Hello friends! It hit me pretty recently that it has been quite a while since the last time I did a haul. Sephora is my guilty pleasure; I love picking up old favorites along with testing out new products that catch my eye. Though I love going into the actual Sephora stores and swatching 500 different colors on my hands, online shopping is just a lot more realistic route for me. One thing I love about Sephora is the option to select free samples and snag different promos with every order. The free two-day shipping as a VIP rouge is a big selling point for me as well. When it comes to beauty retailers, I am pretty biased. About three weeks ago I ordered a few things from Sephora, and I wanted to share my thoughts and opinions today on the products I picked up!
Hello, hello & happy end of July! August is here, and summer is still under way. I am SO excited for August; I can’t hold it back any longer. With Outside Lands music festival, Vans Warped Tour, and a trip to Maui around the corner, there are so many things I am looking forward to. This past month went by pretty slowly for me, but it has been a great past few weeks because I have been enjoying ample time with my fam! I got to see my sister this month, which is my favorite thing in the entire world, and it’s always so nice to catch up!
During the month of July, I definitely found some new (and incredible) finds. From chic shoes to a stunning eyeshadow palette, I have rounded up some of my must-haves this past month. Without further ado, here are my July faves:
one. suede slip-ons (under $100) / two. nude mules (under $100) / three. fedora hat (under $100) / four. embroidered shift dress (sold out on the nSale, still available full-price here) / five. busted jeans (under $100 + true to size) / six. white culotte pants (under $100) / seven. cardigan / eight. velvet sweater (under $40) / nine. cropped denim jacket / ten. luna night oil / eleven. coconut pear chapstick / twelve. too faced peach palette / thirteen. brow mascara
• • •I had three favorite accessories this month – two of them being shoes! It is now secret that I am an avid shoe collector. I rarely purchase new bags or jewelry pieces; instead, I can’t keep myself away from shoes. My two favorites pairs this month were these blush pink slide sneakers and these nude mules. I have been wearing both of them nonstop – especially to the office. I like that they can both be dressed up or dressed down, and they are such soft, feminine hues. They are understated shades that still pack a bit of punch. Now for the hat. I chatted about this hat in my ‘Sunflower Hour’ post, and I still adore this chic piece. I am SO excited to bring it on my upcoming vacay, and it has a way of making any outfit look just a little more put together (even when you haven’t washed your hair in six days… not like I do that or anything 😉 ).
Hello, hello & happy Monday! Can somebody please tell me how weekends fly by so quickly?! Apologies that I am just now getting this post up. I took these photos the same day that I took the pics from my Apartment Tour: Bedroom post, and I am so excited to share them with you all today! Thank you SO much for all of the love and support I received on my Bedroom Tour post; you guys have no idea how much it means to me! I have been LOVING my new apartment. I am a big believer that the space you live in can really make the world of difference. Shopping for furniture for the first time in my life was definitely no easy challenge.
Hello friends & happy Saturday! It’s that time of year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! If you are a Nordstrom Card Holder, definitely start shopping now before it opens up to the public (things tend to go out of stock!). Over the years, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always been an early back-to-school shopping outing for my family. It’s such a great time to stock up on pieces for the upcoming season- at an awesome price! Even though I am not going back to school this fall (which is the strangest thing to say out loud), I am especially excited about the sale this year. San Francisco is pretty chilly, and our summer feels like fall most of the time. Most sales tend to be end-of-season, but it’s nice that Nordstrom does their big one right before the season starts. The selection this year is stellar, and I have already ordered a few of the pieces from the sale!
Without further ado, here are a few of my favorite picks from this year’s sale:one. satin ruffle hem romper / two. embroidered crossbody bag / three. suede mules / four. high neck midi dress / five. spot strappy jumpsuitsuit / six. military jacket / seven. ruffle bell sleeve blouse (ordered this in the black and the blue) / eight. ripped denim jacket / nine. tie front blouse / ten. embroidered chambray shirt / eleven. bell sleeve blouse / twelve. stripe bell sleeve top / thirteen. over the knee boots (just ordered this exact pair!)
The big trends this year definitely seem to be bell sleeves/ruffle sleeves, anything and everything light pink, and booties. I ordered this long sleeve blouse in two colors (which will be perfect for work!) and these amazing, suede over the knee boots. I am so incredibly excited to get them in the mail very soon, and I know will get tons of use out of them all year! Tomorrow I am heading to the Nordstrom store in Palo Alto when my mom gets in town, and I can’t wait to browse the selection in person. This is definitely the time to stock up on basic essentials that you will wear and love all fall!
Let me know what you’ve been eyeing from this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
