The biggest and most anticipated sale of the year is almost here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NSALE) is back and better than ever. In preparation for this sale I wanted to give everyone a few helpful tips and tricks to strategically shop the NSALE and a heads up that I will be posting quite a bit more than normal, so please don’t get annoyed! I’ve gotta pay those bills!
Check out the catalog before the sale actually starts!
Don’t you just love when you find new online boutiques that fit your style perfectly? I was recently introduced to Lux & the Moon and immediately knew this was going to be dangerous once I saw all of the clothes I had to have. Even more dangerous; it’s all extremely affordable! Lately, I’ve been really trying to focus on purchasing items that are totally different than anything else in my closet. I don’t really have a ton of chambray in my closets, especially tops, so when I saw the peplum and tie back detail I was hooked!

When most people think of Teva sandals, chic is definitely not a word most ladies would use to describe these shoes. Casual, comfortable, outdoorsy, and adventurous are adjectives that really come to mind when I think of the brand. When I think of Teva shoes I am immediately brought back to some of my favorite childhood memories. My dad and I would always take some of the best adventures when I had summer break from school. From road tripping to the sand dunes to mountain biking and hiking in Colorado, no adventure was too big for us. It’s amazing Teva footwear has literally been such a huge part of my life growing up that it’s almost a little emotional getting to share why I have loved them so much for so many years, from my childhood into my 30s. Now that I’m older, I can’t wait to share how I Strap Into Freedom with Teva Sandals!
When I envision a beach vacation I think of all of those corny movie clips of people slowly walking on the beach in their long dresses that are trailing behind them in the sandy water. Since our Tulum trip was right around the corner I knew I had to find a dress to recreate those shots! I mean, how can you not with that gorgeous turquoise water and white sand! After searching high and low I ended up finding the perfect dress from Reformation along with what seems like a gazillion maxi dress options that I just had to have.
Happy first day of Summer! Is it bad I thought summer was already here in Texas?? Judging from the 90-100 degree days we’ve been having it’s been hard to differentiate! This is why I need to find a summer vacation spot where I’m not profusely sweating everywhere I go. Or I just need to start dressing like I’m going to be laying out on a beach everyday! Since neither of those are viable options at this point I have to dress strategically and comfortably when you really want nothing touching your skin at all.
Happy Monday, friends! Sorry to have been completely MIA over the last 6-7 days. This past week I had the pleasure of styling a fun project for Spike TV and Carnival Cruises outside in Galveston on two different ships. Talk about being completely drained! 100 degree weather has officially hit Texas and I can’t say that I am in the least bit pleased about it. I’m just glad there was a nice breeze and was definitely more than happy it decided to rain on us a couple of times! Now, I’m back in Austin and ready to get some fun posts up for you guys! 🙂

Vacations are always such a blast until you actually have to start packing… I miss those good ole’ days before blogging when I could just throw whatever I wanted into a carry-on, not really care what I looked like and be good to go for the entire trip. Times have drastically changed and now I have to plan and prep each and every outfit but also still stay practical for what I’ll be doing on the trip. As most of y’all know, the latest trip was Tulum and talk about tough to pack for! You’d think this would be the easiest vacation but trying to think of the weather, if we’ll be exploring, do I need to dress up, etc. made things a little difficult! I know most of you gals like to still look cute no matter what you’re doing, so this post is for y’all! ☺️
Warmer temps mean warm weather vacations or days spent at the pool and if you’re like me you want to have the cutest swimwear and accessories without breaking the bank. My summertime weakness is 100% summer, floppy hats!! It’s not even a weakness but more of an addiction!! All of my straw hats have literally taken over my closet and they just keep growing and growing! Even going to Tulum, I packed EIGHT hats in my carry-on! TSA probably thought I was absolutely insane having an entire duffel full of hats and straw bags… What can I say, I love to accessorize!
We all have those days where all we want is what we can’t have. Whether it be less wrinkles, straight hair, the perfect body, long eyelashes, we’ve all been there. I was one of those people who was born with extremely long eyelashes. No idea where they came from or which family member I got them from but I really never paid any attention to them until the eyelash extension craze started a few years ago. Almost everyday someone will ask me where I get my lashes done and if I love having lash extensions. Obviously, they’re a little taken aback when I say they are 100% natural and immediately want to know my lash secrets!
Who says you can’t turn heads in black during the summer? If you know me you know I love wearing black during any and every season. No matter what monochromatic shade I chose to wear each day, I will still try and make a statement with detailing on my tops, shorts, accessories or shoes. I know a lot of people think black is too wintery looking and try and stay away from darker hues during the summer but I’m here to tell you that darker clothes can still look summery.
