Scenes From Our Weekend

Happy Halloween!!  Sterling and Frances woke up so excited about today and I am excited because it means I can pack up all the Halloween decorations:) 
Truth be told our weekend was pretty low key.  I didn't snap a ton of pics but here is what I captured. 

Thursday after school the kids headed to a fun Halloween decorating party at Camp Perri.  They always love anything at Camp Perri she is great with kids!  
While they decorated I walked next door with my friend Ashley to Crushed.  The owner let us sample a few wines, they have a such a great selection.

New favorite earrings from Empire State Finery.

Sterling had his school Halloween party on Friday.  I volunteered to bring fruit and thanks to Pinterest I found this adorable idea for skewers.  A few of you asked how I did the faces and I used icing.  The recipe called for a food coloring marker but I couldn't find one.  The small tube of gel icing was easy to use though.  Rodney was hoping he got one, but no dice.  

My wingback chairs that I had recovered were ready on Friday so I picked them up.  I love the neutral fabric my mom and I picked out.  

Friday night we hung out with my parents.  I always love their view for happy hour.

Saturday morning my mom did a little home shopping at GDC.  I am still searching for fabric for pillows on my wing back chairs.  It takes me forever to make a decision.  

This tunic is perfect with leggings.  I am always looking for longer tees and I love this one and it is only $32.  It also comes in black and hunter green.  I am wearing the US 6.
What I wore:
Matt took Sterling to get a haircut and they did the cutest faux hawk.

We had a birthday party that afternoon for one of Sterling's friends and then ordered pizza.
This scalloped tee is so cute and only $25, also comes in black.  I am wearing size US 6. 

Sunday I worked around the house then we took the kids to the Yacht Club.  It had been closed down the past few weeks because of damage from hurricane Matthew but finally reopened.  It is always my favorite spot to watch the sun set.  

Have a great Monday!

Weekend Style + Best Deals

Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone is enjoying the start to the weekend.  My parents are down here visiting, they had some damage to their condo during Hurricane Matthew so they are dealing with that but we are excited to have them in town.  Today we have a birthday party and plan to do a little home shopping. 

I wore this off shoulder blouse for dinner last night.  I am still loving the off shoulder trend.  I loved the fall floral print on this one and it is under $70.  I am wearing the US 6 size.

Baublebar is offering 25% off the entire site.  I love all my jewels from there but these two earrings are my favorite.
Use code BOO25 for the discount.

I think I am going to order these for the Holidays.

Gigi New York is running a Halloween promotion as well.  You can earn gifts depending on how much money you spend.

50% off sweaters.  I went back this week and bought the gray vest like my tan because it is only $35 right now.  I am wearing a small.
Gray Vest | Tee | Jeans | Shoes also in several other colors HERE
I also picked up this sweater.  Runs large I am in an XS.

Nordstrom did some new mark downs.  
I have this off shoulder top in the red color and love it.  There are 3 colors left and they are on sale for $16!!  I am wearing the red version in the picture up top. 

I am loving this skull scarf.  It comes in so many colors and is only $19!   It reminds of the Alexander McQueen ones.  

I also like this one, it is only $30.  I don't why but I love skull scarves:)

I love this Vince Drape front vest that is now 60% off.  Would be great paired with leggings or jeans.

Happy Saturday and Happy Shopping!

Thoughts For Thursday

Lots of random stuff today:)

I started some one on one training at the gym this week.  In addition to my regular classes I am going to do 2 1 hour training sessions each week.  My goal is to firm and tone up and to be able to wear a 2 piece next Summer.  I always feel more comfortable in one pieces and want to feel that way in a bikini as well.   We took some initial measurements so in about 4 weeks I will try and share what we have been doing and if it works!
This workout tank is a favorite style of mine because it is not fitted- the back is super cute too!  

Yesterday I took the kids to the Legare Pumpkin Farm on John's Island.  I had not been to this one before.  The kids loved it, they were able to go in the pumpkin patch and pick their own pumpkins, do a hayride and then play on a playground there.  
I promise Frances had fun contrary to this face.

The pigs chasing the hayride kind of freaked me out.  I just kept thinking about bacon and how they were mad I ate it!
We brought Sterling's friend Oliver with us.  Such Cuties.

I am wearing the tee I mentioned Tuesday.

Lunch this week : Tuna + White Bean Salad and Hummus.

I just got two new cookbooks to add to my ever growing collection and both are awesome.  I own every single Ina Garten cookbook and I can promise you her recipes never disappoint.   Skinny Taste is a new find,  I have made several recipes of hers and they are always easy and tasty.

I bought this green blouse a few months ago and it sold out quickly but is now back in stock.
I am wearing a size small.  

I have been in the mood to bake this week and made Smitten Kitchen's Pumpkin Muffins.  They are always a hit. They are especially great drizzled with honey.
A recent outfit picked out by Frances Moon.  I have stopped trying to argue with her and just let her rock what she wants to.

Loft is having a major sweater sale and 3 of my favorites are part of it. 
I can't tell you how often I wear this vest.  It is not super cold in Charleston yet so I just toss it on over a tee shirt.  My mom and sister ordered it too they loved mine so much.  I am wearing a small.
also comes in gray.

This comes in several other colors but I am sucker for blush.  I am wearing a size small. 

Cowl Neck Tunic- now $29
I am wearing a small in this also.  It is super soft.  

I frequently get asked about my favorite wines and this rose is hands down one of my favorites and only $10!

Have a great Thursday:0  This made me chuckle!
