Kendra Scott Swag
You might have noticed I shared a couple of new Kendra Scott pieces in my outfits above and my Snapchat followers already know that I got these from a blogger seminar I attended last week (called RS Masterclass). The San Diego event was sponsored by Kendra Scott and it was a great way to learn a few new things and meet some other nice local bloggers, like Audrey of Putting Me Together. I have always admired Kendra Scott pieces on other people, but haven't splurged on them myself yet so I was pretty excited (understatement!) to receive this gift at the event. The stones in the ring are so much prettier in person than I've been able to capture in any of my outfit pics so I tried to take a detail shot.

I don't normally wear the ring over my knuckles like this, but attempting to take pictures of the back of my hand with the ring in its normal position made it clear why the job of hand model exists. And I would definitely not be hired for that job unless they are specifically seeking a geriatric hand model.
Labor Day Sale Predictions:
Labor Day falls on September 7 this year, and Labor Day Weekend usually means a storewide 40% off sale at Express. I checked my sale post from last year, and they started the sale on the Wednesday before Labor Day at midnight (so really...the Thursday before Labor Day) and it ran for five days (through Monday). I don't have any inside information on this but I'm hoping they do it the same way this year! I've been holding off buying anything new from Express for the last couple of weeks and my wishlist is growing while I keep my fingers crossed for the sale. Normally I start texting my other Express shopping friends around this time with "What are you going to get at the sale?!" and I'm sure that will start happening this weekend! My next post will be on Tuesday, and between now and then I'll try to check in with all my friends to get the scoop on recent favorites and wishlist items and share them here on Tuesday so we don't miss out on anything good during the sale!
