Friday Finds: Nordstrom Sale Favorites (Last Chance!)

This week flew by for me. What about for you? The only "Finds" you need to know about today is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! There are so many awesome items-- all on MAJOR sale. I am still trying to decide between the color of the scalloped flats I want to go with. I love suede black (perfect for fall) or the nude! 

Most of these items are all under $100! Click on the purple box to shop the product:

Shop the rest of my favorites here:

There are some adorable things on sale for kids, lots of dapper menswear and awesome home decor on sale, too.

Don't forget the sale ends on August 3rd and prices go back up to normal! Finally, there are still some tickets left for our Seattle Bloom Bash Workshop this fall! Would love to meet you. 

Happy Shopping!

Inspiration in the Sunset

This past weekend we went to the beach for the day, and goodness gracious! This sunset. I've always been enamored by the pastel hues of a sunset. When I first moved to Michigan, it was a common occurrence for me to say to my boyfriend, "Look! It's so pretty!", pointing out the sunset in the distance, in the middle of dinner on the porch or driving somewhere in the evening. He took note at how much joy this beauty brings me, and now he's often the first to point out a sunset's saturated palette. It warms my heart :)

I think what I love so much is how unique each sunset is from another. The clouds and vibrancy of the colors are always different and beautiful in their own way. I've always found such inspiration from sunsets. They're simple, they're colorful, they make the water sparkle, and God made them. That alone is kind of the coolest thing!

I rounded up a few beautiful home decor items inspired by the beauty of a sunset.

Coastal and sunset-inspired home decor:

Do you love the sunsets as much as I do?!

The Perfect Gift Box

If you know me, you that my love language is found in handwritten notes and gifts. I love love love to give special little things to friends and family (hey, it's fun to receive them, too!) Fun fact: a handwritten note from my boyfriend melts my heart more than going out on a date sometimes :) 

Anyways! All of that leads me to one of my new favorite finds: BOXFOX.  If you love gift giving, you will quickly fall in love as well! Sometimes we don't have enough time to shop for and then ship the perfect gift to our mom, sister, or BFF, so the geniuses behind BOXFOX do it for you! You can shop pre-curated gift boxes OR build your own! If you want to send a little motivation to a friend who loves working out, you'll love the Move box. Have a friend who just became a new mom? The Hey Mama box is perfect. Can't think of the best way to ask your girls to be your bridesmaids? Send them a Bridesmaids BOXFOX. (Seriously tucking this idea away for future use!)

Chelsea, the owner and creative director behind the gift box shop, let me build my own BOXFOX and the day it arrived was one of the happiest mail days I've ever experienced. Want to see what I included? 

First, I have to note the quality of the pale blush boxes is incredible. 

In my box was a static spray I keep in my car now, just incase static gets the best of one of my outfits on the way to a client meeting. I also got the yummiest smelling Gardenia candle, bath salts for a nice foot soak (after teaching a workshop, this is the only thing that remedies tired feet!), a pink water bottle to carry on the go (I try to drink 2-3 of these per day), and jewelry cleaner wipes.

These bling wipes are quite amazing. My rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings have never looked better.

I sent a BOXFOX as a birthday gift to a friend and she loved it so much-- almost as much as I loved putting it together. Best part? The gift boxes are affordable and at different price points, perfect for every budget. So, who's going to send a Boxfox next time they're in need of a birthday gift, bridesmaid present, or a just-because token? This girl is! I'm even thinking of making these my client gifts at the end of a design project. If you're a current client of mine pretend you didn't read that ;)

If you could chose any box in their shop, which one would you pick out?

Home Decor Favorites

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is popping with amazing deals on clothing and accessories, but have you overlooked the Home department?! If so, I'm showing you all my favorite interior picks from the sale. I love Nordstrom for their easy, neutral and classic aesthetic. I bet you do as well! Here are some faves:

I ADORE that bar cart and heaven help me-- those Mr. & Mrs. glasses?! I might need those one day ;) Add a touch of rustic glam to your bathroom or kitchen with these brass soap dispensers. Do you have ugly countertops like I do in my kitchen and bath? You can dress it up with a little marble tray!

You can find the clothes and accessories sale here. I pulled all my favorite things from the sale and showed you last week! Did you get anything yet? 

Enjoy your Thursday! This week is flying :)
