It's that glorious time of year! Back to school time! While I personally may not be going back to college (I wish I could go back every day) I love to use this time to shop for new desk supplies! I try to take this time to organize all of my receipts, bills, tax forms, etc. It's a good time of year to have that "half way check" with all of your paperwork. Sprucing up your desk space can be the encouragement you need to study more or get that paper written a bit faster. For all you college kids it's the best way to personalize your study space. Having cute pens and a fresh, new planner is the best way to keep track of exams, due dates, meetings, and your friends' birthdays! Don't forget to add a fun pillow to your chair and a bright lamp.

This is going to be a new series on the blog for Fall so let me know if there are any "back to school" ideas you want to see! Book bags? Fall outfits? Let me know :)
When I was in Charleston two weeks ago we spent the first couple of days walking around, exploring, eating, drinking, and just enjoying each others company. The majority of the conference is spent in heels with big clutches and drool-worthy jewelry so I knew I wanted to bring an easy to wear dress. It was scorching hot and humid after all... I appear to be having a bit of an olive moment so when I found this dress at H&M a couple of weeks before Charleston I instantly gravitated towards it. Have you ever purchased something specifically for a trip but not been able to resist? Yeah... this dress y'all. I think I wore it at least twice a week before I packed it in my suitcase to the Holy City. And to top it all off? My girlfriends also loved it so much that they went out and got one for themselves!! When you combine easy cotton, pockets, a great hemline and comfy fit you've got a win-win situation happening! I paired it with my new favorite leather mini purse and some super cute pom-pom sandals (that have great cushiony soles).
I think I pulled together a pretty smart looking tourist outfit here! Do you think anyone knew I was a blogger? ;) Maybe the camera gave it away? Hehe... I'll be recapping my trip and sharing the rest of my outfits soon. Also, stay tuned for a really fun giveaway!!
I've been unpacking for what seems like months now... oh wait, I've actually been unpacking for two weeks! Between traveling and living out of boxes it's been difficult to find what I want to wear and I'm feeling less than creative. So, to try and get myself out of this fashion rut and to bring y'all a little end of summer inspiration (because who wants to go on a huge summer clothes spree now?!) I'm sharing some of my favorite throw-on-and-go summer outfits!
Y'all already know I love white... white pants in the summer are most girls go-to so why not add in a deep back white halter? Give yourself more of a chance to catch a breeze ;) I have been shopping at Tobi for years now and they always have a great selection of going out clothes. Plus, all of their new arrivals are 30% off for the first week! This halter is on sale for $27 right now too! I may need to snag it in black... This summer has certainly been a whirlwind - the past two weeks especially! After my move into a studio in the city I instantly jetted off to Charleston for The Blog Societies conference! Now, I'm finally able to finish this post while watching cable (go Team USA!) and having my internet spot in and out. The joys of moving, ya know?! I still have a lot of catching up to do on Southern Anchors and life. But, I'm slowly getting it all put together and I have some great outfits that were shot while in Charleston. Can't wait to share everything - let me know if you have any suggestions or want to see something in particular.
What comes with sales? GIVEAWAYS! Yep, at the bottom of this post is an incredible giveaway to win some money to shop the final weeks of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I've compiled my favorites from what's available right now! Still so many cozy looking sweaters, gorgeous accessories, stylish shoes, and wear right now handbags! What have you picked up? :)
What would you buy if you won this giveaway? Let me know below!
The title of this post sums up why everyone is STILL talking about the Nordstrom sale. Because it's a steal... as much as we don't want summer to end the temperatures will finally start to drop. So it's time to think into the future (for just until August 8th) and at least have something fun and new waiting for you when it hits the 70s!
During all of this Nordstrom Sale madness (clothing post here and home decor post here) it's hard to remember that ummm hey, it's still summer time! Fall is my favorite season but I love wearing white even more... especially little white dresses. Pair it with sunset inspired accessories and hot pink clutch to really drive home the summer vibe. Calling all brides - NOW is the time to buy all the white your heart desires ;) because it's about to not be in season! Even though I think that rule is ridiculous... I will wear white (including my white jeans) all Fall long.
