I took a few much-needed days off blogging to spend at home and with my son this week and it’s done me good. That contest wore me out and I couldn’t be more grateful for your kind and thoughtful comments on my recap post
. Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel good! I’ve been enjoying different food without going overboard lately and have been indulging in this sweet treat
without all the fat and calories. It’s perfect for us ice-cream lovers. I’ll be sharing more of my post-contest meals and fitness plan soon.
As our summer winds down (school starts back so early here – August 12!), I’ll be ‘slow blogging’, just here and there so I get to soak up as much time with my 5-year old as I can before he’s gone everyday. He’s at the sweetest stage where he just wants to be with his parents all the time and I’m loving it! We’ll be taking a short weekend trip soon too and it will be great to get away.
This week, some of my order from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale
arrived and so now I can share my thoughts with you on all the boots and booties I ordered- remember I went a little overboard and ordered all of these: Baila Ashton Wedge Ankle Bootie
, Lucky Brand Betwixt Bootie
, Lucky Brand Heloisse Boot
, Vince Camuto Maves Bootie
, and the Born Helen Boot
See all my boots and booties picks here. 😉
And I did a big Best of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale round up here so definitely check that out! There are so many great deals to be had and prices go up Monday, August 3.
First off, this Halogen Long Sleeve Chambray shirt
is my new fave! It’s hard to tell from a photo but it’s super soft and looks ‘lived in’. I bought it in navy and white, but they also have a tan one called ‘stone fossil’ that I want now since I know the quality of the shirt in person. If it’s sold out by the time you check, I hope they restock. They often do, so check back if they don’t have your size/color. I’m wearing regular XS here, but it also comes in petite.
These Lucky Brand Heloisse Boot
s are really nice too. They come in three colors (two browns and a black). They fit me perfectly true to size and I think they’d be great for running around it since the heel isn’t too tall and the toe is rounded. I’m still deciding if I’ll keep them because I’m so picky about boots and I’m thinking I may still make a run to the store to see if I have found the best ones.
I loved the look of the Born Helen Boot
because they are so pretty, but the calf was too wide on me, poking out on the sides of my leg. It’s a bummer because they actual fit in the foot was perfect and they were really comfortable. Every pair of Born shoes I’ve tried on have a great comfy fit.
The Lucky Brand Betwixt Bootie
is a great short bootie in a lightly distressed suede and comes in 4 colors. I ordered a half size up and they fit great. This color (dark moss) will go with so much this fall and winter.
I’m also crazy for the Bobeau long cardigan (2 for $65)
. It’s soft and cozy and comes in 12 colors/patterns. The XS fit perfectly, but I wanted them a little roomier, so I got the small. This is great for layering over tanks and tees. I’m wearing the Topshop U-neck tank here
– only $18
I had mixed feelings about the blanket poncho
. It’s seriously so soft and cozy (not at all scratchy) and I could totally see wrapping up in this on the couch while watching tv, but I could never wear it out of the house- it totally swallowed me. And I’m wearing the XS. Sadly, it’s probably going back. 🙁
I’m definitely keeping this quilted vegan cross body bag. It’s only $21.90 (reg. $34). I’ve already used it and love the size and expensive look for less.
I’ve told you before about my HWH Everyday Fave Halogen tee shirt and they are on sale for $15.90 (regularly $25) so stock up now. They even have a couple colors marked down to $12.90! My latest one is a fun light blueish-grey/white stripe. I buy XS to allow for shrinkage.
My second Rocksbox was also a success! If you’re interested in joining, you can use my code honeywerehomexoxo (thank you!) to get the first month free, and then, when you refer a friend, you’ll get $25 to spend toward Rocksbox jewelry.
Finally, you’ve seen my bright white nails throughout the post and I think it’s fun for summer. I’m wearing this polish. Have you tried white nails this summer?!
