Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? Sloan took the SAT for the first time, putting her that much closer to college. It’s crazy to think one year from now we’ll be planning her graduation and all the fun that comes with it.
Today I’ve got a hodgepodge of life lately, so let’s get to this month’s This & That…
Pretty in Blue //
Our darling (not so) Little Miss celebrated her Junior Prom, and had an absolute BALL! She took her best friend, and they both agreed ‘no dates’ was the way to go! You know I’m on board with that idea, ha!
We hosted the pre-prom party at our house, and LAND Party Rentals knocked it out of the park with a fun balloon backdrop for photos! If you’re local to DFW, I highly recommend them!
We made a fun Before & After reel of them getting ready that is just too cute! See it HERE.
Back in Stock //
I’m crazy for these designer-style totes, and have been carrying them for everyday… but turns out they also make great pool and beach bags!! The faux-leather repels moisture and sand brushes right off. Not to mention, they’re DARLING!
Cover Me in Sunshine (Tienda Hats) //
Speaking of beachy styles, my favorite super stylish Sunshine Tienda hats are now sold at Social Threads!! They carry their best-selling hats plus a range of accessories HERE… and the good news is our code SUGARPLUM10 gives you 10% off!!
I have the ‘Rosita Multi’ colorway, but it won’t be long before I add another. Assuming I can choose… they’re all so cute!!
If You Can’t Tone It, Tan It //
It’s shorts and skirt season, which means it’s time to put some color on my winter-white legs!! I’ve been a long-time fan of St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse, but the moment I tried this Loving Tan 2-Hour Express Mousse, I knew it was my new go-to!
The color is SO GOOD, the smell is minimal, and it lasts for days! It gives immediate color, which makes it so easy to apply, and develops in a few short hours. I wear it all day before rinsing before bed, and my tan will last about a week. This mitt is a must-have for applying with a flawless finish, too.
Splish Splash, I Was Taking a Bath //
These two cuties got a spring cleaning last week, and they’ve never been fluffier or smelled better! We used Barkbus, and it was so convenient!! They roll up to your house in a decked-out sprinter van, complete with power and water supply, and an hour later the pups emerge squeaky clean!
Our pups get distressed spending a full day at the groomer, so this was a much more stress-free experience.
Dime Skincare Faves //
One of my most-requested codes over on Instagram is for Dime!! Which means y’all are loving their products as much as I am! I love their clean formulas, and the lash serum works wonders!! The new tinted Wonderscreen is the perfect everyday SPF with just a hint of coverage and glowy finish. It’s rare to find an effective mineral sunscreen that actually leaves your skin looking better after applying!
DRD Jackpot //
My latest Dressing Room Diaries was hands-down my biggest style jackpot in months! Retailers are really bringing the cute styles, and for the first time, I actually kept more than I returned! #ooops Find it all HERE.
Closet of Our Dreams //
We’ve slowly started making a few changes around the house to fit our needs… starting with the primary closet. It is a gorgeous space, but had no shelves, drawers, or space to hang anything other than shirts. After living in it for eight months to see what it truly needed to be as functional as possible, we recently added adjustable shelves, drawers, and removed some of the smaller sections to allow for longer hanging styles like dresses, skirts, and pants.
My friend Annie from SOS Home Organization came over to work her magic, and we could not be happier with how functional and beautiful it turned out!! I added the links to some of the key organizational pieces we used below.
Sunglasses Display Case | Handbag Dividers | Drawer Dividers | Accessory Trays | Command Hooks | Woven Laundry Bins | Felt Hangers | Bamboo Pant Hangers
Gauzy Plaid Button Down | Braided Sandals (TTS)
Spring in Texas //
Welcome to Spring in Texas…. one moment it’s breezy and cool, the next your yard is covered in golf ball-sized hail! This storm was one of the craziest I’ve seen!!
Always in Our Hearts //
Some days it feels like yesterday, and others an eternity… but it’s been a full year without our darling Bridget. We celebrated her life and what would have been her 17th birthday last month. It’s never easy to let those emotions come to the surface, but also so beautiful to honor her precious life.
Ten Tops //
Part Two of our Darling Tops for Spring was a popular one…did you catch it yet? See the fun styles HERE.
Sloan is Seventeen //
Our precious Sloan is 17!!??? Hooowwwwww?!?! We had a series of small celebrations, but celebrated her actual birthday at a volleyball tournament in Kansas City. We had so much fun together, and really loved KC!!
She played her favorite sport by day, and we celebrated with her team at night. Chicken N Pickle was the perfect spot for a casual team party, and they easily accommodated our large group.
Amazing Amazon //
Amazon Hauls continue to be the most popular posts each month, and my latest was no exception! But hello… look how cute all these styles are!! See my latest finds HERE.
Monday Mail Day //
Speaking of popular series, Monday Mail Day is the repeating request on Instagram Stories! I’m thrilled you like my random, QVC-style finds I share each week! Here’s a peek of what arrived the last few weeks… but if you only buy one thing, let it be this… ok, or this!
Bedroom Updates //
Our primary bedroom has slowly been getting a makeover, and I love how it’s coming together! This is such a large space, so we’ve been taking our time and waiting for the best sales. We really scored with the bed… I found an ‘open box’ deal, and it’s perfect!
Here’s a peek of a few of the updates, and I’ll share the full design direction soon.
Besties Abroad //
It’s always a good time with these cuties, and San Miguel proved to not only be an incredible backdrop to shoot our new GLxHSP Summer Collection (announcement coming this week!), but also the perfect girl’s trip location! I shared more about the fabulous hotel we stayed at HERE, and some of our outfits HERE… but a full Trip Report is coming soon, plus the launch of our new Collection!
Wowza, Walmart //
Um… cuteness check on aisle 13! Walmart has been slaying the fashion game lately, but these pieces even turn it up a notch! It’s all under $50, and I’m a size XS in all pieces.
Wanderlust Necessities //
With summer around the corner, our frequent flyer miles will start racking up again!! After years of trial and error, I have my carry-on life down to a science, and these are my go-to essentials! Find them all HERE.
And my travel style is pretty much always the same… Vuori + denim jacket, and always the Calpaks!
How’s that for a random round-up? But that’s the This & That of life around here lately! Happy Monday, lovebugs!
