Two Feminine Summer Looks

Today I'm sharing not one, but T W O feminine dresses from Impressions.  Impressions is one of my favorite online boutiques to shop and I've been wearing their clothes for two years (this fall)!.... so yeah, you could say I'm a fan.  They carry so many cute brands and both of the dresses in today's post are from Merritt Clothing Label

I'm loving this first dress for the gorgeous floral print and fun little leg slit.  I don't typically wear strapless dresses so I like that this one is different from my typical style. This white dress is gorgeous and has a fun, low back. It's the perfect dress for brides, buttt since I'm not a bride, I kept this look playful with some bold earrings, and chunky heels. I've linked everything below AND both of these looks are on sale! Hope you loved these looks as much as I did!

Nordstrom Sale Favorites:

This jacket is amazing! I really wanted it last winter, but didn't want to bite the bullet with that price tag! I'm so glad it got marked down this year. 


This top is my FAVORITE item from the sale. It can be styled so many ways and it's super comfortable. The material is not sheer or see through and I felt sooo good in it!


Love the sleeves on this top, also comes in navy!


Wide leg pants are going to be huge this fall! I loved this pair and think they would look so cute with heels or loafers. I love this top is amazing as well and comes in a handful of colors (not sure that I would pair it with these pants though). 


If you buy one leather jacket for fall- this should be it! It's selling fast though!


BACK IN STOCK!! Woo! Okay this jacket is amazingggg and just got restocked!! 


Same top as above, but in navy. I love this look with white sneakers!

Touch of Lace

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s and I received the included bralettes as compensation. All opinions are my own :)

Hi friends! Today, I’m sharing three ways to add a touch of lace to your outfit. I’ve teamed up with Kohl’s to show you how I've incorporated bralettes into my summer looks.  I’ve been loving bralettes this summer because it’s such an easy way to add a feminine touch to any outfit (with very minimal effort).

This first outfit is something that I would wear to brunch with the girlfriends. I love wearing a casual white top and jeans but it’s fun to mix it up with a pop of color. I opted for this Juniors SO bralette in the color Plum Allure because the thicker straps and bright color were the perfect contrast to my white tank.

This second outfit is something I would wear out on a date night with my man. This top has a plunging neckline so I paired it with this Juniors SO High Neck Bralette. I love how the high neck style looks under a deep v neck top.

You can find me in this third outfit while I’m out perusing some shops in Venice and grabbing ice cream for a walk on the beach. It’s laid back and effortless but this Candie's Eyelash bralette looks so cute peeking out under my tank. I love this Palm Olive color because it goes with nearly everything in my closet. I know this will be one of my summer staples!

Okay guys, see how easy that is?! I’m totally loving how simple it is to incorporate lace into any look and it makes such a big difference! Dressed up or dressed down, these lace bralettes add a feminine touch or pop of color to any summer outfit. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you loved these styles as much as I did. Be sure to check out these looks at Kohl's.

I must say, this is one post that I've been O V E R the moon to share.  It's definitely one of my favorite collabs because I don't know what screams "summer in Los Angeles" more than ice cream and bikes on the beach.  It didn't feel right to live in Los Angeles without a pair of cool cruiser bikes.  We all know how horrid the traffic is here, yet how gorgeous the weather is every day. If you ask me, those are two good reasons to bike your heart out, and that's just what we've done with our Pure Cycles cruisers.  Any excuse we have to hop on the bike, we take.  Whether it's a quick trip to Trader Joe's, a longer ride to the beach, or an impulsive ice cream run (those happen a lot), life is just more fun on a bike.  Pure Cycles has bikes for any lifestyle- city, coaster, cruiser, commuter- you name it!   Not only do these Pure Cycles bikes have that laid back, cool factor, but they are also super comfortable and high quality- which is very important when it comes to bikes.  I've ridden my fair share of cheap, uncomfortable bikes and trust me, you end up paying for it. I love that these bikes combine quality and style- because let's face it, bikes make for some cute pictures ;) .   Thanks for stopping by friends! Be sure to check out the bikes I linked below- I know you're going to love them.

Nordstrom Sale Beauty Products

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially begins T O D A Y for Nordstrom card holders! If you don't have a card, no worries, you can shop the sale next week! 

Thursday July 13th – Thursday, July 20th:  early access for Nordstrom card holders

Friday, July 21st – Sunday, August 6th: NSale is open to all!

The thing that is different about this sale, is that they're not just marking down old products that didn't sell. They're marking down NEW items for fall or items that are usually full price all year round. These items will be marked down for the sale and go back to full price after. 

I think the best items to take advantage of during this sale are BEAUTY products. If you're going to buy them at some point during the year, you might as well buy them now because this is the lowest price you'll find! I've rounded up some of my favorite products from the sale below.

**These are ONLY products that I've personally used and love. You've probably seen me talk about them in my videos or other blog posts!

I've linked the Clarisonic and Foreo which are on sale as well. I use these every day and love them! I've done blog posts on them so if you wanted to learn more, just search for them on my home page or go to the Hair+ Beauty tab.  If you were wanting to buy them, now is the time because they're majorly marked down.

I also linked NEULASH which is on sale! I also use this every day and L O V E  it! This never goes on sale so I was super excited. It makes your eyelashes so long! (I've done a blog post on this as well if you want more info).  

And lastly, two of my fav candle brands are on sale so I threw those in as well!

Happy shopping! xx
