#Nsale $31 Dress (wear now and later)

Outfit One

Outfit Two

Good morning, ladies! I am excited to share this cute little dress from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This is one of those dresses that is perfect for now with sandals, but will also look super cute layered with a cozy cardigan and booties in the fall. 

As of right now there aren't many sizes left, but I'm hoping they will restock this little gem before the sale is over. And for sizing reference, this dress runs tts and I'm wearing the xs.

ONE // 

I'm thinking I may have gone a little book crazy on Amazon last week, y'all! My plan is to read one on the plane and another while in Mexico. Have you guys read any of these? If so, which one (or two) do you recommend I take along with me? 

TWO // 

I made these super easy baked potato rounds last weekend for a cookout we had with some friends and they were delicious. I'm pretty sure the secret is boiling them for a few minutes before you bake them...they were so tender and just melted in your mouth. 

** I swear they tasted better than they look;) 


Todd and I are flying out at 5am tomorrow morning and we should be arriving in Mexico by 10am! I seriously can't tell you guys how excited I am about this trip. I'm so ready to relax and celebrate ten years of marriage to my man! 

I'm working right now on a few post to go live while we are in Mexico, but I'm not taking my laptop with me so if I don't get them finished I'll pop in as soon as we get back. And I'm sure I will share some pictures with you all on Instagram, but I made a promise to myself to step away from my computer and the blog while we're there. 

Besides dinner reservations each evening and the two massages we have booked, we have no real plans while in Mayakoba. I am pretty darn thrilled about this. We may go snorkeling or sailing, but that's about all the activities I think we will do :) 

The pictures below are from the Fairmont Mayakoba resort where we will be staying. 

FOUR // 

Wednesday evening I had a few more items arrive from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I loved everyone of them, so I thought I would share them with you guys. 

Top runs tts and I'm wearing the xsp.

Top //  Jeans also similar here // Watch // Earrings // Booties

Top runs tts and I'm wearing the xs. The booties run tts and I'm wearing my normal 6.5. 

Pajamas run tts, but I always go up in sleepwear so I'm wearing the small. And the bra that I linked up is the "life-changing" bra that I was talking about in my video on Instastories. 

Tee runs tts and leggings run small. I'm wearing the xs in the tee and a small in the leggings. 

FIVE // 

Because this is too good not to share :) 

And on that note, so is this new wine I bought last week at Whole Foods...haha!!!

This and That

// Last Friday night at Kiawah was a blast!! So much fun matching with my mini at the Lilly Pulitzer customer appreciation event. I picked up a few pretty things to take with me to Mexico and I can't wait to share them with y'all this weekend!

Dancing on the green to the live music just like old times. 

// On Sunday we hit the pool and I started a new book. Cancel the Wedding was so good that I finished it that night! 

These crazy kiddos love their daddy to throw them as high as he can in the air. Taylor was on repeat the entire day at the pool..."Again daddy, again!"

// These shoes were just restocked and I think I need to make them mine. No, actually I know I need to make them mine :) 

You can't beat the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale price! 

// Speaking of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here are a few more pieces that came in that I'm LOVING!

// These booties are AMAZING, y'all! Trust me, you want these for fall and winter. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!

#NSale Outfit - Now and Later

Outfit One

Outfit Two

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!! 

No matter what the season, there is something so good about a simple white tee and a pair of perfect jeans. On Instagram yesterday I mentioned that Nordstrom sent me the wrong pair of Good American jeans, but I'm secretly kinda happy they did because I'm obsessed with these! And from what I can tell, the sizing details are the exact same except for the distressing on the bottom. 

That being said, I love the ones with the distressing as well, so if my size comes back in stock before the sale ends I will definitely snag them up. I mean, it's hard to find a perfect fitting pair of jeans, and for me, these are it so I plan to stock up for sure! 

And yep, this cardigan will be worn ALL fall and winter in and out of the house :)

Cardigan runs tts and I'm wearing the xs/s // Jeans run a little snug and I'm wearing the 2 // Side slit tee runs a little big and I'm wearing the xs. 

 Ruffle T-shirt Dress // Necklace // Earrings // Watch // Booties

Dress runs tts and I'm wearing the xs. 

Pajamas runs tts and I'm wearing a small (I don't like my pajamas snug so I always go up in these).

Sophia One-Piece Swimsuit 

Runs big...I'm wearing a 6 but need a 4 so go down one size in this one.

La Blanca One-Piece Swimsuit
Great top support and tummy control on this one :)

Cardigan, tee, and jeans all run a little big. For reference, I'm wearing the xs in the cardigan, the xs in the tee, and a size 25 in the jeans.

Again, cardigan and tee run a little big while the jeans run small. For reference, I'm wearing the xxs in the cardigan and a 26 in the jeans. 

I picked up this bra and this bra from the sale, and I must say, I plan on grabbing a few more and tossing out all of my old bras. I'm not even kidding, these bras are life-changing and fit so much better than any bra I have ever worn. Oh, and these jeans feel like butter and the high waist is amazing! 

This is pretty much my daily uniform in or out of the gym :) Hoodie run tts, while leggings and tank run small. For reference, I'm wearing an xs in the hoodie, a small in the tank, and also a small in the leggings. 

The softest cardigan you will ever's the same brand and material of my beloved Barefoot Dreams circle cardigan.

Lace Top // Crop Skinny Jeans (only $38) 

Fleece top runs big and the jeans run a little small. For reference, I'm wearing the xs in the top and a 26 in the jeans.
