Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day, lovelies!  Did you have a good weekend?!  Mine was very productive.  I am happy to report Garage Sale Palooza went off without a hitch.  Thank you to everyone who came out and made it a success- it was so fun seeing some of you in person who I've only interacted with via social media.  We sold pretty much everything we had set out to sell.  In the spirit of the day, I wanted to take a moment and honor our veterans.  Thank you to all the brave souls who have served or are serving our country.  My favorite veteran is my grandpa JJ, who has now passed.  Here he is around the age of 18 serving in the Navy:

He was a crazy guy with a heart full of love.  After serving in the Navy, he became a golf pro and owned a golf course in Mauna Lani, Hawaii.  Some of my favorite memories growing up are of visiting him and hearing him tell all kinds of crazy stories.  If you or a loved one is serving or has served, my heart goes out to you.

 So after the garage sale, I told myself- "I'm going to be good and not even check out all of the Memorial Day sales."  Yet somehow I found myself in Anthropologie yesterday swooning over some fun summer pieces:

Here are a few of the outfits on.  I LOVED the fit and feel of the Matilde dress.  It's perfect for summers in Houston and I think I could actually wear it as a business casual option when paired with flats and a sweater/blazer over my shoulders.  I also loved the fit of the Veranda skirt, and HAD to try it on with a jean vest.  It felt so Fresh Prince of Bel Air:

Well, of course Anthro is not having a Memorial Day sale of any kind, so I only allowed myself to buy the embroidered tank.  However, I thought I'd share some of my Memorial Day sale picks from around the internet.  Some of these sales are too good, it's ridiculous.  I rounded up my favorite picks for your wardrobe, and then my favorite picks for your home:

  4. An attention-grabbing submit. I suppose your reviews are expressive and also founded. Think nearly everybody agreed within this thread.
