Guide to Austin, TX: 17 Things to See, Eat, and Do!

Why it’s a “Must See”: Austin is known for it’s artwork on the sides of buildings. Basically if it’s a blank wall, it’s free game. But seriously, haha! There is so much beautiful artwork flooding the city walls that makes Austin so unique. This one is by far the most iconic and has been made into postcards time and time again. Continue Reading

#NSale: Versatile Shift Dress…

I’m finally getting all of my Nordstrom purchases in that I had to order online, and I’m seriously loving everything! I keep going back to add more to my cart…it’s dangerous having the app on your phone! Haha! This black shift dress is one of my favorite purchases. It does run big, so I would size down! I’m wearing an XS for reference. I bought this dress in burgundy and lilac floral print also! It’s one of those dresses that will be SO easy to transition into fall! I can’t wait to wear it with these tan suede OTK boots I purchased from the sale. I got these boots in black also, and it’s definitely in my top 3 favorite things I snagged in the sale! I previously had an issue with my suede boots stretching out in the thigh as I wore them, so they weren’t as flattering as when I first got them. These boots lace up in the back though, so that won’t ever be an issue! I was also super excited they were under $100, because OTK boots can definitely get up there in price. Boot weather is so short in Texas, so buying crazy expensive boots is just a hard pill to swallow for me!

I also wanted to share this gorgeous turquoise magnesite necklace I recently purchased! It’s similar to this one I’ve worn constantly lately, but it’s half the price! I know a lot of you were deterred by Continue Reading

It’s crazy how fast items are selling out this year in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wanted to share my favorite dresses from the sale before those were gone too! I will be blogging several of these dresses over the next couple weeks, but I’m not sure if they will still be available by then!

Note: You must be a card holder to access the sale early. It opens to the public on the 22nd, but a lot of popular items will sell out by then, so I definitely recommend Continue Reading

In other news (since I’m sure Nordstrom has been flooding your feed the past couple days), I wanted to share this adorable summer skirt! This would be the perfect beach vacay outfit to wear to dinner! I actually own this watercolor maxi skirt in several colors, but for some reason this color was shorter than the others! I decided to pull it up a little higher and wear it as a midi skirt instead, which I actually really Continue Reading
