Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Friday Finds

TOPSHOP Moon Suede Biker Jacket

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to all Nordstrom cardholders, so I rounded up my picks by category for this edition of Friday Finds for early shoppers (if you don’t have one you can shop on 8/19.) The best deals during this sale are on fall wardrobe staples, classic items, and beauty and baby goods that typically aren’t marked down. For example, the best infant car seat which I used for all three of my children is included, as…

3 Best Underwear

I intended on publishing this on National Underwear Day last week, but we were hit with a hurricane and lost power and WiFi for a week. One of my best friends was visiting me from Portland, so we turned lemons into shandy and used our off the grid time to reconnect and read books like true pilgrims. We finally got power today, so I’m back, and figured I should go ahead and toast the holiday that was. Better late than…

10 Best Swimwear Coverups

10 Best Swimwear Coverups

Part of my love for resort wear is deeply rooted in my distaste for being uncomfortable in high temps. Whenever I’m enjoying downtime and it’s hot out, I’m usually wearing a coverup even if I’m not swimming or going to the beach. Case in point: I was actually on my way to dinner in this pic. There is no better way to beat the heat and boost your mood like throwing on the ultimate resort wear staple. Summer for me…

The Best Fourth Of July Sales To Shop Online

Yumi Kim Tea Time Wrap Dress

I’m ready for some classic summer family time and pretending for a few minutes that it doesn’t feel like the world is ending. My first baby turns FIVE on Saturday, and I cannot believe it. All he asked for is a giant batman cake, a Maui costume and wig, and to the see fireworks. Since all of the local fireworks are cancelled, we might be entering new pyrotechnic territories this weekend. If I can still use my opposable thumbs, I…

10 Best Pride Styles

wildfox where am I tee

Before I left the house this morning, my husband said, “are you coming from the village?” I immediately thought he was making a reference to Pride, the birthplace of the Stonewall Protest, since we lived there for nearly a decade together. I was dressed as a walking rainbow. Turns out, he was actually poking fun at my voluminous sleeves, but I took it as a compliment. Here is the dress in question:…

The Most Comfortable Mask

Lauren Moshi Vira X Spray Kiss Mask

I know there is a bit of controversy around wearing masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19, but I am 100% on board with doing whatever I can personally to aid in flattening the curve as much as possible. Where I live, we are not permitted to enter most public spaces (the few that have reopened) without wearing one. I will admit that most masks I have tried are uncomfortable, I cannot even begin to fathom what it is…

10 Best Ear Cuffs

360 Cashmere Willa Skull Intarsia Wool Cashmere Cardigan

It’s officially peak mutiny in my house, and I’m going to have the scars to prove it. After taking a metal Matchbox Wonder Woman car (the irony) to my cartilage courtesy of my toddler, I’m stitched up and fine but permanently cosmetically scathed. A stylish friend suggested I start searching for an ear cuff, and now I feel like I need one even if I come out on the other side of this without a keloid. Here are the 10…

10 Best Modcloth Swimsuits On Sale Now

Eberjey Summer of Love Cover Up Dress

One of my best online orders of the entire season last summer was a few swimsuits from Modcloth. I was just a couple weeks post partum when it dawned on me that my suits had seen better days, and I dreaded trying on swimwear after having my third baby. I bought several thinking I would like one or two and return the rest. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I loved them all. They are well made, flattering,…
