Sew Cute Style Nordstrom Anniversary Guide



The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! I've been shopping this sale since I was in elementary school. We would always go to pick out new shoes and clothes for the school year. I became more serious about the sale in middle school and high school, and now it is a staple for me! But now I have a Nordstrom card and am in control of my own purchases. Which can be dangerous. 

To be honest I wasn't super impressed with the sale this year. I try to be 100% honest on here so I wanted to say the sale isn't as great as previous years. Previously they've had a ton of amazing fall clothing pieces. This year it was very meh. I ordered a few clothing pieces to try but I will most likely return. Main things I focused on this year were beauty and workout clothing. I needed a new pair of sneakers, replenish a few beauty essentials, then get fresh pairs of Zella leggings. 

My overall strategy with the sale is to purchase a ton then return. Especially this year it seems the store availability is not great. So I recommend ordering everything online! You can always go in store to browse. But you don't have to rely on store stock for your all your items. Above I've linked all of my favorite sale finds. These are all items I either purchased or think are truly worth noting. A few major highlights: 

SUPERGOOP | Supergoop is my go-to sunscreen. This stuff is one of two brands that doesn't make me burn to a crisp. I always talk about sun protection and right now is a great time to stock up on Supergoop products! 

ZELLA | Zella is by far my favorite workout brand. Lululemon who? Save yourself some coin and pick up some Zella pieces instead. Their leggings are my favorite out there. I only buy them during the sale because the are under $40. I also own this workout top and it is perfect for the gym! Ordered it in an additional color during this sale. 

CLOUD SNEAKERS | I've never tried this brand, but I am giving this pair of sneakers a try! I've seen these all over the place and have heard good things. I will report back once I get them in. 

DRY BAR | I swear by this dry shampoo from Dry Bar. It is the only dry shampoo that I will use. My hair gets super greasy and this will extend my wash 1-2 days longer! 

BAREFOOT DREAMS | I know everyone is probably sick of hearing about Barefoot Dreams but I love their stuff! As I'm typing this I am using a Barefoot Dreams blanket. I have three scattered across the apartment. They are so warm and so comfy. I've washed them multiple times and they hold up really nice. 10/10 worth the hype. But I also recommend this lower price point blanket for a budget friendly option!

What are your must have items from the sale? Let me know below!

Sale of the Week: Gal Meets Glam Dresses IN STOCK!

GUYS this is HUGE! I found Gal Meets Glam dresses in stock and ON SALE. These are my favorite dresses for events, weddings, life, everything. I constantly get questions on if I'm selling my Gal Meets Glam pieces. My answer is always no because I will honestly be keeping these dresses long term. The quality is amazing and she is no longer selling them. So this is a hidden gem! Limited sizing is available. But there are pieces in 00, 0, 2, 10, 14, 18, and a few other sizes. Be sure to filter by size to see what is available in your size range. I wear a 00 or 0 for reference.

Graduation Gift Ideas


It is graduation season! Today I'm rounding up gift ideas for the graduate. I love the idea of gifting timeless pieces that can set them up for adulthood. A Barbour jacket is the perfect long term investment piece for any graduate. This Beadnell style will never go out of style. Travel items are also a great gift idea. This Stoney Clover Duffle can be customized with their initials, favorite color, and more. The possibilities are endless. Another great idea is timeless accessories that will be great for the office. A pair of classic ballet flatschic sunnies, or a sophisticated headband come to mind.

I've been super into looking at home decor recently! I'd say my style is Grandmillenial meets Midcentury Modern. Which I feel like neither of those things sound like they go together. But I promise they do! Hopefully I will get to decorate a home very soon. Until then I'm going to start sharing some more home finds with you all. So many people I know are buying houses right now. It's the perfect time to find some inspiration for your home!

OOTD: So this is love

So this is love.... Feeling all of the Cinderella vibes in this look!

Boxlunch sent me this adorable watch in honor of their Get Some Give Back program. If you didn't already know Boxlunch donates meals with every purchase! It's great to know that your purchase is going to a great cause. One of the reasons why I love Boxlunch. 

But for real, this watch is adorable. Growing up I loved Cinderella's mice. Gus Gus was my favorite! This watch features her mice Jac and Gus plus Cinderella twirling in her dress. Complete with a measuring tape watch strap this watch has so many adorable details. 

To channel my inner Cinderella I wore my blue Hill House nap dress. This dress is stunning. I've worn it a few times and I can't get enough of it. Let's normalize re-wearing dresses and outfits! I feel sometimes there is so much pressure for influencers and bloggers to constantly share new looks, clothing, and more. But, I'd rather have quality pieces I LOVE then pieces I wear once then re-sell. I often get asked if I'm selling certain pieces or brands. However I really don't get rid of things easily. Chances are if it is live on my feed I'm holding onto it for at least a few years.  

I completed my Cinderella look with this pair of Disney x ALDO shoes. The collection is a bit old but I'm obsessed with them. I'm so glad I got them when I did. I think they will be really fun to wear for future wedding events!

Where it's from: 
Dress: Hill House 
Shoes: Disney x ALDO (old)
Watch: *gifted* Boxlunch
Headband: Lele Sadoughi 
Bracelets: Miranda Frye, Hermes

OOTD: Make it pink, make it blue


Make it pink, make it blue! Or gender reveal party dress... you decide. Either way this dress is super cute! I got it on major sale a while back so I was happy for the find. But, I found it still available in XS-M. Normally I am not a maxi dress girl but I had to give this one a try. TBH it is a little long for me. But we make it work. 

This print is just too fun! I love the pink and blue paired with the rose gold stars. It's such a bright print it makes a great vacation dress. I wore this dress on my trip to Arizona in April. April in Arizona isn't super hot so it was perfect for the weather. 

I paired it with one of my all time favorite headbands which is currently in stock. This Lele Sadoughi is so good. It's the perfect pop of pink with clear beads. It is a great option if you are newer to embellished headbands because they beads are super subtle. 

Where it's from: 
Dress: Buddy Love
Clutch: Stoney Clover Lane (similar)
Clutch Patches: Stoney Clover Lane
Headband: Lele Sadoughi
Sandals: Jack Rogers 
Location: Scottsdale, AZ

OOTD: eShakti Dress


Cute and customized! eShakti reached out to me to test and review their clothing pieces. Guys... I am so impressed! I am always looking for new sites to get pretty dresses and pieces from. I think I found a gold mine! 

eShakti is super unique because you can customize any of their pieces. You can shorten hems, change necklines, straps, you name it. This is perfect for me because I am petite and lengths are usually always off for me. You input your size, height, and any changes you want to make before checkout. Then your items come personalized to you. This is also great if you have certain areas you need extra coverage, less coverage, whatever the case may be you can edit the piece to fit your specifications!

For this dress I could have changed the straps, length, and a few other features. I love how this style turned out! I also got a floral print dress that I changed up the length to be more petite friendly. 

I styled this dress with a ton of pretty feminine accessories. A gold ballet flat is the perfect staple to pair with feminine dresses and skirts. This Neely Chloe bag is soooo cute. Such a good purchase! It is from the Gal Meets Glam collaboration they did recently. Then of course no outfit is complete without a Lele Sadoughi pearl headband. Cute butterfly studs from Made by Maddie Designs complete the look. 

Where it's from: 
Dress: eShakti
Shoes: Tory Burch 
Headband: Lele Sadoughi
Bag: Neely Chloe 
Earrings: Made by Maddie Designs 

Be sure to check out eShakti! They have dresses for any occasion + a ton of other gorgeous pieces. Let me know if you give them a try!
