Here are a few reasons why I’m obsessed with the sarong this summer:

  1.  It is a fun way to complete your pool or beach look and to have a quick cover up
  2. They add color and pattern
  3. You can use summer scarfs for a shorter version
  4. They are inexpensive
  5. You can find summer scarfs everywhere.  My favs:  J-crew Factory Outlet, Loft, Target (See links below)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up next week.  July 13th for cardholders, July 21st for non-card holders and the prices go back up August 8th.

I wanted to give you all the scoop on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why you’ll want to check it out.

This sale is unlike any sale.  All of the items are brand new Fall items, new to the store marked down 40-60%.  After the sale ends all of these items go back up to regular price.  It is time to make a list for what you need for Fall:  jeans, boots, sweaters, tops, accessories, athletic wear, handbags, etc.

Remember Nordstrom offers free returns and free shipping so its the best time to shop while the sale is going on and you can always return later.  If you are in-between sizes I’d recommend ordering two sizes because so many items sell out fast.

If you are in St. Louis I’d recommend making a free appointment with Amber Kemp, the personal shopper to help you maneuver the sale.  Her email is:

Hope you find tons of goodies.  I’ll be posting mine.

Here are a few of my favs from previous Nordstrom fitting room frenzy.

If you are in the St Louis area and like this clutch RUN to the Runway TJMaxx in Des Peres.  I got this clutch tonight for $29 and it is the exact same clutch that Nordstrom is selling.  How perfect is this to tie together all your red, white and blue outfits for the festive weekend.

This is my FAVORITE polish when getting a regular manicure for two reasons.

1.  It dries fast so you don’t have to wait all day for it to dry with out a smudge.

2.  It lasts a week and its regular polish, not the gel, so you don’t have to get it taken off at the salon.

I got the scoop from my nail salon on the hottest colors this summer.

1-I’m wearing Funny Bunny
2-Its pink PM
4-The Thrill of Brazil

My salon charges $2 more but I feel it’s worth it.  XOXO




Here is a little OOTD inspiration for your upcoming summer parties or 4th of July BBQ’s.  All of these pieces are so versatile.  As you may have noticed I am obsessed with this hat.  Lucky for me the cost per wear is pennies at this point.  J-Crew Outlet is one of my favorite spots for afforable wardrobe staples and accessories.  This clutch literally goes with everything.

Sarah’s Scoop:  If you are shopping at an outlet mall, sign up for the VIP shopper club.  It’s FREE.  Then when you get to the mall go to the customer service office for a discount book.

At the St Louis Premium Outlet they give you a savings passport for tons of the stores that offer even additional discounts.  So for J-crew the passport offers an additional 10% off $100 or more.  BONUS!!

Happy shopping friends!!  XOXOX
