As a little girl, I can still remember going to Nordstrom with my parents in Tysons Corner. It was the cream of the crop- a perfect shopping experience that my parents loved and passed down to me. I have fond memories of dining in the Nordstrom Café with my parents, back to school shopping with my grandma, and visits to the beautiful salon shoes to ogle over designer shoes with my mom. I’ve been a Nordstrom shopper literally my entire life and I still consider Nordstrom to be one of my favorite places to shop.

While I love a visit to Nordstrom, as the time has changed, shopping has evolved and online shopping at Nordstrom has become a habit for me. In college when onlin...

Long gone are the days of crazy high stilettos unless I know not a lot of walking and standing is involved. With party season in full swing, I wanted to share a post with cute, practical party shoes that you can wear all night without the crippling feeling of your feet hurting and throbbing by the end of the night.

I'm also sharing some tips in picking shoes since my girl Kelly-Lynne of The Low Low Style recently replied to one of my IG story questions asking for tips on how to survive the night in heels! Read up below to see my picks (mostly from Nordstrom as most of my shoes are from here- and some of these I...

Wow guys, where did the summer go? Seriously. I feel like its been a weird summer. For one, I haven't been to the beach once since the official start of summer, and I likely won't make it to one before the official end of summer (le sigh). Second, things have been crazy! I'm not sure if I've shared the news, but in June I began working with a manager, Alexandra Boos, and we have completely hit the ground running. While I've been doing a ton of content sharing over on Instagram, I found that I've been focusing most of my energy on social platforms over my blog. 

If there's one thing thats been for sure this summer, though, is I've been totally guilty of repeating looks....

It’s been 6 months since I have started using the Trunk Club styling service and all I have to say about it, is I’m obsessed.

Trunk Club is a personal styling service and falls under the Nordstrom brand. My experience using Trunk Club so far has been incredible for a few reasons. The first, is the personalized styling. My stylist, Kirby, has been amazing in getting to know my style and sends me unique pieces and has introduced me to new brands I wouldn’t have otherwise found. Second, I love how easy it is to order a Trunk and you truly have a voice in what you receive. For instance, you can choose how often you receive Trunks at home, you can request certain items or re...

Does it seem early to be writing a guide guide? Yes. But, I already started with my weekly holiday style round ups as of Monday, and when thinking of a post for this week to go with that theme, I decided to compile my first gift guide for a few reasons. The first, because stores are already gearing up for the holidays; two, because I was browsing Nordstrom and saw these picks and wanted them all for myself; and three-  because I'm trying to be more organized this year and not be a last minute shopper - I normally wait for the last minute and then I'm flustered. SO, in and effort to be more organized, I'm going to promote early shopping for stress free holidays, wi...
