I did an insta story last week where I shared how much I love this incredible essence water. I was so glad to see it on sale for just under $100! This kit will last you months, and it is the only thing I have ever used that makes my pores minimize so quickly. I love this stuff!
The PMD goes on sale every Nsale, and it makes me so happy! I’ve had mine for almost 5 years, and it’s incredible for getting rid of dead skin and making your skin tighter and clearer.
If you follow me on Insta stories you know my love for Jo Malone. After smelling almost every perfume in London, Jo Malone ‘Wild Bluebell’ was the winner. This cute box set gives you such amazing scents (and they last all day for me!).
I love that Mac picked ‘Nice & Spicy’ for their lipliner color in this kit! It is so good. Its great for all skin tones. If you are blonde like me, I top it with a bit more of a pink color since the pencil has a hint of brown. But that will keep the pink from being too light. It’s also super pretty on its own, lined and filled in!
I love me some Living Proof. Their products are such quality. I used their dry shampoo this morning. And yesterday morning. And probably the day before!
Amazing Grace is one of my favorite lotion scents. It’s a light floral, and it smells like heaven and babies. Their shower gel is super hydrating too!
Other than a giant loose powder brush, this set has all the brushes you need for a full face of makeup. I am so impressed at what a good selection of brushes come in this kit!
In case you missed my massive Nordstrom Women’s sale roundup from yesterday, you can view it here. It’s pretty epic!
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is live! I got back from shopping it a few hours ago, and my goodness I was blown away at how great it is. I make sure to add in all the sizing and fit info on my top picks below!!
–THE GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED AND THE WINNERS ARE POSTED AT THE VERY BOTTOM OF THIS POST!–
If you buy one pair of booties from this sale, make them these ones. They are just under $100, and the color is a perfect taupe/grey so it will go with everything. The peep toe means you don’t have to wait for fall to wear them, and the leather wipes off (I was so glad when I saw they weren’t suede!). These boots were high on lots of your lists, and I’m so glad to report they are perfection. They run TTS.
These booties are so similar to the pair that went lightning fast last year! I snagged a pair last year and still wear them all the time, so I didn’t pick these up, but grab them if you didn’t get them last year. They are just under $80. The side deep ankle cut is super elongating on the leg. They run TTS.
I love the cutouts along the sides of these booties and the grey is so pretty in person. Again, under $100!
I already got to try on all the leather jackets, and I can’t get over this one for $65! It looks so much more expensive in person and it also comes in this embroidered style I bought, grey suede, and bronze. Best price on a faux leather jacket I’ve seen and it is perfection! I bought this coat in grey and embroidered.
I love the color of the light blue wrap coat, and it is so soft and cozy. I have loved this jacket for years and the sale price of UNDER $160 is so worth it.
I love love love this light blue jacket. I showed me trying it on on my insta stories and it is dreamy!
This leather jacket is so soft and buttery, and it’s real leather so it will last forever. It runs big, so I found that the XS fit me best. I love the studs on it, but if you want less of a moto feel, go for this one. Still real leather and a similar price point (this one also runs one size big).
A camel coat is a true closet staple and this one is by far my favorite of the sale. At just under $100, it’s an amazing price for a coat that will never go out of style!
The color of this coat is more on the nude side than the pink side, and it is absolutely breathtaking in person! It’s on sale for just over $100, which is a killer deal for what luxurious quality it is! It runs TTS (I wear a small).
Stripe tees are always a sell out at the sale, and I loved the fit of this year’s stripe tee! It comes in six colors and it’s only $19!
This is the perfect colored plaid flannel for fall, and it’s great quality and super soft!
There are so many great ruffled tops this year, but I loved the look of this blue striped bell sleeve top. This was one of your guys’ top picks for shirts, and it was too good to pass up for under $60!
This white button down shirt is such a great deal for only $30, and it’s one of those tops you’ll want in your closet for fall layering!
Velvet was a huge theme across the board this season, but I think I love it the most in shoes! These burgundy velvet booties are so pretty in person, and these velvet pumps are perfect for fall for only $80!
The Sonix Parker tortoise sunglasses were one of the items that everyone seemed to want from the sale, and they are so cute in person! For under $80, they are a quality pair of glasses for a good price point!
In my last post, I talked about these beauties and all the reasons you’ll want to get them for fall before the price goes up. Sunday is your last chance to get them under $80. After the sale they go up $50! Lace-ups are a big trend this fall, and you can’t go wrong with anything maroon when the weather gets cooler.
Summer baseball games with the family call for comfortable basics. This dress is perfect for long days, and it was actually really easy to wear to the game because it’s loose fitting and has some stretch to it. I layered my jean jacket (even though it was so hot) to add some Dodger blue, and to break up all the white in my dress. I kept it casual in my sandals and hat, which are staples for hot nights at the ball park.
This blue dress is under $100, and it comes in so many great colors! Four of the colors are really pretty shades of greens that will be perfect for fall. The fit is really comfortable, with some stretch to it. These heels are also under $100, and one of my favorite pairs to wear because they have so many amazing details to them.
This outfit combines so many of my favorite purchases from the Anniversary Sale. I know you guys have heard me say this a million times, but this is the best leather jacket I’ve ever owned. You won’t be sorry if you decide to get it while it’s on sale. It’ll be a closet staple of mine for years to come. I also love this white blouse, black booties, and these distressed black pants because they will work with so many different outfits this fall. I linked to three other black bags that are on sale through Sunday. Kate Spade, Coach, and Ted Baker made some beautiful fall bags as usual, and now is good chance to splurge on bigger purchases like a bag because the price will go up significantly after Sunday.
This top is so pretty and detailed, and it’s a really flattering style. It also comes in black, but I love how the details in the white stand out against the blue in my jeans, and how easily it dresses up an outfit with minimal effort. It’ll definitely be making more date night appearances. I also linked to some similar silver flats that always work well with white tops.
Time has gone so fast this summer! I can’t believe we are already one week into August. I hope you guys are taking time to enjoy your weekends, and the sunshine while it’s still here. I wanted to remind everyone that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends on Sunday (tomorrow!), which means prices will go up on all sale items on Monday. I highly recommend scouring through the in-stock items again (I put categories of in-stock favorites here), and making sure there isn’t anything else you’ll want for fall. It can feel a little funny buying fall clothes in the summer, but trust me, you’ll thank yourself in October when you’re starting to pull out all your plaid shirts and booties instead of running out to buy them at full price!
Also, if you entered my Favorite Things Giveaway, check this post on Sunday to see if you won one of the prizes! I’ll be announcing winners there!
INSTAGRAM ROUNDUP: NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE EDITION
Happy Saturday you guys! This week I’ve rounded up all of my recent Instagram posts that have outfits where I’m wearing anything I purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There were a lot to keep up with, so I wanted to put them all in one place for everyone. And now that the sale is open to everyone, I know items are selling out fast so I want to make shopping as simple as possible. In case you missed it, I launched my new site on Wednesday and I have an entire section dedicated to the Anniversary Sale. You can shop that here.
I have been in touch with Nordstrom this morning, and I have an UPDATE on all of the sold out items! They are planning on restocking most of the items that sold out during the pre-sale. They don’t know what days they will restock, but it will be THIS WEEK. So here is the best solution to grab those hot items before they sell out for good:
Head to Nordstrom.com and throw all the things you want to purchase in their “wishlist” option. Then, check back frequently. You will only have to check your personal wish list to see what is in stock, rather than having to search each item individually. That way you can grab it as soon as its replenished!
You can also go to my sale roundup post, where I pulled together all the best pieces from the sale in categories that are easy to shop from. I also did a post with all of my dressing rooms snaps, giving you sizing and fit information on some of my favorite items. And most recently, I did an entire post on some of mine (and Garrett’s) favorite men’s picks from the sale!
These jeans are so comfortable, and such a good price point. I would highly recommend getting a pair. If they don’t have your size left, put a pair in your wishlist because they should be restocked sometime next week! This shirt was also a huge score. It is so incredibly soft and goes with so many things. You’ll want a basic top this fall that you can wear under sweaters and layers. I know this cargo jacket went so fast, but I linked to a similar cargo jacket that has a cute draped look to it. A lot of things went really fast this year, but be on the lookout for restocking happening next week!
I love this stripe top so much. I know sizes were limited last time I looked, so if they don’t have your size I would opt for a bold patterned plaid top (there were so many cute ones this year). My flats are also one of the things selling out extremely fast, but I linked to the same shoe (just in other colors). They have some really cute burgundy ones that would be great for fall. My bag comes in brown and black, and it’s less than $30! You can’t beat that, especially if you like to change up your fall bags frequently. My black pants are going to be a great fall staple too. I love the distressing on them (not too much, and just on the knees).
Okay, these booties. I love them. They are under $100, the perfect nude for so many fall looks, and have a great look (and cut out) to them. If they don’t have your size, these booties are very similar in style. They are also really comfortable and come in three different colors.
This blue dress is so comfortable, and it’s one of those items that you can get a lot of wear in right now, before fall. The same goes for open-toe heels. They are perfect for a transition from summer to fall, before we get into full on boot weather. My wool hat is another one of those fall staples you probably aren’t thinking about right now, but come fall you’ll be wishing you had it. But by the time fall comes, it’ll be back to full price! It comes in black too.
I could live in this pajama set. It’s so cozy. If you’re like me and you love a good set of pajamas to lounge in, these are them. They are soft and stretchy (they have some spandex in them), so they’re extra comfortable for relaxing in.
This top is a great basic that is really easy to dress up. Those are the best kinds of tops because you really can’t go wrong when you wear them. This one is soft, comfortable, not too revealing (the slit doesn’t go too low to where you have to pull it up constantly), and it comes in lots of colors. My heels are old, so they are no longer available, but I linked to similar Steve Madden sandals that are part of the Anniversary Sale. This one comes in black or taupe suede, and it has a nice cut out, lace-up look. This pair comes in nude or black leather, and it is an open-toe sandal without the cutout look.
Fall is the best time to add earth tones to your outfits. I love how the blue in jeans looks with the army green color in my cargo jacket. When you add some softer, neutral colors like nude heels and a grey top, you’ve got yourself a basics outfit ready for fall. You’re going to see a lot of this green color around this fall. There are lots of dresses, tops, and jackets in a really similar green all throughout the sale.
This top is such a must. It’s going to be your go-to top for fall, so if you haven’t gotten it… trust me, you’ll want to. It comes in lots of different colors, and it’s easy to wear casually with jeans and some booties, or dressed up with some heels. Speaking of heels… I’m so glad I got these. They are the prettiest cabernet color, which will be perfect for fall and the holidays. They also come in a black and nude suede. I love all the detail they add to a simple outfit.
This year there was such a good selection of plaid tops. This one is so buttery soft and comfortable. Plus, how many times have you loved a plaid top, but wanted it just a bit longer? This one definitely got the length right. You can wear it untucked or do a slight tuck to bring up the length. Either way, this top is a must for fall. My jeans aren’t part of the Anniversary Sale, but they are one of the most comfortable jeans I own. They are also under $100, and the distressing on them isn’t overdone.
None of this outfit is part of the Anniversary Sale, but a lot of people were interested in my blazer, so I wanted to throw it in here. It’s a great alternative to a cardigan sweater because it’s nice and long but more dressy. I love that it’s not too oversized that it looks baggy, and it definitely doesn’t lose it’s feminine touch. My top is great for layering, adding something a little more than just your basic white tee would. It would actually be a great white top for fall, layered under long sweaters and jackets.
This striped top is another top I’m glad I grabbed. It’s one I have in white, and love. It’s a great basic top that is really versatile and flattering. I always like to get it one size bigger so that it fits a little looser. It goes with everything, and it comes in lots of different colors. It’s a favorite of mine. I also love how easy this bag is already fitting into my wardrobe… so glad I picked it up!
I couldn’t just choose one plaid top. I’m really glad I got this one because the coloring just reminds me of fall. It’s supposed to be oversized, and it is. It’s really comfortable, and so soft. You’ll want to wear it everywhere already. I love how much it stands out against my jeans, slightly tucked in. It would also go well with white pants and some booties.
I’m so bummed that this bag is sold out because it’s just so pretty. It has such a classic, tailored look to it. But I linked to three other black bags that are similar and all part of the Anniversary Sale. This one is a crossbody with a similar envelope type look at the opening. This one has a really unique cut on the opening flap, with pretty gold hardware. This Kate Spade bag is the biggest of the three, and it’s also very classic looking, but it has more of a minimal looking design.
I love how this white top looks under a long blazer. The peplum adds detail and style to the look. It’s not part of the sale, but it’s less than $40 and comes in two other colors. The sleeves are elbow-length, which makes it an easy top to transition into fall too.
This sweater is so comfortable. It’s really soft, and flattering too. Fall is all about sweaters, and I love having basic colored tops that I can use to layer, and add in to a variety of outfits. It works really well with jeans on it’s own, but I could just as easily throw a vest or cardigan over it when it gets cooler. My flats are older, so they are no longer available, but I linked to some similar ones that are part of the Anniversary Sale.
It’s been a busy week with my new site launch, so I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend with my family. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
I had so much fun shopping the Nordstrom sale yesterday bright and early. I did most of my shopping for this sale online, but I knew I needed to get into the actual store to really let you know the look/feel of my favorite items. If you follow me on snapchat, I took you along with me while I tried everything on 😉 I got lots of questions about the pieces, so I loaded all of my snaps below, as well as sizes I’m wearing and my personal thoughts on a lot of the items so that you can get an idea of how things fit.
These are kind of just thrown together in a big post, unfiltered. I started getting a little snap happy after only 3 hours of sleep…and snap chat is where I let it all hang out!
The BEST sale of the year is here! It’s time to stock up on the newest fall items at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I wrote about all my insider trick for shopping the sale here. If you don’t already have a Nordstrom card, you can sign up for one here so you can start shopping before it opens to the public.
CLICK ON ANY OF THE IMAGES ABOVE TO SEE THE DISCOUNT!
I have to be honest..last year I was a little bit disappointed in the selection of sale items. But that is not the case this year! I was blown away by how great the selection of booties, larger bags, leather jackets, and distressed jeans they have this year!
I’ve rounded up all of my favorites by category below:
These open toe booties are such a closet staple and can be worn year-round. Booties almost identical to these sold out within a week last year, so jump on them this year!
Summer is for cute straw beach totes like this one. It’s so fun! I love it. But definitely don’t feel limited to just pulling it out for beach days. Totes like this work well for running errands, or even adding them to your summer date night look. I love how the straw in the bag looks with the cognac in my wedges and my white dress. It’s just so summery.
Summer nights at a baseball game are so magical. This is the easiest comfy outfit for a game, or just running errands on days that you won’t be in the sun too much. Converse are comfortable for long days, and they work well with any casual look. If you wanted to be cute and casual on a warmer day, you could switch out your jeans for a summer dress with your Chucks too. I linked to my gold hanging light because I love it and think it’s adorable. But I also linked to my mannequin dress form for all of you girls interested! It’s a great thing to have when you start sewing, so if you signed up for the Modern Girl Sewing courses and you’ve found a new love for sewing, this may be something worth purchasing.
You can never have too many summer days of white and denim. White on white, as you may know, is a favorite of mine. I love the simplicity and elegance in an all white look that adds just a touch of color. My denim jacket and cognac wedges give your eyes just a little bit of contrast to look at. But the all white look still keeps your focus and draws attention. My eyelet top is sold out, but I linked to a similar one that is currently on sale!
Okay, you guys. These blue heels are one my favorite pairs right now! I love them so much. They are fun and flirty, and have the cutest details. They work with a dressier look, but they are also the perfect addition to a more casual look with distressed jeans and your favorite solid colored top. I’m so bummed that my top is sold out because it is seriously amazing. But I found some other great white tops that have similar features, like elbow sleeves. This one has a twisted (bunching) detail in the front that is so pretty, and it’s only $15. And this one has scallop details on the sleeves and bottom, plus it’s $25!
Happy Saturday! I hope you guys are enjoying these roundups of some of my weekly Instagram outfit posts. Let me know if there are other types of posts that you would be interested in seeing (outside of my usual posts). I’d love to hear what you guys are interested in seeing and reading about on here!
I also wanted to remind everyone that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (the biggest and best sale of the year) starts next week! Pre-sale for all cardholders starts on July 14th, which is next Thursday! For everyone else, the sale starts July 22nd and goes through August 7th. Oh my goodness you guys, it’s time to mentally prepare yourselves for what’s to come. This is the sale to save up for so that you can stock up on some key fall pieces to add to your wardrobe. I’m going to have a huge post for the sale next week, but I wanted to get you thinking about what’s to come.
The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on now through June 5th! I went through and picked out my favorite items and put them below in categories so they’re easy to shop straight from this post. I was actually surprised at how fast items are selling out! A lot of things only had a few sizes left, only a few hours after the sale started. So don’t wait if you love something because chances are it won’t be there when you come back for it later!
Overall, I think this sale has a lot of really great practical items that will work for both Spring and Summer. If you’re like me, you can appreciate the value of quality basics that work with multiple outfits, like this top that comes in a few different colors, and this flowy top that is so comfy and flattering. There are lots of cute sandals and flats too. I love these wrap sandals, and these studded flats. And don’t miss out on some really cute bags, like this Rebecca Minkoff tote in grey. Have fun shopping, and let me know what you guys find out there!
You can shop more of my favorites from each department below..
I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas! We had so much fun this weekend opening presents, eating, playing games with family, …eating some more. I’m all rested and refreshed and bringing you some amazing picks from the Nordstom Half Yearly sale that it happening now! It goes through January 3rd, but the really good items are going fast. To help you from having to pour through thousands of items, I’ve rounded them all up for you.
Here are a few more of my favorite items on sale up to 50% off!
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? This Nordstrom Clearance sale couldn’t be more perfectly timed. I woke up in the wee hours of the morning this morning and poured through their website. So some years I kind of have to struggle to pull out the good items on sale, but this year I did not have that problem! There are so many beautiful pieces on sale right now that are perfect for fall.
I ordered this sweater in the olive and camel color. It is just what I have been looking for and for under $30?! I’m sold.
I have loved these sandals forever. They are so gorgeous on.
I have these same heels in blush and they are the most leg-flattering heels I own. This houndstooth is so perfect for fall.
You don’t get more timeless than this bag in black.
These shoes are still a little steep, even with the sale, but I see them everywhere and the cut of them is just perfect for a bootie. I fall in love with them more each time I see someone wearing them.
I want this blush vest so desperately. It is less than $50!
This hat is such a good deal right now for only $25.

MY FAVORITE TOPS
I finally had a chance to browse through the Nordstrom Clearance Sale while nursing last night and holy cow they have some of my favorite buys ever on sale for 40% off! I have all of the following items and I love them. Here are my favorite picks:
I searched high and low for the perfect oatmeal colored cardigan to replace one that I had forever. This one is super soft and hangs beautifully and was a perfect replacement for my old one. (seen in this post)
It has been so crazy hot, and these pajama pants have been a life saver. They are super thin and soft, and I love the palm tree print! (seen in this post)
If you buy one thing in this sale, it should be these heels. They do wonders for your legs and are my favorite pair of heels I have ever purchased! (seen in this post and this post)
If you follow me on instagram, you know how much I love this necklace. I love the green and it is the perfect length. (seen here, here, here, here, and here….told you I loved it!)
These sweatpants are lightweight, super soft, and slim. The chicest sweatpants around! (seen in this post)
I posted about this blazer last night on my instagram, and it is seriously beautiful. Under $50 and it comes in 5 colors. Now I want it in white! (seen here and here)
Happy weekend everyone! This weekend Garrett and I are celebrating our 8th anniversary, so it’s such a special time for us. We went on a little babymoon weekend getaway a few weeks back so we are just heading out to a fun dinner tonight and keeping it low key. I’m sure we will watch our wedding video with the boys. They love it!
This weekend will wrap up the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale (officially ends tomorrow), so I hurried and found some great pieces that are still in stock and on sale for at least 40% off. Shopbop also just added some great items to their sale section. I’ve listed my favorites below:
There is one more style of blush colored clutch in the 40% sale and I was shocked it was restocked! This is such a hot color and the bag wont last long.
These sneakers are 40% off and I have had my eye on a pair for so long!
