For me, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale means back-to-school shopping time! My mom and I have fun every year going to the store and trying on all the new clothes for fall, then picking out my favorites for the start of school. This year I start 5th grade and that's Middle School at my school, so we have a dress code we need to follow. Shorts and skirts have to be a certain length and tops have to have a collar if they don't have a sleeve or a sleeve if there's no collar. I need basics like tees and jeans too, but they can't be distressed for school, which is a challenge as most denim is distressed right now! Plus, I ...Read more.
It's that time of year again... fall fashion on SALE in July.... the highly-anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! My daughter and I generally hit the first day of early access for Nordstrom cardholders and make a day of it, but this year she's at camp all week, so we'll be doing our annual mother-daughter back-to-school shopping trip this weekend.

If you have kids, it's all about the floatie army! Which one's your favorite?? At the moment, we are obsessed with the giant unicorn (so magical!) and fruity pineapple (diggin' the tropical vibe!). And, how about the huge oyster shell or pretty peacock or colorful cactus?! We can't get enough. Plus, they make summer photos in the pool or at the lake so much more interesting and instagrammable! ...Read more.
Our girl just hit another childhood milestone. Braces. And, if you have a kid with braces, you know that finding healthy, non-sticky, non-sugary, overly processed snacks you can throw in their backpack is a challenge. Not to mention, most schools and camps are nut-free since nut allergies have become so commonplace in the last decade or so. Our own Deirdre Hahn's daughter has dealt with a severe nut allergy for most of her childhood. (Read more about her story and ideas for nut-free lunches.) In addition, many kids deal with GI or stomach issues (like my daughter) and benefit from following a whole food diet. Let's ...Read more.
