While I hate running across them this summer, they are quite the fashion influencers…Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images
This post is a specific shout-out to my Texas girl, E.King! I hope you are reading this! But also, to all my Southern, sweet-tea loving friends–is this not THE. CUTEST. SHIRT. you have ever seen? I want to buy every single one of these long-sleeve plaid tops with every Southern saying that they make. I found this “Bless Your Heart” version for $40 at a booth during CMA Fest in Nashville, and fan-girled all over the shop owner – one Casey Burcalow of Gemini Gypsy. While Burcalow is working on her website, you can follow her “happy boho hippie wear” on Instagram – @geminigypsytx, and DM her an order. I certainly plan to, y’all!
Though we all love new clothes, how about celebrate Earth Day by making a little change? Buy a resale dress, shop your closet, look at Pinterest to see how to style clothes you already own. Try Rent the Runway and rent a dress for an upcoming event. Our obsession with new and cheap fashion, if left unchecked, may ultimately lead to our planet’s demise. Buy used when you can. And buy new, if you really want to, but maybe think a little bit before you do.
Some Tucson stores to try: POSH Boutique; Buffalo Exchange, Green Monkey Boutique and Girlfriends Closet.
I went to Costco looking for stadium chairs today, but found these stylish items instead. The T3 Featherweight hair dryer retails for $200, so the $79 price tag is a nice deal! Those who’ve known me a long time know that hair dryers hate me. One of my last ones tried to kill me with an errant spark. So, I’m looking forward to trying this well-reviewed model.
And just as stores want you to shop for Christmas in September, they likewise request that you browse through heavy coat offerings when it’s currently 100 degrees in the desert. DKNY is offering this black down jacket at Costco right now for $39.99. It’s pretty posh, and it also comes in a maroon version for fans of Salpointe and the school up north, which I will not name.
And, you can also stock up on Christmas ribbon….
