Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 | What I'm Loving and How To Shop

It's HERE!!!! Christmas in July!!! Aka the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now live (for card holders). You can still sign up for a card today if you want early access. I have a Nordstrom Debit card that I got a while ago and unfortunately, they don't offer the debit cards anymore. I've heard you get a $40 Nordstrom note the day that you sign up for the Nordstrom card, so that is a great incentive too!


What I'm Shopping For

This sale is a great opportunity to stock up on items you may need for fall and winter. Last year I bought a handful of tops, a few sweaters, a pair of jeans, booties (which ended up being back ordered and I canceled because I waited to long to buy them) and my Tory Burch handbag. 

This year, I'm thinking of purchasing a new pair of booties, a neutral cross body bag, some layering pieces, maybe some jewelry. I'm also looking for a light weight jacket. That's it! Just looking for some staple pieces for my wardrobe. 

I will fill you in with what I buy and my reviews on the items next week, but below I've linked to items I found online that I'm loving! 

Also, make sure you're following me on instagram because I may attempt to make it in the store today to try some items on!

Red, White & Blue! Bennett is TWO!


We had such a fun time this past weekend celebrating Bennett's 2nd birthday! I had planned for the theme to be Red, White and Blue just because it was the weekend before the 4th and it rhymed with TWO! Also, it helped that there were a TON of cute red, white and blue decorations out in stores... Mainly, the Target dollar spot which is my jam! 

The party was in the early afternoon, so we just ordered some pizza, I made a few side dishes and my mother-in-law made the cupcakes! I wanted this party to be as easy and casual as possible!

I got most of the decorations at Target and a few from Party City, but you can find a lot of similar items from Amazon (I linked some similar decor items below)! 


I made this American flag layered Mexican dip which was a hit! I also made a really easy pasta salad (cooked spiral pasta, cherry tomatoes sliced, mini cucumbers sliced, crumbled feta cheese, garlic expressions dressing) and set out some chips and salsa and puff corn for snacks. 



My mother-in-law made the yummy vanilla and chocolate cupcakes! I just added some fresh strawberries and blueberries on top to coordinate with the colors (and Bennett loves berries!). 




We also had a lot of fun water activities set up outside for the kiddos! The big hit was this inflatable slide pool (similar here and here) ! Make sure to get this air pump to make the set up go a little faster! 



We also had a baby pool and water table set up for the littler ones and a slip 'n slide for the older kids! 


This little fold up picnic table was a recent Amazon purchase and it worked perfectly for the kids to eat outside!


One of Bennett's gifts from the family was a play grill! He and Camden are both loving it! 



We had such a fun day! As exhausting as it is to plan and host a birthday party, it was so worth it for those smiles on their faces! 

Happy Birthday to my sweet Bennett!! We love you!!

Old Navy Try On | June 2018

I had some time yesterday to pop into Old Navy and try on a few things. I am loving some of their new arrivals! They have also been running some great sales recently, so now is the time to buy some of those staple pieces you can wear for the rest of the summer. 

**PS - You can now order online and pick up in your local store so you don't have to pay or wait for shipping!!

For reference, I am 5'2" and typically wear a size XS/S in tops, size 4 or small in bottoms and XS/S petite in dresses. I am wearing these sizes in the photos below unless noted otherwise. 

what I wore yesterday: open knit cardigan (LOVE this cardigan for summer! I wear it when I go somewhere to work in case it's cold) | tee shirt | denim shorts (great length and relaxed fit! Run a little big, if between sizes, size down) | tory burch sandals | monogram necklace | iphone case

Feeling the 80's vibe here... But, this flag tank is currently $10! You could order now and receive before the 4th OR you can order online and pick up in store (just select store pick up while checking out) | light wash distressed shorts

Also loved this festive hoodie

How cute is this fringe hem cardigan?! Perfect length too! (tank I'm wearing under - these are the best! So soft!)

How many striped tops is too many? I think I need to add this one to my collection! And it's on sale for $8.50... done and DONE!

And I'll add this tee shirt also on sale for $8.50!

Ok, one more striped top because this one has ruffled sleeves! 


I obviously have a thing for palm print! This top is perfect for the summer heat! 

Love this top tucked into these linen pants! (wearing a size small in the pants and probably need a small petite for length)

This cute little swing dress is on sale for 8 bucks!!

Love this linen blend off the shoulder dress! They only had a medium, so would need to order a small. The material is a little thicker, but so soft!! 

How sweet is this little off the shoulder embroidered dress?!

This off the shoulder top would be perfect for date night with some skinny jeans and statement/colorful accessories. 

I was feeling like I needed some fun workout wear... Anything to add some motivation, amiright?! Loving the print on these running shorts! And I really liked this workout tank and there's some detailing on the back that is really fun. If you are in need of a high support sports bra, this one is my favorite! I have a few of them!

Ok... that was a lot!!
