Tried and True…

Happy Hump Day guys! How’s your week been so far? K, call this combo tired and overdone (as in you just posted an outfit that looks almost identical to this Shannon – cool.) – I don’t even currrrrrrrr! I love me a tried and true classic, and black and red for Valentine’s Day is just that. So here it is again! Mostly I just really wanted to show off this amaaaaazing coat that I recently got from Ruche. I didn’t have a ‘formal’ looking coat in my closet, and this one was just too fabulous to pass up. I have to tell you though guys – I wish I would have been wearing these heels with this outfit. That was the intention, and then like an idiot I forgot to bring them to the photo shoot. Dummmmmm! Sad day in the USA. Don’t get me wrong – I love these Chinese Laundry beauts too {also worn here}, but the Betsy Johnsons? I mean, does it get any better than that?

Side note: I may or may not have recently purchased these, and hey, I’m just gonna tell you – they are even more amazing in person. A bit of a splurge, but hashtag worth it! Oh, and another recent purchase (I’ve been out of control lately) – these – are 25% off right now. Woot!

So, what are YOU wearing for Valentine’s Day this year?

You better believe that under that flirty little dress there is the most hard-core, we-mean-business pair of Spanks my money could buy. I’m not trying to fool anybody – these days that tummy needs a little help from its friends. #realtalkbaby

On the Hunt for…

February 4, 2015

So being the Coveting Courtney that I am, I always maintain a running list of things that I’m ‘on the hunt for’. I fled long ago from the approach of showing up to a store or a mall with cash in hand, just looking for cute things to buy. Instead, I take note of things that I want/need as I realize what they are, and then I just keep my eyes peeled and pull the trigger when I find the perfect version of that thing (and ideally when it’s on sale or I can get some type of discount). It’s been a pretty winning strategy, I must say! Anywhooo, I thought I’d share with you guys what I’m currently on the hunt for. Oh, and at the bottom of the post are some items that I had been hunting for and found recently. Woot!

So, I wanna know: Do you guys do this too? Do you keep a running wish list? Please tell me I’m not alone in my Lusting Leslie ways!

The perfect striped top:


Perfect distressed jeans in black, white and denim blue:


Simple but awesome gold bangles:


Recent Finds:

K guys – so husband recently got a new job and he has started traveling. Kind of a lot. And it suuuuuuucks. Apparently retail therapy is my coping mechanism. Oops? Here are some my recent acquisitions that I feel pretty darn excited about. Don’t worry that 80% of them are shoes. (#shoeobsessed #favoritethingtobuy #itsbecomingaproblem #ishouldstopusinghashtagsinblogposts)


One last thing: Shopbop is having a mega sale right now. If you’re a person who insists on scoring designer duds at a discount instead of paying full price (ahem, ME), then this is a great opportunity. You can shop the sale HERE!


Happy Hump Day!

This blazer and these heels make me feel like 15% edgy, and I don’t even hate it. Probs not the kind of outfit that makes sense to be photographing in front of the grassy rolling hills behind our house, buuuuuuut the more appropriate city setting was too far away for this lazy gal. Soooo here we are. Confession: I got this blazer from Oasap a while back in the early stages of my pregnancy, and when it arrived, you better believe that bad boy did not fit. Those faux leather sleeves were brutal! Not forgiving in the slightest. I was a Sad Samantha. So you are witnessing one of the first times I have ever worn this baby. Woot! When it finally fit, I was stoked because I actually kind of love this blazer.

Hope you’re having a great week! As a completely random side note: I’ve been posting some pritttttty cute pics of my baby boy on Insta lately. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, you should. Just sayin’. Happy Tuesday!
