As I teased via my social media yesterday, I'm completely head over heels with this CAbi outfit...perfectly styled for Fall! It's no secret I have a mild obsession with the clothing line...I'm always finding people who love CAbi as much as I do...we high five each other, wink, nod, do the secret handshake, and go on our way. :) Just kidding...but truly, my closet gets little heart palpitations each Spring/Fall when the new collections are debuted! I just love the chic sophistication that can be worn any and every day!
This BeautiFall outfit of mine features the Ryder Jacket, the Ladylike Tunic, and my new favorite jeans...the Stormy Wash Super Skinny Jean. You can check out CAbi's entire Fall collection here, where you'll recognize some other pieces I wore in this post!
I follow quite a few online boutiques on Instagram (I find that they put their best stuff on there), so naturally I start remembering the ones that consistently post really unique and amazing clothing.
And I wouldn't be doing my duty to all you fabulous readers of mine if I didn't share, now would I?
So here's 5 of my favorite online boutiques along with a couple of my picks from their shops. Maybe you've heard of some or maybe you haven't...so hopefully you can find something that suits your fancy, or the fancy of someone special. Make sure to click through to the shops, as these are just my individual picks.
Hello, Christmas is knocking on the door people.
Psst-The Mama Bird tee is my fave!
Y'ALL. I had my first junkin' experience a couple of weekends ago.
Some call it antiquing. Some call it junkin'. Some call it Round Top, Texas.
I call it a kid in a candy shop!
A couple of girlfriends and I took the hour and a half drive out to Round Top and totally scored some amazing finds and deals...haggling is completely the norm...something I didn't realize until AFTER my first purchase. After we got the jist of our whereabouts (booths as far as the eye can see) and what we mainly were looking to find...the day was a hit!
^^^ I got one of these candle holders....but no candles. Hoping to find some on Amazon for cheap. ^^^
^^^ My favorite find...an old windmill I somehow was lucky to get for only $60!!! ^^^
Okay, so let me tell you about my personal "interior decorator". My friend Sienna....who's track record of suggesting amazing additions to our new home has resulted in the barn doors and the above windmill turned kitchen light fixture. I absolutely love it! Her husband and Blake turned it into a fully functional light that's now over the kitchen table. She's got an eye, I tell ya'!
The other day we went to our local park to have a little change in scenery for Tyler Bree's homeschooling. On this particular day, all three of the other kids were at school, so I decided to make it special for her with a picnic, but didn't want to use the worn-out sandwich, snack bar, or goldfish route....those foods don't stick with my kids anyway. So instead, I brought along some snacks with healthy protein and a welcomed variety for both of us!
I picked up these two Hillshire snack varieties at our local Super Target and was pleased with how much Tyler Bree loved them...especially the chicken with honey mustard. My palate was content with the yummy gouda and salame plate. I felt fancy! We ended up hanging out there for a bit while she did some of her reading...but then felt rain drops, so we cut the outing short. For Tyler Bree, changing it up makes a huge difference in terms of her focus and motivation...and besides, being outdoors always uplifts the spirit!
As a quick homeschooling update, she is really doing well with the two-day school program and has impressed me with her drive to complete tasks while at home (I'm guessing it's that accountability to her teacher, rather than to me). I'm supplementing a few things at home such as vocabulary, writing, reading comprehension, and a little extra math. I'll keep updating as we continue to figure out this homeschooling thing...it really is true that it's a day-to-day, year-to-year type of deal...but so far, it's still the best thing for her and is working quite nicely for us.
