SHOP: Leopard Tank | Sunglasses | Necklace

Happy Monday friends! I woke up this morning in very, very desperate need of coffee. Lots of coffee! To find out I had zero coffee. No k-cups. No coffee beans. Nada! That is not the way to start a Monday, let me tell ya. I bee-lined it to Starbucks for a venti and I’m feeling alive finally.

We spent the weekend in Tahoe. It was the 4th weekend in a row we’ve been in Tahoe. As much as I love it at the cabin, I’m jones’n for a stay at home weekend. We got a chill week and I’m excited to kick it a home as much as possible. And catch up on laundry! ha!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Share all the amazing sale finds
  • How to have more fun during the summer weekdays
  • Work in the yard
  • Pull 10 items from my closet to sell
  • Try a new salad recipe
  • Lemon table + lemon granita
  • Date night with Bay to see Lion King
  • Hang out at home
  • Log food in my Weight Watchers app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water

Highlights from the weekend……..

SHOP: Chambray Top (40% off) | White Denim Shorts (40% off)| Sunnies

Today is a great day because:

  1. It’s FRIDAYYYYY!
  2. The BIGGEST and best sale of the year starts today! Nordstrom Anniversary sale. AKA #nsale

I’m sure you’re being inundated with all the things Nordy’s today. But, this is kind of a big deal.

Here’s some info for those of you shopping the sale today…….

Early Access for Cardholders: July 12 – July 18 (online + in store)

Public Access: July 19 – August 4 (online + in store)

Pro Tip: I’ll update this post again with new finds and treasures once the sale goes live for Public Access. Make sure to visit this post again for all the live updates.  You may want to order things right away instead of leaving them in your cart for a long time, because they WILL sell out. Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, plus you can choose the Buy Online and Pick-Up in Store option while adding items to your cart. When you do an in-store pick-up, Nordstrom is offering a $10 Nordstrom Reward PER ORDER! I usually end up having a few orders to be able to shop while they’re in stock.

If you are NOT a cardholder, you can apply today and have immediate access to the sale before it hit the Public next Friday. That’s one whole week. Nordstrom Card Application: Norstrom Card

I’m sharing all my top picks with you today!

Happy shopping everyone!

Would you rather…..

Give up cocktails or coffee?

Tell me, I wanna know.

For me, this is a VERY hard one. But, I’m going with giving up cocktails…..I think?

{summer dresses}

Dress (on sale) | Clogs (on sale) | Choker Sunglasses | Clutch (similar)

Dress season is upon us ladies. I’ve got you covered with dress options that wont break the bank. And will get you though wedding + shower + graduation + brunch season.

Remember my Seersucker dress from last week: {list of loves} It’s currently marked down from $90 to $23! Swear! And it’s such an easy to wear dress.

I scoured my favorite online stores for dresses that I would totally rock. Think J.Crew. Madewell. Nordstrom. Old Navy. American Eagle. Target. You name it. Not only dresses that I dig, but dresses that also have a decent price tag.

I broke them down by length. You’ll have to let me know if that’s helpful.

You can shop each item by clicking on the images below……

{weekend notes}

Good morning! Happy June! It’s officially the last week of school. Which basically equals = shit show. So many things happening as we wrap up the school year.

I accidentally deleted my on going to-do list on my phone. Like it’s gone, gone. I checked my deleted and it’s not even there to restore. At first, I was really, really stressin. Like sweat stressing. After I realized there is nothing at all I can do about it….It was kind of reveling. I’m sure there will be something I forget to do, but it’s okay.

Intentions for the Week:

  • celebrate my girl Nicole’s Birthday
  • fill in my June calendar with ALL THE THINGS
  • hit the gym mon – fri
  • hang with my nephews
  • sit by the pool
  • go to bed at a decent hour (why do I wanna be a night owl lately?)
  • listen to Bay give her Treasurer speech
  • wash all the windows + sliders (it’s amazing what a difference it makes)

This week on xoxostacyb: Putting the finishing touches on my Father’s Day Gift Guide. Hoping to squeeze in a recipe. Tips on how to have a better Monday. And we’ll see what else I can come up with…lol!

{weekend notes}

Well hello to the Monday-ist Tuesday there ever was!

Question: If you could drop everything today, and travel anywhere in the world…..where would you go?

Mine will forever be Italy. I love experiencing new places. Near or far! Taking photos. Walking around. Currently suffering from Major Wanderlust, can you tell? But, sitting at this beach did the trick this weekend.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Work on our Summer Bucket List
  • Dedicate an evening to all our fave self care
  • Plan out Bay’s summer (babysitting + camps + vacay’s)
  • Make some bomb.com dinner’s
  • Finish Girl, Stop Apologizing (such a great book)
  • American Eagle Try-On…they’ve got some cute shit!!!
  • Finishing touches on the front porch
  • Father’s Day gift guide for all the dudes in our lives
  • Count my Macros + log everything
  • Chill Out!

This week on xoxostacyb: You got my {Italian Salad} yesterday, and I truly apologize that it posted without the actual recipe yesterday. On my end it looked as though everything was just so, but I used a “page break” instead of a “read more” option. Which cut off the ingredients + directions. It’s corrected now! Other posts coming this week….my front porch refresh. Some fun dresses that wont break the bank. And maybe even a salmon recipe.

Highlights from the long weekend…..

We stopped at Bridal Veil Falls on our way to Tahoe Friday. It was the largest I’ve ever seen it in my years of driving to the cabin.

{a little of this + a little of that}

Dress (on sale) | Denim Jacket (on sale) | Hat | Sunglasses | Necklace

Good Morning friends. It’s kind of hard to believe THIS weekend is Memorial Day.

I’m still on my NO online shopping this week kick. Totally knowing this sale was going to happen.

I had something completely different planned for today, but when I woke up and saw everything that was already SOLD OUT on the NSALE….change of plans. You gotta jump on it Mama’s. If there is something you want. Get it. Get it quick. Remember – Nordstrom has the very best customer service. If you get something and change your mind. Or just don’t like it as much as you initially thought, return it! It’s FREE! Just use the return UPS slip in your package and you’re good to go. But, I promise you one thing…..

ALL the good shit will be gone in the blink of the eye.

And for those of you that give zero fucks for the Nordstrom sale……

a little of this + a little of that //

As I was typing this blog post, I saw in the top corner the number 887. This my friends, is my 887th post! So nuts!

Question: What’s your Taco Bell order? We’ve all got one, right? Mine: beefy 5-layer burrito lots of mild sauce and a crunchy taco. Sometimes I get real wild and ask for chips + guac too!
