Living in Baton Rouge, it’s definitely an advantage to have the beach just a short road trip away. In college, Orange Beach, Alabama was one of our favorite spring break destinations, and I have so many fun memories there! Even now, I still frequent the Alabama beaches with friends during the summer. (I was also just there for Hangout Fest!) After my most recent trip with Hotel Indigo Orange Beach, anIHG hotel, I put together an Orange Beach travel guide filled with spots to eat, drink and hang out all within short distances from the hotel!
As I was scrolling through the pages of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I couldn’t help but pick up on repeating trends throughout the different clothing categories. Mules and bell sleeves for fall seem to be at the top of the list for must-have transitional items. So it’s not surprising to see that this gorgeous red bell sleeve top made it’s way into my closet! Plus, it may be on sale for under $50, it’s an easy piece to make look more expensive! See how I’m wearing it with a few effortless accessories like these amazing wedge mules from Sole Society in today’s post. Plus, get Gucci belt sizing information!
Don’t get me wrong, some days having absolutely nothing to do is a GREAT thing. Other times you are itching to get out of the house to do something – anything! But what, right? Growing up as an only child taught me to get creative when you find yourself with time on your hands. Inspired by the Belk’s True Craft brand, I’m channeling my best “weekend vibes” to share five of my favorite ways to beat summer boredom – on any budget.
True Craft allows you to explore your own one-of-a-kind style and is perfect to wear on any summer adventure! I wore my True Craft tie-front tee for a day on the bike with classic jean shorts and my favorite slip-on sneakers. (Also a comfy option for your favorite sweat pants and a mug of coffee!)
With everything selling out in the Nordstrom Sale, I’ve been trying to navigate through the remaining pages of sale items to see what’s left and still worth scooping up. I realized that there are SO many good dresses left you guys! While most people were focused on sweaters and cardigans, the dresses seem to have been looked over – which is so crazy to me! Dresses are the best transitional piece to wear with sandals and booties. So scroll below to see my top ten Nordstrom Anniversary Sale dresses to shop now + one of my favorite late summer midi dresses!

How many times have you been in a hurry, pulled something out of your closet and put it back because it was a big, wrinkled mess? (ahem, raises hand) Because let’s be honest, the process of ironing is a giant time suck. In fact, I despise ironing, and I haven’t actually used an iron in probably over three years! I’m spilling on a big time and travel hack that enables me to get dressed faster – my hand-held garment steamer.
If you haven’t tried a steaming vs. ironing yet, you’ll want to keep reading for the details on my Rowenta Steam ‘N Press that’s only $30 at Target!
