Wear It Now

Wednesday has arrived in style and with ready-to-go pieces you can start wearing now.  While so many of us have been scooping up steals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it's also a perfect time to  grab the goods you want and need this very moment.  Here'a peek at what I'm thinking...

Velvet is what's what for the coming season of fall.  Its texture and luxe appeal will definitely have you reaching for it throughout autumn right on into the holidays.  But with it available in pretty summer shades like pink sorbet and lemonade and off the shoulder silhouettes, why not begin wearing it now?  This top is so cute paired with denim and heels and this embroidered cross body.  Really the simplest way to look chic while feeling completely relaxed and and comfortable.  I'm also all about these sweet and oh-so super soft pjs.  The ruffles are adorable and yet another way to look put together while feeling at home.  These earrings have such a fun summer feel and would be exactly what that white sundress has been begging for.  And last but never least, these Tory Burch nude sandals go everywhere and look great with it all.  

I hope everyone's having a fun week so far.  The east coast weather has been cloudy and cool but I have a feeling everything will be perfect once the weekend rolls around!  Enjoy the day!!

Cozy at Home

Happy Monday everyone!   A new week means a fresh slate and a clean canvas for building new dreams.  One wonderful way to do so is by beginning right at home.  I don't know about you all but I love a great clean out in any part of my home.  From closets to the kitchen, it's always a great way to re-evaluate what you want to keep, need to toss and have to refresh.  There are also some really wonderful online companies that can help with this as well as those that accept previously loved items that can find a new home and give back a percentage of the resell reward.  Two I've used are the widely known Poshmark and the lesser known Thred Up.  Both are easy to use and equally fun to shop.  I'm planning on adding some new items to my Poshmark coming soon.  You can shop my closet here.  And if you're ready to add some brand new items to your nest I've collected some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here today.  I always love looking around their home department all throughout the year.  And now that they're featuring the best of next season on sale the feeling's even sweeter.  This monogrammed cookbook stand is the perfect addition to the cooking girl's kitchen.  I love the colors and design.  I've also got my eye on this mirror.  The gold detailing is gorgeous and the style's perfect for nearly any room in your home.  I also love the geometric shape and how it adds so much interest to an otherwise typical piece.  These adorably happy little wine glasses are exactly what the poolside party wants and needs this summer.  Cheers!  

Hoping your Monday is off to a kickin'  start...Let's make it a great one.  Thanks so much for reading and I'll see you later this week!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty

Hello and happy Wednesday!  I've recently received many requests for the best beauty buys at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Nothing could make me happier of course as beauty is one of my favorite departments and always so much fun got shop.  Today I'm answering that with this post featuring my top picks in beauty all on sale now at the Nord's bonanza.  One great place to start with beauty (even if you're not into lotions, potions and age-reversing devices) is with this anti-aging pure silk pillowcase.  We all sleep so might as well make it work for you.  The smooth silk fibers are super easy on your hair and keep you from the perils of bedhead and split ends.  They also leave you without any pillow wrinkles when you awake (that alone is worth the price of admission, ha!).  Most importantly to me, these pillowcases are far less absorbent than the standard cotton version so they won't drink up all your luscious night cream because that is your face's job!  That said, get the cases and you'll thank me in the morning :).  I'm also a huge fan of at home devices that care for your skin and take years off your face.  With the amount of growth and development the beauty industry has seen in recent years, these hand held treatments can pretty much give you the kind of results that were once only available by appointment and doing it for a fraction of the cost.  My personal favorite is the   NuFace.  This micro-current device works the muscles on your face while stimulating the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is essentially energy for your cells.  From there comes the much craved increase in firmness, tissue repair and circulation all of which equal a youthful, gorgeous radiant glow!  It's currently more than $100 off as long as the sale (and supplies) last.  I say give it a try your skin will thank me in the months to come.  Lastly, this handheld hero has been a part of my daily routine since last year's Nsale and I can tell you my complexion has never been this clear, toned and well-cared for.  The Foreo LUNA 2 has made such a difference in my skin and how gently cleansed it is.  Great skin begins with a clean canvas and this device gets rid of dirt, debris and pore-clogging potentials without disturbing the skin's surface or causing micros coping tears in the dermis.  Needless to say...I love it!  

I could go on for days about every item I adore and why but that would take a while, haha.  So I figured you know your skin and beauty needs best and can have fun checking out all the items I've linked for you below.  I hope you're enjoying this incredible sale as much as I am.  Here's to a lovely day of beauty!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What's Hot

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the fresh week ahead.   As promised last time, I'm back with more of my favorite picks from the NSale that I've scooped up and still hope to score.  I'm telling you guys, this sale is amazing and probably my favorite of all to shop (and that is saying a lot, haha!).  Ok so, with so many items to pursue and steals to scoop up this one requires a strategic plan.   A great idea to help with that is to take inventory of your closet and categorize things into wearable and will be, needs to be refreshed and never gonna see the light of day.  Then take note of what your go-to pieces are and which will get the most mileage next season and stake your claim there.  For me, tops and sweaters are my weakness (or at least one of them) and I love buying pieces that I can wear three ways and that will give me the most for my money.  These pieces featured here are some of the best I saw both in store and online and can work so many ways from casual to date night as well as somewhere in between.  This cold shoulder ruffle top is the perfect example of doing that.  It can go so sweetly with jeans, tall boots and a crossbody, paired with a pencil skirt or dressed up with a sexy trouser and your favorite heels.  I also love the sleeve detail on this one and its feminine appeal.  It'll definitely catch your guy's eye when he sees you.  There are also a ton of accessories and beauty must-haves that can't be missed and that I've linked below for you.  More on those another time.  Until then you can shop my picks via the thumbnails below and please, let me know what you to hear all about your picks too!  Happy savings!
