Welcome to the Valentines Day/Presidents Day long weekend, yall! While you may or may not be off on Monday, theres still lots to celebrate when a long weekend comes right on the tail of Valentines Day, amirite?
Im Hitting the Road
Im headed out on a quick overnight road trip to Houston next week to speak to a group on Preparing For the Empty Nest. I love doing that! Well be talking about how to get your kids ready to leave the nest and the best way to get yourself prepared for that transition as well. Interested in having me come and speak to your group? Browse my most-requested topics HERE and email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to talk details.
Next week, Ill be getting underway with my 2020 Spring & Summer style guides! Ive been working hard on them, and Im excited about the pretty and flattering trends I see for warmer weather! I gave you a little sneak peek at some of the trends in last weekends Whats Up, Weekend post and here are a few more:
- The espadrille is back! Look for a marriage of last years hot flatform sandals and the traditional espadrille to produce some of the cutest summer sandals Ive seen in a long time.
- When it comes to handbags, look for darling straw taco clutches and bucket bags to be the hot looks.
- Love earrings? Stock up on fan styles, and anything multi-colored.
This Weeks Best-Seller
Its always fun for me to see what you all loved from the past week, and tracking that helps me know what kind of content youre enjoying here on Empty Nest Blessed! There were two this week!
These adorable snakeskin print booties were one of my favorite fall finds, and Ive worn them on repeat! They fit TTS, and the flexible sole and block heel make them oh-so walkable and wearable. (I love finding on-point styles that work for my midlife feet! ) These just went 25% off, and theyre still available in every size with free shipping and returns. Theyve already been restocked a couple of times, and I know theyll sell fast now that theyve been discounted, so Id get em now if you want em!
These pretty floral press candles were also a big hit this week, and I know why! Theyre well priced, make great gifts, and theyre unique! #lovethat
How fun is this heart sweatshirt! Its a non-traditional Valentines Day look, for sure! In fact, its so non-traditional, Ill be wearing it all year round, thank you very much! It fits TTS. The wedge sneakers were a real find at Target this fall, and I love the way the little wedge inside them make me stand up straighter when I wear them. (Plus I feel kind of street! ) They fit TTS.
Best Weekend Sales
Brands love an excuse like a long weekend to put things on big-time sale, and this weekend is no different! This time of year, brands are clearing out the tail end of their winter merchandise and showcasing their spring styles in earnest. That means youll see lots of deals on wear-now winter styles. If you see sales on new, spring merchandise (i.e., sitewide sales or sales on full-price styles), those are worth checking out, so Ive highlighted them in red for you.
