Splurge vs. Steal: Cover Ups

Jun 13, 2016

1  |  2  |  3  |  4  |   5

Cover ups are a must for summer and spending time at the pool or beach. I mean, I don't want to get my normal clothes wet and usually they are too heavy when water gets on them. So that is where a good cover up comes in! They are also a must for travel! A cute cover up can make you feel great on your way to the water! These are some of my favorite splurges and steals in the cover up category. All the steals are less than $40 (YES! $40 or less) and the splurges are $40+.

I am loving rompers and anything with tassels this season so I am super excited to snag a couple of these since I only have one cover up from years ago. I just recently bought #5 on the steals list in white and it is pretty great. It is a little small on me but I am not a twig so that is understandable. It is very lightweight and cute though. I am seriously crushing on #1 and #4 from the steals and pretty much all the splurges.

Nordstrom's Anniversary sale is coming up so keep an eye on these cover ups! They just might get cheaper and dip into the steal category! I know I will be watching- don't miss out!

Which cover up are you crushing on? Do you splurge or steal usually?

Boho Summer

Jun 7, 2016




Top | Target    Shorts | Old Navy   Sandals | BCBGeneration/TJMaxx (similar)
Necklace & Earrings | Old

I used to not be into anything that was boho at all but for some reason this summer I am loving it! I have found some amazing new pieces at Target and this shirt is one of them! Do you guys use the Cartwheel app for Target? I went on a day that they had an extra 20% off all women's clothing clearance and I scored this shirt for $8! Yes $8!! 

These shorts are from Old Navy which is like my most favorite clothing store and place for shorts. They fit well and are always inexpensive which is great! I picked these shoes up at TJMaxx with a gift card I was given for my college graduation. They are so cute and I find myself wearing them all the time!

What are some of your favorite boho looks for summer?

Hey y'all!

I had so many favorite things this week! Memorial weekend was such a blast as it was my mom's birthday too so we had double the fun!

The weekend started off right with my nails getting done. Guys, my nail artist is amazing- like she did this design and hand painted it all!


I was dog sitting for Nathan's family this weekend as they went to visit family in Southern Missouri. We had their dogs Ike and Ollie and Ollie and Moose became the best of friends. We even went to the dog park on Saturday and let them play and make some more friends.









Mom and I went to Perkins for dinner on Saturday after taking the dogs back home. I love breakfast food so much- it is my favorite type of food!



Sunday was my mom's birthday and after a wonderful morning at church Molley, my SIL, my mom and I went to brunch at the Big Biscuit. They are known for their biscuits and gravy and they deliver I tell you! This is the Country Benedict- biscuits with sausage and scrambled eggs smothered in gravy! So so so good!


We ran a few errands and then we went to mini golf in Parkville. Their course is so cute and it's on the side of a big hill so it has many different levels to it. We haven't been mini-golfing as a family in I don't even know when so it was wonderful to play together. John and Molley are the most competitive in our family so it was fun to watch them try to beat each other. 




Hole in one's!





We ended the night with Papa John's pizza and cake and ice cream after playing a couple rounds of cornhole and meeting some new neighbors. 


The rest of the week consisted of studying, blogging, praise team practice, dinner at Ihop with Nathan, and lots of badminton with my mom!

What were some of your favorite things from this week?
