Fran's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Happy Friday everyone! This week I am postponing this week's top 10 (just a little) as the Nordstrom sale opened to the public and I really wanted to share some of my picks with all of you. I typically find the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale overwhelming, over-hyped, and honestly, a little annoying, but this year as the offices start to reopen, I've begun thinking about (or panicking about tbh) my current non-existent work wardrobe and I figured a new work wardrobe was a good reason to peruse the sale. I ended up finding quite a few pieces, both work-related and not, that I thought were a good deal and worth sharing. I surprisingly found a lot of really cute jackets and beauty items in particular!

The sale is officially open to the public so below I've rounded up pieces that are still in stock (as of this morning). Find all of my picks at the bottom of this post, but a few notes directly below:

My Latest Skincare Routine

Since becoming a "real adult," aka living alone in my own apartment, taking care of myself, being financially independent, and all of that ~fun~ stuff (lol, not), I've learned to prioritize self-care and the importance of putting intentional effort toward doing things that make me feel like I have my sh*t together. One of those things specifically has been developing a skincare routine that really works for me. I'm excited to share my latest and greatest skincare routine, in partnership with Maelove!

This Week's Top 10

Happy Friday! Getting back to NYC and returning to my apartment this week has been... well, it's definitely had its ups and downs. I am still adjusting to my "life" and routine here, but overall I am feeling a bit more motivated and just overall more at peace than I did living out of a suitcase and running away from the city. I am actively trying to adapt to city life a bit more, and that starts with not leaving for weeks at a time every month. Of course, my time in Wisconsin and with Joe was fabulous, but it's unsustainable to, like, pretend I still live there, without putting in much effort to make NYC feel like my home now. Just working on finding that balance! I'll be here all of August so I definitely think that will help me shift gears!

Anyway! Happy Friday, let's get into the top 10 of the week:

Why I'm Obsessed with Revive Superfood Smoothies

If you watch my Instagram stories, you've seen that this week I have been starting most mornings with a Revive Superfoods smoothie. In full transparency, Revive sent me a box of their products to try, but writing a blog post wasn't part of the deal. However, I'm here anyway because I am *obsessed* and I really think you all need to at least allow me a minute to explain to you why I think this is an amazing concept that can benefit your life, too. 

This Week's Top 10

1. Did this week fly by for anyone else? I was supposed to head back to NYC on Tuesday but wasn't quite ready to leave Wisconsin, so I bought a new flight home... I can't believe I finally head back to my apartment tomorrow after being gone for two weeks!

2. Taylor Hill's log cabin home tour was revealed on Arch Digest this week, and her Nashville home is easily the dreamiest space I've seen in a while.

3. Did any of you watch the Gossip Girl reboot premiere?! I don't know why for some reason I can't find myself interested at all, even though I *loved* the original GG.

This Week's Top 10

 1. Happy Friday! This weekend is Joe's birthday and I am very excited to be in Madison to celebrate with him! It has been such a lovely and relaxing week here so far, just cooking together, and going for runs along my favorite paths from college. 

2. I shared the July mood board this week here! Check it out and download your new desktop and iPhone wallpaper if you haven't yet!

3. I recently got an Instagram Ad for this dress and I don't think a dress has ever been more me. I literally need it, except I don't, because I have nowhere to wear it :')

July Moodboard (Desktop + iPhone Wallpaper)

Happy July! I hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July weekend! I spent the Fourth in St. Louis with my grandparents and then Joe, which was super lowkey but lovely. We went to an arcade bar, ate amazing barbecue, and watched the fireworks right under the Arch. The weekend, as always, went by too quickly but I'm happy to be in Madison this week at Joe's apartment to spend time with him and then celebrate his birthday this weekend! This month's vibe is all things red, white, and blue, of course, as well as general summer energy like beach days, tennis, and hopefully some parties here and there. I channeled those vibes to create the July mood board, and I hope you love it!

This Week's Top 10: Fourth Of July (Sales!)

1. Happy Fourth of July weekend!! OMG, how are we already here?! 2021 is just flying by now that we are able to enjoy so many activities again. June was such a fun month for me and I definitely plan to recap it soon. In the meantime, you can check out my new YouTube video I shared this week for a little bit of a recent recap, particularly featuring my weekend with Elizabeth last weekend! 

2. Tomorrow I fly to St Louis to see my grandparents, and then Sunday/Fourth of July I will be spending time with both my grandparents and Joe, who is also heading to St. Louis (he's from there)! Monday, Joe and I will head back to Madison together and I'll spend the week (his birthday week!) at his apartment there- so many adventures, yay! 

3. Soo many great sales are happening this weekend! I just bought this bikini top + bottoms last weekend and it's now on major sale (I am so annoyed now that I paid full price, UGH!) -- highly recommend scooping it up while it's on sale, it's probably my favorite suit I've ever owned, just so cute and makes me feel so good! For reference, I sized down (bought both in a small!).
