July is flying by in a blink isn’t it!? Crazy how some months go by so quickly while others (I’m talking to you January/February) feel like a never ending slog. Ha. I guess that means we are enjoying summer and I hope you are doing the same! I feel like my moto this summer has definitely been play hard/work hard. We have been having lots of fun in the sun with friends, but I have also been working hard to get a few things organized around here and I’m happy to be sharing a new solution that is making me happy in my bathroom!
I mentioned a while back in a post that I was loving this bathroom counter organizer. It really has been such a good solution for me! I had my vase & branches on a tray in this space, but I noticed that I kept putting my most used items on the tray to make life easier and it always looked cluttered and messy. So I ditched the tray! It’s happily living somewhere else now and this cute acrylic bathroom counter organizer is doing a much better job of holding often used items AND looking beautiful.
I love having Q tips close when I’m putting on my make-up (for some reason I’ve never learned how to put mascara on without getting it all over my eyes) and this cute acrylic Q tip holder keeps them tidy and accessible. It’s the little things. :)
Then I just have my every day jewelry in my little heart tray, my favorite perfume, makeup brushes, and all of my favorite skin care products that I use at night and in the morning on the organizer also. It really does make life easier to have my most used items easy to access! (*Sidenote – I just noticed while I was linking my skin care favorites that Colleen Rothschild is doing a Christmas in July sale – 25% off right now!)
Plus this organizer is just so cute and stylish. I love the gold grommets on the side! This is a great solution if you are short on drawer space in your bathroom and it could also be used under the sink to hold items that aren’t as pretty to display. I’m a fan!
Two days after I took pictures of my little organizer my new makeup brushes from the N sale came in the mail! So excited about these. I’ve had my previous foundation brushes for years and they were starting to fall apart. (I also have a foundation brush I really like that is similar to this in my drawer.)
Here are a few more N sale favs I ordered that finally arrived! These farrah raw hem high waist bootcut jeans must be the best kept secret of the sale because they are still in stock in most sizes! You know my love affair with AG jeans.. hands down the best fitting jeans for my body type. If you have curves or gain weight in your butt/thighs you will love these. They are so flattering! You might love them if you don’t gain weight in your butt/thighs too, I just wouldn’t know about that because that’s not the case here. Also I hate you and we can’t be friends anymore.
Very excited about some jewelry I picked up at the sale this year! I always wear a few bracelets on my left wrist and these are going to be my new go-to’s. Both so beautiful and I love them paired together.
I got the matching paperclip necklace to go with the bracelet too. So pretty and delicate! They would make beautiful gifts also.
I wanted to share this cute leather moto jacket too because it’s such a staple for me! I’m sure many of you recognize it (or own it!). It was part of the N sale a couple of years ago and they keep bringing it back no doubt because it’s a favorite. I have loved it! I wear it all year and it’s my go-to jacket for football games in the fall. It’s leather but lined with a soft sweatshirt material and hood making it so soft. I got my regular size going for a more fitted look and just wear thin long sleeved tops under it, but if you want to wear sweaters under it I would go up a size. A splurge but definitely worth it!
Wearing it in these pics we took on Addison’s birthday in May. :)
This is another favorite shirt from the sale! It’s oversized so I went down to an xxs and love the fit, but some reviews say that it shrinks when you wash it. I will wash mine and report back! It’s so big I actually wouldn’t care if it shrunk a little, but if you’re worried about that order your regular size. I LOVE the style and color for fall!
Another Madewell win! Such a cute sweater and it comes in pink too!
Ok – this quarter zip pullover was one of my favorites from the sale this year and I didn’t share it immediately because it sold out SO quickly in all colors, but they just re-stocked it! YEA! It’s so comfortable and cute! It’s on the short size but perfect to pair with high waist jeans/pants.
I know I will live in this when it cools off. Very tempted to get it in black or green too while it’s such a great price! (It’s oversized – I went down a size to xxs)
This cleo balloon sleeve top is another favorite top from the sale that you might remember from my initial collage round-up of the items I was most excited about. I wish it would have come in sooner to share because it looks like the black is sold out and the other colors almost are too. I’m hoping they re-stock it, but if not this is one top that is worth buying at full price when it comes back after the sale (in my opinion!). It’s so beautiful! I just can’t get over the sleeves. One to watch for and I’ll share it again if they re-stock it!
This funnel neck cotton blend sweater is another great find if you like turtlenecks like I do!
So soft and I love the sleeves! It comes in lots of color options.
Same sweater in black! It’s another oversized sweater so definitely go down a size. (This is xxs and still a little big!)
The sleeve has a slit in it giving it a fuller look at the bottom. CUTE.
Two other sweaters I love from the sale this year! (The blue and orange are the same sweater.) These are both cropped but work great with high waisted pants.
I didn’t have time to try this on to show you but this tank is so cute too! It has a built-in bra and is a great fit. I went up to a small in this one (my regular size felt a little too tight).
These live-in joggers are long time favorites they brought back to the sale again!
They also brought back these tees that I live in! I have multiples in all colors. I’m actually wearing one right now as I type this post.. ha! They are perfect to layer with cardigans and vests or just to throw on to clean, run errands, etc. I sleep in them all the time too. :) This year they also came out with these similar tees that have more of a sharp v-neck vs. the rounded v-neck so I ordered a couple to try!
They brought my cast iron grill back too! Love this for grilling chicken and vegetables. Also here is another pic of the beloved marble and wood serving board. It’s back in stock in black! After I shared it in this kitchen post full of N sale decor favs it was sold out for a few days.
I haven’t had time to share my kids’ favorites from the sale, but this is my favorite outfit I got for Kole this year. I can’t believe he is going into 8th grade next month! I have to say that so far middle school has been a breeze with this child! I was so worried after going through the middle school years with two girls. I had my combat boots ready and was gearing up for ALL the drama. Every day I picked him up from school and he had a smile on his face. (What!?) I would say “how was your day bud? Everything ok with classes? Everything ok with friends? Is everyone getting along?” And every day it was the same thing. “It’s good mom! All good. School is good. Teachers are good. Friends are good. But mom.. the girls my age. What is WRONG with them!?”
I told him if he wants my advice I’d steer clear until high school. We mellow with age. ;)
