Trendy Thursday LinkUp: Bodysuits + Jeans

SHOP BODYSUIT HERE

Bodysuits are one of my favorite styles, in fact one that I wear all year long. Express, one of my favorite retailers has a great selection of bodysuits; including the one that I’m sharing today. This one is on sale and under $20. Plus, it has a fun cutout design on the back. So, I wanted to share it along with some other finds in the bodysuit department.

I love bodysuits because they can be worn so many ways, with jeans (like I did here), skirts, shorts, and even trouser. I also love that if it’s a style that buttons at the bottom, you don’t necessarily have to wear it that way, you can simply tuck it in and leave it unbuttoned. I point this out because many people have expressed their dislike for bodysuits because of the button requirement.

My style is mostly casual, especially in the summer. And I couldn’t help but wear this bodysuit with my favorite jeans – which I’m linking for you below. I blindly recommend these because they’re great quality. I have worn them many times to create different looks. To accomplish an absolute laid back and casual look, I kept all accessories to the minimum by wearing dainty pieces. Like the layered necklace look, which is somewhat new to me but I’m loving. I still want to add one more piece to complete it though. The bag you have seen many times before because it’s my summer go-to. 🙂 Now, I’m curious to know your opinion on bodysuits.

Que opinan de los bodysuits? Es un estilo que a mí me encanta.Porque lo puedo reproducir todo el año, ya sea con pantalones jeans, faldas, hasta pantalones de vestir. Y este que comparto hoy es de una de mis tiendas favoritas y está a menos de $20!

La verdad que mi estilo es mayormente casual, aún más durante el verano. Por es decidir lucir el bodysuit con mis pantalones de jeans favoritos. Y tampoco quise utilizar muchos accesorios para este look. Los accesorios que sí no dejo de usar son los collares. Estos me encantan, aunque quiero añadir uno más para siempre llevar tres! Abajo les dejo los enlaces como siempre para que puedan comprar lo que les guste.

Why Brawny Tear-A-Square® is Our Favorite Barbecue Season Essential

This post is sponsored by Brawny® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

It’s officially Barbecue season and I’m turning to Brawny Tear-A-Square® to take on everything from holding our favorite snacks to cleaning up the messes! The new Brawny paper towel is truly a game changer! Now it offers three different size options, so they are perfect to use on clean ups and even as a napkin.

For my family, barbecues are a big deal and they are not just a weekend thing; especially as the weather get warmer. Summer isn’t officially here yet but we have started to spend lots of time outside by the pool. In this Texas heat there’s really no better way to cool off. Since we spend so much time outside, it only makes sense to take advantage and grill our favorites. Plus, this is one of the best ways to get the hubby involved in cooking. 😉

Brawny paper towels have been our barbecue essential lately! It’s just great to have all the different sizes the new Brawny Tear-A-Square offers. And I have even noticed that since using these, my family also seems to make less waste. We have stopped using plates for certain things, like our favorite chips, candies and cookies, these all fit perfectly on the quarter sheet size. This new size also works as a napkin, so there’s no need to buy both paper towels and napkins for barbecues and gatherings.

I plan to keep Brawny Tear-A-Square in use during every event this summer, from our impromptu barbecues to gatherings with friends and family. Having a paper towel that offers strength and flexibility to only use what you need, is a must. As you get ready for all your summer gatherings, keep the new Brawny Tear-A-Square in mind. You can now find it at your local Kroger! And believe me when I say, it will become your favorite barbecue season essential!

Six Different Ways to Wear Shorts this Summer

Shorts are an essential part of my summer wardrobe – especially living in Houston – temperatures as high at 90+ these are really a must. Because I spend a lot of time in these, I like having different options for styling them. Today I’m sharing six ways I like to wear them in the summer, to give you some inspiration when it comes to wearing shorts. 🙂

Shorts + Blouses

A blouse doesn’t always belong to a dressed up look. Sure they look great with trousers and skirts but jeans and jeans shorts are fair game too. In this look, I went for a casual vibe (my usual) wearing them with a blouse with my favorite slide on sandals, neutral handbag and minimal accessories.

Shorts + Sweaters

Of all the ways to wear shorts, I think wearing them with sweaters is one of my favorite. Especially if paired with a lightweight sweater, one that is breathable enough to wear in summer. This look I think is also perfect for beachside and lakeside days. 🙂

Shorts + Tanks

Tanks are so breeze that this pairing is a no-brainer. I especially love ones that have pretty details like ruffles. As for the shorts are so comfortable, I like the baggy fit and fun details like stitching on the sides and the cuff hem. I paired them with wedges – which are a go-to shoe this summer – and a fun clear bag which can also be worn without the insert. 😉

Shorts + Button Down Shirt

Button down shirts are a wardrobe essential on their own. Because I already owned this one, I thought it would be perfect to pair with shorts and use as a cover up while at the pool. If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ll see a few pins on how to style button down shirts in a similar way to this look.

Shorts + T-shirts

Lastly, paired with t-shirts are a combination you can not go wrong with. This is one of the ways I wear them the most, especially to be around the house. Now tell me, what’s your favorite way to style and wear shorts in the summer?

How to Get Ready for the Nordstrom Sale

Are you ready for the biggest sale of the year? I am! So much that I’ve started rounding up a handful of favorites from the Nordstrom Sale to share with you. Before we get to that, here are a few details to keep in min about the sale.

What is the N Sale?

It’s one of the biggest and most popular sales of the year. One that helps lots of shoppers get ready to the season ahead. In order to shop early from July 12- 18, you must be a card holder. Being a cardholder is good for a few reasons:

  • Nordstrom cardmembers shop 7 days before everyone else.
  • You can 3 points per dollar on Nordstrom credit card purchases in stores or online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club.
  •  Points turn into cash back rewards called notes. If you don’t want to get the card, you can also shop the sale on these dates July 19 – August 4.

Keep in mind that the sale ends on August 5, which means that all prices will go back up.

What to Shop for?

I feel that this depends on your style and location. What I do is comb through the endless list of items on sale and bring you a round up of those I think are of great value. Having shopped the sale before, I feel that these categories are the most sought after; sweaters, denim, boots, handbags, outerwear, and accessories. If you keep reading, you will see a sneak peek of my picks in these categories.

How to Shop?

There are a few ways you can shop. 1) You could head to the site as soon as the sale starts at 12:30 ET on July 12 and shop online. 2) You can follow me on LIKEtoKNOW.it where I will be sharing more items from the sale. 3) You can use the Shop the N Sale tab on the drop down menu at the top of the blog. 4) Shop by keeping an eye out on my Instagram posts and Stories.

Where to Stay in Austin and the Only Bag You Need for Traveling

I assume that you are following me on Instagram and if you’re not, you should! Seriously, I share it all there before it makes it to the blog. Like our most recent adventure to Austin. We spent two days at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin! Because traveling is in our DNA, we are always up for a trip, wether it’s near or far. Anything from a weekend getaway to a multi day vacation just helps us reset!

So, we were beyond excited to visit the newly renovated Omni Hotel, especially because it’s within driving distance to Houston. Since summer is in full swing, I thought I’d share our experience with you here in case that you are looking for a getaway too.

The Rooms

Upon arriving at the hotel our experience was great. We were welcome by the staff, who was really friendly and headed in to check in. The front desk staff was just as helpful and made the check in process a breeze. So we made our way up to our rooms within minutes of arriving at the hotel and the first thing we noticed after opening the door was the view! You could oversee most of the resort -from the pool to golf course – and waking up to this view each morning was one of my favorite things. But don’t get me wrong, we love everything else about the room too! The cleanliness, the sitting area by the window and spacious shower just to name a few.

The Spa

The spa was my husband’s favorite experience. We both got to enjoy a massage together, something we had not done before. And because he has back problems from serving in the ARMY, he loved it. It has definitely made a fun memory for us too because weeks later we’re still talking about it. I mean, we’re also parents and being able to relax this way was priceless. The spa felt so inviting and from the moment you walk through the door you feel a sense of relaxation, maybe it the scents and soothing music Whatever it was, it was amazing!

Dinning

The dinning options at the the Omni Barton Creek were above what we expected! Would you believe me if I told you there were a total of SEVEN dining options onsite? There’s no need to venture away from the hotel with so many options. So we decided to do in-room dining for breakfast one day – which was delicious. And tried Bob’s Steak & Chop House – which was recommended by the locals – for dinner another night.

I am already thinking of booking another staycation because of how much we loved straying there. I will make sure to share a bit more if we visit again this summer. In the meantime if you need ideas on what to wear to a staycation like this one, see my last post. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about my weekender and you can shop over at Copper and Brass for one, just make sure to use THIRTYMINUSONE to save 20%. 😉

If you’re in Texas or traveling here soon and looking for a hotel option that offers great amenities, you’ve got to check out the Austin Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa! If you use code THIRTYMINUSONE you’ll receive a $75 resort credit! 😉

Trendy Thursday LinkUp: Trendy Handbags to Get This Summer

Among my favorite accessories are straw bags, these trendy handbags are perfect for summer. While I already have a few in my collection, I wanted to search the web to find some additional options that I could share with you. And I have linked them all below! Some are very affordable starting at just $20. 😉

The one that I’m wearing here I found at T.J. Maxx and have loved wearing it. It goes with just about everything and is so stylish that I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it. My favorite part is that it’s on sale at $20. It brings a strap so that it can be worn as a crossbody.
