I hope you had a lovely weekend (and Monday!). Eric and I lounged around and caught up on sleep, errands, and took some time to enjoy the beautiful weather we received after quite a week of rain. E bought a grill for his birthday, so we’ve been eating lots of burgers and bbq. A friend even grilled up some bacon wrapped scallops the other night and ohmygosh so tasty… I can barely describe the taste bud ecstasy. Other than to use the word ecstasy. Yep, that should do it.
Eric is in Chicago for the week and I’m gearing up for day one of summer session tomorrow. I’m pretty pumped because I have missed my toddlers. I love them so much! One of my student’s moms came waltzing into school a few weeks ago, cute as ever, in the fabulous denim dress. I heart denim. BIG heart denim, as any Autumn Girl would. It’s timeless and so fitting, especially in Texas. I asked her where she bought it and she told me it was on sale at Madewell. I’ve never bought anything from Madewell, though I’ve been there many times. I would nearly call it my favorite store because I’m in love with everything they sell. They have the cutest shoes, boots, tops, FLANNELS, and denim, but I’ve always thought the store was a tad expensive. So when I heard sale, I made plans on a Friday night (yes, Friday night instead of spending $ on food & drinks… yes, strategically planned) to check out Madewell.
Not only was the dress on sale, but all sale items were an additional 30% off at checkout. OH- and because I’m a teacher, I received ANOTHER 20% off. You guys, Madewell is my JAM! (Bring an ID or form of proof of job in nursing or teaching profession to receive this discount). This dress is so comfy and cozy and is such a simple statement piece to throw on with flats or boots. Its my new go-to for a casual date night or day of errands.
I mentioned in my happiness list last week that I treated myself to these amazing open toe booties. Toms?! Who knew?! I am normally a size 8.5 or 9 but had to order a size 8 to fit better. And they are so comfortable and cute, I can’t stand it!
This dress is still on sale y’all! And going to sell out fast! So quick, get on it! Happy Shopping :)
***I will note that this dress runs large so I’m wearing an XX-Small. Nope, I’m not normally that size but it still made me feel pretty fab :)
