Did someone say sale? I’m on it!  The 2018  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening NOW for Nordstrom cardholders (opens to non-cardholders July 20 and ends for good on Aug 5), which means you can score brand-new fall inventory for way less!  It’s Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year!  But when the sale ends, Nordstrom  raises prices back to their normal amounts.   So now is the perfect opportunity to stock up on fall wardrobe essentials!  Let me show you what I bought! read more


Fall Style Must-Haves: Amazon Prime Day 2018

Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 2)

Today’s Thrifty Thursday is all about a shop I have loved since I was a teenager.  (Some things never change!)  And while I am certainly no longer a teenager, I’m still drawn to this retailer’s style!  I’m talking about Hollister, a store that carries quintessential California-vibed clothing!  The pieces are relaxed, fun, and beachy.

Check out my thrifty finds!  All items are on-trend and under $20!


Must-Have Easy T-Shirt (UPDATE: NOW $8.48) I love the way Hollister tees fit! This cut, the Must-Have Easy, is by far my fave. This cute flower print tee also comes in white, and it is perfect for layering under a chunky cardigan in the fall. read more


Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 1)

I’m trying to get a few series going on the blog.  You all enjoy my From Flatlay to Real Way series (I’ve got Vol. 3 coming for ya, I promise!).  And since there are always so many incredible sales that I do not want to miss, I figured I should put them on my blog!  Right now, stores all all about the 4th of July sales.  So welcome to Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 1)!


I’m new to ASOS, and I’m so sad that’s the case.  I wish I had known about them a long time ago!

ASOS is an online retailer than carries the cutest, trendiest items at affordable prices.  Right now, they are having their buy more, save more sale! read more
