Happy Wednesday, y’all! I hope you’re ready for Friday because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will FINALLY be open to the public! Fingers crossed that Nordy’s is restocking some of the most-loved pieces. You never know! I will be sharing a HUGE round-up of all of my purchases including pricing, sizing, and reviews Friday morning, but I wanted to pop in and share this athletic-wear look so you can snag it before these sell out for good.
While I post mostly dressier looks here on the blog, you can usually catch me in activewear on a day-to-day basis. I typically stick to black leggings because I have wide calves and printed bottoms just make me look larger. But I have heard raving reviews about Zella leggings and had to try them out while they’re on sale. Well, the hype is real! These are SO comfy and really suck you in thanks to the high waist. And the blush and gray color was too good to turn down. I am wearing a size small and the fit is perfect! I also grabbed the matching sports bra (on sale) and am wearing the look now with a loose white tank. I love that Nordstrom included some wear-now, wear-later pieces in the sale this year.
Today, I am taking a break from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale madness to share a roundup of all of my looks from my trip to Myrtle Beach last week. And while it has been so much fun to share Fall looks, we are still very much in the dead of Summer. Luckily for y’all, all of these looks are under $50, so you can snag a few looks from each season without breaking the bank!
This was our second year staying in Ocean Lakes. Please tell me some of y’all have been there before?! It is so unique! Ocean Lakes is a neighborhood and campground on the beach and everyone drives around on golf carts. Once the sun sets, folks drive their golf carts out onto the strip of road in front of the ocean and just cruise. Basically, it would be awesome if I was a 13-year-old! We had quite a few friends and family down there, so it was great to just relax and stuff our faces with seafood.
Happy Monday! I have quite a few things to be excited about today, namely, being alive. Jeremy and I took his parents sky diving yesterday and while I felt a little more confident in my survival this time, I guess the fear of jumping out of a perfectly good airplane never really goes away. (See video of my first jump/proposal HERE) I couldn’t believe how confident my in-laws were – no fear! They’re total badasses. You can check out a couple of photos HERE.
Buttttt, I am ALSO excited to share my first styled outfit from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and probably my favorite look. I didn’t realize how much I would love these blush pleated shorts until I tried them on and oh em gee are they flattering! I am wearing a size small, btw. Pockets are always a must-have and the flare to the shorts really slims my legs. Not to mention the GORG color. I LOVE how much blush pink and gray was included in the sale. I have a feeling they will be the colors of Fall and I ain’t mad about it!
I paired the shorts with my favorite $31 gray cardigan and MAJORLY discounted Tory Burch tote from the Nordstrom Sale. I have been styling these pieces with just about everything! These colors are just perfect neutrals and easy to wear now and once it gets chillier outside. But if you love this cardigan as much as me, I’d move fast! It is selling out quick!
