My Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

It’s that time again! The best sale of the year! And there are a couple more days of early access before the sale is open to the public. What does this mean? If you have a Nordstrom card, you have early access to all of the hottest items before the general public does. If you do NOT have a Nordstrom card, you can start previewing the items you want and then you’ll be able to shop them after the 20th. Since there are thousands of items up for grabs, I’ve done the leg work for you! I spent hours and hours and literally browsed every single item, and here I’ve rounded up my very favorites by category!

The Items I LUV the MOST:

Handbags & Accessories:

Mules:

Boots & Other Shoes:

Woman’s Clothing:

Casual Tees:

Denim:

 

Fitness:

Jackets & Outerwear:

 

Beauty & Skincare:

Below I’ve styled a couple complete looks with some of my favorite items to show you how I would style these awesome pieces together. No matter how YOU style these items, I’d suggest stocking up on the great basics… tees, denim, boots, sunnies… and you’re sure to be able to make tons of great looks now and carrying you into the fall/winter months!

Shop this look:

Happy shopping to all you crazy kids! Follow along on my ig stories, and I’ll be giving you a little more detail about my favorite items, how I’d style pieces and what I really think you should grab quickly!

My Picks for the Nordstrom Half Yearly SALE

I went to the mall yesterday to scope out the sales and try to get an idea of what I think y’all will LUV this half-yearly sale… my local store did not have as great a selection on clothes this sale (sometimes the store can be harder to shop, because items are more randomly dispersed, and there are tons of people), but I did buy 3 pairs of shoes! (Don’t judge.) My husband got some great deals as well! So I hopped online and did a little more research and found tons of items I LUV and know you will too! Skip the crowds and lines, and shop my favs below! I believe all of these (or at least most) are currently 40% off (some designer pieces 33%)! I’m familiar with a good deal of these brands, so if you’ve got any questions… just ask! Happy shopping!

Shoes:

Clothes:

Accessories:

Girl’s clothes:

Boy’s clothes:

A Boho-Inspired, Cactus & Succulents-Themed Bridal Shower

My brother-in-law is getting married! And I had the pleasure of throwing a bridal shower for his BEAUTIFUL future bride. True to my LUV of simple cacti and succulents, deciding on a theme for the shower was super simple. Here’s a peek at what it looked like and how you can create the same look…

I bought the this blank hanging sign in the Target Dollar Spot and wrote a welcome note on it with a gold Sharpie. Then I just hung it in front of the wreath on my door. Welcome in…

Recreate this tablescape:

I got the Love Never Fails sign and the faux oranges at Hobby Lobby. (I also added some real tangerines to the tables.)

My Mother-in-law is the cakeboss in our family and she made this gorgeous cake creation. We added faux succulents to the top and put the cake on a turquoise cakestand.

The bride’s sister made this adorable tray of donut “rings”. 🙂

I bought this large serving bowl and made an easy salad in it of mixed greens, strawberries, sliced almonds and dried cranberries. Super easy and looks pretty! 🙂

I’m all about easy, so I bought premade chicken salad from Costco and added them to croissants. Easy peasy… just like I like. I threw them on this pretty turquoise and silver platter. The “Mr.” & “Mrs.” toothpicks were purchased at Target as well.

Shop some of these decorations and serving pieces:

Shop my dining room and kitchen tables/chairs:

   We had everyone write their best wishes and/or advice to the bride & groom. We got these sheets in the seasonal department, but here are some adorable advice coasters you could use for this.

We served sangria & mimosas and used pretty buckets for the bottles.

The bride’s sister put together a cute candy station for favors. (I linked some candy bags you could use in the carousel above, in this post.)

She also put together these cute prizes for some of the games we played.

My favorite item the bride was gifted (it was not from me) was this adorable hat with our last name. Not sure if this is the same one, but click the hyperlink, if you’re interested… I know I want one for myself! 🙂

The afternoon was perfect, filled with lots of love and happiness, and came together perfectly with a little teamwork. I’m so excited to have another sister, and I hope she enjoyed the day as much as I did. 🙂

Feel free to Pin any of the images you see, if you’d like to plan a similar party in the future. Hope you enjoyed! xxoo

Matching {Mommy & Me} Tutus & A Discount Code for You!

Last week, Emerson and I went to a darling Mom & Me Tea Party, hosted by Eventing Tampa Bay. When we registered for the event, I immediately went to hunting for the perfect matching “Mom & Me” ensembles. While perusing Instagram, I found a site that sells the most adorable tutus, including matching sets for moms & daughters called Tutu Moi. {Insert Carrie Bradshaw obsession.} Ummm… perfect!

I happen to believe every girl should have at least one tutu. You can style them with a bodysuit, button-up blouse, something flowy or just a simple tee or tank. Regardless of the top you wear, when you’re sporting a tutu, you’re instantly going to shine! If you’re wearing a simple top, chunky necklaces are also a great addition. I styled ours with some simple black bodysuits we already owned. (Em’s is actually her ballet leotard.)

Scroll to the bottom of this post for a discount code to save 15% on the tutu(s) of your choice!

There are few things that make me happier than matching my mini, but this tutu is great whether you’re matching your little or not. Tutus are wonderful options for day or evening. When you have a bridal or baby shower, wedding or those holidays parties role around, a tutu is always an option you can style in new ways over & over. Hence, why every gal should have a tutu in her wardrobe. (Told you.)

The detail on the back of this tutu is absolutely gorgeous, embellished with a beautiful, antique-looking pearl brooch. And the oodles and oodles of layers of tulle make the skirt extra full and fluffy.

Whatever the wardrobe question, a tutu is the answer. Tutu Moi has been kind enough to offer my followers 15% off anything in their store! Use code LUVBEC15 for 15% off your order! Tell them Luv, Bec sent you! Happy shopping! 🙂

The Perfect One-Piece Swimsuit and Cover-up (and Other Styles I LUV)

Last week, we spent a few days at our favorite little island in Boca Grande. When we’re there, we basically live in swimsuits and cover-ups, so before our trip, I got to hunting on some new styles to pack. This lace cover-up sold out quickly but appears it is restocked, so grab it quick! Before I could even post this, my swimsuit sold out, but here’s one from the same store that is super similar and selling out quickly as well, so hurry, hurry! Scroll to the bottom of this post to see some of my other favorite styles!

Some Sunglasses I {Currently} LUV…

When it comes to sunglasses, I’m kind of excessive. I certainly don’t believe sunglasses have to be expensive or designer to be cute and on trend. BUT… I do LUV me some sunnies, so I tend to buy more frequently than is probably necessary. So in that sense, I kind of consider myself a connoisseur of trendy sunnies. I’ve linked below some of my favorite shades of the moment. You’ll see there are some splurges and several under $15-20! Whatever your budget, I have something for all of you. There are even a few links scattered in there for designer shades at a fraction of the price. Happy shopping! (Photographed below I’m wearing my favorite sunnies this season. They go with EVERYTHING and are linked first.)

 

*Disclaimer: Some of the product links on this site are affiliate links. That means that if you purchase something from these links Luv, Bec receives a commission. I hope you trust that I would never let that get in the way of sharing my favorite products with you. (I even own many of these styles myself.) Thank you again for reading and hope you enjoy!
