Okay, first things first, we need to talk about the preview catalog for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale that just came out.  Have you guys seen it yet?? Seriously, go look. (Scroll to the bottom of the page to find it.) It looks like plaid is going to be big this fall (yay!), and leather skirts (double yay!), of course there are going to be some fab booties and swoon-worthy flats…I literally can’t wait till it starts in a couple weeks.

  Last year, I pulled an all-nighter the night the Nordstrom Anniversary sale started rounding up all the best pieces and it was seriously so fun.  I’m thinking this year of doing some live Facebook posts that night on my Facebook page, (are you following me over there yet?  We have a lot of fun.) letting you know the minute I find really good stuff, cause last year some of my favorite pieces sold out by the end of the 1st morning. #Annoying.  That way you won’t miss anything, and I get to drink a lot of Dr. Pepper. (Win/win)  Anyway, if you’re interested in hanging out all night with me, like a crazy shopper, come follow my Facebook page.  I promise I’m fun after 1 am. ;-)

Also, you can only shop the Nordstrom Anniversary early access if you have a Nordstrom card.  You definitely want to get one of these.  I wrote a post about how to sign up and what your options are here.  Even if you just use it during the sale and then lock it in a drawer the rest of the year, I swear it’s worth it.

feels like summer.

J.Crew Graphic Tee(25% off today). Ann Taylor culottes. Studded Flipflops. Straw Bag. Sunglasses. Necklace.

One of my favorite things to do when we have some free time, now that we’re on the East Coast, is go explore the shoreline.  Our farm is only about 25-30 minutes form the water, and I love that we’re so close.   We’ve been to several little New England beach towns now, Newport, RI, Mystic, Madison, and Old Saybrook, CT to name a few.  You know what?  They are exactly what you’d picture them being.  New England isn’t short on charm, that’s for sure, and every town seems just as quaint and filled with gorgeous cape style homes and little Inns, pretty boardwalks and long coastal grasses as the next.  It’s the quintessential American summer scene, and I feel like I’m waking up in a Normal Rockwell painting.

make it pink.

Hey ladies!  HAPPY FRIDAY!

I’ve got this fun pink front tie shirt look for you today, and a few updates on our life right now.

First of all, I don’t even know if I’ve mentioned this at all this week, but we got a puppy last Friday! We just moved onto a farm a few months ago, got a bunch of chickens, and thought it was time to add a good hearty farm dog to our family.  So naturally, we fell in love with a toy poodle that weighs approx. 1 pound.  (Not exaggerating.) But seriously though, he is the cutest, sweetest little dog ever.   We named him Ollie, and he basically spends all day trotting around behind us cracking us up, and all night keeping me up.  Crate training is no joke!  I feel like I have a newborn.

summer capsule packing.

English Factory Top. Similar Jeans. Brixton Hat. Hat Attack Straw bag. Studded flip-flops. Karen Walker sunglasses.

Road trips have been part of our summers pretty much since our family got started.  We’ve almost always lived far away from family so driving for visits was a yearly thing.  Now that we’re on the East Coast, we’re not really in driving distance of our family (unless we want to drive for several days straight) but we have lots of New England road trips planned for the next few years, and I am so excited to explore our new home.  Packing for travel can be such a headache, especially when you’re packing for 6 not just 1, and I like to think of myself as a packing ninja now.  Because when you have to fit clothes for that many people in 1 car, it is ALL about efficiency.  Enter: capsule packing.
