Manic Monday Must-Haves

I hope you all had a fun weekend celebrating the 4th of July! My son, Jackson, and I had the great privilege to serve at our church's Celebrate Freedom event...the Ring Toss got cometitive, y'all! So much fun! I loved having the opportunity to serve our community alongside my son and countless others overflowing with joy and a passion to share God's love with others. Sunday was most definitely a full day of rest!

I have a new favorite at-home resting spot in this little corner of our room, thanks to a recent mini makeover.  I recently purchased these prints from Scarlet & Gold. It was VERY hard to choose which ones to get because I seriously love all of her designs. In addition to wall prints, she has phone cases, apparel, and some other inspirational goodies. Aren't the prints cute?!? I love the messages behind her designs. My little corner just feels more peaceful.

Sunday rest spot!

If you don't already, be sure to follow us on Instagram @krisandjackblog. We try to post fun stuff daily- including favorites, inspiration, outfits, and any contests/giveaways (spoiler alert: new giveaway coming VERY soon!). I actually just posted some of my new favorite shoes on Instagram this past weekend. I'm loving the espadrille trend this season and wanted to jump on the bandwagon. These espadrilles by Soludos are perfect! So comfortable! So cute! You can wear them with shorts, skirts, day dresses...basically all of your Summer essentials. I have even noticed that I've been reaching for these over my beloved flip flops. They just make me feel a little more "put together" if I'm out shopping, or going out for a casual family dinner...or if my painted toenails look like they've been through a hail storm...

I chose the black leather pair (surprise, surprise), but they are also available in a canvas material. There are tons of different colors and patterns to choose from. I've picked out some of my favorites below (some for less than $10!) The lace-up style is next on my list!

And speaking of lists, I've got my list all lined up for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that starts this week! Yay! This sale is THE best because they markdown brand new Fall merchandise for a couple of weeks (then it goes back up to full price). It allows you to get a glimpse into Fall trends and gives you an opportunity to add some new favorites to your wardrobe for a deal. Two things I love: a sale and preparation!
