rep) is running their popular Dot Dollars promotion right now. This means you earn $25 Dot Dollars for every $50 you spend from May 16, 2016 through June 17, 2016. Then on June 23rd, you will receive an email notifying you that your Dot Dollars promo codes have been added to your account. Each code earned represents $25 Dot Dollars. You can apply $25 Dot Dollars to every $50 you spend between June 23, 2016 – July 5, 2016. It’s a pretty sweet deal, and a great way to update your accessory wardrobe.

Details on my new favorite running shorts (and tank) can be found in THIS POST.


This was a sneak peek at my utility vest style collab with 3 other fashion bloggers.

Easy Livin’ Tees sent me a couple of tees to try out. They are sooo soft, especially this one. I love the dolman sleeves.

And I posted this last night to feature the new kate spade new york orchard street hemsley. This bag was given to me to help facilitate the post I published yesterday about their new summer collection.

Finally, I posted this last weekend from the Hyatt Chesapeake. I was super excited to see it featured on the LIKEtoKNOW.it Instagram account last night!

About the bag: I picked it up on super duper clearance sale at Nordstrom Rack. I’ve had  my eye on this style for ages, so when I saw it drastically reduced, I grabbed it. The only color still available was this Pearl Blush, which it turns out, I really like. I did find it at Amazon, but I only paid $179 and it is $276 at Amazon. I know, ouch. I share those prices just so you know what you CAN get this bag for if you are patient and look around. If you love it, $276 love it, then go for it.

And that’s a wrap! As promised, below is a roundup of the best sales online this weekend.

Weekend Sales You Don’t Want To Miss

Splendid: 30% off EVERYTHING with the code MEMDAY16.

Stella & Dot: Dot Dollars

Earn $25 Dot Dollars for every $50 you spend from May 16, 2016 through June 17, 2016. Then on June 23rd, you will receive an email notifying you that your Dot Dollars promo codes have been added to your account. Each code earned represents $25 Dot Dollars. You can apply $25 Dot Dollars to every $50 you spend between June 23, 2016 – July 5, 2016. It’s a pretty sweet deal, and a great way to update your accessory wardrobe.

Full disclosure, I’m a S&D rep, and I’m linking to my shop. If you have any issues with your order, email me and I will help you work it out. The customer service at Stella & Dot is fantastic.

White House Black Market: 30% off EVERYTHING. Get your unique discount code online — it will be at the top of their webpage.

WHBM doesn’t often run sales this big, so it is definitely worth checking out. I love their stuff. It’s very high quality, the styles are nice for women in the 35-55 age range, and if you are looking for work wear, they definitely have you covered.

I find their clothing to run a bit large, so I sometimes wear a small and sometimes a medium. For pants and dresses, I have to try on both the 6 and the 8. I usually order both sizes and return what doesn’t work for me. I don’t think they provide free return shipping, so I often go to the mall to take care of my returns. I know, I probably spend more on gas than I would on return shipping, but it gals me to pay for shipping. LOL! Besides, I usually find different things in the store that I didn’t see online. It’s fun to shop both ways.

LOFT: Tops starting at $8; Shorts starting at $25; Dresses, Skirts & Pants starting at $39.50. No code required. Also, take an extra 40% off sale styles.

There will be more as Memorial Day approaches. I’ll keep you updated! I also mention sales sometimes in my Daily Emails that may not get mentioned on the blog. If I see something come through after I post, I’ll add it to my email, so if you aren’t signed up, you might want to do that! I always write a little newsy intro before linking to my post of the day. It’s a little more personal than the blog. If you’re interested, you can subscribe here.

  1. I agree all of this rain we are having is crazy. I live in Dover DE. So everytime you get rain I get rain blah ! Meanwhile in Settle they have our sunny and 75 days. Sorry I m rambling. Love the outfits and the sale round up . Stay dry and have a great weekend

  2. We were def channeling the Instagram Husband video! That was the first thing I thought of when I saw your first picture. Bahahah!!!! I kept meaning to ask you if you’ve seen it because I was going to send it to you if you hadn’t. HA!!

    I love that white vneck you have. That is one thing at the top of my shopping list when my “spending freeze” ends on June 1st. I just noticed that mine is not looking so good in the under arm department–need to update.

    Loved scrolling through these outfits!


    ps. I switched subscription lists. Love the personal touch!

  3. SPLENDID.COM…there you go again, showing us cute new sites for adorable clothes…don’t tell my husband!


  4. Love the round-up! Kicking myself for not snagging the Splendid hoodie in my size and color before. I held out for the sale and now it’s gone. :(. You snooze, you lose, right? Sending you some sunshine from Texas! ☀️☀️

    1. Oh, no, is it gone?? Bummer. I looked around online. I found it in black on Zappos, Bloomies, and Shopbop, but it is full price. 🙁 I don’t see the swan color anywhere but Splendid.com.

  5. I love the white gauze top!! Did you need to wear a camisole under it and what size are you wearing? Looks great on you.

    1. It’s a medium, and I didn’t wear anything under it. It’s thin, but because of the texture, I didn’t feel like it needed a cami. (I avoid wearing camis at all costs.)

  6. I have to tell you that I ordered the wrap in swan yesterday and it arrived today, Sunday! Bear in mind I’m in the UK! I found it on Amazon and as I’m prime it was next day. Still if it came from the US that was phenomenal. I love it by the way. Just tried it on. I’ll IG it later.

    1. Ooooh, they have it on Amazon!?? Good to know! Amazon is amazing. They have distribution centers all over. They deliver to us on Sundays all the time, Which is kind of weird. I don’t need anything THAT urgently. But they have amazing service.
