The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in 3 days for card holders. Do you have the card?
Get the card. Get a $60 note.
Stay tuned for a giveaway. It’s such a good sale because it is on fall’s NEW ARRIVALS. I still love the rag + bone booties I bought off the sale 2 years ago. Such a great time to buy investment pieces on discount. I got mine almost 40% off!
Meanwhile, how good is this fringe jacket? It’s an elevated classic I love!
See the Nordstrom Anniversary Catalog HERE. SO many good buys but allow me to edit my favorites I’ll publish July 12. Why is early access worth it? Because items sell out. See what I posted last year about the sale with a baby bump!
See more Nordstrom faves below!
What are your plans for the Fourth? The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. good food, friends, and a chilly evening watching the fireworks. And maybe a day to sleep in? Levi hasn’t been the greatest sleeper but maybe he too will get the hint that its a holiday weekend. 2 years ago we went to the San Marino fireworks display at Lacy Park. While it was beautiful, scenic and fun to be with friends, never again! One of our friend’s daughter went missing and it was too many people to keep track of our then 4 children. So since last year, we started a tradition of watching the fireworks at Lake Arrowhead. Some of you know we have an A Frame we renovated here that we rent out. This year, we look forward to 4 days of clean mountain air at Lake Arrowhead. We can’t wait! Let’s transition to an upcoming sale in 11 days!!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
It is a HUGE sale on Fall new arrivals. Those who have the card, get “early access” because hot items always sell out first. Everything from booties to coats are up to 40% off. I still have these rag + bone booties I got from the sale 40% off retail that I still wear and LOVE. HERE is a sneak peek of the sale.
Also, FYI start preparing now for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! 1. Become a cardholder. I did this 2 years ago just to enter the sale early access and I’m SO glad I did. Sign up now for a $60 note! That is basically free money and a gift card to spend on whatever. Like that La Mer lotion you’ve been eying. 2. This sale is on NEW ARRIVALS. That is why this sale is SUCH A BIG DEAL. I literally get butterflies in my stomach nervous happy just thinking about it. It begins July 12, and be sure to follow my newsletter, Instagram and blog. I will aim to publish my blog post will my favorites from the sale from beauty devices to best in sale heels, boots and flats, at 12:30am, July 12. I don’t sleep much that day, haha. But it’s worth it. I still love the rag + bone boots I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale about 40% off retail. Now that’s worth a little loss of sleep.
Whether I’m shopping for the house, Levi or myself, Walmart has me covered. I ordered pj’s, onesies, and shorts for myself, chose next day delivery and BOOM, it arrived the next day. I sometimes wonder, how that is possible? I’m definitely getting spoiled. Just tonight, my dad, who is visiting, asked me if I had anything besides Pregnancy tea, NOPE. So he drank the pregnancy tea with his nightly lemon tea ritual. I had a LONG good laugh. Now, with 5, my life has never been busier, and Levi now 8 months has never been clingier. Anyone know of a good chiropractor? I’m loving the convenience of next day shipping. I even ordered baking powder online. Who am I becoming? This just means A. I am planning on baking something AHHHMAZING B. It means I still have pregnancy brain and I don’t trust myself to walk into Ralphs with baking powder on my list and still walk out with it. Alas, I’m sure one day when the kids are grown up, I’ll have a moment to myself. But in the mean time, I’ll enjoy all the conveniences of online grocery slash life purchases I can afford. And at walmart.com, thats a lot.
See what I purchased below and why! What’s in your cart?
Today’s outfit is giving me serious throwback vibes and I’m not upset about it. You guys know I love a good 70s-inspired look and every piece of this outfit has that feeling. This might not be your typical school pick up and drop off apparel, but I’m definitely going to be working all these pieces into my regular rotation.
Let’s start by talking about the top. Did crochet ever go out of style? Personally, I don’t think so. I think it’s been on trend non-stop since the 60s, but I’m especially loving it right now. It’s perfect for those hot summer days. I actually thrifted this top, so I can’t share this exact option, but I’ll link more crochet pieces I have my eye on.
As for the pants, wide-leg denim is quickly becoming my number one go-to. And now that it’s summer, you can expect to see me in this white pair non-stop. If you don’t have a pair (white or regular denim) in your wardrobe already, you have to pick some up ASAP! You’ll understand why I love them so much as soon as you put them on!
And isn’t my little purse fun? I think accessories are what make an outfit most of the time. Even though this one won’t quite cut it for mom duty, it’s still fun to wear when I run out for a meeting or weekend brunch with friends.
What are your feelings about crochet and rocking a 70s-inspired look? Are you into it?
After being gone a whole week, we were more than happy to see the 4 kiddos this weekend. We enjoyed a morning at church with papa, and an afternoon at the nursery buying plants and driving up to Lake Arrowhead. We planted (my favorite) raspberry bushes that take me back to playing Candy Land on my grandma’s porch snaking on raspberries while the air smelled like roses. Ah to be 5 again! We got a lot accomplished. Well my dad and Reid did while I nursed Levi. We also brought up 3 paint colors to try on the Lake Arrowhead cabin. Caviar by Sherwin Williams won, now, we wait for the city’s approval. Exciting things coming up. Here’s a link below to more dresses and leather jackets I’m loving:
As always, my shop page is open 24/7 and you can follow me on the Liketoknow.it app for immediate outfit details. Thanks for stopping by! xx Shalice

It’s an emergency. We are out of almond milk, so I’m having a straight up Nespresso coffee and collagen this morning.
Girls my peasant top I love wearing is now 40% off! Also the earrings I’ve been wearing lately are down to $52. So many good sale packs from the Nordstrom half yearly sale go check it out. I can’t believe even the gray wedge sandals I featured recently are under $50. I also I’m looking forward to wearing this white lace dress with a leather jacket, it’s on SALE too, only $66!
Outfit details: white jeans (I love the slight ankle flare!) // sandals in “gray leather”// graphic tee and similar // utility jacket (I sized up to a medium for an oversize look) // purse and similar // sunglasses similar
Also this dress is great to attend to a wedding, minus the white color obviously. Thanks for reading, I hope you found some goodies!
For me, a peasant top is a non-negotiable in a girl’s wardrobe. A quality one is hard to find. I like it to be heavy, not too lightweight, a tie, eyelet detail is fun, and THE FIT MUST BE PERFECT. That is non-negotiable. Seem like an impossible task? Well apparently it is not. I found it in this Frame top that is currently on sale at Shopbop. Score!
peasant top // wedgie jeans (mine are a little more worn out) // sandals // sunnies (chloe) // bag c/o Tamara Mellon // earrings (embarrassing, but I wear these every day!) Similar Turquoise Ring and here
This new bag from Tamara Mellon, who originally founded Jimmy Choo, fits my water bottle, wipes, and feels like AMAZING nubby leather. The color here is bone, which I was totally on the fence about. I’ll admit I’m a camel bag junkie and even tried on the camel and black colors. But you know which one won me over? BONE. Love the unusual color to my handbag collection. It can be worn three ways and deep enough to fit a laptop or chipotle burrito. Just kidding. It converts to a tote using the handles, cross body bag or shoulder bag. How cool is that?
I have a new post on the blog today featuring the NUFACE SALE and SHOPBOP SALE, don’t miss it! As always, my shop page is open 24/7 and as always, ask any questions! Here or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t mind your “hey, where is that from,” quick messages.
Happy two days before FRIDAY!
I get some of the sweetest DM’s from you – my followers! I get some regarding family, diet, home and fashion. Here’s a sample below!
How do you take the walking pictures in the middle of the street?
We wait till the cars pass, it’s usually not too crazy on the weekends!
How do you make your energy balls?
I’ll admit I’m addicted and I don’t even freeze them anymore. I eat them raw not frozen. Blend in a cuisanart 1 cup whole oats and 3 T dark chocolate chunks. Add to that 1/2 cup honey, 2 t. cinnamon and 1/2 cup almond butter. Freeze for 30min if you have the will power. More than I do.
What is the brand of collagen you use?
Vital Proteins collagen powder. I’ve been almost using it for a year. It’s been so good for my hair and nails.
If you could get one Nuface device which would it be?
Oh that’s hard! The Mini and Trinity are my top 2. The mini is great for a smaller travel friendly option and trinity has the attachments to target specific areas like wrinkles with the red light and two prongs to target lip and laugh lines. Stay tuned for a friends and family sale!
Are Golden Goose sneakers ever on sale?
Yes! occasionally! See below.
I don’t wanna pay full price, any good designer sales?
