Game Day Series: Red and Turquoise

Hey friends! I may be writing this post from Colorado, but it’s still Game Day in Oklahoma! When I saw this top I knew it would be perfect for OU games. It’s flowy and has the perfect sleeves! Pictures do not do it justice at all.

Mumu Thatcher Tie Top

Hey friends! Happy Tuesday. Yesterday we celebrated Billy’s 27th birthday! I cannot believe we are so old. When I was a teenager, I thought I would have kids and a big house by 26. But now, I’m just trying to take things day by day. We’re extremely happy about where we are in life right now. We’ve both been employed at jobs we love for over a year. Billy works as a relationship banker at First United Bank and I’m a social worker at Norman Regional Hospital. We’re very happy with where our careers are. I’m under supervision for my clinical license and love my mentor/supervisor Whitney. We have a cute little home in Norman with our fur babes. Life is good. I couldn’t ask for anything more. We are so thankful for our health, our family and one another.

Billy is an easy guy to please. I took him to Saltgrass for dinner (his preference). We came home and he watched football on TV. Pretty much his idea of a perfect night. Good steak and football, who can blame the guy? I’ve linked the outfit I wore to our date down below. This blush/rose top is flowy perfection. I definitely recommend sizing once size down. It’s originally $140 and on sale for $98!

Soft Bell Sleeve Top

Guys, bell sleeve tops are super hard for me to turn down lately! I think they’re so cute and fun. I wanted to link this one below before it sells out. It’s the perfect taupe color and so so soft. It can be worn on its own, but I think it would be really cute with a utility vest for fall. It’s a really good transitional piece, I definitely think it could be paired with jean or white shorts until it cools off enough for jeans. Speaking of jeans, these AG Jeans are my absolute favorite pair and I wear them constantly. They’re the perfect medium wash. I love that they’re so stretchy and comfortable. They are also linked below. Lastly, I highly recommend these booties! They have a very small heel, they’re perfect for walking long distances. Shoes of all kinds seem to give me blisters but these have been gentle on my feet so far! The taupe color is great for fall, they’re the perfect fall staple.

Topshop Look Alike

I’m one of those girls who go crazy for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. I literally purchase my whole fall wardrobe in just a few days. This Topshop sweater instantly caught my eye. But, apparently it caught everyone’s eye because it sold out super fast. Since then I’ve watched it come in and out of stock. Mostly, out of stock. I’ve finally found one that’s super similar and have linked it below!

Mix Print Kimono

Hey guys! I found the best kimono and wanted to share it with you! I love the print and colors. It’s perfectly flowy. Below I paired it with shorts (because it’s blazing hot here in OKC). But, I think it would also be really cute with distressed jeans or white jeans. I also linked a dupe for this Rebecca Minkoff handbag, it’s less than $30!

Embroidered Dress and Teacher Plan

Happy Monday! I wanted to fill you all in on something going on in my professional life! Recently I accepted an offer to participate in what my department is calling a “Teacher Plan”. Our hospital’s census typically dips pretty low in the summer, so you have all of these full-time employees with not much work to do (this is tricky because sometimes you can have a small amount of patients, but they have complex and numerous needs). But the thought behind it is, to help with productivity issues, one employee will be off 8 weeks during the summer, returning September 11th. I eagerly volunteered! I keep my title, position, benefits, etc., but I get some much needed time away from work. Being a social worker is so emotionally rewarding but also extremely exhausting. I thought this teacher plan would be the perfect way to practice some self-care. I’m so excited to have some time off. Once upon a time I considered becoming a teacher (not because I have a passion for teaching) but just so I could get the summer off. Lol. I plan to relax, take a couple of trips, and become more diligent in posting on my blog and Instagram. I can’t wait to see what this little break from work has in store! I’ll keep you guys posted! 

Also, I’m sharing this dress below! I bought mine at Cayman’s in Norman, OK. But it’s also available online.
