- For The Home | Desk Accessories -


Last week I posted this picture of my desk on Instagram and had no idea it would get such positive feedback. I received many emails and comments requesting more pictures and details so I figured- why not give you guys a front row view! Office supplies might be one of my weaknesses, right next to buying lipstick. Maybe it’s the teacher in me, but I get so excited to see new (and cute) office supplies.

I should probably clarify, this is not my teacher desk (I only wish my teacher desk was this cute and clean). This is the desk I use at home. After moving a couple weeks ago, we are finally getting things organized. But please don’t be fooled, if only you could see the mess of laundry behind my right now. I will be sure to post a home office tour once things are finished. What items do you keep on your desk? I am always looking to find new little accessories for the office. It just seems to make working that much better, right?






On the Desk: The World is Your Oyster Print by Anna Grisham | Monogrammed Pencil Cup | Carpe Diem Candle (smells amazing and would make a cute pencil or brush holder after it’s used) | Nate Berkus Dog Tape Dispenser (sold out online, maybe try in store?) | Q & A a day: A 5 Year Journal | The Little Dictionary Of Fashion | Striped iPad Case (on sale) | Palm iPhone Case c/o | Pencils via Home Goods | Essie Nail Polish- Bikini So TeenyMarshmallow, Pansy

- Leather Details -


When it comes to Summer dressing, leather usually isn’t the first to come to mind. Light and breezy layers, rolled up shorts and my favorite sandals are at the top of my list. However, this Vegan Leather Panel Top has me rethinking leather for Summer. I scooped this top (now on sale!) up a few months ago from Anthropologie and have not stopped wearing it. Since the fabric is light and the leather is perforated, it makes for the perfect Summer-Fall top. I love a top that is versatile throughout the year.

- Nordstrom Anniversary Sale -

Happy weekend! Just wanted to share a few more favorites from the current Nordstrom sale. The anniversary sale is now open to all (not just cardholders). Like I’ve mentioned, the sale is really good. I hope you guys find some things you like! Happy Shopping! XX

- Black Lace -


I used to think that wearing all black was overwhelming, however my mind has changed since I found these black lace shorts. I wanted a look that would be nice for a night out and decided to mix shades of black with this Equipment Silk Blouse and this black blazer (now on sale) to throw on later.  I like the idea of sticking to one color palette, but this would work just as well with a white blouse or dressed down with chambray and flats.

- Sale Alert | Tory Burch -


Is it just me or does it seem like this is the week of “sales”? As I was scrolling through my inbox this morning I felt slightly overwhelmed by all the sales going on. The only one that’s really getting all the buzz is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which happens to be amazing.  But you know when you get to the email, and you actually get excited because it’s a sale worth looking at? Well, this is it. Tory Burch just moved hundreds of products to their sale page and for this weekend only is taking an additional 20% off. Now deciding on what to get is a different story because it’s all really good. Not just Summer items either, they have sweaters and shoes that are Fall ready. I’m off to the beach in 2 weeks and I think this is the perfect time to buy this adorable beach tunic and these sandals! Happy Shopping!

- Summer Vibes -

IMG_6622My closet usually consists of neutral pieces. I like to mix and match of course, but if I do prints, they are usually pretty subdued. I knew this Lilly Pulitzer Maxi from St. Bernard Sports was the perfect solution to brighten up my wardrobe. The versatility of this dress is endless. I wore it here with wedges, but I plan to wear it to the beach thrown over a bikini (love this one from Mara Hoffman) and paired with a lightweight denim jacket at night. The fabric is so soft and doesn’t wrinkle- making it easy for travel. Needless to say, this dress is a must for Summer!

- Nordstrom Anniversary Sale -

Happy Tuesday! As you may know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Pre-Sale is here!  I already shared with you some items that I found on Sunday, but I went back and found some other great steals. I found this Philip Lim Pashli Crossbody Satchel on sale (can’t believe it) and I am seriously debating on scooping this up. It’s a bag that is clearly wearable all year and it never goes on sale. This Chloe Leather Hobo is another great find that would make for a beautiful Fall bag. The leather is gorgeous. As I mentioned before, this is Early Access only, which means only card holders can shop. If you are interested in signing up for the debit card, you can read my opinion here. The sale is open to all starting July 17th! Happy Shopping!

- Beauty Talk | Pink Lips -


Lip color has always been one my favorite beauty buys. No matter how I feel or whatever mood I’m in, buying a lipgloss can always cheer me up! By the looks of it, I am a true fan of the pinks. These are some of my favorites and ones that have proved to be the most flattering on various skin tones (at least according to tons of reviews). This YSL Lipgloss is the absolute best pink, it lasts for hours and keeps my lips super soft. What do you use…any favorites?

- Sale Alert | Nordstrom -

It’s not common that you find me posting on a Sunday, but I just got back from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I couldn’t wait to share the best of the best with you guys! Right now Early Access is only available for card holders, but it’s worth checking out! What is Early Access? It’s an exclusive time to shop the sale early (before all the good stuff is gone!) using your Nordstrom Debit or Credit Card. Just log in to your account and click my links to shop! (or, just take a sneek peak anyways even if you’re not a card holder) **Side note: I’ve never (ever) been a fan of signing up for “store” credit cards or anything like that, but this is one that I actually went for. I chose to do the debit card since it links straight to your account and acts like your normal debit card. You still get all the same perks as the credit card. Happy Shopping!

- On The Go -

On The GoOne of the best things about living in the Dallas area is the abundant of restaurants, shops and local entertainment. Our particular location is unique in that we can walk to pretty much anything. It can be bad on the ol’ wallet, but it sure makes dining and brunching a blast. Since we to walk almost everywhere, I like to carry a bag large enough to keep all my items on hand. With my Goyard tote, I am able to easily carry my camera, makeup bag, business cards, journal and a Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee. I can always go for a little caffeine pick-me-up at some point in the afternoon, and the new Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee is the perfect solution. Plus, it makes for a refreshing treat in the 100+ degree weather!
