Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

We've been holding out on posting this until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale went public and it finally is open for all to shop! They had an early access sale for people with Nordstrom credit cards all last week. There are a TON of amazing items on sale and wow, I did not expect so many things to sell out SO quickly! We can't wait to show you our favorites::

    • This ruffle sleeve cardigan (wah, already sold out in the color I like) caught my eye almost immediately. The soft lilac color is gorgeous and I love how unique the style is. At $55 you can't go wrong. Pair it with an easy tee and you are good to go! Both items have been added to my cart. 
    • These Vince Corbin Sneakers come in a bunch of colors and are perfect for running around everyday. 
    • Love this bell sleeve top- another great everyday piece that also comes in a ton of colors.
    • These moto leggings I could wear everyday with an oversized sweater or sweatshirt and my high top sneakers or slip on sneakers. Definitely purchasing!
  • BEAUTY:: 
    • SKINCARE:: I don't know if it was because I had three babies in three and a half years or if it's just because I'm BUT I've noticed so many changes in my skin and I've decided one of my new goals (along with working out regularly) is to take better care of my skin. Nordstrom has a ton of skincare products on sale and this little La Mer Mini Miracles set has been added to my cart and will hopefully be making it's way to my doorstep in the next few days. It includes the Moisturizing Soft Cream and the Regenerating Serum which diminishes signs of lines and wrinkles. NEED! If you already are a La Mer fan they also have this set which is a $492 value and on sale for $330.
    • MAKEUP:: This Bobbi Brown Palette might just be the best deal out there right now. It's a $365 value for $98. This palette includes 12 eyeshadows in both shimmers and mattes and two blushes and two bronzers. This has also been added to my cart!
    • There are so many great deals when it comes to baby gear. I used this infant carseat for Charlie and LOVED it. It is by far the safest (in my opinion) and easiest one out there. It installs super easily and feels so sturdy. If you need a jogging stroller, this is the one to have. It glides with ease and gives baby a really smooth ride. This is the carseat I use once my babies are out of their infant carseat. It is comfortable and easy to wash and we all LOVE it.

In My Closet

Wow! We haven't done one of these posts in a looooong time. Mostly because whenever I buy something new I try to save it for my styled shoots. I'm actually not due to shoot with my photographer for another month because of our busy schedules so you will be seeing some more "on the fly" posts! Here is a small round up of some new items I've added to my closet. Nothing fancy, just some good everyday kind of things::

I had my eye on this top for a while and once it went on sale (60% off) I decided to buy it. It's the perfect lightweight tank for summer and the tassel trim adds a little something extra to it.

I practically live in easy dresses like this Joie one above during the summer. This one just so happens to be 30% off! It also comes in this pretty color (not on sale). I also love this chambray style which is seriously marked down. Just an easy summer dress!

Like I said, I love an effortless dress for summer. I have to admit, I'm usually not a stripe person but this dress was easy to like. It's super light and soft and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Plus who doesn't love a good shoulder detail??

Do you remember when Cambridge Satchel came out with neon colored bags a few years ago and they were all the rage? Well I had kind of forgotten about them until I stumbled upon this  Cambridge Satchel saddle bag while browsing through Shopbop's sale items and I fell in love with the color. It's currently 40% off and it's the perfect everyday bag.

You probably saw a version of this pic on our Instagram from when I was on Nantucket for the 4th (going back soon!!). This Carmen Marc Valvo one piece suit is one of my favorites: love the one shoulder and love how it's kind of banded (helps to hold you in if you know what I mean ;). And I love wearing a pareo (sarong/beach wrap) with it and this one is now 30% off and comes in three colors. Obsessed with the little pompom details.

And that's a wrap for now!

Skincare :: Top Picks

GLOSSIER :: Rose Water Spray & Super Pure serum // FRESH:: Rose Cleansing Foam // SUNDAY RILEY:: Good Genes (not pictured Ole Henriksen Truth Serum)

 I am a skincare junkie. I love reading up on what's good and bad for your skin but the tricky part about skincare is that everyone's is different and that means going through months or trial and error. I am one hundred percent a big believer that our diet plays a role in our skin - everything from elasticity to breaking out.

I have loved and hated countless moisturizers, serums, toners , cleanser - you name it I've probably tried it. But with that being said I wanted to share some of my staples with you and give a little background on just what they do!
 A more recent addition, probably in the past few weeks I have added Sunday Riley's "Good Genes" to my nighttime routine ( and this mask once a week)! Before the Summer month's I was using their Luna Night Oil which contains retinol and should be stopped well before sun exposure! Good Genes works almost immediately. The appearance of wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation are visibly reduced to show a healthier looking complexion, not to mention a smoother, more radiant one!

Two moisturizers I have come to love are both from Sunday Riley. Both morning and evening I use my Fresh cleanser, followed by the Glossier spray. My morning serums are Glossier's Super Pure, and Ole Henriksen's Truth Serum - always followed by Glossier's SPF or Supergoop if I am not in the office.

After SPF application I put on Sunday Riley's Tidal Water cream and it's literally the lightest most refreshing moisturizer. I feel like my skin is drinking it up! At night i opted for a richer moisturizer - the CEO. It's packed with Vitmain C and has a heavier more whipped texture. After all the free radical exposure from the city and the sun the Vitamin C in this moisturizer help's repair my skin

 I know this may seem like A LOT of morning routine but trust me it's worth it in the long run. I wish I took better care of my skin growing up but it hasn't been until i had a real wake up call discussing my sun damage with my dermatologist. With that being said, after my morning skincare application I then follow with Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer WITH SPF!

 I cannot stress the importance of SPF enough but this tinted moisturizer is one of my favorites with it comes to makeup and skincare. It's not oily, has the perfect amount of tint and its extremely light weight but gets the job done!

Roberta Roller Rabbit

DRESS:: Roberta Roller Rabbit // BAG:: Cult Gaia // SHOES:: Joie // SUNGLASSES:: Ray-Ban

Summer calls for easy pieces you can just throw on and head out the door in. Items you can wear to the beach, running errands around town and out for dinner and drinks. Roberta Roller Rabbit makes some of my favorite easy to wear dresses and tunics perfect for these warmer months (and of course I love the kiddie pajamas, too!). I purchased this dress in the beginning of the summer and it's my favorite dress to wear on days I'm taking the kids to the beach and also have to run errands. I love the pop of color with the coral tassel. There are so many good tunics and beach dresses on sale at Shopbop (love this one), Saks (how cute is the longer caftan style? I have this in a longer sleeve tunic style) and Tuckernuck where you can save an additional 25% sale off with code FINALSALE25. Love the color of this tunic. And check out their kid pjs on sale- so cute!

Friday Favorites :: Slides

 JEANS:: Levi's // SANDALS:: Sam Edelman

Unless you've been living under a rock, you should know by now that the shoe of the Summer is the slide! I remember a few years ago I bought Stuart Weitzman slides and I just wasn't sure I really loved them. Now they and my Sam Edelman's are all I wear!! I just purchased these fringed Mystique's and got them for my sister for her birthday ( surprise not ruined she knows ).

Slides have become a total staple in my life all year round. When the Summer months are over I will transition back into my mules ( loving these featured in the Nordstrom Anny Sale!) but I do have a pair of Summer mules that I can't get enough of. 

Shop my favorite slides below!

Summer Sweater

 TOP:: Cupcakes & Cashmere // JEANS:: J Brand // SHOES:: Club Monaco // CLUTCH:: YSL // HOOPS:: Bronzallure

It's hard to even think about a "sweater" right now during this insane heat we have going on in NY & CT but I do love a good sweater tank in the summer. I bought two last summer from Anthropologie when I was pregnant with Charlie thinking I could for sure wear them again this summer because- hey, they were both non-maternity! I guess I didn't realize how MASSIVE my belly was at the time because I tried those sweater tanks on a few weeks ago and to say I stretched them out would be the understatement of the century. I was quite bummed about it and started searching for a new one I could wear this summer and ended up finding this one by Cupcakes & Cashmere. I had never purchased something by C&C and was a bit hesitant but decided to give it a try because I was obsessed with the lace up detail on the sides. And became even more obsessed when it came and I got to try it on. The quality is really good- the knit is soft and not heavy and it's $105. The best part is, this piece is totally transitional. I plan on pairing it with my leather moto jacket this fall. I also LOVE this one that is under $50 and extra 40% off today!

These shoes. Yes, I know I'm known to say I don't like wearing heels. But I couldn't pass these ones up. The scalloped detail and the soft color won me over. Now, I 100% admit that these are not walking shoes. Maybe a quick walk to and from the car would be ok but that's about it. Unless you are used to walking around in super high heels- these should be just fine!

Summer denim. These jeans have been on repeat since I bought them in June. I love a good light wash and this cropped style is perfect for shorties like me. No hemming!

PS:: Nordstrom kicked off their Anniversary Sale with Early Access for card members. We will be doing a huge round up of all our favorite sale picks so check back!
