Happy Hour Vol. 8

Hooray for the weekend! Anyone else feel like they need this weekend real bad?! I sure do! I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we had out last happy hour date y’all! There is so much to catch up on around these parts so grab your coffee or mimosa- and let’s get into it!


{What the heck I’ve been up to lately}

WORK- Is there a word that means crazier than crazy? Because that’s how busy things are in my office! It seems like things are changing everyday and truth be told I’m just trying to keep up (and hopefully I am doing great work in the process). My last market trip of the year will be in November and I can’t wait to see what great things I find for Spring!

TRAVEL- This summer was the summer of travel- I had a trip almost every other weekend and there was no time to just relax, be home, catch up on life, etc. But after cancelling a trip to Atlanta last weekend I’ll have a whole stretch of weekends in the Sunshine State and I cannot tell you how happy that makes me! I didn’t realize how much my heart was craving some time at home until it snuck up on me šŸ™‚ Excited to just “be” here for awhile- especially in the midst of crazy office life!

HEALTH- I’ve talked about it a ton on stories but not on the blog yet… on Monday I officially start the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and I am so excited to share this journey with you! I’ve actually been “pre-prepping” all this week to try and get the hang of the program and I absolutely love it! Like, I can completely see why this program is so successful – it’s fabulous! I will have a full post coming on Monday to share my kickoff, so if you have anything you’re dying to know drop a comment below and I’ll cover it all then!


{This and that I’ve found and am loving}

Floral Waist-Defined Dress – In case you missed the memo, fall is here! Unfortunately that doesn’t mean much if your a Florida girl like me, so I try and participate in the season by scooping up great fall dresses like this one! the print is so pretty & I love the ruffle detail on the collar. So flattering!{40% off with code “THANK YOU“}

Leather & Ponte Mixed Leggings – Everyone in the USA seems to have hopped on the Spanx Faux-Leather Legging trend (except for this girl!) Since we don’t get much fall/winter here I just can’t justify the price point. Old Navy to the rescue! How cute are these mixed faux-leather/ponte knit pants?? They are the perfect compromise for a girl like me!{40% off with code “THANK YOU“}

Navy Mixed-Print Dress – I swear y’all this dress looks like it could be from Madewell! The design is so pretty and classic, add a pair of booties and you are all set! {40% off with code “THANK YOU“}

Lance Block Heel Booties – Speaking of booties… these are a total classic! My go-to pair is only a few wears from being done-for so I’ve been on the hunt for a well-priced new pair. These are it! Just so perfect for everyday wear and to accessorize with both dresses and jeans.

Ruched Body-Con Dress – Is this dress even a question?? Hot pink for fall? Yep! I’d layer a poncho over it or one of my new long-line cardigans and you’ve got such a cute look!


{What I’m up to this week/weekend}

This weekend is the Patrick Brett Foundation (PBF) Gala and I’m so excited I can’t hardly stand it! PBF gives second chance scholarships to students who have overcome hardships or obstacles in their lives and are now pursuing or looking to finish a 2 or 4 year degree. When I say I cried reading some of the applications that is not an exaggeration! These are some AMAZING people y’all and I cannot wait to meet them all in person Saturday and congratulate them. It is going to be a night to remember!
