Saturdays, Sundays + Sales

Three day weekends are the definition of happiness around here. I'll probably be working through most of it, but at least I get to have my sweet husband at home by my side! I found this tee at Anthro last year, and I don't know if I was more excited about it then, or when I found it in the back of my closet (read: bedroom floor) this morning! 

With long weekends come major sales, and I don't know about you, but my Summer wardrobe needs a major upgrade! We're heading to the lake soon for my family's annual houseboat trip, and I haven't swapped out most of my warm weather clothes for a couple of years now ... I figured while I was doing some hardcore online shopping this weekend, I'd round up some of my favorite sales that are going on right now!

Babe Status

Babe Status featuring @urbanoutfitters @forever21 @toms @LOFT via www.chelceytate.com

My love affair with stripes is still going strong, and I'm not sure I'll ever be able to give them up. I've been trying to convince myself that I need to stop buying new striped pieces, and then before I know it, I have a new black and white dress from Forever21 arriving at my doorstep. You can take the girl out of the stripes, but not the stripes out of the girl! That's how that saying goes, right? 

Lately, my day to day life has been a big ball of work laced with good intentions, and this kind of outfit is one that you'll catch me in pretty much every day. It's easy, comfortable, and I've been swapping out my trademark floppy hats for baseball caps lately. In my world, you can never go wrong with a good t-shirt dress and baseball cap! Especially one that says "babe" on it! I mean, come on! I'm totally obsessed with it. It boosts my confidence a little bit even when I know I'm rocking day 4 dirty hair under it. ;) 

P.S. Don't forget that you can always shop these looks below. I've also linked some of the other baseball caps I've picked up lately that I can't get enough of!

Give 'Em The Cold Shoulder

Cold Shoulder Urban Outfitters Dress Summer Style via www.chelceytate.com

If you've been following along with me for any amount of time, then you know I'm not one to spend a whole lot of time getting ready everyday. I work from home, which basically means that most days are spent in yoga pants, my TOMs, and a graphic tee. So yesterday, after spending way too much time getting ready, steaming the wrinkles out of dresses, and actually putting make-up, I was less than thrilled to find out it was raining outside. That's when this cute little gazebo saved the day ... Thank goodness for the sun staying out just long enough, umbrellas, and my trooper of a husband who played around with the settings on our camera until the light was just right. 

Ok, so onto this outfit now that I've pretty much cleared up that this is definitely not what I wear everyday (even though it is a SUPER simple look to throw together)! Just keeping it real! Although, this is probably what I'll end up wearing to the multiple graduations I'm attending in the next couple of weeks. I used to be totally obsessed with strapless tube style dresses a few years back, and now I'm wondering why in the world I didn't opt for a cold shoulder version like this one? SO much more flattering! I was pleasantly surprised by the length, too. I'm only 5'2", but GEEZE. The dresses these days might as well be labeled as (barely) oversized t-shirts ... Urban Outfitters (where this dress is from) in particular is pretty bad about super short dresses, but this one is absolutely perfect. 

Today has been pretty unproductive in terms of actual work getting done thanks to a messy kitchen; which also just so happened to have no food in it ... Well, we had food if you count the not-so-fresh veggies left over from the ghost of dinners last week that never got cooked. I'm the WORST about buying too much food, and then it ends up all going bad, but I think I've found a solution! We signed up for a food delivery service called Hello Fresh, and our first delivery comes this Tuesday. I'll pop in with a full review of what we think, but if you want to try it out, then be sure to use this link for $40 off your first box! I have to say, I will be SO STOKED if this ends up replacing the several hours spent every week meal planning and grocery shopping ... 

Alright, y'all! That's all for now --
