Summer is starting to come to an end (que the sad face emoji) but who am I kidding this is Florida… summer is practically 365 days a year here! I’ve got a few looks to share with y’all before I start to do some transitional pieces which is actually really hard to do when the weather is always 80 degrees and you’re sweatin’
I still have a few more looks from Utah to share…I haven’t wanted to post everything all at once so I’ve been taking it slow. So aside from another look that I’ve yet to share this is by far one of my favorite outfits that I wore in Utah. For me, it’s all about being laid back, comfortable and stylish. Like I’ve said a million times before boots and jeans are my ABSOLUTE favorite thing to wear ever. I think it’s my inner equestrian that brings that out but I love it. I was so in my element style wise out in Utah…wish the weather in Florida was cooler so I could dress like this in the summer!
If y’all know anything about me you know that my FAVORITE color is GREEN. So when I saw this dress I was in love with it. At first, I was going to style it all fancy which can clearly be done but instead I decided to bring it to Utah with me and dress it down…Utah laid back style. Now my earrings added some fancy but my jean jacket and cowboy boots made it laidback for a casual outting. I could have done the earrings, dress and a pair of nude heels and make it fancy but let’s face it I’m pretty casual and not a heel girl.
Good news though..this dress is up for pre-order right now and will ship out August 15th..bad news….it’s only avaliable in black because this color way was so popular. But that’s okay because everyone needs multiple LBD’s in their closet!

These cowboy boots have seen so many Alabama game days over the last 5 years. I’d say it is probably time for a new pair but I also consider them lucky. Now if you’re from the one and only place to be…aka THE SOUTH and an SEC Fan than Saturday’s are the most important day of your life in the fall. At least they are to me and everyone that I know.
Alabama Game Day is only 37 days away and I’m already starting to prepare for it. In Tuscaloosa, AL you’ll see most girls in cowboy boots or sandals and usually in anything red (crimson), white, grey, or black and fully accessorized. When it starts to get cooler you’ll start to see jean jackets, barbours or burberrys along with boots and booties..even sometimes sweaters. But my favorite game day outfit past time is a nice casual dress (like the one I’m wearing) because trust it can get HOT in that stadium and Alabama doesn’t start to cool down until late October. This Jane Hudson dress is made from a spandex blend making it extremely light weight and even more comfier making it the perfect dress for Saturday’s In The South!
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:
lounge pants $29.90 because they just looked so unbelievably comfortable and like something I could pair with a white tank and sneakers
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
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.
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.
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:
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)
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 🙂

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!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is FINALLY here and these are all of my favorite picks: Now don’t forget this is for Early Access only…so those that don’t have a Nordstrom Card you can get an idea on all the things … Continue reading →
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.
