Let me start this post by saying whoa. The woman's body is mind-blowingly impressive, and for one, I had no idea I was capable of making it a full year around the sun with breastfeeding. I will also say that it was one of the hardest things I have ever done and yet I would do it again. I sat down to write this post over fifteen times that I can recall, so there were many more than that when you factor in the mom brain that I am currently rocking!
Hello. It has been a while since I have shared a life update and I have so very much missed writing, and I have missed hearing from all of you. Life has been moving at the speed of a bullet train, and to say I have had a few tears lately is an understatement. I am currently sitting in bed with mascara rolling down my cheeks half tired half emotional wondering if this post will publish in July or if I will miss it altogether and move right into his one year birthday? We will see but lately setting goals and watching them burn been more common than not. Anyone else who relates?
I love a good sale and every single year Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale seems to tell me all the things I didn't know I needed! I spent a lot of time looking through every page and questioning what would be of most value in my closet and yours? I find sales like this to be overwhelming at times, especially with over 35 pages to scroll through and assess. That's cute, but I have something similar, or I like it, but the good news is I have done it for you! Below I am rounding up my top 50 items from the sale that aren't trendy, but reliable items every woman needs or should have in her closet! A good Longchamp, bootie, chunky sweater, winter coat, plaid coat, denim, and more. You can mix and match and create multiple outfits using the combinations below.
Hello, warmer temperatures and welcome sandal season! I cannot tell you how happy my feet feel when it is time to pull out the sandals and head outdoors. This spring has been long awaited, and you better believe we will be living outside as long as mother nature will allow! And nothing brings joy like spring and summer wardrobes filled with the hottest shoe trends. Mules, wedges, open-toed heels just to name a few! The options are endless, especially since DSW has everything to keep you on trend and in budget! Read below on how I am styling all my favorite spring and summer looks with DSW.
What to give mom is always the hardest question of the year! Mother's Day always seems to sneak up on all of us and yet it is on the calendar for all of us to see every year after year. It is my very first Mother's Day! I still cannot believe it! A list complied with love for all the mamas in your life. Of course, all items are hand selected by me, and I hope this helps no matter the occasion. You can always come back to list if you need a little something special for yourself, your best friend, grandmother, bhday, new mama, whatever it is here! Gift Guides are one of my all-time favorite parts of the blog, and nothing makes me happier than hopefully making your shopping a little easier!
