Happy Friday, friends! This week seriously took it out of me, but thankfully as you’re reading this I am relaxing up north at my parents’ cottage in Michigan. I can’t wait for a weekend full of quality time with family, friends, and of course, the dogs! Follow along on the adventures on Instagram! (Do you follow me?!)
In addition to my weekend getaway, I’m planning on hunting through all of the incredible finds in the Nordstrom sale to help you score the best deals – but I also plan to share what I’m getting, how it fits, what I’m returning, and more!
Last year was the first time I really shopped the sale, and it did not disappoint. Virtually every single favorite item I wore throughout the fall and winter came from the sale. BUT I also know that many bloggers are also posting about it, so in case you’re not interested in the sale, I’m going to go ahead with regular posts too! If you do want to find all of my N-Sale details in one place, go to the toolbar at the top of the blog where it says “Nordstrom Sale Picks”! Instagram & stories are also where I’ll be sharing the majority of this info, so be sure to check there!
With that said…here are my essentials from this week!
One of my absolute favorite snaps from the cottage last year – with my little “shadow” Wrigley following my every move!
If you’ve been following along here for a while, you may have noticed that I’m a big fan of the website The Everygirl. It’s not something I read every day, but love to catch up on during lazy Sunday afternoons when I’m relaxing. They have such a great variety of content – and I love seeing their incredible office space! (I’m also a huge sucker for any sort of home decor tour).
I’ve honestly been avoiding this trend (sadly) because I was pretty convinced they were only flattering on more petite frames. I have a very long torso, and I wouldn’t say an excessively tiny waist, so it just seemed like something I’d rather skip. I was SO surprised when I tried this on in the store and it was super flattering! I got it in an XL in black to help make it longer, and it fits perfectly. It honestly makes me look more slender! I totally recommend it.
three | my new favorite skincare item
I mentioned this in a post earlier this week, but it felt worth mentioning again! I am in love with this body buff scrub from MorrocanOil. It has left my skin feeling softer and smoother than ever! A little bit goes a long way, so the jar will last you a long time if you use it right.
