Currently Loving .192

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! Yesterday, we went to pick up Julianna's computer and school schedule. My girls go to a charter school and the fifth through eighth graders go to the middle school. How is she already going to middle school?! Time is seriously just flying by, way too fast. I am certain that time moves faster when you become a parents, well at least after they are potty trained. The days of changing diapers seem to move so slowly, lol!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving and every single one of my pickthis week are from my beloved Madewell! Also, almost almost everything is also on sale for an additional 30% off the sale price with the code WHATADEAL. I haven't really purchased a lot this spring + summer but the deals that Madewell has been having lately has had me doing some shopping. I have added several really cute pieces to my wardrobe... for a great deal!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. E A R R I N G S | I have currently been loving small gold hoops. I love layering my necklaces so I feel like I need to balance out the necklaces (and arm party) with smaller, more simple earrings. This cute pair from Madewell is on my wish list!



2. T E E | I have a thing for gray tees and my closet is proof. I love throwing on a gray tee with denim and gold jewels for easy look. This tee is so cute!


3. B A G | Isn't this bag beautiful?! The style is so cute and I am loving the leopard print. This bag would also transition perfectly into fall + winter!


4. S W E A T E R | I already own and absolutely love this sweater tee! It's one of my favorite recent purchases. The quality and detail are just even better in person! The fit is true to size.


5. T O P | The details on the straps of this top are just so pretty! I really want to add this to my cart ASAP. It would pair perfectly with shorts, jeans, or a skirt!


6. S A N D A L S | These sandals have been on my wish list for awhile and now that they are on sale, I might have to finally buy them! Metallic sandals are my favorite.


7. S K I R T | This denim skirt is a classic piece! I already own and love a similar skirt that I wear often. Mine has had a spot in my closet for years!


8. B R A C E L E T | This is another item that I recently purchased and love! I think I have worn this bracelet just about everyday since it arrived in my mailbox. It's so comfortable to wear and of course, it's cute! I love layering it with other bracelets, too.


Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!

Currently Loving .191

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! Last weekend, my husband and I spontaneously purchased a spin bike from Facebook Marketplace. It was something that I had been wanting for my home workouts but when we saw the bike for such a great deal, we had to get it! I would have loved to purchase a Peloton bike but it just wasn't in the budget. So, this bike is a great compromise plus I can use the workouts on the Peloton app with it! Such a great budget friendly solution and it has totally got me back into gear as far as working out goes. Exercise is great for physical health but I personally need it for more mental health so much more. The Peloton workouts have been so encouraging for me and I am finally motivated to exercise again!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! I got in a bad habit starting back in March of just wearing ultra comfy clothes around the house. I kept "saving" my special clothes for special occasions. But, when I realized that we weren't just staying home for two weeks, I had to start wearing my favorite spring and summer clothes! Don't save clothes for special occasions; everyday is special enough to wear what you love and what you feel good in! I already own number three and it made my Thursday working from home even more special. There's lots of great pieces in this week's roundup to wear now and later!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. D R E S S | I have a thing for little black dresses! They are so timeless and they instantly make you feel beautiful. I'm really love the sleeves and the button detail on this one! You can save 15% off with my discount code EMILY15!


2. G O L D  S A N D A L S | I absolutely love metallic sandals! They are just my favorite. I love this strappy pair and they remind me so much of a pair that I bought last year. So perfect for wearing with dresses and skirts and shorts and everything!

3.  B L A C K  T O P | This is the top I wore yesterday and it's just so flattering! The buttons are functional so this would also be a great top for nursing mamas. The fit is true to size, too. I plan to wear this throughout the rest of summer and transition it into fall with jeans!


4. L E O P A R D  S A N D A L S | How cute are these sandals?! They also look incredibly comfortable. They are currently on sale right now, too! Such a great summer shoe!


5. B A G | This bag is also on sale and it's such a great crossbody bag! You just can't go wrong with leather bags from Madewell. The quality and size is always amazing.


6. J E A N S | As much as I love Madewell bags, I equally love Madewell denim. I have tried so many pairs of jeans but I always come back to Madewell. I love the fit and they last forever! I personally size down one size from my normal denim size in their. I am really loving the style of this pair!


7. H E A D B A N D | Is it possible to have too many headbands?! For me, I don't think so! I literally wear one almost every single day and I share them with my daughters. My favorite and my comfortable ones are from J. Crew. They don't hurt my head at all!


8. W H I T E  T O P | White tops are my favorite! I have quite the collection of cream, off white, and white tops in my closet. I love pairing them with denim! This cute top would be great with shorts when it's still warm or a cool summer night but it would also be fantastic with jeans in the fall. I love finding pieces that I can wear through multiple seasons!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an amazing weekend!

Instagram Roundup .212

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great week so far! I'm living that mom/work from home life... going on month number four. We did find out that our girls will be going back to school two days a week (other three will be remote learning) in early August. Soooo... that means it's time to get in gear and do a little bit of back to school shopping! The main thing they needed was shoes so I just ordered these sneakers for both of my girls. Black sneakers for kids is the way to go! They stay looking clean for so much longer and these wash up really well in the machine, too.

Today, I'm sharing my bi-weekly Instagram Roundup, including all of the outfits that I have worn the past two weeks. I have honestly been better about actually getting dressed the past few weeks because it really does trick my brain into being more productive. I have also added a few new pieces to my wardrobe so that makes getting dressed a little more fun!

Currently Loving .190

Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! Mine has been good but honestly, I'm tired! My husband has been traveling out of state since Sunday for work and I've missed him so much. He hasn't had to travel since winter so I have really appreciated having him at home the past few months. Thankfully, he will be home today and I'm hoping we can have some socially distance fun tomorrow. I'm thinking a hike and a picnic at a new place would be fun!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! Madewell is still running an amazing sale. Almost all sale items are an additional 40-50 percent off with the code GIANT! There are so many great pieces on sale that will also transition into cooler weather, including great denim. Over half of this week's picks are on major sale!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. R U F F L E  T O P | This top might be my most favorite pick of the week and it's one of my Madewell sale picks! I love this color (and don't own anything in this shade) and the style is so feminine. It would be so cute paired with denim shorts now or layered under a blazer with jeans when the weather cools off. It's currently in my cart! It also comes in two other colors.


2. C U F F | This classic cuff is also on sale for under $15! I love pretty gold cuff for my own arm parties. I might need this one too!


3. L E O P A R D  T E E | I bought a similar leopard tee last season and it's still on rotation in this summer's wardrobe. It's a great casual piece!


4. J E A N S | If you buy one thing from the sale, get a pair of jeans! You won't regret it. I personally love the style and fit of this pair! Size down at least one size from your regular denim size. You will be so happy you have these jeans when fall rolls around!


5. L A C E  T R I M  T A N K | I am currently really loving lace details! The lace trim on this tank just totally makes this basic tank so much more special. Perfect for throwing on with shorts to feel instantly put together on these hot summer days!


6. S A N D A L S | Y'all! These gorgeous leather sandals are currently on sale for under $20! They are such a great everyday sandal that will last for multiple seasons. Such a classic for a great price! They also come in silver, too.


7. H E A D B A N D | If you follow me over on Instagram, you know my love for headbands runs deep. Earlier in the week, I shared three ways that I love to wear headbands. I have been hunting for some great budget friendly headbands and my search led me to this one. It's around $7 and comes in other colors as well. I am loving the pink!


8. S W E A T E R | I shared this sweater a couple of weeks ago but I had to share it again. I purchased it and met it in person so I can confirm that it is amazing! It's on sale for an amazing price and will absolutely become a closet staple. Wear it with shorts for a great transitional style, pair it with jeans, or layer it up when it's cold outside. It's so versatile! The fit is true to size.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Four Ways to Style a Denim Skirt


With Style & Grace
Happy Wednesday! Over on Instagram today, I'm teaming up with my friend Joanne from Fabulously Average to share multiple ways to style a denim skirt! The exact denim mini skirt that I am styling for y'all is from a previous season so it's not available anymore but I found similar options available to get the same look: 




Okay, now onto to the outfits! Some of the pieces I styled with my denim skirt are also items that I have had in my closet for awhile. I feel like I have done a better job shopping for myself the past couple of years because it's harder to get rid of things because I genuinely still love them! My wardrobe in the past just felt so disposable but I try to invest in quality pieces that I know I'll wear for multiple seasons. I am currently loving my closet more than I ever have before!

Currently Loving .189

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! This weekend is the first weekend in months that feels kind of normal. The girls have a modified dance recital on Saturday, we have a birthday party to attend, and I'm back to serving at church on Sunday morning. It's honestly kind of strange to have to be somewhere at a certain time, outside of my home!

Today, I'm sharing weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving! This week's roundup is lots of great neutral pieces that can easily mix and match into your wardrobe. I absolutely love neutral clothing because it's so much easier for me to put together an outfit. Simple, easy, and comfortable is my favorite! My closet used to include all of the colors and prints... and I was overwhelmed. Finding what works for you in your wardrobe to make getting dressed simpler, makes one less thing to stress about. Yes to less stress!

5. D R E S S | I absolutely love this dress! A leopard print swing dress?! Yes! Dress it up with heels or down with sandals. It would also transition so perfectly into fall with a denim jacket!




6. J E A N S | If you've been wanting a pair of Madewell jeans, this pair is it! They are currently on major sale and for a really great price for denim. I own a very similar pair that I wear all of the time! Madewell jeans fit so well and the quality is always amazing. I personally size down one size from my normal jean size in their denim.
