STOCKING UP ON BASICS DURING THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Basics

Happy Friday! Anyone else feeling like the weeks are flying by? Maybe it’s the fact that I turn 30 in a few weeks or that we only have a a couple months left of summer, but I am filling up my weekends with all the plans. This weekend we are headed to brunch with some friends and then I hope to spend most of the time by the pool. For my birthday, I asked for tennis lessons––I was hoping to have my first one this weekend, but my toe still has a little more healing to do before I head out onto the court.  Injuries aside, I picked up this adorable tennis dress for my first lesson.  Next weekend I am heading to my best friends bachelorette party in Cabo. After that we have a packed schedule the rest of the summer until Labor Day.

Under 100 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

SAILING NANTUCKET

Ali Schilling in Nantucket

For the last 4 years, Mackenzie and her amazing family have invited us to stay with them on Nantucket. Last year, Patrick and I went out for the month of July and then I ended up staying the rest of the summer to help Mackenzie with wedding planning. It was one of those summers we will never forget.

One activity that Mackenzie always plans is a sailboat ride on the Endeavor. This year was no exception, so without further adieu let’s cue the picture overload…

Tee / Shorts (borrowed from Mackenzie, loved them so much I got a pair for myself!) / Mules (most worn purchase of the summer) / Cashmere Sweater / Necklace / Sunglasses

WEEKEND DETAILS

We are having a lazy summer weekend around here and I couldn’t be happier. After a busy start to our summer, sometimes it is nice to have a quiet weekend at home. If you didn’t catch my Instagram last week, I mentioned I broke my toe on our last day in Nantucket and I have been currently spending the majority of my time in bed icing my injury––just keeping it real over here. What are you up to this weekend?

A DRESS TO WEAR NOW AND LATER

Rebecca Taylor Dress from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When it comes to shopping, I have been making an effort to be more intentional when it comes to my purchases.  After doing a major closet clean out last year, creating a cohesive closet full of quality pieces has become so important to me.  During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, it is so easy to go overboard (there are so many cute options this year!), so knowing which brands and items to buy is so essential for staying on track.  I purchased 10 items (all at different price points) this year and I felt really good about my decisions!
