Best Versatile Basics to Buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is of course a great time to get brand new merchandise at a sale price, but it's also one of my FAVORITE sales to get some new, versatile, basic pieces from - the ones you'll wear a ton, get a lot of use out of and even some that you'll have for a long time.
Public Access is finally opened! So if you've been waiting to shop, your time is almost here. ;) Whether you're looking for a new classic coat or a few new basic tees, I got you covered ladies. Happy shopping!

The Best of Amazon Prime Day 2019


Happy Prime Day! Another amazing sale kicks off today and these Prime deals are seriously too good to pass up. There's thousands of Amazon items on sale today and there's constantly new deals being added! Best part is, Prime Day is TWO days long this year. I'll be updating this post with all of the very best deals I come across, so make sure to check back often! It is a bit overwhelming to go through the thousands of pages worth of deals so I went through and highlighted the ones I think are the best and things you can NOT miss!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Best Early Access Finds & Things That Will Sell Quickly!


Christmas in July is here! If you're a fan of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, you're no doubt loving today! It's such a great sale and this year is one of the better ones product wise in my opinion. I've been searching high and low for the very best finds for the past week and as I always do when this sale starts, am sharing the top picks and also the things that I think are going to sell out quickly. That's not to say they won't come back into stock, but if you've shopped the sale before, you know that there are items that sell out within minutes of the sale going live!

The best part about Nordstrom is their free shipping/free return policies - even if you plan to shop in-store, if there's anything you know you want to get your hands on, I highly recommend ordering it as soon as the sale goes live so that you don't risk not finding it in-store or it selling out online! I end up making at least a few orders with things I hadn't seen in-store, or items in a couple of sizes, and just return what I don't want. There's nothing better than trying things on in the comfort of your own home in front of your own mirror!

Casual, Cute & Patriotic 4th of July Outfit Inspiration


You know it's really, officially summer in-full-swing when we're shopping for the 4th of July! I love shopping for summer clothes and even more for red, white and blue EVERYTHING. There's literally nothing better than celebrating America on a hot, sunny day, by the pool or at the beach or a BBQ. I rounded up some of the cutest patriotic themed pieces I could find for you to shop - and the best part is, these all will be SO cute to rock all summer long, not just on the 4th. Happy shopping!

Sephora Beauty Insider Spring Event: What's Worth (re)Buying + What I'm Trying


One of the very best sales of the year is here! If you're a Rouge member, you've been able to shop since last week and if you're a VIB or Beauty Insider the sale has officially opened to you too! I placed an order with some new things I wanted to try last week so that I could share them in this post and I'm excited about a lot of them so far. I've been out of so many things I regularly use for quite a few weeks now and have been anxiously waiting for this sale to start to re-purchase them - this sale is that good!

A Pretty Floral Spring Tablescape


Decorating and getting ready for a holiday or party during the spring is just so much more fun than any other time of year! I have a somewhat newly found love for putting together tablescapes (my Christmas themed table this past year was my first!) and have been planning my first spring table for a few months and am so excited with how it turned out! Use it for Easter Sunday or a spring party - from a casual dinner to a shower and so much more. I knew I wanted something pastel and springy but also wanted it to be simple enough to re-create and also something that I could put together easily over and over again this season.

Believe it or not, my inspiration for the entire table began with the napkins I used. Seems silly but when you see these napkins you'll get it. ;) I hope this gives you some ideas if you're looking for a simple but beautiful table setup this season! Everything is affordable and easy to put together and most importantly, COLORFUL!
