It's a miracle - I have a new blog post up!! First things first, I did not mean to take such a long hiatus from posting on here. The truth is that June/the last few weeks have been nuts for me! This time of year is the absolute busiest at my day job, and on top of that we were traveling a good bit of June on the weekends so time just got away from me! However, if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been posting A LOT and keeping up with my outfit photos on there. So, be sure to follow along on insta, as I try to post a new photo daily! 

Whew - onto the good stuff! It's the best time of year with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicking off today for cardholders. I am trying to make it a point this year to not just buy stuff because it's on sale, but to find a few items that are staples that I know I will truly get my wear out of come Fall and Winter.

Above are my top ten clothing and shoe picks from the sale (plus my favorite bra)! The beauty section is actually one of my favorite parts of the sale, but I will save that for a separate post! 

Lastly, below I am sharing a few other things that are sitting in my cart as well! Happy shopping!! XO

Ruffled Wrap Dress

The type of dress you can literally wear anywhere - on a vacation, to work, for date night, or even to a wedding! Getting the most bang for your buck out of a dress is the best. This dress also comes in a navy floral pattern and the prettiest shade of red! I have been so drawn to this shade of green this year (last seen here) that I couldn't pass it up! Make a statement by pairing a bold, gold pair of earrings with this midi to complete the look!

I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend! We are headed to Mississippi to visit my family, and I am so very excited! I only get home literally about twice a year... it can be so hard but it makes me appreciate the time I do get to spend with my family that much more! Have a fun weekend and please stay safe everyone!! Lots of love! XO

My Favorite Rompers For Summer!

Romper (also comes in yellow!) | Sandals | Sunglasses | Bag

I absolutely LOVE rompers! However, finding them to fit my tall frame can be tricky! Secondly, let's just lay it all out there... trying to go to the bathroom in one at an event can be tricky. Regardless, I still love everything about them! It's like a one and done type of outfit, and I'm always into that. So, when I tried this little romper on at Nordstrom and the fit was spot on I just had to have it. I was a little nervous about the tie front combined with the cutout, but it hits high enough that it flatters the mid-section! Trust me, if I can pull it off then you can! Below, I am sharing some of my favorites that I've found online!! XO

Lilac Love

Dress (love this romper version in red and this dress!!)
Sandals | Bag | Sunglasses | Earrings

Happy Thursday, y'all! I know it's been a little bit since I've posted, and I had every intention of posting on the blog during our trip to California last week, but I got caught up in the moment and just wanted to enjoy our time there! Coming back to work this week has been ROUGH!! I hope you were able to follow along on Instagram last week, and I've been sharing some photos from our trip on there this week as well, so be sure you are following along here!

I had to share this dress with y'all today though! It's such a steal, the color is gorgeous, and the cut is so flattering!! This lilac/lavender color is everywhere this season, and it's seriously so flattering on! I paired these adorable Sugarfix earrings by Baublebar (be sure to check out their display in your local Target!). They have some really cute and SUPER affordable jewelry for all of your Summer outfits!

P.S. - This dress keeps going in and out of stock!!! Forgive me! When I finished writing this post last night, it was sold out! However, checking back this morning, it looks like there are a few sizes left! So, keep checking if you are interested and your size isn't available! I am linking two similar options from the same brand above (a romper version of this dress in red and another option I love!!) so be sure to check those out!! Lots of love! XO

Asymmetrical Dress or Trench

Trench DressTank
I purchased these denim shorts last year at Target and seriously love them, but obviously can't find them online anymore! I'm linking a similar pair here though for under $50!

I originally ordered this "trench dress" to wear as just that, a dress. However, to be completely honest, when I got it in the mail I just didn't love how it looked on me when worn as a dress. So, that made me get creative! I adore the asymmetrical hem on it combined with the short sleeves, which makes it a great layering piece for this time of year. I decided to pair it over my staple white tank and favorite denim shorts to create an elevated city chic, summer look. Wearing a long duster, trench, or kimono over shorts in the warmer months can make you feel covered and not so exposed while keeping your proportions in line. Try grabbing a shirt dress from your closet to create a similar look as seen here!

PS - This piece is a part of Chriselle Lim's line with J.O.A. at Nordstrom, and every single item from the line is fabulous! I am linking a few other pieces I'm obsessed with below! XO

What I'm Packing & Where We're Going!!

I mentioned in Wednesday's post that we are headed to California at the end of next week, so I thought I would do a different type of post on the blog today talking all about what I'm packing and where we're headed! The picture above was taken in November on the last trip we took to South Africa, which to this day is one of my favorite places I've ever visited in the world. It was a truly life changing experience visiting that part of the world and seeing all of the animals out in the wild. More on that later, but let's get to our upcoming trip - CALIFORNIA! In May of 2016, we visited San Francisco and Napa with friends, which also happened to coincide with my 30th birthday! It's a trip I will never forget, and I highly recommend taking a wine country trip with a group of friends - SO much (maybe a little too much) FUN! 

Since that trip, we have wanted to go back to California and visit. I am one hundred percent a warm weather and sunshine type of girl. You probably laugh as you read that because who isn't?! But, I truly feel like I thrive in an environment that's sunny, warm, and full of gorgeous greenery! So, to say that I'm excited for this trip is an understatement! We are flying into San Francisco (Buddy's one request for the trip so that we can attend a baseball game) where we will spend two nights, then we are renting a car and making our way down the coastline, stopping at Big Sur (and who else knows where along the way), then making a stop in Laguna Beach for two nights, then finally LA for the remainder of the trip! 

I have a running list of restaurants, hotels, and places that I want to see after scouring my bestie's LA City Guide, which you can find here! I've mentioned Holly's website, The Hollyday, before on this blog, but her LA City Guide has been a lifesaver for me with this trip ahead of us! If there are any other spots or recommendations you have in mind, please do share and comment below or on my latest Instagram post! I would love to hear from you!! 

Below, I am sharing some things that I plan to take with me for the trip! I've been shopping for weeks, and I can't wait to share some great content with you all from our travels! XO

Kimono Love

Kimono | White Jeans | Sandals | Tank | Bag

I picked up this kimono a few weeks ago from Bloomingdale's, and I've been dying to pull it out ever since! I was planning to save it for our trip to California next week (which I can't wait to share more about!), but last week when it was warm here I decided it was time to bust it out! Yellow is a color that seriously makes me happy! This kimono screams all things Spring and Summer, and it would be so fabulous styled over a bathing suit, too, as a coverup on your next beach vacay! This particular design is also available in a dress, which you can shop here! I adore the dress version even more! Below, I am linking some other fun kimonos that I found at all different price points! Happy shopping! XO
