Happy Friday friends! It’s going to be a good one because it’s Memorial weekend!! I am heading out to NYC early tomorrow morning (it’s a kid-free trip!) so make sure you are following along on Instagram. That sounds so bad to get excited about being kid-free, but you know what I mean. 😉
There are a few spring/summer trends that I’m especially loving and I’m partnering with Nordstrom on the blog today to share some of my very favorites! Nordstrom is my number one go-to when it comes to shopping. There is a Nordstrom a few miles from my house, and sometimes when I only have 15-20 minutes after my work-out before I need to pick up Max from school I will sneak over there for a coffee and a quick walk through. I also do a lot of my Nordstrom shopping online with in-store pick-up. It is so convenient when I have Max because I can literally be in and out in 5 minutes. We don’t mess around haha!
I am especially loving today’s post! One of my favorite color combinations of the moment is yellow with a pop of red. I saw it in an ad somewhere and knew I had to try it our for myself. I’m wearing some of my favorite warm-weather trends in this outfit.
- Anything Yellow
- Statement Earrings
- Feminine Detailing (lace)
- White Handbags (bonus points for the Chloé Nile)
This romper is so gorgeous… it is sure to be a show-stopper! It comes in 6 other colors my second favorite being the pale blue. A romper is a fun alternative to wearing a dress for a night out. I swear anytime I wear a romper out, I get more compliments rather than if I was wearing a dress. A note on sizing- I feel like the romper runs true to size. I am wearing a medium, and a small would have been better. I usually size up in rompers because I am 5’9″ with a chest. There’s nothing like wearing a romper and having a wedgie all day. But anyway, if you plan on ordering I say order your normal size. I also spotted this yellow romper which is more causal for daytime and under $50!
I’m also in love with these red tassel earrings. I shot several outfits that day and didn’t end up taking them off because somehow they worked with everything. Even outfits I would never have even thought. And I just recently purchased these nude sandals which are under $100 and a great summer basic. They are surprisingly comfortable and the shade is just perfect. Order your normal size as they run true to size.
Ending this post with a word about the Chloe Nile. It is THE BAG of the season. It is extremely hard to get your hands on one, which is how I know it is so hot. And it might be why people are going crazy for it. That whole wanting what you can’t have! I see one pop up on the Nordstrom website every now and then so if you want one I would check on a daily basis because that’s what I did. I went for the small size- it comes in a small and medium. Keep in mind that the small size doesn’t fit the larger iPhone, but the bigger size is better for daytime. I love how versatile the bag is in that you can wear as a cross-body or use the gold bracelet to wear on your wrist.
My husband and I got in a conversation last night starting with- who can afford these bags? Maybe you are thinking the same thing? For me, I LOVE a handbag over even jewelry and I treat these handbags like gold. They hold their value and are a good investment for me. When I was in my 20’s, I would only dream about such a bag, but now that I’m in my 30’s it’s a little more within reach. So if you are a twenty-something keep in mind I would much rather be young + hot than have a designer bag. Ha!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a terrific Memorial weekend!! xx
