Styled In Sequins: June 2018

Paper Bag Denim Shorts For $60

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. 

Now on to the outfit details of this post! I'm beyond obsessed with these Paper Bag Denim Shorts. They sold out immediately when they first came out on Nordstrom. I ended up buying them from the designer website because I loved the way they looked. They are not only super comfy but they also have a stretchy waist which is so amazing!! 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!

To make up for my lack of blog posts this week I will be posting something tomorrow regarding 4th of July sales! ;)

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!

Living In Maxi Dresses

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Yellow Maxi Dress (under $50) similar option (under $40)// Clear Strappy Sandal (under $50) // 
Round Straw Bag // Straw Hat (under $45)

Happy Thursday, friends! I've been loving maxi dresses lately especially with the warmer weather. The one I'm wearing in this post is currently sold out, but I'll let ya'll know when it's back in stock. I'm going to link a ton of maxi dresses at the bottom of this post so be sure to check that out! I paired this maxi dress with these clear sandals. I've been loving this trend for shoes lately and they are SO comfortable! I also found the PERFECT straw hat. Like this straw hat is the best straw hat I've ever owned! For size reference I'm wearing a size small in the hat but could have gone with an XS. Ya'll have probably noticed I've been wearing this straw bag on repeat. I love the size of this bag because it's so perfect for the beach or vacation! You really can fit so much in it. It's a little bit of splurge but will be your go-to bag for all your tropical vacations!

So a little bit about my day... today was a little rough for me since I've been trying to balance working full-time and running my blog full-time. A ton of projects popped up for work and I didn't have any time to post anything for my blog. It's getting to the point where I need to focus more of my attention on my blog and hopefully soon I'll be able to make some changes to make that possible. I'm seriously the worst at being patient. I want everything in that moment and it's so hard for me to just let things happen. I know when it comes to blogging full-time I have to be patient. To help me from not stressing out over how busy life is getting I've challenged myself to attend Pure Barre classes every day for a week! I've attended a few Pure Barre classes and absolutely love them. I always feel so refreshed and my entire mindset feels so different every time I leave class. I'm actually working on a fitness post for ya'll where I'll go more into my workouts and Pure Barre!

Thanks for reading!
