Styled In Sequins: 2018

Best of The NSale - ActiveWear

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Happy Tuesday, friends! Today on the blog I'm sharing the best activewear from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Every year I try to stock up on some activewear during the sale because the prices are unbeatable! The items I always look out for are tanks, sweatshirts, sports bras, leggings, and sneakers. 

I also wanted to talk a little bit about my current workout routine. For the longest time I actually wasn't working out at all. I thought that since I had a naturally fast metabolism I didn't need to worry about working out. However, after having a few health issues and realizing I wouldn't be able to get my weight over 105 pounds regardless of how much I ate I decided it was time for a more healthy lifestyle! For the past two months I've been trying out Pure Barre and absolutely LOVE it! I've never really found a workout that worked for me or kept me interested. However, with Pure Barre I'm SO excited to go to the classes!

If you've never heard of Pure Barre before here's what it is! Pure Barre is a full-body work out that focuses on stretching each section of the body in order to create lean muscles without the bulk. The workout utilizes the ballet barre to preform small isometric movements. I'm already seeing serious changes in my body after my first two months of Pure Barre. I will say that I had no idea what to expect during my first class, but my instructor made me feel very comfortable. She corrected me a few times during the class because they will use words you probably won't understand but you eventually get the hang of it! I also didn't realize my entire body would be shaking. I had never felt my body shake the way it does during Pure Barre. The shaking is totally normal and actually means the workout is working! One of my favorite parts of Pure Barre is the music! I love the upbeat music during the workout and then after the workout is complete they play really calming music that sends you right into meditation mode!

As of now I'm attending Pure Barre three times a week but would love to start going five times a week! That's a huge goal I'm trying reach by my third month.

Now here are my top picks from their activewear section!

Friday, June 29, 2018

Happy Friday, friends! This week has been crazy busy so I apologize for my lack of blog posts. Ava had a health issue and we had to see a specialist. We went to get her an ultrasound today and the doctor said everything looked good. She's on antibiotics now and is already feeling so much better! Thank you all so much for your prayers and for checking in on us.

I love wearing these shorts and pairing them with dressy tops or casual tops. This Off The Shoulder Top is SO cute! I have really love off the shoulder tops so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this one! It's also super cute for the 4th of July!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 - Sneak Peek!

Monday, June 25, 2018

Happy Monday, friends! Today on the blog I'm SO excited to share a sneak peek into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. YES, the greatest time of the year is almost here y'all! This is the biggest sale of the year and it's one of the most awaited sales ever. Here's what you need to know about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale if you never shopped it before.

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is when Nordstrom releases brand new fall merchandise at discounted prices! You'll see designer brands at seriously discounted prices and you get a sneak peek into fall trends! I'm not only talking about clothes here I'm talking about home decor, beauty and so much more! After the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends all those items that were discounted go back to regular price, so it's important to have a strategy when shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to ensure you get all the products you want.

What's with all the hype?
There is so much hype around the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because it's seriously the only time you'll be able to shop brand new merchandise at a discounted price! Once the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends those prices go right back to their original price.

When can I shop the sale?!
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins July 20-August 5. However, Nordstrom does offer an Early Access Sale which begins July 12-July 19! The Early Access Sale is only available to Nordstrom debit and credit card holders. There is still time to apply for a credit card or the debit card option to shop the Early Access Sale! You can sign up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card here.

Should I have a game plan for shopping the sale?
A million times yes!! I highly recommend having a strategy set up to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I remember the first time I shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I was so overwhelmed by all the discounted prices by the time I had my shopping cart full majority of items were already SOLD OUT. Trust me products will sell out fast so you want to ensure you have a game plan! 

I highly recommend having a list of products you want to buy. Each year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale I try to buy the following products: (2) staple long sleeve basic tops in white and stripes, staple cardigans, jeans, scarfs, knee high boots, booties, staple fall bag, and fall tops. 

Lastly, I recommend knowing your size before you buy. As I said before majority of products will sell out so it's important to know your size. Plan a trip to Nordstrom to try-on some of your favorite brands! Think shoes, tops and jeans! Some brands that I really love to shop during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is BP., Leith, Lush, TopShop, Vince Camuto, and Paige.

Here are some of the best sellers from last year's sale!

All About Lemon Print

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Lemon Jumpsuit (similar options linked below) // Oversized Circle Bag //

Happy Tuesday, friends! Is anyone else obsessed with the lemon print trend? I think it's so fun and perfect for summer! I also love dressing Ava in lemon print. I guess you could say lemon looks great on any age! This jumpsuit I purchased recently is always selling out, but I was so happy when I finally got my hands on it. The material is really great and I love the tie front detailing. I'm a sucker for jumpsuits even though you have to get completely nude when you pee. lol! They are still my favorite type of clothing to wear. I paired this jumpsuit with my all-time favorite wedges and this oversized round bag that I've been wearing nonstop!
