5 amazing Memorial Day sales to shop now! We have some rain in the forecast so I know what I’ll be doing while Charlie naps…

It’s not new news that Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale is in full force. To be honest, this sale can be overwhelming to browse. I don’t dare to attempt the store in person because it is crazy! I found a few goodies online like this embroidered twill jacket, these Tory Burch wedges that are perfect for summer, this Burberry parka (want!), pink Hunter rain boots, this Nike zip up and this Stella McCartney bag

One of my most asked questions is about my beachy waves/curls. My secret weapon is my T3 Whirl Trio curling iron. I splurged on it a year and a half ago and it was the BEST DECISION ever. T3 never has sales but they are offering $25 off when you spend $150 or more with code SAVE25, $50 off when you spend $250 or more with code SAVE50 and $125 off when you spend $500 or more with code SAVE125. I also love their hairdryers and flat irons

LOFT has the prettiest new arrivals and they have 40% off EVERYTHING with code VACAY. I’m especially loving this jumpsuit, this gingham wrap blouse, this stripe dress, this boho blouse, this LWD and this denim skirt

As you may have noticed on my site, Abercrombie is making a comeback! I’ve been SO IMPRESSED by them lately. So many good basics and pieces that are on trend but very budget friendly. They are offering 40% off the entire store! I’m loving this easy stripe t-shirt dress, this beautiful linen midi dress, this OTS top, these skinny jeans, this gorgeous red dress (perfect wedding guest dress!), this two piece set would be cute for summer concerts and this easy ruffle top

 

J.Crew has 30% off your purchase with code SWEET. I always use these sales to stock up on basics that I know I need but always neglect to buy. Like my favorite t-shirtsbodysuits and layering tanks. Also this cute wide brim hat, my new favorite earrings, a cute beach poncho, white shorts for the 4th of July and a dreamy maxi dress

I’ve been getting so many questions about essential oils and how we use them (as seen on my instagram) so I thought I would try to tackle this topic in one place. Be aware that this is a very long post! I assume we are all interested in essential oils for different reasons. My knowledge of them was very minimal until a reader recommended them for insomnia issues during my first pregnancy. For a long time I never needed to learn more but slowly I’ve realized the benefits of essential oils in terms of health, home, beauty…the list goes on. Let’s start with how I was introduced to oils and what we really use them for on a daily basis…

Let me tell you a little story about Dave. On our first date he was wearing a navy long sleeve Ralph Lauren polo, bootcut flare jeans and the clunkiest flip flops I’ve ever seen. We have a picture from our date at the Skydeck on the Willis Tower and we always laugh at how far his style has come. I like to think that it is thanks to me. Over the past two years I’ve watched Dave become way more interested in what he wears. He gets excited about new things but never splurges or buys anything for himself (and if he does it is from Kohl’s or Eddie Bauer #dad). Enter Trunk Club

I ordered this Everlane slip dress a few weeks ago and was so excited to wear it. Honestly, I feel like my style is a little more modest compared to how you typically see a slip dress styled. I’m not sexy enough for those looks (maybe some day!) but this style is something I can get on board with! I pulled it out on a cooler day that required a sweater but was so excited to see that it can be layered over a t-shirt/sweater or worn underneath a leather or denim jacket. It also comes in white and is only $75 – the perfect excuse to try the trend!

Most days you can find me in sneakers. My days with Charlie are always all over the place so I really rely on comfortable shoes to get us from point A to point B. With the weather warming up we have been spending a ton of time outdoors. Living in the city means that we tend to walk everywhere – to/from the grocery store, to the park, to music class, to dinner, for coffee, etc. I had been on the hunt for a new sneaker style that didn’t feel super athletic or too white. Do you know what I mean? I actually saw my mom wearing these Toms Del Rey sneakers and totally copied her…
