Happy Friday, everyone! What a week it’s been for me! I experienced the joys and stress of my daughter having her first baby (via c-section)! The baby is here, and we are all over the moon in love! Unless you have been around newborns recently, you forget how tiny they are. Anyway, we can’t wait for them to get home today so we can go and stare at that little heaven-sent angel!

One of my favorite ways to calm down after a busy or stressful time is a little shopping trip with one of my very best friends, So Heather, to our favorite store, Neiman Marcus (because it’s always a good idea!). Heather is truly my favorite person to shop with. We love the same things, and I can always count on her to make a trip to Neiman Marcus with me. One great perk of living in Dallas is being able to shop at the “mother” store in downtown Dallas! I have shopped in this exact store for years and even worked in the gloves and scarf department when I was in college.

Heather and I both needed a little break (retail therapy!), so we headed downtown to shop for shoes (and we might have made it to another floor, too!). Neiman Marcus always has the best and most current shoes, and we wanted to check out what is coming in for pre-fall. I went straight (like a moth to a flame) to the green satin Manolo Blahnik sandals. I think the color is so gorgeous, and I love the crystal buckle. These shoes are a party on your feet even when you are dressed in jeans!

I had just ordered the Kate Spade sandals I am wearing a week before. Guys, these are so fun in leopard print raffia and are the perfect summer sandal that will take you into fall. They are super comfortable, and the price point is great! I love the sandals Heather is wearing too! It’s not too early to start thinking about fall and boots. The combat style is still going strong, and I had a small fit over this pair. How much fun would these be with a flowy dress? I also love this sleek pair of boots in white. We also saw that sneakers are going nowhere fast (thank goodness), and I am a huge fan of Golden Goose. I have around five pairs that I rotate. They are so comfortable and are super cool. I don’t have a dark pair and love this pair now and for darker jeans in the fall.

I always can find my favorite designers at Neiman Marcus, like Veronica Beard, Cinq a Sept, Alice and Olivia, and I could go on and on. My blazer is the Veronica Beard scuba fabric that is such a classic. I have it in black as well. I also love this silk tank from Cinq a Sept that I can wear year-round. Heather and I love blazers and jeans, and besides shoes, it’s pretty much what we always shop for. I bought this pair of denim and am so obsessed with them that I have been wearing them constantly.






Do you all have a favorite shopping buddy, or do you like to do it solo? Heather and I have so much fun together, and as I said before, we love the same things; however, she loves desserts way more than I do! Anytime we go anywhere, she has to have a bite of something sweet (and I want to bitch slap her because she looks like she does!). We took a break at the NM cafe for a quick drink before more shopping, and look who got a cookie? Look who snuck a bite?!

I cannot wait for my girl to get home today. I hope she sleeps all weekend and lets me hold that little baby. As you know, we didn’t know the gender (we, of course, do now), and I would tell, but mama wants to announce first. All I can tell you is it is one gorgeous and perfect baby!  Life is sweet!

I hope you have a great weekend! Stay safe and be well! xx
