Off-Shoulder Floral Dress

I spent this past weekend down the Cape for a beautiful wedding celebration for one of my college girlfriends. The forecast wasn’t looking great, but the wedding day was perfect – not too hot and also not raining. The next day we had a party on the beach and while the sun wasn’t out, it was fun to have some drinks on the beach in sweatshirts anyway.

Cape Cod Wedding Ceremony

We only have three weddings this year, two of which are this month, and admittedly I was late to the game with picking out something to wear. I picked out a few options on Rent the Runway but decided to take a look at a few other stores before making a decision. Last year, I found a dress I loved on ASOS from a brand called boohoo. I realized they have their own site – oftentimes with 50% off like they do now – with lots of dress inexpensive dress options and free returns.

I looked through the options and ordered two on a whim for $25 each – and luckily, I ended up loving one of them! I got so many compliments on this off-shoulder floral dress and it was so comfortable because of the stretchy material and the fact that it wasn’t tight on my stomach (I like to eat, drink and dance at weddings!). Note that I’m usually a 2 or 4 but the smallest size available was a 6. I went with it and while I probably could have gone a size down, because of the stretchy material, I had no problem with the fit.

Shop this dress using the links below and scroll down all the way for even more dress picks from boohoo. With the entire site 50% off, now is the time to try them out! And I’d love to hear your favorite places to buy dresses to wear to weddings – leave them in the comments!

Sunday Sale Finds – Last Day of the Nordstrom Sale!

Confession… I’ve been a little MIA on the blog the past couple of weeks because I had strep throat, then I was off to Ireland on vacation for a week, followed by a work trip to LA and a wedding weekend away. I’m back now and feeling like summer is flying by! The past month has been so busy with mainly good things, but I hate the thought of summer coming to an end.

Anyway, in the midst of my crazy schedule, I made time to shop the big Nordstrom sale, and I’ll admit that I placed a few different orders (so easy with free shipping, free returns!). Today is the last day to stock up on both summer and fall items before prices go back up – and there’s still lots of great pieces to choose from! Shop my picks below using the links. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

#NSale Finds on

1. My go-to makeup set from bareMinerals that I purchased around the holidays is back for this sale and this time it includes a fun makeup carry case too.

2. Lash enhancing serum that I’ve heard really works! Can’t wait to try it out – this set comes with a full and travel size and is about 40% off.

3. These are the best smelling candles that also make for pretty decor around the house. The sets of three are less than $16 (here and here) and also make for great gifts. They also come in full-size sets of three, which are under $30.

4. Love this tortoise and gold watch – it will go with so many outfits and is less than $50!

5. Booties that I can tell will become everyday wardrobe staples. They come in black, grey, taupe and wine leather colors – might need to pick up another!

6. The perfect leggings that also don’t break the bank. I have these already and just picked up another pair while they’re on sale for just $34. The quality is great, which is clear from the crazy amount of positive reviews on the site.

7. I’ve heard great things about NuFACE products and right now you can get their facial toning device for $50 off. I haven’t pulled the trigger on this yet but really want to try one out so might have to soon!

8. A good leather jacket is a must for fall and this one comes in black and grey and has a nice relaxed shape to it. Plus it’s more than $100 off during the sale.

9. Kendra Scott everything, please. This necklace and bracelet both come in a bunch of colors – and this sale has lots of other jewelry to choose from.

10. A bucket bag that’s the perfect size for everyday use. It comes in black and tan and is more than $100 off!

Friday Faves {May 22, 2015}

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Hope your weekends are filled with sunshine, friends and family, food and drinks and relaxation. Today is one of my favorite days of the year because it’s the start of summer Fridays at work, which means summer is almost here, even if the temps aren’t feeling that way yet. To kick off the long weekend, I’m sharing my Friday Faves… and then I’m heading to catch up with my best girlfriends from high school – can’t wait!

Friday Faves on

1. Friendship in your late 20s, early 30s. I came across this post and felt like it was describing my friendships these days. Quick summary: You make your best friends before or during college, you’re with them all the time and friendship, put simply, is easy. You graduate, your friends move here and there for jobs or guys, you all start getting hitched, and then, before you know it, babies are on the way. Whether my girlfriends and I are busy with grad school or we’re a few time zones away from each other, the reality is we can’t see each other as often as we’d like.

But as this post puts it, “scarcity makes time spent with friends even more valuable — a treat I write delightedly into my calendar in hot pink pen so that it stands out among the staffings and the errands,” and we get to look forward to the weddings or our girls weekends where we are all reunited. And I’m sure that it will all come full circle, because “in another ten years, the babies will be older, the marriages will mature, and our friendships will be better nurtured by the increased time and energy we have to give them.” We’ll be getting old together, saying cheers over our favorite Pinot Grigio. {via}

2. Strike a pose. Learn how to work your angles and makeup to easily look better in photos. This post takes you through all of the steps, from using a primer to playing up your best features, and also recommends products to try out. {via}

3. She shed = life goal. Um, I need one of these. I’ll wait ’til the day comes that we move to the ‘burbs, but if she sheds are really a thing, count me in. It’s described as “an anti-man cave, usually decked out in string lights and a comfy couch.” Perfection. {via}

4. Half yearly sales. Especially when they’re at Nordstrom, which very rarely offers sales worth mentioning. Get up to 40% off lots of items now through May 31. I’m shopping this sale tonight and so far I have my eyes on these espadrilles and this watch and bag, which also comes in tan and yellow. {}

Spring Sales & Mother’s Day Style {Shop the Post}

There have been so many great spring sales these past few weeks that I couldn’t resist picking up a few new outfits for spring. Today’s outfit is inspired by my Mother’s Day look – I wore this blue tank that I picked up on sale plus 40% off! It’s nice and airy, comes in a pretty blue and coral, and was perfect for the 90 degree day that Sunday ended up being. I actually paired it with these navy shorts (under $20 now!) because it was so hot out, but as soon as I pick up a new pair of white jeans I’ll be wearing this look, especially to work. Shop the post with the links below (p.s. everything is on sale!).
