NSale Beauty picks

Hi Friends!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to the public - yipee!! As I mentioned last week, this sale is one of the best of the year and a chance to get a peek at fall pieces at great prices.

I rarely talk about beauty products because my makeup routine is pretty simple (and boring honestly).  But the makeup that I wear, I love and buy over and over again and I always stock up on this time of year.  

Even at 29, I still think in terms of school years (the new fall season). Although makeup is not typically a priority, I always love stocking up on fresh new palettes like this one, this one and this one which are pretty much all you need!  And a fresh new scent and an oldie but goodie every year.  I love this perfume by Tory Burch and I have worn Daisy by Marc Jacobs since my wedding (almost two years ago).

I have been a Bobbi Brown girl since I learned what makeup was.  I love Bobbi's (I pretend like I actually know her) natural and effortless style.  On a typical day I wear this moisturizer with SPF ($46), this blush ($28), this mascara ($28), a little of this bronzer ($46), and lip gloss ($26).  These anniversary sale sets offer beautiful combinations with the makeup that I usually wear, but also throw in some fun new colors that I wouldn't think to use on a daily basis. I love that this set has everything you need for a great smokey eye - Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye mascara is my second favorite after Bobbi Brown Extreme Party (I like that it can be layered on and wont clump).

Have a fantastic week friends and let me know what else you would like me to cover!  The sale lasts until August 7th.

Favorite Fall Dresses - Anniversary Sale

Hi Friends,

I don't usually like to think about summer ending or fall clothing until the last possible moment - it really bums me out.... except during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It is Nordstrom's biggest sale of the year and they preview all of their incoming fall items at big discounted prices (and make the inevitability of fall coming just around the corner not so bad).

The early access sale is in full swing and is available to Nordstrom Card holders for two more days.  After the 21st the anniversary sale will be available to everyone through August 7th.

I love that all of these dresses are easy transition pieces and won't be forgotten about in the closest from now until fall.  This blush dress is under $25 and comes in 10 colors - I plan on wearing it with sandals now and booties, then tights boots and a jacket into the fall (such an easy piece!).  This cold shoulder shift is adorable, comfy, and really flattering (under $30).  

This is also the time that I stock up on work dresses.  This fuscia bow dress is perfect for meetings, or tea with the girls - there are only a few sizes left (under $100).  And although I am typically more drawn to color in my wardrobe, even I can't deny a classic LBD.  This little black dress is great for going for from meetings to date night or a cocktail party (under $100).

I will be sharing a few more roundups over throughout the sale, let me know if there is something you have your eye one and would like me to cover.
