Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE : MY PICKS

I debated covering this sale this year for a few reasons but mainly because let’s face it… ordering a ton of new clothes to get all dressed up to go nowhere seems a little crazy right now but… after browsing the sale, I did find a few things I added to my own wishlist so I thought I’d share with you. Now, let’s all cross our fingers that it doesn’t sell out in one minute.

MOM STYLE : DRESSES AND SNEAKERS

Let’s talk mom-iforms for a bit, specifically dresses and sneakers… I love love love fancy dresses and high heels but that’s not always practical as a mom chasing around little kids. I’ve learned over the years how to incorporate things I love into my mom uniform so I can love what I’m wearing but still be able to keep up with growing twins.
Besides a good pair of jeans and a tee or sweater, I love to pair a dress…

FALL CAPSULE

I love a good capsule wardrobe for so many reasons but mainly because it makes getting dressed in the morning an attainable goal! This season, I wouldn’t say I’m sticking to a true capsule wardrobe but I am sticking to a few staples that will be in rotation.

THE PERFECT SUMMER DRESS

Little white dresses have become my number one favorite item for summer. My closet is full of them. From delicate lace details to eyelets and minimalist vibes, white dresses are a staple every woman needs in her closet! I discovered this dress while searching for a summer dress to wear to a Ryan’s graduation ceremony. I instantly fell in love and ordered it.
Although I ended up wearing a different dress for the graduation, I’ve worn this one to several…

EASY SUMMER SHORTS

Summer is the season of shorts and I must say, I’m loving the easy summer shorts that are on trend right now. While I’m no stranger to a good pair of denim cutoffs for summer, due to my recent abdominal surgery, I’m not really into wearing waistlines quite yet! Switching up my look with some soft linen shorts for a loose breezy style has been making me so happy this season.
I picked out a few of my favorite easy…

FLOWER CHILD

It’s no secret that I love dresses and lately I’ve been flocking to pretty little floral numbers. I love the ethereal, flower child feelings that a ditzy floral or paisley floral pattern gives off. Whenever I see these patterns, I instantly think spring and early summer. I can imagine picnics in the canyon surrounded by blooms, walking on the beach on a warm afternoon and just sitting out under a tree watching the kiddos play. I think the season…
