Hello, hello!

I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day Weekend! My family’s weekend plans got moved to next weekend due to weather so I’m looking forward to some familial catch up and beach time then but, being at home with the boys instead was, honestly, just what I needed. It allowed me to get caught up on work, which I always fall behind on when I’m traveling, and rest. It was almost alarming how tired my body was, hah! But anyway, I’m feeling so much better and excited to tackle a new week!

Because my trips to Italy and Curaçao were back to back, I was stressing a little on what to pack! Naturally, I hop online and peruse the new arrivals on Nordstrom because it never fails me. I picked up this tank top [that I shared here] and wore it the first night in Curacao. I grabbed this pink and white striped top that I wore one night in town for dinner. I picked up this tank top in gray and white. They are such a great basic and I wore the gray one under a pair of white overalls and the white one under a striped romper. I also grabbed this top in orange and this adorable basic cami but didn’t end up wearing them before the trip ended but look forward to styling them soon! I love the ruffle and button details! It was so comforting to see so many pieces available that were suitable for a vacation!

Here are some other things that caught my eye and they’re all under $100:

The other thing I love about shopping at Nordstrom before a vacation and especially within such a short window of time is that they have affordable Next Day shipping and free returns! They also have free shipping, of course, but when you’re in a pinch, I love to know that I’m only paying $15 as opposed to some other sites that are upwards of $50!

Speaking of vacation, I have a general travel post coming y’alls way this week so if you have any questions you want me to answer in it, be sure to leave them in the comments section below along with where you’re going on vacation this summer! 🙂 Have a great day, guys! Thanks for stopping by! xo.

    I do love those wedges! I wish they didn’t hurt my feet immediately after I put them on! And that top, has been in my J.Crew wish list for months. I finally bought it over the weekend but it is backordered until July 🙁

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

    I’m going to London and Paris the week of July 4th and I am so excited! I’ve never been (well I’ve been to London but it was 22 years ago) so I’m not quite sure what to pack. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I also love that Nordstrom actually delivers next day when you pay for it! Did you know they do price matching too? If you see an item cheaper somewhere else start an online chat and they’ll give you the cheaper price! xAllie

    Love this outfit! Comfy and adorable!

    Traveling to London and Paris very soon. When you travel over there, do you get an international plan with your carrier or pop in a SIM card once over there?

    Also, best app/map I should download before heading over to London in case service is spotty?

    Thank you!
