friday favorites : back to school edition

Guys, get excited! It's FRIDAYYYYYY FAVORITESSSSSS!!! 

(I know what you're thinking, and the answer is yes. I AM pretending to be Oprah. Act like it's normal, okay?)

If you're anything like me, you've been drowning in a sea of back to school this, and back to school that. You've probably taken your kids back to school shopping, gotten back to school haircuts, and attended a million back to school events.

dressing daughters

...is the worst. The end

Just kidding. Mostly. But I'll bet some of you #girlmoms will relate so hard to this post. When our daughters were babies and toddlers, it was REALLY FUN to dress them, right? Whether you were into smocking or skinny jeans, cold shoulder shirts or big bows, it's like playing dress up with a cute doll. One who cries, poops, and throws tantrums. yes. But a doll who will at least wear what the heck you spend your cash money on, because DOESN'T SHE KNOW PEOPLE PAY YOU TO DO THIS??. A-HEM.

second (and third) round picks

Now, I'm not saying I have favorites among my precious anniversary sale purchases. Except that I do.  I totally do. And can I tell y'all a little secret? Almost none of those favorites ever come from Round One. Year after year, it's ACTUALLY my ROUND 2 (or 3...or 4....) picks that end up being my go-to staples. (You'll know which ones are my faves by the way you see them many days in a row, without regard for societal norms and things like cleanliness.)

the big five

Let's be honest guys, there are WAY MORE than 5 things from the Anniversary Sale that I LOVE AND ADORE AND WANT TO COME LIVE WITH ME FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER. 

(Because I am obviously excited about the #nsale at what is a completely normal and emotionally stable level.)

Despite being the worst at narrowing down a list, for you guys, I can do it. I came up with FIVE. Five things that are probably selling out as I type these words. I'm looking at you Rag & Bone circle bag that was in my cart on it's merry little way to checkout, and THEN GOT STOLEN FROM ME by Super Speedy Susan, who was more organized, quicker with her card, and who is also fake but it helps me to blame someone, okay?  #actlikeitsnormal

early access : round one

I (and every other blogger on Instagram) enjoy referring to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale as "Christmas in July." 

(John enjoys referring to it as THINGS I CAN'T REPEAT IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN. He's adorable like that.) 

Shopping the sale isn't hard y'all. Figuring out which one of your kids still gets to attend college is the hard part.

anniversary sale tips and tricks

As we speak, the Sale That Shall Not Be Named is about to commence. You may know it by it's other name: The Sale that Causes John to Twitch Every Time A Package Arrives. Clearly, I'm referring to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. And since it's the most wonderful/annoying time of the year, I wanted to share a few of my tips and tricks to shop the sale LIKE THE BOSS THAT YOU ARE.

friday faves : mdw sales

It's that time of year again, guys. The time of year where ALL the MDW Sales try to come along and steal my cash money away from Nordstrom's upcoming Anniversary Sale. Mama ain't falling for that, y'all.

J/K, mama is TOTALLY FALLING FOR IT. That's what credit cards are for, right?

Disclaimer : Yes, I DO realize that credit cards are bad, and financially irresponsible, and JOHN STOP LAUGHING IT'S RUDE.

mama's day

I have to start this post with a disclaimer. I know Mother's Day is hard for some of y'all. And for you, I wish I could reach through this computer and give you your OWN DANG mother's day gift. You deserve it. Because you've had to do the hardest work of all. You've had to deal with grief. Or loss. Or maybe you've had to learn to be a mother, when you never had a great example from which to learn. And you are badasses. All of you.

white jeans with amelia's

Because it's Friday (and on Fridays we FAVORITE), I need to introduce you to one of my favorite boutiques. While showing you one of my FAVORITE trends. 

Try to calm down and manage your excitement. (Or else start a drinking game based on the number of times I call something my favorite.)

(With COFFEE obviously, because it's 9am and this isn't that kind of blog, y'all. Unless it's 5 o'clock somewhere.)

spring break : do's and don'ts

It's that time again, friends. The time where we say BLESS OUR HEARTS and WE CAN (possibly) DO THIS.  

It's spring break, y'all.  

Spring break USED TO mean that I would throw my cutest bathing suits into an overstuffed duffel bag, pile into someone's mom's minivan, and drive 12 hours straight to Miami. Because COLLEGE.

friday faves : triple points edition

Guys, I feel that it is my DUTY and responsibility to inform you that it's TRIPLE POINTS time at Nordstrom.

*jumps up and down excitedly while simultaneously ripping my Nordstrom card out of my wallet as quickly as possible. 

(jk, I don't even need the card. That number's been memorized for years.)

must-have jacket for spring

This style tip is coming straight to you from the runways of....my mind. Which may not be as fancy as a fashion week runway, but STILL. Take one look at these metallic jackets and tell me you don't want one too. 

(Unless you don't enjoy being all HEY LOOK AT ME, I'M WEARING A SILVER JACKET. Then you actually may not want one. I still love you though.)

spring staples : splurge vs steal

Guys! It's Sherri's Famous (not really) Splurge vs. Steal edition!
And YOU get a steal, and YOU get a steal, and YOU get a steal!

(Don't mind me, just over here pretending to be Oprah, again.)

In honor of the fact that it's basically the dead of summer now, I'm gonna share a few of  my warm weather favorites today. First I'll show you a splurge-y option that will definitely cause your significant other to question your spending habits. Next, I'll show you my "steal" option, which essentially qualifies as INVESTING your money and making financially responsible decisions.

(last minute) vday for him

Y'all can just thank my extreme procrastination and inability to multitask for the fact that this is going up the DAY BEFORE Valentine's Day.  So, lean in close....this is what we're gonna do. Should you be an extreme procrastinator like me (duh. you're my people), then we're taking a note from the husband's playbook. We'll buy the gift, and then PRINT A PHOTO to slip inside a valentine's card.  GENIUS.
