My Friday Five + Five More Things About Me

what to wear fourth july party
 It's Friday!  And, the last day of June - how can that be?  I'm sharing my Friday Five, along with five more things about me.   Also, a little 4th of July style inspiration above.

This cold shoulder sweater that is only $12 on sale.

This adorable lemon print top that is only $15.

I love my camo jeans - and these are on sale for $35.

These leopard slides are $35.

FIVE MORE THINGS ABOUT ME
My friends on TBB are doing a Q + A on Monday - and since I don't typically post that day - I thought I would answer five of the questions today - and use it as an opportunity to promote the post. So, be sure to stop by TBB on Monday.  And, if you want to join in the fun on Monday - you can find the questions to answer here.

1. Favorite animal - dog or cat?  
Cat.  I had a couple of cats growing up - but the one that is probably the most special to me was the one I picked out from the Humane Society when I was in the third grade.  My dad took me to pick out a cat - and instead of picking the beautiful long haired one - I picked the sad looking one with a scratch on his head. I think I thought he needed a home.  My cat and I had similar personalities - he liked to be around people - and could tell when someone needed a friend (or had had a bad day) but he also liked his "me" time.  He lived a good, long life - and I had to put him to sleep the first year I was married.  It was one of the most difficult things to do.

2. Chick Flick, Action Movie or Documentary?
Chick Flick.  Some of my favorites are Becoming Jane, Young Victoria, along with your cheesy Christmas movies - like this one, which is one of my top picks.

Is anyone else excited that Hallmark is running Christmas in July starting the same time as the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  Here's the schedule.

I also like climbing documentaries.  I don't know why - because I do not think I would ever want to go climbing - but for some reason I love watching those beyond extreme conditions - and survival stories - like this one.  It was so difficult to watch - because of the extreme torment the guy went through.

3. Pepsi or Coke?
I really do not care which one as long as it is diet.  I prefer Coke most places, but sometimes Pepsi fountain pop tastes really good.  McDonald's Diet Coke is one of my favorites (along with their fries).

Question - do you call it pop, soda, or something else?  When I was at Parsons - I had a good friend from Chile - and it always made her laugh when I said I needed "a pop".  She didn't know what I was talking about.

4. Music or Talk Radio?
Oh, definitely Music.  I am a channel surfer - from my Sirius Channel 43 Backspin to Chanel 07 - the 70s station.  I have a very eclectic music taste.  On the other hand, my husband loves talk radio - and interviews.   I can tolerate it for a little bit - and it does help pass the time on a long drive - but news hour on NPR goes on too long for me.  I would rather be listening to music.

5. Swimming or Laying Out?
Laying out.  I will soak my feet - but I really do not like to swim.  When I was younger I would swim more, but I really do not like to be under the water.  The fact I nearly drowned when I was very young - impacts my enjoyment of swimming, I think.  Luckily, my dad saw me bobbing in the water -  jumped our pool fence to save me. It just took a matter of seconds for me to get away from my parents and jump in the pool because I thought I could swim - but I couldn't.  When I was younger I was so afraid of the water - I had to take private lessons because I was too scared to put my head under water.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview + Important Sale Information

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts in a little over two weeks.  And, I think this is one of the most anticipated sales of the year (probably even more than Black Friday).  Since the catalog just got released this week - I wanted to share a few things about the sale - and what I am excited to shop and what I have bought in the past - that I still wear today.

nordstrom anniversary one of kind sale

IMPORTANT SALE INFORMATION & DATES TO REMEMBER
The only reason I got a Nordstrom card was to have early access to the sale.  I did not like to wait to see what was on sale - only to find out the good stuff was already sold-out.  Plus, it is kind of fun to get to shop early.  (My mom and I usually make it our annual trip to Nordstrom - since the nearest store is a couple hours away.) Also, I got a Nordstrom Visa card - so I can easily use the card anywhere - plus I earn points (that turn in to spending dollars) every time I use the card at Nordstrom.

July 13 – Early Access Begins for all Nordstrom Cardholders (You can sing up for a card here.)
July 20 – Last Day of Early Access
July 21 – Anniversary Sale opens to the Public
August 6 – Last Day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

FALL TRENDS IN THE NORDSTROM SALE CATALOG
nordstrom anniversary sale fall trends 2017

The preview catalog is now online and available here to check out!  I have looked through the sale catalog a few times and my overall observation is that ruffles, velvet, layering, and asymmetrical hems are going to be big trends for the fall!

A FEW CLASSIC #NSALE PIECES I STILL WEAR
When I shop the Anniversary Sale, I try to find pieces that I know will last for a few years.  I think Nordstrom does a good job of highlighting the trends that will carry through a few seasons.  Here are a few things I picked up Nordstrom Anniversary Sale a few years ago - and that I still wear today.

Long Necklace: BaubleBar // Striped Sweater: Halogen (Similar here)

Ribbed Tank Dress for Less + Fashion Link Up

french connection ribbed midi dress

This ribbed tank dress for less would be a great summer staple piece for only $13. (And, could easily transition to fall by layering over a jacket or cardigan.) The entire budget-friendly outfit costs under $100 - with these chunky heel woven sandals that are only $25.  The splurge outfit also has some great deals - like these woven sandals by one of my favorite brands that are marked down 40%.

This budget summer outfit is something I would totally wear; however,  I just need an event or place to wear it.  I love getting dressed up – but the city I live in – just does not dress up like this – not even for a date night to a nicer restaurant. And, this look is not even that dressy - but I rarely see people dressed up in skirts or dresses for dinner, unless it is a special occassion.

Do you ever feel like that wear you live?  That if you were to dress-up for a date night – people might look at you strangely and wonder – why is she so dressed up?

Save Money on Four Summer Trends



SAVE ON SUMMER TRENDS
1. Red Floral Dress: H&M // 2. Red Floral Dress: Topshop
3. Striped Espadrilles: H&M // 4. Striped Espadrilles: Castaner
5. Striped Dress: H&M // 6. Striped Dress: Topshop
7. Red Slides: H&M  // 8. Red Slides: Salvatore Ferragamo

I have found some great save and splurge options on four summer trends - floral and striped dresses, espadrilles, and slides. A few of the splurge items could really be grouped under "save" like the red floral dress that is marked down 50%.  And, those really cute red bow slides are only $18!

Also, the other week I talked about my new haircut (along with some really cute swimsuits under $20).  Well, I am continuing my "new and improved" beauty updates. The other day I got a balayage treatment done to my hair.  Since I have been coloring my hair, I no longer have my natural highlights.  I knew I did not want something as obvious as highlights - so I decided to give this a try.  And, I am so happy with how it turned out. It lighted up my hair - and gave it a more natural color variation like I used to have before I colored my hair.  And, the best part is that I only need to have it done once or twice a year - because it grows out naturally.  I know I need to share some pictures.  I will try to shoot some style photos once the weather cools down, and it isn't raining.

Striped Shirt + Red Jean Look for Summer



SHOP THE LOOK
1. Tie Wrap Stripe Shirt: Topshop // 2. Red Jeans: Citizens of Humanity (40% off)
3. Shoe: Topshop // 4. Ring: Kate Spade New York

I love how these floral shoes tie the entire look together.  Also, pairing stripes with red can work anytime this summer, not just on holidays.

In non-fashion related news, I spent the weekend painting "my office".  It needed to be painted desperately.  I am pleasantly surprised how well the color turned out.  That is usually the biggest struggle.  Now, I am in the process of ordering a new desk and I can't decide between this one or this one, along with a new rug and a bookcase to keep all my design stuff. Also, while I was painting, I could not figure out why the room kept getting hotter and hotter, even though I kept turning down the A/C . Come to find out, the A/C had stopped working and was just blowing air - by the time I finished the room was 80 degrees!
