Hi friends and happy Tuesday! Who else is looking forward to the upcoming holiday weekend? I can’t believe we’re in the final week of June! I won’t ever wish time away, but I’m doing a happy dance in this white little frock because I love the month of July! Of course we start out with the 4th, which is such a special holiday! We spend it with our nearest and dearest family & friends celebrating our GREAT country while giving thanks and feeling grateful for our freedom and the blessed lives we lead. You’ll catch me by the pool with a cold brew in hand while patriotic tunes play, the dads grill all sorts of yummy treats, the moms make jello shots, and me, being the former bartender, make bomb pop drinks, because hey, why not drink a red, white, and blue cocktail?!
Then on July 13th, the BEST SALE OF THE YEAR begins. The Nordstrom Sale aka the #NSale is my favorite sale of all time because they debut brand new items that, wait for it… are actually in season and are items that you can wear now. Genius! I stock up on a ton of summer-to-fall transitional items like tees, light weight sweaters, duster cardis, denim, and booties. Nordstrom card holders (credit and debit – I have the debit) can get early access to the sale on the 13th and then it opens up to the public on the 21st. So if you don’t have a Norstrom card yet, I highly recommend you get one! I don’t prefer credit cards because, hello, #nowillpower, so I went with the debit card. It links directly to my checking account, which keeps me in check because I’m not buying on credit, but you still earn points with every purchase! And trust me, those points add up. It’s like all of a sudden you’re shopping with a bunch of Nordstrom Notes, which means you’re practically robbing the place ha! You can read here, here, and here about the #NSale and why I believe it’s the one sale you must shop!
July is also my birthday month! My 32nd birthday is on July 21st and I’m so excited it’s on a Friday this year! I like to have a birthday week instead of a day, so you better believe we’ll be celebrating all week long. July 21st also marks the day Tony and I got engaged! I can’t believe he proposed two years ago. Time flies when you’re planning a wedding and getting married ha! It’s also crazy to think that we’ve been married for just about 6 months now. Oh I wish we could do that day all over again! I’ll be sharing our wedding video next week, as well as a ton of photos, giving the details on all things wedding vendors, and answering your questions, so stay tuned for that!
And last but not least, I’m headed to Charleston, SC at the end of July with a few other blogger friends for a trip with Toyota! I’ve never been to Charleston and it’s been on my bucket list for quite some time, so I can hardly wait to get there! One of my favorite shows is Southern Charm on Bravo and every time I watch it, I get more and more ideas as to where we can shoot some photos, explore, eat and drink. Everyone there seems to be dressed to the nines all the time, so there’s a little bit of pressure, especially being there on a blog/work trip! It’s also hotter than heck there in the Summer, so I definitely plan to bring along this white dress! It’s a linen/cotton blend, which will keep me cool and comfy in the humidity. I love that it has pockets and the coral red embroidered flowers is the pretties touch! My Sabby Style readers can use special discount code (SABBY20) on this dress, making it just $33 from K. Ellis Boutique! For size reference, I’m in a Small.
So tell me what you look forward to in July?! xoxo
