Nordstrom Anniersary Sale: Purchases and Still Wanting…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So I decided to breakdown and do some shopping for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…at first there wasn’t anything that I HAD to have…I live in Florida…we don’t really have a season change so it’s really hard to shop and want all this fall stuff but I have to be practical sometimes. Plus, I’m trying to LEARN HOW TO SAVE MY $$$ (talk about hard to do).

what i purchased:

  1. lounge pants $29.90 because they just looked so unbelievably comfortable and like something I could pair with a white tank and sneakers
  2. hanky panky low rise thong well for starts it’s 4 for $54 you don’t pass up a deal like this ever especially when it’s the only brand of undies you wear. Stuff gets old and it’s time to toss out undies so why not replenish your drawer when the sale comes around
  3. foreo luna facial cleansing brush $70…Y’ALL I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS. I’ve been using the Clarisonic (on sale too) for 6 years and I’ve been curious about this facial brush so I finally decided to breakdown and get it. I read the reviews and everyone said they like it better than the clarisonic…hoping that’s the case for me. It’s better for sensitive skin too.
  4. cross front swing top $21.90…this just looks really comfortable and like an easy top to pair with all different bottoms…white jeans, black jeans, denim shorts, any color shorts…etc.
  5. cowl neck swing dress $24.90…this is a really great transitional piece for me in Florida. Sleeveless but with the added cowl neck it makes it fall-like. and it has POCKETS..who doesn’t love those in a dress?

what i still want:

  1. lace trim peplum top…it’s just so beautiful and staple that will most likely stay in mine or yours closet forever BUT I just can’t spend that much money right now…(remember trying to be responsible)
  2. addidas superstar white sneakers…i’ve wanted a pair of these since i lived in NYC but I never got around to it and I still lust over them everytime I see them
  3. fox fur trim parka…this thing is BEAUTIFUL like gorgeous but I have ZERO need for it…I mean maybe if I lived back in NYC or out West but a girl can still dream
  4. high neck one piece…another forever staple in the swimsuit drawer. I love the print and style…not too modest but still stylish
  5. nars cheek palette…i don’t need it but I want it because I’m a Nars junkie…
  6. cutout booties…honestly, i will probably breakdown and end up buying these because well they’re just so damn cute and I can get away with wearing them in FL
  7. split neck shift dress…I love a good white dress and this is really nice and casual
  8. mixed leopard printed scarf.…i don’t own a single thing leopard print. i’ve never been into animal prints really but this I am a fan of!

Still reminiscing about Utah with so many more outfits to share from my trip. This was one of my favorites…I love this top but make sure you size up because it’s snug in the arms. It’s also eyelet so it’s see-thru. I put a white koobie under mine 🙂

white dresses:

I’m back from Utah and not very happy about it. The scenary there was absolutely unreal. Not to mention the gorgeous weather and zero humidity. Everyone there is so fit and active it made me jealous and promise to myself that I would start running more (as I’m sitting in my workout clothes on the couch complaining about how hot it is here to myself). It was so nice to just spend time and take in the mountains with my family.

My favorite part was fly fishing. I had never done it until this trip and let me tell you it is so relaxing and peaceful…now I know why so many people do it out there. It really keeps your mind working too and is quite the arm workout I can’t wait to do it again!

dress: T+C by Theodora & Callum // wedges: K. Jacques // clutch: Gigi New York // necklace: Southern Sequins //

This is one of my ALL TIME favorite dresses that I own. I got it last year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have honestly worn it about 20 times since owning it.

So with that being said the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 begins July 22nd – August 7th. However, if you register early and have a Nordstrom Credit Card or Debit card you will receive early access to the sale starting July 14th-21st. Something I highly recommend. During this sale Nordstrom releases some of the latest and greatest items for Fall to carry you through the season on major markdowns. I know it seems wild to shop for fall in the summer but you will snag some major pieces that you can wear throughout the season. Last year I purchased this dress, OTK boots, Hanky Panky undies and some new makeup.

Last Saturday morning I met up with some local Treasure Coast bloggers at Lemon Tree…one of my favorite breakfast spots in Vero! Jayne of The Southern Perfectionist, Jess of Hightailing in High Heels, Marianne of The Happy Closet, and y’all know Christina, my BFF behind Southern Sequins. We brunched in our favorite looks from All For Color and Southern Sequins. We shared lots of laughs, blogging info, some wedding chat and cruised down Ocean Drive.

Such a fun group of girls and I look forward to doing this again in the near future. If you’re in the Treasure Coast area we’d love to have you join us 🙂

Briar is a little over 7 months now…everytime someone asks me I always manage to say she’s over 7 weeks…and then I’m like wait that’s not right. But deep down I wish she was still that little 7 week old puppy I picked up in December in Alabama that used to wake me up in the middle of the night to go potty. She’s grown way too fast but she’s also grown into the sweetest and smartest little dog. Briar LOVES anything to do with water…but of course, not when it comes to bath time. Running around and being crazy and eating bones. She’s also a total social butterfly and has to say hi to whatever crosses her path.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

You know when you find a dress and you can’t stop wearing it? Well the last few dresses I have purchased have turned into those dresses including the one I have on. Breathable, light and airy fabric are what I live for in this humid summertime heat. I can’t even explain how misreable it is. But I absolutely love this dress I have on because I can wear it casually or dressed up like in my photos.
