Nordstrom Sale Try On Haul: My Favorite Buys

Nordstrom sale try on haul time! I wanted to drop it down this year and not show a million outfits but more staple items and at good price points so almost everything is under $100 and they are pieces you can wear a lot of different ways! Also a lot of loungewear since things aren’t really “back to normal” yet and I know so many of us are working from home.

Halogen Camel Trench Coat

Size: True to Size – Wearing Size S

Sale Price: $149.90 (Regular Price: $249)

This coat, in the one color and silhouette that has never gone out of style, is a style staple. Whether you layer it over a dress for date night, trousers for the office, or a simple cropped tee with denim, it’s the more effortless outerwear piece. This wool one will be in your wardrobe rotation for years and years to come.

Leith Rib Sleeveless Midi Dress

Size: Wearing Size M – Size up for less of a bodycon fit

Sale Price: $45.90 (Regular Price: $69)

Love this cute ribbed dress under $50. The high neckline and slit are the perfect combo! These ribbed midi dresses are like a unicorn – they are just as easy to dress up with heels as to dress down in sneakers. (Also comes in black and has a cute cut out in the back.)

Pastel Low Nike Blazers

Size: True to size – Wearing Size 8

Sale Price: $49.90 (Regular Price: $75)

I love a little pop of color and these unexpected neutral pops make this shoe very versatile. Under $50, they are a steal.

Sam Edelman Black & Ivory Mules

Size: True to Size – Wearing Size 8

Sale Price: $74.90 (Regular Price: $129.95)

The loafer selection at the Nordstrom Sale just gets better and better every year! I’m obsessed with the gold detailing on this pair to dress them up a little. They come in 5 colors (all so good!) and are under $100. Also love this pair for a more traditional loafer look

Nike Pink Logo Tee

Size: Runs oversized; sized down 1 size – Wearing size XS

Sale Price: $29.90 (Regular Price: $40)

I would be adding this pink Nike tee to the cart even if it wasn’t part of the sale, but the price tag makes it even better. I love the graphic details and the pink on pink is a fun departure from the typical neutrals – also it’s a great oversized fit, just make sure you size down if you don’t want it too loose.

Pastel Low Nike Blazers

Size: True to size – Wearing Size 8

Sale Price: $49.90 (Regular Price: $75)

How good is the color combo on these sneakers too! – on sale under $50

Got this one in multiple colors – love the fit and the simple logo detail.

Topshop Cream Pleated Sweatshirt

Size: True to size – Wearing size 25W

Sale Price: $24.90 (Regular Price: $40)

The silhouette of the season is no doubt anything with full sleeves – it transforms any sweatshirt from simple to special. This one has a beautiful pleated sleeve detail and is under $25 (also comes in pink). Also love the fit of this one (under $100 and comes in 5 colors).

Topshop Black Ripped Dad Jeans

Size: Wearing size 4

Regular Price: $80

Sale Price: $49.90

I think Topshop is the runaway winner in the boyfriend denim category this year – how good is this pair?! They are the perfect fit and I love the wide leg. Also comes in this lighter wash – both under $50!

Steve Madden Chain Pointed Mule

Size: True to Size – Wearing size 8

Sale Price: $49.90 (Regular Price: $89.95)

Obsessed with this pair of loafers – the hardware is so good and love them in white (also come in 2 more colors)

Champion Reverse Weave Mint Sweatshirt

Size: Fits Oversized – Wearing Size S

Sale Price: $32.90 (Regular Price: $50)

These reverse weave sweatshirts are such amazing quality. They are thick so they hold their shape really well making for the perfect sweatshirt.

Circlex Grey Jogger Sweats

Size: Sized up for a looser fit – Wearing size S

Sale Price: $22.90 (Regular Price: $35)

Let’s be honest, my shopping cart is never complete without comfy loungewear. I tried this pair on and did not want to take them off (love both the mocha and grey!). They are a steal at under $25.

Converse High Tops

Size: True to size – 8

Sale Price: $49.90 (Regular Price: $75)

My white, hightop platform Converse from a couple years ago are still one of my most asked about items. Love the gold hardware on this pair – I have a feeling they will be a favorite for years to come! They are perfect with joggers, denim, or cut-offs shorts.

Topshop Cream Pleated Sweatshirt

Size: True to size – Wearing size 4-6

Circlex Tan Jogger Sweats

Size: Sized up for a looser fit – Wearing size S

Sale Price: $22.90 (Regular Price: $35)

The tan version of the joggers above – honestly need them both! They are so soft and really budget-friendly under $25 so I don’t feel guilty about picking up both colors.

Free People Mock Neck Sweater

Size: True to size – Wearing size S

Sale Price: $84.90 (Regular Price: $128)

I always stock up on all things Free People during the Anniversary Sale, but especially their knits and sweaters. This one is super soft and comfortable (and comes in 4 colors!). Long-hemmed sweaters are going to be huge this fall. So good worn as a sweater dress or I also love a minimalist biker short to keep it simple and chic.

Converse High Tops

Size: True to size – 8

Sale Price: $49.90 (Regular Price: $75)

Love the high tops paired with biker shorts! They add such a classic, throwback feel to your look.

Zella Ribbed Black Bike Short

Size: True to size – Wearing size Small

Price: $55

A major closest staple which is newer to the game is the biker short. This pair isn’t part of the Anniversary Sale, but it’s too good not to include. I also got this Nike pair of Biker shorts – both are super cute! If you haven’t jumped on this trend yet, now is the time! You can also dress them up with a belted blazer and combat boots for a major trend moment.

Zella Zebra Print Sports Bra

Size: True to size – Wearing size Medium

Sale Price: $24.90 (Regular Price: $39)

I’m loving the longline sports bras we are seeing this season. They are super comfortable and there are so many great prints and color options that will completely transform your workout wear. Love this one and also comes in the prettiest water color print!

Nike Black Biker Shorts

Size: True to size – Wearing size Small

Sale Price: $29.90 (Regular Price: $40)

These are already selling out in sizes – would definitely suggest a pair if you can get your hands on some! I have a feeling biker shorts will be bigger than ever this fall.

Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Made Simple

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, guys! The sale has a lot of big changes this year to make shopping (and snagging your favorite pieces before they sell out) even easier.  Throughout the sale, I’ll be going through and sharing my ‘Best of’ for multiple categories – beauty, outerwear, baby gear, bags, and more. If you don’t have access to the sale yet, you can still start putting your favorites together. THIS FEATURE IS BRAND NEW! You can add it to your wishlist so you don’t lose valuable time scouring the site again once you have access.

With the Wish List option you can add your favorite pieces in your size (double bonus!) to your wish list. Once the sale opens to you, you can go straight to your wish list to add to your bag. See screenshots below for the step by step process:

You can break your wishlists down to certain lists too for easier shopping.

You can easily view your lists and items you have already selected and when sale opens up boom its all right there.

I wanted to share some of my favorites today, some of these items are tried and true favorites I have used for years and some of the items are already on my own wishlist!

nordstrom anniversary salePin It

DETAILS: 1. MOCK NECK SWEATER (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 2. NECESSAIRE SET (UNDER $50) | 3. CAR SEAT (ON SALE 25% OFF) 4. JOGGERS (COME IN 2 COLORS – UNDER $25) | 5. NIKE SNEAKERS | 6. PAJAMAS SET (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 7. NUDE MULES (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 8. SMEG TOASTER | 9. PINK MAKEUP BRUSHES (ON SALE UNDER $50)| 10. OLAPLEX SET (ON SALE UNDER $100) | 11. BOYFRIEND DENIM (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 12. BLACK CAMISOLE (ON SALE UNDER $20)| 13.WHITE SILK PILLOWCASE SET | 14. NUDE TEE (ON SALE UNDER $20) | 15. GRAPHIC TEE (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 16. LEOPARD PRINT BLANKET (ON SALE 30% OFF)| 17. GOLD HOOPS (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 18. NIKE SNEAKERS (ON SALE UNDER $50) | 19. WHITE MULES | 20. BLACK BIKER SHORTS | 21. GOLD MICHELE WATCH

Baby: The lightest and best carseat on the market (this is one we have for ollie) is on MAJOR SALE! We have two different strollers and Ollie is just about outgrown his Doona so we have been using the Nuna again. Both strollers are great but the Nuna has more storage and the carseat itself is A LOT lighter.

Beauty: This body wash is a favorite, stock up while it’s on sale. Olaplex will transform your hair, used it for years, I have been out for a couple months and keep forgetting to buy it going to stock up. And these brushes are cute and pink and my friend Marisa who does my makeup has a couple of them so I need 🙂

Shoes: I honestly feel like they knocked it out of the park with shoes this year. I have these shoes on my wishlist, they are BEAUTIFUL! I have seen them in real life and they are even better in real life. Mark my words they are going to be sold out fast. They look high end and I don’t wear heels nearly as much as I used to so these are great for fashion and mom mode. I also got these cute nike sneakers. And obsessed with these platform sneakers.

Home: Get me every soft blanket there is and something warm and cozy and I’m ready for fall. Also how cute is this toaster??!

Clothes: Can never say no to a good pair of sweats. These are under $30 and have both colors on my wishlist. This cute cami is under $25 and so is this one.

Did a dressing room try on haul yesterday – they didn’t have a ton in store, and they even told me stock is more limited because of social distancing they want more people to shop online, so get your carts ready for your access day!

The Anniversary Sale opens up to Nordstrom Cardholders and members throughout August (today for Icon Early Access). Once it opens to cardholders (August 13th) and then the public (August 19th), pieces will start to sell out fast so you’ll want to move quick when it opens up to you.

Below are some more of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!

Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Chia Seed Parfait

Easy, Healthy Breakfast: PB Chia Seed ParfaitPin It

Happy Monday guys! Sharing this yummy healthy breakfast recipe with you. When you get a healthy breakfast in it boosts your brain stimulation, gives essential nutrients you need for the day, contributes to heart health, reduces metabolic syndrome, improves skin, and stabilizes energy levels. My usual breakfast is a bowl of oatmeal, I like to switch it up once in a while and incorporate some superfoods. I’ve started making chia seed pudding in these cute mason jars (similar here) mixed with protein bites, it has a  massive amount of nutrients like antioxidants, Omega-3, and fiber- here’s the recipe I used:

Peanut butter chia seed parfait.Pin It

RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Toppings: extra peanut butter, raspberries, perfect bar protein squares

Directions:

  1. Whisk together almond milk, chia seeds, honey, peanut butter, and vanilla. Make sure to keep whisking until the peanut butter is dispersed. Let the mixture sit for five minutes and whisk again to remove any clumps. Place in the fridge to set- I kept it overnight but I noticed they started expanding after about an hour!
  2. When ready to eat, top with a drizzle of peanut butter, add some perfect bar protein squares, and raspberries. I also thought blueberries and granola would be yummy options too! I love these gold spoons to eat with to make it extra pretty!

And enjoy! Super easy and healthy!! Let me know if you try it 🙂

8 Summer Dress Trends Everyone Should Try

Hey guys! The kids and I surprised my parents in Montana last week and it was such a good trip. It was at my family cabin where we go every summer and it was so good to be able to get some fresh air and hang out with family. Being with family always feels like the best way to recharge!

I don’t know if it’s just living out of a suitcase for a few days or living in loungewear all summer, but I am itching to put on a pretty dress! There are so many good summer dress trends right now that are going to pass us by, haha so whether you have family photos coming up, an intimate backyard wedding, or are just anxious to trade in your sweats, here are some of my favorite summer dresses online – all under $150!

summer dress trendsPin It

DETAILS: 1. GREY DRESS (UNDER $50 – COMES IN 3 COLORS) | 2. SUNGLASSES (UNDER $100) 3. WHITE DOT OFF THE SHOULDER (UNDER $100) | 4. WOVEN BLOCK HEEL SANDAL (UNDER $100 – ALSO COMES IN BLACK) | 5. RUFFLED MINI DRESS (MAJOR STEAL!) | 6. GREEN MINI DRESS (ON SALE UNDER $100) | 7. YELLOW DRESS (ON SALE UNDER $100) | 8. LIP GLOSS (SHADE: ROSE ILLICITE)| 9. PINE HOOPS | 10. TIE DYE FACE MASK | 11. WHITE BACKLESS DRESS (COMES IN 4 COLORS) | 12. RUFFLED PINK SANDALS | 13. PINK MINI SATCHEL (ON SALE 50% OFF) | 14. BLUE FLORAL MINI DRESS (ON SALE UNDER $50 – ALSO COMES IN YELLOW) | 15. WOVEN HEADBAND (UNDER $50) | 16. WHITE LACE MINI DRESS (UNDER $100 – ALSO COMES IN BLACK) | 17. SILK FACE MASK | 18. LILAC MAXI DRESS (COMES IN 3 COLORS)

DROPPED HEMS: This dress comes in three colors and each one is just as good as the next. I love the dropped hem and it’s an amazing price point under $50!

OFF THE SHOULDER: Nothing handles summer heat as gracefully as an off the shoulder dress. I love the silhouette of this one –  showing some skin makes the polka dots feel a little more grown up.

RUFFLED UP: I, for one, have always said yes to a good ruffle, but if you worry about it being overwhelming or too feminine, try it with a shorter hem. I could NOT believe the price tag on this one – soooo good!

BRIGHT + BOLD: In a sea of neutrals that is my closet, I’m always craving some color. There are so many bold colors and no easier way to wear them than in a simple silhouette, like a dress. Love this bold yellow and I’m on a major neon streak – I could wear this dress on repeat!

BACKLESS BEAUTY: Never underestimate the effect of understated drama. I’m obsessed with all the back details on dresses this season. Love this cute tea dress with an open back. (Also can’t wait to wear it this fall with sheer tights and combat boots!)

RUCHED + READY: The ruched mini dress is probably my favorite addition to the summer dress trends line-up. It’s form flattering, flirty, and they have so many print and color combos that the possibilities are endless! This one is on major sale and comes in the prettiest yellow too.

LACED UP: What better way to update the lace trim than with a chic, modern silhouette? The high neckline of this dress paired with a short hem feels so young and elegant. Can’t believe this one is under $100!

MAXI MOMENT: Last but not least, the maxi dress! Free People always has the best summer dresses and did not disappoint this season. Obsessed with this lilac one!

Below are a few other summer dress trends I love! (Honestly they are all so good and great price points – need them all!)

CODY: BLACK TEE | SHORTS | TENNIS SHOES

Date nights have been a little bit different lately for everyone – not your typical dinner and a movie. Cody and I have been trying to switch things up a bit and put our heads together to get creative. Dates are so important, and even more so now! A lot of couples are spending more time than ever, but rubbing elbows working in a confined space together, helping out with chores around the house, etc. is way different than quality, date time together. One thing Cody & I have been trying to do lately is get outside and be active for our dates. I’ve actually loved it more than your usual date because we really focus on each other more and feels great to take advantage of beautiful days by moving around!

Couples who workout together stay together right? The other day we decided to dust off our tennis rackets and go get a little competitive. Cody is the most athletic person I know – he is so good at everything he tries, which makes it impossible to really compete with him haha but it’s fun to try. It was such a fun memory too, so I wanted to put together some other active date ideas to try:

  1. Rollerblading.
  2. Pool Olympics. Our kids insist on getting in on this one!
  3. Basketball. I grew up playing basketball, so I get a little more competitive with Cody on this one, haha.
  4. Garage sale challenge. A great way to minimize your home too – see who can gather the most objects!
  5. Take a new workout class together.
  6. Physical fitness test.  A blast from the past – did anyone else have to do physical fitness tests in elementary school?
  7. Outdoor ninja warrior course. The set up is just as fun as actually running the course, not to mention watching each other attempt it haha.
  8. Scavenger hunt. Have you and your partner create one then compare whose was the most fun!
  9. Pickleball. A must try if you haven’t ever played – so fun.
  10. Evening hike. Build a bonfire when you get to your destination!
  11. Minute to win it challenges. Pinterest has great MTW ideas!
  12. Croquet. This is one of my fams all-time favs!
  13. Geocaching. Download the app or look up a nearby geocache online!
  14. Teach each other something new.
  15. Nerf fun war. The kids love to get in on this one too!
  16. DIY mini-golf course. Try and see how complicated you can make each hole.
  17. Fishing.
  18. Make a Time Capsule. I love these so much- it’s so fun to go back and look at how much you’ve changed over the years.
  19. Tennis.
  20. Try a 2 person fitness challenge. We love to do team sit up with Ollie! He loves it so much!

Whats some of your favorite active date night activities with your partner? I would love to add to the list and get some new ideas! 🥰 Share some of you favorites below!

5 Days Of Simple Summer Looks

Summer days can be unpredictable. With kids out of school, we are always in search or something new to keep everyone entertained or the next adventure. It can be difficult to even find a time to work let alone get ready for the day, so I put it to the test- how fast can I throw together 5 easy outfits for every occasion throughout the week. The goal was to still look stylish and put together, but keep it simple and quick! Here are 5 days of simple summer looks for various occasions.

Love them paired with a basic white tank and some black sunnies like these. To transition to a casual dinner look, throw on a denim jacket like this one, I love an oversized look so I always go up one size!

DETAILS: JEANS | SHOES | TOP | CHAIN | SUNGLASSES | BAG

Statement jewelry is my weakness right now. It completes a look so well when you feel like you’re just missing something. I love this gold link chain and how it complements these tortoise shell sandals for a more dressed up look without putting in the time. A great lightweight summer top is this one I’m wearing, and I love it tucked into these extra high rise black jeans! This is an effortlessly chic outfit for grabbing lunch with friends or taking a picnic to the park with the kids!

Below are some other pieces to put together effortless summer looks:

Summer sunsets where we live are absolutely stunning. Our favorite part of the day (and clearly Ollie’s!) is after dinner going out for a walk to watch the sun go down. There’s just something about summer nights that just make you so happy. Beckam loves to ride his bike and Ollie wants to be big and walk so bad but loves to be pushed around in the stroller! I have to be cozy when we go on our walks so I love this tie-dye hoodie because it’s the right amount of comfy but really light so it’s not too hot during the summer – and who doesn’t love a tie dye print to match the sunset?! These pants are super lightweight as well and fit baggier so they almost feel like thin sweatpants! Cody is all about lightweight in the summer too. He loves these navy shorts, and this thin button-up. Even though it’s been a different vibe this summer, I love that it has been super laid back where we can just focus on really being together and genuinely enjoy the little moments we take for granted! What is your favorite part of the day with your family?

DETAILS: OLLIE’S ZIP UP FOOTIES (COMES IN 20+ COLORS) | SLEEP BAG | BECKAM’S PJ SET |

With a 5 year gap between Beckam and Ollie, it’s almost like I’m having to learn everything all over again. There are so many new brands and products that it’s almost like starting fresh (with the exception of some tried and true products :). I think one of the biggest differences is all the cute baby clothes especially for boys! I loved dressing B up, but I feel like there are so many more options now. One of my newfound favorites is Kyte Baby. I was introduced to them a couple months ago and they have THE SOFTEST clothes ever! (Also hosting a giveaway on my IG – keep reading for details!)

APPAREL:

I love their selection of baby clothes! Their pieces are made out of bamboo (which helps regulate baby’s temperature) and soooo buttery soft! Honestly I was shook by how soft their products are. Not only do they have a great variety of silhouettes, they also have amazing color options and prints (how good is this rainbow print?!). The zippered footies are worth their weight in gold! They have a textured bottom to give them extra grip while babies/toddlers stand or start to walk. They also have toddler sizes up size 7 so you can get matching pajama sets for Beckam.

SLEEP BAGS:

One of the biggest tips I learned from working with a professional sleep trainer for Ollie was the importance of sleep sacks. They make a huge difference! Not only is it a sleep cue to help them get in their bedtime routine, but it helps prevent them from crawling out of the crib as they get older. Kyte Baby’s sleep bags are all temperature regulated, so you can use a thicker one during winter and a thinner one during summer. Such a good idea and again, so many great color options.

NURSERY/HOME:

Kyte Baby also has tons of pieces for the nursery and home. Their blankets are also made out of their super soft bamboo material (they have baby, kid, and adult blankets). The crib sheets are on my wish list but they sell out fast. Tons of color options but you just have to move quick when you see the color you want. 🙂 They also have a bath collection with robes from baby to adult, washcloths, brushes, and more. Need to try!

I have been in a major sunglasses funk lately. It might sound weird, but a fresh pair of sunglasses can change the game. They are hands down one of my most-worn accessories and always make an outfit feel more put together. I’ve had a few more closet additions this summer, but they always hit differently with a new pair of sunglasses, so that’s what I’ve been on the hunt for recently! I just got this pair and it’s really different from what I’ve been wearing lately. I love the delicate frames to make any outfit feel more dressed up. They are the perfect pair to go from day to night, whether you have to had into work for meetings, are heading to the pool, or heading out for date night. Also got these cat eye frames and this pair recently and love!

Below are some other sunglasses I’m loving! You guys sent me tons of great suggestions on stories the other day when I requested some of your favorite styles – linking some of my favorites you guys suggested here with other great accessories!

We are still trying to figure out landscaping for our backyard – so many of you guys weighed in on the pool debate so now it’s back in the running, haha. But we felt like we weren’t taking advantage of our backyard space, so when I found this cute kids’ patio set on sale I thought it would be the perfect solution. We had some left over gravel from another landscaping project, so we put it down to buy us some time before we decide if we are doing a pool area, pavers, grass, etc. I love the color combo and it’s all good quality but still lightweight so the kids can move it around easily. Both Cody and I still sit on it, even though its kids sizes, so it’s become a fun new hang out spot in the backyard. There’s no better way to break it in than with some yummy snacks. Mara usually loves playing server but all the kids loved hanging out on their new patio set while I put together some snacks for them.

I found some cute outdoor pieces for 4th of July – loved these striped and checkered napkins and got these reusable straws which are perfect for a backyard BBQ or any festive celebrations.  Also linking to our outfits and other cute summer pieces below. Love this denim dress and it’s on sale under $50 right now. Also was shocked to find this swimsuit on such major sale! Obsessed with all the colors and prints!
