J’aime Montréal {Travel Guide}

July 31, 2017

Montreal was so beautiful I honestly can’t say it enough! We travelled there for David’s birthday because it is his favorite city-I had never been. He had been quite a few times and always talked about how gorgeous and fun Montreal was {so true!} so I couldn’t wait to go and explore!

Even though David had visited a few times before most of the places we explored he’d never been. It’s just a testament to how much there is to see. Even in the 4 days we were there we didn’t hit everything we wanted to, but that just means we’ll definitely be returning!

So here is our guide to Eats & Drinks, Things to Do, and What to Wear Montreal edition!

What did we BUY? [Nordstrom Anniversary Sale]

July 19, 2017

Now that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is about to be LIVE for everyone [yaaaayy!] we wanted to show you some of the pieces we bought and highly recommend. Along with some of the pieces we’ll still be picking up for ourselves and as gifts for others!

Here is our first post with all of the sale details you need to know.

During the Early Access part of the sale items were selling out fast! Like we said before if you keep checking back sizes will start to restock and items will come back. That’s what I’m doing for these Adidas cuties! Fingers crossed they come back in stock in my size because everywhere else is selling them for full price.

Here are the items we bought during Early Access and highly recommend: 

jeans try on jacket and jeans

I’m in love with this jacket! Definitely an amazing deal and I was sold on the gold hardware immediately. I’m wearing a medium and it fits perfectly with enough room for a sweater underneath.

The jeans are also a great buy! They are under $60 and I love the dark denim with slight distressing. They claim to be mid-rise but I feel they are definitely a higher rise which I looooove.

I honestly feel that no girl can ever have too many jeans.  I love TopShop so these super distressed jeans caught my eye on the Nordstrom Sale!  As soon as I got them, I immediately fell in love.  I love that they are distressed all over-not just the knee area, they are high waisted, and real thick denim with the right amount of stretch!

Like I said jeans, jeans, and more JEANS!!  Seriously, I wear jeans EVERY single day (even to work), so having several quality options (without rips/distress) is super important.  BLANKNYC makes super nice, not too pricey, quality denim.  These jeans are dark wash (not too dark where they look like a jegging) but can be dressed up or down.  They are skinny fit and touch right below the ankle with the perfect amount of stretch!  The tag says mid-rise butttt they feel more like high rise.  Definitely worth every penny!

leggings lookNow I was always doubtful of these leggings because even on sale they are a little pricey for me {$35.90}. I’m normally a Marshalls girl for leggings but the reviews were always sooo amazing. I have to say I really like them! They are super high waisted and flattering and don’t ride down which is a definite bonus.

I definitely recommend them if you’re an avid leggings wearer like myself!

Here are some items we are definitely still going to purchase:

The anniversary sale runs through August 6th and then prices go up! We definitely recommend shopping items you know you’ll need once the cool weather kicks in. Here in Florida I will not be throwing that leather jacket on for a while haha but I seriously can’t wait to wear it!

If you’re not shopping for yourself there are a few gift items that would be great to pick up for upcoming Holidays, which sounds insane [the holidays?!] but smart haha! 

Here are a few gifties we saw that we’ll definitely be purchasing as well:

We are early gift shoppers-when we see a good deal we buy the item and save it for that special someone. Our Mom’s birthday is in October and we already have her gift haha.

Let us know if you have any questions about the sale or products we’ve purchased/mentioned!

Summer Style How To // Bralettes

All 3 Bralette Looks

Bralettes are a staple piece in our wardrobes. They can be styled so many different ways and are super comfortable! Their pretty, delicate details can amp up a normal look while still being functional.


Why do we love bralettes so much?

-they can be worn with low cut tops or dresses

-add a delicate, girly vibe to a look

-they can be shown off in a backless top or dress

-they can be worn under a sheer top

-look great with off the shoulder tops and sweaters

-take the place of an actual bra


Now a lot of ladies have asked us how can a bralette take the place of an actual bra?

If you’re like us, on the smaller chested side of life, a bralette can offer just the right amount of coverage and support. If you are in need of more support we have found so many amazing options at Kohl’s for you!

Their bralette selection is serious!

Guide to shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary SALE

July 14, 2017

So as you know everyone and their mother has been talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary sale the past couple of weeks.

Toted as the “Superbowl of Shopping” we were always a bit skeptical. Now because Tee and I looove a good deal we are pretty critical on what constitues an amazing sale. We are all about quality over quantity which is why we love shopping Marshalls and TJ Maxx. You aren’t getting cheap or irrelevent brands or styles-you’re scoring nice quality pieces at an amazing price!

Last year was the first year I really shopped the sale and I was pleasantly surprised! There were some really affordable pieces and the items did go back to a higher price point after the sale was over.

One of my favorite pairs of Topshop Jeans were scored during the sale last year and were such an amazing deal!

sale dates

A couple of tips I learned from last years sale that may be helpful to you this year:

Tip #1

Keep checking back. If you love something and it sells out quickly there will most likely be more that come in stock or people will return items! I bookmark the page for the item I love and check back a couple times a day.

Tip #2

You can always return! One thing I love about ordering or shopping in Nordstrom is that the return process is so simple. So if you have doubts order the piece and make sure you return it if you don’t love it when it arrives.

Tip #3

Think ahead. Tee and I always shop for Fall and Winter pieces during the Summer regardless of the store. It is seriously the best time to scoop these types of items {cardigans, coats, boots, scarves} up because in a couple of months you’ll need them and they will be double or triple the price.

So don’t fret that you won’t wear it for a little while. Put it in your closet and you’ll be so happy to have the pieces in a couple of months.

Tip #4

Do not buy something just because it is on sale!!!

Now this can be very hard for us to even do but it is important. Just because something is on sale and there is the element of scarcity don’t buy it. Buy pieces you know you’ll wear and love. During sales like this it’s hard not to go crazy with all the hype.

We each rifled through the sale and came up with some of our favorite picks! We will keep them updated based on the changing inventory for you.
