As if Mondays are not bad enough already, today is rainy and cold and marks the end of spring break for my son who heads back to college this evening. Although I have made great strides in becoming more used to this whole college experience, I still have trouble when he walks out the door.  Frankly, I will never get used to the separation and I dread the day that I will be an empty nester once his siblings head off to college and out the door as well.  I joke that I should ‘adopt’ a pre-schooler and follow that child and his/her parents along throughout the school years just so that I can have the experience of doing it again because i love those early years so much. My favorite time is pregnancy through kindergarten, such a magical time. I really should have started having children earlier in life so that I could have had a larger family, however, my husband would argue that children is definitely more than enough regardless of when we got started having them!
On a different note, if you have some time today you should definitely check out the awesome 50% everything sale at LOFT.  I am definitely going to pick up that adorable swing top which comes to less than $23 after the discount and that boho-insprired lace top–so feminine and airy–is $25 after the discount has been applied.  Too many options to list so be sure to check it out.  A great way to brighten your Monday!

11 Under $20
Oh my gosh, is it Monday already?  I swear Starbucks should come up with a size larger than venti for Monday mornings–and any other time when you need BIG amounts of coffee to cope with life.  Plus, Mondays during the winter are the worst especially when there is yet another snowstorm on the way.  Yuck.  I am so done–notice the allusion I just made to the tee shirt above?  I so need that tee from Forever 21 and I know it would be on wardrobe repeat for me! You really have to check out their new arrivals as you can expand your wardrobe without needing to expand your budget to boot.  I just love that crocheted top and I can see myself wearing it under a fitted blazer for work and then alone with some skinnies and heels for a casual date night.  Can you believe all the items shown above are less than $20? Happy Monday!
Weekend Wear
Happy weekend, everyone!  Boy, this was a long and not fun week for me so I am hoping this weekend offers an opportunity for me to mentally reset and prep for next week–maybe even get in a little quality retail therapy that I so need.  I must admit that dealing with the super cold days of winter has made me somewhat lazy in my daily wardrobe choices.  Yoga pants?  Don’t mind if I do.  However, with spring in the offing and my sons’ lacrosse season almost underway, I had better rethink some of my outfit choices so as not to embarrass the boys–and myself–once I no longer can hide under my long down coat. This weekend, Old Navy is running a great sale to get started on buying lots of stylish pieces perfect for wearing on a weekend trip, after work or to that lacrosse field!  Be sure to stop by or shop online to receive 40% off with the code STYLE (cardholders only) or 30% 0ff code STYLE (everyone).  Have fun!
