This week has been filled with lots of high highs and a few lows and for all of you that need it this week, I am sending you a little extra love.

This week I tried Tracy Anderson with Amy and Mackenzie (I am still sore 3 days later!), watched the election results with friends, spent time with my mother-in law, and tried a new restaurant in town that may be a new favorite. This weekend we will be running lots of errands to get ready for our first trip to the mountains next week (even if there is no snow yet), finishing my gift guide and shooting a few special holiday projects. This is the first week the weather has been under 80 in Dallas, so I might even try to convince Patrick to make a fire. :)

Oh Friday, I love you.

After what have been a few crazy weeks around here, I am excited to have a relaxing weekend to recharge and reset. Somehow we are halfway through October (how did this happen) and the holidays are right around the corner.  This week I sat down to brainstorm some new content for A Dash of Details and we have some really exciting things in the works.  Quick question for all of you: Is there anything specific you would like to see on the site? What kind of content is your favorite? I would love to hear from you!

Black Ruffled Top

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that- that is what life is.  You might be really good. You might find something about yourself that’s really special and if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”- Amy Poheler

This week has been filled with lots of highs and lows. It has been a week that taught me something about myself.  A week that made me realize I am stronger than I thought I was last week. Life has a funny way of throwing you curve balls, but I’ve realized embracing them is what make you a better person. I think without the lows, the highs wouldn’t feel as good. This week, the highs were incredible! I met Mark D. Sikes, Reese Witherspoon and spent my days catching up with “my people”. It was seriously one of those weeks where I will look back and think, did this really happen?

Labor Day Sailing in Nantucket

Happy Labor Day weekend! I am keeping this short and sweet this morning because we are headed out to the ranch outside of Austin for a little R&R and family fun. I plan to do a ton of online shopping because there are so many good sales going on until Monday! See the complete list below:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s hard to think about Fall, sweaters and booties when it is 100 degrees outside, but it is totally worth it when your season staples are marked WAY down.  The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and after spending some time browsing the site and filling my shopping cart full (so long paycheck), I have narrowed down my list to a few categories.

J.McLaughlin Clutch and Amo Denim

“Like wallflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all places people thought you never would.”- e.v.

Every year during the end of July I start reflecting on how much has changed, but also how much has stayed the same.  It is three weeks before my 28th birthday and I, for some reason, have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that I am actually in my late 20s.

July Details

July has turned into the month of sales and I am a-okay with that! All of the summer essentials are making their way into my closet thanks to the major markdowns.

First, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts this weekend (for cardholders!) and I am pretty excited about stocking up on some must-have fall trends.  I have been scoping the catalogue and there are some great pieces from Joie, Veronica Beard and Vince.

Shopbop is having a crazy good sale right now and I am scooping up this bag and this dress for my upcoming trip to Nantucket.

It’s also Amazon Prime Day.  From Fashion to beauty, everything is on sale! I am stocking up on my favorites from Splendid and lusting over a new bike.

J.Crew is having an additional 50% off.  These sandals and this striped tee are no brainers.

I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite festive outfits and some great holiday sales!
