KIDS CLOTHES AND MEMORIES THAT LAST











ON ME:  DRESS (worn as a skirt)  ||  TEE  ||  SANDALS

ON FOS:  TEE  ||  SHORTS  ||  SHOES 

ON B:  SHIRT  ||  SHORTS  ||  SANDALS 

I had all these grand plans for summer with workbooks, piano lessons, daily projects and activities...but as we hit the last week of school, I just couldn't find the time to sit down and make a schedule for it all. After a week it never happened, and then another week, and then another. Now we're several weeks into school and we've done absolutely nothing that I planned.

But so far our summer has been one of our best ones yet. And I'm pretty sure it's because we don't have a schedule. We're just adventuring, going to the park, hitting up the beach, inviting over friends...and we don't have to plan it all out or get stressed we skipped or missed something. We just do it. We're just living.

And to keep up with all this adventuring, I'm making sure I put the boys in sturdy clothing. Old Navy has always been my go-to for clothing for my kids, and I love that I can buy things and know that they'll last through the rest of our summer and be ready for back to school.  And even better, I can get them on sale -- everything right now is 40% through tomorrow!

We have tons of Old Navy pieces we've purchased for the boys over the years, and unless they get stained, we can hand them down and they're practically in perfect condition.

Right now there are tons of great deals going on since everyone is heading back to school. Our school district gets out pretty late, so we still have over another month until school is back in session, but that isn't stopping me from picking up a few new things. Hop over and check out all their cute kids items! I'm obsessed with these plaid button downs and totally want these for Fos.

And they have tons of great new stuff in the women's section you can find right here -- I'm loving this top (I mean, white lace...are you surprised?), these super cute clogs, and this burnt orange dress.

INSTAGRAM ROUND-UP

I'm a little late in getting this one up this weekend, but there have been lots of outfits over on instagram this week so I had to share!

Also don't forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on, and is now open to the public! My favorites are right here.

TOP  ||  JEANS  ||  FLATS  ||  SIMILAR BAG

I love a good black and white outfit! This striped peplum is on sale during the anniversary sale and I love the statement it makes with a pair of black flats and white jeans


FLATS  ||  SHEEPSKIN RUG  via IKEA  ||  GRAY RUG

I picked up these blush flats during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I'm obsessed with them. Online they look more like nude, but in person they're a gorgeous blush. They will go with everything, and they're great for all seasons. 
Also tons of you are always asking about this rug. Here's the link!


Last week my best friend, Leanne, and I went downtown LA to celebrate our birthdays, which are four days apart. We both showed up wearing white jeans, black tops, brown sandals, and brown bags -- completely unplanned! We fabric shopped, and then got dressed up for a fancy dinner at the LA City Club on the 51st floor of one of the high rises. The views were incredible. I wore this dress


SIMILAR SNEAKERS (on sale for $19!)  ||  JEANS  

When your shoes match the floor, a picture must be taken. 



To extend my birthday celebrations, we headed down to Desert Springs Resort for a little weekend getaway. It's blazing hot, but we've had so much fun regardless. I'll be sharing photos and a little video on the blog later this week! 

HAT  ||  SIMILAR DRESS  ||  SANDALS  ||  SUNGLASSES

Day two at the pool was even hotter and the water was like a bathtub...not very refreshing! But the boys still loved it and we got away from all the weekend crowds by staying away from the main pool, and instead heading to the family pool which was perfect. 


SIMILAR TOP  ||  JEANS  ||  SANDALS  ||  SIMILAR BAG 

These sandals were great for the pool, and I'll definitely wear them to the beach when we're back home, but I also love how they make a statement with a simple summer outfit, like a white button down or a white summer dress.

THE BEST OF THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE (NOW OPEN TO EVERYONE!)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to everyone! There are tons of great pieces, and I've rounded up a bunch of my favorites below, all at amazing price points.

Things went so fast last week, and now everything should be restocked, but they'll go quickly again. So if you've had your eye on something the last week, hurry and snag it.

I showed a few pictures from the dressing room last week so you can see how things fit, and I also posted about my favorite kid items here, and my favorite outerwear pieces here, including this amazing leather jacket.

These are my favorite boots I bought (waiting anxiously for them to arrive!), and this is my favorite shirt I bought. I've already worn it like three times this week.
