Delight of the Day 7/31

 Today’s Delight of the Day is sure to please all Lilly lovers out there. The Madeline Sunglasses are adorable, and at only $38, totally affordable! They come in three different prints – Hotty Pink First Impression (my forever favorite), Turquoise Let’s Cha Cha, and Shorely Blue Mini Party Favors. I’m thinking of ordering a few extras as gifts (Christmas, birthdays, initiation, graduation…you get the point!) Which pattern is your favorite?

 I’m also super excited to announce the winner of The Page Girls giveaway! Congratulations, Zach!

The J.Crew Puffer Vest

Last year, J.Crew Factory introduced its Herringbone Puffer Vest. It was gone in a few days. I’ve seen them on ebay for $300+. Insanity! Didn’t get your hands on one? No worries. In true Factory form, they’re recoiling looks from last year – the beloved puffer, $98, included. Truthfully, this isn’t my style (I think it looks adorable from far away, but, up close, it kinda reminds me of animal print – ick), but I know SO many of you love it, so I thought I’d share 🙂 Plus, I do really like these looks from Southern Curls & Pearls and Kelly in the City.

My Croakies Dilemma

I’ve mentioned many times how much I support croakies. They’re seriously practical (just wait until you lose your brand new Ray-Bans in the ocean), and they’re a great way to express your personality. I have several pairs, but I would like to acquire a patriotic pair prior to summer’s end. I’ve narrowed it down to three choices, and I need your help!

There are the Old Glory Sunglass Straps (Tuckernuck, $23), the American Flag Needlepoint Sunglass Straps (Tucker Blair, $45) and the Stars and Stripes SHADESTRAPS (Knot Clothing, $20). How do I decide?!

Gilt City + Birchbox

For starters, if you’re not already a member of Gilt, please proceed to sign up NOW. Gilt has some of the best steals on clothing and accessories for men and women, plus awesome prices on home goods. However, my favorite feature of Gilt is their Gilty City feature. You may recall my BluePrint Cleanse; thanks to Gilt City, I was able to afford it!

Once you’re a member, or if you already are a member, please click here. Yep. A one-year subscription to Birchbox for $99, and it comes with a $25 credit. That’s essentially $74 for a subscription (almost 50% off)! I did a Birchbox trial for two months, and, while I liked it, I just couldn’t justify the price. However, at $8.25 a month, who could say no?

Plus, while you’re there, BluePrint Cleanse is on sale again! It’s never too late to prep for your summer vacation 😉

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Part II

It’s day two of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and hopefully you haven’t already cleared out your bank account, because I found so many more goodies for you!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’ve been counting down to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for days, and it’s finally here tomorrow! It’s one of the BIGGEST sales of the year, and it’s unique in that you get fall goodies on sale – not this summer’s leftovers. Since fall tends to be the best style season, it’s needless to say that this sale is one of my absolute favorites. I’ve added all of these to my cart in hopes that The Boy notices and orders everything (I kid, I kid). What are you hoping to score?

Delight of the Day 7/15

Love Jack Rogers? You’ll love today’s Delight of the Day. The geniuses over at Jack Rogers just released a new iPhone case, $40, and it’s perfection. I’m ordering this so that, come winter – when my toes are bundled up in wool socks and Bean Boots, I’ll have a cute reminder that Navajo season is just around the corner!

Delight of the Day 7/10

Whilst browsing the internet this morning, I stumbled upon today’s Delight of the Day – the Skies Are Blue Nautical Stripe Dress, $69.99, from Piperlime. I adore this dress for evening soirees this summer. Pair it with some fun wedges, and you’ll be the envy of the party. (Side note: this seriously reminds me of a Lilly dress, at a fraction of the cost!)
