Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018!

Wow…long time, no talk! How are y’all??? I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted on the blog. It has taken me so long to get back into the swing of things since I got back from Colombia. Unfortunately, I have put blogging on the back-burner since I got back from my trip, but don’t worry, that will change soon! I have three photo shoots planned for tomorrow, so get ready for more consistent content coming this month!

In the meantime, I finally have a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post up for you guys! I’m sure most of you are sick and tired of hearing about the sale, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt to make a post on it. I ordered four items from the sale (technically five, but I thought creating an outfit around a bra would be unnecessary), and I thought it would be fun to create outfits out of the four items I bought. One requirement I have for when I purchase an item, is if I can create at least three different ways that I can wear it in my head. It’s a good rule of thumb to have while shopping in order to make sure that I will get my money’s worth out of it. So, for each item I purchased, I took one of the outfits I created in my head, and put it on paper for y’all. A majority of the items in this collage are a part of the Nordstrom Sale, but if they aren’t on sale, they are at least from Nordstrom! If you aren’t a Nordstrom cardholder, don’t forget that the sale goes public on July 20th!

Hey, everyone!!! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, even though it’s only been about five days. I wanted to pop on here today, not only to share my outfit, but to give you all a quick update for the coming month of June!

In June, I wanted to let y’all know that I do not plan on posting very much on my blog, if at all. I do have a few blog posts planned that I might try to post in June, but I am also considering saving them for July. I haven’t decided yet. The reason for this is that I am leaving for a three-week trip to Medellín, Colombia in June with Juan and his family. My boyfriend and his family are from Colombia, and although Juan and I have been together for over four years, this is my first time ever visiting the country where he was born! It is also my first trip out of the U.S. ever!!! I am very very very excited!!! A little nervous too, but mostly excited! We won’t be getting back to the states until early July, and three weeks is quite a long trip. Because it is my first trip outside of the states, a trip where I get to enjoy the culture that my boyfriend was raised in, as well as a trip where I get to spend so much quality time with his family, the blog is not really something that I want to be focusing on during that time. I really don’t want to have to stress about finding shooting locations, or taking time of out of everyone’s day for me to take blog photos, and things like that. Also, there is no way that I can afford to purchase three weeks worth of new clothing to post.

So again, I may try to post at least a few times before I leave for the trip, but my time before we leave is going to be very jam-packed as well, so that is why I still haven’t decided. I pretty much work non-stop during the beginning of June (literally everyday), before I head to Charlotte for my little brother’s high school graduation, where there will be a ton of family in town for me to spend time with as well, which is another reason for me to put blogging on the back-burner in June. I’m not even sure if I will have time to get blog photos taken (especially with all of the rain we’ve been having), let alone post them.

To be honest, I am really looking forward to this break! I love my blog so much, but the past couple months it has been stressful for me, not necessarily because of the work it requires, but for other reasons. The social media that goes into running a style blog can be a stressful and discouraging thing, and I think the planning and the focus on followers that goes into it is what I am most looking forward to taking a break from!

But speaking of social media, I will definitely be posting some outfit pictures from my trip on my Instagram! I also plan on posting a lot on my stories as well! I may not be posting as frequently on Instagram as I normally do, but I definitely won’t be completely inactive haha! If you want to follow along on my Colombian adventure, be sure to follow me on Instagram (or on Facebook if you don’t have Instagram)!!!

I hope that this post wasn’t too rambly, and that all of you amazing and kind people can understand where I am coming from with the much-needed break! Again, I will not be falling off the face of the earth haha, as I do plan on still posting on my Instagram (perhaps just not as frequently). I just don’t plan on posting on my blog for the month of June. But come July, I will be back in full force, and with a recap of my trip as well!!!

Thank you all so much for supporting me, and for following along with me! Maybe this break is just what I need to get my creative juices flowing again!

As they say in Colombia… ¡Chao!

Woohoo!!! It’s the weekend!! I literally just got back from the beach, and let’s just say that I am a tad burned haha. Not too bad though, so hopefully it fades to a bronze! At least we can hope! But it was seriously the perfect day at the beach on Sullivan’s Island. The weather was gorgeous, and there was a breeze the whole time so I didn’t feel too hot. My friend and I also went and got chicken salad sandwiches and lemonade at this cafe on the beach too. Such a great day! Now I am just waiting on my parents to get here because they are visiting me this weekend (and also procrastinating on cleaning before they get here too hehe)!

This top is so cute and it’s on sale!!! It’s so easy to just throw on and go. And I am also obsessed with my earrings. I loved them so much that I went and got them in another color! When they are only around $7, why not??

I hope you all have a great memorial day weekend!! And hopefully the rain chills out. I don’t know about you, but I would really like to see sunshine on my weather app for once!!!

Hello!!! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My boyfriend, Juan, came to visit me this weekend and we had a great time together (like that’s anything new though *I say as I giggle and blush like a giddy school girl*). I worked most of the time that he was here, but we would rather get to see each other for a little bit than not at all!

Also another random thought, I found out last week that you can get your fries well-done at Chick-fil-A. I hate when I get fries from there and they are all soft and mushy. But when you get them well-done, they are guaranteed to be crisp! It’s amazing! To say that this newfound knowledge has changed my life wouldn’t exactly be a lie.

Okay, now onto the actual purpose of this post. These blog pictures turned out to be some of the best I’ve taken in a long time! I just love this outfit! It’s really stylish, but still so comfortable. I borrowed this top from my mom’s closet, and it’s currently on sale for over 40% off! Also, I know these jeans are really expensive (I got them through my job), but if you are looking for a great investment pair of jeans, these are amazingggg. They are so soft and comfortable, and the subtle rips throughout are the perfect touch. I love them!!!

I am wishing you all a great rest of your week! And if you try your Chick-fil-A fries well-done let me know!
