Introducing the Channel Stud™ by Each Jewels. These earrings are not only darling, but functional. Abby Dubois, former lead designer at Baublebar, reached out to me to see if I would show off her designs and I could hardly contain my excitement! She has patented the first earrings to hold your earbuds in place… (insert all the heart-eyed emojis)…
These earrings came in handy over the past few weeks, during my insanely intense workout schedule. Best of all? I wear them when I am not working out too! With a dozen styles to choose from, I am sure I will be back for more. I can’t wait to get my hands on the turquoise pair next.
Be sure to check out the Each Jewels website along with their social media, linked below. Get ready to see her amazing designs everwhere!
It is beginning to feel more and more like Summer here in Raleigh, NC. Although some love the heat, it is a bit humid for me. I am constantly on the lookout for loose tee’s to wear with my denim shorts (which are currently on sale for under $20!) on days when you can’t escape going outside.
I came across this tee on ASOS’ website a while back and thought the print was so fun! (Animal attraction?) When I actually received the shirt in the mail I was even more impressed with the new light-weight addition to my closet. In all honesty, the shirt was made to be oversized, so I probably could have sized down a bit. I would suggest doing so if you buy it. (Especially since it took 3-4 weeks to get it in the mail from ASOS.) Also, did I mention its only $26? #worthit
I had to chuckle a little bit when I got these photos because I forgot to take the hair tie off my wrist, which I normally do for shoots. Then I realized, you probably should have a hair tie at your disposal if you are living in Raleigh too, because it is HOT. 🙂
Finally, I wanted to mention that I created a whole tab on my blog called “Shop #NSale.” Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale runs until August 8th, which I mentioned in my last post, I decided to make a tab where you can see my top picks from the sale in an easy-to-access style. Simply scroll to the top of this page and click the “Shop #NSale” tab. You will find all of my top picks, along with their sale prices. Click on any of the items and you will be directed to the website. Easy peasy!
My favorite sale of the year is finally upon us at Nordstrom – #NSale! This sale is unlike any other in that it will put it’s NEWEST items in major brands on sale so you can stock up for the season! If you are a Nordstrom card holder, you get early access to all of the new Fall items before the rest of the world swoops them up. For the rest of you, the sale items will be available to you on July 22. The sale runs until August 8 but be warned, the good stuff goes fast!
Here are some #NSale Preparation tips:
Don’t Procrastinate. If you are looking for major designers like Tory Burch, Sam Edelman, Kendra Scott, etc., you should be proactive! They are always the first to sell out. You can scan the catalog here to get an idea of some specific items you are looking to purchase!
Read Reviews. Sizing can be tricky with different brands. If you are unsure how a specific designer makes their clothes, read the reviews of other items in their line. Customers will let you know honest opinions about whether they tend to run big/small, quality, etc. I don’t buy anything anymore without reading reviews!
When in doubt, buy BOTH sizes. I know you must be saying, “have you lost your mind?” The answer is no. Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shop because it has THE best customer service and return policy. In fact, if you are in between sizes and can’t decide, they suggest you purchase both and return the one that didn’t work. This is an important mentality for this sale in particular. Sizes will go fast and it is better to be safe than sorry.
Keep Fall Trends in mind. Buying for Fall before it is actually Fall can be a bit tricky. What will be the “new thing?” After all, we just made it to summer! I will be incorporating Fall 2016 trends into tomorrow’s post so you can feel confident in your purchase. Stay tuned!
Again, the popular brands are the first to go and they are not always guaranteed to carry all items in-store. If you are worried about your favorite item going fast, go ahead and order it online. They will deliver it quickly to your door! For last year’s sale post, click here.
