There are so many great beauty buys at this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that we just had to fill you in on our top 7 must-haves.

With great deals on brand-new fall styles, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best time (and perfect excuse!) to do your kids' back-to-school shopping. If you don't feel like battling the crowds, online shopping in your cozies is the way to go and just return what doesn't fit. Especially when we're shopping for our kids -- there's so much more flexibility with the fit when it comes to clothing. What did we do before online shopping??!! Or, if you and your kids enjoy the process, it's fun to make a day of it with a little shopping and lunch. Either way, it's great to have the option and generally a good idea to go ...Read more.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Every July. And, a back-to-school / fall shopping tradition for me as far back as I can remember. Having grown up in Seattle, Nordstrom was always THE place to shop. My daughter and I are carrying on the tradition and every year we enjoy the pre-sale event where I add new fall must-haves to my closet and she chooses (with guidance!) her back-to-school wardrobe. I love that she loves fashion as much as I do and she actually has a great eye already at the ripe old age of 7. (Or as she would say -- "I'm really 8 because my birthday's in a few weeks!" Remember when you wanted to be ...Read more.
We've always envied Kate Hudson's carefree, confident, feminine style and her insanely gorgeous gown she wore to the Fendi 90th anniversary celebration is no exception. This boy mom's super-fit bod looks amazing in a midriff-baring cut. Okay, back to the ab crunches! In the meantime, we found a runway-to-reality dress inspired by Kate's that works for a variety of body types and all ages. So pretty and perfect for date night or a special event. Embrace your inner goddess! ...Read more.
There's no shortage of statement prints to choose from this summer and it's really about selecting a look that speaks to your personal style. I gravitate to modern abstract florals (this top!) over realistic flower prints, which to me look old-fashioned. And, the cutouts on the shoulders give the look a sexy, yet totally appropriate at any age, vibe. I kept the focus on the top and paired it with these must-have, oh-so-comfy, super affordable black shorts that can be dressed up with wedges or down with sneakers. Ethnic patterns have also been in the spotlight for a few seasons now, like this darling dress Christina ...Read more.
Soon I'll be saying "peace out" to Arizona and leaving the extreme heat behind for awhile -- I'm really looking forward to some concentrated family summer fun and downtime! SO... I have been shopping and pulling aside what is making the edit for my suitcase, and one must-pack item is this boho tunic from Calypso St. Barth. I love the happy colors, easy fit, and the gorgeous detailed embroidery and tassels. Not to mention the versatility as this lovely will go from shopping to pool (perfect cover-up!) to cocktails. Ciao! ...Read more.
