Hi friends! Can you believe we’re in September finally?!?! It felt like it would never get here, 2020 has been a million months long! Since my kids will be going back to school this month, it really feels like the first fresh start I’ve had in awhile. And I love a new beginning!
I’m so pumped to start our free 30-day fitness challenge today! I hope you are too! I know it takes time to see results, but consistency is the key, and if you stick with it, you WILL see changes! It typically takes me two weeks to start really feeling better and six weeks seems to be a sweet spot for starting to look really good!
Just remember, the time is gonna pass anyway!
Today, I’m recapping August and it’s always fun to look back and catch the highlights if you missed it!
It was super fun to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with Ali-Shaun and Tarah this year and I hope my posts were helpful to you in weeding through all.the.things!
My favorites in the sale always include the boots and booties and I was happy with the new styles I scored this year.
Mix & Match Outfits
I love styling pieces different ways and showing you how you can make the most of your wardrobe. With these posts, I could go on and on!
What Ali-Shaun Bought
One of your favorite posts this month was what Ali-Shaun bought during the NSale. She works a corporate job and wanted pieces she could wear at work and on the weekend. She did a great job getting things that would last and in this post, she shared some different ways she incorporated these pieces into outfits, with what she already had in her closet.
NORDSTROM VS. AMAZON LOOKS FOR LESS
This was another post y’all loved! I DO pay attention to your feedback, so THANK YOU! ♥
I compared popular Nordstrom items to those on Amazon and found so many similar things for less! It took a really long time, but I think it’s worth it!

Amazon Top Sellers
I do two Amazon fashion posts a month, usually every other Friday, catch August’s posts here & here. You can also shop my Amazon Storefront, with all my recommendations and orders, broken down by category.
TOP 10 AMAZON FOR 2020
I also looked back to see what YOUR top Amazon picks this year have been so far.
Crop Wide Leg Pants (I cannot say enough great things about these. They simply pull on without any zipper or button (so sleek!) and they feel amazing on, being nice and thick.)
Skinny Belts (4 pack) (probably my most worn accessory, looks great with jeans and over dresses)
HATS are big this year : Sun Hat (still a fave after several years) • Sun Visor ( you can let your cute top knot poke through the top and I love the major sun protection with the wide brim) • Ponytail Hat (we all love the ease of this handy hat)
Fake Bake (I haven’t used this in awhile, but applied it yesterday and now I remember why I love it! I feel so much better with a little color and this one looks the most natural without any orange color! It’s also so easy to apply with the mitt).
Tank Fit: I’m wearing an XS
Leggings Fit: I’m wearing an XS
GET THESE LEGGINGS! You guys, honestly this is the most comfortable pair of high waisted joggers I have ever tried on! I think what makes them so comfortable is that the high waist part is on the thin side so you don’t feel constricted at all, but they still keep you tucked in. No wonder they have over 6,300 positive reviews!
The seeming is particularly flattering and there are side pockets that you could fit a phone or your keys in.
I’m also crazy for the camo style but they come in other colors as well.
I don’t know about you, but Amazon is just so dang convenient for all the home and household items too! I find it so much easier than running to the store, especially right now and the last 6 months when the kids were home all the time. They hate running those errands with me, so Amazon PRIME is so much easier!

House Painting Update
My favorite painter of all time, Ruben, came back with his crew and it only took three days to power wash and paint the entire exterior of the house. I’m loving the result so far, but I’m still waiting on Mr. Limewash to come back and do samples so I can see how that would look.
Here’s the after:
