Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020!

So I know I say this every time, but you guys… The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is seriously epic this year!  If you are not familiar with what the hype is all about, unlike most sales which mark down older merchandise, it is NEW Fall items that are majorly discounted during this sale and then return to regular price at the end of the sale on August 31. So essentially, a PRE season sale of some of the bestselling brands!

It can actually be a bit overwhelming, so I have selected a few of my favourite, more reasonable items for this wish list! This is the time to snag yourself a pair of Spanx Faux Leather leggings… the cheapest they will ever be and they are such a wardrobe staple. My favourite Brixton Straw Hat is also included in the sale. Another popular item is the Barefoot Dreams blanket… this is a curl up on the couch on those dreary fall day staples. Also the best time to snag a pair of boots that will be on heavy rotation for the upcoming months. I have a hard time limiting myself to just one… so many cute options to choose from!

3. Long Sleeve Knit Midi Dress: This is probably #1 on my list. I am obsessed with midi dresses + this one looks so cozy + flattering! Sale: $35.90 After Sale: $55.00

4. Plaid Boyfriend Blazer: This could be a serious Fall staple for over jeans, dresses + leggings… another must have for me. Sale: $59.90 After Sale: $99.00

8. Print Tiered Miniskirt: I always snag a couple cute minis to wear with tights, high boots and cozy sweaters in the Fall months. And although the print on this one is called “dots” I see leopard…. right?!  Sale: $25.90 After Sale: $39.00

9. Barefoot Dreams Leopard Cardi: Essentially wearing a cozy blanket as a sweater… SOLD! Sale: $79.90 After Sale: $134.00

12. Fleece Jogger Pants: These joggers are so dang cute! Im planning on grabbing the purple + teal. I have worn all the joggers in my wardrobe NON STOP over the last few months so its definitely time to add a couple new pairs to the lineup. Sale: $24.90 After Sale: $45.00

13. Faux Leather Shirtdress: Two things I absolutely love- faux leather and shirtdresses… together at last! Looks like it might be a little on the short side so planning on pairing with tights. But seriously such a fun one. Sale: $49.90 After Sale: $78.00

14. Pointed Toe Booties: NEED NEED NEED! Literally the perfect ankle boot. I usually buy a pair of tan ankle boots every year because they go with everything. I am also loving the  ‘Bone Croco’ colour this pair comes in. Sale: $89.90 After Sale: $134.95

15. Raw Hem High Waist Skinny Jeans: I don’t actually own a pair of this brand of jeans, but these ones look super cute. I will only buy high waisted and they look like they would be really flattering. For this price I’m willing to give them a try! Sale: $28.90 After Sale: $39.00

One Dress, Six Ways!

One thing I love buying is a super versatile item of clothing. I have been living in this H&M tank dress. It is only $17.00 and comes in a handful of colours. For such a simple dress, I get a surprising amount of compliments every time I wear it. I also own it in a few colours because it is one of the things I have been living in this Summer. Sleeveless, midi length and a super breezy material. The ways to style it are endless and I thought it would be fun to show you a few ways that I have worn it 🙂

 

Summer Styling: Add a pair of wedges + a straw hat and you can instantly add a bit of chicness to it! These are also both also staple items in my wardrobe!

For the Office: Blazer, belt + heels instantly add an element of professionalism. These blue light glasses have been a total game changer for all the time spent on the computer!

Cute Work look

Running Errands: Favourite kicks + a denim jacket! Super comfy + effortless 🙂

Layered Look: for the cooler days that will soon be approaching. Layer with a cute sweater or button down with a fun pair of wedges or ankle boots when Fall comes!

Canada Day Outfit Inspo!

Hey everyone… it’s been a hot minute! I’m so excited to be back writing my first post in the last few months. Life just got a little crazy for a bit (you know, with the newly appointed role of homeschool teacher etc!) which I’m sure was the same for a lot of you. But I’m feeling like I am starting to get a grasp on this (hopefully) temporary “new normal.” And then somehow this week is suddenly JULY! How did this even happen?! I feel like Summer always goes by so fast. With Canada Day quickly approaching on Wednesday, I wanted to round up some cute outfit ideas for whatever your plans may be… I’m sure the gatherings are going to be a little bit quieter + smaller this year, but I am still looking forward to celebrating this beautiful Country that we are so blessed to live in!

10 Boots I am loving for this Fall!

There are SO many adorable boots for Fall right now. I had such hard time choosing just 10 for this post, but I managed! I kept my selection to more affordable options, all under $100.00 (with the exception of number four- the OTK boots from Goodnight Macaroon, but they ALWAYS have a 40% off sale happening which brings them to under $100!)  Trends I am personally loving in footwear right now is obviously animal print: leopard, crocodile and snakeskin.  I am also obsessed with all of the Western inspired booties. And of course studded. I always love embellished and studded boots.  If you are looking for something fun this season, I’ve got you covered 😉

 

FALL BOOTS

 

One. Snake Print Bootie // Two. Combat Boot with Metal Chain // Three. Cognac Western Bootie // Four. OTK Suede Boots // Five. Slouch Heeled Boot // Six. Studded Motorcycle Boot // Seven. Beige Suede Anke Boot // Eight. Black Suede Bootie // Nine. Leopard Bootie // Ten. White Leather Croc Print Boot

 

For the sake of full disclosure, I actually own 5 of these boots myself. And I can vouch that comfort is totally a priority for me! I would wear every single pair of these. And perhaps by the end of this Fall I just might… LOL! Happy shopping friends.

Our Electric Bike Adventure!

Back in July a couple girlfriends and I thought it would be fun to ride our bikes to a few of the local wineries. Well let me tell you, we greatly underestimated how lengthly and difficult it would be on our cruiser bikes… LOL! It took us 90 minutes to even get to our first winery, Vista D’oro. An hour in, when we still hadn’t reached our destination I actually phoned my husband to ask if he could pick us up at the end as there was no way we would be riding home as originally planned.  At Vista D’oro we met Chris, a local business owner who was actually setting up to launch his electric bike company Fraser Valley E-Cycle the next day! We laughed, told him he was a genius and what a better idea that was compared to our cruiser bike adventure.

A couple weeks later Chris reached out to me to see if I would actually be interested in trying out one of his E-Cycle tours. I had never been on an electric bike so I was a little bit nervous, but before our ride Chris gave us a full explanation of how to operate the e-bikes and a full safety briefing. It really doesn’t matter how experienced or unexperienced you are, the electric bikes are incredibly easy to ride!

I can honestly say I had even more fun then I was even expecting to! Our bikes had three pedal modes for riding: traditional pedalling, the pedal assist system (PAS) which propels you along as you pedal, or throttle where you can sit back and literally let the bike drive itself. The E-Cycle was so user friendly and let me tell you, full throttle mode was pretty amazing after a glass of wine going up a steep hill… LOL!

img_4981

You can completely customize your tour depending on that you would like to see. South Langley has five local wineries to visit, beautiful parks and great trails to ride through.  On our particular tour Chris took us to three venues. The first stop was Glass House Winery. This is one of my favourite wineries. The tasting room is beautiful and afterwords we sat out on their picturesque patio sharing a bottle of rosé and the most incredible charcuterie board.

img_4974

We then stopped at Backyard Vineyards for a wine tasting. It was so effortless to zip from one winery to the next on our E-Cycles! We didn’t even break a sweat 😉

Our final stop was the Fraser Valley Cider Company.  The cidery is in its third year of operation and it has been really cool to watch how it has grown since the beginning. (I actually blogged about a visit there a couple years ago- read it here!)  They have the yummiest ciders and it is just such a fun spot to spend an afternoon or evening at! Like a little local gem. We had lots of people asking us about our E-Cycles and I could honestly tell them we were having the best time! I’m a bit obsessed 🙂

img_5040

img_5011

There were a few different options for renting the E-Cycles:

HOURLY– 60 minutes $20

  • For a short trip, simply rent by the hour!
  • Includes Helmet & Safety Briefing

HALF DAY– 3 HOURS $40

  • departing at 10:30am & 2:30pm daily.
  • Includes Helmet & Safety Briefing

GUIDED TOURS– 4 HOURS (the option we chose!) $80

  • See all the best sites with the help of a local expert!
  • Includes Helmet & Safety Briefing

img_5059

Chris was such a fantastic tour guide and honestly it was the best way to tour the local wineries.  We all had such a blast! For any additional information, make sure to check out the Fraser Valley E-Cycle website 🙂
