Fashion Friday: The Nordstrom Sale Women, Kids & Home Picks!

The big Nordstrom sale is now live for everyone and I have been surprised by how many good items are available- many new arrivals for fall (which I personally can’t wait for- humid summer weather is not my jam).  So I pulled together awesome picks for women, kids and home (ran out of time and steam for men- sorry dudes.)

WOMEN- I know it’s hard, but consider snapping up a great coat for fall because there are a bunch of great ones. :) And they even included tons of designer denim, my favorite J. Crew REgent blazer (whaaaaaaat?) and those Hunter boots I’m dying for.


KIDS- A smaller sale, but some good stuff to stock up on like jeans and shoes! You knwo how fast they grow out of both of those things!

HOME- Nordstrom isn’t known for home goods, but they have some great stuff from rugs (Dash & Albert even!), bedding and tabletop

Fashion Friday: Bastille Day- French Girl Picks!

image from @adenorah (I personally am dying over her feed)

Today is Bastille Day, and as someone who loves all things French (especially their style) I wanted to round up some great items (many of which I have recently purchased and can vouch for) that remind me of simple, cool French girl style.

Of Note:

**That striped tee is $22.50 and THE BEST OUT THERE. I should know, I have 837 striped t-shirts.

** Sezane is a fab brand from France I love and the embroidered black tee and cute white dress are part of their summer sale. Check it out.

** The leather sandals are from my fave shoe peeps M. Gemi who is also having a very rare sale. I have these on my feet right now and luuuuuurve them. Hurry, sizes sell out so fast!

** I am also wearing that lace front J.Crew Factory sweater now (with white jeans and sandals above).  At $44.50 it’s better than the regular J. Crew version.

** The makeup is part of the NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg (essential French style icon) collection.  Both classic, perfect products for that flushed/dewy cheek and smokey eye.

** The white button down is actually a bodysuit. I have it and its great (even for tall girls) to pair with high waisted skirts or wide leg pants.

** I also have the green bathing suit– LOVE. Flattering, good coverage and yet sexy and fashion forward!!!

** The swing dress is also something I bought– it HAS POCKETS and is comfy, affordable and looks great paired with a denim jacket.

Fashion Friday: Check Mate.

As I try to pack my car today with the 87,452 things I need to travel with a toddler, I’ll leave you for the long holiday break with THE pattern of the moment. Gingham.  Always a classic in my mind, but SUPER hot this summer. Like, a blazing sidewalk on a 98 degree day hot.  And perfectly perfect for the July 4th weekend. Have a wonderful time celebrating and relaxing everyone.

Fashion Friday: Classic New England Summer Outfits

Last weekend Andrew and I spent a glorious weekend alone at the incredible Wequassett Resort in Chatham on the Cape. Whenever I spend time in the Cape and Islands I am reminded of my love for the classic, preppy-with-a-twist New England way of dressing. It’s so happy and lovely to not see ironic acid washed mom jeans and crop tops everywhere.  I partnered up with Halsbrook, one of my favorite sources for this kind of look, to craft some top to bottom outfits inspired by my Cape weekend- not over the top preppy but rather a comfortable blend of hip and timeless. Think Kate Middleton meets Olivia Palermo.I want ALL of these looks in my closet NOW.

They are also having an awesome summer sale right now- you can score some seriously great stuff!  Get an extra 30% off sale items now with code SUMMER30! Happy shopping (and happy Father’s Day weekend!)

Fashion Friday: 14 Perfect Summer Weekender Bags

Summer is a great time to get away on weekends, and why not do it in style instead of in your fraying circa 1997 Vera Bradley duffle (fun fact- one of these below is a NEW VB bag! She’s back ladies!)

I have two weekenders I love (#7 and #9)- both really sturdy and hold the perfect amount for two nights away or a quick business trip.  Although I am pretty obsessed with the Wes Anderson Darjeeling Limited vibe of #2 ( I was straight up in love with the luggage in the movie).

1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. //10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14.

Also as a side note, I found the perfect slip on sandal for summer for $88. They have a very Hermes vibe and come in lots of colors. In love.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!
