Express Memorial Day Sale

TGIF!! We made it through another week and it’s almost the long weekend!

I just HAD to post another Memorial Day sale going on NOW at Express. If you know me at all, or have read OPS for a while now you know I love Express. I shop there all the time and they have the best sales going all the time. They really are an amazing retailer, and no this post is not sponsored I’m just a huge fan!

This is no exception and I wanted to share with you a few things I have gotten recently (as recently as 5 minutes ago!) from their sale along with a few suggested items!

If you didn’t notice I’m loving white this season. I don’t know what it is but something about white just says summer and care free to me. It’s also a blank pallet to have some serious fun with your jewelry and accessories.

They have the most beautiful pieces all on sale right now too so you have to go check it out! If you need any suggestions or have any fashion problems you need help with please leave a comment, email or tweet me and I would love to help you shop!

Happy shopping and have an amazing weekend!

Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Happy Hump day! We are getting close to our long holiday weekend and I can’t wait!

A lot of people go camping, host BBQ’s, or head to the beach (which is on my agenda), but  I love shopping sales (ha!). Who doesn’t like saving money??

Nordstrom’s half yearly sale started today and you can save up to 40% off select styles! There’s a lot to choose from so I thought I’d show you what I’m loving! Above are a few of my picks from the sale. I think an off the should top this summer is essential and I have the lace up Ronny sandals in black and they are so comfortable and easy to wear!

I always like to get something that has been on my wish list, something I need (a basic), and something fun I haven’t tried before. Sales are a great time to try trends you love but aren’t sure are “you” because if it doesn’t work out at least you didn’t pay full price!

On another note, I’ve been sick these past couple days and it came out of nowhere. I mean 0 to hit by a truck in a matter of hours. Bed rest seems to be the only thing that helps so fingers crossed I’m back to 100% for the holiday weekend! (you will also have to excuse the short post, my headache makes looking at a computer screen not so fun #pityparty!)

What are you up to this weekend? Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your week!

Bandana Shift Dress

I’m bad. I am so very bad… I can explain.

Sometimes being a blogger you get into a pinch with your content. This means unless you are Ms. Organized and On-Top-of-It of the year, you are always flying around at 90mph trying to create new and awesome content for your blog baby and amazing readers.

This was one of those days. It’s finally Friday again (#TGIF!) and I took these 2 days ago (which for some bloggers is way in advance but for me who is a wee bit A type, I was loosing my mind ha!) Anyway, I get off work (yes I have a day job) fly home, slap on some makeup, change and run out the door.

This was at the mall closest to where we both live where my friend (and photographer for the day) had been shopping all day for an LA trip she is on as we speak (jelly). So we snap the pics and head to Macy’s to look at the shoes (completely her idea).

I wasn’t even gonna buy anything y’all… I swear. I just needed something from the lingerie department, but you know my love affair with shoes, and then the sales guy comes over and says there’s a preview sale until June 1st (25% off 1 pair, 30% off 2 pairs, and 40% off 3+ pairs) AND he is going to let us take 30% off 1 pair and 40% off 2 or more for a better deal! Austin, if you’re reading this, I love you.

Sooo I got a couple pairs (I’ll link them below) got 40% off and saved over $85!! That’s a win y’all. I am excited. Also she got like 4 pairs so I don’t feel too guilty.. Then with the money we saved we grabbed a celebratory glass of wine (and a Greek salad that was to die for) and that was pretty much the best day of my week so far.

Now on to this look! My mom got me this shift dress maybe 3 years ago and the first time I wore it was for Mother’s Day (thanks mom!). I don’t look good in shift dresses. I’m pear shaped, I don’t have legs that go for miles, and If my waist isn’t defined I look pregnant. She loved it though and I was open minded (I want to look good in shift dresses!) so we got it.

It still isn’t the most flattering dress I own, BUT I love this look because A) it is lined, but the fabric is sheer so you can see a hint of your shape and not completely lose yourself in it B) if you throw on a tailored jacket that fits your body nicely, like I did here, it creates the definition the shift takes away and really balances it out, and C) I probably will wear it as a maternity look when that time comes so it’s versatile at least LOL

Shifts are also super comfortable and airy for summer so you don’t have to worry about melting in it during those 90 degree days (and you can eat as much as you want!). I would definitely recommend getting one for summer, and they are super flattering on most people, you just have to accessorize it to appeal to your body type. And of course, you need a new pair of heels to pair it with (or two)…

On a completely different note, my best friend Catherine started her first 101 in 1001 list yesterday and I realized today marks 1 year since I started my own. If you have no idea what I’m talking about you can check out my list here, I highly recommend it. I also realized I have only crossed off 16 things in a year I need to get crackin! So I’m putting together a Summer Bucket List that I’ll have on the blog soon!

What do you want to do/accomplish this summer?

Thanks for reading (and not judging) haha! Have a great weekend!!

I love slow weekends, soy chai lattes, and easy, comfortable looks. This is a go to easy look for me y’all. I ran down to the Farmer’s Market with a friend of mine and snapped these pics and although it’s laid back and nothing about it is over the top or anything, it’s definitely a go-to for me.

I’m a denim girl. I wear skinnies with tall boots or flats and flare or boot cut jeans with ankle boots multiple times in a week. I love those go to looks that save you from stressing out over what to wear. We’ve all got enough on our plate, we don’t need to feel uncomfortable in what we are wearing.

I think most people are denim people but maybe not skinnies. I’m pear shaped so I used to think I couldn’t wear skinny jeans with flats because it would make my hips look wider than the grand canal. Obviously I got over that insecurity LOL That’s why I love this blouse. It hits at the perfect length and makes any shape more flattering. It also comes in a million different prints, solid colors, and sleeveless!

I hope you don’t mind this quick, easy post! I thought it was fitting for this easy outfit. Have a great day and thanks for reading!

Black & White Skirt

Black & White Skirt One Pot Slop #1

Do you know what the best thing about posting on Friday’s is? I get to have a mini celebration with you guys every week! #TGIF

Another great thing about Friday’s? I have a full time job outside of blogging and in the summers we don’t work Friday’s! Long weekend every weekend! It makes summer so much more enjoyable to have an extra day to run errands, go to the beach, go on a road trip and still have time for some down time. As for me that means more beach time and an extra date night! I. can’t. wait!

I also tend to dress up more on the weekends. My office is super casual and dressing how I usually would (like you see on OPS) is kind of a mute point. This isn’t just because of the laid back environment, but I’m afflicted with that fear of wasting the perfect outfit on an uneventful day. This is why I save my best and most favorite looks for the weekends and when I know I’m going to be out.

This skirt is one of those items I would save. First off, I know it’s not exactly risque but if a skirt or dress doesn’t hit me just above the knee I just don’t feel comfortable wearing it to work. This is also a very structured skirt and the pleats would smoosh weird if I was sitting at my desk all day, thus a weekend/date night skirt. It it super flattering though and the cut hides any tummy bump you might have going on. Add a billowy top (or crop top which is actually my preferred way to style) and you’re set.

Have a great weekend guys! If you want to know what I’m up to on my day-to-day follow me on Snapchat @onepotslop!
