Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks 2017

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!

xoxo,

Hello & happy Sunday! I hope you’re having an awesome weekend. Mine definitely flew by; that’s for sure. Today I wanted to share some stunning photos that @byrdphotography took in San Francisco [on the side of the highway and at Twin Peaks, to be exact]. His work is seriously gorgeous, and I would highly recommend checking his insta out ASAP.

Apartment Tour: Bedroom

Hello friends & happy Sunday! I apologize that I am just now getting this post up; I have been crazy, crazy busy these past few weeks with my new job & catching up with friends. Living in Silicon Valley for the 3rd time now has been a complete dream so far. I can not begin to even describe how at home I feel here in California, and I can’t even put into words how exciting it feels to be back. Last summer, I shared my summer apartment tour, but it wasn’t too thorough because I rented my furniture and was very limited on the things that I could bring. I had so much fun decorating my apartment this time around now that this place is a little more permanent than both my summer apartment and my college apartment. My dad and I moved in about a month ago, and June has been just flying by. Getting settled in and unpacked was definitely a process in itself, but it feels so good to have everything 100% done. Today I wanted to share my new apartment with you guys! I am really happy with the way it turned out, and it feels SO homey. I have linked everything below each picture along with little details about each section!

Without further ado, hello MTV & welcome to my crib:

white dresser // white mirror (from HomeGoods linked similar online option)

I absolutely love this part of my room. Finding a great dresser was definitely a little challenging, especially because my room isn’t very big. I wanted something crisp and white to really brighten up the room. Because I don’t have a lot of closet space, I wanted a six drawer dresser so that I could really hold a lot of things (like workout clothes, pajamas, etc.). This one definitely holds more than I expected, and I am very happy with it. I really love the white mirror as well- it is very cohesive! I purchased it from HomeGoods!

blue & white vase (from HomeGoods- linked similar, online option)

I absolutely love this blue and white vase. It is simple, but adds a really nice touch. It reminds me a little of Greece. The dresser felt a little empty for a while, and I having a medium sized decor piece can really help fill some of that space! My mom gave it to me as a gift, and I think it is gorgeous.
