Vacation Wants

Psst…this post contains affiliate links. Since winter was such a dud in Austin this year and temperatures are already more than spring-like, I’ve moved on to summer vacation and counting down the days (96 to be exact) until our upcoming family trip to Tulum in June. I know the cool kids are on to other destinations, but Tulum is still…

Target Swim 2016

This post is sponsored by Target. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that make Oh Hey possible. I was a bit of an early bloomer and remember feeling self-conscious shopping for a swimsuit as early as 4th grade. When other girls were getting their first itsy-bitsy-teeny-weeny yellow polka dot bikinis, I was looking for a one-piece bathing suit that minimized…

Special Occasions

Happy New Year! Did you have a wonderful holiday? I love seeing everyone all dressed up for family gatherings and Nutcracker performances and Netflix binges every December. My family is always presentable, but we do favor the casual and I sometimes wish we’d take advantage of the occasion to dress things up a bit more (as I type this wearing…

Viva la Poncho

Pssst…this post contains affiliate links. A few weeks back, I had some errands to run on a Saturday afternoon. It was the first cold-ish day of the season, so I threw on leggings on a poncho and left the house feeling pretty darn good about myself. On one of my stops, I was talking with a woman when the topic…

Everyone wants a pair of Loeffler Randall lace up flats. I get it. I want a pair, too. I just can’t spend $295. So I snapped up these Old Navy lace up flats in every color (including a fun mustard suede) on sale for $25. They are surprisingly comfortable and if you walk quick, nobody will know they’re not the…

Shopping Sabbatical: Part F (for failure)

photo via Stylizimo I set out to do a month-long shopping sabbatical in August. I failed, but I was okay with that because my self-esteem couldn’t take another month of not having any jeans that fit, so I extended the shopping embargo through September. And I failed again. This tassel necklace was my first fail (the bracelet was a gift…

Shopping Sabbatical (Part Deux): An Update

photo via Stylizimo So, how did your shopping sabbatical go? Did you make it through 30 days with no new clothes, shoes, or accessories? I didn’t. But hear me out. As I was organizing my closet, I got frustrated that not a single pair of jeans fit properly. They were all either too big, too small, too short, too worn,…

Shopping Sabbatical (Part Deux)

photo via Stylizimo It’s been eight months since I completed my four-day marathon closet purge and things are a mess. Dresses are falling off hangers, blouses are crushed and crinkled, and there’s a pile of jeans in the corner that my dog has chosen as his new crash pad. I don’t know what fits and what doesn’t and there’s a…

Fun with Flamingos

It’s official. Flamingos are having a moment. I’ve been on board since I purchased an adorable pink flamingo beach tote from Kate Spade a few years back because it spoke to my Mrs. Roper ambitions so I’m glad to see our feathered friends in the spotlight again. Here’s a few of my favorite pieces of flamingo paraphernalia (those beach towels…

Beach Bag Essentials from Target

The weekend doesn’t officially start without a trip to Target to pick up the necessities. This past weekend, that included everything needed to sit by the pool and enjoy the first three consecutive days of sunshine we’ve had this summer. I’m no stranger to the aisles of Target, so I whipped my way through beauty, home goods, and accessories (with…
