Amazon and Nordstrom Sales Picks

There are 2 amazing sales going on right now! Today is Amazon Prime Day AND the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access sale is already in full swing for card members. I wanted to share a few items that really stuck out to me from both of these epic sales. Amazon Prime Day Favorites From the Amazon sale – if you don’t already own an Instant Pot (aka my favorite kitchen device), now is the time to get one. It’s usually $129 and is now marked down to $56! I make coconut sticky white rice weekly in this bad boy in under 12 minutes. I also love making soups, chicken, fish, and veggies in it. It’s the easiest kitchen device and makes things taste so moist and delicious!!! If you need a new laptop, the MacBook Air 13″ is currently $200 off! Also from Apple, are the AirPods which are marked down from $159 to just under $145. There are a ton of other tech devices and gadgets on there so be sure to browse the site to see the full list! Lastly, if you’ve been wanting to get a magazine subscription to People, Elle Decor, Shape and more…they’re offering up to 85% off the yearly fee on many of them! Side note – did you know you can shop on Shopbop through Amazon? It’s a great way to hide your clothing purchases from your hubby LOL! Amazon owns Shopbop so they’ve got tons of beautiful clothes and accessories for any season here! I just ordered this classic white shirtdress for my upcoming trip to Santa Barbara. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Favorites From the Nordstrom sale – oh man, where to begin?! This sale is always PACKED with deeply discounted staple pieces that are ideal for any occasion. I have to say, I’m very impressed with the selection this year. Tons of great workout pieces, cute PJs, coats, dresses and more… Clothing wise I am loving this Rails plaid button down, this long cardigan, this cozy sweater, this nightshirt which I own 3 of, this teddy coat, these Nike leggings, this leather jacket, this printed blouse, this stunning burnt orange midi skirt, this stripe button down, this classic trench, and these simple boyfriend jeans. For accessories I have my eye on these sneakers, these rain boots (so needed for NYC!), these simple pumps, and this light cashmere scarf. For beauty I love this Charlotte Tilbury lip kit, Oribe kit (I always use these when I travel); Tom Ford mini shimmer body oil (this is my FAVE in the summer), and this diffuser which smells heavenly and I just ran out of! Giveaway! To celebrate both sales, I want to treat 2 lucky readers to a $250 gift card to either Amazon OR Nordstrom. Your choice!

Summer Style on Bleecker

I have been soaking up every second of this gorgeous summer weather! It’s been in the 80s all week in NYC and I’ve been out and about, wearing all of my light summer pieces. I picked up this black silk skirt in Montauk the other weekend at the Bluestone Lane Collective boutique – and I love the way it drapes. It’s from a small Aussie designer and also comes in white. This skirt is super similar and only $78. I paired the slip skirt with a soft white button down from Abercrombie and tied it at the waist. This tied up blouse + skirt combo has become my go-to summer look and is perfect to throw on if I don’t know what to wear! Abercrombie has the best button downs if you’re looking for a few new ones to spruce up your wardrobe! These lace up sandals are a few seasons old from Club Monaco. They carry this pair online now, and then this Madewell pair is super similar. I own them in the darker brown color and can attest they’re great quality/comfortable to walk for long periods of time in. I was strolling along Bleecker Street in the West Village the other day and was so excited to see that The Daily Edited opened a shop there now! Honestly, I love their leather luggage, cosmetic cases and iPhone cases. I picked up this cute monogram iPhone case at the boutique and it was ready in 15 minutes. You can customize the font and colors – so fun right?!

Easy Summer Outfit

Summer in NYC is HOT and HUMID. You step outside and are pretty much drenched in sweat 15 minutes later lol. So the key for getting dressed in the summer is finding LIGHT pieces that are breathable and relaxed. This is my go-to easy summer outfit.You’ll never believe that this skirt is under $30! Yes! H&M has the cutest stuff from apparel to home goods – and I am particularly loving their skirt selection this season. You know I love a midi length anything, and they have a zillion midi length skirts that flatter any silhouette. The skirt I’m wearing also comes in a red floral pattern. I currently have my eye on this simple black cotton skirt! It’s soooo airy, lightweight and looks cute for running errands, a casual dinner date, brunch with the girls, or shopping. I love tying a simple white button down at the waist with a skirt like this. Your waist instantly gets cinched and it’s a more playful take on a classic button down. Abercrombie is another brand that has really been stepping up their game and has a ton of affordable, well made, summery pieces. For accessories, I brought out my favorite leather bucket bag from Mansur Gavriel that I’ve had for years. I also have it in the tan leather and have worn it to death. They’re such quality bags and will be in style for years to come. I’ve gotten a lot of questions asking if these Hermes Oran sandals are worth it – and in my opinion, yes they are. They’re another quality staple piece that I’ve worn into the ground and that have really held up. They’re timeless and soooo comfortable. Head to my Summer outfits section to get more outfit inspo for the season!
