Before we get to all this frivolous stuff, I just want to send thoughts and prayers out to West, Texas. This has been a rough week and I know our hearts are all tender right now for those that are grieving.
Caroline woke up with fever in the middle of the night on Wednesday night. And even though she was a little better yesterday, her head still hurt and she just didn’t seem like her usual self. So the two of us spent our Thursday on the couch under a blanket.
I’ll be honest. It was not a bad way to spend the day. Especially because it was a cold, rainy morning and I feel like there’s been a lot of sadness this week and it felt good to have my girl home with me.
Anyway, that really has nothing to do with anything, but I just like y’all to know what’s going on around here.
The big news is that there’s an awesome giveaway today! One of you has the chance to win a $40 gift card to Fiddlin’ Frogs.
Fiddlin’ Frogs is a darling store located halfway between San Antonio and Boerne (pronounced “Bernie” as in weekend at) and I discovered it about two years ago. They have a great selection of clothes, jewelry and even home stuff.
And the best part is that they are offering all my readers 10% off any online or in-store purchases when you use the code “bigmama” at checkout.
Here are just a few things I found online that I love, but if you live in the area you should totally go check out the store in person.
I love this bella sleeve blouse.
And this solid mustard v-neck blouse.
And this butterfly infinity scarf would be so cute for the spring and summer.
All you have to do for a chance to win the $40 gift card to Fiddlin’ Frogs is leave a comment on this post. But, in the meantime, you can totally save 10% when you use the code bigmama.
And now here’s some more cute stuff I found this week.
I tried this on in Gap the other day and really, really loved it. But couldn’t decide if I really needed another maxi dress. However, I really liked the length on this one because I could wear it with flat sandals without getting it hemmed.
Plus, everything at Gap is 25% through Saturday when you use the code GAPMORE at checkout. And you get 35% off when you purchase more than $100.
This is the perfect statement necklace for summer. It would add a little something extra to just about any outfit and the price can’t be beat.
I learned about this from the CStyle blog. It’s a slip without any seams or bulk so it’s the answer to all those maxi dresses and cotton skirts when you need a little shape, but without any added lumps or bumps.
And, let’s be honest, none of us ever want lumps or bumps.
Last year I bought a pair of Franco Sarto wedge sandals that are very similar to these and I LOVE them. They go with everything and are so comfortable even though it’s a shoe with a heel. I believe they might be the perfect summer shoe.
I bought this in navy a few weeks ago and now I kind of want to go back and get the green. I’ve already thrown it on so many times because it’s so comfortable but can be dressed up a little with a pair of gold sandals and some cute accessories.
And did I mention that Gap is offering 25% off through Saturday with the code GAPMORE?
And while we’re on the subject of Gap, their essential tees are only $15.00 and come in a veritable rainbow of colors. This is a great staple for your summer wardrobe.
I’m not sure why this appeals to me, but I just love it. If I didn’t live in South Texas and maybe spent my summers in the Hamptons or something, I would totally get it and wear it over all white with some really great gold sandals.
Of course if I could afford to spend my summers in the Hamptons then I probably wouldn’t be buying a faux leather jacket from Charlotte Russe for $32.
Along those same lines, I’m a little obsessed with these sandals right now. However, they are significantly more than $15.
But look how pretty they are! Look at that gorgeous patent sand color! They’re an investment piece.
Now I think this is just darling. Perfect little summer purse to carry everywhere. I love everything about it.
Gap has these right now in several different prints and I really like them. They’re a great length and the prints are very summery and fun. Any of them would be great with a pair of white shorts or white skinnies.
And that’s it for this week.
Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter the giveaway!
Y’all have a good Friday.
