I love a good sale, but sometimes even sale prices are out of my price range. I like things to be under $5o. I like them more under $25… Maybe I’m asking for too much, but I refuse to pay $100 for a pair of jeans or $45 for a top. So, with that being said, and with all the talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I thought I’d check it out and pick some things that I would actually buy that are within my price range. Everything I’m linking below is under $50, and lots of things are even under $25! I picked out everyday wear types of pieces that are good for wearing with jeans or just lounging in. There’s even a cute pair of PJ’s!
It’s not everyday that I do exciting blogger things like go on trips and go out to eat, but I actually did for the Fourth of July this year. My two friends and I stayed at Hotel NYLO Southside and had so much fun exploring the area and relaxing in the rooftop pool. The hotel has a modern, hipster vibe to it. But it’s super cozy at the same time. In the room, there’s tons of seating, which would great for a bachelorette party or girls’ night like we had. Plus, the pull out couch was by far the most comfortable couch I’ve ever slept on. (It’s the little things, right?) But the best part was the rooftop infinity pool and bar area. We had a great view all around us and it wasn’t too crowded considering the holiday.
For dinner, we decided to explore downtown Dallas. We ended up having dinner at Chop House Burger and I highly recommend the chicken friend chicken burger. It was so good and not too expensive! After dinner we decided to have a cocktail at The Crafty Irishman Public House. It was such a nice, not-too-crowded place to sit down. We ended up having a shot of moonshine (which I DO NOT recommend) and then a mixed drink to wash it down. We spent the evening in the pool having drinks and looking at the view. The next morning we ventured out to Bishop Arts and had breakfast at Jonathan’s. It’s a little place, but the food was so good and you get a lot for your money.
The whole trip was a lot of fun. If you’re looking for a small getaway you can do with your significant other or your girlfriends, the NYLO is a great option. There’s so much you can do and see and so many ways to just relax and enjoy Dallas.
Happy Monday, guys! Ok, Mondays aren’t always happy, but we can try to make them that way. My Mondays aren’t so bad because I get off work early so it eases me into the workweek a little bit. And today I wanted to share a few simple ways you can wear floral shorts. I love this pair that I found at Marshalls last summer. I actually didn’t start wearing them until about a month ago and now I feel like I haven’t taken them off! I couldn’t figure out what to wear with them for the longest time, but I started throwing on some different top and figured out that a lot of stuff actually goes with them.
The first way is with a loose-fitting cami and a bralette. I feel like this way is good for dressing up the shorts a little with the lace from the bra. If you add a long necklace and some wedge heels you could dress it up a little more.
This next way is just with a knotted muscle tank. It’s a casual look that you can easily throw on to be cute and comfy. I would probably add a choker to this look and maybe some dainty stack rings too.
Can you tell I’m a tee shirt girl? Again, this is a casual look with a plain tee that knots in the front. This top is a little bit longer and I think you could do a choker or a long necklace with this top to dress it up a little. I would wear sandals or my white Adidas with this look.
Last, but not least, I would wear a crop with these shorts. Denim is so popular right now and you’d be amazed at how much you can wear a denim crop top with! I think the little ruffle on this one helps dress up the look a bit and again, it’s very comfortable. I would do a dainty short necklace with this look and either wedge heels or some cute flat sandals!
I’ve basically had to train myself not to just reach for a tee shirt every day of my life. They used to be all I would wear, especially getting up early for classes and driving to school. Putting a little makeup on was more important than picking out a cute outfit in the morning. It seems like lately, tee shirts are getting cuter. That means I can wear one everyday, right? When I put on a tee, I make it unique by knotting it or tucking it in and adding a necklace, or pairing it with a kimono. There are so many ways to wear them. And they’re so comfortable too! I’ve done a little searching and found some cute options all under $30 from a couple of my favorite stores.
The Fourth of July is coming up and I have no idea what I’m wearing yet, but I’ve been looking at some options depending on what I’m doing this year. I’ll definitely be spending it with some friends somewhere. I think a red, white, and blue tank or tee is perfect for throwing on with some denim shorts for being comfortable, casual, and festive! If you’re looking for a more subtle look, a red, white, or blue dress or top would be perfect. Plus, you can always wear it again and not just on the fourth. Lastly, if you’re looking to not look too fourthed out (is that a word?) you can always just wear a festive bandana in your hair or carry a festive little purse!
