The Nordstrom half-yearly sale just started and there are so many great pieces for summer up to 40% off! The sale goes through June 4th so I thought I would share my 10 summer must haves! I suggest jumping onto the site quickly to have your choice of sizes as items are already selling out. I have been shopping at Nordstrom for about 2 years and the free shipping and free returns are so ideal that it just makes sense to shop there. The customer service is seriously on point!
Happy Monday! I love these types of weeks, the workdays are busy but not overwhelming so I can get out at a reasonable hour. Then I head home to cook dinner or head to the gym. Or to sit on the couch and catch up on Bachelor in Paradise. 😉 Recently, I tried a Strong by Zumba class… anyone else try one before? I take Zumba classes and really like them, but this class was different to say the least. Anything that involves burpees is not my cup of tea! 😉 I made it through but was SO sore the next day, I could barely sit down! I haven’t been on my A-game when it comes to consistently going to the gym since I got back from my honeymoon. Which was almost 4 months ago…. But now I am trying to get back into a routine. I decided it was new sneaker time!
New Sneaker Time
In order to help transition to my gym routine, I decided it was time for new sneakers. My current pair is worn in the soles and has NO cushioning. A lot of physical activity was causing my feet, especially my heels, to hurt! Which definitely made me avoid the gym at all costs. I did a ton of research to find a new pair of sneakers. There are so many options, but I decided on the ASICS Gel-Exalt 2 Running Shoe!
Happy Sunday! I can’t believe this is the last weekend in August! September is right around the corner and cool weather will soon be coming too. I have never been a big fan of fall because it always meant anxiously returning to school. But, now that I am older I look forward to apple picking, riding boots, and crisp mornings. Even though it’s still humid and in the 90s here, I couldn’t resist going through recent purchases and my favorite fall pieces from last year. This black and gray casual fall outfit is perfect for any day of the week.
Black and Gray Casual Fall Outfit
I picked up this side slit turtleneck tunic by Madison & Berkeley during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. It’s super soft, comes in four different colors, and can be worn with leggings since it covers my butt! Perfect sweater for transitioning into fall.
I wear these dark wash jeans all the time from Loft. Since I am tall, finding jeans that are long enough even after I wash them is always a struggle. Not only does Loft have Petite, Regular, and Tall lengths… the styles come in Modern and Curvy fit. Curvy gives a little bit more stretch in the hip area, which is perfect! 🙂 I’ve linked the exact pair, Curvy Skinny Jeans in Dark Indigo Wash here. If the current price is out of your budget, Loft frequently has at least 40% off sales so check the website or store often.
These Ivanka Trump black booties were a staple in my wardrobe last year. The worn toe and heel added dimension with the leather and buckles. I will definitely be wearing them again – they go great with skinny jeans or dresses and skirts with tights. There are similar black suede booties linked here since the ones I have pictured are no longer available. I love these Tandem Booties by BP because they come in 5 different colors. The brown suede is definitely on my wish list! 🙂
Gold has made a comeback in my closet. I used to only wear silver pieces but I love the contrast gold provides to a neutral outfit. Bangles from Kate Spade are my favorite and these studs from Francesca’s Collections go with any outfit, similar linked here. I splurged on this YSL lipstick and it’s a gorgeous color in nude beige that’s extremely smooth and lightweight. It doesn’t weigh down my lips!
Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your weekend!
Hi there! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Today was my “Monday” since I took a long weekend and it was tough to get up this morning! My husband kept trying to get me out of bed and ready for work but I wanted to just relax under the covers. The weather today and this past weekend was gorgeous – blue sky, bright sun, and cool breeze. On Sunday we went to Hornstra Farms, which I’ll recap in a future post, and I wore my favorite summer maxi dress!
