Each year when the The Nordstrom Anniversary SaleΒ comes around, one thing is on my mind: shoes. As the seasons are about to turn, it’s a great time to stock up on boots for fall, get your last pair of cute SS17 slides in, and grab a few much needed basics while you’re at it.Β πŸ˜„

Shop my favorite sneakers (slash really favorite shoe because sneakers are all I really wear πŸ‘Ÿ):

Shop the best loafers and flats πŸ‘ž:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: The BIG Edit + Shopping Tips

top-picks-slider

I almost couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it was already Nsale time again! πŸ‘€πŸ˜²Has 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 wasΒ a bit underwhelmed by the sale (especially for all that hype πŸ™„). 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 thisΒ πŸ™‹πŸΌ), check back daily to see if new sizes have been added! πŸ”œπŸ›πŸ›’βœ”οΈ Not to mention, I’ve noticed that Nordstrom has majorly stepped up their game in the last year! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

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. πŸ˜πŸ‘šπŸ‘–πŸ‘’πŸ‘ŸπŸ‘žπŸ‘—β€οΈ

Lot’s of which are from some of my favorite too expensive for me to typically shop at brands like: Rag & Bone, FRAME Denim, Vince, andΒ Levi’s. I’m only the most sad to report, that their sunglasses section is quite small. πŸ˜’

Here are my TOP PICKSΒ fromΒ the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – hence the “BIG EDIT.” πŸ€‘ Today is just day 1Β and over the course of the next week you can expect posts on Fall Favorites and (my favorite) the Shoe Edit. βœ¨πŸ‘Ÿβœ¨

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 myΒ “Shop” link in the navigation!!Β

All the Best Aviators for Summer

aviatorslider2

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!πŸ€—πŸ•ΆπŸ› Β EspeciallyΒ right now for summer 🌞 …maybe it’s because more more more of the beach andΒ lakeside moments, all the rosΓ© sipping or that warm California retro vibe I love so much.πŸ™Œβ›±πŸŒ… Β  But aviators are def making a place for themselves in my top 3 sunglasses choice with every outfit, and they aren’t going anywhere!Β πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

All the best under $20Β (mostly for show, and usually my go-to for colored lenses πŸ™ƒ ):

Aviators under $100 (so you don’t break the bank or sacrifice the quality ☺️ ):

Hey big spenderΒ ($200-$400 but mannnn will they look 10x goodΒ when you put them on πŸ€‘ ):

Retro Tees & Miniskirts

Heyyylooo summer! πŸ‘‹πŸΌβ˜€οΈ (and no, I’m not talking about the fact you can see my undies in that shot πŸ™Š #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. πŸŒŸπŸ†’πŸŒŸ Now I can relive the glory days of middle school and shopping at Abercrombie and Fitch. 🀣🀣

Totally seeing these “slogan tees” trending right now withΒ ’70s motifs, empowering or political statements and romantic attainable French phrases. ❀️ Wear them with high waisted denim or my favorite, the denim miniΒ πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’―Β (tennis court not included). Β πŸ˜›πŸ˜Ž

You can shop my outfit at the end of this post or mix & match your favs below! πŸ‘‡πŸ˜πŸ‘‡

Awesome minis (not from Ambercrombie 😜):

Shop the Gingham Trend

gingham-feat

What’s not to love about the new blast of gingham in the fashion world? πŸ†•πŸš€ 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. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ 

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. 

Tons of brands have hopped on board with the trend: Free People, ASOS, Topshop, Madewell, Anthropologie and the list goes onnnn.

Gingham favorites perfect for your next summer vacation or outing:

Probably my favorite way to wear the print is a gingham romper:

It doesn’t have to be black either! Shop gingham in this summer’s favorite hues:

Coconuts for Kopari

kopari coconut oil

I’m a majorrrrr lover of all things coconut. Coconut cake, coconut yogurt, coconut candles, coconut donuts, coconut drinks, coconut annnyyyything. πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŒ΄ So when I found Kopari’s whole beauty line was ALL coconut flavored I immediately had to try it out. πŸ’―

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… πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ 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 πŸ’‡πŸΌπŸ’†πŸΌ, to moisturize the driest of skin and chapped lips πŸ˜™, to remove makeup and prevent aging πŸš«πŸ‘΅πŸΌ, and best of all smell, like a tropical dreaaaaam (feeling like I’m in Hawaii is arguably it’s best trait). πŸŒΊβ˜€οΈπŸŒŠ

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? βœ¨πŸ˜„βœ¨πŸ’—

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 πŸ˜›πŸΉ).

Shop my favorite Kopari products:

⚠️ Warning: Mess may occur! If you’re bringing these out into the sun they can melt and cause a bit of an oily mess. Best kept at room temp. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Shop My Instagram Looks: Barcelona –> Ibiza

instalook-feature

I’m fresh of the plane from a family trip to Barcelona and Ibiza!πŸ’ƒπŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΈπŸŒž It was beyond amazing. Just the perfect amount of time to actuallyyyy feel relaxed 😊… and then ripped back into reality, ugh. πŸ˜–

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.β˜€οΈπŸ·πŸ™Œ Β New goal: vacay vibes all day, every day.Β πŸ’…

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

Gingham is hittin’ hard this spring/summer and what better location to try it out on, than the city streets of Barcelona?! None! πŸπŸ‘

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.πŸ’ƒπŸ‘€ Plus these Forever 21 black satin slides were the perfect shoe pairing, and actually comfortable! Yay for no blisters (f*cking finally).Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

The Linen Dress

True life:Β 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. πŸ’―πŸ•” Β 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. πŸ–πŸ” But I did manage to track down a few of these vacation staples online.Β βœ”οΈ

After all, nothing says its time to drink rosΓ© quite like a linen get up. β˜€οΈπŸ·β˜€οΈ

The Ruffled Sleeve Maxi

This high heat demanding maxi dress is quite possibly my favorite look from the tripΒ (been saving it for several months just waiting to drop it heheh).🌼 🌸 πŸŒΊπŸ‘— Β 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. πŸŒŠβ†”οΈπŸŒ‡ Β Whether I’m in LA or Barcelona, Hawaii or the Amalfi Coast this style is surely one I’m going to revisit. πŸ’›πŸ’›

Caftan Coverup

A vacay necessity for the ultimate #vacationvibes. This lace caftan works wondersΒ as a beach to lunch cover-up. πŸŒžπŸ‘™πŸ‘˜ No shoes necessary!Β πŸ‘£ But before I let my toes fill withΒ sand, they were on the boat inΒ some huarache sandals.Β πŸ˜‰

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,Β this dress slipΒ 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 notΒ work.πŸ˜πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Pairing a high waisted wrapΒ 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.🌼 🌸 🌺 Β That effortless cool, like you just got off the beach but now are ready for a glamorous dinner.Β πŸ˜‰βœ¨β˜€οΈπŸ’…
