Lace Midi Dress + Nordstrom Giveaway

Lace Dress Nordstrom Sale Giveaway

One of my FAVORITE finds of this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is this gorgeous lace midi dress. This rusty pink color is just so unique and perfect for late summer/early fall. I love the band collar, and of course I’m a sucker for anything lace. The intricate details in this dress are stunning! I guess you could say I’m “all about that lace”. Yep, I went there.

I knew this dress would sell out super fast, but I still wanted to share it with you because there is always a chance it could be restocked. The sale goes through August 6th, so there is still time. I am checking on restocks daily, so I will definitely keep you updated!

For those of you who have shopped the Nordstrom Sale, what is your absolute favorite find? I love to see what others have snatched up, and sometimes I see things that I overlooked when I shopped the sale. For those that haven’t shopped the sale, you better get on that! This is one of the few sales that I look forward to every year because it’s all new stuff that’s majorly discounted. Such a great time to revamp your fall wardrobe, and it’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts!

Be sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of this post for the chance to win a $500 Nordstrom gift card. GOOD LUCK!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Best in Beauty

OH HAPPY DAY! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially open to everyone now through August 6th. If you missed my last Nordstrom Sale post, be sure to check that out to see my first round of favorites. As promised, I went through all the beauty exclusives and picked out my favorites for you to shop. You guys – the GloPRO is on major sale, so I finally took the plunge! It is en route to me as I type, and I cannot wait to try it! If you have been curious about microneedling and want to get it on it, now is the time. I can’t imagine it will be this discounted again any time soon. I was able to hear GloPRO founder (and fellow Dallas girl) Jamie O’Banion talk about it at the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show back in May, and I knew then and there I needed it in my life. I will be sure to let you know what I think about it, and you will most likely see an IG story or two when I try it.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives are always something I look forward to every year, and this year did not disappoint! Scroll down to shop and be sure to let me know what you will be picking up (or already have picked up)!

I love crisp whites during the summer, especially if those crisp whites have pretty crochet details. This white maxi skirt is so light and airy, and will instantly make you feel pretty and ladylike the moment you put it on. I paired it with this happy yellow tank for a little pop of color, and these precious bow mules that are oh-so-comfy and chic. It was the perfect outfit for strolling the pastel-filled streets of Charleston (which I am still missing every day). Why can’t every city be this pretty?

I know that I pretty much just got back from Charleston, but I am already craving another vacation. Story of my life! Does anyone else live in a constant state of wanderlust? I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had to travel and experience other cultures, especially since we weren’t able to go on family vacations when I was growing up. In fact, I didn’t step foot on a plane until I was 20. When I think about all the places I have been and the countries I have been able to visit during the past few years, it just doesn’t seem real. I never thought I would be able to do all the things I’ve done, and I will never ever take it for granted!

One thing Garrett and I have been really good about is putting all of our purchases on one credit card to rack up airline miles. We use it for everything, and then pay it off every month so that we don’t have to pay interest. Needless to say, I’ve got lots of airline miles burning a hole in my pocket and I want to plan a trip to Europe during the fall. So my question to you all – what cities and/or countries are on your bucket list and why? Let’s chat in the comments!

Embroidered Denim Skirt + Nordstrom Giveaway

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably fully aware that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access is in full swing! As much as I L-O-V-E this sale every year, it can be hard to get excited about fall pieces when it’s still in the 100’s outside (thanks, Texas). It’s great to go ahead and stock up on sweaters and boots while they are discounted, but I always make sure to get a handful of “wear now” items that I can transition into fall with.

This embroidered denim skirt by Topshop was one of the first things I tried on during the sale preview last week, and I knew it had to come home with me! It’s only $43.90, but will go up to $68.00 after the sale. I paired it with this grey asymmetrical tee, because ruffles. Both of these pieces can also be worn in the colder months. Throw on a pair of tights or over-the-knee boots with this skirt, and layer a chunky cardigan over the top.

I thought this grey faux leather clutch was just adorable, and at $22.90 I couldn’t pass it up. I feel like I am always in need of a grey clutch and have to opt for nude instead. Now I don’t have to! It also comes in black and burgundy, which would both be perfect for fall and winter. Go snatch it up while you can!

Just as a reminder, if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you won’t be able to see any of the items I am linking. But have no fear! The sale opens up to the public this Friday, July 21st. I suggest getting up as early as possible on Friday to snag your favorites before they sell out. Be sure to come back here and peruse my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale wishlist, and I will be updating it as items sell out and/or get restocked. It will stay up in the main menu through the end of the sale on August 6th, so you will be able to easily find it and see what I’m loving.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card! How amazing would it be to win that during the sale? Your closet will be so happy! Keep scrolling to enter, and GOOD LUCK!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Early Access Is Here!

Happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Day, y’all! It’s like Christmas in July! By the time you read this, I will probably be sound asleep after staying up all night on this post. The sale went live at 12:00am PST for Nordstrom cardholders, and oh-my-goodness there are so many great things! If you aren’t a cardholder, you won’t be able to see the items I have linked below until the sale goes public on July 21st. Go get the card so you can shop now!

I was able to physically try on some of the sale items yesterday at the Nordstrom sale preview (as you may have seen on my Instastories), and the team at Nordstrom Northpark was kind enough to send me home with lots of goodies. There are still some things I love that I’m planning to order, so stay tuned to see what else I pick up!

I really wanted to make shopping the sale easier for you by narrowing down the items that I feel are the best of the best. It can be challenging to navigate the sale, especially if you’re on a budget and want to invest wisely. There are several things from last year’s sale that I have literally worn all year, and that’s my goal for this year, too. I am all about making smart choices and not just buying to buy.

Here are some of my favorites from the sale so far, not including beauty items (that will be in another post). Happy shopping!

The Body Shaper Every Woman Needs

Jewel Toned Shapewear Intimates

Every once in a while, you come across a brand that just gets it. Jewel Toned is a shapewear brand that is all about body positivity, and they create body shapers for ALL body types. We are all different, and no matter what your body type is, it should be celebrated!

I like wearing body shapers for extra support, and to just smooth everything out so that my dresses will lay better. Jewel Toned was kind enough to send me the Major Mini Dress (which I am wearing here), and I chose the blush pink color so that I can wear it under light colored/sheer dresses. It is super comfortable, doesn’t ride up, and most importantly, I can breathe normally in it! Some shapers can be a bit brutal, and I even had to take one off during an event because I was so uncomfortable. That is NOT how it’s supposed to work! This one just softly hugs me in all the right places, and I don’t even notice that I’m wearing it!

Jewel Toned also has a line of bras and undies that are perfectly feminine and classy. I have been wearing a lot of lace bralettes lately because they are so comfortable and easy to throw on. This pink bralette is adorable, and it comes in black and grey, too!

For me, wearing a body shaper isn’t about concealing, it’s about enhancing the body you have. When you feel confident in what you’re wearing, you can take on the world. Join me and Jewel Toned in this body positivity revolution, and get excited about shapewear that helps women look and feel their absolute best!
