Sales I Love Right Now: Nordstrom Sale

Best of Nordstrom Sale

Nordstrom is rounding out its annual sale this weekend with new fall must haves, all marked down. After Aug. 4th all sale items will be marked back up to full price. So, if there is anytime to get shopping, the time is now! I’m having a hard time picking out and trying on sweaters, coats and boots all while it’s 80 degrees outside so my sale must haves are items that I can wear now, and later! Sticking with accessories, shoes and a couple things for the home I’ve made a list of my favorites from the Nordstrom sale.

- These leopard and black pumps are ADORABLE. These would be adorable with a little dress for date night and with leather leggings and a chunky sweater this winter!
- As far as make-up goes, I like to keep things minimal and simple but blush is always a must. This palette from Nars has colors perfect for all skin tones.
- The second I spotted this handbag from Loeffler Randall I knew that it could complete a variety of outfits season after season. The brushed gold is timeless and puts this bag at the top of my wish list!
-Personalization is always fun, especially in jewelry!! This nameplate necklace is too good.
- I’m a watch girl and usually stick to this one, but I’m thinking a black watch like this would be a great alternative!
- Leather & snake skin?! Yes and yes
- Like I said, personalization is always fun…these glasses will complete your oh-so chic bar cart and would also make the perfect wedding gift!
- Black Nike’s. I’d wear these now with some distressed shorts and later with leather leggings and a wool hat! Oh, and they’d be great to work out in too!

Happy Tuesday!

When it comes to summer dressing and keeping cool, I like to keep my outfits simple and accessories to a minimum. Loving these track style shorts from Finders Keepers . They are both short and lightweight which make for the ideal summer hot pants! I paired them with a simple tank tied in a knot and a black and white mule, and if it seems like all I’ve been wearing is black and white its probably because I have. I can’t seem to kick my obsession with this combo. I’ll work on adding more color to my summer outfits.

Joie Dress // Sandals // Old Navy Bag // Oliver Peoples Sunglasses

This dress has been a long time favorite and has been a key wardrobe piece from season to season. It’s my go-to dress when I’m in a rush and don’t know what to wear. I last wore it here, with booties and a jacket. For summer, this dress is perfect with a pair of sandals and nothing else. Sometimes simple neutrals is the way to go!

Peaches and Cream Popsicle

IMG_0669

I have been in full on peach mode over here looking for new ways to use my bounty of peaches! I last shared this recipe that featured grilled peaches which I’ve made multiple times over the last few weeks. If you haven’t tried it yet, you better get movin’…they are GOOD.
Today I’ve got a recipe for the most deliciously creamy non-dairy popsicles you’ve ever tasted. I have always been a fan of coconut popsicles but tend to steer clear of them due to their long list of unknown ingredients and high sugar content.  With the recent heat wave we’ve been experiencing in San Diego I’ve had a craving for one of those delicious little guys. Unwilling to overlook their funky ingredients I decided to make my own. Not only was it seriously simple to create this recipe but these popsicles will sustain all your sweet and creamy cravings.  I decided to add peaches to the popsicles and what happened was way yummier than I ever expected.
Time to dust off your popsicle mold or if you don’t have one, I recommend this one!

Joie Dress // Cost Plus Necklace // Gap Clutch (similar) // Boutique 9 Sandals (similar)

I’d be embarrassed to tell you how many times I’ve worn this outfit. Like this exact combination of dress, shoes and necklace. I think the only thing that changes is my hair!! Whenever I wear this outfit I get so many compliments so I figured it was a good time to share it here. I think its the necklace that catches the most attention so let me let you in on a little secret, it’s from Cost Plus! (I’ve recently seen a beautiful turquoise version in store).
I know I’ll happily wear this combo many more times this summer and early fall so don’t be surprised if you see it again!! If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Happy Friday!

Tropical Getaway

jumpsuit // sandals // book // swimsuit // tanner // sunglasses // hat // beach bag // sunscreen // lip gloss // beach towel

Is it too early to start planning what I want to pack for my tropical getaway this September? I sure hope not because I’m seriously lusting after this beach bag and these sandals. Also, this bikini needs to make its way into my suitcase because it’s one of the cutest I’ve seen all summer! Can’t forget a good book and sunscreen…this has been a long time favorite of mine, it has a matte finish so its perfect to wear on your face. Counting down the days until I’m in vacation mode!

Decor Inspiration: Framed Scarves

Although I’ve lived in my current home for almost 3 years and it is pretty much fully decorated, and has been for quite some time, I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to mix things up or bring a new life to an older item.  Framing scarves has been on my radar big time and I’ve been going through my collection in search of ones pretty enough to hang on my walls (and wishing I had more bare walls!!). I love the idea of personalizing this easy DIY to fit any space big or small or to showcase a beautiful vintage scarf or a collage of smaller ones. I’m planning on framing a few special scarves soon and will be using these directions to do so!
