I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it was already Nsale time again! 👀😲Has it really already been a YEAR?! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is probably the biggest online retail sale of the year, and I plan to take full advantage. 😈
I have to say though, last year I was a bit underwhelmed by the sale (especially for all that hype 🙄). I think it was partly because product sells SO fast, that if you’re not on it at the V beginning it’s slim pickings! 😬 However, I’ve learned they also restock frequently so if there is a product you really want (like this 🙋🏼), check back daily to see if new sizes have been added! 🔜🛍🛒✔️ Not to mention, I’ve noticed that Nordstrom has majorly stepped up their game in the last year! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
So, between my better understanding of the sale and a round of applause for the Nordstrom buyer, this year I’m swoooooning over WAY too many items. 😍👚👖👢👟👞👗❤️
Here are my TOP PICKS from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – hence the “BIG EDIT.” 🤑 Today is just day 1 and over the course of the next week you can expect posts on Fall Favorites and (my favorite) the Shoe Edit. ✨👟✨
Please continue to check back because I will constantly be updating these posts with in-stock items. Also you can always find alllll my most recent NSale top picks under my “Shop” link in the navigation!!
I haven’t bought a pair of aviators in years, like probably almost 10 haha, but they’ve definitely made a comeback because now it’s allllll I find myself adding to the cart!🤗🕶🛍 Especially right now for summer 🌞 …maybe it’s because more more more of the beach and lakeside moments, all the rosé sipping or that warm California retro vibe I love so much.🙌⛱🌅 But aviators are def making a place for themselves in my top 3 sunglasses choice with every outfit, and they aren’t going anywhere! 😎👍
All the best under $20 (mostly for show, and usually my go-to for colored lenses 🙃 ):
Aviators under $100 (so you don’t break the bank or sacrifice the quality ☺️ ):
Hey big spender ($200-$400 but mannnn will they look 10x good when you put them on 🤑 ):
Heyyylooo summer! 👋🏼☀️ (and no, I’m not talking about the fact you can see my undies in that shot 🙊 #DGAF). What I mean to say is, this tee & mini skirt combo is officially my go-to pairing this season. What’s not to love? I always love a good graphic tee and quite frankly I’m jazzed about the revival of the mini skirt. 🌟🆒🌟 Now I can relive the glory days of middle school and shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch. 🤣🤣
Totally seeing these “slogan tees” trending right now with ’70s motifs, empowering or political statements and romantic attainable French phrases. ❤️ Wear them with high waisted denim or my favorite, the denim mini 👍🏼💯 (tennis court not included). 😛😎
You can shop my outfit at the end of this post or mix & match your favs below! 👇😍👇

Awesome minis (not from Ambercrombie 😜):
(&&&& thanks to my besties, Yummertime, for shooting these glorious pics 👏👏👏📸 )
What’s not to love about the new blast of gingham in the fashion world? 🆕🚀 I especially love styles/trends that I can wear both at home in SF or on vacation in a more romantic forgein atmosphere……enter gingham. 🙌🏼
Perfect for summer afternoons by the beach or backyard barbecues, traveling through Barcelona or the Amalfi Coast, or right at home for an evening with friends in the city.
I see gingham taking on a new wave of existence. Not just the east coast prep that previously I associated the with. This spring/summer gingham has come back in a refreshing, expressive, and even slightly edgy way, and I’m alllll about it.
I’m a majorrrrr lover of all things coconut. Coconut cake, coconut yogurt, coconut candles, coconut donuts, coconut drinks, coconut annnyyyything. 🙌🏼🌴 So when I found Kopari’s whole beauty line was ALL coconut flavored I immediately had to try it out. 💯
Who knew coconut oils had so many health benefits either? Not me! Although, I don’t pay attention to much of that hah… I’m not a huge surveyor of beauty and health products (😳😳) so when I find one, and one that I like, I’ll prob stick with it for years… 👌🏼 or until the bottle runs out.😜😝
I mean how could I not when the oil can be used to tame fly always and fix split ends 💇🏼💆🏼, to moisturize the driest of skin and chapped lips 😙, to remove makeup and prevent aging 🚫👵🏼, and best of all smell, like a tropical dreaaaaam (feeling like I’m in Hawaii is arguably it’s best trait). 🌺☀️🌊
Between the plane flight, the change of air/environment and going in lots of bodies of water, traveling generally dries out my skin. This Coconut Multitasking Kit is the perfect mini moisture set, plus who doesn’t like a little extra sparkle on the beach? ✨😄✨💗
As Kopari says, I am a “coconut virgin”…but soon to be coconut junkie (in the beauty realm of course, we all know I have the consumption realm on lock 😛🍹).
I’m fresh of the plane from a family trip to Barcelona and Ibiza!💃🇪🇸🌞 It was beyond amazing. Just the perfect amount of time to actuallyyyy feel relaxed 😊… and then ripped back into reality, ugh. 😖
So anyway, I hate packing for trips, it takes me AGES and lots of gray hairs… Whyyy?! But I loveeee dressing for vacations!! There is an automatic sense of freedom and wave of happiness that comes with vacation style.☀️🍷🙌 New goal: vacay vibes all day, every day. 💅
I was too busy drinking Aperol Spritz to link up my looks while over there (#sorrynotsorry 😬), so nowwww you can shop all my favorite instagrammed looks from Spain below!
Gingham is hittin’ hard this spring/summer and what better location to try it out on, than the city streets of Barcelona?! None! 🏁👍
The dress I’m wearing is from Reformation (currently waitlisted), so I rounded up a few of my other favorite gingham dresses – all sure to get some heads turning on your next vacay.💃👀 Plus these Forever 21 black satin slides were the perfect shoe pairing, and actually comfortable! Yay for no blisters (f*cking finally). 👏👏👏
The Linen Dress
True life: I have a substantial collection of linen going from all my tropical vacations. The affinity I get from my Dad, who is literally ALWAYS in a linen shirt when he’s not in the office. 💯🕔 The best linen really should only be purchased from linen stores while on vacation (better quality, better price) like this one from Mykonos last year. 🏖🔝 But I did manage to track down a few of these vacation staples online. ✔️
After all, nothing says its time to drink rosé quite like a linen get up. ☀️🍷☀️
The Ruffled Sleeve Maxi
This high heat demanding maxi dress is quite possibly my favorite look from the trip (been saving it for several months just waiting to drop it heheh).🌼 🌸 🌺👗 Actually, I’ve been seeing these ruffle sleeve maxi dresses a lot, and they always seem to pair well with sunshine filled, humid, oceanside environments. 🌊↔️🌇 Whether I’m in LA or Barcelona, Hawaii or the Amalfi Coast this style is surely one I’m going to revisit. 💛💛
A vacay necessity for the ultimate #vacationvibes. This lace caftan works wonders as a beach to lunch cover-up. 🌞👙👘 No shoes necessary! 👣 But before I let my toes fill with sand, they were on the boat in some huarache sandals. 😉
PRO TIP: I’ve also totally rocked it with some short cut western style boots for a boho chic city look. Score for multi-purpose (in which case, this dress slip is V important).
The Wrap Maxi Skirt
I just bought this floral maxi skirt from Reformation a few weeks ago for alllll my upcoming summer travels, because let’s be honest, when would this skirt not work.😝🤷♀️ Pairing a high waisted wrap skirt with just a simple white cami or off-the-shoulder crop is the perfect level of casual chic that I like to go for on vacation.🌼 🌸 🌺 That effortless cool, like you just got off the beach but now are ready for a glamorous dinner. 😉✨☀️💅
