Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Top Picks

T.G.I.F! I know that everyone’s excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that’s going on right now for cardholders, so I’ll keep it short & sweet for you!

NORDSTROM -  Nordstrom Credit Cardholders: Shop Anniversary Sale Early Access through July 20!

I picked out what I consider the “classics” from this sale.

Happy Shopping, Friends!

Halogen Button Back Ruffle Hem Dress

Button Back Ruffle Hem Dress
This dress is so cute & your classic LBD. Every girl needs a LBD. I love the button back detail for a fun twist, plus, who can turn down a ruffle hem? I know I can’t.

J.Crew Tipped Pajama Shirt

J.Crew Tipped Pajama Shirt


You can’t go wrong with this one. Imagine with jeans, white jeans, cropped black pants & more. Pink tipping? Sold.

Chelsea28 Bell Sleeve Poplin Top

Bell Sleeve Poplin Top

Another bell sleeve blouse that can be dressed up or down. Love the layered bell look.

DL1961 Florence Skinny Jeans

DL1961 Florence Skinny Jeans

I have a pair of DL1961 Maternity jeans & loved them (The Emma Jean, for anyone currently expecting). When I was expecting our second, I wore them almost every single day, literally. This brand is amazing & worth every penny. They don’t stretch out, and you can’t beat the price. Under $100 for a classic, skinny jean.

 Halogen Soft Ruffle Jacket

Soft Ruffle Jacket

This jacket is adorable & under $100 right now (during the sale). I bought the smoke pink color. I really like a bright pastel coat during the colder months. If pink isn’t your thing, it also comes in a grey color. The ruffle/peplum waist, mixed with the tie waist is such a modern take on two classics. Well done.

Halogen Tweed Jacket

Halogen Tweed Jacket

This jacket looks like one J.Crew had last year, for a fraction of the price. You can wear this with jeans, dresses, skirts & more. The options are endless. I believe there is a matching skirt to it, if you work in a more traditional office.

Halogen Cashmere Off The Shoulder Sweater

Halogen Cashmere OTS

This would be a really cute sweater for date nights. Love carrying the off the shoulder trend into the winter months, and it looks really cozy. It comes in 3 other colors.

Halogen Wool & Cashmere Poncho

Halogen Wool & Cashmere Poncho

 This poncho is a game changer for anyone, especially a busy Mom getting everyone else ready for work/school in the mornings. You want to look polished, but are short on time? This is your ticket. Throw this on over a basic tee with your favorite jeans, grab your handbag, and go! Perfect for football games/tailgating, too. Dress it up or down.

Halogen Square Silk Scarf

Ditsy Square Silk Scarf

 Cannot say enough great things about the silk scarf. I’ve been wearing them since I was in college. You can wear it as a scarf, tie it on your handbag strap or even wear it in your hair as a headband/ponytail. I ordered this navy color. So pretty.

Nordstrom Round Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings

Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings

 The detail on these earrings is amazing. I love my real diamond earrings that my husband gave me, but I rarely wear them right now due to running around with two little ones. These are so pretty, and you can think of them as your “kid-friendly” diamonds, (or cubic zirconia) ha! No need to worry about losing a diamond earring on the playground. Feel better? I do.

Cathy’s Concepts Monogram Canvas Tote

Monogram Canvas Totes


This tote would be a great gift idea.

Cathy’s Concepts Monogram Cosmetic Case

Cathy's Concepts Monogram Cosmetic Case

This comes in a few other colors. I like the green/navy combination. Another great gift idea.

Living Proof Full Hair Care Trio

Living Proof Full Hair

Did anyone else lose their volume after having your babies like I did? If you’re looking for fuller, more voluminous hair, try this shampoo & conditioner set, they work. I haven’t tried the dry shampoo, but I bet it will work as well.

Tory Burch Claire Ballerina Flats

Tory Burch Claire Ballerina Flats

Dear Santa, they’ll go with everything. Love, me, in July.

 Tory Burch Crossbody Bag
Tory Burch Crossbody Bag

I love this handbag, everything about it.

Have you been shopping the sale? Loving it so far? There’s so much good stuff, at such great prices.

Have a great weekend!

Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale – My Top Picks

Happy (almost) Friday!

I thought I’d round up a few things that I’m loving right now at the Nordstrom Sale. There are only a few days left to shop the sale. It ends on June 4th. If you haven’t shopped it before, it’s a great time to stock up on the basics as well. On a completely, random side note, I would love it if they would change the name of the sale to the “semi-annual sale.” That’s just the English Major coming out in me. Ha!

Happy Shopping!

Kate Spade Camel iPhone case
This iPhone case is adorable. I love the navy color, the camel & the fact that it has a front cover/closure. If you don’t have kids yet, you’ll understand one day!

Tory Burch Wallet
Tory Burch Wallet
I don’t need a new wallet, but if I did, this would be my first choice. Such a pretty color!

Kate Spade Watch
kate spade watch
The bows…do you see them? The leather strap is classic, and a much softer look on your wrist for the Summer. The blush color & gold pairs well with so many outfits. You just can’t go wrong.

Sam Edelman Sandals
leopard sandals
These sandals are a no brainer in my book. Leopard is a neutral, year round. So happy that the heel isn’t ridiculously high either. I just can’t wear heels all day like I used to… (I sound just like my Mom, but she’s right!) Ha!

Zella Up & Away Pullover
zella top
This would be a great top to throw on over your tank top after walking/running, or even to layer with this Fall. I would wear a tank top underneath it though. It also comes in white.

Seagrass Basket
I absolutely love the pom poms on this basket, so cute! We literally have these kinds of baskets all over our house (at least one in each room) to throw toys in at the end of each day. It makes me feel like I still have everything tidy at night. Even though in reality each basket is emptied, every day, in every room. If you don’t have kids yet, it’s a great basket for extra throws, dog toys, etc.

What did you find that you love from the Nordstrom half-yearly sale?

Banana Republic – My Top Picks

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday filled with love, laughter and the ones you hold near and dear.

Can you believe it’s December 1st? Bring on all of the Christmas cheer…

hello december

There are so many styles to choose from out there. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I tend to invest in more  “classic” pieces. Banana Republic is just that, for me at least. I am still wearing some pieces from them from many moons ago…literally.

So, since I’m a huge Banana Republic fan, I thought I would share some of their latest styles that I am in love with right now.

Flutter Sleeve Dress

BR Flutter Sleeve Dress
This picture does not do this dress justice. I had the chance to see it in person the other day, and it is simply stunning. It would be great for the holiday season. The sleeves though…they’re just so pretty.

Ruffle Front Blouse

BR Ruffle top
This top is so fun and feminine. The red is perfect for the holidays, and well after they’re gone. You know what they say, if you find something you like, buy it in every color, right? I’m not sure my husband would agree, do you?

Oversized Turtleneck Sweater

BR Oversized Turtleneck sweater
In my opinion, there’s nothing better than throwing on an oversized sweater on a cold, winter’s day . This would look darling dressed up, or paired with denim. There’s no such thing as too many turtleneck sweaters in your closet. You’ll wear them for years, trust me.

Crepe Fringe Top

BR Fringe Top
It’s all about the details…a blouse with fringe detail? Yes, please! This is a fantastic party top for the Christmas season and beyond. It also comes in black. And, you can wear it year round my friends. What girl wouldn’t be happy wearing this?

Pieced Jacquard Sleeveless Top

BR Jacquard Top
How beautiful is this top? I love the green, pink and navy print. A flattering fit for many. This would look great now, and even in the Summer with white denim. Love it.

Delicate Teardrop Necklace

BR Teardrop Necklace
This teardrop necklace is so simple and classic, and that’s why I’ve been drawn to it. A great everyday necklace. Also a good idea for a stocking stuffer for a sister or friend, too.

don't be the same

Have a happy day!
