40% off sale on spring basics at loft

I popped into Loft last night for their 40% off sale to try on some pieces to share with you, since they are having a 40% off sale. I get questions all the time about where to shop for good work clothes, and Loft is at the top of that list! They are also I place I like to stock up on cozy basics. Their Lou and Grey line is second to none when it comes to comfortable luxury at an affordable price. 

Unfortunately, our particular Loft didn't have a great selection so I couldn't try on as much as I had hoped. (Hence why I always online shop!) If you aren't an online shopper, I'd suggest popping into a store to get your sizing down and then ordering online. There's just so many more options that way! FYI at Loft, I tend to size down. I usually wear a size 4 and small at most stores, but XS and size 2 are my go-to at Loft. I will say their jeans are their exception to that rule, and fit TTS. 

Speaking of jeans...their jeans are AMAZE! You know I've been on the hunt for good white jeans and these fit the bill. My favorite from the day are the gray ones I tried on though, which I linked below. I linked to items in my try on session underneath each picture, but there are a ton more items linked in the widget below. Just click on the picture to shop. Use code FRIENDS to get 40% off your order. Happy Thursday!

Hair Treatment For Damaged Hair: Pantene Intense Rescue Shots

This post was sponsored by Pantene. All opinions are my own.

Spring is officially upon us, which means just a few short months til summer. I'm already scoping out all my vacations and hoping for lots of fun in the sun. Sunny adventures are always good for my soul, but they tend to produce damaged hair. I used to have a convertible and my hair would get DESTROYED with my topless drives from all the wind and constant exposure to the sun. Today, I'm much more thoughtful about my sun time, lathering on the SPF, never going outside without a hat, and doing everything I can to prevent sun damage. Still, lake days and pool time take a toll on my locks.

I have naturally curly hair, so it's always needed more moisture than the average girl, and I've done hair treatments for as long as I can remember. Combine naturally curly hair, with daily heat by way of straightening and styling, and it's a recipe for damaged hair. When Pantene reached out to me to ask me to try their first at-home rescue treatment, I was all in.treatment for damaged hair
pantene intense rescue shotsIf you haven't heard of them, Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots is a hair treatment for damaged hair that hit the market in January. They are imported from Brazil and each tube is packed full of an absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids and natural glycerin that targets damaged hair to give it the flexibility and resilience to endure styling and environmental stresses. The strengthening lipids actually absorb into your hair, instead of leaving a heavy film like some masks can do. They are also so perfect for a girl on the go, like me, because you only have to leave them in for 30 seconds and then rinse for 30 seconds...PRAISE! Treat yo'self and get on with your day babe, ya feel me?

Gaga Called, She Wants Her Hat Back

I've been in the market for a great spring hat and have been seeing this white ivory rancher hat floating around the internets so many times that I finally had to make it mine. You guys know I love a good hat. I really can't get enough of them. I've actually never splurged on an expensive hat before because I've always found them for reasonable prices, but when I saw this one, I knew I had to.

I'm the first to love a good deal, but as I've gotten older I've really begun to appreciate the value of a good splurgeworthy piece. For me, a good hat is at the top of the list when it comes to splurgeworthy investments. It's a versatile piece, you can wear with anything, and will definitely get your pay-per-wear out of.

I recently discovered a brand called Lack of Color, which is where I got this ivory hat. They are a company based out of Australia and could make me go broke if I let them. (This hat is on my summer wish list for sure.)

Also, making the cut for splurgeworthy pieces are these white crop jeans. This wide leg crop jean style is definitely the style to wear this year. It's a great piece to wear now through fall, as you can style them with boots and sandals or sneakers. You won't regret the purchase. You can expect this style to be on trend for the next few years.

Guys, we are so close to finishing the house it's insane. We've spent two weeks on grueling drywall repairs and let me tell you, they are not for the faint. I actually started crying on Friday night because I was just so exhausted and ready to be done. But thankfully over the weekend, we finally got to the point where we could start deep cleaning the walls and trim, getting the house ready for paint, and I felt so much relief because it's the final step before we get to start really putting the house together again. The end is in sight! Thanks for sticking with me as I've been a little MIA and not up with my regular content. It's just honestly survival mode for me at this point, and the blog has taken a bit of a back seat. I'm so, so, so excited for the content the new house will allow me to bring to you though! So many good things in store!

Best Athleisure for Spring

When it comes to athleisure, I simply can't get enough. If I didn't have to shoot on the weekends, it would be all I wore. Let's be honest, I love being comfortable, and if I can combine that with looking somewhat put together...I'm here for it.

I rounded up my favorite athleisure pieces for you to shop for Spring (some you have probably seen a ton on my Instagram). I actually own a ton of the products below and made notes about which ones I do, on the photo. Simply click on the photo to shop the item. 

The Most Versatile Piece I Own (And Why You Should Too)

It's been over two weeks since I wrote a blog post guys. As I mentioned on my stories last night, the house has got me stretched pretty thin. It's like, you know when you're in a spin class (or outside riding a bike) and you're at the top of the hill, and you're pushing and pushing with all your strength to get to the top, knowing that it's all downhill on the other side? That's basically where we're at. Pushing through all the super hard work right now, knowing that the finish line is just a few weeks away.

I'm exhausted, but pushing through because I know it will be worth it.

So, here I am, waking up at 5:30am on a Sunday morning to get some blog post written because in a weird way, this is a piece of me that's been missing for a couple weeks and I needed to carve out space for it.

I recently hired a photographer and it's been a godsend to let Brandon off the hook while we're in house renovations. I was always so nervous to hire someone because I've been shooting with Brandon for 6+ years, and I'm just comfortable with him. Luckily, Laura and I hit it off pretty quickly and have been making some fun content (which you have been seeing a lot lately over on Insta).
We've shot this leopard skirt a couple times now and I just can't get enough of it! It's definitely the most versatile piece that I own. I paired my leopard skirt with my favorite white tee, for a casual vibe, but have paired it with my favorite cropped sweaters, and oversized sweaters too. This is exact one is sold (dress version of it is here) out now but I linked to an almost identical version below. See how I styled another leopard skirt a few different ways here.

Speaking of white tees, this tee is the softest tee I've ever owned. It lays perfectly and has enough material to tie the perfect knot. You can buy it in a 3 pack (gray, black and white) here or by itself here. Highly recommend this tee!

5 Must Have White Pieces For Spring 2019

I haven't been buying a ton of clothes this month, because I'm spending on the monies on house stuff. Because I don't have much time to shoot right now, or even much time to write a blog post, I've been extra thoughtful with my purchases. That said, there are five staple pieces I've invested in this month that were absolutely shareworthy, so I wanted to do a quick post below. These items are definitely at the top of spring and summer 2019 fashion trends. (And I'm not talking runway trends. I mean trending pieces that you will actually wear, over and over again.)

I've been investing in interchangeable basics and totally think they are worth the extra money. Although pricier spends (I had to dip into my March clothing budget for these!) the items below will definitely see their pay-per-wear, and be in heavy spring/summer rotation.

Also, hi...clearly I can't get enough of white right now.

5 Must Have Trending White Pieces For Spring 2019

Ivory Rancher Hat - This is such a fun hat for Spring. You all know I love hats but was in need of a more spring-appropriate one. I've been seeing this one everywhere and love the fit. It's going to look so good with dresses and booties, or paired with jeans and a fun top. You'll wear this one over and over again, so it's worth the splurge and the quality is top notch.

White Button Up Blouse - I've seen one of my favorite bloggers wear this over and over again. She pairs it with shorts in the summer, or crop jeans in the fall/spring. It's a staple style that I finally snagged and know will wear over and over again.

High Waisted Wide Leg Crop Jeans - If you followed my white jeans saga over on Instagram, these are the jeans I finally landed on. I still may snag a skinny ripped pair, but these are definitely the "it" style of the season.

White Heeled Cowboy Mules - I honestly can't get enough of the mule trend, and there is no doubt these will be my go-to summer shoe. I had a similar woven flat version that I wore over and over again last year, so I knew I had to snag these when I saw them. They also make for a great way to dip your toe into the western trend, if you aren't sure you can pull off full blown cowboy boots.

Coin Necklace - I recently picked up a coin necklace and have been wearing it on repeat. It's the perfect layering piece to any look. I love these ones by designer Meghan Bo designs. Here is the Holy Spirit coin that I shared on my Instagram
