Happy Friday friends! We don’t have too much on the agenda this weekend besides watching the Cowboys play on Sunday with family. I had girlfriends in town last weekend & Charles went home to help his Dad with some things, so we’re excited to just hang as a family this weekend. We just finished Yellowstone this week (#addicted) so we need to find a new series to binge! LMK if you have any suggestions. If you’re new around here, each week on Fridays I roundup my fav finds from the Internet that week, answer your questions or shopping/link requests, share weekend sales, roundup my discount codes & recent blog posts, & share a charitable organization to consider supporting. Let’s get into The Weekly Lo Down 09.25.2020.
The Weekly Lo Down | 09.25.2020
I’ve been crushing on this cute little bag! It’s so chic.
I found this denim mini skirt that I love! It comes in two washes & is under $80. I think the waist style of it is super flattering!
Need a new hair mask? I just got a restock of this one that I use in shower as a conditioner & absolutely love. It makes your hair so moisturized & shiny.
I can’t decide on a console/buffet table for our family room. I really liked this one, but went in store & the drawers are shallow. We need more storage I think so now I’m looking at this one. I was also considering this one that I shared on stories!
My girlfriend got me this candle that I am in love with! Seriously stocking up. We’ve been burning it every night since she gave it to me.
I ordered this phone stand for my desk to be able to see my phone easier when working. I like that it’s super simple!
Not sure that I’ve ever decorated for Halloween, but I am this year. I ordered these bats I can’t wait to put up! I’ll have some Halloween decor & clothing items up on the blog for you all to shop next week.
My fav hiking style bootie from last year is back this year! I have the black & I want the cognac. I get my true size! I love the slight heel & the shearling is so warm. The leather holds up great in snow or sleet/rain & they are so warm + go with so much. They are a splurge, but they will last you for years & years.
Fall/Neutral dresses for family pictures
I definitely think of things that will photograph & move well. Especially if you’ll be running after kids! I love the subtle fall colors on the edge of this one. Would look so cute with booties! For fall floral options I love this one or this one. I think this sweater dress is adorable. For solid options, I love this dress with a jacket over if needed & booties. Also, this solid Amazon dress comes in a ton of colors & is soo flattering! I have it in two colors.
Best Fall sweaters
This one for a sweater dress option, this one for an every day crewneck, & this one for a mock neck sweater. They are all from Amazon! I have them all & love them because they are affordable staples that you can buy in multiple colors. I have tons linked up in the LTK app if you need more options, too!
For a splurgeworthy option, I LOVE this pair or this pair. I got my true size in both. Abercrombie has become one of my go to stores for affordable denim & most of their jeans are BOGO 50% off right now. This pair is my current fav. I usually grab my true size, but if between sizes for sure go up! I get the regular length in them. Another favorite affordable denim brand is BDG from Urban Outfitters. I just got this pair. I almost always size up a size in their denim.
Hand Bags for Fall
Not sure what price range you’re wanting, but try this one & this one for under $100 options. This one also has fun 90s vibes! I love this one for under $200 & this one as a splurge option! LMK if you want more in a specific price range.
Can you compare P.Volve to John Benton’s program? Looking for a new workout!
Of course! I wrote a full P.Volve review a full months ago that may be helpful. I wrote a post about my workout routine when I was doing only John Benton workouts a few years ago. P.Volve allows you to stream on demand & is constantly sharing new workouts which I really enjoy. John’s method is super effective, but to do them interactively you have to join his zoom classes at specific times. The workouts are PDFs, so it isn’t someone leading you through & providing form reminders, etc. They are different styles, but both great! I also do Melissa Wood Health & some The Sculpt Society, too.
Black cowgirl boots
Fall wedding outfits. I am going to a wedding in Texas next month! The attire is dressy ranch.
I got you gf! Check out this post for tons of fall wedding dresses under $100.
Do you wash your hair after every time you workout? Seriously struggling with this!
Absolutely not. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I shared a step by step tutorial here of how I take my hair from the gym to work or out. It works with any dry shampoo you have on hand!

Share the Love
This week I am sharing the cause from my Change with Me post, which was my plan to continue to support the BLM movement through the end of 2020. My plan included a black owned business to support, book to read, documentary or movie to watch, & a charitable cause to support. This month, I chose to support The Bail Project. The Bail Project is committed to a future where no human being is ever forced to deteriorate in a jail cell, a future where a more sensible & equitable approach to social issues is possible. Pretrial reform is just one step in that direction; though it is an essential one, it must be accompanied by investments in alternatives to incarceration, community empowerment, police accountability, & new thinking on how we as a society respond to violence & other harm. The Bail Project offers a framework as a starting point for grounding bail & pretrial reform in a broader vision of democracy, progress, & collective wellbeing. If you feel compelled to join me in donating, you can do so here.
I hope you all enjoyed this week’s edition of The Weekly Lo Down! If there is anything at all I can help you all with further, please reach out. I love shopping for you all to make things as easy as possible for you. Hope you have a wonderful, fun, relaxing, & safe weekend! XO
