Happy hump day friends! It’s been a busy week here since finishing up my bikini contest last weekend. It was a long day and I’m working on a detailed recap post, but for now, you can see some photos on my Instagram that I shared from the contest. I’m so happy that I made it to the finish line! I’ve definitely been indulging the past few days, but I’m also still training with my trainer so I don’t lose what I’ve worked so hard for. Other than that, we’ve been taking it pretty easy and enjoying some pool time. It’s the peak of our hot season here and the pool is the only way to be outside without feeling like your dying! Tomorrow, I’ll be heading to Atlanta for the Haven blog conference and I cannot wait to see all my friends in person! Are you going? I’d love to meet you!
I might be packing this super cute tunic dress I found at the adorable online boutique Goodnight Macaroon (which has free shipping). It can be worn as a dress like I’m wearing here, or a top or even a bathing suit cover up. Since I’m so short, it works well as a dress on me. I got the XS, but I’m going to have to be careful washing it because it’s 100% cotton and I don’t want it to shrink.
I’m still totally digging my short hair. I curled it with a curling wand here, but with this summer heat, the curls don’t last too long unless you use a super strong hairspray.
I also recently picked up a tunic top at another online boutique Chicwish that I’m loving. They have really affordable pieces that are different that what you might see at most stores. It’s that comfy cute look I like to run around in on casual days.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is not disappointing this year! It’s early access now for cardholders, but opens to everyone on Friday (yippee!!) and I’ll be back with more sale picks. See my first round (including boots and booties!! here).
I haven’t set foot in the store (they might frown upon me entering in pj’s), but I’ve done my fair share of online shopping! I’m so bummed this tote sold out before I could order it! Gotta be quick! I’m going to keep checking back because they often restock. I did pick up this quilted cross body bag for under $22! Perfect for a night out!
I’m smitten over their dress sales, several styles are work appropriate and could also go from day to night. That zipper one (#4) is one of my favorites!
For more casual dresses, the selection of maxis and day dresses is great too. Can’t beat these sale prices! I have #1 (in a different print), #3 (different print), #5, and #6 and they are all easy to wear and perfect with flats or wedges. I’m XS in all of them for size reference.
