Good Morning Everyone! I know you all probably got up super early like I did to check out the Nordstrom Sale. Today’s post is my first and probably largest instagram roundup. I’ve linked up everything available below and even some dupes and alternate options for things that are a little older or just sold out. There are some big deals to catch today so I’m going to stop gabbing and go “Add to Cart, Add to Cart” !
Good Morning everyone! Are you awake yet? I have to say I’m doing preeeeeettyyy good after my XL dose of caffeine this AM. I have to confess, this morning I hit snooze just one too many times and didn’t have time to take the long way (via Starbucks) into work. Desperate for a morning jolt, I stopped at the McD’s next to my house and got a large iced coffee (thinking it wouldn’t be that big). Mind you I really don’t ever go to McDonald’s and I have only had their coffee one other time, so imagine my surprise when the lady handed me the biggest large iced coffee I had ever seen for only $2!!! I am usually a Starbucks addict and really love my coconut milk latte from the green mermaid, but this delicious and much cheaper beverage has made me question my ways. Now, before you freak out, I’ll never give up my gold card or free drinks, but when there’s a day the card balance is low and I’m short on sleep, I’ll be lovin’ the McCafe on my way to the office. Enough of the coffee rant! That’s not even the new obsession I wanted to talk to you about today, just an added bonus.
I was recently checking in on one of my favorite blogs and came across a few items from Goodnight Macaroon that I really loved. I immediately went to their site and found even more things I am completely obsessed with! They have so many pom and tassel embellished items which you know are right up my alley! They are also perfect for the fiesta themed bachelorette party I have coming up next month. I linked up everything currently in my shopping cart to share with all of you because this shop is really too good not to share! I hope you find some great pieces to add to your wardrobe since they are having a flash sale today through Thursday and have discounted some really cute stuff!
I’m always loving a new and unique shop. What are some of your favorite places to shop?
Hello Tuesday!! How awesome is it to start the week on day two?! My favorite Mondays are the ones spent by the pool eating cool treats and soaking up the sun with friends and family; which is exactly what I did! This year is the first year since Wes and I have been together that we haven’t been at the beach for the week of the 4th. It totally threw me too! Strange as it sounds, I just couldn’t get myself together with a new plan, mostly because of the threat of rain. It was totally bumming me out and making me super nervous to commit to any plans. Turns out, the Charlotte area (or at least my neck of the woods) only got a few showers in the evenings and had some clouds in the AM. By the time I got done with bootcamp and made myself some lunch each day, it was bright and sunny and totally perfect! God was totally looking out for me and bummed out spirit. He knew exactly what I needed and gave me the most restful and relaxing weekend with my family and friends. I had plenty of ice cream, got well into The Bell Jar which has been on my reading list for quite some time now and even managed to crank out some DIY pom sandals (stay tuned for that post!)
I spent most of the weekend in a swimsuit and cover-up so there wasn’t too much excitement in the outfit dept. However, I did manage to get myself dressed for dinner last night and opted for this amazing light weight gauzy- gingham top and the white version of my all too fabulous distressed boyfriend shorts. It was comfy and laid back and just what the evening called for. The best part: all of it is on sale! Use the links below to help yourself to these amazing summer pieces. If you haven’t tried them already, you have to get your hands on these shorts. You’ll be living in them!!!
What did you all do for the 4th? Any crazy fun family traditions?
Good Morning Loves! I am so excited to share today’s post! This amazing white shift dress has been on major repeat this summer. It is so easy to throw on and the accessory possibilities are endless! It is super loose and flowy but doesn’t make you feel like you’re wearing a circus tent. It comes with a lace up neckline and flowing sleeves that add cool detail. (for me, it’s always in the details!) I’ve worn it tied and untied for a variety of feels depending on what I’m going for. My all time favorite part of this dress is the subtle raw texture of the flowers. It is a little hard to tell in the pictures but it has a burn out, sheer feel without looking totally casual. Basically, I LOVE it and knew I had to have it the minute I saw it. With white being a major trend this season, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. To make my favorite dress even more awesome, I popped in these mega white flower studs. They are larger than life but super light weight and so perfect! I was a little nervous when I first got them and wasn’t sure if they were really me. It took them being on my lobes for 2 seconds before I fell in love and now I’m reaching for them every other day. Most days I have to restrain myself and space out the wear. I finished off this flirty outfit with a super playful & colorful tassel clutch and nude heels. I, along with many others, missed the boat on the Rebecca Minkoff Tassel bag but luckily found this gem on ETSY. It’s almost identical and completely affordable! If you haven’t noticed yet, I love getting the designer look for less or finding anything on super sale. The almighty budget is a beautiful thing and rules my life and the lives of many others, so naturally I also like sharing my good finds. I hope you guys have a rockin’ Tuesday. Only 3 more days to go!
