I am so excited to share with you my weekend get away I took to Utah. I should clarify that by weekend getaway I mean it was around 36 hours round trip, but it was 36 hours straight for the soul. Best news yet, I leave again for another one next week. And my packing list is already done, because its exactly the same:
Its Monday, I got back from Utah late last night & its raining here in Cbus = Today is one of the days where I can write off anything as a “coping justification”. Nordstrom wasted no time in taking that queue right upon themselves in my time of need for retail therapy. I literally hate to love you, Nordstrom. I got on and looked at my $800 cart I racked up (despite a 40% off sale), and further resented this gorgeous store. To help with my despair of not getting all 27 things I wanted in my cart, I am sharing with you in hopes that we all collectively get the 27 things, because that’s what friendship is, correct?
It’s the Bye Week!!! In college football employee terms that loosely translates to THE BEST WEEK OF THE SEASON. No game on Saturday = an entire weekend to live and breathe as a human being. Given this incredibly glorious information, what does that mean for me? What it means every year…. Girl’s Trip. Packed up the bags, threw on my new fall outfit, and we are off!
Everyone loves “fall”. Even people who don’t experience an Ohio Fall (shout out to all of my friends in Florida and Texas who have no idea about the overwhelmingly perfect crispness in Ohio fall air). So it’s officially here, marked by yesterday being October 3rd, every Mean Girl’s indicator to get their fall on. I have also linked up my favorite pair of fall colored pants (in two colors because they are that magical) and my two year running blanket scarf for every occasion– that is also under $10.
It is only right to end this month the way we began it. The Nordstrom Sale. For the full two weeks of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, #NSale is about all that came up on my feed. Every “Like it to Know it” blogger in America had their best #NSale items linked up and ready to roll and I carefully strategized what I was going to buy for days (yes, I had to wait until it opened to the general public because I am not Nordstrom Royalty, yet.) After weekly scheming and a few returns here are the glam finds that made permanent places in my wardrobe AND that are worth their current full price (I had three things I bought that did NOT make this “full price” post. Cause they aren’t. Just being honest.)
