The Sunday Skim – Winter 2019 – Forty Eight

Welcome to the Sunday Skim! Your weekly recap of all things style, home, entertaining, family, midlife, community and shopping!

What’s Been Happening. Big. Busy. Week. Justin was gone most of the week so shuffling schedules is always interesting. Soccer started, Peyton got the baby in the king cake (had to get one for his class), meeting with my LA Blogger girls in NOLA and One Hundred Day at school. Finished up with week with the Sequin Secondline in NOLA yesterday.

Style. When I am shopping I always see colored boots on sale. I think people pass them by for a few reasons. One, its not versatile so they would rather spend money on a shoe that will get more wear. Two, they don’t know how they will work it into their existing wardrobe.

With a little planning you can make a colored boot work into your closet and also make it a staple. I am doing three looks with a red boot today to get you excited about what to wear. Bonus is you may be able to scoop up a pair on sale too!

Home. If you have been looking for an excuse to update your space this may be the time. Target is having their home sale this week and things will be up to 25% off.

Entertaining. These are really cute if you are looking for something to make for a Mardi Gras party.

Family. I spent some time this week updating my Bringing Kids to Mardi Gras post. I feel like each year I learn a little more of how to do it successfully. Check it out here.

Midlife. Over the last few years my balance has really started to go. I don’t know if it has to do with getting older or what but when I wear heels or anything like that I have zero confidence that I am not going to trip or fall. Barre has really been helping me get some of my balance back. I also came across these yoga poses that I am going to start incorporating into my morning routine.

Community. They All Ask’d For You! The Dames of Perlage will be hosting a second line through the Audubon Zoo on February 17th. The Dames have beautiful, intricate costumes that are all hand beaded and this year their theme is the zoo! Check out the event here.

Shopping. Nordstrom has a sale going on currently that includes lots of fun coats. I know we are getting near the end of winter but if you wanted to invest in a nice coat for next year now would be the time to grab it. Most items are 40% off but some even go up to 50% off. Check out the sale here.
