What’s in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Cart

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Shopping Cart

Chambray Shirt | Necklace | Black Jacket | Calf-Hair Flats | Mac Lip Kit | Jeans | Faux Leather Leggings | T-shirt | Tennis Shoes If I am being totally honest, I’ve had zero time to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Last night I was finally able to scroll through the pages and browse through endless options. Although I wish I could’ve added about 100 items to my cart, I narrowed it down. Here are the must-have items (of the moment) for me! When shopping sales like this one, I like to keep it simple. Rather than go crazy by purchasing those super fun items (think bold patterns and bright colors), instead I focus on neutrals that can be worn time and time again. I am also very selective in the category of items that I purchase by spreading the love between pants, tops, shoes and accessories. I hone in on what I wear most and build my picks based on need and versatility! And of course I couldn’t pass up a lip kit or cheeky tee. Mack and I took at 90 minute yoga class yesterday (yup! I was dying!) and when I saw this “shavasana” t-shirt, I knew it was meant to be! […]

Baby Blue Tiered Dress

Baby Blue Tiered Dress

Baby Blue Tiered Dress | Rock Stud Heels | Crossbody | Sunglasses This week literally flew by! I was swamped and felt like I played catch up the entire time but I’m back on track and ready for the weekend. Can I get an amen? I was catching up all week as we spent this past weekend at my cousin’s wedding in Newport, Rhode Island. I’d never visited before and loved the temporary change of scenery. Mack and I managed to sneak in a little bit of work as we played and we’re greeted with hydrangea bushes and classic homes on every corner. It was a really fun weekend and a refreshing break from our very demanding schedules. In an attempt to hold onto that feeling I’ve compiled a short list of places I’d like to visit in the coming year. Here they are: Asheville, NC– Mack and I lived in North Carolina for a short period of time and we loved it. We didn’t ever make it to Asheville however so I want to stay at the Biltmore and spoil ourselves for a weekend. (Also, the downtown area looked really fun from what I saw on Southern Charm!) Savannah, […]

Marigold Pleated Dress

Marigold Pleated Dress

Marigold Pleated Dress | Leopard Heels (similar) | Tweed Clutch (similar) | Sunglasses This week has been jam-packed and it’s only Wednesday! With that being said, I again find myself penning or rather typing this post at 9 pm on Tuesday evening. Such is life so let’s keep it short and sweet shall we? This dress features adorable pleats, cold shoulder detailing and a vibrant hue that works from summer to fall. Living on the Emerald Coast, it’s totally okay to wear a summer dress come early-October because it’s still warm outside. I caught a breeze during these photos and the pleats accentuate the natural movement of this dress- I love that it’s so flowy! This weekend, although not quite here, is an exciting time for my family! My cousin is getting married and I am so excited- and will probably cry all weekend haha (we’ve grown up together). Due to that, I am taking a break from my post schedule. Of course, keep up with me on Instagram as I’ll be posting behind-the-scenes details of our weekend. Also, I created this #NSale page and will update it with my picks periodically throughout my “break.” This page will be my hub for […]

Ruffle Trim Blouse

Ruffle Trim Top

Ruffle Trim Blouse | White Flare Jeans | Speedy 30 | Wedges | Sunglasses This week was on fast-forward and I sorta loved it! Work was extremely busy with just three days and I feel like I blinked and Friday’s here. Yay! With this week already wrapping up, I can’t wait to sport this ruffle trim blouse from Nordstrom next week at the office. I love the pinstripes and exaggerated ruffle trim paired with the simplicity of a classic oxford. This is my idea of an oxford!  Anyways, this week’s inspiration comes from an unforeseen place! Mack loves to go see movies! Since this past weekend was a long one, naturally we went to see two haha. On Saturday we saw Wonder Woman and on Sunday we saw the new Transformers. They were both great but what stuck with me was a quote I heard before the movie even began. We got there early (to pick the best seats, as you do) and during one of the pre-movie trailer commercials I heard this quote, “maybe our most extraordinary moments happen when we feel small.” Mack and I both looked at each other acknowledging SO MUCH YES to that quote! Sadly, […]

What to Wear on a Summer Day in NYC

What to Wear in NYC

Chambray Dress (similar here & here) | Sunglasses | Sandals | Handbag (stole from Mom, mine here) I hope everyone had a great Independence Day weekend! One Monday, I detailed some fun ideas of what to do when you visit New York City. Today, I thought it would be fun to share the outfit that I wore on the day we walked over 22,000 steps. The fast-paced lifestyle of the City makes me feel like there’s never enough time to see everything. With that in mind, we definitely don’t go back to change during the day for different occasions- from breakfast to dinner and everything in-between, this chambray dress was my lifesaver. Here are some tips when dressing for a long day in the City: Make a Game Plan & Dress Accordingly: The City, although just a “small island,” packs a lot of punch in each neighborhood. Make sure to plan ahead and decide what you want to do then plan your outfit accordingly. Of course, this outfit was not what I wore when I attended the Bridal Shower but for a day of sightseeing and taking in the City, this dress, comfortable flat sandals and a cross body bag fit […]

Utility Dress for the Weekend

Utility Dress for the Weekend

Utility Dress | Sunglasses | Clutch | Tennis Shoes (similar) Weekend wear at its best lives in a utility dress, flat sneakers and a clutch that offers hassle-free fun! The pre-holiday Independence Day weekend is here and I am SO glad. Mack has Monday and Tuesday off and I am lucky enough to also have an extended weekend and I literally don’t know what we’re going to do with ourselves! We are so excited for this mini vacation right in our own backyard. This frayed utility dress caught my eye in some recent online browsing shopping and it’s perfect for a relaxed weekend. Mack and I love to ride our bikes to dinner, have a couple of cocktails and then bike ride home. I know what you’re thinking, those people know how to #party! But to us, it’s a dream haha! This dress and hands-free clutch (the most weekend-friendly clutch ever) offer the comfortably and versatility to weekend how we want. We plan to do just that starting today and hope you have similar plans! Wishing you (an early) Happy Fourth of July! Thank you for reading today!

What to Wear to a Summer Rehearsal Dinner

Red, White and Blue

Dress (similar) | Gingham Handbag (similar) | Heels | Sunglasses Good morning from New York City! I am here with my mom and so happy for a girls weekend. Even better, we’re in town for some of my cousin’s pre-wedding festivities. I am excited to spend time in the city AND get to see family! It’s a win-win for sure. We have a busy day planned so be sure to keep up with me on Instagram to get a more behind-the-scenes look at my trip! My cousin’s wedding is in July and with less than a month to plan, I decided I better get my rehearsal dinner outfit together. She’s having a clam bake rehearsal dinner before her Rhode Island based wedding. Of course, attire is completely event dependent but based on the invitation, you can usually sense the overall vibe of the rehearsal dinner. Regardless, here are some tips I compiled to help you determine what to wear to a summer rehearsal dinner: Select Airy Fabric– Summer weddings are the best but with temperatures at their highest, it can get warm! Plan accordingly and opt for a light dress with airy fabric. As cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are usually enjoyed on […]

Floral Maxi under $60

Floral Maxi under $60

Floral Maxi | Handbag (use code “littlemrsparticular” for discount!) | Shoes | Sunglasses (similar) I’ve never understood the statement, “there aren’t enough hours in the day,” until I tried to maintain a full-time job, run a blog and keep a household tidy and functioning. I get it now, I really do. Come Friday, Mack and I are living the full “weekender” life and loved our relaxing Saturday. We walked the dogs, rode our bikes to the beach and did a lot of patio lounging because, that’s right, we finally got new patio furniture. I’ll do a post about it on Wednesday so you can see what we decided on. But come Sunday, it was back to business with church, grocery shopping, laundry, and blog work. I am in such awe of all that has been presented to both Mack and me, and trust in the Lord’s plan (and know it’s not because of us, but because of His blessings) that we are busy for good reason. A thankful heart keeps me going! Anyways, THIS maxi. For whatever reason, I’ve spent most of my adult life avoiding maxi dresses. I literally didn’t own one until I found this cold-shoulder option. Honestly, the price point (under $60!), the […]

Bold Ruffle Dress

Bold Ruffle Dress

Bold Ruffle Dress (similar here, here and here) | Clutch (similar) | Block Heels | Sunglasses | Bracelets (Similar) Was this week a little on the long side for anyone else? I feel like its been Wednesday like three time over. I am thankful it’s Friday and looking forward to a weekend of no. plans. Well, Mack and I might go to yoga on Saturday morning but that’s about the extent of it. I am heading out of town again next weekend so I am excited for a down weekend at home with my boys (a.k.a Mack, Rebel and Tiger haha). I featured this chambray ruffle top a few weeks ago and just continue to embrace the ruffle trend! I snagged this bold ruffle dress while in Denver and with a bridal shower next weekend, couldn’t resist it. It’s summery and features a waffle material that keeps it casual. I dressed it up with a spotted clutch and block heels. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I LOVE this clutch and sport it pretty much year-round (and weekly!). Sometimes you just need that extra layer or texture to keep the outfit interesting. This clutch does that for me often! Have you […]

What To Do in Denver

Pink Denver Tank

Denver Tank (similar) | Jeans | Heels (on sale!) | Sunglasses | Gigi Crossbody No matter what, your hometown is your hometown! I grew up in a suburb of Denver, attended an all-girls high school and to date, have spent the majority of my life in Colorado. It’s beautiful for sure, but living in the South has opened my eyes to different places in our country. If I am being honest, I now feel more “at home” on Florida’s Emerald Coast but will never forget the place that built me. A few weeks ago I took a weekend trip to Colorado and made time to stop by some of my favorite places! Because when you fly across the country, you make time to hit every place you’ve been missing. As my Mom and I zipped around town hitting all of our fun spots, I knew I had to share my side of Denver with each of you. Let’s skip the obvious outdoorsy things to do in Colorado like “go skiing” and get to the good stuff like best place to enjoy a cocktail with a view and where to shop… you know, the important stuff! Here’s how I do my hometown: Favorite Boutiques to […]
