I am seriously lost for words!

I was really excited to share our news of our sweet little baby, but I had no idea the love and well wishes we would receive! I can’t say thank you enough! We have read every comment, message, e-mail over the weekend and our hearts are so full from y’all. You all are so kind and we are just so incredibly grateful that y’all are celebrating with us!

Onto the clothes!

This is such a good Saturday top.

And what I mean by Saturday top is that it’s easy but you don’t feel like a bum, which is a win in my book!

I’ll be honest, I don’t love dressing up on Saturday. Maybe it’s the old married lady in me or maybe it’s because we dress up all week for work and meetings, but I want to be comfortable as I do married things like go to Costco and hang out with Paul. We like to take naps on Saturday and watch movies but still run errands and meet friends, so this top really allows you to do both! It’s also under $70 and fits true to size, while still being a little loose like a true bell-sleeve top! I love that because you can pair with cut off jeans in the summer and still not feel too “out there.”

Also, let’s talk about an addiction I need to just nip in the bud right now! Blow outs.

I don’t LOVE blow outs. Personally, I like to style my own hair and don’t really trust someone I met 5 minutes ago to know how I like my tresses tamed. I just normally don’t have the best experiences. I either end up looking like Shirley Temple [Who wants that look?! It always bewilders me when they do that.] or with hair stuck to my head. I hadn’t ever gone to the Dry Bar which I know falls in line with being a cardinal sin of a girly girl. But because I’ve never loved blow outs at other dry bar-esque salons I thought, “Why spend the money?”

But then one day I was exhausted after a workout and Paul and I had a dinner date later so I thought, “#TreatYourSelf.”

It was amazing and so then a month later [Tuesday to be exact] I scheduled another. And for a second time I was severely impressed.

So now I have a $40 addiction just as I was starting to enjoy painting my own nails. You cut one habit and find another! This is not going to be okay.

So what are your thoughts on blow outs, bell sleeves and Saturday dressing?!

    Congratulations to you and Paul! That is seriously such exciting news.

    When it comes to blow outs, I’m the opposite, and very much enjoy getting my hair done by someone else. I definitely can’t do my own hair!

    Congratulations Katey! You guys will be great parents, I can tell by all the things you say and do.

    I have a question about this top. It is beautiful but like Nordstrom says, the sizing is strange. I am normally a 4-6 and the sizes go 2-4 or 6-8. Does the fabric have stretch? In the bust area? Would you recommend sizing down or sizing up?

    Thanks! Hope you have a great week!

      Hi Mandy!

      I’m usually a 2-4 and got the small and it’s still pretty big! I think you could definitely do the 2-4! 🙂

    There’s so much to love about this top! Would be great for transitioning my wardrobe into fall! Speaking of fall – your nails are making me want to paint mine black already! I try to wait until fall, but I might have to just get an early start this year 🙂 PS – congratulations on Baby H!!!

    This came up in my email and I thought you were Carrie Underwood. You look great, Katey! Congrats again, so excited for you and Paul in this new season!!
    This is my dilemma every weekend… I want to feel put together and cute, but comfort always wins! Always trying to find ways to have both 🙂

    much love,

    Hi Katey! I was wondering what lipstick you’re wearing in this post! It is the most perfect shade of pink I’ve ever seen! I didn’t see it linked up top! Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi Lindsey!

      Thank you so much! If you go to “Shop The Post” the black widget right under my photos the lipstick and shade are linked! Unfortunately, I think that shade is sold out with Nordstrom, but I would check amazon I bet they would have it!

    You look so pretty! I agree – while I don’t want to look like a bum, I don’t relish the thought of dressing up on Saturdays either. Love your solution!

    I completely agree about the Saturday dressing! It’s all about cute but comfortable for me. My issue is winter when its so cold I just live in sweats all weekend. I have to work on that. The blouse is perfect and I am so happy for you and Paul! I am finally catching up on all of the posts. About blow outs? I LOVE THEM, because I am terrible with doing my own hair.

    Have a great day Katey!
