The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here and it’s officially my favorite event of summer!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • The reason why people hype up this sale is that it’s not just full old stuff that didn’t sell; all their new merchandise and pre-fall  merchandise is on sale too!
  • For cardholders, the sale starts today, July 13th, and goes until July 20th. On July 21st the sale opens for everyone and continues until August 6th.

Here’s what to buy:

  • This is the perfect time to finally upgrade to that longchamp bag you’ve been lusting over for the past year, or those over the knee boots you don’t know how you’ve been living without. Every year I use this sale as a chance to get some of those luxury items I’ve been eyeing, like this Michele watch. I feel 1000x better getting them on sale.
  • I also tend to stock up on basics. Tees, underwear, workout leggings… it’s a win when you get the stuff you were already going to get anyway on sale.

Happy shopping!

SIDESMILE STYLE SIMPLY STYLIST MIAMI POP UP WITH COPPERTONE-6

A couple of weekends ago, I was able to attend the Simply Stylist x Coppertone pop up in Miami. It was a scorcher of a day, and I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to be trying out some new SPF. Living in such a sunny tropical place like Miami, I am always excited to hear about new sunblock products that can help protect me from the rays. I was particularly intrigued by Coppertone’s new Clearly Sheer Whipped formula because it felt like nothing I’d ever used before. It’s completely rich and creamy and absorbed super quickly, but it also was very moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft but not sticky. I love that it is also water resistant for 80 minutes, because who goes to the beach with out getting in the water, am I right?

Christian and I had such an amazing week in the Bahamas celebrating the fourth of july with our friends. I really needed the time to recharge and get away from it all. As always, I tried to document my outfits for y’all, but that wasn’t my main priority on this particular trip.  I was trying to be present in the moment and not so focused on social media, so I apologize for all the mirror selfies haha.

PS. how cool is it that my Raden suitcase can actually charge my iPhone??

Our first night in the Bahamas we had dinner the Dune at the One and Only, which was amazing! I definitely want to go back and stay there!


This was definitely my go to bag during this trip. I loved that I could fit all the essentials, but I wasn’t lugging around a big tote. Also these aviators are only $14!!

How gorgeous was our view of Atlantis? I loved getting to watch the people go by on the rapid river!

I don’t like to travel with a ton of jewelry on vacation, so I try to pick versatile pieces that go with everything like these floral sequin earrings and this necklace.
