Welcome to the Valentine’s Day/President’s Day long weekend, y’all! 🎈🎉 While you may or may not be off on Monday, there’s still lots to celebrate when a long weekend comes right on the tail of Valentine’s Day, amirite? 💗
I’m Hitting the Road
I’m 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! We’ll 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 [email protected] if you want to talk details. 😃
Next week, I’ll be getting underway with my 2020 Spring & Summer style guides! I’ve been working hard on them, and I’m 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 weekend’s What’s Up, Weekend post and here are a few more:
- The espadrille is back! Look for a marriage of last year’s hot flatform sandals and the traditional espadrille to produce some of the cutest summer sandals I’ve 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 Week’s Best-Seller
It’s always fun for me to see what you all loved from the past week, and tracking that helps me know what kind of content you’re enjoying here on Empty Nest Blessed! There were two this week!
These adorable snakeskin print booties were one of my favorite fall finds, and I’ve 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 they’re still available in every size with free shipping and returns. They’ve already been restocked a couple of times, and I know they’ll sell fast now that they’ve been discounted, so I’d get ’em now if you want ’em!
These pretty floral press candles were also a big hit this week, and I know why! They’re well priced, make great gifts, and they’re unique! #lovethat
How fun is this heart sweatshirt! It’s a non-traditional Valentine’s Day look, for sure! In fact, it’s so non-traditional, I’ll 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 you’ll 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 I’ve highlighted them in blue for you.
