I tried on those Vince booties (but really they’re “shooties”) today and they didn’t look that cute on me. But omg they’re so stinkin’ cute though! If you have long, skinny legs (maybe without huge calves), I would totally go buy them right them second. Just a thought.
I mean…do I even need to comment on the cute-ness of this dress? And it’s $52. Yeah. I know, right? Isn’t it insanely adorable?! #ObsessionAtFirstSight
and I love that it’s a fit-and-flare because I feel like that’s one of the most flattering cuts. It also comes in a pretty yellow color (which I may or may not have in my backseat trying to figure out if I want to keep it or not…)
TWO [Set of 4 Hanky Panky Panties] – because when could you not use a fresh pair of these things? Maybe I’m alone here (quite possibly), but these are all I wear. Personally, I find them extremely comfortable. And yes I know they’re super expensive, but y’all…you wear underwear every single day so it only makes sense to invest in them…right? Needless to say, I always jump on the opportunity when they’re on sale! Also, these make a great gift for someone you know is also a big fan.
THREE [‘Purity’ Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser Duo] – I started using this in February after I bought a mini bottle for my trip to Milan. I knew I’d be gone for several weeks and wanted something that could cleanse, tone, and remove makeup (basically a great all-in-one) and I totally fell in love! This stuff not only works well, but it smells nice and fresh!
FIVE [La Mer Cream ] – I’ve never tried the famous ‘La Mer‘ but I figured I’d include it for those of you who do because I’ve heard it’s wonderful?
SEVEN and TWENTY [Gorjana hoop earrings and gold cuff] – I have their gold cuff from last year and wear it all the time! I love the design of this newer version and know I would wear it just as often. Also, I like these hoop earrings and how they face the front and are super thin! They’re be great basics!
Continue after the jump for more details on these products (and also for the shoppable collage with clickable products)!
Pale pink and sky blue – what a color combo! I’m loving it and actually just any pastels paired together in general.
This dress though. I love the way it fits – it’s perfect. It kind of looks like a romper, but it’s not (which I like because I think dresses are more flattering!) It’s by Topshop, so it’s UK sizing (I’m wearing size US2) – I do feel like it would be too short on someone taller than like…five seven? Or maybe I’m wrong. Thoughts?
And I’m not sure how I feel about this lip color (YSL No. 22) – I feel like it maybe makes my teeth look yellow? ha! Or idk, maybe you have to have different skin tone to wear it? What do you think? Have you tried this color before? The lady at the makeup counter told me it was a big color for this summer…but I’m still iffy about it! Please weigh in…
Oh and I don’t really want to tell you this, but I feel like I should (because maybe it will help you! hehe). The reason why I look somewhat/quasi tan here is because I used my all time favorite self-tanner: St. Tropez. There’s actually a value set on sale right now as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Have you tried it? I LOVE it! The only issue (I guess, when compared to other self-tanning solutions) is that it doesn’t really last that long. But I think it lasts long enough; and plus it doesn’t really smell as bad as the others, so I don’t mind applying it once or twice a week if I have something going on. Also, they make stuff specially for the face, but I just use the mousse all over my body and face and it works fine for me.
As promised via my instagram from earlier today, here’s the exact round up I included with click-able product links! I went to Nordstrom in Dallas this morning to see if I could try on a few of these items and get a better idea of size and fit.
I wasn’t able to find everything, but I did come across almost all of these items! The one thing I would suggest (sizing-wise) is that if you’re considering the striped tee on the bottom left, size up. It’s mostly made of cotton, so there isn’t much stretch to it and the arms can be a little tight. But for a $12 tee, it’s pretty legit!
Hi friends! I absolutely love love love this top. And yeah, I know…I say that a lot. But this one really is a good one (and I think the price makes it even better).
But these shorts – they’re probably the only shorts that I actually feel quasi-confident; something about the way they’re cut makes them wearable and somehow shave off about 5 pounds (cha ching!).
No but really, I have them in denim too and love them. They’re sold out most of the time and are only in stock for a few weeks before selling out again (hot commodity). But the good news is, I just checked #AllTheWebsites one last time and found they were just restocked at shopbop (they run true to size)! yahoo!
woohooo yay! I finally finished putting this post together. I have no idea why it took me so long, but I think I did just about everything I could do…BUT get this post finished.
Heck, I even cleaned my room yesterday. Like, what? and sorry for the annoying snapchats…ha, I was kind of delirious :)
Do you have a Nordstrom card? you’re going to want to get one. like, now. Because all the good stuff will probably be gone by the time this sale opens to the public…
So this is just round one of my picks! There is SO MUCH good stuff that it’s like black-friday-overwhelming. A lot of the really good stuff is pretty FALL-ish but the markdown is so great (And it’s all BRAND NEW stuff…) that it’s so hard NOT to just stock up NOW. But there’s also some good year-round stuff too.
I may or may not have waited until the last minute to put this post together. Ooops. But oh well, it happens. Sometimes I’m a total star-blogger when it comes to my ‘editorial calendar’ and what’s up next (keyword: sometimes). But lately, I have been flying by the seat of my pants. And so it’s 8 ish AM for the third time this week and I don’t have a post up (I guess I’ve just been having too much fun – insert sassy emoji girl here…ha)
But hey, there’s always next week, right?
So today is a BIG day for the internet world because the huge-crazy-huge Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts today – but only for card members. Do you have a Nordstrom card? If so, then you’re probably already well aware of this thing. But if you don’t, it might be worth getting so you can shop this sale before the general public does. Anyway, I’ll be working all day on putting together some product round ups of my favorite picks (you an sign up to get my posts in your inbox at 10 AM each morning so you don’t miss all my picks!)
But first, coffee!
Oh, and about this maxi dress…I think it goes without saying that this is a total winner – for all the same reasons that I always preach (aka comfy, easy, well-priced and lots of wearability). In other words, it’s a no-brainer right?! Do you have a good black maxi in your closet? But I think this one is better because of the synched waist and the hi-low hem…just sayin’
Sometimes I feel like my blog should be called the oversized-tee-and-jeans-blog. I know I (well at least I try to) post a variety of different outfits ranging from daytime casual to nighttime cocktail, but I definitely gravitate towards my everyday go-to: a laid back tee and jeans.
It doesn’t matter if it’s freezing or scorching outside, I usually always feel like wearing something comfy and larger-ish on top with skinnies (aside from an occasional craving to wear a loose dress to deal with summer heat).
I love the simple cut of this coral sleeveless dress and the fact that it’s sleeveless, but I think I love the color of it the most. It’s such a perfect shade of coral for summer and perfectly matches that new lipstick shade I’ve been talking about (No. 52)!
This past week has been a fun one. I spent less time working and more time AWAY from my computer. It was a much-needed luxury and I really appreciated getting away for a little bit.
I organized my room and cleaned out my closet a little bit because things were starting to get a little too cluttered for my liking. And then I ended the week with the best fourth of july weekend spent on the lake with friends and lots of good yummy food. No joke, I ate 6 burgers this weekend. wowza.
As always, feel free to ask anything I might have missed or forgotten to include details.
Some of you were asking about how I spend time with the Lord and what it ‘looks’ like (e.g., what I read, what I write, what I think about, how I pray, etc.) And in an effort to give you a little glimpse into this part of my life, I thought I would share this simple yet exciting experience that came from reading the first chapter of John.
My quiet time always looks different – sometimes it’s stale, sometimes it’s super short and then sometimes (responsibility permitting) it can last all day long. This particular experience, as you’ll see, was more of a learning/discovery journey for me.
Feeling super preppy over here in my hot pink and scallops, but then again I’m a big supporter of (mostly) all things prepster.
But let’s talk about this skirt y’all, I LOVE it and am so tempted (!) to buy it in the black. It’s rare that I find a skirt that I love a lot, but this one is great. The only thing is that it runs a little small; I’m wearing a US size 2 but I think it’s too tight (I would go up to US size 4 if I were to buy again…but I ordered online and was too lazy to exchange…ha)
