On Friday, I’m headed to the Windy City with a few girlfriends for the weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited! Naturally I’m most worried about what to pack for the long weekend, as I’m trying to keep it as light as possible… trying to pack everything into my Herschel Strand Duffel was my dream, but a hilarious, too-aggressive feat. I settled for my Everlane The Twill Weekender, which is the perfect size to carry on.
Hump Day always gets me feeling antsy. This week and last in particular, as it feels like everyone but me is on some incredible vacation instead of trudging through the office day after day. It’s absolutely vacation season, but I guess I can’t be too grouchy because I have a trip coming up next weekend! See some of my favorite things keeping me inspired lately.
August includes the very last of our summer days, and I intend to love every second of what we have left! That includes, but is not limited to, lots of neons, tons of florals, and the best loungewear summer has to offer.
When pieces are half off or more, they’re oh, so hard to resist. I rounded up my favorite designer finds that are all more than half off, so no guilt necessary. (Sales like these are why I very rarely ever buy full price!) Whether you’re still in summer mode or you’re looking forward to fall, there are tons of great deals. Everything under $50 – happy shopping!
With a couple of great trips coming up in August and September (one to Chicago, one to Newport, RI), I’m challenging myself to a month without shopping. Not only is this on my list of 30 in 365, but it’s also something I like to try to do once a year to remind myself to work with the many things I already have in my closet! With fall approaching, it’s so tempting to fall into the trap of shopping for a season that isn’t even here yet. However I know that I have a trove of pieces that are just waiting to be worked and reworked.
Okay, we may have quite a bit of summer left to live (thank God), but it never stops me from looking forward when it comes to my bigger purchases. I have been swooning over burgundy bags for the past few falls, and I think this may just be the one where I bite the bullet.
There’s no sale like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to get you ready for fall fashion. There are so many great finds to choose from, whether you’re looking for closet staples (like jackets and denim), or something a little more fun. Shop my favorite options for your closet, home and makeup drawer, but only through August 6.
My style is in full on summer mode. We’ve had some nice weather, but this weekend the temps are bumping up to the 90s, and I’m very ready to wear nothing but casual cutoffs and sandals! That has inspired my purchases as of late – I bought one pair of the Levi’s Wedgie Shorts and I’m cutoff obsessed. Read on for my latest buys (and bargains)!
I never thought I’d be saying this in 2017, but Abercrombie & Fitch has really stepped up their game and come out with some absolutely gorgeous styles this year. They’re also having their summer sale right now, which means 40-60% off of some of their cutest summer finds.
I absolutely love the Fourth of July. It’s the perfect opportunity to hang around outside, eat and drink to excess, and spend time with friends! This year I’ll be going to a rather large pool party, and I’m already brainstorming the perfect outfit for it.
