Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites

I’m sure you haven’t already heard, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went live today to cardholders! 😉  We actually just signed up for a Nordstrom card this year.  One of the biggest perks is that you are granted early access to the sale…a week earlier than the public! I am currently out of town, so I didn’t get to shop the sale in store, but have already placed a few orders because I keep finding so many great pieces!  Today, I am rounding up some of my favorites from the sale.  It can definitely be overwhelming filtering through page after page of the sale.  However, my biggest piece of advice is, if you see something you like, grab it while you can! Nothing haunts you more than something that sold out during the Anniversary Sale!  Trust me.  🙂

Floral Print Dress

Greetings from Maine! I have been a little quieter than normal on social media this week as I am trying to recover from traveling with toddlers unplug a little.  We escape to Maine every year as it is where my husband is from.  This year, it is an extra special trip as Charlotte and Hughie are in a wedding!  Charlotte is so excited about being a flower girl that she has asked me almost every day if she can practice.  She thinks that part of being a flower girl is wearing a dress with a floral print, so you can imagine her excitement when I put this dress on!

Current Statement Earring Favorites

Statement Earrings

If I had to pick my favorite jewelry to accessorize with, it would have to be statement earrings.  They are the perfect way to instantly dress up your outfit, and in most cases, you don’t have to worry about wearing any other accessories if you don’t want to.  Today, I am sharing some statement earrings that I am currently loving!

July 4th Sales

Monday, we meet again! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  It was the first weekend in a while that my husband hasn’t had to work, so we enjoyed lots of family time. I am keeping my posts relatively short this week as I’m sure most of you are gearing up for the 4th of July holiday, but I wanted to share some current sales going on!

June Favorites

June Favorites

I say this every time, but how has this month already flown by? It’s hard to believe that 2018 is halfway over.  However, I am fearfully confident that the months of July and August will move at a snails pace as the kids summer school days have come to an end. 😉  The days are long and the afternoons are hot! We tend to get a little stir crazy around here but for now, I’m going to remain positive. 🙂 So, let’s dive into a few products that I have been LOVING lately, shall we?

Blue Poplin Set

EP Blue Poplin Set

Happy Wednesday! You probably saw this look on instagram last week, but I wanted to share the rest of the photos as so many of you loved it! This look was actually featured in the High Heels and Hot Meals fashion show that I co-emceed earlier this month with Sam Stewart.  I loved it so much that I purchased it at the pop-up shops after the show.

How I Prepared to Co-Emcee High Heels and Hot Meals

White Dress

If you would have told me 6 months ago that I would be co-emceeing an event…on a microphone…in front of 150 people… I would have told you that you were crazy. When it comes to public speaking, I am as shy as they come.  I cried on the first day of school every year until 5th grade. I couldn’t go into my first Girl Scouts meeting growing up and the same with gymnastics or any other extra curricular activity that my parents signed me up for.  I suppose the thought of having to stand and introduce myself in front of a group of people made me a little anxious.  I partially grew out of that phase as a child, but I still consider myself to be more on the shy side.  So when Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County reached out to me about emceeing their event called “High Heels and Hot Meals”, for a moment I thought I was being punked.  Me? You want me? Are you sure you aren’t confusing me with someone else? My first thought was that there was no way I would be able to do it.  I honestly didn’t think I’d even be able to walk up to the microphone without fainting, much less actually speaking…in front of people.  If you’ve been following along, then you probably remember this post which goes a little more in depth about the event and all of the amazing things that Meals on Wheels does for our community.  But today, I’m going to share how I prepared for the event in hopes that it will inspire you to step out of your comfort zone.

The Best $10 I Ever Spent

Pink and Orange Coverup

You can’t buy a lot with $10 these days…but what if I told you that you can buy an amazing summer staple that can be worn multiple ways? Is it a dress? Is it a coverup? Is it a tunic? In my opinion it works as all three, and it’s probably the first piece I’ve ever owned that has had that many uses!
