Lexi and Chase's Style File: Toddler Jackets

Toddler Jersey-Lined Raincoat $25 (Regularly $49.95)

A top question that I get is where I shop for kids clothes... I get a lot of great deals at Gap (I also have their card, it's worth it!). It's harder as Lexi gets older to find unisex jackets to pass down to Chase, but this yellow rain jacket is a classic and I love the striped lining.

Toddler Sherpa Vest $22 (Regularly $44.95)

I also ordered Chase this vest. A similar style sold out last year and it took me awhile to find one in store. Patagonia vibes for better price.

Happy Shopping!

Looking Back: Chase's First Birthday

We are approaching Chase's 2nd birthday (just a few weeks away!) and I realized that I never posted pictures from this little guy's first birthday celebration. It seems like yesterday he dug his little fingers in that Funfetti cake with Lexi right by his side. 

Love you, Mr. Chase!

2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Edit

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty section at the SoNo Collection last week. The beauty deals can't be beat! For once I stuck to the plan... we'll see what happens. Below is what I came home with along with a few of my other favorite products that are part of the sale. There are also several sets and candles that make great gifts. The sale opens to all cardholders this Thursday and everyone next week. For those of you that are local, there are some great in store events coming up that I'll highlight next week. 

This is one of my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty items that I have bought for consecutive years. I keep this in our master bathroom and both Ted and I use it. It's such a great deal. When we run out I just can't justify the price so always wait for this sale. I've also bought the Jumbo Grapefruit Bath & Shower Liquid Body Cleanser in the past for us to share. 

I have a few favorite dry shampoos... this one is always in rotation! I also love the Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo that comes in this set in the sale along with another favorite product.

I absolutely love this scent. Recent studies have changed my stance on aluminum-based antiperspirants. I used this a long time ago and happy to have it back. I keep one in my bag for when I'm on the go.

Nécessaire Body Duo $35 ($50 value)

I've had several friends recommend this brand to me... so I am excited to give it a try. I typically don't buy many new things at this sale but this was a great deal. Appears to have already sold out online but maybe you'll have luck in store.

Happy shopping, beauties!

2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Activewear Edit

Happy Friday, friends! After I wrapped up work today I went to Nordstrom at the SoNo Collection in Norwalk for my first of many Anniversary Sale shopping trips. I always say I'm just going to get a few things...  and it escalates. Quickly. I'll take you along for the shopping ride over the next week.

The sale is currently open to certain Nordstrom cardholders ... you can get all the details here and when you can shop. I've been building up my wishlist online.


First things first: activewear. The only place I consistently go outside of my house is Pilates.... I hit the studio early in the morning and usually just keep my gear on while I work from home. And let's be honest, even if I don't workout it's what I'm wearing 99.9% of the time now. I have found that these items always sell out early... so get your hands on them while you can. Zella, Alo and Sweaty Betty were my highlights.

I came home with this zip up. Such a great staple for $49.90 ($89.00 after sale)! I have a similar style from lululemon and it's time for a replacement.

I went back and forth on this one but ultimately decided on the black zip up because of the pockets. However, I loveeee this color and if you are a runner it would be perfect for the elements and it has a fold away hood. Zella leggings always sell out at these sales. There are some great patterns this year.

Decisions, decisions. I would have come home with these if they had my size, so will be ordering online. The side pocket for my phone is a must have for me! I almost don't think I can buy a pair without one now.

This cropped tank is another great basic to pair with high waist leggings that comes in several colors for $24.90 ($39.00 after sale).

This sweatshirt was so cozy and I love the blue shade. I could see myself living in this all fall and winter.

I was wearing my Nike 270s today... they are so comfortable. Major restraint not getting this new color today, part of the sale. They would be perfect for fall!

Nike 270s as seen on Olivia Palermo, for some style inspo! She has been spotted in several different colorways. Get this look with a Dudley Stephens fleece turtleneckjoggers from the NSale, and neoprene tote

Sizing between brands (I'm 5'2"):
lululemon: leggings 4/tops 6, 7/8 it about full length
Zella: leggings S/tops S
Sweaty Betty: leggings XS/tops S

My activewear picks:

Would love to hear what you're eyeing for the sale. More to come!
