Cucumber of the Sea Cocktail + Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Faves + an OOTD

Last week, while the kiddos were at camp, my girlfriend and I headed out to Leon’s Oyster Shop for lunch.  Love this place so much!
My favorite is their Fried Oyster Sandwich. So good!
Aside from today’s featured cocktail, their Bloody Mary is pretty tasty too.
Chargrilled oysters!  Delicious!  // Gigi New York Crossbody (currently on sale, almost $100 off!)
When you spend $250+ at Gigi New York this weekend, receive a FREE navy all-in-one bag (a $125 value)!  This includes all sale items!
From the laid back environment to the delicious cocktails and oysters, I know I’ll be back to visit again soon.  Today’s cocktail is one off the menu at Leon’s.  Super refreshing for this time of year.
Cucumber of the Sea
Pinot Grigio
Pilsner Urquell
Honey Cucumber
Any cocktail with cucumber in the summer is always a winner in my book!
I’ve been so excited to share my favorites in Home with y’all from the sale!  Nordstrom has always had a great selection, but this year they’ve definitely stepped it up a notch.  Very recently they’ve started carrying so many more lines, especially rugs.  It’s been hard to narrow down my shopping cart!  I just ordered this rug for our sun room.
For those with early access, today’s your last day to shop the sale before it opens to the public.

Alright all of you without Nordstrom cards are probably over these sale pick posts, but at least you’re more prepared to shop, come tomorrow morning, right?  Remember that many popular items will sell out quickly, if they haven’t already.  As for restocking items, Nordstrom doesn’t usually restock at a certain time, but as returns occur, inventory will be changed.  So if you’ve got a favorite that may be sold out in your size, I’d check back every so often to see if it comes available again.

Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns, so don’t feel bad for placing more than one order.  I’ve definitely done this over the past week.  I honestly think it’s safer to do it that way.  That way you order your favorites right away, and then you can peruse around for the next few weeks and see if there’s anything else you’d like to order.  And Nordstrom makes it extremely easy to return products.  Your package comes with a shipping label sticker, so there’s nothing for you to have to print off.  Extremely easy returns and exchanges.

Also, I’ll be posting my purchases and favorites during the sale event, until it ends early August.  Make sure to keep checking back.  I’ll be including the fit on many of the pieces, as they arrive in the mail.  The first of these fit guide posts will be on Monday.  If anything, make sure and check back tomorrow.  I’ll be including a recap of all of my favorites from this past week, so you won’t have to click around different posts to find my favorite sale items from different categories.  They’ll all be organized in one place for you.

Cheers to ice cream and sunny weather!  We finally got a pool day here yesterday!  We had sunshine for the most part, but it did pour on us at one point.  Since it didn’t thunder, the kids loved swimming in the rain.  It quickly subsided, so we got some bonus swim time afterward.
I’ve had some of you ask when Lilly’s big sale will be this year.  I’m not sure of the exact date yet, but you know I’ll be let you know as soon as I find out!
Lilly Pulitzer Essie Top // Walsh Short (I haven’t tried on a pair of these in awhile, but love them!  The print is pretty perfect too! For fit, they run a tad bit small, I went up a size.) // Wicker Crossbody // Sunnies // Glitter Mini Studs in Opal (currently $20.90) // Lip is Candy Yum Yum
Lanier and I are headed out tonight to the new restaurant in Charleston, La Farfalle, opening soon!  Can’t wait to sample Chef Toscano’s tasty Italian menu.  
I’m also going to attempt to style my hair with this Beach Waver I ordered from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  I’m super nervous that my hair is going to get stuck in it, so wish me luck!
Don’t forget that the HUGE Anniversary Sale starts bright and early, so be sure and check here as you start shopping.  Everything will be organized, so you can simply click on your favorites from different categories to shop!
Cheers to Thursday!

  1. How long does it normally take to get the $10 rewards cash? I have emailed them several times and they say it will be emailed before Friday and I have yet to receive it. I signed up after you mentioned it on your blog.

  2. I never comment on anything, but have to say my husband and I went to Charleston a few weeks ago and your blog was helpful on places to go and eat at! We went to Leon's for dinner one night and it was SO good 🙂

  3. I don't normally comment either, but I just thought this might be helpful for gals in the future who don't have a Nordstrom card, like me:) I've been following your posts for sale items, and when you click on them, there is the option to add an item to your wishlist…so that's what I did with everything I saw during the early access that I wanted! When the sale opened to everyone on Friday, I just went to my wishlist and shopped from there! Also, some items had sold out, which the wishlist will tell you, but that has also been the easy way for me to jump back on ( yesterday morning!) and quickly see on my wishlist that items are available again! I would have missed the stuff I wanted otherwise!
