summer date night ideas

One of my favorite things about summer is that I don't need to wear a jacket when I go on a date! I know this sounds silly, but seriously, I am always cold. Over the years I have found that despite how many times I wear jeans and the perfect tank top I'm always cold. And having to match a jacket with my look doesn't always work.  However; I have found the perfect solution. After some reflecting on past date night outfits, I found that despite what I was wearing, it is always my chest and my arms that were cold. So instead of my staple jeans & a cute top, this summer, I opted for long sleeves and denim shorts. 

The result: an easy, practical, and chic summer date night look

Wedding Etiquette 101: Featuring Bridal Showers

I’m excited to try today’s post because it was highly requested and something I usually don’t do. Today I’m sharing not only the do’s but also the do not’s of wedding etiquette!

B & I are finally in the stages of our wedding planning where we just registered (so much fun!) & have our wedding showers to look forward too- yes I said showers. I’m THAT girl who is having two showers but actually it’s so practical how could we not? Our families don’t live in the same state, so to make travel easier on everyone we are traveling. Although not what I had originally thought, I’ve learned through-out the whole planning process it is okay not to follow the rules.

In today's edition of Wedding Wednesday, I’m sharing some of my quick & easy tips on bridal shower etiquette.

How to Style Leopard - Wearing your #nsale purchases now!

One of the most frustrating things about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, besides the fact that everything sells out, is that I can't wear the products right away. Who wants to buy a bunch of clothing items you can't wear for a few months? Not I, especially when I specifically stick to a clothing/shopping budget. However; my task this year was to buy staple pieces I know I would wear a lot. If I was on the fence about an item- I sent it back. If it didn't immediately transfer into an outfit using pieces I already own- it went back. You get the picture, right? 

So today's post is all about how I am & will style some of my favorite #nsale purchases, like this leopard scarf:

now & later!

Shopping the Nordstrom Sale Part 2

Jump for joy y'all because... 
the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open for everyone to shop!

In today's post, I'm talking all about everyone's favorite cardi: the Leith open- front cardigan. Words do not do justice to how soft this sweater is. It feels like pajama material but will be the perfect sweater for fall. Wear it now with shorts and a basic tee (pictured) on cooler summer nights. Then, during the fall, I plan to pair it with jeans, skirts, dresses, and more. Originally $75.00 on sale for: $49.90 do NOT wait to purchase this cardigan because it will sell out again. I will be purchasing the pink color today, since I missed it during early access.   
This is the cardigan that will be on repeat throughout the fall and you don't want to miss out.

Tips for Living a Healthy Lifestyle; Workout Wednesday Edition

Confession time:  I work out for the cute athletic clothes and water bottles. 

True statement, though. Working out is totally a mental thing. For starters you need to mentally prepare and motivate yourself to actually prioritize working out, especially in today's world where there are so many other things competing for our attention and time.  

For example, it's such a bad habit to sit down after work- I'm serious. Sitting down on the couch is one of the worst behavioral habits, because it tells the body to "wind-down" Then, it becomes an even bigger struggle to motivate one's self to work out. Since we are all guilty of our "lazy" moments; today, I am sharing my top tips for how I live a healthy life-style, including what activewear I purchase!
