Hope you had a Monday filled with lots of coffee! Ours started bright and early at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for Knox’s MRI and if you’re following Crockpot Empire on Instagram you got to see a lot of the behind the scenes. Some cute some not so cute, more like heartbreaking. That’s are life and we have learned to accept and tolerate the pain. We will get the results soon, and I will certainly share with all of you as soon as we hear. I pray that he will be holding a big sign and we will popping some champagne and coca-cola for a big celebration that he made it into the cancer survivorship program! In the meantime, let’s get our minds on something fun like shopping my winter sale round up!This is the time of year when all of the fall and winter favorites that I’ve been eyeing go on sale, and I get some awesome pieces at amazing prices. I always buy at the end of the season, when items go on sale for the next season, so that I don’t have to pay full retail price. I snagged this sweater that was $150 at Anthropologie for only $50! If you like a good deal, keep on reading for some of my favorites! From Nordstrom to J.Crew there is something for everyone! There are so many hot sales out there and it can get so overwhelming having to comb through pages and pages of online sale items to find what you want. I have sifted through retailer after retailer and done it for you, so that you can sit back and shop without the stress! I have really been focusing on being intentional in every aspect of my life and shopping (i.e. my closet) has been put at the top of that list. Instead of having a closet full of clothes I rarely (or ever) wear, I promised to make every piece have meaning. Whether it be a basic that can be layered upon and worn season after season, or a statement piece that I fall in love with and just can’t stop thinking about, it has to have purpose. I want every piece that takes up my closet space to be intentional. Here are some of my favoirite basics:
Some accessories that every Empress needs in her closet:
And finally, a few items on my everlasting wish list:
While you’re out there shopping, by all means please let me know if you find something that we would love too! I would love to share it in a post for all of us! As always thanks for stopping by and we’ll meet you back here on Wednesday for a really cool and mind blowing post all about rice! I couldn’t believe what I found out when I read what Kate found out!
