Best Labor Day 2019 Sale Picks for Fall

Hey y’all! There are so many good Labor Day Sales happening right now! I want to break this post down and share items I believe are worth your money and worth buying during this sale. I know it can be hard with so many Labor Day Sale picks out there but I’ll break it down by retailer and this post also includes home decor! This is a great time to stock up for Fall items. When shopping for fall and winter, pay attention to the fabric make up. Look for high percentages of wool, merino wool or cashmere. Acrylic is another good option that’s more affordable. These fabrics are the best for keeping you warm without being bulky.

Petite Workwear with LOFT for Late Summer into Fall

Being petite I know what a struggle it can be to find clothes fitting properly. While I do not mind paying a tailor to alter clothing, it is so nice to find a brand that’s size-inclusive. LOFT has a huge selection of petite and plus-size clothing and it’s so nice to be able to pull clothes right out of the bag and they fit perfectly. Petite workwear isn’t always easy but LOFT makes it effortless. In addition to their wide-range of sizing, LOFT’s pieces are so versatile. You can wear them to work, on weekends and re-style them so many ways so you really get your bang for your buck. I look to buy colors I know will mix and match with a lot of what’s in my closet or buy a few pieces that’ll go together. When it comes to sizing, I always order Petite XXS or Petite 00. For reference, I’m 5’3 and LOFT’s length when it comes to dresses, skirts and pants are always on point.

Easy, Affordable Table Setting for our Small Dining Room

We are a few months into our completed small dining room and still loving it. While I have nice plates for when family and friends come over, we made a quick decision to use something lighter and more affordable for every day. From afar, this affordable table setting looks more expensive than it is. The colors are nice and with pretty “jewelry” aka our gold flatware, it looks very pulled together. I love being able to mix and match high-end and affordable pieces. Our affordable table setting may cost less than $1 but combined with our custom velvet dining chairs from Interior Define, which is currently doing a 15% off sale, more on that below, and marble dining table everything looks seamless.

Affordable Home Decor

I still pinch myself this is the bathroom I get ready in every day. I’m very lucky it’s so bright and airy. However, a lot of the touches really making the space are not expensive and they do not have to be. I want to share some affordable home decor with y’all in this post. Decor can be a little tricky so I want to share a few things I always do when I choose decor and put together a space. Since we live in an apartment, we don’t get to choose everything. We are super fortunate ours came with gorgeous hardware. However, building upon that is key.

How to Find “Hidden” Time for What You Love

As I mentioned a few months ago, I’m getting back into figure skating and taking it more seriously. Johnny and I have taken time out of our busy schedules to make it to the ice rink and practice for at least an hour every time. I’m not going to lie, it’s not easy. Between work, family time and caring for my Dad who has a traumatic brain injury, finding “hidden” time is extremely tricky. Many of us have been asked the question, “If you had an extra hour a day, how would you spend it?” For me, without a doubt, the answer would be figure skating.

In this post, I’m going to share three steps you can take to find hidden time for what you love. You can use this time to pursue a hobby, learn a new skill, spend it talking to your parents if you live far away from them… the possibilities are endless!
