Knit Top/Satin Skirt


Mid-July while the weather is heating up and summer starts in full swing, retailers begin issue out their fall pieces.  Do you know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?  Well, I know it because I like shopping and get an alert about it.  This year, Nordstrom ran for 3 weeks and it seemed every fashion bloggers talking about the Anniversary Sale and their picks.   People were snatching up fall pieces at about 40% discount.  My wallet, of course, didn’t allow me to follow suit, but it was so tempting.

Cold Shoulder Flare


I love vacationing in August because I get to scoop up nice dresses for less than half of the original prices.  It is a time that they are more affordable to me.  Of course, there are drawbacks like limited sizes and final sales, so I think twice about my picks.

“Life always begins with one step outside of your comfort zone.”

We had our family vacation when the kids ended their school year.  Once a year, we tried to have a getaway with our parents and my sister’s family so that the boys can play with their cousins and grandparents can enjoy quality times with the grandchildren.

Polka Dot and Sunflower


“There is never a wrong time for a polka dot.”- Marc Jacobs.

I felt like a French girl.  This H&M’s dress could be last season.  I got it on the clearance rack in store for $10.  This pair of platform sandals I picked up at Target for $17.99.  Neither of them are available online, but you can find similar styles ranging in prices at the end of this post.
