{10 summer closet staples}

IMG_9145

I love the simplicity of Summer clothing.  Summer attire is so basic + minimal compared to other seasons which involve lots of layers + footwear.  With a few basic pieces, you can mix and match your closet with endless options!

So, today I thought I’d share some of my tried + true summer closet staples.

You know, ALL THE THINGS I believe every girls needs!  And things that can be worn over and over throughout the Summer!

But, before we get started – Let’s chat about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  If you follow fashion bloggers on Instagram, then you’ve already been overloaded with so much info.  So, I’ll spare you the overwhelming shit and keep it simple with 3 quick tips to help you navigate the sale, if you’re into it!

  1. Shop early!  Meaning, you must become a Nordstrom Card Holder!!!  This will grant you “Early Access!”  As in 8 days before the public aka non card holders.  You get a $40 credit upon approval and lots of perks year round too!  Typically, once the Anniversary Sale opens to the public on the 20th, sizes + colors + top items are sold out or wayy picked over.  So, if there is something you HAVE TO HAVE, this is the way to insure you get your pretty little hands on it!
  2. Add to Cart!  You can preview the sale here: 2018 Anniversary Sale – Preview.  This is not everything that will be on sale, this is just a sample.  I like to do a closet clean-out and toss/sale everything I know for a fact that I will not be wearing come Fall.  Reminder – the Anni sale is mainly Fall New Arrivals.  Stick everything you LOVE in your shopping cart! And patiently wait.  The worst part!
  3. Shop online!  Grab a cup of coffee and sit down with your computer Thursday morning.  Don’t even think of messing with the crowds.  If you want it – BUY IT!  You can always return, but you legit gotta act fast.  Nordy’s offers FREE shipping + FREE returns.  Their website it super user-friendly.  OR you can always buy online and do an in-store pick-up.  Technically you don’t even have to get out of your car.  They will bring it out to you!

With these tips, you should be ready to shop till you drop!  Set your alarms for Thursday morning friends!!

 

And now for 10 summer closet staples……

{june in review}

It’s Thursday, but man, it sure feels like a Monday.  Right?  Grateful AF tomorrow is Friday though.  Mid-week Holidays can really screw things up.  I’m all out of sorts today.

But I wanted to pop in and share a June review.  In case you missed it, June was another busy month.  Twenty one blog posts.  With a mixture of a little of this + a little of that.  Recipes.  Cute tops.  Weekend highlights.  Intentions.

{current closet faves}

Happy Thursday peeps.  I did another grocery store pick-up today.  Which allowed me to spend my lunch break doing more important things.  You know, like tan.  Go to the post office + bank.  And grab an iced coffee from Starbucks.  Try it out!  I’m telling you it’s so legit.  I was able to stock our house for next weeks meals + grab everything we need for our camping trip tomorrow.

I’ve been trying out Time Batching this week.  I can’t say too much, I really haven’t mastered this time-management hack just yet.  What I can say, is the time batching that I have done throughout the day has helped me focus and be productive AF.  Stay tuned though, I want to tell you all about it.  Once I’ve mastered the art of Time Batching.

But, what I’m really here to tell you all about today……

Current Closet Faves //  Denim that fits like a glove.  Colored top.  Sunnies, always sunnies.  Mustard Mules.  A neutral clutch to even out all that yellow.  And a cute little necklace on the side.

Too much?   Nahhh!

You guys, I’m all about the burnt yellow.  Spicy Mustard.  Saffron.  Canary.  Like BIG TIME!  Yesterday was all the orangy hues, but what can I say…today is a new day!  I accidentally picked up two yellowy items this week, and I love them so much, that I’m gonna tell you all about them.

If wearing too much yellow is wrong, then I don’t wanna be right!

From the ever so trendy bucket bag, to the classic tote, don’t forget the comfy crossbody and how about a backpack bag? .  Check out these springy neutral colored bags.  I’ve gathered some of my top favorites in stores now.  I even threw in a couple Target finds.  Bet you can’t guess which ones there are?  I now have online shopping carts full of these beauties and can’t decide which one I want to rock.  I’m leaning toward the bucket, but then the backpack yells “pick me, pick me!!”  And I’m lost again.  LOL.  Real problems folks!!

Whoop Whoop!  Happy Friday!

This week flew by, mainly because we were so busy.  Next week I foresee a nice slow week.  Yesss!

So, it’s Friday and you know the drill.

5 things on my mind today:

ONE – Number one obviously had to be Blake Shelton + Gwen Stefani.  It’s all over the headlines.  Even the CMA awards made a couple funny jabs.  Sorry Miranda, but I’m totally diggin this!  There is “No Doubt” this is the new power couple.  What will we call them?  Glake? Gwake? Blwen?  Did you hear they wrote a country ballad together that is about telling a lover to leave the relationship if that is what they truly want?  Can’t wait for that one to be released!!
