My Hawks: Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

It's one of my favorite times of the year! The Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale is going on now through June 4.

I know it can be overwhelming to go through all the sale items, so I hawked my favorites that I added to my cart to help you out! 

Sale's can be tricky because everything is so cheap! Go for items that you have had your eye on for a while, or something that will take you into the following season (summer or fall). That way, when you get home, you will feel much better about your purchases! 

Here is my Nordstrom sale boutique! I recommend snatching these items up soon because they are going fast! 

Have fun and make good choices!

Vacation style

Sorry for the long delay, but my vacation looks are finally here! I received so many comments on my posts about my outfits in Cabo, so wanted to share these looks with you. I am also sharing some summer dresses that I am currently hawking.

When I go on vacation during anytime of the year, I tend to always overpack. To avoid this, I try to lay out my look for each day (even if it's a repeat - which is perfectly OK). I find that this narrows down your picks and makes you feel so much more confident each day of vacation. Not to mention all the time and space you save in your suitcase :) 

Below are some dresses that I am currently hawking, as well as my eight days of looks while on vacation (I packed more, but I will spare you!)

One location (Cabo), eight days of looks:

Day One 

Day Two

Day Three

Day Four

Day Five

Day Six

Day Seven 

Day Eight

What fun vacations to do you have planned?! I am always looking for fun new places to explore and would love some recommendations!

Mastering casual

Let's face it, looking casual and effortless takes a little bit of, well... effort. I find that if you have the right pieces in your closet you can easily master this "art" of looking casually
put-together all the time. 

Here are a few basics you will need:

1. Your favorite jeans
Any wash, color or style. Stick to some that you feel good in, because when you feel good, you look good! I love a light denim or a destroyed pair. Darker washes tend to look a little more dressy, so I save those for my "night out" looks. 

2. Your favorite tee or top 
Go for a neutral color. I like white because it goes with anything and always brightens up the outfit. 

3. A casual jacket
My go-to is a moto jacket. But I find it's best if the jacket has a little embellishment on it, such as bell sleeves, a fun print or some just something classic like a jean jacket. 

4. A good pair of flats

It's all about comfort. Grab those cute sandals or flats and you are set!

I hope this helps - give it a try this weekend when you are heading out to brunch for Mother's Day:)

Get my full look on today's post here:

Have a wonderful weekend!

Pink Ruffles

I am back! I want to apologize for the long break in my posts! I took some much needed time off and tried to give myself a nice break from the blog (although still posted on Instagram), so that I could hit the refresh button and really focus on what I want to share with all of you. 

I started this blog to show you all my "hawks" or finds and felt like I needed to revisit that intention. So stay tuned and keep an eye out for some fresh new posts that will include everything from my beauty routine (skin and makeup) to styling tips and tricks. I think it's important to learn how to style your other clothes that are sitting in your closet and pair with the new pieces that you find. 

I hope you all continue to follow along and enjoy! 

To bring it back to today's post... You know I LOVE a good t-shirt. When I saw this one from Current/Elliott, I couldn't resist and ended up buying it in two colors and a dress version. I am a huge believer that if you find something you love, you should buy it in every color. I am not much of a pink girl, but the darker shade screamed spring and goes perfectly with some light denim jeans or a cute floral pencil skirt for all you office girls. 

Happy May!
