Hello, gift guide season! If there’s one gift that keeps on giving, it’s anything c-o-z-y! Perhaps the most overused word in the blogger world during the holidays (ha!), but for good reason…cozy things make you feel AMAZING and HAPPY. I don’t know about y’all, but the older I get the more of a homebody I become. I stand by the power of a pair of Ugg slippers (happy feet year round…what’s not to love?) or a calming face mask (100% yes to a pamper sesh!).
Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I woke up extra early this morning (thanks to Watson & Lu…!), so I figured I’d get a head start on all the Black Friday sales that are currently in full swing. I’ll be updating this list throughout the weekend, so be sure to check back daily for new sales added! 🙂 In the meantime, enjoy shopping my favorite finds above and feel free to scope out my full list of awesome retailer sales below. Happy shopping, XO!
After spending an unreasonable amount of time sorting through nearly every page of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – I have found my top 10 favorites to scoop up before they’re gone! The deals above are SO good and feature major discounts on new fall clothing, shoes and accessories. I know it may seem crazy to shop for cardigans in July, but once we hit fall I assure you every item will be put to good use. Time to shop to your hearts content – especially since the best stuff goes so fast during this sale! Excited to share my top 10 picks with y’all – happy shopping, gals!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE! From July 12th – July 19th, Nordstrom cardholders (I have a debit card and it’s awesome!) get to shop their best sale of the year before it’s open to the public. My recommendation? Getchu a Nordies card and hit the sale because these items go quick! Madewell, Free People, Patagonia…just to name a few of my favorite brands in the sale. Watson and I started brewing our coffee at 4am so I could peruse the site and pick out my favorites for y’all…as always, I’m here to make your online shopping a breeze! ENJOY some amazing deals and please comment below with what you purchase…I love hearing about it!! XOXO
As I get deeper into the world of blogging, I’ve been exposed to a lot of different makeup brands that I probably wouldn’t have found on my own while strolling around Sephora. I used to be the person who swore off foundation or eyebrow powder, but in 2014 I was a newbie to the makeup world (…and in comparison to my fellow fashion bloggers, I probably still am…!) and was terribly afraid of layering up makeup in fear of looking (and feeling) unlike myself. However, by 2018 I’ve experimented a bit more and found some tried and trues I keep buying over and over again – and I’m super excited to share with y’all!
That said, you’ve likely seen a few of these brands mentioned on my blog before (hey there, Supergoop!), and I’m also including some new ones that have made the cut over the years. Sooo, let’s get to it! Ps. Sharing these items in order of how I apply them – start to finish…
As you have probably gathered…I have a strong affinity for tan, brown, dark brown, light brown – aaaall the browns on the color spectrum – shoes. I try my hardest to branch out and put the black pair in my shopping cart, but just before I click “confirm payment” my heartstrings are pulled and I’ve swapped the black woven mules for the brown pair. Immediately, I feel relief. 😉 (Anyone else try to push their “style boundaries” only to run back to your ‘ol reliables? That’s me, all day long!). I know I’m like a broken record about this color, whether it’s for shoes or handbags, but I really just love the warm tones and how a pair of perfect brown/tan/cognac (whatever the word!) adds such an approachable and casual feel to an outfit. Sometimes black can seem too harsh or severe when I’m slipping on my shoes with an outfit, but my trusty brown shoe collection feels less intense and more “me.” If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ve likely seen quite a few of these kicks before, but I figured a summer shoes roundup was in order to properly give them the spotlight they deserve! 😉 From a summer wedding, to a baby shower, to a date or even a grocery run – these shoes can do it all!
Hope y’all are having a wonderful long weekend! Blake and I have been busy spending time with family (my dad was in town this weekend, hooray!) and watching aaaall the crazy basketball playoff games. Tonight’s another big one (…eek! Obvs I’m putting all my positive juju towards the Houston Rockets!), and while we watch, I’ll be putting my multitasking skills to the test as I online shop all of the AMAZING weekend sales. (…True story: I’m a pro by now 😉 ). We don’t have cable, otherwise I would 100% be flipping back and forth between The Bachelor season premiere (…although Blake might be fighting me for the remote haha). I did some sale research this afternoon and rounded up my favorites from a few of my go-to retailers… enjoy some summer shopping, gals!
Ohh those darling straw/wicker/rattan (whatever you want to call it 😉 ) basket bags we keep seeing pop up on Pinterest and our Instagram feeds! They are feminine, a fun handbag change for these warmer months ahead and make for the perfect addition to any look, for any occasion (love that seashell clutch for a beach wedding!). I have a few rattan bags on rotation (you know the ones: see here & here), and I’ve scoured the Internet to pick a few more fabulous finds for y’all. Let’s get to it!
…It’s that time of year again (…and today’s the last day!)…The Buy More Save More event at Shopbop is happening now and things are going quick! I scoured the site to pick out my favorite pieces (that won’t break the bank) to have you walking into spring in s-t-y-l-e. My personal favorites are this striped one-piece and that darling denim jumpsuit…swoon! Grab a glass of vino (#weekend) and enjoy an online shopping spree. Happy Saturday, loves! XO
What’s on your Valentine’s Day wish list? Jewelry, candles, a silk pillowcase perhaps? (Psst, this pillowcase has amazing reviews and that color is TOO cute!). Blake and I generally keep things pretty simple to celebrate the day – we get each other a sweet gift and card, then make dinner together and cuddle up to a movie at home. He has never been one to love the gift shopping experience, so I make it extra easy and send him a few options (…and he does the same for me). At the top of my list? …Well, really any of these gorgeous goodies listed above! I’ve been eyeing that pretty necklace (#2) for over a year now, though…hey Blake, hint hint! 😉
