Post All About Me

Today I felt inclined to write a little post about me, get a little personal with you.   I don’t know if it is because of the upcoming holidays or the family pictures we had taken last week.  I felt like I wanted to share more about my personal life, which I usually keep very private.

Nordstrom Try-On

The Nordstrom public access starts tomorrow at 3AM EST.  Yay!!  I am so happy lots of items will get restocked in time for everyone is going to be able to shop some great items.  Time to stock up for fall/winter for the family.

I am sharing some items I have gotten in below.  But I also shared in my last post all of my favorites from the sale, so go here to check out that list.

Below are a few try on pictures with sizing and links to each item from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

BP Cocoon Cardigan – wearing an XXS in Brown Cattail – got the XXS for a more tailored fit, for a looser fit get your normal size

BP Raw Edge Tee – wearing an XS in white – comes in several colors, the white is a little sheer so you will have to wear a nude color bra with the white

BlankNYC Faux Leather Jacket – wearing a XS in Black – mine is from last year and this year they came out with the same jacket just with a detachable hood

BP Raw Edge Tee – wearing an XS  in white (same one from above picture) – comes in several colors

Jeans – mine are old but here are some similar ones that are on sale from Nordstrom

Sneaker Wedges – Mine are not from Nordstrom but here are some similar ones that are on sale from Nordstrom

Topshop Sweatshirt – wearing a 6 in light pink

Alo High Waist airbrush Leggings – wearing a M in black glossy – suck you in and have a sheen finish to them.  They are a cropped length and I am 5’5″ and love where they hit on my legs.

Nike Sneakers – Not from Nordstrom

Socialite Thermal Henley – wearing an XS in Oatmeal – could have done a small for a looser fit – but I like the fitted look of the XS

BP Textured Knit Sweater – wearing a XS in the Dark Charcoal color – you could size up for a looser fit or to wear off the shoulder more


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

A few days into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I have placed 2 orders so far.  I was in search of basics and this sale is perfect for stocking up on those for the fall/winter.  So many good buys and I love that the sale is new fall stuff that has not been released.  Most sales are done to get rid of past season stock to prepare for the next season.  I love a good deal/sale and love that this sale is allowing me to get some good fall items at a discount now before I need them, rather then after the season has past.

Here are my picks, some I have already purchased and some are in my cart/on my wish list.  Can’t wait to get all my stuff in the mail and share with you.



What girl doesn’t love shoes?  Especially when they are shoes that are on sale.

My favorite shoe retailer, DSW, is having a big summer sale and today is the last day to shop the sale.  If you haven’t heard about the sale here are the details:  use code YAYDAYS and get 20% off your order.  Easy as that.  And while there if you haven’t signed up for their new VIP program make sure you do so you can earn rewards and get the scoop on all the upcoming sales.  Once you spend a certain amount you get free shipping.  Otherwise shipping is free if you spend over $35.

I have linked a few of my favorites, some I have and some are on my wish list.  Sale ends tonight so don’t wait to grab your favs and get 20% off.

If you have questions about sizing or anything please message me and let me know.  And if you buy any of my favorites tag me on Instagram.  I love seeing your pictures.

Have a great Tuesday.


White Denim Shorts + Casual Tee

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend recouping from the mid week holiday.  My week was all thrown off with the Wednesday holiday.  Even my boys were confused on what day it was.  This weekend we relaxed and stayed home.  Sometimes those are good weekends though.

Summer time for me I live in shorts and t-shirts and either comfy sneakers or sandals.  Anyone else?  I just don’t think you can’t go wrong with this look.

My look today is super casual and a great weekend look.  My white raw hem shorts have been one of my favorite white denims I have found.  I love the length and the raw hem adds the distressing that I love without being too destroyed (like a lot of my other denim).  And the best part they are only $17.  They have some good stretch to them and I actually went down one size from my normal size.

My tee is super comfy and cute.  I love the ringer style, kinda gives off a retro vibe to me.  I did size up in this tee, I am wearing a medium, because I wanted a little bit of a looser fit.  But if you want a fitted look, I would say stick with your normal size.

And my Adidas have been on repeat a lot this summer!  I love them and they are a very comfortable sneaker.  I will say to size down 1/2 a size because they do run big.  And I wear a no show sock with mine just to keep the insides of the shoe fresh (lol).

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!  If you have any questions about this look or any other my looks, message me and I will be glad to help you.



Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

It is that time of year again!  Time to prepare for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  If you have shopped the sale in the past then you might already know all the details, but for those of you who are new to shopping this sale I am going to share with you all the details you need to know.


  • July 12-19 – Early Access for Nordstrom Cardholders – lots of items sell out during this time so you want to shop during this time for the best selection.  Some stuff might get restocked but you just don’t know.  Sign up here to get your Nordstrom Card, you DON’T have to use the card at check out just have to have one to shop early access.
  • July 20 – August 5 – Open to the public.
  • The sale will start at 3AM EST online so if you want the best selection shop early and either pick up in store or have it mailed to you.  You can shop in store but stores won’t open until normal time.


  • There is a catalog available online (here) now this is just a small taste of what will be on sale.  But this will give you an idea of the discounts available during the sale.
  • Start thinking about what you might need for fall/winter.  This sale is geared for the upcoming season, not summer stuff.  This is when I usually stock up on a good pair of booties, some cardigans and jeans.  All the basics!  And don’t forget about home stuff too, there will be lots of options there too.
  • I recommend setting a budget now on what you want to spend, this is the difficult part for me!  With all the discounted stuff it is hard to not over spend.  So grab a pen and paper and make a list and stick to the list and your budget.  I need a lot of things but do I really need them all?

I will be posting here on the blog, Instagram Stories and on my Facebook page, if you have questions about what I am posting please let me know.  I am here to help you and help with the madness that is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Bloggers love this sale and I promise you will be tired of hearing about it after a few days of starting.  I know I can get that way and I am a blogger.  I do make a small commission if you use any of my links to purchase something.  Not only from this sale but any outfit I post.  So thank you for using my links I really appreciate it and it helps me provide useful content like this to my readers.

I will be posting throughout the sale so if there is something in particular you are looking for please let me know.  I want to make this easy for all of you and customize it to each of you.

Happy Shopping
