The Summer IT Bag | Cult Gaia Ark

Cult Gaia Ark Bag

Cult Gaia Ark Bag

I'm not one to jump on a seasonal trend and embrace it quickly. My style is very classic and feminine and I like to stick to timeless pieces. However the straw/basket bag trend is one that I am fully committed too and have totally embraced!! It all started with the Cult Gaia Natural Ark bag. I've been eyeing this bag for the longest time - there is constantly a wait list!! Randomly I was browsing the site and the bag was in stock in size small and I clicked add to cart and never looked bag.

I've styled the Cult Gaia natural ark bag several times on the blog. It is one of my most worn bags this season. Last seen (here, here, here, here, and here). The bag is surprisingly spacious and I'm able to fit many things in it. I even manage to get my polaroid camera into it with room for my wallet, keys, phone, lipstick, and sunglasses! I was on the fence between the small and large size, I ultimately went with the small because I though the large would be overwhelming for me since I'm petite. The price difference is only $10 therefore if size isn't an issue I would get the large!





Shop all the pretty colors of the Cult Gaia bags below!! I've been eyeing the pink and white version for a while now!

July Birchbox

The July Birchbox theme is One-Two-Punch! All the products are one in two combos to get you out of the door as quickly as possible this summer. My sample choice product was the Jouer Cosmetics Lip Enhancer. The brand has amazing lip products and I was excited to try this moisturizing lip enhancer. 

Next up is the Klorane dry shampoo, which I am a total fan of. I'm not big on dry shampoos in my normal day to day but when I travel I always pack one and this one in particular is absorbs the oil and doesn't leave a white residue. The Avene Cleanance Expert is a makeup base that moisturizes and matifies during these hot summer days. I LOVE the Avene bran and this product is as amazing as the rest of ones I have. The Milk Makeup Highlighter is quickly become a favorite of mine! I normally don't like stick highlighters but this one is super hydrating and goes on smoothly for all day highlight! The charcoal detox pore cleanser was new to me and I really like trying it out. I love any product that has charcoal and cleanses my pores. After one use I felt that all the makeup and yuckiness from the hot day was striped away and my skin was glowing!

All the products can be found on Birchbox!

Nothing says summer like white denim paired with stripes! You are probably sick of seeing the Cult Gaia Ark Bag in all my summer photos - sorry! I promise to stop because I recently picked up this bag from Free People and I'm obsessed with it!

Have a lovely day!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Public Access

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The once a year, highly anticipated, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here and open to the public!! Early access began last week but I didn't want to post much during it because that is just not cool since not everyone has a Nordstrom card! The sale goes until August 6.

So What Is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why is every blogger you follow posting about it? The NSale is when all the new fall and winter items are on major sale for you to purchase during summer. After August 6 prices go back up to normal and you would pay full price. These items are brand spanking new for the fall and winter season. Nordstrom offers them at a discounted rate for a limited time. 

Therefore it is best to strategize and make a list of all the items you may need for the fall and winter season. Are you in need of a new pair of riding boots? How about a pair of rain boots? Or a new cute sweater for fall? Norsdstrom has it all!!

TOPS



BOTTOMS



COATS & JACKETS



SHOES



BAGS



BEAUTY



A bit of advice, if there happens to be an item you want that is sold out in your size or color be sure to check back in frequently because Nordstrom restocks items frequently during the sale. There are many items that sold out during the early access sale that are back in stock now!

If you are looking for something in particular or need any help shopping the sale feel free to comment, e-mail, or reach out to me and I would be more than happy to assist! Shopping is my cardio!!

Happy Shopping!

Chambray Jumpsuit


I am a huge fan of jumpsuits for summer. They are easy, no fuss, and always stylish! I'm love wearing this linen chambray jumpsuit on these supper hot humid summer days. I can easily layer it with a blouse, stripe tee, or a denim jacket. It's super lightweight and comfortable! I recently wore it on the plane ride over to Cali and I was in heaven!! 

Thanks for stopping by!

A little blush gingham happening today on the blog! I don't own much gingham print but when I saw this top at my local J. Crew I had to get it. It's super lightweight and perfect for summer.

Also wanted to share with everyone the new Harbor Point area in Baltimore. I find myself here at least 2-3 times a week. They have opened up so many spots here such as Ceremony Coffee, Sandlot, and honeygrow! They are starting to develop this area a lot and I'm loving it. I'm constantly at Ceremony Coffee because it is near my office and on my walk home! They have an amazing menu of coffee, food, and occasionally ice-cream! It also happens to be my favorite spot to catch a good Charm City sunset :)

I love a good lip color as much as the next girl. My summer makeup routine consists of tinted moisturizer, mascara, blush, and lipstick. I almost never leave the house without lipstick! I've been wearing this beautiful rose shade by VINTAGE non stop to work. It's the perfect color to get you through a 9-5 work day, and super long lasting. The lip crayon can be worn alone or paired with the sparkling lipgloss for a beautiful layering look. The best part is that the lip crayon comes with it's very own pencil sharpener which is very convenient!

Have a lovely day!
