    Nordstrom Winter Sale & Spring Outfit

    Hello friends! I hope everyone is having a great week and hopefully yours is flying by a lot faster than mine.  Not that I’m in a rush to get to next week or whatever but I really need it to be the weekend so that I can take care of everything that I need to do before my trip! Today officially marks two weeks before my trip and guys I don’t think you understand the amount of excitement that is building inside!

    I’ll try to keep my excitement contained while I tell you about something else that I’m super excited and happy about and that is the Nordstrom Winter Sale! Guys if you haven’t checked it out what are you waiting for!?  They have a ton of really great items that you can transition into spring pieces and even some that will transition into summer pieces.  In my outfit I’m currently wearing a piece that is on sale and is a huge must so that you can wear it this year for fall & winter.  If you guessed the leather jacket then GIRL YES!  First off the color is perfection especially for spring but again can be transitioned into fall & winter.

    The shoes y’all already know I love and am just as obsessed with as everyone else and the way I styled them with the jacket makes it perfect for the spring season.  Also the dress I was wearing in my last post is part of the winter sale and under $30! As far as the rest of the outfit of course I wore stripes because I think stripes are an all year staple and I just love them! I also wore some skinny jeans and just rolled them up so that you could see the detail in the shoes.

    Out of the entire sale here are the top 10 things you should buy for this spring/summer.

    1. Maxi Dress-So I’m only 5’1 but I love Maxi dresses! They are so simple but can make you look great and like I feel like I actually tried when I wear one! Also this one comes in a ton of colors
    2. Lace Up Shoes-I mentioned this in my 10 Must Have Spring post and these babies are on sale! Perfect for spring & summer with jeans or a dress!
    3. Embroidered cardigan-This baby is perfect for our slow transition into spring especially for cooler nights.
    4. Embroidered clutch-With vacations to tropical places and spring break who doesn’t need this clutch! It’s perfect for spring and summer.
    5. Leather jacket-This is the jacket I’m wearing up above! It comes in three colors!
    6. Tassel Earrings-Another huge must for spring & summer and these babies on sale is a definite must!
    7. Bell Sleeve Tops-Another huge must for this spring! You can transition them into summer but with Texas heat being no joke I’m not sure I would wear them into summer.
    8. Destroyed jeans-These destroyed jeans are so cute and I have a ton that I love to wear for spring & summer time! Trust me if you don’t have a pair you need some!
    9. Ballet Flats-Okay first off I’m obsessed with these and the color is perfect for spring! I’m obsessed with blush so duh yeah I want them! J They also come in a ton of other colors for those who aren’t blush fans.
    10. Criss Cross Tee-I love basic tees but this one has a fun twist because of the criss cross. There are so many ways you can dress up this tee and is an essential for everyone!

    I hope you enjoyed todays look and all the wonderful sales!  Let me know what is your favorite purchase or thing from the Nordstrom Winter Sale!

    XOXO,

    Stripes for Spring

    Hello friends! It’s Monday and I’m actually a little bit happy! Okay so no I still don’t really care for Monday’s but as many of you can recall from last week I was sick with a cold and I’m happy to announce I’m no longer sick! Thank you to everyone who wished me well and also all those who gave me tons of home remedies!  When I was sick I made a HUGE boo boo and deleted all of my pending comments.  Seriously so annoying so if you can show some love on my last post here please do! If you originally submitted a comment I’m so sorry I have no idea what I clicked but they are all gone.  🙁

    I had a fun weekend of relaxation that’s right I was able to RELAX!  It’s been a while that I’ve just been able to stay home but it was definitely what the doctor ordered. I did a TON of online shopping (I mean what else do you do when you’re sick at home) and I got a bunch of things for the spring season!

    I was kind of sad when I couldn’t really enjoy last week’s cooler weather but when I walked out of the house this weekend the weather was so nice! It literally felt like spring was here and ready to stay! I did a huge clean out last year so I was ready to add some fun new pieces to my wardrobe.  With President’s day being today I found a ton of deals all weekend long (and they are still available for you to shop).

    The dress I’m wearing is actually on sale!  I’ll link everything I’m wearing in down below.  I feel like stripes are a huge part of the spring season (and I love stripes). When I found this little number on sale I knew I needed it! I mean do you see those open sleeves! I was in love! It also comes in a bunch of different colors for those who don’t really like stripes.

    Also I know everyone is OBSESSING over these wedges right now.  Well I can’t say I’m not and these are some great dupes to the Chloe wedges that came out a couple years ago.  They are super comfy and pretty much identical. They are the go to wedge for the spring and an absolute must in your closet!

    For accessories, I kept it pretty simple and just wore some fun navy tassel earrings and you can never go wrong with some aviators. Also threw on this necklace from Kendra Scott that literally can go with anything.  The bag I got about 2 years ago but I’m pretty sure you can still find it.  Again I will link everything I’m wearing down below!

    I hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a great Monday.  Now that the day has officially started I’m more than ready for it to be over (haha).  I’m ready for some quality TV time and I have a ton of planning to do because my trip is offfically two weeks away this upcoming Wednesday! Time is really flying but I’m super excited for what’s to come!

    Have an amazing Monday with tons of coffee!

    XOXO,

    10 Spring Must Haves

    Happy Friday! It’s finally here the day everyone waits for Monday morning! I’m so happy it’s the weekend.  It’s been a good week besides the getting sick and having a cold majority of the week.  I have a lot of things to plan for the upcoming month and this week will be the perfect week to do it.

    One thing that I have been planning (well not really) is what outfits to wear for different events I have coming up! I’ve been doing a lot of browsing and shopping and there are so many cute things out for the spring! I’m still looking for a couple of things so not 100% done but I also don’t want to spend too much since I do have a trip coming up and my birthday is in less than a month! (so excited!) These 10 things are what I think are huge must haves for any spring wardrobe and I will definitely be purchasing them for mine.

    1. OTS Tops-These are were so in style last spring & summer and are back again! They have so many different styles and are always so cute on anyone!
    2. Floral dress-Nothing says spring time like flowers on a dress! I’ve always been a huge fan of floral because of all the colors and how they blend together!
    3. Wedges-Wedges are perfect for any summer outfit! Whether you are wearing a dress, shorts, jeans, or anything else they just go absolutely perfect!
    4. Tassel Earrings-Another thing that was in last year and are perfect for going into this spring! They come in a ton of colors and you can even wear them going into summer.
    5. Lace Up Sandals-Also back by popular demand! I love lace up shoes I have a ton of them! These will definitely be making there way into my closet soon!
    6. Embroidered denim-Embroidery is already a love in my book and now its appearing on a ton of things especially denim! I’m obsessed and you definitely need it in your closet for spring!
    7. Colorful bracelets-These tassel babies are way too cute! You just need to trust me on this one and get them! You will also be using them into summer.
    8. Blush bag-I have like 3 blush bags and counting! They are so cute and perfect for the spring time!
    9. Cold Shoulder Sweater-This is perfect for the spring time! Sometimes it can be a little chilly and this sweater is perfect for those chillier nights.
    10. Mules-These are amazing shoes that go with everything! They are very cute and great slip on shoe when you are headed out the door! I promise you need this and won’t regret them!

    I hope you guys enjoyed this must have spring guide! I’m still in search of a couple of these items but will definitely be adding them in real soon! I hope everyone has a great weekend and can’t wait to talk to you on Monday!

    XOXO,

    Weekend Recap: San Antonio

    Hello friends!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s Day! I got to spend the night with my Valentine that you all read about in my last post.  We didn’t do anything crazy we just ordered in some thai food, got Sprinkles Cupcakes, and watched love movies like A Walk to Remember.  Needless to say I had a great Valentine’s Day! Only thing that kind of sucked is the weather got crazy cold here yesterday after a storm and I got sick.  (Literally my luck).

    Today I will be doing a quick weekend recap.  I was going to do one Monday but with Valentine’s Day on Tuesday you can see why I chose what I did.  So as many of you know I decided to take the weekend off as a break.  I had been over working myself and I guess you can say my brain and body were definitely feeling it.  Luckily I got to spend my time off with friends in San Antonio.

    I used to go to school in San Antonio when I was in college and later transferred so it holds a certain special place in my heart.  When we visit we usually stay with some friends and they live close to the city which is nice for us visiting.
    We got there Saturday and while all the guys went to play basketball, the girls got to sit around and chit chat and just catch up.  Later that night we went to dinner at a place called ‘El Machito’ that’s at the Quarry.  It was really good! They also had very reasonable options on the menu! After we went to nearby bar that sadly I don’t remember the name but they had such a delicious prickly pear tea! (I’ll try to get the name!)  After, we went to a bar downtown called Coyote Ugly.  Definitely an experience for those who have never been there that’s all I’ll say. (No but seriously)Sunday, we got up and decided on such a cute little spot for brunch.  The name of the restaurant is “Feast” and they have a ton of delicious options!  I highly recommend it if you visit San Antonio.  Just make sure to get there early or call ahead if you have a large party.  We had six people in our group and the wait was an hour.  Luckily while we waited we found a super cute spot called “The Friendly Spot.”  It had $4 mimosas and they weren’t your average size either.  Definitely a good place to go for Sunday Funday.  It’s also dog friendly for all my dog families and they have a fun swing set for kids! After brunch we went to the Riverwalk.  Of course if you have never been to San Antonio before I highly recommend going.  It’s one of the biggest attractions there besides the Alamo.  They have a ton of delicious restaurants and cool shops all along the Riverwalk.  Also they have water taxi tours for those who have never been and want to learn a little about the history of the city and it’s buildings.  It was a great day to walk around and see it because I hadn’t been to the Riverwalk in sometime.

    We ended the day there and said our goodbyes to our friends.  We had such a good time and it felt so nice to get away even if it was for a day.  Thank you to my friends for being so hospitable.

    I hope you guys enjoyed this weekend recap.  Let me know what you did this past weekend or how your Valentine’s Day went!

    XOXO,
