Mood to Shop: Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale - What I Bought!

Happy Monday Friends & Happy #AfterPartySale Day! It's official!! The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is currently underway and there are so many good deals right now.  The sale started early this morning at 8am EST on the Lilly Pulitzer website and it will end on promptly on Wednesday at 11:59pm.  

I've mentioned this before, but in case you missed it. This is best time to stock up on fun & quirky Lilly prints and any pieces that you've had your eye on for months because you can save some money.  I mean let's face it, most Lilly Pulitzer pieces are pretty expensive for an average person.  However, during this sale you can save anywhere from 40% to almost 60% off of your favorite tops, pants, dresses and cute accessories. 

Like last year, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale started in stores over the weekend.  So I was able to go in and try on a few pieces before I made my final purchases.  I ended up buying a few things like the

Marlowe Striped T-Shirt Dress, the Dinah Crewneck Sweater, the Franci Dress, the Bowen Jumpsuit and the Steffi Stretch Shift Dress.  Here is a quick post of some of the items that I tried on in the store yesterday and some of the pieces that I purchased online this morning.

Moody Picks: Fall Favorites Under $100

Happy Friday Friends! My favorite season of the year is just around the corner and I can't wait to finally wear all of my new fall pieces. I don't know about you guys but cooler weather, chunky sweaters, football season pumpkin spice everything really gets me excited for the fall season. Unfortunately for me, it's going to be a little while before things start cool down here in Florida. So in the meantime, I end up doing a lot of window shopping and outfit planning until then.

Check out all of my picks and some extra finds below & let me know what you think. Are you guys loving all of the mustard, rust and brown colors this season?

Current Mood – Anthropologie (Top 5)

Sharing a quick post of some of my favorites items from Anthropologie this month. I haven't posted one of these posts in a while, but I thought I would bring it back.  I’m seriously loving everything in Anthropologie right now.  The colors and patterns are all just perfect for fall.  There are so many beautiful dresses, tunics and jumpsuits that I know that you're going to love too.  In my previous posts I would pick out my top 5 items that caught my eye and that was hard to do for this month.  I would love to add so much more to my closet, but here's my short list for the month of August that I can’t live without.  What are some of your must-have items for the month?  Let me know in the comments below.

Moody Picks: Sephora VIB & Rouge Summer Bonus Sale


Happy Friday Friends!!!  The Sephora VIB & Rouge Summer Bonus Sale is currently underway and as always, it's a good time to stock up and save big. The sale is available to all Rouge and VIB members with the following discounts listed below:

ROUGE - Rouge member will receive 20% off their purchase with code: SUMMERSAVE

VIB - VIB members will receive 15% off their purchase with code: SUMMERSAVE

Do you guys plan to buy anything from this Summer Bonus Sale? I haven’t bought anything yet, but I need to pick up a few things to restock before the sale ends on Tuesday, August 27th.  As I mentioned in previous posts, I usually stock up on my beauty favorites or try out new products that others are raving about.  This is the time to check out best selling skincare lines like Drunk Elephant, Tatcha, Sunday Riley and even La Mer.

In today's post, I'm sharing my top 5 must-haves for makeup & skincare along with a few other beauty favorites below:

1. Drunk Elephant has two of my favorite products - the TLC Sukuri Babyfacial
 and Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil.  I’ve been using Drunk Elephant products over the past year and I'm pretty hooked. I've used all of the products in the collection, but I'll continue to repurchase these two for a while.  The Sukuri Babyfacial is an amazing mask that has cleared up blemishes, shrunk my pores and brightened my skin.  It's definitely worth the extra money if you can afford to spend it.  The Virgin Marula Oil is pure marula oil that will work wonder on your skin.  I use this one every night!

2. Nars Natural Radiant Long-Wear Foundation - This is my current favorite because it is a perfect build able full-coverage foundation. It goes on super smooth and doesn't look cakey.  I wear shade: Cadiz.

3. Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer
 - I love this primer so much right now.  It has been my go-to product when I decide to wear makeup. It lays well under my foundation and gives my skin a smooth and flawless matte finish.

4. Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector - One of my favorite products for my two-step process to combat my dark circles.  This peachy/pink corrector balances out the blue tones under my eyes and creates a base so my concealer can its job.

Happy Friday Friends and Happy Anniversary Sale! 

Now the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public, I wanted to put together a quick post with some cute finds that are both still in stock and under $50. I’m really glad I did this because I never noticed these leopard heels or this Swiss dot blouse available in several colors. And both of these are so cute.  I know so many of you are hoping that they restock some of the best sellers from last week.  I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed because there are a few more things that I would like to grab for myself. 

Let me know what are some key items that you’re looking for today, so I can keep an eye out for you.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 - My Top 5 Picks & Try-on Haul

Good morning friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here for all cardholders and you finally get to shop the sale you’ve been hearing about for a few weeks now! This is the best time to stock up on closet staples and items that you will need during the fall season.  My favorite part of the sale is that you save a bunch of money on some items that never go on sale like any of the Barefoot Dreams throws and cardigans and Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. The only thing that I don’t love about the sale is that so many item sell out super FAST! So if you see something that catches your eye or if you’re on the fence about an item, then just grab it now and return it later!

Anyways, I wanted to put together a quick post that would be both helpful and informative for you instead of listing a bunch of items that you just don’t need. Below is a list of my top picks from the sale. These are items that will last you more than just the season and you can wear some of them now and transition well into fall/winter.  I have some of these pieces from last year and I'm very happy to say that I didn't need to buy too many items this year.  

Here are my TOP 5 PICKS from the sale: 

1. Pleated Midi Skirt - A beautiful staple piece that is very well made and fits perfectly (already sold out, but I found a cute amazon dupe HERE).

2. Barefoot Dreams In the Wild Throw - This throw never goes on sale, so this is the best time to buy one.  It's super soft, comfortable and worth the splurge.  I just bought one yesterday for the first time because I've alway wanted one.

3. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings - These are the best leggings out there and definitely the most popular.  These leggings rarely go on sale, so this is the best time to buy them. I bought my first pair last year and they really are worth the money.  They suck you in just at the right places.

4. Leopard Cardigan - I bought this sweater earlier this year and it sold out then.  So I was pretty happy to see them bring it back for the sale This will sell out pretty quickly during the sale because it's comfortable, the print is perfect and the price is under $50.

5. Booties - Every blogger has raved about these booties since the sale got started.  I ordered myself a pair because it looks like a really well made bootie.  I love the cut out style and the heel is pretty reasonable.  It comes in several other colors and even a couple snakeskin prints.  I'm pretty sure it will sell out as well.

Here are a few more pieces that I'm loving right now:

Next up is the try-on haul.  Yesterday, I stopped by the Nordstrom store at St. Johns Town Center to shop and I put together a fun styling session for you all.  I found a few items that I love and created a few outfits around those specific pieces.  I wanted to share you how you could wear certain pieces serval ways to get more bang for your buck.  Unfortunately my store doesn’t have a huge inventory, but I was able to create a few different looks with the items that were available. I will also upload this try-on haul via video on Instagram Stories and save to my Highlights, so you can view them when they expire. Let’s dive in to today’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale try-on haul!

My Size Reference: I’m 5’7 and I typically wear size 6/28 jeans, small or mediums in tops and dresses.

I picked out this skirt because of the print of course and because of its versatility.  This is a skirt that you can definitely wear now and then continue to add layers to take you into the fall and winter season. I'm wearing a small in the skirt and it fits true to size.

Cardigan (small) / Lace Trim Cami (small) / Snakeskin Trim Wool Hat (sold out, but linking similar one here) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)

Chambray Shirt (small) / Lace Trim Cami (small) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)

Wool Blend Cardigan (small) / Stripe V-Neck Tee (small) / Pleated Skirt (small) (sold out, but linking a similar one here)

I missed out on these jeans last year, so I had to grab them.  I wanted to get a really good pair of jeans during the sale and this one does not disappoint.  It fits true to size - I'm wearing a 28 in these.  I have heard that it stretches out pretty easily and that you need to size down.  So if you're worried about that, then size down.  I love the style of these jeans - the high waist and button front is right up my alley.  They are also under $100.




This lace cami will probably sell out pretty quickly.  It's such a cute piece that you can wear alone with jeans or under a cardigan or blazer for work.  It comes in several colors and has adjustable straps. The price point is also good since it's only $25. I'm wearing a small in the camisole.
