my anniversary sale favorites, unless you are John, in which case, what sale?

Okay. Deep breaths. This is what we've trained for, people.

*cues Olympics music, wins gold. In her mind. #itsfine

Not only has Early Access to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale started, it is also Amazon Prime Day. It's like that bomb cyclone storm thing, except on your wallet. #funforall #exceptforjohn

First of all, to shop the Anniversary Sale right now, you're gonna need to get a Nordstrom credit card. And I know, I know, you're certain that the minute you do, creditors will be calling and your credit score will automatically drop from 800 to 300. BUT, if you have actual boundaries, and even a minimal amount of self-discipline, then none of that will happen. Probably. Maybe. Seriously though, here’s what you do

the 8 most flattering shorts of summer

Shorts have always been my nemesis. Even 19 year old Sherri refused to wear shorts, mainly because she was highly annoying, and didn’t understand that she did not, in fact, have cellulite ON HER KNEES. She was the weirdo who would wear jeans to the actual beach. Or the pool. Or when it was 100 degrees outside. 

What 19 year old Sherri didn’t know was that pregnancies (and unnecessary amounts of peanut butter m&ms) would eventually bless her with ACTUAL, cellulite, spider veins, and old lady knees. She really didn't know that one day, she would look back and wish that she had walked around in daisy dukes every moment of the day.

She also didn’t know that she kind of had issues, and that doing 3 hours of cardio every day would make her look like a bobblehead. Younger Sherri didn’t know a lot of things.

valentine's day gift guide (the one we give our husbands)

Ladies, it’s February, and you know what THAT means….it’s time to pick out our own Valentine’s gifts, and let our husbands think it was their idea. And, guess what? This year, you can just HELPFULLY send your significant others this graphic. It’s very professional (ish) and will trick them into thinking they’re in a business meeting. With their boss, i.e. YOU. He will enjoy your carefully thought out list, and will NOT roll his eyes at you. Or say things like, “really, Sherri, AGAIN?” Or “don’t you think I know what you like after 15 years of marriage.”

amazon and appendicitis

Well, sometimes you plan to have all kinds of great holiday content pre-planned and ready to go the moment Black Friday hits. You just KNOW you’ll be super organized and on top of it, JUST LIKE ALWAYS AND WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING LIKE THAT?

#rude #butalsoaccurate

My goal was to plan content for the entire month of December, well in advance. And by “well in advance,” I mean November 29th, because apparently I DO NOT understand my actual personality or my organizational capabilities.

But, as The People Who Make Up Cheesy Quotes once said, Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. And I’d just like to rephrase that in a way that feels more authentic:

Appendicitis is what happens WHEN YOU’RE BUSY MAKING PLANS. x

moto style with Triumph

Believe me, if anyone can get stuck in a “I only shop at these 3 places” rut, it’s ME. (Hi Nordstrom! Hi Anthropologie! Call me!)

Sometimes though, I like to look for style in places that AREN’T my go-tos. That interesting store in the little town on your road trip. The girls section in your favorite department store. (I mean, you WILL have to size up. Like, a LOT. And even then, you may or may not look like a stuffed sausage in that tween’s jacket you picked out. And by you, I mean ME.)

(You may also embarrass your daughter by wearing the same outfit she has on. #whoops #sorrynotsorry)

wear two ways : the pencil skirt

I am ALL ABOUT finding multiple ways to wear my clothes. In fact, the more versatile an item of clothing is, the more it is free. In my mind. #sherrimath is a real thing. Or at least I'm trying to make it into one, so that I can convince John that I am actually frugal. 

It's not working. 

Anyway, while I was basically squatting at my local Nordstrom the last 3 weeks, I was introduced to this skirt. And before I show you why it is SO GOOD, let me just say this:  I was pretty certain this skirt and I wouldn't be friends. In fact, I would have probably never tried it. But then. THEN I did. And now we are married and I have to wear it EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

white jumpsuits FTW

Nothing strikes fear into a mom's heart like an all white outfit. Because, KIDS, y'all. Kids have an internal radar for anything pristine, and will basically find, seek, and destroy. 

They will use Cheeto fingers.

They will use mud and/or dirt.

They will use snot and boogers. 

They'll use things I haven't even considered yet, because THEY ARE TINY SAVAGES

living that lemon life

You know what they always say: When life gives you lemons, slap 'em on every piece of clothing you own and wear the heck outta them. 

What? Is that not how it goes?

But seriously y'all, lemons are fetch and also EVERYWHERE. They are this year's palm print, if you will. And you will, because I'm the Regina George of this blog.
