Happy Friday, loves!! I am loving this weekend because there are so many amazing sales happening!! And right now, my FAVORITE dress of the summer is currently on sale and still available in a few sizes!! Use the code SUMMER on the J.crew website to get an extra 40 percent off of this showstopper of a dress.

We’re all wearing face masks when we go out now so why not get a really cute one? I love all things pastel so of course I am loving the new Stoney Clover pastel masks with these fun beads! Stoney Clover is also making clear cases for masks which are definitely an upgrade from the ziplock bags I’ve been carrying my masks around in!

I was browsing online the other night and I think I’ve created my dream summer outfit! Paring this white linen crop top and pants with simple tan sandals and rainbow accessories is the perfect look for a night out this summer for pretty much any activity. The rainbow pompom straw bag is currently on sale for just $51! If you want to dress it up a bit, you could swap out the wrap sandals for the Loeffler Randall Penny Knot Mules.

Times have been tough and I’ve noticed people are giving more gifts than usual to cheer friends and loved ones up. If you’re looking to do something like that and needing some inspiration, these are a few of my favorite gifts lately. I just randomly found the Bliss Jelly Glow Peel the other day at Target and I don’t normally experiment with drugstore skin care, but I caved in…I just love all things pink… and I’m so glad I gave this a shot! At $10, this peel has not irritated my face, but rather has truly made it glow! It is so easy to use too. You just rub it on in a circular motion after you wash your face and it takes away all of your dead skin–it is fabulous and I’m sure you and your friends will love it! Candles are also a great gift option, who doesn’t love candles?! The Fornasetti Candles are a little pricey, but smell great and really make a statement. I also just LOVE these lemon cocktail napkins…get a set of these, a nice bottle of vodka and a sparkling French lemonade and you’ve got yourself a beautiful and summery hostess gift!

I hope you loved my picks this week and I hope everyone has a SAFE and HEALTHY weekend!

Black Friday in July Sale at Macy’s

Black Friday in July Sale at Macy’s

Macy’s is having a Black Friday in July sale that will last through Monday and it is not one you want to miss! They are taking up to 70 percent off of fine jewelry, clothing and home goods!

I feel like Macy’s gets a bad rap because they aren’t the flashiest, but what I love about them is that they offer many of the same brands as Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman’s and Nordstrom, but because of their massive sales, you can get a better price on the exact same items. Some of my favorite clothing brands they carry are Weekend Max Mara, Lauren Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein. They also sell home goods and things like that so it is a one-stop shop.

For their Black Friday in July Sale, Macy’s is offering major discounts on different items each day so if you see something on sale today, make sure you buy it because it might not be on the deal tomorrow. During sales like this, I love to stock up on household items like hand towels or new dishes that maybe you’ve been putting off getting for a while.

I hope you love all of my picks! Let me know what you are loving from the Macy’s sale!

Happy Friday, loves!! I am so excited about this long weekend and finally having a chance to hangout and relax with my husband and friends.

I have been living in this Ro’s Garden cover up this summer. I ordered it in a size small and love the loose fit…it is perfect to wear for a long day on the beach or the boat. It is one of those dresses that you can easily throw on to run in to grab lunch or comfortably wear on the beach all day because of its light-weight and breezy fabric. I also love the red and pink flowers on it– you could even wear it for the Fourth of July tomorrow with a blue swimsuit. I wore it here with my favorite tan slides, but how cute would it be with the Melissa heart pool sandals?! And of course no summer outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses and my current favorites are these Gucci lookalike sunnies from Amazon…I swear you cannot tell the difference from the real ones, but they are only $12.99!! These do sell out quickly so be sure to grab yours soon!

1. Gucci Lookalike sunnies 2. Ganni Polka Dot Midi Dress 3. Hermes Face Mask 4. Staud Maxi Dress 5. Juicytube–Spring Fling 6. Spiritual Gangster Tee 7. Prada Slides 8. Ro’s Garden Caroline Cover up 9. Alo Biker Shorts 10. Slip Sleep Mist 11. J.Crew Cotton Pajamas 12. Melissa Heart Pool Sandals

Face masks have become this summer’s hottest accessory and how chic are these Hermes masks?! In addition to being uber-stylish in these masks, the proceeds from the masks are donated towards the purchase of diabetic alert service dogs for children and teens. If you’re looking for a little glam under your face mask, my favorite lip gloss from middle school is back! Lancome’s Juicy Tubes are back!! My favorite shade is SringFling…it’s the perfect dewey pink gloss!

Saks Fifth Avenue has some of the cutest new dresses in for summer and I am drooling over them!! The white Staud maxi dress with multi-colored lining is such a perfect dress, whether you’re staying at home or going to brunch with your friends. I am also in love with this new Ganni polka dot dress. Both dresses would pair perfectly with Prada’s Raffia slide sandals.

Ever since I’ve started going back to the gym after quarantine, I’ve changed my workout style. I have been loving oversized Spiritual Gangster tee shirts (the SOFTEST!! material) and pairing them with biker shorts which I never thought I’d say!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few nights. The J.crew cotton pajamas are my absolute favorite–they are breathable and light, but offer coverage, which is perfect for summer in Texas. They are also 50 percent off right now with the code GOFOURTH. I’m hoping new pajamas and the chamomile sleep mist from Slip will help me get back into a regular sleep schedule soon.

I hope you all have a safe and healthy Fourth of July and enjoy all of my picks this week!

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Brit’s Picks: Fourth of July 🌟

Happy Friday, y’all!! Can you believe we are just a week away from Fourth of July celebrations?! Today I’m sharing my favorite patriotic finds to complete your party preparations! From your attire to decor, I’ve got you covered!

Are you still searching for the perfect Fourth of July decor for your party?! Target and Amazon have the cutest patriotic decorations at affordable prices and you will be able to get them in time for your celebration! I’m a big fan of stars so of course I love banners and garland made with red, white and blue stars. I also think these Meri Meri confetti rockets are a fabulous party favor for your friends and family.

As far as my Fourth of July outfit, I will be wearing my new Daily Sleeper Atlanta dress! I ordered mine in a size small and in the “Azure Blue” color. I love the color of this dress and how feminine and comfortable it is. As much as I do love this dress, it did take two months to be delivered so I wouldn’t recommend planning on wearing it immediately, but I will say, it is totally worth the wait.

For other festive looks, I would pair the USA crop top or the beautiful Mi Golondrina top with a pair of white L’Agence Margot high-rise jeans. This is my all-time favorite pair of jeans…I have them in white and a classic blue and get so many compliments whenever I wear them.

I also love the white LoveShackFancyxTarget dress for a festive option….you can pair it with some turquoise earrings and maybe a red bow in your hair and you with have the perfect outfit. I ordered this dress online in a size 2 and it fits perfectly. It looks almost exactly like the LoveShackFancy Edie dress, but much more affordable. It’s still in stock in a few sizes at Target, you don’t want to miss this one! I shared this navy blue polka dot dress from Tory Burch last week and I had to share it again because it is just too cute and it is now under $200. This is a quintessential Fourth of July dress and would be so cute with a red headband or jewelry to show your American pride.

If you’re hitting the beach, pool or the lake, I would suggest this gorgeous high-waisted red bikini from Mara Hoffman. I have a few bikinis from Mara Hoffman and I normally wear a small in the top and medium in the bottoms. These swimsuits are definitely an investment, but they fit perfectly and are made so well… you can keep them for years!

No outfit is complete without a great pair of shoes and for this Fourth of July, I will be wearing the Zara bow slides. They just got marked down to $35 and are a perfect neutral for summer. If you’re looking to splurge this holiday weekend, look no further than these chambray Chanel beauties or these chic Gucci slides. They are the perfect compliment to any patriotic look you have planned!

Whether you’re barbecuing with family, going out on the boat or the beach for the fourth, you will definitely need a festive face mask and of course, Evian face mist to beat the heat!

What are your plans for the Fourth? Leave me a comment and let me know! Hope you are all staying safe, happy and healthy this weekend!

What a week it has been, friends! It is always kind of crazy coming back from vacation, but it feels like this week has just blown by! Although this week has been fast, it has also been filled with some amazing sales…from Tory Burch’s Semi-Annual Sale to Net-A-Porter’s major sale, we are in store for some great deals as we head into summer and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on the blog today.

For my picks this week I have to start right off with these pearl sunglasses. I ordered them in April and I just got them in the mail on Monday…I have not stopped wearing them and everywhere I go, I get SO many compliments!! From the dry cleaners to lunch with my girlfriends, everyone loves these sunglasses and are blown away when I tell them I got them from Amazon for $13.99!!

1. Pearl Sunglasses 2. Tory Burch Polka Dot Dress 3. Tory Burch Fish Earrings 4. Sisley Black Rose Cream 5. Zimmerman Dress 6. Ulla Johnson Maxi Dress 7. Ulla Johnson Ruffle Top 8. Pink Free People Dress 9. Lisa Marie Fernandez Bikini
10. TKEES Lace Up Sandals 11. Ganni Midi Skirt  12. Corkcicle Canteen

I am also so excited about the Tory Burch sale this week. Tory Burch clothing is some of my favorite–it is so well made, effortlessly chic and flattering. I do think her prices are a bit steep, but as soon as her clothes go on sale, I snatch them up! I am in love with the navy blue and white polka dot dress and these fish earrings are to die for! A couple of years ago, I bought a similar set of earrings from her, but they are gold dragonflies and I’m hoping I will love these fish just as much. They are such a steal at $75!

Pictured here on New Years Eve 2018 wearing the Dragonfly Tory Burch earrings.

Net-a-Porter is also offering 50 percent off of hundreds of styles this week and some of my favorite designers are included in the sale! I live for Zimmerman and Ulla Johnson, but they are also brands I prefer to buy on sale. I am loving this peach Zimmerman dress with floral detailing, the cream puff-sleeve blouse from Ulla Johnson and this blue and white maxi dress from Ulla Johnson as well! They are all half-off right now so its a great time to buy and you have all summer to wear these beautiful pieces.

Aside from the sales, I have been crushing on this hot pink Free People Dress for a few Weeks and I think I just need to buy it! I am also loving the Tkees lace up sandals…I have a similar pair from Splendid that I bought a few years ago, but am in need of an update. If you are a Corkcicle fan, this confetti canteen is on sale at Nordstrom right now and is perfect for keeping your beverages cool in the summer heat. And last but not least, I have been using a sample of the Sisley Black Rose cream that I got a while ago for the past two weeks and I have seen a real difference in the firmness of my skin, it is a little pricey, but if you’re looking for a fabulous night cream like I have been, I would highly recommend this one!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday, loves! This week I am at the beach and am sharing a few of my favorite items that I have been loving on our trip! We are in Watercolor, Florida and there are so many beautiful shades of green and blue here and that color palette has inspired most of my looks this week.

1. Straw Hat 2. Tie-dye headband 3. Rosé Earrings 4. Straw Bucket Bag 5. White Kaftan 6. SeaSalt Hairspray 7. Mint Green Workout Set 8. Scalloped Bed Sheets 9. Veuve Rosé Recycled Candle 10. Mi Golondrina Top 11. Peacock Float 12. Tan Jelly Sandals

I have been wearing this Eugenia Kim Mirabel Hat every day on our trip and I am SO in love with it. I have wanted one of these hats for years, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay the full-price. Luckily, I was online the other day and got an alert that this beautiful hat with a mint ribbon was on sale so I jumped on it! I do love a good deal so while I was checking out, I googled “Eugenia Kim coupons” and a 20 percent off coupon popped up that actually worked so I got an additional 20 percent off of the already discounted price. I recommend doing this when you are shopping online because so many stores have extra coupons available and you can save yourself a lot of money.

I paired the hat with the Uber-popular Lyocell Caftan from H&M. I got this caftan on sale a couple of weeks ago for $17.99 and I am just blown away with how elegant and high-quality it is. I have also been wearing the Pamela Munson straw bucket bag non-stop and have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect summer bag and it actually holds quite a few items.

Having fun at the pool with the peacock float and the J.crew tie-dye headband!

If you are looking for a fun and affordable pool float for the summer, look no further than this incredible peacock! We brought it to the beach and have had so much fun with it. It did take a while to blow up and I would highly recommend using a pump, but it is do-able to blow it up by yourself.

What are you loving for the beach this summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!

June Amazon Favorites

June Amazon Favorites

Can you all believe it is already June?! This year has flown by and seemed like it was moving at a snails-pace all at the same time. But either way, I am ready for some fun in the sun and am sharing my favorite things on Amazon with you right now.

1. Annika Dress 2. Crop Top USA Sweatshirt 3. Flower Earrings 4. Wrap Skirt Cover Up 5. Daisy Round Sunglasses 6. High Waisted Scalloped Bikini 7. Jonathan Adler Pillow 8. Lilly Pulitzer Wine Tumbler 9. Parrot Earrings 10. Link Bracelet 11. Color Block Pleated Midi Dress 12. Balloon Monkey Money Bank 13. Wicker Picnic Basket Set for 4 14. Chunky Gold Chain Necklace

I recently got this blue swimsuit because it reminded of a modest version of the coveted Marysia swimsuits with the scalloped-detailing but at a MUCH lower price-point. While I do love the color of this swimsuit and the price ($23!!), I don’t love the fit. To be honest, the bottoms look kind of like a diaper, but I like it with this tie-dye cover-up that I got for $17 and it will be staying on all day! In the end, I do think you get what you pay for when it comes to swimsuits.

I’m sure you’ve seen the daisy sunglasses all over instagram lately and they are worth the hype…they are precious and surprisingly flattering on most face types. I LOVE this USA cropped sweatshirt for summer. It was only $17, but did take a while to get delivered. If you are thinking of wearing it for the Fourth of July, I would order it ASAP! I ordered a Large because I didn’t it want to be too short.

My friend, Erica, is the sweetest and got me this Lilly Pullitzer tumbler last summer and I use it all the time! It keeps my wine or cocktail chilled and it is just too cute! She also got me the parrot earrings for my birthday and I LOVE them!! I will be wearing them this week while we are at the beach with an all white outfit.

I found this precious picnic basket the other day and I realized I needed it. Growing up, my grandma would take me on picnics and she actually got me my own picnic basket, but it is up in Montana so this basket with stay with me at my house and I can go on picnics with my husband or girlfriends all the time!

What are you loving on Amazon lately? Leave me a comment and let me know!

I think quarantine-time has finally gotten to me! I actually thought yesterday was Friday, but I’m back on track today and sharing my favorite items with you.

My favorite Zara dress this season is still available and I have been wearing it non-stop. I love this dress because it is light-weight which is essential for a Texas summer, it’s feminine and machine-washable so it is super low-maintenance. On the Zara website, it is not shown with a belt, but I’ve worn it with a couple of my own belts and I really think it makes the dress more flattering. I’ve styled it here with the Loeffler Randall Penny Knot Mules in rose gold. These shoes are worth the hype and they are currently on sale at Shopbop.

1. Staud Handbag 2. Zara Midi Dress 3. Haight Swimsuit 4. Roller Rabbit Robe 5. Cinq a Sept Top 6. Valentino look-alike sandals 7. LoveShackFancy Swimsuit 8. L’AgenceDenim 9. Honig Sauvignon Blanc 10. Loeffler Randall Bow Mules 11. Homesick Candle

I’m also loving this one-pice swimsuit from Haight–it is incredible. I have it in black and will be getting the white too. Because I’m 5’8″ I ordered the medium and it fits perfectly. This Roberta Roller Rabbit robe is perfect for summer and I’m loving the color.

During the summer, most of the clothes I wear are in light colors because of how hot it gets here. I’m loving this monochromatic look with the bow-sleeved Cinq a Sept top, which is currently on a major sale at Saks, paired with the L’Agence Marguerite High-Rise Skinny jeans. I bought a pair of these jeans a few years ago and they are one of my all-time favorite jeans. They are pricey, but totally worth the investment. Speaking of Saks, this adorable LoveShackFancy swimsuit is also on sale right now and is too cute for hitting the pool or beach this summer.

If you are looking for a new white wine, look no further than this Honig Sauvignon Blanc. At $15 a bottle, this wine is crisp, light, refreshing and honestly a great value for money. I have been drinking it for the past month and really enjoying it.

What are your favorites this week? I hope you all have a safe and happy weekend!

Brit’s Father’s Day Gift Picks

Brit’s Father’s Day Gift Picks

Father’s Day is just around the corner, friends! I don’t know about you, but I am a daddy’s girl through and through. Not only do I look like my dad, but he is also my best friend. Although one day of the year is not nearly enough to celebrate my dad, I do like using this holiday to show him some love.

My parents do not really like getting gifts, I honestly think they would prefer to never get gifts and just give to others, but I insist on getting them something. In the past couple of years I have really honed in on how to buy gifts for my mom and dad and people who “don’t like getting gifts.” The trick is to watch what they buy for themselves and then get them that, with a slight elevation. For example, my dad loves golfing and golfers go through a lot of golf balls. So I bought him a set of Pro V1 golf balls and had them customized to say “Lar Bear” on the balls. This little addition does not cost much more than the golf balls would if you bought them in the store, but the sentiment goes a long way.

All of that being said, I’ve come up with a list of gifts that I think my dad and many more will love for Father’s Day this year, but I know for sure that my dad will most enjoy the card I write him. So don’t forget to add a beautiful note to your dad to remind them how much you love them!I hope you enjoy this gift guide and that you have a wonderful Father’s Day!

XO,

Brit
