Wednesday Whereabouts + Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale


I think in our past life we were all fish…  Enjoying the pool last week at my friend Sam’s house.  She is the best hostess and always has the best snacks, pool toys and company!  I had a reader ask where this inflatable swan was from, when I posted it on Instagram last week.  I found it available here on major sale for $39 and on Amazon here; not sure if these are the same size as this one that’s more expensive, but I bet they are the same.
Striped Tote // Seahorse Tee (old, similar here) // Melvin Bead Necklaces // J.Crew Ikat Shorts // Effie’s Dress is by Samara and has sold out, but I love this one by Samara and it’s only $11.99!
On Thursday morning, we headed to the aquarium.  I was joking that Effie’s unamused face was in response to the fact that I won’t let her get a hedgehog.  She really does want one.  I think having Boozer the Boston is enough for us at this point.

Friday’s OOTD: Ruffle Striped Top (the back bow is even cuter than the front) // Shorts in Neon Flame // Sandals // Sunglasses // Cross Body (this color is sold out, but I love this blue color (it’s on sale!) and pink one)
Dress (on sale) // Necklace is an oldie but goodie from Anthropologie // Lipstick is Candy Yum-Yum
On Friday, we headed home and surprised my MIL and took her out to dinner.  We were celebrating her retirement, as she’s retiring in a few weeks after 34 years!

 On Saturday night, we headed up to Kanuga for our friends Jane and Charles’ wedding.  Met so many new friendly faces and seriously had the BEST time!  Enough that we had planned on staying for a little while, but ended up spending the night!  Oh, and don’t you love my headband Wheeler made for me to wear?  And she was serious that she wanted me to wear it the whole night…
…like when I showed her this picture the next day, she said, “But Mama, where is your headband?”  How stunning is Jane and her gorgeous dress??  Can you tell how much I love my blue DVF dress?  I think I’ve worn it to three events already this year, super comfortable too!
 Since we were still in town on Sunday, we attended our childhood church’s anniversary church service and picnic.  My father-in-law tends this huge garden for the church.  He was very proud to show it off to the children.
Growing up way too fast!

Of course by Monday, we were already back at the pool.  I had to run to the drugstore and grab some deodorant and when I turned around, Logan had these sunglasses on.  I asked him what he was doing, and he said “I want to look like daddy!”

In love with Effie’s Pineapple Shorts!  Wish they came in my size!

 I cracked the side of my iPhone Case last week.  Thankfully, my actual phone was okay but I needed a new case.  This flamingo one came in the mail yesterday and I LOVE it for summer!  Matches Effie’s new mermaid goggles perfectly!
 Lots of flying lessons yesterday!

Here are my Kate Spade Toucan Studs that I said were on sale on yesterday’s post.  Only $25!  And remember my bead necklace is only $11.98.  My TB Wallet is on sale and so is the Mara Hoffman cover-up!
And more importantly, Nordstrom just started their Half-Yearly Sale!  The sale runs until the 31st, but shop sooner for the best selection.  There are over 11,000 sale items in the women’s section alone.  That’s pretty amazing, but can be pretty overwhelming too.  So on Thursday and Friday, I’ll be sharing all of my favorites from Women, to Kids and Men!
UPDATE: As promised, here are my most favorite items from the Half-Yearly Sale that won’t last long!
**Click on images to shop or links below.**

DVF Camden Print Silk Top // Equipment Silk Shirtdress // Havaianas Slim Flop Flops ($14.72 right now, stock up) // Hunter Rain Boots // Paige ‘Bobbi’ Shorts (have these and love them; great fit and length, especially at only $59) // Jack Rogers Black Suede Thong Sandals // Kendra Scott Bracelet (would love to add this little cuff to my collection, especially now that it’s on sale) // Loeffler Randall Sandals // Rag & Bone Silk Floral Top // Sam Edelman Espadrille Wedge (I have these and love how classic of an espadrille they are. They run a little big, so size down.) // Vince Maxi Dress // Tory Burch Beaded Necklace (I’ve enjoyed wearing this necklace this season, and now it’s on sale!)
Today’s OOTD

Top (now on sale!) // Scarf (30% off with code: CARDLOVE) // Cutoffs (now on sale for $59!) // Sandals // Wrap Bracelet
Hope y’all are having a great week so far!
Happy Wednesday!

  1. This looks like such great time! The church garden is so beautiful! I am working on building mine up now. I added a few new planters, similar to those, this year and can't wait for all of my vegetables to grow. I have always had a hard time pairing my blue J.Crew seahorse shirt, but it looks so good with those shorts! I will have to check them out! Thanks for sharing!

    Have a great week!

  2. Sweet Wheeler and her headband she made for you. Precious! Do y'all go up to Kanuga for a week during summer guest period? We do, and have for years, and we LOVE it! If you don't, I highly recommend looking into it… it is so much fun for the kiddos and you parents too, with some extra special family time. Oh, and I'm sure you saw how absolutely gorgeous it is! Thanks for sharing, I always look forward to seeing what y'all have been up to the past week!!

    1. We've actually never visited Kanuga before until last weekend. My friend that was married there used to go a lot when she was little. I'll have to look into taking the kids sometime. Sounds fun! Thanks!!

  3. So fun, my sister has a swan float and it is just hilarious floating around in the pool! Wheeler's headband is so precious!
