Style Sessions – Hottest 6 Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s one of the biggest sales of the year! Nordstrom cardholders have early access to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale right now, but it opens to the public this Friday 21st July. You can check out everything that will be on sale here!

This is one major sale where things sell out fast, so you’ve got to plan it out and get in quick to grab the bargains. I have been wanting some new active wear for months, so these Zella High Waist Leggings are high on my list – they’re only $35 and have a whopping 450 five-star reviews!

Today I’m sharing the hottest five items that I’ll be shopping as soon as the sale opens on Friday… my style is quite classic, so I always love to shop pieces that are eternally stylish and not trend based. So much of my wardrobe I’ve had for years and the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a perfect time to pick up timeless style and buy some quality pieces that are usually a splurge (or out of the question!).

I’d love to hear from you, what are you hoping to snap up? Do you usually shop classic pieces, or more trend based items during sales?

In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a perfect way to meet new bloggers, showcase your personal style and your blog.

Style Sessions – Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this week! Yay! I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely obsessed with Nordstrom… they have everything and the best returns policy ever. It is my go-to for designer and affordable fashion, and when the Anniversary Sale rolls around you can snag some real bargains.

I wanted to share a few of my all time favorite pieces from Nordstrom so you can check them out while the sale is on. Oh and I’m not the only one in love with these things, for example these black Paige Transcend Verdugo Skinny Jeans have 54 five-star reviews… I bought my first pair last September and quickly fell in love, even buying two more pairs so I have back-up’s. Yes, they’re that good. As a size guide, they fit true to size, so order your regular fit.

This Wayf Blouson Midi Dress is also incredible! It’s so pretty and feminine, but super comfy and figure flattering too. I have both the coral and ivory colors! It’s perfect year-round too, I just add a cute denim jacket or blazer in fall and winter. It’s such a versatile piece too, you can easily dress it up or down with different shoes and accessories. I have major love for this piece and am sure you’ll love it too!

Of course, I’m a big believer that fragrance finishes off any outfit and is essential to make you feel beautiful every day. One of my all time favorite perfumes is Beach Walk by Maison Margiela. I receive so many compliments about this scent! I’ve been on a long search for the perfect beach scent and so many didn’t make the cut. This one is absolutely incredible and reminds me of warm, sunny summer beach days – it’s got all the right mix, pretty summer flowers, a little coconut and salty beach air. I don’t know how they did it, but it truly is the beach in a bottle. This also has 33 five-star reviews, it’s divine!

Style Sessions: 4th of July Outfit – Perfect Star Chambray Shirt

Happy 4th of July! This Splendid Star Chambray Shirt is a favorite of mine and makes a perfectly effortless 4th of July outfit. This look is from a low-key Sunday evening in Santa Monica, oh how I love LA summer nights! This chambray shirt is perfect to wear through summer with white jeans and cut off shorts, then transition it into fall with black skinny jeans. It’s also been spotted on Kate Hudson and like everything, she made it look amazing.

I’m also wearing my favorite jeans of ALL time. They’re the Paige Verdugo Black Jeans and they are incredible. I bought a black pair last year and after a week, loved them so much I went to get a second pair. Then a couple of weeks ago, I needed new dark blue jeans and got myself another two pairs of the Paige Verdugo blue jeans. They fit true to size and I can’t recommend them enough!

I’d love to know, are you a chambray shirt fan too? I am obsessed. I recently cleared out my closet and couldn’t believe the number of chambray shirts I own… and I still don’t have enough! They’re the best. I am completely obsessed with this Rails Chandler Embroidered Shirt, how pretty are the blush pink flowers. Love!

Style Sessions Flashback: A Perfect Summer Outfit

I was looking back through some of my Style Sessions over the past few years and came across a look I really wanted to share with you. It’s such a perfect summer outfit and so easy to wear! I love the crisp white floral top and chic black pencil skirt, the pops of pink and floral sunglasses make it so fun for summer days! Also, depending on the vibe where you work, it can be a stylish look for the office too.

Friday Faves: 5 of the Best Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

I’m excited to share the best skincare products I can’t live without! While makeup is fabulous and we all love it for the miracles it can work, I recognized that I really wanted to focus more on improving my skin so it looks beautiful without any makeup. You know, the old “I woke up like this”… except, for real.

In this quest to improve my skin, both face and body, I’ve been trying many products and have found a few I’m truly excited about, they have been achieving real results quickly. I love sharing fab finds with you and here are 5 skincare products I can’t live without.

Of course, I want to hear from you! Please share the skincare love with our Style Elixir sisterhood here and leave a comment below with a skincare product you can’t live without. I want to keep trying new ones!

Five of the Best Skincare Products I Can’t Live Without

amazing skincare products to swear by beauty blogger style elixir beauty review murad dead sea soap algenist caudalie best products

1. Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Bi-Phase Peel
I’ve been using this twice a week and you definitely feel it working, then straight after washing it off, your skin feels so soft. This powerful yet gentle formula calms and soothes skin, with no irritation or recovery time. It visibly improves skin texture, brightens and enhances radiance for a youthful-looking, glowing complexion. Great for all skin types, it minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation, uneven skintone, fine lines and wrinkles, while improving skin elasticity. With over 3,427 Loves at Sephora, I’m not the only one who thinks this is an amazing skincare product! I am a huge fan of the whole Algenist range.

 

2. Dead Sea Mineral Mud Soap
As part of being more aware of my health and wellness, I’ve been opting for organic products where possible. With Activated Charcoal and therapeutic grade Essential Oils, this is one of the best! It’s also a #1 Amazon best seller for a reason, that’s how I first discovered it. For centuries people have traveled from all over the world to the Dead Sea to slather themselves in its nutrient-rich mud. The concentration of over 21 different minerals offers the ultimate natural skin care. Dead Sea mud draws out impurities, toxins and dirt particles, leaving your skin fresh and clean. It’s also effective relief for skin issues including acne, eczema and psoriasis.

 

3. Caudalie Beauty Elixir
The five-star reviews speak for themselves! I tried this recently in a facial at the Plaza Hotel in New York and fell in love. My skin felt and looked incredible after it. Inspired by Queen Isabelle of Hungary’s elixir of youth, this treatment smooths away fine lines, tightens pores and gives the complexion an instant boost of radiance. It’s become a cult product, loved by beauty addicts, celebrities and makeup artists alike.

 

4. Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield
This is a brilliant product and worth every cent! It’s a skin treatment, primer and SPF 30 all in one! As soon as you apply it, you can see an immediate difference – I honestly feel like my skin looks photoshopped. It blurs imperfections and corrects, while combating signs of aging. Mushroom peptides treat lines and wrinkles by helping aid regulation of collagen and elastin, while a soft-focus complex smoothes and blurs imperfections for improved tone and texture.

 

5. Algenist Algae Brightening Mask
This professional-grade mask has been a go-to of mine for years. When I’m working long late hours into the night, I pop this on as I work to ensure that even though I’m not getting the sleep I should, my skin will still look beautiful the next day. I truly love this product, if I have any blemishes or my skill looks dull and needs a pick-me-up, it works wonders. This mask gently exfoliates with real leaves of sea kelp and delivers powerful antioxidant protection in a beautiful, freshly scented blue-green algae silt base. Its expert formula is designed to visibly brighten, smooth and hydrate, while pampering your skin.

Style Sessions: Date Night Outfit – The Little Black Dress Reimagined

I packed this dress to wear on a date night during our Honeymoon travels and wanted to share a little flashback of it with you. I wore this during NYFW and it’s from LK Bennett, one of Kate Middleton’s favorite designers. I love the embroidered detail at the top and floaty knife pleat bottom – it’s such a fun dress to wear!

You can also style it down for day by changing up your handbag from a clutch to a chic tote and swap the heels for a cute pair of ballet flats.

Style Sessions: Blush Pleated Midi Skirt and Stripes – The Perfect Pair!

Chris and I are enjoying our European honeymoon at the moment! We are leaving Copenhagen today and embarking on a two week adventure visiting some amazing places like Stockholm, Berlin, Oslo, St Petersburg, Helsinki and more. I can’t wait to share it all with you!

Until then, I wanted to share a flashback to one of my most popular outfits on Pinterest. I definitely think a blush pleated midi skirt and stripe top is the perfect pair! Are you a fan of pleated midi skirts too? I think there’s something so soft and romantic about a blush colored skirt, but pairing it with a navy and ivory stripe top keeps the look modern and not too ‘girly’.

Style Sessions – Casual Weekend Outfit ideas – Stripes and Distressed Denim

Lately I’ve been keen to share some of my go-to casual weekend outfit ideas and nothing is better (or easier) than a classic stripes and distressed denim combo. This  outfit was from last Sunday morning when Chris and I went to get a coffee. He hates waiting around for me to get ready (even though I actually don’t take long at all to get ready… he thinks anything over two minutes is a long time! We’ll just never be like guys… am I right?!), so a simple stripe shirt and jeans are quick to throw on and so easy to accessorize.

I’ve been obsessed with these new ‘Bella’ mirrored sunglasses from DIFF Eyewear, don’t you think there’ just something about mirrored shades at elevate a look instantly? I have a few pairs of sunglasses from DIFF and there’s just something different about the lens, the color makes the world look seriously gorgeous. I noticed it the second I put them on and made my Mom try them on too – she was like ‘oh wow!’. They’re also polarized too, which is great for $85! Of course, my Converse kicks are always on high-rotation too – love them.

Chris and I leave for our honeymoon in Europe this week and couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be sharing our adventure on Instagram, so be sure to follow along and join us in Europe!

Style Sessions: Wedding Series – Papinelle Floral Bridesmaid Robes

It was wonderful to share our wedding day and special wedding video with you in my post yesterday. In case you missed it, be sure to check it out here. We had such a magnificent day!

I want to take you further into the day and share some of the special elements. The best place to start is, of course, the morning of our wedding. The night before my wedding day, I stayed at my family home and invited my bridal party to join me for a fun slumber party. My parents home is on the water, so we enjoyed walking down to the beach for a seafood feast at a restaurant, then came back home to watch Father of the Bride. It’s one of my favorite movies and absolutely perfect for the night before your wedding!

Before we started watching the movie, I surprised my bridesmaids and mother with a gift – these gorgeous floral robes from Papinelle! I absolutely adored them and knew they all would too… you know when you have an amazing gift for someone and get so excited to give it because you know they’ll love it? That was me for weeks before the wedding! I just couldn’t wait to give them their floral bridesmaid robes in the pretty Papinelle gift boxes. Everyone was thrilled, we all put them on straight away and watched the movie together before heading off to bed. The night before my sisters wedding she hardly slept a wink, so I took a light sleeping tablet and it worked perfectly, I slept eight hours and woke up all refreshed with nervous excitement for the big day!

Wedding Series – Papinelle Floral Bridesmaid Robes

We all loved wearing our matching robes while getting ready the morning of the wedding. When choosing robes for the girls, I really wanted something feminine but not too girly – the mix of blush pink floral with a navy background achieved this perfectly. I also want to make special mention of the tailored cut, Papinelle robes and sleepwear all have a super flattering shape that suits women beautifully. The material is a luxurious mix of silk and cotton, so they feel just beautiful against your skin.

Oh and the length, they aren’t too short! The delicate lace trimmed hem sat at knee length, which gave a stylish and sophisticated feel to these floral bridesmaid robes. When it came time to get changed for the church, no one wanted to take them off – we all said they were so pretty, the girls should just wear them to the wedding!

Since the wedding, we all enjoy wearing them at home daily. It’s such a special reminder of a wonderful day and our friendship with each other. If you’re a bride-to-be, I have to say robes are a brilliant gift for your bridal party and mother – I also definitely recommend checking out Papinelle and their beautiful collection.
