Leopard Set from Downtown Allie + Discount Code

Happy Labor Day weekend! I hope you’re getting a chance to relax and spend time with your family.

Today I want to talk to you about one of my favorite local boutiques: Downtown Allie.

Allie and I graduated high school together, so I’ve known her for a long time. She has the sweetest soul, and her shop is so cute.

Each week, she receives new arrivals and does a Facebook Live, showing those items. This allows potential customers to check out her stock, so they have an idea of what’s coming to her store and website.

Another thing I admire about Allie is that she’s a hustler and pursued her dream of opening a store. She started by selling clothes out of the trunk of her vehicle and with the support of customers, now has a successful storefront and website.

I recently picked up this leopard set, and it is so comfortable! One thing I like about sets is that you can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet. Also, if leopard sets aren’t your thing, here are a few more leopard items in her shop.

It’s so important to support small businesses like Downtown Allie because it takes support to remain open, especially in a small town like ours. If you’d like to check out her site, or visit her store, you can use the code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase.

Happy shopping!


The Most Classy Dresses

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love dresses. They’re a one and done outfit, so what’s not to like? There are more styles available today than ever before, and a few months ago, I found a brand that checks every box on my dress dream list: The MW Anywhere Collection.

These dresses are comfortable, mom-friendly, and can be dressed up or down. Over the last few months, I’ve snagged a few when they were on sale.

MW Anywhere Tie Sleeve Dress in Gingham

This gingham one is my absolute favorite! I love the classic print, the tie sleeves, the pockets, and the removable belt. Not to mention, it’s a great length, and at the risk of sounding like Goldilocks, it’s not too long and not too short.

The MW Anywhere Collection also has other styles and lengths, including some that are nursing friendly. Finding dresses that I could nurse in was a challenge when I was going through that stage with Isaac, but these dresses alleviate those issues. I wish I’d had the olive and gray dresses back then.

Right now, The MW Anywhere Collection is having a 50% off sale on all of their summer dresses. This would be a great time to purchase one because I can attest that these are quality pieces suitable for all body types.

Have a great day!


Transitional Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Happy Saturday, ladies! We finally made it to the weekend, and I’m here for it!

The phrase “capsule wardrobe” has gained momentum over the last few years. If you’re unfamiliar with this concept, it’s when a handful of clothing items is mixed and matched in as many ways as possible.

I put together my own 21 piece capsule wardrobe (with items already in my closet) and created 75 outfits using only those pieces. Yes, 75 outfits! Here’s a list of those items:

I took one “focal” piece, such as a dress or a pair of pants, and used everything else to style as many looks as possible. I was honestly surprised on how many different outfits came out of this process!

My goal with this capsule wardrobe was to use pieces that would work now when it’s blazing hot and later as fall arrives. By incorporating jackets, cardigans, and scarves, achieving this was easy.

Additionally, one thing you’ll learn about me is that I like to shop at inexpensive places, particularly Walmart and Amazon. Marshall’s and T.J. Maxx are also great places to look to find name brand clothing (if that’s your thing) for affordable prices.

Also, I’m definitely not telling you to go out and buy everything in my capsule wardrobe because chances are, you already have some of these pieces. “Shopping” in your own closet can produce some valuable finds!

I hope that this post will inspire you to utilize what’s already in your closet. Let me know which look or piece is your favorite.
