floral dress & summertime bliss

My Outfit Details: DRESS Floral Midi Dress // NECKLACE Dainty Gold Necklace // SHOES Suede Nude Heels 

Whew, as of last week Thursday, this teacher is officially done with summer school. I enjoy teaching summer school because it is extra mulla ($$$) and it helps me remain in a routine--which is what I thrive off of! 

That being said, I have been LOVING the freedom that I have had these past few days. I've been catching up on chores, enjoying some Netflix time, and working out twice a day in preparation for our upcoming Hawaiian vacation. I've also had a ton of time to think and rest. The other day, I came across a quote that has really stuck with me these past few days. I'm going to drop it down below in hopes that it inspires you too!

It has probably been well over a year since I have done my last Instagram Round-Up. This series used to be a regular on The Teacup of Style, and I'm not sure why I stopped doing them! 


















































Have a lovely weekend! :)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide 2019

July 12, 2019

Every year, I dedicate a round-up to all of my Nordstrom Anniversary picks. With every item, I will  share sizing information and details as to why I purchased it. Here we go! :) 



Sizing: Size down at least one size. I typically wear a medium and I purchased a small in this. 
Price: sale $44.90 // after sale $68.00
Reason for Purchasing: This is a classic sweater that is so cozy. It looks cute dressed down with jeans, and it will look adorable dressed up with a pair of leather leggings and heeled booties. Plus, I'm never one to say no for something that is bubblegum pink. 



Sizing: Size down at least one size. I typically wear a medium and I purchased a small in this. 
Price: sale $44.90 // after sale $68.00
Reason for Purchasing: Why fix what isn't broken? I loved this classic sweater so much that I bought it twice! Camel is such a wonderful fall color, and I can just picture this sweater paired with a floppy hat and a pair of fall booties. 

Sizing: Size down at least one size. The Nordstrom employee who was helping me shop let me know that these really stretch out. She said that when you first put them on, they should be tighter because they have a band around back (making them so comfy!) that will stretch as they are worn. 
Price: sale $44.90 // after sale $68.00
Reason for Purchasing: I was all about the "ab-solution" part of these jeans. I love anything that hold me in comfortably. They are honestly so comfy! These jeans were also at a price point that fit within my budget. 



Sizing: TTS 
Price: sale $29.90 // after sale $49.00
Reason for Purchasing: This is something that I can wear now and transition into fall. It will look great with shorts now and under a cardigan later. 

Sizing: TTS 
Price: sale $31.90 // after sale $49.00
Reason for Purchasing: I always like to pick up a couple of cardigans during this sale. I love the length of this one and that is it not too thick. It will be a great transition piece. 



Sizing: TTS 
Price: sale $49.90 // after sale $79.00
Reason for Purchasing: Probably the softest sweater I have ever put on before. It was so soft that I knew that I needed to have it. 



Sizing: TTS 
Price: sale $31.90 // after sale $49.00
Reason for Purchasing: This sweater is another super soft piece. If you haven't noticed, I'm also not one to say no to a cute animal print pattern. I figured it would look cute styled with an athleisure look as well.  



Sizing: TTS 
Price: sale $25.90 // after sale $39.00
Reason for Purchasing: I absolutely fell in love with the color of this workout top. It is a nice material, but still lightweight enough for a workout. I ran 4 miles in it and did an arm circut during this workout! 


I also put in a HUGE order online. Below are all of the pieces I ordered but do not have pictures in.

Happy Shopping!

eyelet maxi dress & ulta beauty haul

July 5, 2019









My Outfit Details: DRESS Blue Eyelet Maxi Dress (sold out, similar linked) (c/o) // EARRINGS Gold & White Studded Earrings // HEADBAND White & Floral Patterned Knotted Headband // SHOES Nude Block Heels (similar linked) 


Oh boy, do I just love a good maxi dress. I'm completely smitten by this navy blue eyelet maxi dress. I can already picture it packed away in a suitcase for a dreamy destination, or seeing it swaying the night away on a wedding dance floor. The thicker straps and cinched in waist truly make it beyond flattering. 


This week, I also shared an Ulta Haul on my Instagram stories. Here are all of the items I picked up :) 


Some of the items I picked up from Ulta are some of my tried & true favorites. For instance, this is my fourth time picking up this Lancome mascara and I've been using the Clinque Moisturizer for about two years now. Also, the REDKEN products are also some of my favs and this is my second time picking up the Living Proof Triple Detox Shampoo to help prevent my hair from any hard water damage. The rest of the items are some new finds and I am excited to give them a try. There are links to all of the Ulta beauty haul items below.
