If We Were Shopping Together on Memorial Day Weekend….

…here’s what I’d tell you to grab up!  😉  Some of these items are included in my capsule for summer (and other seasons) already, and some are items I’d consider adding to fill spots for summer!  A few of my very favorites are included in this list, plus a couple of things I’ve been patiently waiting on popped up for sale this weekend….and I’ve been saving them a spot for this summer’s capsule–woo hoo! 

Love these perfectly distressed not-too-short shorts…on sale below!  My faves.

The updated version of my very favorite flares are included below!

I’m obsessed with this line of comfy, vintage tees…this blue one is on sale!

Sometimes I wish I wore the perfectly styled cocktail dresses and pointy toe heels many style bloggers post about (and look SO GORGEOUS in, btw….not hatin’), but….that’s just not me.  At least not right now in this phase of life of chasing littles and Mommin’ hard.  Maybe someday!  So I was very excited to find so many items on sale that I would (and do!) wear, and I thought my buddies might like to see them all in one place!  My style is comfortable, Mom-able, soft, light, easy, and did I mention comfortable?!  If you are vibin’ with me, I think you’ll love some of these picks below.  Let’s shop, buddies! 🙌🏻

Free People

Old Navy

Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend, and THANK YOU to those who have served and are serving our country…and their selfless families at home, too.  We honor you!

    Your favorite flare JEANS are from where? I looked at the American Eagle flare JEANS (not distressed) they look nice just wondering if they are the same as yours?
    Thank you for your time, Laura

    Hey Laura, sorry–some of the links didn’t come through the first time, but they are there now! My flares are older but the same cut and and fit as the newer ones I’ve linked! They look just a tiny bit different with the distressing but basically the same.

    AE artist flare jeans have been one of my go to styles for like 10 years ! They’re a keeper.

    Oh! I’m so excited! Last year I bought the most comfortable pair of sandals at Walmart. The best I’ve had on my feet in years. But I can no longer get them. Wish I’d have bought 3 pair. Now you’ve listed the exact same strappy sandal on sale at AEO. Wooohoooo! I know where I’m going tomorrow. Thank you !!!
