Weekend Recap: Palm Springs + Nordstrom Sale

I captioned my Sunday evening instagram photo this: “It was a good weekend: we ate good eats, drank good dranks, didn’t care too much about wearing shoes or washing hair, and relaxed a little too.” And that’s pretty much how our weekend retreat to Palm Springs played out. We went into the weekend craving no agenda, and we committed ourselves to doing nothing. We left the resort once, to pick up a few groceries, and enjoyed lounging by the pool, grabbing margaritas, and cooking in with good wine and conversation. While the weeks can get chaotic, with things to do and places to be, it’s always nice to be able to recharge over the weekend. And in light of all the horrible news in the world lately, it is nice to be reminded of the blessings I have right in front of me. I hope you all have a great week!

It’s back to clean eating + working out after those margaritas, chips, and other various indulgences. I’m thinking of mixing things up a little bit by doing this bum workout. TJ and I are also starting an experiment by drinking Kombucha everyday for the next 14 days. We’ve heard about how amazing it is for gut health, so we’re going to try it out… I’ll report back and let you know!

I also thought I would share with you a few more products that I think are pretty great from the Nordstrom Sale:

Dresses: I bought this white dress, and absolutely love it for these summer days and think it would transition beautifully into fall when paired with this camel leather jacket. I also think this blouson floral print dress is a great summer and fall option… especially when paired with a these cute booties (which come in a few color options). I bought a plaid dress last year and lived in it… so I think this option would be great for fall, and I love it paired with these over the knee boots (which I own and love from last year). I also own this dress (wore it while I was pregnant and still love it) and it’s a great basic that can be dressed up or down (size up for a looser feel). Dress it up with these over the knee boots (a great dupe for the Stuart Weitzman pair) or down with these stylish kicks and this leather vest. I also think this dress is a great option for a dressy summer event, love the relaxed nature of this striped lace up shirtdress, and think this eggplant body con dress is an excellent versatile option.

Loungewear: I love, love comfortable loungewear. One of my favorite things is blasting the air, getting cozy with a blanket, and sipping on a glass of wine (wine not optional). I bought a few pieces from the sale to do exactly what I just laid out… like these cozy shorts and jogger pants (which I already own from last year… I bought them right after Harper was born). I also bought these slippers… since I think it is finally time to retire my 7 year old pair of uggs. This cardigan is perfect for a cold fall evening, bundled up by the fireplace (which I know is kind of hard to imagine in the middle of summer…). So, if you can’t imagine that, this adorable printed robe is a great option (also so cute as a gift to bridesmaids for any of you recently engaged ladies out there!).

Other Favorites (think tops, sweaters, and bags): I have always had a love for open back pieces and my favorite top from last year is back in some pretty fabulous color options (size down, as it runs large). I also think this tank version is great for these warm summer temps. This oversized grey sweater is gorgeous, and I think this lace up sweater and crossover sweater are great options for casual fall days… especially when paired with these jeans (I snagged these as they were on the top of my list). This saddle bag in rust is beautiful for fall and is a perfect everyday option. Lastly, this basic striped top and lace up back top are favorite basics.

Baby Products: My favorite nail trimmer for those little newborn nails is on sale, as is Harper’s favorite chew toy. If you’re looking for a stylish diaper bag, I think this backpack version is a great option and an excellent price point. I’m obsessed with these woven moccasins (little man option here) and Harper has these glitzy kicks in silver, but I love the gold color. Annnnd, if you’re looking for a great carseat, I own this one, love it, and it is marked down significantly.

I’ll be sharing my favorite workout options (there are some great ones) on Wednesday… so stay tuned.
