Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks: Fall Classic Essentials + Athletic Wear

Happy Friday, Friends!! Here’s another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post for you. Today, I’m sharing my Classic Fall Essentials and favorite of Athletic wear. Let’s start with the classics. This is my first time playing around with a new feature so just click on the items in my collage and it’ll take you right over to the site!

I’m a firm believer in all of these pieces and I rotate a version of each of them h e a v i l y all autumn long. First, let me talk about that expandable Longchamp bag. I’ve owned it for 7 years now and literally just brought it to the lake last weekend. It’s the workhorse of my bags! I keep it small if I’m carrying it as a purse but when I really need to load it up, I just unzip it and suddenly it’s practically triple the size. Also, I packed our tub of vegan butter in there and it melted on the drive home. I just wiped it down, rinsed it out and it’s good as new. If you get one thing, that’s it.

I think the best thing about Fall is that rotating a couple outfits is so easy. That green jacket over the striped tee with black denim, then the striped tee with the trench coat and high waisted denim…it’s just so simple and effortless.

On to Athletic wear- I have to say that even within hours of me making this collage, some of the items have already sold out. MAN! I’m including a whole shop below so you don’t miss out on all the awesome athletic wear because it’s just that good, guys. Click the item you’re interested in and it’ll take you right over.

Have you picked up anything from the sale yet? Let me know! Have a beautiful weekend.

Summer Hair Essentials

Summer is officially here, and I don’t know about you but my hair can already feel it. Between the chlorine, the humidity, the sun and the tangles from wearing it natural, this mane of mine needs all the pampering it can get. Here’s how I keep my hair growing healthy and strong in these dog days of summer. 

The Best of Amazon Prime for Fathers Day

Father’s Day is this weekend, friends. Let me say it again: this weekend. I’m a huge celebrator and gifts are my love language so I’ve had this day on my mind for a while but sometimes Fathers Day sneaks up on us and before we know it, it’s Saturday and we’re having our kids paint a pinecone. If you’re still scrambling for a gift, Here are my favorite Amazon Prime gifts that will arrive to your doorstep promptly in 2 days! And I’m not talking a bouncy ball or a mug here…these are some seriously good gifts. The dad in your life will have no idea you ordered it on your phone on a Wednesday. Win.

Flattering Swimsuits

The requirements for my swimsuits used to be really simple: don’t give me crazy tan lines. Since having kids, my swimwear has quite a hefty list to stand up to. It needs to hold certain things in and hide other things. It needs to cover my bum enough to be appropriate for chasing after kids and stay up when I’m dunking them in the water. Also, I have to feel fantastic in it. With the teenier-than-ever bottoms and strappier-than-ever top trend, finding the right suit can be intimidating but I’ve chosen a few favorites I can’t wait to try.
