The Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is back again and I feel like it just left! If you are not aware, Nordstrom’s runs anniversary sale each year featuring select Fall & Winter items at a reduced price. For those of you who like to shop ahead of the season, this is the perfect sale for you. If you are like myself and its too hot to think of boots and coats, then you probably will pass and wait until it gets cold enough lol.

I typically don’t shop the sale or give it too much thought because every blogger and their mama is talking about “what you NEED” from the sale. Its honestly quite annoying and I find myself rolling my eyes at every cardigan and bootie that is being put in my line of sight.

When I shop the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, I like to pick up one or two pieces that I feel is unique and something I can wear even during the summer months. At least then I can wear it now instead of waiting until November when it gets cold here in Dallas.

Anyhoo, I did a poll on my Instagram (are you following me there, you should) to see if you guys wanted a roundup of my Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale picks and over 80% said YES! So here we are! I decided to do an under $150 round up to keep it more on the affordable side and make it less overwhelming to shop. I think my picks are pretty versatile, unique and to the point! What do you think?

When Can You Shop The Sale?

Will you be shopping the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale? If you have a Nordies card, you have access to shop the sale NOW thru July 18th! If not, the sale is open to the public on July 19th!!

When I came across Texican Court hotel right here in the Dallas area on Instagram, I immediately fell in love with its retro vibes and stunning decor! As an influencer or blogger, aesthetics are everything when it comes to making a look stand out. I often scour Instagram or the web for a fabulous location to shoot, that will not only inspire my outfit looks, but inspire and intrigue my audience as well.

Texican Court, a Valencia Hotel, is a boutique hotel located in Irving, Texas which is not far from Downtown Dallas. It offers a vintage, motor court hotel vibe with bright pink doors and three courtyards throughout to enjoy. There is a courtyard featuring fire pits, swimming pools and outdoor restaurant patio! Its truly a unique gem and an Instagrammer’s dream for pictures. There’s so many wonderful areas to take pictures throughout the hotel. It was perfect for my “Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas” series that I created for you guys in my last few posts!

Not only is the exterior stunning, but the interior hotel rooms are beautifully decorated as well. The retro vibe decor with splashes of modern touches are carried throughout the rooms as well. I mean, did you see the orange SMEG refridgerator stocked as a mini bar? How about the most adorable wardrobe to hang all of your gorgeous outfits to wear during your stay? Texican Court is certainly a hotel you should visit, rather you book a stay or enjoy dinner at “Two Mules Cantina” with live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Also, check out their “Tequila Bar” for tequila tastings or a good cocktail. Its certainly worth checking out!

Well, my loves this finally completes my “Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas” series on the blog. Have you checked out my posts from this series? Here is Part One, Two, Three , Four and Five. Stay tuned for my next series on “Summer Wardrobe Essentials” coming soon!

A special and sincere thanks to Texican Court Hotel in Irving, Texas and the Valencia Hotel Group for allowing me to shoot at their amazing location. Its been a true pleasure!

Palm Print Floral Mini Dress for under $30

Forever 21 Shell Clutch Bag

Zara Vinyl Heeled Mules also these orange vinyl heels

Forever 21 Orange Marble Drop Earrings

NYX Powder Kiss Lippie in “Crushing Hard”

Hey Loves!

Aren’t you in love with this palm print floral dress? Its absolutely a must have vacation dress. Its lightweight, flirty and would pack just fine in your suitcase. This is a fun dress to wear casually for daytime activities with cute slides or wedges. Its also a great piece for dinner or cocktail hour with strappy heels or these Zara vinyl heeled mules like I am wearing too. Don’t you agree?

I first saw this dress on a fellow blogger on Instagram and I couldn’t believe where she got it. Yes, its another Amazon find you guys! This beautiful palm print floral dress is under $30! Its so budget friendly, flirty and a great summer vacation dress. I’m definitely filing this look under my “Vacation Summer Outfit Ideas” series for sure. It certainly suits the bill and I strongly suggest this find.

Things to know before you order..

A few things to note about this dress. 1) I ordered a medium because I wanted more length. So it is still a little roomy on me but I’m okay with it because I love the length on me versus a more mini dress look. 2) The straps are self tie, which is great because you can adjust it yourself and tie it how you like. 3) This dress does have a deep v in the back. I know the pictures doesn’t really show that detail. So certainly wear petals or a strapless, backless bra underneath. I linked the one I am wearing and a few more that has good reviews also. I hope that helps.

I know the palm print trend can sometimes be overdone. But, this palm print floral dress is very cute and fun to wear. I already worn it for date night and felt so comfortable and pretty in this dress. Who knew Amazon has all of these amazing, affordable finds? And if you have prime, receive your order in two days? How are people living their lives without Amazon amazes me lol.

Have you been following my “Vacation Summer Outfit Ideas” series? I hope so! Its coming to a close as I have one more look left. I hope you were able to shop some great finds and enjoy them wherever the open road takes you! Check out Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 of my series and let me know what you think!

Hey Loves!

Summer is here and wedding season is upon us. If you’ve been invited to an upcoming wedding, I’m sure you’ve wondered “what will I wear?” Wedding guest dresses can usually be a hard find dependent upon if its day or evening, location, and if its formal or informal wedding. It usually requires some thought and planning, so I rounded up a few wedding guest dresses for you on the blog today!

I also thought this was a great add to my ” Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas” series as most travel to attend weddings also. So I found it fitting to include some wedding guest dresses in this series. Of course, these dresses can certainly be worn to any special event or a nice dinner on vacation. I think its important that when you shop for a dress specifically for an event, keep in mind other ways and places to wear it so that you get more mileage or wear out of your purchase.

My dress is a stunning floral cut out satin maxi dress I scored for only $41 on ASOS!! You guys, this dress is gorgeous! Its one of those things that look even better in person. The material, fit and just style of this dress certainly gave me wedding guest dress vibes. Unfortunately, its no longer available. I’ve been hunting ASOS site to see if they restocked and it has not. But, I linked quite a few dupes I think you will still love!!

With a great dress you need great accessories. Shoes, jewelry and handbags must complete the look! So I rounded up tons of options for you to check out also. Of course, these are also great pieces you can work into your summer or vacation wardrobe on a night out or other events too!

Most of the earrings I found are from Amazon. Did you know that Amazon has some amazing dupes of designer earrings?? If you check out the carousel, you’ll see a few styles that look exactly the same as you would find in the department stores. Don’t sleep on Amazon my friends! I’ve scored so many great fashion pieces that arrived at my door in two days… because PRIME is everything! So certainly check them out!

Be sure to read Part 1,2 & 3 of my Vacation Outfit Idea posts!

I hope you have read my other posts from my vacation outfit idea series. You can find part one, part two and part three all linked for you here! From great swimwear options to day time looks, I think I have it all covered for you!

Also, I value your option. So please let me know if there is anything else you would like to see on the blog! I would love your feedback!

Special thanks to Texican Court, a Valencia Hotel for allowing me to shoot at their amazing hotel in Irving, Texas!!

Outfit Details

Geo Print Kaftan Swim Cover Up

White Cut Out Swimsuit (old, perfect dupe HERE & similar HERE and Love This One!

Forever 21 Orange Suede Wedge almost sold out, Love This Pair)

Urban Expressions Clear Bag in Mint (no longer avail in mint, only in White, Love this version too!

Mint Lucite Drop Earring (old, similar HERE and HERE)

Bobbi Brown Nude Sunglasses (old, love this pair)

Rose Gold Pineapple Copper Tumbler with Straw

Affordable Swimsuit Cover Up for Only $20?!

So lets talk about this affordable swimsuit cover up for only $20! Its another amazing Amazon find and when I tell you I am obsessed with it, there are no lies told, ok! It reminds me of a Trina Turk or Mara Hoffman collection vibe with the vibrant print and pattern. When I got it in the mail, I was so pleased with it. I also found a few other affordable swimsuit cover ups in gorgeous prints for $20 bucks too! So be sure to check the carousel above for more great affordable swimsuit cover up options.

Another thing I like about this affordable swimsuit cover up is the length. You can wear this around the hotel, beach side restaurant, resort or even the grocery store and still feel presentable around whomever. I can’t wait to wear this cover up again really soon. Its such a good piece, don’t miss out on this one ladies.

Chic One Piece Cut-Out Swimsuit!

I purchased this ASOS cutout swimsuit about two years ago. I absolutely love it. One piece swimsuits are my jam as I am not too comfy revealing this belly I’ve acquired from eating too many carbs and Starbucks frappucinos lol. Anyways, I was able to find an exact dupe of this swimsuit for only $35!! I am strongly debating getting the olive green color myself!

How To Accessorize Swimwear:

Shoes: We cannot forget the shoes, am I right? Sure, you’ll most likely wear flip flops or pool slides to the beach. But, I just had to rock these stunning shoes. I scored these orange faux suede lace up wedges at Forever 21 folks. Let me tell you, Forever 21 is where its at for some great summer sandals. I almost returned these babies because I am trying to do better about my shoe addiction. But, a magic moment occurred when I realized how fabulous the shoes would go with this swimsuit cover up for this look. If these wedges are still in stock by the time I post this, you better get them ASAP. They are already selling out fast!

Chic Nude Tone Sunglasses!

Sunglasses are most certainly a summer necessity. My sunnies are old Bobbi Brown (not the singer, but Bobbi Brown Cosmetics) that I scored at Nordstrom Rack two years ago. I was looking for a pair of nude sunglasses, but couldn’t find any that popped against my skin tone until I came across these. I am sad that I can’t find these online for you guys, but I’ve linked a few dupes that may work. They are one of my favorite pairs of sunglasses as they are so chic, looks really good on and comfortable to wear.

Find fun accessories that stands out!

Fun accessories always elevate any look if you ask me. For this series, I tried to go for a more editorial, magazine type vibe in my outfit selections and location. So I chose fun & unique accessories to add to my looks such as this adorable rose gold pineapple tumbler and remixing my clear vinyl bag by placing fun editorial magazine prints of the fabulous, Rihanna on the front and back of the bag!! It was fun to see this series come to life in the pictures and outfits and I hope that translates to you as well.

I hope you are enjoying this “Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas” series so far. Stay tuned, this series is not over yet! If you missed the last two posts of this series, check out Part One HERE and Part Two HERE. Leave a comment below if you are enjoying it so far!

Amazon Multi Color Midi Skirt

Zara Wide Strap Stretch Top in Pink

Shrimps “Antonia” Dupe Beaded Bag in Black

Mango Floral Drop Earrings (no longer avail) Similar HERE and HERE

Zara Clear Vinyl Sandal Also love THESE and THESE

This gorgeous look is part 2 of my Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas series! I happened to run across this stunning multicolor midi skirt on …. AMAZON!! Yes you guys, Amazon! As if I need any more reason to shop Amazon, their Fashion options are amazing! This multicolor midi skirt is perfect for any summer vacation or summer outfit look. Its lightweight, packable and the colors give the best summer time vibes. The best part… this skirt is under $30!!

I paired my multicolor midi skirt with a simple pink tank I found at Zara. I also linked some other pink cami options for you to shop as well.

Must Have Handbag & Clear Shoe You Need!

Let’s also discuss this cute beaded handbag. Its another AMAZON find! Seriously y’all, Amazon for the win!! This bag is a spot on version of the Shrimps “Antonia” bag for more than half the price. I first spotted the Shrimps bag on one of my favorite fashion bloggers, KarenBritChick Youtube channel and fell in love with how she styled it. I was pleasantly surprised to find such an exact dupe at such a great quality. This bag is such a great statement bag. It comes in a variety of colors such as Ivory and green etc. Definitely check it out and get the look for less!

Also, we need to discuss the clear shoe trend. I wasn’t too sure about it at first. It was another trend that I just didn’t understand the hype behind. It wasn’t until a blogger friend of mine posted this shoe on her Instagram stories that I became a little intrigued. I went to Zara that same day and tried them on. I loved them! Especially, when I paired them with a few outfits. It definitely goes with any and everything. It extends the length of your legs and looks so good on your foot. I mean, just look at it with this skirt! The skirt is so busy, it needs a simple shoe to work along with it. Clearly… no pun intended.. this shoe fit the bill!

This multicolor midi skirt is the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe!

I hope you can see how this outfit is such a good summer vacation outfit. I could see myself wearing it to a nice dinner or an evening concert, or even a daytime event. The possibilities are endless! Make sure you grab this skirt ASAP before its gone!

Its basically Summer time here in Texas which means its time to pull out all of our summer fashions! When I think of summer, I think of fun beach, cruises or poolside vacations. I decided to do a round up of fun Summer Vacation outfit ideas as a blog series over the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy it! If you’re like me, you always search for good summer vacation outfit ideas for an upcoming trip. Every piece in this summer vacation outfit idea series will be workable pieces you can wear time and time again. And of course affordable options that just looks darn good!

You guys, I think this is my first swimsuit post that I ever did on the blog. I guess its about time, right? This Adore Me black swimsuit is so good you guys! I always feel super confident wearing a one piece swimsuit. I personally feel that the cut out detail makes it a little sexy, but still flattering and not too over the top.

As you can see, the basis of this look is a neutral theme. Its easy & simple basics that doesn’t require much thought. Its best to have easy cover ups that will take you from the beach or pool to lunch or shopping if you are at a resort or hotel. My linen shirt and linen pants are perfect as they’re both lightweight and breathable. Pair this look with an adorable straw beach hat and over sized sunnies and you’re golden!

My Summer Vacation Outfit Ideas Series Continues!

I hope you will enjoy my Summer vacation outfit ideas series on the blog. I have quite a few looks that I am excited to share with you over the next few weeks. So stay tuned!

TGIF!

A Spring blazer is quite essential as the weather is fickle and is always hard to tell if you need a jacket or not. So I thought I’d share one of my fav blazers from Zara from last year. This is a great example of a spring blazer because the color exudes the season. Unfortunately, this blazer is no longer available, but I rounded up some amazing spring blazer options I think you would love.

Linen would be my fabric of choice for a spring blazer as it is lightweight and breathable. So majority of my selections are linen! Yes, they may wrinkle a bit but if you can find a linen blend blazer, that could be a great option to avoid heavy wrinkles as well.

My high waisted denim jeans are amazing don’t you agree? I shared these Charlotte Russe jeans a few months ago on my Instagram and everyone fell in love with them. Unfortunately, Charlotte Russe is out of business, although they are supposed to return under new management from my understanding. In the meantime, I did find some dupes for you. My denim is more of a skinny jean and has a lot of stretch. The dupes I found are not a skinny fit, so keep that in mind when you are shopping.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend if you are a mom! Thank you so much for the kind words of love I received on my last blog post. It means the world to me to receive encouragement from such a great community of women.

I usually encourage every year for Mother’s Day for those of you who are blessed to still have your mother here to show them and tell them how much you love and appreciate them! I know some may not have a great relationship with their mother due to whatever issues or what have you. But, don’t take their being here and alive for granted. Those of us like myself who do not have the pleasure of having their mother living and breathing on Earth would love to share one more Mother’s Day, one more hug and one more kiss. It is my prayer that you share in this day in joy, laughter and smiles!

Motherhood is one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my life. I am so blessed to be the mother to Camille and Xavier. They are my world. I don’t take the gift of motherhood lightly at all. But, can I be free to share the part of motherhood that has been eye opening and emotional for me? Let’s chat about it shall we?

Xavier won’t eat. He only wants to be breast fed. He’s also very clingy towards me. Its hard sometimes to even put him down to take a shower or eat a meal without him bursting into tears. These things have made it challenging and a little stressful for me. We have consulted the doctor on what to do to get him to eat and it appears he may need a little therapy or see a GI specialist to determine the underlying cause. I’m hoping to find an answer to this soon!

As a mom, I am definitely concerned and want a solution to the problem immediately. Its said that breast milk or formula as the sole source of nutrition is fine for babies under a year. Which I am ok with, however, he is not gaining weight as he should. So the pressure to ensure he gains weight at this point is kind of on me since he is exclusively breastfed and refuses to take a bottle. I know this will probably resolve itself overtime. But, with him being so attached to me, it can become a little draining and exhausting to basically be your child sole source of comfort when a toy or daddy just wont do.

Sometimes you just have to cry!

The other day he was so fussy and crying so hard; just me trying to jump in the shower for a few minutes caused a major melt down for him. He’s usually happy to be in his walker in the bathroom while I shower, but that day, he wasn’t having it. The last few weeks he also hasn’t been sleeping well and waking up a good 3-4 times during the night to eat. I am assuming he’s either teething or a growth spurt. So of course, I am very much tired.

It was a rough day and I had reached my max. I text’d my husband to please come home while tears welled up in my eyes. I felt sorry for myself and sorry for my baby because he wasn’t happy unless I held him all day long. Thankfully my husband came to the rescue and had him while I took Camille to ballet. It gave me a chance to take a deep breath and find some peace, even in just the drive to her ballet class.

Once I got home and we got the kids to bed, I talked, well cried to my husband about just feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Of course, he told me I was a great mom and validated me in what I do daily for our family. But, it was hard to even let those words come out of my mouth because as a mom, I feel like I shouldn’t complain. There are other moms out there with kids who “appear” to be managing it all with a smile on their face. But, I know that they have those days too where they just want to scream, cry and find some sort of calm in the craziness of the day.

Its okay to ask for help!

Motherhood is such a gift, how dare I complain about it? This is where I have to tell myself its ok to let all of “this” out: to cry and just reset my mind and feelings. My husband is very much supportive and will help if I need him. But, I have to learn or allow myself to say, “hey can you please… a lot more often then I do now.

I think because I am a stay at home mom, (SAHM) I try to take care of household things and the kids so that my husband can relax when he gets home from a busy day at work. But, that may not be our season right now. Right now, I may need him to help out a little more just so I can not feel so overwhelmed and stressed. Sometimes a spa day or a lunch date alone just isn’t enough. Sometimes you just need HELP!

You will have good days and you will have bad days..

I wrote all of this as a reminder to myself to not try and do it all, ALL THE TIME! Its okay to cry some tears, scream at being frustrated and take some deep breaths to get through the remainder of the day. Its okay to feel this way and still be a great mom at the same time.

The following day after I had my cry session with my husband was a great one. I took Camille to swim class and watched her have so much fun. The kids and I went to lunch and I just felt more free and peaceful. I enjoyed my day with them! When my husband came home, he gave Xavier his bath and got Camille started with hers. I felt more calm, not anxious to get everything done or rushed. Xavier only woke up once last night too! It was a good night. It was a better day!

Talk to fellow moms about their experiences!

It is my prayer that me sharing this vulnerable moment with you helps in some way. I am very thankful too for the mommy Facebook groups that I am a part of that are non- judgmental and a safe place to chat with other moms who may be experiencing tough days. Please let me encourage you to chat with fellow mommies too if you feel stressed. Community is so important in this phase in motherhood. There are plenty of moms who can raise their hands and say, “hey me too!”

I am sure my pretty pictures on the blog give the appearance that I am easy breezy and care free. But let me tell you something! The power of a good outfit, a poppin’ lip and a little photo editing never hurt nobody!

Zara Polka Dot Slip Dress

Black Heeled Sandals

ALDO Bucket Bag

NARS Velvet Lip Pencil in “Mysterious Red”

Ok one last slip dress post, I promise! This is the black & white polka dot cutie I told you about in my last post. This black & white polka dot slip dress is another Zara find and under $50!! How great is that? I decided to wear the slip dress alone in this look as the polka dot print is bold enough to wear alone. Slip dresses are so comfortable as they are generally loose and fluid. And who doesn’t like the feel of satin on their skin? I know I sure do love it!

Whats unique about this polka dot slip dress is the print itself. Most slip dresses are a solid color, but this of course has polka dots. Polka dots to me are very whimsical and fun. There’s nothing wrong with that combination if you ask me. How do you feel about polka dots? Do you love or hate them?

This look would be cute for date night with heels and a statement bag. Or you can pair it with a tee and plain white sneakers during the day. Slip dresses are a great transitional piece. Check out how I styled my last few slip dress posts HERE and HERE!
