So I’ll be real with you. As much as I hate to admit it, I am a procrastinator at heart. Always have been, I think it’s in my blood. This applies even when it comes to amazing sales – like the Nordstrom Anniversary sale that’s been going on. I held off up until now on all the amazing deals going on because I convinced myself I didn’t need anything. Well, when I saw there were only 3 days left of the sale, I caved. Some of these deals were just too good to pass up on! Like, some of these tops are less than $20 and I know I’ll get so much use out of them.
I rounded up for you some items that I put in my shopping cart today as well as a few others that are on my wishlist (that I’ll probably be ordering before Sunday). Happy shopping!
This summer I have developed a major love for anything and everything related to cacti: succulents, the cactus emoji…I just think they are so adorable. Because of my current cactus crush, I instantly fell in love with this cactus-print dress. Not only is the print bright and so summery, but you can actually wear it in this 100+ degree Texas heat and survive! I wore it to brunch on Saturday at Saint Ann in Dallas…and we ate outside!

Happy Friday eve ya’ll! So by now you probably know me well enough to know I am all about a deal, and saving money. I’ve always wanted to be a Chanel purse, Prada sunglasses type of girl, but that’s just not me. Maybe in my next life, but for now, I strive to be on trend and feel my best, without breaking the bank.
Today though, I want to talk about when you should choose quality for your wardrobe over quantity. Early on this summer I was on the hunt for white jeans. I tried on (no joke) at least 7 pair that were all around the $50 price range. I hated every single one. They didn’t fit right, or they were too ripped, or they were super thin and I knew I wouldn’t get more than 10 wears out of them.
I slightly felt like the heavens opened up when I tried on this pair of white jeans though. They are definitely more than what I usually spend on jeans, but the fit was perfect, the material felt like real quality, and I knew I’d be wearing them for summers to come.
And this top – let’s talk for a minute about Bella Dahl. I’m sure you’ve seen some of Lo’s posts about them – but we are both obsessed. The top I’m wearing here isn’t your typical denim top. Because it’s from Bella Dahl, the quality is truly amazing, and you would not believe how soft it is. BD is known for creating ultra-soft women’s essentials, with outstanding quality. Each and every item is hand-dyed, treated and quality controlled in Los Angeles, using only the finest materials.
Also, I got this entire look (top, jeans, and birks) from St. Bernard Sports! A few years back I always thought of this store when I needed new snowboarding gear or a Patagonia fleece. However, it has quickly become my one-stop-shop for anything and everything. They carry high end fashion lines, sporting goods, LAFCO candles, and literally anything your heart could desire. Make sure you check out my instagram to see how you could win a $100 giftcard to their store!

The amount of times I’ve worn this denim dress in the past few weeks is borderline embarrassing. But, no shame. I love how this dress is perfect for running errands, Sunday brunch, or date night. Dress it up with wedges or go for the Cali cool look with slides. I’m obsessed!
Like most girls in fashion, I enjoy following trends. This summer we’re obviously seeing a lot of tassels, off-the-shoulder, and little white dresses to name a few. I think following trends is fun, but you definitely don’t want your whole wardrobe to be made up of “trend” pieces. That would require you to buy a whole new wardrobe season after season, and let’s be real, who can really afford to do that?
One of the reasons I am in love with this little white dress is because it happens to both be on trend but also timeless. It’s classy and can be so easily dressed up or down – for date nights or summer picnics. It looks great with a denim jacket and you will get so much use out of it season after season.

This is one of those dresses that you throw on to run to the grocery store, return things to the mall, but could still wear it to a lunch date with a girl friend or a casual dinner with your man! I’m all about versatile pieces (especially when the price is this good!)
I’m also loving these three trapeze dresses from the No Rest For Bridget site!:
