It's that time of year again! When everyone gets annoyed with bloggers that post about the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale LOL. As usual, I'm only going to post about it once because truly I believe that once is enough and I don't want to annoy anyone. I went to the sale in-store last night and stocked up on so many cute things but I have to admit, the sale isn't as good as it was last time but it's still worth checking out. Remember, it ends on June 5! Here's what I'm loving and even what I got: 

Valentino Logo Script Bracelet - This one's on my wishlist but it's so beautiful and unique and defiantly a statement piece! Perfect if you want to splurge on a designer item from the sale.

Tiered Chiffon Skirt - Almost everyday in Texas has been sunny and in the 90s and I've been looking everywhere for lightweight pieces that can still be worn to the office like this skirt. Plus it's so feminine and pretty!

Nordy Girl Sweatshirt - I've been a huge fan of Nordstrom for years but this is actually the first time that I live close by a Nordstrom and probably go there at least 1-2x a week! ha so this sweatshirt is the perfect way to show my love for it.

Kendra Scott Convertible Pendent Necklace - There's so many gorgeous Kendra Scott pieces on sale so I had to stock up with this convertible pendent necklace which you can adjust so it's shorter (works well if you wear v-necks!)

White Peplum Tank - I've been looking everywhere for a peplum tank like this with the bow straps and I had to grab this one which is only $25 and also available in black and yellow!

Tory Burch Gold Metallic Shoulder Bag - I love metallics for the summer and this one is gorgeous and big enough to carry all of your essentials yet small enough to bring with you wherever you go.

Kendra Scott Kristen Earrings - You guys know how much I love a statement earring and I always seem to gravitate towards aqua or teal ones cause they just look so pretty with a little white or black dress!

Badgley Mischka Embellished Peep Toe Pumps - I adore the Badgley Mischka shoe line and the way they embellish all of their shoes, just stunning! I already this pair but I'm thinking about grabbing these since it's such a great deal and would look great for all of the weddings I'm going to this summer.

Badgley Mischka Embellished Sneakers - I couldn't help but include these sneakers as well cause they're just so stunning and the perfect way to dress up when you're wearing a t-shirt and jeans. Also would be a great "something blue" gift for a bride-to-be!

What are you loving from the Nordstrom sale? Or do you just get annoyed by the whole thing? LOL, I don't mind hearing the truth!

Dressing up for an office job can be difficult when you're young cause it seems like everything they have in stores is just too...outdated and plain. Or is that just me?! On top of it, the weather has been in the 90s almost every day here in Dallas while the inside of the office is freezing so I never know what to wear. Lately, my go-to work look has been a linen blazer (got this one from the J. Crew Factory when they were doing a BOGO deal but I linked a similar one below) which is perfect hot days yet keeps you warm enough inside the office. I love the ruffle detail which gives it a feminine twist.

As for the jeans, luckily I work at a start-up so the dress code is business casual and you're allowed to wear jeans as long as they're not ripped so I've been alternating between black, navy blue, and white jeans along with a pair of wedges which is comfortable enough to walk in everyday lol.

What's your go-to work look? I'd love to know!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day weekend! My Mom and I went to Dolce Riveria for brunch yesterday and if you're following me on Instagram then you might've noticed all the Stories that I was putting up. I just can't help it - the place was so chic and I still can't believe I live in a city where there's so many gorgeous places to go to and explore. Should I do more posts on things to do in Dallas? Lately I find myself struggling to balance both my blog and a full time job on top of everything else but what else is new? lol. Luckily, I was on my computer yesterday and found this old shoot that I never even had time to publish before and suddenly felt re-inspired. This shoot was taken when I had visited The Statler a month ago and my friend and I had fallen in love with the view at the rooftop bar (there's so many amazing ones in downtown Dallas!) and just had to do a shoot even though it was 90 degrees. Naturally, it was super windy and at times I felt ridiculous shooting in that kind of weather but it was also so much fun!

I think one of the reasons why I get uninspired with the blog from time to time is because I focus so much on the business side of it that I forget that I had originally started it 4 years ago because I wanted to do something creative and fun in my life. I think this is going to be something that I want to focus on more because it easily reflects in blog photos - they just seem to turn out better when it's clear that you're enjoying what you're doing.

Anyways onto the outfit, I got this top last year at J. Crew and they're still selling it but in other colors and patterns. It's super lightweight and I have a thing for one shoulder tops which just looks so chic during the summertime. I paired it with my white denim skirt and my go-to wooden bag which is a dupe of Cult Gaia (but only $40!) and these brown wedges which are super comfortable to walk in. What's your go-to outfit for the summertime? Any summer essentials that you can't live without? I'd love to know!
