Day Heels in Red // Georgette Top (I got a size 38 a US6, one size bigger than usual bc they were almost sold out but I liked how flowy it was) // Jeans // Sunglasses (20% off!)// Turquoise earrings // Simillar Chloe Bag

Nearly four thousand reviews do not lie. These Day Heels are 5 star: comfy, buttery soft, and chic. And just when I thought that wasn’t possible!

The elasticized back allows movement and no blisters. I’ve worn these for hours and no blisters. I always want a heel without pain. Especially on days I am mostly on my feet or running to meetings on the west side.

Here I styled the red day heel with a leopard billowy top, skinny jeans, and small Chloe Faye bag for date night but stay tuned as I’m not done with these babies yet.

How would you style the red day heels?

red square neck jumpsuit (I’m wearing a size 4) // heels both in nude and black // earrings // scarf // sunglasses // denim jacket // faux leather jacket (real leather option for 20% off)

It’s time to simplify your wardrobe and a jumpsuit is the first step. Besides the fact that it is ONE AND DONE, it can be dressed up or down. I wear it here with a leather jacket and denim jacket. I added some print with a fun scarf. Which way is your favorite?

Two Ways to Wear a Scarf

  1. In your hair: tie it in a bow around your hair tie

2. Fold in half, tie under your hair and secure with bobby pins.

My friend Marcia demonstrates a good video on scarf tying. How do you like to wear a scarf?

10 Under $100

by Shalice Noel

1.Blazer dress 2.$98 white dress 3. Tunic 4. Peasant top 5. White bodysuit 6. Strappy sandals 7. $52 jeans 8. Camel tank 9. LBD 10. Towel

I scoured the internet to find you 10 items under $100. August is a great time to pick up Christmas gifts, a gift for yourself, or replace a worn out basic. All these items above can be styled together for a travel capsule wardrobe. For example, wear this LBD with these strappy sandals for a date night out. Tip: roll your items in your suitcase, don’t fold, for creaseless traveling.

Hope you find something you love. I’m off to go workout and run a bunch of non-glamorous errands like a trip to the post office.

Happy August!

A grandma at church stopped me and asked me what my work at home tips are for her daughter in law working from home for the first time with an infant. Well, here they are. There is no reason to be nervous, you just need tools to succeed. Here’s my tips on this post

The one hat you need is not only foldable but also packable and perfect for your beach vacation!

Already thinking back to school? My favorite is the energy ball recipe. YUM. Here’s 11 back to school mom hacks!

This is the peel I’m loving. You can use it on your hands or face. I love seeing the dead skin come off! That’s how you get the glow girl!

Have you tried my couple’s workout? It can also be done alone.

What is still available on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? These pj’s that I buy every year, boots I’ve worn a ton, and Nikes under $75. How cute are these boots? Not on the NSALE, but cute nonetheless with jeans and a sweater. Can you tell, I LOVE fall fashion?

Curious what I bought from Amazon this week? See my page.

I’m making another batch of almond flour blueberry muffins, have you tried them? I make them the night before for breakfast the next morning. I also taught my eldest how to make them and they are SO good!

Hope you have a great Friday! We’re hoping to get our first beach day in tomorrow. We shall see. As always, my shop page is open 24/7, and you can email me directly: Have a great weekend!

Friday Notes

by Shalice Noel

leopard top // sneakers // camisole ($25!) // faux leather leggings // bag

These pink birkenstock like sandals are back in stock!

This is the book we’ve been reading to the kids at night. The stories are so inspirational and encourage great conversation.

Do I use mascara primer, and should you use it too? Yes! Ever since I stopped getting lash extensions, I’ve been using lash boosters, taking biotin and collagen (to grow hair) and trying to get my lashes to look longer. I tell you, it’s hard being a girl sometimes.

I have $100 gift card from Nordstrom, how should I use it? See below some goodies I rounded up from the NSALE. My advice is, stock up on neutral layers that will stand the test of time and many trends. For example, a cute trench coat.

I’ve been making TWIX bars all week, just ask my kids. We ate them till our stomach hurt. GFDF! Now, I can’t wait to make these paleo pancakes. YUM!

My best friend is in Paris, I can’t help but wish I was there with her, booking the next table at the amazing cafe: Les Deux Margots.

I love this jelly peel. It literally makes your dead skin come off!

I’m day 3 using Biotin gummies for hair. So yum. Now, I need to hide them from Reid.

This is the color safe shampoo and conditioner I’ve been loving

Have you tried makeup melt? It’s clean beauty and so good. That’s it for now. The kids have VBS this weekend, yay! As for me, I’ll be running around DTLA beating the heat in a lightweight nursing friendly dress working on a fun project to come. What are you up to?

Step 1, This Trench

We were in NY this summer and I saw a girl wearing this gorgeous trench. Talk about travel as inspiration. And many of you know already how much I love streetstyle in big cities like New York. Like a good stylist, I went online right away looking for the perfect “distressed” and worn denim trench.Just like the one I saw on the chic girl in SOHO. I’m happy to report I found it. However kicking myself for taking so long to post these images that the before mentioned trench is sold out. I however did find one similar for you. I love it paired with denim shorts and cowboy boots or white denim and a white crop top. Either works for a chic on the go look. Which is your favorite?

There are still items on the NSALE available. These booties and blazer make the black ruffle shorts and tank look chic and pulled together. Who doesn’t need a couple pieces that can complete the basics in your closet? I know I do. PS. The spanx legging is back in stock!

Hope you have a lovely Tuesday!

The day is finally HERE. The first day of early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I’m so excited I could pee in my pants. I love getting a sneak peek of fall offerings at discount. Makes me want to go on a big trip somewhere cold wearing all my fall clothes. Or perhaps you live in a cold area and dying to get your hands on some stylish layers. Or perhaps you’re looking for teacher and Christmas gifts. Keep scrolling and I think you will find something for everyone. I hope you are a Nordstrom Card holder and can enjoy shopping the sale early because things SELL OUT FAST. Apply for the card HERE. It helps to have first dibs on items you know will fly. Let me know which are your favorites!


Don’t miss this drapey jacket in white, this camel coat, and this classic in gray.


(Don’t miss the iconic leopard cardigan and super soft fleece that sells out every year!)

This cardigan is $45, lightweight and comes in a bunch of colors!


Love these tall pointy toe boots and these short booties. The secret is in the flattering pointy toe and ankle cut.



(Loving these 3 versatile skirts from the sale: suede, leopard skirt, and black satin)


ear jackets shown in gold // gold bar pendant // tunic in xs



I’m loving the LBD’s and leopard dresses this year.

Cozy, Cozy


(these dad jeans I got in my true size only $52! and Paige jeans are GREAT. Note that the lighter wash in the Paige jeans are only available online. Not in store. I learned that the hard way.)

(Reid picked out some items below!)


(So many cute little giraffe blankets, mini Patagonia coats, car seats and outfits)


(gimmie all the candles! These ones are on crazy sale, $22 for an Anthropologie candle!)


(I found two that I liked!) I ordered the adidas in white


(I use this caviar shampoo daily. It is one of the very few products my stylist allows me to wear that doesn’t hurt my color! Also, I’ve used this Neulash to help re-grow my lashes after the effects of lash extensions. Most of you already know, the majority of my make-up is Charlotte Tilbury pillowtalk. Easy to use because I’m a novice and flattering colors. I use the lipliner every day! See my posts on Charlotte Tilbury make-up here.

I hope you found some goodies. Don’t forget to comment and “like” on my instagram to win a $100 gift card to jump start your Nordstrom shopping experience. I also published these looks on the app for mobile users. Hope you have a lovely Friday! I really appreciate your support and thanks for stopping by!



My favorite sale of the year is here. Icon and Ambassadors get an early preview to shop today at 9:30 PST and 12:30 EST. This year is a big selection I must say. Lots of goodies. But honestly, I’m most excited about the boots.

Since they did things differently this year, allowing the Icon and Ambassador levels to shop first, THINGS WILL SELL OUT FASTER THAN USUAL. Which takes me to my first tip:

  1. BUY NOW, RETURN LATER. If you’re on the fence about size or color, my advice would be to buy it (if available) and return one if necessary. It’s more important you get the item, right?
  2. GET THE CARD. Are you a Nordstrom Card holder? I’m NOT a fan of having multiple credit cards, but I got this one 2 years ago just for this sale. I never keep a balance and only use it for this sale. What I’m trying to say, is, it is worth it. And I get multiple $20 notes in the mail because I spend so much during this sale for you girls. Sorry Reid.

I’m loving these pj’s, this bag, and super soft pullover for colder areas that always sells out. I would size up for a roomier fit. I also picked up these ear crawler earrings in gold and this gold bar pendant for $52.

Here’s a sneak peek of what I got from the sale yesterday. I have 5 bags and I had to have curbside pick up to help me get everything in my car. Phew, that was a workout!

Below are some outfit ideas for my 9 to 5 girls. Many of you working girls asked for outfit ideas.

pants // tank // faux leather jacket for $62!// similar mules // pleated skirt // vince cut out bootie // leopard cardigan // black jeans (I’m wearing a 2) // CZ earrings

taupe booties for $79// black jeans // $20 tank

Here is last year’s NSale post. I also love this candle set as a gift to the kids teachers! Ask me any questions in the comments or email me any questions. This is a great week to stock up on Christmas, hostess and birthday gifts!

Every year I think QUALITY over QUANTITY. We don’t need more stuff, we need to shop smarter. I don’t always pick the cheapest things, but I will choose the investment buys and smart buys. Trust me, you will thank me in the long run!
