Lately 7/13/2018




Navy Lace Dress (under $100)// Scarf  (blog post here, here)
Shop the Post:
Happy Friday the 13th! Today's 'Lately' post is a day late due to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale post that went live yesterday. Who shopped it and what were you most excited about?!

This week was such a doozy but still really great! I was either glued to my computer with work or running around like a crazy person trying to get everything done before today (like getting my car inspected and oil changed- woof) because I am en route to the lake in Georgia! We're there for 10 days (with a packed house) and I want to be able to spend as much time unplugged and relaxed. Needless t say, that required an intense amount of prep work (and a little work while on vacation)!

Wearing: So many of you have been requesting I style a wedding guest look, so here it is! I came across this gorgeous navy lace dress and thought it could be a great dress to have on hand. At under $100, this is one of those dresses that could work on a multitude of occasions and is just nice to have something like this on standby in your closet! It's not super formal but great for a summer wedding, date night, bridal shower, baby shower, etc. Plus, since it is navy blue, it will work in the fall and spring, too! I jazzed it up with one of my favorite scarves!

Eating: I'm partnering with Dole next week to share their Acai bowls on social media and you guys- you NEED to try these (this is not sponsored). You store them in your freezer, take them out and in 20-30 minutes they thaw into a perfect acai bowl. It comes with granola and fruit so you literally can grab this and go. Genius. 

Drinking: I'm on vacay mode as we speak and two drinks that Peyton and I are going to try and make during the week are the Paloma and a spicy margarita! Both are tequila-based cocktails and they are two of my favorites!

Sale-ing: Nordstrom Sale, but that's a big 'duh'. My picks are here, and there will be a try-on tomorrow!

Shop the Sale:

Sale-ing II: So as much as the Nordstrom Sale is a fun time of year, I do think that it can get blown out of proportion. So, I wanted to highlight some sales elsewhere with high-quality items at great prices! Like this navy blue crew neck alpaca sweater. It's such high quality, a classic cut, and a great neutral shade... you get an extra 15% off if you use the code SALEFINALE15.

Watching:
 Southern Charm season finale. Who is SO excited to watch the reunion?! 
Loving: I mentioned this recently, but Lake Pajamas are the BEST. I got a lot of questions about them, so I'm answering them here! They run true to size. When you receive them, they'll be big, but once you wash them, they shrink just a small bit. I would suggest sticking with your usual size. They're meant to fit roomy and comfortable. They have specific washing instructions. I don't follow them. I literally just wash them with everything else and dry them, and I have never had an issue. I have had a set for years and they're as good as new! They're insanely soft. Pricey, but worth every penny!

Loving II: I stumbled upon this Etsy site that makes stunning errands reminiscent of Rebecca de Ravenel! I love RDR earrings but they're super pricey! These have the same look but for so much less! These ones even have an Oscar de la Renta vibe!

Wanting:
 What do you guys think of this beach visor? I like to shade my face when I am out in the sun and I feel like this could either be soooo cute or downright nerdy! What do you think?! I have also been eyeing this classic black dress. It seems like it would be a closet staple and there is nothing I love more than a LBD!
Pittsburgh-ing: Last week, my parents and I headed to a Pittsburgh institution: The dirty O, for hot dogs and fries. If you are in Pittsburgh and have never been to the O, can you really say you're a true Pittsburgher?! This place is dive-y and has been in Oakland for forever. It has the best hot dogs and fries around!!

I say YES to the visor! It's definitely nerdy, but who cares?? I like that you could still wear your hair in a top knot/high pony with it on.
