Draper James x Charleston + Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Details

A few weeks ago, my friends and I had a fun photo shoot downtown on Rainbow Row!  We’re all wearing the cutest tees by Draper James.  If you’re not familiar with the line, it’s the label founded by Reese Witherspoon and oozes Southern charm.  Her line was recently picked up by Nordstrom too!  To see more pics of the inside of her flagship store, head back to this post when I visited Nashville a few months ago.

How cute are the sayings on all our tees? // Tell Me Something Good // Cherry on Top (on sale!) // What Would Dolly Do? // Hello Sunshine

If you’re in town this weekend and have some free time, head over to Wonder Works at Freshfields today from 10-12 or tomorrow at the Mount Pleasant location from 11-1.  Catherine Farley, author of Mimi Explores Sullivan’s Island will be there to sign copies of her new children’s book.  There will also be drawings for “Explore with Mimi” headlamps and activities for the kids.  Be sure and check out the back cover.  You may recognize a review from a familiar person.

Nordstrom’s HUGE Anniversary Sale is coming next week (if you have early access) and I’m so excited!  Cannot wait to check out what all will be marked down this year.  If you’re not familiar with the sale, it is Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year!  Most of the products that will be marked down will be brand new items.  The prices will go back up on August 6th.  Be sure and check back here daily where I’ll be sharing all of my favorites from every section; women’s, men’s, kids, beauty, you name it!  Trust me, it’s pretty overwhelming when you see how much there is marked down out there, but I’ll narrow down your search with the top picks, so stay tuned!

If there’s one thing I can recommend, it’s get early access to the sale.  Early Access starts next week on the 13th, but you’ll have to wait until July 21st if you don’t have it.  Lots of items sell out pretty quickly on the first day of the early access sale, so you’ll miss it if you don’t have early access.  Yes, sometimes some of the items are restocked, but you never know which ones.  Better be safe than sorry though, and be ready to shop the sale early.  Here’s an example: The first day of the early access sale, my favorite Tory Burch flip flops were majorly marked down.  They sold out within two hours and were never restocked.  To earn early access to the sale, head over here for details.  And if anything, get the card during the sale to gain early access and you can always cancel it when the sale is over.  I know a few people that do that.  Pretty smart.

I’ve had the best week spending time with my family and my nieces and nephews!  Excited that I get to do it all again next week with Lanier’s side of the family at Pawley’s!  I’m sure getting my baby fix and soaking up every minute.  The kids are loving getting to spend so much time with their cousins too.  But it’s never long enough!  I wore this cover-up above yesterday.  It’s on sale, but selling out quickly.  For fit, it’s true to size.  I’m wearing a small. // Bikini Top // Sunnies

I hope y’all have an awesome weekend!  I wanted to mention that I’ve been using this new hairdryer for a few weeks now and it’s amazing!  I didn’t want to jump to any conclusions until I tried it a few times, but I seriously am in love.  The almost 1,000 reviews on this thing are pretty true.  It dries my hair so much faster and it protects it so much better.  If you’re in need of a new one, you should give this one a try or add it to your wish list!

TGIF, Y’all!
