Hi everyone! I hope your week is going well, my boys went back to school yesterday so it’s been a big week here, not to mention trying to return to real-life after having such a great time with Christy last weekend!

Today I wanted to pop in with a few things to share.  If you have a college bound student currently or will in the near future, you should check out my post on Mohawk Creative Home about small space decorating. Even if your kids aren’t at that age, the post is full of organizational tips you might find helpful. You can read it HERE. Christy also shared a post this summer with her best Tips & Tricks for Preparing Your Home for Summer Vacation.

I woke up today and saw that Loft is having a 50% off sale, plus FREE shipping. I love shopping at Loft, but I often drag my feet about purchasing just one or two items online because they charge you $8.95 for shipping. I quickly placed an order for these pants at half off {I have heard other bloggers raving about how soft they are, plus they are a great alternative to shorts in the still hot early fall} and then had to browse the sale section for the best deals–I ordered these leggings which totaled only $5 {win! Can’t have too many leggings 🙂 } and this sweater, again it’s perfect for ‘transitional’ fall weather.


Here are a few other favorites, and be sure to browse the sale section because the 50% off is on top of what is already discounted, so the deals are really good. I love wearing lightweight sweaters in early Fall, and they have some pretty ones, my favorites are below. Be sure to use the code SURPRISE for the discount and free shipping.

They also have good prices on pants {when I worked full-time Loft was my go-to for work pants} and some cute summer sweaters, these are great for those of you who live in warmer areas.

Now that we’ve covered the important shopping stuff, here are a few other things. We’re getting ready for our annual Operation: Organization Back to School series but we’re doing it a bit differently this year. We’re teaming up with a group of bloggers to each share a “day in our lives”, chronicling the systems we each use to make our days flow smoothly, especially in the chaos of back to school. That will kick off on August 28th, so stay tuned for more on that!


{Order Pink + Gold version HERE}

Finally, if you are also in the back to school season, you might be interested in our printable Student Planner.  If you have a student that struggles with organization, remembering to bring assignments home or keeping track of their schedule {insert my raised hand here!} this printable package is designed to help. I developed this product to help my own kids succeed in managing their schedule and school work. You can read all about why I developed this product and learn more here or head to my online store to order. There is both a girly {pink + gold version} or a neutral blue + green version to select from.

Hope you have a great day!

Easy Summer Appetizers

I love to entertain, but in the summer, especially, I like to keep things casual and easy.  When it's so hot outside, I'd rather not turn on the oven if I can avoid it!
