GUYS, I bought a vintage, summer hat the other weekend and ever since I’ve been dreaming about how to wear it. How many outfits can I get away with wearing it with? Denim? Linen? Silk? Anything seems possible with a straw hat (now that I mentioned silk – that sounds AMAZING). I’m so thrilled. It’s throwing me back to ACL days where I borrowed a straw hat from my friend Brenda and let her pin it into my thick hair, trusting her to make me look like a pixie dream girl. Well, straw hat, I’m back.
I got this particular baby from Merch and Market, the coolest little place off Westheimer near Montrose. I took a selfie in it (of course) and then plucked up the courage to ask how much it was, even though I was pretty sure it was $100+! Turned out it was only $35, so I took that as a sign that it belonged on my hat wall. I put it on while wearing my yellow rainboots and BAM — a match made in heaven.
I bought this jumpsuit at Emerson Rose literally yesterday (eeee!) and am SO happy I did. It’s so comfy and light — perfect for Houston summer. Also, not very expensive! I’m going to wear it every day with different shoes (and my summer hat) and not give AF about anything else. That’s my fav kinda fashion. Are we into it? Lemme know. 😉
Happy Friday, all! If you’re interested — check out my Houston weekend guide, and get busy this weekend! Getting out and doing fun things in town is my FAV and I want you all to join! So get in on the action and click HERE, and have all the fun this weekend! Also, get a summer hat. I promise you’ll love it.
Y’all know I love me some Outdoor Voices stuff – see me run around in it here. So when I got a 20$ Outdoor Voices discount email this morning I ran to the website to see what’s new and there’s a LOT of new! I’m really loving their biker shorts that I got in their Spring Cleaning Sale (see link below) and am anxiously waiting for them to appear on my doorstep.
The Trail Jacket in Pebbled Rose is so gorgeous. Ughhhh anything with pink sign me up. I’m sad that I bought a windbreaker recently because I can’t justify buying another one so soon. But maybe one day. I’m also in love with anything cropped these days – and loving this green top! Also – this entire white number needs to be in my closet when I’m not hurting for moola. SO good.
Did I also mention their cacti collection – the greens are gorgeous shades and perfect for spring/summer. When this came out I almost died because how perfect is it to have a workout collection in cactus shades! Killin’ it.
Check out their spring cleaning sale here where you can get 30% off with the code SPRINGCLEANING, or click here to get $20 off your first purchase at OV!
It’s Friday! Which means it’s time for an UNBOXING!
Wouldn’t it be nice to unbox presents every Friday? This week on Abbey’s Unboxing Blog is the FabFitFun Box! I have seen these around on social media and clicked the link multiple times in the past 6 months but never pulled the trigger until a few weeks ago. Thank goodness I did because I needed it so badly this week that I almost hugged my mailman for bringing me prezzies.
The FabFitFun box is a subscription that you pay for basically every season (I got the Spring box) and it’s 50$ a box. This is something I’ll probably only splurge on once or twice a year because I’m feelin’ pooooor AF right now. But if you can swing it you get a lot of bang for your buck in this box! The retail value of what’s inside is $200+ and it’s full of beauty, wellness, fashion, and fitness items handpicked by the FFF team.
So let’s get into what was inside mine, shall we? OR just be surprised and go get one here!
The first thing I noticed when delving inside was a round beach blanket! So off the bat I was super psyched because I’ve wanted one since these became trendy a year or two ago, but never could bite the bullet and splurge on one. I mean do I REALLY need a round beach blanket when I already have rectangular ones? Well, now I have one! Foreseeing a lot of park and beach days in my future. The second thing I was excited about was the dr. brandt microdermabrasion because as you know if you’ve been reading my blog- I am super into skincare at the moment and making my face look as clean as possible (that first pic is with no makeup on- THANK YOU PIXI). I also got some Karuna cloth face masks which look awesome (4 in a pack) and I can’t wait to try them.
The Real Her (Women Rule the World) lipstick pack comes with a lipgloss, lipstick, and lipliner. The packaging is flawless – I’m obsessed. But not sure I’m going to love the lipstick – I dabbed it on to try upon opening it and was not thrilled by the drying feel. I do want to try the gloss and lipliner though, so maybe a review is in my blog’s future.
Other notable items are the Deborah Lippman nail polishes (I got a baby pink and a white), some gummies to strengthen hair, nails, and skin, and a leave-in-conditioner! I also received earrings that I’ll be re-gifting because I don’t have my ears pierced! But so many well-rounded items! To wrap it all up they gave me a Slay All Day pouch. Into it. This box was like ipsy on steroids and I want more (but going to hold back cuz I’m responsible).
