Long summer days, holidays, a cold glass of rosé and salt water…does it get any better? There is something special about the high summer season and the month of July is one of my favorites.
We spent the 4th of July here in Dallas in the pool because it was too warm to do much of anything else! We had a quiet, relaxing weekend spending our days at the pool, playing a little tennis, and hoping into our favorite restaurants (no reservations needed). The city was so quiet for the long weekend and it was kind of nice to stay put.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. One of the best sales of the year and I am pretty sure you’ve all hear about it by now! My motto this year is less is more, so I am going to be very selective on what items I show you and what I think you need from the sale. I love finding the hidden gems and great deals. Last year I bought these mules, these jeans, and a few quality sweaters that I still plan on wearing on repeat this Fall. You can expect daily updates on the ADOD shop page with favorites, steals and pieces to invest in. Also I will be sharing what I am buying from the sale.
A quick weekend trip. Since our travel is heavy on the back half of the summer, we are mostly staying put in Dallas this month. At the end of the month I am headed down to Austin for a quick little mom/daughter trip to visit family. Was thinking about spoiling my mama with a day at the Lake Austin Spa. If you have any other recs, I would love to hear!
New skincare obsession. While I am still using my tried and true Tata Harper, I have been adding in True Botanicals into my routine and I am in love. The cleanser, serums, and face oil are worth every penny.
Making my way back in the kitchen. I have been back in the kitchen the last three weeks and it feels soo good. I’ve been starting out slow with fresh summer salads, pastas and one pan salmon. I am feeling adventurous this week and I am going to try and make this Summer Berry Tart this weekend.
Shopbop 75% off sale. Something worth mentioning this month is this sale. It’s two days only and there are so many good summer items on sale. A few things I’m loving: this summer sweater, this stripe tee, these gold sandals, and and this dress.
