Treat Yo’ Self – Express Sale

I was lucky enough to get a Christmas Bonus from my job this year, and I decided that I would be responsible with 75% of it (saving it for my upcoming wedding!), and then splurge with 25%. Express was having a big sale, so I went shopping! In the words of Parks and Rec, Treat Yo’ Self.

I’m out of town on a business trip this week, so excuse the hotel bathroom background! 

These are the things I found. Shop all of them at the bottom of the post!



COWL NECK EXTREME CIRCLE HEM SWEATER
This high-low hem sweater is cute and comfortable! I love the neutral color and big cowl neck.


EXPRESS ONE ELEVEN MISTLETOE AND MIMOSAS GRAPHIC TEE
Mistletoe and Mimosas, where can you go wrong?? This one is actually a sleep shirt. This is a size Small, and I’m planning on exchanging it for an XS as it’s a little big.

COWL NECK SHAKER KNIT SWEATER
This is warm and soft. I love the winter white color. Another big cowl neck, and slightly belled sleeves.



CABLE KNIT CHENILLE BOAT NECK BALLOON SLEEVE SWEATER
My favorite purchase by far! I have this sweater in maroon, and I love it so much, I bought it again! I love the off the shoulder look and the balloon sleeves. Ivory is a win. I wore this on New Years Eve and got a lot of complements! 



KIMONO SLEEVE COWL NECK SWEATER
This fuzzy baby is soft and warm. I wanted it in off-white, and this pink was all that was left. I’m still undecided on whether or not I want to keep it. 



CUT-OUT LONG SLEEVE BLOUSE
I love this sheer bell sleeve top. It’s perfect for work and has the cute key hole detail in the front and the back as well. 


WHO WHAT WEAR PICK (MINUS THE) LEATHER DOUBLE PEPLUM JACKET
Perfect taupe color faux leather jacket. Absolutely love this one! This is a great layer for both fall and spring. Not too light, not too heavy.
MARLED OVERSIZED DEEP V-NECK TUNIC SWEATER
This was my outfit today before I left for my trip. Comfy and warm, win!

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
