Hey there, Monday! After Friday’s post where I talked about purchasing cold weather clothing, I’m back with a very summery outfit post because after all, it’s still very much summer! Ha! Summer is my absolute favorite season, and the time of year where I definitely adapt to ‘less is more’. It’s also the time of year where I could wear a form of gingham print every single day, so let’s chat about both of these things, shall we?!
Whether you can believe it or not, ’tis the season! And no, it’s not quite Christmas yet. But it kinda feels like it because the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Early Access) has begun and its all the buzz. If you follow fashion bloggers, you’re likely to be well aware of this! As I scrolled through Instagram yesterday, I saw post after post about the sale. Though I wasn’t surprised, I also was a little overwhelmed. I couldn’t believe how many bloggers of all sizes of followings were posting about the sale, and I really didn’t think I needed to be one more blogger to add to the mix.
Not only did I think I wouldn’t blog about the topic because I didn’t want add to the excess, but I also have a few reasons why I’m not quite as interested in this sale this year. But I had a little gut feeling that y’all as followers may want to know more about those reasons, so I decided to reach out about the topic on Instagram Stories. Well, y’all wanted to know my thoughts! And I’m so honored and grateful that you trust me enough to want to listen to my honest feedback! So I hustled to scour the Nordstrom site and get this post live for y’all before you approach shopping this annual sale!
Aloha! My oh my, life been busy lately! I often dislike using the word ‘busy’, as our society loves to use it as an answer to the question ‘how are you?’, buuuut gosh… things really have been, well… busy! Since my last post, I’ve been in a dear friend’s wedding in Sonoma County, been working lots (nannying), and been working a lot on trying to figure out details on what’s to come for us the next few months! Phew! Let’s catch up a bit, shall we?!
It’s Good Friday, and to be honest… I was a bit torn whether or not to share about a dress today. My heart has felt heavy all week with how commercialized Easter is – the focus solely on a bunny rather than The Lamb. And it’s not that I don’t love the fun spring aspects that go into this weekend, but I just am so deeply rooted to the true meaning behind Easter. After all, the true meaning of Easter is what I live my life entirely for! But I think the healthy balance that I strive for on this blog always includes both faith and the fun, and that mix is what I wanted to share here today!
I’m baaaaaaaaack! After writing my last post, I felt a sense of relief, but I definitely still felt overwhelmed by blogging. Often when I’m overwhelmed by something that doesn’t need critical attention, the best thing I can do is to take a short break from whatever it is that is causing me to unnecessarily stress. Sometimes after simply just giving something a brief rest, I can then re-approach it with a fresh perspective. So, I didn’t blog last week! But I’m back today and excited to share an outfit I’m loving lately and a few other things that are happening in my life lately!
Happy Friday! Today’s post is little bit outfit deets, a little bit of what’s on my radar lately, and a healthy dose of #realtalk! Let’s just dive in, shall we?!

For a girl who was previously gun-shy about wearing yellow, you’d probably never know it. After this post, the internet was far too kind to me in support of the look and I realized…perhaps yellow is a color my wardrobe has been missing out on all these years?! So when I needed a little floral print to start to making its way into my wardrobe to transition into spring looks, this Old Navy gem caught my eye. And would you guess what…
