Good morning! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. The last week or so has been crazy for me, what with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and getting ready to start my new job in Charlotte! It’s a weird feeling to juggle between basically two full-time jobs again, but I learn so much about myself and my strategy abilities in the meantime!

For those of you who live in the South, you know how ridiculously hot this summer has been. This past weekend was one of the hottest yet! I tried to stay as cool as possible in some of my favorite cutoffs and a breezy blouse. I love how feminine this top is – lace and peplum included! This is an old top from Joe Fresh but I finally found a top that’s super similar for under $100!

A recent find that I’m obsessed with right now are these lace-up sandals. I love the block heel and the fact that it’s modest so I can actually get away with wearing them to the office. They’re also perfect for daytime and dressed up at night with a romper or dress!

5 Striped Staples You Need

Stripe Tee (identical, love this version too!) // Shorts // Eyewear // Watch // Cardigan (under $40) 

I absolutely love wearing anything striped during the summer! It’s a look that’s clean, crisp, and classic no matter how it’s styled. I’m constantly drawn towards soft and versatile pieces that can be worn multiple ways. Since those sort of looks receive so much love on Instagram, I’m sharing my top 5 striped staples, many that will transition into other seasons!

The simple tee/tank

I own more striped tees than I’d care to admit! Wear them with cutoffs and sandals OR with booties, denim and a soft cardigan for fall!

The swing dress

When it comes to comfort, there’s nothing I love more than a swing dress. I wear them with sandals to run errands and dress them up with wedges for nighttime. *A little tip – since they’re so soft, tie one side in a knot to create a top! This one is my absolute favorite!

The swimsuit

LOVE the look of a clean stripe on a bathing suit. I just ordered this off shoulder bikini top (under $30!) and I can’t wait to pair it with all kinds of different colored bottoms!

The romper

I’m all about a romper this summer. It’s one of those rare pieces that are both super simple AND uber feminine. My favorite is this Madewell romper. How cute are the ruffles around the neckline?!

The sweater

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (which goes public tomorrow, by the way – meaning you don’t have to be a cardholder to shop the sale!) really got me in the mood to start buying pieces in advance for my fall wardrobe. I’m all about a soft sweater you can wear on cold nights during the summer (I always bring options with me on vacation and I ALWAYS end up wearing them) and wear well into fall and winter! This sweater is super classic – I throw it on with a pair of white cutoffs when it’s chilly!

Instagram Lately – Weekend Recap

instagramrecap

Good morning! I hope you all had a nice weekend. My weekend was spent relaxing since this week will be ridiculously busy as far as creating content goes. I begin my new job in Charlotte next Monday, so it’s blogger crunch time!

I wanted to provide a quick Instagram roundup from the weekend, since so much was going on! I received questions about sizing on a few items and lots of questions about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Madewell tank (on super sale! fits TTS) // H&M cutoffs (unfortunately they’re not online, but these are super similar!) and sunglasses (love these) // Madewell sneakers (sold out but these are almost identical and on sale!) // Street Level tote (my go-to bag for everything!)

* This Madewell cardigan is one of the most popular pieces I’ve ever worn. I’m always looking for similar cardis so I was SO psyched to find an identical option from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

BP. cardigan (fits TTS) // Lush pocket tee (identical to photo top – I bought white and grey – such a staple and under $20!) // Madewell necklace // Treasure & Bond shorts (similar) // OPI ‘Tiramisu for two’ (My go-to summer polish, I get so many questions about this color on Instagram!)

*After posting this photo to Instagram, a lot of you guys asked me to give my feedback on the Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask once I gave it a whirl. In my opinion, this mask is worth EVERY cent. After reading lots of reviews, I decided to give it a try. I never really had issues with breakouts until about six months ago when I started trying a more wide variety of makeup. I have very sensitive skin, so I’ve looked all over for something that will soothe my skin and clear sudden breakouts. I’ve used the mask twice and have already seen a huge difference! It’s a little more expensive than your usual face mask, but I think the tube will last at least a few months so it’s absolutely worth it!

Kate Somerville EradiKate Mask (great for blackheads and breakouts) // Dior Addict Milky Tint ‘Plum’ (very subtle, I think it makes my lips look plumper) // IT Cosmetics Foundation brush (similar) // NARS ‘Orgasm’ blush // Laura Mercier translucent powder (I swear by this!) // Bobbi Brown Eye Opening mascara // NARS creamy concealer ‘Custard’ // MAC Mineralize Skinfinish ‘Soft & Gentle’ // H&M sunglasses (similar) // Faux fur rug
