A Spritz and a Sale

We are in the height of summer, and I'm loving every second of it! These summer weekends are the best aren't they? In-between fun events, I've been spending as much time as possible in the pool and lil' miss is sharpening up her swimming skills post lessons which makes me so proud. She's definitely my little fishy!

I was excited when Rita's reached out to me to send over a care package full of goodies to help celebrate summer. I remember not being a huge fan of the Bud Light Lime-a-Rita's in the past because they were super sweet, but their new Rita's Spritz line is much more my style. And how fun is that round beach towel and cute crop top? I haven't rocked a crop top since freshman year of college, but it was the perfect tee to lounge by the pool in.

I struggled for a while, and went back and forth A LOT about whether I even wanted to share my picks from the infamous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I have honestly been grossed out watching InstaStories this past week and seeing people act like it's something to brag about to walk out of the store with bags and bags of stuff and show off a receipt similar to CVS (no easy feat!). It's not #goals - at all. Plus I can't get over how summer just started, and all these girls are sweating it out trying on fall fashion that no one even in the colder areas can possibly wear for another 3-5 months. 

However, outside of our blogging bubble no one seems to even know there is a huge sale going on. So, for my readers who haven't been over saturated with the same content over and over (and over!) and would be happy to see affordable items from the sale including some wear now pieces - voila! Every single item I'm sharing is under $100, and a lot are between $12 and $35

On a side note - the sale is currently only open to those with a Nordstrom card (I have the debit card which is linked to my checking account - you do NOT need to open up a store credit card), but will be open to everyone this Friday - July 19th. 

My Fav Picks

  • This casual tee comes in 5 colors and is only $11.90
  • These ankle booties had me at waterproof - especially in the sudden Florida afternoon downpours. 
  • I can't get enough bright colors lately, and this lightweight sweater is everything! I want it in green and yellow! Help me decide! 
  • I'm so flingin' flangin' excited denim skirts are making a comeback, and this one pairs great with sandals now or a pair of boots when the fall air moves in. 
  • Did someone say Kate Spade earrings for less than $25? 
  • I live in faux leather leggings in the cooler months - and these are guaranteed to sell out quick so act fast! 
  • This top can take you from the office to cocktails, and is perfect for the summer heat or layered under a cardigan. 
  • Zella can do no wrong (and neither can the athleisure trend, which better be here to stay) so I'm loving the color of these leggings. Did I just leave a barre class or come back from a Target run? The world will never know!

  12. A new spritz - yes please! I will definitely try to find them the next time im at the store! Those pink pants are so cute - I cant wait to shop the sale! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  13. So thankful to see that I'm not alone with my feelings on the Nordstrom sale. I cannot stand the amount of Stories and posts that are dedicated on Insta to this one sale! And to make it worse...it's a known fact that a lot of the Bloggers here in Orange County just purchase the stuff, photograph it with tags still on, and then return IT ALL. And it totally disgusts me. That is NOT what we as Bloggers should be doing. Promoting a false reality is also beyond disgusting. Sorry for my rant!!! :) XO



  14. I always love when the NSale pops up because it lets me know that fall isn't too far off! It has me excited for all of the cozy tops and boots! I'm starting to get tired of the heat. It's been especially hot and humid here this summer.

  15. You look super cute in this crop top. Loved your picks. Happy Tuesday ! xx


  16. Ahhh, that cropped tee is so cute, sis!
