Happy Friday, beautiful friends!! I am so excited for this weekend and for the fact that I finally have this bag!! I have been dreaming of buying a woven Bottega Veneta bag since last summer, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend more than $3,000!! on one. Luckily, I found a similar style on Amazon for 1 percent of the price of the real thing!! That’s right, this stunner is only $34! It comes in a bunch of colors, but I like this off-white color for summer.
This bag pairs perfectly with my new Banjanan dress that I’m wearing out for dinner tonight with my hubs! I am obsessed with this emerging brand. Caroline Weller, the founder and designer, worked on the design teams of Calvin Klein and J. Crew before moving to India and creating the bright, bold and beautiful, Banjanan. I’m wearing the Iris dress tonight and it is dreamy to say the least!
I think we all know by now that it is important to vote (major election year!!) so why not remind others in a cute way with this adorable Tory Burch T-shirt? I love it and plan to wear it even beyond the presidential election in November. I’m sure you’ve all seen this amazing lavender dress, by now, but if you haven’t, make sure you get one! It is the ultimate summer dress and SO feminine, I just love it!
I am also living for sets this year and I am so in love with the leopard print set by Ganni!! It is precious together or separately. I would definitely wear a white t-shirt with the shorts or black skinny jeans with the top. I would also love to pair it with these Chanel slides! Speaking of sets…who else loves a classic pajama set?! I sure do! I love this floral set by Ann Taylor and I love the price even more…it’s under $30!! Would be great for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.
It’s that time of year again…just a month late! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost here!! Growing up in Salt Lake, Nordstrom was the main store we would shop at and I have such fun memories of getting fall clothes and fun things from this same when I was a little girl.
Today, I’m sharing a sneak peek of my favorite items from the sale this year. The sale opens to the public on August 19th and you can shop earlier based on the status of your Nordstrom card level.
Each year for the sale there are a few things I stock up on. First and foremost, the Kiehl’s body lotion. This is my ABSOLUTE favorite lotion and I use it every day. It is regularly priced at $78 a bottle which can be a little expensive, but on the sale, it is marked down to $49. I usually buy three or four bottles and they last me an entire year until the next sale. I love this lotion because it is not filled when heavy scents or perfumes and has a beautiful texture. I hate watery lotions and overly-heavy creams and this Kiehl’s lotion has the perfect consistency of moisture. I also look forward to stocking up on my favorite bra during the sale…I wear the Calvin Klein t-shirt bra in nude every day and during the sale they are marked down to $26 during this sale. The Anniversary Sale is also a great time to buy yourself some new slippers! I love wearing slippers around the house and Ugg always puts out a great pair during this sale. This year I’m loving this great orange pair and for under $60, they a great deal! I know Christmas is a long time away, but maybe grab a few extra pairs for your mom and sisters, I think slippers are fabulous gifts to give!
I am so excited to see my favorite hoops on the sale this year!! I wear these all the time and people think they are real! They are normally $60, but during the sale they are marked down to $34.90. Make sure you get yourself the gold and silver because I promise you, you’ll be wearing these non-stop. If you’re in the market for an anniversary gift or maybe a push present, the Bon Levy diamond eternity band is an amazing choice!! It is beautiful and $1400 off during the sale! I’m also VERY into these crystal Dior sunglasses, how chic are they?!
I’m loving the clothes on this year’s sale as well. I bought the blue and white version of this ATM dress a few years ago and I wear it all the time. It’s machine washable and so easy to wear to the pool, on the plane, to lunch, to the grocery store…literally to whatever. Make sure you don’t let this one pass you up!
I also LOVE these pink Alo Leggings and Free People Tank Top…they would be so cute for yoga or a walk. I always size down for Alo because it runs big compared to Lululemon. And we can’t pass up on these adorable Roberta Roller Rabbit Pajamas… I would recommend getting an extra set for your sister or bestie too…they are sure to be loved by all!
What are your favorites from the sale?! Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I continue to share my favorites!!
Y’all…..this dress is giving me ALL of the Juliet vibes and I plan to live in it for the rest of this summer!! Did anyone else dream of being Claire Danes opposite *LEO* in the 90s version of Romeo + Juliet?! Because I did and this dress is getting me closer to that dream. I have a feeling this will sell out quickly so make sure you scoop it up while you can!
I don’t know if you’re in the market for a new hand or body soap, but let me tell you about the Raw Sugar Living soaps. I discovered them a couple of weeks ago at Target and am now completely obsessed. At first I just tried the Watermelon + Mint hand soap because the bottle looked really cool and it was priced well ($4.99 compared to the $12.95 hand soap I buy at Williams-Sonoma) and I am so glad I gave it a shot! The Raw Sugar soaps are not tested on animals and they are sulfate and paraben free. The Watermelon + Mint flavor literally smells like a jolly rancher when I was my hands, it’s amazing! Since I liked the hand soap so much, I decided to buy the body wash too and I love it! As I’ve gotten older, I have developed an allergy to sulfates and it has been challenging to find a sulfate-free body wash that actually cleans your body well and is not $30 or $40. At $6.99, the Raw Sugar body wash is fresh, chemical-free and cleans well with a beautiful summery scent.
I hope everyone has an incredible weekend and that you love my picks this week!
What a week it has been, friends! It is always kind of crazy coming back from vacation, but it feels like this week has just blown by! Although this week has been fast, it has also been filled with some amazing sales…from Tory Burch’s Semi-Annual Sale to Net-A-Porter’s major sale, we are in store for some great deals as we head into summer and I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites on the blog today.
For my picks this week I have to start right off with these pearl sunglasses. I ordered them in April and I just got them in the mail on Monday…I have not stopped wearing them and everywhere I go, I get SO many compliments!! From the dry cleaners to lunch with my girlfriends, everyone loves these sunglasses and are blown away when I tell them I got them from Amazon for $13.99!!
I am also so excited about the Tory Burch sale this week. Tory Burch clothing is some of my favorite–it is so well made, effortlessly chic and flattering. I do think her prices are a bit steep, but as soon as her clothes go on sale, I snatch them up! I am in love with the navy blue and white polka dot dress and these fish earrings are to die for! A couple of years ago, I bought a similar set of earrings from her, but they are gold dragonflies and I’m hoping I will love these fish just as much. They are such a steal at $75!
Net-a-Porter is also offering 50 percent off of hundreds of styles this week and some of my favorite designers are included in the sale! I live for Zimmerman and Ulla Johnson, but they are also brands I prefer to buy on sale. I am loving this peach Zimmerman dress with floral detailing, the cream puff-sleeve blouse from Ulla Johnson and this blue and white maxi dress from Ulla Johnson as well! They are all half-off right now so its a great time to buy and you have all summer to wear these beautiful pieces.
Aside from the sales, I have been crushing on this hot pink Free People Dress for a few Weeks and I think I just need to buy it! I am also loving the Tkees lace up sandals…I have a similar pair from Splendid that I bought a few years ago, but am in need of an update. If you are a Corkcicle fan, this confetti canteen is on sale at Nordstrom right now and is perfect for keeping your beverages cool in the summer heat. And last but not least, I have been using a sample of the Sisley Black Rose cream that I got a while ago for the past two weeks and I have seen a real difference in the firmness of my skin, it is a little pricey, but if you’re looking for a fabulous night cream like I have been, I would highly recommend this one!
Happy Friday, loves! This week I am at the beach and am sharing a few of my favorite items that I have been loving on our trip! We are in Watercolor, Florida and there are so many beautiful shades of green and blue here and that color palette has inspired most of my looks this week.
I have been wearing this Eugenia Kim Mirabel Hat every day on our trip and I am SO in love with it. I have wanted one of these hats for years, but just couldn’t bring myself to pay the full-price. Luckily, I was online the other day and got an alert that this beautiful hat with a mint ribbon was on sale so I jumped on it! I do love a good deal so while I was checking out, I googled “Eugenia Kim coupons” and a 20 percent off coupon popped up that actually worked so I got an additional 20 percent off of the already discounted price. I recommend doing this when you are shopping online because so many stores have extra coupons available and you can save yourself a lot of money.
I paired the hat with the Uber-popular Lyocell Caftan from H&M. I got this caftan on sale a couple of weeks ago for $17.99 and I am just blown away with how elegant and high-quality it is. I have also been wearing the Pamela Munson straw bucket bag non-stop and have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect summer bag and it actually holds quite a few items.
If you are looking for a fun and affordable pool float for the summer, look no further than this incredible peacock! We brought it to the beach and have had so much fun with it. It did take a while to blow up and I would highly recommend using a pump, but it is do-able to blow it up by yourself.
What are you loving for the beach this summer? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Happy Friday!! Who else is ready for this three-day weekend? I am so excited to relax a little bit this weekend, hang out with my husband and see my friends. But there are also some amazing deals happening online right now that you do not want to miss!
In addition to the major sales at Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue, I’m sharing some of my favorite things this week including a dress and swimsuit that are 60 percent off at J.crew right now!!
I hope you enjoy my picks this week and have a safe and fun long weekend!
Depending on where you live, you might be able to go out to brunch this weekend! Here in Texas, restaurants started opening last week and this weekend, I am ready for brunch! I’ve already made reservations at Clark’s in Austin and I’m a little too excited about getting a frozen cosmo and oysters.
Since it has been more than two months since I last had brunch, I have already started planning my outfits for this weekend. From flowy dresses to pastel-colored shorts, I’m sharing my favorite outfit options for this weekend!
Are you brunching this weekend?! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the looks and how it is to get back into the swing of things!
It’s peony season, y’all! These gorgeous rounded blooms are in season from April to June each year and I cannot get enough of them! In addition to my favorite flowers, Im sharing my obsessions from this week.
This Rosé All Day straw tote bag will be perfect for going to the beach or maybe just to your backyard this summer. I love the size of it and can’t wait to use it.
I just got this Tory Burch dress in the mail after buying it on the Nordstrom sale last week. I am in love with it. It reminds me of a tea party or a garden party…two of my favorite things of all time, so it is the perfect dress for me. I have baby showers on the brain right now because many of my friends are having babies right now and I think this will be the perfect dress to wear.
Bergdorf Blondes is one of my favorite books of all time and I just re-read it this week. The book was written by former contributing editor for Vogue, Plum Sykes and it is such a light and fun read. If you love fashion, aristocracy and all things fabulous, then you will love this book.
What a fun surprise we got this week with Nordstrom offering up to 60 percent off of selected styles! Unlike a regular sale, they are offering major discounts on new merchandise that will be perfect for spring and summer through May 3rd! In this post I have rounded up my favorite items from the sale.
Many of these items are also great Mother’s Day gifts, *hint, hint* so make sure you check them out soon to get them by May 10th.
