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!

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.

 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!

 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.
