Recent LOFT haul!

Do you have LOFT CASH to use up? The period to use it is from Sept 7th - Sept 26th. You’ll save $20 off every $50 full price purchase. If you don’t have LOFT CASH, no worries. Many of these items have promos on them!

I recently placed an order from LOFT that did not get run over (long story but WHY must my packages continue to get left behind my garage door?!). LOL! LOFT always does a great job with their sweater and cardigan selection and this year is no different. I also snagged an amazing pair of jeans from them this year! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! They are a high rise button front jean that are SO FLATTERING! All the details and links to shop coming your way!

First look includes a gorgeous poncho type sweater. These have been selling out and restocking so grab one if your size is available because you don’t want to lose your chance to own it this Fall! I bought this in a few colors last year and was so happy to see this camel color! Great with jeans or black leggings and tall boots! If you love leopard, but just want a pop of it, I highly recommend this handbag from JCREW! Right now you can save 30% off of it, with code “SHOPNOW”.


Poncho Sweater (TTS in a M)

Long Sleeve Tee (I sized up one to an L for a more relaxed fit but I’d say this is TTS.)

High Rise Jeans (TTS in a 10)

Leopard handbag

Booties (TTS)

Next up is a beautiful lightweight open poncho cardigan! I love the color! It is so FALL! And so easy to pair back to black or white! Did I mention my booties are waterproof and currently on sale? Such a great heel height too. My Kendra Scott necklace is on wicked sale at the moment at Nordstrom Rack so snag one before they are gone for good!

High Rise Jeans (TTS in a 10)

Booties (TTS)

Necklace (this is the same style but the gold is a bit more antiqued)

Last look includes another open cardigan. This one fit me a little big but I loved the length on it as it covered my booty! Perfect idea over leggings! I also think this one would be a nice wear to work option over a blouse with a pair of skinny pants.


Open Cardigan (Runs big. I’m in the M/L with plenty of room. I’d definitely size down if in between.)

I hope you enjoyed my recent haul and are getting excited for Fall weather! I know that many of you are still in warmer weather right now which is why I really like these lightweight cardigan options! They aren’t too heavy or bulky! Perfect now or go forward! I hope you enjoy your weekend! ~Liz

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Roundup!


The SALE that everyone’s been talking about on social media is ON…are you sick of it yet?! LOL! I hope not! Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is LIVE for Nordstrom Cardholders starting Friday July 12th! If you are not a cardholder…no worries…you can start shopping on July 19th. The sale ends on August 4th! The best thing about this sale is you get a discount on NEW FALL merchandise. It’s an opportunity to get a deal on a new pair of designer jeans, a handbag, or an amazing pair of riding boots or booties! Prices will all go up on August 5th. Thing I love most about Nordstrom - FREE SHIPPING AND RETURNS ON EVERY ORDER! Many sale items go in and out of stock so be sure to check back frequently for your size and color choice because it will likely be BACK!

Now let’s get to the FUN STUFF! I stopped into the store for a try on session and these were some of my favorites! I am also going to be adding to this post as my online orders arrive so be sure to check back throughout the sale period! As a reminder…I am typically a Size M in tops, size 8/10 in bottoms and I am 5’7” tall.

This jacket is my pick of the sale! It is from the brand Thread and Supply who is known for that amazing soft wubbly fleece. Well they added to their line this year with this amazing jacket which has the soft fleece inside. It is also available in an olive green as well. (This fit TTS. I am in a M here and like the way it fit in the body (a bit more fitted). The sleeves were on the shorter side so I flipped back the cuff. The L was a bit more generous in the body but would better accommodate a heavier sweater underneath. The L had a longer sleeve length which was nice. ) Thread and Supply Jacket


Next up is a blogger favorite of the sale! This SOFT leopard cardigan! I love that you add some spunk to any outfit just by throwing it over a basic top! The black cami is also part of the sale and the two of these make a great combo! (I’d say TTS or size up if in between in both for a more relaxed fit. The tank has no give so I preferred the roomier L.) BP Leopard Cardigan and the BP Lace Cami . P.S. my jeans here are not part of the sale, but they are pretty fabulous and flatter the leg. Size down if in between. I’m in a 29/8. Articles of Society Jeans


Next up are two lightweight jacket options. The pretty parchment colored one on the left is gorgeous and also comes in a brown option. I am TTS in an L (which is a 10-12 based on their size chart). BB Dakota faux leather moto jacket. The olive green drapey boucle trench on the right has some slight military details which gives it some edge. I am also TTS in an L (which is a 10-12 based on their size chart). BB Dakota Drapey Trench


Let’s talk amazing JEANS for a moment! I have two picks! One that is a bit of a splurge from Good American Jeans. . This is the pair I am wearing here. Here’s the deal. I have no booty. Like for real. Haha! It’s flat. I put these amazing jeans on and I was floored by the shape it gave me in the “back”. Plus they slimmed my legs out! Win win!! They are called Good Leg jeans for a reason ladies! Worth the splurge for these babies. I was TTS in a 10. Good American Good Leg Jeans. My other top choice for a non distressed pair of jeans are these two from the brand Wit & Wisdom. Their jeans are called Ab-solution and are not only super comfy but slim your tummy and are great for people who end up with that gaping at the back of their jeans. Wit and Wisdom High Waist jeans and Wit and Wisdom Skinny Jeans. I am TTS in a 10. This snap tunic sweater was so comfy and ran a little big so I’d size down if in between. I’m in a M here. Caslon tunic sweater


There were so many amazing cardigans and jackets this year and these two topped my list. The colorblock one on the left from Madewell will likely sell out! It has been so popular in the blogger world so snag one if you want to add it to your closet. It fit me TTS M, but size down if in between or if you want it less relaxed looking. Madewell Cardigan Sweater . The one on the right is just a great basic and is available in a bunch of colors. It also fits TTS M, size down if in between. Halogen Cardigan


Up next are two casual hooded pullovers! I like to feel roomy in tops like these and I sized up to L in both. The one from Nike is super comfy and will look great with some leggings or joggers. Nike Hoodie . The one on the right is from North Face and I love the extra details on this one!! The North Face Fleece Hoodie


Next up are two North Face Parkas! I sized up to an L in both! I love the quilted one so much! One of my favorite details is that the fabric is matte not shiny at all. North Face Metro Parka . The Olive green parka is an everyday waterproof option and available in other colors as well. North Face Ancha Parka


More shoe finds of the sale coming your way! These Vince Camuto cutout sandal will go fast! Perfect to wear now and into early Fall. The studded Steve Madden flats come in a few color combos and have been very popular this sale. They keep coming in and out of stock so keep an eye on them as your size will likely come back! Two of my Ugg pics from the sale are these babies! The casual Ugg bootie is down to less than $100 and are so great for easy on and off all winter. And this is the time to pick up a new pair of UGG slippers at a deal!


Up next are these Madewell Spotted Mules. These were TTS for me and are going to go with so much! Even a great wear to work shoe too! They also come in solids too. Madewell Mules Solid .


Without fail, Nordstrom always brings a fabulous boot from Born to their NSALE! This year did not disappoint with these!! If you are looking for an everyday pair of boots, these are them! I have pairs from their last two years and they still look amazing! They fit TTS. Born Boots


Last year I took advantage and picked up an almost identical Tory Burch Crossbody Bag. I wear mine all the time! I’m thinking about snagging this years in black! Highly recommend! Tory Burch Mini Everly Bag

Is it bad that I am wishing Fall upon us because I just want to wear this athleisure outfit! This Nike Hoodie is soft and not too heavy. I sized up to an L. These black Zella joggers keep coming in and out of stock but keep an eye on them. I found them TTS in a M. I love the material. It’s kind of a dressy kind of feel, not too heavy or bulky. They are also available in Grey as well. Grey Zella Joggers .


Another few tops I paired with the above joggers is this Zella long sleeve tee. I’d say it runs TTS. I am in a L here but have plenty of room. Just a great basic! Also my tank is from Old Navy. Size down if inbetween as I am in a M and have room.


Cardigans were so big during this NSALE. And a popular trend was the leopard cardigan. Be sure to snag one during the sale! It really adds some fun to an otherwise basic outfit! I actually love both of these options! Which one is your fav? I should return one but we shall see. LOL! Leopard Cardigan on left is TTS M on me, but I would size down if in between. The Leopard Cardigan on right is TTS. I sized up one though to an L for a more relaxed fit. Also, my peep toe booties are a great option for Fall and for those in warmer climates. Best part is they are waterproof! They fit TTS.


In my opinion there wasn’t a ton of top options that I loved in the sale, but this one stood out. It’s a tunic length sweater with a blousey sleeve. It runs big so size down. I’m in a M but still have room. Great piece to wear with some skinnies and a tall boot or even as a work wear piece as well.


So....we did a thing. 15 year Anniversary Trip!

So....Stan and I...we did a thing. We took our first "big" trip together just the two of us to celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary! ❤️ Sure we've done an overnight or two away from the boys but we were always nearby. This time we headed to Cheeca Resort in Islamorada, Florida Keys. We had some well needed alone time to "reconnect" 😉, eat, drink, sleep late, go fishing, lay by the pool, and laugh our asses off. I’m gonna share some pics of our trip and some of my outfits that I wore! Hope you enjoy!

(FYI…this post is not sponsored by Cheeca…just saying.)

When we arrived and could see the ocean from the entrance door…we knew we had truly “ARRIVED”. You can scroll through a few pics of the resort. Our view from our lunch at Cheeca’s restaurant Atlantic’s Edge was an amazing start to our trip after a long day of travel. We literally could feel ourselves decompressing as we just sat and looked out. That pier I later did some fishing off of.

Now can we talk about our room for a minute….I mean our own outdoor tub with an amazing view!

We had some awesome dinners and drinks, relaxed, went fishing with a hungry pelican waiting for my catch, and fed some tarpons!

Now to share some of my favorite outfits of the trip!!
