Hey ladies! With the big Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening this week I really wanted to give you some of the trends you will see this fall season.  You will see most of these styles at the Nordy Sale and I thought it would be important to bring them to your attention.  I feel like most of these trends will mix nicely with some of the current things in our closet.  I actually love most of the trends for this fall season and can’t wait to shop! I know the sale is really good for those basic things that you can get at a great price. I also feel that there are some great deals on the trendy items for the season that will stick around…

Hey there! Happy July! It is THAT time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up! I am so glad I have something to look forward to in July.  Having an extensive retail background, July was always a dreadful month for me.  It was a time that everything for spring and summer was on sale and fall inventory was coming in.  The problem was and is that no one wants fall items because it’s 100 plus degrees outside!  I should also mention that sale time in July brings a totally different customer than you are use to the rest of the year.  All this made me look forward to July being over. Now it is a different story.  From a retail business…

Hey there! Have you ever shopped for something for so long and just when you are about to give up you find it? Your aggravation turned into excitement instantly!  That was me with trying to find a maxi dress that fit into my casual lifestyle.  I wanted a maxi dress that was cotton, casual, comfortable and had a really cute fit.  I should also mention that my hunt lasted a year!  I found a dress last year at J Crew that I wanted so badly and it sold out before I ever saw it.  Lo and behold the same dress came back in stock this year and was 40% off! I immediately purchased it online and it was soooo perfect! I recently took a trip…

Hey ladies! I hope you are getting as excited as I am for spring to get here! I don’t get as excited about spring clothing as I do for the fall season but I certainly am ready for warmer weather and sandals! I want to help you find the essentials you will need for a great spring wardrobe. These essentials are just basics that are the “canvas” for your wardrobe. Think of it like a painting.  You start with a canvas and build on it to make your picture from there.  You can not build the picture without the canvas.  Similarly you can not build a functional wardrobe without the basic “canvas” pieces. For your essentials I am going to give you suggestions to create…

This is when I try to do things that I don’t have time for once spring rolls around.  One important thing I try to do is go through my closet. I have made it a tradition for the past two years to bring you my closet cleaning post in January.  Just seemed fitting to keep that tradition alive so here ya go!  Check out all the details on How to Get Your Closet Ready for Spring. 1. Contemplate Each Spring Item First, you will need to evaluate each piece for the spring season.  This is very important to do before any spring shopping so you will not make any unneeded purchases. If your spring clothing is packed away then this is the perfect time to…

Hey ladies! This one is for you! I have a recommendation that will make a major difference in your life! I think we all struggle with finding the right bra in the right size. They are not a one size fits all purchase.  I thought going into Dillard’s to have their experts measure me and make recommendations would make a difference. Well, I did that and still had lots of bras that ended up not fitting me perfectly.  The bra expert is not at fault; they can only recommend what is available to them! So frustrating! I hope you will keep reading and see why Thirdlove is now my new love! ThirdLove ThirdLove reached out to me on Instagram and gave me the chance to…

Hey there! I hope you had a great weekend! Last week was a fun week for me and I actually got lots of content finished! Whoo hooo! That makes me so happy you just do not even know! During this much needed photo shoot I took the opportunity to try out my new perfect and petite travel bags by Ellis James Designs. The ones I am reviewing are more petite and very different from the other larger bags I have written about.  The really exciting part is one of them is a travel jewelry organizer.  For short trips or things like a photo shoot these bags are so perfect. The Jewelry Organizer Case Let’s start with the jewelry organizer because it was such a big…
