OOTD, Shoes, Tacos, Pillows ...the usual

Thank you all for the sweet comments on my "blog birthday" post!
...made my day! 

Oh, I figured I'd post some recent OOTDs!
(Trying to make more of an effort in taking outfit pictures)

Before a casual dinner one night with Brandon...
J. Crew Cardigan, Express Shirt & Shorts, BCBG Shoes, Kate Spade Purse

Before a baby shower I attended this weekend...
French Connection Linen Shift Dress, Necklace from Copper Penny Boutique in Charleston

...and both of these outfits have these babies in common:

I saw these BCBG wedges at Saks Off Fifth about a month ago.  They were around $225, marked down to $125.  I passed, but loved them. 

I went back to Saks Off Fifth a couple weeks later and they had been marked down to $75!  Not only that, but SOF (Saks Off Fifth) was having their annual shoe event, so all shoes were 40% off. Then, all customers with their rewards card could take off an additional 10%! -Making them around $40! 

Dad always has said, "Good things come to those who wait."  
Well, he was right in this case! 

I also recently got these Sam Edelman Gigi sandals & have been loving them.  They are so comfortable! 

I got them for 20% off on with free shipping (& they have free return shipping, too!).  You can almost ALWAYS find a coupon code for if you search Google for one. 

Come to think of it, I rarely buy things online unless I have some sort of coupon code, which I can normally always find!  


I had a relaxed weekend.  Was a homebody & visited my parents, went to a baby shower, went to church with the family, and caught up on some sleep.  

When I got back to Charleston this evening, Brandon and I went to Folly Beach to eat at Taco Boy. 

I don't even feel bad about eating a plate of nachos & maybe a milkshake afterwards because this week, I'm going to eat very healthy (on top of my regular exercise plan).  Oops, guess it was a cheat day. 

Also, I am so very excited to order these pillows off of Etsy tonight. 

Both pillows are from the seller, Nena Von, who creates pillows & drapes with fabulous fabrics! LOVE.

I may or may not be obsessed with imperial trellis everything.

Happy Sunday, beauties.
