Nordstrom Sale – Work Wear Under $100

Nordstrom Sale – Work Wear Under $100

I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that all the bloggers in the world are sharing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Well y’all. I work. And I’m on a budget. My hot water heater busted, making a mess and costing an arm and a leg. AND I just bought tickets to go see my son and his family in Denver. I’m kind of bleeding money over here. So let’s just say that I will be extremely careful during this year’s sale. I’m going to feature a few pieces that are classic work wear, and are ALL under $100!

And here we are 36 years later…how in the world did we manage to actually make it work? Continue reading “Our Secrets for a Happy Marriage”

July Mother/Daughter Stitch Fix Reveal

My daughter and the grands came over to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, so she and I decided it would be the perfect chance for us to do another fun Mother/Daughter Stitch Fix reveal! So I quickly sent a note to my stylist, letting her know what we wanted to do. Happily, our Fix arrived just in time! So in between swimming and eating and napping and chasing toddlers and a few hissy fits (not me, I promise) we squeezed in a little photoshoot of our Stitch Fix Reveal. We had an absolute blast trying on everything, and her daughter even got in on the action, as you’ll see below.  Continue reading “July Mother/Daughter Stitch Fix Reveal”
