That 70's Show

4:10 PM

Oh hey there! The long weekend is almost over, but  fortunately I accomplished so much in these 3 days that it doesn't even matter! First of all, I discovered Faygosoda for the first time this weekend -  um, hello delicious! I am not a soda drinker, but this Strawberry Red Pop is just the bees knees!

Also, Joe and I went on a major cleaning spree over the weekend and we redid our living room completely, and I redid my closet - which is always fun for me because then I get to see old items that I’ve completely forgot about, but totally should wear again. 

Case in point - these fun, flared Express jeans! I’ll be honest, I haven’t been the most excited about the return of the bell-bottom pant. As a short girl, flared legs aren’t always the easiest look for me to pull off and I ALWAYS have the have the length tailored. See, skinny jeans can be rolled up or tucked under so length isn’t as pertinent as with flared denim. Nevertheless, I stumbled across a whole plethora of  pants in the bell-bottom variety, so I thought it would be fun to take a pair for a spin today. 

And since there is nothing more 70’s then some flare leg jeans and some plaid, I paired the pants with this J Crew gingham print button up which is still on SALE! I happen to live only 8 miles away from a J Crew Factory store and so I make my way there WAY too often. Nevertheless, today is the last day for their Labor Day Weekend sale and I have to admit, 50% off everything is pretty epic! I mean, if you are going to shop - why not do it when you can get half off?! So I stocked up on some fall essentials which will make for some really great future blog posts :)

And since I went the the outlets for a little shopping, I want to take a second to introduce all you Chicago ladies to the brand LWN (Love it. Want it. Need it.). This fashion jewelry brand is locally based (Rosemont Fashion Outlets) and they have the CUTEST stuff! Look at these cluster, bouquet earrings that are just too adorable for words and are on SALE for only $18!! Just know that if you walk in, you won't walk out with out a bag :) But no worries, just mention my blog when you shop in store or on the phone and get 10% off. Now y'all can love all the same things I love!!

And now it’s off to help Joe with his fantasy football draft and probably some quality snuggles with my fur baby. Hope y’all have had a great weekend!!
