Life Lately

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

This filter tho!  Why can't I look like this in real life?! :)  Follow "simplylulustyle" on Snapchat for our family adventures and daily life.

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

Chicken, caramelized onions, mozzarella cheese, cherry tomatoes (from my mom's garden) with balsamic glaze Naan bread grilled pizza.  Yum :)

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

Saturday we spent some wonderful family time together at McConnell Mills State park.  It was a glorious day, low 80's and no humidity.  Perfection.  Kids loved the falls, trails and covered bridge.  We'll definitely be back again this fall.

-------OUTFIT DETAILS-------

We've had a tough 8 months in our family.  But through it all I am confident that my Savior is taking care of us.  He created us, loves us unconditionally, gave His Son for us - who is more qualified to conduct my life and who better to put my life in His hands.

Happy Monday friends, make it a beautiful day!

Happy Sunday friends!  We had the most gorgeous weekend here.  I had planned to go into the city but forgot my husband was working overnight Saturday into Sunday (in the city).  He had a big recovery test and was super stressed.  So instead of going into the city in the morning and then back again at night, we decided to go to a great state park called McConnell Mills.  It's beautiful.  There is a covered bridge, a damn, and rapids with enormous rocks!  You might be able to catch some on Snapchat (simplylulustyle) and Instagram.  I'll be sharing some pictures this week on the blog.

I wanted to wrap up the week and the fabulous #NSale today.  It's the last day folks :(  We must wait another year, for another great sale.  BUT it's not too late to get some amazing pieces.  I posted more favorites yesterday - there are a lot of goodies left!

Have a wonderful Sunday.  Enjoy the day with family and friends.

Happy Friday Eve! :)  I love a good bell sleeve and this top is beautiful from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Aren't these earring so pretty?  They can dress up a great tee or be the added touch to a beautiful dress for date night.   And I have to say I've had these Kate Spade heels for a while and they are by far one of my most favorite and comfortable pair of heels.  The nude color will keep these a classic shoe for years to come.

I'm looking forward to this weekend.  It is supposed to be beautiful here and we'll be heading into the city for a look around.  It's been a long time since I've been there and I'm really excited!  You can check it out on Snapchat - simplylulustyle

Have a wonderful day.  Thank you for stopping by!

#NSale Purchases

Today I'm sharing my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases!  I didn't buy as much as I normally do as we've been really focused on our house search.  A lot of what I typically purchase are things for fall/winter.  So they are not something I can wear right now in the dead of summer! :)

Nonetheless I wanted to show you the pieces that made it into my closet.  I have more wonderful pieces in my #NSale Boutique, click below!

Have you made any purchases?  Happy Wednesday friends.  Thanks for reading today.

Olive & Life Lately

Why hello Monday...  I can't believe it's August!  This week, in Pittsburgh, it's supposed to be gorgeous!  I'm excited to do some fun things with the nuggets around the area.  We joined a local waterpark and we were there a lot last week since it was 90+ degrees - yikes!  You can always follow along on Snapchat, simplylulustyle.

I've also been super busy looking for a house.  It's been very frustrating and I haven't really posted anything on it because... well... it hasn't been much fun :(  poo.  We are working on what to do.  School starts here in about 4 weeks, so time is not on our side.  We are looking at houses in two different school districts, one is particularly my favorite.  It's rated #2 in the state and has a large area to look for a house.  But?!  The market right now is not great, not a lot on the market (in our price range) and sooo many places are overpriced.  I'm talking fifty thousand plus overpriced!  It has not been fun to say the least.  So that has been my priority and I really haven't had a lot of time to blog post.  But this week I have a few outfits for you :)

I'm about a month late in posting this shirt (which I love).  Olive isn't really a favorite color of mine, but when I saw this top I really loved it.  It's currently on sale and J.Crew has this style in a dress too which is super cute.  These are my favorite summer jeans.  Right now when the weather is so hot wearing jeans is not really an option.  But these have such a great stretch to them and the distressing is awesome.  I bought these lace ups in the #NSale and they are SO comfortable.  This snow leopard print is sold out, but there are many other options.  The one thing I love about them is the tie is slightly stretchy, so it's comfortable when you walk and not too tight around your ankle.  Bonus!  They run a 1/2 size small, I'm typically a 7 US and I am wearing a 7.5 US which is perfect.

It's the last week of the #NSale!  Click below to see more of my favorite picks :)

Today the nuggets and I are going to see yet another house, then a picnic and bike ride.  Follow along on Snapchat: simplylulustyle.  I hope you have a beautiful day friends.

Burberry Bag

-------OUTFIT DETAILS------

Burberry bags  ||  chambray shirts  ||  cropped pants ||  jeans  ||  flats  ||  heels  ||  sunnies  ||  earrings  ||  accessories

I love this Burberry bag.  It's perfect to go from your professional work week to your casual weekends.  The signature Burberry plaid is of course beautiful and I love drawing out the pop of red in the professional outfit.  The double strap is great makes it so versatile to carry by hand, on the shoulder, or a crossbody bag.  It's the total 3-in-one package!  I also included in this style board chambray from professional to casual.  It's one of my favorite go-to styles and I think I have about 5 chambray shirts!  But aren't these so cute?  I love the detail of both.  The bow tie on the professional outfit and the "lace up" on the casual outfit.  There are so many ways to style a chambray and that is why it's a closet staple for me.  

Which is your favorite style?  The professional or casual outfit?

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend!
