With fall slowly approaching I love updating my wardrobe with key staple pieces that can be reused over and over yet the outfit doesnt seem the same! Today I share my one key staple Blazer and style it 8 different ways!
Happy Friday! Today ALL cardholders can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I wont have time to go in store and do a try on as I’m in the middle of working on a few exciting things that I cant wait to share with you. However, I wanted to put together a few of my personal style picks for inspo that I would personally purchase and wear in a world where “budget” and “parenting” did NOT exist 😂
P.s you can click on any pic below to shop via LTK
Nordstrom has been having a huge sale on their new collection pieces for years now! And they still have this stupid tier system in place. I honestly think that if people can spend 10k and up thru out the year on items at Nordstrom then they dont need to be first to shop the sale PERIODT! 😂 Seriously tho, today is the first day Ambassador tiers can shop the sale. If you are ambassador status and missed my previous post you can check it out HERE.
However todays post is for everyone who cant shop the sale just yet but still want to stay on trend and score some nice deals and pieces. I found a few Nordstrom inspired looks that are all super affordable and you can get them NOW!
HAPPY NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY ! Today marks the 1st day of access to the sale for ICON members only! Many of you will not be in this tier (including me) but I always find it helpful to go over all the items and save my picks for when I am able to shop the sale. A lot of my faves from last year are also included in the sale so I will link a blog post I did for last year HERE.
#NSALE 2021 Sneak Peek |Everything you need to know to shop the sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most anticipated sales of the year for shoppers, featuring products at incredible prices across every department. Yesterday July 6th, Nordstrom gave everyone a sneak peek at sale items prior to the start of the event which will begin July 12th for certain card holders. Which, depending on the tier of their card status have the opportunity to shop the sale during Early Access. I did a full funny blog post last year making fun of the whole tier system and comparing it to a high-school hierarchy LOL. You can read it HERE.
Now, in MY opinion the sale is so ridiculous to have these tier systems put in to place to begin with So I will NOT be shopping too much of the sale and also because I closed my Nordstrom credit card account to be part of the debt free community. So I probably wont be able to access the sale until public access anyways and by that time everything is usually out of stock. Any-who this blog post is specifically showcasing just a Sneak peek of a few of the items that I saw and loved. In my experience however, if you plan on shopping the sale, now is the time to add your fave items to your wishlist so you have full and easy access to them when the sale goes live. I plan on doing another post for high ticket items I think will sell out the quickest as well as what’s in my wishlist. And of course if I do purchase anything from the sale I will be sure to include that as well.

For me, the best Sephora order always starts with a wish list of products I wanted to try. Also, Over several visits, LOL I always refine my list to include only products that I think would look great on me. It is always such a thrilling experience.

I’m hoping you have a great start to your week and here is my Sephora haul for this month…BTW!! Ummm HAPPY JULY!!! Can you even?? Like where did the time go right??! 😱
THIS travel makeup bag holds all my must-haves, all stashed in 1 handy bag! When I travel, I typically dont want to wear a full face of makeup let alone full coverage foundation.

Here is a product breakdown of my must have travel essentials needed to create a nice low key, no makeup makeup look…

Ok now that we have gotten all the basics out of the way. Let me just tell you, this has become my FAVORITE foundation! First I love any and everything that has hyaluronic acid in it ok! And the fact that there is niacin-amide to help brighten and reduce pores automatically makes this foundation my best friend?!!! Its soooo lightweight and feels like you aren’t wearing anything. It comes in 30 shades, I am in shade 54H deep honey. Its medium coverage so its perfect for on the go activities that merit a more no makep makeup look. Its also buildable so if you want a bit more coverage you can totally achieve it. I took it one step further to see if it woukd pass the ultimate test and wore it for a shoot outside in natural lighting and it looks soooo bomb OMG! Gives you such a beautiful and nice glow, perfect for summer out by the pool or beach. It does not move or cake up. The functionality and wearability of this foundation is honestly up their with some of the best foundations I have ever used. Also as always this product is vegan and dermatologist tested. Its also sweatproof, waterproof and gives you 12 hour hydration along with 16 hour wearability.

As we start to get ready for warmer weather. Naturally shorts would be on the list of items you want to purchase. With the many different brands, options and cost it can be so difficult tho. So when I find great-looking, high quality shorts that are comfortable and affordable I have to share.
These distressed high waisted denim shorts are sooo good! They fit comfortably have a lil bit of stretch to them and look designer but a fraction of the price. They are currently on sale so thats a bonus! They also feature distressed hem which I really love on any type of denim.
You can find great inexpensive denim shorts regardless of if you’re a guy or gal. And just like a high end pair, they can last forever if you take care of them. If you haven’t got a go to pair of shorts that you can wear over and over again why not check out these denim short selections Here
