Has anyone else felt like life is throwing them one curveball after another? Lately it feels like every time I turn around something is not working or is broken. My phone, internet, car, and work laptop all have had issues in the last week and I am just ready for all of my technology to work! Not to mention we STILL have an unidentifiable critter living in our walls AND one of our puppies wasn’t feeling good this past weekend.

Color crush: olive, I love you

fall color trend olive green

 

My fall color crush is most definitely olive green! It is such a pretty color for the fall months! It pairs well with so many different colors – especially taupes and blushes! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite olive pieces for you!

1 // Gap t-shirt dress: I love the 3-quarter length sleeve on this one and the length is perfect! I have an olive green swing dress that I layer with cozy cardis and plaid scarves in the fall.

2 // H&M oversized sweater: You really can never have enough oversized sweaters in your closet. This deep-v one is great for layering and is long enough to be worn with leggings. This one also comes in grey and pink (under $35!)

3 // Free People high rise skinnies: I love the destroyed look of these skinnies! There are only a few sizes left, but they’re on sale for under $50!

4 // H&M cropped sweater: I love the high neck and drawstring detail on this one!

5 // Camo scarf: I love the pops of pink in this one!

6 // Boohoo suede mini: This one may not exactly be olive but this color goes great with it! Comes in 2 other colors.

7 // Express camo skinnies: There are so many ways to make camo look chic! I love the colors in this pair. So pretty to wear with neutrals.

8 // Joe Fresh drape front cardigan: For years I avoided drape front cardigans but now I can’t get enough of them. I love this shade of olive and the way it drapes beautifully! It also comes in a few other colors.

9 // BP oversized sunnies: You guys know my obsession with a good pair of oversized sunnies. This shape is so fun and they’re only $14!

10 // Charlotte Russe velvet booties: I really love booties that have the slits on the sides because they are so comfortable. These velvets ones are on trend and a beautiful color to pair with olive!

 

Now if only the temperatures would reflect how my closet currently feels so I can break out all the sweaters! Do you have a color crush this fall?

The day is finally here! Everyone can now shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I rounded up some of my initial favorite picks when the sale launched last week in this post. Most of these items sold out several times but are back in stock today. I’ve gotta be honest… I just haven’t been too impressed with most of the items I have ordered and received so far. BUT I will say that some great beauty deals are a part of the sale this year. I own and love some of these items and could not recommend them enough!

First off, if you get any beauty product from the sale, I highly recommend the Smashbox Duo. You save $20 with this Nordstrom exclusive! If I hadn’t just stocked up I would have taken advantage for sure. I recently discovered this par fum and I am OBSESSED! I have gotten so many compliments on this one so I may have found my scent 🙂

Speaking of great scents, every Christmas Zack’s Nannie gives us 3 HUGE bottles of this shampoo/body wash combo and we both love them! I really want to smell the Orange Pineapple one, but some of our past favorites are Senorita Margarita, Fresh Cream, and Pink Frosted Animal Cracker (OK that one was my fave…not Zack’s LOL).

There are a few items that I’ve had on my wish list for quite a while. Tempted to grab the ORIBE Gold Lust set and the OAUI hair kit because I have heard amazing things! If you’ve had your eye on some things, this is the time to pull the trigger.

This weekend we are hopefully going to relax and see some of our best friends that we haven’t seen since we moved! What are your plans besides shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

Alright ladies, it’s game time! Early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here and all I have to say is IT IS GOOD. Like so good. First things first, to shop today through next Thursday you will need to be a Nordstrom debit or credit card holder. The good stuff sells out quickly so I recommend snatching them up ASAP. Buy what you love and regret nothing because FREE RETURNS.

I was up bright and early this morning combing through pages and pages of sale items picking out my favorites goodies in beauty, shoes, fall staples, and more! I have linked the items I know you need in your closet this fall ( a lot of these found their way to my cart…oops 🙂 ). I am so happy to report that pretty blushes and blue are trending for fall! Both of the camel and leopard versions of these mules found their way into my cart as well as this staple cami. If you had to choose one thing from the sale this year, this cardigan should be it! I couldn’t choose between this cardigan and this cardigan so I decided on both. I cannot wait to show you all my goodies when they arrive!

Check back throughout the sale (prices go back up on August 7) to see my favorite budget buys, work wear pieces, and beauty picks.

And now, for the best part – the sale items!
