A weekly series dedicated to everything from life, travel and fashion Q&A, sale finds, weekend updates, sneak peeks and more!
A little travel, life and fashion Q&A. I want to answer them ALL.
What is your day job?
If you’re new around these parts, I work full-time for Perry Ellis as a Merchandiser for Collection product (aka wholesale). I wrote a post about how I manage two full-time jobs, but didn’t really explain too much in depth about what I do. To be honest, no day is EVER the same at my day job. I spend my days checking in with my Design teams, making sure Sales is prepped for any meetings they have, attending fittings with our fit model, creating new marketing (labels/hangtags) without Marketing team, and approving/rejecting bulk fabrics for production. I’m lucky enough to work in a position where I get to be involved in the creation of a collection from start to finish: From design to development to production.
What are your thoughts on the Nordstrom sale? I just started using affiliate programs and I don’t know how to go about the sale posts.
Are we talking my honest thoughts? If so, I’m kind of over the Nordstrom sale. It gives me so much anxiety thinking about posting Fall product in July. I don’t like the idea of round ups (although they do work well for some people) and my readers don’t really respond to them. Of course I want to post about it, but I can’t see myself really pushing out Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content. I wrote this post last year about my tips for navigating through the sale and what you should be doing before the sale begins.
If you have anything you’d specifically like to see about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, please let me know in the comment section below! I think I created a game plan after thinking things through a bit more — so please reach out!
Here’s what I’m loving, buying and eyeing!
LOVING these AT shoes! The pink ones are on major sale…so I picked them up in addition to the cognac.
This is my favorite romper (at the moment). It’s SO soft and perfect for hot summer days/nights!
I think these denim shorts are what I’ve been looking for!
- J.Crew Factory (extra 50% off sale till 7.9 — CODE: EXTRA50) These striped seersucker pants are a summer staple!
- Ann Taylor (40% off tops till 7.9 — CODE: WEARNOW) Stock up on your new favorite summer tops this weekend!
- Club Monaco (up to 60% off sale w/an additional 30% off — NO CODE NEEDED) Club Monaco is one of my favorite places to shop when I have some extra $$$ to spend. Can’t resist this sale — click through below to see what’s currently in my shopping cart!
A little recap on readers’ favorite posts from the past few days and weeks.
This is a MAJOR throwback to almost a year ago: I shared a few things I learned when I turned 24. PS: I’m turning 25 on July 25 — SO SOON!
It’s getting hot out there! Check out this post to see what the best fabrics are for summer months!
Weekend plans, anyone?
This was the LONGEST SHORT WEEK EVER! Anyone else feel that way? I feel like I’ve had way too much to do in the three days I’ve been back to work and no time to do it. With a four and a half day vacation, I had A LOT of work pop up while I was out because our overseas offices were still working. The grind never stops, huh?!
On top of that, I feel like I have SO much great content to share with you guys over the next few weeks. I’ve realized that you guys are really into reading about actual topics instead of just more information about what I’m wearing. This makes me SO happy! I’ve always loved writing, so being able to share this type of passion with you is so rewarding!
I haven’t seen my parents in over a week, so Matt and I are heading to Staten Island to hang with them! I’m also hoping my sister and brother-in-law will let me hang at their pool on Sunday;)
CHAMPAGNE TO GO
Ah, the jet set life…where to next?
I 100% have the travel bug. I already have trips planned for July (Nashville), August (Hamptons & hopefully Nantucket), and October (blogger trip, deets coming soon!!!). Now I just need a great place to go to in September — and I’d LOVE suggestions!
A few of my favorite blog posts (and articles) from this week!
Natalie looks amazing in this two piece set!
It’s Julia’s birthday! Make sure to give this mama-to-be some love!
