ARE YOU DRINKING ENOUGH WATER?

Levi Jeans and White Zara Top

When life brings you lemons, make lemon water..that’s the saying right? All jokes aside, I have been drinking warm lemon water every morning when I wake up and I found it is one of the best ways to start my day.  Not only is it beneficial for your health, but I love feeling of starting the day hydrated.  I have been trying to drink about 80 ounces of water a day and my little morning routine has been a great jumpstart to reaching my daily goal.

**Side Note: I got so many questions about this little tote on my Instagram yesterday. I stole mine from Amy who found it at Whole Foods last year, but now they sell them at Anthropologie. So what I am saying is I guess my grocery bag was cooler than I thought ;)

A LITTLE NAVY NUMBER

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? We had a great couple of days trying to stay out of the triple digit heat in Dallas. We spent lots of time watching Netflix. What are some of your favorite shows? We just finished The Sinner and we need a new series to start! On Saturday, my sweet friend Saragh planned a brunch to kick off my birthday month––I can’t believe I am going to be 30 in eight days! Our brunch turned into late afternoon margaritas and dinner at Dolce Riviera. Days like this make my heart so happy.

I’m not going to lie that I am going a little stir crazy as I let my toe heal. It’s funny how you don’t realize how active you are on a daily basis until you can’t do the simple things, like walk the dogs. Hopefully, I will be back to 100% soon.

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.

SWEET, SWEET SUMMERTIME

Oh, sweet summertime. I wish you would last forever.

There is nothing love more than building out my summer wardrobe. So, before heading to Nantucket I was introduced to a darling retailer, Halsbrook and to say I was obsessed would be an understatement. I ended up stocking up on so many classic pieces from some of my favorite brands.

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!

TOP 10 PIECES TO BUY EARLY DURING THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

While I am not ready for summer to end just yet, the sale of the year is here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today (for card holders only––the public can start shopping on July 20th). I headed into the store yesterday for a sneak peek at the entire sale. Y’all it is goood this year. The list is extensive, but if you are anything like me, I love an excuse for a great deal on something I would be purchasing for the season anyways.

If you are not familiar with the sale, here’s the scoop: Nordstrom selects all new arrivals for the upcoming season and discounts them for a limited amount of time.  With over 100 pages of product, the sale can get super overwhelming to browse. In order to stay on track, I have created a shopping strategy so I end up buying things I really love and/or need.

1. VINCE CARDIGAN / 2. TATA HARPER SKINCARE SET / 3. VINCE MULES / 4. REBECCA TAYLOR DRESS / 5. J.CREW PJ’s / 6. NECKLACE / 7. COAT (under $200!) / 8. DERMAFLASH 2.0 / 9. DENIM / 10. HANKY PANKY

SUMMER STRIPED SWEATER

If there is one thing that I was missing last summer on Nantucket, it was some casual summer sweaters. I brought my trusty Tippi’s with me, but I was lacking different styles and weights for cooler nights.  This year I came prepared and packed this striped one––which ended up being my most worn item, this Flag sweater and a navy and ivory cable knit cashmere for throwing over my shoulders.
