LTK is having another in-app sale starting today! Just so we are on the same page, here is how it works:

If you open the LTK app, you’ll find each brand’s participating unique promo code within the app. This sale is LTK app-exclusive, so this is a special offering just for the LTK girlies!

Participating Brands: aerie, Abercrombie, Elemis, Pink Lily, Madewell, Boll & Branch, VICI, pura, American Eagle, Tula, Loving Tan, Urban Outfitters + Outdoor Voices

I am thrilled to see my favorite towels and sheets included in this sale. We almost exclusively use these products in our bedrooms and bathrooms. Saying that I love them doesn’t even begin to express my feelings.

I’ve been using (and loving) Elemis ever since I first discovered it in London in my 20’s. My friend got me hooked on the cleansing balm and she’s right, it’s perfection.

Puffer vests are the layering accessory for those of us out West or down South… some extra warmth for cold months but not too much. I have the longsleeved version and I have loved it for years. Both sporty and sleek. A&F on sale is the ideal way to go, also with denim!

Do you typically shop the LTK sales or not necessarily? I’d love to hear. Thank you so much for checking in! xo –

Sharing some game-day-inspired outfits and talking about my strategy for game-day dressing that looks festive and spirited but not over-the-top.

When it comes to putting together a game day outfit (especially if you’re a college graduate), I typically aim for dressing in pieces from my own closet that show school spirit but weren’t necessarily purchased solely for the game. It just makes more sense cost-per-wear to me to invest in pieces I love that I can’t only wear to football games, you know?

Lucky for me, Georgia (where we live) is red and black, meanwhile, Ole Miss (where we went to school) is red and blue/powder blue. All easy colors to incorporate.

Etsy is the spot for themed earrings, handbag straps, headbands, and sweatshirts. So fun!

Red Dress Boutique is full of really cute red and black pieces. I seriously love this sweatshirt and matching sweat shorts, but I truly don’t need it. But SO CUTE. The sweatshirt would also look great with denim, as would this top or this shirt.

I recently got this camisole and matching wrap mini skirt and can’t wait to wear it to a game. In fact… I might wear it to this weekend’s game. Another one that looks great together or separately!

I just got this top from Amazon in the powder blue color and it’s so pretty. Can’t wait to wear it.

Lastly… I’m not a huge sneakers gal but if you’re going to be walking miles and miles… really consider your shoes. I wore comfortable, broken-in sandals two weeks ago and my feet were aching by the end of the day.

Thank you so much for checking in and hope everyone is having a great week! xo –

I’ve rounded up some of the most-loved items from August, and I love seeing what you guys gravitate toward most! Some of these items are steals, others are on sale – let’s get into it.

To shop, click directly on the item or find its associated number below the collage.

This necklace is so beautiful and a great buy if you want that tennis necklace look for less. You can see a photo of it styled below.

I just got this little crossbody bag and it is too cute. Such a great size – photo below.

I recently left these beautiful sunglasses at the pool and was so sure I’d never see them again. However, some honest person turned them into lost & found and I got them back! I hope some good karma comes to that kind and honest person.

I love love love this underwear. I like the french briefs and hipster versions as well. They are my everyday seamless underwear that is one size fits all. It’s magic. I will never understand it.

On that note, I have two of these bras and have loved hearing that you guys are as addicted as I am. So smooth, no wire, mega comfortable. And $31.50! I also really love their plunge version.

I love this workout top. I have it in black and I should also snag the white.

I just got these linen shorts (TTS) and love them. A realistic short for women who don’t want to go short short.

I was influenced to buy this striped half-zip sweater from Amazon, and I’ve already worn it so much. You can see it styled here and here. Truthfully, I do think it’s a little overpriced for the quality… but I still find myself reaching for it over and over again.

The best and softest pajamas. I have four pairs.

I LOVE the classic fit of this denim (TTS). They’re so flattering and look great with a short heel. You can see them on below. They’re currently on sale!

This dress is on clearance and while still a little bit of a splurge, I’m hoping it will carry me into early fall. It’s really beautiful and looks great with flats or heels.

august most loved

I could honestly talk forever about some of these items, but I hope this was informative on why these products were popular last month.

Here’s to September and *hopefully* a taste of cooler temps that will allow us to wear pants. Here’s to hoping! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading – xo –

It was so fun putting together this fall trend report in ’21, that this year I wanted to put together another one to get us excited about what’s ahead. Let’s get into the fall 2023 fashion trends that I’m excited about!

fall 2023 trends

Oversized coats, sweaters, and blazers are everywhere. I love that they offer both comfort and a bold statement. Feels like a win-win to women everywhere, ladies am I right!? Loving this one.

texture street style 2023

Mixing and matching textures has always been a way to level up your look. Trying combining faux fur, leather (or faux leather), wool with softer elements like silk, satin and denim.

menswear 2023 trend

Menswear-inspired looks are everywhere, and as a #blazers4ever kind of gal, I’m loving it. I can’t stop wearing this white vest top (I know it’s a splurge, but it’s honestly perfect), and I ordered these pleated high-waist shorts to wear for the remainder of summer. I know that I can transition both to early fall by mixing and matching!

shearling trend 2023

Shearling-lined jackets, vests and boots. A sherling accent helps to add texture play, and is always a cozy pick. I was hoping to add a shearling piece to my closet this fall and coincidentally I just placed an order for one en route that is part of an influencer friend’s collection launching soon! I’m loving this one too.

2023 peplum

Peplum redefined – I love a peplum moment. I am so excited that this moment is coming back, and I love how it creates an hourglass shape. I like how this year’s version is a little bit longer, looser, and cooler. I love a peplum top with a mini skirt like this outfit, or a peplum top paired with looser denim.

Thank you so much for checking in and reading! xo –

I took a week off of website content last week while we were in Hilton Head, so I wanted to dive back in this week with a back-to-school-themed post filled with the kinds of pieces I wear week in and week out.

To shop, click directly on the item or find its associated number below the collage.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 
9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16

I have gone back and forth about whether or not to buy these for at least three weeks. I originally ordered the pink and orange pair, and they sent me the wrong size. By the time I called them to tell them of their mistake, my size had sold out. So I just had to send them back. These are on preorder… so I guess we’ll see what size I end up with!

I bought these shorts (they run true to size), and I love them. They are so comfortable and look great with both heels and flats.

My friend has this shirt and I love it on her so much. It is so chic, and I ended up buying it in both white and navy.

I got this shirt on final sale (true to size), and I really like the fit! It’s stretchy and both loose and fitted in all the right places. I don’t think it’s worth the full price but I definitely think it’s worth the sale price!

I am so tempted to buy this oversized shirt dress from Amazon. I saw it on someone on tik tok and it looked SO cute.

A bodysuit or tee and 100% cotton denim is a daytime go-to for me. It’s always been classic, and it will always be clean.

Nearly all of these pieces I would wear to school drop off, to run errands, work from home or have a work lunch. Happy back-to-school everyone! Thanks so much for checking in and reading – xo –

amazon best buys 2023

In thinking of this week’s wish list coverage, I wanted to pivot to best buys. I always love reading people’s best purchases – across the map. I want to see a mix of all the random things that make your life better and/or easier!

So below you’ll find my best buys from Amazon of 2o23… for at least the first half of the year. More info is below the collage!

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 9 | 10 
11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20

When it comes to workout clothes, Amazon really has it going on. Some of my most worn workout tops are this one, this one and this one (love the contrast piping).

Another area that I go to Amazon a lot for these days is trendy sunglasses like this pair and this pair. When you have a baby that likes to take your sunglasses off, put them on their own face, throw them in the pool, etc… it is much less stressful to know your shades cost $10.

When I realized I was going to have a step stool in our powder room for probably the next five years, I bought a nicer-looking once that is also translucent so it doesn’t make the already small powder room feel smaller. No regrets!

These tassels look so expensive and they’re $9. I don’t know how, but I have them in our living room and dining room and they add so much to cabinet knobs or lamps.

The two sweaters I REALLY love from Amazon that I discovered this year are this cardigan (I have in 3 colors) and this striped half zip. Both look great on or draped over your shoulders for that classicly chic clean girl aesthetic.

These are the only Spode Blue Italian plates that I have, but I’ve been so tempted to expand the collection because I love them so much. They really make any meal look just a little bit prettier.

Do you have any buys this year that you really, really love? I’d love to hear. Thank you so much for checking in and reading! xo –

easy happy hacks

A while ago I shared some simple hacks I incorporate to make life a hint sweeter. You guys then shared so many of your own amazing happy hacks, and it was so fun to get even more ideas for things to bring moments of joy throughout our day, even if small.

Today we’re diving into a third round of your submitted hacks. They’re so good!

Walk around the block before and after work.

10-15 minute walk outside after the kids are asleep.

Friday family movie nights with popcorn.

“Don’t delay joy.” Watch the show! Take the bath! Eat the treat!

Taking 10 minutes in the AM with coffee/tea to sit outside and watch and listen to the birds.

When I order something online, I always include a little gift note to myself like, “you deserve this!”

Putting a dab of Vaseline on wrists and neck before spraying perfume so it lasts longer.

Get a mirror ball and put it next to your window. You get room sparkles every time the sun hits it!

I do this in my office with a mirrored disco ball! – KB

Sleeping in the guest room when you don’t want a roommate, aka your spouse.

Take a quick shower before a bubble bath, and put a hair mask in. Extra luxurious!

This is my favorite bubble bath for luxe nights. – KB

Popping into a thrift store whenever I have a moment. I love a great find!

I did this last week and it really is the best. – KB

Making fruit-flavored ice cubes for a delicious afternoon-infused water.

Make a double batch of brownies or cookies and freeze half. Best treat to pull out one by one!

I did this with oatmeal chocolate chip cookies last weekend! -KB

Read a book set in the location of an upcoming vacation.

Timers on all of my lamps so they automatically come on at night.

Google  “change your life chicken.” One sheet pan, no dirty dishes, best chicken ever!

Pack a spindrift for the drive home from work. Treat it like a mocktail.

Special perfume on Friday before work… going into the weekend perfume!

I keep a perfume roller in my purse for touch-ups throughout the day.

Change up your work spot. Sit outside for a power hour of tasks or calls.

Aromatherapy shower steamers!

Thank you to everyone who submitted your happy hacks. I can’t tell you how much I love reading these and incorporating as many as I can. They are so good! Have a beautiful week – xo –

myrtle topiary

– using some birthday coins from my parents to buy these adorable topiaries

pink leather laptop case

— using this beautiful Bell’INVITO laptop case for the first time –

lettuce grow farmstand

– getting excited to start growing some vegetables –

two step step stool

– getting our new Audwell step stool

gold picture light

– rearranging some art in the house… for fun (picture light) –

1)  I looked around locally for some indoor tabletop topiaries and couldn’t find any. Believe it or not, when I can find a particular plant variety, I go to Etsy. I used some birthday money to buy two of these small topiaries and one large one. I am LOVING them.

2)  It’s been so interesting watching these plants grow in our outdoor Lettuce Grow. I’m trying to let it work on filling out before clipping much from it… but I think this might be the week I start using the chives and arugula.

3)  I recently found this gal on YouTube and loved watching her use her design expertise while thrifting. Hearing about the sections of stores she goes to is really fascinating, and it inspired me to pop into Habitat ReStore and Goodwill. I found a basket, marble pedestal bowl, tervis tumbler and bathroom trash can for a total of $11. Honestly, it was a thrill.

4)  Two weekends ago I had a few hours of time to kill and ended up rearranging some of the artwork in our house. I wanted all of our paintings to be on the main level where we spend the most time, and I am so glad I did. When you first move into a space and start hanging/storing your things, sometimes it’s not necessarily the best placement once you learn the rhythms of your space.

Every now and then when I rearrange pieces, I’m really reminded of that.

5)  I am going to be so blue when And Just Like That is over. Episode 9 of 11 aired this week and I look forward to it SO much. The first season had a lot of grief and melancholy, while this season is a return to cheerful Carrie and feels like such a companion to SATC. I have been a fan of this series for as long as I can remember, so it’s been such a treat to see new stories for this cast of characters we feel we know as our own friends.

If you’re a SATC or AJLT fan, I can’t recommend The Writer’s Room podcast enough. I might even enjoy it more than the show. It’s the writers that have made this brand so enticing, and hearing all their commentary is so entertaining.

Thank you so much for checking in and reading! Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend – xo –

girl dinner trend

I have been seeing everyone reference their “girl dinner,” and this is a trend I can absolutely get on board with. I LIVE for a girl dinner. A meal you piece together that requires little to no cooking or cleaning and is therefore easy and efficient.

Girl Dinner = a meal consisting of snacks, side dishes and small portions of randomly assembled food.

New York Times article here.

The Skimm’s video definition here. “It’s about taking pleasure in your food, especially when you didn’t spend much time preparing it.”

When Christian has a work or guys dinner and I can eat dinner solo, it’s always going to be a combination of snacks while standing in the kitchen. Or I snack as I cook for our kids and then skip sitting down for an actual meal. That’s just what it’s gonna be.

On nights we return from traveling, I usually prepare the kids a more balanced meal. Then Christian and I will feed ourselves separately on our own. This happened recently but because of this new trend of labeling this habit, it inspired me to ask Christian if once a week we could just do solo dinners. It basically just feels nice to skip cooking and cleaning for a night. It’s a night off.

I LOVE a hodge-podge assortment of things. Last night I had cheese and crackers, cucumber with Everything But the Bagel seasoning, and a piece of coffee cake. It was excellent.

I’d love to hear what your recent girl dinner was. A few examples in this article. Let us know in the comments! Thanks so much for stopping by – xo –

As the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wraps up, I wanted to share what I think is the best of what is still available for purchase. Each year, pieces sell out or things get past you that you didn’t realize wouldn’t have as large of inventory.

Even this year, as a cardholder, things I thought I might purchase were sold out before I even had the opportunity to shop! However, there are still some really great items that will continue to be marked down until the sale ends this Sunday, 8/6.

To shop, click directly on the item or find its associated number below the collage.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

This underwear remains among my top sellers for several years in a row. I love the different cuts from the same brand. They are one size fits all and somehow… it works. Amazing!

Hanky pankies marked down – to know them is to love them. I have over 20 pairs!

I have this gigantic pump lotion and use it almost daily. I also use it on my kids!

I have these boots in a different color and they’re so pretty. I love the western touch.

I would have bought this cashmere cardigan (and this one) if I didn’t have way too many sweaters. But ugh… I love.

If I didn’t have a leather jacket already, I would absolutely use this annual sale as an opportunity to get one. This one is marked down $170!

I have two of these tennis skirts and they’re so cute. Spanx just always gets it right.

Thanks so much for reading and have a beautiful weekend! Looking forward to some non-sale content next week – xo –

summer veggie sandwich

I shared a video making this sandwich a while back, but I wanted to put it here because it’s really that good.

Originally inspired by this tik tok video, I will make vegetable sandwiches with just raw veggies, two lightly toasted pieces of bread, mayo, and some spices. That’s it. And it’s so good.


two slices of bread (lightly toasted)

sliced onion

sliced tomatoes

sliced cucumber

sliced bell pepper

Lawry’s seasoning salt

dried dill weed


Spread mayo on one (or both) sides of the bread. Layer your cucumber, onion, and tomato. Then generously sprinkle dried dill weed and Lawry’s seasoning salt. Then add your bell pepper and add seasonings again.

PS – I made this the other day and forgot the dill. It was missed. Don’t skip on the dill! Dried or fresh works great.

If you try this, let me know what you think. It has over 150k plays on Instagram and almost 3k saved the recipe. I’m telling you – try it!

Thanks so much for reading and find more food & drink recipes here. xo –

As we close out July, I want to close out the month sharing July’s top sellers. The majority are #NSale pieces (but not all!), which means they are still on sale through 8/6.

To shop, click directly on the item or find its associated number below the collage.

I love to see that you guys are loving these pajamas as much as I am. I have the long-sleeved in 2 colors, short-sleeved and I just ordered a long-sleeved/short combo in zebra. I can’t stop. The fit pre, during and post-pregnancy. The best.

I shared a reel wearing this sweater here. The denim is also over $30 off and I’ve had them for years. Love ’em.

I recently used this fabric shaver to clean up some cashmere lumbar pillows I have in the family room. Now they look brand new. I use this device on home items more than anything else!

I’ve had this cashmere scarf in grey for over 7 years and it’s one of the best buys in the sale every year in my opinion. I also stock up on my favorite seamless panties every year. They’re one size fits all and I have NO IDEA how. Magic!?

Silk hair ties. You can never have enough. They’re also a great gift!

Thanks so much for reading and I hope everyone has a great week. Appreciate you! xo –
