Happy Friday! It has been a week over here! My girls started High School on-line at home and while we aren’t running around as much it still felt a little crazy getting everything figured out. From class schedule issues to tech issues to time to get back in strict routine issues.. we’re all feeling it! I couldn’t help being a little bummed for my girls on their first day. They miss their friends and the social side of school so much! They are for sure doing school at home for the first quarter (end of Oct.) and then their schools will reevaluate. I hope they can go back at some point this year. Kole starts on Sept. 8th and things are looking good for him because our numbers have dropped and he’s in a smaller school with a good plan in place to keep the kids spaced apart. I will cry tears of joy if he can go back! I know you moms of Elementary school boys are all feeling me and nodding your heads right now.. ha. ;)
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale ends this Sunday (SO good this year!) and today I’m sharing a few other home favorites I picked up that are still in stock! These simple white towels were one of the first things I snagged because we can always use white towels. I’ve been slowly transitioning to all white towels for my girls for every day because it makes the laundry so much easier to just toss them all in together!
These towels have amazing reviews and so far have been a hit with my girls! They are so soft and plush! I just bough another set for my bathroom today before they go back to full price.
I picked up a few hand towels for my powder bath too. :)
I’m using this stunning throw as part of my fall decor this year.. so beautiful and soft! It comes in 3 colors (this is the beige oatmeal) and is one of those throws that looks perfect draped over a chair but is also cozy enough for movie night on the couch. My favorite type of throw. :)
El’s bedroom shelf got a quick re-fresh this week! We took everything off when we re-painted her room last year and then I never got around to styling it again so it has basically looked like this for months now.. a nice dumping ground for her stuff!
Here is the after! So much better.
I ordered this fun Palm trees and sunset art to be the focal point on her shelves. It’s so beautiful and will go well with the other prints we are putting on her wall. I also fell in love with this ceramic pineapple jar candle the second I saw it on sale this year! Such cute decor for summer or a girls’ space.
Other than those two new items I just shopped my house quick to see what I could come up with! This honestly took 30 minutes and made my wonder why it took me so long to get around to it. I’ve learned that it always helps me tackle a project when I have at least one new item to use. Have you ever felt that way? Something new that I’m excited to decorate or organize with makes a project feel fun instead of a daunting chore I’m dreading and putting off. It can be a simple $10 candle or bin but it always motivates me! Ellie’s palm tree artwork came in the mail and I was instantly excited to style her shelves. Funny how that works. I’ll have to explain to Kenny that really it’s a good thing I love to shop because for me shopping = productivity.
Not so sure he’ll buy into my new theory but I swear it’s true! Ha.
I love this print so much I ordered a few other beach themed prints to try around the house. I also ordered this Wild Poppy Framed Art for Fall! These are my favorites..
We also bought El a new duvet cover from the sale! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this fun white duvet. I wanted this same look in the comforter (you know how I feel about duvet covers lately!) but it was sold out in the size we needed. El has always had a duvet and doesn’t mind them so I ordered this for her and we are so excited about it!
I have always been a huge fan of white bedding because you can add so many different pillows and throws to create a new look any time you’re ready for a change. The diamond pattern on this duvet is so much fun! It adds such great texture and style.
Plus it just screams clean! Ellie really wanted a lot of white in her room so that’s what we’re going with. The ballet slippers art has been there from the beginning (bought if for her when she was 10 and we moved into our house) and it works well with the white/soft pink color scheme. We might switch it out for something more “teen” or leave it. We haven’t decided yet. I would love to get a rug for her room and a bench for the bottom of her bed but El is funny and doesn’t want them! Crazy girl. I wanted to do a wall treatment in this room too and she wasn’t having it. I’m still trying to convince her that we need the rug and bench, but at the end of the day it’s her room and I want her to love it. Kenny always tells me “you get to decorate the rest of the house.. let the girls do what they want in their bedrooms!” And I say “Ok girls! Do what you want! But let’s maybe change your paint to this color and add this and swap out that… trust me you’ll love it!” Ha.
I just can’t help it. :)
I still need to find something for the top of her shelf and we have something fun planned for that wall space on the other side of her closet, but her room is slowly coming along! (I shared her new frames and mirror on the other side of her room in this post.)
Nothing like new bedding. I’m still so excited about my new comforter too! I shared more details in my last post. There are so many good items in the N sale for HOME this year! Still marked down through Sunday! I hope you find something on sale that you’re excited about too. :)
Below are some of my fashion favorites that are still in stock!
So many cute shoes this year!
This cardigan is darling and just $31! One of my favorites from the sale. I’m surprised it’s still in stock!
LOVE this black Madewell top! It’s such a great fit.. perfect length and will go with anything.
These leggings have been a staple for me for years! I wear them every week to exercise/clean/run errands.
My favorite earrings from the sale are still in stock!
I’ll add links to a few past sale posts with favorites below if you want to snag something before Sunday night when prices go back up! The N sale is just too much fun isn’t it!? I look forward to it all year and I’m sad to see it end!
I have a feeling Kenny feels differently. ;)
