Twirling in Charleston: Ruffle Maxi Dress

































I could be happy just enjoying the heat of Summer days for as long as I live! Summer is my favorite season and I am in no rush to wish it away.  I hope you all had a great weekend and start to the week! I did a little bit of nothing and honestly that was much needed.  I've got a trip planned out West in a couple weeks so for now I'm just soaking up as much of Summer in the South as I can.  You guys know my mine, now tell me what is your favorite season of the year?

You might remember that I ventured to the beautiful city of Charleston, SC a few weeks back and I still haven't gotten around to sharing all of the pics from that adventure (regular 9-5 job keeps my mind racing).  Each and every time I get the pleasure to venture to Charleston I stay in a different hotel, try a new restaurant, and hit the beach.  There's always a new adventure that awaits in this darling city!  I'm going to round up some suggestions for those of you who are interested because one foodie to another, I love to eat when I'm in town.

Aside from my travel ramblings, this dress is hands down my favorite of the season!  I can't get over how gorgeous it is and the ruffle details are amazing. What more do you need than an easy breezy dress?  I packed it along for the trip and grabbed it to walk around town in. This dress is under $100 and is seriously a MUST-HAVE!

P.S.  I won't even tell y'all what it took to get these photos! I dodged about a zillion cars in the street but hey many years from now I hope to look back and say "look what I did!"



Always,

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Shop With Me



It's a wonderful time of year!  The time has come again for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the shopping shall commence!  Last year was my first attempt at tackling this popular sales event and from experience I know it can be really overwhelming.  I'm breaking down some need to know information to conquer successfully!

When To Shop:

The Anniversary Sale opens to all Nordstrom Card holders on July 12th at 3:00 am.

- I have a card and in my opinion it is so worth it! Not only do you get early access to the sale but there are so many great benefits like earning points towards a Nordstrom note.  Its basically like free money! I'll but narrowing selections as the sale goes live and will share a curated post by morning! This way you can see what I think are the best items to shop.  I have an appointment Friday afternoon to shop in-store and will do some try-ons then.  



The sale opens to the Public on July 20th at 3:00 am.  
-This is means that anyone can shop the sale, with or without a card Nordstrom card! Last year I shopped throughout the sale and even as it went public there are many items that get restocked.  I suggest that you act fast on anything you are REALLY loving and don't chance it!  
What To Shop:
There are always surprises to the sale! So even through Nordstrom puts out a catalog of featured items for the sale there are a TON more things to love on.  I'll be looking for basics or staples as I call the..... so think denim, cardigans, booties, tops.  Then I'll be looking for the a few special pieces that really make a statement! I just can't help myself.  
HOW TO SHOP:
Blog! As I mentioned I will pull together selections broken down by category right here on the blog as the sale goes like on July 12th! All of those picks will be available to shop directly from my blog and the direct link that will be located in my bio.  Easy peasy! I'll continue to update picks as items are added to the sale and certainly tell you loves if I expect something to sell out quickly.  
LikeToKnowIt! The app is such a great resource and you can easily like magic shop anything I share.  Additionally the wish list feature is amazing if you want to come back to something later.  I strongly encourage you follow me there!

Always,

Summer Sundress


What is it about these sweet Summer days?  I swear I never want them to end.  If I had my way I would spend my days simply enjoying the sunshine and nothing else.  With my corporate job demanding most of my time these days the weekend is when I'm really thriving! Doing all the summertime things like pool days and evening snowcone runs are my favorite.  This weekend for me was spent by the pool and I'm headed out to dinner tonight with friends! Perfection.

This dress is one of my Summer sundress favorites!  I love the vintage look and the classic blue and white color palette makes it an instant winner in my book.  Not going to lie I've worn this dress many times and loving paring it with this headband.  I went for a contrasting colors so that it would really pop for the look.  I honestly couldn't believe the dress was under $50 and its one piece I'll be wearing all Summer long!




Always,

Ashlei
