The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is one of my favorite sales of the year! Nordstrom has marked down tons of their spring summer styles up to 40% off! Some of my favorite brands like Madewell, Marc Fisher, Free People, Kate Spade, Levi’s and more are included! Me Easter dress from earlier this year is marked down and my favorite leather tote is also $53 off today, so snatch up these goodies if you have been eyeing them! Shop my favorites from the sale below:
You guys know how much I love shopping at the LOFT. They kill it with their new arrivals every single week! I have been loving all the bright colors for summer and this beautiful dress is no exception. If you are wanting to add a little color to your wardrobe this summer, this is a great option! I love how light and easy it is, but this colorful striped dress is under $50! Yes, you read that right!
It is finally feeling like summertime in Alabama! I absolutely love it. What I don’t love? It going from 50 degrees to 90 overnight…literally. BUT, I am thankful it is warm and staying warm because my kids will be out of school as of tomorrow afternoon, so I am seeing a bunch of pool days in our near future! Speaking of pool days, don’t forget to check out my post on teaching your children how to swim! It has a great resource with tons of tips! Anyone else teaching their kids to swim this summer? It is a daunting task. We tried to teach Hampton last summer, but he spent the majority of the season absolutely scared to death of the water. This is the year!
I get so excited when I find a good dupe for a designer bag that I love. I am not one to drop several hundred $$$ on a bag. I’d rather make an extra car payment than do that. So, when I found this dupe for the Clare V. bag that I have been loving for the last 2 years, I knew I had to have it. Straw bags are all the rage and this one is only $48 and by a GREAT (and one of my favorite) brands. That makes it a dream come true. When it’s a brand you love and trust and they make the perfect dupe? Snag it up! I had a similar straw tote bag from the same retailer last year and absolutely wore it to death. I still wear it occasionally and it held up great considering I wore it nearly every day during the spring and summer. Straw bags are such a great spring and summer staple and a big trend again this year. They are everywhere, but here are a few that won’t break the bank.
I look forward to this Shopbop sale every year! It is so good because there are so many great brands (that never go on sale) included. For example, Tory Burch Miller Sandals, Hunter Boots, the holy grail mom jeans, and more: All. On. Sale! So, if you have been wanting to stock up on some Madewell Tees or splurge on some cute espadrilles, now is a great time to buy. Everything is 20% off unless you spend $500, then you get 25% off with code EVENT18! Also, if you have Amazon Prime, you will love this sale because Shopbop is owned by Amazon and you get prime shipping! It’s so good, y’all!
After recently talking to my cousin and a couple of friends, I have realized how much of a struggle it is to find good, mom friendly swimsuits these days. So many swimsuits that popular retailers are making are not padded or offer little to no support. They are also very unflattering or cut funny and definitely not designed for a postpartum or “mom-bod”. Not that a “mom-bod” is a bad thing, but I think we can all agree that our bodies don’t ever really go back to how they were before. Not completely, anyway. They are forever changed – and for a good reason. You housed and nourished a human being for 9 months. That is no small feat.
Hey guys! Well, it’s official! Another year has come and gone. I turned twenty-nine, yesterday! The last year of my twenties, and I intend to make it a good one! I celebrated in my favorite new Free People dress! I have held out all spring and summer for this beauty and finally took the plunge and bought it! I’m so glad I did because it is absolutely beautiful. It does run a little big (I’m wearing an XS) so size down one size. It is so comfortable and great for weddings, church or – birthdays!
Happy Monday, friends! We are recovering from another busy weekend and I have officially torn our house apart trying to go through our house and purge! Does anyone else do that right before school starts? I feel like the fall and holiday seasons are going to be insanely busy this year and I am trying to get it all knocked out before then. For some, summer is coming to an end, but for those of us in the south, we still have two to three more months of summer weather. Summer fashion is so much fun! I love that you can wear frilly dresses, white, bright colors, tanks, shorts, skirts, hats, sandals and the list goes on. I have been really excited to share this post with some of my favorite summer fashion staples that I purchased this year! These are things I have worn many times and have absolutely loved!
We just got back from our trip to Jacksonville late Monday. We had so much fun visiting my family there. As my grandparents get older, it is more and more important for me to go often and I have tried to do a better job of that. It is a long road trip with our little ones, but it is more than worth it! I got to do a little Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping whole there, and I can’t wait to show you a couple of things I got in the store!
Happy Monday! No weekend update, today. We basically cleaned, hosted a cookout for my mom’s birthday Friday night, went to a kid’s birthday party on Saturday and did a lot of laundry, but I feel like I am starting off on a clean slate. There is something about a (semi-) clean house that get’s me all excited and ready for the week! Today, I want to tell you guys about a few things you need to know about this week. I did this a couple of months ago, and y’all really enjoyed it, so I wanted to do another! Here we go!
First off, Amazon Prime Day starts TONIGHT at 8p.m. EST. I can’t wait to see the deals and will let you guys know about my favorites! I’m not sure if I’m going to write a dedicated blog post on them yet or not, but I might decide to if it is too good to handle.
