Thoughts For Friday + Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Shoe Picks

TGIF Friends.  I hope everyone has had a great week so far, I for one am ready for the weekend!  We are going to the Yacht Club tonight with some friends and then we have two birthday parties tomorrow.  

This little lady is growing up so fast, I wish time would slow down just a bit. 

I stopped by this week to visit my friend Kerry Steele.  She just moved to Charleston and has a new studio at Redux.  She painted a big painting for over our couch and I can't wait to share it next week.  I am in love with all her paintings.

Since the kids were both in camp this week, I got to do a little solo shopping by myself downtown which never happens.  I had some great luck at Anthropologie.  This dress is hands down amazing.   It is so soft, the material is awesome.  They only had the red color in the store but online they have black, green, and cream.  I am wearing a size small.   I figure I can wear this into the fall with a cute jacket and booties. 
I loved this adorable dress, it was sold out but now back in stock online with a ship date of next week.  I am in an XS for sizing reference. 

We saw the movie Secret Life of Pets last weekend and now Sterling and Frances are obsessed with Gidget.   That's Gidget trying to sip my Whispering Angel rose:)  The movie was really cute, I think I enjoyed it as much as they did. 

Matt and I finally finished Mad Men and I have to say I am so sad it is over.  It is the first show we have loved as much as Breaking Bad.  I looked forward to watching it every night after we got the kids in bed.  I kind of feel a void in my life without Don Draper.  We just started back on Bloodline though, everyone keeps saying the second season is better.  

I made the most delicious Summer dinner this week.  Roasted Salmon served over pureed butterbeans with whole wheat couscous and an arugula salad with watermelon radishes.  I will share the recipe next week if ya'll are interested.

 I ordered a few things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yesterday including these Running shoes snd booties.   I had to time to scroll through all the shoes yesterday and these are my top picks from the sale!  Most of these brands will sell out so best to shop early. 


For the price these shoes are a top pick.  They come in 4 colors and are only $59.  I love the nude and brown colors.
These Rag and Bone Booties are my top pick for an investment piece.  They are still pricey even on sale but so worth the splurge.  I can't tell you how often I wear my Rag and Bone Newbury and Harrow booties.  I had a hard time deciding between the stone and asphalt colors, but I went with the stone.  Keep in mind most Rag and Bone boots run on the small side, I always go up a half size.  

I meant to include these in my collage but this is a great buy.  Ugg slippers are my favorite.  These would make a great gift too.  They come in gray and cream knit. 

I will share my favorite Beauty items from the sale soon, so many great picks.  I ordered this set with the shoes.  I am a sucker for a good pink lip color.

I am working really hard on this one, I have a hard time saying no.  Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by the studio, Natalie. I loved painting a canvas just for your space.

OHHHH- Mad Men was one of my very favorite shows ever!! I was the same- so sad when it was over. I genuinely missed the characters! But BLOODLINE... I thought the first season was good, and the second kind of dragged until about halfway through, but once you get through the end of season 2, you will NOT regret it!! SO GOOD!!!!

Yes, please post the salmon recipe. I've never had puréed butter beans before.
