Since I’m at the beach this week, I thought I’d put together a beach vacation packing post. This isn’t really a “what to pack” post as much as it is “what I packed” because I certainly don’t consider myself an authority on the subject as I haven’t been to the beach in years. Also you should know, I am a chronic over-packer and make no apologies for it.
My husband and I are switching sides of the camera today! Last summer I was given the opportunity to try out a few pairs of Maui Jim sunglasses and share the Maui Jim difference here on the blog, and it was (quite literally) love at first sight. I’ve been a huge fan of the brand ever since and I’ve been enjoying my Moonbow sunnies for well over a year now. When the holidays rolled around and I wanted to get my husband a nice gift, I was stumped.
Happy Tuesday, friends! It’s time for another edition of 5 Favorites, and today I’m going to talk about my 5 favorite pairs of summer sandals. Maybe I should divide this up into flats and heels, but I’ll go ahead and combine them so we can move on to other wardrobe items next week.
One request I get a lot is to see one item styled multiple ways. I appreciate the nudge because I tend to see things one way until I start forcing myself to think outside the box, and then I’m often surprised at how much you can do with one wardrobe item. This shirttail hem tank dress is a great wear now & later piece, so I thought I’d come up with a few styling options so you can see how versatile it is.
Good morning from Ocean City, New Jersey! We drove down yesterday along with half of Pennsylvania, I am pretty sure. The traffic was pretty gruesome, but we survived and got to our rented beach house just in time for happy hour on the deck. We’re all pretty excited to be here. The kids have been asking for a beach vacation for the past few years so we decided to finally do it, and I’m so glad we did.
As if you didn’t see enough mirror selfies yesterday (lol) I have an Instagram Roundup today! I was tempted to wait a week so I’d have more pictures, but then I decided to go ahead and post these and then do a beach edition next weekend. This will be a mish-mosh of fall and summer style due to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening during one of the hottest and most humid weeks of July on record so I hope I don’t give you whiplash. LOL! So let’s get started.
Hello, friends. Happy FRIDAY! Public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started at 3AM and things are already flying off the virtual shelves. Yesterday I updated my Guide to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post with my latest product details and recommendations since I’ve tried on a lot more of the styles since I originally wrote the post. Today I’m sharing some fall outfit inspiration from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I know it’s early to be thinking about fall, but this way you can shop these looks now if you wish, and if you like the ideas, pin these pictures to your fall fashion Pinterest board to use for outfit inspiration when the leaves start to change and Starbucks is serving pumpkin spice lattes again!
