If you’re trying to figure out what to wear to a summer wedding, this is the one to get. It’s be perfect for a summer wedding, or a handful of other events, like a cocktail party, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or even fancy dinner with your man. And it’s under $100! Total win, right!? I feel like our summers are always booked with weddings (which I love, btw!), and I’m always looking for something to wear. It’s so hot in South Carolina, so I need something that is going to keep me cool, but is also pretty and elegant. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor wedding, this dress is so pretty and I think would be just perfect!
Sadly, this particular one is sold out (crossing my fingers it comes back), but I’ve linked a few other dresses that are so similar and just as fun!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale isn’t over yet, there’s still 6 days left to shop it! I think it’s a great time to stock up on Christmas gifts at unbeatable prices now, which will save you money in the long run. Plus, you’ll be so thankful when November rolls around and you already have your Christmas shopping finished! I mean, imagine a Christmas where all there is to do is sit back, kick up your feet, and listen to Christmas music while you sip hot chocolate. Dreamy, right!? ;)
ForMom // I picked a cozy neutral blanket for your mommas. Such a beautiful, classic gift that would no doubt be used and loved.
Foryourbestgirlfriends // You can’t go wrong with a cute little coffee mug. Because let’s be real, you can never have too many coffee mugs.
Foryourin–laws // A beautiful wood/marble serving board. It’s a bit of a higher price point, but I think would be a great gift both mother-in-law and father-in-laws would love.
ForDad // I don’t know about your dad, but my dad never buys clothes for himself, so opting for clothes makes a great christmas gift.
Foryoursisters // The yummiest candles that any sister would love (I know I would!)
Today we are headed back from a little beach trip to celebrate my little sister (who just competed in her first body building competition and is 15 months sober, praise!). It has been so amazing having her back in my life, and seeing her true self again. Anyway, another story for another day…
TheNordstromSale has me drooling over fall, but there’s no denying there is still a solid 2 months of hot, boiling heat here in South Carolina (boo!!!). It’s been a bit of a rough summer for us…hotter than most. The AC in our house went out, so we lived with it for a few weeks while it was on edge before we finally bit the bullet and replaced it (another praise! so thankful for AC!). My car AC also has split personality disorder and will go out randomly….usually right around 12:30 pm on a hot sunny day when Piper is in the car and screaming because now she is not only tired and ready for her nap, but hot and sweaty. Cool. Actually, not cool. Very hot! I’ve vowed to leave the South to move to Alaska and never look back, more than once.
But…I am trying to make the best of it and enjoy the summer season. This outfit is certainly inspired by Summer, and I’m trying to look on the bright side, eh ;). And nothing says summer more than a little Beach Boy’s “Good Vibrations,” which is my song of choice when I’m trying to be all positive and crap.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! Today it opens to Card holders, and it will open to the rest of the public on July 21 and run through August 6.
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you might be asking?? Well, let me enlighten you. It’s Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year, where new styles that are coming out for Fall are on major discount. What’s so special about this sale is that it’s not discounted items at the end of a season, but it’s brand new items that are discounted before the season even starts.
It’s my favorite time to snag more pricey items, like boots, coats, and designer jeans for a steal! Or, if you are a super over achiever, it’s a great time to buy Christmas presents early and save some money. You’ll be happy you did when December rolls around! It also gets me so ready and excited for Fall. I know it’s blazing hot outside, but I can see fall on the horizon and cannot wait!
If you see an item you love, it’s important to snag it ASAP because everything goes so fast! I learned this the hard way last year and am still dreaming of the perfect taupe booties that were just outside of my reach.
Ready to shop the sale, but not a card holder? No worries, you can sign up here and start shopping! If you are like me and are not a fan of credit cards, you can get a debit card, which will pay for your items straight from your bank account. You know, just like that fabulous little Target Red Card. With the nordstrom debit or credit card you earn points, which is essentially free money, toward your next purchase every time you shop. If not for the nordstrom anniversary sale, it’s totally worth it in general of you ask me. Sign up now and you can shop the sale early!
Ok, enough blabbing. Below are my absolute favorite picks from the sale! There are so many items to weed through, so I’ve pulled my absolute favorite! Let me know what you get and love, and if you have any questions about the sale. Happy happy shopping!
