Knotted Maxi

The usual suspects (black + white) are back again. Surprise, surprise!

I've had this dress forever, but recently took a page from Pursuit of Shoes' book by trying a knotted maxi. Needless to say, this tried and true classic was completely transformed.

Oh, btw - did you see these hat and sunnies? I happened upon them during our night out in Branson landing last week at a store called Versona. Best of all, I scored them both for under $30. Woot, woot! Totally feel like Rachel Zoe in them. #Maj

My First Pair Of Flats

Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to the very first pair of flats I have EVER owned. Crazy, right?! No joke, though. These are them.

It's not that I don't think flats are totally cute. I actually really like them. I just hate them on my big "boat" feet. I finally broke down a few months ago and picked these up, and I have to say I fell in love. Maybe it's the d'orsay toe that gives the optical illusion of petite feet, or maybe it's just the fact that this aztec print is super cute. Whatever it is, I'm officially on the flat bandwagon and loving every step of it. 

Flats: Sole Society, almost identical 
Jeans: Marshall's, love these (Only $32!)
Tee: Target, similar // Chambray: Gap, similar (on sale!)
Bag: Marshall's, love this // Sunnies: SPY, exact
Earrings: Target (old) similar // 
Necklace: Target (old) super similar (on sale!)

J.Crew Summer Sale

I'm back from vacay and just in time for the J.Crew Summer Sale! 

I can't even believe that it's nearing the tail end of Summer! Where does the time go?! Fall will be here before we know it, which (if you're anything like me) means that it's time to spruce up on your Autumn wardrobe - but only after I take advantage of these killer deals. Check out my picks from the J.Crew sale, and some of the items that may, or may not, have made their way into my shopping bag - like these gold slides I've had my eye on.

Psst - use the code "shopsale" at checkout for an extra 30% off already reduced prices.

Road Trip Essentials

Photo Cred

The Behr clan is spending the week at Table Rock lake outside of Branson, Missouri. We try to go every year and it's a great time for our family to connect, spending all day on the lake together boating and boarding. Table Rock holds many special memories for Brandon and his family, and I love that we are keeping the tradition going now that I've joined the mix. I have to admit that I am not a "road trip" kind of girl (I'm more of the jet-setter type...surprise, surprise!) but since it's a 13 (ish) hour drive from Colorado Springs - packing a bag full of these essentials makes the journey a little more enjoyable. Plus, good company doesn't suck either.

Btw, I didn't realize it before we came but there is NO WIFI in our cabin. (GASP! Dun dun dun..) Make sure to follow along on Instagram (#BehrsGoToTableRock) where I'll be posting photographic updates while popping in and out of LTE coverage. 

See you next week!

9. Pro Tips On Closet Organization.

Have a great weekend everyone! The Behr Family is off to Table Rock for our annual lake trip. Super excited to spend a relaxing week on the lake with my family. Say a little prayer for my husband, though. He's a really good wake boarder and last time we went to Table Rock he couldn't board because of a broken foot (biking accident) and now he is having some knee issues (ahem, ahem, another biking accident...) and isn't sure if he is going to be able to ride! I feel SO, SO bad for him! Love that he lives life to the fullest, but wish he's take it easier before our wake boarding trips! Anyway, please pray he heels quickly and is able to ride!

Stay tuned for tips on how to survive a road trip and what to pack for a week on the lake.

Pleated Parisian

You may remember this shirt from the Carrera sunnies post, where I promised to come back with full outfit deets. (Still time to enter to win your own pair of Carrera Sunnies btw! More on that here.) 

I'm a sucker for printed tees, but don't always love the hefty price tag they come with. (I mean, $100 for a tee is a just little too steep for me!) So when I first saw this Je T'aime tee from T + J designs for only $28, I jumped all over that ish! 

I love pairing masculine and feminine pieces together, like tees and skirts, and love playing around with side knots and such - but sometimes, a classic look is in order and, when in doubt, a trusty tuck never fails to provide a polished look.

Staying Organized

In a world of iCal's and iOS updates, the technologically challenged can sometimes fall short of keeping up with the latest in updates. Luckily, a tried and true day planner keeps me organized in my day-to-day. From organizing blog posts, to collaborations and giveaways, and even my personal life, an old fashioned day journal keeps me on track.

When selecting a planner, it's important to me to go with one that I will be proud to carry around everyday - and Kate Spade never fails at releasing the cutest styles - like this black and white striped one I picked up. (Also loving this one with gold dots) and I just love that the 2015 planner begins in Aug 2014. One and a half years for $36 is worth every penny to me!

How do you stay organized?
