NORDSTROM HALF-YEARLY SALE PICKS

Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale runs now through June 6th! This sale features limited-time discounts of up to 50% off women’s, men’s, kids + home products–aka ALL the things. I’m especially loving this sale right now because my closet feels like it needs a refresh after quarantine. That said, I’m all about an AFFORDABLE refresh with a lot of basics. From Levis and Ray Ban to Adidas and Madewell, here are some of my fave sales picks (all clickable above!).

HOW TO SURVIVE YOUR FIRST WEEKEND ALONE WITH BABY

This was my first mommy-daughter weekend entirely on my own since Naiya was born.  Phil was out of town on a business trip and it was the first time we didn’t plan for family or friends to come and help us out.  Let’s face it: 8-months in, it was time for me to bite the bullet!  I’m lucky I made it this far. That said, I was completely anxious that I wouldn’t be able to juggle it all without Phil. 

HOW TO CURATE A CAPSULE WARDROBE

Now that I’m a mom, getting ready in the morning has become a much bigger challenge.  I used to get up slowly, leisurely pick out my outfit of the day, go on a long run and shower.  Those were the days…and those days are long gone.  The more mobile Naiya is getting, the less time I have to pick out outfits and the less time I have to make myself look presentable (let alone shower!). Thankfully, over the past few weeks, I think I’ve found the secret to getting dressed quickly: curating a “capsule collection.”  Hello, game changer!

MOM & BABY: ALL PINK EVERYTHING

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was convinced I was having a boy.  Even when our ultra sound technician and OB confirmed that we were having a girl, I still couldn’t believe it.  It wasn’t until Naiya finally came out that I realized it was time to start accessorizing away.  I hadn’t bought a thing for her yet at that point and I couldn’t wait to start.  Naiya’s style has since run the gamut from completely gender-neutral all the way to full-out girly girl. Today, we went with the latter and accessorized with all pink everything because I couldn’t help myself.  Sharing a mom and baby look with you today that I’m already excited to look back on someday.
