Good morning from soggy Pennsylvania! We’re getting some rain from what’s left of Harvey, but thankfully it’s nothing serious. We’re hoping it’s going to taper off before our Labor Day cookout tonight. I’m still thinking of you guys in Texas. If you’re down that way, check in and let us know how you’re doing.
I usually do a newsy life update on Sundays and keep the shop-talk to a minimum, but yesterday I put together a list of Labor Day weekend sales I want to share with you because it’s a good time to pick up summer pieces for next year at a deep discount, and you can find some good deals on fall styles as well.
I also added some Shop pages to my menu bar that I’m hoping you’ll find helpful. I’ve had my general Shop page for a while, and I try to keep it current with seasonal styles that I recommend so I just updated that for fall. And I also started one dedicated to Nordstrom and another one for Loft since those seem to be the two most popular retailers on my site. You can access them at any time through the Shop tab on my menu bar.
So first I’m going to list a roundup of sales, and then I have an exciting announcement from Adore Your Wardrobe!

Adore Your Wardrobe Registration Opens TODAY!
That’s right, registration for Adore Your Wardrobe is open once again!
September registration begins on 9/3 (that’s today!) and ends on 9/12. Classes start on 9/13.
If you’ve been waffling on whether or not to take this course, this is a GREAT time to do it. The kids are back in school, you (theoretically) have a little extra time on your hands to focus on YOU, and you will be DONE with the class before the holidays… perfect for timing to look amazing at the next family gathering!
Here are a couple of things that you should know.
First, this is the last registration period for 2018. Yep, this is the last time Adore Your Wardrobe will open up registration in 2017 so if you don’t do it now, you won’t have another chance until after the holidays.
This is also the last time the course price will be $149.00. Prices will go up in 2018 when they launch the new (and improved) website, so definitely take advantage of this pricing while you still can.
I’m sure some of you are sitting there thinking, What the heck is Adore Your Wardrobe?
Fair question. Adore Your Wardrobe is the brainchild of Kelly Snyder, my friend and fellow blogger over at Redefined Mom. It’s a 30-day video eCourse that teaches the science and math, formulas and rules behind creating an amazing looking silhouette on your individual body. It will transform the way you think about clothes and how you put outfits together. It definitely did for me!
Some people think that because I have a fashion blog, it all comes naturally to me. Ha! Nothing could be further from the truth. The reason I put so much detail into my posts and explaining how I put my outfits together is because I am figuring it out as I go and over-thinking it every step of the way. Yes, I’ve gotten better at it over the years, but only through much trial and error. Taking Kelly’s course two years ago was a huge breakthrough for me.
I did not even KNOW my own body type. All my life I thought I was an apple because I tend to carry any extra weight in my middle, but I am actually more of an hourglass — the opposite of what I thought I was! Kelly’s course taught me that in the very first lesson, and from there on out, everything in the course was geared towards learning to dress my individual body type.
Don’t believe me? Look back at my outfits pictures from 3 and 4 years ago… YIKES!!!
I’ve always loved fashion and loved to shop, but learning how to best dress my unique body has made such a huge difference in how I get dressed every day and how I put outfits together for the blog, and I have Adore Your Wardrobe to thank for that. That’s not to say that I always do it perfectly, but I have come a long way!
With Adore Your Wardrobe, not only do you get access to the video series, but if you choose the Designer Level, you also get personalized attention from Kelly and her team through a private Facebook Group. That makes all the difference, and I highly recommend taking advantage of that. Sometimes it’s intimidating and there’s some tough love that has to be dished out at times, but it’s so worth it.
If you want to see one of the classes to get an idea how they work and what Kelly’s teaching style is like, you can view Lesson #6: Rule of Four by clicking on THIS LINK and then click GET FREE EPISODE INSTANTLY under the video.
I’m happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments, and a lot of people here have taken the course already so I’m sure they will chime in as well.
I hope you all have a restful and blessed Sunday!
